If you are serious about your hair … you’ve probably heard about the Sally Hershberger Salons where movie stars such as Tom Cruise, Meg Ryan, Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts all flock to take their locks. There are 3 salons - two in New York and one in Los Angeles. The LA salon is just off Melrose Place and unlike most salons is not located on street level. You have to know where it is … to get there. You take the elevator up to the penthouse … and WOW! There you are … in what looks more like a high tech laboratory on the set of the new CSI - WeHo than a hair salon. All pristine white, with a highly polished mahogany runway, and breathtaking views of the Hollywood Hills. Several stylists buzz around, with their assistants, dressed in black, closely following behind, pre-anticipating their mentor's needs … all offering excellent customer service …
And for the next few hours you are treated like a movie star!
So, which stylist do you choose? The smart choice here is Derek Smart.
