Stars: They’re really not just like us (see: Victoria Beckham’s rumored $2 million Birkin collection, Johnny Depp’s private Caribbean island).
Though the lifestyles of the rich and famous may be forever out of reach, their coifs are just a salon appointment away.
Servicing the public for the first time, celebrity stylist Robert Vetica (Salma Hayek and Naomi Watts are clients) has set up shop within the Ciel Spa at the SLS Hotel.
An intimate jewel box of a space with high-gloss flourishes (crystal candelabras, wall-to-wall mirrors), the salon exudes a luxurious vibe in keeping with Vetica’s client-as-a-queen philosophy.
The menu includes color, cuts, and updos, but the main attraction is a customized blowout (i.e., no assembly-line dos) that looks fab and lasts for days.
A session with Vetica himself doesn’t come cheap but might be worth it for those in serious hair hot water.
He never leaves a gal stranded.
Robert Vetica Salon, SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, 465 South La Cienga Boulevard, between Colgate Avenue and Clifton Way, Beverly Hills (310-246-5560 or cielatsls.com). Blowouts are $75.
