A Brief Hair-story of Time
A cave woman fashions a brush out of a stick and saber-toothed tiger teeth. Bed(rock) head becomes passe.
Wigs are all the rage. Perfumed starch powder acts as the original dry shampoo.
The Early 2000s
Tracey Cunningham emerges as Hollywood’s go-to colorist. Drew, Cameron, J.Lo, and others rely on her handiwork.
Cunningham joins forces with pro stylist Neil Weisberg (formerly one half of the Neil George powerhouse) to open Méche (French for “highlight”). Situated on a prime swath of Burton Way, the 3,000-square-foot full-service salon houses 22 chairs, manned by a mix of veteran and next-big-thing stylists.
Require head-to-toe grooming? Makeup artists, manicurists, brow aestheticians, and foot masseurs also work the room.
Behold: the Golden Age of salon services.
Méche, 8822 Burton Way, at Herzl Way, Beverly Hills (310-278-8930 or mechesalonla.com). Services start at $175.
