Attention, Venice residents.
Local law enforcement has issued an all-points bulletin for Stephanie Hobgood, a veteran hairstylist known to be a real mane-iac.
The striking blond suspect wields a killer pedigree (stints at Frederic Fekkai and Warren-Tricomi) and an impressive roster of celebrity devotees (identities redacted). She was last seen in her new private studio on Abbot Kinney (Henry Diltz photographs, a wall of windows), where she works alone.
Armed with an instinct for flattering face shapes and complementing skin tones, Hobgood does it all: cuts, color, highlights. She’s especially known for her skill with a blow-dryer, executing a sexy, voluminous look her clients call the Big and Bouncy.
If you see Hobgood, contact police immediately. She is wanted for her role in delivering photo shoot-worthy hair at wallet-friendly prices.
A deal that good is downright criminal.
Stephanie Hobgood Hair, 1636 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, between Palms and Venice Boulevards, second floor, Venice (310-775-0299). Cuts start at $100.
