BEAUTY 90210:
The Montage Beverly Hills, the ritzy city’s newest luxury hotel, has opened with a namesake 20,000-square-foot, two-story spa and a 1,800-square-foot Kim Vo salon. Designed by the HKS Hill Glazier Studio, the 17-room spa is heavily influenced by Spanish Revival and Moorish architecture. At its center is a coed relaxation area with a mineral pool enveloped by colorful tile mosaics. While the spa is owned and operated by the hotel, the 11-station Kim Vo salon is a joint venture between color specialist Vo and the Montage. Vo, who moved his outpost from the Sonya Dakar Skin Clinic to the Montage, believes that the Montage salon will rival his Las Vegas location at the MGM Mirage in terms of performance. Color services start at $200 and cuts start at $150.
