José Eber has a new salon, new partners and a new approach to building his brand.
After two decades on Rodeo Drive, the hairstylist felt it was time for a change and with the help of long-time client, the late Elizabeth Taylor, he secured the former home of Christie’s at 360 North Camden Drive in Beverly Hills for a two-level, 8,500-square-foot salon that opened this month. Reminiscent of luxurious Parisian salons Eber remembered from the beginning of his career, the space, designed with Waldo Fernandez, is high on glamour. There are towering ceilings, light-rimmed oval mirrors, dressers with wrought iron detailing to hide stylists’ product stashes, privacy screens and a sculptural mirror-covered reception desk. A hefty dose of purple on doors and chairs is an homage to Taylor.
