Beauty Night at the Jim Wayne Salon

BeansTalk was among the guests at Beauty Night at the Jim Wayne Salon in Beverly Hills, coordinated by our pals at Rousso Fisher. What a lovely salon, great staff and AMAZING results!! Jim Wayne is a local legend with a justified reputation for being fantastic.

It's a great example of a very cool place, in a great location -- with genuinely warm and kind staff. Despite being in the heart of Beverly Hills, no one encountered an iota of snobbery. The staff asks you what you'd like, and doesn't tell you what they're going to do to you. Color and gloss by Wolf, cut, blow-dry and bright-red extension by Alina, manicure by Kim, wash by Roland. Teena had her hair cut by Homer, manicure by Kim, brows, too. Joelle had highlights by Debbie, cut and blow-dry by Alina, and brows. Organizer Alice had a gloss and cut by Jim Wayne -- face framingly lovely!

We munched on yummy pizza and cookies and drank fancy VOX Vodka drinks (ah, those berry Martinis!)

And in the end, everyone went away prettier and happier.

As Brentwood Magazine has said of the salon: The two-story loft is a gallery housing art and photography from local artists and also the home to proprietor and stylist Jim Wayne and color, extension and thermal straightening specialist “Wolf. ” Known to his celebrity clientele simply as Wolf, his flair for color has graced the pages of Vogue, Glamour, Mademoiselle and Elle.Wayne’s extensive training, and teaching at the Vidal Sassoon Academy has made the duo a hair force to be reckoned with, garnering the attention of Mischa Barton,Gretchen Mol, Carmen Electra and Kim Cattrall. But even those without celebrity status are treated like a star,“every person who walks into my salon get 110%,” Wayne says.
