Charismatic coif guru of the stars/entrepreneur and flamboyant elder statesman of the beauty industry, Beverly Hills’ José Eber is one of the most familiar names in hairstyling. He is also endearing and fun when creating looks for his A-list clientele.
A few years ago Jose gave me a hair makeover for a magazine piece I was working on. It was one of the most memorable afternoons of my beauty writing career. He turned my brunette tresses to gold (literally). It was my first attempt at being a blonde. Not only did the wonderfully quirky stylist make me over but along the way he filled me on beauty tips such as how my eye shadow needed to be blended. “Darling, you must blend, blend, blend,” he pointed out before calling one his salon artists to come over and do my makeup. Which turned out glam. Not too sure about the blonde though.
Cut to now
Since that time Jose has entered large into the world of techno tools and to celebrate the Kentucky Derby this weekend, he is offering 25% off online purchases of his innovative tools of the trade.
