Kim Vo the famous hair colorist to the stars, makes celebrities and socialites, richer shades and brighter blonds at his impressive Kim Vo salon at the 3rd floor Spa of the Montage Hotel in Beverley Hills. Kim Vo is the global ambassador for Schwarzkopf and colors the tresses of A-list celebrity clients like, Kate Hudson, Katherine Heigl, Jenny McCarthy.
When I entered the elegant salon inside the Montage hotel spa , the marble floors, granite countertops and wood appointments make the elegant salon feel traditional yet very hip and stylish ; Kim 's salon manager Richard showed me to the change room attached to the private beauty make over room which is practically the size of a hotel suite . The back beauty room is all set up ready for a celebrity glamour photo shoot with light diffusers ; it's a specialty grooming throne surrounded by mirrors with beautiful star quality lighting.
For my color treatment I was shown to a lovely private front room where Kim Vo assessed my hair and it's condition said it looked good ; I expressed it seemed to be getting a little brassy with the sun and dry with the highlights ; he suggested a rich color mixed with his signature glaze and masque to enhance the depth of my color to take away any brassiness and sparkle up my hair with a diamond luster glaze . The results rich brunette base color with sparkling blonde highlights and shiny glossed hair !!
After my color processed one of Kim Vo's hair stylist Negah trimmed my hair. With a balancing act of keeping both of my feet straight on the floor the hair stylist squeezed her whole body in-between me and the space between the counter , then quickly trimmed my hair on both sides while balancing. I had never experienced quite a close balancing act from a hair cutter . It was a little much for me, her being so close in front of me with scissors and then cutting my hair so quickly but I survived;- and the end result seems to be relatively even cut hair . She is a professional at blow drying which lasts 4-5 days without a flaw ; my results were amazing ; my hair color looked like a celebrity all shiny and new ;
Kim Vo's choice of rich color added the much needed depth to create a richer shade of color and my highlights popped out further and hair sparkles with Kim Vo signature luster glaze. The staff was really friendly warm inviting and attentive ; I left the salon feeling and looking like a celebrity and ready for the red carpet ~thanks Kim
