Hollywood insiders know Scott Barnes and Frank Galasso. Scott, a makeup artist, has worked with some of the biggest stars out there—Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston among them. Frank, Scott's partner in business and life, is a hairstylist whose client list includes similarly boldfaced names like Kim Kardashian, Leighton Meester and Colbie Caillat. Now regular folk can get bookings, too: Together, Scott and Frank have just opened a small, appointment-only atelier inside Salon Republic at 8000 Sunset in West Hollywood.
The chic space, which is done up in black and silver, is open two to three days a week to accommodate Scott and Frank's busy schedules. For a full makeup application with Scott, expect to pay around $500 (his day rate is typically $5,000); Frank's cuts are around $360 and color starts at $100. If you're working with a smaller budget, Scott's trusted assistant Kip is also available for makeup ($150) and lash applications (from $20). To book with Scott or Frank, call 310-913-4342.
