Major bummer for LA beauty buffs. After nearly seven years on Melrose Place, Paris-bred (and Hillary Clinton-faved) hairstylist Frederic Fekkai has shuttered his only West Coast hair salon.
We're told the essential luxe chop shop quietly closed about a week ago; it had relocated to the high-end stretch from Rodeo Drive back in 2009. If your go-to mane woman or man was previously stationed at the space, see the farewell sign below to see where they've headed.
No word yet if Fekkai plans on reopening elsewhere in LA; we've reached out to the star-faved hair guru's team and will share any updates when we get 'em.
