Vegas is about to get an infusion of celebrity hair. None other than John Barrett plans to bring his eponymous salon to Las Vegas. The hairstylist, who has a location atop the Bergdorf Goodman department store in Manhattan, plans six new locations in the next three years that includes Las Vegas.
Barrett is known for bringing an "approachable-yet-sophisticated take on beauty " as well as Barrett's Braids Bar and the Ponytail Bar.
No word on where Barrett might locate in Vegas, but expect him to spend some time adding his personal touch to the expansion.
Vegas is already home to celebrity colorist Michael Boychuck at his Color Salon at Caesars Palace, Kim Vo with his salon at the Palms, Cristophe at the MGM Grand and the newest, Claude Baruk at Encore Las Vegas.
