so my who-ville knots have become not just a professional necessity, they’re also the perfect apparati to keep errant fly-aways out of my microphone and mouth. yet, of late, they’ve become a more permanent fixture on my “crown” due to their concierge capabilities for long-term dirt, bugs, and poorly aimed food.

 although this monsoon of mess has been growing into more of a public safety issue week by week as i forget to wash, cut, and comb anything scalp related.

  tuesday morning when i heard one of my knots “moo” i was forced to call in the experts.. 


yesterday i played frogger up and down the 405 freeway as i leaped my way up to vito esposito aka mad genius. he’s responsible for the gorgeous locks of two of my favorite heads of hair: jaclyn smith and maria shriver.

i found vito on the recommendation of my always in the know friend, mary jo matsumoto.

mary jo has exquisite hair, and insisted i see vito after months of hearing me groan about the unhappy state of my stressed out hair. 


vito’s salon is a gorgeous italian oasis bunked out in the heart of beverly hills.

perched directly over rodeo drive, it’s best to arrive early to enjoy the quiet, peaceful sunlit sanctuary where the cappuccino and limoncello is as good as the ones you get in milan, and are served with a smile from handsome men in dark shades.

unlike every single l.a. salon i’ve ever tried {even loved} vito esposito is free of attitude, ego and hollywood pretense. i truly feel as if i’m on a mini-italian vacation each time i visit.


adding to the tranquil ambience is the best hair wash on the planet. on my first visit, the twenty minute, out of body affair i had with the shampoo girl, had me rethinking my opinions on polygamy; suddenly i was weighing the pros & cons of picking me up a nice, italian speaking, head-massaging sister wife for back home.

alas, my future signora wasn’t there yesterday, but vito {VERY married ladies} managed to replicate celestial experience.


here is the magician, hard at work, cutting away my fleas and ticks, finding in that nest of madness, some shape and style.


i’ve faced the fact that i’ll never fulfill that lifelong dream of being kelly garrett. charlie will never say “good job angel” to me over a white, radio shack, desk speaker.

but now that i have found vito esposito, my crime fighting arsenal now has more layers, body and shine. 

thank you vito. women and children are once again safe to roam the streets and orange county pilates studios without fear of bug infestation and toxicity.

the vito esposito salon is located at 308 n. rodeo drive in beverly hills, ca

their phone number is {310} 278 9098.
