Known as the "Colorist to the Stars," celebrity hair stylist Michael Boychuck's clients include Mandy Moore, Jennie Garth and the Hilton sisters. In addition, his work has been featured on the cover of Maxim magazine as well as on TV shows like "Melrose Place," "Baywatch" and "Young and the Restless."
Before opening his 5,000-square-foot salon at Caesars Palace in January 2008, Boychuck started his career in Beverly Hills. He later became involved with some of Las Vegas' top salons, sharing titles like salon and color director and even business partner.
"It is a great feeling to have a salon in Vegas," said Boychuck. "I have three, so I feel three times as lucky."
The posh interior at Color is simply breathtaking. Faye Resnick, a famous Hollywood designer, delivered the perfect amount of sleek and chic sophistication. The salon features sparkling crystal chandeliers, vintage Fendi fixtures, beautifully carved mirrors and gray, white and metallic silver colors throughout.
"The salon has been designed to have a minimal amount of color pigment in it," explained Boychuck. "This allows the stylist to see the real skin, eye and hair tone for max results. It is the most beautiful salon in the world in the greatest city in the world."
And Boychuck has definitely had his share of colors.
"My most unusual hair request was to color a rock star's son's hair purple!" Boychuck said. "Paris Hilton's hair is the easiest since she is ultra blonde and that is my forte."
His expert advice? "My biggest hair tip for anyone is condition your hair," he advised. "Any color, cut, highlight will not look good if it is not healthy with a great shine."
Along with glamorous services like creative hair coloring, highlights, hair relaxing and extensions, Color also offers a variety of fun treatments. For the bride-to-be, there is an in-house hair florist. The hair florist arranges and presents fresh floral hair accessories from all over the globe. For those who are more into the bling, Color also offers HairDreams Hair Jewelry.
For the ultimate girls' day out (or even as a fun couple's treatment), guests can opt for the 90-minute loveseat pedicure. Another unique treat is the Hawaiian pedicure, which includes a star fruit milk bath, a pineapple sugar rub and a hot stone treatment with coconut massage oil.
Other services include eyelash extensions, make-up applications, waxing and even a personalized shopping service. The salon's personal shoppers can assist guests with the latest trends and gift buying. For guests who like to party while getting dolled up for that special occasion, a live DJ spins on the weekends.
"I am truly inspired to have salons that have a great atmosphere and make every client walk through the door happy," Boychuck said.
