For more than four decades, José Eber, the likable and charismatic celebrity hair stylist, has been in the forefront of the beauty world. He created influential looks through the decades that have endured the test of time and become true classics and his client list has included such stars as Farrah Fawcett, Cher, Jaclyn Smith, Elizabeth Taylor and the Who’s Who of Hollywood. He remains a leading trendsetter in hair and fashion throughout the world. So on Monday when Jose Eber and his Beverly Hills salon team took over the visitors’ center at City of Hope in Duarte there was quite a buzz, if you’ll pardon the pun.
Kara Fox and Evvy Shapero, founders of Glamour Project, and Linda Klein, operations manager at the Sheri & Les Biller Patient and Family Resource Center along with Eber greeted City of Hope patients and fit and styled them with wigs and make-up, and provided individualized professional hair and make-up consultations.
One of Eber’s clients on Monday was an 8-year-old young lady with perhaps the widest smile we’ve ever witnessed. Arpine was fitted personally by Eber with a pig-tail wig which she loved until she saw a really rather modern purple doo, and of course she had to try that too. Eber asked 8-year old Arpine which she prefered. Although the pony tails were nice, she seemed to take a shine to the purple and black wig. Eber donated both to Arpine after she was fitted with the “ more hip look.” He also insisted that young Arpine visit his Beverly Hills Salon.
