BENJAMIN + Selects Apothecary
The master hands behind hairdos that have appeared on the covers and editorial spreads of women’s fashion magazines like Vogue, Nylon and Marie Claire, British-born hairstylist Benjamin Mohapi has – no surprise – garnered a celeb-studded clientele at his fabled, eponymous West Hollywood salon BENJAMIN. And now, with the re-launch of his salon as BENJAMIN with NEGIN ZAND (in partnership with star colourist Negin Zand), the beauty parlour’s following has multiplied exponentially. This expanded iteration of his venture now houses 24 barber chairs in a spacious 3,000 sq ft space, which takes inspiration from C.17th salons with understated, vintage-style furnishings and vibrant pop art lining whitewashed walls.
Post cut and colour, pop next door to Mohapi’s recently unveiled beauty boutique for everything you’ll ever need to keep bad hair days at bay, including Italy-sourced conditioners and masks from family-owned brand Davines, Rahua’s natural oil-restoring Amazonian shampoos, and artisanal hairbrushes by Bürstenhaus Redecker. Meanwhile a variety of skin and body nourishing prods include all-natural plant-based shower gels from model’s fave Earth Tu Face, Fig+Yarrow’s handcrafted organic scrubs, and perfume oils from NYC label Lurk. A-list!
