No Diva Attitudes Allowed In This Beauty Salon

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some hairstylists would drop everything if Mary J. Blige or Whitney Houston called them for help – but that’s not the case with celebrity hair stylist Ellin LaVar.

She’s the star of the new reality show Hair Trauma, but she claims it’s her clients who are the real stars – and not just the Hollywood heavyweights that trust her with their hair.

LaVar refuses to drop a scheduled client for a last minute celebrity and it’s a rule she’s stood by for 20 years – ever since jazz giant Miles Davis expected special treatment.

Says LaVar: “I told him he would have to wait until I was done with the person in my chair.”

The jazz musician was so impressed with her that he left instructions for her to do his hair for his funeral.

He’s not the only one that she’s made wait in line, she’s even made Houston and Iman personally thank clients that rescheduled in order to get their hair done at the last minute.

As LaVar puts it, “I wanted the clients to realize that [Houston and Iman] appreciated that they rearranged their busy schedules for them.”

Hair Trauma premieres Wednesday (Oct. 11) on the Women Entertainment cable channel.
