Jose Eber, born in Nice, France in 1950, has been styling hair since he was 12 and first worked in a salon, located in Paris, at the age of 15. When Eber was 25, he traveled to Los Angeles, fell in love with the city and relocated there. Since 1975 and the inception of Eber’s American career, he has styled many famous clients and created eponymous styles. His clients include Cher, Elizabeth Taylor, Jacyln Smith and Farrah Fawcett, whose unconstructed and carefree 1970’s style was an Eber creation.
Eber is an internationally recognized hair icon and master stylist. He has appeared on major news networks like CNN and CNBC and made guest appearances on television programs such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, Shear Genius and Entertainment Tonight.
Eber has released two books, Shake Your Head Darling and Beyond Hair: The Ultimate Makeover Book. Eber runs two successful full-service salons located in Los Angeles and Plano, Texas, which were created and designed to act as relaxing retreats away from the city, a concept that Eber pioneered. Eber sells and uses a line of specially custom-made products in his salons, which were created by Eber and a trichologist (a hair and scalp specialist). Eber has seen great success with his salons, products, books and recognizable haircuts. In 2008, Eber was honored with a lifetime achievement accolade, given by the Global Salon Business Awards.
