Hairy Times in the Real OC

laguna-beach-season-1-dvd.jpgThe buzz at Salon Gregorie’s in Newport Beach is that … the buzz is at Salon Gregorie’s at Newport Beach. Celebrity stylist Dusty Simington recently filmed a pilot for a reality show called Making the Cut, about his apprentice hairstylists that’s currently being shopped around.

Sitting in his chair Friday afternoon, longtime client Emily Watkins warned that if the show gets picked up, the salon’s parking lot will be swamped with tourists. And she should know. The Laguna Beach resident spent a recent weekend schlepping around her friend’s 18-year-old son to all the “hot spots” shown on Laguna Beach: The Real OC.

“He said, ‘I want to see all the spots,’ and I said, ‘OK, what are they?’ Apparently, people on the East Coast want to see our car wash.”
