Cohl Katz makes everyone feel like a celebrity.
The talented hair stylist and makeup artist works with a devoted clientele at Dream Spa. The handsome stand-alone home on the Post Road next to Crate & Barrel is a perfect spot for the low-key but very creative Cohl.
But she finds time to make actual, legit celebrities look even better than usual.
Her clients literally span A (Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin) to Z (Zelda Williams).
The other day, she prepared Jodie Foster for her “Silence of the Lambs” parody on the “Late Show Stephen Colbert.”
Cohl Katz adjusts Jodie Foster’s “Clarice Starling” wig.
Then it was time for Tracy Morgan. His new TV series debuts this spring.
And she posed for a selfie with longtime client Tom Hanks.
Then it was back to Westport. Her customers needed her to make them look fabulous too.
When Derma Clinic foofed its final facial just before Christmas, loyal customers were bereft.
Meanwhile, those holding gift certificates to the popular day spa were out big bucks.
It’s been a few months, but if you’ve held on to your certificates, Lori Dodd is riding to your rescue.
She’s owned Dream Spa for nearly 10 years. Now she’s honoring valid Derma Clinic gift certificates — if the holder purchases the same value gift at Dream Spa.
It could be for yourself (“great for the regular spa-goer,” Lori says) or as a gift (don’t forget Mom — her day is Sunday!).
“All we’re trying to do is help our community, earn the trust and patronage of former Derma Clinic clients, and do the right thing,” she says.
So if you looked forward to a hot rock massage, warm ginger scrub or seaweed body wrap but thought you were SOL — worry no more. A solution is at hand.
It’s a Dream come true.
