From neighborhood nail spots to L.A.'s most masterful masseuse, Hollywood's biggest beauty names tell us where they go to get gorgeous.

While hairstylists such as Danilo (Natalie Portman) and Enzo Angileri prefer to cut their own hair, Katy Perry's hairdresser Jen Atkin sees Gregory Russell at Andy Lecompte (616 N. Almont Drive) and Robert Vetica prefers Johnny LaRusso at his eponymous salon Robert Vetica Salon (465 S. La Cienega Blvd.). Beyonce's makeup artist Francesca Tolot also is a fan. "That's what's so great about having my salon," says Vetica. "You can get it all done in one stop."

Portman's makeup artist Pati Dubroff loves Carol Vasquez Prince at Chris McMillan (8944 Burton Way). "She just gets brunettes," she says. "My hair never looks brassy, and everyone always asks who does my color."

Both Dubroff and Jennifer Lopez's hairstylist Tracey Cunningham hit Bellacures (205 N. Larchmont Blvd.), while Shailene Woodley's makeup artist Gloria Noto likes Sun Nails in Echo Park (2616 Sunset Blvd.). "It's super-affordable, clean, and they have amazing massage chairs," says Noto. "I like to keep it simple -- $40 for a mani-pedi."

Keri Russell's makeup artist Tina Turnbow likes the Triad Facial by Dr. David Colbert at the New York Dermatology Group (119 Fifth Ave., New York City). Hairstylist Mara Roszak (Olivia Wilde), Atkin and makeup artist Lauren Andersen (Jessica Alba) all see Shani Darden (310-745-3150).

Cunningham, Andersen and Atkin go to Wax (7924 Melrose Ave.).

Both Cunningham and Dubroff get house calls from Patricia Smets (213-392-3567) and Oleg (310-592-6144), respectively. "Oleg has been doing my massages for many years," says Dubroff. "He is Russian, strong and masterful. Plus, he has the best smile."

Dubroff enjoys Korean spas such as Century Sports Club (4120 W. Olympic Blvd.) and Crystal Spa (3500 W. Sixth St.). Noto also is a fan of Korean treatments, saying, "They give the most intense massages, and you get to hang out in the saunas and tubs for as long as you'd like."
