WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) - The owner of a West Hollywood beauty salon who claims to have worked on Hollywood celebrities has been charged with plotting to kill a competitor.

Prosecutors say 55-year-old Dawn Melody DaLuise was charged Friday with solicitation of murder and remains jailed on $1 million bail.

She could face nine years in jail if convicted.

DaLuise owns the Skin Refinery, which offers services such as waxing, facials and electrical stimulation. Prosecutors contend that she tried to hire someone to kill the owner of Smooth Cheeks, another salon that opened several months ago next door.

Smooth Cheeks owner Gabriel Suarez told KABC-TV (https://bit.ly/1oyNqRL ) that he never suspected he was the target of a murder plot.

DaLuise’s website claims that she’s served celebrities such as Alicia Silverstone, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Christina Ricci.
