At 47 years old, Paul Oakenfold's resume is pretty impressive. He's almost won Grammys. He's hung around with Madonna and U2. He's done DJ sets while perched atop the Great Wall of China.
But you know what's even more impressive? His hair. Long, luxuriant, and shimmering with the blondest of highlights, Oakenfold's do is obviously a very expensive creature. In fact, it is so beautiful you can't even be sure it's real.

Yeah, there's that ubiquitous Basel word again ... Private. It doesn't necessarily mean you can't go. But in order to hang with the VIPs, you're gonna have to hustle hard.
Start here: Put in a call to Miami-born bro Ruckus. He's set to provide DJ support for the night, so maybe he can smuggle your average ass past the ropes. Sure, you might still end up alone in a dark Miami Beach alley with a PBR in a paper bag, dreaming of Oakenfold's expensive hair. But screw "private," it's worth a try.
Paul Oakenfold with Ruckus at DeLeon Tequila Sessions. Wednesday, December 1. Wall Lounge at the W South Beach, 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. Visit wallmiami.com.
