You all have definitely noticed how amazing Olivia Palermo’s hair is, right? Well, I do also know that many of you would love to know her secrets and also “who” are the people responsible for taking care of her.
So, the search began! I knew that the professional “behind” Olivia Palermo’s hair would be hard to schedule a real appointment, not to mention, an interview.
I was able to connect with the very kind, André Davis, Olivia Palermo’s hair stylist. He has been the guru behind Olivia’s hair style for the past 11 years! Plus, we also talked to Abby Haliti, responsible for Oliva’s amazing coloring! This duo is definitely unmatchable and one of a kind.
They both work at the Julien Farel Salon & Spa, located inside the upscale Loews Regency New York hotel.
If you want to book an appointment with them, you can mention you read this post, and try to get a spot.
Here are a few secrets and tips André gave me, when we met:
“In the summer, you should always try and use hats, that protect your hair from the sun, besides keeping you super stylish. After all, New York is the perfect city to use and abuse of them.
Using a small amount of sunscreen on the tips of your hair, will also make them healthy during the super hot season.
For fine hair, using a dry shampoo is a good option. And, for oily hair, Paul Mitchell and Oribe have amazing products.
I love the super well-known Ricky’s beauty stores, but my secret in New York is Beauty 35, located at 505 8th Avenue.”
What André loves about his work at Julien Farel Salon?
“Everything. From connecting with my client’s inner beauty and making then gain confidence with healthy hair to offering a good program for them to follow. This will definitely help keep ends clean and a sexy hair. I also love doing dramatic hair transformations. They are always exciting (laughs).”
Thank you André and Abby for your time! You guys are awesome!
I’ll surely be there soon to take care of my own hair.
