NYC Digs: Paul Labrecque Salon

It is about this time every season, the end of the season, where I begin yearning for a refreshing change in my beauty routine, to gear me up for the following months. I hit that point last week where every time I left the apartment, covered in sweat, I felt my hair needed a hairstylist's magic touch to breathe new life into it. Well that dream came true at what I think is the most amazing salon in New York City, the Paul Labrecque Salon! Prepare yourself this NYC Digs post is filled with luxury on the Upper East Side....

 I started the day off with a curly do, tousled by the NYC elements a la Carrie Bradshaw. I was eager to see my transformation as I gazed out at the sunny day on East 65th street.  Before and after lovers beware!! This one's a doozy!

I met hair stylist Jerami back in the Winter, at the fabulous Onassis Clothing Gentleman's Night Out event in SoHo...couldn't get him off my mind since then...he is AMAZING!

And so Jerami got to work...as you see he had a lot to work with! 
I sat coddling my coffee as mornings and I get along never, and chatting.

I felt like a beauty parlor lady in the 50s while my color set 
and I sipped an espresso and read further in my book.

The whole team at Paul Labrecque works like a family, everyone chatting and smiling, checking in on each other and helping out where needed. Here I'm getting my nails done by Manana. I also went down later and chatted with their makeup artist Taymour. Paul Labrecque has a full service spa, as well as nail parlor, makeup specialists, and hair salon. It's a dream getaway for a weekend morning. 

Et VOILA before and after delivered! I was so excited when I saw my new reflection in the mirror, I'm a redhead now! I spent the day getting mistaken for Amy Adams, complimented left and right, and I couldn't have been happier. Jerami did an amazing job, I couldn't believe his talent. The whole staff at Paul Labrecque instantly feels like your family...the kind that send you away looking fabulous rather than frazzled...making you giddy for your next visit. 

Be sure to get over to a Paul Lebrecque Salon asap for your own transformation. Jerami is at the Upper East Side salon, but there is a Midtown and Upper West Side location as well. And be sure to stop by the website to learn some hair tips & tricks as well as get some great products...or start following this blog for a fabulous surprise coming soon...hmm...

What do you think mes cheris?

Love it! The color and style both look fabulous! My sister recently finished school to be a hair stylist, so I let her do my hair for the first time recently, and I've been getting a lot of compliments on it as well. I couldn't be happier, because usually I have to pay $150 or more to get that many compliments. Now it's free. :)

Call me crazy but I definitely thought you were already a red-head, just lighter! In that case, this looks absolutely perfect and I love it so much! It fits you so well.

Jessica said...

Haha yes I was a strawberry blonde so technically a redhead but now my hair is airing on the strawberry side as opposed to the blonde side :)

Thanks girls, I had so much fun, if you are in NYC you should def go see Jerami, he will work wonders!
