Thanks again to Good Housekeeping for sharing the advice of Paul Labrecque and staff with their readers in 15 Big Beauty Mistakes -- And How to Fix Them. The more good news we can share about living beautifully, the better the world is. And anytime we can help someone STOP doing a terrible “beauty” habit, the world gets even better.
Beauty mistakes sometimes seem unavoidable. That sudden chipped nail after a night on the town (usually after months of meticulous care) can be a spoiler before a meeting the next morning. A looming burn smell after trying six times to get that one pesky curl to straighten can be just as bad. The list can go on and on, but what good does that do us? We’re ready for some solutions!
Check out the entire article on Good Housekeeping to learn the 15 biggest mistakes (link above), and keep reading to learn Paul Labrecque’s expert tips and solutions for a few of the hair mistakes.
Solution: Keep the heat setting on medium, never hold the hot tool in the same place for more than two seconds, and use a heat protectant product.
Solution: Find the brush that is right for your hair. Boar bristle brushes are recommended because they are made from hair, making them more porous and better for the natural scalp oils and nutrients.
Solution: Do not use bleach before or after swimming.
Hunt for those lavish and rich purples to bring out the true autumnal goddess within. Cameron can be seen before the change rockin’ some bright color on her beautiful curls. She came to Paul Labrecque’s Salon and Spa ready for the eggplant purple, a color, the article says, that is a unique way to go dark for the cooler days ahead. With a warning from Cameron to specially care for her curls, Paul Labrecque was able to bleach, mix, dye, shampoo, and style her hair in this great and bold fall color.
For women not in the mood for a bold eggplant switch, Paul Labrecque recommends the delicate babylights as seen on Laurie. To achieve a subtle makeover, Paul Labrecque lifted her natural brown hair with high lift color from L’Oreal and a balayage technique. The simple ombre can be metaphoric for transitioning from summer to fall to winter. Laurie’s ends are darker and thicker looking, which are perfect for the cold winter ahead!
Reign in summer a little longer with this light and fun fall 2016 hair trend: the sun-kissed ombre. From her brunette beginnings to this sun-kissed ombre, it is clear that Stephanie made the right choice. The honey golden blonde color in the balayage method is a style that can last through the decades. It has been trending for years, and we don’t see it going anywhere soon!

Eyebrows are our source for expression. They’re the key to a good surprised look, a look of seduction, a look of happiness, or a look of disdain. Eyebrows grow in all shapes, sizes, and colors, but it doesn’t mean they have to stay that way. Recently, Byrdie published an article “From Tinting to Tattooing: How to Know Which Eyebrow Treatment is Right for You,” featuring brow guru Marlena Orlowska of Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa.
While other experts in the article talk about trimming, tweezing, waxing, threading, microblading, extensions, and more, Orlowska discusses eyebrow tinting.
Eyebrow tinting is perfect for men and women who desire a fuller brow. Instead of tweezing, trimming, threading, or shaping, tinting leaves the hair where it is and adds to it with a makeup masterpiece. Tinting adds an extra dimension.
Tinting eyebrow hair works best with fine brow hairs. The semi permanent vegetable dye used in tinting at Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa sticks only to the hair, so this treatment works well when there is hair to dye. It will not fill in any gaps by coloring the skin.
Brow tinting is an affordable eyebrow treatment, lasting anywhere between one and three months for only $15 on average. It’s best when performed by a professional because brow tinting is actually illegal in some places.

Trouble with thinning hair, ladies? You're not alone in your search for sexy amidst your days of new beauty treatment regimes. Paul Labrecque said it best in a recent article for PRiME Women Magazine, "Thinning hair with age may be at the top of my list of pet peeves!"
The good news is that even with the days of estrogen replacement behind us, we are able to treat, disguise, and live with thinning hair.
Illude yourself and others away from the truthfully thinning hair atop your head to a beautiful and full look. Paul advises, "My job is to let you come to the realization that in the midst of a thinning cycle, you like the memory of long hair. However, maybe your long hair is aiding in exasperating the fall out."
He recommends layers to give movement or a bob to give the appearance of full ends.
Take a stroll down memory lane, and picture your hair color throughout your lifetime. Were you a brunette with sunkissed highlights? Were you a natural blond or redhead who was always searching for the extra color lift? No matter the natural color, Paul Labrecque says ombre and other balayage color styles are the way to detract the eye from the bare scalp exposed by thinning hair to the beautiful ends that are kissed with color.

Our hearts are happy today. Our mission to make people feel confident, beautiful, sexy, and full of life has been fulfilled by a pleasant woman who wrote an inspiring and helpful article about treating adult acne for Today.
Jamie Stone, a young woman who survived high school and college without any acne, was faced with cystic acne as an adult. She shared her thoughts for overcoming adult acne in her article, “6 things I wish I knew before treating my adult acne.”
Here’s where Paul Labrecque comes into play: Tip 5 says, “Do spot treat with the right products.” one of which is Biologique Recherche Lotion P50. Jamie says, “I met a facialist who insisted that this product would change my skin forever. She was right. I used it pretty religiously for the last year of my acne and still turn to it when I get breakouts. The P50 helps speed up the skin’s natural exfoliating process and helps maintain the acidity level.”
If you’re currently battling cystic acne, we also recommend that you give Lotion P50 a try.
