Want Hair Like a French Girl? The Secret is in Your Scalp

Posted on February 20, 2018 by Paul Grasso | 0 comments

Great hair is at the top of every woman's hit list, and something seemingly impossible to achieve. We invest copious amounts of time and money into what has become one's ultimate accessory — and still your hair is too thick, too thin, too oily, too dry, too dull, too bright, too light right now, really dark right now, it won't grow fast enough, it grows too fast to maintain your blunt bob, blowdrying takes too long but you desperately need it, you'd be a frizzy mess without your flat iron but it's slowly frying every precious strand... should you just cut everything off? Probably.

Amidst these list of woes, there's one integral part of your hair care that goes almost entirely ignored. If you're not battling dandruff and/or a deep shampoo fanatic, your scalp is generally forgotten. Crucial error. For anyone inspired by 2006 instant classic Aquamarine, and has done a deep dive into growing long hair, fast, they'll know the scalp is exactly where you should be focusing much of your attention. While it's all very well to do a weekly deep condition and go light on the heat (these are very good things), hair stylist and manager of Manhattan's ,Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa Frederic Moine, says it's time to shift our focus — and the salon is leading the charge with hair & scalp therapy treatments.

The chic Upper East Side location, Moine says, is perhaps the only salon in New York that offers new technology created by Parisian brand, Biologique Recherche, which focuses on revitalizing the scalp (subsequently promoting hair growth and keeping your hairstyle fresher, longer). The key to unlocking your best hair is in the stimulus and sebum (hair's protecting agent) control of the scalp. Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 Capillaire hair and scalp treatment is actually the famous beauty company's famous skin treatment adapted for hair and includes highly activating/purifying ingredients such as horseradish, lemon, sage, myrrh and burdock extracts and witch hazel. Recommended for women with oilier hair — that is, the entirety of New York women contending with the subway and erratic weather conditions on the daily — Paul Labrecque offers a luxurious 60-minute treatment and blowout, which will actually leave your hair more manageable and glossy for weeks to come.

Six different products are used throughout the process, and trust me, this is pampering at its peak. The hair is wet, while an initial lotion that balances the scalp's pH is applied to every part of the scalp; the hair is quite literally divided section by section and the Lotion P50 Capillaire is pressed into each part of the skin. Moine says it's rare that the scalp ever receives this kind of affection and it works wonders in restoring the scalp. Next is the Biologique Recherche Oxygenating Shampoo that protects fragile hair, followed by a balm that restores shine, before an anti-aging mask is applied to the hair and activated under a heat lamp for 20 minutes; this is followed by a deep conditioner, but let's not forget the generous scalp massage that also comes with the treatment. After the hair is blown out a final serum is applied. For 6-8 weeks, your hair will be infinitely easier to style and will look and actually be healthier, with each fiber more resistant to damage and improved texture and shine.

If you repeat the treatment regularly, as you would with a trim, your hair is also likely to grow exponentially faster and stronger. Sweet dreams are made of these. Of course, well the full treatment is rare and the price of an expensive haircut (the two-hour process will set you back $150), you can, in fact buy each Biologique Recherche product and perform the regime on yourself, once every few weeks, at your leisure. Of course, if even that is too much of a commitment for you, than take Frederic Moine's advice and give your scalp a little more loving — take time to really massage when you shampoo, or give yourself head massages regularly, your hair will thank you for it.

Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa is located at 171 E 65th Street, New York, NY 10065. Call 212-988-7186 or email to schedule your appointment.

Paul Labrecque's Top Hair Style Tips and Trends for Women Over 50!

Robin Wright, Ellen Barkin, Lisa Rinna, Sharon Stone, Jane Fonda, Angela Basset all have one thing in common, they shed their long locks and are now rocking shorter sexy hair styles.There comes a point in every girls life when you know its time to recreate yourself and accept that maybe long hair just isn't what it once was. I see hundreds of clients every week at my salon in NYC, . I guide many 50+ women to transition into shorter hair styles. It's one of my favorite things to do! More often than not the results are amazing and my clients are so happy they took the plunge.Sharon StoneRobin Wright, Ellen Barkin, Lisa Rinna, Sharon Stone, Jane Fonda, Angela Basset all have one thing in common, they shed their long locks and are now rocking shorter sexy hair styles.There comes a point in every girls life when you know its time to recreate yourself and accept that maybe long hair just isn't what it once was. I see hundreds of clients every week at my salon in NYC, Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa. I guide many 50+ women to transition into shorter hair styles. It's one of my favorite things to do! More often than not the results are amazing and my clients are so happy they took the plunge.

So how do you determine when that time comes for you? There are key factors that help a girl make this momentous decision: 

1) Your hair quality isn't quiet what it used to be. Elasticity is gone and your hair looks lifeless and frizzy 

2) Your hair overall feels thinner, has less body and has trouble holding a blow dry

3) You look tired no matter what you do.You just don't look like you used too. You feel that every time you look in the mirror you are unhappy and feeling old 

4) You're bored and want a change. Or the worse of all 

5) When you turn around and fling your hair people looked shocked that your long hair is yours!

                               Robin Wright                                                                        Jane Fonda

OK now we decided it's time to take the plunge with a new hair style. How do I decide what shape is good for me? Well it comes down to your facial shape, facial features, hair texture and lifestyle. Use little hints to self analyze and use as a guide:

My nose bothers me. Pick a style with no middle part. Never wear a straight fringe. Push your bang to an asymmetric side angle, wear a textured style to pull ones eye away from your nose.

I hate my round face. Then try an a-line bob. Wear the front longer than your chin so it softens the area we all hate, our necks 

My eyes are two close together. A stronger bang will trick you into focusing on your hair more than your eyes. 

I have a strong square jaw. I almost look masculine. Then show that jaw but keep your top length longer. It will give your short cut the femininity that your strong jaw makes you forget. 

My face is long and narrow. Wear a short cut that has more width than height.

Angela Basset

Ok a few rules of thumb...Short hair should never look perfectly placed. When a hairstylist calls it suburban that's not good. Have fun remember hair can look different every day with products like Paul Labrecque Style & Finish pomades, mousses and gels. Don't be afraid to funk it up. Grow older with style and remember my motto a change is as good as a rest...

Till next month Paul Labrecque

Paul's Best Hair Loss Solutions That Can Make a Difference

Posted on April 26, 2016 by Paul Labrecque | 0 comments

Fine and thinning hair has always been a concern of many men and women. I've seen it time and time again with clients in NYC at the Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa. As you age hair loss can be a result of many factors such as stress, menopause or hormonal changes that come during and after pregnancy. Some you can control most you cant. Luckily today there are many quality products that can make a difference in promoting healthier and stronger hair thus minimizing hair loss over time.

The key factor in deciding on the best products for you is to focus on both the hair and scalp. A healthy scalp is the foundation for growing healthy hair and minimizing hair loss. The first step is to properly exfoliate, balance and eliminate any excess oils on the scalp to ensure a healthy hair follicle for maximum growth. Like soil to a tree your scalp is the nourishment for your hair. 

After you have addressed the health of your scalp there are many quality products on the market that can repair damaged hair, add volume or strengthen hair to maximize growth and the appearance of fuller thicker hair. See my recent appearance on Good Day New York that talks about many hair loss treament options: 

The Regenesis Hair Loss Treatment line is from the makers of the popular Revitalash Eyelash Conditioner. Using the same technology and a patented Bio-Peptin Complex ingredient these products are delivering amazing results for my clients. There is a Regenesis Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner that gentle cleanses and conditions hair to promote volume. The most popular product is the Regenesis Volume Enhancing Foam. A simple to use foam that can be massaged into hair and scalp. Apply daily to the most affected areas for best results. Use regularly and you will see re-growth and strong thicker fuller looking hair. This especially effective in regrowing and strengthening baby hairs around the temple and side areas. You will also see thicker hair at the scalp minimizing a less defined part line.

The very popular french skincare line Biologique Recherche has now introduced a collection of hair care products. Using the same science and philosophy of highly active ingredients these products will transform the condition of your hair and scalp. The Biologique Recherche Serum Cegaba & Bioproline is specifically formulated to slow and reduce hair loss, stimulates the hair shoot, help strengthen hair and anchor it to the scalp. Dermatologically tested to lengthen the growth phase and shortens the loss phase, shifting the ratio from -33% to +46%. This is an easy to use scalp serum that is massaged into your scalp after shampooing.

Biologique Recherche's #1 selling Lotion P 50 is now available as a lotion for hair and scalp. Lotion P 50 Capillaire is an amazing product with 50 active ingredients to help exfoliate your scalp, cleanse and restore ph balance to help maximize hair growth, strengthen hair and minimize hair loss. Like Lotion P 50 1970 Toner for your skin this is a must have addition to your hair care regiment.

Good hair often starts from within and the proper diet. What you eat and put into your body can often have a dramatic affect on the condition and health of your hair, skin and nails. As we all know maintaining the proper diet is not always the easiest thing to do. Viviscal Hair Nutrient Tablets can help. A once daily supplement super enriched with biotine and marine complexes will help strengthen hair, nourish and encourage maximum growth. Use daily for best results over time. This is an easy no brainer that will supplement your hair care treatments for even better results.

For more immediate results and various options to style your hair Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa offer a variety of hair addition solutions. From no glue extensions, to custom wigs, hair pieces, weaves and the very popular Halo Couture Extensions system Paul Labrecque can help. There are many options that can help you achieve the look, length and volume you desire. Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa offers Free one-on-one private consultations to determine the best system for you. Custom colors and a variety of style options and lengths are available.
