Several weeks ago, I was scheduled to experience a signature RESTORE treatment and a blowout from the talented Julien Farel, whose namesake salons and products attract quite a following. Unfortunately, the day of my appointment turned out to be a rainy and windy mess, not exactly conducive to a fabulous blowout. Luckily, I was able to reschedule and book an appointment with Farel at his newest salon located in The Setai Fifth Avenue. Not only did I leave with a great blowout but Farel also gave me a sensational new style as well as several products from his new line to keep my hair looking healthy. Talk about a welcome relief. It had been some time since I was happy with my hair. In fact, I had been biding my time waiting for it to get to the point of no return when I’d be forced to take action. Without a stylist to call my own, my hair was in desperate need of help. My better half even suggested I pay a visit to his stylist, but I scoffed at the idea of letting someone who charges $8 near my hair. Shallow, I know. However, I’m happy to say it didn’t come to that, as I found that good things do come to those who wait. Of course, now that I’ve experienced a cut from Farel himself, I'm not quite sure how I'll ever be able to settle for anything less.
