Julien Farel, French celebrity hairstylist, opened his first international salon at Capella Pedregal back in July 2009. During his last visit he sat down with me to talk about his new projects and share some vacation hairstyling tips for our Capella Blog readers.
Julien, I am so excited to have you back with us at Capella Pedregal! What surprises did you prepare for us this time?
I am so happy to be back and to have escaped the NYC winter. I came to train the team on my new product line to ensure that we are taking the Capella hair experience to the next level. Of course, I had appointments with a few Capella clients as well. I always love seeing my Capella Pedregal clients!
And we love having you here. Please tell me more about your line of haircare and styling products, what are its benefits, what were your intentions when creating it?
We are taking the lead in the Anti-Aging Haircare arena and by bringing the science of skincare to haircare. Our hero product, Restore brings us a cut above the rest because it is a completely new way of treating the hair, scalp and follicle. Restore is multifunctional, like advanced skincare, so with one product, you can cleanse, treat and condition your hair. Our entire Anti-Aging haircare line is powered by Anti-Aging Balance ‘A2B’ Technology to deliver powerful Bioactives to the hair, scalp and follicle. This results in the optimal environment for hair growth.
It is very hard to protect your hair while on vacation, being on the ocean and under the sun can damage your hair. Do you have any tips and products you can suggest for enjoying the beach and pools without damaging one’s hair?
YES. JF Anti-Aging Haircare Restore is a must for after swimming in the pool or in salt water. It replenishes and rebalances the natural oils of your hair for immediate results due to its ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid. It cancels out a long day of bad hair behavior by deeply penetrating into the follicle, scalp, and hair.
And for a romantic night (say, at El Farallón Restaurant!), you have a trained team at the Julien Farel Salon at Capella Pedregal that can pamper guests. Can you tell me what services would suit such an occasion?
JF Salon at Capella Pedregal can offer hair styling with our cutting-edge products, hair coloring as well as any makeup application. A bold cut that is based on the architecture of your face and silhouette, and reveals your personality can give you the confidence to conquer the world. And, confidence is the sexiest part of a woman.
Thank you Julien! Cannot wait to book my next appointment at the Salon!
