Paul Labrecque

A true hair visionary, Paul Labrecque is at the apex of the hair care and beauty business. Paul has been awarded and selected as one of Vanity Fair's "Top Stylists" in the United States. His one-of-a-kind engaging and personality combined with his creative hair-styling techniques, sophisticated sense of style and eye for color have resulted in a star-studded list of clients, three highly successful Manhattan salons, a Philadelphia location, a private label luxury line of hair care products and a thriving retail business. Paul is frequently recognized by the media and beauty professionals for his expertise and ideas. He brings exciting new styles, techniques and products to the industry, further expanding his international reputation.
 

Trained in the art of hair cutting and coloring in London, Paul Labrecque embarked on a career as an artist that took him on a worldwide tour, working with countless celebrities and models. After years of demonstrating his exceptional techniques to hairdressers throughout Europe and North America, Paul returned to New York to start a new role. After serving as artistic director in some of Manhattan's finest salons, Paul opened his own salon/spa on Manhattan's Upper West Side in 1988. With his natural penchant for carefree cuts, innovative techniques and custom-blended color, the Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa quickly became recognized as one of New York City's go-to beauty destinations.

 

Paul also takes effortless beauty to the next level with his luxury hair care collection. Tested by Paul Labrecque at Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa, his namesake product line is designed to solve everyday hair challenges without any the fuss. After rigorous in-salon testing, Paul developed six distinct product lines to address the unique needs of every hair type: Curly, Color, Straight, Volume, Repair and Daily. Each line is comprised of a simple 4-step regimen; shampoo, condition, style and finish, that work synergistically to deliver dramatic results for truly sexy, sophisticated hair.

 

Paul's philosophy centers around the premise that style and color should simply reflect an individual's own personality. His expertise exemplifies this, as does his luxury hair care collection. Paul's "simpler is better" approach to beauty, hair care and style is the key to natural beauty and the best way to celebrate an individual's own unique personality.

 

Paul has been credited with introducing the U.S. to groundbreaking hair and spa services from around the world, including hair replacement, extensions, thermal reconditioning, color varnishing and most recently the launch of his "Ready to Wear" line of groundbreaking fashion hair. "My passion is fashion and beauty! Making people look and feel their best is what I love to do…making them feel confident, sexy, and full of life," says Paul. "I am committed to bringing my clients the best in beauty from around the world."
