The Paul Labrecque Hair Care Range

With all this humid weather our hair has really been suffering, what tips and advice can you offer when it comes to fighting the frizz?
Frizz can be fought by conditioning regularly, I brought out Repair Condition for its milk proteins,  also I only recommend boar bristle brushes, and most importantly Color Finish non alcohol droplets to seal in blow dry fights frizz, and locks out humidity

I want to go from work to wow in 15 minutes what quick fix style tips can you offer?
Sure,  my one trick that’s a knock out is that during the day you make a tight pony tail high on your crown and with the long length of the pony twist it and wrap it around the pony band locking it to the base with hair grips, this will give you the chic business look for day. At night pull it down tip your head over and loosen with your fingers using Paul Labrecque Volume finish in your roots, this will give you a sultry movie siren waved look that will open jaws as you walk into a room.

What are the styling tools and products in your kit you can’t do without?
In my kit I always have a wire pick comb, a must for height and putting hair up. I never go anywhere with out scissors and a razor in my roll, bangs must always be perfect neither too long or too short.  A blow dryer is always in my bag, with a diffuser I use a diffuser to lock in spray and keep in wave and I never do a single job without my 3 favorite products, Repair Style for great texture, Volume Finish to lock in volume, and Color Finish to keep frizz at bay.

Always look at your face shape when choosing a style

If I didn’t want a drastic cut but just wanted to update my hairstyle what would you advise?
I always advise to look at your face shape and then decide. Layers should always be long enough to cut into areas of our face where we hold our weight, and move away from areas that we want to show off our bones, if a stylist can do this you will never look bad.  Often little trims taking this in mind does way more than a great big cut.

I have shoulder length hair and I want something totally different for autumn/winter, however I want something contemporary. Do you have any suggestions?
Contemporary means movement, so I would layer your hair keeping in mind your face shape, and density of your hair.
 
During your travels do you find any city is more cool and setting the trend for now?

I liked Berlin, lots of young artsy folk that I found very inspiring.   I love artsy communities, like a fashion designer I look at young aspiring talented people who cut and color their hair. I try to imagine what they were going for and if the paint brush and chisel were put into my hands how I could communicate that idea with integrity and style.

What’s next for Paul Labrecque?
We have spent lots of profit trying to make Paul Labrecque a recognized brand, as opposed to just a person.  I guess when I began this quest I never realized how tough that would be and what capital it would require.  I hope what’s next is that the brand gets the recognition from an investor that will secure our standing.  There was a time where Paul Labrecque was about my 2 hands, I have been so fortunate to be blessed with creativity, and the sharing of what I do can make possibilities limitless for me. The dedicated people we employ, and for the standing of the company and brand we have created.  What’s next for Paul Labrecque is unknown, but whatever it is I know it will be exciting!
