About Frederic Fekkai

Internationally recognized hairstylist Frédéric Fekkai once considered becoming a sculptor. Instead, at 21, he headed to Paris to hone his skills in the hair trade. His next move was to New York City, where Bergdorf Goodman approached him in 1989 to create a salon in the store. This atelier at Bergdorf's served as his launching pad and gave him a platform to showcase his innovative approach to hair, a method that requires clients to stand for a portion of the haircut in order to ensure a hairstyle that is totally proportionate to the individual's overall appearance. In 1996, Fekkai opened his flagship five-floor salon and spa in New York City. As one of the largest salons in the world, it serves as a model for two additional locations in Beverly Hills and Palm Beach. Fekkai's A-list clientele includes Claudia Schiffer, Debra Messing, Renée Zellweger and countless others. When not tending to the world's "best-tressed," Fekkai enjoys traveling the world and spending time with his son. (sources: New Beauty Magazine, FEKKAI)
