Frédéric Fekkai was a model, a session with Frédéric Fekkai at the fi:af French Institute Alliance Francaise

Did you know that Frédéric Fekkai was a model before he landed in the beauty and hairstyling worlds. He actually got inspired by the first stylists that cut his hair while on the modeling job -and he was inspired to take on the feat of becoming one of the most celebrated names in the fashion and beauty communities. I recently saw him speak at the fi:af-French Institute Alliance Francaise about his roots and future of his ultimate in luxury hair care business.

I love hearing people speak of their business and success in person, at sessions like at the French Institute, and I like the quote Frédéric uses " When I run my hands through a woman’s hair, I feel who she can be.”

While I wish he spoke more about the very early roots of his career it was interesting to hear him speak with Kate Betts of Time style and design magazine about the history and future of Frédéric Fekkai Salons and products and the recent venture with Procter & Gamble, spoke of here on
