Five minutes with French master hairstylist, Frederic Fekkai

If only one man could epitomize French elegance and ease, it would be celebrated hair specialist and entrepreneur Frédéric Fekkai. This man—who has worked with the world's most renowned celebrities, from Sharon Stone to Meryl Streep and Heidi Klum to Claudia Schiffer—knows what makes good hair. His full collection of care and styling products is now available at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Andrea Karr: How do you define good hair?

Frédéric Fekkai: Good hair is healthy hair with great texture. It is important to have a hairstyle that fits the bone structure and your silhouette, and feels bouncy, feels shiny, feels movement.

AK: How does one find a great hairstylist?

FK: It's all about meeting with a stylist and having a consultation, making sure you feel good about him or her styling the hair. It's beyond the hair. It's someone that understands your personality, your lifestyle, your fashion.

AK: Do you think women of a certain age shouldn't have long hair?

FK: I don't believe in those rules. Especially today, women are getting younger as they get older.

AK: What advice do you give your team when working on red-carpet events? 


FK: Be prepared and have everything in your toolbox, from wigs to extensions to hair accessories. Always, always have meetings prior to the day to make sure you're aware of the makeup, aware of the dress, aware of the styling in general.

Check out these tips on finding the perfect hair stylist.
