The Hollywood Reporter: DIY Hair Color, Skin Care and More: Top Salon Beauty Hacks While Isolated at Home
Social isolation is difficult enough without seeing gray hairs sprouting or lash extensions fall onto the computer keyboard or pillow as the weeks go by amid shelter-in-place guidelines.
Salons and beauty emporiums are shuttered, elective procedures put on hold, and dental offices unavailable for cleanings or whitenings by order of the American Dental Association. But beauty gurus are not abandoning their flocks, and many are still staying in touch, communicating virtually and sending out personalized care packages.
“We have been mailing out clients’ formulas to them with all the instruments they need,” says Paul Labrecque, who owns salons in New York, Palm Beach and Philadelphia and tends to the tresses of Renée Zellweger, Warner Bros. chair Ann Sarnoff and ex-Nickelodeon president Cyma Zarghami. “If they need extra help, I will FaceTime with them.” He is also sending kits to new clients after an initial FaceTime consult.
