“Getting Older Is Knowing Better” — Celebrity Hair Stylist Turned Entrepreneur Frédéric Fekkai on Changing Priorities and Editing Life Make Yourself at Home

    • Society & Culture

Frédéric Fekkai is known for being a celebrity hair stylist, and for reinventing the hair salon when he launched his “day spa” at Bergdorf Goodman. For decades, he’s styled the biggest stars at busy salons in New York City and Hollywood, including Claudia Schiffer, Demi Moore and Martha Stewart. But today, as he leads his hair care brand FEKKAI to a cleaner, more sustainable future, he gets creative in a different environment — his home.  
For this conversation, we’re in Frédéric’s home in Greenwich, CT, talking about his winding path to success, and how his life at home has changed every step of the way. We cover how his modest upbringing in France influenced his creativity, where he gets his sense of gratitude, and why he’s edited his priorities over time. Make Yourself at Home with Frédéric Fekkai.
