Recently I headed over to the House Of Fraser for an event held in Cafe Zest, a masterclass & personal consultation with hair guru, Frédéric Fekkai
The event was held on the 23rd anniversary of the 1st Fekkai salon opening in New York!  Listening to Frédéric Fekkai speak was amazing, it was clear he's a very knowledgeable man with tons of tips & tricks to impart! He was absolutely filled with useful information and even better - he was more than happy to share it! He talked about his background, how he became so successful, what made him create his products and the steps for achieving perfect hair! 

Some of the information he shared in his class:
- He developed his hair care line based on skin care technology
- One thing that is not easy to have is hair shine, it makes your hair look good and it is the first thing people notice about your hair
- Dull hair causes are things like split ends, damage, pollution, colour, and chlorine

Fekkai mentioned three simple steps for perfect hair- 
1. Treatment - using shampoo & conditioner that is right for your hair
1. Drying - this step is very important for getting volume. Wait for your hair to be 50% damp and make sure you apply product only at the roots of the hair on he top of your head, not on the sides. If you apply it to the lengths and ends it will have the opposite effect by making your hair flat & weighing it down. Make sure to apply your product straight onto you hair, flip your hair upside down and only dry the roots. The result = amazing volume & very big hair!
3. Texture - work with the natural texture of your hair whether it's straight, curly or wavy and learn to enhance it. Finish with some Glossing Cream to seal your style

After the masterclass we had one on one consultations with Frédéric where he analysed our hair, telling us the exact products we should be using to improve our hair & achieve the look we wanted! We then received a booklet signed by him with the products he recommended inside! The products he recommended to me were - Brilliant Glossing Cream, Salon Technician Colour Care Shampoo, Salon Technician Colour Care Rapid Results Moisture Mask, Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum, Full Blown Volume Styling Whip. 

We also received a gorgeous goody bag! Which contained, Full Blown Volume Shampoo & Conditioner, Essential Shea Ultra Rich Mask, Brilliant Glossing Cream, Colour Care Rapid Results Moisture Mask and mini bottles of the Brilliant Glossing Shampoo & Brilliant Glossing Cream!

Thank you House Of Fraser, Frédéric Fekkai & Team for putting together a wonderful & informative event!
