For Molly Holt’s 16-birthday trip to NYC, her mom, Rosemary, surprised the Tennessee teenager with a makeover compliments of the Upper East Side Paul Labrecque Salon.
Paul Labrecque is a gorgeous, chic, multi-floored salon with three locations in Manhattan (East 65th Street, East 55th Street and Columbus Avenue). Their services include hair for both men and women, make-up application, manicures/pedicures, facials, waxing and hair removal, body treatments and massage. Celebrities like Cameron Diaz frequent the salon for their amazing facials.
Molly has had the same long, brown hair since she was young. With her first prom approaching (and first boyfriend to attend with!), she was nervous about making any dramatic changes that she might regret, but also knew it was time to mix things up.
The gorgeous Kelly Brandt decided to give her a great (and much-needed!) trim in an effort to maintain her length while adding some shape. To give Molly’s hair some dimension, she added some golden dark blonde highlights that picked up on her warm skin tone and eye color. To keep Molly’s hair healthy, shiny, and bouncy, Kelly gave her a deep conditioning treatment using Paul Labreque Repair Conditioner. The look was finished off with some loose curls that will be perfect for her prom next month (she plans to replicate the look at home).
Before Molly got her makeup done by Jasmine, she had her eyebrows waxed. We’ve always heard what a difference waxing makes…but were still shocked to see how dramatically the new shape opened up Molly’s face.
Jasmine applied the perfect amount of color to keep Molly looking natural and age-appropriate, while giving her a boost that she could re-create at home (and, of course, for prom). One of Molly’s favorite tricks? Jasmine used NARS Eyeliner in Kitty (a turquoise blue) to line her lower lid and really make her eyes pop.
Molly walked out of the salon with tears in her eyes (but not enough to ruin her makeup!) and could not have been more thrilled. It was a picture-perfect Sweet 16 gift, and she can’t wait to show it off to her new boyfriend when she returns home to Tennessee.
