Le Metier de Beaute + John Barrett = Fashion Week Beauty Musts

Legendary hair guru, John Barrett, gave me the scoop on hair styles to expect for Dennis Basso’s fashion show next Tuesday!


I arrived in NYC on Thursday morning, dropped off my bags at the W Times Square and immediately headed to Bergdorf Goodman (also known as the snob home away from home) to have my make up and hair done courtesy of Le Metier de Beaute and the legendary John Barrett salon (I SO wished I had blonde hair that day, so I could be a Bergdorf Blonde:).  I have been buying Le Metier de Beaute at Neiman Marcus for a year so it was really exciting to have their make up artist make me pretty to kick off fashion week!  Franco (he with the gorgeous skin and curly long lashes) used the Tinted Moisturizer on me instead of Peau Vierge (he thought I needed more coverage) and bronzer that looked scary and dark but instead gave a natural healthy glow.  He finished off with a slick of Creme de la Creme lip gloss that I’m going to go buy right now– it looks like your lips but prettier.  (Jump to see photos!)

Le Metier be Beaute Lip Creme Lip Gloss for $36

Le Metier de Beaute Bronzer for $55

Le Metier de Beaute Soft Touch Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 for $75

My new favorite hair stylist in NYC is Tasha– um, it’s Saturday but my “piecey” rock-n-roll waves are still in tact and look even better than they did the first day!  She used a curling iron and Shu Uemura hair products on me– in under 20 minutes I had runway worthy hair.  If you’re in NYC or plan on visiting, you must have your hair done by Tasha and a make over from Franco  Call 212-872-2700 for an appointment.

The best part is, you can shop at Bergdorfs or dine in the restaurant afterwards to show off your hair and make up 🙂

  1. I just love your hair. I will have to look into that product and buy some. I will have to check them out when I come to New York.

    One thing that would go great with your hair is Diva Lashes from Lashes and Cosmetics.

    I just found them this weekend in a spa in New York. A take Home Eyelash Extension System you can do yourself. They have a special glue that lasts for weeks and new stick band eyelashes that are so easy to applly. The kit also had a new lash press tool that is wonderful and helped to apply the eyelashes in a couple minuets in perfect poition.

    The lashes last for up to seven weeks. You just coat them once a week with the glue so it is so easy. I’m so excited to wake up every morning in my new beautiful lashes.

    My lashes look so awesome and they are water proof.

    They last for weeks. I love it!! Check it out.

    They have some really cool things, great for fashion week…
