My gorgeous UK (and non-US) readers need to bear with while I work myself through some recent New York activity!
On my recent trip to the Big Apple I was given the opportunity to get coloured by the extremely fabulous James Corbett. Well, I say, 'opportunity', I was frog-marched to his salon and told 'he's the best in the world, sit down' (in the nicest possible way).
James is very discreet about his clientele but a little googling will tell you that he is responsible for colouring people such as Kendall Jenner as well as ensuring that Christina Hendricks stayed a glowing red as Joan Holloway on the set of Mad Men.....
James trained under Frederick Fekkai and Louis Licari, and honed his skills with industry legend Jose Eber.
His salon in Midtown is an unexpected hidden treasure for niche brands - across hair, colour and skincare but the nicest part of the operation is Hair 2 Help, the non-profit that James set up to provide free of charge, holistic healing, wellness and beauty services to cancer patients and their caregivers.
The services provided by Hair 2 Help include wig styling, reflexology therapy, acupuncture therapy, makeup application lessons, nutrition counselling and meditation.
Not just a pretty face. ;) I cannot recommend James and his team highly enough.
Thank you for having me JC.
