Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa

Last Saturday was our first annual Oktoberfest party, so I wanted to make sure my hair looked as fabulous as my costume (more on that here).

I rolled out of bed and headed to Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa on the Upper East Side.

One of the owners, Brian, greeted me and gave me a quick tour of their sprawling, two-story location which, in addition to the normal salon and spa amenities, also includes a café and makeup and jewelry counters.

One of my worst beauty habits is letting too much time pass between haircuts. Whenever I get a fresh cut I resolve to do better, and come back earlier, but then life gets busy and my hair takes a backseat.

So I was in serious need of a haircut and glaze!

We started with the glaze while I sat in the most comfortable shampoo chair I’ve ever been in. I’m not even kidding – I almost fell asleep!

Then Elana moved on to the haircut.

I always love blogging about haircuts because it’s such an entertaining experience. While I’ll let the stylist know I’m working on an article for Wanderlust in the City, the other patrons have no idea. So I’ll take an excessive amount of selfies in order to get a good shot, and everyone else in the salon inevitably ends up giving me looks ranging from the quizzical “Is this her first haircut?” to the more common “Wow, she must be incredibly vain!”

Something I love about the Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa is how relaxing it is. Usually hair salons stress me out with the amount of noise and rushing around, and I never seem to have a restful experience. But here, even though it was crowded, it still had a relaxing vibe and I left feeling recharged rather than stressed out. And it doesn’t hurt that one wall has floor to ceiling windows looking out into a serenely green garden!

Plus, I may be in the minority here, but I hate making small talk while I’m getting my hair done. I just want to sit there in peace without being prompted to discuss where I’m from and what brought me to New York. So I loved that Elana just got to work, and followed my lead regarding the amount of conversation I wanted… or, more accurately, didn’t want.

I love it! And I’m not the only one. At the Oktoberfest party my friend Jess told me I should wear my hair like this more often!
