No Shortcuts: How One Stylist Built His Beauty Powerhouse

Data & Featured Lists Editor
3 min read

Julien Farel’s flagship salon overlooks a ritzy section of Park Avenue in New York City, where his team of 30 stylists serve local uptown residents as well as jetsetter patrons from the adjacent Loews Regency Hotel.  

Farel’s come a long way. In 1992, Julien Farel left Lyon, France for Manhattan with only $2,000 in his pocket and spoke little English. To build a reputation as a hair stylist, he spent years apartment-hopping in Brooklyn while handling an average of 37 clients per day.

In this short video, Farel explains what drove him as he built his reputation -- and how it’s helped him keep his business thriving in a competitive market like New York City.
