From Power Breakfast to Power Beauty: How Extremely Busy Clients Inspired a Style Mogul
In the mid-1970s, a financial crisis in Manhattan prompted Loews Regency Hotel owner Bob Tisch to call local influencers to the Park Avenue hotel to discuss how to stave off disaster. These morning meetings led Tisch to coin the term “power breakfast.” Since then, the hotel’s restaurant has become a hub for driven movers and shakers to rub elbows over the first meal of the day.
The tradition inspired French celebrity stylist Julien Farel to offer a “Power Beauty” menu when he moved his flagship salon to the Loews Regency in 2014. Understanding his clients were often crunched for time, he created a way to pack three pampering services into one ‘Power Hour.’
In this video, Farel explains how he arrived at this solution -- and what’s needed to anticipate your clients’ needs, regardless of your industry.
