BTB: Jane Wilkens Michael: A Beauty Talk with Frédéric Fekkai
July 19, 2018•29 min
Jane’s guest today is the internationally acclaimed style expert and celebrity stylist, Frédéric Fekkai. For over three decades, he has been a dominant force in shaping the global beauty landscape while setting the gold standard for casual elegance and elan. A true visionary and innovator, he created a hair care empire that included seven luxury namesake salons across the country and was also the first to develop an entirely new category of couture-level hair care, that continues to thrive today. His clients included major stars, supermodels, media moguls, trendsetters and social influencers. His credo? The simplest and most natural styles are the most beautiful. He has now turned his passion and enthusiasm to making our entire lives Better Than Before. He and his stunning wife, Shirin von Wulffen, acquired Côté Bastide, a 25-year-old lifestyle brand from his hometown of Aix-en-Provence in the South of France. The couple recently relaunched the business as Bastide, a beauty and lifestyle collection inspired by the wellness philosophy of Provence and founded on a commitment to artisanship and to clean, toxin-free living. On today’s show, Frédéric will share the wonders of Provence, along with his personal suggestions on how to achieve a lifestyle that is filled with exquisiteness, exuberance and extraordinary beauty, health and well-being.
