Facial contouring with makeup is not a new kid on the block. Highlighting, strobing, every girl who loves beauty knows exactly what I’m talking about. Facial contouring with hair coloring – ‘Eclipting‘ – however is a new thing, if you ask me. When Aveda asked me to come over to NYC for NYFW, they’ve also invited me to visit one of their signature salons in NYC, Spoke & Weal in SoHo (147 Grand St, New York) for such a hair color treatment. SoHo must be one of the most well-knowned Instagrammed areas of the city and I do understand why. It has everything you need, from shopping to eating out, it’s all so picture perfect, you guys. Definitely a must visit if you’re in town. So is Spoke & Weal in SoHo. It’s the much anticipated NYC flagship salon launched Summer 2015 by hairstylist, Jon Reyman and Jon’s partner, California native and nationally acclaimed Aveda hair colorist, Christine Thompson. This 1600 square foot salon features 16 styling stations on the first floor, a color application room on the lower level and a simple, clean aesthetic over all. Everyone who works there has a lot of expertise in the field of professional hair styling and coloring techniques. Thus, I was totally convinced I couldn’t leave the city without a cut and a ‘Eclipting’ color treatment by these guys. Last Friday I was helped by the wonderful Courtney with finding the exact coloring that would suit my face the best. Afterwards hair expert D’Angelo was there to cut and style my hair like a master. What a #hairteam those two are! Eventhough I can’t sing, I honestly nevcr felt this close to being a true Hollywood popstar. Thank you, Courtney and D’Angelo!
My name is Frederique and I run this personal style blog. After graduating from law school in April 2014 – University of Utrecht (The Netherlands), exchange: Uppsala (Sweden) and UC Berkeley (USA) – I built FAB le Frique from scratch and decided to spread my lifelong interest in fashion and lifestyle with the world (wide web). Taking a leap of faith, making a career transition, leaving a known and charted career path is scary. But if the only actual obstacle blocking me from doing what I’m truly passionate about is ‘fear’, I hereby conquer my fears and go forward with my passion.
