As a Cali girl living on the East Coast for the first time, we were dismayed when in the winter months our natural blonde highlights completely faded, leaving us more dull brunette than fair-haired. (The horror!)

So when the ritzy Paul Labrecque Rittenhouse Spa and Salon offered us a media visit we jumped at the opportunity. Selected as one of Vanity Fair magazine’s “Top 3 Stylists” in the USA, we felt we were in good hands at his salon.

Located at Rittenhouse Square, the salon has a light and airy feel.


Katrina Williams (@katrinawilliamsbeauty ) was our stylist and she really listened to us so we felt we could trust her.




After a few hours in foils, we were thrilled with the results.




Katrina told us how she got the natural-looking effect:

“I chose a natural warm blonde color and babylights highlighting technique to create organic, dimensional color for a “cali girl” sun kissed effect.”

Our friends asked us if we’d just come back from a trip to California! That was exactly the look we were going for. We’ll be back.

For those of you in NYC, there’s a Paul Labrecque Salon in Midtown Manhattan (in the Core Club.) And if you live in Palm Beach, you’re in luck since there’s also a salon there too.
