Salon, Champagne, and celebrities!
Gorgeous tables of French macaroons, chocolate dipped Madelines and petite fours welcome you to the Juan Florentino Salon in Beverly Hills and you’re directed to the bar to have your personal bottle of Champagne, complete with wristlet, or a Patrice-tini, the cocktail made for the Man of the Hour, Patrice Bisiot. Patrice, known as the “Jet Set Stylist From Paris”, has come to Beverly Hills via Miami complete with a party in his honor.
Patrice Bisiot took to the time to talk with BusyBeeBlogger. He arrived dressed in a dark velvet blazer, tinted glasses and hair that he said may look like he just rolled out of bed, but takes lots of time to look like this! Patrice was very diplomatic about what could be done to my hair, saying that it just needed some, “life”. (And I couldn’t agree with him more)
So, after chatting briefly about my odd fascination with the Tour de France, I asked Patrice why L.A. if he had a clientele in Miami as well as New York? He explained that it was just time, that LA is the place to be right now. LA is a place where you can do anything! That it’s not just work work work, but also how creative you can be. He loves the vibe from Miami and NYC, but feels that LA is the best place to make things really take off, especially with the high-profile clients he has being based in the Beverly Hills area.
Owner, Juan Florentino, talked about Patrice joining his salon. (Florentino is a firecracker! He has a trademark straw fedora, and everyone was shocked when he took it off to show Patrice his new haircut. Short and very blonde) He said that having someone to play off of is a great thing. That it helps both of the stylists.
As for who all was there, besides yours truly, Rachel and Angel McCord were spotted taking a tour of the salon. Bravo Casting agent, Frank Garrity was there with his friend Liz, a movie advertiser (great people!) and actress Vivica A Fox made an appearance with a girl friend of hers former model and Ai Spa owner, Rashel Pouri.
I asked Vivica what she has coming up and if Glam God got renewed. Vivica told me Glam God has a new life on the Logo Channel “Where it should have been” to begin with, and that she is making a reappearance on Curb Your Enthusiasm this fall.
Goodie bags were filled with hair products by Difiaba. They smell light and I look forward to seeing what they can do for my hair.
It was such a wonderful evening and I cannot thank TMG International enough to letting me come.
And I can’t wait to go back get my hair done ;-)
