Today Franco shares some tips with us:
Your Favorite hair color/style, look for Spring/Summer:
I’m loving this retro punk, choppy , chunky short layers and the wet textured looks you’re seeing on the catwalks.
Recent Beauty Splurge:
I have a very simple regimen, I love unusual fragrances , so I purchased Molecule 01, magnetic Iso E Super aroma-molecule none for its pheromone like qualities and Pierre Bourdon, Bois D’orange.
Best advice you have received:
Look Learn and Listen
Hair tip that anyone can do at home:
Before you blow-dry a section of hair , spray the lift and repair treatment spray on the section then blow dry, repeat on each section. This way it will guarantee coverage and protect against heat but give you lift as well.
Dream person to work with?
Eugene Souleiman, who I believe is one of the best session stylists in the world.
Hair product you wish was invented:
I’ve been working on it for the past four years, it’s coming soon.
Best Drugstore Buy:
Elnett hairspray, you can’t get the European version unless you smuggle it in your suitcase but the drugstore one will do.
Song you are listening to on repeat:
Bad and Boujee – Migos featuring Lil Uzi Vert, my son Valentino play it at school drop off , to everyone’s annoyance.
Hair trend you wish would go away:
One product you can’t live without:
I love Keranique Micro exfoliating scrub, use it every day, love the way my hair and scalp feels after using it.
Always in your fridge:
Crumpets, I lived in London for a long time and crumpets smothered in butter and honey , with a cup of tea are to die for.
