Frederic Fekkai

If there's a real authentic Lover Boy in New York, it’s Frederic Fekkai. Charming, socially ambitious, Moroccan by descent, brought up in the South of France, Fekkai has been one of the top hair stylists in New York for more than a decade and his reputation is not unlike that of George, the Warren Beatty character in Shampoo.

A couple of years ago Johnson & Johnson multimillionairess Libet Johnson had roped him into her fabulous lair of chauffeur driven Bentleys and private jets. Everyone thought Frederic would settle down for this one. Uh-uh. There was an American actress he met at Cannes who distracted him just long enough for both him and Johnson to get the message. In the meantime, he married in 2005 to Shirin von Wulffen, the public relations director at Yves Saint Laurent.

In the meantime, as the world now knows, Fekkai has his own line of hair products too, and all those girls? Ever hear of the Boulevard of Broken Dreams? That’s where Frederic Fekkai usually drops them off.
