Fine cuts and colors–thanks to master hairstylist Philippe Tordjman

By

GRAY Blending L’Oréal Professionnel

For over 20 years, Philippe Tordjman has been the unsung hero of hair color, design and care behind Hollywood’s most notable coifs. The former top stylist of David Starr and Salon Au Top Coiffure in San Francisco then made the long trek from styling Hollywood hair to Filipina locks, gaining the attention of L’Oreal in the process.

The company began sending him to France yearly to learn the latest techniques in hair color and cutting, after which he heads back to Manila to share with local L’Oreal-accredited colorists what he has learned.

To sample Tordjman’s handiwork, one can book an appointment in Le Salon at Sofitel Philippine Plaza. I’d recommend splurging on one of Tordjman’s cut or color. Or do like I did and have both.

COLOR Revive by L’Oréal Professionnel

The marvelous hair makeover includes a consultation and cut with the veteran stylist (P2,500). For my color, Tordjman applied highlights (P4,000-P6,000 depending on length) using L’Oreal’s Majilift and Majiblond. These create natural highlights without bleach.

To add shine to my dull hair, he used L’Oréal Professionnel’s Gloss Treatment, giving hair that boost of brilliant shine, ultra softness and luscious natural colors. The end result—hair color with maximum dimension!
