Major hair skills, A Real Housewives of New York guest star and an awesome personality are just a few of the qualities A-list hair stylist and salon owner, Francky L’Official is known for. MyFDB recently “Took 5″ with L’Official to discover more about his current projects and fashion influences.
Do you have any exciting projects or shoots in the works?
My biggest project is the launching of my product line on HSN America, Germany and UK called “Hairshow by Francky L’Official.”
What goes through your mind when creating a hairstyle for print verse hairstyle for TV?
A lot goes through my mind when I create for print…it depend of the clothes, the story, the makeup and the model. I always talk with the photographer about his vision and try to mix his vision with mine- it’s all about creativity and pushing limits. For TV it’s a bit more simple; I work with celebrity or host and need [hair] to reflect their personality. [To] get shine, volume and bounce is the principal and to make your client happy!
With your appearances on the Real Housewives of New York, how has being on a reality TV show impacted your career ?
Honestly nothing changed, beside having fans of the show calling the salon all the time, everything stayed normal and it’s what I wanted.
Who are some of your favorite fashion designers?
Lanvin, Tom Ford, Thom Browne, Cavalli, Dior, Chanel, Simon Spurr, Michael Bastian, Badgley Mischka and few more. I like them all and all are different and genius in their own way.
Lastly, what advice do you have for aspiring fashion industry hopefuls?
My advice would be to be creative, different, nice and strong!
That’s a wrap! A huge thank you to Francky L’Official for taking the time to talk to MyFDB and for more information about his work and products visit his official website.
