I was recently treated to an afternoon of beauty at the legendary John Barrett Salon, the largest luxury salon in the US. Their list of clients include a rather impressive collection of major figures—from rock stars to royalty—Martha Stewart, Beyonce, Victoria Beckham, Katie Holmes and Hilary Clinton to name just a few! John Barrett is endorsed as THE go-to salon from Conde Naste and Vogue—incidentally, they styled all of the very best looks for the MET Ball.

The John Barrett flagship salon—and our day of beauty destination—is located on the penthouse floor of Bergdorf Goodman. Everything about John Barrett conveys luxury and promises perfect pampering. From the moment one arrives, one gets the complete celebrity treatment in what can only be described as a totally seamless experience.

As fitting a man of (eh hem) a certain age, my visit included a bit of nose and ear waxing, as well as eyebrow maintainence ( I wouldn’t want to start to look like Oskar Homolka!). We also had the requisite manicure and pedicure. Certainly a high point of our visit was the spectacular coif I received from the maestro John Barrett himself! In his expert hands, I was given a look based on my current muse, Aiden Shaw—here Barrett cut my hair so that it would grow in a similar direction.

Now, after 17 years of leading the industry in the world of beauty, John Barrett is expanding, with new locations opening in New York City on Bond Street, Palm Beach, Washington DC, Dallas and Las Vegas. Their best-in-class suite of beauty products is also having a major expansion and will become available around the world. It’s all terribly exciting and I am thrilled to know that so many will have access to the sort of treatment I had!

Dressed for my afternoon of beauty, I’m sporting a Tom Ford era Gucci biker jacket in white, black and saddle leather, Tom Ford black, grey and white mini check cotton shirt, black linen sateen pants, black and saddle leather loafers, Charvet black and silver striped tie, Ralph Lauren black alligator belt with silver buckle, vintage Rolex, antique moon stone cuff links, and my fragrance is Tom Ford “Oud Fleur” (note: the full range of Tom Ford Beauty is available at John Barrett).

    Darling La Contessa,

    Indeed it is a necessity if not a luxury to treat oneself to a bit of pampering!

    In my never ending pursuit to become a better version of myself good grooming is key!

    Love from NYC,
