I went to Paris at 17. From the countryside right to Paris: freedom, parties! I worked for Jean Louis David, a big chain of salons, 600 salons. At the time, Jean Louis David had the best studio team, and one of the good hair stylists called me from the set of a L’Oréal commercial with Stephanie Seymour. He said, ‘I can’t make her hair shine. It’s all grey and dull.’ And he asked, ‘Can you come in and do color?’ I arrived, I had no idea who Stephanie Seymour was, no idea who he was, and I did it, and she liked it. She was a low brown, and I just did a gold shade, with no peroxide. She loved it, and after she wanted some highlights. When she comes to Paris, I do her hair, with pleasure. And I became the hair colorist of the top models at the time. They’ve done so many color changes, you know. They have to change hair color four times a year to be top models. Kristen McMenamy (4), I did her hair for 15 years during the top model time. She was the one who was always ahead. Linda always copied her!
I'm presuming he's refrencing Linda Evangelista of course.
