|Isn’t her hair sublime?|
What a great idea you have given me: Investment hairstyles. I’m sort of operating on “I know them when I see them,” but I’ll try to explain. . .

- Nothing fussy which equals time and energy every morning. Boring and not at all chic.
- Hair moves naturally, falls into place.
- It shines with good health. This is easily accomplished with the right products including a deep moisturising mask twice a month.
- You do not have to wash it every day (ask any Frenchwoman, she doesn’t).
- It’s essential to find the cut that is you. The one that flatters your face, makes you feel beautiful and makes your life easier.
- As for color, there is probably nothing more personal than that decision. I can’t weigh-in on that one. Only you can determine the time, budget and upkeep frequency you’re willing to devote to that detail. Or, maybe you’ve decided to go au natural, even grey or white. Good for you.

All the above being said, the trick is to find the hairstylist who will listen to you. I’ve actually walked up to women on the street — in Paris, which takes nerve — and asked women where they got their color or cut. After years of being moderately happy with my ballayage, I finally found a woman near us who listens to me and gives me the light colors I love. (I was told by one of France’s most famous colourists when I interviewed him for my book that my hair was too light. I don’t care.)
I have my hair cut in Paris.
