Julien Farels flagship salon overlooks a ritzy section of Park Avenue in New York City, where his team of 30 stylists serve local Uptown residents as well as jetsetter patrons from the adjacent Loews Regency Hotel.

Farels come a long way. In 1992, Julien Farel left Lyon, France for Manhattan with only $2,000 in his pocket and spoke little to no English. To build a reputation as a hair stylist, he spent years apartment-hopping in Brooklyn while handling an average of 37 clients per day.
