Martha Stewart loves good before and after haircut pictures as much as anyone!
The lifestyle guru, 80, documented the stages of her latest hair transformation in a recent Instagram post.
She started off with a photo of herself with her damp locks pushed into her face as stylist Frederic Fekkai stood behind her with his comb and scissors, presumably waiting to begin the cut.
Next, she shared a photo of her new do: a volume-filled, layered blonde bob with wispy bangs. Fekkai seems to be standing just out of frame, putting the finishing touches on her look with a hair dryer and a round brush.
Finally, Stewart shared a photo of herself doing what we all do after getting a new haircut: checking her back. Fekkai held a mirror behind her head so she could examine her new look from all angles, and she seemed to be gazing approvingly at her new side layers.
In her recent Instagram post, Stewart mentioned in the caption that she’s been getting her hair cut by French-born stylist Fekkai for over 35 years.
“He’s also an old friend, a business colleague (he served on my board of directors) and we recently had the opportunity to revisit the past on a plane trip from Los Angeles,” a- she writes. “He invited me back to his bustling hair salon at @themarkhotelny where we had a great time and I got another fabulous haircut from Frederic! PS I took my mask off just for these pics! !!!!!!!!”
Fekkai also shared photos of Stewart’s recent chop.
“Always a pleasure hanging out with our favorite ‘quarantine cutie’ @marthastewart,” he captioned a photo, adding the hashtag #marthathirsttrap.
Loyal followers of Stewart’s Instagram page may recall that just a few weeks ago she had her hair cut by fellow stylist in New York, John Barrett.
“Yesterday when I came back from a short trip I was in a hurry to get my hair cut! In other words, cut to look natural and styled without any fuss @johnbarrettnyc is ssoooooso good!” she wrote in a January 8 Instagram post. “He’s been cutting my hair for a very long time and his new luxury salon on East 57th Street is so spacious, modern and beautiful – offering color, cuts, lashes and the best manicures and pedicures.”
The fact that Stewart got two haircuts from two hairstylists in the same month sparked discussions on Instagram, with some of her followers wondering where her true loyalties lie with the salons.
“What happened to @johnbarrettnyc? You just said he cut your hair for years,” one person commented on his recent Instagram post, adding a shocked face emoji.
Stewart herself jumped into the comments to clear up any confusion with an offhand iconic response.
“I met John Barrett at Frederic Fekkai,” she wrote. “They are both masters and I love masters!!”
