Loews Regency Hotel Announces Premier Hair Stylist Julien Farel as Partner for Salon and Spa

Landmark Hotel Redefines Luxury Salon and Spa Experience

New York, NY (March 26, 2013) – Jonathan Tisch, Chairman of Loews Hotels & Resorts, today announced a partnership with renowned hairstylist Julien Farel to incorporate a state-of-the-art flagship salon at the renovated Loews Regency Hotel in New York City. Set to open fall 2013, the relocated Julien Farel Salon will be a unique open concept designed by Meyer Davis, which will include hallmark elements such as floor to ceiling windows and a dedicated entrance on 61st Street.

“Julien is a tastemaker who will play an important role in the continued evolution of the Loews Regency Hotel,” said Tisch. “The salon and spa will add an unparalleled level of curated sophistication to the property while enhancing the offerings we will provide our mutual clientele.”

With an impressive roster of clients ranging from beauty editors, CEOs and A-list celebrities, Farel’s salons are synonymous with modern luxury. As a trusted confidant to many, Farel has extended his salon expertise into households with a comprehensive line of anti-aging hair care.

“As a client, Mr. Tisch has watched our business grow and develop over time,” says Suelyn Farel, CEO of Julien Farel Group. “We are honored to become part of the iconic Loews Regency family and work with someone who understands and shares our vision for the brand. It is a true seal of approval to have the support of the Tisch family.”

The 10,000-square-foot Julien Farel Salon at the Loews Regency Hotel will offer an expanded treatment menu and will also feature exquisite furnishings from the Maletti Group for ultimate client relaxation.

“I have an eye for all things beauty,” said Julien Farel. “This salon and spa will be a complete wellness experience rooted in hair, nails, makeup and fitness. What we bring most to the Loews Regency is an incredible team of professionals and talent to care for the needs of our clients and hotel guests.”

In the coming months, the hotel will announce additional partners leading up to its reopening in the fall of 2013. This renovation marks the first time the hotel has temporarily closed its doors in its history.
