SERVICE SPOTLIGHT: Julien Farel Power Hour
The Power Hour at the Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa at the Loews Regency in Manhattan, NY, is an all-in-one service designed to maximize the client’s time by completing multiple services simultaneously.
In tune with New York’s fast-paced business rhythm, the service fits three services in just one hour with appointments starting as early as 7 a.m.
Four Power Hour options:
Option A: Blowdry, manicure, pedicure
Option B: Blowdry, makeup, manicure
Option C: Mini facial, manicure, pedicure
Option D: Customize your own
PROCESS: Depending on the option selected, guests receive a Restore hair treatment at the stylist’s work station while simultaneously receiving a manicure and pedicure. A make-up service is typically followed by the blowdry/manicure combo for Option B.
The salon and spa’s treatment rooms also feature multi-tasking chairs that allow guests to place feet into a foot basin for a pedicure while getting a facial at the same time.
WHO PERFORMS THE SERVICE: Highly trained stylists and experts.
SUPPLIES USED: Each option requires different sets of supplies.
The blowdry utilizes Julien Farel Anti-Aging Haircare Restore, Julien Farel high-powered hairdryers, Julien Farel hairbrush and additional supplies dependent upon hair type.

COST: $155 and up.
TARGET MARKET: The service is targeted toward the business elite and travelers who are tight on time and looking to satisfy their beauty and wellness needs quickly.
