Beauty Nostalgia: Reminiscing With…Garren
Beauty Nostalgia is a new, weekly column on Beauty Counter in which we ask influencers, tastemakers, and some of our favorite industry experts to wax poetic on the sticks, salves, and sprays that helped shape who they are today.
The Pro: Garren, hairstylist and founder of Garren New York salon
The Product: “As a hairstylist, there are a few products that are must-haves in your kit. One of them for me is L’Oréal’s Elnett Satin hairs pray. It’s been around for decades, but it’s a product that always delivers a finished look. I first started using it in the early seventies while shooting for Vogue in Paris with Polly Mellen. I remember doing an Yves Saint Laurent couture shoot with models Anne Bezamat, Leslie Winer, and Kelly Emberg. The hair was interwoven with feathers and was unique and grand. This is when I discovered Elnett’s versatility on all hair types. Unlike other hair sprays, it provides hold without excess, so you can spray the hair over and over again, manipulating it into different styles. Elnett is just one of those timeless products that brings back memories of Alexandre de Paris and the grand artistry of hairstyling.”
