Beauty Gram Diary: Behind the Scenes at the U.S. Open


I admit that I was in bed long before the match between Michael Llodra and Andy Murray came to a close last night (due to a rain-interrupted day, they didn’t set foot on the court until just before 10 p.m.). However, a little drizzle didn’t keep hairstylist Julien Farel and his team from upping many a player’s glam factor at his pop-up salon. Here, he shares some of the highlights from the past few days at the grand slam:

Danish doubles and singles player Frederik Nielsen loses a few inches thanks to hairstylist Jackson Simmonds before Tuesday’s evening match. (We think it was the cut that gave him an edge—he and his partner, Eric Butorac, beat out the opposing team in the first round.)

Farel chats up Jelena Jankovic while she has her nails done. They also talked future hair looks—perhaps we’ll see her wearing the appropriately named “net” style (below) later in the tournament.
