“I live in New York and Toronto, but it doesn’t matter where I live, really, because wherever I am when my hair needs to be done, I fly to Atlanta. I have travelled there from Los Angeles in the middle of shooting a TV series, from Seattle in the middle of a tryout of a Broadway musical, from Williamstown while performing a play, from Florida while visiting my dad, from Maine while hiking the trails of Arcadia. Regardless of where I am, if it is time to get my hair cut, I board a plane for Atlanta. That’s where my hairstylist lives and works. Pascal Bensimon is his name. Pascal, of Pascal Bensimon Haute Coiffure.”

“I have an extensive background in the top hair salon industry. I have seen them all. I have never seen anyone more talented than Pascal Bensimon. After I was introduced to his extraordinary ability as a hairdresser, I employed him to educate my staff in the new wave of hair design – “The French Way.” ...The designs and styles that left my salon were only equal to the inspiration he gave my staff. They had truly met a master of their craft and his approach to hairdressing had taken them to a talent level they had always dreamed about.”
