Get To Know: Hairstylist Serge Normant

It’s not easy to get hairstylist Serge Normant to brag about his epic career; it must be his humble temperament, because the man isn’t short on material. Born in a suburb of Paris, he began his career in a salon as a teenager, worked his way into assisting stylists backstage at Paris’ runway shows, and, at only 22, to New York while working under hair legend Bruno Pittini. Now he’s got a long list of celebrity clients (SJP, Blake Lively, Julia Roberts, Julianne Moore), two books, and an eponymous line of products loved by editors and stylists alike. We asked him about his most challenging moments, what every woman needs to know to have better hair, and what’s in store for his third book.
