THE PARIS WAY OF BEAUTY by Linda Dannenberg


Email this review


The French do it better, Dannenberg maintains, and so she visited the fashionable salons and instituts de beaut‚ and sniffed out their secrets: Mediterranean sea-mud masks for the face, placenta concentrates for the hair, herb oil massage for the breasts. Her findings will allow like-minded believers to use this as a guide book to go where Jackie goes or follow the suggestions for home care from Carita and friends--about an hour a day plus regular facials, haircuts, etc. No matter that the skin people say no coffee and the diet people recommend it, or that Dannenberg touts cellulite treatments which American doctors are quick to discredit. She includes only the higher priced spreads and the less drastic interventions. Written in the breathy I-was-there style of a magazine, this has some flair along with its French accent.
