A few years ago, famed makeup artist Bobbi Brown sat in Deborah Lippmann's manicure chair at Frédéric Fekkai Salon. Although Brown opted for a basic manicure and chose a simple neutral shade, the session was an experience that neither would soon forget.
Impressed with Lippmann's clean and thorough style, Brown told Allure magazine about her and news of her talent quickly spread throughout the industry. Soon her fancy finger work was gracing the covers of top publications. In addition to her extensive print experience, Lippmann is responsible for dazzling the digits of high-profile personalities.
"I feel the manicure is the most intimate of beauty services," Lippmann explains. "The manicurist and the client are face to face the entire time, holding hands." Because of this up close and personal profession, it's not unusual for Lippmann to form intimate bonds with her clients.
Lippmann enjoys performing vocally. She has recorded a song on Broadway lyricist/director Martin Charnin's album Incurably Romantic; and she was a vocalist/producer/arranger on Martha Stewart's Home for the Holidays Christmas special on CBS. Also, she performed on Donny Osmond's album Christmas at Home; and she has sung the national anthem at Madison Square Garden for New York Knicks games.
But what is this special touch that makes Lippmann so sought after by celebrities? "I start out with a serious hand massage to help my clients relax," she says. "I prefer to take my time to give a slow, luxurious manicure." Lippmann's basic manicures generally take half an hour and last for about a week. "The most important thing," Lippmann adds, "is that I want my clients to feel great about themselves after I've finished."
Through her many years experience in the manicure business, Lippmann is convinced that maintenance is the key to fabulous-looking nails and hands. Shares Lippmann, "The hands are the most used part of the body and yet the least cared for." When you're in Lippmann's hands, you get treated like a star!
The Lippmann Collection is made up of over 40 shades, nail treatments, and tools developed by Lippmann. Lippmann's many years of experience and expertise are always in demand by top fashion magazines, photographers, models, and celebrities. This has given her a unique insight into the desires and demands of today's women.
