Frédéric Fekkai, the celebrity hair stylist and shampoo maker, has listed his duplex co-op at 953 Fifth Avenue for $8.5 million.

Originally from France, Fekkai is known for styling the coifs of celebrities like Hillary Clinton and for his eponymous shampoo and hair product brand. His flagship salon is located at the top of Bergdorf Goodman’s (where it’s been since 1989), and he also has salons in Bendel’s department store, Greenwich, CT, St. Barths and elsewhere around the world.

According to the Wall Street Journal, which first spotted the listing, Fekkai bought the apartment in 2006 from the late billionaire John Kluge for $7.4 million. The interiors were designed by Robert Couturier, who told the Journal that the apartment has “a very European feeling, obviously French.”

In addition to views of Central Park, the apartment has a library with wood panels from Versailles, a butler’s pantry, a bathroom with views of the park and five fireplaces.

The listing is shared between Leonel Piraino of Douglas Elliman and Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s. [WSJ]
