Academy Award-winning Hollywood hairstylist Paul LeBlanc publishes his second book, titled "Moving On." Here, LeBlanc once again shares about his experiences and all the films he worked on since the day he won an Oscar. This book, which continues to speak about movie stars, the film industry, and the part the author played in, is LeBlanc’s closure to his debut book, titled "You can get There from Here."

According to, he once shampooed Jackie Kennedy, he gave the Black Stallion a perm, and he replaced Princess Leia’s side buns with loose waves for the Return of the Jedi. He is the legendary hairstylist behind the Black Swan’s balletic updos and Javier Bardem’s creepy bowl cut in "No Country for Old Men", and the Academy Award winner work on Amadeus. Now, he reveals how he beautified his career in the second book that tells it all.

The portrait of LeBlanc’s path toward success is not picture-perfect at all; it is filled with blemishes that make it all the more uniquely human and remarkably inspiring. He reflects upon his life and career, saying:

"I’ve been home for eight years. (What a mistake I made. You have no idea.) I have had a stroke sometime ago. But thanks to Louise, my wife (I got married in 2007), I am coming back to myself, writing this book about my experience, and getting better all the time.

"I have no inhibitions about writing what has happened. I met a man here, and it was a disaster. His family won’t talk to him; his son had a son and refused to let the grandson see him. His ex-wife won’t talk to him at all. He took great pleasure in doing things to people. However, I digress. I am going to tell you about all the films that I worked on since that fateful day, when I won an Oscar."

In "Moving On," LeBlanc empowers readers to pursue and achieve whatever dream they have, regardless of what other people say. He believes they can attain it like he did, if they truly put their hearts into it. His encouraging book completes the Award-winning cosmetologist and hairstylist’s back-to-back autobiographical work that will benefit many generations to come.
