Revealing women's natural beauty with colour

I am fascinated by women's natural beauty and the techniques used to enhance it. Showing off their skin tone, eyes and complexion without letting colour dominate, ever... I want people to say a woman is beautiful and not that she has a beautiful hair colour. Every woman must be welcomed in the same way: I analyse their faces and the nature of their hair so I can work with pigments, light and contrasts to find them the most natural-looking colour. Over the years, I have tried to develop my product range for coloured hair, based on the properties of rare or ancestral natural resources (prickly pear oil, lavender, chamomile and lemon) to offer deep nourishing treatments for hair that also maintain vibrant colour. Some of my products can now be used for skin as well as for the hair, for both men and women.

Sea Salt Scrub

2013 - Votre Beauté Gold Medal for the Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt

I often noticed that women suffered from itching and feelings of discomfort during and after colouring at my salon. Until now, the only effective solution to avoid these troublesome effects was using coarse salt dissolved in water and applied during rinsing. Inspired by this observation and the remedy used, I worked with my formulators to create a specific product designed for sensitive and oily scalps. My cleansing purifying scrub contains sea salt, a natural exfoliant, combined with hydrating active ingredients to help absorb all the polluting particles that suffocate the hair base, while calming irritation. It has become the ideal accompaniment for hair detox treatments! This scrub won the Votre Beauté 2014 Gold Medal.


2012 - Creation of the Intense Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil

During a trip to Morocca, I was seduced by myths surrounding the benefits of an oil that is relatively unknown in the West. Everyone has heard of argan oil and its properties but there is another oil that is rarer and more powerful. Prickly pear seed oil is an incredible oil. which has been known throughout the Middle East since the dawn of time. Its extremely light texture and finish won me over and I asked my formulators to incorporate it into the product. I wanted the packaging to reflect this exceptional oil, so I chose a luxury coral-coloured box. The mask also contains a repairing agent that is 100% natural and SLS-free to reconstruct hair from the inside, soothing away frizz and restoring its radiant shine.

2011 - Launch of the Rose Range

I've always loved my garden in Brittany with its overflowing roses. I wanted to use their repairing, antioxidant and soothing properties in my hair care products. Rose hip, Centifolia rose and Gallic rose. All three are of special value in my eyes thanks to their repairing, antioxidant and soothing properties. I wanted to incorporate these benefits in my product formulas. These are unique products in the volumiser market as they don't contain alcohol or volumising ingredients, and offer long-lasting hold. Perfect for instant volume!

Cleansing Mask with lemon

1999 - Creation of my specialist hair care range for coloured and sensitive hair

In 1999, I launched my first hair care range for coloured and sensitive hair. Some of my products have become iconic today, like my moisturizing hair oil with lavender and my cleansing mask with lemon. At the time, my formulator assured me: "These are the best formulas but you'll never be able to sell them!" Today, they are my bestsellers. They are essential for maintaining healthy hair and just as important as moisturizer is for the skin. These were the first detergent-free formulas for gentle and effective cleansing. Kind to hair, these products offer instant pleasure as well as long-lasting treatment. This was avant-garde hair care at a time when shampoos containing sulfates were boycotted for their corrosive effects on hair.

1990: The Supermodel Era

I had just turned 18 when I arrived in Paris to begin working on producing advertisements for Jean-Louis David. I then had the opportunity to create Stephanie Seymour's colour on behalf of L'Oreal. The colour was subtle and I mainly focused on her hair's radiance, but it ended up having a huge snowball effect! After that came Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer... This was the beginning of the supermodel era, the trendsetters of the time. They used colour to reinvent themselves. I was responsible for all their colour changes. Colour became a beauty accessory.

1985 - My early career in Bar-sur-Aube

I started my apprenticeship when I was 15 in a little salon in Bar-sur-Aube. Back then, the salon manager Dominique told me, "you have to become a good colourist because there are many great hairstylists out there already." She also introduced me to the key idea very early on that hair colouring goes hand in hand with impeccable hair maintenance, in the same way that healthy skin affects the beauty of makeup. I stayed there for 2 years and then went to work at Jean-Louis David in Troyes.
