Revealing women's natural beauty with color

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 color dominate, ever... I want people to say a woman is beautiful and not that she has a beautiful hair color. Every woman must be welcomed in the same way: I analyze their faces and the nature of their hair so I can work with pigments, light and contrasts to find them the most natural-looking color. Over the years, I have tried to develop my product range for colored 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 color. Some of my products can now be used for skin as well as for the hair, for both men and women.


2014 - Launch of the Intense Regenerating Balm with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil

I wanted a multipurpose balm that worked wonders on skin and hair. Its luxurious texture is rich in rare prickly pear seed oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, rice bran oil and almond butter and is 99% concentrated in active ingredients. It is ideal for texturizing and nourishing hair to help recreate Gisele Bündchen's divine look.

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 coloring 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.


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 volumizer market as they don't contain alcohol or volumizing ingredients, and offer long-lasting hold. Perfect for instant volume!

These colors included 5 different shades: baby blond, golden blond, chic red, warm chestnut and ash brown. These were the first products of their kind on the market.

Cleansing Mask with lemon

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

In 1999, I launched my first hair care range for colored 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 color on behalf of L'Oreal. The color 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 color to reinvent themselves. I was responsible for all their color changes. Color 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 colorist because there are many great hairstylists out there already." She also introduced me to the key idea very early on that hair coloring 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.
