Jean-Louis – Owner, Creative Director
He started his career in the south of France, working in leading salons, doing hair shows and fashion parades.
Paris beckoned, and Jean-Louis moved to the capital to work in some of the city’s most prestigious salons as a cutting specialist. While working in Paris he did hair styling for photo shoots for magazines through the Jean-Louis David franchise.
In the 1990s Jean-Louis joined Euro Disney Entertainment Production Centre, designing amazing wigs for all our favourite characters. As part of his role he was a hair stylist for tv shows, special events and shows such as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and other Disney productions.
Jean-Louis then became a freelance hair and make up artist, working on fashion shows and photographic shoots.
He moved to Australia and opened Oxygène Salon in Glebe in 1999. The salon is now established as one of the inner west’s most creative salons, offering hair, make up and beauty services.
Jean-Louis has worked with some of the best-known names in Australia’s beauty and fashion industry, including working with Napoleon Perdis himself on photographic shoots. He has styled for film and television production.
