Experience the Beauty of French Hairdressing.

At L'Artiste Coiffeur our stylists have an artistic eye for recognising what haircut and colour will enhance and complement your facial characteristics, skin tone and eye colour. We will tailor everything to create a unique look just for you. Our goal is to ensure everyone notices the beautiful person and not just your beautiful hair. This is the essence of French hairdressing.

As the famous French colourist, Christophe Robin said:

"What I like is when I see a beautiful woman, not the beautiful hair colour. I like it to be flattering for the skin tone, for the eye tone. I truly like when you don’t see the colour, but when you see a beautiful woman.

Why are we one of Brisbane's best hairdressers?

Our Artistic Director, Kaitlyn spent 23 years living and working in France where she trained in the art of cutting, colouring and styling hair at the prestigious Academie de Toulouse.  She has also trained at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London completing their International Masters Course making her a highly educated and extremely talented haircutter and colourist.  Kaitlyn's talent and creativity have also been recognised by R+Color who have recruited her as a hair artist and educator to help develop and inspire the next generation of hair stylists.

What is it that makes  Kaitlyn one of Brisbane's best haircutters?

Vidal Sassoon cutting techniques are widely recognised as the "Harvard" of precision design. Kaitlyn combines these techniques along with French haircutting techniques to design a cut and style which is compatible with your lifestyle, how you like to wear your hair, and how you like it to sit. French haircutting embraces your hair's natural movement and enhances your most beautiful features. Kaitlyn also has extensive experience and expertise in cutting curly hair which requires a lot of skill and education.

As Kaitlyn is a precision cutter she only uses Japanese hand-crafted Mizutani scissors designed to cut hair in a circular shape without becoming mashed. Poorer quality scissors often cut hair in an oval shape mashing it in the process.
