Renowned stylist and founder of the Lionel Renard “I AM” hair care line, Lionel Renard, debuted his Los Angeles salon in 2013. The salon, a 1500-square-foot-space was designed as a virtual oasis catering to the direct needs of his high-end clientele.
The 13-chair full-service salon offers haircuts, hair treatments (organic and intensifying), extensions, up-dos, hair color, braids, make-up, and more. Taking a different approach than most salons they encourage stylists to offer both color and styling services to their clients.
“I wanted to create a retreat where clients would feel un-rushed and fully catered to by stylists who listen to their needs and service them to their utmost expectations,” says Renard. “For years my clients have been asking me to open a salon in Los Angeles that would be both luxurious in décor and calming in atmosphere with stylists that can do it all.”
In hopes of harmonizing patrons energy with the surrounding environment, the space was designed according to the principles of feng shui. Boasting a clean, modern space with high ceilings, sleek wood and plenty of natural light. The Bauhaus-inspired layout was carefully developed to enhance the client experience, with subtle touches to calm the mind and soul. Finally, a Champagne service lets clients completely relax in the hands of the highly-trained artists.
Lionel Renard Salons provide luxurious hair care and exceptional service in Miami, New York and, Los Angeles. Renard, born in Paris, has a family history in the beauty business. Growing up, his parents owned a salon in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
Since moving to the States, Renard has soared to new heights in the hair world. Some of today’s biggest stars have trusted him with their tresses and Renard recently released his own product line to meet all hair needs (free of sulfates, parabens and other harsh chemicals).
