Yann spent his childhood playing in the characteristic lavender fields in the countryside of the South East of France. He has always been close to nature and fondly remembers his childhood. Yann comes from a long line of artisans. Each of them are equipped with the savoir faire in their craft and instilled in him the values of hard work and creativity.
His grandfather was a shoemaker who used to walk the streets of his town sporting vibrant colored suits. He was clearly not afraid of attention and imparted on Yann a sense for fashion and beauty.
His father was a craftsman. Yann distinctly remembers him sitting at his easel, working on his drawings, measuring and perfecting to absolute precision. Arguably, it was his father who attributed to his skills in precision cutting. Although, Yann has always been inspired by aesthetic and classical concepts of architecture.
However, it was his uncle who helped him discover his passion for hairdressing. His uncle was 'the' coiffeur in his town and Yann would accompany his mother to his uncle's hair salon every Saturday for her weekly blowout. It was then when he started noticing the, "beautiful, dressed up guests with immaculate hairdos." At the age of 5, Yann turned to his mother and said, "I want to become a hairdresser." It was this realization and spirit which drove Yann throughout his career.
At the age of 18, Yann moved to Paris to pursue his artistry and education in hairdressing. Paris was a booming creative hub, it was highly competitive and culturally diverse where people would make a distinct effort with their looks. He joined Toni & Guy as an apprentice, and had to train hard to prove that he could be an asset to the team and had a place in such an inspiring work environment. Despite the hardships,Yann identifies this as the time where he started to define himself as a hairstylist.
In Yann's career, he has worked in top European and internationally renowned salons such as Vidal Sasoon and Trevor Sorbie. Paris, London and New York, the fashion capitals of the world, were his favorite places to work as a hairstylist. He has collaborated with designers and celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood; before choosing to settle down and open his namesake salon in the heart of the prestigious Orchard road.
Yann recognized the need for a new unique concept. Singapore being a multicultural country offered diverse hair textures and complexions to work with. Proud of his French heritage, Yann wants to share the French ideals of beauty.
