About French hairstylist Yann Beyrie
Born and raised in the South of France, the salon’s founder and director Yann Beyrie grew up in a family who shared the same love and passion for hair and fashion. His hairstyling journey began in Paris as an assistant. From there, he progressed to become both an educator and director for a renowned French hair salon.
Yann continued to pursue his passion in London, where he worked on fashion shows and magazines. Through those channels, he was able to showcase his abilities in high-end editorial fashion shoots. In 15 years of experience, he’s collaborated with influential hairstylists, designers, photographers and celebrities including Justin Timberlake, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood. He was also part of Vidal Sassoon London, as well as the Trevor Sorbie London team, which is one of the most prestigious brands in the UK.
Three years ago, Yann decided to launch his namesake salon in Wisma Atria. Since its opening, the chic and minimalist salon has won multiple awards for its high standards and creativity. We chat to the charming founder and director, who is now based in Singapore.
What brought you here?
I started working at a very young age and always knew that I wanted to open my own salon. Singapore is an amazing country! I wanted a new challenge and a new culture to experience, so I found myself here. In the midst of the first year of my salon opening in Orchard, I had a beautiful surprise that I was going to be a father of twin daughters. So, besides hair, I have my family as another passion that means a lot to me.
How did you get into the hairstyling industry?
My family, particularly my uncle, inspired me to get started. He was a very talented hairdresser who ran his own salon successfully back in the south of France for decades.
Talk us through a typical day of yours.
In the morning, I make sure to have a healthy breakfast, and then I head to the gym. After that, I’m usually at the salon for the bulk of my day. After wrapping up, I head home for some family time.
What do you enjoy most about running the salon?
Every day is different and you have to keep moving forward – there’s always something to improve on.
Tell us about your team.
I feel very privileged to have my teammates. I’m so proud of them! We are a passionate and dedicated team of local and international stylists. All of them have their own strengths and we complement each other very well.
