An Oasis in Bordeaux!
Have you ever found a place to get your hair cut where you feel right at home? Sort of like the hair stylist coming to you - in your home! Well, we have such a place in Bordeaux - it's called Upper Style by Claude Boscher. This boudoir-style apartment salon, located on Cours George Clemenceau, is truly like experiencing your hair being done in someones stylish and beautiful house.
One Saturday morning a little while ago, I got to experience one of the most relaxing and wonderful hair styling and coloring experiences ever. I'm probably like so many of you - it's really hard to find a stylist and salon that I love. To top it off, as an expat here in Bordeaux- there is always that French/English language barrier. That first time experience - that first appointment - the one where you know that the stylist doesn't really know you, yet or you're not sure how you will really look when you leave. I have to say - after my experience at Upper Style - all my anxieties and stress melted away.
You will feel genuinely spoiled and taken care of there by both Claude and his partner Joel. From when you first walk in and you are greeted by them to the end when you walk out feeling fresh and new! Claude initially meets with you and talks about how you like to wear your hair, how you style it, and what your thoughts are about your look. It's a wonderful approach to allow you to relax and place yourself in the hands of an expert!
An expert he is - Claude has been styling hair since the 1980's. He started out modestly in a small town in Northern France. He eventually moved to Paris and then New York working with the Group Jacques Dessange on Park Avenue. He was an instructor for the Dessange school in New York but has also worked with other salons, including Salon Pierre Michel, one of the best known salons in New York. Additionally, Claude has worked such renowned events as the Cannes Film Festival, the Oscars, the Golden Globes, along with participating in numerous photo shoots for magazines, television shows; major brands such as L'Oreal & Victoria's Secret.
He has chosen to bring his high-end skills to Bordeaux and grace the city with his beautiful salon. It's an added bonus that Claude is bilingual. He has a wonderful way of putting you at ease and pampering you at the same time!! His intention is to individually take care of each client with the greatest service. They do not receive more than in order to concentrate totally on his/her needs.
Claude and his partner Joel, fell in love with the city of Bordeaux and decided to open their intimate and exclusive salon in the heart of our precious jewel! I'd say we were the lucky ones to benefit from their unique approach and expertise! It was so nice meeting them and knowing that they love this city as much as I do!! I often have English-speaking friends or tourists ask me if I know a hair stylist who speaks English - well - here you go! - For anyone in the Bordeaux area, or just visiting, who is looking for an incredible stylist and pampered experience, Claude and Joel welcome you anytime.
