More about Maison D'Alexandre:
Owner Alexandre Chouery culled from over 20 years of experience traveling the world working for prestigious brands to resource a totally new concept of a salon creating an atmosphere of being in a luxurious home.
Skipping the standard prototype hair salon setup and mechanism, he crafted a seamless experience for guests from arrival to checkout. Alexandre took the risk to neutralize the front desk reception, rather welcoming guests into a personalized environment feeling more like a library complete with fireplace and bookshelves mixing retail products with books and objets d'art. A communal dining table replaces the individual styling stations adding to the homey atmosphere of "Chez Toi" A full cocktail cart is part of the personalized touch offered to each guest.
The second floor of the project will be completed in November 2018 and will focus on Alexandre's investment in Hair Therapy, creating bespoke hair and scalp treatments curated for each client. Using the Rene Furterer Capilliscope to analyze the scalp, our Hair Therapists will create a treatment plan for the specific hair and scalp needs of the individual. The mission behind this investment is to elevate the level from a typical hair salon to a destination for scalp therapy and treatment of damaged hair.
Maison D'Alexandre staff members are professionals who have worked with Alexandre demonstrating their passion for learning the highest standards of the hair and beauty industry.
