There are not many industries out there where you could start as part time help at the age of 13, and then be running the same place nine years later. Richard Phillipart did just that at The Boutique Atelier in Cheshire, and poured the lessons he learned and passions he developed at the beginning of his hair career into a salon business that has flourished and thrived under his creative direction.
That ambition and drive runs through the heart of hairdressing, and enables stylists and colourists alike to pursue a diverse range of paths to success, including running your own business. So here’s to all you salon owners out there, whose innovation and determination to succeed helps keep the British hair industry afloat.
We are hairdressers. We are L’Oréal Pro.
