Laurent on Current Trends
“Men are wearing their hair longer and women are going shorter,” said Laurent. Qualifying this comment, he explained that it’s usually young men who are opting for longer locks, perhaps over the tops of their shoulders. Older men and men working in conservative businesses are keeping their short hairstyles.
But with women, it’s both the young (under 35) and the older (over 50) women who are now choosing extremely short-cropped hair. “They like short hair because it’s practical. Short hair is so easy to take care of but it can still be quite sophisticated. At the same time, women also want to maintain a feminine look.
“Also, fewer women are coloring their hair these days,” he added.
Laurent then commented on the new trend in salons. The trend of inexpensive salons crowded with customers is dwindling, he explained. “Semi-private shops are becoming more popular and more numerous. With just four or five clients here at a time, we can maintain an intimate atmosphere,” he said.
The semi-private salon is perfect for the client who wants to receive grooming in a calm, comfortable setting with just a few people present. This permits agreeable conversations and networking during the visit if that is desired.
La Boîte a Coupe can also accommodate the client who prefers privacy during their salon services. “Some people don’t wish to be exposed to view while receiving manicures, pedicures, coloring or cuts and we want to make their experience perfect,” he said. Private rooms at La Boîte a Coupe are available on request when scheduling an appointment.
