Key figure of the coiffure, John Nollet styles some of the international biggest stars in cinema and fashion. His high profile positioned him for prestigious red carpet events worldwide and in the advertising campaigns for famous luxury brands. He also won commissions from well-known photographers drawn by his creativity.
Artisan of the haircut, John is the maestro of the controlled imperfection and offers his classic protocol to create hairstyles for the beauties of the 7th art and to his actresses: Vanessa Paradis, Uma Thurman, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Monica Bellucci…
Since ever he creates hair accessories entirely hand-made with natural hair… an ultimate touch to complete the hairstyle. The seed of the idea for this made-to-measure service came when one of her clients suggested him to do “a hairstyle she could take in her suitcase” for the next time she travelled…and that was the initial spark! Because these accessories were conceived for women who travel, the dream was to transport them in made-to-measure trunks...
In 2006, this passion turns into a proper Collection of couture hair accessories, signed in occasion of the opening of John Nollet’s new hair salon at the Cheval Blanc Hotel in Courchevel. It is immediately a success! Braided headbands, hair crowns, combs, hair-jewels… each piece is unique and conceived by the Maestro himself! These accessories blend into each and every hairstyle, from the simplest to the most sophisticated. Clients loved the idea and the first collection is directly sold-out!
In the years that follow, John continues to realize and invent in his Parisian atelier made-to-measure hair accessories, available on exclusivity at the Cheval Blanc Hotel in Courchevel and at the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome. Uma Thurman, Vanessa Paradis…regularly wear them .
