Invented in Italy in the 16th century, the concept of the Salon flourished in France throughout the 17th and 18th centuries and were well known as ‘Public Gathering’ houses. Held frequently in the bedroom of a lady reclining on her bed, close friends would sit around the lucky patron on chairs or stools. Rules of etiquette for the salon later followed with much more detailed social practices and codes.
Matisse Hair is inspired by the late artist Henri Matisse’s famed clip arts, along with the luxurious concept of the historical French Salon. First opened 19 years ago in Toronto “Wood” by renowned stylists, after expanding our “Water” salon to sunny Florida we’ve decided to take our art back to the orient Manila Philippines where we created “Earth” while holding on to one theory still: hair is an expression and the clipping of it is an Art.
