Rich of 35 years of experience, Hairdresser, and Ambassador for L’Oréal and artistic director of Haute Coiffure Française for 10 years, Laurent Decreton has hair styled the most prestigious top models and has collaborated with the team of Alexandre de Paris to many haute couture fashion shows such as Chanel, Yves Saint-Laurent, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Jean-Louis Scherrer and Hanae Mori.
His dedication though his classical training, his exceptional ranking at contests as hairdressing Champion of France (Champion de France de coiffure), as well as Europe and World cup, have allowed him de become an international reference and a key figure in the area.
Fashion being his favorite area, he has succeeded in establishing himself as a creator hairdresser for the major catwalks. He has traveled the world to internationalize and share his expertise through his numerous hairdressing shows
A unique experience, technique, universe, and a personality, all sustained by a professional team; there are all the assets that have allowed Laurent Decreton to reveal a face and to transcend it.
At the artistic level, he was without a doubt one the rare hairdressers to be able to beautify everything: haircut, styling, updos, man haircut … with a tropism for red hair, which he particularly loved in the past years, and XXL curly hair. He thought the figure as a whole; shooting impeccable photos of hair, with amazing style, makeup, accessories and choosing his models with perfection. Probably something he learned working backstage of fashion shows, mixed with his natural cultural open-mind.
True to Jean-Paul Friedmann, his forever mentor, and partner in friendship and art, he has never stopped to reinvent himself and to strive for excellence at every moment.
A refined aesthete, a literature, and most recently, a dance enthusiast with his partner Antoine, he also enjoyed operas and angelic voices, such as Philippe Jaroussky – who participated in his last press release. He has nourished his art with all the emotions he collected thought his numerous travels around the world.
The magnificent artist, who skimmed the world and the scenes, has left us in April 2020 at 57 years old, leaving his loved ones, friends, and clients shaken. His fragile heart let go; such a dark irony for a man with a big and generous heart.
Laurent had a particular relationship with everyone. Words cannot explain his extreme kindness and his tremendous talent.
He was simple and beautiful; he embodied elegance.
His team, which he supported every day, will continue his artistic adventure, embodying, and perpetuating with passion his values.
Everyone holds in his or her heart stardust from Laurent.
Thanks to him and may he reverberates forever.
