Profile

Each Jean-Claude Biguine salon is like an homage to moderne. Sleek, stark, even antiseptic, satellite members of this French franchise conform to the house colors: The staff wears strictly black; floors, walls, and ceilings are pristine white; and the furniture is stainless steel. In 1982, when Brittany-native Biguine opened his first salon, the idea was to deliver an upscale experience without the price tag. Today, that eighties sensibility of high fashion for the masses still holds true. At three Manhattan locations, moderately priced haircuts, color, and blowouts—styled with beauty products from the company’s own line—translate into tousled but structured looks. Two local branches (45th and Vanderbilt Sts., and 68th St. and Lexington) are also full service spas that provide facials, manicures, pedicures, and massages in addition to hairstyling options. With affiliates in sixteen countries, among them Poland, Korea, and Russia, the ever-expanding empire extends its reach into merchandise like blow dryers, watches, and sunglasses. The brand also boasts its own in-house infomercial television channel and an eponymously titled on-site bi-annual magazine.
