PARIS — To mark its 10th anniversary at the Cheval Blanc hotel in Courchevel, the Hair Room Service by John Nollet has been given new decor and the addition of an accessories boutique.
Due to be opened on Dec. 12, the 444-square-foot space — whose design created by the office of interior architects John and Patrick Ribes is meant to call to mind a travel trunk, with wooden and leather details — will also include Nollet’s first flagship hair-accessory boutique.
The hairstylist said he has been training his team “the secrets of my philosophy and hair experience. I wanted my guests to relish the unique pleasure, transforming the ritual of a haircut into something extraordinary — exploring the quality of the haircuts, the hairstyles and the exclusive services we propose.”
Such offerings include the “Lady Stanhope,” which involves a shampoo, scalp massage, treatment, haircut and hairstyle, which goes for 200 euros, or $212 at current exchange, and the “Jeanne Baret” that includes as well color and highlights, and is priced at 490 euros, or $521.
“Guests recline on our iconic Méridienne [sofa] whilst having their hair washed in total comfort,” Nollet continued. “We will also present in avant-première for the guests of Cheval Blanc the collection entitled Harmonie, specially conceived for the winter holidays.”

The feathered crowns, beaded and braided headbands, combs and tiaras — whose prices run upward of 200 euros — were made with French artisanal houses, such as the Maisons Lesage, Lemarié and Hamon.
Beside the Cheval Blanc in France, the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned hotel, Nollet’s hair accessories are sold at his eponymous salon at the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme hotel, Colette, Le Bon Marché department store — where he has had a pop-up shop since late August, L’Avenue mall in Shanghai and Just One Eye boutique in Los Angeles.
Nollet launched hair accessories in tandem with the opening of his salon at the Cheval Blanc in 2006. Then eight years later, he introduced a couture collection with materials, such as feathers, from the specialty houses.
