ARNAUD: I got interested in the fashion and hairdressing industry when I was 15 years old. I began a course at ESTEC in Bourges, France which gave me excellent training and the determination to continue my chosen profession.
FASHION STUDIO: How do you remember that time?
ARNAUD: During that time I progressed my skills by working in the salons of Sergio Bossi and Frederic Alary in Nevers, France, winning all three stages of the Best Apprentice Hairdresser of France Awards: Best District Apprentice, Best Regional Apprentice, and Best Apprentice of France 2004. In the same year I obtained my professional certificate, CAP, and began my career straight after. My first two years were spent at Franck Provost, Nevers where I gained a wealth of technical training through the Franck Provost Academy in Paris.
FASHION STUDIO: Why did you decide to move to the UK?
ARNAUD: I decided to move to the UK in order to learn new techniques and become fluent in English. In 2005, I become part of the team at the Metropolis Salon in Kingston, London. Director Robert Masciave has been a finalist of the British Avant-Garde Hairdressing Awards and working with him is inspiring.
FASHION STUDIO: How do you find London so far? Is it keeping you busy?
ARNAUD: Over the years, working in London, I have taken part in many shows and magazine photo shoots including an Avant-Garde show at Salon International and have frequented shows at the Torture Garden Nightclub.
FASHION STUDIO: Your latest achievements...
ARNAUD: Most recently I was a finalist at the Alternative Visionary Award 2010 - a competition for the best international creative stylist. I also started working as a hair designer at London Fashion Week.
FASHION STUDIO: Thank you for your time and good luck with all your future projects!
