It all started with an idea: combining French style with Australian 5-star customer service
Between the Australian founders and Franck Provost himself, things clicked instantaneously. After discussions at the head office in Paris in April 2008 about the possibility of opening salons in Australia, everything went forward amazingly smoothly and the first flagship salon was opened in the heart of Sydney’s CBD in November of the same year! This partnership made total sense.
“Australian women can now experiment with their hair and not have to worry about maintainability at home. Rather than create a dying trend, Franck Provost Paris hairdressers give extended value by creating various styles that compliment the one haircut.”
Since opening the first flagship salon in 2008, Jean-Francois, pictured here with Franck Provost in Sydney, has overseen the expansion of the network through his unique drive and experience in luxury brands.

More than a job, a passion...
The talent and passion of an exceptional creative hairdresser
After an apprenticeship in France, then in New York and London, Fabien Provost joined his father about fifteen years ago. Today, the passing of the baton has taken place naturally and the two designer hairdressers work alongside each other, driven by a common passion. Fabien is the Artistic Director of Franck Provost and he is the hairdresser for many stars on a daily basis as well as at Film Festivals such as Cannes, Cabourg or Angoulême. He also travels to the four corners of the globe. Fabien Provost has therefore made his passion his profession, where he excels through his innovative spirit.
Fabien is constantly on the lookout for new trends. His creativity seems limitless, to the delight of his guests. He offers them haircuts, colours and styles that are both refined and easy to manage. In addition to his work on the collections and the know-how of the Franck Provost brand, Fabien is keen to continue working in the salons in order to maintain contact with his guests. These values contribute to the strong image of the House. This image is also well represented by Fabien Provost’s sister, Olivia, the group’s communications director. This is an inspired and inspiring family for the increasing number of women who choose Franck Provost hair salons.
