Haus Of Rtists, the very first full- service Balmain Hair Couture salon in Eastern Canada, offers a stunning luxe experience.
Incredibly passionate about the art of hairdressing, Maggie Semaan is also a social media powerhouse with more than 50,000 followers on Instagram. Previously co-owner of another prestige salon (Nüva Beauty & Spa), she is now flying solo having opened the very first Balmain Hair Couture salon in Quebec. “I fell in love with the brand at first sight! It is the first and only haircare line that is rooted in a Paris fashion house, and this is what makes it a luxury hair couture line!” Semaan says.
Ultra-fashionable and known even in the Middle-East, (she jets there several times a year to create incredible balayages for private clients), Semaan has perfectly distilled what her high-end clients crave, whether they’re based in Canada or around the globe. So it makes perfect sense that her professional space would be designed with all the elements you’d expect in a lavish and luxurious salon.
To dress up the location with amazing style, Semaan herself imagined the interior design of the salon, while the furnishings were all custom made. Extremely minimalist and raw with cement flooring and walls, the space is elevated to top-notch design with an ultra-chic palette of black and gold with touches of exotic woods to warm it up.
Style is Everything
Because this is the second salon she’s owned, Semaan understood well which aspects of the business were key when it came time to plan a striking, eye-catching look for the interior layout. That’s why she chose materials that capture contemporary trends in design, paired with minimalist architecture, concrete, subtle touches of bronze, and matte black and wood detailing. In fact, the whole look of the salon is perfectly in line with what architectural design publications currently showcase as trending.
“I went in the direction I did because I wanted to instantly appeal to my clients, who love being surrounded by beautifully designed objects and who want to stay current on the very latest style and décor trends,” says Semaan. “This upscale clientele loves luxury, and that’s why I wanted to open the very first Balmain Hair Couture in the Montreal region.”
