Pierre Michel Salon adored by Manhattan’s elite and known for innovative and luxurious beauty services is announcing a change of guard. Founders of the famed salon, Pierre Ouaknine and Michel Obadia, will be passing on their legacy to stylists Jerome Lordet and Mark Garrison as the new Salon Directors. This will mark a new era for the prestigious salon which has been making “New York Pretty” since 1967. 

Jerome Lordet comes from a background of extensive training by Bruno Pittini of Jacques Dessange in France and has been a committed stylist at Pierre Michel Salon for over 24 years. His French technique of control cutting combined with his “less is more” approach has made him a go-to expert stylist for celebrities such as Sandra Bullock, Jessica Simpson, Christine Quinn, Rebecca Gayheat, Sophia Resing, Jessica Hart, Orfeh, Bianca Jagger and more.

Mark Garrison comes from not only a business background – owning and operating his own salon for over 20 years which has serviced top celebrities and successful clientele – but also a styling background. Having started his styling career at 18 years old, Garrison has had the pleasure of working with influential stylist Frédéric Fekkai. 

The secret to the Pierre Michel Salon’s longevity has always been their ability to reinvent themselves and be on the forefront of beauty trends. Together, Jerome and Mark make a powerful and fitting duo to lead the salon with distinction.

“I still feel very excited and creative about hair for true artistry and creativity never retires” admitsco-founder Michel Obadia who opened the salon with his childhood friend Pierre Ouaknine 55 years ago. 

Pierre Ouaknine expresses the deep familial bond created overtime with the stylist at the salon saying “At Pierre Michel we are all family and it thrills me to pass the legacy Michel and myself have built to one of our much loved family members and exceptional hairstylist, Jerome Lordet.”

Under their leadership Pierre Michel Salon has established itself as an ingenious brand. Always at the forefront of innovative products and services, it was the first salon in the United States to use organic products and use foils for highlights.
