The Academy by Mazella & Partners
This London-based school with international reach was established by one of the biggest global names in hairdressing: Jean-Baptiste Mazella. With its industrial loft/artist studio look and feel, the space is uber urban and cosmopolitan, reflecting the high-end expertise and service you expect from the brand. The raw concrete ceiling with rows of spotlights and matching floor are dramatically set off by black and white furniture. A carefully structured and learning-focused space for the Styling section. Spaces are open yet convivial alongside more private and cosy spaces in the backwash area. Custom-made Cindarella furniture was commissioned for this exclusive space, the first salon bringing a new way to teach hairdressing. One to watch.
Atelier des Talents
A brand-new space for the Atelier des Talents hairdressing school that retrains enthusiastic students looking to jumpstart their careers. A space that is light and bright, open and highly contemporary. Also inspired by all the essential features of a modern salon with a reception, photography space, open learning zones centred around large wooden tables, a series of hairdressing stations, lab space and semi-partitioned backwash units. Harmonious colours bring a soft and timeless studio feel. Plexiglass styling chairs let the light flood through the space while the Mademoiselle backwashes are timeless classics.
Real Campus L'Oréal
The new Real Campus by L’Oréal is a professional hairdressing academy boasting all the amenities of a modern school. This exclusive site where the emphasis is on customer experience offers a new higher education route: a Bachelor’s degree in Hairdressing and Entrepreneurship, providing comprehensive training in the business of hairdressing. This vast Paris location was entirely remodelled to be unapologetically modern, attractive, learning-centred and fun, crossing over open-planned loft studio style with the conventions of new third places.

Central retail islands inspired by global beauty and hanging plants all combine to create a clean, bright and functional environment. Paired with Cindarella’s Palladium backwashes, timeless Emma stylish chairs in plexiglass blend effortlessly into their surroundings.
