For Stéphan W, hairstyling is about style before anything else. With him, trends are just fickle and redundant.

With his ultra-personalised approach to hairstyling, precise cuts and sought-after expertise in hair colour, Stéphan W understands all the subtleties that must all come together when creating a new look for his clients. Without ever going overboard or pointless add-ons.

“I have the incredible privilege to count among my clients many VIPs, whom I have had a professional relationship for many years. I think they appreciate the fact that I always meet their expectations, “– Stéphan W

Trained in France, the birthplace of ‘couture’ hairstyling, and with over 20 years of experience as a seasoned professional, Stéphan W is an attentive artist who was Director of Education, North America, for Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas before opening his own hair salon in Montreal, in 2005.

Alongside a successful career dedicated to pampering an affluent clientele, Stéphan W has also made a name for himself in Canadian fashion.

Between 1999 and 2005, he is hired as hair Artistic Director for many fashion shows and designers (including Denis Gagnon, Marie Saint-Pierre, and Philippe Dubuc, amongst others), on top of being a regular hairstyling expert on TV (‘Salut Bonjour’, ‘Fashion Television’), as well as sharing his top hair tips in fashion magazines (‘Clin d’Oeil’, ‘Elle Québec’).

In 2016 he launches Stéphan W Atelier, a new hair salon in Montreal’s Mile End dedicated to achieving the perfect balance between artistic vision and the desire to enhance each of his clients’ looks.
