The General Managers of L’Oréal Professionnel, Olga Zanetti and Kérastase, Sandra Kelly joined forces last week as they welcomed hairdressers from all around Australia to experience a small piece of French luxury in the heart of Melbourne for a champagne breakfast.

Set amongst the clouds high above Melbourne’s vibrant city life, the luxurious two storey penthouse at Mon Bijou was the ideal setting for the French themed Champagne breakfast gathering. Guests sipped on French champagne and breakfast style canapes as they enjoyed the panoramic views of Melbourne.

“Today is all about coming together. To share, to talk, to learn and to laugh. It’s very rare to have so many of our wonderful clients in the one city, so it’s important that we take the time and celebrate our dynamic community,” comments Olga Zanetti.

General Manager of Kérastase, Sandra Kelly spoke of the partnership between the two brands. “L’Oréal Professionnel and Kérastase share so many common values. We wanted to celebrate our French heritage in way that perfectly represents the refinement and quality of our brands, including the importance of experience,” said Sandra Kelly.

Guests were guided to the venue by a red carpet lined with delicate white lanterns. They were then greeted by two French models, dressed in white lace and laser cut dresses. Their hair was styled by Danny Puopolo and the team at Rakis on Collins; an iconic Melbourne salon located at the Paris end of the city’s luxury shopping district. The hair looks showcased pure French sophistication; classic, romantic and perfectly refined.
