“Simplicity, Individuality and Class - these qualities form the cornerstone of French beauty that I hope to share with everyone around the world. ”
When we think of France, the first image that comes to our minds is that of chic elegant Parisian women strolling down the sprawling sidewalks of the world-famous Champs-Elysées with Hermès bag in hand and sexy tousled hair that looks effortlessly gorgeous.
If you've ever dreamed about looking as confident and stylish as they are, we've got great news for you!
You no longer have to take a 14-hour flight to get the full-on French beauty experience because internationally renowned French stylist Yann Beyrie has recently established his flagship salon right here in the heart of Orchard!
Created like a Parisian Gallery, his namesake salon Yann Beyrie is in itself a masterclass in design. Intentionally minimalistic, you won't find many machines cluttering the salon but instead plenty of space so that the focus is put squarely on your hair, their artwork.
While some may expect Avant Garde, or even drama from the Haute Couture hair that models stereotypically adorn on the Paris runway, the hairstyles we see in Yann Beyrie are anything but dramatic.
More Understated than Bold, the French ideal of beauty is similar to what many of us here believe in Singapore.
In France, Beauty is "Natural but Better". Trending hairstyles in France focus not on forcefully sculpting your hair to make it straight or curly but to work with existing features to bring out your inner beauty and make you look effortlessly glamorous even in every mundane moment of your life.
Just because it looks effortless doesn't mean that it is so. Many French hair artisans spend a long period of time mastering the art of painting to give customers' hair the natural sunkissed effect through techniques such as balayage.
And it is this training and philosophy that Yann aims to share and inculcate among stylists in Singapore.
Having started his hairdressing journey more than 15 years ago in Paris, Yann had the benefit of learning from the crème de la crème in top salons in Paris and London. We're talking about top European salons such as Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy and even celebrity salon Trevor Sorbie! His voracious appetite for knowledge and skills got him noticed, so much so that he rose to the position of Creative Director within 4 years. Soon after, he was given numerous opportunities to work with celebrities such as Justin Timberlake for Editorials and fashion designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood editorials for the Paris Fashion Week. It is these experiences that honed Yann's sense of aesthetics and skills to make even wearable hairstyles look glamorous.
Yann is not the only one with such illustrious credentials. He counts fellow French stylist Anthony, who worked directly under celebrity stylist George Lucas and in top salon chains such as Rossano Ferretti across Barcelona, Milan, Berlin and more recently in Tokyo, as part of his team. A passionate artisan with a strong grounding in European hairdressing techniques, Anthony is wonderful at creating sensual hairstyles by infusing movement into hair through precision of haircut and contrast in colour.
Hailing all the way from Manhattan, New York City, CK Karkhanis is yet another gem of a colourist who does balayage so brilliantly, we guarantee that you'll fall in love with her in your first visit.
We haven't even got started on the vivacious Jess, a veteran Singaporean stylist you'd remember for her solid skills and larger-than-life personality along with Nich, Zeff and Diva, all local stylists with extensive experience at top salons in Singapore.
It is clear that not everyone in the team is French yet Yann has successfully crafted a French experience for all customers who enter Yann Beyrie. Some parts of it has got to be the characteristically French Crème Simon tea, minimalist decor as well as its Made-in-France hair products. However, it is ultimately the investment in training the team that has possibly paid the most dividends in this aspect.
From the Vidal Sassoon-style hair workshops to etiquette training that even Louis XIV would approve, we see a renewed sheen and a layer of polish among established stylists in Yann Beyrie in service.
Having said that, it is skill where the stylists in Yann Beyrie truly shine. Yann's training require one to think of one's face as the light and hair as the shadow. Stylists here are taught to create the outline that accentuate one's features while taking into consideration head shape and hair condition, resulting in a wash-and-wear haircut that naturally brings out one's individuality.
Cut aside, French Balayage is another service where Yann Beyrie stands out. As foils are not used, the technique disguises unwanted regrowth lines and created a more natural, sophisticated and dimensional look that looks more and more natural over time as the highlights are coutured to complement your features. It is hence no surprise why the French Bob and the French Balayage emerge as our must-try hair services here at Yann Beyrie.
How much do they cost though? While a hair service at Yann Beyrie is certainly not cheap, prices here is also thankfully not out of this world. Insisting on French founder Yann Beyrie will set you back by $185 for the cut but the price drops to $129 for Anthony and further to $79 for local stylists directly trained by Yann. Sunkiss highlights, on the other hand. start from $179.
Given that a flight to France cost much more than that, getting your hair done at Yann Beyrie may just be the excursion you need to scratch that travel bug and get your French fashion fix in time for that special occasion.
Overall, Yann Beyrie is definitely a French hair experience not to be missed in Singapore!

Haircut and highlight with Jess
Thank you Jess for injecting colour and life to my otherwise “style-less” hair! Jess is most welcoming and makes you feel comfortable right away. She takes time to understand your preferences, study your hair flow and texture and then make suggestions to see what you are comfortable or not comfortable with before doing her magic. I have not had short hair for many years now, but Jess’ reassurance and confidence sure worked wonders to help you make that move to try something different! Jess is very meticulous, taking time (cannot emphasise this more, you do not feel rushed at all through the session) to ensure she does the haircut to perfection. When doing the highlights, Jess also takes time to pore through my very thick hair to make sure the highlights turns out very fine (therefore not chunky), according to her high standards. Whether you are looking for a simple hair cut or a change, know that you are in good hands because Jess does not compromise. She is truly professional and only wants to deliver the best to her customers. Look no further. Jess is a gem! :) (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)
Authentic French Balayage
Anthony is truly a Master of Colour! I am very, very picky about colour and techniques. I tend to salon hop as the outcomes don’t usually meet my expectations, but so far, he has never failed to impress me with his knowledge of hair, skill and keen eye for detail. I find it interesting how he begins the consultation by asking how I am feeling on that day, and what image I would like to portray. He then makes his recommendation partly based on his emotions and the vibe clients give him as well. So far he’s been spot on, giving me two authentic French balayages that blended and faded beautifully. Can’t really tell from the pictures, as these were taken right after the colour. But there was a LOT of skill and effort that went into the hair. Merci Beaucop Anthony! I will definitely be back! (Review approved by Beauty Undercover)
Great haircut that's ready to maintain
Nich was my hairstylist and she is truly amazing. With my thick unruly hair, I was always turned down for a shorter haircut but Nich truly studied the nature of my hair and also listened to the kind of haircut I need to provide me with the haircut which is stylish and easily managed. Though the cut was pricer side, a good haircut goes a long way. Thank you, Nich! (Review not yet verified)
Haircut was great but service could be improved
My haircut with Jess went great. She has a really bubbly personality and gave me the exact haircut that I wanted. However, my mood was somewhat ruined before my haircut due to the staff who washed my hair making inappropriate comments about my personal life (i.e. hounding me for the reason why I didn't have a boyfriend). Didn't get his name but he mentioned that he was there for around 3 months.
