It is no surprise that Christophe-Nicolas Biot’s Paris apartment is every bit as chic and vibrant as the celebrity clients whose tresses he tends to in his famous French salon in the Paris neighbourhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
Isabelle Huppert, Laetitia Casta, Juliette Binoche, Emmanuelle Seignier, Élodie Bouchez, Bixente Lizarazu and Melody Gardot are just some of the celebrities that trust Christophe-Nicolas with their hair.
Alongside his salons in Paris, St Tropez, Mulhouse and Val d’Isère, his line of hair care products and accessories and his self-colouring concept which pioneers the use of plant-based dyes, Christophe-Nicolas is well known in the industry for his magnificent global shows combining light, music and glamour.
Located in the centre of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the joyful apartment reflects Christophe-Nicolas’ personality which is colourful, stylish and lively.
Christophe-Nicolas decided to move closer to his salon in the 6th arrondissement after almost a decade of living on the right bank. He instantly fell in love with this bright and spacious apartment, with panoramic views over the rooftops of the capital.
The apartment is located on the top floor of a typically Haussmannian building, with 360-degree views over Paris.
A fan of fashion icons, Christophe-Nicolas showcases portraits of Yves Saint-Laurent and Kate Moss, combining them with other contemporary photographs, including some signed by photographers Ludwig Favre and Nicolas Bets.
The choice of textiles and decorative accessories throughout the apartment are bright and graphic with colourful patterns. The shimmering colours and modern lines of the furniture create a harmonious atmosphere which is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Everything is well thought out within the apartment, which is line with how Christophe-Nicolas runs his business – as a forward-thinking hairdresser one step ahead of trends.
