Discover L’Atelier Blanc, a peaceful salon in the heart of Paris.
L'Atelier Blanc is a tiny and completely immaculate white studio from floor to ceiling, decorated with wildflowers and snow-colored porcelain candles.
The owner of this light oasis is Frederic Mennetrier, a master colorist and consultant at L’Oreal Professional who has revealed personality and style of thousands of women, from actresses and models to private ladies.
“MY NAME IS FREDERIC MENNETRIER AND I’M A MAN OF MANY COLOURS AND I’M A MAN FOR WOMEN”
Since his early age, Frederic has been fascinated by colors. His passion always was and is to model, sculpt and color hair in an infinite number of shades and styles.
After ten years of classic salon training, Frederic joined the world of photo shoot hairstyling to give his passion free rein, inspired by his all-time icons, led by Gina Roland and Brigitt Nelson.
He developed his skills and creativity further when he worked with leading photographers, such as Jean-Paul Goude and Cédric Buchet, who quickly placed their faith in him. His creations have been published by many influential magazines such as Vogue.
Over time he has become more and more obsessed with coloration. Thus, he studied chemistry and the science of pigments, to handle colors with an extreme precision.
On fashion and advertising shoots, he provides personalized color consultations, in order to find the right substance, the perfect glint, the best way of capturing the light, in every place, at every time and under any conditions.
And currently, Frederic is working on the new it-girls for L’oreal professional this week, including Josephine de la Baume!
In 2011, Frederic Mennetrier finally decided to "go public" and opened L'Atelier Blanc where he offers his real know how to the public.
