Stylists - Privé Salon Orlando
“It is pure joy to turn a woman that struggles daily to look good into a person who leaves this chair feeling totally beautiful”
A native of Biarritz, France, Laurent Dufourg began his remarkable styling career as an apprentice in a trendsetting Parisian salon. He later opened two exclusive European salons where his favorable reputation for artistic, cutting-edge hairstyles attracted a fashionable and prestigious clientele.
Laurent then imported his French influenced techniques and style into the United States where his international following of celebrity clientele continued to grow. His reputation as a master stylist placed his services in high demand, leading him to open two signature Privé salons in Los Angeles and Manhattan.
While Laurent continued to create innovative and trendsetting styles for his movie and television clientele, he was inspired to develop a line of hair care formulas that could perform up to the expectations of the most elite stylists and their clients.
"It is important to understand different hair types and patterns to produce a great look with minimal upkeep. I think constant education is very important. In the world of hair, there are always new techniques and new products coming out. If you aren’t constantly training and improving, you can never be the best."
Born and raised in Los Angeles, "Rica" is no stranger to the world of style. Her client list resembles the guest book from an Orlando A-list event. That list includes celebrities, world famous athletes and musicians who claim "Rica" has changed their hair forever. Hailing from a Toni and Guy education, she later had the fortune to train directly with Privé founder and celebrity stylists, Laurent D. Erica is heavily involved with many local fashion shows and charity events in the Central Florida area. Whether you’re looking for a funky, asymmetrical cut or a finished, runway ready look, she will have you turning heads in one appointment.
