Sequence Paris International Hair Salon | SFP Favourites

Sequence Paris International Hair Salon opened it’s doors to the public in late 2017 by Emma Horsley, an English speaking hairdresser and colour specialist. After going to see Emma for a much needed hair cut and colour, we are excited to share with you one of our new favourite salons in Paris. We pride ourselves on sharing our favourite services, places, and tips with you, and after our experience with Emma we are eager to share this gem with you!

First up, a little background on Emma herself…
Emma was trained as a hairdresser fifteen years ago at the famously acclaimed Headmasters Academy and L’Oreal Academy in London. As the story goes for most expats, Emma fell in love, followed her heart to the City of Light and pursued her hairdressing skills in Paris.

Emma has now been in Paris for nearly eight years, of which seven of them were spent managing an English speaking hair salon outside of the city. After the salon closed, Emma took her valuable learnt experience and knowledge with her and decided to go it alone and open her own place in Paris. Sequence Paris International Hair Salon officially opened on 3rd November 2017. After spending one month renovating the salon from an old office space with no hot water or toilet (!), Emma has completely transformed the space into the modern, stylish, and comfortable hair salon it is today.  Emma welcomes expats and local Parisians alike, men, women, children, and brides, and already has full bookings from her large clientele who followed her to her new home.

My experience at Sequence Paris…
Walking into Sequence Paris Hair Salon felt like walking into my local salon from back home. Being greeted by Emma with a smiling face, that familiar British accent, and English gossip magazines at the ready, I immediately felt at home. Being an expat myself, I understand the difficulties in finding a reliable hairdresser who you feel comfortable handing your precious hair over to. Although you may speak French fluently and be fully immersed in the Parisian life, nothing beats finding your go to beauty therapist, manicurist, or hairdresser, in this case, who speaks the same language as you do!

I walked in wanting a simple cut for a fresher look and to get rid of my blond ends for a more winter-appropriate chocolate brown colour. I was worried that the bleach blond that I had put in my hair a year back would make it difficult to get an even colour throughout. Emma knew exactly what to do, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the end result! (See photo below). From my experience of hairdressers, they always end up taking off much more than you ask them to, but this was not the case with Emma. She was up front and honest about how much needed to come off in order to have a healthy look, and I too expressed my desire to keep it long, and thankfully, Emma was true to her word! Throughout the cut Emma gave me lots of advice and tips on general hair care, products to use, and even styles to do myself. At the end of the appointment my hair looked even better than expected, and had a nice healthy gloss and shine to it, which had been missing for so long!

Emma’s years of experience and expertise clearly show in her work. Her friendly and welcoming manner, paired with her skills, made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience and one that we highly recommend! If you fancy getting a cut, colour, or even a styling for a special occasion, then Emma is your go-to-girl for a professional look.
