Experience and Scholarship
Born in Montreal and passionate about architecture, color and form, Jean-Sébastien began his training as a hairdresser at Nicole Bisson, graduating in 2003. He was then recruited by Nicole Bisson to teach cutting and coloring. His profession fulfills him with the panoply of possibilities and creative challenges it offers, and his customers often tend to give him carte-blanche, given their total trust in his talent and intuition.
A go-getter by nature, he is involved in a multitude of special events such as fashion shows, competitions and magazine shoots. He also took several complementary training courses in cutting and coloring, both internationally and in Quebec at the Saco academy, where he was once again hired.
Starting in 2006, he began racking up nominations for competitions such as the ABA, L’Oréal’s Runway, Mirror Awards and Contessa’s, where he won Quebec Stylist of the Year in 2017 and 2018. In the fall of 2012, he became the owner of O Salon and has been creatively rallying the team ever since, teaching everyone how to develop their skills by getting involved in various projects.
His ambitious and dreamy nature encourages him to seize every opportunity to carve out a well-deserved place for himself within the industry and his team. He also worked for Revlon Professionnel as a Global Artist and Technical Development Technician for ten years, which enabled him to take part in many training sessions and special events, both in America and Europe.
Since the summer of 2023, he has been delighted to join the Oligo Family to continue creating and inspiring his peers as an artist.
