About Modshair

Paris-based Mod’s Hair has extended its unparalleled global reputation to New Zealand. Credited in magazines around the world, Mod’s hairstyles are created in the studio in sessions with photographers, stylists, designers and fashion editors.

Mod’s hair continuously offers new styles which are introduced to the world via fashion runway shows and magazines. These styles are then further developed by the Mod’s Hair creative team into special salon styles that are easy to care for, natural and feminine.

A team of stylists from Mod’s salon in New Zealand travel to Paris for creative sessions at the Mod’s training headquarters. Constant updating of technical skills ensure Mod’s clients in New Zealand experience the same high level of expertise that European clients have enjoyed since 1968.

In Paris, Frederic and Guillaume established their first hair stylist agency specialising in studio work. Without a beauty salon, they attracted a rush of attention from magazines, advertisers and fashion photographers. The
new venture was named Mod’s Hair which means hair for fashion. The group worked for many fashion magazines such as Elle, Marie-Claire and Vogue.

Mod’s Staff are trained and equipped with the skills and knowledge they need, through our Paris History, were Mod’s began. We have our training school located in Paris where our stylists twice yearly attend to fine turn their skills.

Being apart of a salon where we have new season collections, bring ideas and knowledge to our stylists helping grow our salon by continuously training our team. The Mod’s way is based around working with the hair to create softness and movement, along with our client’s lifestyle, in order to create their look after they leave the salon.

Mod’s keep it real for each client, making sure that they can reach their hair needs, from our personalised service from the colour table to the stylist’s service. We know it’s important to be realistic with your look, knowing exactly what you need.

Each stylist recognises their personal strengths, and passions and would like their clients to utilise their information which in particular, can guide our new clients to find their perfect fit.

Mod’s Hair – hair for fashion and you

The French are synonymous with having natural style – carefree, sexy and feminine. Mod’s typically embodies all of these with its heritage dating back to the birth of prêt-à-porter (ready to wear). In 1974, the change of focus from haute couture inspired the creation of Mod’s (“styled un-styled”, “coiffed-de-coiffed”)

The Technique
Our Mod’s contemporary cutting method incorporates easy-to-care styles that are both natural and feminine. The Mod’s technique works with the natural movement of the hair and our colouring technique balayage embraces the natural shades and method of colour.

Achievable, believable hair
Mod’s are still at the heart of creating. Having endured 40 years of fashion, runway and editorial work allows us to anticipate and bring you the latest in hair trends, fashion forecasting and techniques.
