Bastien Le Guen
First: A Passion
My passion for this craft began at the age of 14. A TV broadcast revealed « the Haute Coiffure » , a world I was not aware of.
The complexity and the beauty of the stylist final piece inspired my interest in this art.
I have made my technique strong through diverse training, consistency and love for what I do. In time, my personality became part of my work, unleashing my creativity.
As far as I am concerned, a craft is beautiful if it is accessible and allows you to learn and progress every day.
Although one’s work is never totally completed, I always repeat these two quotes which perfectly reflect my philosophy:
“The detail makes perfection, but perfection is not a detail.”
“The one who stops wanting to be better stops being good.”
Love this place. Bastien cut my hair and was fantastic. The price is absolutely worth it :)
I used to dread the haircut time and now I cant wait to go back :)
Dessange is a top-notch luxury hair salon. For them, being a hairdresser is truly an art; I can especially say this is true for Bastien, who is passionate about what he does. I love the cut and color they did for me; they put a real effort into knowing my personal style and creating a look that matches. The stylists put a high degree of care and attention into their work. Of course, the salon itself is very comfortable. You'll be pampered! :D
I don't go to the hair dresser that often as I like it to grow long. But I like to go once in a while just for the experience. I recently discovered Dessange and wanted to share the experience that was really impressive. There, they take the time to listen to your vision and take the time to "learn" your hair and facial traits. I highly recommend Bastien Le Guen. He is passionate about the "matter" of your hair and is more a sculptor than a hair dresser. In a few hand strokes, he transforms your face even before he cuts anything. It is quite impressive and I never experience that before. He is truly passionate about his art and the result is amazing!
Despite a high price when you do it all, I’d still recommend Bastien Le Guen to cut your hair and address color issues. I was too blonde and now my color is perfect. He had a vision and although I was in shock at first, I liked what he did. It was a big change and I wanted a change 😉 Mission accomplished!
He listens and is understanding. When people ask for recommendations in Austin: Bastien is the answer!!!
Wow, I found the best hairdresser in Austin there. Bastien Le Guen is the professional I've been looking for since I moved out of France. He's of very high quality, perfect skills, wonderful listener and will take care of you like no one. I'm delighted with my hair cut and I'm touched by his devotion to his work. I've had the pleasure to work with him on a creative collaboration for artistic hairdoes for a dance/theatre performance and he is as passionate as talented. I would not recommend anybody else in Austin, if you need the best for your hair, he's the one.
I'm extremely happy with how Bastien takes care of me. Never had bad experience from start to finish. When I first walk in I'm always welcomed like an friend, the care that is taken in my cut makes it a personalized and fit me so well; I walk out feeling ready to take on the world. If I could come every week for just the blow out alone. I do it in a heart beat! Definitely give Bastien chance to blow you away with his skill he has more then 11 years abroad training you can not go wrong with Bastien! Give him a chance he will wow you every time! I will back again to get my hair cut!
I'm so happy I found this hair salon! One of the best salons in Austin.
It can seem a bit expensive but they are so friendly and professional. I have long hair and Bastien understood exactly what I wanted to do with it. It's been 3 months that he gave me a haricut and my hair still looks amazing (with layers still showing :) ) . The color is still stunning too. Those people are not the type of haidressers that do lazy work that looks good for a few weeks but then you have to get a new haircut because they don't think about the long-term.
I highly recommend this salon, and more specifically ASK FOR BASTIEN, he's the best!
Dessange Paris is the best place to get a hair cut and colored,i highly recommend Bastein le Guen.
What a team! Bastien is my stylist and Katie is my colorist. Katie KNOWS color and she does it right everytime, matching the correct shade with my skin tone, evening out color or fading from sun damage, and really having a true eye for applying the right color/lowlights/highlights in the right places.
Bastien is very precise, observant, and a true seasoned professional. My hair is fine and wavy, so having a stylist who can provide a great haircut that embraces my style and busy schedule is important to me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND them both!
Bastien was my hairdresser and he did a splendid job. He's really easy to talk to and made great suggestions.
I'm really pleased with the outcome, I highly recommend the place.
Bastien Le Guen is my hairstylist. He provides high-quality service and gives me good tips.
We can't be disappointed with him because I am very demanding as my Mom used to be a hairstylist too.
Bastien Le Guen was my stylist. Katie was my colorist. Both did an amazing job. Bastien is very observant. He really looks at his client to determine what kind of person you are and what is the best style. He has a very clean technique. I love what he did with my hair! I highly recommend him!
Katie did a great job helping to even out my color and not cost me an arm and leg.
Thank you to both!!
Bastien and Katie are awesome! I showed up with damaged, overprocessed hair and left with healthy, fuller hair. I have no idea how they did it, but my fiance loved my new look!
I moved to Austin 5 months ago, and was desperately looking for a stylist. Someone who will genuinely listen to what I need and get it right.
Well at Dessange Paris i met Bastien! And he nailed it right on the head (no pun intended) I work with luxury customers and who else know better about luxury than them French?
Not only the style but also the advice and the product on my hair made such a difference with the last haircut I got elsewhere. Define service?? At Dessange Paris, SERVICE IS WHAT YOU GET from the moment you enter this shop to the moment you leave, you are treated like royalty!!!
On my drive back I did not have the feeling I went and got a haircut, no itchy feeling, no cut hairs on my neck, forehead and ears... water is brought, coffee is poured, shampoo and massage is done. Just epic!
And finally someone who knows about men's hair... call me picky but my mom was a hair stylist for 43 years so yes I am picky and with the brand I represent I need to be sharp, dapper and on point. Well the hairstyle is taken care of!
