Parisian born Christian Marc has always been drawn to the art and craft of manipulating hair into the textures and shapes of his imagination. By the age of 14 he had begun molding the hair of his friends into the punk, new wave, and mod styles popular on the streets of Paris at the time.
Christian’s youthful ambition shortly led him to study under his mentor, legendary French hairstylist Alexandre de Paris, the man responsible for Liz Taylor’s famous coif in the classic film ‘Cleopatra’ as well as the grand and complex looks of the Parisian Haute Couture. It was Alexandre, says Christian “who taught me the technique of the up-do and really guided me when it came to editorial and creative hair”, a process Christian calls “incredible”.
It wasn’t long until Christian felt the call of the American market, and embarked on what has been an incredibly successful career of his own. Drawing inspiration from classic film, his intense love of music, and the street looks of today, his style is one marked by the touch of exacting technique but a light hand. That, along with his signature charm and warmth, make Christian a star in his own right.
Christian has cultivated a dedicated following of frequent collaborators incuding photographers Hedi Slimane, Coliena Rentmeester, Dewey Nicks, Kayt Jones, and Brian Bowen Smith.
Also a favorite of the Hollywood set, Christian’s ever expanding list of celebrity clients include Olivia Munn, Miley Cyrus, Sky Ferreira, Mindy Kaling, Rosario Dawson, Hayden Panettiere, Christina Ricci, Kristen Stewart, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Maria Menounos, Juliette Binoche, Helen Mirren, Leona Lewis, Chloe Sevigny, and Adam Lambert.
Says Christian, “You can only be as good as your taste.” Fortunately for his devoted clientele, that has never been a problem.
Christian divides time between Los Angeles and New York.
