A little bit about Le Phénix

This is not your average beauty salon, it is a haven for people of any gender, culture, race, age or size.

Founded by Chantal Francis in the spring of 2009, Le Phénix Studios started as a boutique studio previously known as ‘The Style Studio’.

Le Phénix Studios has been officially open since April 2019. It has evolved and expanded its services exponentially. This unique studio offers a:

  • Full hair care and styling salon
  • Makeup studio
  • Nail bar

Each division within Le Phénix Studios operates independently from one another. This enables our clients to tailor a bespoke package that meets their own personal needs.

At the core of our lifestyle and image studio, lies a highly professional, qualified and friendly team of passionate artists who are dedicated to providing our clients with the most comfortable and unforgettable experience.
