Arq Style House

Located on Bagatalle road, you feel like you’re within the pages of a very expensive magazine! The interior is gracefully designed to be minimalistic  and pleasing, and the hairstylists and makeup artists here are all qualified to give you the look of your dreams (with a hefty price tag of course!). Arq is also very homely, filled with smiles, and you are greeted with a cup of tea or coffee until it is your turn to be glammed.

The first meeting with a well-known hairdresser or fashion stylist is really a consultation. Each service and request is based on the customer’s personality. The stylist must therefore establish a special link with the customer to understand their expectations, and to guide them without imposing anything. 

It’s the kind of place where clients become friends, who in return invite their friends and we all have a great laugh and chat in the spaces created.
