Martial Vivot is the owner of Martial Vivot Salon Pour Hommes on West 54th street in Manhattan. Called “the gentleman’s barber for many of the city’s most powerful” by the New York Times, “the best in the city” by GQ, and a “New York City style guru” by Out magazine, Martial Vivot is a world renowned men’s hair stylist and authority on men’s grooming.
Vivot’s career began at age 15 with a rigorous 4 year apprenticeship in France where he was awarded the title of best apprentice by the French hair academy. He moved to London at age 23 to train at the Toni & Guy Academy, and then returned to France to earn his Master’s Degree. Foreseeing the dramatic evolution in men’s grooming that was on the horizon, in the 90’s Vivot became a pioneer in Europe of what would eventually become known as the “metrosexual” approach to men‘s grooming.
In 1999 Vivot moved to New York and very shortly became the stylist of choice for many of Manhattan’s most influential men, and the go-to authority on men’s grooming for magazines like GQ, Vogue Hommes, New York, Cargo, Gotham, and Departures. He also appeared on television shows like Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Good Morning America, and received two New York Magazine Best Of Beauty nods for his straight-razor shave.
Observing the rise of the men’s salon that focused on masculine trappings but had no stylists of note, in July 2008 Vivot launched Salon Pour Hommes, the first men’s salon in New York City to offer the privacy and masculine environs men desire while also offering the same caliber of service the world’s most illustrious women enjoy at the city’s legendary unisex salons. Vivot has since appeared in Morgan Spurlock’s Mansome, the New York Times, GQ, Vanity Fair, Esquire, Details, New York, BlackBook, Robb Report, Manhattan, The Daily News, Gotham, Town & Country, The New York Observer, Time Out New York, and Out.
Known in the industry as simply Losi, she is a founding stylist at Salon Pour Hommes; one of the greats in men’s grooming; a peerless force in the world of celebrity and editorial men’s styling; and one of the stylists with the greatest influence on how men wear their hair today. In other words, when it comes to what’s now in men’s hair, the comb stops with Losi.
Losi arrived in New York in the mid ‘80s and collaborated with Oribe while also managing his salons, including his flagship at Elizabeth Arden on Fifth Avenue. Within a few years she became a name on her own as the it stylist for a roster of celebrities, super models, sports figures, leading men, and media moguls that is unrivaled, and today includes powerplayers of all ages such as Kevin Spacey; Liam Neeson; Kevin Connelly; Patrick Wilson; John McEnroe; Matt Dillon; Edgar Bronfman Jr.; Ted Forstmann; Eric Bana; Zachary Quinto; Tom Hanks; Steve Buscemi; Hugh Jackman; Gabriel Aubry; and many others.
Losi is also the most sought after and prolific editorial men’s stylist for gold standard publications such as GQ; Esquire; Vogue; W; Vanity Fair; Interview; Vogue Hommes; T Style; New York; Departures; Details; BlackBook; and Best Life. She is, in addition, the stylist of choice for the editors – such as W Magazine’s Stefano Tonchi and GQ’s Jim Moore – and photographers – such as Richard Phibbs and Stewart Shining – behind the cameras.
Losi’s influence and power in the world of fashion is unquestioned. She has styled for dozens of major ads for fashion houses such as Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole, Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. Losi also helped design the looks for the male super models of the 90s, including Mark Vanderloo, Jason Lewis, and Alex Lundqvist, as well as famously styling the hair of the models at Tom Ford’s first Gucci fashion show in Florence, Italy in 1995.
Known as the genius who can create the look that goes around the world using nothing but her fingertips, the legendary Losi needs no comparison.
Losi’s latest ads for Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Kenneth Cole will launch this fall.
