About Yves Durif: Yves Durif’s illustrious career began in Paris at the age of 17 inside of the celebrated Jacques Dessange Salon. Through passion and persistence he won over the hair and hearts of his clients and mentors and quickly became a sought after artist. At 30, he made his move to New York City where he met Bruno Pittini, artistic director at The Bruno Dessange Salon. Yves and Pittini quickly formed a bond and he often credits Bruno for helping him realize exactly what makes a haircut “work”.

In November 1997, Yves Durif opened the doors to his namesake salon nestled in a landmark brownstone in New York’s Upper East Side. In 2008, he moved the salon to its current location at The Carlyle. Over the past 40 years, Yves has garnered the trust and loyalty of a discerning, sophisticated clientele ranging from outré style-setters, to CEOs, socialites, celebrities, artists and elegant Manhattanites.
