When Pascal opened VOG Salon on Rittenhouse Square in 1992, his goal was to bring the elegance and sophistication of Parisian coiffure to Philadelphia. He has succeeded. For the last 20 years, Pascal and fellow stylists at 21M have been celebrated both locally and around the world, having received awards such as The Sun Nationwide Award and The Philadelphia City Paper’s Reader Choice Award. In 1995, after being named "Best Hairdresser" in France, he was deemed one of the "Ten Best Hairdressers in the World" by Coiffure Française. Most recently, his VOG Salon was lauded as one of the "Ten Best Salons in Pennsylvania" (2012) by Vision Satellite Networking, which rates salons throughout the nation.
Pascal grew up near Lille, France, and studied first in Lille with Jean Louis David and Jacques Dessange and later at the famous Formule A in Paris. He studied privately with both Vidal Sassoon and Irving Rusk in Glasgow. At the age of 22, he opened his first salon in Arras, France, and began to work with the prestigious Paris-based VOG group. He soon opened two more salons in Brussels, Belgium. Later on, when Pascal moved to the US and opened his VOG Salon in Philadelphia, it became the first VOG Salon established in the states.
In 2014, Pascal opened 21M Salon, where he and his staff explore the boundaries of contemporary hair design - continually creating their own styles and importing styles from VOG’s vast network of over 700 salons in 10 countries. Come experience his favorite line, Rene Furterer, along with a number of other fabulous products used in the salon.
