Philippe Depeyrot began his career in 1985 at Jean-Louis Desforges International Academy in Paris, France where he became the youngest instructor and hairdresser in the company at the age of 20. Philippe’s career has grown over the last 35 years to include working with numerous celebrities from around the world — from clothing designers and actresses to political figures and celebrity hairdressers. He has participated in New York Fashion Week and Bridal Fashion Week, as well as editorial work in magazines.

Television shows he's had the pleasure of being involved with include Fashion Emergency! and the Larry King Show. Additionally, Philippe has worked with designers Marchesa, Thakoon, Monique Lhullier, Zac Posen, Altuzarra and Jason Wu, to name a few.

In 2014 Philippe joined the Kerastase Tech Team to become one of their platform artists and national educators, allowing him to travel the country sharing his expertise.
Even with all the glamour of these opportunities, Philippe has come to realize his true passion since opening Salon Bisoux, which he describes as having "provided me with endless boundaries to my creativity. Every day I meet great people who change my life. It was behind the chair that I met my wife, Krista. I get to to touch people's lives. I believe it is my responsibility as a leader to shape the next generation of hairdressers — to meet and mentor excited, aspiring individuals who will become the leaders of tomorrow in my industry".
When you ask Philippe what is the first thing he notices about a client, his answer is simple, "Everything! I scan from head to toe — hair, makeup, jewelry, shoes. Doing so gives me an idea right away of style and presence".

Krista Depeyrot / Master Colorist
Krista is a native of the Washington DC area. She first became interested in working in hair while modeling for hair magazines and photo shoots as a teen. She had the privilege of working with celebrated hairdressers and enjoyed being involved in the industry at a young age.
After attending college in the study of sciences, Krista decided to focus on a career in the hair industry. She started her career in Georgetown at Bruno Dessange, quickly becoming one of the top colorists there at the age of 22. Shortly thereafter, she joined the team of celebrity stylist Cristophe at his downtown DC salon and spent 18 years working as their top producing colorist. Krista is excited to have a place of her own with her stylist husband, Philippe.
In hair coloring, Krista found the perfect balance between the creativity of expressing oneself through the art of hair color and her background in science.
