Peter Eriks / Stylist
Peter Eriks came to Salon Bisoux from two worlds -- film and hair. To borrow from a quote in the movie, "The Devil Wears Prada", Peter functions from the point of view that hair creations can be, "greater than art because you live your life in it".
After completing cosmetology school in Lynchburg, VA and getting his license, Peter attended the Zaki Gordon Film Institute there. Film school ignited his passion for unique and modern looks -- for the classic and the sleek.
In order to enhance his skills in both men's and women's hair styling, Peter has received training from L'Oreal and Kerastase -- always striving to give back to his clientele by expanding his knowledge.
Whether walking the runway, on stage or behind the chair, Peter takes his unique blend of life's experiences and enjoys sharing them with those he encounters -- as well as some of the age old secrets he's learned along the way.
Peter resides in Washington, DC and has found his home at Salon Bisoux, where he excitedly anticipates what lies ahead!
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. She is a celebrated colorist in the area and has been featured as one of “Six DC Style-Setters” by DC Modern Luxury, “Best Colorist” in Allure magazine, “A Who’s Who of Colorist’s” in Town and Country, as well as a Top Colorist in Washingtonian many times over. She has had the opportunity to be featured on “Fashion Emergency” on E! with Philippe, the BBC, Discovery Health, and MTV. She is blessed with the best clients a colorist could ask for-Washington movers and shakers, and everybody in between.

April Campbell / Colorist
April had a sense from the beginning that she belonged at Bisoux — all her life she realized she was creative, but had not yet found her outlet.

Shortly thereafter, she signed up for the apprenticeship program and has earned her stripes under the tutelage of Krista and Greta, both Master Colorists. She assisted at Bisoux for four years before earning her license. April has further enriched her knowledge as a colorist by attending both Balayage and color mastery classes in SoHo at the L’Oreal Professional Academy.
