The Didact Hairsalon by Jean-Paul Schrifine is located in busy central Paris. Hidden within a dark corner of the city, this exclusive beauty parlor is attached to the 16th-century church of Saint-Eustache.

Displaying little signage, the secret spa leads visitors up a narrow stairway to a reception area and then to the airy salon space. Inspired by the history of the adjoined church walls, Jean-Paul Schrifine's decor features posh period pieces from Italian furniture manufacturer Gamma&Bross.

The calm space resembles a gallery, showcasing aged walls and artful architectural details. A modern revival of a classic design aesthetic, the Didact Hairsalon dares to promote a new approach of the traditional salon visit. With a focus on both purposeful design and sustainability, this space is anything but ordinary.
