When art meets style: Rimène Màizi

Meet the young lady from Paris who is making heads turn in Bengaluru with her creative canvasses and chic hairstyles

Having lived her life in four continents and five countries, Rimène Màizi of L’Atelier wears many hats and each with equal style and swagger. A self-taught artist, Rimène who hails from Paris, France found early influence in her father who introduced her to art.

“Earlier, I worked in pencil and pen because they were available easily, but that improved my draftsmanship. I put aside art to focus on education, but it has persistently called me back and finally took a hold on me since I started painting with acrylics,” states Rimène who confesses that her inclination towards art was fuelled after a visit to the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Russia and a subsequent trip to the Kochi Muziris Biennale. Now whenever she has something to say she turns to her brushes.

But that’s not all. Rimène is also an entrepreneur who recently launched her state-of-the-art hair styling studio called L’Atelier. She likes to call her salon a place where art meets style (artworks of many artists adorn the walls of the entire salon space and are a treat to watch), a place where one feels a sheer sense of freedom and likes to give in to the calling of her or his inner diva or dude and emerge even more stylish. Rimène likes to different artists through her salon studio space and create a vibrant artistic community. “I studied hairstyling at Academy Montesantos and Franck Provost in Paris. After which I specialised in barbering at the London School of Barbering. I moved to Bengaluru as it’s a great city for young entrepreneurs. Some of the best hairstylists in our team include Karthik, Raj and Chandrashekhar. We believe it’s all about creativity; the joy on a person’s face when we give them a good style, the satisfaction of making someone happy keeps us motivated to give everyone a hair style that best suits their personality. It’s not about products, but about your confidence, and the joy of being who you are that brings out the glow in your skin, the bounce in your step and the shine in your hair,” adds Rimène Màizi.
