French born Jerome Hillion began his successful career twenty four years ago in France where he studied hair and make up in a prestigious private academy.
Jerome then moved to Jersey in the Channel Islands where he ran his own salon as well as being a freelance hair and make up artist on photo shoots in London and Paris.
After seven years working in the island, Jerome moved to London where he dedicated all his time to train himself up in order to enter the British Avant Garde category for the British Hairdressing awards which he won in 2005.
Subsequently he ran his salon Hair and Jerome which was renamed Moderne london in 2012 in the trendy Spitalfield area in London where he established an international clientele and became a Guest artist at Schwarzkopf and Redken Academies .
Jerome continued with his session career travelling on an ongoing basis in London, Paris, Stockholm, Berlin, Hamburg, Portofino, doing hair and make up for many fashion designers, artists and private clients.
He decided to move to East Kent and after two years searching has found the perfect place to open a new salon.
In June 2013, Jerome met Jane Bishop the wonderful owner of the Walpole Bay Hotel and immediately was under her charm.
He was not only impressed with the breath taking premises but most of all, Jane's great enthusiasm and passion for the hotel. He couldn't resist the temptation of sharing with Jane his ambition to open a high end salon in her creative and magical hotel.
Jane immediately embraced Jerome's vision and made his dream reality.
Jerome is extremely honoured and very enthusiastic about welcoming everyone who is willing to experience outstanding one to one hair and make up in his very stylish, luxurious and unique VIP like salon.
