Meet The Team
STYLIST + EXTENSION SPECIALIST
Born and raised in Paris Elie's first passion was magic. He enjoyed the reaction and "Wow" effect that a trick could have on someone; creating a beautiful hairstyle can create a similar reaction. After realizing magic was not going to pay his bills, Elie became a hairstylist at the age of 20 years old.
He was originally trained in Paris by Jerome Guezou, an ambassador L'Oréal Paris. At the age of 29 years old, Elie relocated to Los Angeles, CA where his adventure began in the U.S. He was trained by Piny Benzaken of Beverly Hills on hair extensions, working with the best of Hollywood. From there, Elie moved to New York City and began working with a Brazilian stylist at his salon. Elie relocated to Greenwich, CT working at Giancarlo de Berardinis and Warren Tricomi Salon. In early 2000, Elie became an entrepreneur opening his own "Elie Hammou Salon" which he had for almost a decade.
Elie's passion and desire to further his learning brought him back to the fast pace of New York City. Connecting With Roy Teeluck has given Elie the opportunity in the City he originally left 20 years ago. Elie has over 25 years experience in the industry. He has learned through his mentors and vast experiences. His specialty is in hair extensions, however he is known for his signature cut and blow dry. (and possibly a magic trick along the way).
