Philippe Schaedler has been a prominent face in the hair and beauty industry for over three decades. Originally from Austria and a Citizen of Fürstentum, Liechtenstein, Philippe now resides and works primarily in Los Angeles, California. He jump started his career in hair at an early age of 14, beginning his studies in Europe and continues to stay current with his education today. Philippe's passion for styling trends and color techniques has taken him all over the world, including the majority of Europe and the United States. He frequently attends the Toni&Guy Hairdressing Academy in Santa Monica, California.
Living L.A. Vida
Ironically, life in the snow was the catalyst that brought Philippe to sunny California. His aunt and uncle owned a ski resort hotel in Austria, where Philippe lived and worked when he was a young man. He befriended some visiting ski resort residents from Los Angeles. One invitation to spend a summer with them in Los Angeles was all it took for Philippe to dive head first into his love affair with the sunny state. Philippe holds an Austrian Hairdresser license, and since his first visit in 1986 also holds a California Cosmetology license, and is California State Board Certified to train Apprentices. Through the years he has obtained numerous Hairdressing Education Diplomas from Vidal Sassoon (a beloved mentor) and Toni&Guy. Philippe's other mentors include Anthony Mascolo and James Morrison from Toni&Guy.
Hair, There & Everywhere
Every year, Philippe works in Vienna and Amsterdam for various clients, events, films and photos shoots. When he is not standing alongside his clients working on their hair, or spending time with his friends, whom he considers many of them as family, you can find him riding his beloved motorcycle through the streets of LA, Utah and other Western states. Philippe is also an avid skier, photographer, videographer.
