Gilles and Estelle Belou have been running this store since 2012. Previously, Gilles had worked with his father, André, who bought the store in 1995 from the customer manager at Remington. The latter had opened it in 1968. For 53 years, we have found all kinds of accessories here! The small shop has not grown, but many showcases are exposed and are places to dress the walls: electric razors of course but also choux pastry, hand razor, and all the various products for a quality shave and maintenance are here. “Beard and facial care products are the ones that have developed the most,” Estelle specifies, “but there is also the zero waste hand razor, said to be safe, which is very trendy among young people because it is ecological without plastic Here we examine the type of hair, the implantation, the skin which allows us to carry out a first approach… “
André, who pushes the glass door with his wife, is in his sixties. He’s coming for a repair. From the simple replacement of grille, shaver head, charger, cutting head, mower shoe to changing the engine or batteries everything is possible.
But what makes the owners proud are the artisanal products. Their choice is therefore based on natural products in the field of mechanical shaving and beard care, on sustainable products in the field of electric shaving and trimmers. This enabled them to obtain the EPV label, Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant.
“Our desire is to offer a wide range of quality items made by well-known brands”, adds Gilles. In fact, we randomly discover an olive tree safety razor, or another handcrafted in France combining Canadian walnut wood and solid brass. There are also many varieties of mirrors and perfume sprays. “Because we have as many women as men in our clientele” adds Estelle before slipping, “whether you are good or bad, do not hesitate to visit us!”
