CONVERSATIONS "My favorite cut is the one that looks the best when you fall out of bed," says Yves Durif. French Connection Yves Durif came to the United States in 1984 to work for the celebrated hairdresser Bruno Pittini, whose unusual way of cutting hair made for a lasting legacy. -MARIANNE DOUGHERTY 32 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | NOVEMBER 2013 W hen Yves Durif moved to New York at the age of 30, he had only ever worked for one company-Jacques Dessange, named for the hairdresser who opened his first eponymous salon in Paris on the Champs-Élysées in 1954. It quickly became a magnet for actresses like Jean Seberg and Brigitte Bardot, as well as designers such as Christian Dior and Coco Chanel, who wanted Dessange to collaborate with them during Fashion Week. Bruno Pittini, a gifted hairdresser known for his fast and efficient cutting technique, was the salon's celebrated art director. While Dessange had no interest in opening salons in the U.S., Pittini did and brought a couple of gifted young hairdressers with him to work at Bruno Dessange. One was Frédéric Fekkai. The other was Yves Durif. "When we got here, everyone had short hair on top and long hair in back," says Durif of his arrival in 1984. "Bruno changed that. He had a rigid way of thinking about haircutting, but without him none of us would have the careers we do today." By "none of us," Durif is referring to the stable of gifted young hairdressers who worked for Pittini
