Camille Albane Hair Salon Franchise Continues U.S. Expansion in Dallas

Prestigious European Hair Salon Franchise to Open in Addison, Texas in Early 2015

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 22, 2014) - Camille Albane, the dominant upscale hair salon franchise in the European Union since 1994, is pleased to announce a March 2015 opening of its newest U.S. salon in Addison, Texas, a northern suburb of Dallas.

The salon will be owned and operated by Premila Vishwanath, a connoisseur from Yum! Brands. Premila currently owns and operates four Pizza Hut restaurants in the Dallas/Fort Worth region and has purchased the rights to develop as many as five Camille Albane salon franchises in the area.

"When I was looking to grow, diversify and challenge myself, I knew I wanted an upscale, premium concept I could really be proud of," Vishwanath said. "I discovered Camille Albane and knew this was it. I love everything about this brand -- the elegant and pristine ambiance of the salons, the luxury and hospitality offered to every single guest, the wide range of services, the training for stylists and the incredible support from the franchisor. I'm also thrilled about bringing Camille Albane color services and their renowned Balayage technique to the Dallas/Fort Worth area."

"Camille Albane is a concept I can really grow with," Vishwanath added. "Their emphasis on French beauty and on helping the client express their own personal style and individuality brings something totally unique to American customers. Camille Albane's expansion in the United States is a rare chance to get in on the ground floor with a world-famous brand. I am thrilled to be a part of this incredible opportunity."

With nearly 300 salons in over 11 countries, Camille Albane is known for VIP client care and for creating beauty and fashion styles, rather than just following the latest fads and knock-off trends. The growing franchise is backed by 60-year-old parent company Dessange International, which is spearheading U.S. expansion efforts as Dessange Group North America.

Camille Albane is the world expert when it comes to Balayage, the French technique of hand-painting highlights onto the hair to create a beautiful, natural effect. Although Balayage is practiced in many salons, it was pioneered and perfected in Paris by Dessange Paris in the early 1970s. It now one of the most-requested color services in the world.

"We're excited to add Dallas to the list of great cities where Camille Albane is known as a world-class hair salon franchise that delivers unparalleled French beauty services," said Allyson King, President and CEO of Dessange Group North America. "Camille Albane's unique approach to beauty, our background as a Paris-based company and our years of experience make our business model difficult to copy, creating more value for our franchisees."
