At the age of 15, Isabelle started working at a salon in her hometown of Belfort, France. In 1993, Isabelle was recruited to work in the United States. At Washington salon institutions, she quickly established a reputation as a gifted hair stylist. In 1999 Isabelle had the opportunity to work with Hillary Clinton, then First Lady of the United States. Isabelle has been recognized as transforming the hairstyle of Mrs. Clinton, who is now Secretary of State and remains a client today. Other clients include Senator John Kerry, ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman, and Jordan’s Queen Rania.
