He trained and updated numerous team members and educators throughout three continents and taught advanced cutting techniques at the Rusk Academy.
Tired of life on the road Hervé left Rusk to focus on his own salon in the Austin neighborhood of Westlake Hills which he ran for 4 years.

Hervé then opened the salon in the world renowned Lake Austin Spa.
Ready once again for his own place, he opened Atelier Hervé. His mission at Atelier was to create a harmonious setting that makes the client the sole focus. This he achieved.
