Romi Cortier has owned a salon in LA's upscale neighborhood of Hancock Park for over 17 years. Romi Cortier Design is a boutique hair salon with multiple private rooms and is located at 425 N Larchmont Blvd. Romi has worked with numerous celebrities over the years, specializing primarily in hair color.
Romi is also a 4th generation artist who's work has been published in the book Marilyn in Art. His paintings belong to collectors across the country, from Manhattan to Texas to LA. He was a contributor to the Portraits of the Fallen Memorial Project, and recently published a book of his art, The Art of Romi Cortier, now available on Amazon. Romi's salon also doubles as a gallery for his artwork.
Romi has a dedicated YouTube channel for his art, as well as multiple DIY mural making videos on YouTube boasting nearly a million views. The inspiration for his murals comes from his love of art history. The mural making process actually is a platform to educate its viewers about the important design movements of the 20th century, which he learned about during his interior design studies at UCLA.
Romi maintains a blog dedicated to art, architecture and interior design, chronicling his global travels and the things that inspire him. The objective of the blog is to celebrate what's right and beautiful in the world as a counterpoint to the negativity of most online media. His Design Diary can be found at www.WhereArtInspiresBeauty.com.
Lastly, Romi studied acting with one of LA's finest teachers and onset coaches Ms. Leigh Kilton-Smith. As a 20+ year client and friend of Romi's, he's had access to a very interesting point of view regarding the world of entertainment. His life is truly one degree of separation from some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
