Bruno Compin

Interesting doesn’t begin to describe the journey taken by Zindagi co-owner Bruno Compin. Bruno’s dedication to developing technique and skill started many years ago in France, but not in the way you may think. A native of Orleans, France, Bruno began cultivating his meticulous attention to detail, sense of style and taste in culinary school at the age of 14. Those in the Arts or the creative world know that passion and detail cross paths in both culinary and hair styling alike. Here lies the first sign of Bruno’s passion for such commitment. Upon finishing culinary school, Bruno moved his career forward to Paris, London, Spain, Germany and the South of France before making his way to the U.S. as a highly skilled private chef.

Alas at 31 it all changed. Bruno knew he was ready for a new career and direction. He now wanted to start the journey to become a stylist. He completed his certification from cosmetology school here in beautiful San Francisco, and started the first 2 years of his new career at Festoon Salon. Bruno’s dynamic education continued onto Bumble and Bumble courses in NYC, and further again with Vidal Sassoon in both SF and Santa Monica. Additionally, Bruno is constantly in the know of advancements in color. About 5 years ago, he went out on his own as a stylist and has developed an amazing reputation as a top hair stylist. He has loved working at Zindagi and has flourished in doing so. Bruno’s hard work and reputation, brought a partnership offer from Zindagi. As of 2015, meet Bruno Compin, superstar Zindagi co-owner extraordinaire.
