Head Biologique Recherche Skincare Specialist
From an early age, Firozé was groomed to be a part of the fashion and beauty world. Raised in two of the industries’ capital cities, London and Paris, by her mother, a professional nutritionist, and naturalist, and her sister, acclaimed Iranian actress, Vida Gahremany, Firozé gained a unique and practical perspective on glamour.
After completing her basic education in England, Firozé returned to Paris where she studied stage makeup and earned a degree in Cosmetology from L’ Institut de Maquillage, later she was trained under Doctor Philippe Allouche and was certified as a skin-care, and facial remodeling expert by the Institue of Biologique Recherche in Paris France.
In 1978, Firozé moved to the United States and continued to work as a successful model. After moving to New York City in 1982, she found her real love was working behind the scenes at fashion shoots. There she found herself giving advice to models and actors, who consulted with her about their skincare and nails.
In 1983, encouraged by her growing roster of celebrity clients, Cher, Heidi Klum, Kim Cattrall, Cindy Crawford, Angela Basset, Ed Harris, Uma Thurman, and Oprah Winfrey- Firozé turned her expertise into a full-time business and opened her own Spa in Manhattan.
