I love Paris, I love the precious historical place we have, I love beauty and women beauty that become enhance with hairstyle makeup and splendid dress, so a unique opportunity to combine them in a unique place ;

Fluctuat nec mergitur is a Latinphrase meaning "Tossed by the waves but never sunk". The motto has been used since at least 1358 by the city of Paris.

"Les Précieuses":Preciosity is a movement and a French literary fashion of the seventeenth century. The Precious is a wink to one of the most famous comedy in one act and prose of Molière in 1659;

The City Hall of Paris has housed the municipal institutions of Paris since 1357;

It is located in the Place de l'Hôtel-de-Ville in the 4th arrondissement of Paris. During the Paris Commune, the fire on 24 May 1871 reduced the palace to ashes. The Town Hall is the largest municipal building in Europe. The festive hall of the Hotel de Ville of Paris was conceived as the republican replica of the Hall of Mirrors of the Palace of Versailles built two centuries earlier.After being burned down during the Paris Commune (1871), the town hall was rebuilt in the Renaissance style during the Third Republic. The frescoes on the visits to the Salle des Fetes represent the provinces of France.

For those whom had not the opportunity to visit the Paris city Hall , go for it;
