Elégance in France

Since 2009, the Elégance Groupe has developed a network of national and international schools.
Based on the Nice school model, high-quality establishments have been founded in Madrid (Spain), Minsk (Belarus), then in Vichy, Montpellier and Tarbes. Other projects are in progress, in France and abroad.


Created in Nice in 1969 by Marcelle Gontard, the Gontard school, which became the Elégance-Gontard School, has a long and rich experience in teaching beauty care. Since September 2000 it has been run by Stéphanie Knecht and Jean-Eric Knecht.

The Elégance-Gontard Beauty and Cosmetics private technical school has already trained over 8,500 beauticians of all levels, and continues to train nearly 300 professionals each year...
