Beauty À La Française
With clients such as singer Carla Bruni and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, David Mallett is known to be one of the greatest hairdressers in the world. He recently opened his first salon outside of Paris in the Soho multi-brand boutique, The Webster. David promises his New York salon to be an extension of the original one, which opened in 2003 at the Ritz Paris in the heart of the French capital and was considered one of the most important beauty addresses in the City of Light. The 1,600 square-foot was fashioned by renowned French architect Charles Zana to be a very intimate and exclusive space, combining the grandeur of old-world high-standing with original architectural details of historic New York. Customers are served by the prestigious hands of hairdressers and senior colorists from Mallett’s French team, as well as David himself, who has crossed the ocean to pay special attention to his new space of beauty.
David Mallett is widely considered one of the best hairdressers in the world. To his clients, he is undoubtedly the most trusted one. At the age of 4, in suburban Australia, David Mallett had already decided to become a hairstylist. He has, in his own words, always been “quietly obsessed with hair”. It is an obsession that has been suitably recognized in the world of fashion and beauty. Over the course of his career, Mallett has been on call to many leading fashion executives, supermodels, stylists, and designers. His creative vision and technical innovation have contributed to some of the most iconic images in fashion advertising in the past two decades.
For instance, Karl Lagerfeld chose David to style Christy Turlington for Chanel; and he has also worked on flagship campaigns for Lancel, Dior, L’Oréal, Sonia Rykiel, Givenchy, Pirelli, and La Perla, to name a few. And he has built a trusted relationship with prominent photographers; including Bettina Rheims, David LaChapelle, Ellen Von Unwerth, Paolo Roversi, Peter Lindberg, Patrick de
Demarchelier, and Peter Beard.
