Paris

David Mallet

David Mallet is the place to go in Paris for a truly luxury experience. 'Quietly obsessed with hair' (in his own words) since the age of 4, David has a lifetime of experience. You might end up finding yourself sitting besides a French actress of the likes of Clemence Poesy or Marillon Cotillard, but this Paris salon is much more than its celebrity clientele, it's a true pampering experience.

Address
14 rue Notre Dame des Victoires, 75002 Paris
Ismarie

And if you are looking for a very exclusive experience that only some lucky locals know, go to Ismarie, hard to find (she doesn't even have a website), in a very secret apartment and very, very cool!
