Stepping into David Mallett’s NYC salon will instantly transport you to Paris. Working with an impressive team of designers and artisans, the master hairstylist has crafted a salon experience you won’t find anywhere else in New York.

The Australian-born hair whisperer worked with designer Charles Zana to craft a space that marries the style of his Parisian flagship with New York’s classic architecture. Housed inside The Webster, the result is an enchanting boutique experience that feels like an oasis in the busy sea that is SoHo.

Sunlight spills in through huge windows, bathing the whole room in a warm light - instantly putting you in a serene mood. Gold accents and artisanal furniture dot the sleek-yet-cozy eight-chair studio.

For fashion insiders, there’s a high chance you’ll run into a familiar face or two, which makes every visit feel like you’re catching up with old friends.


Each appointment is tailored to the client’s specific needs. If you're looking to achieve the ‘French It-girl’ effortless waves, look no further than David and his brilliant stylists (I have been going to the same colorist for 15 years whom Mallett brought over from Paris with him early on).


Also expect to be treated to Mallett’s complete line of luxurious product from wash through to finish - giving your hair the star treatment it deserves. His self-titled line is pared down to the basic essentials - shampoos, conditioners, salt sprays, and serums - only the best for the best results. The bonus? The fragrance is transformative and relaxing.

If you’re lucky enough and can manage to spare a few moments either before or after your appointment, don’t forget to peruse the fashion Mecca that is The Webster; you just might walk away with something you won’t find anywhere else.

David Mallett Salon is located at The Webster, 29 Greene St, New York, NY 10013, USA
