“I would never have come to New York if it hadn’t been for Laure,” says Mallett, who was introduced through mutual friends in Paris. “She made everything so easy and held my hand and she’s French. She understood the complexities of bringing a French team here and their demands.”
Mallet is actually Australian, born in Fremantle, but has been living in Paris for 33 years. He opened his first salon in an 18th century hotel particulier in 2003, and his second at the hotel Ritz Paris in 2016. In 2007, he launched his signature haircare line, entirely made in France.
