With a hair philosophy that encompasses practicality, ease and efficiency, David Mallett is widely considered to be the best hairdresser in Paris. His 14 rue Notre Dame des Victoires salon is set in a a vast 17th Century apartment, and can be visited by appointment only.

"I believe that hair should look amazing in the real world, not just for the time when one is in the salon," Mallett said. "It's not helpful to create an amazing look which only lasts for a moment, or which only exists in photos. I believe that hair should look good long after the client has left the salon. I obsess about technique so my clients don't have to. My philosophy is about being practical, about showing clients how to have beautiful hair even when I won't be there with them."

Our content director, Elyssa Kostopoulos, once described walking into Mallet's salon as "being transported to a dream world", and if the decor and remarkable terrace isn't enough, then the salon's signature Tokio Treatment will definitely take you there. Take our word for it, this is one experience you don't want to miss out on.

2. Christophe Robin

Established in Paris in 1999 by its namesake, celebrity colourist Christophe Robin, this salon at 6 Rue Bachaumont aims to emphasise your natural beauty and scalp health through nourishing and protecting treatments and products. For more than 20 years, Robin and his team have been synonymous with chic hair colouring.

3. L’atelier Blanc

When fashion and film industry hair professional Frederic Mennetrier decided to open his salon, L'Atelier Blanc, he became one of the hottest hair tickets in town. L'Aterlier Blanc is a small and completely whitewashed studio that offers a peaceful canvas upon which Menntetrier helps everyday Parisiennes search for their perfect hair colour.

“[Whether] you’re in studio or you’re on the street, it has to be beautiful,” Frederic Mennetrier says. “I am always thinking about the best way to catch the light.”

4. Massato

The darling hairdresser of fashionable Parisiennes, Massato, haircuts are elevated to the rank of art. His precision cuts and unparalleled vision have made him a favourite amongst fashionable models like Kate Moss, Isabelle Adjani and Sophie Marceau.
