David Mallet: Magnificence and Happiness

There have been whispers going via the wonder neighborhood lately about one thing referred to as a Tokio Remedy, additionally casually known as a hair facial. So when David Mallet invited me to 1/ attempt the remedy and a couple of/ gawk have a peek at his stylish new salon above The Webster in Soho, I stated sure earlier than the query was totally requested.



The Tokio Inkarami (a hair facial) is a restorative remedy meant to focus on each the chemical and mechanical harm of 1’s hair. It’s a 4 step course of — every step concentrating on a distinct hair-layer (sure, there are apparently layers to at least one’s strands of hair) with particular chemical and molecular biology that was created to not solely deeply restore, however shield your hair in 30 minutes.

All it’s a must to do is lie again and virtually go to sleep whereas somebody administers the 4 conditioning and reparative steps to your hair with beneficiant head massages between every step. What you stroll away with is shiny, bouncy hair that you may’t cease operating your fingers via for the subsequent few weeks.

In fact, I additionally took the time to ask David just a few questions on his transatlantic transfer and the place his obsession with magnificence and hair started…

What’s your first reminiscence of hair? When did you resolve to make it your ardour?
I bear in mind going to the hairdresser with my mom, I used to be very younger, in all probability round four or 5. It was within the days the place you sat below the big hair dryers and I might watch as they took her rollers out and I noticed how joyful she was was with how she taken care of and the way stunning she was.

I used to be very younger after I realized that connection between magnificence and happiness. I advised her after I develop up, I wish to do that very same factor, I wish to make folks joyful.

I used to be fascinated by the smells, the rollers, the method, the whole lot in regards to the salon. Now, I’ve been hairdressing for 40 years, the fascination has modified somewhat bit. However, that connection between magnificence and happiness has stayed the identical. That’s the reason I’m nonetheless on the ground. That’s why we opened right here, too.

Since you opened up your first salon in Paris…
Sure. Now we have two in Paris. Now we have one in close to the Place des Victoires and we’ve got one within the Chanel spa, within the Ritz Resort. After which we opened right here, within the penthouse of The Webster.



After I stepped off the elevator it felt like I stepped right into a Parisian condo…
(Laughs). That’s on objective. We introduced the whole lot from France. Even the floorboards we introduced from France. The whole lot. The books you see, the petrified tree trunks I confirmed you, these got here in my suitcase.

Folks say to us on a regular basis, ‘It smells like Paris.’ It doesn’t odor like Paris, it’s Paris. That desk, these chairs, that suitcase, these bowls, the magazines, the books, the sunshine fixtures, the lamps, the floorboards, entrance desk, the work– all purchased in France and introduced right here.

Once we determined to do that challenge, it was tremendous vital to me that or not it’s related to what we do in Paris. That’s why we even introduced the floorboards from France, I’m so superstitious, I needed all of the objects to be imbued with the DNA we’ve got in Paris. It was painstaking. However, that’s what we needed to do. It’s precisely the identical. And nothing is disconnected from my four year-old reminiscence of what’s happiness and wonder, the method, and the method. It’s all related to the identical factor, the journey is identical.
