To celebrate the launch of David Mallett Haircare products on the Adore Beauty site later this month, we’re also very excited to be hosting a Q&A with the team at David Mallett Australia to answer all your questions on Tuesday, January 30th!
At the age of 4, in suburban Australia, David Mallett had already decided to become a hairstylist. He has, in his own words, always been “quietly obsessed with hair”. It is an obsession which has been recognized by some of the world’s most celebrated and influential people.
When he arrived in Paris at the age of 27, he had 11 years of experience, and a determination to succeed. Within a short time, his talent was being championed by Jean-Baptiste Mondi no, and Emmanuelle Alt, fashion editor of French Vogue.
Now, David’s work, and that of his team, is in demand for the public and private lives of some of the world’s most famous people; with clients who include Kate Winslet, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Charlotte Rampling, Clémence Poésy, Demi Moore, Diane Kruger, Isabelle Adjani, Julianne Moore, Karen Mulder, Kristin Scott Thomas, Liv Tyler, Marion Cotillard, Naomi Campbell, Penélope Cruz, Sharon Stone, and Vahina Giocante.
David’s creative vision and technical innovation have contributed to some of the most iconic images in fashion advertising in the past two decades. Recently, Karl Lagerfeld chose David to style Christy Turlington Chanel; and he has also worked on flagship campaigns for Lancel, Dior, L’Oréal, Sonia Rykiel, Givenchy, Pirelli, La Perla.
He has built a trusted relationship with the world’s most influential photographers; including Bettina Rheims, David LaChapelle, Ellen Von Unwerth, Paolo Roversi, Peter Lindberg, Patrick de Demarchelier, and Peter Beard, And, as a tribute to the relationships that he has built with them on set, many of the photographers have also become clients.
Away from his work on photoshoots, fashion campaigns and movies, David has developed – with his personal clients – a unique philosophy on hairstyling; one which combines absolute glamour with a distinct point of view on practicality.
“I believe that hair should look amazing in the real world, not just for the time when one is in the salon. 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.” - says David.
The David Mallett salon and his haircare range is an extension of his personal philosophy. His haircare products create a light and airy hair texture through highly effective skin-friendly formulas that are so pure that they are also suitable for very sensitive scalps and allergy sufferers. The scents of the perfumed products are carefully measured to ensure their complete compatibility with the skin.
