After having a week to ease into the new year, it is time to implement those resolutions we made back in December. I am a habitual flat ironer, which leads to split ends and a dried out mane; so 2013 is about updating my hair and not killing it. For guidance I brought my conundrum to the Australian born hair guru living in Paris, David Mallett. Within moments his eyes lit up and he said “plaits!” After a few minor tweaks David updated the standard boring braid into a romantic Parisian updo (easy to replicate at home in minutes). Watch and learn!
“I grew up in Australia and I lived in England for a long time, as well as Italy and in France — I traveled a lot so it was a real conglomerate education for me, aesthetically, through the years. The salon is a little mix of all the things I’ve seen. A lot of things that come into the shop are pieces that I have collected over the last twenty years via traveling and antiquing. All the animals came from parks and zoos. None of them were killed — we have certificates for them all, so I can actually travel with them. She is first one we bought (points to the panther), Sybil.
