Come Monday, in varying degrees depending on region, France is set to throw open its doors and deconfine. The burning question: What are we going to do about our hair?
Stylist David Mallett’s post-confinement waiting list is hundreds of names long. A stampede does not combine well with new distancing rules that require even lower density in his already rather vast, The World of Interiors-ified salon around the corner from Chez Georges in the Second Arrondissement. “We have so many clients who have to be done. But we have to consider hygiene, safety, and security, too. I can’t squeeze people in.” (Mallett’s satellite salon, at the Ritz Paris, and his New York salon, at the Webster, are still closed until further notice.)
