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.

“It took four years and 27 tries to get the serum right,” he says of the appropriately named DM#027 serum. The lightweight and amazing serum smoothes split ends, eliminates frizz, and restores shine with a few drops, containing a base of macadamia nut oil and smells faintly of ylang-ylang and sweet almond. I could not agree more, it is an amazing product. A perfectly soft scent leaving my hair sleek and shining.
“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. 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.
