Christophe Robin Salon
16 Rue Bachaumont, 8th Arrondissement
World-famous hair-color guru Christophe Robin’s salon in the up-and-coming 2nd arrondissement has got to be one of the most quintessentially Parisian places on earth. Not only will you walk out with your best hair ever, you’ll have spent a few hours swanning around in a brightly colored silk kimono, cosseted in the Tony Duquette-inspired interiors that feel more like a home than a salon, watching fabulous Parisians in their natural habitat. Even if you don’t color your hair, go for a cut, blowout, or even a manicure. And, if you don’t have the time, stop in to have your hair shampooed for free in an amazing, Venus-on-the-half-shell basin.
David Mallett
14 Rue Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, 2nd
Australian-born hair stylist David Mallet's impeccable reputation is understandable: His rolodex of devoted editors, celebrities, and designers is deep, plus his army of pros do hair in a gorgeous, sun-washed space that's far from prying eyes. Herringbone floors, gold gilded molding, Eero Saarinen tulip chairs, and an aviary of rare taxidermied birds (white peacocks, ostriches, et al) are nice touches, but they all play second fiddle to David Mallet's truly transformative cuts and color.
Joëlle Ciocco
8 Place de la Madeleine, 8th
Clients swear that Joëlle Ciocco’s blend of buccal massage (to stretch and tone facial muscles) and product (her eponymous line of cleansers and serums is insanely hardworking) has the power to make you look like a teenager. What's truly remarkable is that she's actually a biochemist by trade, so there's real science behind her technique. An appointment with Joëlle is not cheap, but the results are kind of priceless. That said, booking with a member of her team is the next best thing and much easier on the wallet.
Kshanti Yoga
13 Rue du Vieux Colombier, 7th Arrondissement
It’s appropriate that this beautiful, cozy yoga studio that focuses on patience and benevolence is in an old church. The studio’s goal is to help you find the right practice for you, so they teach many different styles of yoga, including jivamukti, hatha, vinyasa, and chromayoga; they also offer circus-inspired classes to get kids involved at a young age. Everyone is welcomed with a pair of slippers, and the vibe is so relaxed that it’s hard to resist hanging out for a post-class snack in the adjacent Maisie Cafe.
