I have personally been to Angelo David on several occasions–for haircuts and blowouts with the wonderful stylist Ivy, for NYFW editor’s lounges and even for the wonderful events that they do to help cure cancer via The Samuel Waxman Foundation. By the way, the latter is the greatest place on earth to get $20 blowouts–and all the money goes to charity. It happens late in the summer so be sure to follow the Angelo David Salon on Twitter (their handle is @angelodavidhair) or on their FB page to find out when that is happening each year.
Besides a gorgeous modern salon with cutting edge stylists and a world class manicurist named Marjana, this is a salon that goes above and beyond the normal services. This is THE place in town to get a custom human hair wig chosen and styled for you by Angelo himself (they start at $2,800). They look entirely natural not only because they are human hair and can be dyed to match your color exactly but because Angelo has all sorts of trade secrets that make them look believable. The pre-made wigs are ones with deeper than usual parts and he dyes the roots to look like natural hair growth. He also cuts the wigs exactly to the client’s specifications.
Angelo is also an expert on extensions for women with thinning hair–whether it be naturally thinning or due to chemotherapy. Various types of bonding procedures are used and I hear only raves from his clientele–I looked very closely at their heads and there was no way I could tell that their hair was not 100 per cent theirs! (FYI, $350 and up is the for the hair extensions, fillers, clip-in’s and additions.)
