About ten years ago I read an article in the New York Times that raved about Dov and his Hair Salon. My hair was extremely thin and I was ready to take the plunge and do something about it. Dov made a hair piece and gave it a superb, flattering cut. It made me look and feel wonderful.Now almost ten years later, the hair piece still looks great. I wear it everyday. I'm about to celebrate a special Birthday and decided that the one present I'd give to myself was to continue to care for my hair. I went to visit Dov, and decided to get a new hair piece, why not have something beautiful, and enjoy another ten years of glamor.
Dov is brilliant. I have been to many glitzy salons over the years searching for someone to be able to restore my now faded red hair color to its original vibrancy while still making it appear age appropriate. Not one was able to do a satisfactory job - one even had to 'strip' the first color attempt and try again. Dov got it right the first time with softness and shine. He restyled my hair in a cut I would not have thought to do, but which looked great.
The salon is unpretentious, friendly and welcoming. The staff is gracious and know their trades. This place is a find.
Dov is one of my angels on earth. I am a 38 YO mother of three young children diagnosed with Stage IV liver melanoma. In the beginning of my journey, my husband and I didn't think I was going to loose my hair from my medication...but in time the tables turned and it started coming out quickly. I was in a desperate situation and got a quick fix wig from a local salon in my small town. It was not "me"! So I did some research and came across Dov's profile. With my best friend and a leap of faith, we traveled into the city to have a consultation with Dov.
As soon as I met Dov, I felt a sense of relief. He was so kind and gentle and compassionate. He asked to see a pic of me before my hair loss...that was sad for me because I looked so healthy and pretty. I hadn't been feeling that way for a while. Within minutes, Dov had an amazing wig on my head that made me feel like the woman I had missed seeing in my reflection. Mirrors are no longer my compass, but it's really wonderful feeling like you aren't deflated anymore.
Dov, you are a kind soul and I am so grateful to have you as part of my journey! You are a master at your craft! XO
I am in my fifties, and I was unhappy with the thin and fine texture of my hair. I had no volume and no style to speak of. I decided to do something about it and went to see DOV. He designed a hairpiece for me that suits my face. It was the perfect color match, length and style, and I knew immediately that it would enhance my self esteem and confidence, and it did. People tell me that it is very sexy, and I love the way it frames my face. I can also wear a variety of berets, which was impossible before. It is snap to put on. I'm thrilled.
Dov is the best, hands-down, two thumbs up!! That's it!!
Dov has been my only hair cutter, stylist for 2 plus decades.
I travel to NYC to see him from wherever I am living - Hawaii, Southern California, Texas, Western NY - there is no other once Dov works his magic. Every person in the salon is like part of a family and you can count on anyone giving you an honest opinion, whether it be about your natural look or about a wig. Dov's wigs are something to behold. No other compare to the authentic, natural look and feel of his hand-crafted marvels. There is no chance to take here, just do yourself a favor and let Dov work his magic for an even better 'you'!
I truly cannot say enough good things about Dov... To start, he has been the only hair stylist I will have cut my hair despite living in Texas! My mother has been coming to Dov for over 25 years, and even as a young child I wouldn't let anyone else cut my hair. Apparently it resulted in a bit of a scene in the FAO Schwartz children's salon... No one else even remotely competes with the quality and beauty of his work.
After dealing with chronic disease for over 10 years, which would normally have resulted in thinned and weakened hair, Dov was always able to work his magic and keep my hair healthy and full of body. We have lived as far away as Hawaii, and always look forward to a yearly trip back to the eastcoast to see Dov!
Dov is an absolute genius and master when it comes to every aspect of hair care. You will never have to specify what "works" or "doesn't work" for your face shape, because he always knows. You can rest assured that during a visit to Dov's salon, you can relax in knowing that the result will be more beautiful than you could have imagined, and that you will leave feeling like the goddess you are!
My life has changed since coming to DOV Salon a few months ago. I have been slowly losing my hair over the past few years. It became hard to look in the mirror and feel beautiful. Since getting my topper, which is beautiful (brunette and curly), I have noticed my confidence rise significantly. I actually think I look good leaving the house. The hair is high quality and looks fantastic. I would 100% recommend Dov.
Dov is truly a genius. I went to him on a recommendation when my hair started falling out due to medication three months before my wedding. Because of the short timeframe and not knowing how much hair I would lose, we opted for a wig. He not only made me an amazing wig, but also did a beautiful job cutting and coloring my hair so that the hair loss was less noticeable and I didn't feel like I had to wear the wig all of the time. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received on my hair from people who had no idea I was wearing a wig. Thanks to Dov, I truly felt beautiful for all of the wedding events and my honeymoon.
What a wonderful experience it has been going to Dov's salon. I truly feel he is a genius and has changed my life. I would cry at my thinning hair on top and be miserable every time I had to wash it to see all the hair in the shower going down the drain. I went to Dov in May and he advised on a topper. It is stunning. He told me what color to get and I can't believe how natural it looks. No one can believe its me. I would go back to him tomorrow and highly recommend him. He is a genius!
Lightweight and comfortable, my hairpiece from DOV takes ten years off of my appearance. I highly recommend DOV.
