I have alopecia and the result is I have to wear a hair piece. The one I am wearing now was purchase at another location which overcharged me, and did not fit it right resulting in me having to walk around with something that just look like it died on my head. I went to Angelo David Salon today with the hope that at the end….I might look a little more normal. I never hoped to even look pretty, since with this hair piece, pretty seemed very out of reach. I was brought back to the room fairly quickly were Angelo took a look and in suggest a few ways to make the piece I have look better, until I can replace it. In what to me was a whirlwind, they changed the clips (something much smaller then was in, and now it doesn’t hurt or pull to wear), colored the piece and cut it to fit me. Angelo cut the bangs and the front laying that part out. Then Anna finished cutting both my hair and the piece. When Anna was finished and I could see myself in the mirror…I cried. For the first time in over a year, I looked PRETTY! I was the girl I remembered from before alopecia stole my hair. The best part is that the piece I have will last a little longer, and I can get one from here that will make me look gorgeous. A term I thought was long long gone for me. This appointment was worth every penny I spent, and they could not have been nicer! I wanted to say thank you so much for making me believe that I could be pretty again!
My experiences at Angelo David have been great. Rita has been cutting and highlighting my hair for over a year now and she is wonderful. I get a precision haircut and a wonderful blow out. Everyone in the salon is top-notch and professional. Just started working with Julie on my eyebrows ... Another gem and very talented. Thanks to everyone. Keep up the great work.
Rita is an incredible hair artist. She has been cutting my hair for many years and she also cuts the hair of who ever comes to visit me. Now my friends and family come to NY just to see her. This is my first time writing a review for anyone and the first time I have ever received consistently fabulous haircuts. The salon is professional, personable and fun!
Planes and a NYC Taxi to get to Angelo! – I moved from NYC for a job 10 years ago and literally fly in to NY just to get my hair done by Angelo. I've been all over trying to find someone as good...and there just isn't anyone. He is intuitive, he can see what will be right on you and I'd trust him with my hair forever! He's magic. I just flew in last week after having a terrible cut somewhere , and I left there with what he made look like new hair. AMAZING Angelo!!!
How Angelo David Rescued my Hair and inspired me to love Ext – I don't consider myself as someone who doesn't face reality--but I had been avoiding facing this particular reality for quite a long time.
I always loved my long thick hair and over the years as it naturally thinned--I tried to be philosophical about the aging process.
I had been seeing both my colorist and stylist for over 15 years and I trusted them---they were the "professionals"
Every time I would mention the idea of extensions they would invariably say "It's not that bad"--and of course the bald spots were always covered after they fixed my hair.
But when I began to check the back of my head before I left the house and my daughter said--"Mommy -you have a couple of bald spots on your head"--I knew it was time for action.
Of course I asked my stylists for a recommendation--but they were totally ignorant of the process and were somewhat dismissive.
Friends were no help--because frankly, hair was not a general topic of our conversations...
So I did my own research and came upon Angelo David Salon on the Internet and made an appointment..
Now a hair dresser is probably the most intimate relationship a woman will have with a professional aside from her gynecologist--so changing them can produce some anxiety.
The first issue was the location--yes-centrally located in Manhattan--but I was used to the Upper East Side--
And definitely a different atmosphere--Angelo David was far more serious, professional and much smaller-- which I defintiely appreciated.
I was immediately impressed by the friendly demeanor of the staff
Angel offered me a cappuccino and I was given a complimentary private consultation with Carlos
I liked their focus on the health of my natural hair-and the honesty which they dealt with my issues.
I was so eager I insisted they see me within three days---the result was beyond my expectations--beautifully colored, set within my own hair and style-it is impossible to think it is anything but my own--
I would categorically say that Angelo is the State of the Art when it comes to extensions--a consummate professional-
Of course they are expensive--and there is a time commitment--but for me it was a matter of priorities-I wanted the gorgeous thick hair of my youth--
Angelo gave that back to me---and that's priceless............
I would give it negative stars if I could.... – DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. THIS IS A JOKE OF A SALON. I made the mistake of purchasing a Gilt coupon for a single process color. When I arrived, the girl at the counter couldn't find my appointment that I made a week and half earlier. She was too busy paying the delivery guy for her food to focus on me. After she finally found me she told me I would have to wait 15 minutes because the colorist was running late. Annoying, but fine. At 1:25, mind you my appointment was at 1pm, the assistant came to take me to the colorists station, but there was no station available. They only have 4 stations at the salon and they were all taken, so he asked me to sit and wait at the sink. At 1:40pm, he tells me that since there are no stations, that I would have to go sit in this private room and have my hair done.
Here is the kicker -- I asked for a single process color. Darken up the color a bit. She tells me that I will have to pay extra if I want my whole head done because at their salon a single process color means you only get your roots done. Um excuse me? That is called a root touch up. Well not at their salon. She got the manager for me, who also said all they could do for me was my roots, and they would blend it a little down my head but not all the way to the bottom. WHAT!???? So what if I wanted to change the color completely? That doesn't fall into a single process color. Are they INSANE? I walked out and called Gilt to get a refund. I have never heard of such a thing in my last 15 years getting my hair colored. Scam artists.
Someone needs to teach those clowns the difference between a root touch up and a single process color. I am pretty sure you learn that the first day of beauty school.
NYC Best Extension and Color Salon – A coworker of mine had her extensions done here and they looked great. I just wasn't ready to commit to the price then I ended up getting a great living social deal for extensions and color.
The service from the moment you book your appointment to the moment you leave is alway first class and exceptional. The staff is amazing especially all the hard working assistants like Piper.
I have very thin hair that never grew back properly after chemo and it was thin, lackluster and blah. My consultation with Carlos and Angelo was amazing for what I needed to feel like myself again. After I got my extensions in and amazing color by Meghan I looked in the mirror and finally had the hair that I should have been born with.
What Angelo does for a woman with some hair and glue is truly therapeutic art.
I feel feminine, sexy and powerful.
This is the only salon I will go to and it's been almost a year and they always treat me and everyone there amazingly.
best experience ever in a hair salon! – This is the absolute best salon I have ever experienced. Carlos, Meghan, and of course Angelo himself are all expert at figuring out the best hair style, cut, color and extensions. I have absolutely never experienced anything like it in a salon. I have thin, fine hair and the only cut I was ever given was short and blunt. All my life I wanted a sexy, feminine cut to match my personality :). Angelo David has given this to me. The staff is amazing and it doesn't matter if you are a movie star or a "9-5er" they treat everyone with the same level of respect and care. They worked with me to figure out a plan that made sense for my lifestyle. Unlike other cuts, this one gets better as it grows out! I can't recommend Angelo David highly enough!
Made me feel so welcome!! – I have thin hair and couldn't find anyone who could properly cut my hair. I have always wanted extensions, but knew they'd cost a lot. I went into this salon, had an amazing consultation with Carlos, had a complimentary manicure and my cut/color turned out amazing! They made me feel right at home! I opted out of the extensions for now but saw several girls walk by with the most amazingly thick/beautiful hair. As soon as my new bob grows out, I'm running back for some extensions =)
NYC's Best Salon for Hair Extensions and Color! – Don't go anywhere else for hair extensions, I am not kidding! I am THRILLED to no longer have cheesy looking extensions that ruined my ends! Angelo's consultation taught me all about what was best for me and what I wanted, and he matched my haircolor perfectly, as well as matching my fine but wavy texture. No one can even tell I wear them! I don't see that line between my hair and the extensions that even some celebrities have. I can even set and style my hair because it is soft, human hair. Yes, you pay a bit more, but they are the absolute best in NYC. I got a private room and great, caring service. I learned all about how to take care of my hair and even what brush to use. If you ever worried your hair would look bad or fake, no worries here. You can even get clip-in extensions if you want but I like mine because they last and I can wear them all the time now. Love Angelo David, Love my hair agiain.
