I was invited to a pamper session at the Angelo David Salon in Midtown Manhattan and I couldn’t have been more thrilled when the day finally came! Angelo David is best known for his hand-crafted, customized Couture hair extensions, which have made him highly sought-after by celebrities–and those who just look like celebrities!
Angelo David at work
When I walked in, I was promptly greeted by a friendly receptionist and offered a cappuccino, which I eagerly accepted as I hadn’t had my daily dose of caffeine yet. I switched into a smock and was led into the main room where I met my stylist Rita and her assistant Drew.
Drew gave me an amazing shampoo, which invigorated my scalp and put me into a relaxed trance, all at the same time. Next I was sat under the dryer with a deep conditioner slathered on my hair. While the conditioner penetrated my strands, the manicurist got to work on my nails. I decided on a deep eggplant, which coincidentally matched my sweater!
Fifteen minutes later, I was ready to be rinsed out and then I was in the stylist’s chair. Both the stylist and her assistant worked at blow-drying and flat-ironing my hair.
Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil was used on my hair before blow-drying. When Drew told me it was an oil, I had to resist the urge to protest and decided to trust the experts. My hair is fine, and normally oil weighs it down and somehow ends up migrating to my forehead! But to my delight, my hair remained bouncy and light. I think I have a new product crush!!
At that point, I admitted to Rita that I had recently given myself a trim–what can I say, sometimes I just like to take matters into my own hands! She had a little extra time and gave me a quick trim to clean up any unevenness.
I loved the experience. When you walk into Angelo David Salon, you feel like the star–there is no question that some serious pampering and beautification is about to take place. I was put at ease when Drew didn’t even flinch after my straightened hair turned into tight coils during the shampoo–I’m always concerned with stylists’ ability to handle my unrelaxed hair. I was also happy that she didn’t chastise me for trimming my own hair!
