As excited as we all get for warmer months to approach, city folk know that with that comes several island pet peeves. For one, walking is great exercise, but it’s also not super pleasant in those hotter months. Truth be told, the city can be dirty, and as you would imagine, the less clothed and closer to the ground that foot is, the greater the likelihood it needs some pampering. Because what else happens in summer? We take great pleasure in showing off our nails and toes. Some of us find this a chore, while others see more of a fun responsibility, and some don’t consider it at all. Plus, we go out a whole lot more. Many completing a full metamorphoses, emerging from their winter cocoons into social, summer summer butterflies. So, before you spread your wings and fly into Spring, make sure your beauty is buzzing with a stop at the Angelo David salon first.
Angelo David, located in the heart of midtown Manhattan on Madison ave offers a little bit of everything. Widely known for their specialties in Couture Hair Extensions and hair loss treatments and solutions, owner Angelo David Pisacreata prides himself on the basis that good hair starts from the inside out. The salon offers complimentary consults to each new client which includes a hair synopsis and plan of action ranging from extensions, to color and even a hair detox program created by David himself.
But specialities aside, if you find yourself needing that basic end-of-the-week pep in your step; your ‘getting ready for the weekend‘ mani/pedi and blowout, then this midtown salon is the perfect place for your beauty break.
Head up to the second floor, and once you’ve gotten comfortable, start with a manicure. Manicures include one of the best hand massages I can remember getting in recent history. Bonus points for using L’Occitane moisturizer which always smells amazing.
Next, head for a shampoo, which we all secretly know is the best part of going to any salon. No matter who you are, no one can hate on a great hair wash and head massage. And unlike other salons around the city, this one doesn’t skimp on the nurturing. Instead of rushing through everything like we so often do, go to Angelo David when you have time to spare. It will be worth the stand still for a few hours, I promise.
Make your way to a chair for your weekend, (or week day if that’s your thing) blowout. Celebrity stylist Dion Moore will blow dry and straighten your hair to pin perfection, all in the time it takes to curate one successful Instagram post.
Many women know that even in our most sour of days, sometimes something as simple as great hair can make a mood of difference. If you’re not in a bad place, who doesn’t just love getting beautified a little, regardless of your Saturday night plans. Your nails and hair won’t know the difference, but if it makes you feel good, then who cares who sees it? If you are going out, then strut away! You will most likely acquire that ‘I just got my hair and nails did’ swagger that somehow inherently comes to all women once we exit a salon.
Angelo David is located on Madison Avenue between 48th and 49th street on the second floor.
