Blowouts and Manicures at Angelo David Salon

Blowouts and Manicures at Angelo David Salon

A close-up of my nails after the manicure.

In honor of New York Fashion Week, Angelo David Salon teamed up with Essie last week to provide complimentary blowouts and manicures. I stopped by the salon, which is conveniently located across the street from Grand Central, for a quick pampering session on my lunch break.

After a quick tour of the small space, I headed to the shampoo station for a wash, which included a minty conditioning treatment and relaxing head massage. As I waited for one of the hair stylists, a nail technician started on my manicure. I chose Sew Psyched, a polish shade that initially appeared to be a light army green, but later on looked more like a dark teal.

By the time my nails were starting to dry, I was in the stylist’s chair. I don’t normally get blowouts, so when she asked how I’d like my hair I said I’d like to be surprised. She added some volume and a subtle curl, but not too much hair spray: it stayed intact for the 15-block walk back to the office, but the texture was still touchably soft.

Angelo David offers plenty of other services—from the basics like cuts and color to customized extensions and wigs. They have a line of products that includes special treatments for various hair types, including thinning hair. In addition to manicures, the salon provides makeup applications and brow shaping.
