The fantasy coiff women dream of becomes a reality at  The Angelo David Salon in New York City where luscious locks are  achieved with Couture fillers and hair additions that are customized to each individual lifestyle.   

  Celebrity Hairstylist Angelo David with his movie star looks and soft spoken demeanor treats every client like a celebrity.  He explains  that every day a different hair story walks into his salon.  From a bad color job  or over processing,  he helps restore what was lost to the fullest possible extent.

Patiently and with an acute meticulous style, he uses his signature process  of building hair up in thickness and fullness with the piece by piece addition of each custom couture filler.  The seamless application process is carefully executed, after which the hair is cut and styled just like one’s own natural hair. 

Angelo employs 1 to 20 different types of Couture extensions. No cookie cutter stuff for this talented hair expert who customizes the client’s hair the same way that Vera Wang designs a wedding dress, personally and crafted to each individual lifestyle.

Glam hair, red carpet hair, whatever your dream hair, there is not much that Angelo and his team of twenty trained stylists cannot do.   Whether you want to go from short to long, thin to thick, or just get your sexy back, hair extensions, when done correctly, can be your best kept secret.

 The look of flawless and genuine hair is achieved with Angelo David’s trademarked Angelo David Couture Hair Extensions and Additions (couture extensions for length; additions and fillers for fuller, thicker hair; fringe for bangs or hairline correction; and wigs) a collection of customizable, 100-percent genuine tresses.  Angelo will first talk with you in one of the salon’s private consultation rooms and discuss your day to day routine, analyze your locks and create a look that will blend seamlessly into your own individual lifestyle.


 Angelo is committed to working with hair extensions so it looks like your own hair.  From visible adhesives to an unnatural finish, without expert selection, application and care, extensions will fail to achieve the desired, stylishly flawless look.

I just discovered one of the best makeups on the market for my skin type, it’s
Natural FX Water based Foundation with SPF 15, it spreads on like silk and provides complete coverage of those areas you want to hide from view. I love it, love it.    The company also has a Bronzed FX Mineral Bronzing Powder and Nouveau 10 fps, Mineral Foundation Powder that are exceptional. Had fun trying them all on for Valentine’s Day date. Of course there’s much more to choose from at
Another new product worth mentioning and getting your sponge and brushes on is Helio Mineral Cosmetics.  The company sent me an assortment of foundations, concealers, blush, bronzers, shadows and lip balms to sample and I love them all. They go on nicely and look great. Check out the extensive menu at
More  new stuff from  Mixology–this company offers fabulous Loose Mineral Foundations, Mineral Veil/Setting Powder, Eye Liner, dry and wet shadows at affordable prices. I only sampled the shadows and one of their special brushes and I like it. Check out their Beauti-licious Club at  
All the makeup in the world won’t help you look good unless you…..
Hydrate,hydrate, hydrate– for a glowing complexion, high energy and de-toxing.   It’s my mantra and I’m sticking to it. But I hate water and it’s always an effort for me to drink enough, but that’s before I discovered ZICO Coconut Waters. They not only taste better than the plain stuff but they have more potassium than bananas and lots of added benefits. I was hooked after my first 60-calorie carton of Zirco Natural. I also like the
mango and  passion fruit, but prefer the natural. All have same calorie count and cost about $2 per drink.
 Made from 100 percent pure  coconut water ZICO Coconut Water is more effective than water for full-body rehydration and contains none of the added sugars or flavors associated with other sports drinks. It also contains more potassium than a banana and five essential electrolytes. What’s more, in terms of other spa treatments such as facials, drinking ZICO can help maximize effects by producing beautiful skin from the inside out. ZICO is packed with cytokinins which are powerful antioxidants that detoxify the skin by removing free radicals from the body. They also aid in the regeneration of new skin cells and help clear debris from older cells, leading to healthier, younger-looking and softer skin.
