Celebrity HairStylist: David Stanko

david stanko celebrity hair stylist and coloristA few weeks ago I met an incredible colorist and stylist that I have to rave about, David Stanko.  He is cool, hip, suave, and overall a complete charmer!   David Stanko’s first salon job was in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at age 18, cleaning hairbrushes and mixing color. Way humble beginnings for this celebrity colorist.  Recently, Stanko spearheaded the testing and technical execution of Redken’s haircolor and lightener brands. Today, as Haircolor Consultant for Redken 5th Avenue NYC and a working salon colorist in New York City, David has the unique opportunity to exercise his wide range of gifts and that he does. 

I walked into the Angelo David Salon in New York City, steps from Grand Central Station.  David greeted me in the hallway with complete charm overload.  I had a divine cup of coffee and I was on my way to highlight heaven.  He performed three incredible treatments on my hair; sparse highlights near the bangs just to lighten up my very dark brown hair, Redken’s Shades EQ clear gloss (which I will elaborate more in another post) to create a lustrous shine, and Redken’s Real Control treatment to soften the hair (see more on Redken Real Control). 

Can I just say wow!  Within in seconds David analyzed my hair, asked me a few lifestyle questions, and devised a highlight course of action.  I can’t say enough about him!  The results were incredible.  The lustrous shine and dazzling sparkle was amazing.  Clearly he knows what he is doing. David’s haircolor work has been styled by such talents as Serge Normant, Oribe and Orlando Pita. He has also been featured in the pages of top fashion publications, including Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, In-Style, Latina and Elle, not to mention nearly every North American trade magazine American Salon, Modern Salon, Launchpad, Estetica and Hair Color & Design Magazine.

In the NYC area and want to make an appointment?  Call and make an appointment at the Angelo David Salon at 212-813-6620.

WEN Collection by Chaz Dean

WEN hair collectionHave you all heard of the WEN Collection of hair care products created by celebrity stylist Chaz Dean?  I have been hearing some fantastic reviews of the eco-friendly, sodium sulfate free hair care line.  In the 80’s Chaz helped to develop hair care products for other hair companies.  He noticed that those lines included harsh detergents which made the hair dull, lifeless, and frizzy.  This was how WEN was born. 

The WEN hair care line cleanses the hair with astringent and antibacterial properties without lathering.  Yes that does take some getting used to.  The best part – there are no detergents or harsh chemicals in the products.  The results – sheen, luster, moisture, and strength to your hair!

Chaz is up to more good stuff.  Chaz is making available for the first time, to the public, an exclusive formula he has been using on his celebrity clients for over 15 years – the WEN Re-Moist Hydrating Mask, in Lavender, Cucumber Aloe, Sweet Almond Mint and Fig. This deep, intensive treatment, which may also be applied as an overnight conditioner, effectively re-hydrates hair to a healthy shine. Finally there’s the WEN Styling Crème; a weightless, paraben-free formula for manageable styling while eliminating frizz, and adding shine and volume to hair while acting as a protective barrier from humidity and the damaging heat of styling tools.

This is something I have to try out!  Product review soon to come.

Cutler’s Steps to Get a Good Haircut

rodney cutler cutler salonStylist, Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salon, shares several tips that will ensure you get the perfect haircut the next time you enter a salon.  Read and learn I know we all have made mistakes when going to a salon. 

 

  1. Style your hair before going to the salon. When you arrive at the salon, we want to see your hair the way you normally style it. We want to see your abilities, so that when we design a hair style, you can actually do it yourself. You don’t want to get a haircut and then get home and you can’t manage it.
  2. You should never do a consultation with wet hair. The consultation is the most important thing and it’s when the biggest mistakes happen. We want to see your hair when it’s dry, what the texture feels like, if there are any colics or other qualities we might not detect when the hair is wet.
  3. Show your stylist photos of hairstyles you like. It’s not about trying to look like a celebrity, but about saying “This is what I like,” so everyone’s on the same page.
  4. Posture is important during a cut. When you cross your legs, you tend to lean in one direction. Keep your legs uncrossed and sit up straight. Otherwise, you might end up with a crooked haircut. And you need to have your head flexible, but not so wobbly like a bobblehead doll.
  5. Speak up when you’re not happy with the haircut. Salons don’t always get it right. Don’t be afraid to say something if you don’t like the cut. The hair salon wants you to come back, so they want to make sure they provide you with a cut and style that you love.
