Disclosure: I received a complimentary service at Angelo David Salon in exchange for media coverage.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day and Fashion Week, I headed to the Angelo David Salon NYC for a natural hair blowout. If you’re thinking of visiting, the Angelo David Salon NYC is a few blocks away from Grand Central Terminal. The salon is known for its couture extensions but provides haircuts, color, straightening, makeup, nail, and waxing services.

Angelo David Salon NYC Interior
After protective styling for most of the winter, it was time to switch up hairstyles. I was greeted at the front desk and was immediately impressed by the décor in the waiting area. I sat down for a few minutes and was later escorted to the shampoo area for a quick hair consultation.
Hair Consultation and Blowout on Natural Hair
I don’t straighten my hair often. In the past, I’ve visited salons for a natural hair blowout based on recommendations. I was nervous this time. When researching the Angelo David Salon, I didn’t see anyone with natural hair being treated on their social media platform.
After a conversation with one of the stylists during my consultation, I found out they provide service for all hair textures.
One thing I do appreciate about going to the salon is getting a professional’s insight on the right and wrong things I’m doing with my hair.
The whole natural hair blowout and straightening process took about two hours. Before straightening, my hair was dried via the tension method using cool heat and my stylist Dion used tons of Redken Pillow Proof for a heat protectant to blow-dry and flat iron.
We didn’t have time to trim, but I was really pleased with the end results. I loved Dion and the team at the Angelo David salon’s professionalism during my visit. Even though I was his last client, I still received great service.
It was just an added plus that I had an event to go to right after my visit. I wore my hair straightened for two weeks before going back to curly without heat damage.
