Blowout on Natural Hair at the Angelo David Salon NYC

by Joanna E
I received a complimentary blowout at the Angelo David Salon in exchange for sharing my experience.

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 provide haircuts, color, straightening, makeup, nail, and waxing services. Read more about my experience getting a natural hair blowout at the Angelo David Salon NYC.

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 decor in the waiting area. I sat down for a few minutes then was 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 stylist 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. When shampooing and conditioning, I was asked about my current regimen, the products used on my natural hair. I was also given a recommendation to deep condition and get a trim more often.

Natural Hair after Washing

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 blowdry 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.

This came out really nice. The technique used on your hair, would you recommend it for low prosity 4c hair?

Joanna E March 4, 2016 - 10:14 PM

I’m not 100% sure about low porosity because I’m high, but the technique worked pretty well for me. Some salons do a free consultation before they style. You can do your research and see which one works best for you.

They did a great job with your hair. I haven’t been to a salon in years. My hair has been so damaged by all the weaves, coloring etc.. it is non existent. I went natural and don’t care. I do need a trim though right now :-).

So healthy and full! I’m glad you had a great experience! ♡

Kim March 4, 2016 - 10:00 PM

Your hair looks great. I’m always nervous about going to different stylist since I have natural hair, too. Some people tend to use too much heat, and not the right products. This one did a good job. Love your lipstick.

Glad you had a great experience. I’m always so worried about going to the hair salon with my natural hair. I never know if the stylist really know how to treat and care for natural hair.

Joanna E March 8, 2016 - 10:47 AM

I blow it out maybe once a year. Funny when people that aren’t used to it see my hair growth.

Siobhan (BeFree Project) March 5, 2016 - 11:16 AM

What a beautiful salon! Your hair looks really pretty and it’s cool that you get to experience it again when you get your ends trimmed.

They did a really good job. Your hair looks long and healthy.

Audrey March 5, 2016 - 11:44 AM

I have to say, I think it’s incredibly brave of you to set foot into a salon not being 100% sure if they would be equipped to handle your natural hair… And your good faith and bravery definitely paid off, because your blow out looks FABULOUS!!!

Holly March 5, 2016 - 9:53 PM

I don’t visit the salon anymore because I’m more of a DIY when it comes to my hair but I’m surprised your hair lasted for so long. That was one heck of a blowout!
