Celebrity Hair Stylist and Leading Hair-Loss Expert Angelo David Offers a Range of Hair Loss Solutions

unnamed-11

From the Pros:

World-renowned stylist and thinning-hair expert Angelo David Pisacreta, who has worked with thousands of hair-loss clients over the last 25 years, is one of New York’s leading authorities on fine and thinning hair. He and his team of experts at Angelo David Salon have consulted with both men and women whose hair loss comes from a multitude of causes, including genetic disorders (which are behind as much as 90% of hair loss), bad reactions to hair products and external impacts, such as losing a limb. Notes Angelo, “Whatever the stage of hair loss a client is experiencing, we focus on three things: prevent, maintain and correct or enhance.”

When it comes to hair damage, it is vital to use the right hair care products to help prevent hair loss in the first place.  Often, these can be very simple. For example, Angelo David combs, which are meticulously handmade from a single sheet of high-quality, Italian-produced cellulose acetate, have no burrs to catch and break the hair or create split ends. Their gently rounded teeth ensure an even glide through natural or faux hair with no scalp irritation. Additionally,Angelo David VOL hair products instantly boost volume without questionable additives. They are sulfate- and sodium-chloride free, and contain several beneficial ingredients, such as honey extract for moisturizing, natural anti-oxidants to fight pollutants and silk amino acids, which build protein and strengthen hair.

Stress is a common factor behind hair loss; some women lose up to 70% of their hair from stress related-illnesses. Common stressors that cause hair loss include: starting or stopping the use of birth control pills, scalp sunburn, crash diets, child birth, surgery, divorce, a traumatic accident, taking anti-depressants or other medications and becoming a vegan or vegetarian. Stress shedding is usually temporary, and most women dealing with thinning hair are between the ages of 25 and 35. However, for the one in four women who are predisposed to hereditary hair loss, the hair will not grow back on its own. That’s why it is important to follow hair-health regimens to help maintain the hair you have. To that end, Angelo created Hair Detox, an all-natural supplement that helps anyone maintain a healthy head of hair and combat stressors and environmental aggressors.

When it comes to permanent hair loss, after age of 50, many women experience senescent alopecia, the type of hair loss that naturally occurs with age. Unlike female pattern baldness, both the duration of hair growth cycle and the diameter of the hair follicle decreases, leading to thinning hair, eyebrows and eyelashes. Angelo knows how damaging that hair loss can be to women’s self-image and confidence. That’s why he created Couture Hair to enhance the hair you have or correct the visual appearance of fine and thinning hair.

Angelo David Salon’s signature, customized Couture Hair includes hair extensions, fillers, hair pieces, wigs and additions, as well as other customized options for women and men who are experiencing true hair loss. The salon has private consultation rooms, where its team of experts provides thorough, highly personalized consultations. They sample strands of your own hair, so that the Couture Hair can be identically matched to it in texture, density, thickness, color and wave pattern. Some hair solutions mimic the natural scalp, so they can be added right at the part line, while others conceal thinning spots in specific areas, such as the back of the crown. After the application of Couture Hair, the natural hair is cut and styled for a flawless blend.

Angelo David, who has become known as the “go-to” stylist for Couture Hair extensions and thinning hair solutions, recently appeared on “Good Morning America,” working his makeover miracles on three women with hair loss problems. According to Angelo, “There is nothing more rewarding than being able to change how someone sees herself, boost her self-esteem and uplift her feelings, all within the course of an hour or two. Every day I get to make someone look and feel wonderful.”

Dove is turning 60!!!!

This month, Dove will celebrate the 60th anniversary of its iconic Dove Beauty Bar. Dove is a bit older than I am but I remember using Dove as a child and continue to do so today.

Many things have changed over the past 60 years but Dove has stayed the same and we would not want it any other way.  Thank you Dove!

To commemorate this milestone, the brand is kicking off a new campaign that celebrates women redefining beauty over the past 60 years and the beauty essential that’s been there through it all unchanged – the Dove Beauty Bar.  It’s the Dove brand’s honor to have been by women’s side since 1957, caring for them every step of the way, and we are encouraging women to share how they will continue to #RaisetheBeautyBarimgresThis  short digital video shows a retrospective of the iconic beauty moments over the past 60 years championing the strides women have made in beauty. And, Dove will even release a limited-edition bar with the word “care” engraved on it.
