The Alessandro Mangerini Salon is perched on top of the Armani store on Madison and 58th Street.

Being the Penthouse of the building, the salon is flooded with natural light thanks to the big skylights and the floor to ceiling glass windows, that opens on the private terrace.

A stylish sanctuary of beauty where wood, stone, and glass are the elements of choice. They reflect the sensitivity for the natural, which embraces the philosophy of its owner. From the moment you walk in you are enveloped in a sense of calm and serenity. I wanted to create a space where all the senses are satisfied what you see, what you smell, what you hear, what you taste and how you feel it is very important to me.

Hairdressing is one of the most fascinating professions, because it works directly with people's dreams, emotions and sensation and gives the ability to create and mold beauty.  People are always searching for a style, which best enhances their features while reflecting their identity and personality.  Listening skills and thorough observation are needed to enable the hairdresser to understand, visualize and translate the image and dream his client has in mind.  The ability to discern beauty and perfect a technique gives the stylists' artistic vision free reign and continuing possibilities to express his/her talents.  My goal is to teach a logical technique which enables you to create and recreate any haircut in a quick and efficient matter.

Each session focuses on new trends, but beauty isn't necessarily a question of fashion.  I believe a hairdresser's role is to encourage individuality rather than conforming.  In this way the haircut will always look "right" when it is properly customized, because it will minimize imperfections and maximize positive features.  I think beauty lies in the creation of harmonious and perfectly balanced proportions; it is about exuding individuality, confidence and grace.  It is a balance between elegance style and modernity.


TECHNIQUE LEVEL 1
This two-day class will provide the first approach to the technique and philosophy.  The first level will introduce you to the logic and simplicity of the cutting method, which used three geometric figures in the layering process.  The object of the class is to achieve a proportional haircut in a quick and efficient manner, based on the structure of a model's face.
SPECIFICS INCLUDE :

• Proportioning volumes in relation to hairlengths.

TECHNIQUE LEVEL 2
After having understood the basics of the technique and reviewing the philosophy, we will work on a more in-depth study of complex styles.  Using advanced basic outlines and the three geometric figures in the layering process, we will explore more complicated volumes and modern effects.  The training will also focus on how to choose a style for the client, considering his/her personality and lifestyle.
