A 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.
