The Fall 2013 Bridal Collection by Angel Sanchez was beyond big & white. The designer known for his luxury ready to wear and couture one of a kind dresses, shows off the magic of a romantic yet modern girl that is ready to say ” I do”.
Our creative director, Leonard Zagami, and his team created a halo of silver on top of cascading waves, with the length that every bride dreams of. The key Zagami and Sanchez say, is to make it a fantasy, and keeping your eye on the dress and the silhouette, the rest is up to the girl that is wearing it on her special day!
How Leonard Zagami Created The Look:
• “I first applied Moroccanoil Curl Defining Mousse on damp hair, mostly on the root areas and top for subtle lift. I then combed Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream through the rest of the hair for soft, natural-looking hold and to hydrate and smooth the ends of the hair.”
• “Next, I blow dried the hair with a Moroccanoil Professional Series Hair Dryer, lifting hair with my fingers first on the top of head, then through the sides and back.”
• “Once the hair was dried, I used a 1½-inch curling iron to create soft, randomly textured waves. I wrapped hair around the iron for a few seconds (without clamping down,) long enough to create natural-looking waves with ends that were left a bit straighter. I pulled and loosened some of the waves to create free-er looking, mixed texture. I then finger combed the entire style to separate and define the hair and complete the look.”
• “To create a modern take on the tiara or jeweled hair combs, I applied silver gel in subtle patterns all around the hairline, then wrapped a 1½-inch plastic headband around the hairline, which was tied at the nape of the neck. I had created a jagged pattern on the headband to accent some of the details of the gown.”
• “To hold everything in place and control and lock in the contrasting waved textures, I sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong all over the hair. It’s a really workable hairspray and leaves the hair soft, lets it move “.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to find an amazing hair treatment. All you have to do is ask any hairdresser at ALS and they will simply tell you to use Anthony & Leonard’s choice for product of the month Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask. A rich creamy treatment designed especially for hair that has been tortured and damaged by heat tools, bleach and chemical relaxer.
By far one of the best treatments on our retail shelves. Enriched with Argan oil and a scent like no other product on the market, it has been glorified by top magazines and beauty editors nation wide! A true Pisces would fly all the way to Morocco for this God given treasure. But Luckily we have plenty of it in stock right here on 54th and Madison.
Anthony Leonard Salon was happy to celebrate their 2 year anniversary by hosting an amazing event in honor of Suzanne Corso and her hot new book named of course Brooklyn Story set to hit book stores on December 28,2010 . A breakfast filled with gift bags which included signed copies of her book were given to guests along with manicures and hairstyling by celebrity stylists. Mimosa’s flowed and delicious baked goods were served while some fabulous women supplied an energy that you can’t put a price on!
Many events come and go, but its always nice when a client that has supported us from our beginning , is now getting all of our support ! Cheers to a great story told by a real woman.

As invited guests of this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Herve Leger Fall 2010 Runway Show, Anthony Palermo and Leonard Zagami were able to actually enjoy the front-end as audience members of the glam show, rather than the production behind the scenes, for a change. There was an “L.A. girl” feel to the collection of party dresses that were shown, in black and neutrals, short and skin-tight. Model hair was made sleek and clean-looking in ponytails, with the help of Moroccanoil products. For Anthony and Leonard, the highlight of the show was seeing A-list celebrity Alexis Dziena, styled by our very own Mary Zingone, sitting front-row (pictured above). Leave it to Mary to give a sexy look, worthy of paparazzi appeal! Makeup by Andie Markoe-Byrne.

Due to the increasingly convincing reports that NYC will in fact be hit with a substantial amount of snow on Wednesday 2/10/2010, the 2nd Annual Pre-Valentine’s Day Event has been rescheduled. It seems that with the school closings throughout NYC, and flight cancellations, this may be the real thing (as opposed to last Saturday’s false alarm). The new date for the Moroccanoil-sponsored Event will be next Wednesday, 2/17/2010. Scroll down to our previously posted blog entry (entitled Salon Event 2/10/10) for more information on the event. For bookings and/or inquiries please call 212.750.8100 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
This Wednesday, February 10th, Anthony Leonard Salon will be holding the 2nd Annual Pre-Valentine’s Day Event. This year’s sponsor is Moroccanoil, and we will be offering complimentary conditioning treatments and adorable travel sets for your winter travels and/or hotel stays. Patricia Magro, national makeup artist for Laura Mercier, will be here offering makeup consultations and touch-up applications. Aside from all that good beauty stuff, we will also have happy-hour from 4pm – 7pm, with refreshments, making the event even warmer and fuzzier than it is to begin with! Join us! But, plan ahead and book your treatment to keep things running smoothly please! 212.750.8100 or email@example.com.
