Andre J. Davis has worked as a hairstylist in the fashion and music industries for over twenty years. He is presently a hair designer, at the Julien Farel salon & spa, specializing in master hair cutting and styling, custom hair weaves, wigs, and extensions, with expertise in women’s and men’s hair restoration.
Andre was trained in haircutting and hairstyling at the Vidal Sassoon Academy. He began his career at Astor Place Haircutters, renowned for the kind of edgy, trendsetting styling that emblemized New York’s Greenwich Village in the 1990s. He went on to work for Bumble & Bumble Salon, and for the fashion and music industries, as a consultant for new artist development and a stylist for hit-makers. Andre has built a devoted private clientele who rely on his experience and keen sensitivity to hair loss. Inspired by his mother, a former opera singer and victim of a rare form of bone cancer who fought to preserve both her life and her remarkable sense of style, he takes pride in the many solutions he’s developed for persons suffering from cancer, alopecia, genetic thinning and balding, and stress related to over-processing.

Penny and Macy’s; and on the fashion runway, for designers Galliano and Victoria’s Secret, among others. He lives in New York City , and has 2 children, Ephrem and Shalom
