Whenever I need my hair cut, colored, or treated I always rely on Danelle and the Vanity Studios team to get it done. I have been a loyal client of Danelle’s for 10 years and recommend her for all your hair care needs. The VS team is super stylish, talented, and always ready to provide professional service for a great, affordable price! Danelle caters to your every hair styling need and make you feel right at home! After every Vanity Studios appointment, I leave the salon feeling beautiful and confident — NEVER disappointed. And now, I am even commissioning Danelle’s amazing talents for my wedding! Trust me when I say there is no better option - choose Vanity Studios.

I absolutely love this place! It took me many years to not only find the right person but the right salon. Queen and Danelle are the best stylists. They are professional and knowledgeable of what is best for your hair.  I have used them for my engagement and wedding photos. When I leave the salon I feel so beautiful and pampered.

I moved from NYC a few years ago where I had been going to see an amazing stylist for years but unfortunately the commute was too challenging back and forth. I tried a few places locally and was searching  for a salon that could match both the services I was used to (styling, cut, color etc.) and also great customer service, modern and clean environment. Vanity Studio was the perfect fit! I am always happy with my hair and as a business woman with a challenging schedule - they always do what they can to fit me in! FYI - one of the co-owners (Shaqueen) is my stylist and she’s AMAZING! All other stylist are great as well and lots of variety based on hair type.
