Rodolfo Valentin is such a blessing!. My friend highly recommended him for hair color but it came out way beyond anything I could have expected. In my opinion hair colorists are like plastic surgeons, the best hair colorist is the one that creates colors that seems natural----like your own--- my blond highlights are amazing and I could not be happier. Five stars for Rodolfo Valentin, my hair has never looked so beautiful. Rodolfo Valentin is a clear example of professional self-discipline.

Sofia's Hair For Health Foundation

Rodolfo Valentin is an artistic genius and a true gentleman. He has magical hands, beautiful vision, and a heart made of gold. After significant research, I contacted Rodolfo last month to donate my long hair for Sofia's Hair For Health Foundation, Rodolfo's charity that provides wigs for individuals facing hair loss due to cancer treatment. Rodolfo not only absorbs the costs (including the haircut for the individual donating hair), but also makes the wigs himself. Rodolfo gave me a brilliant haircut -- the cut is young, fresh, current, and easy (it takes me less than 5 minutes to do my hair). Also, I've been told that I look younger, and my hair has grown in nicely over the past month -- a testament to Rodolfo's expertise. Rodolfo, thank you for your artistry and kindness! -- M. Lobel

I was eternally searching for fine hair solutions. With Rodolfo Valentin hair extensions technique “The Hair infusion”, I finally found a thinning hair solution,and he was capable not only to lengthen my hair, but also fashion thrilling and trendy styles without damaging my own hair. I know that many women experience from having less and less hair because the hair breaks, gets thinner, or even falls out and leaves bald spots like I had before the Hair infusion, I was emotionally susceptible and unattractive. My biggest dream was a full and healthy head of hair.The hair infusion by Rodolfo Valentin is in my opinion, the most natural and long-lasting process to give fine and thinning hair body and volume.The addition procedure of the Hair Infusion is totally placid and non-damaging, wearing it feels just like one's own hair, without any remarkable routine limitations. The extra volume looks entirely normal and can't be distinguished from my original own hair. Rodolfo I will be your most loyal client and I am grateful to you for bring out my inner splendor.

I went to Rudolfo after years and years of highlighting my hair and growing it out. My hair would not grow. It was shoulder length and severly damaged. I decided to do infusions. I was sceptical at first but once they were put in they made me look like a totally different person. The hair looks completly natural and you cannot tell where my hair ends and infusion begin. I am totally pleased with the job he has done!

New location will be at 694 Madison Avenue. I follow him up to the end of the world anyway. He is really the best in new york, for hair color, haircuts, hairstyles, hair extensions,also a great charismatic person, sweet and cute. Last week I got the best haircut I have ever received, paying almost the half of the others. Next to me was the countess LuAnn de Lesseps and the Princess Maria Beatriz de Saboya, very friendly! congratulations Rodolfo, you are the shinning star of Madison Avenue!

In these hard monetary era, what a enjoyment it is to come across a hairdresser that can link both of these necessities.I can really declare that Citysearch came through for me once more...Thank you Citysearch, Rodolfo Valentin, right in the heart of the Madison Avenue glamour, did incredible job on my haircut & style and I only paid the half that the others super stars will charge . Great haircuts, and, hair color, I came to him with anxiety that was all messed up from an dreadful job that this other salon did on my hair and charged me almost twice than Rodolfo. His expertise is unlimited and he completely restored it to its healthy state, and better!! He is extremely first-class at what he does, and my hair never seem better, and is in much better state as well. His prices are very reasonable to begin with for the quality job he does and I will be able to afford his beauty salon more often, I am very pleased.... And want everyone else to know what a amazing discover he is. If your reading this, think yourself fortunate to have found him, I know I am.

A really extraordinary haircut Hair at Rodolfo Valentin chic salon is an experience. The greeting receptionist is helpful and affable. The service is individual and everyone there makes certain you are content whether you want a coffee, a glass of water or a snack. I would recommend my stylist –Claudio , he listened to what I wanted and he delivered! I also noticed that Rodolfo Valentin makes sure that every service is done up to his standards, and himself watches every client who walks in; he even came over to my hair stylist and discussed with him about my hair. This is the best haircut I’ve had in years!

It is all Jessica Simpson responsibility. There is just no way the beautiful pop start would be where she is today if it were not for her hair extensions.Behind closed doors I am jealous of Simpson's extensions and the tremendous interest they acquire, so when I got the opportunity to try Rodolfo Valentin famous trademarked Hair Infusion extensions technique I did not vacillate. In 45 minutes,versus the eight hours that other hair extensions usually takes,he attached more than three dozen strips of real hair to my own hair. By the end I have a head of hair even Victoria Beckham would be pleased to toss around for a while. Unlike other hair extensions, mine are eco-friendly,meaning I can reuse them at the bargain price of $500. saving thousands of dollars.The master of masters hair designers Rodolfo Valentin enthusiastically told me that I will love them forever.. He was right. As soon as I left his salon, walking back down Madison, I was moving backward and forward my new supermodel tresses over my shoulders with pleasure and noticed many admiring glances. It makes me feel no more envy of Jessica Simpson.

Best cancer wigs, the answer is Rodolfo Valentin

Best cancer wigs? : The answer is Rodolfo Valentin the designer of the first cranial hair prosthesis in the world. His high quality wigs are designed especially for cancer patients. I could not afford the French wig, but I was able to afford the Vacuum wig instead, the new design that makes easier to have an alternative to the expensive hair cranial prosthesis, (anyway if I could not afford none, I know Rodolfo will probably approved me to have a free wig through his Sofia’s hair for health), his organization created in memory of his mother, a breast cancer patient. Rodolfo is a sweet heart and (we) cancer patients are priority in his daily agenda. I paid 1800 dollars, a bargain!!!. These wigs are top quality!. As a matter of fact, Rodolfo Valentin offers everything any woman who is losing hair might want to consider, including small hair additions to any wrap, scarves, turbans (thanks to the hair coming out from the turban I was able to hold my dignity with my husband at bed time. Thank you a million Rodolfo, you really are an angel guard. I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER!!
