The goal of each hair-extension service at Armando Cassano Hair Studio is to have clients leave looking like they don’t have extensions at all. Of course, hair will look fuller and longer, but it will also look natural thanks to So.Cap. Original products. These carefully selected, natural-hair extensions are pieced together so that strands fall facing the same direction and look like real hair. In fact, all of the services at Armando Cassano are this meticulous, thanks to detail-oriented staffers who apply makeup, cut hair, brush on new hair colors, and straighten strands with Brazilian keratin treatments. The staff also offers bridal-beauty packages, which, along with pampering on the big day, include makeup and hair tests and root touch-ups.

The shop also welcomes little gentlemen to sit in its swivel stools for pint-sized haircuts or to sit in meditative silence until their first mustaches appear.

The space echoes the staff's aesthetic: it's all modern abstract art and minimalist design, a hip spot so encouraging of transformation that you might be tempted to dye the hair on your arm tattoo.
