I had just moved to Philadelphia and I happened to hear about David at Meringue. I needed someone to cut my hair and I was PLEASANTLY surprised!! This was the best haircut I had ever had. Really! He took time to talk to me and listen to what I wanted. And, he also made good suggestions based on my hair type. I've been toying with wanting to color my hair (cover the grays) and he suggested a "stain." I trust him now and let him stain my hair 2 weeks before my wedding. He did not disappoint and I am COMPLETELY satisfied with my hair and the job he does! As a bonus, he has his own line of products and I use the shampoo, conditioner and hair straightener. All are wonderful and smell nice. Give David a try. He's the greatest hairstylist I've ever had!

I live a block away from Meringue and tried David out. To start ,he put me at ease and knew just what to do. The results were the best high lights and hair cut I have ever had. All of my friends will be going to David from now on.

I meant to write this review a while ago. Last month I was there. David had been making me a blond for a year and it looked amazing. But I am getting married and I wanted to look more like myself so he took me back to brown. He spent all day on my hair. He did highlights and low lights, cut, dried, and straightened my unruly curly hair. He took his time. Now of course we goofed around a little because he might just be the funniest man alive. I had no where to go. I come from Delaware to see him. My point is he took his time, he made sure it looked good. He didnt rush me out to get ready for another client. I am glad to have had the time to spend with him cause he will make you laugh the whole time you are there. I love how he makes me look and I like going there to see him. I have seen him more often in the last year then some of my family and for that reason I am inviting him to my wedding. I know the chances of me stealing him away for a whole saturday may not be possible. But I am extending the invitation because he is practically like family to me now. And you will realize that when you see him too. He takes his time and he cares about his work and his clients. When I tell you there is no better stylist in the universe I am not exaggerating. You will find out for yourself.

Lets see I have been following David around for about 7 years now, I am so happy he now has his own place! He is extremely talented its well worth the ride for me from South Jersey. NOBODY cuts my hair like David can. He is a magician/artist with a razor. Thats right he uses a scissors but also takes his time and meticulously uses a razor on my hair and what a difference it makes.

I almost hate writting this great, well deserved review in fear he may not have time for me when I call last minute as I usually do. His salon is small, he is pretty much a one man show but like that little tiny restaurant you discovered that has an incredible chef owner this place is great. Highly reccomend to anybody consider going. David rules!

This is truly the best salon for haircuts. They take their time and are very meticulous; I never feel rushed. I always receive a consultation before a service is performed and if I am not sure of what I want, they give me suggestions on what would look best. They keep up with the lastest trends in hairstyling and always has suggestions for me. The salon is very quaint, very clean, and everyone is friendly and courteous. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

It's taken me awhile to figure what I want to say,because there is so little space. From the moment I made my appointment ,David made me feel relaxed and excited about my makeover. David did not fail to live up to the reviews.I watched this artist take my plain straight hair and make it into something special. The cut even made my face look thinner---WOW! I do want to say that I watched David agonize over a bad review that was bogus.Nothing in that review is remotely true.David is a very caring person and a professional. He stands by his work and would not let me leave till he felt it was perfect.Although he had many customers there he takes his time to make you look your best . It is sad he lost one customer because of the bogus review. My fiance loved my cut and highlights and said it makes me look terrfic.Thank You David. I will be back again.

My wife and I have been seeing David for 17 years now. For the last 15 of those years we did not live in Philadelphia. We have traveled to Philadelphia from Washington, D.C. and, for the past 10 years, from New York City just to get our hair done. It's kind of a running joke with my friends: "Can't you find somebody who can cut hair in NEW YORK CITY?!!" Not someone as good as David. In fact, in a pinch I've gone to a highly reputable salon in NYC (Bumble & bumble), and they still were not as good as David's.

Naturally, when you travel 120 miles to get a haircut, you don't always get one as often as you should. But I know that a haircut from David will grow out wonderfully and still look great after even three months. (I have received compliments on a haircut a month after getting it!)

Pros: Very skilled at cutting hair to grow out well

Cons: Bad jokes

The last review was a bogus review. I David Willey put 100% into every person. If someone is not happy, I stand behind all of my work, refunds anytime. I never never use the term rock star when cutting a womens hair. I have a photographic memory and not one of my clients has ever used the term classic. I have another bogus review with the same rhetoric about making her look like a rockstar. I also don't take new clients unless they come recommended by old loyal clients so I know who the new clients are. Plus, I always do follow ups on anyone new. My advice to people that have nothing better to do with their idle time is do not trash other human beings. Karma is a powerful thing. I work extra hard at trying to please everyone. A task that would be impossible for anyone. Miss phillylady use a real name and call the salon for a refund if you exist. 215 735-7303

I am 26 and quite stylish and fashionable. I love to try new things, but I have always considered myself one of classic taste when it comes to haircuts. I used the word classic with David the last time I was in his salon, and I came out looking looking like a 45 year old hermit. I have pretty easy hair, but he gave me a terribly boring cut that was uneven and actually different lengths on each side. It was so bad that I wore my hair up for three months until it grew out and could go to another stylist. Of course he told me I looked like a supermodel and rockstar. I would never recommend David or Meringue but have fortunately found a stylist I do love in center city.

Just wanted to let all those people who are searching for an amazing stylist know where to go - Meringue!!! David is great. My first experience with him was at Soma, and after it closed I had to follow him. He does such a wonderful highlight and cut, I can't imagine going anywhere else. He colors so close to the scalp and the color is always perfect. He now has his own line of products too, which I can't wait to try!! Go find out for yourself - I know you won't be disappointed.

Then being treated like I was white trash at the front desk,I decided I had had all I could take .i went online and read the reviews of Meringue.What a delight to find one hairdresser the owner doing three people at once.All of the women were singing praise of David while he gave a quick smile as he continued working at a pace I could not believe.We talked about my hair issues and he went straight to work. He did not let me see my new color and haircut till the last strand was dry. It was the best my hair has ever looked. Try him ,he seems to have it going on all the way.I also bought his do goo hair product mixed with the atomic straightning balm and my hair is moving all day and every day.

My mom has used David at Meringue a few times. Has raved about he has turned her lifeless hair around for the better believe me.My hair was dry and burned out from hairdressers putting bleach on the hair that already had been lightened. David not only made my fine damaged hair feel like silk and full of life and body. But the results so astounding among my friends and people on the street ,has been remarkable.Every day people keep telling me how fantastic and great my hair looks.

If you want inventive well thought out hair styling that fits you to a T. David Willey is the finest hairdresser at his craft. At this point of going to him for too many years to think of ,I can say he does better then anyone else ,that I have tried. I have had the so called best in New York City and they dont hold a candle to the marvel magic of this guy. The new salon is quite different to all the salons in the city. As the it is more then the boring cookie cutter modern salons that litter the city. A mini museum of art and taste.VERY RELAXING ! Try him ,but I have been informed he only takes new clients after a consultation.

I went to see David today for my curly hair.. the weather is getting so humid out now and it only makes my hair frizzy and dry. David not only gave it a complementing cut but also has his own line of products which includes a product called atomic straightening balm. He blew my hair straight how I like it and it completely smooth, no frizz. I have never been to a hair dresser who could get it this straight and sleek. If David knows how to work with my hair he can work with anyones!! I wish could post a picture. His product also is the best salon product I have used yet. Thank you David!

Pros: Best stylist and products

.

Meringue is the most unique salons that I have ever been to. To start it has such charm and is so cozy .I love the decor which David the owner happened to do himself. The salon does not have any drama or crazy hairdressesr running around .David is the only one doing hair . He does have a beautiful helper named Wanda .She is so nice, helping keep the place under control.To start with I have thick curly hair that no one ever is able to make look like anything other then a big frizzball. David not only made it look soft and give me curls that look amazing even when I wake up,but he made it look longer then when I came in. Every women knows how curly hair shrinks in length when even a little is trimmed . My hair looks longer [wow]! David also has his own line of products that are not some generic junk but very high end . The curl cream called curl patrol is the best product I have ever used for my curls . It is not sticky or tacky ,it leaves my hair soft and wonderful. The shampoo and conditioner are fantastic too.

Pros: Best curly haircut

Cons: call before you come to make sure he is running on time

David has been doing magic on me and my friends for about three years . He is one to give a hair cut that goes with your personality ,face ,skin tone,clothing style and your body .When I visit him I can be sure that I get the most detailed color and haircut on my fine limp hair .A laugh is something that comes about every minute with David.,he has a very witty dry candor that I find more then amusing.I wish I could see him more then every two months, but he gets the color so natural that it lasts twice as long as the highlights i have gotten in the past.The highlights are right to the root.David has some self developed method that no one else does. He also just does the roots and does not put the color on the hair that has been colored before. I can honestly say this is the first time I have been able to grow my hair long . There is no breakage or damage on my hair anymore. I just had a friend call for a appointment and he does a consult before he will take you as a client. . So I guess it is getting hard to get a appointment with him.

David has been doing magic on me and my friends for about three years . He is one to give a hair cut that goes with your personality ,face ,skin tone,clothing style and your body .When I visit him I can be sure that I get the most detailed color and haircut on my fine limp hair .A laugh is something that comes about every minute with David.,he has a very witty dry candor that I find more then amusing.I wish I could see him more then every two months, but he gets the color so natural that it lasts twice as long as the highlights i have gotten in the past.The highlights are right to the root.David has some self developed method that no one else does.

Pros: The best haircut and highlights

Cons: getting hard to get a appointment

.

David has been doing my hair for so many years I dont want to count.He gets my highlights right to the root and gets the haircut perfect every time. People ask me just about every day who does it. The only problem is he does not take new clients to often ,so it is hard for me to recommend him. I just thought I should leave a review.Thank you David.

I went to see David for the first time and I walked out with the sexiest hair and not only have received more compliments than ever but have been asked out by the hottest guys one after another. David is the best as well because he works with my crazy schedule. I pick up alot of shifts at my jobs and barely have time to do things I need. He always finds time to squeeze me in. HES THE BEST!

I discovered Meringue 2 months ago when I was in desperate need of a miracle for my hair, which had been neglected for 6 months, due to my dread of returning to unskilled 'hair stylists', who had previously degraded the condition and shape of my hair.

I was at an all time bad hair day low, when I arrived for my appointment with David Willey, about whom I had read such wonderful things, and was immediately struck by how gracious he was, and how capably he assessed my problem.

I would recommend David to anyone, he is absolutely the best and most creative hairdresser anyone could wish for. I have just been back for my second 8 weekly trim and color, relaxed in the chair and read magazines without any concerns, as he worked on my hair, giving me highlights and nuances in the custom color we had worked out together; he is a perfectionist.

Completely flexible, nothing is too much trouble for David, it all happens so smoothly that the time flies, he is a true professional who has my respect and my thanks. Usually an appointment booking is not too delayed, but if you need to wait a little for a date, don't rush off elsewhere because you will be missing out on the best cut / color you could ever have.

Just tried David for the first time, as a friend said it was the way to go. I could not be happier. The color of the high lights are so real i can not believe that this is my hair. I had been getting more and more depressed every time I my got hair done from my former hairdresser of many years.It had been lacking in detail for so long that I just got use to looking bland. David at Meringue is the guy I will use from now on. PERFECT.You will not go wrong. I also bought his atomic straighting balm ,AMAZING, it is not sticky and does not feel like I have any product in my hair.It is wonderful!

I have been traveling for seven years to have David color and cut my hair. He is on top of changing me to the next look that you dont see on other people for three years .He is ahead of the current styles.My friends also would never let anyone but David do there hair. His new exclusive little salon is not like the others . Decorated with charm and taste. He is also someone I trust for the best new places to dine, and what new music listen to. Also he has good sense about what current movies to see.I dont know why the phone number is not on city search but here it is 215-735-7307.

I just moved to Philly and needed a haircut so bad. I have passed Meringue on my way to work and it looked busy every time. I read the reviews and said why not. Im glad I did .Not only was the cut just like the picture that I brought in,but much better. David is the only stylist i will let do my hair from now on . He was down to earth ,he listened and made me feel very comfortable. i would recommend David to anyone looking for the extra mile that other stylists dont go for.

Pros: best stylist

Cons: none

I've only been going to David and Meringue for the past several months and I have not been disappointed. His expertise is quite evident after every haircut I have gotten there. He has been a welcome addition to the neighborhood. I look forward to frequenting Meringue for many months and years to come.

Pros: Hip Environment (great music always playing), Excellent Quality of Work

Cons: None

David Wiley is the only person who has cut my hair in the 24 years that I have lived in Philly. He knows my hiar, can look at photos I bring in with new suggestions and can tell me whether those cuts will work on my hair. He can also look at the photos I bring and create a perfect cut just for me. If you're looking for someone new to cut your hair, give David a try.

My wife has been getting her hair done by David for over 15 years. She convinced me to start going to him after we got married (he did her hair for the wedding, too). We've been such happy customers that we drive the 50+ miles one way from Princeton, rather than risk finding someone local. David's work is consistently superb and I've never left his place dissatisfied. I recommend the quality of his work without reservation. The prices, compared to a typical barber, are premium. I imagine they are comparable to most salons in downtown Philly, however. That's just part of the territory. Then again, you get what you pay for. It's one minor luxury my wife and I afford ourselves and it's worth it to never have to worry that I'll come out with a hatchet job that I have to live with for the next 2 months (which has happened in other places).

I have been driving past Meringue for several months now, and have always been so curious because the salon looks so inviting from the outside. Because I already had a stylist, I didn't call until recently when my stylist permanently relocated to NY. Well, it was a terrific decision to choose Meringue. Not only was the receptionist extremely friendly, but she was also extremely helpful and accommodating: with very little notice, she fit me into that evening's schedule. This I loved because it's hard to get a last minute, let alone evening appointment. Now, this is not to say Meringue isn't busy, because it is--there were several people there upon my arrival and several there when I left.
As for David, he was terrific. He was very warm and welcoming--I felt like I had stepped into someone's living room, yet it was very professional, but not pretentious at all, like many center city salons. And, most importantly, my hair cut is terrific! It fits my face, head shape and age, and it is super easy for me to style at home (very important)!! This is a fabulous cut that I will return for again and again! I really appreciate David and his staff for making my experience so wonderful!

I have been going to David Willey for my hair needs for 8 years now. I am an average working woman but look for the best with my hair. He is awesome. I first went to him after being in a very bad car accident which severed my scalp. It was tender and unsightly. He worked with me to overcome the problems that occurred because of this. I have become a loyal client and would not change. I have gone to salons in center city Phila. over the past 30 years. Center City Phila. has the most proficient hairdressers and David is the best.
