Meet Our Artists

Vu Hair New York has a team of highly skilled and talented artists, ready to take your new style and image to the next level. Take a look at our team profiles below.


Vu's talent has been carefully cultivated over the course of the last eighteen years - centered in New York City on the legendary Fifth Avenue. His formal training began under the care of Mr. Frederic Fekkai, as his assistant, lasting nearly six years before he felt he was ready to branch out on his own - and make a name for himself. During his tenure as a hair stylist, Vu was able to garner valuable experience as he contributed to numerous runway shows for top fashion designers such as: Diane Von Furstenberg, John Varatos, Valentino and Chanel. In addition to being behind the scenes of the top fashion houses, Vu worked as a personal hair stylist to Julie Chan and Les Moonves from CBS, as well as Glen Ballie and Graydon Carter - editors of Vanity Fair.

For years, Vu often found himself on the road, traveling to numerous destinations in the US as a representative for various products, but also refining his vision and compiling an internal view of the way his industry was composed. Vu's values and creative views are based on the philosophy that a hair style can be the foundation for greatness in any individual. It was these experiences and education as well as his personal maturation as a stylist that allowed him to formulate and devise the plan for his newest venture, his own salon - high atop the same Fifth Avenue where he first got his start.
