Welcome to DAVID ALAN designs ...



For almost a decade, I have been going to David for both my cut and color. I always feel so much better leaving the salon because David takes the time and has the talent to deliver a consistently flattering haircut and totally natural looking color...he is that good! But just as important as the quality of his cut and color, David and his irrepressible spirit makes the entire encounter a true delight and a restorative experience. That's what I call a full service hairstylist! David is simply the best.

I have known David Alan for more than 25 years and will follow him wherever he cuts and colors hair! I currently drive 45 minutes to get my haircuts and will continue to go wherever he goes. Not only is he an excellent stylist, but he is professional, reliable, and trustworthy. When I'm sitting in David's chair, he gives me his full attention and listens to my questions and concerns. I look forward to my appointments with David because he is a wonderful person to be around.

I have been a client of David's for twenty years. He is a true artist when it comes to color. He knows exactly how to treat my hair and has kept me up to date as trends and my age have changed. He is a master at cutting hair and again keeps me on trend. David is happy to offer advice and work with you on ideas for what may or may not work for your hair type. He is very good at recommending product to use at home and teaching you tips to help you keep your style from visit to visit. I never feel better than when I leave his chair with a perfect blow dry!

My Journey with David ... 1989 to now ... 13 Exits on I-95. Who actually gets on I-95 North these days and says "I've just got to visit the next exit ramp because the wonders grow with each increment"? No one. Not a one. But I did just that over the years in search of the wonder that David Gonzales works with my hair. I've followed him on his journey from Exits 3, 7, 10, and 12. Now I will follow him to Exit 17, to a beautiful town called Westport. When it comes to "cut and color", David has few peers (none close by). He has the gift of visualizing shape and color -- and the art of sharing that vision and getting you to imagine a refreshed you. Unsolicited compliments pour in on "the look" from friends and strangers. David sees me at 7:00 in the morning or 7:30 in the evening. With David, you begin as a client and wind up a friend. My daughter now also feels the pull of the northbound exits. By the way, David is also a mensch.
