Established in 2013.
High above Manhattan, on the 21st floor of the 5-star Peninsula New York, renowned hair stylist Vu Nguyen opened his first salon. With sweeping views over Central Park and Fifth Avenue, VU HAIR represents the vision of its owner. Vu envisaged a salon that feels less like a salon, and more like a home. A place where clients could step out of their fast-paced day and into a beautiful environment created for escapism and pleasure.
An airy, 750 square foot space flooded with natural light sets the stage for an unforgettable experience. Constructed from wood, marble, steel, and cement, the salon features breathtaking views over the Park and a reception area with a flat screen TV playing vintage films. Each work station is equipped with an iPad and an iPhone charger so clients can listen to music, catch up on their emails, or read magazines electronically, all while getting their treatments.
Meet the Business Owner
Vu Nguyen, the salon’s owner, has been carefully cultivating his talent over the course of the last eighteen years — centered in New York City on legendary Fifth Avenue. His formal training began under the care of Frederic Fekkai, initially as his assistant, where he spent almost seven years. In addition, Vu has garnered valuable experience contributing to numerous runway shows for top fashion designers such as Diane Von Furstenberg, John Varvatos, Valentino and Chanel.
During his tenure at Fekkai, Vu traveled extensively around the US which gave him the opportunity to observe the best aspects of his chosen profession and to refine his vision. His experience, education, and his growing reputation as one of New York City’s most talented professionals.
