Let the light
inside you
shine through the strands of
your hair.


Filament Hair Salon opened in June 2015 and is located on a tree-lined, serene street in New York City’s legendary East Village.  In this new venture we were inspired to create a unique, intimate space where you can unwind and shine.

After many years in salons in the neighborhood, Alexandra and Seiji have earned the trust and respect of a diverse clientele through their commitment and passion for elevating beauty and style.  We look forward to meeting you and letting the light inside you come out through the strands of your hair.
