Wonderland Beauty Parlor — 418 West 13th Street

Michael Angelo’s Wonderland Beauty Parlor is true to its name.

As David Benjamin, the salon’s general manager explained, “if you get to know Michael, it all makes sense.” Michael opened the salon in 2005, hoping to bring the Meatpacking District’s authenticity to life in the parlor. “I don’t want people to take themselves too seriously,” Michael said.
