David gives the best haircut. When I leave the salon, my hair looks great, but you cannot even tell that it was cut. I never have to wait weeks for it to look good. David does not cut it too short. He also listens to what you want him to do. I have been to many hairdressers, but David is the best. Bobbi C

Having just moved to Philly, I was nervous about getting a new hairdresser. After seeing all the 5-star reviews on here, I decided to try Meringue and I'm glad I did! It was a great experience. David is very friendly, knowledgeable, and talented and I got a fierce style out of it too. Not even that expensive compared to other upscale salons. I will definitely be back!

David really knows what he's doing. No BS, no pretentiousness, just great work. The salon is simple and fun. My wife and I have both been going to David for years, first at other shops and now in his own place. Highly recommended.

Pros: Great haircuts, every time.

David knows what he is doing. It is very hard to find a stylist who can take your hair and just know what to do. I would recommend Meringue to anyone who is in need of a haircut or colour. David's colour is always perfect! I am incredibly picky. He is also an expert at correcting botch colour jobs by amateur stylists. Go and see him!

I recently found David through the overwhelming reviews at City Search. I am very pleased and rarely change sytlists after finding someone I trust. I took a chance on David and am very glad I did. He made my fine hair look fuller with a great cut and the color her chose was perfect. Great job David!

I've been going to David for almost 8 years and he always listens to what I want, makes great recommendations and I never feel like I get stuck in a "rut" with my look. He just gave me the best cut using a style he just learned at a expo hosted by Bumble and Bumble salon in NYC.

I needed a new colorist after moving from D.C., but dragged my feet because I was afraid I couldn't find someone I liked as well as my Bethesda hairdresser. Decided to try David Willey at Meringue near my house, and what a find he was! He restored my hair to its true brown color and added subtle blond highlights.

My boyfriend introduced me to David and Merengue Salon. It is fabulous! David always makes himself available even when I need to come in last minute. His cut and color is superb! No one gets closer to the roots than David :) And it's always a hilarious conversation sitting in the chair. A must go - if he has room for new clients!

I've gone to David for haircuts for the past 6 months or so. I'll admit that I'm not the type to normally appreciate these things, but David not only gets me enthused, he explains his methods and approach in clear terms that highlight his experience and help me appreciate long term care. He is one of those Philly fixtures that I recommend to everyone I know, a true master of his craft.

David has been cutting my hair for over 20 years-and someone is always asking me "what a great cut-where do you go?" He just gives that edge to it that helps differentiate you from the others. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants their hair to look a step above the rest.

David has been my hairdresser/stylist for about 17 years.You will find yourself travelling for an apppointment with Dave. He is the most creative, innovative, fun to be around stylist you will ever come across. You would be making the biggest mistake if you don't give him an opportunity to make yourself look as good as possible and to have your girlfriend look more beautiful than ever. He has done some incredible things with all types of girls/women that take them to the next level in the way they see themselves, and the way others start to see them. He's got the gift. David will not only make you look at your best, you will feel that you are truly "the best". Everyone should experience what Meringue, David, and his team has to offer to everyone.

I have been following David from one salon to another for over 20 years. A few years ago, he opened his own salon, an intimate, cheery place right off of Broad Street. David knows the latest hairstyles, and also does the classics. His color always looks natural, and his highlights are the best! Once you have David do your hair, you'll never go anywhere else!

David is a haircolor genius. He solved my problem of color not staying long and gave me the best color ever. And his cuts are fantastic - they actually make the color look even better. I am a short haired blond but he does as great a job on my longer haired brunette friend.

David is very skilled with cutting, coloring, and highlighting long or short hair. He's generally very conservative in his approach, but after a short conversation and a nudge or two manages to produce a cutting edge look. I'm always being complimented on my hair by total strangers across the country asking where I had it done. He keeps up with the latest styles by continuing to take lessons from the best in New York. David is very friendly, professional, and does an outstanding job. If you want a great style, this is the salon for you.

David has been my hair stylist for years now, and for good reason. His "new" salon has been around now for over a year, and it's great, since it's cozy and not crazy, since he's the only stylist there. He treats all of his clients like VIPs, which is why he has many loyal ones who've followed him from past salons.

Also, if you need a mani or pedi or waxing, Vanessa is there inside Meringue, and she's great as well!

I have wavy hair that has a lot of body at the bottom, and if it is not cut properly it just puffs. David just knows how to cut it so I can easily take care of it and style it in more than one way. Oh, did I mention he is a MASTER with color!!!! David always goes that extra step to make sure you are happy. I have been a client of his for more than five years and I can't say enough about his talent and concern for his clients. All I can say is give him a try, you will walk away very satisfied and feeling wonderful!

They say the difference between a good restaurant versus an exceptional one, is the latter's talent for turning the ordinary act of eating a meal into a creative and memorable "experience". The same concept can be applied to David at Meringue Salon! Any reservations I had on changing to a new stylist or salon as I first walked through the door, faded very quickly. Through his talent, warm sense of humor, and industry knowledge, David seems to have mastered a truly successful formula for the ideal salon......... delicately balancing a customers desire to want the "top" professional salon service, without the high prices, attitude, and fast paced drama. As a result, I not only got the best cut and color I ever had (that still looked great through the extra months I was letting my hair grow out) but I also got to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing environment with a stylist whose undivided attention, and thoughtful suggestions, turned what is usually a routine trip to the hairdresser's.............. into the ultimate salon "experience".

I've been following David for 8 and 1/2 years now for one simple reason...he gives the absolute best haircut. Now that I live in the suburbs, I still go downtown to Meringue for the best cut. It's fun, it's easy and it's nice to know that David has a home at Meringue, his own salon.

You always receive personal care and he takes the time to listen and cut your hair the way you want.

If you don't try it, you'll be making a huge mistake.

I used to go to David years ago when he was working at another salon. For some inexplicable reason I stopped going there...for quite a few years , I might add. Then a new ,tiny,charming salon opened right in my neighborhood! I made an appointment and when I walked in It was David! He remembered me right away! He said" you used to be a redhead" (at the time, I was sort of pathetically some where between red and blond). Well, long story short...He fixed my hair perfectly. He is an absolute master with hair color and highlights.You won't find any better! Not to mention the artistry he brings to hair cutting as well.He is a down to earth; easy to talk to; great guy! I always walk out pleased with my look. Oh, and the salon is crazy cool...packed with vintage toys and interesting art.

I read the preceeding glowing reviews of David and his fabulous new salon. Words like dedicated, original, intimate,miracle and many other wonderful compliments appear, so their is not much else for me to say except longevity. David began cutting my hair 26 yrs ago this June and except for a momentary loss of judgement, has been the only one to do so the entire time. This has given me a very long term perspective on this man laboring not only on my head, but on many others. I've witness him transform the hair on countless women into styles and colors nobody would have imagined with the utmost grace and professionalism. David is a real pro who to this day will take hair cutting and styling lessons to stay on top of his profession and as he says cutting edge. Now as the only stylist in his own salon the total experience is within his control, which he makes a pleasant experience for each and every client from beginning until you walk out the door. David has chosen the best manicurist in town Vanessa to be part of his fabulous salon. Go see David at Meringue for whatever your hairstyling needs are, you deserve the best.

I was looking for a sassy haircut for my very curly hair. I have had a hard time finding a hairdresser who knows how to cut curly hair. David did. I sat down in his chair and he asked me what I wanted. I wasn't really sure except that I didn't want a super short haircut. I explained to him that I wanted a style that would look good curly and blown out. He studied my hair and made a suggestion. He spent an hour with me-unheard of in this day and age!! He also had a vision of how he wanted my hair to look 6 months from now. I wanted my hair blown out ,but I could tell from looking at how my curls reacted after he cut it that it was going to look very cute when it was left natural. He is very friendly , professional and interesting-no drama and no attitude here!. His shop is adorable and warm.

The only difficult part about the whole experience at Meringue was getting there. It was pretty late on Friday and Dave did decide to accomodate me.

And I can assure you everything else was smooth sailing after that. Its nice to get a relaxing traditional haircut, without any sort buzzing noises to deafen you. the best thing is that 3 weeks later and the haircut looks good. The devil must really be in the details and David is a master of just that.

The most laudable thing I can say is that he makes you feel right at home from the minute you walk in for the first time. That truly becomes his greatest feat.

Before i got married, my fiance sent me to David to guarantee a great haircut for our wedding day. That was 5 years ago and I've followed David from salon to salon. My cut is perfect everytime and it grows out even better than other cuts I've had. Definitely recommend him.

I have lived in Philadelphia for the last several years during which I searched and got acquainted with its "best salons and hairdressers". In the process my experience was disappointingly poor and unhealthy. The commonly used colors and the harsh styling damaged my hair and scalp. Moreover, ignorance of hair-health and/or commercial interest further regressed a once full and strong hair. Then one lucky day, at a recommendation of a friend I discovered THE BEST SECRET OF PHILADELPHIA i.e. David Willey, working in his (intimate and beautifully original), Meringue Salon. David does not only stylize but also treats (as in those treating institutes in London or New York). His abounding talents are reflected in my hair color - the best I have ever had, my hair quality; and a head-turning cut thanks to his exceptional sense of shape and proportion. I do not remember David ever checking the time: a relentless perfectionist, he continues his detailed work until the goal is achieved, but not before he patiently listens to your wishes. For the first time I feel as an individual rather than a client! I can tell you my friends, that there is no one comparable to him. David is a master hair-artist, truly unique in Philadelphia!!!

David Willey the owner and stylist of Meringue is the best! I no longer have to travel to New York City for a great haircut and to have my hair highlighted. David is a great listener and did a wonderful job. After my highlights my hair was in fabulous condition. David is a winner, i highly recommend him.

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

Small, intimate, accommodating, friendly, no attitude. Does this sound like the place where you get your hair styled? Probably not. That's why Meringue is where you should take your hair for a break from the usual experience that rules throughout this city of mediocre hair palaces. David makes you feel at home. His personality is always the same. He makes you feel like he cares how you're gonna look when you leave Meringue. That's because he does. Really. His experience and expertise can be relied upon consistently. No one leaves unhappy. David just wouldn't allow that. I've been getting my hair styled by this man for a decade and I can't recall a cut that was not perfect. I marvel at his ability to give my hair a look that's great each time. No one does it better. Period.

Meringue is small, so unlike the majority of hair styling factories that permeate Center City Philadelphia. Here you'll get attentive, dedicated service from David Willey, the owner, who is just as nice a guy as he is a marvelous stylist. There's a terrific manicurist who also offers pedicures and complete personal grooming services. This is the place to go when you want to escape the ordinary, the over-hyped, the snob-appeal that is rampant throughout the "high-end" salons which win awards year after year. One visit to Meringue and you'll know why this tiny oasis in a sea of styling salons offers you the best value, the best cut and color, the best service, the perfect experience - when you want to look and feel your best. Go to Meringue. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Best Styling Salon in Center City

Cons: none

David Willey is one of the most experienced, intelligent, and hip hair artists in the Phila area! I have been going to him through much of his career as he toiled in the shops of others--now he has his own place, a mellow, little gem of a shop near 15th & Lombard! Never been disappointed with a cut, highlights are most natural and THE best around--never ashy, never orange, taken down to the root so they last a good, long time! David even does the hair of my husband and children with the same loving care & attention to detail. He is wicked busy, as he is a solo owner/operator, but advantage of this is that you feel like you are visiting in the home of a friend--your salon session is personal & private--no need to listen to the conversations of others, no need to tip the shampoo person, the blow-dry asst--DAVID DOES IT ALL!! Vanessa gives manicures that last a good week before the polish starts to chip (for real!), and her waxing services are meticulously (and painlessly!!!:-) performed for a price that beats the pants off of what other salons downtown would charge! I will not go anywhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

David bravely fixed a botched hair cut another less skilled stylist attempted on my hair. David brillantly fixed my bob and my hair is growing out perfectly. I went to David hoping for a miracle and that's exactly what he delivered! Thank you David!

The salon is so gorgeous filled with the best comic toys of the past. David is the only hairdresser I trust with my locks. He is a hair god. His cuts are just the most up to date I have ever seen. The color is so natural that I even think it is real and he is also fun to be around.

David Willey rocks out the most spectactular hair known to man . He talks about what you need and then you let him do it. It is that simple. I was tired of the pretentious salons in the city with the snobville attitudes and all the hype . I have been using this man for five years and would not even think of changing. It is hard to get to see him as he works some nights untill midnight . I guess the word has caught on.
