Renee Callender

about Us

Thank you for visiting Renee's Hair Designs of New York.

I have found a profession that I love and a purpose that really matters to me: Helping people find confidence in themselves with their hair.  

How a person's hair looks has a lot to do with how they feel. Whether it's going in a date, meeting someone for the first time, a job interview or a special event - their hair is often the first thing that is noticed . 

When I finish a clients hair, I can literally see and feel their sense of self has transformed before my eyes. This brings me great joy!


My passion for hair began when I had my first child at 16 year old. She was almost bald and people kept asking me if she was a boy! I decided then I would learn how to grow and style her hair. I invested in myself and put myself through Cosmetology School.  


Through the years,  I continued my education and after decades of experience I became a Master Hair Weaver and Braider. I've had the pleasure of working with Heidi Klum, Axl Rose, Vivica A Fox and Coco Austin.


In 1999 I established Renee's Hair Designs. My partner & daughter Afi Callender. Afi Callender is a licensed stylist, esthetician and weaveologist. 


Our current clientele includes legal, medical and educational professionals.

We look forward to providing you with world class service.
