Dean Melchiorre

Scissors in hand, he’s a master stylist. After hours, he’s a master teacher. In the world of high-end salons serving clients of every age, those who know exactly want they want and those who want the next big trend, he is a visionary.

dé-al salon founder, Dean Melchiorre has had a passion for creating styles that reflect and enhance a person’s personality, needs and desired image since, as a teenager, he created new hairstyles for movie stars in his head.

By the time he was 24, Dean was making his mark and his reputation in respected salons, and by the age of 29, his talent and his business sense led to the opening of dé-al with his brother Al. He has never looked back, only forward, expanding his expertise with research and development that led to his own customizable product line.

Dean’s seemingly simple philosophy: Hire and train the best, and cater unfailingly to customer needs.
He has made the modern, welcoming salon on the corner of Middle Neck Road and Maple Drive in Great Neck, NY, the go-to place for those who live down the block, in the city, and in neighboring states.
