About Oscar Blandi

Oscar has become a household name, not only in New York City, but throughout the world for the brand he has built. Leaving Italy more than 20 years ago, Oscar opened his first salon within the iconic New York Landmark, The Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue. As Oscar’s business continued to grow exponentially, he eventually expanded the salon to its current location at 545 Madison Avenue; a salon with over 11,000 square feet, making it the largest salon in New York City.

Oscar is a master of his craft, and has become widely known for his ability to perfect each client’s specific goal. He continues to style some of the most reputable celebrity clientele for red carpet looks, talk shows and magazine shoots. Clientele include Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Naomi Watts, Robin Wright, Vanessa Hudgens and Jimmy Fallon among others.

Erika Wightman has been working in the color department at the Oscar Blandi Salon for 9 years. After years of working on her own clientele and mentoring many of the assistants at the salon, she decided to branch into teaching haircolor with some of today's top color brands. Erika has worked for both Wella and L'Oreal as an educator over the last several years and is now focusing on bringing new skill sets to hairdressers of all backgrounds and experience levels.
