Simone Mangano is a rare breed of New Yorker, born and raised in the west village. From an early age Simone showed a keen eye for style and color, which she first parlayed into an internship at the Washington Center for the performing arts in Olympia, WA.
After exploring every department in the theater Simone was hungry for formal training and enrolled in beauty school. She attended the prestigious Aveda Institute in Soho and went on to Advanced Education at Vidal Sassoon and Davines Color.
Simone landed a coveted apprenticeship with Marie Robinson at Sally Hershberger Downtown and began working as a colorist and educator at Woodley and Bunny in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Simone then joined the team at Serge Normant at John Freida where she honed her platinum and color correction skills. At John Frieda she was exposed to some of the greatest talent in the industry including Creative Director Harry Josh.
Today Simone's talent and hard work has earned her a celebrity client roster including: Taylor Schilling, Karolina Kurkova, Jessica Stam, Piper Perabo, Matthew Modine, Josh Hartnett, Ellie Goulding, Micheal Imperioli, Kristin Wiig, Jennifer Ferrin, and Joan Jett. She has also worked on editorial shoots and international ad campaigns.
