Born in New York City, Angelo knew at a very young age his professional passion was two-fold, hairstyling and the performing arts. Prior to having the amazing opportunity to apprentice with Benjamin Mohapi and his team Angelo had a very successful career as a professional dancer. He was classically trained at the prestigious Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City and performed on Broadway which opened the doors to traveling nationally and internationally with various Broadway productions. Additionally, he has performed with Cirque du Soleil, Justin Beiber, Zendaya and Bella Thorne, has appeared in music videos and award shows and has had the great privilege of living in Berlin, Osaka, Montreal and the Philippines for dance related work.
Working at the BENJAMIN Salon has opened the doors to assist on editorial shoots for L’Uomo Vogue, Teen Vogue, Fantastic Man, Lady Gunn magazine, music videos, and commercials for Old Navy and Lexus. He has had the opportunity to work alongside renowned photographers and directors Michel Compte, Sebastian Kim, Jonas Aukerlund, Diane Martel, and Sante D’Orazio.
As he turns his energy and excitement toward his hairstyling career, he finds inspiration through art, music, fashion, nature and surf culture. The ability to use all of his life experiences, exposure to numerous cultures, and love of the fine arts into creating individual tailored looks is what fuels him now.
