Meet the ‘RHONJ’ hair whisperers (and how to get an appointment with them)

The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 7Tommy Garcia/Bravo

I think we all can agree that the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies have the strongest hair game around.  But they definitely don’t wake up that like that. You know what they say. Behind every great woman, there is a great hair stylist. And the wives certainly aren’t shy about showing their love for their hair masters on social media. So much so, that some of them have even become social media stars in their own right. I’m sure you are dying to know if it’s possible to get an appointment with these celebrity stylists, so we here at OMJ are here to help. And I am happy to report that yes, you most certainly can! Now without further ado, here’s the fabulous men and women behind the RHONJ’s infamous manes, and how you can score a coveted appointment with them.


Julius Michael: He’s the familiar face you see all over the RHONJ ladies Instagram feeds, and the man behind Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile’s fabulous Balayage transformations. With more than 18 years of experience, including working with Rita Hazan and Oribe Hair Salon, Julius is known for his mastery of color, highlights, and Balayage, as well as his original, and virtually undetectable hair extensions.

Another day another photoshoot.. Stay tuned????

Julius is so good that he is even able to work is magic on Richard Wakile’s infamous curls. He recently gave the RHONJ hubby a sleek and chic look with a Keratin treatment.

Then this happened @richardwakile! Yup @kathywakile he's lost it. On the next #RHONJ

Julius is not only a favorite among the RHONJ girls (and Melissa’s bestie), but he’s also the go-to hair guru for the entire Bravo family it seems (and we totally get why!). Julius has styled the manes of Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Barney, Shannon Beador, and Vicki Gunvalson, Bethenny Frankel of the Real Housewives of New York City, Kim Richards from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and the ladies from Vanderpump Rules. Jenny McCarthy, and Jonathan and Drew Scott, aka The Property Brothers, also trust Julius with their locks.

And lucky for us, he’s just a quick ride over the George Washington Bridge. You can book an appointment with him at his namesake Westchester County salon, Julius Michael Scarsdale Hair Salon.

Edyta of Midtown SalonRHONJ OG Teresa Giudice puts her trust in Edyta to keep her voluminous brunette tresses at their best. Her number one glam squad girl has been by her side during filming for Season 7 of RHONJ, as well as big press days for Us Weekly and Entertainment Tonight. You can book an appointment with her at Midtown Salon in Livingston.

David Antunes: In true Teresa fashion, she of course has not one, but two go-to hair stylists. In addition to Edyta, Teresa also turns to David Antunes to keep her hair looking fabulous. These two are extremely tight. He was the brand ambassador for Youthful 8 Milania Collection, which is the hair care line that she used to endorse, and that’s also how they met. Teresa isn’t the only familiar mane David ‘s hands has graced. He has styled George Clooney, Al Pacino, Alec Baldwinand supermodels Adriana Lima and Karolina Kurkova. You too can get your hair did by this top celebrity stylist. You can book an appointment with him at this Kearny salon, Hair By David.

Caitlin DeCunzo: When it comes to hair and beauty, Jacqueline Laurita is someone we can definitely trust. The 20-year cosmetology veteran entrusts her gorgeous locks with stylist Caitlin DeCunzo of Chateau Salon. Jacqueline is extremely loyal to the salon, which essentially created and casted Season 1 of RHONJ. To get Jac’s chic and sleek new shorter do’ (which we are obsessed with), you can book an appointment with Caitlin at this Franklin Lakes Housewives hotspot, where you might have a RHONJ sighting!

Daisy Latorre: Newbie Dolores Catania is faithful to her hometown stylist Daisy Latorre, who owns Daisy Unisex Beauty Salon.  The mom of two enlisted Daisy to create her signature voluptuous curls, which she has been slaying during Season 7. If you want to emulate Dolores’ gorgeous curls, you can easily book a session with Daisy at her Haledon salon.

Sal from Salon Q2: Relationship expert Siggy Flicker tames her long, beautiful tresses by frequent visits to Salon Q2 in Cresskill, which she loves to document on Instagram. Sal is her go-to guy, but she also enlists the help of Mali and Gem. This high-end Bergen County salon specializes in cutting-edge hair styling and color, and we totally get why the Sig is obsessed. You can book your appointment with her three main men at Salon Q2, or you can grab a blowout at their sister location, Q Blow Bar in Tenafly.
