Just the FACTS. leaving my opinions out of it.
By NYFashionModel on 8/3/2013
Sahag placed an ad saying they were "in dire need" and seeking models for a show they were doing at the International Beauty Show. They said they needed to show off their technique(s), and service(s), etc. The Contract they offered and advertised was to provide the model "complimentary cut and color services for an additional 6 months following the show." After only a couple months Sahag Breached their Contract (only after the model had already fulfilled more than their share of the Agreement) -- Not honest, NOT professional. Legitimate businesses do not lie to lure models in and then take advantage and Violate a Contract.
Great cut every time.

I discovered this place Fall 2008. Got a great cut by Leonidis and although I paid a bit more than I'm used to ($100), I will never stray again. Spent a fortune trying to save a buck in 4 other salons, just to come crawling back to the best I ever had! Sophisticated, patient and loving service is what Leonidis gives you at John Sahag. Hair leaves there silky, smooth & intricately cut. Love her style and will always return to her moving forward.
The best is even better than I thought!

I have always heard of Sahag and thought that it meant crazy wild hair that wasn't for a regular girl like me. But I can tell you that after my first visit to the home of the dry haircut (after a girlfriend badgered and finally bought me a gift certificate!!) I am wearing the best haircut of my life!!! It is pretty, stylish, beautifully executed and while not too edgy, makes my 40-somethingish self feel appropriately gorgeous! The whole staff is all about taking good care. They also have great monthly promotions that are available only by email so be sure to sign up!
I've been to the best and John Sahag Workshop Wins!!!
By Truth_be_told on 9/22/2005
I have been to all the best stylist's in Paris (Bruno Pittini/Carita), Los Angeles (Alan Edwards etc.) and New York but finally after years of knowing about them I finally made the switch. Boy was I late to the game. BY far this salon does its job. There are no distractions and the stylist's focus on their work something that they take great pride in not like other NY stylists who look in the mirror more at themselves than the client. In conclusion men and women can expect nothing but world class treatment for a high quality haircut without all the BS. You might pay a fraction more but it is well worth not having to go back a day later to the other high end salons begging for someone other than the hack who butchered your hair to fix the bad haircut. Highly recomended at John Sahag is Thomas who has been with John for 9 years. That loyality speaks volumes. This fantastic salon actually cares about it clients which is more than i can say about many of the high end NYC salons. A+ and highly recomended.

John Sahag - Genius
By Colleen Cleary (NY MAG) on 3/21/2005
JOHN has cut my hair for many years. I do not make a lot of money but am more than happy to pay what he charges. He is the only person who has ever given me a great haircut. When he cuts, he truly looks like an artist with a canvas. I love to watch him cut. He also shows that there are always many different ways to style it. A piece of advice to try just once -- I never tell him how to cut it. I have never been disappointed. Of course, the absolute best part of getting John to cut your hair is spending time with him. He is a beautiful human being. He gives you his full attention no matter who you are. He has never cancelled, put another client in front of me or any other such nonsense. He is incomparable. I love his product line. It did wonders for my hair. When he has not been available on short notice and I have gone to other stylist there I was not disappointed. They are remarkable. Once you go, you are hooked. He is an artist. Colleen

Not quite Madison ave but could have fooled me!

I have never been to Mr. Sahag's workshop in NY, but I went to a local salon here in Seattle. I was referred to this young stylist, Bruno, at Aria by a friend of mine. I was told he cut hair dry which intrigued me. When I sat in his chair he explained where he got his training from, which is what led me to this site. Hopefully John will read this because I want him to know that this talented young man was trained very well. Not only did I get the best haircut I have ever had in my life, but he made me feel like a princess while he did it. You can call me a client for life. Thanks John, and thanks Bruno!
Definitely not worth $150 for a haircut
By fashionista2004 on 4/1/2004
A beautiful salon, very pleasant professional staff, but Mr. Sahag needs to spend more time training his hair stylists to to deal with all hair types. Apparently the stylists teach each other!! I'm not happy with the cut I received, and it's very hard to style. Doesnt look like it's the end product of a well publicized, top knotch salon. Sorry, but that's the truth.

I visited the salon based on reputation and because I was intrigued by the "dry cutting" technique. I was extremely pleased with the results. I paid $150 for my cut and definitely found it worth every penny. The stylist listened to what I wanted and gave me a cut I could actually duplicate at home. I would highly recommend it.
