John Sahag workshop

  • No, I would not go back!

Went in based on great article in Vogue and other PR. Spent $150 but got very mediocre cut which I could have gotten somewhere else for 1/2 the price. It never looked good - no matter how much time I spent on it. Salon receptionists acted too busy on the phones to care about anyone - think this is aonly a place for famous ladies to have their hair cut by John. My hair cut was seriously not very good and DEFINITELY not worth $150. Just an all round over-rated place which gets lots of PR cause John cuts Debra Messing's hair. Well, I'm not DM so I got whoever else.... and it wasn't worth it. Stay away -save your money and your hair.

A Serene Salon: The John Sahag Workshop

The John Sahag Workshop is without a doubt the most professional, hip and pleasing salon I have ever been to. The stylists are knowledgable, precise and incredibly innovative. And the colorists, Sara Gold in particular, perform magic with hair paint. There are two guaranteed results from any visit to The John Sahag Workshop: 1) gorgeous hair 2) strangers stopping and staring as you cruise by.

Wonderful cuts & princess like service

Okay, so it's not cheap, be prepared to spend about $600 for cut (by Mr. Sahag), color, style, but if you want to feel like a princess for the afternoon, here's the perfect place. Even though Mr. Sahag has styled the hair of quite a few celebrities, he'll make you feel like the most important person he's ever taken care of. And Sara the colorist is phenomenal. I wouldn't have my hair colored by anyone else. The service by all the staff is so gracious and friendly, they make you feel like their most important visitor. And that's nice. As another plus, the last time I got my hair cut here, I was stopped later that day and asked for my autograph. I had been mistaken for a well known actress. It was the hair.
