John Sahag workshop
By CAinCA on 10/7/2003
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.
Just the FACTS. leaving my opinions out of it.

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.
Definitely not worth $150 for a haircut

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.
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!
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.
Wonderful cuts & princess like service
By KarenG on 4/28/2003
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.
A Serene Salon: The John Sahag Workshop
By cjr on 8/22/2003
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.
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!
