John Sahag, touted by the fashion industry as one of the top 15 greatest stylists, was the world's most sought-after commercial and editorial artist.
While styling hair for editorial, John noticed that once the model's hair was dry after a cut, it was easier to taper the shape. Attempts to perfect shapes for the camera led to the Sahag Dry Cutting Method. Truth be told, he didn't know he had created a revolutionary style of his own until he actually opened The John Sahag Workshop on Madison Avenue in New York. What he did know for certain was that the Sahag Dry Cut had put the art back into the hairdresser's hands.
At Sahag, our craft is cultivated with constant education in making shapes - shapes that reveal the person's beauty with a unique and eternally modern look.
The ability to capture the hair's intended shape is a process that you can master -the Sahag Dry Cutting Method. Learn from our master craftsmen in our hands-on program.
