I love all these sites that give actual user reviews of the services one is looking for.
I decided that I had to research my next hair salon since I havent been happy with my previous two hair cuts. they were nothing to complain about but no one ever complimented me. Also, I never felt prettier when I came out.
I noticed that some reviews sound like the mother of the hair dresser had written it-praise beyond. The other side of the coin was that some reviews sounded like jilted lovers full of bitterness and revenge had written them.
I decided on Gabriel at Sahag and Im glad I did. I am now going for my third haircut with him.
When we met, he took the time to ask me what I was looking to do. I said that I thought I wanted to go shorter but he advised that I should ease into it since I wasnt 100% certain. I listened and he only cut off a couple of inches. For the first time in a very long time, I started to receive a few compliments on my hair.
Three months later I went back and he took off just a small amount but gave me bangs. My boyfriend said I looked like I was a Victorias Secret model-I know he was exaggerating but who cared? I felt sexier! When I go next week Im not going any shorter but I look forward to feeling beautiful for the holidays.
Gabriel isnt cheap but his skills are definitely worth the $200 fee.

I recently visited New York City and was recommended to a stylist named Karmela Lozina by a friend and decided to try her out. Wow! My hair looks and feels amazing! She really listened to what I wanted and even made some suggestions based on my face shape and lifestyle. All the staff was really great. I got a nice relaxing shampoo from the assistant, and the girls at the reception desk were very helpful. I can't wait for my new trip to NYC to see Karmela!

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 and post false ads to lure models in for work and then take advantage and Violate a Contract.

I am not happy at all with the keratin treatment that I had received. First off let me say that there was a confusion with which stylist that was suppose to do my hair. One stylist had started and then he finds out with the front desk that another stylist is suppose to work on me, so I had to get up and move over to the correct stylist. Even though there was a confusion with the stylist they were both great. However, the keratin treatment wasn't. I did receive a keratin treatment elsewhere and it was 100 times better than here.

I have never been so unhappy with a haircut that I have been motivated to post a review until now. Gabriel made a mess of
my long curly hair. All he needed to do was fix a top that was too short for the rest of my hair by adding in an extra layer. Instead he made the rest of my hair shorter than the top and slanted the sides
backwards. I look dreadful and about ten years older. I am very suspect of all the "glowing" reviews on the various sites. They are what prompted me to go back to the salon ( note I use to go to Sahag to a different stylist who has left the salon). Buyer beware.

i have gotten my hair colored in many shops and Doug Matthews is by far the best at recreating my nautral "red" color- he starts with a base color, adds hilights and lowlights and finishes with a glaze, it lasts for much longer, too

I have been seeing Doug Macintosh for my color for several years now. He is ALWAYS consistent. This last week he amazingly layered the colors of the rainbow into an amazing platinum blond he created for me (I am really a dark haired brunette.) I love my hair and I think it effing rocks!! It makes people happy everywhere I go! I absolutely admire Doug's ability, consistency and creativity. If you have a chance to get your hair done by him, take it!

A girlfriend of mine recommended Sahag for a Keratin treatment (Brazilian blodry). I have been doing this treatment for 2 years, from LA to London. I have never seen any salon advertising this treatment for more than $400. I usually pay around $300. I was stupid not to ask what the price was; but morbidly disgusted when I went to check out, and they asked for $630. I wanted to laugh an cry at the same time.
I will not be returning to SAHAG for any treatment whatsoever. If they have the audacity to charge DOUBLE what normal salons charge for a Keratin treatment, I cannot even imagine how bad they rip you off for color/cuts.

REALLY DISGUSTING.

This is my first review on citysearch. I am only writing one because Citysearch helped me decide to go to Gabriel and I am so thrilled that I did. Every Sunday I read a couple of fashion blogs that I have followed for the last 3 years. One of them mentioned that she went to Gabriel and loved her new bob. I googled him and liked his pictures on the website and loved his youtube video so I set up an appointment.
When I met Gabriel he was cute and charming. He was finishing a girl who had gotten a really short sexy cut. She was a makeup artist at Barney's. That made me even happier with my decision to come to him.
My hair was to my shoulders, which took a long time to grow, but it never looked polished and professional to me. He said he could give me a layered bob that would give my hair more volume but not look like a 1970's haircut. I felt comfortable with him so I agreed. 40 minutes later I looked better than I imagined I could. I love my new hair and I do feel more springy with it. Gabriel told me that as it grows out it will get even better and that I probably won't need another cut for a couple of months. That made me feel better about the $200 price.
I never belonged to citysearch before but joined today. Since the reviews helped me decide to go to Gabriel I
felt I owed my own review.
I love citysearch and I love Gabriel!

After 15 years of friendship what do bff's give each other for the holidays?
I thought I was brilliant giving my friend a Kindle so that she could read whatever she wanted whenever she wanted.
However, I received an envelope with cash and a John Sahag business card with Gabriel's name.
Who needs the newest technology when with an hour of snips you can feel renewed, restored and sexier than you ever thought you could be naturally.
Thanks Gabriel and thanks Sandy-I owe you big time!!

I walked in looking for a change in my color, Doug Macintosh the color director changed my hair. He took me to a beautiful chocolate brown from an orange blonde, then he put some carmel highlights in throughout my hair,so natural.
I tought my hair couldn't feel or look better,until he turned me on to one of his AMAZING KERATIN TREATMENTS. My hair went from dull frizz to amazing silky hair with zero frizz,even in the rain. I am hooked!!!!! I will never leave this man.
Doug was great, he listened to me,explained everything throughly and delivered more than he promised. He is a funny,down to earth witty guy thst looks more like a tattoo'd biker, than your average hairdresser.A genius and unique find.
GO SEE HIM NOW!!!

I am a youtube freak- I search all kinds of stuff on it every day and am never disappointed.
Last week I was searching out hair stylists and found a clip titled "John Sahag Hair by Gabriel".
I liked the fact that the clip wasn't just tons of celebrities but there were a lot of every day women with
realistic cuts that looked classic and sexy. I called the salon and got an appointment with Gabriel. It was pouring rain and everyone in NYC seemed grumpy and stressed around Rockefeller Center.
When I entered the shop, it was like I walked into another dimension-tranquility and calmness abound even
though the place was busy. Gabriel came and greeted me with a big smile and the coolness of Bryan Ferry.
He listened to what I wanted and then gave me his impression of what he should do. I allowed my rock star stylist to go ahead with his vision-WOW!! I look and feel amazing. I was startled at how quickly he
transformed me into one of the sexy but down to earth gals in his video. Thanks, now I'm a freak for Gabriel and John Sahag!

l came home from school last weekend after breaking up with my boyfriend of 2 years. I was on my second bag of oreos, watching The Notebook for the 3rd time when my mom announced that she was taking me to her hairstylist for a new look. OMG- as if that could make me feel better. I told her that I was not going but she guilt tripped me into it.

When I met Gabriel, I was surprised that my mom would go to such a rocker. He was so sweet-he has
this accent that is sooo cute and told me not to be upset that there were lots of fishes in the sea and I would have a new one soon. Gabriel told me that he adored long hair and that he was going to layer and taper it
so it would be sexier. How did he know that I was worried that he would cut too much off?
40 minutes later I couldn't wait to update my facebook page-my hair was sexy and now I have bangs (fringe he called it-soooo cute!!).
Gabriel was right, I came back to school yesterday and already got asked out. I can't wait for my ex to see me-he really is a tool. My mom was right also-looking hot is the best revenge.

I went to Gabriel, my stylist at John Sahag, and brought in photos of a celebrity with a certain cut and said I'd like that style. He had a thoughtful discussion with me about what would be slightly different about it for me, given my own hair length and the challenges I would have maintaining the look. We both agreed to go ahead and he then skillfully and artistically worked on my hair doing a dry cut for over an hour. It looks fantastic! It's the best cut I've ever had and I couldn't be happier. His cuts are always so easy to maintain and they grow out beautifully.

I went to Sahag yesterday with baby fine, limp hair with no style. Karmela looked at some pictures I brought in and quickly determined which were good for me, and which were not. Karmela is a perfectionist and took her time to make sure that every hair was cut just right. I felt like a completely different person when I left there. My hair was stylish and had tons of volume.

Bonus, the rest of the staff were friendly and the atomosphere is very relaxing. Run don't walk to Sahag and be sure to ask for Karmela. She is the greatest.

P.S. - I never write reviews, but felt I had to let everyone know about my experience

in preparation for my boyfriend's visit this coming sunday, on Friday I went to a minimalist japanese salon around the corner from my place to get my hair cut. I wanted something special, but didn't want to go to severe. What I got was a total disaster. I went home and cried. It was so awful. Words can't describe how monstrous I looked. Panicked, I called up John Sahag Salon that morning and the only stylist available was a italian guy named Valentino Longo . I figured what the hell, it can't get any worse.

i went in at 2pm, and he was running a little late, but when I finally got in his chair he looked at me, listened to me, and then told me what he was going to do. It was like he had already figured it out while I was waiting for him. He didn't speak to me at all while he was working, which kind of freaked me out a little, but when he was done , I was a woman again. It was beautiful! I really can't figure out how he salvaged the disaster that was my haircut, but he did, and I am soooooooo thankful. My boyfriend will probably appreciate the story, but I'm not going to tell him until he compliments me. Oh, and special bonus! I thought I was going to have to drop a ton of money for this, but his price was actually really reasonable for his art-skill. I will definitely be going back.

I really can't figure out how he salvaged the disaster that was my haircut, but he did, and I am soooooooo thankful. My boyfriend will probably appreciate the story, but I'm not going to tell him until he compliments me. Oh, and special bonus! I thought I was going to have to drop a ton of money for this, but his price was actually really reasonable for his art-skill. I will definitely be going back.

The best haircuts in New York. You may spend longer having your hair cut here, but you have superb craftsmen. Although I have often had to work with other stylists for my job, whenever I am paying for a cut myself I had straight to the John Sahag Salon.

So here I am at the bar in the Soho Grand with my boyfriend of 3 months when I notice this girl keeps looking over at us. I ask him if he sees her staring. He quickly dismisses it -which convinces me that she must be an old flame that he is ignoring. Regaining my composure, I pretend not to see her anymore and continue being fabulous. Suddenly, out of the corner of my eye I see her approaching and figure now I will find out if my new prince is really a tool. She comes over, excuses herself and tells me that my hair is so amazing she has to know where I am going to get it cut.
Whew!!! What a compliment!! My hair is adored by women across the restaurant and my prince is still that!!
Thanks Gabriel for one of the best nights of my life!

Pros: Gabriel-The Best Cut In Years

Cons: Haven't experienced any

I just returned from my second visit to John Sahag to have my hair cut and styled by Valentino. I couldn't be more pleased. The salon is very convenient for me because I work in the same building but despite this, I was a little nervous about trying something new after being with the same stylist for 12 years. I read a very positive review about Valentino on another website and decided to make an appointment. It was a positive experience from start to finish. In fact, I have never had a hair cut last as long or grow out so nicely. He also gave me some good advice about improving the health of my hair. I was very impressed.

I have had nothing but great service from everyone but Valentino's has a unique touch and i will recommend him to everyone .July

I am waiting to my own personal economic stimulus package to kick in.

So I'm not going away on a vacation. But to "treat" myself I went for a haircut with Gabriel after reading about him.

I have hard to manage hair (i gave up years ago) and he gave me the perfect cut that I can do on my own. Everyone says I've never looked so good and this cut was totally designed just for me!

This may be the best vacation I ever gave myself!

what is a girl to do with this recession?
I've traded down my lancome mascara to one by l'oreal
i'm touching up my pedicure so that it lasts a full month and when i have dinner out i now request a doggie bag for my imaginary pet but the true beauty in my newly imposed budget lies in my haircuts- cuts by gabriel look great for at least 3 to 4 months while i have freinds that need to keep up their do's every 6-8 weeks. my hair just keeps getting better as it grows out gabriel says that that has to do a lot with dry cutting but i know he is just being modest i almost miss seeing him since there is so much time in between my appointments
thanks gabriel for looking after my hair and my bank account-suzy orman would love you

I went on a recommendation from a friend because my long hair had become incredibly blah and grey. I got thorough consultations on what I wanted, and the end results were truly amazing. I got long gorgeous layers and subtle highlights to cover up my gray. I am 30 years old and when I left the salon I had 20 yr old hair due to the highlights. It seemed thicker, glossier, and had great shape. John Sahag was a legend in his day and it's nice to see his proteges are carrying the torch.

I live in Boston and I'm yet to find a salon like John Sahag Workshop. My best friend lives in Manhattan and has been going there for years. She has been begging me to try it for so long. I finally gave in and boy am I glad I did. In my 28 years I have never recieived such a good hair cut. I am so incredibly pleased with my experience there and will continue to drive 4 hours to get a haircut. I highly reccomend anybody to try it. I guarantee you will like it. There is nothing you wouldn't like. Salon is very professional, clean, friendly staff, good service. I am looking forward to going back for my next haircut!

I have never received a better hair cut in my life - seriously! I've had cuts that I liked while in the salon, but the next day my hair is just as unruly as before. After having it cut at Sahag, I don't even need to style my hair - it just falls into place. The stylists are truly artists and by using the dry-cut technique they give you a real "custom" cut that works perfectly for your hair type, face shape, and overall style. It's fabulous.

You really can't find another salon like the Sahag Workshop, it's just that great!

.

If you are dying to find a place with stylists and colorists that are truly artists...look no further.

I love the drycutting process - I got the cut that was perfect style for me and it has been super easy to maintain. I was also able to feel young and vibrant again with the best color I have ever received...I will be back before summer is here!

I never thought that I would travel 2 hours to get my hair
cut - but now that I have have my hair "dry cut" at the Sahag Workshop - I never want to go to another salon.
I have always had issues with my hair - but now it always looks great. A great haircut makes the difference. I have actually tried several different sylists and have had a great experience with each of them.
Its a wonderful experience.

I have been to so many salons and walked out unhappy, here I always get what I ask for and my hair cuts and highlights always come out great. I would recommend Sahag to anyone who wants a great experience and doesn't want to spend the whole day at the salon.

I followed a recommendation from a friend, who has been raving about her haircuts and color at Sahag, Workshop and I am so happy I did. The salon is beautiful and serene -and the service is great.
I walked in with dull "frizzy" hair and walked out with beautiful shiny highlights. My hair never looked so good. Thank you so much Frank. You heard what I said and you a a true artist. You now have a new client forever.

Just came back from my hair cut with Thomas. Great job! Everyone was so friendly and made me feel like I belong. It's not one of those places that gets you in and out. He took his time, and made sure my hair was done right. I even got a Diet Coke served to me!

I just adore the cuts I get from Gabriel. A consummate professional whose shears give a cutting edge look. He always asks for my ideas and then I let him have at my hair.

A different look is what my goal is-I am not the same person I was the previous appointment.

Gabriel gives great cuts.

I can't wait to treat myself for Valentine's Day!

......That is how I felt after one haircut with italian stylist, Valentino Longo. Valentino is a master at his craft. His creative talents are fresh, up-to-date, sophisticated and very high end. Valentino Longo is to hair what Valentino is to couture fashion. Like DaVinci and Michaelangelo, his passion for his work and his clients are evident in his masterpiece! I highly recommend Valentino for his elegant sense of style and his proficiency in both color and cut.

I am a client of the workshop on the Monday teaching days and every time I go in I am more and more impressed with my cut. Also, every time I am there, Johnny is teaching and always putting his two-sense in the cut. The dedication and the love that he gives not only to the "guests"(which I love that we are not only clients), and to the ones he is training is an experience you have to feel at least once in your salon life, either if you can afford him, or want him to guide a jr. stylist through. Its truly a passionate and loving experience. Also not to take any of the focus off Leonidas, who is there every Monday and always makes me feel amazing and cared for after each cut. The cutting from the jr. stylists is actually a better cut than what I have received from hair stylists with many years of experience.
