John Sahag With Love

With Love


“My clients include Queens, Princesses, rock bands and some very lovely Mums – they are all important to me.”

“I’m crazy about change…it’s evolution, I am tomorrow’s man, fully living every second of the day. If you do something today, the minute your client walks out of the door, it’s already old-fashioned.”

“I function from my heart. With my feelings, and towards beauty.”

“For me, a woman is a prima donna. It is as simple as that.”

“A salon is a workshop, a stage, because I know I can perform fantastic work – and be with a 100 ladies at the same time!”

“I do hairdressing because I find it sexy! I would not change my position for a king.”

“I really believe I have an important task to fulfill – which Is making women beautiful. And I abide by it. I obviously love it. I am actually living it. I do not feel I am working, and never have.”

God inspires me in a great way. God is beauty for me, in reality. I am also influenced by literally everything that comes around me – by fashion itself, fashion designers, graphicism, colors, people, music.”

“People are afraid of being humble. I think that to be humble is a grand quality, and I mean that with sincerity.”

To Amy Laroca, New York Magazine, March 2004. “When you’re cutting, you’ve got to go there,” he tells me. “Where?” “There.”

John had an unusual voice, and what came out of his mouth was also unusual. Always. He gave the best interviews, full of sentences no one else could concoct. What I call his Sahag-isms are inspirational, forever…
