    JOHN SAHAG APPRENTICESHIP. HE WAS VERY GOOD AND A VERY QUICK LEARNER IN MY HAIR SALON IN BEIRUT LEBANON (SALON SARKIS OF BEIRUT). AFTER TWO YEARS OF WORK EXPERIENCE, HE EMIGRATED TO AUSTRALIA WITH HIS PARENTS AND LATER, WENT TO WORK IN EUROPE AND FINALLY SETTLED IN NEW YORK WHERE HE ESTABLISHED FAME AND SUCCESS.

    I WAS VERY HAPPY TO SEE HIM AGAIN IN 1993 DURING A SHORT VISIT TO THE STATES. HE WELCOMED ME LIKE ROYALTY. I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT.

    WE ALL REMEMBER HIM WITH GOOD AND WONDERFUL MEMORIES AND FONDNESS.

      Thank you so much for posting with your wonderful memories. He told me he had worked in a salon in Beruit. Just curious. How old was John then? I know he started young, but would love to know how young. ~H

      Thank you, Diana, on behalf of John and Baron up there for two lovely Comments. Yes, he was charming and talented and did not copy. Have you taken a look at his work archived on the website. Go to HairThen on the top menu and scroll down to many albums with his best work.
