Karmela was one of the youngest senior hair stylists at the Sahag
Workshop. Magazines such as Vogue, Nylon, WWD and People frequently
interview her about hair cutting techniques, tips and fashion trends.
In 2007 she was voted by readers of Allure Magazine onto their “A List”
as a top rated hair stylist in New York City. With an unabashed passion
for cutting hair, Karmela has a dedicated following of fashion, celebrity
and “civilian” clients.
She loves what she does and her clients do too. Personally trained
by John Sahag, Karmela lives by John’s ideal to constantly improve
ones skills as an artist. According to Karmela: “John taught us to
keep learning, every day, every second. My clients, whether they are
celebrities or civilians, all want a signature cut that feels like
they were born with it, with the Sahag Cut method, they get exactly
what they want.”
Whether on a photo shoot, or teaching at seminars, Karmela constantly
improves her ability to “see” more possibilities for her clients. Using
the Sahag Cut method on short, medium or long hair, Karmela can create
more imaginative and versatile shapes than with any other technique.
Her clients can “shake” their hair into place with minimal after shower
styling. It’s that natural, easy going and flowing.
Karmela learned from John to “always keep learning, seeing, doing”
and finding new ways to help her clients see themselves in a new light.
Up to date on the latest fashions and modern looks, Karmela lets her
clients help her find what’s “right” for them. Whether its for a Diane
Von Furstenberg runway show or Kelly Osbourne. Her clients help her
“discover” the look that pushes their self-image into what is current,
yet not a fashion victim. Her cuts are classic for clients who are
conservative, yet somewhat iconoclastic for those who are more daring.
Karmela can be reached for editorial photo shoots, fashion shows or
private clients through the John
