A person’s hair style usually is the first thing that you notice when you meet them, so it’s important that the consultation with a stylist goes beyond the question of “what do you want to do with your hair?” This question is never uttered when you visit Fabien Magris at Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger in New York City. Magris will tell you that he is going to study your hair each time you have an appointment, he is totally in charge of the consultation, just listen and learn.

Fabien Magris began his career as a stylist in Paris at Jacques Dessange, where he first met and worked with Serge Normant under creative director Bruno Pittini.  Moving to New York he reunited with Normant at John Frieda, working closely with him in the world of high fashion, including shows for L’Wren Scott and Bulgari. He has also styled for Dolce and Gabbana , and his celebrity clientele covers Nicole Kidman, Jane Fonda, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rita Wilson and Renée Zellweger.

At the Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger, Fabien brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the restoration of dry, damaged hair, working to transformed from it tired and neglected to thick, fabulous, shiny and, most importantly, healthy.  So begin with healthy, which should be the cornerstone of your hair, Fabien immediately questions the type of water you are drinking as he lifts the hair to look at the hair growth pattern, feel the texture and observing how the hair is naturally falling. When you give your answer he stops to explain how your hair is working in tandem with the nutrients in the body and feeding the hair follicle.

As he talks about the natural fall of the hair he continues onto the issue of shampooing, many clients have gone the organic route with a focus on dropping sulfates, from Fabien’s experience the total removal of sulfates from a hair cleanser has an effect on the keratin to leave the hair limp and in some cases contribute to an overall thinner hair. The recommendation is that every now and again use a sulfate hair cleanser, the sulfate or salt in the shampoo will restore some body to the hair, but again the stress for the organic client is to use “occasionally.”

When moving to the wash area, Brenton Diallo a salon Stylist Assistant, is advised by Fabien on the recommendation of shampoo to be used, they then discuss the conditioner and again Fabien reiterates to Benton the reasons why this choice. Brenton explains that there are over 10 assistants who work to support the stylists, and every week at Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger Salon the assistants have educational training from one of the senior artists, so that they can continually upgrade their education, skills and knowledge.


As Fabien styles the hair, he explains why he is cutting in a certain way so that you can manage it when you leave, a question of which scissors are the preferred choice, Fabien comments that, “It is the skill of the stylist first that is important, not the equipment,” and that if he had to, he could cut your hair with a pair on nail scissors.  When drying the hair, feel the heat on the hands as you move through the hair, if you hands feel it’s too hot, then your hair is feeling is far more. Move quickly across the scalp with a feel of control and when every possible use a professional hair dryer, if the hair is naturally curly there is no need to use a brush to style, the cut speaks for its self.
