Set just above and out of sight from New York City’s bustling streets, lead stylist Shaun Surething works his magic specializing in grey hair color management, balayage and blonde colors in every tone out of a generously spaced, airy and luxurious West Village boutique hair salon. With Seagull Hair Salon firmly cemented as a West Village institution, Shaun has helped shape New York City’s fashion landscape working with the best stylists, editors, writers, designers, and artists. In the spirit of collaboration, Shaun works to pull the very best and brightest hair talent that our vast city has to offer, curating the most unique and desirable salon experience that you will ever have. Thriving in this inspiring and creative environment Shaun’s vision is expressed to its fullest every day and anyone who digs it is welcome to come along for the ride. Shaun has firmly established his place in New York City as a culture maker, beauty forecaster, and hair genius. Having written for numerous publications Shaun is the go-to resource for every beauty editor in the city and continues to grease the gears that run the scenes of downtown art, music and fashion.
Haircutter, and colorist, Shaun approaches color and style with broad strokes and an open mind, specializing in grey hair, grey-blending, Balayage highlights, and blondes of all kinds. Similarly to his cutting techniques, Shaun is largely self-educated drawing on inspirations from nature, art, and his immediate surroundings, shifting perspectives from one moment to the next. NYC is particularly inspiring to Shaun with its juxtaposition of confined natural beauty in the context of urban architecture. When performing color services, Shaun considers not only the actual color he is applying but the colors relationship to skin tones, eyes, and features of each individual client. Hair coloring creates texture where there is very little or can amplify what already exists. Shaun enjoys soft maintenance free haircuts that soften a total look. Shaun’s coloring expertise lies in the structure of colors rather than what he refers to as the “point and shoot” method of traditional hair coloring.
Shaun’s other interest can be found on his blog where he writes or publishes everything about, but not limited to hair.
