When the fashion industry's leading photographers, designers, magazines and style-conscious celebrities need to create their trademark look, there is only one name: Garren.
A quintessential salon professional and fashion leader for more than two decades, Garren has been a miracle worker for his illustrious clients. With over 1,000 magazine covers to his credit, Garren’s name is synonymous with the highest level of style, sensibility and sophistication.
His work is featured regularly in leading fashion publications including Vogue and Italian Vogue and in a bi-monthly “Ask the Expert” column for Allure. Throughout his career, Garren has collaborated with the industry's leading photographers, including Steven Meisel, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Klein, Michael Thompson, David Sims, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Jean-Baptiste Mondino and the late Richard Avedon and Irving Penn to create memorable images for both editorial and advertising. He has been employed by world-leading companies and designers such as Cover Girl, The Gap, Calvin Klein, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Escada, Giorgio Armani, Prada, Versace, Valentino, Akris, Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui, for whom he creates fashion forward, cohesive looks for their advertising campaigns and runway presentations.
Garren’s ability to transform his client’s looks has earned him a celebrity following. From Angelina Jolie, Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, Scarlett Johansson, Nicole Kidman, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Sandra Bullock, Selma Blair, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Jessica Parker, Drew Barrymore, Jessica Biel, Megan Fox, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Keira Knightley, Mariah Carey, Oprah Winfrey and the late Audrey Hepburn; they have all turned to Garren to create their breathtaking looks. Garren also continues to create trendsetting looks for today’s hottest fashion models, including Gisele Bündchen, Karen Elson, Doutzen Kroes, Lara Stone, Jessica Stam, Caroline Trentini, Natalia Vodianova, Julia Stegner, Amber Valletta, Carolyn Murphy, Liya Kebede, Naomi Campbell and of course, Linda Evangelista.
While Garren's client roster of magazine editors, leading photographers, designers and supermodels reads like a who's who of the fashion, music and movie world, the difference between runway and reality piques his interest and pleases his private clients. Ten weekdays a month, Garren dedicates time in his New York salon to enhancing the beauty of "everyday" women, giving each private client a style which meets her personal needs while bringing forth her inner-beauty. In December of 2006, Garren opened the doors to his new, modern, elegant and intimate 2,000 square foot salon in the Atrium of New York’s landmark Sherry-Netherland Hotel, located at 781 Fifth Avenue at 59th Street. For over 35 years, Garren has continued to push boundaries, and dictate hair trends in hair and fashion today.
