Before joining the Marie Robinson Salon as a senior hair stylist, James began his career in London, England—his native country—at the renowned Daniel Hersheson Salon. When James came to New York in 2005, he quickly became one of the most requested stylists at Sally Hershberger Downtown.
James has spent a decade styling hair for runway shows, fashion campaigns and editorial photo shoots, and has done hair for an impressive list of celebrities that includes Martha Stewart, Eddie Falco, Elvis Costello, Kim Gordon, Courtney Love and Diana Krall, among others. He owes much of his success to mentors who helped cultivate his skills along the way, including Guido Palau, Orlando Pita, Daniel Hersheson and Sam McKnight.
Although James gets his inspiration from the world of high fashion, he himself is very laid-back and approachable. These contrasts translate well in his hairstyles, especially his signature cut: a short, funky bob with lots of movement and seamless layers. His cuts are always easy for his clients to style on their own, and they grow out effortlessly. Anyone looking for a super chic hairstyle that’s truly low maintenance, James is your man.
James joined the Marie Robinson Salon as a hair stylist in 2016, and offers his services in both the New York and Miami locations.
