Stylist Shaun SureThing cuts the best hair in his NYC hair salon, Seagull

I love the way that Shaun Surething cuts and colors my hair so much... I bought him a hair salon!
Johanna Fateman, Writer and Le Tigre member

What can I say? He's a great guy and he cuts my hair right. Sometimes I need a statement piece but mostly he's just the best hair guy I've found in NYC and he's about a ten minute walk away. -Adam Horovitz, Beastie Boys Member

There really is no other stylist in NYC I would trust to consistently realize my personal vision of beauty and individuality. I'm a fashion and music writer, so I'm up on current trends, but Shaun takes it a step further, creating hair looks that are truly artful and totally functional. It's important to me to have a unique look that speaks to the edge of the moment, and in five years, Shaun's cutting, coloring and styling skills have never let me down. He's taken me from blonde to brunette, short to long and sleek to shaggy with seamless artistry. I always leave Seagull Salon feeling like a more inspired version of myself.—Cristina Black, fashion and music writer

I wouldn't let anybody but NYC stylist  Shaun within a hair's length of my hair. In fact I would never go to another NYC salon. Whenever I leave after another beautiful haircut, I think about how this is what NYC should offer: insightful conversation (much like a philosophers' salon) and great style.
Danielle Spencer, Art Director to David Byrne 

Shaun is a hair genius. He knows I'm a slob and that I barely even
brush my hair so he gives me a haircut that looks great being towel dried.His cuts actually kind of freak me out, they are so easy and perfect, super modernwithout looking at all like you're trying.
Who but Shaun can give someone with beyond shoulder length
hair the perfect a wash and go cut? He is also really perceptive,
so interesting and pretty fucking funny, I can't imagine going to
anyone else! - Kathleen Hanna, Writer, BIkini Kill and Le Tigre Member

I have been working in the fashion and art world for over 10 years now. I've been a stylist, an art director, event producer, and performance artist- to name a few. I am the most particular person about my hair style and cut, always changing it radically, and Shaun has always been there to take my hair to the next level. Out of the hundreds of hair stylists with whom I have worked, he's the best.  Shaun has been cutting my hair every chance I can get him for over a decade. He always understands my insane punk herstorical references and obscure art moments that I need incorporated into the aesthetics of my haircuts and color! He cuts my hair to look like a hot gay boy if needed, or a funky old art teacher. We're talking range and serious sculptural hair magic. I tried to drag him into the wild world of fashion shows and editorials, but he is the captain of his own boat, Seagull.  I truly think it's the best salon in NYC and I'm so happy I can always find him there. - K8 Hardy art star, fashion icon

"I've had the pleasure of knowing Shaun for the better part of 5 years. He is a brilliant stylist and easy to communicate with. Aside from being a great stylist he is a joy to be around and getting to know him personally has been wonderful, he is hilarious. We are never lacking in topics to dissect together. He is a true artist"

Of all the hair stylists in NYC (and beyond) Shaun excels as, quite simply, the greatest. In addition to being a truly gifted stylist (the beauty and ease of his detailed artistry is exceptional) he is equally welcoming, kind, funny, warm, utterly UNpretentious and all around wonderful to be around. If I could schedule an extra hour just to hang out with him at his salon I would. Ever since I moved to NYC I've had Shaun as my stylist and have never received so many compliments on my hair by both friends and complete strangers alike! Never had that happened to me in my life! They practically beg me for his information. Oh and also? He is a GENIUS with color. Seriously, don't waste your time or money on anyone else. Shaun is the one. Find him. Now.

As the director of Participant Inc. I come across artists of many disciplines . I am happy to include Shaun among not only my colleagues, but as one of my good friends. Shaun is fun, sincere and incredibly talented both as a NYC based hair stylist and artist in general and I am pleased to count him as one of my peers.

Mr. Cottle (Shaun Surething) is tall, with a bleached-blond, shaggy bowl cut that frames his longish, scraggily bearded face. He describes his style as Middle America glam/West Village rent boy; on a recent day when a reporter had her hair bleached by Mr. Cottle, he was wearing jeans, a vintage-looking T-shirt and a hoodie. Around his neck was the Tiffany heart pendant he’d been given by his boyfriend. Mr. Cottle is slim, but boasts a cute belly that suggests an endearing lack of vanity. He has some tattoos—including one on his arm of an exploding pipe bomb—and a comforting, buttery voice that would sound terrific on radio. Despite his punk-rock look, he greets his clients with kisses and hugs. He’s a softie.
Hillary Frey for the New York Observer

Stylist Shaun Surething is a color wizard famous for dynamite blond jobs and shag cuts.

As a fashion reporter, it's imperative that I look the part—which means my mass of unruly hair needs be beaten into submission. Shaun's got the magic touch, and he's given me a definitive style that works with my everyday life. I love his salon.
