SHAG owner, celebrity stylist and Renaissance man Sandy Poirier took it to the graveyard this weekend with his Nikon D3S to shoot this amazing video with Seattle model and friend Meriesther Luce. He’s been drawing inspiration lately for and from his upcoming Porn Is The New Punk Rock line of t-shirts (launching Friday, September 17th at Gypsy Bar opening night), and you can tell!
Never one to be behind the curve on anything, be it style OR technology, you can expect a lot more video from SHAG this fall and next year. We still love our photo shoots but seeing the clothes and the hair moving really lends itself to our rockstar attitude and the fun we have shooting.
Also stay tuned for news on the Porn Is The New Punk Rock shirt launch! The invite and details will go up here in the next day or two and there will be LOTS of creative hair by our stylists to be seen…TAGS: Meriesther Luce, Porn Is The New Punk Rock, Sandy Poirier, SHAG

FOR HOT 100′S “HOT HAIR – SHORT AND SHARP”, STUFF MAG CONSULTED THE EXPERT: CELEBRITY STYLIST SANDY POIRIER!
Stuff Magazine’s always-anticipated Hot 100 Issue hit newsstands this week, which OF COURSE you already know because you’ve seen our sizzling new ad on the inside front page. Well, keep flipping through to read Sandy Poirier’s words of wisdom regarding one of his edgy, asymmetrical signature cuts. As someone who has personally been on the receiving end of Sandy’s short-hair rockstar acumen, I can say that Stuff definitely chose the right authority! Read the full blurb with Sandy’s thoughts below, from Stuff’s site:
“If you still think gorgeous hair looks like what you see in a shampoo commercial – long, flowing locks cascading over a model’s shoulder, shimmering in the sun and bouncing like a slinky as she bounds up stairs (“Gosh, I’m going to be looking fabulous for my imaginary meeting!”) – think again. “Pretty” is passé, says Sandy Poirier, owner of Shag (840 Summer Street, Third Floor, South Boston, 617.268.2500). Men and women are going for super-short clipper cuts on the sides, with longer, and frequently asymmetrical, textured razor cuts on top (leave the scissors at home – you want it to look like Freddy Krueger drummed his finger-claws on your head). The key: the cuts are left unblended for maximum edgy appeal. Besides the easy maintenance (add some product, tussle, and you’re good to go), we think it’s a cool unisex cut that looks good on girls (Rihanna rocks it, and Kelly Osbourne usually has some variation), guys (David Beckham’s been spotted with the coif), and anyone rocking androgynous flair with their hair (the punk-rock crew of Semi Precious Weapons). Think of it as business on the sides, party on top – hell, party all over.”

On the fourth, most people spend the day camped out on the beach or by a friend’s pool, drifting off lazily in the sun. Not so for rockstar hairdresser Sandy, who is most comfortable whipping around turns with his feet up on his Harley Davidson. THIS is how we do it at SHAG…see the video below for Sandy’s road antics. Not for the faint of heart!
