Meet Penny James
'Your hair is an expression of your personal style,
My goal is to create the perfect look for you. A beautiful hairstyle, shaped to suit your bone structure. Your hair should look gorgeous--on a wash-and-go day, your wedding day, and every day. It makes a difference in your life, and it starts with a sensational haircut.
I've always worked with the most passionate and innovative stylists in the world, and I'm grateful to learn--and keep learning!--from the best.
My career began 20 years ago in London, where I worked for Trevor Sorbie, MBE. When I moved to New York, I became a founding member of Frederic Fekkai. A synthesis of French and English cutting and styling techniques, my creative approach is stylish but uncomplicated.
It's my privilege to work with celebrities including Trudie Styler, Sting, Lorraine Bracco, Sarah Jessica Parker, Megan Hilty and Brooke Shields. Many of my other high-profile clients wish to fly under the radar: They know they can rely on my absolute discretion. I value my clients highly, and travel the world to accommodate their schedules.
My work has been featured in magazines, music videos, and the Tony Award-winning series, "The Sopranos." I have been part of Fashion Week for more than 15 years, in New York, London, Milan and Paris. Here are some of the looks I created for Cristina Ottoviano's first collection, shown at Radio City Music Hall. (Photos here.)
