Nontoxic Haircuts in New York and North Carolina

Hi! I’m Sandi.

I do expert haircuts in New York City and Durham, North Carolina.

I’m extremely passionate about nontoxic haircuts and haircare and I am sure to use only organic hairstyling products, free of any adverse ingredients.

I am a native New Yorker with a studio in Manhattan and Durham and have worked across the hair industry for over twenty five years, with expertise in razor cutting for all hair types and textures. I love to help give volume and texture to fine/straight hair, movement and lightness for heavy/ thick hair, shape and bounce for curly hair. People from all backgrounds and hair types are welcome.



I am a versatile and dedicated professional crafting haircuts that suit the vision and everyday style of my clients. My goal is effortless hair for everyone. Therefor my haircuts are intimately designed and crafted to each client’s features and lifestyle; moreover, my sharp sense of style, honed growing up on the streets of NYC, celebrates timeless, boundless beauty in every cut.


Bumble and Bumble in New York is where I got my start during the late ‘90s, which led me to become a Bumble & Bumble Network Educator. Eventually I diversified, bringing my expert style to working on films, commercials, music videos and fashion campaigns in New York and Los Angeles. In 2021 I relocated to Durham to be close to my family.

“Highly recommend Funky Monkey and specifically Sandi! She’s the best! I have been going to Sandi for haircuts for ten years now and she is phenomenal. She works between NY and NC, and I always saw her in NY, but now that she is in NC so much more I had to road trip to see her at the Funky Monkey. She has been telling me about this spot for years and it’s so adorable with its own unique style.

Sandi sat me down and every time I see her she really gets to know my hair personally, literally on a molecular level of what direction to cut which hairs. She is a master razor artist, always getting the back of my head just right. The cuts always last a while too, because Sandi knows how to cut so that when it grows out it continues to look good through various phases. She is worth every penny for long lasting style and for her personal attentiveness to crafting a look that really suits me.”

Best hairdresser in NYC.  People constantly ask me where I get my cuts.  I’ve got delicate, hard-to-manage locks, and I get incredible texture, volume, depth and style with Sandi every time.  She’s also turned me onto nontoxic hair products that have transformed my hair texture – so grateful!  Sandi is an artist in the truest sense of the word, a genius with the razor, honoring individual hair texture, beautiful face framing, and fantastic style. Highly recommend.
