Sandi Jahannia

Hi! I’m Sandi. I’m a native New Yorker and haircutting specialist and I have worked across the hair industry for over twenty years.

I am an expert in razor cutting, curly hair and natural textures for people of all backgrounds. 

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

I fell in love with North Carolina long ago and consider it to be my second home, while also based in New York City.


Here is what I can guarantee: I am versatile and dedicated when it comes to crafting a look that suits the vision and everyday style of my clients. My cuts are intimately designed and crafted to each client’s features and lifestyle; my sharp sense of style, honed growing up on the streets of NYC, celebrates timeless, boundless beauty and badassery in every cut.

I got my start at Bumble and Bumble in New York 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.


You can make appointments with me at The Funky Monkey in Durham; at Ceremony in Carrboro, North Carolina; and in my private studio on Manhattan’s Upper West Side (scroll down to contact me for a private appointment).

“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.”
