GRAVEYARD PUNK ROCK – SHOT, DIRECTED AND EDITED BY SANDY POIRIER

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…

SHAG WINS BEST WOMEN’S HAIRCUT IN THE PHOENIX POLL

Boston Phoenix Best of Boston WINNER Best Women's Cut - SHAG
Here’s what they had to say about SHAG:

“The motto at this Southie salon is “Rock Star Hair.” And rock it they do at SHAG, with a permanent disco ball, club lights, and a DJ setup. MTV (along with TLC, the Discovery Channel, and the Style Network) has featured the shop and its owner, the heavily tattooed Sandy Poirier. If that’s not a rock-star stamp of approval, than we don’t know what is.”
