Our Story

JULIAN NEWMAN

Hello, I'm Julian and I created EDGE in 2010. Before I moved to the United States with my family in 2003, I worked as a barber in my home country, Iran. My dream was to own my own hair salon and I worked in a number of salons in Florida, including Toni & Guy.

I worked with Toni & Guy for a few years before I was promoted to do hair for models in fashion shows. Fashion Week NYC in 2009 was my big break. I met models, designers, and make up artists who were inspired by my work and promised to become my clients if I opened a salon in NYC.

Toni & Guy saw the value in my work and relocated me to their salon in Manhattan. In 2010, I had built up a number clients and was finally ready to take the step to open my salon. EDGE was born and the rest is history.
