GS Hair owner Greg Saumure is so particular about who he hires that he created The Cut Test, a trial by scissors that challenges prospective stylists to execute five different haircut styles as well as demonstrate mastery in coloring tresses. The result is a staff of Paul Mitchell? and Vidal Sassoon?educated stylists with such extensive knowledge that they can cut a trendy bob while blindfolded with a writhing koala. These stylists work their mane magic across a 3,000-square-foot space complete with 20 hair stations, ergonomically designed shampoo bowls, and even a mani-pedi lounge.
