April Barton's Portfolio
"I touch it and its fierce!"
I've been cutting hair for over twenty-five years and I still love it. It’s an "inside job," one of my philosophies on life, and that’s how I cut, from the inside out. Using a distinct style I've created known as “interior shaping,” my cuts last for months and grow in beautifully. I've worked with Bono, Matthew Modine, Jake Gyllenhaal, Adrien Brody, and Willie Nelson, and although most famous for my men’s grooming, I'm equally adept at styling fabulous women such as Bonnie Raitt, Mary J. Blige, and Avril Lavigne. Artists, musicians, actors and TV personalities regularly visit my salon. From the corporate giant to the super’s daughter, I discover my clients’ comfort zones and create something for them that is uniquely their own. Never one to settle for the norm, in 1995 I opened up my own salon, Suite 303, in the Chelsea Hotel, previously home to such legends as
Jimi Hendrix, Leonard Cohen, Sid Vicious, Patty Smith, Janis Joplin, Stanley Kubrick, Arthur Miller and Ethan Hawke. I wanted my clients to feel the incredible creative spirit that lives within the walls of The Chelsea Hotel. It’s part of the whole experience. My work is seen in film, TV, commercials, and music videos. I was featured in the documentary Women on Top. In 2007 I was Chief Hairstylist on TLC’s 10 Years Younger and appeared on Bravo’s reality series Shear Genius. My work has been in top magazines such as Rolling Stone and GQ, working mostly with photographer Mark Seliger. Currently, while the Chelsea Hotel remains closed, Suite 303 still keeps it’s off-beaten-path feel at 7 Bond St, NoHo on the ground floor through Selima Optique.
