The studio

Known for his extraordinary skill and stylish vision, it’s no wonder that James Corbett has been touted by Allure Magazine as one of the country’s top colorists, or that ELLE Magazine honored him with The Beauty Genius Award – The Gloss Boss.

Located in the heart of the bustling Flatiron District, James Corbett Studio is an award winning, full-service hair salon offering expert color, cuts, styling and advanced hair and scalp treatments in a welcoming, Zen-like setting that vibrates with positive, uplifting energy.

We are inspired every day to draw out the beauty that exists in each and every one of our clients– allowing their outer and inner beauty to shine through and to spread joy one head at a time.

Inspired by the original concept of a “salon”, where kindred spirits gathered to share their passions and develop their artistic expression, James Corbett Studio was founded in 2007 as an “ insider’s” space for leading beauty experts and influencers to have their hair transformed in a luxurious loft above Union Square. As word spread, so too did the global roster of clients.

In 2012, the Studio moved to our current location – an airy space featuring a luxury beauty boutique, secret meditation garden, and a “color bar” born out of James’ philosophy that, when it comes to hair– one size does not fit all.

The History

Besides amassing an impressive list of celebrity and industry clients, James has trained with the best in the business. At Salon A.K.S. he trained with top colorists from Frederick Fekkai and Louis Licari, honed his skills with industry legend Jose Eber and worked at Warren-Tricomi. Through these experiences, Corbett shaped his own unique identity in the world of hair color. After a decade of perfecting his craft, it was time for James to break out on his own. Celebrating its 11th year, The James Corbett Studio is regarded as a luxurious, serene beauty oasis in the midst of bustling midtown Manhattan. Its forward-thinking Color Bar, James’ brainchild, has left clients in awe since it debuted in the studio’s new space in 2012. In addition to his work at his salon, Corbett teaches color classes and has shared his expertise, tips and tricks across media platforms having appeared on national and regional and Internet television segments, fielding calls from listeners on Cosmo Radio and addressing beauty editors at the MoMA as a spokesperson for Sally Beauty Supply. In 2013 James was named Clairol Color Director for Clairol 

The Beauty

For James, beauty is synonymous with inspiration and tranquility. He embodies a true passion for his craft and believes that every client deserves a personalized experience in an uplifting space, allowing their inner and outer beauty to shine. His philosophy that a visit to his salon should not only beautify but also empower and uplift lead him to establish Hair2Help, a non-profit that provides complimentary beauty and wellness services to cancer patients and their caregivers.

As Corbett’s studio and career continue to thrive, he remains that inspirational artist/best friend who masterfully brings out the beauty, and positive energy, of every client who sits down in his chair.
