Sharon's favorites
Sharon Dorram – colorist to the stars – is known for creating beautifully natural color reminiscent of children's hair. A legend in the industry, her signature coloring style is low maintenance and down to earth, creating just the right shade for everyone who sits in her chair. Whether it is the perfect baby blonde, a deep mahogany brown, or a fantastic cedar red, you can spot Sharon's signature look from a mile away. Her roster of clients have included everyone from Barbra Streisand to Renée Zellweger, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman, Kate Winslet, Meg Ryan, Linda Evangelista, Candice Bergen, Kevin Kline, Edie Falco, and Christie Brinkley.

Sharon graduated from Bennington College in Vermont and followed her love of the arts to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and Winchester School of Arts in the United Kingdom. Her artistic eye and color sense led her to train under Louis Licari in the late 80s followed by stints with some of the world's most prestigious stylists, including John Sahag, Oribe, Frédéric Fekkai, and Peter Coppola.

Throughout her career, Sharon has been a spokesperson for various hair care product companies including Matrix and Nexxus. In the late 90s, she was named the Creative Consultant for the John Frieda brand. Additionally, Sharon has formed close relationships with many of the most important beauty directors and editors in the industry, including Glenda Bailey of Harper's Bazaar, Jane Larkworthy of W, Sarah Brown of Vogue, Susan Casey of O Magazine, and Amy Synnott D'Annibale of InStyle.

In early 2009, Sharon opened Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger in a beautifully decorated townhouse on the Upper East Side.

Sharon Dorram is an active supporter of the Evelyn H Lauder Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, ASPCA, and the Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons.

She currently resides in New York City with her husband and children.
