Known for his daring, rule-breaking cuts for some of hollywoods biggest icons and other celebrities, he has a career spanning over 5 decades.

Garren has worked at the top level of fashion with EVERYONE.

His list of photographers include  Bill King, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Klein, Mert and Marcus and of course Steven Meisel, whom he worked with exclusively for about 20 years.

Garren has had many celebrity noteworthy moments, cutting off Farrah Fawcett’s angel wings and then cutting her hair short, cultivating Madonna’s look for the famous Sex book, creating that short pixie cut for Victoria Beckham, and turning Haley Bennett into a style icon with her bob hair cut.  

Garren is as comfortable with cutting sheers (and not afraid to use them) as he is with styling tools, wigs and studio lights.

He was a part of the supermodel era along with Steven Meisel, and did transformative haircuts and color changes for Linda, Christy, Naomi and Amber, at a great time when models were able to change their looks.

The Supermodels were the Stars and Garren was their secret weapon.

Other celebrities include Audrey Hepburn, Barbara Streisand, Oprah, Giselle, Gigi and Lady Gaga. Garren is the creator of Karlie Kloss’ dramatic chop and Kendall’s transformative bob.

He has worked backstage at fashion shows, from Capucci to Anna Sui and Valentino.
