a luxury salon experience

about us

Awarded Boston magazine’s Best of Boston® 2023 – Best Salon North.

Our goal is that every client feels relaxed and pampered throughout their experience with us, from the moment you arrive at the salon.

When you pull into our parking lot you will have ample free parking in a private lot.  You can pull behind the salon to access the lot. When you enter the salon, we will hand you a robe to change, and will thoroughly discuss your style/color choice and what it will take to get you there.

Your time in the salon will be uninterrupted as we only service one client at a time. We book all of our services separately so be sure to book all services needed. Any services not booked may not be able to be performed based on timing availability. Example: If you are looking for a “Color Retouch” and a “Hair Cut” you need to book both, not just the “Color Retouch”. Please see our list of services linked below. Getting it right is important to us – we even offer complimentary video consultations on request to ensure proper booking.
