It started with bad haircut after haircut, then trips to Newbury Street in Boston for overpriced, conceited stylists. Frustrated, a search on Google found the ""best hair stylist in NH"", Ralph Martinese. I first went to him when the salon was in Rye and have followed him to North Hampton. When you walk into his salon he welcomes you in like a long lost friend. The atmosphere is classy and light hearted, with talented co-workers, a friendly dog and if you're lucky you get to meet one of his children. As a person he's healthy, inspirational and kind, as a business owner and stylist he is professional and extremely gifted. I will never go anywhere else - he always listens to what you want and creates a style tailored specifically for you. You get to learn about the latest and best products for your hair, get pampered and possibly even serenaded (tehe)! It's really wonderful every time I visit and my family loves going now too! Ralph continues to outdo himself with each visit. It's a 5 star experience with reasonable pricing, an amazing value! Having a gorgeous hairstyle that's perfect - IS the best thing EVER! As for that negative review, there's always going to be one miserable person... Before you make a decision try it for yourself and you'll know what's right. Rock it Ralph!!!
