Boston Color Group-Nicole is irreplaceable! 1/14/2012

Another 5 star reveiw for Nicole!! After visiting countless salons, 5 minutes from my house is Nicole @ Boston Color Group....she is the best stylist, ever! She gave me the exact color I needed and wanted! I'll never go to anyone else! more

Nicole is the best- great color and cut! 9/12/2011

Nicole is the best stylist I have ever been to and I have been to many! She has a friendly, upbeat, down-to earth personality and is highly skilled and talented with both cuts and color. There is so much attitude at most salons with little effort to make the clients feel welcome. It's the opposite here- the atmosphere is fun and lively and Nicole makes everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Nicole also went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my hair. I went in with much of my hair light brown with blonde at the ends- badly in need of a cut and color. I have curly hair and a lot of it and it is not easy to cut or color. But it was easy for Nicole- for a very reasonable price she gave me gorgeous highlights that blend beautifully into my blonde ends and an excellent cut! What a relief for someone like me who has had countless hair disasters and many a terrible stylist! I highly recommend Nicole! Go see her- you'll be very happy you did! more

Best Corrective Color 6/23/2011

After two salons said they couldn't fix my magenta hair, Nicole made it look better than it did before the horrible dye job. My hair looks great and feels great. No damage at all! She is very well educated in corrective color and it shows. I visited two other salons before seeing her and it was a huge waste of time. Learn from my mistake and see her first. You will not be disappointed! more


After years of coloring my hair black to correct other "upscale" salon's mistakes, I had come to the end of my rope..I had searched high and low for someone who could correct this awful, black, goth mop on the top of my head and give me back the hair that I had once had. After much investigation, I came upon Nicole at BCG...and lets just say that she is the ultimate MIRACLE WORKER!!! After a consultation and discussing my goals for fixing my problem hair, we agreed on a plan of attack. Nicole was outgoing, knowledgeable, comforting, attentive and empathetic to my problem. She took the bull by the horns and did what noone else could do, she removed years and years of horrible black dye from my hair...she corrected the color to a chestnut brown with tons of highlights...she took the time to explain every step she was taking, involving me in the process. She never talked down to me or had a superiority complex like some other stylists...she is down to earth and makes you feel like you've known her all your life. She made me feel like a million dollars and the difference is incredible...she listens to your wishes and concerns and gives a realistic and truthful opinion of what can and can't be done...She is truly a magician and definitely pulled a rabbit out of her hat when dealing with me!! My hair is gorgeous and by the time I made it home to the south shore after a few stops, I had no less than six people compliment my hair. Don't hesitate go and see Nicole, she is truly a Master of her Craft and I am forever greatful for her help!! more


I walked in to BCG with hair the color and texture of, no word of a lie, Bozo the Clown, and a HORRID 80's hair metal cut. I couldn't take another "attempt" by my nice-but-inept former stylist. BCG took pity on me, restored my hair to a very pretty auburn, HELPED HEAL HEAT DAMAGE, knew how to cut curly hair (!!!), and gave me fantastic advice besides. AND she's friendly, AND she hasn't got a pretentious bone in her body. Nicole rocks. This is my seventh year of having my hair done at salons, and I've never met another stylist even close to her ability. The icing on the cake? She listens to her clients! Pros: Precise, knowledgeable, super friendly Cons: NA more

the BEST!!!! 10/28/2009

Been a client of Nicole's for almost 12 years. She has seen me through long and short styles, and has travelled with me through my red, blonde, brunette and highlited adventures. Through it all, she has made me always look great! She's the can't go wrong! Pros: flexible hours, honest assessments Cons: none that I can think of..... more

Great hair styling and color correction 10/14/2009

I was in desperate need after a salon bleached my highlights white. Nicole helped fix the dye job and saved my hair. Now my hair hasn't been healthier and she can always cut my hair in the style I was looking for. She is a wonderful stylist and treats all her customers like friends. Thank you, Brighteyes Pros: Best color correction Cons: None more

Simply the Best 10/5/2009

I have been going to Nicole for years and would never think of going anywhere else. My hair is not easy to style (thick, somewhat frizzy and wavy) and for years I went from stylist to stylist trying to find someone who could give me good, consistent cuts. Nicole has never given me a bad haircut and is always honest about what would work for my hair type and what wouldn't. I don't color it (yet), but when I do I know I'll be in great hands! I've been asked many times "who does your hair?" and I always say "Nicole @ Boston Color Group - she's the best!" Pros: Great Stylist, Reasonable Prices Cons: None! more

A Real Find! 10/5/2009

I've been seeing Nicole for about two years. My schedule is very erratic and I'm away for months at a time. BUT, I try hard to arrange things so that I somehow get by without somebody else coloring my hair. Nobody does it better. She does a great natural- looking job, which is what I want and have had trouble getting from others. Why do so many hairdressers want to color your hair so that it screams "I go to a hairdresser!!! This is not my real color!!!" The other great thing is that Nicole also cuts so well. I've had a hard time finding somebody who can cut AND color equally well. I'm very happy with BCG and Nicole. My only regret is that now she'll get busier and busier! She certainly deserves the award and all success - I'm just being selfish. Pros: Color and Cut Cons: Nope more

great highlights 10/5/2009

I have been seeing Nicole for years for highlights and to cut my hair. When I first started seeing her, my hair was fried from years of highlighting that did not really look natural. Now, my hair is much healthier and people are always surprised to hear that I color it because Nicole does such a good choosing the shades and blending them in that it just looks like my natural hair. Listen to Nicole when she tells you what color and hairstyles will suit your face shape and coloring - she is always right! Pros: great color and cuts, reasonable prices Cons: none :-) more

Nicole is wonderful 10/4/2009

I went in with a color that I hated and was depressed and crying all the time, as well as going to England three days later, Nicole took the time to make me feel that it was ok and she could fix it, which she did and I love my hair, I get compliments all the time saying it makes me look 10 years younger. Nicole is one of the best professionals I have ever met and trust me, I am very picky with my hair...I will NEVER go anywhere else. Her prices are reasonable and the salon is clean and very friendly......she is a gem. Pros: Best hair color and cut Cons: None, she is great more

Excellent Corrective Color 10/3/2009

I met Nicole two years ago as a natural brunette turned bleached blond. I had gone to two other salons advertised as "corrective color" salons asking for lowlights. Each time I left the salon, my hair was blonder and more damaged than before. After contacting Nicole, she listened, suggested a treatment for the damaged hair and my hair is now my natural color with subtle highlights. Her prices and very reasonable and everyone at the salon are very friendly. Thank you, Nicole! Pros: Everything Cons: No Cons more

The Best Haircut I have ever had! 10/3/2009

I recommend Nicole Cullinane to everyone! She is professional, accomodating, flexible, dependable and efficient. Since I became a client of Nicole's 5 years ago, I have been receiving compliments on my hair everywhere I go. People stop me on the street, in stores, in restaurants, and simply out of the blue to ask who cuts my hair! I even have other stylists complimenting that my cut is fabulous and lets my hair naturally fit my face and my style. For years I have looked for a stylist who is comfortable cutting curly hair, and confident in her abilities. Nicole certainly rises to the occasion...not to mention what an amazing person she is! Pros: Everything! Cons: None more


Forget wasting your money on Newbury Street. Nicole and the girls at Boston Color Group are the best I have found in or out of the city. First, there is no pretentious attitudes here, just genuine care and a desire to get you exactly what you want without damaging your hair. The cost is beyond reasonable, and Nicole is always willing to adjust schedules or fit you in at the last minute. I cant speak highly enough of the entire staff at Boston Color Group and it only gets better with the addition of a masseuse on premises. Do yourself and your hair one better and visit BCG for your next cut and color. You will not be disappointed. Pros: The BEST blonde you can ask for. Best service ever. Cons: The only one is that its a hike from Boston proper on the T more

The Best Around 10/3/2009

Nicole is a phenomenal hairdresser! She recently cut my hair short -- and I have gotten so many rave reviews. Her coloring ability is superior. She really listens to your needs, and then tells you what she thinks -- honestly and straightforwardly. She has a delightful personality, and is so down to earth. Pros: Fantastic results; great before and after-work hours more

Very happy customer 6/9/2009

Coming from California, I thought finding a good stylist would be a painful trial and error process. It turns out I was wrong. After reading the reviews on Citysearch, I decided to give Nicole a call. The best decision I`ve made . My hair looks great. I get tons of compliments. I am particularly pleased with my color. I am very picky on the shade of blonde I want and Nicole got it right the first time around. I was very impressed. Nicole is never overbooked and really listens to your needs. She is also detail oriented and devotes more time and effort on blowdrying my hair than most stylists I`ve been to. She also has a great personality, fun and down to earth. Going to the salon is always a great experience. Now the whole family is part of Nicole`s fan club and we are all very happy customers. Pros: clean salon, great hair cuts and colors Cons: none! more

Fantastic Colorist that really cares about the end result 12/6/2008

Nicole is the best colorist and hair stylist I have ever been to. She really took the time to understand what I wanted to achieve with my hair. Each time I see her for a touch up she makes sure I was happy with the last haircut/color and if I would like to change anything she listens and offers her expert advice to help clarify what I want so I get a great outcome EVERY time. She is very accommodating with her schedule and I love her hours! She is very pleasant and fun to talk to while having the service done- the time just flies by as she always has interesting and funny conversation. I have and will continue to highly recommend her to others. I feel her location is fantastic and prices are extremely reasonable as you are getting a New York City quality hair cut at a Watertown price- you can't beat that! Pros: location, price, salon is comfortable and relaxing more

Best stylist/colorist - Nicole 11/22/2008

I went to Nicole for a cut and color and she was the best stylist/colorist I have ever been to. The color was amazing and the cut is fabulous. All of my co-workers and friends told me they have never seen my hair look better and they are going to her now too. The salon is clean and the hours are very convenient. I wouldn't go anywhere else! Pros: Nicole is the best stylist/colorist I have ever been to. She is so friendly and down to earth. I wouldn't go anywhere else now that I have found this salon! more

Terrible experience 11/10/2008

Don't let this place color your hair. I have light brown hair, went into this salon to have my roots done. When done noticed it was very dark but since I had not had my hair dried I just thought it was dark because it was wet. When it dried it was almost black. When I called to complain I was told by the stylist she thought she would just change the color as she thought it might look better I did return to the salon to have it corrected but left with my hair completely streaked with dark brown and light brown strips all over my head. I had to have it redone in another salon. more

The Best! 8/14/2008

Nicole is absolutely the best at what she does. I relocated to Cambridge from New York and was quite anxious about finding someone who would be able to color my hair the way I liked it, which is a bright shade of red with different high- and low lights. Definitely unusual and not an easy job, and I knew it. I found Nicole by driving by her salon and then checking out the reviews on Citysearch and decided to talk to her about my hair. She gave me a long (free) consultation and she also agreed to talk to my former hairstylist to get a feel for what had been done in the past, etc. I was totally impressed. I've been a client for over a year now, and I get compliments on my hair color all the time, both from friends and strangers. Nicole also does a fabulous job of cutting my hair, which is long with layers throughout. Finally, her prices are completely reasonable for a good stylist. Period. On top of everything else, the salon is totally gorgeous, so you get to enjoy that as well. Nicole is also super-friendly, and I always look forward to my appointments, which can be scheduled early in the morning, relatively late in the evening, and any time in-between! I highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking for either getting their hair colored or cut or both! Pros: Great color & cut, great atmosphere, super-friendly service, reasonable prices, flexible schedule Cons: None more
