Editorial review from Citysearch 9/14/2013

Great place, I just cut my hair last week, and I was very happy with the feedback from my friends. I got the hair style that looks very professional. I'll continue go there for further hair cut. And the eye brow trim is also wonderful. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/18/2013

I am not a high-demand client. For me this is about as perfect as I've ever had for a haircut/salon/stylist.\r \r I am half-Chinese, and like to have a fairly typical male haircut. Other stylists in Boston and other cities have such a hard time getting it right. But I described what i wanted to her, showed a couple pictures for comparison, and she took care of it. No kidding, in about 15 minutes of cutting, she nailed it. She even added nice texture and edging.\r \r But wait, there's more. I've never had to wait for a haircut at this place. Sure, that can be interpreted as bad because there aren't enough clients. But I don't care if there are 0 or 1000, if they cut my hair well, I'll go back. The most people I've ever seen in there is 1 other client. But that just means I never have to call ahead or wait for a haircut.\r \r But wait, there's more. Before getting your haircut, her assistant gives you a 10-minute shampoo and scalp massage. It's very enjoyable. It's not a luxury back massage with bells and whistles. But they take their time to clean your hair, massage a few points on your scalp and neck, and then a rinse.\r \r All for $25 (for men).\r \r So here's the summary: fast, friendly hair-cut, done right the first time, with a little shampoo perk. If you're in a rush, you can be in out and gone within 30 minutes. How can you beat that? more

Excellent Japanese hair-straightening at a very fair price 9/8/2009

Tammy and her staff are great. I have gotten the Japanese hair-straightening twice, and both times have been very pleased. Tammy does not keep you waiting, devotes her time and attention to you entirely, takes her time in processing your hair, and insists on completing every step thoroughly and to perfection. Her assistant, Ben, also does a fantastic job--very diligent and patient. Ying gives a shampoo and massage to die for. This is an outstanding, well-managed, full-service salon in a T-accesssible location (bus, Orange and Green lines). The prices are very reasonable and in fact, well below Newbury Street. The long Japanese hair-straightening sessions would be less of an ordeal, however, if you could bring your laptop and surf the net with wireless; this is something Tammy is looking into. For a ""champagne style on a beer budget""--try Tammy at the Ecco Beauty and Hair Salon. You won't be disappointed! Top-shelf establishment. Pros: Experience, training, expertise, good service and location Cons: no wireless access for the laptop more

great place for facial 3/14/2009

I had done facial massage for many years while i was in China, I really enjoyed it. However, since I came over to the US, it took me many years to finally find one place that I love, since the massage technique in those salon was not comparable at all to what I had in China. I have been to Ecco for the past 15 months for facial massage, Tammy is not only good at facial massage, she's also very friendly and super fun to talk to. I haven't cut my hair there, but I knew that my friend loved her hair style so much once she stood in front of the mirror after her hair cut there...... Pros: great service with reasonable price, Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

came out with fried hair. 9/28/2008

NEVER GO HERE. Pros: NONE. oh wait, maybe the location. Cons: tammy does not listen to you - get extra inches cut off, fries up your hair, and smacks you in the head with the comb when styling more

Great service, price is fair, close to China Town T stop. 9/22/2008

I went to Ecco Beauty Hair Salon to do my hair straightening this weekly, It came out shinier and straighter then what I expected. The price is fair with the great services, I know all of the other hair salon would charge $100 per hour to do the Japanese Straightening, but Ecco Beauty Hair Salon only charge the flat rate of the services, and the price is lower for other salon in this area. more

Avoid 8/12/2008

I had an OK cut here. It was pretty pricey for a simple cut ($30!) and when I checked my credit card statement, I saw they added on $5 without my approval (I had already added on tip!). I am currently in contact with my credit card company with a complaint. Untrustworthy!!! Pros: no wait Cons: overcharged, sloppy atmosphere more

Complete disregard for request 8/8/2008

I went in to Ecco for a trim and came out with 5 inches missing from my hair, and the back looking like it was put through a shredder. I specifically asked for 1/2 inch off the back, and some angling around the face. I don't know what the person was thinking when he layers the back and took 1/2 inch of the front. I stopped him half way when I could see he wasnt doing what he wanted, but assured me he only took 1/2 inch off. Pros: no wait Cons: disregard for what the customer asks for more

Chinatown? So what! 6/29/2008

I found Ecco by doing a salon search on craigslist and found that they were advertising the abominably expensive bio-ionic Japanese hair straightening system for more than $200 LESS than any other local competitor who does this service. For some reason I was hesitant about the Chinatown address, but I don't know why, since I am just as wary of Newbury Street locations. I am so thrilled that I went, because they are really phenomenal, from a customer service standpoint as well as their technical abilities. Tammy is the owner and she has been trained in London and New York. She took her time with me, has a good sense of humor, and is very professional and serious about her work. She has a thick Chinese accent, but speaks perfect English. They are right off the Orange line across from the Chinatown T-stop, which makes them even more convenient since I was coming from JP. It took me less than twenty minutes to get there. Pros: Very Reasonable Prices, Large Array of Services Cons: Need better advertising strategies more

Back Bay's Best 2/6/2008

I got my hair cut there last week and it was one of the best experiences. The woman started off with a shampoo/massage that actually put me to sleep. I woke up very relaxed and sat there as she cut my hair. It came out exactly the way I wanted it to. Tammy is the best! This is easily the best and most affordable spot in the back bay Pros: stylist, skills, massage Cons: parking more
