Treat yourself to a better place. 3/15/2011

NEVER go there. I got as a present buy with me coupon for partial highlights and blow dry for $75, Nice deal. Usually I am going to a Newbury Salons and pretty happy with their work. And this is damn Highlights ?it is so hard to mess this up. I am not picky crazy customer. I worked in a customer service industry and do understand what is it take to please a customer. Long story short. David (I think that was his name) did my highlights. They come out too light and were for away from the roots. Just not a good color ? can happened to anyone. I nicely told about it to receptionist and she rescheduled me for another appointment. When I come in (within couple day) she told me I have to pay another $160 for fixing my highlights. $160 ?????? more??? Is this a joke? Stylist David (or whatever his name) for some reason wasn?t available at the time of appointment either. When I asked when he will be available she said he is going for a vacation for next 3 weeks. Sweet. Such a co-incident. Luckily, there was an owner there as well ? Patrice her name. I was hoping she can help ? all I wanted is redo my highlights darker. Nope. She was trying to sell me $160 service. I am not the person who will argue. Thus, I left. I want to make sure that all their potential customers will know about this incident and think twice before going there. P.S. I stopped by on Friday and hey? I saw stylist Davis who had to be away for 3 weeks. So receptionist was lying about it as well. Thus, if you have buy with me coupon don?t go there ? waste of money. Treat yourself to a better place. Seriously. They will treat you bad because they are not making money of you. more

Should have called ahead 3/11/2011

Like many girls, I can be a little overprotective about my hair and where I get my haircut. I have lived in Boston for 6+ years and still ventured back to my favorite stylist 2.5 hours away. I have tried other places around Boston and kept striking out. SO when I found this Salon in Fall 2010, I was pretty excited. I had an excellent cut with Keisha and really liked the salon. She did really well with long hair/layers. When it came time for another cut in February 2011, I called the salon right away for my next cut and I was rather eager to return... only to be disappointed. I arrived for my appointment when the receptionist told me Keisha was running 15 minutes late. No problem. I settled down and started reading. 45 minutes later, I looked around, realized the receptionist was avoiding eye contact and being rather rude when I attempted to inquire how much longer it would be. I ended up waiting an hour and 30 minutes!! If I didn't have some place to be that night, that I wanted to look nice for, I would have definitely left. My haircut/blowout was still good. Keisha didn't talk the entire time she cut my hair and hardly made up for it all. Patrice Vinci herself was at the desk as I was leaving and she was actually condescending! Confused by the entire situation, I double checked they had my phone number on file before I left (and they did as all salons do!!). I then requested that if there is a future, to please call me and give me the heads up. I work in a service business as well, and surely understand that we can all be running late. The fact that they were running behind is fine. I totally understand. It is more how they handled it and made me feel. Just as I would have called ahead, I would have hoped they would have done the same thing to give me a heads up. Bottom line, the price for the haircut, doesn't match the service. more

Excellent Stylist: Stephen Bruno and Colorist: Annie Bulman 2/10/2011

Love both Annie and Stephen. They listen!!! They take the time to learn about you and how you work with your hair; most importantly, they're so good at what they do, you don't have to worry. I've referred 3 people already and they all love their hair. My daughter was never able to recreate how she looked when she walked out of a salon; but, now, it takes her no time at all and it always looks great. more

The Best Salon in Boston 8/27/2009

Awesome cuts, color, and blowouts! 5/29/2009

Dean and Rob are amazing. Dean has been working in Boston for years and is well known and well established. He spends lots of time getting to know your ""hair"" ensuring he gives you the best cut and color. Very talented. Pros: talented hair stylists; hip, upbeat salon Cons: Can't think of anything more

Thank God I found Patrice 4/17/2009

My hair is extremely difficult to color and highlight. It is extremely thick and grows so fast. It has been very difficult to keep it natural looking over the years. My daughter begged me for a couple of years to go to Patrice. My daughters hair always looks gorgeous, so I finally went after feeling a little bad about leaving the hairdresser I was with for some years. Pros: Nice to spend a couple of hours feeling special Cons: Can't think of a single one more

Rob was amazing! 4/10/2009

I booked an appointment after reading about the salon in a magazine article. the receptionist was extremely helpful and booked me with Rob. He was awesome. My hair has never looked so good in my life!!! i have finally found the stylist of my dreams! i have been telling everyone about him. p.s. he gives the best blowouts!!!! Pros: beautiful space, great staff, ROB! more

The best hair i've had in years 3/31/2009

Let me start by saying I am a very complicated person when it comes to haircut and hair color. I am so complicated I used to travel back home to Vzla and Mexico every 3 months just to get my hair color done because i did not trust anyone new. Having said that..I think you get the picture. I decide one day to listen to a friend and I went to see Patrice Vinci. Honestly I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair !!! She does highlights like you would not believe,she achieves the perfect color and makes it look super natural, I love them ! She also understood perfectly how I wanted the haircut which is not always easy with me because I have very thin hair. It makes me feel relaxed that I don't need to tell her much, she knows exactly what to do and always exceeds my expectations. Besides being super professional she is an amazing person, her as well as the staff always make you feel at home when you arrive. I say go, you will thank me for the advice!!! Pros: validated parking in front which is tough on Newbury Cons: i dont know what i'd do without her now more

Relaxed vibe, great color and cut 3/17/2009

I met Patrice Vinci when she opened her own salon a few months ago on the top floor of #91 Newbury. She does the most amazing blonde highlights and loves to blowdry long hair, giving my thin hair lots of body! She is so nice and focuses on you completely when you are in her chair. Everyone is super friendly. They don't have the Newbury Street salon attitude... they make you feel like you are their most important client they've seen today! Pros: A beautiful setting, super nice people Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

Overpriced barbershop haircut 2/24/2009

Way overpriced for a barbershop haircut. Husband went here for a while thinking he was getting a superior haircut now he goes back to the barbershop and gets a way better cut for a whole lot less. They do massage your head when they wash it but I don't see that it's worth the added expense. Save your money! Pros: Nice area, beautiful place Cons: Not worth the money for a haircut my mom could do and she wasn't good. more
