I had been looking for a great hair cut for over 5 years...and after getting a bunch of mediocre to lousy ones i finally googled ""Best Hair Cut in Boston"" a while back. Charles Maksou's name popped up and I tried him -- it was the single best salon experience of my life! He can now be found at this salon and I enthusiastically encourage you to head over there. I just went it and like my new cut so much I was inspired to write a review. I'm in my early 30s and have worn my hair curly and straight, long and short, over the years Charles has cut it -- and I've literally loved every new style he's given me. I've sent my mom (60+ short hair) to him, and various friends (from hair that is curly/frizzy to an Asian friend with long straight locks). Charles is such an artist that he expertly handles all hair and any styles. I've seen him cut men, too -- including one who (on my last visit) walked in with a long-ish mess which Charles cleaned up and left this man looking way cuter when he walked out than when he walked in. :) Charles uses this New York ""dry cut"" method which follows the natural shape of your head...so that he perfectly matches your style to you, personally. He's an amazing listener and gives such a boost of confidence -- by bringing out your best -- to anyone who sits in his chair. I couldn't recommend him highly enough -- he's helped me love my hair. No small feat!
Pros: You feel like a rockstar walking out; boost of confidence and great new locks that always get compliments
Cons: Because he's popular sometimes you have to wait 15-20 minutes, but there's coffee/magazines, make-up samples, etc
