Editorial review from Citysearch 9/17/2013

I've been going to Charbel for almost 2 years now. He's by far the most consistent haircut I've gotten. As a true professional, he also offers hair care tips/advice to maintain the health of my hair weeks after the appointment. I highly recommend Tamo! A+ more

I will never go anywhere else, my hair has never been healthier or looked better! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/11/2013

I live in Maine and come to Boston specifically to get my hair done at Tamo! Charbel is beyond amazing - he is a truly talented stylist and has literally transformed my hair. I have never received a better haircut - ever. The color and highlights came out so beautiful and natural looking - like I was just simply born effortlessly fabulous. This is a gem of a salon. more

I love Tamo! I live in Texas and when I travel to Boston, I absolutely have to get my hair done by Charbel. Prices are great and my hair always looks fantastic. My hair has never looked so good and healthy. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/10/2012

Tamo Salon is the absolute best! Not only do you leave Tamo Salon with an amazing hairstyle - you leave knowing that you will be coming back because you have found the best salon in Boston. On top of the great service, the prices are extremely reasonable and the location is so convenient (right outside South Station). Charbel is a hair magician! He is so talented, professional, and accommodating. He's transformed my entire look, making my hair more healthy and beautiful than I ever imagined. I am so glad that I've found Tamo Salon - I highly recommend that you check it out! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/3/2012

Become a client now before Charbel becomes a celebrity himself. Absolutely WORLD CLASS. I'm a former Vidal Sassoon client who now won't go anywhere but Tamo Salon (I save a fortune by the way!!). Their waxing and mani/pedi services are terrific as well. Convenient location around the corner from the Red Line at South Station. In between two of my favorite restaurants ... Sorriso & Les Zygomates. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/28/2012

Charbel is great. I've been getting my haircut by him for the past 6 years and now wouldn't get cut by anyone else. I was really excited when Charbel opened up his new place and it's always nice catching up with him. I've never left with a bad haircut and am confident that he wouldn't let me leave with one either. By far the best around. more

Best Salon in Boston! 4/12/2011

This hidden gem is the best salon in Boston! They carry and work with Aveda products, though not exclusively, so you have your pick. Niki is not a hairdresser nor a stylist - she is an artist. It sounds kind of unbelievable, but it is the honest truth. I am a young professional woman, I care about my appearance and have always looked for the best for my hair. I thought my hair was too fine, too limp to look full or shiny without tons of product... until I met Niki. It was all in the cut and they even taught me a few tricks with Aveda products that I was unaware of (after using Aveda products exclusively for the past ten years I am usually the one to be teaching the tricks). I love my hair and have received so many compliments. I also recently sent a male co-worker to Niki for a haircut and he looks so much better! He has received a ton of compliments on his new hair. I also went to Niki Salon recently for a manicure. Also the best manicure ever. I got a French one and it lasted for over a week! It looked amazing and everything was so clean and sterile. I usually only get a paint job because the whole cleanliness thing kinds of worries me, but when I saw their setup I knew it was going to be great and it was! Thank you, Niki!! more

Nikki at Nikki?s South Street Salon rescued me, yet again. 2/4/2011

Nikki at Nikki?s South Street Salon rescued me, yet again, today. In 1 hour, she had my hair exquisitely colored and shining with an excellent cut. This may sound relatively simple for an excellent hair stylist, however, the reality is that I had cut my own hair a few days ago and it was disastrous!! Nikki somehow was able to repair the damage that I had done AND make it look fabulous! Thank you, again & again, Nikki. I will be back soon (but not too soon as I know from experience how long your superb cuts last) :-) more

Excellent Find 12/1/2010

I have been going to the same barber in my home town for the last 6 years and never thought that I would change. However, a new job, a new schedule, and a new home address made getting to my usual place nearly impossible. Luckily, after a few disappointing tries, I have finally found a place that exceeds my expectations in every way. Niki's is without a doubt the greatest salon that I have ever been to. The service is amazing. The quality is second to none, and the results speak for themselves. Each and every time that I walk out of Niki's I know that I look better than when I walked in. And that's really all I can ask for. more

I was really happy with how Stacey cut my hair 7/9/2010

Stacey did a great job cutting my hair, and she really spent a lot of time styling it afterwards. It really looked great and I got many compliments that day. Pros: Very clean, convenient location more

I Love Niki! 4/11/2010

I have been going to Niki for over 18 years. I travel from Southern New Hampshire just to have her cut and color my hair. EVERYWHERE I go people compliment me on my hair. I have been through many lengths with Niki from VERY short to shoulder length permed! I walk out of there with my head held high every time! Pros: everywhere I go I get compliments on my hair more

Amazing! 2/3/2010

Amazing salon with great service. more

One GOOD Find! 3/5/2009

I constantly move because of the type of job I have. It?s always been a struggle for me to find a hair dresser that knows how to cut my hair. If the person cutting my hair does not consider the shape of my head and face, I would usually end-up looking like Forrest Gump and that would mean staying indoors for the next couple of days. Last month, I bumped into Niki?s Salon when I was having lunch across the street. I had her cut my hair and was very pleased with her work. I was actually smiling and was very happy of the outcome of my haircut. She is heaven sent to me. A month after, I came back for another haircut just to make sure her work is consistent. Sure enough she made me happy again. I could see myself as a regular customer now as long as I get to keep my job here in Boston. I highly recommend her. She knows exactly what she?s doing and she has all the experience you?re looking for. more

Amazing hair styles! 10/8/2008

I would thoroughly recommend Niki?s South Street Salon for cutting edge (excuse the pun) hairstyles and new processes you won?t experience anywhere! Pros: State of the art Cons: parking more

Best hair stylist ever 7/31/2008

I stumbled across Niki a couple of years ago while looking for a new stylist. Needless to say, I wouldn't go anywhere else to have my hair cut (and colored). Recently I mentioned to Niki that I was frustrated by my hair during humid weather - and she suggested straightening my hair. I decided to give it a try (even though I always thought of my hair as being straight) - and it was the BEST thing I've ever had done! My hair has never been so soft, shiny and manageable - even in the incredible humidity. (The humidity is 89 percent as I am writing this.) As far as I am concerned, Niki is not only a great stylist, she is also an artist! more

Charles Maksou - Best Haircut in Boston 7/22/2008

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 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 more

Best cut I ever had 7/2/2008

Best haircut I ever had. I went for a walk in and I was quite impressed with how maticulously the cut was done. The lady who cut my hair took her time and paid a lot of attention to the style I was describing. For once I walked out of a salon not thinking my hair ended up too short. I have a new hair cut place! more

Best Hairdresser ever! 10/11/2007

I have just moved into this neighbourhood and I can honestly say that Nikki gave me the best hair colour and blowout I have ever had. She is extremly professional and takes her time and gives your hair lots of love!! My hair is looking the best it ever as or ever will for that matter! Rachel who also works there has given me a facial and done my nails and really is brillant at what she does. Both are very professional but also very friendly and can't do enough for you! Pros: Take time and really look after you more

Niki South Street Salon 7/20/2007

I've been a loyal customer of Niki's for almost five years now. When I came to her the first time, I was coming with a ""I hate my hair and always will"" perspective. I have thin, bodyless hair and have always detested it. Niki changed all that and now I get compliments on my hair from complete strangers. Niki give THE BEST BOB cut in all of Boston. She understand geometry and cuts your hair to look good with the shape of your face. Not only that, my hair looks great when I leave and it stays looking great for a long time afterwards - her cuts last forever and retain their shape. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my hair. I highly recommend Niki. Pros: Best bob in Boston more
