Unfriendly Staff – I will never go back. The woman who cut my hair (sorry I don't remember a name) and the woman who took my money at the end of the appointment were both incredibly rude. The haircut wasn't even that great. Definitely not worth the high prices.
My GF go to spot – This is my girlfriends pride and joy of Boston. We lived in NY for years, and she used to only get her haircut when she came back to Boston, so she could go to Kayla at Blu Salon. My babe looks hot as ever when she leaves Blu Salon, so I had to write a review. Wow!
I love my Hair!!! – I was tired of my old stylist not giving me any new suggestions so I looked up some salons and ended up at Blu. This salon was cool and relaxing. The staff made me feel totally comfortable. My appointment was with Kayla and she gave me two totally different takes on what I could go with for a new style. I felt comfortable enough to let her decide and now I have a look that is all my own! Thank you so much I love it!!!!!
small,chic overpriced so so quality – This is a very small hip salon on Newbury st. It was overpriced. I didn't think the work was greater then any where else.
Great experience at BLU Salon – I actually seleted this Salon on City search :) . I live in Europe and was coming to Boston on business and needed a cut and color. Sooo, I made an appt at BLU not know who would cut my hair ( it was Erin)
Well , to make a long story short I told her what I wanted and she actually suggested something a bit difference regarding color. Well, she was right and the result was great in addition to cutting my hair exactly as asked. Nice to know there are still people who are professionals and make the right calls when working with customers especially hair..
Great cut and color!!
Best Hair Coloring – Actually, I don't know if all the stylists provide the best color, but mine does. I followed my stylist, Layla, from Niall Roberts to Blu. She's the best. When I moved to RI for a few years, she gave me my color formula so I could get the same look there. I'd follow her anywhere.
One of the best salons! – I love Blu Salon. My sister recommended this place to me and I loved it. Erin (the stylist) did a great job with my haircut. She understood exactly what I meant and showed me different ways to style my hair. The hair treatment was fabulous too! They also do not pressure you into buying hair products; but I was impressed with the ghd flat iron they used on me that I ended up buying one at the salon.
Too bad I don't live in Boston anymore...but I'll if I'm ever in the area I'll make sure to make an appointment. Worth going back to!!
meh – i hate to admit it but im the type to judge a book by its cover... i walked past blu during xmas last year and it seemed pretty cool, so i decided to try it out. first off, the employees at blu seem to have some real attitude problems. they just all seemed really snooty and like they were better than you! my stylist didnt really seem to listen to me.. my color faded more quickly than it ever has (pink highlights) even though she spent what seemed like forever doing a treatment that she said would last for a while, and my cut was very so-so. overall, not impressed at all. definitely not worth what i paid.
Best salon in Boston – I have been a client at BLU Salon since the summer of 2004. They continue to achieve my very utmost expectations and I always leave this salon feeling like a million bucks. My stylist is always very knowledgable about products for my hair 's needs (I have very curly hair and like to wear it straight), and always gives me her recommendations and tips in order to maintain my hairstyle until my next visit. In addition, I've also had excellent manicures and eyebrow shaping from Victoria who also has achieved several Best of Boston awards for her exceptional services. This salon is also very clean and comfortable and I would highly recommend it.
Pros: Goldwell color, not too harsh on hair
