Boston's BEST Stylist = Sam Alter – Sam has literally changed my life. You may think I'm exaggerating, but if you have hair like mine...you'll understand. I've had dirty blonde curly/frizzy hair my whole life that I've relentlessly colored and heat styled; damaging it to what I though was beyond repair. I wish I could post a before and after picture of my hair and show what Sam has done for me over the past year. I now have an AMAZING head of blonde, smooth, and healthy hair. I have never had a stylist that has made me as perfectly blonde without making me look bleached or fake. I have had the Keratin treatment done twice by Sam and I SWEAR BY IT...I can now get out of the shower and just go!! No more hours of blow drying and straightening for me!!! And the best part is, it lasts a worry free 6 months! I absolutely adore Sam; he is outstanding!
THE BEST!!! – Ingrid!! is the best.. I flew all the way from the UK to get my hair done with Ingrid, she did the Keratin Complex hair treatment on my hair and that lasted me 6 months, she so meticulously straigthened each section of my hair, GOD she's amazing.!! I would recommend her to anyone.. She is simply the best.. will be flying back to Boston to just get my hair done with her..
She recommended the right products to use and all the after care instructions well explained.
One of the finest salons I've been to,. the rest of the staff were very friendly.
Ali is the absolute best!!! – So I have been to Ali twice now, and she is amazing. I walked in to the salon last year with bleach blonde hair down to the small of my back. She has since cut it it a edgy-chic long bob/shag fusion that I love..... AND dyed it back to my original color. She looked at a picture I printed out from facebook, and somehow managed to dye it back to the exact original shade. All from a picture she looked at for about a minute. Months later, I cant even tell where the new growth is. It is the exact match. She is AMAZING. I will never go to anyone else ever again as long as I live in or even near Boston. Plus she gives you great styling tips as she cuts and colors your hair. She has definitely taught me some valuable tricks. 5 stars all the way!!!!!!
Ali Elliot will amaze you with her Technique and Knowledge – Ali Elliot is my new official Hair Stylist. I have known about Ali for a few years however I did not make my way into her chair until a month ago. Reason being? My fear of letting a stylist who was not African American touch my hair. Unfortunately this fear of mine had held me back from achieving the best hair style ever! Ali is an extremely knowledgeable and competent stylist who knows exactly what she is doing with all hair types especially "Black" hair. I have been to see Ali twice in the past month and during those visits she has "Relaxed","Blown Out", "Highlighted", "Cut" & "Styled" my hair. (with NO issues) I couldn't be more impressed with the results. I personally believe that the difference between Ali Elliot and the many other Hair Stylists I have seen is that Ali continuously keeps up with her education and the latest trends. I could go on and on about my experience at John-Pierre however the bottom line is this,..Ali knows exactly what she is doing and even better than that, She does amazing work.. I now have a "High Fashion" cut that I would never have had the confidence to get if I had continued to see the stylists I had been going to. My walk is different, my attitude is different, and yes people, I feel amazing! Make it a point to visit Ali Elliot at the Jean-Pierre Salon on Newbury St. In Boston...... You'll be shaking your head wondering why you hadn't found her sooner and at the same time smiling from ear to ear because you finally did! Oh and did I mention that Ali is a Redken Certified Design and Hair Colorist? She Rocks! ;-)
Best Hair Cut! – Most men want a barber to do thier hair, but when i say Ali Elliott gave me my best hair cut ever I am not exaggerating. I was very hesitant about going to a "salon" in fear of hair spray, gel, and hair color but from the moment Ali met me she put me at ease. She could tell i was in unfamiliar territory and quickly knew how to talk and handle me. We disscussed what i wanted then she made suggestions. She talked to me about color camo, and what kind of cut would work best for my face and lifestyle. I highly recommend Ali to all you guys out there who want the best but are afraid of "salons". Give her a try and you will be more than happy you did, I know I am !
Best Salon Ever! – I just moved to Boston and went to Jean-Pierre for a hair cut and color. I was absolutely delighted!! Sam gave me the best haircut and best color job I have ever had. I would strongly recommend going to Jean-Pierre!
Best Haircut in Boston – I am a Boston area student who has tried many Boston salons and finally found my home in Jean-Pierre. I saw Sam and he gave me the best cut i have ever had. I didn't even have to say a word he went to work right away. He was very informative on how to handle my hair too. He is great and i recommend him to everyone.
Great Salon – I've been a Boston-area student for 3 years now, yet before now I never got a cut in the city. I was afraid of outrageous prices and too-trendy hair cuts. I don't know why I waited so long! I asked a friend who always looks good where she went for cuts, and she recommended Sam at Jean-Pierre. Sam gave me the best cut I ever had - I was growing out a bob, and my hair had literally no shape. He knew exactly what to do and I now have a beautiful "growing-out" cut that actually looks awesome! He also gave me great tips about shampoos, blowouts, etc. Definitely go see Sam at Jean-Pierre!
Sam Alter Rocks! – I went to Jean-Pierre about 5 weeks ago for the first time. I went to Sam Alter because of all the great reviews I read about him. He was exactly what I had been looking for! He listens to what you want and makes smart suggestions. I came in afraid to go too short, but knew I needed to make a change. I told him that I wanted something fresh but nothing too dramatic because I'm a professional in a pretty conservative field. He suggested that I go shorter than what I had in mind so that it would be more of a change for me...AND...I absolutely LOVE my haircut. It looks amazing curled, straight and flipped out at the ends. It's so fun and still looks really good! I got so many compliments on it.
I've been all over Newbury and just haven't found the right salon or stylist. I've found the one! I'm not going anywhere else! And really, you can't beat the deal and the customer service! Oh and Sam is just so talented and I had so much fun chatting with him!
Great Cut – As a college student, I hadn't been able to find an affordable place in Boston to get a haircut. A friend referred me to Jean-Pierre, and I'm so glad I went there. Bethanie is an amazing stylist. She listened to all of my concerns, and gave me a cut that looks great and will be easy to maintain. Now, I won't have to go home to get a haircut; I highly recommend the salon, and will definitely be visiting Bethanie and Jean-Pierre again!
