Prompt, Perfect and Professional – The salon is an oasis admist Rte 128. I experienced the salon with Buy With Me coupons and was very impressed with the professonal and knowledgeable staff. I have regular massages and immediately knew that Gary was an experienced masseuse. He found and worked at every knot in my neck, back and arms. The massage was followed by Jennifer's facial, which was the most relaxing time of my week. However, what impressed me the most was that everything was on time and no waiting around, although sitting of the couch and enjoying the complimentary tea and cookies was nice , too. Check it out. A very nice place to visit and be pampered.
Great all around – Beautiful BIG place. I've seen Katie four times for my color and cut. Love her! Sweet girl. She has a good eye and great suggestions. She always seems to be busy. It's sometimes hard for me to get an appointment with her (good sign I guess) The last time I was there I also saw Jessica for my eyebrows and thought she was very nice and professional. Overall, I have always left feeling really happy. It's a little on the expensive side but i feel like its worth it.
Waneeta The Great – I can't rave enough about Waneeta at Daryl Christopher. She is the best. Her facials are relaxing and effective. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience that she will put to use to give you the best results and the best looking skin possible. Her waxing is absolutely exceptional too. I have never met anyone who is as talented and produced such dramatic results.
Waneeta has a spirit and warmth about her that makes for a wonderful experience each time I am in her capable hands.
I recommend Waneeta to anyone who wants impeccable service and opportunity to meet a great lady.
Anna is the VERY best – I followed Anna Costa from Emerge salon and spa, and I think that I would follow her just about anywhere! Anna is the consummate professional; she listens closely to her clients, and she gives input as necessary. And the icing on the cake? She's just a great person to spend a few hours with! I learn something new every time i am in Anna's chair!
I feel completely confident leaving my "look" in Anna's hands (and I'm picky!). She has helped me find the most flattering hair style I have ever had, and my hair is very healthy, which hasn't always been the case. The best part, however, is that Anna has helped me to find a color that is certainly not mine but looks like it is. People often ask me whether or not my color is natural, which, in my book, is the t rue test of great color. I've even been stopped in public (on more than one occasion!) with questions about where I have my hair done. You can't beat Anna!
Needs help – Had been a client for several years in Wayland and was satisfied but mainly kept going back because the location was convenient and I liked my stylist personally.
Unfortunately, over time I began to feel taken for granted,
my stylist would run behind, which seemed to happen more and more often, the prices kept going up and after spending literally thousands of dollars there over the years I felt I should have been given some type of consideration when I was unhappy with her service periodically, especially as a client who needed to come in every 4 weeks for color and cut. My stylist really did not seem to pick up on the fact that I was unhappy and paying seventy dollars for a haircut alone that she literally could cut/trim in ten minutes because of its style seems absurd in this economy not to do everything possible to keep a good client happy. I decided to look elsewhere and realized that other salons are much more reasonable and flexible with prices (root touch up is not charged for the full price of a color like it is at D.C every four weeks) I actually spoke with the "manager" about my concerns and never heard back, and therefore, that tells me they do not care enough to hold on to me as a client so I have moved on.
I stayed a year longer than I should have, but did so out of loyalty but was not given the same consideration and now I have found a new stylist at another upscale salon
who is far more reasonable.
You would think in today's economy they would bend over backwards to keep their clients happy, especially a long term client, and I hope the owner takes a look at what is happening in Wayland as I think a big part of it is a lot of unhappy people are working there. Doesn't seem to be a lot of training going on and I know several of my friends and neighbors have tried DC and moved on a lot sooner than I did.
I hope they get their act together, and remember at the prices they charge the client should always come first.
Amazing!!!! – Becca is amazing! I had boring hair and I wanted a change and not only was she patient with working with what I was looking to do it came out perfect! The color is absolutely gorgeous and the cut is exactly like the picture I showed her.
Thank you Becca!!
Above The Rest !! – Today I went to try a new 'do.
Considering most of Newbury Streets a Zoo!
I decided to aim higher than the the street's level view.
Above the zoo a friend had recommended me to see a stylist Becca of Daryl Christopher Salon & Spa !
I called to schedule a appointment and received a pleasant voice on the line instead on a machine who fit me in with Becca ! When I arrived at the Salon the receptionist greeted me with a Smile and came out from the desk to hang up my coat and offer me refreshments ! Then Becca came to introduce herself and I was instantly at ease with her stylish sensibility and calming consultation . We decided to introduce some soft highlights to brighten up my face and some layers for height! Ya !!!!! Every other stylist always wants me straight and monotone . By the end of the service not only did Becca follow through , but gave me the best blowdry too! For the first time I booked my next appointment and called my friend for lunch to celebrate my new "do!
Thank You Becca !
The best facial and body treatment – I’ve been using Olga’s services @ Daryl Christopher for a couple of years, and I can compare her work with other places I’ve been so far for facials and massages. Olga is a very knowledgeable esthetician with variety of skin treatments in her repertoire. Her strong and caring hands will make the lines on your face seem to disappear and will help you to restore the energy you’ve lost. Highly recommend for my friends and anyone who is looking for ways to relax.
WOW! – My wife's hairstylist (who she's been with for years) just moved to the west coast - and you would have thought the world was coming to an end. She put it off as long as she could but finally decided to give this guy Chris Kezik a chance at Daryl Christopher. I am so glad she did - when she walked out of the building she looked like a model! I have honestly never seen her look better, the cut is perfect for her, and you can tell she knows she looks GREAT! I'm not a big review writer, but I've gotta say - I'm glad my wife's former hairstylist moved away. Thanks Chris !
Becca McNab Rocks for Hair Styling – I was in Boston 2 weeks ago on business and was exploring Newbury St on my last day. Upon passing Daryl Christopher Salon I decided with some trepidation to have my hair styled before heading to the airport. I hadn't seen my husband in a week so wanted to look fabulous when I got off the plane.
The first thing you notice about Becca when you see her is her amazing sense of style. The next thing you notice is her warm and engaging personality... but the best part is how you look when you leave her chair... in a word FABULOUS! I didn't know my hair could look this good. I highly recommend Becca and only wish that she worked in my home town.
