My first impression was ruined. Always confirm your appointment before coming! I had an appointment with Frank Xaviar and good thing a called to confirm - I wasn't on a list after I scheduled appointment with Frank few days before. The only one who could help and reschedule (unfortunately, to another stylist) - very polite and friendly receptionist, - but not Frank by himself - he simply hung up the phone, when I was trying to figure out this problem. Never had this poor sutomer service and disrespect with the best salons in Europe, US and Canada, but this is not as right way to start viziting particular stylist and salon at all.
Brilliant colorist!! Relaxing environment!! – I've been going to Yasmin for my blonde hair for around 15 years! She's not only a brilliant, gifted colorist but is also warm and welcoming, always pleasant and calm (which is great for a neurotic, blonde, mane-obsessed Leo like me!).
Over the past 15 years, I've tried many different shades of blonde: wheat, platinum, golden and ash. Yasmin has delivered every time. And we're not just talking about my roots! She puts in complimentary and contrasting highlights as well. She can do ANYTHING! If you want classic color, she can do it. If you want chic and high-style, she can do it. She listens carefully to what you want and thoroughly discusses her color recommendations for you based on your hair cut, hair condition, skin tone, personal style, profession and lifestyle. Before I knew Yasmin and lived in NYC, I tried all the hot salons in NYC, including Louis Licari, Garren and Frederic Fekkai. Yasmin blows them all away.
I always tell Yasmin that she is far too modest about her achievements in hair color. A former model, she has studied with THE Vidal Sassoon himself in London, worked alongside her famous cousin Edward Tricomi of the Warren-Tricomi salons in NYC (Yasmin's maiden name is Tricomi), and styled celebrities like Cindy Crawford and Kim Basinger. She was one of the first practitioners of Japanese Hair Straightening and even went to Japan to learn the technique from the product manufacturer. Bazaar Magazine named her the best colorist in Boston a few years back.
Besides her dazzling creative talent in hair color, Yasmin herself is simply a joy to be around. From the minute you walk into the salon she greets you like a long lost friend, asks you how you liked your last color and offers you a beverage and a magazine. She is warm, genuine, and down to earth, funny and engaging. And she knocks herself out to give you the best hair color you've ever had. Even when she was pregnant, she was always calm and professional, never letting what must have been a physically uncomfortable experience get in the way of her artistry, professionalism and calm, friendly demeanor.
Yasmin, put simply, rocks!!!!
Great Stylist – Yasmin Tricomi is the best hairstylist I have ever had. I found her thru city search when she was a stylist at Melt Spa. I am pleased with her haircuts and she colors the sides of my greying hair so delicately no one knows that I do this , which I am happy about. i recently read a review about her and can tell you that she was the happiest pregnant woman I have ever met as she tried for years to have children . I find the person to be insulting and honestly good for Yasmin for not allowing that Knight to ruin hers!!!!!!
On A Street Flooded w Salons, This One Floats Above The Rest – I have been a Yasmin disciple for many years now; sporting over a dozen of her meticulous cuts and myriad shades of rich, vibrant color. Even when work has left me residing in other cities, Yasmin has taken the time to help me find a new stylist and has even been kind enough to send them her formulas.
Yasmin is an outstandingly talented stylist, that has taken many years of experience with all types of hair, her own skillful precision-styling, and innate talent and let it steer her career to the point of being one of Boston's best.
If you want edgy, she can give you edgy. If you want classic, she can give you classic, or even a modern twist on one. She is also great listener, very bubbly and who, although intuitive and creative, will never let her ideas overshadow what her client truly wants.
This is someone who understands what makes people happy, continuously educates herself on techniques and trends, and strives to aid in doing that by giving her clients her best--always.
Yasmin is a treat, and we all deserve a few of those.
*Note: She is brilliant when it comes to all shades of blonde. I have naturally dark hair, and whenever I have chosen to weave some lighter strands in, whether it be gold, caramel or something a bit brighter, she is on point: no damage, no brass.
And lastly, I find it particularly fishy that someone would feel so passionate about their distaste for a particular stylist, yet didn't get their name correct, and waited months to post a review.
Worst experience of my life – I am not one to take the time to rate anywhere, whether good or bad but after this experience I just had to. I have lived in Boston for over 10 years and have always gone to the same hairdresser, unfortunetly he decided to retire and gave me a reccomendation of this place with a guy named Frank. When I called Frank was not available and I really needed my hair done. I was referred to this woman named Jasmin, who I'll have to say was the worst hairdresser I have ever had!! She totally ruined my hair!! She was so loud and obnoxious and rushed through my appointment, she was very pregnant at the time and just seemed plain miserable...but that was no excuse to treat a client like that.. hopefully by now she has had her baby and is no longer working there!!! This experience happened a while ago and my hair still doesn't look right, If your looking for a new Stylist, stay away from this place!!!
Best Haircut Anywhere – I've been going to Frank at L'elegance for years and years. Without question, Frank is the best around. Excellence haircut and when you're in his chair, his undivided attention is on you. Besides being extremely talented, he's also a very nice person. Bravo to Frank!
