Editorial Review – Sunny Newbury St. salon offers world-class cutting and styling services, including top-notch perming.
best student haircuts! – I just got my hair cut by Lisa and it looks awesome. She really took her time and gave me a fabulous graduated bob. She was nice and friendly and did amazing work. I cant believe she's only charging $16, this hair cut looks like it cost a lot more!! If you want to change your look you should definitly see her!
Finally got a good haircut! – I finally listened to my mom and tried Fiona at Vidal. I was imtimidated because as soon as the elevator opened, I was right in the salon. It was really busy but I didn't feel rushed. Trista shampooed my hair and talked about how good the haircuts are and how happy she is to be training there. I always thought it was a snobby Newbury Street salon and it's not. Everyone is obviously really into what they do and it showed. The only bad thing is that I got a parking ticket. But it was worth the compliments I got on my hair (even from my mother!)
ALANA IS NOT FOR EVERYONE!!! – Do you like sitting in a chair for hours with NO talking and NO moving and no one asking if you need a drink or a chance to get to the bathroom, and NO final rear view of your hair with a mirror. Do you like a haircut that is not what you asked for? Are trainee stylists meant to be surly and silent ? If only I had been forewarned!
Alana is the best! – I have been going to Alana for over a year now and she is fabulous! She always has new creative ideas for my hair and I have loved every cut she has ever given me. She is very professional and gives a great cut!
The best haircut ever!!! – I've just had my third haircut by Fiona and I couldn't be happier that I found her. She was really thorough when when she first talked about what to do with my hair. I always thought I had ugly hair and always wanted to hide my face. She totally turned all that around. She's really a perfectionist and easy to talk with. I asked about color and she introduced me to a colorist named Ritchie. He gave me some ideas and I felt no pressure to do any of them. Every other salon I ever went to always tried to sell me shampoos and other things that I 'had' to have. Fiona doesn't give me the hard sell on any of those things. I have never felt better about my hair!
horrible service – the staff is arrogant, and so rude to customers. I agree w/ the other review, that they could care less if you were there. For the price they charge, their service should be impeccable.
Best Colorists – The colorist Nicole is extremely skilled in her specialty of hair care. I trust her without question. She is professional AND has a wonderful sense of humor.
Nicole was traveling on business once, so I opted to try Lauren for highlights. The transition was effortless. Vidal Sassoon staff are meticulous in their work.
I would highly recommend either Nicole or Lauren. And they always know the best restaurants.
Don't be intimidated! – I have been going to Vidal Sassoon for the past 5 years. Never mind the receptionists. The Vidal Sassoon team of hair professionals are exactly that: professionals. If you want the best color job, highlights or hair cut, this is the place to be. I recommend... Colorists (aka Tinter/Permer): Kerry-Ann, Nicole, Richie. For Cuts: Maria, Johnathan. TIP: Student and child discounts available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If you don't want to spend the money, and are a little more flexible with your hair style - find out if you can be a house model by calling in and showing up at the salon on a Friday. If they can use you as a house model, they will have a trainee under HEAVY SUPERVISION to cut/color/perm your hair. It's a good idea to tip 20% of what the services would have actually cost.
great – I've been to Vidal Sassoon in San Francisco and of course here in Boston many times. People at Vidal Sasson are always very professional. I know when I go there, my hair is safe.
