Agostino Lombardi is the BEST! – Agostino Lombardi saved my hair!!! I had been going to another hairstylist for the past 6 years and after a friend mentioned my hair color was a bit off, I decided to try Agostino after reading about him in Allure Magazine. He totally fixed my color, so now my friends are raving about how healthy and shiny it looks. Not only did he fix my color, but is helping me grow out my hair- something I'd been asking my previous stylist to do for the past few years. Agostino is fabulous, and really paid attention to what I was asking for, which makes it well worth the one hour trip into Boston!
Knew what I wanted better than I did! – I read several favorable reviews for Studio for Hair, and since I had a coupon from my Collegiate coupon book I figured I would make an appointment. I decided to give my hair a full highlight and cut, and although I was quite unsure of what color highlight I wanted, Agostino was very helpful when I was deciding. He was able to just look at my hair's natural highlights and pick out an exact mix of hair color that matched it, only a bit lighter. He expertly treated my hair, and the result was fantastic. He also understood that I wanted a simple, ready-to-go style for my hair, and gave it a pretty and versatile cut. Not only was Agostino skilled, but he was extremely friendly and warm. The place itself was quite welcoming, which was nice for me as a new customer and it being my first time at a highly respected professional hair salon. It was well worth the money, and I felt absolutely no buyer's remorse. I recommend Agostino and his salon to anyone and everyone!
Terrible Customer Service, can never get ahold of, won't let you choose your stylist – So I have gone to this salon once before because I read such great reviews. Got my hair cut by one of the stylists. Didn't particularly like it, but it wasn't bad. Decided I would like to give it one more go with a different stylist. So first of all, I can't get a hold of the place, it keeps saying this person's mailbox is full. I can't find their hours anywhere so i don't even know when I should call. I finally get a hold of the salon and I'm told that since I went there before I have to go to the same stylist. That it is company policy even though I didn't like my first haircut. Needless to say, with the most terrible customer service and the only barely acceptable haircuts I will never go there again and will never recommend it to anyone.
Loved Agostino so much I flew him to my wedding in Mexico – I love Agostino so much that I flew him to my wedding in southern Mexico. I lived in Boston for two years and he was the best thing about Boston. He is fantastic and cut and color, and taught me a lot about both, and he is a fantastic friend as well - I still send him Christmas cards, 4 years after I left Boston. He offered great advice about new cuts and colors that might work for me, and was very patient as I chose my hairstyle for my wedding and tried to make it work (I have very straight hair and wanted it wavy, which took a lot of doing!). I recommend him highly.
Best color & haircut ever! – I heard about Agostino from a friend who raved about him. I've always liked her hair, so I gave him a shot and i absolutely loved the color and cut that he gave me. I have recommended him highly to my friends.
Not What I Expected! – I read all the reviews before coming here. It sounded great! I just got a wash, cut, and style with the $25 coupon. Agostino cut my hair in 10 minutes. I wondered why it was so quick but then I realized that he had another client waiting for him even though I had an appointment. I asked for layers and a trim on my bangs. My hair looks so plain jane like it was just trimmed by hair cuttery. I'm so disappointed.
Beyond Newberry Street – The very fact that I happily travel from the Cape to have my hair done by Antonio should be testimony enough, but I'll elaborate. I went to him about four years ago to correct a disastrous color and I've never looked back. He is truly an artist...both with color and cut. He "gets it" with a minimum of discussion, has a savvy sense of design, and masterful control of color. On top of these credentials, he is a really wonderful, funny, and warm person. He is punctual, generous with his time, and always interested. The test of a great haircut and color, is how many people ask where you get your hair done. On the Cape, that is followed by, "but of course you don't get it done here, I'm sure." Five stars for this salon!
fabulous – I absolutely love the salon I went to get highlights done by antonio but I wanted them to look natural and he did an amazing job I loved them. He also does great hair cuts to but over all he is a really nice person as is everyone else in the salon and I would definitely recommend this salon to anyone and everyone
Fabulous highlights and great haircut!! – I heard about a hairdresser called Agostino Lombardi from one of my coworkers. She's always raving about what a wonderful hairdesser he is! I finally made an appointment and he was everything my friend said he was! I was impressed with the way he got to know my lifestyle and appearance and he used that to pick a color and haircut that enhanced my skin tone and facial features. What I also liked was that he actually listened to me when I told him what I would like my hair to do. I reccomend him highly!!
Antonio is the best – I've gotten the best color ever since meeting Antonio in 2005. People are still commenting on the gorgeous shiny brown he gave me after I "cheated" and got a horrible, dull, blond/orange color. He takes the time to really advise you, he's charming, attentive and extremely talented. I feel amazing when I leave - like I really look my best.
