FANTASTIC!!!! – I read all of the reviews about how fantastic Kathy was and decided to try Zoe Hair Studio for myself. I must say I was a little worried when I saw the storefront BUT once Kathy got her hands on my hair I was sold! She is AMAZING!!! I have super thick course hair that is very difficult to work with - I've NEVER been happier with a haircut than I was with what Kathy did! She is truly incredible - she is fast and efficient but takes the time to create a beautiful shape that works with your hair. Even better, I'm the mother of two young kids - I don't have time to play around with my hair in the morning - this cut makes it so easy - and it looks amazing! What an experience! GO GO GO to Zoe Hair Studio! You won't be sorry!!!
Best Haircut in Boston – I have been going to Zoe Hairsalon for about 8 years now and I get compliments from strangers. Last week I even got approached by a Vidal Sassoon student who needed a hairmodel. Unfortunately for her I just got a haircut the day before and was not ready for a another one. Long story short, Kathy is the best! I have never gotten a bad haircut, she does exactly what you want. She is also a great colorist and Van gives the best head massage ever. Service is friendly and the prices are reasonable for a great haircut. You can't be in a hurry though as she often does several customers at the same time. So take out some extra time, and relax...it is totally worth it. I have gone to several salons on Newbury Street and have never been as satisfied as at Zoe's.
Kathy is fantastic; great price!! – I checked out these fawning reviews and thought there was no way that this Kathy could live up to the hype. I was absolutely wrong! She listened to what I wanted, she took her time (she cut my hair while it was wet, dried it, and resumed cutting for probably twenty minutes to get the shape right), and she was very sweet. She was so gracious (thanking me multiple times for coming). The price, for cutting my very long hair (which reached the middle of my back) to a near chin-length bob, was $40, far cheaper than any salon downtown. The only downside of this salon is the location; Knapp Street is a dodgy-looking side street off Beach, and I probably would not be caught dead there after sunset.
Strongly recommend if you have coarse, frizzy Asian hair (like mine).
Cathy is the best! – I have been to Blue in Lexington and to various salons around Lexington and on Newbury street. None of them compared to the excellent hair cut that I had yesterday! Cathy knew exactly what I needed. She gave me the best hair cut since I moved to Boston. My husband loves the cut.
The salon is not what you would expect, but if all you want is a good hair cut, this is the place that you should go.
Best haircuts I have ever received! – Even though I'm only 19, I have been looking for the perfect layered haircut since I was 15 and I have finally found it with Cathy! She listens to you so well and is one of the most pleasant, happy people you will ever meet. The price is excellent compared to hair salons on Newbury St. I have recommended her to several friends who have also had great outcomes. Cathy is the best!
Cathy is an absolute god-send! – I have never found a hairstylist that I loved, but I adore Cathy. She consistently does a fabulous job with my hair and now I would never go to anyone else. When I first stepped into her shop I was a little sketched out by the location and the general appearance of the salon, but after awhile the place really starts to feel quite comfortable. Plus, I'm never the one to care about atmosphere as long as I get a quality product, esp. at such ridiculously low prices. For my last visit, I got a cut + color + 15 min head massage for $85 (I have medium-to-long length hair) and walked away feeling like a rock star. Cathy is fast, highly-skilled, and professional. I really can't recommend her enough. I think most people find this place through word of mouth. I got tipped off about the place from a friend who has been seeing Cathy for 5+ years. Word of advice: the salon gets busy so don't be frustrated if you have to wait 15-20 min even with an appointment, it's totally worth it and you'll be taken care of. Also, it's probably smart to go during weekday off hours.
Great Hair! – Cathy is brilliant! She does a fantastic job because she accounts for your face shape and hair texture before she does her magic. I've been going to her for 5 years!
She is so good that she's very busy on weekends and evenings, for best service visit during a weekday.
The best Salon ever! – I have been going to this salon for about 3 years. I travel for a living and I might not get there as often as I should. But Kathy and her staff are excellent, prices, scalp massage, customer service. For those of you that say she rushes and so forth. That is no true. I feel nothing but a star when I go to that salon. Sometimes I have three people at once doing my hair.
Yes I have had to wait but she does her best. I have gone to the very best salons throughout the world and in Boston and spent up to $650 on my haircut. But there the prices are reasonable and it is just a great place for all types of hair types and nationalities. And nothing compares to Zoe Hair Studio.
Kathi and staff keep up the good work,
Kathy is the scissor master!!! – Over xmas break I attempted to get a haircut at a snooty NY salon (tony& guy) after my hair consultation the stylist informed me that he would only trim the ends b/c the cut (style & line) that I had already (which was Kathy's masterpiece) was perfect and he didnt want to comprimise it for next time I saw Kathy. He went on about the precision even 2 months after the cut.
He informed me that I should never get my hair cut by anyone else but Kathy and for the resonable price I agree....
Be prepared for an interesting, fun & the best head massage ever!!. Great stress reliever after work. Salon is open late!!!!.
KATHY GIVES A, GLAM, FUNKY, PRESICE CUT – I have never gone to a salon where they take so much time to perfect your haircut. The shampoo head massage, the cutting, the flat ironing, then more cutting, then flat ironing, then cutting. For a cut and a color I'm there for 3 hours. I have never felt ignored when Kathy has left me with another stylist to wash/ blowdry/ flat iron my hair when she's cutting another client, they are just as meticulous. Kathy also is proficient in the Japenese Ionic Straigtening which is about 1/2 the price of other salons. It has changed the way I wear my hair everyday and I only have to do it twice a year. I travel an hour to see her each appointment. Kathy is a golden gem and it wouldn't be fair if I kept it a secret. Sincerely, Rachel
