I Agree – It's the best salon I've been to in Boston - there is simply nothing else to say : )
great customer service – I went to Umi for a haircut model call. I had short hair, bob style, and so the only haircut that they could get from that was a pixie cut. Angela gave me the haircut. She was professional, had gentle hands, and did a great job. My friends say I look younger, but need my hair colored (I guess my natural hair color of dark blond is not that stylish). All stylists were personally supervised by the owner and two more senior stylists, and it looked like they were judging the American Idol contest (not cheesy, just very attentive to minute details). Also, at the reception there was Laura, the person who was responsible for model call (email her if interested, preferably with a picture of current look). She was professional, friendly, attentive and had a killer haircut. I have no problems with Umi, and would go there again, but only for model call, as I cannot afford anything over $50. I guess if the haircut was $400, I would not rate the experience that high, but then again the only thing I would buy for that kind of money would be a plasma TV or a trip to Mexico, so what haircut can compare to that?
Excellent Salon – Umi Salon was a perfect fit for me. It's ultra clean, the styling is meticulous, and the staff is thorough and perfectly accomodating.
Great – Umi is the salon visit in Boston. It's very expensive, but you will leave the salon feeling new and fresh, as I did. The stylists there do very good work and the place has a nice feeling about it.
It's great there... – Umi Salon is unique. You can tell they are serious about what they do, but they don't take themselves too seriously. The salon projects a cool and confident vibe and they deliver with really beautiful looks.
Yes, they are absolutely the top of the top... – Of all the stylists that have done my hair over the years, nothing will ever compare to the way Jeffrey Dauksevich cut my hair. He is the undoubtedly the best hairstylist I have ever sat with, period. Brilliant, talented beyond words, and so, so nice... I wish him all the best. He is a very special individual with a charm that is completely intoxicating. His salon is wonderfully calm , and he has the most beautiful and personable staff I have ever encountered. Umi Salon is the best of the best.
Creative and professional – I went to Umi Salon recently because I really needed to change my style. I could not have found myself in more capable hands. Everyone there was very nice, creative, great looking, and very professional. I was also impressed with the way they interact with each other, which was very composed and professional. It made me feel very comfortable and excited to be there. Best of all, I love my hair now!
The reluctant star of hairstyling. – I love Jeffrey. He?s the only hairdresser that ever had the finesse and poise to not make me feel like a ?client?. He has a clever way of making you feel like you?re the only person in the room, and he keeps you in his quiet, calm grip for the entire hour. He?s the perfect partner- even if it is only for a beautiful haircut.:)
Jennifer Saved My Color – And she did a beautiful blowdry. She was professional, attentive, and caring. I plan on returning for a new haircut- the styles being done there were absolutely beautiful.
Finally! I found a real hairstylist in Boston – I found Umi Salon when I was about to give up after so many disappointing tryouts at every ?best? and ?award winning? hairstylist/salon in the area. It?s surprising how hard it is to find a knowledgeable expert stylist in a city where there are so many salons. I found my dream coiffeur Jeffrey at his salon Umi. Of course he happens to be the most expensive haircut in town, but he is worth every penny. I loved him- he has an effortless way of doing everything, he understood exactly what I wanted without my having to explain myself, and my hair really is the best it?s ever been.
