Visited Amaci for the first time ever and was extremely impressed! I was set up with Michelle who was a sweetheart from the beginning. She was so thorough and detailed and showed that she really cares about her work. I had been nervous because I was coming in to fix a prior bad haircut and she did an amazing job! So happy I found a new stylist! Will definitely be back :)
The percentage does not make sense here. Amaci is not that good. I've been there for a cut and i was not thrilled with the results
I decided it was time to try a new salon, something close to where I work in Back Bay and stumbled upon Amaci Salon - I am so glad I did! (On a side note, after going to the same hairdresser in the North End for over 20+ years, I decided it was time to find somebody new after she decided to chop off all my hair, after I told her to cut 1 inch off, and gave me one of the worst dye jobs I've ever seen. Not to mention she had been very icy towards me the last several times I went there. Not good. It's been six months since I last went to her and she hasn't contacted me since - so much for loyalty!)
Amad, the owner of Amaci, has a no-nonsense, straightforward approach. He was very welcoming and re-assured me that he knew which color would look best for me - He definitely delivered. My hair looked and felt completely different - Thick, full and glossy. Suddenly I am getting compliments on my hair all the time! His staff was also very courteous, friendly and accommodating. Their prices are very reasonable and the location is ideal. I will definitely be going here from now on!!
Anna is such a sweet heart and she really knows how to do eyebrows. She was friendly, the eyebrow threading was quick, clean, and cheap. I brought in a picture of what I wanted and explained that I want dramatic angular eyebrows with a high arch, thick as possible. Before she started she drew out what was possible to do, and what she thought was the best eyebrow shape or my face. I always get scared that whoever is doing my eyebrows will end up thinning them out too much, but the way Anna shaped my eyebrows made them look thicker and more dramatic than before she did them. Also, she is very very good at trimming! It really added to the sharp look I wanted
Amazing! – So I went to Amaci Salon for the first time and was very nervous to change to a new salon. I requested Amad as my stylist because he had amazing reviews. I came into the salon and the receptionist was very welcoming when saying hello and the salon seemed very cozy but looked sleek and modern. She offered me coffee or water and had me put a robe and there was plenty of magazines available to read. I then proceeded to get my hair done with Amad and the result was the best color/cut I've ever received! I am so happy I finally got what I wanted especially since my old hairstylist just started not listening to me and seemed to be turning into someone who thought they were the better than everyone. All I can say is I will definitely be returning as Amad's regular client!
I can't understand the 5 stars – I walked in the door about 2 minutes before my appointment time. Waited while a stylist chatted with the receptionist, who was texting on her phone at the same time. Was given a smock when I asked for the ladies room, and told while I'm in there to change into this. Came out and sat in the waiting area. Man comes in the shop, receptionist says "She's in the bathroom, oh wait, she's right there." (If you've been here you know I was sitting right under her nose, and I was the only one waiting.) He leaves the shop for about 5 minutes, returns and takes me to the chair.
Long story short, the unprofessional beginning should have been warning enough. I sat through an hour long trim having to hear an awful lot about all of the stylist's issues he is dealing with.
When he finished the blow dry there was no checking of the cut. Not a single comb through or checking the bottom for length or strays.
My hair is not even. The bottom is about an inch longer on the right than the left. A simple check could have remedied that.
As for the cleanliness of the place, one woman was windex mopping the floors. (+) The restroom could use some updating, as in when you have to put in a new toilet paper holder, fix the old holes in the wall.
I have no idea how this salon has gotten an average of 5 stars after the experience I had. As for the reviews that say have a glass of wine, a coffee, even water, I was not offered any form of beverage at all. I just don't get it.
Think twice about having your hair done here.
Hello this is Amaci Salon, we wanted to apologize for the bad experience you had when you came to the salon. Unfortunately by reading your review we can tell who you had for a stylist and want you to know that he has been let go from the salon for acts that you have explained. If you'd like to come in and get your hair fixed we would be happy to take care of you. Again our sincere apologies, have a great day.
Anna She's amazing. – Okay so I went to her for my first time. , very quick, very clean, and talented.
I learned that not everybody can be a waxer. They need precision, steady hand, and good timing. Anna has all of that and she's a clean person which is a plus.
Because I'm a struggling college graduate, I opt for a different salon that charge $10 cheaper. To my surprised, not just they double dip the wax stick, they also leave me unclean, irritated and an ingrowed after my second wax. Even after I treat my skin with care after the wax, exfoliate before. I don't know what come to my mind, really!
Now I'm back with Anna, and my skin has no problem, and I'm very happy.
Be on time for your appt., :)
Wonderful Visit to Amaci Salon – I am very picky and apprehensive about who cuts my hair. I went to Amaci Salon this week for the first time, and I have never been happier. Amad is amazing at his job and really knows how to deal with hair and make the client feel beautiful. You can tell this is what he enjoys and was supposed to do. My hair feels so healthy and light, and even the blow-dry was the best one I've ever gotten. The salon is clean and classy, and the whole staff is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. I enjoyed my visit from beginning to end and I look forward to going back again in the near future!
I always look forward to going in. – I first went to Amaci because it's across the street from my job in Park Plaza. I was thrilled with my first visit.
Michelle is awesome. She may be the most thorough stylist I've ever had. During that first visit, she got herself a new regular customer.
I'm going to try an eyebrow waxing, tonight!
