Great cut and highlights! – I have been getting my hair cut and highlighted by Shimon for over three years and he's the best!! I moved to Manhattan during this time and traveled back to Boston to have my hair done by Shimon. I have really thick hair and his cut is amazing. His highlights are thin and so natural looking. The products the salon offers are the best quality and your hair feels so healthy after a visit.
savior – While visiting Boston, I was horrified to discover that the humidity (I live in the desert southwest) only confirmed that I had recently endured just an awful haircut. My hair looked simply a mess...I fortuitously found the salon as it was near my hotel and decided to see I could squeeze in...thankfully, Dave Vilinsky was available, and proceeded to work his magic. Needless to say, although he had a mess to deal with, I left the salon with the best hair I have ever known. Literally improved my posture. Dave is not only a talented professional, but patient and kind. I am only saddened that I would have to travel back to Boston for such wonderful service. I cannot recommend Dave, nor the Salon Shimon enough.
Davy makes me shine... – I have my hair cut here by Davy Vilinsky. He is the only person who has cut my hair here, so I cannot speak for anyone else that cuts hair here. However, the place is centrally located near Park and Bolyston T stops. It is easy to find. The space is clean, professional, and has welcoming atmosphere.
Davy greets me with a smile every time and inquires as to what I am looking for in a hair style. I must admit I'm not much help here. I just say "I like it short. Do what you think looks best." Not much help, huh? Well he does a great job. Tells me exactly what he thinks would looks best and executes a fantastic haircut. He also made some suggestions on hair products.
I avoid hair products. That is because, in the morning, I am like a mentally impaired sloth doing the backstroke in molasses. All I can do is shower, iron my shirt, and get in my car for work. However, Davy suggested some excellent products that look great and suggested quick ways to use them when I am in my morning stupor. The products also do not make my hair look like I am from the cast of Grease or I have a Vaseline pompadour
So, if you are a guy like me who likes to look sharp,but gives vague instructions to your hairdresser and is inept at using hair products (but secretly wants to experiment with them) and appreciates a kind personality and a warm smile...well then..Davy is your man. Call him up.
Boston's Best Blow Dry by Shimon – Located just around the corner from Sports Club LA the Salon is easy to get to by car or Boylston T-Stop. Shimon does great color, simple elegant cuts, and the piece de resistance has been and always will be how smooth he gets your hair. You frizzy haired gals know just what I am talking about. It looks like glass with just a little bounce - no damaging straight iron required.
Plan a night out on the town to conincide with your visit. Be careful, it's addictive, before you know it you'll be visiting 3 times a week! Cameras get ready....a star is about to be born.
Great experience! – I heard about Shimon from a friend and decided to try them after I moved back from NY and needed a new salon. I was really pleased with my cut and color! I have hard-to-manage hair and my new cut is so easy to work with and looks great. The stylists were friendly and the salon itself was very clean. I will definitely be back!
horrible expierence – this was the worst hair cut I've ever had. I felt like she just took her scissors and was cutting all over the place and didn't know what she was doing. she seemed as if she was in a rush. she kept using all these products in my hair trying to get me to buy them. i think she should be in sales rather than a hair stylist. i paid $70 for nothing which is horrible i could have done a better job myself.
Best Hairstylist – I have been looking for a good hairstylist for a long time. I live by Shimon's salon, so one day I made a appointment where I met this wonderfully talented stylist, her name was Souad. Souad gave me a beautiful haircut. IT was a great expereince. She even advised me on how to self-blowdry and which products I should use. I loved every minute of it !! I reccomend Souad to anyone who has difficulty finding a stylist because she really listened to me. She did wonders to my hair, because my hair is tough to manage.
Julie is gone :( – I tried to make an appt to see Julie. I was told she wasn't there, but Shimon himself said that he would do my hair for the same price that Julie charged (I get partial highlights and a trim), I didn't want to try it, but I was overdue, and I didn't know where else to go. He did a horrible job! He was really messy with the highlights, leaving huge blond dots all over my head. I ended up going somewhere else where they had to highlight and lowlight every strand of my hair to fix the horrible mess he had made. It took them hours to fix!
ps - while there I heard that Julie moved to NH with her boyfriend - if anyone finds her, let me know.
Loving my New Stylist Erika – I use to see Julie and was very sad to see her go and also nervous to try anybody else BUT since the location is so convenient for me I decided to try someone new in the salon.
I tried Erika for cut & color and she did an amazing job! She took her time w/ me and really listened to my needs. So I?m back and loving my hair!
Thank You Erika!
