best salon in wellesley! by far! – ID Salon is very much open!!! Do not be fooled by the bad guys!!!! Id Salon is open and thriving Thank you
The toughest thing for a woman when relocating to a new area is to find a gynecologist and a hairdresser! When I moved to the Boston area from NYC, I tried a fancy place in Newton Center, then a fancy place on Newbury Street. I was surprised at the mediocre service I got for the price. A friend suggested I see Helen at I.D. salon in Wellesley for my color. It was a bit of a drive for me, but my hair is important! I booked an appt. with Helen (the owner) and described my hair type to the receptionist over the phone - blonde, long, very fine. She suggested Nadia for a cut. Perfect!! Helen has years of experience doing color. She will work with you until you are happy! (And I'm pretty picky!) She is truly a "specialist" who knows her craft! Nadia did an amazing job of giving my hair the cut it needed to look fuller and stylish. She's young and energized and competent! I'm so happy to have found the best colorist and best stylist in the area! It's so worth the extra drive! It's not a salon that's "full of itself" but a salon that does the job right. I would recommend this salon to everyone with no reservations!
Matthew, Shelly Rose, and Carlos are now at Fia Salon in Newton Center.
Worst Service I've Ever Had! – This is the worst salon experience I've ever had. Truly horrid service. I bought a Groupon and made an appointment. When I checked in, the tacky receptionist asked me to pre-pay for my services. I handed over my Groupon and was told I was all set.
Next thing I know, Nadia has partial highlights in my hair, and the tacky receptionist is demanding $80 more from me. I told her I understood that everything was included in the Groupon, and she said nope, not foils. I asked why no-one said something to me BEFORE putting the foils in. She had no answer to this but suggested I forfeit my haircut if I didn't want to pay more.
I agreed, although I thought it was very wrong. Horrible communications, and had I know what I was paying for, I would have never bought the Groupon.
So after the highlights, Nadia informs me that the shampoo girl is going to finish me up. Amber, the shampoo girl, washes my hair then sits me at a counter to DRY MY OWN HAIR. In a Wellesley Salon.... are you kidding me?
I've never been so humiliated or treated so poorly. Needless to say, I'll never go back and unless you want to pay double what other salons charge, I recommend seeking services elsewhere.
Best salon anywhere – I have spent the past 3 1/2 years trying salon after salon all over the greater Boston area... Newbury Street, Wellesley, Concord, you name it, trying to find someone, anyone, who could cut and color my hair in a way I liked since it began growing back in after loosing it to chemo.
I am SO THRILLED that I am finally done looking!!! I LOVE id salon. Helen is the most talented colorist I have ever found anywhere, including in L.A. or New York. She took the mess that the last person had made of my color and took the time to figure out how to fix it and make my color something that I love.
Will gave me a fabulous cut. I always fear getting the suburban mom cut, and he completely got what I meant by that. What he did isn't trendy or wierd, but it is fun and stylish and my hair looks healthy. He also suggested a keratin treatment, which I did my second time in, and has been great.
I have found everyone that works at the salon to be lovely, helpful and very down to earth. I have never had any problems booking anything. I love that there is no attitude in the salon either. I don't feel like I need to get dressed up to go have my hair done.
I literally must have been to 15 different places in the past few years looking for what I finally have found at id salon.
amazing!! – Just had an amazing cut and color from matt. I was very impress, he just went to a class in london where he learned the latest. I'll be back for sure!!
Great Salon! – I recently moved to the Boston area and left a great stylist back in NY. I was unsure of where to go to get my hair done, but figured it would definitely have to be in town. I was wrong!
I called ID salon pretty last minute and they were able to squeeze me in on that day. I met with William and received quite possibly the best haircut ever. He really listened to my needs! I highly reccomend him!
I am thankful for finding such a great salon and will absolutely be back!
Nadia Rocks!~ – I went to I D over the weekend & used one of my groupons. To be honest, I really wasn't expecting much... (not sure why?) I could have used up to a $90 value, but I wanted an appointment on Saturday morning & Nadia happened to be available. I really just wanted my hair "that I wear up all of the time by the way", to be cleaned up, shaped, not much more. Wow, Nadia completely changed the entire style of my bangs, loose pieces etc. I can't say enough about her. I thought when I dried it myself it would look different, but it still came out clean, neat, even, stylish, etc. Don't go by the dollar sign, Nadia is as good as they come..I have baby fine hair with a cowlick on my forehead, Nadia managed to make it all work.~ Honestly, she sat me down & really checked out my baby fine hair before she cut it. My advice, go with NADIA:) Thank you Nadia~
The best salon around! – I used to go to Helen for color and Shirley for styling for years until Shirley left. I decided to try Sarah for a haircut and I'm so glad I did! She gave me a fresh, amazing cut that left me feeling years and years younger. So now I still go to Helen for color (who, by the way, is the one of the best colorist in MA) and Sarah as my stylist.
Another thing that I love about the salon is the staff who work there. I always get an amazing shampoo and scalp massage from one of the hair-washers and they are always willing to go get me a cup of coffee or tea.
I recommend id Salon in Wellesley very, very highly!
this salon is not a cut above!!!!! – I went to Id salon for a consultation and decided to get a trim .I told the stylist that I needed length as I liked pulling hair back and that my gray was growing in very kinky /frizzy unlike the rest of my hair which was straight. I also said that I liked long hair and did not care for short hair. I knew that longer length would weigh down frizz and prevent likelihood of curls. The stylist pulled my hair back to show me that I could still wear it back and then proceeded to texturise and chop off all my hair!!! When I left my hair did not even touch my shoulders and barely covered nape of neck!!! I had multiple layers, short and chunky and the shortest ones are where all my gray, frizzy hair is growing in! I could not even pull it back and had so little hair left that I wanted to cry!!! I have since gone to another salon where the owner listens to what I want and was told that any stylist should know that short layers are BAD for frizzy, ,rebellious hair as it makes it even more unruly!!! It will take me over a year to grow out this mess! It takes me twice as long to style my hair now. I feel as if the stylist was more interested in doing her thing:and/or giving me a LOOK than in meeting my needs or desires. I would never recommend this salon to anyone!! Not one person has told me that this looked nice or attractive either! The primary reaction as been: "Oh My God!!! What did you do to to your hair? What a mess?"
unfortunate... we are surprised by this review as we will always stand by our work... sounds like a ex hairdresser...beware the disgruntled ex employees...we can't preveiw this service of online posting but ... do feel this was some unwarrented ranting from questionable origin..... sorry... id salon will always back up and take responsiblity for any work that leaves our doorway.... Thank you.... Helen Mckenna
