AWESOME!! – after researching high and low throughout boston for a new stylist i happen to come across brandon keith salon and after much deliberation i decided to give him a whirl.i could not be more happier! the staff was super friendly, and down to earth, the salon was very edgy and modern but still very intimate and personable. brandon himself was just a gem - a complete artist. not only is he extremely talented but very interested in your own style and how he can incorporate that into your hair. i gave him the freedom to cut and color what he thought was going to look great on me intime for the spring and the finish product was dynamite!!! highly recomended!!! and he is very handsome too!!
Overall Fantastic Experience/Best BlowOut – First of all, Brandon does the best blowout ever. He did exactly what I had envisioned but didn't think any one would every really get right (I have had my hair done this way before, always good but not quite what I had envisioned). I was even complimented by a news anchor woman - who I imagine is familiar with getting her hair professionally done - at the event I attended among many other compliments I received throughout the evening. But almost equally as important in my mind is that I was treated so well. Megan, the woman who washed my hair was great with me, Brandon was great with me, and Karla, the makeup artist offered her expertise generously. I highly recommend going here if you are off to an event and looking to look and feel great! I also imagine you would get a great hair cut here, although I did not have that done.
Leon Brown: Hair Guru – My roommate had been going to Leon for a few years while she was in college and has been a faithful client to this very day. She even followed him from his old salon to Brandon Keith's Hair. I took her raving recommendation and tried out the salon and Leon and I have not regretted my decision since. I don't trust just anyone with my Asian hair, but he knew exactly how to handle it and gave me the best and most stylish haircut & color I've ever had! He gives me the cut I want and doesn't pressure me into wearing a hair style I"m not comfortable with. He even trims my bangs for free between cuts; can't beat that in this economy! I've had my fair share of crappy haircuts and dealt with stylists that treat their clients as a factory worker treats a product on an assembly line, but Leon is so personable and professional that I've officially made him my only Boston hair stylist that I'll go to.
Jacqui is the Best Colorist I've ever used! – I followed Jacqui to BrandonKeithHair because she is an artist with color. I'll admit it--my hair is turning gray. As it has changed over the past few years, she has worked with the formula so it always looks great! My hair is often complimented on by strangers!!! I really love going to this salon too. Everyone is very friendly and the place is beautiful!
Jacqui and Brandon Keith are awesome! – I admit, I follow Jacqui around wherever she's working--she's that good. But it's really nice to see that she has found a salon that can complement her talents. The place is beautiful, the staff friendly, and the location is excellent. But if you're worried about the Newbury St. location, don't; the cost is reasonable and there is no pretension here. Always professional, and always get what I ask for. Recommended!
Orestes & Whole Salon are Great!! – I've had some great experiences at Brandon Keith. Orestes always does an amazing job - he has a friendly personality, always listens to what I want and gives constructive input. I genuinely trust his work. The atmosphere is upbeat and modern, yet relaxing. I'll be a longtime customer!
Excellent Work – I was a first timer, going to Brandon based on color product and reviews here. The office person was very helpful and called me back after checking on a request. All staff was friendly, not pretentious at all. Brandon listened to my long list of wishes, made modest suggestions without pushing his opinions, and proceeded to cut and color in ways I"d never seen before. The result was totally fabulous. I cannot believe he got the color so right the first time, and I'm a copper blonde, not easy at all.
Great haircut! – I went to Brandon Keith's a couple of weeks ago after reading all the great reviews on Citysearch. I've never been very happy with hairstylists before, so I decided to splash out and see if a "professional" hairstylist really would make a difference. And it sure did!! I had my hair cut and highlights put in by Brandon and he did an amazing job, I LOVE my hair now! I wanted something stylish, easy to deal with and a cut that suited my face and lifestyle. I got all that and more!! The receptionist was really friendly and made great tea, the little dog is adorable and all-in-all I had a great experience. A bit pricey, but well worth it! When I got home my husband promptly took me out for dinner and I even got compliments from a complete stranger in the restroom, that has never happened to me before!! When I've saved up some more money I will be back!
Ruined haircut – Still regret I went there.
My haircut now it completely different from what I wanted, plus the person who did my hair managed to pull my hair carelessly I had to stop him and burned me twice...hurtful experience.
Will never go there again, although everyone was too nice, probably because the haircut I've got is a total disaster.
Brandon Keith is AWESOME! – I found Brandon Keith Hair here on citysearch, and even after reading all of the marvelous reviews of this place, I was STILL unprepared for the amazing experience I ended up having. The ambiance was wonderfully warm and friendly. Stepping into the salon for the first time, I felt overwhelmed by its chic/hip/coolness factor. But everyone immediately makes you feel right at home and completely welcome. And wow, do they definitely know what they're doing with hair! I really had no idea what I wanted to do with my hair --- all I told Brandon was that I wanted something different, and he was perfectly fine with it and maybe even a little excited to start. I've definitely been to places where I've gotten annoyed looks about not knowing what I want and needing a little bit of outside advice. But Brandon Keith Hair is totally not one of those places. Brandon was completely up for the challenge and he was friendly and fun all throughout the process...and I have to say, he worked wonders with my hair! I absolutely love my new haircut, and I can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten since leaving the salon yesterday.
Basically, I had an amazing experience at Brandon Keith Hair, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for new do.
