donna hamilton.... a very talented stylists... – I live in NH and recently lost my stylist of 10 years to boston.... of course I was so upset for me but happy for donna..... I tried to remain at her old salon for 2 tries but just could not get the customer service and hair care that donna provides... she knows what she is doing, she listens to what I want and recommends what is best for my life style and my hair.... I have gone to see donna at Daryyl Christopher for the past two hair cuts and colors now and the drive into boston is so worth it..... and by the way.. love the new decor in the salon... it looks so bright and cheerful......... I love donna... she is a very talented stylists.. and LOVE THE AQUAGE... so glad daryl christopher carries aquage ....... I am definitely a life time client for donna....
A+ For Facials and Waxing – Looking for an Esthetician/ waxer that makes the experience as comfortable as possible, I have found her. Go to Waneeta at Daryl Christopher's Spa. She is simply the best around. Friendly, and professional making the waxing as pain free as it can get. (I am so glad she waxed me first ) then I received the best facial ever I was so relaxed and informed all at the same time... as i was put under the steam, she gave me a facial massage then a hand massage and then put my hands in mitts, by this time I was in lala land.... other places just leave you as the steam works, but not here....Then came the deep cleaning, I did not realize that my skin needed all that cleaning( I get facials every 4 weeks) when she finished I looked wonderful. She also explained what I should do at home. The staff was so nice, and i loved drinking their water with the floating lemons and oranges in it. I really felt like i was away on vacation.
Naomi is the best!!!!! – I have been going to Naomi at D. Christopher in Waltham for about a year now and she is amazing!!! I live in the back bay and work on Newbury st. so, I have been to few places around the city and and always thought it was mediocre and over priced. A friend highly recommended Naomi and I scheduled an appointment with her...the rest was history! I have long hair and not much had changed since i was little. She always changes it a little by adding color, new layers, she recently gave me bangs for the first time in my life!!!! I have a spa that I usually go to so, I have not tried any spa services except for manicures and pedicures which were with Penny. She was very good, paid attention to detail and so friendly! Overall I have experienced really great service from the staff and Naomi and highly recommend going there. Someone complained about the prices, but I think they are reasonable, I have definitely paid more for a lot less . Very happy with all of my experiences here.
best new stylist in boston... – I recently visited my hair stylist donna who is now working at daryl christopher, she owned her own salon in NH and has been my stylists for 17 yrs...we lost her to boston where she belongs...... I ABSOLUTELY can not do with out her, I will follow her where ever she goes..... she is definitely a master of her trade and just a wonderful person. she makes me feel and look wonderful each and every time. Daryl christopher is not as modern as her salon was in NH but the service was excellent, the whole staff made me feel so welcome , and the shampoo from Daryl was incredible.... it was a great experience and all worth the travel...I will definitely be back....
I Found Anna, she is the best – I have been a client of Anna's @ Emerge, when they refused to tell me where she is working, my friend told me that she is now @ Daryl Christopher. I could not wait to see her. She is the best with color and has been cutting my hair for the past two years, and I always get stopped by people asking me who cuts my hair. They also can't believe that I color my hair, she is that good! I love her new place, the front desk was very helpful, and gave me a tour of the salon and spa. They personally hung my coat up for me, too! Something that would never happen at her other place. It's a very relaxing and friendly place. The salon assistant Amy gave me the best head and neck massage I ever had. I am so happy for Anna, and the salon there is really happy to have her. I can't wait to send her all my friends. She listens to what I need and gives me all kinds of fashion and beauty tips. I love her!!!! Thanks Anna for NOT leaving Boston.
Ashley is one of boston's best kept secrets. – I currently live in boston this summer and was recommended by a friend to get my hair done my Ashley Saltalmacchia at Daryl Christopher... she is young, edgy, and won't let you leave the salon until you truly love your hair. She is passionate at her work and is currently building her clientle. I ended up getting a color and a cut and loving every bit of it! Her cuts are affordable for newbury st in boston. Since i was a student she gives out these 20% off cards for your visit and if you recommend her to a friend!
in my opinion she is a great hairdresser but also great to talk to!
Worst Salon Experience Ever – I recently went to this salon because I was looking for a nice upper class place to go to. I was sadly mistakend. My entire experience there was a complete disaster. Miriam who worked on my hair was supposed to do a bleach & tone and instead turned my hair different colors and I was in tears before the end of the night. She turned my hair first grey then a canary yellow and it was in multiple spots covering my head. She became frustrated with me and the situation and it definitely showed. I was very uncomfortable because of this and it seemed that everyone in the salon (other hair stylists and even the assistant manager) kept telling me it was my fault and I had waited too long to come in and get my roots done. I felt like I had to defend why I hadn't come in sooner, which was due to a lack of money since I had just moved to the area from California and got a new job. I explained this to them and that I came as soon as I had received my first paycheck, but they were extremely rude and kept putting the blame on me. The first night I was there they spent close to 5 hours on my hair and by the end of the night, my head looked like a patchwork of colors. Because of this I had to come back, the very next morning (which took more time out of my schedule) for them to be able to fix it. When I arrived the next morning, Miriam was rude to me from the very beginning and it took her another 2 hours just to get my hair back to looking normal. I also would like to mention, that Miriam ruined the shirt I was wearing the night before by spilling bleach all over it and when I asked if I could be refunded the money for the shirt, the assistant store manager refused and said that it was my fault and that there was signage all over the shop indicating that customers are responsible for their own clothes. I was still charged the full amount for the entire process and was left with a ruined piece of clothing. I will never go here again and plan on telling everyone I know to do the same.
Best Color in Boston!!! – I moved to Boston about a year ago and I was soooo nervous to go to someone else for color! I loved my colorist at home. I have brown hair that I color and highlight and I hate red!!! Luckily, I found Kathleen at Daryl Christopher in Boston. I get so many compliments now on how natural my blonde hair and highlights look. It's so shiny too! She does something each time she calls a "color glaze". I thought my color was great before, but my hair is in so much better condition than it used to be and it's so much more natural looking. A little pricey, but I find I can go longer between appointments because the color is done so well so I don't mind. I don't usually write reviews, but I had to tell everyone because I am so happy...
Great Colorist – Miriam did a wonderful job on my highlights. I am a new client so I was, of course, a bit nervous about trusting a new person with my color. She is very pleasant and I will definitely go back to her in the future. She also did a great blowout and styled my hair exactly like I wanted. Sometimes they just do what they want. I really enjoyed my experience with Miriam and highly recommend her.
Great massage, body polish and mani/pedi! – It was my first time at Daryl Christopher. I had booked my appointments well in advance (my fiance was out of town for his bachelor party and I wanted to treat myself). What a treat it was! Everyone (including the front desk) was friendly, professional, and the services were excellent. I left feeling SO relaxed and my nails and skin looked SOO good! I'll be back soon! Thank you!
