I live in Las Vegas, originally from Worcester. A while back I was home for an extended stay, and needed my hair done. I am very particular about my hair and I bravely made an appointment at this lovely salon...simply because it was so beautifully done...I have had my hair worked on in New York, Los Angles and currently Las Vegas...and there is not a stylist who has done a better job than this gal....the cut, the color was fantastic! Work like this does not come cheap, but one should never cut corners on one's personal crown!
Fantastic! – I visited this salon for the first time yesterday and haven't stopped smiling since. Based on other stunning reviews I decided to drive the 1 1/2 hours from my hometown for a haircut and color. I was absolutely thrilled with the experience, color and cut. The salon is chic, lovely and upscale--and not at all pretentious. Nina and Kevin are a wonderful team and I felt very welcome and at ease from the moment I arrived. Nina asked me detailed questions about the style and color I was looking for and listened attentively as I answered. She thoroughly explained different options and offered suggestions. I have curly hair and have had bad experiences with other salons, but not here! I asked her to color, cut and style it the way she thought was best and I was thrilled with the results. She cut 10" off my hair and gave me lovely balayage highlights; she explained each step and consistently checked in with me to see if I liked the effects on my hair. I couldn't help admiring my new style in my rear view mirror all the way home! I feel fantastic and have already received many, many compliments. I can't wait to go back! Don't waste any time in scheduling an appointment. Your experience will be wonderful and your only regret will be that you didn't discover this salon sooner!
The best in Massachusetts. Move over Newbury Street salons – Having not cut my hair for over three years, I was in dire need of a new look. I cried with joy after my makeover with Nina. In addition to the incredible cut and color, the experience at Nina Raffaella made me feel like I was “at home.”
They offer TOP of the line service (Newbury Street/Manhattan) without the pretentiousness. The entire staff is wonderful; the atmosphere is beautiful, relaxing, and incredibly elegant.
This is best the hair cut I have ever had. Bear in mind I lived in Manhattan for six years and have been TRYING in VAIN to find a stylist on Newbury Street for the past 7 years.
RUN don't walk to see Nina and her staff. She is a gifted, talented, warm and caring woman.
a totally valuable experience! – Nina Raffaella is a consummate visual artist with hair. She is sincere, modest and very considerate. She takes her time to give you the best color and haircut that she can. I've been to salons in NYC, Newbury Street and Cambridge. I've been to at least a dozen places in Worcester too. I wanted a premium haircut and color and that's what I received. It is well worth the cost--in fact, there is great value because the salon is very restful, beautifully decorated in a minimal aesthetic, very clean and the support staff are cordial and good at their jobs. Nina takes her time, is gifted at what she does. And she's also a really nice person. I'm going to return for sure because this kind of haircut makes me feel attractive and well-cared for. You will too!
Simply wonderful – I have been a customer for almost a year and I was thrilled with the service and cut at my first visit. Over time, Nina suggested variations in color that were lovely and, most recently, a change in style.
Since I have had my hair cut and colored there, I have received so many compliments. The change Nina suggested this last time is nothing short of amazing. I feel as though I have had a complete make over with just one haircut. Every day since that cut, someone has remarked on how pretty my hair is, or how it suits me so well.
I have gone to Boston and New York, hoping for this kind of experience and found it here in Worcester! Nina is charming and a genius with color and cut. The salon is a mini vacation to an elegant spa. I couldn't be happier.
Great place – I have been to every salon in the city. First time at this salon. It is a pearl in an oyster. The oyster being Green St. Nina was precise and methodical in the cut she gave me. She is humble and talented. I wanted the kind of cut I would never have to comb and I got it. You know you got a good cut when they are blow drying your hair all over the place and it still looks good. It is was a tasteful experience opposed to the run of the mill chop shops. I would highly recommend this salon if you want high end experience and highly skilled technique. Nina is just lovely! Thank you.
"The Best of the Best" – Curly? Straight? Wavy? Color??? Stylistic and color perfection.... It is with meticulous care for each individual ...that is Nina. It is with pride that I write this review. It has taken me a lifetime to find a professional, quality stylist and colorist. Salon Nina Raffaella is by far an asset to Worcester. Better still...it is probably better than Newbury Street salons ( considering all the variables).
From one's first step into the "meticulous" salon, one is charmed by the personal care. The atmosphere is "O! Paris"---relaxing (music, quiet, peace), eye-catching clean ( the allure of white, mirrors, dramatic ceilings and windows), caring ( "What would you like to drink?" "Magazine?"). Every person at the salon is absolutely professional and attentive.
My salon experience is with Nina. To begin with my hair is very curly and frizzy. Having researched for products, plans, procedures, equipment...and years and years of advice, hairdressers, and major disappointments...what to do??Color??or not?? What color?? Should the hair be short? long?
Then ...I found Nina! Nina spent time explaining, talking, and teaching about my type of curly hair...She explained the best style and length...Nina matched my hair color with my eyes and skin...she brought life to my hair! Now my curly hair is longer, healthier, organized, and manageable. Most importantly, I love my hair now. (not to mention the compliments) Nina showed me how to use Paris Kerastase and Shu Uemura. They are wonderful products......And my hair color is alive!!
This is a salon for you if you consider yourself deserving the very best! And Nina is the very Best.
Wonderful Salon!!! – I have been going to Salon Nina Raffaella for almost a year. I grew up in a family of hairstylists who have styled my hair for many years, and who have seen many disasters occur as the result of me trying someone new in the area - - and I have been everywhere!!!
Nina does my hair and I have to say that after going to her, this is the first time any of my family members have loved the way my hair has looked! Nina takes her time, explains everything she is going to do and is so extremely precise with her cuts.
I have curly hair which I style straight. I have never been able to find someone who has been able to cut my hair so it falls right into place when styled straight or curly - -until now!! Nina is fabulous and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a wonderful cut and wants to find someone they trust with their hair. Nina is so professional and honest and will truly tell you what will look good on you.
The salon is beautiful, calming and immaculate. Give it a try and you will never go anywhere else!
Newbury Salon in Worcester!!! – What a great salon!! Millie did my color, cut and foil. I can't tell you how happy I am. She has to be the first hairdresser I have gone to that did exactly what I asked and the results surpassed all my expectations. Great salon very comfortable and beautiful inside. They also sell and use high end product lines which is great for your hair. Keep up the great work and give Salon Nina Rafaella a try uyou won't regret it!!!!
Great atmosphere, exceptional service, incredible stylists! – This salon is incredible. Not only is the atmosphere very chic and professional, the stylists are absolutely exceptional. Tony was my stylist, and he took as much time as he needed to perfect my cut and style. Never have I EVER had someone who was such a perfectionist (great thing!) who cared so much to send me out of the salon looking like a million bucks (for SO much less!). He sat me down and discussed exactly what I wanted to have done, and if I was unsure of something I wanted or was trying to explain, it was like he knew exactly what I wanted before I did. It was obvious he took pride in his work and making people 100% satisfied. The price was minimal-$35 without tip- and similar to other prices of other salons who were less attentive, thorough, and dedicated to making sure the customer is 110% happy with what they paid for. The cut and style was worth so much more, certainly the best value hair cut in Worcester and surrounding areas! Thank you, Tony , for being such an all around amazing stylist, I will be back as soon as I return from studying abroad!
