I have to agree with Alice A. My husband had the WORST haircut ever with Diegel. He seems to set the tone lacking in emotional intelligence and runs the place like a prison ward. I have never been to a salon where most of the employees 'cannot stand' the person they work for. As is the case with Diegal. Be careful, this place comes with a lot of arrogant hype! The only good person is the (thankfully) front desk Greg. And Jason a stylist with a heart who wants to do a good job. And he does. I wish Boston Magazine would REALLY research these places before they vote them. This place, is not worth mention in my opinion. It lacks true skill and heart. AND OH, be careful: If you are 10 minutes late, all kind of wrath and havoc prevail!
Only one who is unusual is DIrk Diegel, and he is tempermental and limited- Vidal Sassoon trained, precision cut all he can do. Dirk keeps getting awards because of the DIRTH of DECENT haircutters in this one horse town. I remember DD when he could only speak German, if he spoke at all. OVERPRICED, assistants and junior stylists run of mill, coloring horrible. MUST HAVE FRIENDS AT BEST OF BOSTON.
Favorite Haircut Salon on Newbury (so far)! – Love this salon. Came here almost a year ago, but still remember the great experience. Definitely the best part is the deep scalp massage when they shampoo+condition your hair, plus you're already in a massaging chair (but nothing beats good massaging hands!) My actual haircut was done by Laurie - she was super nice and did a great job listening to what I wanted done with my hair. She also recommended some great products I should use (sulfate free shampoo, girls, that is a must!). The only thing was that I came about 20mins early and she was running about 10-15mins late, so therefore my haircut seemed a bit rushed so that she could take her next customer...But since my haircut turned out great I won't complain too much :)
I'd definitely recommend this place for location, look and feel alone. And as far as I've heard all of the stylists are equally amazing. Get to it!
Great highlights – Lynn does the best highlights I've ever had - really capturing a difficult hue for a demanding client. She's so talented, meticulous and incredibly real in an industry full of fakes.
Alex is amazing ! – I receieve Daily Candy and they highlighted a special conditioning treatment offered at Bradley & Diegel Salon. I figured I would give it a try. Alex was my stylist & I was impressed with her immediately. Intelligent ,experienced & kind. She convinced me that I would be happier with the end product of the keratin treatment & she was so right. The best thing I have ever done for my lid . The treatment is amazing. No more flat iron & I could literally let my hair air dry & still looks good . I will do this treatment for the rest of my life. Expensive, oh yeah ,but sometimes you get what you pay for. Alex your the best. I'll see you soon.
Finally, someone who really understands curly hair. – I'm thrilled to have found someone who listens to what I want on MY head. Maite really knows how to work with curly hair. She can style it naturally in a polished way or blowdry it out as smooth as silk. My cut was beautiful and has lasted much longer than I expected. I loved that I learned more about how to care for my hair and what I was doing wrong. I'm looking forward to my next appointment.
WORST HAIRCUT OF MY LIFE – Based on all the reviews I booked an appointment with Dirk and have never been so sorry in my life. I don't know who the people are giving good reviews. Yes the salon is nice but it doesn't make up for a horrible haircut. I was lectured on how to take care of my hair and given a choppy uneven mess that will take at least 6 months to grow out. I specifically asked that the front not be cut short - I consider cutting off at least 4 inches to my cheekbones short. Please save yourself some misery and go somewhere else.
Love this Salon! – I followed my stylist here Maite and I love this salon. Anyone looking for an awesome haircut, color or even a simple blowdry COME HERE! You won't be disappointed! Maite thanks for putting up with Ava! ;-) She will get a haircut next time!
Great Haircut – Just love this place. No detail has been overlooked in the execution - from the velcro close robes, the real door dressing room, great magazines, friendly staff, wonderfully long shampoos to the great haircut and color. Its truly an oasis where you step out looking a lot better looking than when you stepped in.
Great short hair cuts! – I recently decided to get my hair cut short and didn't know where to go. My friend Michelle recommended Maria at Bradley and Diegel and I am forever grateful to her for this.
Maria is awesome! She listens to your concerns and is not afraid to let you know if some of your ideas won't work for you. I have received so many complements on my haircut and everyone is asking where I have it done. She's super talented and very professional.
