A great place that is convenient. There is plenty of onstreet parking.
Amari was my hairstylist. I got a wash, blowdry & curl. Amari gave me a great shampoo. I have dry hair that is curly. She knew just what product to use to give me good results. My style lasted for days.
They also have a good selection of homecare products for all hair types.
I can't wait to go back for another hairdo.
welcoming place for hair care – I have been going to Fresh Hair for years, so do my husband and kids. Skilled, respectful, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. I look forward to the rocking chairs during the very brief wait when I arrive. Hair care is excellent even for my unbelievably curly hair. My whole family trusts only Joy and her staff to cut their hair. I also really appreciate the natural hair care products available and the local art exhibited on the walls. Cozy sweaters are provided if needed and there's a small selection of local handcrafted jewelry for sale/browsing. Before Fresh Hair I found hair cuts a nuisance, now I enjoy the experience and wouldn't go anywhere else.
Great place – I get my hair cut and colored by Joy. She listens very well, and does an all-around excellent job. My husband gets his hair cut by her, too, and has always been happy with her work. He has also had good hair cuts from Katie. My teenage son shopped hair stylists at other salons, and finally took my advice and tried Shauron. He has been very happy since.
Just so nice to be there – This is a friendly, low-key salon where they take the time to listen to what you want. It's a pleasant and relaxing place to be. I've always been happy with every haircut I've gotten there (I use the same stylist each time). My daughter had her ears pierced there--Joy, the owner does that service. Joy was patient and careful, and she gives a very helpful information sheet about follow-up care.
Editorial Review – Jamaica Plain full-service salon offering hair care services, nail care, massages, facials and more.
Good services, good people – I've tried lots of places to get a haircut or some highlights, but I've never come across any place as easy as this neighborhood salon. The receptionist was friendly and able to answer all my questions, the prices are moderate, the salon itself has 2 rocking chairs! and was recently repainted inside and out.. I've been a few times and have had different hairdressers each time, but everyone was good and definitely listened to my wishes. I say the place is easy because thats what I feel: at ease like I know I'm in good hands. And its easy on the pocketbook. Also easy to get to by T or by car. I hear the manicurist is fabulous and they have facials that don't leave your skin in trauma. But I want to try the spray tanning next.
Best in the neighborhood! – My experience at Fresh Hair depends on the stylist. I have been going on and off for 3 years now, and have yet to go to the same person twice. Sometimes it is because of a bad experience (stylist massaging my hair a little too much during shampoo--so much so i was blushing and completely embarrassed!) Sometimes it becuase i think i can find something cheaper and better. But never the less, Fresh hair is 5 minutes from my house, very cool in the summer time and has what i know now to be some of the best prices around.That being said, I will tell of two experiences recently that make me want to continue going there (and to the same two people) I went in and got the best hair cut I've gotten in the past few years. The stylist knew what I wanted (and the receptionist was extremely helpful in deciding between 2 available stylist) and I wasn't afraid to tell her to do what she thought was best too.
I also had a terrible experience with a manicure that they were very understanding about and I went in free of charge the next week and someone else fixed it up beautifully for me.
inconsistent – i think how well you like this place for haircuts really depends on the stylist. i had kelly and i didn't like her. she was too rushed and my hair ended up a lot shorter than i had in mind. now i go to miss laura's up the street, and i'm much happier there.
A Boston Salon that really cares – Nicest people. Very clean and "fresh". Joy, the owner is very warm and open to talking to anyone. Most owners don't bother. My time there flew by. The hair color and cut I recieved was outstanding. Last time it didn't fade either.
Friendly and great services too! – Been a long time customer (4 years) and feel welcomed everytime I enter. Have had hair services (cuts & colors), skin care, and nails done. Some of the staff are better at interpreting my desires and some are better at giving me new ideas, but all have been nice and I've never felt rushed. Unlike other places, there's not much drama or posturing, they're very down-to-earth. The price is right and the atmosphere is charming, really. They sell the basic things, and some unusual earrings and gift stuff. Also, they added spray tanning last year which is great (clean and safe). I would highly recommend a visit, and if you're unsure who to see just ask the receptionist. It feels real, and right.
