Good experience – I've been trying to find a hair salon in Cambridge/Boston that I really like and I think I finally have! They did a great job with my highlights (I got many compliments) and cut. The atmosphere especially is fantastic, very comfortable and I loved the people. Matthew did my hair and he was very good.
The cut prices are very reasonable, although they just raised their highlight prices but it is still definitely cheaper than a lot of fancy-schmancy places around town who do just an okay job.
Love it Love it Love it – I love this place. First off, it is beautiful, looks out over porter with great big windows. I have been going there for almost 2years. My stylist Heather gives me the perfect blonde......worth every penny.
Pay attention – I looked up my stylist's salon for the phone number to make an appointment...and found this site and these so called reviews for Salon Luna.
It takes more than one visit and alot of communication with your stylist to determine what cut/color/style is for you! I saw one girl for a couple of years for cuts and then got scheduled with Tony because my girl was unavailable. The endless string of compliments changed how I felt about myself...I was repeatedly told I looked much younger and my confidence soared. YOU must be clear when you tell your stylist what you want. It's all about interpretation. For the individual who was appalled that she was asked to remove her shirt for the cut: A.) there's a room you go into for that, dufus....B.) It's preferred to do a better cutting job and to protect YOUR clothing from sharp shears.
WORST CUT EVER – Salon Luna was the worst experience I ever had with a salon. I was charged $40 and left me with an uneven cut (literally, an inch longer on one side than the other!), uneven layering, and 1/2" poofs where "long angled bangs" were requested. I didn't realize quite how drastic the damage was because my hair was not even properly blow it out! Once I styled my own hair I found how uneven it actually was. The head stylist offered to fix it, but the chop-job that he performed was little repair to the damage. I am left with thinned out hair where my admittedly gorgeous locks once were. I am disgusted at the lack of expertise at such a seemlingly nice salon. All I can do is wait it out till it grows back, and never ever walk through Salon Luna's door again. I suggest you do the same.
Can't find better – I've been going to Salon Luna for 6 years. My stylist is creative and is great with colors/highlights etc. When I moved miles away from Cambridge, I tried to find an equivalent place both locally and in downtown Boston. After a couple of near disasters, I went back to Salon Luna and was again completely satisfied. A relaxed, professional salon for both men and women.
Nice stylists, relaxed ambience, pleasant staff – I searched for a place like this for years before finding Salon Luna. I've only gone to one stylist but I think she's great. I've been going there regularly for over a year now. The staff is very pleasant and the ambience is hip but not pretentious. Parking is not great but I usually take the bus.
User review by twinklesprnkle56 – I loved it, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I've tried many places around Boston (I've lived here ten years now) and I have never found someplace as satisfying as this one. Its great and the people are wonderful and cheerful.
Finally a real hair dresser – After trying far too many places since I moved to town it was a pleasure finally being in salon as you expect: from the small thing like the free coffee when you arrive to the all important fact that the stylist actually asked, listened, and corrected until it was as expected. I am expressed and for once I actually look forward to come back.
