Best Salon and Service Anywhere – I was just introduced to Davis by my girlfriend. She had been going there for years and recently had been seeing Tan for blowdry's. He is great and recommended getting her hair relaxed to make it more managable. He told her to go see Amy Smith. Well, her hair has never looked better so I thought I would give it a try. Let me tell you! My hair doesn't even seem like my own hair anymore. It is smooth, NOT frizzy, and takes half the time to blowdry with NO flat iron. Amy worked a miracle with my hair. Anyone with curly,wavy, frizzy hair needs to see Amy Smith right away. This lasts 6 months and really isn't exspensive. The rest of the salon is great too. I was greeted and introduced to Amy and offered water, coffee or tea. The girl who washed me out, Tatiana, gave the best head massage too. I am telling all my girlfriends about Davis!
FINALLY! Fabulous haircut – I'm a REAL haircut snob. I moved to Boston eight months ago and had been going to a salon I wasn't happy with at all but was not looking forward to a trial and error search for a good one. After a particularly painful color experience, I quit the old place. Davis was recommended by a woman at work who is REALLY particular about her hair so I went -- wow! Haircut was perfect...right on trend. After not being listened to for eight months, it was nice to actually have someone (Katie) who understood exactly what I wanted to do with my hair AND the cost was only 50 dollars...as opposed to the 125 I had been paying. AMAZING! Area is really cute too...lots of little shops around. Looking forward to trying a restaurant around the corner after my next appointment when I'm not as pressed for time.
Editorial Review – Large boutique salon open since 1990 handles cuts, color, corrective color, perms, chemical straightening, updos and makeup lessons.
BEST HIGHLIGHTS! – I was referred to Rose by a friend and I lucked out! I met with her and she was great! Young, hip, in style and I could totally tell she knew her stuff with hair color, highlights, cuts, etc. We talked for a bit and she listened to what I wanted and understood exactly what that was. She took the time to show me swatches of color so it would be perfect to my hair color. She gave me highlights and lowlights so it would be perfect. She is a color genius!!! Before Rose did my hair, I always felt I had too many shades of color in my hair, now it is perfect. I get MORE compliments on my hair (especially the color of it) and ALWAYS get asked 'who did your hair' and I tell them Rose at Davis! I figured she must be a great stylist since she is books up fast too!
Best cut and color ever!! – I jump from salon to salon never happy. Well, I walked into davis and keep coming back. I have visited a few of the stylists, from "advanced colorists" to newly appointed stylists. I feel like they really try to understand what it is that I want before they begin the service. My apointments are always on time, and they explain to me the whole process. The stylists all know what they are talking about, and even show me the color that my highlights would be. I was a bit nervous at first, but I have not stopped getting compliments from everyone! I have reffered everyone from my boyfriend, to my best friend, and family! The service is wonderful, and the staff is super nice and talented. They answered any questions I had from haircare to products, and even helped me pick it out. They even called after my service to see if everything was great! Well it was! Thank you Davis, for my great cut and color! The best I've had! Please visit, you won't be sorry!
Best Haircut I Ever Had... – I have been going to Davis Hairdressing for many years and have always left with a great cut and color. I would highly, highly recommend Davis for its very talented stylists and cutting edge styling products.
Highly Recommended – I've been a client of Davis since 1999. Prior to that I had a 'fear' of Hair Salons! I'm very fortunate to have found a salon where I can trust I'll receive exactly what I want, along with the highest level of standards & application skills from the team.
I say 'team' because when I visit, I feel like I'm being treated in the highest regard by front desk management, my hair technician, and even the assistants.
The overall environment of the salon is relaxed, yet classy - AND - when you leave, you felt like you just had a day at the spa! Tell your friends!
Worst haircut I've ever had – While the atmosphere is funky and classy, the cut i got left me wishing for a paper bag to put over my head. I told the stylist my current haircut was just two lengths and i wanted the layers blended more, and that i was afraid of my hair looking like a bowl-cut. well, i left an hour later with a bowl cut on top of a bowl cut. now my hair is evenly cut at precisely two lengths, giving me the most unappealing and fustratingly hard to work with haircut i've ever had. this is the first and only haircut since i've kept my hair short that has not worked out, making me feel like this was a particularly incompetant stylist.
