Going Gray Gracefully – After years of wanting to end the battle of coloring my hair I went on a search for a salon who would help me in the process. I found a small posting buried on a board somewhere about Helena and followed up with an appointment and I am thrilled with the outcome. The experience wasn't quick or inexpensive, but 4 months later I am still comfortable with the growing out process and actually love my interim color! I spent close to 6 hours in the salon in varying stages of stripping out old color and toning new color, but in the end I came out with a subtle blend of dark and light blondish-gray highlights with no sign of the hard line between my new gray hair and the old darkly-colored hair. And several months later I don't feel the need to do anything but trim the length and let the gray continue to fill in. It has been more painless than I could have ever imagined. Helena was brilliant at finding a way to allow me to feel comfortable with my decision to relax into my 'own' color. I highly recommend her. She is very talented. Be prepared to pay a lot, but for me it was worth every penny and I've already saved as much as I paid by NOT coloring every 3 weeks!
Premium Salon Experience – I've been a loyal client of Helena and Eli for several years. After spending time and money going to Newbury St. I finally had enough. I looked in to several salons with top reputations and decided to give Ardan a try. Helena's recognition from Boston Magazine for her expertise in color was a big factor in my decision. Four years has gone by, I visit the salon every four weeks, and I've never had anything but excellent color, hair cuts, and manicures. Their products are top notch and do what they say they'll do! The atmosphere is professional and welcoming and the standards Helena and Eli set for themselves and their employees are no less than 'platinum'. I am always welcomed when I arrive and leave feeling great about how I look. I couldn't go anywhere else.
Quality of Boston. Convenience of Wellesley. – Great experience for color and style. Eli and Helena are highly skilled in their specialties, but it's not all business. They are warm and friendly and made my visit relaxing and refreshing.
The location couldn't be more convenient. Wellesley center offers a wide variety of shopping opportunities. I get lots of errands done with my new look!
Ardan Spa Facial – Got a facial from Sally the other day and it was wonderful! She was thorough and very knowledgeable. She made me feel relaxed and gave me the best facial massage!!! I would highly recommend her.
Great haircut by Jen! – I had a great experience at this salon. I will definitely be coming back.
I saw Jen, she's far and away the sweetest stylist I have come across, not to mention talented and skilled. It's one of the best haircuts I've ever had, it just falls right. I can't explain it any better, it just works. She's a wizard.
I was in and out in 40 minutes, my hair shining with a spring in my step. Exactly what I was looking for in a lunch break haircut.
Highly highly recommend Jen!!
It's so nice here – I've heard people talk about Ardan, but a friend of mine has the best highlights and told me to try Jen at Ardan. I was nervous with trying a new hairdresser, but she put me right at ease. She made the experience like hanging out with friends, we laughed and I basically ended up telling her my life story. When I actually realized how awesome my hair looked walking out of there, I couldn't believe it. I have never looked better. She;s awesome and talented. The place is smaller than you realize at first, slightly hectic, but everyone there seemed really professional and nice. I bought stuff, but not because I felt pushed. The only thing that bothered me was that my appointment (hair color, hilites and a cut) took almost 2 hours. But it was worth it.
Skin care with Kathy Nash – I've been seeing Kathy for Regenique for more than 2 years now and I absolutely love this treatment! I go approximately every 6 weeks and it is SO worth it. At 41, my skin truly has never looked better.
A few months ago, I underwent my first Botox injections - just on the forehead for those infamous 'frown' lines between the eyebrows. I liked the results, but it took more than a week's time to see them.
Recently, Kathy started offering Dysport, which only became available in the U.S. in late October of 2009. Similar to Botox in what it does (relaxes facial muscles), I found it to work MUCH more quickly - 2 days versus 7. Also, there were no "homework exercises" following the injections (i.e. ‘frown, release, smile, release). I am thrilled with the results - very natural and youthful without any severe 'freeze' - and this new experience has only served to strengthen my confidence in Kathy.
I recommend Ardan and Kathy Nash for all of your skin care needs!
More than pleased – I just had my hair done on Saturday, as a first time client and what a great experience.
My stylist was Mary and she was fabulous. She was very nice and attentive. At first I was hesitant because, after asking her, she stated that she has only worked there for a couple of months. (which I later found out, was due to her relocating from the Cape).But she was so experienced with her work. I mentioned what I was looking for and she nicely gave me her honest opinion, on something I normally wouldn't go for. She said with my face shape and big blue eyes, a chin length cut would be perfect for me. I am so glad I listened to her! Not only did I hug her when I left, but I decided to write a review as well. Everyone I work with have commented on my new look as well as people I don't even know. Thank you Mary for helping me step outside my box.
Amazing Transformation! – When I met Helena over a year ago for a color consultation, I was an over-processed blonde in serious need of help. My hair was terribly bleached out & broken. After my very first highlight with Helena, I walked out and knew that I had found a very special salon & color specialist. I've been highlighting my hair for over 10 years and have never received more compliments. I love my color now - it's got dimension, looks so healthy & lustrous and is finally a shade of blonde that compliments my complexion. I can't recommend Ardan more highly!
