Color & Style
Whatever your shade, our color specialists understand that your hair color is an expression of your style and your personality, and we’ll work with you to create the perfect shade. Our cut and color work has been recognized repeatedly by Boston magazine’s Best of Boston.
Ideal for anyone looking to add texture or volume, our hair extensions blend into the hair, leaving it impossible to tell where your natural hair ends and the extensions begin.
We take products seriously and are proud to offer the very best hair and beauty lines to help you maintain your cut and color work at home. We currently carry Aquage, Matrix, Logics, Biolage, and define:beauty.
