Best of Boston

2008 BEST Hair Salon, North

Shanti

The services brochure is more richly designed than most wedding invitations. The décor is a balance of industrial details, chocolate leather, and walls soaked in cool blue-green. Everything about this six-year-old salon, renovated and renamed last year, suggests a keen attention to how things look—which bodes extremely well for your hair. The pros here will quiz you closely on cut and color, and may keep you in the chair longer than you’re used to, but the results are unimpeachable.
