Best of Boston

1999 Best Haircut

Martyn Duff, Vidal Sassoon

Heads will be turning now that Duff, Sassoon’s North American creative director, has relocated to Boston. Masterful cut aside, we loved his approach—assessing your lifestyle, hair type, and sensibilities before lifting his scissors. “I want to know how this works for you,” he asked repeatedly. Just be sure to call ahead for appointments—the man is a bigger jet setter than Austin Powers.
