Best of Boston

2001 Best Hair Salon

Vidal Sassoon

Still think Vidal Sassoon is about those cheesy ’80s commercials? Not anymore. This international house has spearheaded trend after trend, and the Boston branch is particularly blessed with a dream team of hair artistes in colorist par excellence Laurel Elliot and the exacting stylist Dirk Diegel. Add to all that a widespread practice of professional but personal treatment punctuated by a notable lack of pretense, and you’ve got the consummate coiffure.
