Best of Boston

2005 Best Hair Colorist

Michael Albor, M

Getting an appointment with Albor may take months, but it’s well worth the wait. Devoted clients rave about his charismatic chair-side manner and uncanny ability to turn the mousiest of browns into gorgeous shades of chestnut, mahogany, or golden blond. Be prepared to permanently banish bad hair days—well, for six to eight weeks, anyway.
