Best of Boston

2005 Best Haircut, Women's

Patrick McGinley, Vidal Sassoon Salon

Patrick McGinley knows women’s hair. The longtime creative director of Vidal Sassoon on upper Newbury Street has an instinct for sculpting even the most hard-to-manage hair into superior shape. With his slight southern drawl and intense aquamarine eyes, McGinley exudes a sensuality and confidence that translate into eye-catching cuts and styles—trendy or straightforward.
