2007 Best Hair Salon, West


If you’re after Newbury Street panache minus the hassle of driving in from the ‘burbs, Fia has the experts on staff and swank products in stock to deliver the goods. Stylist Chuck Bass works both wet and dry cutting techniques to create head-turning styles, while even a routine shampoo gets taken up a notch with hair care by John Sahag and Phytologie and a mini scalp massage. Afterward, you’ll feel as if you’ve just stepped out of a big-city salon—and yet there’s your car, easily stashed, hassle-free, in a lot across the street.
