Best of Boston

2009 Best Hair Colorist, Blond

Jeffrey Lyle, Emerge

Not only are some of the city’s most high-powered blondes among his clientele, but even Newbury’s notoriously catty cutters (who’d sooner drink bleach than compliment a peer) cant resist gushing over Lyle’s work. In the words of one, The foil placement is superb. And another: I understand why his blondes keep going back.
