Best of Boston

2010 Best Hair Salon, General Excellence

Salon Mario Russo

After 20 years, the Mario Russo flagship still stands in a category all its own. It’s upscale yet down to earth, with a detail-oriented approach to service and stylists who make it look easy. It’s the rare salon that draws local celebs and suburban moms alike. Then again, it’s the rare salon to dispense with the usual headaches: no long waits, no upselling of spendy products, no attitude.
