Best of Boston

2011 Best Haircut, Women's

Brian Rand, Trephin

There are stylists whose names are plastered on salon windows. There are stylists who charge $400 a cut. And then there’s the quietly brilliant Rand, who takes a good, long look at your face, runs his fingers through your tresses, and begins coaxing your hair into the shape it’s always wanted to be. After an hour of snipping and razor-cutting, curly-haired lasses walk out with tamed, bouncy ‘dos; straight-haired ladies marvel at the life in their locks.
