2011 Best Hair Salon, North

Spa NiJoli

We’ll admit we’re skeptical of any salon inside a full-service day spa. Can one place really excel at massages, pedis, and cuts and color? At Spa Ni’Joli, the answer is a resounding yes. The stylists strike the delicate balance between listening to your hair-care woes and delivering advice, and our tresses were all the better for a visit. For all you busy North Shore moms: Ni’Joli also offers babysitting ($5 for two hours). Now that’s what we call full service.
