2013 Best Blowout

Bradley & Diegel Salon

We’ve visited those trendy blowout bars, but found that pointing to a menu to order a hairstyle—not to mention being swiftly herded from sink to chair and out the door again—feels wildly impersonal. Which is why we love this posh Newbury Street salon, where we’re coddled with coffee and tea and a deeply relaxing cranial massage. Most important, we saunter out with perfect tresses fluffed and preened to suit our hair type and face shape.
