Best of Boston

2016 Best Salon, West


This 45-year-old local hair empire has expanded over the decades, launching its own product line, opening several satellite locations, and cultivating a strong media and runway presence thanks to dynamic lead stylist Nick Penna. But the Newton salon retains a family-owned vibe thanks to regular charity events for local institutions like Boston Children’s Hospital, pop-up shops with neighborhood businesses, and stylists who act like old (albeit exceedingly dexterous) pals.
