Take a Look at Salon Eva Michelle’s New Space on Newbury
Salon Eva Michelle is beautifying a brand-new block of Newbury Street.
The high-end salon recently relocated a few doors down to 37 Newbury, acquiring more square footage and granting the talented team more flexibility. Co-founders Michelle Lee and Eva Mustafai relied on the same group of designers and architects at Dash Marshall to offer a fresh look and modern industrial luxe vibe.
“Although we loved our original location at 118 Newbury, we have grown and needed more space,” says Mustafai. “We grew from 11 stations to 20, and we have mobile stations allowing us to move the room around for events and classes.”
Artistic Designer Bryant Anthony says he thinks the new address is the best location on Newbury. “As a creature of habit, I generally dislike change, but it’s been an easy adjustment,” he says. “I love that the vibe is still the same as the old location when you walk in. It encourages our creative flow. It’s not pretentious, but still welcoming with happy familiar faces.”
Upgrades include a gorgeous view of the Boston skyline, closer proximity to the Public Garden, and a panoramic setup of mirrors. “We’ve also expanded the processing area, which not only provides us with a little more room to service our guests, but also provides them with a more relaxed customer experience,” says Artistic Designer Jackie Wright.
“The new sinks keep getting rave reviews from all of our clients,” adds Advanced Designer Charlie Gouveia. “They don’t mind sitting back and relaxing while they have a service done or getting one of our signature scalp massages. The space is bigger, but it still has an intimate atmosphere to make guests feel comfortable.”
But the 118 location will continue to serve Lee and Mustafai’s vision to support the growth of fellow designers. They have opened Eva Michelle Studios in the former salon headquarters to support individual artists in creating their own blooming businesses. “We offer help in social media branding, education, and the same salon feel working with like-minded designers,” says Lee. “118 was where our journey started and we felt it would be a great place for others who are aspiring to start their own business.”
While the salon location has changed, Lee and Mustafai say guests will still receive the same standard of service that the staff has proudly provided since 2011.
“Salon Eva Michelle and now Eva Michelle Studios are proud to have such talented designers from all backgrounds with the common goal of furthering their education for themselves and their guests,” Lee says. “They understand that it’s not just cutting and coloring hair, but building relationships and trust with guests to continually give them a fresh new look to feel their best.”
“Expect to have an amazing hair experience without any of the fluff,” says Wright. “Expect to feel at home and appreciated.”This is a paid partnership between Salon Eva Michelle and Boston Magazine's City/Studio
