Andover Hair Company's stylists convert the information gleaned during intensive consultations that transform information gleaned from style manuals and past cuts into client-specific strand pampering. Amid art prints and natural lighting, clients chat with the tress professional to determine a cut and treatment that suits the individual's lifestyle and degree of passion for balancing books on their head.
