Residents of the North End don’t have to go to Newbury Street for a great haircut. Instead, they can book an appointment at Philip’s Salon on Hanover Street. The small contemporary stylist is located just a few steps from the waterfront and away from the hustle and bustle of the restaurant zone that Hanover Street is so well known for. From single-process colors, partial highlights and conditioning glosses to trendy cuts, creative blowouts and straightening treatments, the trained stylists recommend new looks based on hair texture and face shape. They also offer hair removal services for bikini, back, eyebrow, lip and underarms, all from inside their brick storefront, touched off with warming wood tones and light wooden floors.
At Adara Spa, beauty curators help shape physiques with microcurrent technology and perform waxing and nail services with the goal of bringing out each guest's innate beauty. Microcurrent facials and body treatments help tighten the skin, kick-starting the cogs of the body’s fat-burning system and removing any jerky sticks wedged in its gears. High-quality salon and spa products, including offerings from OPI, Pure Fiji, and G.M. Collin, fill Adara's shelves and stylists' arsenals, allowing staffers to pair skill with rich, effective solutions.

As the seasons change, so too do the styles. The stylists at Bangs of Boston understand that the haircut that gets you through the winter might not be the one that makes a splash during your spring debut. That’s why they consult with each client before the first snip, collaborating to craft a new cut that’s both fashionable and functional. From traditional to funky, they can create any desired look, and provide Keratin treatments and Brazilian blowouts in addition to cuts and colors. Plant-derived Aveda haircare products enhance the already relaxing styling experience with whiffs of soothing scents like rosemary mint, signifying the botanical therapies taking place within the serums.
