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.

Harris manages more than 100 employees, who go through his method of in-company training, which guarantees his chic, designer touch. Though the Broad Street salon looks small from the outside, the design of the long, airy room is deceiving; besides cuts, colors and the like, a full range of spa treatments are also available.
