Rose Thompson wants to make the world a more beautiful place. With the help of her staff at Rose Grows Hair Salon, she accomplishes this goal from the top down. The hair mavens remake clients' coifs with coloring, braiding, and relaxing treatments, and further beautify locks by adding weaves and extensions. Rose pours her decades of experience in both styling and teaching into every service, overseeing the staff stylists of her South Shore salon as they trim and shape new hairstyles or apply flawless coats of makeup.
It would be impossible not to feel pampered at Jan's Skin & Hair Studio. First, guests take a seat in front of a mirror perched on a robin's-egg blue wall, surrounded by brightly colored bouquets and star-shaped lamps. From there, stylists go to work, cutting, styling, and conditioning strands for beautiful new looks. Stylists also add hues and highlights using ammonia-free color. Alternatively, guests indulge in skincare services, such as facials and paraffin-wax treatments. Inside the salon's private room, the staff gets rid of unwanted face and body hair with waxing sessions, which use natural products.
At Carriage House Salon & Spa, stylists beautify clients’ hair with haircuts and highlights and massage therapists ease aches with soothing heated stones. Aestheticians perform lavish spa manicures, moisturizing cuticles and finishing nails with OPI lacquers.
At Simply You, a recently renovated salon outfitted with lanterns, cushy leather chairs, and colorful greenery, Chelsey helps people update their look with professional cut and color services. She can consult with each client on a variety of styles, whether they're looking to just trim excess length or carve out a whole new shape. She can also even out hair's hue with single-process color or add dimension to strands by weaving in highlights or outfitting all your friends and neighbors with 3D glasses.
Electric razors buzz and scissors snip in Burgo's Barbershop, where expert barbers turn shear-shy mops into respectable tops. In addition to tamping down male manes of all kinds, Burgo's treats faces to hot-towel shaves, and trims unkempt beards into dapper designs. The shop also welcomes little gentlemen to sit in its swivel stools for pint-sized haircuts or to sit in meditative silence until their first mustaches appear.
Just because the stylists at D.C. take hair very seriously doesn't mean they have to take themselves seriously. On the salon's front door is a black-and-white photo of Christopher Walken, below which reads "We Accept Walkens." Good-natured riffs such as these help clients feel at home as they seek out a haircut to fit their unique, and often quirky, personalities. D.C. CreationZ is also a proud Matrix concept salon, specializing in color techniques trending here and overseas.
