At FrancesRay Jules Salon, stylists shear, color, and straighten tresses, polish nails, and pamper skinscapes, earning laud as having Boston?s Best Waxing by CityVoter in 2009 and voted as best salon in 2006 and 2007. Expert hands style manes into elegant updos and brush Jules Makeup over eyes and cheeks before wedding ceremonies or bouquet-toss cage matches. Epidermises rejuvenate with facials, waxing, and body treatments such as an exfoliating body glow with sea salts and essential oils. FrancesRay Jules Salon's aestheticians wield professional products as they transform exteriors, treating nails to OPI polish and locks to Farouk BioSilk and Moroccanoil to leave locks stronger than a bodybuilding grizzly bear.
Salon 101's stylists are already well-versed in the art hair designs, style, and colors. But that doesn't stop them from taking their skills to the next level with continuing education classes each month, where they also stay updated on the latest techniques and trends. This, combined with Salon 101's family-friendly, welcoming vibe, ensures that every guest who sits in a styling chair will feel at ease. The salon offers everything from cuts and styles to keratin treatments and real hair extensions that attach with keratin bonds for ease on the hair and scalp. Along with hair care, Salon 101 offers soothing aqua massages where powerful jets pulsate warm water from the toes to neck, and back again, and as a bonus, this magic happens all while you are fully clothed and dry.

Amid peach-hued walls, Carriage House Salon & Spa’s team of stylists and aestheticians lavishes patrons with hair, skin, and nail treatments. Under beaming track lights and sun rays pouring in from floor-to-ceiling windows, hairdressers tend to tresses on the salon floor, where locks can be snipped off or coiled into occasion-ready updos. Nail stations brim with much more than polish, as many treatments can be supplemented with a warm paraffin wrap that hydrates skin and eases discomfort endured by people with arthritis. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists unfurl knotted shoulder and neck muscles. During facials, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products and techniques stimulate lymphatic systems and dress skin in natural plant and mineral extracts brought to the spa by a friendly wood nymph.
On her journey from a student’s chair at the Vidal Sassoon Academy to her new owner’s perch at Salon Ell, hairstylist and owner Kelly Almeida accumulated 10 years of technique and an acute knack for contemporary styling. Haircuts, coloring, and texturizing may be the marquee attractions at the salon, but Rosa, the in-house aesthetician, holds her own with a spate of facials that rectify wrinkles and monocle scars and bring the skin to a youthful glow. Makeup artists and manicurists add finishing touches with cosmetics and classic mani-pedis, and waxing technicians make sure no unwanted hairs peek through bathing suits, tank tops, or fake mustaches.
