    First off, Kellyn is a hair magician. There’s no arguing with that. But even more, you can tell she’s a professional that truly cares about her clients’ happiness. She never rushes and makes sure you leave with exactly what you want. Even more than being an amazing stylist and colorist, a visit with Kellyn is a perfect respite from a busy day complete with snacks, wine, and great conversation. Her whole team does a wonderful job. No matter who you go to, you’ll leave with great locks. And if you love dogs, you will adore salon dog Bowie. He is the cuddliest cherry on top of the whole experience.

    Moving from NYC to Boston and not being able find a hair studio has been really challenging. But after my haircut with Maxwell today, I can say that this salon is a-mazing! Not only the talent, but the welcoming vibe (including the cutest puppy you can ever see!) made my day even better. Sometimes you just need a smile rather than 500 reviews + an horrible attitude like other salons in this city. And this salon has everything you need, so do visit – I highly recommended!

    “Max is the best! He is so detail oriented, a true protectionist that you can trust with your hair. He cut off a few inches and gave me the cutest bob ever! I would definitely recommend and will be back!”

    “I’m a regular client of Kellyn’s and am so happy to have found this studio. I’ve gone through several color variations, including color corrections from an older blonde dye job, as I’m so impressed with the quality of work here. I’m also impressed by the attentiveness to hair health and attention to detail during initial color consultations. My experiences within the studio are also great, and it’s a comfortable experience overall! Just went from brown to a vivid purple today, and the end result has blown my mind. I highly recommend their services.”

    “Kellyn is truly the best colorist in Boston, especially for us blondes! I first came to her 8 years ago in major need of a blonde color makeover, and she completely transformed my hair from damaged, striped and brassy to  healthy and completely natural looking. She’s a superstar at creative highlighting, baby lights, balayage and all of the other latest trends, and will create a custom solution for you that works with YOUR hair – usually involving multiple beautiful shades for a true celebrity color effect. Kellyn also taught me how to easily style my own mermaid waves at home so that I love my hair even after my salon visits. Beyond being the absolute best in the city, Kellyn is just a fabulous human being – you will love spending time with her and hanging out in her gorgeous North End studio! “
