    “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! “
