I had been contemplating for months to go from medium to right-below-the-chin length. I went in with a coupon for Kerastase treatment + cut with Scott. He’s amazing and I can tell that he loves what he does. The treatment alone was worth it, scalp massage and all. The cut was done very thoughtfully and he explained how to blow dry my hair to maintain the style. Scott has magical hands, and was also very pleasant!
I didn’t know the salon didn’t take cards for gratuity and I feel so bad not having any cash with me, considering I used a coupon! I’ll definitely be back in a couple of months and will make up for it then.

I can not say enough great things about this salon. This wonderful gem tucked away at the end of Newbury Street and is extremely easy to get to. I’ve been to this salon twice and Scott has done my hair both times. He is by far the best hairdresser I’ve ever been to. Not only is he super welcoming and sweet, he is extremely thorough and never makes you feel rushed. I’ve never received so many compliments on my hair before. I’ve recommended Scott to my friends and they’ve all loved him as well.

Went to see Scott this evening to try something new. Usually I go and just get a simple buzz cut.
Scott definitely has an eye and discrete attention to detail. He is very precise and cuts hair to a T!!! All by hand, btw, which I was amazed to find out.
He was also very personable and quite social. I highly recommend Scott and Will Charles for anyone not just looking to go to a salon but for a pleasurable experience. You have to check them out and see Scott!! You probably won’t find a better deal on this end of Newbury St.
Definitely worth your every penny!!
So next time you are in the area and want something done. Just come and ask for Scott, you won’t be disappointed.

Officially switching hair salons! The only reason I went to Will Charles in the first place was because I had a college coupon and figured I would take advantage of the opportunity before going back to the (cheap) salon I usually go to. But I’m definitely a convert. The salon is beautiful and everyone there was incredibly nice and everywhere I looked the stylists had a great attitude and spent a lot of time working with their clients.
Scott was my stylist and he was absolutely amazing. He immediately offered me a cup of coffee and then took a whole ten minutes discussing what we were going to do. I was thinking about getting a pixie cut but was really nervous because I have a very round face. He spent the time going through picture I picked out on pinterest and pinning my hair back so I could get an idea of what it would look like. In the end I just decided to go for it.
I’m so happy I did. Scott did an incredible job and spent a lot of time paying attention to the littlest details. He explained to me what he was doing and also the best way for me to style it by himself. His attention to detail is incredible. Also, the nicest man you’ll ever meet.
Definitely going back.

“Hi Scott! Thank you so much for having me! I absolutely loved the blow out and got tons of compliments all day!”

“Really Wonderful. I had a haircut by an apprentice, Scott. He took real time over my hair, wth just beautiful results. I looked in the mirror and actually cried out in surprise and joy. I felt like I’d been healed. I walked out in the street feeling so proud and stylish too; I looked different from everyone I saw around me in the most positive way. I looked just that bit more “knowing” and hip. Also: Scott was incredibly respectful of my limit on how much to cutt off, not taking off 1/4″ more.”

“Scott, everybody is complimenting me that it looks awesome!”

“I was a hair model (read: person getting a free haircut) for their apprentice/junior stylist Scott. Since I found it via Craigslist and free on Craigslist is never a good sign, I was nervous that I would leave looking like a lopsided disaster. But it was AWESOME. Awesome. If you are being offered a free haircut from them, do it immediately. Zero regrets. Everyone was very polite, and Scott seems to have a good eye for details. Nothing happened that I was uncomfortable with, and they didn’t try to make a ton of small talk when I wasn’t being responsive to it which I really appreciated (I have social anxiety, so making small talk is hell-ish.) Since Scott was an apprentice, the haircut was supervised by Erik, who I also felt comfortable trusting with my hair. It felt like even if Scott somehow messed up (he didn’t), Erik wouldn’t let me leave looking awful. I felt very lucky to be there, and my hair came out fucking cool. A lot better than most of the haircuts I’ve paid for. Perfection.”

“Hi Scott, you were just fabulous – at styling and to talk with. I was blown away by your sheer talent and professionalism. I had a vision of what I expected, and it was far overpassed. Thank you again so much! .”
