I met my hairstylist, Jessie, at her old salon and she recently switched salons to Salon Marc Harris. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt welcome. Inside is gorgeous - everything you'd expect from a downtown Boston salon (the lofty feel, upbeat music, modern furniture, open feel) - and the location is great! Normally costs me about $80-90 for a haircut+tip with Jessie, depending on if there are any discounts (there were at her old salon, not too sure about here) but honestly, she's worth every penny. I'd pay more if I had to. There's also a full Spa downstairs, I didn't get to see it, but it has it's own separate entrance. I can imagine it's gorgeous as well. Steps away from Fanuiel Hall, South Station, great bars and restaurants. Luckily for me it's about a 10 minute walk from where I work.
As mentioned previously, I followed Jessie from her old salon to SMH. She's great at what she does! She's personable, reliable, LISTENS to the client, and most of all - talented. She's never pushed products on me to purchase, just has been honest with me telling me what my hair needs and what I can do to get the best out of it.
So, considering she's just moved to this salon, if you're looking for a great new hairstylist I would have to highly recommend Jessie. I don't care if she starts working at another salon someplace else, I would literally follow her anywhere.

I followed Jensy Padilla to Salon Marc Harris and I love Marc Harris' layout and atmosphere which is very spacious and relaxing. Jensy does an amazing job with my blond highlights and with cutting hair and he always makes me laugh. When he is finished with my hair, i always am very happy with the results and I leave feeling like a million bucks. I did try another Salon between following Jensy to Marc Harris and my blond highlights came out awful. I am so happy that I stayed with Jensy at Marc Harris

I've tried a lot of differnt spas in Boston over the years, and Shannon Conry at Marc Harris on Broad Street delivers the very best facial in the city. I followed her to Marc Harris from another location on Newbury Street, and although I was first leary of the new location (a longer, less pretty trip from Back Bay), and it is worth the trip every time.
Shannon takes a personal interest in her clients, and makes the appointment into the experience you want it to be. Each facial is truly a refuge for the skin and mind!
Shannon uses terrific products and is incredibly knowledgable about them - she talks you through everythign she is using each time.
An overall great experience, and my skin continues to love it!

I am not new to the spa scene at all. For business and pleasure, I travel alot and am always going to new spas. Some of my favorites are in NYC, LA, and actually Alberta, Canada (who knew?).
Unfortunately, it was hard to come across an excellent facial in Boston. I felt alot of the esthetician lacked expertise (i.e. knowing the ingredients of products, using the wrong type of treatment on my skin, etc), and were not passionate about their work.
About three years ago, I met Anne Cecile, and had the best facial ever! She was well-trained in France, and now she is always traveling to conferences to keep up with the latest news in skincare. I get compliments on my skin and how flawless it is all the time!! I see her every 4 - 6 weeks.
My skin is very sensitive.. and I have yet to be disappointed with any of the treatments that she uses. She is the person to see if you want a fresh glow to your face... it has definitely help me meet a guy or two :)

I came to Marc Harris after having several unfriendly encounters with a few spas on Newbury Street. Not only is the staff friendly but you feel instantly relaxed once you are brought in. You are always seen on time which is important given that I work during the day and have strict lunch hours. The services are great and resonably priced compared to other salons/spas in the area as well. I would highly recommend!

You definitely ""feel the love"". Not like some Newbury St Spas where they think they're doing you a favor. Hands down, Bea gives the best facial in Boston.
Paul remembers all his clients and is genuinely happy to greet them. He is never too busy to stop and say hello.

I went to Salon Marc Harris after reading the great reviews online. I needed a touch up of my highlights a new cut. The receptionist paired me up with Steven Doherty, one of the senior stylists. It was an awesome experience to finally get my hair done by somebody who is an expert!!! It was the fastest appointment (less than 3 hours, when other Newbury salons take longer than 3 hours), I got great conversation, a wonderful head massage during my shampoo, and an AMAZING color and cut. Everybody I know just loves it..and so do I!! I wish I would have found him sooner!

I'm that person who's been to almost every spa in Boston in search for the perfect facial and my search finally ended after discovering Shannon at Marc Harris in the Financial District. I have been seeing Shannon regularly for facials and have noticed a total change in my skin! She has an abundance of knowledge when it comes to targeting /treating my specific skin care needs and has provided me with all the tools to keep my skin looking its best in between my facials. I'm absolutely obsessed with the very affordable Rhonda Allison skin care line and couldn't imagine using anything else (I've used them all too)...there's many different RA products you can choose from to target your each and every skin care need. I use the Brightening line to treat my hyperpigmentation issues and have noticed a remarkable difference.
I am so happy to have found Shannon at Marc Harris and challenge anyone who is looking for skin care results and an amazing spa experience to try her....you will definitely NOT be disappointed.
I also should mention I had my first haircut with J.Lee last week and was extremely happy with my cut. I am seeing her soon for a color because I hear she is excellent!

So the salon is in the middle of nowhere. I had to trek down here after I kept seeing ads in the Improper Bostonian and Stuff at Night. I have a lot of friends who have worked in the salon industry over the years and they all had great things to say about the owner and how he trains his stylists so I made an impromptu stop in and got one of the best haircuts (if not the best) of my entire life. My stylists name was Christine. I went in not really knowing what I wanted so she talked to me about what I didn?t want and what hadn?t worked in the past. Then she made a few suggestions. Talked to me about my color and within a few hours, I looked like a new more fabulous me. Needless to say, I love love love her. She?s a genius. I?m def. sending all my friends (and even taking time to review her).
