Not worth the price you pay for what you leave with. While my first cut and color was okay, it was definitely not worth upwards of $400. I returned for 2 bang trims, which were both awful! When I tried to contact the salon to let them know I was dissatisfied, no one returned my emails or calls. Since then, I have found an AMAZING stylist in Coolidge Corner, Caitlin at Michael Salon (http://www.yelp.com/biz/michaels-salon-brookline).

Not worth the price you pay for what you leave with. While my cut and color was okay, it was definitely not worth upwards of $400. My service was with Samantha. I returned for 2 bang trims (to try to get my money's worth- not worth it!), one with Samantha and one with a different stylist with Samantha failed to be there for my appointment. Both bang cuts were awful! When I tried to contact the salon to let them know I was dissatisfied, no one returned my emails or calls. Since then, I have found an AMAZING stylist in Coolidge Corner, Caitlin at Michael's Salon on Harvard Ave.

I think the customer service here is absolutely terrible. I received a treatment that cost over 300 dollars at this salon and two weeks later it was offerred at a discount for 160 dollars. The only people who weren't allowed to take advantage of the coupon were those who had already had the treatment.
Thinking this was unfair and given that I have been a loyal customer who often throws business to Samantha, I thought I would get some kind of discount or at least a sincere response when I complained.
What I received instead was a condescending and patronizing email. The manager essentially said 'we appreciate you business etc etc and I'm sure Sam will miss you'. She even had the gall to say 'we are glad that you were able to use your gift certificate at your last visit to the salon'--the implication was I didn't *really* spend over 300 dollars since I had used a gift certificate. The fact that I used a giftcard should have nothing to do with it--I spent a total amount of money close to 400 dollars (with tip) for a treatment that was now being offerred at a substantial discount.
They had no sympathy and were disinterested in trying to retain my business.
Very unprofessional and rude staff.

I've followed Samatha to three different salons in the boston area and I would follow her to a different state if I had to! She is super friendly and makes her clients feel instantly comfortable. I trust her opinion and advice over my own instincts when it comes to both cuts and color. Whenever I feel like my hair/look needs a refresh, I know I can trust Sam to make me look 10x better without making drastic changes. She is equally talented at cuts, color, blowouts, styling... Sam does it all! I've recommended her to 5 friends (guys and girls) and they've all been very pleased with their results.
I also really like the Marc Harris Avery St location. It's very convenient to get there on the T or on foot if you live in the city. The staff is friendly and the salon does NOT have the stuffy, too-cool-for-you feel of some of the Newbury St salons. I've also found it's easier to get a last-minute appointment at this location vs. others.
All in all, highly recommend Samantha and this salon!

I've been going to Samantha for about a year now, and followed her to Marc Harris on Avery St. She is an amazing stylist/colorist and makes you feel right at home. I had long hair for years and years and she is the first person I trusted to cut it short. Not only did she do an amazing job, but she made sure that I felt comfortable the entire time. Now, I can go into the salon, tell her to do whatever she wants and I know my hair is going to look great. I've never received so many compliments on my hair as I have in the last year and I owe it all to Samantha.
I would HIGHLY recommend going to her whether for a trim, color, or a completely new do. I know that I will never stray!

Samantha is the best stylist/colorist I've ever seen. She's been highlighting my hair for nearly four years now. She's always exceptionally careful, detailed, and never rushed and the result is multidimensional, natural-looking highlights. She's also the sweetest, most dynamic and hilarious hair stylist I've ever met and I look forward to chatting with her during my visits. Samantha's best quality is her honesty...I requested that she dye my hair dark brown once and she recommended against it. I did a home dye and, sure enough, it looked absolutely awful! I should have listened to Sam. Now, I just go in and let her do whatever she thinks will look best, and I always walk away feeling AMAZING! And the best part is, it lasts!
I've recommended her to all of my friends and they love her, too. If you're blonde (or any hair color for that matter), she's the one for you.

I would highly recommend Samantha and Salon Marc Harris to friends and others.
I had been going to a salon in Boston for many years, when my stylist packed his bags and moved to Italy. I was devestated because I could just walk in to see him and he would cut my hair in a style that framed my face and made me feel amazing. I had to begin the dreaded search for a new stylist. I called James Joseph and was assigned an appt with Samantha. I sat down with her at the beginning of my appt and we discussed what we should do with my hair..we both decided on a cute new style. After she was finished I
knew that I had found the person who be cutting my hair in the future.
Samantha is a caring and genuine individual who loves what she does for work and treats her customers with respect and makes them feel special . I
I would send anyone to her .

Samantha is a great colorist! I have been a client of hers for 4 years and she does THE BEST blonde highlights (and I have tried many places!). She is fantastic and she genuinely cares that you are happy with her work. She takes the time to understand what you want and she makes it happen, everytime!!!
