The Best and Friendliest Salon!

I've been going to Spa Christene for over 2 years now. I have to admit, before Spa Christine I had been going to Super Cuts, Cost Cutters, Master Cuts etc since graduating from college. I have super easy and manageable hair and since i Was just keeping it long i didnt feel the need to spend money on a high end Boston Salon. Well, in my late 20's I decided it was time to spruce things up. I had recently purchased a condo in Southie so i did some investigative work and decided to try Spa Christine. My first appointment was with Larry one of the owners. He kept me entertained and laughing the entire time. I had no clue what I wanted but I gave him some basic requirements: nothing drastic and I need to be able to pull it back to work out. Larry gave me a fabulous cut shaped around my face. The cut concluded with his signature mark: a quick shoulder massage! what could be better! I got rave reviews, everyone LOVED my hair. My next appointment I called but Larry was completely booked. Not to fret, Ariel cut my hair and again it was awesome. I've been going to Ariel ever since. I have recommended several people to Ariel and everyone loves what she is able to do with their hair.

The spa upstairs is also incredible. I tend to get the 1 hour massage every time I schedule a hair cut. The staff is extremely talented and professional and the massage is very modestly priced for Boston. This past summer I treated myself to a facial and it was sensational and so relaxing!

I have purchased gift certificates to the salon for several friends and everyone is so appreciateive. and speaking of gifts, the front end of the salon is a wonderful boutique with everything from creative and unique baby gifts to humerous and witty cocktail napkins. They have something for everyone on your list.

Great cut, of course -- but a really nice place, too!

I found Spa Christine because I needed to follow Ariel Brekka from her old workplace on Newbury Street. Ariel's been my hairstylist for a little over 4 years now, and I have to say, her cuts have gotten even better over time! It's probably because of all the experience, but it could also be because the environment at Spa Christine just feels much more relaxing and much less anxiety-making than the hectic scene in Newbury salons. Spa Christine has all the high-end trappings of the Salon Row spas -- it's impeccably clean, carries the best product lines and a big selection of fun, unique gifts, has a nice soundtrack running and professional staff/owner/stylists -- and all without the crowd & hustle.
On the subject of the kind of excellent cut Ariel gives me -- she manages to make my otherwise unruly mess of not-kinky, not-quite-wavy curly hair into a flattering, easy-to-maintain, toss-able mane, and she's seen me through a number of different hair lengths over the years. I haven't needed her to color me yet, but that's coming very soon, and there's no one I trust more (she usually sports some awesome color herself). We always have a good chat while she works, too. So she's a really sweet gal who really knows her stuff.
Admittedly, I haven't taken advantage of the other services that Spa Christine offers, but from the general environment & professionalism of the place, I'd say the chances are pretty good for a good experience.

Great customer service

I recently relocated to South Boston from Florida and decided on Spa Christine for my color and haircut. I was introduced to Ariel Brekka in November and cannot imagine going to anyone else. She is not only a professional hairstylist but very personable and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone. I have continued to go to her for the last few months and have gotten so many compliments on my hair.""
Please contact Ariel Brekka for any hairstyling needs you may have. She truly is a professional.

Cherrisse & Nisa- the go-to tag team for long hair

I have extremely long, thick, blonde hair so working on me isn't a short process, but I have NEVER felt rushed at Spa Christine. Nisa is absolutely a jem, between her scalp massage and soothing voice, she definitly helps to remove any stress from the day. Once in the chair Cherrisse comes alive with ideas that are always spot on. (my most recent idea was brown, but she reminded me blonde I am and blonde I should stay). I have had random people ask me at bars who does my color and have sent many a people to Cherrisse. With fantastic color and a flawless cut, topped off by warm tea, hillarious conversastion, super flexible hours and a cute boutiqe with great gift ideas, it doesn't get better then Spa Christine. I encourage you to try it, but hope not everyone does, cause then I'll never be able to get in again!!!

Cherrisse Houston Best Stylist in Boston

Cherrisse has been working with me for about a year and half. I always leave the salon loving my hair and loving my look. She makes me feel welcomed and does a great job. If you are looking for a new hair stylist I highly recommend Cherrisse. You will love what she can do for you.

Cherrisse is my #1

Not only is Spa Christine an overall beautiful salon, but Cherrisse Houston is definately one of there best assets. She is beautiful, stylish, welcoming to new clientele, and unbelievably talented. I just moved to this area and chose the salon based on some reviews on other sites. I have now gotten 3 haircuts by her, all different styles, and all have been PERFECT. I can't ever remember a time where I have left a salon 100% happy with the cut....there is not even 1 hair out of place. She is honest with what will work or not, she has great suggestions, and really performs each cut to her best ability. For $55 you get a sweet head massage in addition to your shampoo, a fabulous haircut, and a back massage before you head out the door....Get her now because I want to warn you that someday when I make it big in life, I am stealing her away to do my hair everyday- just FYI! Go to her now!

Cherrisse is my favorite stylist

I've been going to Cherrise now for over a year and each time I walk out of the salon I feel like a star. Cherrisse does things to my hair that I didn't even know could be done! The prices at Spa Christine are reasonable - for a partial color, cut, straightening it cost $110. Not bad when you think how expensive it is to go one mile down the road to Newbury Street. If you are looking for a talented stylist - Cherrisse is exactly what you need.

Cherisse is the best!!!

I have been going to Cherrisse since I moved to Boston 7 years ago. I would follow her anywhere, though luckily she is at a super-cute day spa called Spa Christine. I tend to wake up too late to style my hair most days, but the haircuts Cherrisse gives me are so amazing that my hair looks great anyway. (for weeks too). Most stylists could not figure out a way to control all my cowlicks, but Cherrisse is the best! She gives such great shape to my hair. She will give suggestions or pros and cons of the styles I like upon request, but she is never pushy. And Cherrisse can do anything--I have had so many styles from long to really, really short. Going to get my hair cut is such a relaxing treat--and very reasonably priced too. I highly recommend Cherrisse to anyone, with any kind of hair.

Lori is the best aesthetician!

Lori is the best! I have been getting facials from her for over two years and she always does an amazing job. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her! Not only does you skin look great, you leave feeling very relaxed. Whenever I get compliments on my skin - I know that I owe it to Lori!

Best Spa in town!

I have been going to Lori for my waxings for years. She is the best aesthetician out there. I wouldn't think about going to anyone else! The atmosphere is great. The people there are friendly! It's a great place to relax!

Best Spa Services in Boston

I moved to Boston 7 years ago. Of course went straight to Newbury Street for my spa services. What a disappointment...4 different salons later. Then I found Spa Christine. Not only is the salon beautiful and friendly, but they offer the best services in all of Boston. Cherisse is an unbelievable stylist and Lori gives the best facial and waxing. True professionals and great people. I won't go anywhere else.

best bikini wax

I started going to Spa Christine back in December because I was curious about bikini waxing. From the get go Sonia was understanding of my newness to the art of bikini waxing, and she made me feel much more comfortable about the whole process. I was given a disposable panty to wear, and she worked inwards according to what I felt ok with and if I was in any pain. She is great for first timers because each step leaves off in a way that will not leave you lop-sided if you can't do anymore. The fact is, her method and the wax that she uses is so painless that I was able to do the full bikini wax the first time I went.. The conversation during the whole process is never awkward - she's such an interesting, funny person and very easy to get along with. You can tell that she is able to read into what you are comfortable with having done. I keep going back, and I even got a Brazilian wax the last time I went!

Spa Christine is Wonderful!

I was so pleased to hear that a new Spa opened in Southie. I have had the worst luck trying to find a good and reasonably priced stylist until now. I felt so comfortable with my stylist, had a nice glass of tea (french-pressed) and got the best haircut I've had in years (and a quick massage afterwards).

For all of you who live in (and love) Southie, please give this Spa a try! We need to support our Southie businesses so that we make Southie the best place to be in Boston!

Thank you Citysearch! I found a gem!

I am new to South Boston (and Mass.) - I moved here from Chicago in September for work. I originally thought I would just get my hair done when I go home to visit, but it hasn't been working out - so I had to find a stylist in Boston. I came to the Citysearch website to find a new stylist in my neighborhood and was very impressed with the reviews for Spa Christine and made my appointment with Cherrisse, the senior stylist for a cut and color. I was scared, as I have gone to the same stylist since I was 16.

Well (I hope that my Chicago stylist never sees this...), I never knew that my hair could look this good! The cut that she gave me is totally flattering and I feel like a new woman! I always paid a fortune for hi-lights and low-lights and a single process color ($250 every 6 weeks!) and she explained to me that I only needed hi-lights over my natural color and it looks great.

I feel like Cherrisse's top priority was making me look my very best and she was not thinking about how to make the most money on me. I appreciate her honesty and integrity (and, of course, her talent!)

Great Experience....not what you would think of a southie spa!

Great Experience....not what you would think of a Southie spa!

I had Larry the owner and head stylist, a couple weeks back and he was amazing, actually the whole experience was amazing. A friend recommended the place and she wasn?t lying when she said it?s not what you would think of a spa in Southie. The building it?s self is amazing with extremely open floor plan. They treat you wonderfully offering you anything from coffee to a glass of wine. I had a double process color and style and loved everything about it. My friends couldn?t believe that I left my previous Newberry solon to try out Spa Christine but trust me when I say the result and complete experience was superior to anything I?ve every gotten on Newberry St.

Best waxing (Lori) & Best cut/hi-light (Cherrisse)

I love Spa Christine! I can get a great haircut (I recommend Cherrisse) and waxing, facials, massage right in my neighborhood now. The front desk staff are always friendly and helpful and ALWAYS find a way to accomodate my ""last minute emergencies"". Thanks to my esthetician, Laurie, my skin looks better than it has in years. Spa Christine is also a great place to buy gifts and they have Bumble & Bumble products (make sure you buy the 2 oz for air travel, I learned the hard way!)
