As a realtor in Boston, it seems like I’m always being asked for suggestions of service providers or contractors. People moving to the Boston area in particular will arrive here with a clean slate. Do you know of a great stylist/hair salon for example? Okay, I have to, admit that question is asked not as much to me as to my wife; however, I still have to do my due diligence to have a top assortment of referrals on hand that I can suggest at a moments notice.
In the case of a hair salon, my suggestion would be a resounding, “two thumbs up” to Umi Salon on Newbury Street (www.umisite.com). Located at 75 Newbury Street, this twenty-time “Best of Boston” winner is head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to hair and making it an art form. For owner Jeffrey Dauksevich, this mastery of the craft combines structure and flow as well as aesthetics and culture.
Having grown up with a grandfather who was a stylist/salon owner, it would be easy to see that the business was in his genes. Taking to this profession, Dauksevich worked as a stylist for many years before turning to Lesly di Stefano in the spring of 2000 to join forces and open up Umi Salon. And like Dauksevich, whose background growing up also included a passion for the arts as well as mathematics (he was a physics major in college), the stylists who work for him also have a similar passion for artistic and creative thinking.
Nationally recognized as Boston’s premier salon, Jeffrey Dauksevich is highly regarded as one of the top hair experts in the country by style editors in fashion publications including W, Allure, InStyle, Elle and WWD. In addition, their team of master colorists offers custom and corrective hair coloring services, as well as specialty services including Keratin treatments and custom hair extensions.
Haircutting services range in price from $90 to $400. Color services begin at $100 and Keratin treatments from $700 and up.
In addition, Umi Salon has their own professional line of hair products available to purchase at their Newbury Street location or online at: here.
As a preferred provider of mine I have been able to obtain a special introductory offering as long as you mention my name. First time clients will receive a complimentary in-salon Umi Deep Treatment with any service ($75 value).
