Local Gem: Davis Hairdressing

Davis Hairdressing, Boston & Newton

If there's one thing that never requires arm-twisting for the JUGs, it's a blowout.  I recently tried a month-long "fling" membership at Davis Hairdressing in South Boston, and I wish I could stop time in its tracks!  From the rustic decor to the welcoming personalities of the staff and stylists, it is easy to feel right at home at Davis.  Regardless of the time of year, not having to blowdry your hair is truly a  l u x u r y. This is where a trusted stylist at your neighborhood salon comes in.

I saw a few different stylists during my enjoyable month-long range of visits.  The wash is arguably unparalleled to other places I've been in Boston (and friends know I do not mess around in this arena), complete with heated towels and generous massage.  Sure, most stylists know ow to wash hair effectively, but the wash at Davis was extremely thorough (invaluable to me, with very thick hair) and relaxing.  I often went in after work, and this appointment became part of my wind-down routine.  I only went in 2x/week, so the wash lasted me a solid 3-4 days/each fling visit.  

I also took advantage of a limited-time promotion Davis is offering (until 8/31), and purchased three products for the price of two.  I often buy products and they sit in a drawer for far too long, but thanks to the direction of my stylists at Davis, I'm already using the kms and kevin murphy products for heat protectant, defrizz agent and dry shampoo, making each blowout last at least another day longer than the norm.

The value

At Davis, you can get a blowout anytime for $42/visit, or the fling for $175 for unlimited visits within one month.  By the time you are onto visit #5, and, yes, your visit being on a Tuesday is excuse enough to book visit #5 in a matter of 2-3 weeks, the fling will have paid for itself!  Davis offers convenient locations in Boston (W Broadway in Southie) and Newton (Newton Highlands).  See you in the next hair washing station, real soon!
