Fresh Hair began in 1982 when Joy Silverstein and Marie Doucette left Newbury Street to be in their own neighborhood and do the work they love in an atmosphere they, and you, can enjoy. The two-chair salon quickly became four chairs. Then in 1986 the little grocery on the corner had a fire and went out of business. Fresh Hair grew into that space, adding more styling areas, a retail area, a cosmetics counter, a facial room, a real reception desk and an office. Luci Mansfield was Salon Coordinator for many years and put together the Gift Center in 1996. In 1998, Marie moved home to Florida, and Joy became sole owner. The building façade was renovated in 1999. For everyone’s comfort and aesthetic enjoyment the interior expanded in 2004 to make room for Spray Tanning, a separate hair-drying area, a second bathroom and a center-access shampoo sink. In 2005 a pedicure chaise was added.

Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.

I really liked Margarita. She took charge, like a professional. I got a great cut, great advice, and she answered all my questions.

Patricia, January 23, 2019

I few hiccups, hard to get an appointment, had to extend my Nift (thank you!), and accidentally booked me for a shorter service. They squeezed me on, done fast but well so I really can’t complain!

Nikita, November 4, 2018

I had a pedicure eith Muchelle. Very happy

Olga, October 11, 2018

Everyone was very friendly. It was a cute place, and I appreciated the fact that they use vegan products.

Asha, September 20, 2018

I had a very good experience at Fresh Hair. I think Daria explained everything what she was going to do and what products she was using and guided me on how I can take care of my hair in future. She was very knowledgeable and friendly.

My stylist, Daria, was amazing. She was enthusiastic about my hair and about working with me. She took her time and gave me a great cut and styling. I am super pleased and have made a follow up appointment.

Very pleasing customer service

D'Janapha, April 10, 2018

great re call of the world of JP..without heavy sentiment. that was the kind conversation with hairdresser David. So nice to have met Rating 5

Tamara, April 4, 2018

The service was very friendly and nice, so I would recommend the place based on service. However, I didn't think that the quality of the service was worth the price. I got a hair cut and it was a total of $55 and there was nothing special about the cut!

Vigny, March 2, 2018

The staff and stylists were all very friendly, and did a great job in explaining the products and why they're beneficial!

Deyanira, February 28, 2018

It was great I discovered a great salon I probably otherwise would not have tried.

Catherine, December 7, 2017

My girlfriend has a great experience. When she accidentally messed up a couple of her nails post-manicure the nail technician was very nice and sat her down again to fix them. Very happy with them.

My hair cut was awesome! Thank you!

The service was super great and the facial was excellent...

Susana, September 1, 2017

The staff was extremely helpful and kind. This was the first hair cut I have ever actually liked and the hair dresser did the exact style I wanted. I have already recommended them to my friends and will be sure to return!

Meghan, August 23, 2017

I appreciate the effort to meld my tight last-minute schedule into their booked schedule!

Hilary, August 18, 2017

Fresh Hair is fantastic! I'll be going in next week for a coloring job! Definitely won me over!

Lynette, August 17, 2017

Facial was relaxing, though to be honest I expected a bit more than just a mask and eye/lip treatment I could do at home on myself :(

Jennifer, July 25, 2017


Meredith, June 29, 2017

The esthetician who did my wax was extremely thorough, patient, and professional. Also, the waiting area at the salon has great magazines to read, as well as hot tea. I would certainly return!

Lauren, June 22, 2017

They were really nice and offered great advice about caring for my hair. I have walked by this place many times and this wasn't my first time in because of the nift

Celine, June 13, 2017

Margarita is a hair magician!

Maggie, May 23, 2017

The stylist I had was very accommodating. My hair did not come out as we planned and she scheduled another appointment for free to fix it. I love nift!

This salon was amazing! I had an amazing time. I got my nails and eyebrows done. I can't wait to go back for my hair!

Audrey, March 24, 2017

Margarita was awesome did exactly what I asked and talked me through the whole hair cut to explain why she would do certain things and if that's what I liked
