Jenny began her career in the early 90’s in Indianapolis, Indiana and, after building a large clientele, she decided she needed a challenge and started over in Boston, Massachusetts. 16 years later she remains passionate about hair and loves creating looks that are new & fashionable but also timeless & classic. Jenny has had extensive training in Goldwell hair color, Deva certified, Blow Pro certified, and Beth Minardi signature color line and Joico.

Jenny was featured in the March issue of Allure magazine for creating natural long lasting highlights. (“Rising Stars”). Many of Jenny’s clients have revealed that even after 8 weeks their highlights and hair cuts still look great, and they continually receive compliments. Jenny’s goal is to help her clients create a great look through color and perfect, balanced cuts that last up to 12 weeks.
Jenny shares that “We have grown so much and have learned even more over the last 11 years. Our new location is amazing and we are very excited about all of the changes that are going on in our area. Being a small business owner has it’s challenges, but I still have the same passion for coloring and cutting as I did the first day I started.

Since 2001, Derek has been a hair designer working in cool salons on Newbury Street and in the South End. With an artistic sensibility, his work in hair color has motivated him to dive deeper into the latest techniques and science. He earned a certification in balayage and modern ombre from Eva Scrivo in NYC. Whether you want to cover gray, have some fun while still looking professional, or go completely wild, he will help you achieve the look you want.
Blessed with spiral curls, he is the obvious go-to-guy for all your curly-hair needs. Although well versed in the “Deva” technique, he now no longer offers that service. Instead, he offers the “Derek” technique. Cutting hair wet and still utilizing the “Deva” products, you will enjoy your hair adventure. But fear not straight-haired folks, his wife (and first hair model) has “pathologically” straight hair – so you’re in good hands! His overarching sensibility is to work with and care for your natural hair texture rather than fighting against it.
His diverse creative history includes acting, music, painting, filmmaking and wood-carving, giving him a variety of inspirations for your hair. He is also excellent in the kitchen and loves cats and travel.”
