ANOTHER BIG WEEK AT SHAG – SALON MAGAZINE + THE PHOENIX POLL

Last week, when Salon Magazine announced the Top 100 Salons In The Country, we were all thrilled to get the news that SHAG had ranked within the TOP 50! Not that we get TOO much sleep here anyway, but it’s a little easier to rest knowing that of the tens of thousands of salons out there, they still can’t forget SHAG…

AND, as much as we love celebrating our successes (who doesn’t), the Boston Phoenix Poll swept right in with TWO nominations for SHAG: Best Color Service and Best Women’s Haircut. The only thing more fun than being nominated is winning, so stop by the Phoenix site and vote for us, or use the buttons below to do it automatically!

THE BEST HAIR EXTENSIONS IN BOSTON

2010 is going to be a big year for hair extensions at Shag. If you’re looking to add length, volume, or thickness to your hair, call us to schedule a complimentary consultation! Extensions can also be used to achieve cool, asymmetrical styles or tide you over while your real hair has time to grow.

At Shag, we use the finest human hair extensions from Italian company Hair Stiletto, which are then applied using keratin bonds. Keratin, as opposed to the glues or waxes sometimes used to put in extensions, is a natural protein already found in your hair. By using the finest quality extensions applied in this damage-minimizing way, we guarantee a uniform, natural look that blends beautifully with your hair.
