Always takes good care of my curly girl:)

Hair cuts are great. Atmosphere though can be a bit entitled when it comes to customers meeting diva curl preliminary requests. I had placed my hair in a clip while biking to an appointment once and after Shan watched on as the associate let me know that my curls needed to be unaltered (which meant not wearing a clip), he took the initiative of coming over to let me know again of the salon's policy. He did not say hello, or introduce himself but asserted that this was a salon's policy and "not to come to another appointment wearing a clip again." His tone was demeaning and kind of abrasive. I felt like he had placed their standard of regulations on achieving an excellent cut (that I was paying for) over their treatment of their customer as a person. Instead of feeling uplifted, I left feeling put down as a person when I left that day. I will not be returning to the Shan Hair, though the other stylists there have been nice from my experience.

They are completely amazing and know definetly how to handle thick curly hair which I love the most. My hair feels so good everytime I leave my appointment.

I absolutely love this place. I go to school in NYC, but I refuse to go anywhere else. I’ve had some bad experiences elsewhere, meanwhile they are so consistently AMAZING. Highly recommend for curly girls (and everyone else). I go to Antonella and she is a life saver — my hair is always so dry and dead while she is so kind and patient

I recently moved to Boston, and decided to try out Shan Hair based on the great reviews. I got a DevaCut from Antonella, and was very disappointed with the results. I had long hair, about halfway down my back, and told her I just wanted to trim off the dead ends and add in more layers. Before she started cutting she showed me that she was going to cut it to be about 2 inches above my chest and I agreed. I walked out of the salon with shoulder length hair. She basically finger combed and stretched all the curls out of my hair before cutting it, which I feel totally defeats the purpose of a DevaCut. My hair is curlier at my crown than in the back, which I warned her about, but since she had stretched out my curls before cutting I ended up with uneven layers that look very unflattering. Honestly, I pretended to be happy with the haircut while I was there. I was just too shy to say I didn't like it, and the damage was already done by the time she styled my hair and I realized how short it was. I learned an expensive lesson, and will not come back to this salon again.

Shan is hands down the absolute BEST in Boston when it comes to curly hair. Run to see him (if you can get an appointment), you will be so glad you did!

Very nice shop! My stylist Ms. Mimms was fabulous. I really appreciate her wanting to educate her client about hair care!

If you’ve got curly hair, you know how nerve wracking it is to get a haircut—will you leave looking cute, or like a frizzy poodle?? Luckily, at Shan Hair I had no such worries. My stylist Mikayla (a DevaCurl certified specialist) was a master at shaping my unruly curls, taking her time with each section of hair and really listening to what I wanted from the cut. After my haircut I got a shampoo and recommendations for products that would work for my specific curl type! 10/10 would recommend :)

Please be patient and wait for Shan lol. He had a long waiting list so I decided to get my first Devacut in Somerville. The girl did a horrible job to the point other professional even noticed like when I would try and get my hair straighted. This time I went to Shan and he did an amazing job at fixing the damage and keeping the length. Thank you Shan! He used the Arc Angel Defining Job on my hair and spritzed something else on it. The hold was amazing! Love it!

I took my curly-hair son for his first hair cut. I walked out very satisfied. Super friendly, knowledgeable and talented staff. The price was affordable and customer service was top notch.

It has been over a month since I got my haircut at Shan Hair Salon. I am relatively new to the Boston area and had put off finding someone new to take care of my hair, for a while. After a lot of research, I finally decided to make an appointment with this salon. Now when I originally called to schedule an appointment, I was told that they were too busy and that I’d need to go online to schedule. That made me a little nervous considering I had never been to this location and would of liked to directly speak to someone about what I was getting done before I went in. Despite being hesitant at first, I scheduled an appointment for a DevaCut a week from that point. I suppose I should state the condition of my hair before I got it done. It had been well over two years since I had anything done to my hair. Yes...two full years. My hair is naturally curly but overtime my curls turned more into waves and the ends were completely fried from applying too much heat. My dead ends were probably and inch or so long and so pin straight that I couldn’t wear my natural hair down anymore. You can only imagine how ready I was for this cut!! So the day of my appointment came. When I entered the salon, I was greeted by who I am assuming is Shan. He was extremely pleasant and told me to have a seat and feel free to get comfortable while I wait. The salon itself was really cute, cozy and I appreciated the cleanliness. If you’re someone who tends to get overwhelmed by big salons with tons of people walking around, then this is definitely a great place for you. Not only is the salon nice, but you can tell that the staff have a genuine respect for one another and seem to have a great relationship with their regulars. Fortunately for me, my stylist was Antonella. Right off the bat I knew that my hair was in good hands. She was extremely friendly, personable, and obviously had knowledge of what she was doing. I told her that I obviously wanted to remove all of my dead ends and keep my hair so it’s at least touching my shoulders. It was my first time ever experiencing a DevaCut and honestly, I don’t know why I ever let anyone cut my hair differently. This is by far the best haircut I have ever had in my adult life. Over the years I have suffered through some bad cuts which is why it even took this long to get it done. Antonella did a killer job and because of her I finally don’t feel insecure about my hair anymore. I’ve gotten so many compliments since then and will definitely be revisiting for my next cut!!

Shan has taken care of my hair for the past three years and I have nothing but great things to say. I have long, curly hair and I am consistently happy with the results he delivers. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for someone skilled in Deva cutting and taking exceptional care of curly hair. Thank you, Shan!

Best place to go to get your curly hair cut, trimmed, chopped, whatever. Shan understands all curly hair textures, types, styles, etc., including natural curly girls of all shades, backgrounds, ethnicities. Love it here.

Antonella rescued my dying curls! I just got a fabulous haircut, and it was very efficient for a Deva process. I live in Miami but will be planning my haircuts around trips back to Boston. Also, a very sweet member of the team waited with me for 20min after the shop closed, since my ride was late.

Nili Persits

My first Deva Cut with the incredible Antonella! She listened to what I wanted, scolded me (gently) about my lack of conditioner use and then did her magic! I got so many compliments and I just know I'll be back here. She also recommended products but didn't pressure me into buying. This place is professional, friendly and I highly recommend it.

This is the place to go if you have curly hair and live in the Boston area! I have a lot of very thick, curly hair and have bounced around hair dressers until I found Shan and DevaCurl ~5 years ago. He has great attention to detail and I've always loved how my hair looks after it's done. The best part is that he takes the time to teach you how to recreate the look at home so it's not just 1 day of beautiful curls - you can keep it up on your own with some practice. I also had Shan do the hair for my wedding and wedding party and everything came out gorgeous. On my wedding day, my curls stayed beautiful through all of the prep and late night dancing. FYI - if you're driving and can't take the T, I would definitely give yourself an extra 10-15 min to find street parking. Finding spots on Tremont St can take awhile.
