Thank you for coming to check out my reviews. These reviews are taken from Yelp, WeddingWire, and emails sent to me from my brides and clients.
“I am so psyched. I live and work in Somerville and have struggled to find a salon and hairdresser I love. I’ll not be looking an further, because Lindsay was awesome and I love my new haircut!
I was able to get an appointment just when I wanted. Found a parking meter right out front. The salon is contemporary and comfortable, adorable and classy.
Lindsay uses and sells nice products, from Italy, I believe she said. She really listened to my requests and gave me a great haircut, best I’ve had in a long time.
I great addition to Ball Square. I’ll be back!
“I found Lindsay in a search for Best Boston Wedding Hair, and soon found out why she has achieved that title. When I emailed to inquire about her availability, she was responsive, informative and professional from the start, and I booked her on the spot! At my hair trial, I knew I had made the right choice! Somehow, she transformed the description of what I wanted into the perfect wedding updo. Not only is she an incredibly talented hairstylist, but she is an incredible person! She’s warm, friendly, outgoing and charismatic and was such a pleasure to work with as we planned for our big day. When our wedding day rolled around, she and Mio were incredible! Their calm demeanor’s were wonderful to have on what can be a whirlwind of a day! They both provided classic, elegant and beautiful hairstyles to my bridesmaids, myself, my mom and my mother-in-law. Everyone’s hair looked incredible! I am so glad I was able to work with Lindsay and her team. She truly is the best Boston wedding hairstylist around! I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you Lindsay and Mio!”

“Lindsay and her styling goddesses have almost celebrity status as they really are the best Boston wedding hairstylist team around. When you walk into the hair salon, its bright, clean, and the staff is always very polite. Besides the amazing hairstyle you’ll walk out with, get ready to fall in love with this mid-century modern, vintage, chic hair studio. They do wedding hair, magazine-worthy haircuts, and have expert color gurus to give you a fresh look. What’s nice is that in addition to totally rocking, they don’t have an attitude like my old Boston salon on Newbury St. which is refreshing! They are a short walk from Davis Square and Ball Square Cafe.”
“Lindsay is the BEST! A friend recommended I see if she was available for my wedding in August and I am so excited she is. I decided to book a highlight/blowdry with Lindsay last weekend. She is warm, funny, so easy to work with and my hair looks great. I would highly recommend Lindsay to anyone-whether you just want to update your look or if you are getting married. She is great and her new studio is gorgeous.”
“Wow, this new Somerville salon is pure gem. From the moment you walk in the door, you feel a sense of being welcome and in professional, capable hands. The decor is inviting and crisp with a modern updated feel. The owner Lindsay is so personable and easy to talk to. So refreshing after having frequented so many salons that make you feel intimidated and pressured. Thanks Lindsay for a wonderful visit.”
“Lindsay is an unbelievably talented stylist and colorist. I’ve been looking to find someone for almost three years that I’m completely satisfied with, and now I have. I’ve dyed my hair from very dark brown/sometimes black to blonde a bunch and though I’ve definitely had some solid, awesome color in the past, many times it has turned out brassy and sometimes fried (Newbury Street, I’m looking at youuu). I also never like getting more than a couple inches cut off my hair (traumatic childhood haircutting experience!). I looked up a bunch of reviews on Yelp and decided to try Lindsay. First, she’s really easy to talk to and the time goes by fast. She listened to me and all of my irrational hair fears without blinking an eye. She mixed up the color and started foiling. She is like the quickest foiler (is that a word?) ever, and she puts the foils close together so everything blends and looks more natural. She gave me a really beautiful blonde that works with my skin tone, etc. She’s done my hair since, and with the same results… I’ve never had brassiness or orange tones come out, and the result is just a gorgeous, shimmery, custom-y color. I originally only went in for a trim, but after I saw what she did with the color, I trusted her. I told her to do whatever she wanted. She cut about 4-5 inches off and gave me the best haircut I can remember. I wake up, brush my hair, and I’m done. It looks styled and has volume and it’s pretty effortless, which is awesome. I’m so happy I found her…she listens to what the client wants, has great but not pushy suggestions, and she’s just damn good at what she does.”
“Lindsay is by far the “best Boston hairstylist”. I booked my first appointment with Lindsay last year through a friend referral. Lindsay made me feel comfortable and at ease. I have curly hair and do not always have much luck finding a style that works for me or finding a hairstylist willing to work with it. I found Lindsay was able to help me with both. She was able to give me some great tips on how to style my hair and gave me a great cut that best fits my curls. Thank you Lindsay!
If you are looking for a great Boston hairstylist, Lindsay is your girl!”
“Lindsay is an amazing colorist and one of the best stylist Boston has seen in a longtime. I myself have been in the beauty industry for a number of years and have had my hair done in top notch salons all over the area. When I came across Lindsay I no longer have to search. She is it! Her passion and drive clearly show in her warmth and work. I have very dark hair that is difficult to color and foil, but not for this chick. I receive so many compliments on my color which is natural and what I wanted. I also had extremely long hair for a longtime and didn’t want to part with it! I finally decided to donate to Locks for Love, Lindsay made what could have been a traumatic experience very comfortable for me with support and giving me a new shorter do that rocked! I am recommending her to all I know you’ll be happy in every aspect.”
“I did not know the first thing about hair for my wedding three weeks ago, and had no idea where to even begin looking especially since I don’t live in Boston. After some seriously hardcore yelping and Googling, I came across Lindsay Griffin and fell in love with her website and blog! All her reviews were consistently wonderful, and I’m so happy I listened to them. Despite calling her with a three month “heads up” about my wedding and despite it being Christmas time, she was extremely accommodating with all the phone calls and scheduling of a trial, which showed she was not someone to get stressed out or would stress me out on my wedding. On top of that, I could not ask for a nicer or more friendly vendor! Not having the slightest idea about how I would do my hair, she totally ran with it and made me look fantastic with minimal instructions. I had a massive wedding party (8 girls!) and Lindsay took on the challenge with an assistant and smoothly and efficiently got everyone looking beautiful with time to spare! This definitely reduced a lot of wedding stress, and I could not be happier with the job Lindsay did! I highly recommend Lindsay for anyone getting married in Boston, you will not be disappointed! She comes to your hotel or wherever you are getting ready, and quickly gets set up in no time and can make everyone look gorgeous!”

“I was part of Leslie’s wedding party (previous review) and it was great working with Lindsay. I told her from the beginning, I want a high pony tail with a bump-it. Not a real bump-it, but some crazy height in the front.
Lindsay is a rockstar and made me look like fergie-ferg…which is not what I usually look like so it took me some time to get used to my look.
I ended up loving it, and truly, it was precisely what I asked for. It looked great all night.
I know other girls weren’t as certain about what they wanted and she worked with them to come up with good ideas. Everyone looked great and Lindsay was a fun person to be chillin’ with on the morning of the wedding.”
-Jessica | Omni Parker House Boston Wedding
“I’ve never been one for drastic haircuts – “a trim and some more layers” was the only thing I told my stylists for 10 years. The first time Lindsay cut my hair it was the same deal, but somehow it just looked better, healthier, and more stylish than any of the “cuts” I’d gotten in the past decade. Lindsay’s warm and bubbly personality makes you instantly feel like she’s one of your best girlfriends (and not at ALL like those people who TRY to make you feel like they know you and end up failing miserably). She also took the time to teach me how to straighten my hair with a blow-dryer and round brush so I could maintain the look myself (and stop killing my hair with a flat iron).
After one more visit for a trim, I decided it was finally time for a real change. I trusted Linsday’s skills (she gave my long-haired best friend an AMAZING short cut and I was envious from the moment I saw it). I showed a couple photos of what I wanted, Lindsay asked some follow-up questions, then proceeded to snip away. I had a few minutes of panic while sitting in the chair looking at all my hair on the ground. Lindsay said “Trust me!” and if it were ANYONE else I probably would have cried on the spot, but I’ve seen her work on my friends and on photos on her website, and I remembered she really is an artist. After she dried my hair, I saw that she had given me THE COOLEST angled bob EVER. You know when you get a haircut and think, “This is the only style I want to have for the rest of my life”? That’s what happened. Lindsay gives you the hair you were MEANT TO HAVE. I would not dream of going to any other hairstylist. Linsday is the BEST.“
“Lindsay was recommended by a friend whose hair looked better than ever. During my first appt. she gave me the perfect amount of highlights, and had such a friendly, easy, professional way about her. So I went back to Lindsay for more color and a cut months later, and could not be more pleased with the style she gave me and how natural and bright my color looks. She’s a very talented stylist!“
“Lindsay is really talented. She gave me beautiful honey blonde highlights that made my natural color look amazing. I’ve gotten highlights in the past, but they always looked like streaks of color that were not well integrated with the rest of my hair. Lindsay’s highlights, however, are just stunning. I could not be happier with them. Lindsay is easy to talk to and really knowledgable about all hair types. She takes the time to talk you through how to care for your hair and makes sure you are using the right products (without trying to sell you anything). Overall, she is just a great hair stylist and a joy to be around.”
“Lindsay is incredibly good at what she does. Before she started snipping away, she asked me about my hair and what I wanted, didn’t want and problems that I’d had with it in the past.
It’s fun talking to her while you’re in her chair, and before you know it, she’s spinning you around. I was very happy with the way my haircut turned out; she really did an awesome job. While I only got a few inches cut and some bangs added, I would definitely see her for any kind of coloring that I wanted. Or really for any hair need I might have.
All in all, Lindsay is a fantastic hairstylist. Her passion for her work and her clients is obvious. She’s fun, upbeat, energetic and full of easy-to-follow advice. I will definitely be seeing her again.”
“Lindsay is a hair genius. She is the person that you want doing your hair and all your friend’s hair for your wedding. She is professional, appropriate, fun and SO GOOD AT ALL TYPES OF HAIR. I would recommend her to everyone!!!“

“I don’t even know where to start!!! Lindsay, from the second I met you I knew you were the perfect hair stylist for our wedding. I felt like after 5 minutes I had known you forever and I couldnt wait for the rest of my bridal party to meet you. On my wedding day I felt the most beautiful I have ever felt in my life and that is all thanks to you and your AMAZING work! My hair was perfect, my veil was placed perfectly, and all my bridesmaids hair looked absolutely stunning. My mom, who was sooo nervous to have her hair done cannot stop talking about you and was telling all of our wedding guests about you. My fiance had tears in his eyes and just kept telling me how beautful I looked. You truly are so great at what you do. Thank you for making this day even more special!!

“Lindsay was absolutely amazing! I was married just last month at The Seaport Hotel in Boston and can’t say enough wonderful things about Lindsay! She is extremely talented, professional,reliable and had such a calming effect on such a big emotional day. My whole bridal party, mother of the bride looked beautiful and I just loved my hair. I would highly reccomend Lindsay as she is The Best Boston Hairstylist. Thank you Lindsay!”
– Cindy | Seaport Hotel Boston Wedding
“Lindsay just made my day! She exceeded my expectations and made me feel so beautiful for my wedding. My bridal party was so pleased also with the way she styled their hair and made each and every one of us all feel so special. Not only is she talented, but she has such a great personality and really seems to love the whole wedding experience and had a way about her to make everyone relax and be at ease when we were all under so much stress to get ready on time and have everything turn out perfectly.”
Anne R. | Crane Estate Castle Hill Wedding
“I am so excited to see that Lindsay won a Weddig Wire award, although I am not surprised since she is such an amazing hairdresser! She was extremely professional and gave great suggestions as to what would work for my hair (I have really curly hair and didn’t want it straightened). After talkiing to her I could tell she was really passionate and knowledgeable about hair which really put me at ease for the big day. The results were beautiful, I highly recommend Lindsay!“
“She was great!!! Our hair was perfect for my wedding. She came early, and stayed until we left for the church. Even helping with the veil. My hair stayed in and beautiful all night.”
– Andrea H. | Harvard Club of Boston Wedding
“This long overdue review is for my hairstylist who not only rocked when she transformed me on my wedding day but also won over my entire bridal party and mother. She was responsive from the moment I contacted her and arrived early for my hair trial before my wedding day. On the big day, it was important for me to have a wedding hairstylist who was professional and would be able to keep a cool head in a hectic atmosphere. Our hotel suite was a total zoo but Lindsay stayed on schedule and did some fabulous updos and blowouts for all of us. As my current stylist for highlights and keratin treatments, she was able to recommend the perfect look to go with my face shape and gown. Two of my bridesmaids are using her for their weddings coming up and I will be a bridesmaid in one of them. I’m psyched to work with Lindsay Griffin again!”
– Tricia B. | Omni Parker House Hotel Boston Wedding
“Lindsay does amazing highlights that look super natural and she really LISTENS. When I wanted to brighten up my blonde but don’t like red in my hair aka “warm tones” she managed to find the perfect color. I also wanted to go shorter and she made sure that I was happy with my length, side bang, and layers through the entire process. I have been using her for two years and she never disappoints. It is so hard to find a good hairstylist with integrity and talent, but Lindsay has all of those qualities.”
“Lindsay has amazing work ethics and is very professional. I have always had long hair and decided after 25 years it was time for a new change, I was referred by my cousin to Lindsay and I am so thankful I listened. Lindsay made me feel very comfortable and listened to what I was looking for and added a bit of her expertize. She added natural looking highlight and gave me a cut that I absolutely love! She also Added layers for volume like I requested. I am looking to go a bit shorter and I will definitely be going back to see Lindsay for part 2 of my transformation! I would highly recommend Lindsay not only can she cut conservative cuts and hairstyles she can also do more of the edgy looks. Lastly, she created a evening elegant look with my natural curls that I loved which would be great for a wedding party. Thank you so much.”
“I have gone from Salon to Salon searching for someone who could give me what i actually wanted with great service…then I found Lindsay..I was able to bring in some pictures of an idea for coloring my hair…and she nailed it….she wass able to give me the color ans style in a 35 minute time period…pretty amazing!! have to say im so happy i found her for my hairs sake! :)”
