You need to go to Wendell at Leeba on State Street. Not only is he devastatingly handsome, but he really listens to his customers and their needs. I've been seeing Wendell for more than 3 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my highlights. I always get compliments on my hair. Once I was even stopped on the street by a stranger to ask where I get my hair colored. Just recently Wendell recommended a Keratin treament for my hair which can be prone to frizz. Not only is it straight, shiny and frizz free, it now takes me no time to style it. 5 minutes to dry it and I don't need to flat iron all the time. I highly recommended Wendell.
I have lived in Boston for three years and Leeba salon is the only salon I trust with my hair. Before when I got highlights done at other salons the color wouldn't be right or the highlights would be uneven. But here at Leeba they know what they are doing and take their time! I've never been disappointed here. Plus they all do an awesome job with cuts and blow drys. Everyone here knows what they are doing so I trust any of the stylist. Plus the staff is so nice! This salon is very clean. That's one major thing I look for in salons and if they are not clean then forget it. But here at Leeba everything is clean and the atmosphere is modern.To top it all off their prices are amazing. I would recommend this salon to anyone in Boston!
Hello everyone!!!! I am a regular customer of Leeba Salon, and honestly I have never ever had a better experience. Mariela is one of the stylists that work there and she has been doing my hair cuts and hair colors since 2008! SHE IS GREAT! I have tried so many other salons but she does the best job ever! She is very professional, takes time to listen to the customers and really does a good job accomplishing what you asked for. She is also very caring and takes pride in her work,I went to get my hair done not very long ago and the results were great! Mariela is also very gentle with your hair when I walk out of Leeba Salon I just love my hair. The other guys there are very good too, I highly reccomend a visit at Leeba Salon!
Always a great haircut!!!! Schedule an appointment with Marela at Leeba Salon on State Street. She is always pleasant and she really does an amazing job! I have been a client of hers for over 2 years and have NEVER been disappointed. It is such an easy walk from work so if you work in the financial district it is such an easy lunch time cut! Thank you Marela!
If you want a great cut or a new look, you have to make an appointment with Saliba Shako, owner and stylist @ Leeba Salon. He's a professional and talented hair stylist who knows his business - and in my opinion is "simply the best"! I've been a client of his at the State Street salon for almost a year now, and have to say he does an awesome cut and an incredible highlight. It's amazing how many compliments I get (even when I'm due for a cut)...thank you Saliba! I've been to quite a few salons, but the search is over....I've got the best stylist in Boston! So don't hesitate, call Leeba Salon and request Saliba, you won't be disappointed!
I have been to Leeba several times and usually I am very satisfied with my waxing service. However, today I walked out with two eyebrows that were uneven. I returned to my office only to look in the bathroom mirror and see a noticeable change between my left and right brows. One was thinner than the other which is disappointing because I have been trying to grow them out a bit. Two of my co-workers noticed the difference too. So I had to go back and have the one I actually liked made thinner to match the other. The employees were apologetic which was appreciated. I am wondering if the fact that I was in a room where they did not use a magnified mirror to perform the waxing and shaping was part of the problem. A little leery to go back since the services are a bit pricey.
There are no refreshments offered here, and no shampooers. There was no consultation to what I wanted to do with my hair before it was washed. My scalp was burned by the hair dryer. I shudder to think about what was happening to the rest of my hair if my scalp was getting burned. I definitely won't be going here again.
Pros: Convenient location
Cons: They're too rough with your hair
When I first walked into Salon Leeba, I was impressed, it seemed upscale and had a very European feel to it. Unfortunately, I received some very creepy comments and looks from the owner (Leeba i.e. Saleeba) as he was styling my hair. I felt it was very inappropriate and would not feel comfortable going back there. And to top it off, my cut cost more than twice what I had paid at my previous hair dresser's salon..!!
Bottom line, not recommended.
I have been seeing Saliba both at the Leeba in Brookline and at the State Street location for two years now. He is great! I have very thick hair and he does the best job cutting it! He thins it out very nicely. It is a bit pricey for just a hair cut, but I will keep going back to see him!
The place itself is ok, could be a bit cleaner.
I've been in boston for a while now and have tried many many places for the eyebrow waxing...and i would never be satisfied. I found some good places...but nothing great until I went to Leeba. I had my eyebrows threaded and it was great...finally, a good threading place in Boston! Leeba is a trek for me, but its worth it!
Pros: so precise!
Cons: a bit expensive for threading...much cheaper in other cities
For cut and color there isn't a better place than the Leeba Salon in Downtown Crossing! George is a literal genious when it comes to short hip cuts and blonde coloring. I went to George for years, then for some stupid reason stoppied going to him. I recently returned and I actually like my hair again. Seriously he is the absolute best. And Leeba is affordable too. I won't go astray again. My loyalty is with George and Leeba from now on.
Cons: the employees' english is so so
The staff members at Leeba have gorgeous eyebrows; apparently they have them waxed elsewhere. I was already well on my way to looking like the victim of a tragic accident when the woman perpetrating the waxing started raving about how much she loves doing hair and waxing is just something she "picked up." The front-desk attendants actually laughed when I complained. Shame on you, Leeba, for scheduling appointments with someone unqualified. Let her practice on your snotty employees while she's training, and keep her away from the unsuspecting public.
Cons: Inept staff, high price ($18, and it doesn't include the eyebrow pencil you'll need after)
