Moved from NY - tried 2 other places - more expensive ones including in Newbury st. Lori at Joi salon is simply the best. Professional and knows her job - She performed where others failed. Quick and caring.

I had just moved to the boston area and was extremely nervous about trying a new person to cut my hair. After long consideration I finally decided to take the plunge and lucked out with edna... she took the time to listen to what I wanted and suggested the right products for my hair. I was so happy with the results I booked my next appointment...

I wanted to send out an amazing review to Joi Salon. This is a very friendly, small, neighborhood kind of salon. Jess, the salon coordinator is superb at her job and if you have any sort of issue or need she will help you. She is also great at referring the perfect stylist/esthetician for you and your needs. I would trust Liz or Jill for ANY waxing that you may need. They are both amazing people and very professional. They do great facials too! Melissa's pedicures are to die for! Even if the price seems steep or more than what you are used to, I can assure you that you have never had or will have a comparable pedicure. She is amazing. If you are lucky enough to get an appointment with Tina, or if you are an existing client, you know she is the best! Unfortunately, she does not take new clients though due to her busy schedule. But, after working at Joi for the past 2 years, I have moved back closer to my family in Indianapolis and I am now working at Salon Orange Moon there. So, to all my clients who are still at Joi and for anyone else that needs a recommendation, I assure you that you are in great hands with Keri (make sure you request her!!) She is very much like myself and I know you'll love her. :)

Pros: open nights and weekends, make sure to ask for Keri for hair

Cons: nothing

Kelyn gives an outstanding haircut and never tries to talk you into anything. Over time she gets to know what you like, what works with your hair and I have always left thrilled.
No need to get into detail about waxing- bottom line is that Liz is the BEST in Boston, hands down.

I went here for a haircut and chatted with my stylist about trying something new. I ended up with exactly the same haircut that I walked in with, only about 5 inches shorter. The stylist was perfectly nice, but I though the receptionists were rude. This is also an Aveda salon and I can't speak for their other services, but I don't think I would return for another haircut.

If you are looking for the best brazilian wax in Boston look no further! Liz at Joi Salon is the best.
I have been looking for a long time and been to many different places. This time my hair was not even long enough but some how Liz managed to get it all out. She made me feel very comfortable and to top things off it was the quickest and the least painful Brazilian I have ever gotten! and I have had MANY from at least a dozen different ladies. Thank you Liz! you are truly the best!

Pros: The best Brazilian wax in Boston

Cons: Parking. You have to pay for parking because there is none off the street

I love the Joi Salon! It is a great place. It is so convenient if you live in the North End. I hate going all the way to Newbury for a sub-par cut and color.
As far a highlights...Kellyn knows what she is doing. My hair looks natural and bright. The right mix of highlights and lowlights. And she is such a pleasure to be around! She also saved me from a bad cut a few months ago!!
I'll never stray from Joi. As long as Kellyn is there- I'm there!

Cons: NONE ;)

I had the pleasure of having a facial at the Joi Salon and Spa Escape. Just heaven! I'm no stranger to having a facial done and this was amongst the best I've ever had.

I was relatively new to the city, and needed to find a new brazilian waxer for myself. After doing a ton of research I came across reviews for Jill at Joi Salon. She was amazing-she totally put me at ease, she really relaxes you and is very nice. It was the quickest and most painless brazilian I've ever had! After seeing her a bunch more times I decided to treat myself to a facial with Jill. Let me tell you-it was the best facial I've ever had. The mood was set instantly with candles, lighting, music and the most comfortable bed ever. We discussed my skin and what I was interested in doing, but beyond that she wasn't chatty which I loved because I just wanted to relax!! Her massage was the best, and I think I may have fallen asleep. When I floated out of there an hour later, my skin was clean, soft and gleaming! I highly recommend both Jill and Joi Salon, everyon seems really nice and helpful...

Jill is absoutely great- she has quick hands and uses hard wax, which is a lot less painful than European wax that most estheticians use. This is hands-down the most painless brazillian waxing experience I've ever experienced. The only caveat is that Joi's location in the North End is inconvenient to get to by public transportation, and it's more expensive ($55) than places like Newbury Day Spa ($44), which offers competitive quality. But if pain is your most important factor, go see Jill at Newbury Day Spa.

Pros: Painless Brazilian, Jill is very nice.

Cons: Inconvenient to get to Joi Salon and no parking, pricier than most

I tried this salon about a month ago after moving to the north end. I was delighted to find out that they are open on Sundays which is very convenient for me. I got several waxing services from Jill, who i HIGHLY recommend. She is so nice and puts you at instant ease, I will definitley be going back. My eyebrows have never looked better! I have also since gotten a manicure from Melissa, who I also highly recommend. She is very professional and friendly, I was impressed with her work. I thought that the prices were very reasonable and the services far beyone my expectations. I am now planning on getting my hair done there and am told the massages are to die for. Everyone in the salon seemed very friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed and not stuffy which is one thing i've experienced before and can ruin your entire experience. I have been raving to my friends who finally told me to shut up and write a review already!

I made my first visit to Joi this week for a massage and had a wonderful experience. I was running late but the staff was very accomodating and didn't force me to cut my appointment short. The location was a little hard to find, but mostly because Google Maps showed me the wrong location for their address. Everything was great; the room, the atmosphere, and the service. I definitely recommend Joi!

Pros: Atmosphere, Friendly Staff

I have never walked out of a salon totally happy and satisfied with my hair. I can say today 12/10/06 is the first time I've been happy and satisfied with my hair. As I left my friend called me and asked me what I was doing. I told her I got a hair cut and I love it. Unfortunately, she just got her hair done (some where else NOT at Joi) and her experience was not as positive. I told her the next time she needs a cut she should give Joi Salon a try. I did and there are no regrets here! Besides the hair cut the staff was also "friendly" and "attentive". For example, my stylist Sarah she was funny and nice and gave me great advice on my hair and the receptionist I forget her name but she looks like Liv Tyler she was super nice as well. I thanked them for bring back the positive salon experience.

Cons: No cons yet first visit. Only con I can think of is it's kind of hidden.

I have been going to Rhonda at Joi for a year and love her cuts and color recommendations. Every stylist I had ever been to tried to straighten my wavey hair and go against it's curl. Rhonda gave me a cut that let the curl out and in a very low key way recommended products that worked, I have been getting rave compliments ever since. Even my mother made a comment about not realizing how beautiful and curly my natural hair was. Very highly recommended.

I have been going to Joi Salon for around 4 months now, and have always been very pleased.
The blond color I just received is fantastic, and the cut is perfect. The stylists at Joi listens, and pays well attention to what you want, as well as what looks the best. Jopino is my stylist, and I can recommend him to anyone. I also receive wax treatments from Liz, and my eyebrows have never looked better. Even though this is a trendy salon and spa, all staff are friendly and makes you feel very comfortable.

Finally, after trying a lot of Newbury St. salons and walking out with a helmet head, I decided to try this salon close to my home. It was a great experience beginning to end. Jensy was my stylist - and he was great. Instead of ignoring my comments and giving the same overstyled, early 90's Jennifer Aniston 'do every other stylist in Boston likes to dish out - he gave me a sexy new cut that works with my hair texture and I can easily style myself. Also, instead of hard-selling me on products, like a lot of stylists in the Boston area, he simply explained what he was using and how it compared to some of the products I already owned. I decided to buy one of the items, but there was absolutely no pressure. The cut and style was $50. Great value. I'm definitely going back.

I went to Joi Salon to get a facial and leg and brow wax. My appointment was with Liz, who turned out to be marvelous. Along with the rest of the staff Liz was professional and friendly. She worked quickly and took extra care to make sure I was comfortable and relaxed. The facilities were very clean and the procedures were seamless. I left with my face feeling rejuvenated and my eyebrows looked immaculate. I have already made plans to come back and highly recommend this place to my friends.

I was worried when I moved to Boston that I would never be able to replace my stylist at the Aveda salon I went to in Michigan. I chose Joi because it's a block away from my apartment, and after a year of stalling, I realized I was going to HAVE to take the plunge and get my hair cut.

I loved it! The place was great; people were super nice and my hair cut was actually better than I could have ever expected. Jenny Miller (the girl that I saw) did exactly what I asked for, gave me great recommendations, and made the experience totally comfortable. I can't wait to go back to get it colored and cut again (and try one of their spa services).

I first went to Joi Salon on reccomendation from a friend after being compelety overcharged and over blahed on Newbury Street. Stepping into the Salon is aways like going to a freinds house the staff remembers your name and details about your life. Teh hair cuts are wonderful and the colour is always fantastic. I've never in the two years since had a single problem with either...and the stylists won't let you leave if they don't like it either.....The Spa which is seperate from the slaon is like entering a retreat where all your problems melt away at the door. The services are excellent from the mind numbing massages to the customized facials...

At a friend's recommendation, I tried this new salon. The staff is very nice and down to earth and I was very pleased with my cut and color. 8 weeks later - I still am. I also know others who have gone and were equally pleased.
