Owned by Ben and Rich, this salon is not only where I go to get my hair cut, but also who I chose to do the hair and makeup for my wedding. They are always here to help guide you through what you're looking for and what will work for you.

Well if that is true about Kathryn then she is a natural at doing hair. Thanks for the offer but I would not like to see Ben or anyone else. I had to remove my previous review because I can no longer support this business.

Pros: fun staff, open sundays

I work in the area, but had no idea the salon existed until I overheard someone talk about it. In need of a hair-do shape-up, I strolled down Portland to check out Frances Ray Jules. It looked nice as I peeked through the window, so I stepped in and asked if a someone was available to re-shape my very thick hair. I was helped immediately and matched up with Ellen...who was great. Ellen took her time to "get to know" my hair before we went over to the sink. We spent a few minutes reviewing my likes and dislikes regarding the style, and Ellen walked me through her recommendation and technique so I felt very comfortable once she had the scissors in her hand.
I walked out a very satisfied customer...and received very flattering comments the following days. I'm heading back to Ellen to see what she can do with color.

I got a great haircut today, finally...I've been looking for someone who can cut pretty long layers in my hair and have had one bad haircut after another...not so much bad as just not great. I found out that this salon is open on Sundays

I have been going to Ben at Frances Ray Jules salon for years and could not be happier. After years of bouncing from one salon to another on Newbury Street, I was so pleased to find this gem in the North End. The atmosphere is very pleasant, spacious and extremely friendly. They seem to add services daily and have become quite diverse in over the years. Ben is always looking to improve the salon and often has wonderful specials. In addition, he is extremely good at listening to your wishes regarding a haircut and a genius in terms of color. Overall, I would absolutely recommend the salon and have been completely thrilled with my experiences there.

I've been getting my hair cut and highlighted by Kathryn at Frances Ray Jules Salon for a year now. Kathryn does an excellent job. She always remembers exactly what I like and don't like, she finds creative solutions to handle different scenarios and overall does a great job. I highly recommend Kathryn and the Salon.
