I have finally found someone who can do corrective coloring. Nicole Cullinan, owner of the Boston Color Group, was able to correct the four colors of hair on my head and give me the light ash blonde I wanted. She had to correct the band

Nicole gives the BEST haircuts!!! I don't think someone who charges $200 per cut could top her.

Nicole is an amazing colorist. I have been to so many colorists, both in Boston and even in Italy, in the past year, that I've lost count. I finally came in to see Nicole for a color correction after being turned into an ugly brassy light

After years of coloring my hair black to correct other "upscale" salon's mistakes, I had come to the end of my rope..I had searched high and low for someone who could correct this awful, black, goth mop on the top of my head and give me back the hair that I had once had. After much investigation, I came upon Nicole at BCG...and lets just say that she is the ultimate MIRACLE WORKER!!! After a consultation and discussing my goals for fixing my problem hair, we agreed on a plan of attack. Nicole was outgoing, knowledgeable, comforting, attentive and empathetic to my problem. She took the bull by the horns and did what noone else could do, she removed years and years of horrible black dye from my hair...she corrected the color to a chestnut brown with tons of highlights...she took the time to explain every step she was taking, involving me in the process. She never talked down to me or had a superiority complex like some other stylists...she is down to earth and makes you feel like you've known her all your life. She made me feel like a million dollars and the difference is incredible...she listens to your wishes and concerns and gives a realistic and truthful opinion of what can and can't be done...She is truly a magician and definitely pulled a rabbit out of her hat when dealing with me!! My hair is gorgeous and by the time I made it home to the south shore after a few stops, I had no less than six people compliment my hair. Don't hesitate go and see Nicole, she is truly a Master of her Craft and I am forever greatful for her help!!

I walked in to BCG with hair the color and texture of, no word of a lie, Bozo the Clown, and a HORRID 80's hair metal cut. I couldn't take another "attempt" by my nice-but-inept former stylist. BCG took pity on me, restored my hair to a very pretty auburn, HELPED HEAL HEAT DAMAGE, knew how to cut curly hair (!!!), and gave me fantastic advice besides. AND she's friendly, AND she hasn't got a pretentious bone in her body. Nicole rocks. This is my seventh year of having my hair done at salons, and I've never met another stylist even close to her ability. The icing on the cake? She listens to her clients!

Been a client of Nicole's for almost 12 years. She has seen me through long and short styles, and has travelled with me through my red, blonde, brunette and highlited adventures. Through it all, she has made me always look great! She's the best..you can't go wrong!

I was in desperate need after a salon bleached my highlights white. Nicole helped fix the dye job and saved my hair. Now my hair hasn't been healthier and she can always cut my hair in the style I was looking for. She is a wonderful stylist and treats all her customers like friends.

Thank you,

Pros: Best color correction

Cons: None

I have been seeing Nicole for years for highlights and to cut my hair. When I first started seeing her, my hair was fried from years of highlighting that did not really look natural. Now, my hair is much healthier and people are always surprised to hear that I color it because Nicole does such a good choosing the shades and blending them in that it just looks like my natural hair. Listen to Nicole when she tells you what color and hairstyles will suit your face shape and coloring - she is always right!

Pros: great color and cuts, reasonable prices

Cons: none :-)

I've been seeing Nicole for about two years. My schedule is very erratic and I'm away for months at a time. BUT, I try hard to arrange things so that I somehow get by without somebody else coloring my hair. Nobody does it better.
She does a great natural- looking job, which is what I want and have had trouble getting from others. Why do so many hairdressers want to color your hair so that it screams "I go to a hairdresser!!! This is not my real color!!!"
The other great thing is that Nicole also cuts so well. I've had a hard time finding somebody who can cut AND color equally well.
I'm very happy with BCG and Nicole. My only regret is that now she'll get busier and busier! She certainly deserves the award and all success - I'm just being selfish.

Pros: Color and Cut

Cons: Nope

I went in with a color that I hated and was depressed and crying all the time, as well as going to England three days later, Nicole took the time to make me feel that it was ok and she could fix it, which she did and I love my hair, I get compliments all the time saying it makes me look 10 years younger. Nicole is one of the best professionals I have ever met and trust me, I am very picky with my hair...I will NEVER go anywhere else. Her prices are reasonable and the salon is clean and very friendly......she is a gem.

I have been going to Nicole for years and would never think of going anywhere else. My hair is not easy to style (thick, somewhat frizzy and wavy) and for years I went from stylist to stylist trying to find someone who could give me good, consistent cuts. Nicole has never given me a bad haircut and is always honest about what would work for my hair type and what wouldn't. I don't color it (yet), but when I do I know I'll be in great hands! I've been asked many times "who does your hair?" and I always say "Nicole @ Boston Color Group - she's the best!"

I met Nicole two years ago as a natural brunette turned bleached blond. I had gone to two other salons advertised as "corrective color" salons asking for lowlights. Each time I left the salon, my hair was blonder and more damaged than before. After contacting Nicole, she listened, suggested a treatment for the damaged hair and my hair is now my natural color with subtle highlights. Her prices and very reasonable and everyone at the salon are very friendly. Thank you, Nicole!

I recommend Nicole Cullinane to everyone! She is professional, accomodating, flexible, dependable and efficient. Since I became a client of Nicole's 5 years ago, I have been receiving compliments on my hair everywhere I go. People stop me on the street, in stores, in restaurants, and simply out of the blue to ask who cuts my hair! I even have other stylists complimenting that my cut is fabulous and lets my hair naturally fit my face and my style. For years I have looked for a stylist who is comfortable cutting curly hair, and confident in her abilities. Nicole certainly rises to the occasion...not to mention what an amazing person she is!

Nicole is a phenomenal hairdresser! She recently cut my hair short -- and I have gotten so many rave reviews. Her coloring ability is superior. She really listens to your needs, and then tells you what she thinks -- honestly and straightforwardly. She has a delightful personality, and is so down to earth.

Forget wasting your money on Newbury Street. Nicole and the girls at Boston Color Group are the best I have found in or out of the city. First, there is no pretentious attitudes here, just genuine care and a desire to get you exactly what you want without damaging your hair. The cost is beyond reasonable, and Nicole is always willing to adjust schedules or fit you in at the last minute.
I cant speak highly enough of the entire staff at Boston Color Group and it only gets better with the addition of a masseuse on premises. Do yourself and your hair one better and visit BCG for your next cut and color. You will not be disappointed.

Coming from California, I thought finding a good stylist would be a painful trial and error process. It turns out I was wrong. After reading the reviews on Citysearch, I decided to give Nicole a call. The best decision I`ve made . My hair looks great. I get tons of compliments. I am particularly pleased with my color. I am very picky on the shade of blonde I want and Nicole got it right the first time around. I was very impressed. Nicole is never overbooked and really listens to your needs. She is also detail oriented and devotes more time and effort on blowdrying my hair than most stylists I`ve been to. She also has a great personality, fun and down to earth. Going to the salon is always a great experience. Now the whole family is part of Nicole`s fan club and we are all very happy customers.

Nicole is the best colorist and hair stylist I have ever been to. She really took the time to understand what I wanted to achieve with my hair. Each time I see her for a touch up she makes sure I was happy with the last haircut/color and if I would like to change anything she listens and offers her expert advice to help clarify what I want so I get a great outcome EVERY time. She is very accommodating with her schedule and I love her hours! She is very pleasant and fun to talk to while having the service done- the time just flies by as she always has interesting and funny conversation. I have and will continue to highly recommend her to others. I feel her location is fantastic and prices are extremely reasonable as you are getting a New York City quality hair cut at a Watertown price- you can't beat that!

I went to Nicole for a cut and color and she was the best stylist/colorist I have ever been to.
The color was amazing and the cut is fabulous. All of my co-workers and friends told me they have never seen my hair look better and they are going to her now too.

The salon is clean and the hours are very convenient. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Don't let this place color your hair. I have light brown hair, went into this salon to have my roots done. When done noticed it was very dark but since I had not had my hair dried I just thought it was dark because it was wet. When it dried it was almost black. When I called to complain I was told by the stylist she thought she would just change the color as she thought it might look better I did return to the salon to have it corrected but left with my hair completely streaked with dark brown and light brown strips all over my head. I had to have it redone in another salon.

Nicole is absolutely the best at what she does. I relocated to Cambridge from New York and was quite anxious about finding someone who would be able to color my hair the way I liked it, which is a bright shade of red with different high- and low lights. Definitely unusual and not an easy job, and I knew it. I found Nicole by driving by her salon and then checking out the reviews on Citysearch and decided to talk to her about my hair. She gave me a long (free) consultation and she also agreed to talk to my former hairstylist to get a feel for what had been done in the past, etc. I was totally impressed. I've been a client for over a year now, and I get compliments on my hair color all the time, both from friends and strangers. Nicole also does a fabulous job of cutting my hair, which is long with layers throughout. Finally, her prices are completely reasonable for a good stylist. Period. On top of everything else, the salon is totally gorgeous, so you get to enjoy that as well. Nicole is also super-friendly, and I always look forward to my appointments, which can be scheduled early in the morning, relatively late in the evening, and any time in-between! I highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking for either getting their hair colored or cut or both!

I went to BCG about 6 months ago. I was first quoted once price for foils on the phone, then charged a higher price when it was completed. The number of foils remained the same. I also preferred to go to one of the other hair dressers instead of Nicole. However, since I was a walk in, Nicole still insisted I was her client and I was charged her higher prices instead of the other hair dresser's. It was not a good experience at all. I will never go back.

Just left The Boston Color Group and my hair has never looked this great! Nicole exceeded my expectations - she did a fantastic job. Before I went in the top of my head was brighter than the bottom and my layers didn?t flow well. I wanted that natural sunburst California blonde. Nicole sat with me while we discussed my options and she really led me in the right direction. This is the natural blonde color I have always wanted and the cut is so stylish. There was no pressure to buy her products even though i walked out with new stuff. I will be honest; I am one of the pickiest people when it comes to my hair and have tried multiple salons. Now I have finally found the best colorist in Boston! Thank you Nicole!!!

Very happy with my haircut and deep condition. Nicole cared about the condition of my hair and it's health more than any other stylist I've visited. She gave me great tips on styling and helped me understand how split ends are caused and they can be prevented. She did a wonderful job, I love my hair and I recommend her to all my friends and family.

I've been following Nicole for about six years now, and can't see why I would ever let anyone else cut or color my hair. She has it down to a science, especially if you've had trouble with color in the past. She really knows how to use color products to produce exactly what you want. You won't walk out with what SHE wanted for your hair, you'll get what YOU wanted, although she does provide assistance and help for you to decide what will look best on you. She is also a precise yet artful cutter of hair...you'll look like you got the best cut on Newbury Street. An added bonus: she's terrific with children, making them feel right at home and comfortable so that they'll actually sit still. She's made my four-year-old look adorable! Nicole is friendly, professional, and very talented. Go see her; you won't be sorry.

I have been going to Nicole for eight years (for color and haircuts) and every time I leave the salon I am so happy with my hair! Nicole is an amazing colorist and an awesome stylist (like no one else I have ever been to, in or around Boston). She is always helpful with suggestions if you are looking to make a change in your style or color. Boston Color Group is open very extended hours (early and late), which works out great for people who have busy schedules. Nicole is always on time and has a very pleasant, friendly and upbeat manner. You will love your trip to Boston Color Group -- it's a five star experience. :-)

I just came from Nicole for the fourth time. The boston color group is a relaxed fun enviroment to be in. Nicole is very nice and she can give you just the style you want. When I first wanted highlights I told her what I wanted and she listened carefully and I got the style I wanted perfectly the first time. I e-mail her all the time for advice about what and what not to do with my hair and she always gives me an exelent thorough reply answering all of my questions. If your frustrated with your hair and want a different look, Nicole is the perfect person to go to. The prices are great and you'll have a really fun time. If you chose to ignore this, then you're missing out completely!!! Go to Nicole to get the exact style you always wanted, and she will give it to you :-)

After trying many different high-end places downtown for blonde highlights, I just went to Nicole for the first time. She is extremely nice and was very careful with my hair. She really listened to what I wanted, then blended my highlights/lowlights perfectly. The atmosphere is totally relaxed...no pretentions at all. And there was no pressure to do anything that I did not want. I 've finally found a home for my hair!

Cons: if you're looking for a sleek uppity place, this place might not be for you, but you'd be silly to miss out

I had Nicole cut my hair once when my other hairdresser was away. Nicole did such a fantastic job that I'm switching to her full time. In fact, when I went back to my previous hairdresser after Nicole cut/colored my hair, my previous hairdresser was astonished. Couldn't believe what a nice job "someone else" had done. Nice compliment from a Newbury Street salon owner. Her salon is easy to get to, lots of parking - much better than making the trek downtown. I'm delighted to have found her.

I first started going to see Nicole when I was fourteen years old, she has done everything to my hair from straightening, coloring, even to doing my hair for prom. Everytime I go to see her I know I'm getting the best. The updo she did for me for prom was AMAZING to say the least, and stayed together the entire night. I can trust her judgement as a stylist and a friend when I need an opinion on something new I am thinking of trying. She knows just about everything there is to know about hair so I never hesitate to ask her questions, whether I'm in seeing her or not i know I can call anytime I need to. Infact, when i tried dying my hair myself once and it was a disaster, I called her and she told me exactly what I needed to do to keep my the color from sinking in.
I have every intention of continuing to see her even when I come home on vacation from college. If you want someone who knows it all, then she is the BEST.

I actually found Nicole through citysearch and read all of the great reviews her clients gave her, so I thought I would call her for an appointment to fix my hair. Spoke to her on the phone and got an appointment right away, she was very pleasant. I have to say, she fixed my hair beautifully, and also fixed the bad haircut I received from another salon. I was there for three hours, and was offered refreshments, and magazines, which I did not read because everyone in the salon was talking to each other non-stop. I was my first time there, and I will definately be back, I have found a new stylist, and I am very happy.

First met Nicole when my colorist at Leon's moved back to Italy -- and have followed her ever since. She's a superb colorist, bar none! I'd say she rivals any colorist on Newbury St....plus parking is a breeze.

I first starting going to Nicole in Belmont at Leon & Co., and have since followed her around to various salons in the Boston area. My first cut with her was 6 years ago when I decided to cut my very curly hair very short! She did an amazing job and I continued to keep that short curly style for a couple years. Now I have long hair again and I continue to see Nicole. Unlike so many stylists and colorists, Nicole LISTENS to what you want and makes it happen. At the same time, she always has great ideas if you just want something fun and different. I have gone through short curly hair, short chemically treated straight hair, and now long curly har that I blow-dry straight! Through all of those styles, Nicole has always been able to make my hair look amazing. Now I am trusting her for the most important day of my life...she is doing my hair for my wedding in June!

Nicole is a very skilled colorist and stylist. She gives great individualized service- I have never been unhappy with a cut from her and my color always looks natural (have not been able to say that for other hairdressers that have been recommended to me in the area.) She is also friendly and accomodating to busy schedules and prices are reasonable. I know that I'm getting the latest products, styles, and techniques when I visit. I have been seeing Nicole for around 5 years now and have absolutely no plans to leave!

Pros: Professionalism and skill of Nicole, owner BCG

Cons: Distance from my house, I live an hour away! :( Maybe I'll move

Nicole is a wonderful colorist and stylist. I know from 10 years of appointments. I met Nicole back when I had bleached blonde dried out frizzy hair... it needed help. I had moved back to the Boston area from Florida. I spent that year looking for a good stylist; I had gone to 3-4 stylists with no luck (continued to get bleach blonde frizzed hair and bad haircuts). I made an appointment with Nicole, who was different; she talked to me about her passion for color, her training and her desire to know how the colors and chemicals work together taking into account a person?s hair color and texture. She then asked me and listened to me describe what I would like for my hair (I was thinking - I hope she's good - she sounds good). She evaluated my ideas, my hair color and texture and explained honestly what she thought she could do for me. From there she went to work to transform my dry locks and continues to care for my healthy hair today. She provides me with consistently good results. She continues her education and stays current on trends and uses the best products. Nicole is genuinely caring and confident in her abilities. She is honest and discreet. After a recent visit, I was stopped and complimented by a complete stranger on how beautiful my hair looked, I was so flattered. I give credit and thanks to Nicole!

Pros: Excellent Service and Products, Good Hours for Appointments, Location easy to access in Watertown Square - minutes from the Mass. Pike.

I 'inherited' Nicole because of a maternity leave for my previous stylist. I never looked back. She is really sharp, personable, a good listener, but also willing to encourage new ideas without piles of pressure. I've followed her to two salons, each farther from my home. She's been in Watertown for a few years, is staying put and I think making lots of her clients really happy. She can deal with many hair types, has a can-do attitude with a good outcome, and is a solid professoinal.

I am very picky when it comes to my hair. I have always left the salon happy and looking great. Nicole takes time working on finding just the right color/cut for you. She has lots of patience and is always up to date on the latest looks. The Early morning and evening appointments are great for hectic schedules too!
