I was referred by a friend here. Melissa was excellant! She listened to what I had to say, was very attentive, and aware of what I was looking for on my hair. My concern is that I have thick hair and frizzy in the heat. She gave me some suggestions, and she mentioned that my new hair would change my life. It SURE DID!!
This place is excellant, the people are very professional. This is not like other salons were they gossip about people and their own clients. I will travel to go to this place, all the time. Thanks, Nancy.

Referred to M Squared by a friend. For my first time I was a little concerned but the experience was great. Melissa was awesome! I showed her a couple of pictures of what I was looking for as far as a cut and what my normal hair color was. I was opened to hear what she had to say. She suggested a couple of highlights to accent the front and it worked out great.

I went for the first time to Devon yesterday for color and can't be happier! I originally went all the way to Newbury Street hoping to find perfect hair color, ended up way too dark, and not at all what I had asked for. I explained my woes to the woman on the phone at M squared, she was extremely helpful and directed me to Devon. Devon was detailed oriented and made me feel comfortable by telling me her plan before she mixed the color. I felt like for the first time she knew exactly what I wanted without a lot of explaination. And unbelievably the final product matched what her plan was! Imagine that! So I most definitely will be returning to M squared!

Pros: Great hair, easy to get to

Cons: wished they had a bigger selection of hair products

I just moved here from LA and was a little anxious about finding a great hairdresser - whomever he/she was, would have to measure up to a great hairdresser from LA. Well, I found all of that in Melissa. Wonderfully talented, well informed- she understood my hair, my challenges and how best to bring out the qualities of my hair, using my facial shape and hair texture to its best advantage. I'm thrilled to have found a fantastic salon so close to my new apt. Thank you Melissa and M Squared!

Driving to the salon I was worried as to what Devin my new stylist would say when she saw my too light dull blond hair , I had been coloring myself.
I entered the salon and took a seat. A moment later she intorduced herself smiled and shook my hand. I felt as ease immediatly . She carefully evaluated my hair as I shared my bad hair dreams, pixie cut, red head... yikes! She calmed my nerves and worked her magic. I felt beautiful again, my hair felt like silk, looked healthy and shiny again. Devin you are the best!

Hello,
I was given a gift certificate to M 2 for Christmas.
I am new to the state of RI and used to have my hair cut for many years by the same stylist. He used clippers and was not afraid to cut my hair as short as I liked it (buzzed). Who should I make an appointment with that would be able/willing to cut my hair this way?
Thank you, Joy

Moved here a couple months ago from Little Rock and came to this salon on a friend's recommendation. She recommended Melissa, but I scheduled with Devan, which I am very pleased about. She gave me a great cut and a new color. She was very friendly and made sure I was comfortable with the style. Devan also went out of her way to recommend restaurants in the area that she liked, which I greatly appreciated. ( being new to the area and all) I will definitely be back!

I had my hair highlighted blonde by Shauna. It came out very well and looks natural. I enjoyed the setting and the people were very friendly.

A few friends had been to the salon and loved it. After my appointment with Lori I knew why. She spent so much time giving me great hints, and showing me how best to style my hair (which is very fine). I've never had a stylist take the time to do this! I'm very happy!

I've been seeing Stephanie for haircuts and styling for about 4 years. She is amazing with hair - so talented - and easy to talk to. She knows what is trendy and gives great hair advice. I always leave absolutely loving my hair! Everyone in the salon is professional and friendly. Michael, the owner, is awesome and also very talented. I highly recommend this place for hair and beauty needs! They also do nails and makeup.

Lori did a great cut on me and diagnosed my intensely dry hair so well that she found the perfect products to bring my curls back to life (use the moroccan oil, ladies!!). She knows what she's doing, that's for sure...

Michael is a genius, although you may go in the salon with the a specific idea of how you would like your hair, Michael will adapt it to your lifestyle and the shape of your face.
I have never been able to keep a cut in shape while growing it out before M Squared.

Stephanie @ MSquared has been cutting + coloring my hair since I moved to RI part-time in 2003. She's professional, patient and very tuned-in to what's new in her industry. The salon is small, but hip and in a great neighborhood. You can shop or have lunch before or after your appointment and there's a parking lot right next door! Prices are good too!

Closest you will get to Hollywood Hair on the East Coast. I see Stephanie, she is great at everything; color, cut and multi-tonal highlights. Everyone at M Squared is so friendly and professional.

I followed Melissa from Urban Detour and she is amazing. I have a pretty complicated color that is multi colors and dry hair that she transforms for me. I am constantly asked where I get my hair done and I always love recommending her and the salon. I am also super picky and have gone to many stylist that have had there own ideas of how my hair should look. Melissa always listens and always does an outstanding job.

I recently moved to providence and was in search of a salon and came upon M2. I always get nervous upon trying new salons, b/c most places don't know how to cut curly hair. Well.... Go to Stephanie! She is great, and my cut was awesome.... Have been back 3 times already and will continue!

I was referred by a friend to Melissa at M Squared and am so glad that I took her advice. The pricing is reasonable and the atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. Melissa is meticulous, attentive and very detailed. The location is great, as well, as it is central to all of the great shops and restaurants on Federal Hill.

I've been going to Devan for a few years now and followed her from another salon. I love the new salon. It's a great location on Atwells and the atmosphere is totally relaxed. Devan does a great job and is always great to be around. I'd give her six stars if I could.

Devan has been styling my hair for 2 years now. I just love what she does with my hair. All I need to say is ??make me pretty? and she takes it from there!
Always up-beat, has an amazing sense of fashion, trends and at the same time, finds what best fits for my face, personality, and hair texture.
I get so many compliments on my hairstyle; right after a haircut and even when it is completely ready for a trim. What else a girl can ask for? It is just excellent!

I have gone to many salons around Providence and never go back but this salon is the best salon and I will be returning. I am very particular about my hair, I went from having long hair to short a year ago and now I want my long hair back so I only wanted my hair to be trimmed. Steven Lester was my stylist and he listened to everything I wanted. I haghly recommend him for anyone with short hair!

I love Lori A!! I followed her from another salon and think she's just the best! Her cuts are fantastic - they look great the day of and grow out beautifully!!!

I have a recent shoulder injury that has sigificiantly limited my range of motion and made my shoulders very sensitive to the touch. Lori has been extremely accomodating and has gone out of her way to ensure a comfortable experience for me.

I've been going to M Squared Salon since it opened in the Fall of 2008. it's the place where "everybody knows your name." The staff there is friendly and warm. Stephanie Shay has been my stylist for YEARS and I followed her to M Squared because, of all the stylists I've had through the years, she is the best. Once featured in Allure magazine as a top talent, this girl knows how to make my thick wavy hair look good. Arianna is a makeup master, and Michael is a color genius! I seriously recommend M Squared to anyone looking for a quality Salon. And, after you're looking hott why not stop meet a friend at one of the restaurants on the Hill?

I've been going to Steph for ~5 years and have recommended her to numerous people who also love her. She knows how to cut/style curly hair, has an upbeat personality - and gives THE best blow-dry. I've never before had a stylist tame my curls without using a flat iron - but she does it all on her own :)

Fantastic Stylist! She really knows her way around the shears! I thank her every morning - my hair practically does itself! I actually have had people follow me around the store to ask me who does my hair, Lori at M Squared! I have referred friends to her and they are just as happy!

Thanks again!

I go to Lori A. and my hair always looks great. I like to mix it up, sometimes streaky, sometimes a style change. I can wait longer between cuts because it still looks good for 5??6??7 weeks. The products they use are the best. I buy my shampoo there. I'll never go anywhere else.

For years I'd been getting my hair cut and highlighted in Boston for way too much money. After my friend recommended M2, I gave it a try. Since then, I've never gone back to Newbury St., Boston. I get a better hair cut, better color, all for nearly a third of the price.

I live in Boston and travel to Providence to have my cut and color done by owner Michael. Michael maintains a professional and upbeat salon. He gives you a haircut that not only looks great when you leave the salon, but also when you do your hair at home. You can count on compliments from his haircuts! He does great color too!

Fun neighborhood to browse around in after your appointment.

I just got back from another great appointment with Lori A. I have been seeing her for several years and followed her from another salon...she's just that good. Extremely professional, doesn't get too pushy with products, and, most importantly, has learned what I like and what I don't. I trust her completely to give me a great cut that suits both my appearance and my personality. I have a friend moving to the area soon and I will definitely be sending her to see Lori at M squared.

Never thought I was a fussy guy when it came to hair, but after leaving Boston a couple of years ago it seemed every place I went gave me bad haircut after bad haircut. I'd run into old timer barbers for a standard "high & tight" (which meant "short & lopsided") or I'd try a different stylists at my town's "best" salon. I'd get fair shampoo/head massages, but each girl had a way of makingmade my hair look "almost" good - the style would be decent, except for the one chunk of my head which looked like they trimmed with a shovel.

I'd committed myself to a life wearing hats when I noticed my wife's hair had taken on a stunning style. On a recommendation from a friend she'd started going to Devan, so I did and then we followed her to M2. Couldn't be happier - I only break out the hats on days I don't feel like showering.

What puts Devan above the rest, apart from her scissor talents, is personality - she's one of the only stylists I've actually enjoyed talking to (including the one I'd dated years ago...) She's got a laid-back, honest manner and her memory is astounding. She remembers conversational details from my first visit - her attention to personal details just makes one more comfortable that she's going to be just as attentive w/ your hair. I need to stop arriving at M2 w/ just washed hair because a pre-cut shampoo/conditioning by Devan is about one of the nicest things you can experience on a regular basis. Enchanted fingers - they'll put you to sleep in the sink.

There's lots of 2-Hr parking areas on Atwells, but it is a busy street so you might find yourself driving around trying to grab a spot. But you'll find plenty of small lots on the streets guarded by "good fellas" on lawn chairs - they'll make sure "nobody puts a scratch on ya cah" for a very reasonable rate while you're in the salon.

After seeing Devan - stop into Venda Ravioli a couple of doors down. Best Italian groceria/deli next to J. Pace's in Boston.

Enchanted fingers - they'll put you to sleep in the sink.

There's lots of 2-Hr parking areas on Atwells, but it is a busy street so you might find yourself driving around trying to grab a spot. But you'll find plenty of small lots on the streets guarded by "good fellas" on lawn chairs - they'll make sure "nobody puts a scratch on ya cah" for a very reasonable rate while you're in the salon.

After seeing Devan - stop into Venda Ravioli a couple of doors down. Best Italian groceria/deli next to J. Pace's in Boston.

Pros: Great atmosphere, Borderline-illegal shampoo & conditioning

Cons: Placement of mirrors on pillars might have you waving to people who can't see you...

I have been to many salons in the past looking for the "right" stylist for my needs. I had my first appointment with Devan and she was wonderful. She was very personable, understood my needs, very professional and I can't wait to go back to her. My hair looks great after she worked on it, I highly recommend her, this coming from a very picky person about her hair.

My hair has never looked better since I found Steven Lester at M2 Salon. Stephen is an expert at short hair and mine is not only short but fine and thin. Steven found a way to make my hair look and feel fantastic. I have never had strangers compliment me before but I do now. Not only does Stephen cut my hair but he does a great job of coloring and highlighting it too. Let me tell you this is not easy since it is very short! Not only is he talented but a nice guy too. You will not only look great but you will enjoy the experience as well. I usually stop at Pastiche Bakery, one block over, and have the ultimat experience of a cut and color with a great hot chocolate!

My hair is super thick, curly and gets 'big' really fast. Stephanie Shey, a fellow 'curly' herself, is an outstanding stylist that not only gets the challenges of curly hair, but truly celebrates it. Thanks to her skill, and always entertaining conversation, I not only look forward to my appointments, but have freed my locks once and for all from the ponytail cycle.

Lori did my highlights and cut about 6 wks ago and I'm still ecstatically happy about them. Lori understood my style immediately and gave me a range of recommendations to help me figure out how I wanted to cut my hair (ie short or not). She was very patient and made sure we were both on the same page before proceeding with the cut and color. The cost for this modern, peaceful salon with incredibly knowledgeable and up-to-date stylists is very reasonable. I have absolutely no desire to try any other salons, which is a first for me!

I happened upon Stephanie when I was a student at PC about 7 years ago. I have since moved to Boston, but still come back to her for cuts, color, and b drys. Her b drys are the best, only rivaled to Mario at the Oribe Salon, in Miami, who I go to when I am down there. In all of the years (I go every 4-6 weeks) that I have been going there I don?t think I have ever left the salon unhappy. Everyone there is very professional and always accommodating if I have to call and move my appointment.
Sorry for the abbreviations this site won?t let you use certain words!

I really needed a hair dresser in my life, So I tracked down Michael, who left another salon to open up his own. M squared is a warm, inviting, and relaxing salon to visit. The owner, Michael always has a smile on & greets you with friendly "hello" right when you walk in the door.
There are always complimentary beverages and reasonably priced products. I had my hair cut and foiled there and I am very happy with the results.Thanks Michael! I felt soooo comfortable and my hair came out wonderful and trust me,my hair is not the easiest to maintain.
I recommend M Squared to everyone. I have recieved so many compliments. I almost didn't want to share this information with anyone, out of fear that he'll get too busy and won't be able to fit me in! Regardless, do yourself a favor and have Michael cut your hair. He's a genius with style and will completely understand your hair and how best it can look. The place is absolutely beautiful!I So do yourself and your hair a favor and call Arionna, at M Squared to schedule your appointment.

I've been going to Stephanie at MSquared for at least five years - since I read about her in Allure magazine. I always got my cuts in Manhattan and am very particular about my hair. After moving to Connecticut, I still made the trip into NY for a cut. Then I read the article about Stephanie and decided to take a chance. She is amazing. She seems to be an expert in all types of hair - from my thin, straight to my sisters curly. I am stopped in the street by people asking who cuts my hair (not something that happened often with haircuts costing hundreds of dollars more). The quality of the cut, the value for each dollar I spend, and Stephanies fabulous personality make my monthly two hour trip worth it. I would follow her anywhere.

Hairyencounter, your experience seems to be so far from others experience at MSquared; do you think you are mistaken about the salon you were in??????????????????
