I have thick bushy hair and I have never been able to get a stylish cut. I decided to try Umi and I am so glad I did. They cut my hair in layers and somehow it lays down perfectly! They are very expensive but it was so worth it to me. I might see if I can go to a cheaper salon just for trims and go to Umi when I want a different style. It did take about three weeks for me to get an appointment.

PROS: awesome cuts, knowledgeable, friendly, nice modern salon
CONS: wait for appointment, very expensive

This salon is in a class by itself. I have never experienced such attention to detail and service. My visit to Jeffrey was true Quality Time for my hair (and my spirits). I've never been happier.

I saw Jeffrey Dauksevich at his salon Umi for highlights and a new haircut. Wow- I never expected the experience to be so worthwhile- he interpreted me in a completely different and interesting way than any of the other "best" stylists have, and I really appreciated his genuine interest and quiet focus- he made it all seem effortless.

I went to Umi Salon to get my highlights done. My stylist (the owner) spent a lot of time explaining color options for me that were not what I considered radically different from what I had, but once it was done, it was dramatically improved. It is absolutely beautiful. I hadn't intended on getting my hair cut, but decided to do that as well, and that turned out to be a beautiful transformation, too. The entire experience was very calm but exciting. The minimalist studio look of the salon combined with the intensity of the owner's reserved vibe and artistic mind is a powerful combination that produces what I am today- a very pleased customer.

I had a terrific experience at Umi. Everyone was stylishly smart, the hairstyling throughout the salon looked absolutely beautiful, and the salon itself is gorgeous. It's the most beautiful salon I've been to in Boston, and my hair is the best it's ever been.

My haircut is perfect. I can run my hands through it, give it a shake, and it looks great. I have always wanted a cut like that. I thought the salon atmosphere was effortless and comfortable, and the stylists were expert and interesting to talk with. Overall, I found Umi to be a more sophisticated salon.

Pros: Overall Service, Expert Artistry

I am really happy to have discovered Umi. My hairstylist consulted with me thoroughly before anything was started, and I felt really confident there. Everything turned out better than I anticipated (cut and color- beautiful and cool), and I loved the people there. Everything felt just right.

Pros: Nice Details, Good Service, Not A "Scene"

.

$352 - I booked a full highlight and when at the salon added a cut. Beth with consult with the owner did a great highlight and toned the between the foils hair. I actually gasped when the receptionist told me that will be $352 - I was charged for a full highlight, a full color and a cut. Apparently I have two heads - when I complained - I was told the charge could not be backed out of the computer (ridiculous) and that I would have to call the salon manager on Monday, which I did. She called me back today, Friday, and said I got what I paid for. WOW - customer retention apparently not an issue. Beth is great. Salon - not so much. I would highly recommend that you ask exactly what services you are receiving and how much they will cost.

I got the best haircut I've ever had here. I found a clean and cool loft with a very stylish, attitude-free staff. Umi is a comfortable, fashion forward atmosphere I find fresh and exciting.

Pros: Direct, Caring, Honest

.

I am totally disgusted with Umi. They rushed my foil and haircut. The stylist did not listen to what I wanted and left me looking like a freak. They didn't seem to care I was upset and told me I looked faboulus. Also the receptionist was rude and the entire staff seemed snobby. Just because you work on Newbury Street doesn't mean you're better than everyone. I WILL NEVER RETURN TO THIS HORRIBLE PLACE AND SUGGEST THAT NOBODY ELSE DOES EITHER.

I found Umi Salon on Citysearch, and went to John for a haircut. It was such a pleasure to be well taken care of. My haircut is absolutely beautiful. He was polite and spent the extra time to show me what to do on my own and what products I should be using. The salon overall is a departure from other salons- it feels very together and focused. I really liked that.

Never have I had a stylist work my haircut with the skill, grace, and confidence that Jeffrey Dauksevich displayed. He is of very few words, very calm, yet extremely magnetic. I didn't want it to be over- but when it was, my hair became the best it has ever been. A great designer.

Beyond disappointing-I ended upw/a horrible haircut that I now have to get fixed elsewhere.I told my hairdresser what I didn't like@my hair&what I had hoped to get,but all of that somehow got lost in translation&I ended upw/exactly the kind of haircut I've always dreaded(practically a mullet)w/bangs that I didn't ask for&horrible morning hair that I can't control.In retrospect,I should've asked for a senior hairdresser&been more firmw/her @what I wanted-it should've raised a REDflag when she had that glassy look in her eye&started playingw/my hair,experimentingw/hairstyles that SHE liked.I gave her the benefit of the doubt&decided to trust her judgment,but ended up extremely dissatisfied&resentful in the end.I not only feel *stuck*w/this horrible haircut,but it's not even good enough to last me for a single day.I've been putting my hairup in a ponytail to hide it.What was supposed to be a simple haircut has turned into what'll be several long months of damage-control!

I decided to try UMI after reading so many great reviews on Citysearch and seeing the consistent high ratings they have received. The receptionist booked my appt. with Liz, and she did an amazing job. She really took the time and care to give me a complete haircut. There was nothing I wanted to fix when I got home, and that's a first! She understood what I wanted, and was an absolute pleasure.
I will definitely go back to Liz. Worth every penny! Salon was very classy, but not stuffy.

For my hair washing, my whole face was wet, some of my make up smudged. My friends recommend I try this place out because it has rave reviews. I looked around the salon and noticed why. Most of the clients were telling the stylist what to do. The girl next to me was like a Hitler. She didn't have a pretty face and insisted that the stylist cut her hair so she'd look like Halle Berry. She left the salon looking like a boy. Way too pleasing! I want honest feed back if a style does not look good especially when I am paying an arm, a leg and a left breast for a hair cut!
$200 for bad hair washing, and no suggestions on what is good or bad for my facial features. And finally no friendly conversation because the girl just assumed I didn't speak english.

I was absolutely blown away by Jeffrey's artistry and expertise. He is by far the most talented stylist to work on my hair- there is no rating high enough to express how special he is- and how wonderful a person he is- quiet, thoughtful, and interesting. I was pleased, and very pleasantly surprised. High marks!

What I find so interesting about Umi is no matter what direction you look in, all the work looks so good, and there is an indescribable vibe- you just know you're in the right place. There are lots of nice, subtle touches, and a really helpful desk staff. I was with Liz, who gave me the most beautiful highlights I've ever had. She's cool and smart, and talented with long hair.

If I were going to cut my hair short, I would DEFINITELY go to the owner, who was cutting next to us. He did the most beautiful short cut I've ever seen when I was there. (he's a babe, too! ;)

I had an exceptional experience at Umi with John Porter. I have long hair, and always seem to get the same treatment at salons, but not here. John worked with my hair like a sculptor, and the result was beautiful, sexy, and exciting to see- he has a great eye, and I must recommend him, and the salon, highly.

Nice touches were the deep conditioning treatment, attention to detail, and courteous personel.

She is intelligent and thoughtful about hair styling and also very sweet. The staff there is very nice as well. The atmosphere could be perceived as a little intimidating, but it's really not.

Having my hair done with Jeffrey was one of the best service experiences I've ever had. He was totaly honest, up front with his thoughts, and everything he did was exactly what I wanted to see, but I just did'nt know how to say it. He is a mind reader, but not a show off. Just perfect. No stylist has made that kind of impact on me. I recommend him very highly.

His salon is absolutely beautiful, and his staff is top notch. A five star experience.

I've been to numerous salons on Boston's Newbury Street, and many salons off Newbury, and this experience was one of the best I have ever had. Very attentive service, restful atmosphere, and looking around, everyone else looked to have awesome cuts and color being done.

***Update:*** I am STILL going to Umi and the service is still wonderful. Every stylist I have been to has shown the utmost patience and care when dealing with my very thick and hard to handle hair. The only bad point is one of the receptionists during the day, who is very rude and acts like you are wasting her time when you try to figure out a good time - especially if one works during the day - a concept she did not seem to understand.

I just had my hair cut by Jeffrey, which was absolutely amazing. Although it took a long time to get in with him, it was worth every moment of waiting. He is quiet, intense, and an incredible talent. You won't get the usual conversation with him, so save the cliche lines for someone else- he is passionate and attractive beyond belief- this reluctant star is a refreshing departure from the usual nonsense.

I had my haircut by Jeffrey Dauksevich, which was sublime.

He brings something to the activity of getting a haircut that transforms it to an event- but so calmly and considerately; it sneaks up on you if you fail to pay attention. And, he is brilliant enough to let it just pass you by, should you miss it.

Bravo!

Not in business very long.

When compared to a 'seasoned' skilled stylist and salon,....it's a 'young business' trying to behave exclusively.

Deplorable service..

You know that feeling when you want a really good style, like you see in a magazine, and you go to a salon for it and what ends up happening is something else? Something average something that looks like some variation of the style you want to get away from? Its as if a stylist didnt even hear you or get it? Or just cant do it?

Well, Umi is the only salon in Boston Ive been to where the styles are really good, and it looks like what you see in magazines. I was impressed, to say the least. And, they are really good at explaining how to get different looks from your haircut. Intelligent!

I have been to Umi 3 times now (for haircuts and color), and had to write in to say how impressed I am with the consistency of the staff and service there. Very professional- always offering creative advice- and backing it up in an intelligent way. This is a very well managed salon- and a very talented group of artists.

Pros: Beautiful Color, Personalized Service

Exceptional cut, way below average color/highlights. Hugely overpriced. My advice... If you don't mind forking over $$$$ see Beth (she's very sweet) for a haircut, but skip the highlights.

Cons: Super Expensive, Snotty Reception

This salon is in a class by itself. I admire the care and dedication that these stylists put into thier work. It was great fun just looking around at all the styles being done, and feeling like I was definately in the right place. A Grade A experience.

The best haircut I have ever had was with Shirley recently at Umi Salon. The total experience was a pleasure, and she definately will see me again. Great salon, staff, and service.

I saw Shirley at Umi Salon for a haircut a few days ago. My hair has never been better, ever. She saved me. I was in a really low state of mind about it for a long time, and now I can smile.

Thank You!

I just went to Umi Salon for the first time and was referred to Shirley. She was absolutely fabulous, and for the first time in years, I am inspired and enjoy my hair again. She is a dream, and must be seen. The overall experience in the salon was A+... quality service, from entry to check out. I must say there is nothing else like it in Boston.

I loved my experience at Umi, and will definately return for Liz's incredible haircuts- she was a perfect fit for me. Everthing about that salon is ultra-chic... and the people there are really nice, helpful, and cool.

An hour with Jeffrey is the best thing that can happen to your hair. That is, if you are lucky enough to get an appointment. He sees things very differently than other hairstylists I've been to- actually, I would not label Jeffrey a hairstylist- He's a brilliant individual who happens to do great haircuts- lucky for us...
