Best Hair Salon or Barbershop in Charlestown?

Please vote for your favorite salon by taking our poll, then clicking on the directory link and writing a short one or two sentence review.

This week in our Best of Patch Readers' Choice contest, we want to know about your hair—or, at least, who you go to for a cut. With Spring around the corner (or, judging by the weather, already here), who in town will you trust with your next trim?

Here are some of our favorite places, but if we're leaving one off of the list, please let us know in the comments and we'll add it:

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

Salon 44 for sure. Great people and a great cut.

Reynees is hands down the best salon. The staff make you feel comfortable the minute you walk through the door and they really listen to what you want in a hair style/cut. They make it their business to know their clients and their clients hair. You walk out the door feeling like a new person after your visit to Reynees.

Salon 44 is amazing!

Ambiance is the best by far! Debralee does the best keratin treatment,my hair is like silk and my life is sooooooooooooooo easy now! Barb the owner is great, makes me want to hang out there even if I'm not getting my hair done cuz she's so warm, funny & friendly. Have the best spray tans also, really natural looking! Thank-You Marcella for referring me! The entire staff is great, salon is very elegant and charming, offering complimentary flavored coffees, teas, & water, nice candles too! Love everything about it! Especially my beautiful hair!!!!!!!!!! Gail

Salon 44 is the best salon in Charlestown!!!!!
Holley Serpa March 23, 2012 at 03:57 AM
Hands down - Ambiance. I've been with Barb since the Studio 330 days... I'll never go anywhere else!! Aside from the amazing color and precise cuts, the entire staff is welcoming and talented. There is no better shampoo & head massage in Boston than Marsala's magic hands...

Bunker Hill Barber Shop. Hands down the best haircut I've gotten in a long time. And it's a legit barber shop (hard to find, now a days).

Ambiance with out a doubt is the number one salon in charlestown. What isnt there to say about this great salon.The moment you walk in the door you are welcomed by beautiful and happy faces. Not once have I went their and have not been greeted by a smiling face. i am always offered tea,water, coffee etc. The staff always makes sure that My needs are met. They have master stylists that cover all ends of the spectrum. I am constantly being asked where i get my hair done. I have had many friends go to other salons in charlestown and have been disapointed. i refered them to ambiance and barbara and her team have never failed to fix their problems and leave them feeling extremely beautiful and happy! If their is one salon in this twon that deserves it , it is ambiance. A great group of hard working and determined women. they definitely get my vote! GO AMBIANCE !
Toni Ann S March 23, 2012 at 12:52 PM
Ambiance is obviously the newest best place charlestown has to offer.....Providing the most up to date in products and services
Mary March 23, 2012 at 12:58 PM
I am new too charlestown and was refered to ambiance salon and spa. Let me tell you i was left beyond satisified. From the warming and devoted staff, to the amazing service i received, I never want to go to another salon! they offer the best services, products, oh and marcellas head massages are out of this world. may have to go in just to get a shampoo :)! Ambiance is the winner in my eyes by far!
jenn C March 23, 2012 at 01:04 PM
Ambiance is fantastic! I went to Debralee following a botched cut at another salon and have kept coming back. She not only fixed the messed up bangs, but also gave me a great cut. She has an amazing knowledge of the latest styles and is able to tell you what styles will work for you and what won't (or what you could do to make it work!). A few weeks ago, I bit the bullet and got a Keratin treatment with Debralee. I have a TON of really thick hair, and didn't think it was going to work, but it did. Debralee did a fantastic job! The Keratin treatment was amazing. I could not more highly recommend a stylist. Ambiance by far deserves this vote!!!!!!!!!!!
Caroline March 23, 2012 at 01:12 PM
I love the girls at Salon 44 and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.
Ian March 23, 2012 at 01:13 PM
