4. salon invi, Andover, MA

At salon invi, clients are asked about their personal inspiration and they leave reflecting it. Sophistication reigns supreme here, and it’s obvious in the stylists, the products they use and the salon itself. Dedicated solely to hair, they believe if a salon offers services like waxing or facials, they aren’t being fair to their clients. Whether you adhere to that philosophy or not, it’s important to note that most clients become regulars after their first visit, and enjoy relationships with their stylists for lengthy periods of time.
