Alex is the best balayage stylist in Boston, hands down. I've gone to about 5 different salons and always got a subpar balayage and they never got the tone right. Alex fixed the unevenness of my old balayage and got it lighter with no damage. She also the first stylist to recognize that I cannot have ash blonde toned hair because it clashes with my pale skin tone. It sounds like a silly thing, but so many stylists immediately go for ash blonde because it's "in", but it doesn't suit me. Alex knew right away that I needed a neutral tone -  for me that attention to detail shows her level of artistry and experience. She also helped me figure out why my hair gets damaged so quickly even when I don't use heat products and then recommended a routine to keep it healthy.I won't be trusting my hair with anyone else from now on!

Stumbled on this hair salon on yelp randomly about a year and a half ago and I'm SO GLAD I DID! First off, Alex is an abs sweetheart. The salon is clean, nice decor, very well put together and comfortable. Danielle was my hair stylist, she gave me the haircut I really wanted and listened to every single detail I was asking for! It was my first time meeting her and it was like I've known her for years, what an amazing personality and great at what she does for sure! Already planning on coming back soon for some color trust me you would NOT be disappointed here! More...

Alexandra is a very talented, kind, and professional person which is why she has become a successful hair stylist . She listens and understands the need of her clients. She has done Brazilian blow outs to my hair leaving it super smooth and silky and has also done an outstanding job cutting my hair. My experiences in this salon have always been great. Ladies I highly recommend coming here to get your hair done! More...

I never post a yelp review - but I'm posting this because of how amazing this place has been. I've been coming to Salon Milage for the last 3 years for the Brazilian blowout, it's been life changing ever since. I've always gotten top notch services from Alex and her staff. Would give her more than 5 stars if I could - the best in Boston !!! More...

Was looking for a good hair salon in the Somerville area and found this gem of a place. Good reviews and all the photos made me want to try it out. Came in for consultation and was greeted with warmth and happy faces. The (what I assumed) owner took me in and after looking at my hair as well as listening to everything I had to say about what I want my hair to become, she was Super Honest and told me that I should wait to do any coloring. I appreciate honesty more than anything! I told her that I wanted to go back to my natural hair color. I have bleached ends, colored middle and an inch of natural roots. We made a plan for me to wait about a month and a half and come back to do single process and to cut those dead ends off. She saved me a lot of money because the dead ends would not take any color and my hair is too short right now to cut and dye them. I was very appreciative of her honesty even though it cost them good money. I did get a nice trim today though, just to get rid of some of that dead wait ans to even out the end lines. Danielle was the one who found some time and took me in before the closing time. I was very happy with the outcome. And again, VERY appreciative of their honesty.I will be back in a couple of months for that single process and another hair cut.I highly reccomend this place!!! More...

Girl, you need to get your hair done here.I have dark brown hair (and tons of it!) and was looking to shake things up with a blonde balayage. Having never gone lighter than a dark caramel, I was naturally very nervous and picky about finding the right stylist for this immense undertaking. After a 15 minute consultation with Alex, showing her some ideas I had found on Pinterest, I was confident that I was in good hands. We discussed my hair type, her method and products, and what was reasonable to expect from the balayage. I booked the balayage appointment for the very next week.Alex is a miracle-worker! She picked every foil placement with care and monitored the bleach process for the entire duration, reapplying where needed and constantly re-worked the foils/bleach where my hair decided to lighten unevenly to ensure a uniform, beautiful bleach. She routinely checked in with me to make sure I was comfortable and eased my anxieties. After the Olaplex treatment, Alex did something I had never seen before - she blended a darker toner (about my natural color) at the bleach line to seamlessly blend the balayage before adding a beautiful, ashy blonde toner. She achieved the exact blonde I was looking for!The level of care, professionalism, and talent here at Salon Milage is unmatched! Alex is a treasure - I left the salon with happy, healthy, beautiful hair! More...

I didn't receive any services here, but I did pop in for a quick consultation. I met with the owner, Alexandra, seeking advice on getting extensions/growing out my side shave. I was honestly very concerned about feeling like a hassle or a waste of time, but I was treated so nicely! Alexandra was honest and didn't recommend adding on extensions since it would damage my (short, still growing out) hair. I appreciated the honest response, especially since it meant that I wouldn't be getting extensions with the salon. I have a lot of respect for someone who cares about the client instead of simply doing what's best for business. So I wanted to write this as a quick thank you! If I ever need any services in the future I know I'll be by. More...

This was my first time getting my hair colored. Alex was amazing and answered all my questions and helped me decide the best way to do it. Do schedule a consultation so you can get all your questions answered and you and Alex both know what to expect out of it. I picked this place based on other Yelp reviews and am so glad I did. The whole experience was amazing and am definitely coming back here soon. More...

I have been to see Alex a few times now for various services including balayage, partial highlights, cut and style. She is so talented and I have always left the salon feeling beautiful and loving my hair. Not only is she excellent at her job but she knows so much about hair and will take the time to explain what she is doing and why she wants to do it for your specific hair. She has an extreme amount of pride for her work so she takes the time to understand the client and what they want so she can make sure that it will look good. If you are looking for a salon look no further, you will not be disappointed! More...

I loved having long hair but I went through a bad breakup and end up cutting 15inches of and donated it to Children's hospital. I was looking for extensions something semi permanent and salon Milage had just that. Most people know it as the keratin extension, I wanted something like this since I have straight, fine Asian hair. My hair was shoulder length but I wanted long beautiful hair for a couple events that I was invited to. Alex the business owner was so friendly and super! She was fully booked but she took her day off to see me and made sure I look fabulous! She took her time and was very patient with putting the extensions individually in! The process took about 3-4hours but I had 7packs of hair to put it. I love Alex I love my hair! I really can't express how much I appreciate her for seeing me on her day off to make sure I look gorgeous! Definitely a forever client! More...

I recently got a haircut from another salon that I wasn't happy with, but didn't want to go back to the same stylist to have them fix it. I have a black tie work event tomorrow and was stressed about the unevenness of my cut. I contacted Salon Milage via Yelp at about 11pm last night, and had heard from Alexandra by the time I woke up! Maria listened to what I was unhappy about, and meticulously fixed it. She was incredibly professional and thorough, and my hair looks GREAT! I'll definitely be returning to Salon Milage! More...

It's always a bit scary getting your haircut for the first time after moving to a new city, but my experience at Salon Milage was everything I hoped for. I'm not very good at describing what I want when it comes to getting my hair cut, and I also have curly hair that can be a challenge to work with, but Alex knew exactly what I wanted, was quick, friendly, very attentive, and made sure I was comfortable with what she was doing throughout my appointment. I'm very happy with the final result and am amazed at how well-priced it all was. Will definitely be back for my next haircut. More...

I can't say enough nice things about Alex and my experience with Salon Milage. Since moving to the Boston area, I've had mostly disappointing and overpriced haircuts...until coming to Salon Milage. From the moment I walked into the salon to the moment I left, everyone was friendly and the service was great. Alex greeted and seated me right away. I was there for a cut and had brought along a picture to give her an idea of the length I had in mind. Not only did she listen to what I was looking for in a cut but she offered some suggestions of her own that I liked the sounds of and she gave me EXACTLY the cut I was hoping for! Alex is a very talented stylist and I will definitely be back. More...

I wouldn't even THINK of going to a different salon! Alex is personable, always professional and cares about her work. I have persistent grays and she went out to shop the best dyes for my unique hair type. I have never been dissatisfied leaving her chair. I'm almost reluctant to write an honest review because I selfishly want to keep her to myself!! But this woman deserves all the success in the world for running an attitude-free salon that always stands behind the quality of its work. You won't be disappointed. More...

After almost a decade of searching for the perfect-for-me stylist, I can stop looking now that I've found Alex at Salon Milage! I only needed to spend about 30 seconds awkwardly trying to explain the hair cut that I was dreaming of and Alex knew right away what I was trying to describe not only because she interpreted my words correctly but she also assessed the best style and cut for my hair by examining it. We both agreed that a bob is a great cut for my hair texture and it frames my face nicely. I've had many bob cuts and I know they are difficult to do (ask me how many times I've been a hair model!), but Alex executed the cut with an experienced hand and added her own personal touches as well.I have very fine hair and don't love to use a lot of product and Alex gave me the confidence that the cut and style she was going to do would not only lift my hair and give me the extra body my hair needs, but that it would be a style that would continue to impress as it grows out. 1 week later I'm still loving my hair and am so grateful to have found Alex! She is a professional and so friendly as well. I enjoyed chatting with her during my appointment and am looking forward to my next haircut! More...

So, normally, I just wait until I go back home to have my hair cut/styled/whatever since I'm only in Boston for school and it's a lot cheaper to have it done in Texas. But I couldn't stand having my boring, natural hair anymore, and I felt like shocking all my classmates with a drastic change because I'm overdramatic like that.So I called to make an appointment for a consultation, and I tried to explain what I was looking for over the phone (needed my hair color lifted a LOT, also wanted a cut), but it seems there may have been a misunderstanding. I felt really bad because when I got there, it turned out to be a much bigger job than anticipated and Alex ended up having to spend a lot more time and effort. I'm so glad she took the time and care, though, because I love it so much and can't stop preening in front of mirrors or windows I pass by now LMAO.THE PROCESS: Alex took great care to lift the color in my hair many shades (from black to light blonde) and did an amazing job with little damage. She would check up on the parts she applied bleach to as she was working on other parts to make sure everything was okay, and when she applied the roots she noticed my scalp was very sensitive and took extra steps to manage that (rinsed out first application, reapplied with different products, monitored to see how the roots and scalp were doing with second try).After lifting the color, I had my hair cut by Maria, and she also did a great job. I showed her a picture of a style I wanted, or something similar, and she did quick but careful work and checked in with me through the process to make sure I was satisfied.I originally was going to go home and use my own hair dye that I had left over to color my hair, but figured it'd be better to just get it done while I was there anyway. Alex applied the color and it looked great. We decided on purple roots fade into pink because my scalp couldn't take the bleach and my roots were darker, and it turned out amazing. All my friends love that additional touch, it adds so much dimension. Just a side note, even if I hadn't applied color, the darker roots were still fine with the blonde. She did a great job.I've been to many places to have my hair lightened and colored, and this was the best job I've ever had done. The compliments won't stop pouring in, and multiple people have asked where I got my hair done less than 24 hours later. And I got to shock everyone I knew, it was great. So many gasps. I live for this kind of reaction. More...

My teenage daughter and I needed haircuts on short notice, and our usual stylist (the awesome Maria Ferry) wasn't available. So I saw the great reviews here on Yelp, and decided to take a risk. The only stylist I saw specifically named here was Alex, but she wasn't available, and we were handed over to Nicolette. What a wonderful surprise! We both got exceptional haircuts, and my daughter decided on the spur of the moment to get a "fantasy color" treatment of purple with blue underneath. Everything came out amazing, the cost was reasonable, and Nicolette was super nice and friendly. We will be back. More...

Salon Milage is the absolute best! I came here unplanned, after my previous salon was being very unprofessional . I am so glad that I came across Salon Milage! Alex is so talented, stylish, professional, and honest! I came in wanting a balayage which wasn't right for my hair and Alex let me know. I appreciated her honesty. She will never try and upsell you or sell you anything she doesn't believe in. She explained that 1. I basically already had the balayage look and 2. blondes often regret going dark once it happens. She was so right! She ended up fixing my brassy highlights and it came out so natural. The second time I came in for a scale treatment because my scalp gets extremely dry. She explained the whole process and offered to order me some of the product from the treatment if it works out. Again no pressure. Never any pressure from Alex. She genuinely wants to help her clients feel and look their best! Love this place! More...

Alex is still a super professional stylist & even more skilled with my blonde hair!I've been seeing Alex over the last couple of years & witnessed her expertise & passion for hair continue to grow tremendously. Although her business is thriving more, her organization & professionalism is what sets her apart from other stylists. She is punctual & communicates well. She genuinely cares for the health of your hair. As a blonde this is important due to the sensitivity of hair color & long term care. This time, I let my hair grow for a good six months without color. I asked for a cool ash blonde & it turned out beautiful. The multi tones are very well blended & any blonde knows this takes skill to do! Thanks Alex! More...

Finally got an appointment and came here for haircut. Alex is awesome, I was gonna do the keratin treatment because I saw yelps pictures those look so smoothly and beautiful. But at the time when I consulted with Alex, she recommended me to do the Brazilian Blowout instead of keratin treatment cause I've already have a straight hair. So I immediately booked an appointment next time after my haircut done.For the haircut, i was super nervous cause I had bad experience when I got the haircut in Boston. But Alex was really patient and professional, she really knows what customers want, and try to reach their expectations. She she's really careful when she was doing haircut, although I didn't cut too much but I still really satisfied what she had done for my hair. Can't wait to do the Brazilian blowout next time!!!

Absolutely amazing.  I came in for a Women's cut.  It was so easy to book an appointment and the online service is great.  I showed up early, but there is a great seating area where you can make your own drink.  Alex is nice and incredibly knowledgeable.  The shampooing was well done- perfect temperature and careful not to pull my hair.  I was in and out really quickly with a cut looking exactly like the picture I brought in.  Alex was very easy to talk to and even gave me advice on how to ask for what kind of cut I want when talking to stylists.  One thing I really like is that the blowdry is not included in the women's cut service, but is an option to add on.  This is great for me because it saves $ when I'm on a budget and means that I'm not stuck at the salon forever waiting for my hair to be styled.  I'll definitely be back and I'm so happy to have found someone I trust to do my hair in the Boston area.

Came in here after finally not being able to wait to go back home to get a haircut (since I go to school in boston) and Paco cut my hair without an appointment. I'm always very nervous about having someone new cut my hair but I have to say I was incredibly happy with the service and how I was treated. Loved my haircut! This place will probably be the place I go to when I'm in Boston. Came here again 6 months later and Alex cut my hair, and I still love this place! More...

This weekend I had my hair done by Alex.  I am very happy I chose this salon, as the fellow staff and herself were very nice.  I had been looking at bayalage on instagram for a while, and decided to take the plunge and had a consultation at Salon Milage.   I told Alex I was nervous, because I had never colored my hair before, but she reassured me and told me that I could pull off the honey bayalage with my light brown hair and that it would look great and she would do it subtle for my first time. I was pleasantly suprised when I saw the result! I loved how it turned out and am so happy I did it at Salon Milage! : ) More...

Alex is an exceptional stylist. I have been to Alex for multiple cuts and she is meticulous and thoughtful. She truly listens to what you say during the consultation phase to ensure she is giving you the results you want. She also has some serious skill when it comes to blowouts; I have long thick curly hair and have left may salons with subpar styles, not the case here. Alex takes the extra time to produce superior results. After searching for years since my move to Boston, I've finally found my long term salon! More...

I highly recommend Salon Milage to everyone. I came in for a brazilian blowout and Alexandra did an excellent job to my hair. She educated me a little bit about the process of the treatment and left my hair feeling straight, smooth, and manageable, my hair has never looked this great!!. She is a very kind, knowledgeable, and honest person and I truly appreciate that she is very committed into providing outstanding services to her clients. I am very happy with the results and will definitely continue to come to her salon as I am now one of her loyal clients!! More...

FINALLY- found my stylist! Alex is very professional and meticulous. She takes her time and delivers exactly what you ask! I had my first Brazilian blowout, trim, and corrective color and I could not be happier with the results. I'm glad my search for a stylist is over....finally someone who is a true perfectionist!!

I'm new to the area and have been getting Brazilian Blowouts for years. My hair is soft, thin and random waves with straight hair so its hard to find the right person who can understand my hair. Well I hit the jack pot with Alex. She's very professional, detailed oriented, thoughtful and thorough. She also has a positive energy yet very patient and really listens, which all combined to me makes her a great stylist. I also liked how she seems like a professional who's very serious about her work and wants to do a great job. I got a Brazilian blowout and cut and I think it's the best blowout I've had so far! Thank you Alex! More...

Very reasonable for a haircut but I still have not found a place that can effectively blow dry my frizzy hair! My haircut and blow dry was $40 total and my stylist was really nice to talk to!

I was nervous to find a new stylist after my longtime friend and stylist relocated to Florida. I did my research on yelp and was impressed by the reviews for Salon Milage so I decided to give it a shot. Everyone made me feel welcome from the beginning and Franco listened to what I wanted and gave me a great haircut! I will without a doubt be returning to this awesome place! More...

The service is excellent. I had a hair cut with one of the best stylist in the Boston area. The hair stylist made my experience at her salon just perfect and as expected. As I wear hijab, the hair stylist made the salon very convenient to do my hair there.She is professional and expert. The way she handlers my beautiful curly hair told me she is the right person to trust to give me a hair cut.The salon is clean and has decent number of products. The product she applied on my hair made my hair alive again.I definitely recommend this place More...

Went to visit Alex yesterday for the first time after a friend's referral. I went in for a wash, roller set, and blow out. Mind you I hadn't been to a salon in over a year so my hair was rough (dry, split ends, etc). Alex was friendly and professional and was gentle on my hair. She gave me great tips and left my initially dry hair feeling so silky smooth and shiny. I will definitely be back, Alex is legit!! More...

Salon Milage is a hidden gem. I have been getting keratin treatments from coast to coast since 2010 and Alex does an amazing job. Not to mention extremely personable and fun to chat with while you have your 2 hour treatment. The quality of the treatment is superb, she is a true expert. Worth every penny! More...

Stop whatever you're doing and go see Alex! She's a hair god! So before I found out about salon milage, I bleached my hair from black to blonde, AT HOME! which meant I had to bleach it more than a few times, so the result wasn't pretty, and my hair was left fried. I did my research and found out that salon milage does Brazilian blowouts. I called to make the appointment and Alex was very professional and pleasant on the phone. I went in for a consultation, and luckily she had blocked off the time to do the service if I decided to go through with it (how awesome is that?). She explained everything she was doing step by step as well as the aftercare. I had gotten keratin treatments at other salons and I had never had good results. But Alex knew exactly how to treat my hair, which I find so important. Now, when I usually get my hair professionally blow dried, I always have to go home and have to go over again because they never know how to work with my hair since it's so frizzy, but leaving salon milage, I had healthy, silky hair. I will never ever see any other hair stylist in my life as long as Alex is in the business. She has completely transferred my hair from a frizz ball into long sexy healthy hair. I can guarantee you that once you get your hair done at salon milage, you will never regret it or want to go see anybody else. More...

Alex is simply amazing! I cannot recommend her more highly! I moved to Cambridge for university and struggled to find a hairdresser that I trusted in the area. Sadly, one salon I visited completely ruined my hair. Instead of adding highlights, they bleached my hair, leaving an awful colour discrepancy (I have a balayage) - a very traumatic experience. Alex saved me & my hair (see photos) by blending the colour through and giving the right depth to the hair. She guided me through the process and knew what would work for me. And best of all, she is very reasonably priced. I'm only sad that I didn't find her earlier. She's terrific! My hair has never looked better, despite the terrible experience I had before I saw her.

Alexandra is fantastic. She is very nice and gentle. I have curly hair and she gives the best blow dry. Every time I come in my hair is shiny, silky and healthy. Recommend her 100%.

Alexandra is a committed business person who cares deeply about the quality of her services at her hair salon. I have been going there for approx 1 and 1/2 years and am satisfied, which is significant as this is a switch from my hairdresser of 20+ years! Alexandra works extremely hard and is flexible in working with the customer. When you enter this business you get the service directly from the owner herself. She offers expertise in many areas of haircare-I have had personal experience of cutting and coloring. More...

Alexandra, the owner at Salon Milage in Somerville is committed to making you happy with your hair. I have been going there for 2 1/2 years after relocating to the area. I have my hair cut and sometimes highlighted. Alexandra is always monitoring the work (as I have had other staff do my hair) or she is doing the job herself. She is always able to offer advice as she is very experienced. There are a variety of services at this salon although I can only speak for  cut/color. You can expect a thorough and creative result here where Alexandra takes care of every detail.-Danielle More...

I live down the street, and I came in today for a haircut. It was my first time at the salon and a new stylist cut my hair (I think his name was Pedro). I am so happy with how well my cut turned out! I have an asymmetrical pixie cut, and I have very thick hair, so my hair can be difficult and I don't always have good luck with haircuts. I'm glad I came in! I would definitely come back in the future. More...

Alex is amazing! I first went to see Alex for a brazilian blowout deal I found on groupon. My hair looked so great and was so easy to manage for a whole 4 months, that I decided to return. Alex exhibits expertise and care for what she does. I'm so happy to have found her! More...

I recently moved to Cambridge for graduate school and was feeling apprehensive about where to go to get a Keratin treatment, which tend to be pricey and of very varied quality. After poking around Yelp, I discovered Salon Milage conveniently located near Union Square and offering a promotion for Brazilian Blowouts! Alex is the best. She offered an amazing service that lasted as long as she said it would, and was extremely friendly and informative. Her blow out skills are also unparalleled - and I am a very discerning customer having been addicted to hair straightening and smoothing services for the past 15 years! I really enjoy and look forward to these lengthy treatments as the salon is cozy and comfortable and Alex is so talented and a great person to chat with! Highly recommended! More...

Thanks to yelp that i found this place for trimming my hairs. Unfortunately I could not get Alex to do my service but Maria did it. It took almost like half hour more than one to complete it but no negatives. I am in love with my new hair cut. Slightly on a expensive side with 50$ is what i felt. Otherwise a good place for hair cut. :-) More...

I took a chance on this place since it was close to home and had good yelp reviews. I was not disappointed! For $40 I got a fantastic haircut for me AND my 3-year old daughter. Alex and Maria were wonderful. Alex gave me honest advice about my haircut and hair product. After having been to some of the most expensive salons in Cambridge and Somerville and still having Medusa hair I am so happy to have found Salon Milage. I will be returning many more times for styling and color as well. More...

I went in for a Brazilian Blowout that I got from Groupon. Alex was amazing and so helpful. Sometimes I feel like vendors don't treat a customer as well if they come in with a Groupon, but that was not the case at Milage. I felt like Alex cared how my hair came out and was honest about the process and the potential end result. I would definitely come back here for a hair process. More...

I continue to visit Alex at Salon Milage and my hair is better than ever! I'd be lost without her!!! All her recommendations on what to do, how to do and what to use in my hair have paid off. Just got a Brazilian Blow-out... Wow! Totally worth the money! BUT you have to buy the shampoo and conditioner too... I know it's not cheap but, your hair is worth it! More...

Alex is fantastic! My haircut stayed good for a month. That means she not only can style your hair on the day when you visit Salon Milage, but also she knows how it's going to grow and makes the style future-proof.She also could accommodate my interview emergency on a very short notice. I am very grateful for that too. More...

I had an excellent experience here with Alex, the owner. I had a groupon for a partial highlight, and when I arrived, Alex told me the stylist who takes groupons was out sick, but that she was happy to take me and honor the groupon. She was friendly and welcoming, and apologized for making me wait only a few minutes.Alex took her time and explained the process for highlighting, and encouraged me  to ask questions if I had them. She recommended a color, and she was right, it was perfect for my base color, and came out really pretty. Despite being busy and the fact I was a groupon customer, she took the time to blowdry my hair to show me the color, and to make sure I liked it. She also gave me tips on growing out my hair, which I'm trying to do.I'd recommend visiting Alex if you're looking for someone to take time and do a great job. It's a cute little salon, and yields great results. More...

So last weekend I came for a Brazilian Blowout here. I had a groupon with me. I did a lot of research on salons, keratin treatments, whether to go for keratin treatment or a blowout. Because I really wanted to have a good job done on my hair.I met Alexandra and she have me a knowledged suggestion of going with the blowout, after looking at my hair. The whole process took about 2 hours (since i have lot of thick hair). After the treatment my hair looked fabulous. and its just not that. I know your hair looks great after coming out of a salon anyway. So i recently washed my hair and decided to write the review. Trust me the hair loks just as promised. Ofcourse its not poker straight or salon blow dried because this is not what the treatment is supposed to do. But its verryyy soft and manageable and smooth. I simply love it! thanks alex! She says it should stay for more than 12 weeks. Lets see.. I would love that if its true.. More...

As a certified BIG TIME scaredy cat when it comes to hair cuts, I am super appreciative of review websites that help me make a decision when new to an area, so here I am.  It had been well over a year since my last cut, and after a horrible slashing of my hairs 3 years ago, I can sheepishly admit that cut a year ago was one of only two since the bad cut.  Might explain my lifeless hair! While my 'do was the longest it had ever been in my life, and something I'd always wanted....as a kid my hair was kept super short because apparently insanely thick hair and a child who can't sit still for brushing makes for a Mom who won't allow length, I began to realize that I needed at least to get rid of some dead ends and thin out the unruly mess, or at most just go for it and have a chop.  Enter the awesome Alex and her wee little salon.  She was incredibly patient with me, had great suggestions, and truly made me feel confident that I made the right random choice of salons.   I ended up getting at least 7 inches off the front and closer to nine in the back.  I left with an adorable graduated bob that I friggin LOVE.    Her prices are more than reasonable, and you can be totally confident that you're in excellent hands.

For a men's haircut they are basically the same price as Supercuts but they are honest, friendly, and actually care about customer satisfaction instead of following the corporate model of getting you in and out as quickly as possible.  They are not some cutting-edge or frou-frou boutique, nor do they pretend to be.  Alex the main stylist is very pleasant and down to earth, with none of the stuck up attitude that one might expect from such a drop-dead gorgeous woman (sorry guys, she's happily married) especially in this business. Have been there twice and will keep coming back.UPDATE, 9/02/16:They now use the Booker app, which allows you to go to their website and book appointments and services online with up to the minute accuracy...it's like looking at their appointment book in real time, to see who's available on what day and at what time!  Really the icing on the cake, love it!

Friendly faces. Speedy services. Quality work. Getting my hair trimmed at Salon Milage is truly a positive experience every time! Not only is it reasonably priced, but like I said, the staff is so wonderful. Willing to give advice and really make sure they know what I want in a haircut. Even though I live in Brighton, I make the trek every time I need a trim/cut/styling. More...
