I am literally (still) glowing after my recent facial with Emily J. I didn't know it was possible for my skin to look airbrushed without a touch of foundation.
I suffer from regular hormonal breakouts and not only was Emily able to rid me of the worst of my acne but I haven't had a break-out since visiting her a week ago.
Her professionalism and gentle touch meant I never felt uncomfortable, even during extractions.

Do yourself and book yourself an appointment ASAP!

I've been going to Kenny for haircuts for over thirty years. He's the type of stylist you would find in Beverly Hills or NYC cutting celebrities. His work is amazing and I am constantly getting compliments on my hair!

-Debbie F.

I've been getting my hair done by Shawneen for over 10 years. And seriously,  I've never had a bad cut.
She is such a talented stylist, and extremely thoughtful as well.  She helped me explore different looks that I never would have thought of, yet never pushed me in a direction that I wasn't comfortable with...These days I have a beard, and she even got a beard trimmer to make it look great... The entire staff is super friendly and professional. Kenny and Kris seem to have done a really nice job with making it a great place to work and that comes out in the way people treat customers and each other...Overall, Shawneen is the best stylist I've ever had, and Kenneth Wildes is a great salon for me.

-Marc L.

Always have the best experience here. Gifted staff that understands styling & color. Come all the way from New York for my hair cuts.

-Remy M.

My friend referred me to Carly for a spray tan. It was my first spray tan ever so I was a little nervous but Carlie made the experience so pleasant! She made me feel comfortable and did a thorough job.
She answered all my questions about the ingredients and products she used. I was especially nervous that my tan wouldn't last, but the product I bought was awesome and made my tan last a full 7 days! Definitely would recommend (especially to first timers) if you're looking for a spray tan in the Newton area.

-Sam K.

I came in for a brow wax with Carlie (she's an amazing waxer and always creates a great shape!!) when she mentioned she does spray tans as well. I was sick of being pasty for winter lol so decided to give it a go. Carlie was GREAT and I loved loved loved the color. Great salon with great services, would definitely recommend!

-Tay K.

I have had the most amazing haircut with Kristin and Brazilian Blowout with Shawneen! My daughter loves her color with Diane and I recommend this salon to anyone that is looking for expert level services. The staff are all extremely knowledgeable and professional and the salon is clean and beautiful!!!

-Julie G.

I have been Kristin's customer for at least 10 years now. No one in this industry compares to her level of professionalism, and skillfulness. I receive lots of compliments on my hearcuts, and always feel that Kristin does a perfect job. She understands what style will help enhance your looks and how to make a desired hair style work for you. She is simply amazing.

-Natasha R.

I just had an amazing facial from Emily.  She has tons of experience here in Boston and also knows her stuff!  The cooling mask was amazing, definitely recommend going to see her!

-Bailey L.

I have been following Nathaly for about 3 years now. Not only do I walk out of the salon consistently looking and feeling like a bombshell but Nathaly is JUST that- CONSISTANT. She is forever evolving and has a deep hunger to learn more and consistently be BETTER. She is professional and will always be honest- but with my best interest in mind.

-Hayley M.

My new go-to place! I got a great cut with Kim and Steven did a fantastic job on color. The staff were all so friendly and professional and accommodating. Really happy I found this salon!

-Lauran H.

I have been going to Kenneth Wilde Salons for over 15 years.I love how they are always updating and innovative, I received wonderful color from Natalie yesterday and a masterful cut from Kenny. I highly recommend this salon.

-Jennifer R.

This is probably my favorite salon in the area. A smiling face and welcoming atmosphere every visit. The stylist are well trained and know what they are doing. Every person I have seen takes the time to see how my last service was and how I like the results. They take the time to see if anything needs to be changed. They treat me as not just another person but as me and make my experience individual to my needs and daily styling habits. Truly one of a kind.

-Marisol H.

Thank you Kenneth Wildes Salon once again for making me feel like a million bucks!!  Today I saw Emily and she was amazing- I have very thick curly hair and other stylists I've seen at other salons haven't been able to handle it the way I like it done- Emily didn't even break a sweat!  A truly perfect experience.

-Jessica M.

i love this salon. Diane Todd is the best of the best. kudoos to Kristin and Kenny for being such great operators.

-Bestie M.

So I just have to say how much I love this place. Since my former stylist left I've been seeing Emily and she is so skilled! The service is amazing (Emily even ran out and put quarters in my meter today so we could finish the blow dry without stress!)

I'm starting to think Kenneth teaches all the stylists to cut a certain way because the end product seems very consistent. Again, the atmosphere is really chill and you feel well cared for. Oh and the Sunday hours are wonderful for weekends when you're Saturday is already packed.

-Mary C.

Such a good place! They are really tuned into the little customer service details that matter (and lots of salons ignore... you know what I mean...) and they listen well to what you ask of them. Every person I've met there has been incredibly nice and very experienced. Kristen does a great job making my super short thinning hair look nice. I always get compliments on it. And the colorists are all really good.

-Amy V.

I'm so happy I found this salon and Carlie! I'm a frequent spray tanner and I've had the best spray tan experience yet at Kenneth Wildes. Carlie was great and really payed attention to to my skin type and formulated a custom color for me. I loved the color, it was a natural bronzy glow. My tan lasted for a week and faded evenly. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a natural beautiful tan in the Newton area!!

-Paige D.

I've been going to Kenneth Wildes for years, and I love it each time! Kristin is amazing and always understands exactly what I want. I've also seen Steven a few times for color and I constantly get compliments on it. The staff is friendly, and I love the clean and calming feel of the whole place. Would definitely recommend!!!

-Ardan M.

I've gotten balayage, a Brazilian blowout, hair cut, brow waxings, and more from Kenneth Wildes and I can't imagine going anywhere else. Everyone there is so friendly and professional, and the services are phenomenal. Also, they sell every Kerastase product under the sun and the location couldn't be more convenient. Definitely the best salon I've found in the area.

-Lauren A.




I just wanted to email you to personally tell you how impressed I was with my first appointment at your salon yesterday morning.  I have lived in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston for the last 7 years, and just recently moved to the suburbs. I was extremely hesitant in picking a new salon outside of the city, and tried yours for the first time yesterday. I had a full balayage treatment with Steven, and a cut and style with Morgan. I cannot emphasize enough how excellent these two were. I showed Steven a few photos of what I wanted, and he accomplished it to a tee. I explained to Morgan that I wanted something more fun done to my hair, but that I needed to be able to still pull it all up for work, and she gave me a fabulous layered cut that I'm in love with. I also explained to Morgan that I've recently experienced thinning of my hair, and she educated me on a shampoo that you had at your salon, which I ended up buying as well. I just wanted to let you know that you have a fabulous staff, and a fantastic space. I've been raving about it to friends and family since I left, and I will absolutely be back. Thank you so much for such a great experience!




-Gina U.

If you want a great haircut that looks terrific when you walk out of the salon but even better two weeks later when you haven't had time to put any effort into your hair, this is your new favorite place. Kristen and Kenny Wildes are something you can't find every day. Real, substantive people that care about you as a person not just as a paying customer who are dynamite at what they do... Great hair, style and personalized care. Trust me, you've been dragging yourself down to Newbury St for no reason. This place is beautiful, classy, clean and kind just like the people who work there and run the place. You will not find a higher level of service and expertise and certainly not people this great anywhere else. Treat yourself to something fabulous. GO!!

-Britt C.

If you're looking for the right person to care for your skin, it's Emily. I had a facial with her last week, and my skin has never looked or felt better! I was really in need of some TLC and she was just absolutely wonderful! Go see her, she's the best!

-Brittany E.

I had a wonderful experience today. Carlie suggested I see Emily for a trim today. I don't normally let just ANYONE trim my hair. But Emily did great, she listened to my concerns, suggested a better hair care routine for at home and hooked me up with some better products for my hair. I rebooked with her and she's the only person I will let trim my hair!!!! It looks great and she didn't take it too short.

-Erin F.

Got a fabulous haircut with KENNETH WILDES yesterday!! I really loved what he did. Such a unique style of cutting and the end result is amazing!!!
