Best salon in Central Mass – I had a bad experience a different salon earlier this year. I went to Nina hoping she could fix the mess I had. She did! She takes her time to listen to exactly what you want- and if she suggests something- listen! She really knows what she is doing. Tony is fantastic, too. The space is very large, bright, and clean. I have been to Paul Conzo, St. Cyr, and Tu Moda, and Nina's Salon kicks all their butts.
Compliments to Tony! – I went in for my very first appointment last week and am so glad I chose Nina's salon. In the past I have had my hair done with "ok" results and didn't really complain because my hair is not easy to manage (or so I thought). Then I met Tony lol. First of all, I have extremely long, thick and curly hair which is like taming a lion when trying to style.
Tony was very attentive and asked questions about my styling needs. Not only did he explain what cut was best for my facial frame but also asked what kind of impression I wanted to make at work. Tony is so talented and definitely skilled. My cut has gotten rave reviews at work. Everyone was so impressed and said I looked so sophisticated and professioal.
Thanks Tony and I'll see you again soon!
Best Salon in Worcester with the most Talented Stylists – I have been searching for a competent salon in Worcester for at least 5 years now, and my search is finally over. I had been burnt by many, adequate at best, salons in the worcester area not knowing how to manage my thick, long hair. After reading a review about Tony, I decided to try him out since his prices are very reasonable. He turned out to be quite a talented, up-and-coming stylist, with amazing ideas and a great vision for hair. He focuses on the facial features, giving you the right style to bring out your best features which, therefore; brings out your overall beauty. He was very amiable and asked all the right questions. I had tremendously long, thick, brown/black hair. I was very weary of shorter-length hairstyles. He suggested a shorter style, I went with it, and the compliments about my hair won't stop! It is the best haircut I have ever had! He has a good eye and knew that a shorter, modern cut would work for my face. (But don't get me wrong, if i wanted to keep it long, he would've happliy done a trim as well.) He has an amazing talent and I will be going back to Tony for all my cuts from now on. I recommend him to all who want a magnificent haircut. The Salon itself is very modern and chic, but not pretentous or uninviting. The staff is very courteous and surprisingly accomodating. Nina has done an execellent job of bringing Newbury Street into the heart of Worcester. One feels pampered and luxurious while experiencing the upscale services of this salon. If you are looking for the best haircut you have ever had, see Tony! You will not regret it. And, if you are looking for the upscale Newbury St atmosphere with the high-end quality of haircut/hairstyling, Salon Nina Raffaella is definitely the one for you!
The best hairstylist in the region – In my 10 years living in Worcester County and trying many high priced salons, Nina is by far the best hair cutter and stylist in the region and also the best hairdresser I have had in my life! She is skilled in cutting curly hair, will work with the hair not against it in creating a style, gives great advice about the style and fashion to suit your face, and is also extremely skilled at coloring. The salon is beautifully decorated. The area it is located in is in transition and the building is rather empty and quiet. Due to the recession not much transforming is taking place now. But in time the area should be nicely renovated and the parking situation (street metered parking right now) should be improved. I have been a few times now for a hair cut and color and I could not be happier with Nina for all my hair styling requirements.
Beautiful Modern Salon with excellent hairstylists! – I am a college student and I was previously seeing the same hairstylist faithfully for a few years. I recently found out that he (Tony) moved on and is now working at Nina Raffaella. Yesterday, I went in to get my hair cut/colored by Tony. As usual, he did an exceptional job dying my hair to a beautiful, natural, sophisticated blonde as well as cutting the dead ends/fixing the overall shape! Tony's prices as well as the salon's overall prices are well worth the experience and results!! I could not be more pleased with the service of Nina Raffaella!
Fantastic Salon – I was so excited to find a salon in Worcester that offered Kerastase products, so I decided to try it for a badly needed cut instead of driving to Wellesley, where I normally would go. This salon is wonderful; the service was unbelievable and Nina gives an amazing cut. She didn't rush through the appointment at all and paid careful attention to ensure the cut was perfect. I couldn't have been happier. She recommended products without trying to force a sale (which, honestly, I will probably buy on my next visit) and was very friendly and attentive. I have naturally curly hair that I blowdry straight a few times a week and I find that more often than not, stylists don't know how to give a good blowout, even when you are paying a premium for it. Nina gave me a perfect blowout. I can't wait to go back in 8 weeks for a trim and color.
The salon itself is gorgeous and a giant step up from other locations in Worcester. It was easy to find and I parked right out front without a problem. I can't believe how lucky we are to have this salon in town.
"Outstanding Envirnonment for a Salon" – I have been in business in Worcester for over 25 years, and have visited every salon possible in Town.
We you arrive at Nina's it's very inviting and professional. The Salon is located in a converted
mattress factory which has a great look to it also. The Staff at Nina's are very warm and cordial, as well
as very attentive to the customers needs, they pay attention to every detail that you could imagine in a Salon. A visit to Salon Nina Raffaelas is truly an experience and well worth the visit.
I look forward to my next appointment...
Salon Nina Raffaella is the best salon in Worcester- a cut above! – I feel compelled to write because I LOVE this salon. I have colored, really super curly caucasian hair that I have struggled with my entire life. I used to go to Newbury Street in Boston but two years ago I started working locally at a Worcester college and Boston was just too far.
I tried all of the "big name" Worcester salon's and they were all fine, but really not great. I stumbled upon Nina at Salon Nina Raffaella early this summer and I feel as though I have struck GOLD. Nina is an incredible colorist and stylist. I have had more compliments on my hair over the past few months- than I had over the past two (2) years!
I have been back twice and both times Nina and the staff at the salon were very warm and welcoming. Nina spends the extra time to make sure your cut and color are just perfect. She has a great eye! The salon itself is gorgeous- when you walk through the door, you feel like you have been transported to South Beach. Very cool.
I can't say enough- I highly recommend this salon!
