your first look inside {trephin} salon.

October 1st, 2010 · 3 Comments


I love it when readers ask us for advice! Like a few days ago, when a young woman wrote us asking for suggestions on cool boutiques, neighborhoods, etc., to check out in Boston. She recently relocated to Boston from London (poor thing) to attend grad school and came across our site and thought we could point in her in the right direction. Most important on her list? A “nice, off-beat place to get a haircut.” This requirement delighted me because I’ve been dying to give you the first peek inside {Trephin} (unless of course you’ve already been!), and now I’m helping a sweet expat, too! 

We wrote about {Trephin} in July after attending a photo shoot for its first print ad. Now, nearly three months later, the salon is up and running and about to host its first event — Powder Room — on October 4th. Located on the second floor of 25 Temple Place, the salon is a loft-like, open space, that employs a balance of Neo-Victorian and modern details — vanities are used as the stylists’ workstations, a tiered stand of brass-cast hands serves as a business card holder on the front desk, Louis Ghost chairs alternate with midcentury wooden chairs in the waiting area, super-modern Italian sinks function as wash stations. {Trephin} also carries organic hair products by Kevin Murphy and No. 4, both of which are impeccably packaged.

And for those of us who enjoy would employ a personal shampooist if we could (wait, is that only me?), wait until you experience it at {Trephin}, where your shampoo comes a view, courtesy of  a vaulted roof lantern, straight up into the sky over Boston.

    I love my new home! Most beautiful, fun, chill salon I’ve ever worked in with the most talented, artistic hairstylists who are so passionate about what we do. I feel so lucky to go to work everyday.
