I walked in here and was very frightened, but I desperately needed my bangs cut, they were starting to reach my nose. I had gone to Dellaria (my last salon of choice) and they were booked solid for the evening. I wandered around and happened upon this place. Hair was flying everywhere- I was scared! The stylist asked me how the bangs were, I said good and she said they should be a little bit shorter. I was scared because I have a big forehead. SHE DID A GREAT JOB. I love my bangs! She gave me her card and I think I will be returning when I need a full cut. What a great find
This place is a real find! Seda does a superb job at cutting, styling, coloring and gentle highlighting, plus an unbelievably cute kids’ haircuts for just $16 (she is quick and friendly, and the candy is there too!) It’s a Newbury quality service at a much better price, with a nice chance to find parking. They also sell many top-line hair products, European and natural, which I was not able to find anywhere else. I started by taking kids there, as an alternative to Snip-its, who frustrated us with unpredictible haircuts and long waits. After seeing my kids with such awesome “coiffures” time and again, I tried it myself and had to come back bringing relatives and friends. I highly recommend Seda’s service to anyone, who could get to Brookline!

I was a sophomore in college when I first discovered Salon Monet after desperately wandering down the C-Line seeking a new cut for a “new chapter” in my life. Ladies, you know what I mean. Salon Monet is a great find in Brookline in terms of quality AND price. I’ve always had trouble finding a stylist who can handle cutting and styling thick hair (I had previously gone to a few other salons in the area) until I found Salon Monet. I’ve had my hair cut, dyed and got my eyebrows waxed and the prices are all very reasonable. $12 for eyebrow waxing and they come out excellent every time. I definitely recommend checking this place out.
Well, I can tell you I looked like a new person. Such a fantastic job – great shaping and relatively painless. The ladies of Salon Monet have their strong opinions, but it’s well worth the slightly harsh criticism. Tough love, wonderful results.
As far as the haircut, $30-35 for a cut and blowout – and let me tell you, the blowout lasts for days (as well as the brows – weeks!). They work with super curly hair and super straight hair and the price is right (brows are $15 i believe). I experimented with a lot of salons, but always wound up coming back to Salon Monet… and they have always remembered me. Talk about customer service.
Five stars without hesitation. And you don’t even *really* need an appointment!

I have been going to Salon Monet over a year. It is very easy to get a haircut without an appointment and parking is very easy there as well. Salon Monet has great prices for hair cuts and waxing and their knowledgeable staff is eager to help you with any hair advice. The ladies at Salon Monet work hard to satisfy every customer of any age or gender.
