Boston winters are rough on our skin and hair, but with a little proactive pampering, you can avoid the painful cracked, dryness they bring. Less than an hour from Boston, located in Hopkinton, MA (also the start of the marathon) is a four-story oasis that can help you accomplish your “New Year, New Me” goals in no time.
Haven Beauty is one of the only Greater Boston salons taking a holistic approach to self-care. Founded in October 2019 by Emily Sobers, Haven Beauty opts for essential oils over carcinogenic chemicals, holistic care over symptomatic bandages, and prides itself on being a trustworthy haven where guests can relax and replenish their bodies inside and out.
Haven started as a haircare salon offering all of the classic treatments from cuts to colors but has since expanded to become a one-stop destination for bodily rejuvenation. You can recharge with a massage, detox with their infrared sauna, glow up with a facial, or even partake in one of their yoga sessions! This oasis also landed on 2022’s “Best of Boston” list.
They carry an extensive range of brands, most of which you’ve probably never heard of, but ones that are actually clean and effective. There is no greenwashing at this salon. The founder, Emily, tirelessly discovers the best products with the latest innovations that will actually get you the same, if not better, results than those not-so-good-for-you toxic alternatives.
Some of the salon’s signature brands include Innersense Organic Beauty, Oway from Italy, and O&M from Australia for hair. For skin, Haven partners with a farm-to-bottle Californian brand called “Botnia, ” some of whose products you’ll get to experience during a Haven facial!
