Great service and was able to take me 30 min earlier since I got there earlier. Very sweet and nice, clean environment. So happy with the service since I just started a new job down the street. She took a good amount of hair off and now I feel ten pounds light. Will definitely go back.

By far the best ouidad cut I have ever had, and I have had a lot. Great environment! I would 100% recommend this salon!!!

Laine is great! She is the second stylist that I have gone to for a Ouidad. She was able to help my hair transition from a very short (almost a pixie cut) to shoulder length without it being too awkward in the middle. Sometimes I feel like we miscommunicate, but when I express concern, she always addresses it. Her schedule is flexible, and you can usually get an appointment the same week. Her prices are good for the area!

Lainie saved my hair back in July during the most humid week of summer. She had me come in on her day off and even reached out after to make sure I was happy with my cut. I love that she’s eager to help and that she works hard to make sure her customers are happy. I’ve never had a hair stylist reach out after to make sure I was happy. You won’t be sorry going here !

I needed a change! I was always wearing my hair up because I could do nothing with it down. I have very thick, curly, heavy hair. "Lainie" gave me the "ouidad" cut and what a difference it made. She kept my length but took some of the bulk out. Now I can actually style it and wear it down. It gave my curls a lift and makes my head feel much lighter! If you need a change and want a haircut from someone who is skilled and professional "Helaine Marie Salon" is the place to book your next appointment.

Just heard about the Ouidad cut and started reading all about it, looked at the salons in my area that had a certified stylist and after reading all of the reviews, I decided to go to Helaine Marie. I couldn't be more happier! I have been fighting my curls for years and decided to embrace them! Helaine knew exactly what to do and my curls never looked so good! When I tried to repeat the look at home, I had technical difficulties, I mentioned it to Helaine and she had me come right in. She took the time to show me again on how to style my hair. Since then, I have been doing it myself with amazing results and tons of compliments! I even blew dried my hair straight to see how it looked and it came out great! I now have the best of both worlds!!!

Walked into the salon without an appt just to talk. I have always hated my curls. Had the Ouidad cut many years ago, then decided to blow dry straight. As a senior now, I just wanted simple. That means embrace my curls. Just didn't know if liked the length or wanted to go short. Helaine took the time to talk with me, and next I knew I was wearing the cape and getting the Ouidad cut. Helaine said my curls were thirsty (my hair looked dry) so she combed the product through my hair to get every strand. Helaine suggested I live with and see how I style for a week, and if I really wanted to go short, call and I can come back and she will cut short. What more can you ask for?

I went in without an appt., hoping for maybe a consultation. I have hated my curls for 60 years, (didn't know better the first 10) but no longer want to fight to blow dry. Helaine had time, sat me down, we talked and I walked out with a quidad cut. Fingers crossed, I can remember and do it myself. If not, I can go back within the week, and Helaine will work with me and we will get to a good place. Couldn't ask for more.

I love getting this haircut! I've been coming to Helaine Marie for years. Marie sits you down to really discuss what you want to get out of your cut or color, and I've always left happy. Growing up I got frustrated with my hair being relatively flat at the top and poofing out at the sides. My first Ouidad cut transformed my hair dramatically. It lets my curls fall beautifully and doesn't lose any length. The products nourish my hair well enough that I only get the cut twice a year!

Wow... my Ouidad, foil and all around experience was a positive one! For well over 10 years, I have gone to the same Ouidad stylist and loved my cuts but needed to find someone new due to scheduling issues. After speaking with the owner of Helaine Marie, I was left feeling confident in her abilities as a Ouidad expert and colorist, and she did not disappoint. When I left her salon pleased, she reiterated to me that her goal was for me to be happy with the results and wanted me to contact her if I was not happy after living with it. After one week, I noticed that my ends did not seem to curl like the rest of my hair and went back that day to consult with her. She believed that my not wanting the length trimmed at all was not giving me the look that I wanted. She then trimmed the ends, washed and dried, all for no charge, and sure enough that made all the difference in living with it. I love, love my cut and color and am so very happy that I have found my new Ouidad expert and colorist!!

Love my ouidad cuts from Helaine Marie! My hair is so healthy and manageable now. I can go several months between cuts, which I was never able to do before. The best part is the dreaded "shelf" that I used to get from other cuts is gone. My curls blend naturally. Lanie also does a beautiful Foliage foil, the color pops with my curls.

Let me being by saying I despise going to salons b/c EVERY stylist tried to straighten my curls and blow-dry me straight which looked good for 10minutes! Laine suggesting the ouidad cut and saved my curls! Within minutes of her styling, I could feel the difference. My thick hair was lighter and felt amazing. By the time I walked out of the salon, I had the best hair style of my life-gone were the frizzy, untamed curls! The BEST part was even 2 weeks later my curls were still fizz free, healthy, and manageable! And the compliments were non stop-especially from my man-wink wink! ;) Thank you Laine for making this girl a curl girl again!

For years I've been getting the wrong haircut for my hair type. Then randomly one day I googled hair salons for curly hair and learned about ouidad. I found helaine and I've been going to her salon ever since. The ouidad haircut has made such a difference with my curls and I always look forward to a visit to Lainey's salon.

Thank you Lainie for my very first Ouidad haircut!!! Only took me 35 years to discover this after many years of dreading haircuts, and dreading looking like a poodle. The longer I go since my cut, the better my hair keeps looking. Consider me converted - I'm so happy I found you! :)
by Michelle Zanowski on 11/08/2016

My curls are a combo of loose, classic and few tight curls thrown in and after my first Oidad cut they never been happier or looked better!!! It took me a few days to work with my curls and after that I'm loving them. My curls are lighter, have much more definition and less frizz (even in our fickle New England weather). Laine took the time to discuss with me my hair care routine and what I was looking for not what "she" would like. It was about me and we worked together to have something I would be happy with!

I was so thrilled to find a Ouidad certified salon in my hometown. I have been traveling around Mass. for years to different salons in the area to get my Ouidad cut. It has been a wonderful experience coming to Helaine Marie's salon. I always get a fantastic cut and color and an appointment at the last minute. I can call just a day in advance and she'll find a way to squeeze me in. The salon itself is cozy and clean with easy parking out front or in the lot next door. Lainie is consultative and consistently does a great Ouidad cut and color. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to tame the curls and have a great cut.

Thank you, Lanie! My curls are back! They are bouncy and full and just what I have been missing. Days before starting a new job, I reached out to Lanie for a very last minute appointment as a new client. She was more than accommodating, friendly and just what my hair needed. She took her time with me, reassured me that she knew what my curls needed and she was right. I was so happy with my first cut and recently saw Lanie for a post-summer trim. If you have curls, they need a date with Lanie. Happy curls again!

I've been going here for over 3 years. Lainie does a great job with the Ouidad cut. My daughter has curly hair too and she is now a customer. I highly recommend going to Helaine Marie Salon!

Lanie was the best. Great Pre and Post appointment follow up! I sent her a picture of my hair before the appointment and she assured me she could handle me. I have pretty tight curls with some kinky spots, and I have a TON of hair. I'm not from the area but I live here now, and finding a salon that can manage my hair has been tough. I have not had a Ouidad cut in YEARS and I'm so happy I gave it another try with Lanie. I'll definitely be back!

I did it! I am celebrating my curly hair!!!! Not since my "big" hair days of the 80's have I embraced my curls. I've tried to tame them but now they have been set free. Thanks to Lanie I can easily style my curls in a flash. It's so liberating. The whole experience has been great. Thank you Lanie for everything.

Can't say enough good things about Lainey! She took her time with me, explained how to work with my hair...not against it! When I came back for help the next week...she washed it, conditioned and showed me exactly how to style it....at no cost....I am finally able to wear my hair down instead of in a permanent ponytail!!! Highly recommend Lainey!

I hadn't had a Ouidad haircut in a while and went into this salon for the first time last year. Loved how my cut came out and got so many compliments on it from people! My hair felt much healthier and manageable. Will continue to come to this salon for my Ouidad haircut!

I love this salon. I have been coming for a number of years now for my Ouidad cut and I always leave happy. Lainey takes the time to listen to what I want in my cut and style. I will continue to return to Helaine Marie.

I had gone to another salon, but made the switch and have been going to Helaine Marie for a number of years now for my ouidad cut. I always leave happy with my cut and style. The staff is great, and they really listen to me. I will keep coming back!

I was so happy with my Ouidad cut at this salon I refused to cut my hair for the next 6 months! The cut made my super dry, unmanageable hair actually looks healthy-- without losing the length. Most importantly, it made it ten times easier to do my hair in the morning. Also-- super friendly staff, incredibly accommodating owner and a great small town neighborhood vibe in the salon.

I've had a few Ouidad cuts in the past, and my latest one with Lanie from Helene Marie is by the far the best! She took the time to listen to my current curl concerns and tailored my cut to help with those issues. She explained what she was doing and what we can continue to do to help me manage my changing curls. Im very impressed with Lanie and the salon, I will be returning for my next Ouidad cut!

I am writing in regards to my Ouidad haircut. Most of my life has been a struggle with my hair and I have never been able to find a stylist who can calm my curls. I have had trims here and there, but I have never been as happy with any haircut as I have been with my Ouidad. Usually my hair is boxy looking or it looks like a triangle and is full of frizz. I have never been able to find anyone to give me the perfect cut. I'm pleased to say that my stylist talked me into this haircut and although skeptical at first, I am now a Ouidad girl for life. Helaine Marie not only explained as she cut, she took her time explaining all the products she was using and why, without pressuring me to buy. I will be back for sure. Helaine is the best.

My teen needed a major overhaul with her hair. It was too long and unmanageable. We came to Laine twice, the first time wasn't quite what we expected. But after a few emails back and forth she got us in the night before school pictures and really took the time to figure out what would work. She didn't rush the second haircut and made sure my teen was comfy the whole time. I want to say Laine's follow up with clients goes above and beyond what is typically expected.

My daughters first Ouidad cut left a lasting impression. Lainey of Helaine Marie took the time to consult the technique and explain products to use for after care. This cut made her feel confident with wearing her hair curly, and since the cut, she opts to wear her hair curly as its more manageable and is not so "boxy" in volume. Great salon, personable and now she will only get Ouidad cuts. Her first cut lasted well over 6 months, we'll worth the price!!

I visited Helaine Marie for my first Ouidad haircut about two months ago - and it's literally the best haircut that I've ever had. My curls look fantastic and are super easy with a wash and go approach for the first time ever. What's really interesting is that my hair shape is also great when/if I straighten. If you've got loose curls and you're looking for a way to manage them I highly recommend both the salon and the cut.

It has been 4 months since my Ouidad haircut by Lanie, and I’m writing this review to declare that my hair still looks awesome! I have curls just like women I’ve envied when behind them in line or passing them on the street. Lanie was delightful when we met, and very informative about what she was doing and what I should do at home to produce these wonderful curls. I’m an accountant and finally feel comfortable not struggling to “tame” my hair each day for the office. Although it’s not at all necessary, I will visit her again soon to spruce up my do before starting a new job in December. Do let Lanie give you the curls you’ve always dreamed of but doubted you could have, because you can!

So happy to have found Laine! I had been struggling with my hair style, no one could get it right and my curls were just not looking good. After Laine worked her magic my curls are back to looking healthy and manageable. She did a great job with the carve and slice, listened to me when I told her what I like and don't like, and I walked out with a great cut. She also introduced me to some new Ouidad products that I hadn't tried before and I'm really liking them. Thanks!!!

I walked in to the salon and Lanie was really nice and super professional. She assessed my hair and how I wanted it to look and she gave me an amazing haircut! Lanie thank you for giving me curls back! I am planning on going back for another haircut and I would recommend the Helaine Marie Salon to everybody with curly hair.

I was so tired of being told that I should straighten my hair that I hadn't had a haircut in a year. my hair had no shape and frizzy and out of control. I got to a point that I didn't want to deal with my hair anymore and did a little bit of research and I found a certified Ouidad salon near my home and decided to give it a try. I had never had an Ouidad haircut nor did I know anybody that had had this type of haircut before and I wasn't sure what would happen exactly because I have had my share of really bad haircuts. So I went to Lainie and she was super friendly and nice. Above all she gave me an amazing haircut. She gave back my curls. Once my hair dried I felt like my old self again. My hair was light and had a lot of movement. Thank you Lainie and Ouidad!! I am definitely going back for another haircut.

Had been to two other ouidad salons in my area but this one was by far the best. She understood that my hair has different types of curls. I got exactly the hair cut I was looking for. Lanie is warm and friendly. Planning on going back and taking my little curly haired girl there too

I never liked my hair, it was always thick, frizzy and huge. Lainie at Helaine Marie has me in love with my hair. The Ouidad system is amazing. My hair is curly, not frizzy. Thick but manageable. I can't thank Lainie for the hair cut and teaching me how to use all the products for my hair that make it beautiful.

Love Helaine! My Ouidad cuts are great. I take my 10yr old daughter here too for Ouidad cuts. She always makes sure you are happy with your cut. I found her 2 yrs ago and recommended her to a friend with curly hair and I would recommend you try this salon too!
by Kaitlyn Campbell on 04/12/2015

The salon has a very professional and relaxed atmosphere. Helaine is very personable and makes sure you get what you want. The cut and carve took a lot of the bulk out of my hair while still leaving the length. I would definitely recommend trying this salon out.

Helanie provides a professional and relaxing environment along with a great haircut. The cut and carve took out a lot of the bulk, and made my hair feel lighter while still keeping the length. It will be my haircut of choice from now on.

I battled my curly hair for years until I found the Ouidad products. I was looking for a Ouidad salon outside of Boston to try the carve and slice technique. I came across Helaine Marie Salon and made an appointment. All I can say is wow! Laine is an amazing stylist. My hair has never looked better and she's now my regular stylist. I cannot wait for her to do my hair for my upcoming wedding. I know my curls will look amazing!

I've been wanting to try the "cut and slice" technique for years but wasn't sure if my hair was too thin and fine. I felt very comfortable as soon as I stepped into Helaine's salon. She was very welcoming and wanted to make sure I was completely satisfied with both the cut and color. After the cut, my hair has so much body! With just a spritz of water and botanical boost, my curls fall right into place. The color is fabulous, lots of depth and shine. I was very pleased. Helaine is my new stylist!

I have been getting Ouidad haircuts for about 5 years. I have been to two other stylists. One was great but too far for me. The other didn't do the rake and shake like she was supposed to. Lanie KNEW WHAT SHE WAS DOING! I have since referred two other clients who are also very happy with her.

The Carve and Slice as performed by Lanie. This woman and hair cut changed my life! Just what my curly locks needed !! Pricey, but not when you consider I got 6 months out of the hair cut, 6 months! And Lanie is a doll, I felt right at home. Great experience overall.

I have very kinky curly hair and usually going to the hairdresser was like going to the dentist- painful and not quite what I wanted. But I love my Ouidad haircut I got at Helaina Marie's! Laine spends quality time explaining about the curly hair cuts, products and has great patience! Thank you!

I was beyond thrilled with my Ouidad haircut. I have been using the product for years and finially decide to try the Ouidad haircut. Unlike my previous haircuts my hair has grown out quite nicely. I did not have the two blunt layers that I normally have when I get my haircut elsewhere.

I just had my second Oidad cut at Salon Helaine Marie, and I am so happy! My hair looks great! On my first visit, Lanie took time to explain how the Oidad cut works, how to care for my hair going forward, and which Oidad products were best for my hair type. It was a great experience, thanks!

The staff was nice and very polite, unfortunately my Ouidad haircut was not good, When the stylist washed my hair the water was too hot, the stylist never performed the rack and shake as it should be done. I left the salon horrified and was over charged by 25.00 dollars.
