2016 Winner: Shag

“Bad color is traumatizing,” says Shag owner Sandy Poirier. Don’t we know it. Fortunately, this salon’s 12 colorists communicate whether your desired shade is right for your hair and back up their honesty with some serious skills, completing about 300 color jobs each week. They pride themselves on gorgeous snow-cone pastels, inventive tri-colored ombres and artistic hair painting, but they’re equally adept at pleasing the single-process and root-touch-up crowd. Is it time to turn your gray skies blue?
