Ever since the eighth grade, Samantha Kane has had her heart set on cutting
hair and, after nearly nine years in the biz, the mane maven has blown past that dream with Blackroom. The South End spot, which debuted in March, eschews the sterile salon aesthetic in favor of black walls, warm wood accents and touches of gold on floor-length mirrors and Moroccan lanterns. Kane hopes Blackroom’s interior will be a cozy spot where customers can treat their tresses to cuts, coloring and hair extensions in addition to services such as eyebrow shaping and makeup application and lessons. What makes Blackroom a bit rare, however, is its genderless pricing—based instead on time, skill and amount of hair. On her hopes for the salon, Kane says: “We just want to be ourselves, give you good hair and laugh a little in the process.”
