Our Mission

Our mission at Velvet is to bring natural Texture, enhanced Richness, and Diversity to all hair.
The studio aims to bring these words to life with our highly educated staff.
Each Velvet stylist strives to stay innovative by creating new and classic styles specifically designed for each individual client.




"I would give this place 10 stars if I could. Great vibe/music play lists. Amazing staff, all highly skilled, up to date with education on current trends and each unique with the looks they produce. I would feel comfortable seeing any of the stylists here."

"My hair always looks amazing after Annie works her magic! I also love that Velvet doesn't feel like a typical salon; it doesn't smell like chemicals, there isn't the constant noise of hairdryers and then the music blaring over that, I actually leave feeling relaxed and not with a headache like at other salons I've been to."

"I can’t say enough good things about Velvet salon! As a busy mom of two, the atmosphere is something I can’t wait to enjoy for a few hours while I am there. Keyana and all of her stylists are super friendly and down to earth. They take their time with you and really make sure the service you’re getting is what you are in need of, and my expectations are continually met."

Please do not park in the Cambridge Shopping Center (across the street) - they will tow! There is meter-free street parking all along Gay Street. We also have a small amount of parking behind the salon on a first come/first serve basis.
