Fabulous man does fabulous hair – Concur with many others on here: Jimi is great! Called him up one day letting him know I was a new client looking to go from brunette to blonde. He had me in his chair the next day and we discussed extensively what I did and DIDN'T have in mind. He walked me through the pics I had brought, talked to me about the realities of both the cost and maintenance of the color I was interested in, and so on. I felt no pressure. He gave me the space to think about it. In all, the consult was great. So good, in fact, that while there in his chair, I decided I needed a haircut - I mean, why not? - and so I got to see him work some magic on my hair. Walked out feeling gorgeous, with a flattering cut, and a great new stylist. He's super friendly, lots of fun, and I would recommend him to everyone who needs to hear someone just tell it like it is.
Fabulous Colorist – Jimi is just so awesome! I had a great first appointment with him. I desperately needed my hair colored. I brought in a picture of what I wanted the color to look like and it came out EXACTLY like the picture, spot on! I had a lot of old red coloring in my hair and I was concerned that it might come out orange - how silly I was to worry, I was in great hands and will be again, as I have no need to search further for a hair stylist. I've found him.
He also gave me a great cut. I walked out feeling like a million bucks!
Having Jimi color, cut and blow dry my hair was a really fun experience, he's a great listener and obviously a master of his trade.
Excellent – Jimi is simply wonderful. First, he is a great listener. He spent a good deal of time listening and discussing my hair color crisis. I felt he was invested in the results and in cultivating a long term client. Next, he explained the color correction process, and his knowledge made me comfortable with each step. Then he worked his magic…bring back my medium brown color, which had been dyed a flat, almost black color at a “Best of Boston” salon. I am absolutely thrilled with results. He even followed up with me a week later to make sure I was happy. He is a color and color correction expert, and a true gem. I am thrilled to have found him and will sing his praises to anyone who will listen.
The Last Stylist You'll Ever Have! – I read another reviewer refer to Jimi James as the 'rock star of hair,' which I thought was the perfect way to describe the way Jimi transforms your hair from drab to fab! That sounds corny, but I have never had a stylist earn such high marks in all areas:
1. He's personable and friendly, you'll feel he's an old friend within the first 15 minutes of meeting him
2. He styles your hair how YOU want it, not the other way around
3. He is a wizard with hair color. Seriously, the man has a gift. I had my hair dyed an unfortunate shade of fluorescent 'carrot' orange by a salon in a nearby mall (Jimi even correctly guessed which one it was, ha!) and he was able to not only correct it, but give me the exact shade of red I'd been wanting!
4. He does all this makeover magic in under 2 hours! I used to spend close to 4-5 hours at my old salon!
5. He has very reasonable prices, especially compared to salons in the area
6. Though his claim to fame is through his knack of hair color wizardry, he also gives FANTASTIC hair cuts and blow outs! Seriously, I have long, extremely thick hair and, at pretty much every other salon I've been to, they gave major attitude when I asked them to blow dry, and I'd spend 20 minutes with my head upside down or they had me do it myself. Jimi thinks that that is a cop-out and major disservice to a customer and actually took the time to do it right and made sure I left happy!
7. Do you need another reason? You won't find a better stylist than Jimi James around! You will walk out of the chair with the best looking hair you've ever had--get ready for multitudes of compliments!
Jimi James is now located in Cambridge at 44 Prospect St. He rents a chair out of a place called Lewis' s Hair Salon. It's actually right off Mass Ave, so it's very convenient to the red line or bus routes and there is metered parking around the corner.
great color – Jimi took my hair from bleached blonde highlights to dark brown in less than 2 hours and it looks amazing! Thanks Jimi!

AMAZING hair colorist! – I went to Jimi James for the first time five weeks ago for a color correction after I had some horrible lowlights put in by another hairdresser....not only did he get rid of them completely and bring my blonde hair color back in ONE appointment...he made it the most gorgeous shade of blonde EVER...I absolutely love it....I am getting so many compliments on my hair!! Jimi James truly is an EXPERT hair colorist! He cares about his clients, he will give you exactly what you ask for and you will leave his chair looking beautiful :-)
I am truly ecstatic about my new hair color Thank you JIMI – I'v read all the comments on Jimi James the great, not so great and the ons form people who will never be pleased. i made my appointment for Dec 20 (sunday) and was VERY VERY IMPRESSED. 3 shades of blonde hair done as full foil. My hair is AWESOME so many compliments. Jimi James is high energy guy thats quick and tells great jokes and i felt very connected with him from start. Hes a GREAT hair colorist.
I AM so happy I made this appointment my search is over.
He might be crazy, or on drugs? Erratic for sure. – Nice, charming, bit crazy presentation. He only did half the job, promised to fix it in a few days, Told me credit card machine was not working and asked for a ride to my atmso I could give him a few hundred. I called several times to to finish work and he never called me back.
Miracle Worker! – Jimi James is nothing short of extraordinary! I came to him with FRIED bleach blond hair courtesy of another stylist. In just one visit, he gave me soft, healthy hair. Moreover, gave me back my natural color! He is also open on Sundays which is very convenient.
