What is the difference between The Extologist and Extology?

A question that I often hear and glad to answer. The Extologist is my personal blog site, from comparisons to before and after pictures, it serves as an informational hub and resource for all things hair extensions. Extology is my award winning hair salon, situated in the historic and picturesque North End of Boston, where me and my amazing team of hair extension specialists and hair stylists get to have fun (and make hair magic happen) every day.

The new hair salon is just a minute walk from North Station, or 3 minutes from Haymarket and just steps away from The Marriott Courtyard North Station Hotel. If you prefer to drive, you can find all of the directions and parking options near my Boston hair salon, you can look at my salon website which outlines the numerous public parking lots in our neighborhood. There are also some metered spots on adjacent streets.

And don’t forget: there’s a cafe across the street for your caffeine fix, and a fresh cannoli is just a few blocks away.
