If you’re in search of the best place on the North Shore of Boston for alfresco dining, where to taste the ultimate cupcake, which summer festivals and concerts are tops, or who to call for doggie daycare, the August 2016 issue of Northshore magazine delivers.

This year, Axle Color Studio takes home the BONS Readers’ pick for best Men’s Hair Salon.

The 11th annual Best of the North Shore (BONS) Awards celebrates the magazine’s editors’ and readers’ picks for the North Shore’s best food, nightlife, entertainment venues, shopping, spas, and services. Each year, local businesses and events are nominated and voted on by the editors and readers of Northshore. Over 150,000 votes were tabulated to determine this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards and more than 250 organizations are recognized as BONS 2016 winners across 170 sub-categories. Several new subcategories were also added this year, including: bacon, pie shop, date night, and comedy spot.

“Our goal with Axle was to create a warm, elegant, cutting edge salon where customers could enjoy the ultimate hair and makeup experience without the hassles of traveling into the city,” says Jackie Carpenito, Co-Owner of Axle Color Studio. “Winning this BONS award reassures us that our clients are happy, and that’s really the most important and rewarding part of our business.”

“BONS is our most popular issue and one in which we take great pride in creating. Our BONS committee researches throughout the year to vet the Editors’ Choice Awards,” says Nancy E. Berry, editor of Northshore. “From fashionistas to food critics, our team tastes, sips, samples, and shops for months to compile the BONS 2016 list.”

North Reading hair salon and makeup studio, Axle Color Studio, was chosen by Glamour Magazine and RevitaLash Cosmetics as one of three salons in the country to host a “Look of Ageless Beauty” event.

On Thursday, June 16th, Glamour Magazine and RevitaLash Cosmetics hosted a party at Axle Color Studio as part of RevitaLash’s 10th anniversary model search, a contest aimed at recognizing beauty of all ages and ethnicities while showcasing the natural beauty of the eyes. At the event, 60 guests were treated to hair and makeup touch-ups by Axle hairstylists and makeup artists, cocktails and bites from Above The Clouds Catering, professional photos by Dawn Kingston Photography and Polite in Public, and music by KISS 108′s DJ Costa.

RevitaLash Cosmetics and Glamour Magazine are searching the nation for women across all generations who represent the “Look of Ageless Beauty”, and ten finalists will be chosen by an expert panel that includes model-blogger-actress Julia Friedman, the founder and CEO of RevitaLash Cosmetics, Michael Brinkenhoff, M.D., and professional photographer Sarah Silver. Seven finalists will receive a $500 gift certificate to be redeemed on the RevitaLash Cosmetics website. Three grand-prize winners will receive a trip to New York for a photo shoot with Silver, a gift set from RevitaLash Cosmetics valued at more than $500, and the opportunity to appear in an issue of Glamour and serve as the face of RevitaLash Cosmetics’ 2017 media campaign.

Over the past 10 years, RevitaLash Cosmetics has aimed to be an innovator in eyelash and brow enhancement and beautification. The entire line of products is available for purchase at Axle Color Studio. For more information on the “Look of Ageless Beauty” model search, visit
