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.”
