Finally a hair salon on Cape Cod that I can go back to! I've lived in Falmouth for over 5 years now and had been hopelessly searching for a hair salon I could call my own for the first 4 years. I'm pretty sure I must have tried nearly all of the better ones around town and never went back to most of them. Jim at Artisan Salon has been cutting my hair for nearly a year now and I couldn't be happier. The salon has a great modern atmosphere with a very calming feel. Adding to this is a most wonderful scalp massage with aromatherapy oil. Jim understands my hair and all its quirks, flips, and texture so the cut is long lasting and still looks great as it grows out. He also knows my personality and my maintenance level, giving me a style I can recreate and maintain. I also like that they use environmentally friendly hair products
Thank you so much for your expertise in creating my lovely hairstyle on my wedding day - you made me look and feel so pretty, just what I wanted! My bridesmaids and mother-in-law were also pleased with their looks by you and your assistant. Your time and attention to details would make it easy to recommend you to any future bride!

Artisan is both very hip and quite low key - and excellent combination with stylists that carefully focus on each customer. Jim has been doing my hair for 5 years or so and he is incredible. He is thoughtful and focused and does an amazing job of translating my random thoughts into the perfect style - you never get the feeling he is pushing to get one person done to get to the next, which is pretty common at bigger salons. There is no frenzy - the eclectic music provides a soothing background and the experience allows for complete relaxation. If you are looking for someone to gossip with, Jim is not your guy. If you want current information about all that is cool and going on around town, then he is a great source, something that is a terrific bonus on the Cape. I like that the salon uses natural products and is always looking for ways to help those less fortunate

I love that Jim always gives me a cut that is easy to take care of but still fun and professional. I always get many compliments on my hair after a visit to Artisan - even from men in my office!!!

Amazing! I have lived in New York and Boston, and Jim is by far the best cut and color I have had. The salon is small and intimate, decorated with mosaics Jim makes himself. They don't have piles and piles of product, but instead have a few, excellent brands (buy the collagen spray!). Since there are only a few stylists, it is always quiet and peaceful inside so you can truly relax. If you want a great hair cut or color with no surprises, go see Jim!

I was very nervous to get my hair cut in Falmouth, b/c many of the higher end salons didn't have great reviews online. I read a very positive review of Jim at Artisan Salon, so I decided to make an appointment. Was NOT disappointed! Jim was very friendly and very helpful, giving me a great consultation. He even managed to save some of my chopped locks to donate to a wig-making co. The pre-cut shampoo began with a scalp/neck massage, which was a nice surprise. The atmosphere in the salon is quiet and pleasant. My haircut looks great, and I'd definitely recommend the salon.
I moved from NYC over a year ago and thought i'd just continue to have my hair cut in NY when I visited-- until I found Jim Bowen at Artisan Salon. His cuts are smart, sassy and easy. Best best is the "brazilian blow out" he did several months ago-- perfection (I had it done in NYC a year ago, it was fine-- but not pefect like now). Jim is an expert in all things "hair"... and a lovely person.

Why do we use and recommend Aveda products?
Because, when we started Artisan Salon our commitment was to give back to the community and the world. Aveda uses 100% recycled plastics for their packaging. 89% of the ingredients that they use are organic. And, Aveda supports farmers and indigenous peoples around the world. Aveda is the first and only beauty company whose power is generated from 100% wind sourced energy. But, mainly because our guests love the aroma and the way Aveda makes their hair feel. And really, isn't that what it's all about?
What makes Aveda color so desirable? Aveda color contains a patented Green Tea extract for the most true-to-life tones and enhanced conditioning sunflower, castor and jojoba oils. Aveda leaves hair with rich color and healthy looking shine. Beautiful blondes, gorgeous redheads and sassy brunettes all agree. Aveda is the color of choice for those who care. For those who prefer an ammonia free hair color, we offer Chi Ionic permanent Shine Color, a breakthrough product in the color industry. American-made, Chi is known for long lasting color with unparalled shine. Using Ionic technology, the hair color molecules anchor themselves into the hair shaft without any damage to the hair.
