New Salon Opens in Milton’s Paynter’s Mill

by Dave on October 6, 2010

When he started cutting hair 10 years ago, Tom Archino knew that one day he would open his own business. That day has arrived. Archino on Oct. 1 debuted ThomasDavid Salon in Paynters Mill in Milton.

“We’re focused on everything having to do with hair: cuts, color, perms, texturizing, keratin smoothing treatments—you name it,” says Archino , who’s been a stylist for more than 10 years. “It’s everything that I do well.”

In addition, the salon plans to offer skincare services, including facials performed by an esthetician.

Formerly a stylist at Bling and Bad Hair Day, Archino saw a need for offerings that are both affordable and approachable. Cuts start at $40; color services start at $45.

“We want to appeal to people who want high quality services but don’t want to pay resort prices,” Archino says. He points to young parents with children who are watching their budgets.

He chose the Milton location because it’s convenient to neighborhoods both east and west of Route 1 and north and south of Milton. The salon is easily accessed from the highway but far enough from traffic to serve as a peaceful retreat.

The 1,800-square-foot space is open and airy with room for six stylists at contemporary-looking black stations, some of which are freestanding. Guests are greeted at a custom-made desk with sleek Apple computers, which are outfitted with a software system that lets guests book online.

Featured products include the Enjoy Hair Care, Coppola’s Keratin Complex Hair Smoothing System and Natrique Hair Color, an ammonia-free coloring cream.
