After working in the industry on and off for years, Christine Perkins started the thought process and planning of creating her own salon and spa for people to love. During the process, many factors came into play that were must-haves for this new business, like a great location, being environmental (not just with the products offered, but the space the services were performed in as well), and coming up with something that was different than what everyone else was offering. Having a team of people that love what they do and have available resources and benefits that are uncommon to the industry was important, too. It was also clear from the beginning that the products offered needed to be made from eco-friendly ingredients with an emphasis on scientifically proven effectiveness. We work to keep a balance with the cleanest ingredients we can and making sure we get the results we are looking for.
Our retail area is a testament to the commitment we have to getting the best products in the hands of our guests. We carry multiple lines in our carefully curated retail area. You currently will see lines like Davines, Naturopathica Skin Care, Ultraceuticals, Ethica Hair, Victory Barber, Circadia Skin Care and Youngblood makeup.
Quickly outgrowing the original location in Cambridge, we had to figure out our next move - which was to renovate or expand. The challenge of expanding was set as a goal, and proved not to be an easy one. After countless possible locations were considered, the perfect fit was located and the process began. Our newly expanded and modern space was moved just a few minutes down the street. We opened our brand-new 7,500 square foot space in November 2014, which more than doubled the previous location. Pyara was now able to accommodate more guests and offer a brand new, luxurious modern salon and spa, just steps away from Cambridge's Harvard Square.
Pyara Spa and Salon has won awards for multiple years from the likes of Salon Today Magazine Top 200 Salons, Best of Boston, Best of North Shore Magazine, to name just a few of the many.

At Pyara Spa and Salon, we wouldn't be where we are without our loyal and dedicated guests, along with our talented team of professionals.
One of the most common questions we encounter is: Why was "Pyara" picked as the name for the business? When putting together a design and business plan, we kept coming back to this overall concept of wanting everyone to feel as if they were leaving with a big hug. To tell the truth, we were being a little silly - but when trying to figure out a name that could translate the idea, we came across the word "Pyara." The main meaning is "beloved," in the context of being a term of endearment, and the second meaning is "hug." Coincidentally, Christine's middle name is Amy - which also translates to "beloved." It just felt right!
