I have been a stylist for almost thirty years now. After working in the hair industry for 12 or so years on Newbury Street in Boston at a few high-end hair salons, I decided to make a change to the developing Financial District. I became a stylist because hair was always an interest of mine. Noticing shape, color and texture in style magazines as a young teen also led me to art and the process of art making. I applied to beauty school, graduated and went on to getting my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Today, I am grateful that I am able to find a balance between the hair industry and my art, creating beautiful hair and artwork.

Why I became a stylist: I became a stylist because hair was always an interest of mine and because of its intrinsic connection to my other passion, art.
What’s your favorite Living Proof Product and Why? My favorite product from Living Proof line is the No Frizz Styling Cream. When blown into the hair the styling creams gives you smooth, shiny, bouncing frizz-free hair with volume.
One trade secret you would share: A hair secret I pass onto my clients to cutting your round brush blowdry time in half is to take out 80% of the water from your hair first. You can do this by air drying or using a blowdryer. Then start round brushing you hair in sections beginning in the back and making your way to the front.
When not at the salon, is most likely found: In my art studio at 450 Harrison Ave, Suite 212 in the South End. You can check out my artwork at www.monrud.com
“ In May of 2000, still not having found a stylist I liked (and more importantly trusted) I went to a salon for a simple sleek haircut and walked out looking like Jennifer Aniston in Friends. The haircut was both not what I wanted and not flattering to the shape of my face... Desperate, I contacted Mitchell John and came in the day of my vacation for an "emergency" haircut. Not only did Monrud fix the haircut that I received the day earlier, but he gave me a stylish look. That was ten years ago... Monrud is a unique and creative stylist who you can trust completely. The greatest compliment is that his haircuts get better with time.”

“I met senior stylist Monrud in 2003 at Sephora. I lost his card and then ran into him at the Red Sox wives fashion show one year later and let him cut my hair the following week. This man is an artist... he only uses a razor and takes his time to perfect his work. Sounds completely dramatic... but it was almost like he was making love to my hair. Now that's hot. The salon has great Bumble products and is moderately priced for an upscale salon. I have a new stylist in Chicago, but nobody cuts my hair like Monrud.”

“Monrud is as good as it gets when it comes to knowing how to cut and style. He gives a great blowdry too! He will always give you exactly what you ask for and knows how to improve your current style to fit your face. (Especially if the last hair stylist created world war three on your head!) He understands "sexy" hair…a hard concept for many stylists. And if you are just in the market for a sexy blow dry prior to that hot date, he is fabulous! Boys, boys, boys, Monrud can work wonders on you too, but don’t get too excited when you lay eyes on him. He is gorgeous and very spoken for! Sorry darlings. This is one of the few salons located in the heart of Boston’s financial district, which makes it an excellent and easy choice for anyone in town for business or based downtown for work.”
