J Christian Rea - Owner Salon 647

Christian grew up in Northern Maine in the town of Van Buren. From as far back as he can remember he always wanted to be a stylist. In 2001 he enrolled himself at Headhunters School of Hair Design of Portland Me. Half way through his course he took a chance on exploring the country and put his career on hold. During this time he discovered his passion for make-up through this discovery he was able to travel around applying make-up for different events. In 2005 Christian relocated to the Worcester area where he finished his Cosmetology course and started working at Hair Excitement of Sutton. After three years under the direction of Sandra Roy he decided to make a career move to Jeffrey Robert Salon & Spa. This is where Christian was able to apply his talents as Junior Artistic Director, Television, along with being publish in local magazines. Christian was a character on the hit reality show “Split Ends” for two seasons. During his time at Jeffrey Robert Salon he also had the privilege of hosting the city of Worcester’s Pride celebration 5 years in a row as his alter ego Miss Crystal. Christian has held fundraisers for different organizations that help different communities in need over the years. He decided in 2009 that it was time to venture out on his own and thus he created Salon 647. Since 2009 he has grown Salon 647 from being just himself to what it is now. Christian truly believes, that to be successful in your career you must have passion in what you do. 


One thing that most people don’t know about Christian is that when not in his element, he is very shy.

I found this salon on the internet. After reading all the excellent reviews on it I decided to give it a try. I was in desperate need of hair color since the hairdresser who did my hair before did a terrible job. I made an appointment with one of your stylists.  She was wonderful! Very pleasant and friendly. She took the time to talk with me about my preferences and look I was looking for. I am very picky about my hair and she exceeded all my expectations. There was not rush during my appointment. I felt I was NOT in a "factory" where the only goal for the hairdressers is to take as many customers as possible. I did not have to wait for my appointment as I used to in every salon I went before (I tried many salons).  She was all about quality and customer satisfaction. She did a wonderful job on my hair. My color looks great as well as the haircut! Happy I found her! Thank you salon 647.

I always get compliments when Lori cuts and colors my hair.  She helps with ideas for styling at home.  And, she pampers my daughters when they come in as well....finally, they enjoy going to the hair salon!  Highly recommend.

- Kathy D / Worcester, MA



Your stylists are the best!  They really understands my hair type and preferences, but always puts a fresh and updated spin on my needs- tons of compliments from everyone on my hair since I have been going to her.  The products they recommend have made my color and shine last forever.

- Grace Kelly / Holden, MA



I have been going to this salon since it opened. And I have been going to Christen since he was in Kelly square. I followed him to his new salon, and would follow him anywhere else he goes. I have never gotten more compliments on my hair since going to him, even from other stylists.


My hair was over-processed by my previous stylist. I am a natural blonde, and my last stylist bleached it to the point it was straw. He returned it to my natural color, and treated my hair to get it back to a healthy condition. My hair has never been softer, or full. My hair went from long, stringy, over bleached mess of straw to a full head of gorgeous blonde curls. I am always pleased to go and sit in his chair and have a nice chat too. He keeps me entertained the entire time I'm there. I would recommend this salon to anyone and everyone. 


ps. He has his own coupons that he sends out every month via email.

I have been going to Salon 647 for more than three years now.

Before finding the salon's secret weapon: Christian, I had been to many other salons in the Central Mass region.

I have been to the high-priced city "exclusive" salons as well as the small town folksy salons.  I was thirsty for a professional that would listen to me and do what I wanted.  Instead, time after time, I got self-serving, narcissistic, self-proclaimed "artists" that could care less about my limited time each morning to spend on grooming my hair. I was shown how "using a flat iron would give me the look I desired". I have no interest in purchasing a flat iron, not to mention using one.

Christian cuts and styles my hair in a manner that doesn't require special tools to look great.  The way he cuts/styles doesn't need the assistance of implements. It looks great every day with minimum work on my part. Wash, blow dry, and Label M products (sold exclusively at Salon 647) is all it takes!! 


I am extremely particular!!!  As a mother who works inside and outside of the home, I don't have much time to spend on myself. So, going to the salon to spend time doing something just for me is not only important; it is something that I treasure.

Christian not only suggested updates to my short hairstyle; he spent time listening to me.  His sensitivity to my needs was relaxing, reassuring and refreshing. He never pressured me to do anything-- he presented me with options that fit with my lifestyle.  His easy, confident manner gave me the confidence to try a modern update to my current style.


I have never been someone who makes appointments ahead of time because I never wanted to commit to going back.  Christian is the ONLY stylist that I have booked appointments far in advance.  Two cuts in advance, in fact!

Perhaps the best compliment I could pay would be the fact that I bring my teenaged children to Christian for their styling needs as well.  My daughter was empowered by Christian to try several new styles over the years.  One time she brought a magazine clipping to him for an idea.  He didn't just replicate the "celebrity hair style"; he adapted it to her type of hair and she honestly looked better than the celeb!  My daughter is hard to please.  She could not stop looking at herself in the mirror in the salon and all the way home in the visor mirror as well!  I swear, I have never seen her so happy with her hair.

I am so glad that I found 647 Salon.  I get compliments on my hair on a regular basis....that's a nice bonus as well.

Kaylin Reynolds has been my hair stylist for nearly 5years.

Of all the hair stylists/salons I have been to, Salon 647 is the absolute best.

Kaylin is a color expert and cuts my hair just the way i like all the time.

Plus, she beautiful person outside as well genuinely nice person.

Love her... Love going there.


Thanks Kaylin for making me look so beautiful!!! LOL
