First of all, Marco is now at Society Hill Towers, and I am about to call him to make an appointment. His number is the same. Pros: The best haircut I have ever found Cons: Okay, it is expensive and I can't always afford to go there more

My new favorite salon 1/13/2007

Salon South is a very cozy and friendly place. When you walk in you're greeted by a friendly receptionist and Marco. The girl who did my color did an excellent job and Marco gave me a fabulous haircut, which isn't always so easy to come by when you have curly hair. Another girl in the salon was getting her hair straightened and it came out beautifully. I highly suggest trying this salon, especially for flattering hair color.The only possible drawback is that credit cards are not accepted (cash and checks are). Prices are on par with other high quality salons in the area. Pros: Great Service, Great Results Cons: No Credit Cards, Lack of Parking more

Worse place ever 12/15/2006

South Salon is one of the worse salon i've deal with. I asked Marco to give me highlights and hair color and he did an awful job. Trust me, you can't even see the highlights on my hair. Secondly, i wana to get the make up done for my party and lady (who works their part time) did my make up, which was extremely bad. She made me look like a horrible witch. Even though i didn't like the make up i still end up paying $50 for it. (ripped off) I don't know how and why these people can recommend South Salon, probably they have not seen any better salons yet. I am very unhappy of their service. Not recommended at all !! Pros: Friendly Staff, why not ofcourse they want business!! Cons: Extremely bad service. more


i have tried since i was in my 34 find a salon..a hairdresser that did what you asked them to do and do it right! i met marc at chipper clipper..where he once worked, and i could not believe my haircut and color when i left ! i recommended everyone i knew to him to experience a haircut that made you feel ""the absolute best "" and the aveda products were just an add on. i do go back and forth from marc only because it is a little hard on my budget with 3 boys , but it is definitely worth every penny ! anyone going to a wedding, reunion, party, must have him do your hair ! trust me, you will look like you need to be on the red carpet ! and he has the best personality . loove him ! Pros: service, warm homey feeling, salon smells soo relaxing. Cons: hmmm..none more

Amazing Experience 7/12/2006

Who knew that when walking into Salon South, you were in the presence of greatness. I speak of Marcos, of course. If great customer service and good conversation are not enough, you will be floored by the superb haricuts and professional highlights. The salon also has a great atmosphere. I recenty visited Salon South and was very nervous about getting a new style and new highlights. Marcos took the time to listen and make recommendations. He was right. I walked out of Salon South feeling hot, hot, hot. I urge anyone who reads this to look no further and go to Salon South for an amazing experience. more

Best anywhere for women and men!! 4/3/2006

A client for 13 years, I can tell you Marco is the very best! I have curly hair and it takes a very special and talented stylist to handle it. I would never let anyone else touch my hair and I travel to Marco from NE Philly. He has personalized my color and highlights to compliment my skin and dare I say age; and I always get compliments. Marco and his staff are gracious and friendly and kind. The salon itself has a pleasent sent and style; never the smell of chemicals and always clean. You are SPECIAL at Salon South! Pros: easy parking, near shopping, near good restaurants Cons: none, none, none more

Great, but a bit pricey! 8/19/2005

I don't know why this place has ""low prices"" as one of its descriptors. I received a fabulous cut and style (from Marco), but was a bit floored when the total (along with a small bottle of smoothing gel that he recommended) came to over $80! It was a great haircut, but I don't know if I can afford this place again. Pros: Friendly, Same-day appointments Cons: Expensive more

Best Salon in the City Bar None! 6/29/2005

I have been a client of Salon South for approximately 3 months and I can't believe it took me so long to find them! I have extremely curly hair and was terrified of going to salons.. All they want to do is cut, cut, cut! Not a Salon South! Marco is a genius and I always leave looking and feeling absolutely fabulous! They listen to you and make you feel like part of the family. Definitely the proverbial needle in the haystack! Thank you Marco and Gang for being miracle workers! You are the best! Pros: Reasonable, Fabulous, Enchanting more

Great place with great people! 5/10/2005

Salon South is staffed with great people who give great, professional service. The staff is not afraid to help you out when you need a second opinion about a new hair style or just want to know the right product to use to get your hair just right. Marc does a fantastic job with men's styles and is always ""up on"" the newest styles and trends. I would recommend this salon to anyone. My partner and I have been coming here for the past year and a half after discovering it on Citysearch. You should go and give them a try you wont be disappointed. Pros: Friendly staff, No attitude more

escape from the mundane....... 4/24/2005

if owner (Marco) of salon south's personality doesn't wow you enough, then his work surely will. he aims to please.........and always does! i have never walked out of that salon dissatisfied. i love relaxing in the comfortable salon, taking in all of the beauty (including the huge marilyn monroe picture and the gorgeous women coming in and out of there). this salon does not reek of harsh chemicals. the best coffee is always offered as well! Pros: hours, atmosphere, never disappointed Cons: no credit cards, parking can be rough more

Great Guy Cuts 4/24/2005

Service with a smile. i always love the mood of my barber, marc. he never disappoints me with his work or his wit. i would feel confident to recommend him to anyone at all. i think it would be great if there were a customer referral program though. that would help keep loyal customers from being broke as well as introducing new customers into the salon. maybe for every new customer you receive a discount, or a product!!!!!!!!!!! Pros: Cuts, Owner's Personality, Cleanliness Cons: No Credit Cards more

User review by tigrlilj 4/24/2005

I have been getting my hair colored, cut and styled at Salon South since it has opened. The friendly atmosphere is refreshing. I always walk out of that salon looking and feeling like a million bucks. I would confidently recommend ANYONE there. I love that the Salon is located close to me, but if it moved I would travel anywhere to continue being a client. Pros: Cutting Edge Styles, Fairly Priced, Best Quality Products more

Salon South Review 4/19/2005

I have been a client for 15 years of the owner Marco. He is the best in the city. I drive 40 miles just to get a cut. more

User review by valerie220 4/17/2005

Finding a great salon is like finding a favorite restaurant, you want everyone to experience it. Marco and his staff take the stress out of hair. They get to know their clients on a personal level and make style and color suggestions based on your personality and lifestyle. The quality of product and customer service is superb. Salon South is like an addiction, once you try them, no one else compares. more

Best highlights 4/17/2005

First of all, Salon South is not one of those over-priced snooty places. The people working there are really friendly,and tehy do their best to accommodate your rvery wish. Especially Gerri, who sits at the front, is a darling. Second, I love getting highlights and I have tried quite a few places over the years but Salon South beats them all. Marco is the best with color. He gave me really fine highlights, which was exactly what I has asked for. I love my new color. I would definitely recommend Salon South for those who want highlights. more
