Editorial review from Citysearch 3/28/2014

I have been a customer of Michael's for over 27 years. We moved to Charleston, South Carolina 18 years ago. I tried and tried to find a salon that understood color. Repeatedly I would end up back in Michael's chair having him fix the color and correct the cut. It never seems to amaze me when I return to Charleston how people continuously ask me who does my cut and color!!\r It does not stop there....Nicoletta makes everyone feel warm and welcome. The moment you ] make your appointment to the time you arrive. Nicoletta always has a warm smile and works so hard to get the appointment that meets my crazy schedule flying and returning in the same day. She is amazing!!!! \r Everyone that works at Thunder is very engaging and truly professional. They have customers that just pop their head in to say ""hello"" - to the clients that have been coming there since they were young and now come in with their families for their salon appointments. \r Not only does my hair look great - It is great pleasure for me to be part of Thunder's family! \r Kudos to Michael and his entire staff! \r \r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/11/2013

I only started getting compliments on my hair when I started going to Christa. I had always thought of my hair as frizzy and unruly and beyond help but Christa has proved otherwise. People are always surprised when I tell them I get highlights because it looks so natural and is, obviously, expertly done. Never going to anyone else! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/21/2012

I absolutely love Christa @ Thunder. She's very attentive and gives 100% of her attention when you sit in her chair. My hair never looked so good since I've been going to her. I highly recommend her!!! more

I love Christa @ Thunder! She styled my hair for my graduation portraits and I was so happy with the result. I am super picky about my hair, but I completely trust Christa. She listens to my requests and I never leave the salon unhappy. I constantly get compliments on my highlights also! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/18/2012

Christa is the BEST!!! I get compliments all the time about the quality of my cut and color. I jumped from salon to salon for years never finding someone I trusted, but now that I found Christa, I will never switch! more

Marie Anne is extraordinary!! 4/27/2012

My teenage daughter recently box dyed & stripped her beautiful hair to bright orange. I use John Barret in Manhattan but knew I had to find a Philadelphia salon, so much closer to the shore. Allure recommended Thunder,Michael answered & got us in immediately & I am astonished by the magic Marie Anne worked!! She spent hours, great attention to detail, to redo my daughter's hair & I still am amazed at the transformation. more

Stephen Gets It Perfect Every Time 11/1/2011

Thunder is a great place. Everyone is very professional and friendly. Stephen is a master at both color and cutting. You can know with absolute certainty that your hair will be perfect every time. I have very curly hair -- Stephen knows how to cut it and highlight it. But I have watched him cut straight hair into exacting haircuts too. He is also very knowledgeable about the impacts of age, illness, chemo, and anethesia on hair. When consistency and trust mean a lot to you as well as looking your very best - see Stephen. more

Bryce!!! 10/18/2011

Went to Bryce about a month ago, based on the reviews I read here on citysearch. So glad I did. He was awesome! He discussed many different color options with me - I'm in my early 30s but have a lot of gray to hide, and two small children making it hard to find time to get to the salon very often. He put beautiful highlights and lowlights in that he said would camoflauge the gray as it grows out. It's been over a month and what he said is true. You can barely see the regrowth. I am so very happy and can't wait for my next appointment. He is super easy to talk to and makes you feel right at home. The haircut was perfect too - very easy for me to style and is growing out nicely. I can't recommend him enough! more

B R Y C E......... 3/23/2011

I was referred to Bryce @ Thunder through a friend and she swears by him and I am so glad I listened to her. Bryce welcomed me to the salon, sat me down to chat and started picking my brain, all the while running his fingers thru my hair... getting a feel for what he was about to do. He knew instantly what I wanted even before I did!!! Bryce colored my hair, did beautiful highlights, gave me a phenomenal cut and I absolutely love it and HIM!!!! He was so pleasant, fun and just genuinely a super nice guy. The salon was spotless and very frieindly. I can honestly say that my experience at Thunder was awesome. I have never left a salon and felt so calm, relaxed, pleased, and most of all..... BEAUTIFUL!! Thank you Bryce. You will definitely be seeing more of me and I have already spread the word to my friends. more

Bryce 3/21/2011

All the other blondes out there may understand the struggles I went through until I found BRYCE. I have been highlighting my hair since age 15 and have had more hair stylists then you can imagine. I have experienced it all (the chunky highlights, the awful brassy highlights that do not look natural, the roots that show up too early because the highlights were not done close enough) at all the so called ?best salons? in Atlanta, NYC, Philadelphia?.Then I met BRYCE and my constant anxiety surrounding my hair appointments was a distant memory. Basically, Bryce UNDERSTANDS BLONDE HAIR. He takes the time to listen to what I want, but also has excellent professional expertise to give me suggestions on what will look the best and when its time to switch it up, go brighter, add some lowlights. He makes people believe that I am actually still a natural blonde and I am constantly being complemented on my hair. I really wouldn?t trust anyone else with my hair. It was absolutely no question that I would follow Bryce from Toppers to Thunder, but it was just an added bonus that everyone at Thunder is really friendly and awesome and the salon has a great relaxing atmosphere. So, if you are a blonde out there or anyone in need of some highlights definitely go see Bryce and you will be very happy!. (Just don?t steal my appointment?) more

Serendipity!!! 3/19/2011

I moved to Philadelphia a few months ago, and was still looking for my permanent, trusted hairstylist here. That search is now over: a series of comical and fateful events led me to Bryce at Thunder Salon, from whom I just received the most amazing blond highlights and haircut of my life. Bryce read me like a book - somehow he knew what I wanted better than I did. My whole experience at Thunder was perfect. The salon itself is sleek and clean, modern but not over-the-top. The entire staff is friendly and down-to-earth. There is no sense of competition and pretense, like you often experience in other salons - the stylists compliment each others' skilled work and are chatty without being gossipy. Bryce was so much fun to work with that I was disappointed when my hair was done and had to leave (although I was anything BUT disappointed with my new look - AMAZING!) Bryce, I will be back again and again and again - I am so thrilled to have found you!!! more

Welcome Bryce! 3/10/2011

Recently, I went to Thunder for a haircut from their newest stylist, Bryce. I followed Bryce from across the street at Topper?s Spa, where he has been cutting my hair for the past year-and-a-half. He fits in quite well with his new surroundings and my first experience at Thunder was warm and welcoming. I am a child of the 70s and for the longest time, I attempted to hold onto longer, shaggy locks. Bryce encouraged me to enter the 21st century by moving me toward the shorter, more contemporary cut that I have today. I have received countless compliments since I started going to Bryce and I?m thrilled that he worked with me to create a new look that was a hit among friends and family. In addition to his skill with clippers and scissors, he is an adept conversationalist with an affable personality. It?s always fun to spend a half hour in the chair with Bryce. Thunder, with its larger-than-life movie icon photos, is the perfect setting. more

Best Stylist Ever!!! 3/6/2011

I have to say, I've chosen Thurnder because my favorite stylist ever - BRYCE - chose this salon to work with. I've been with Bryce for over a year now and can't imagine what I did before him. He's an excellent stylist and colorist, which is important since I'm notorious for changing the color of my highlights each month. Bryce has managed to find the balance between listening to me and my needs and wants, while sharing his own professional experience to ensure that my cut and color complement me 100%! He actually started at a different salon which will remain unnamed (but is located directly across from Thunder) and when he left, there was no question that I was going to follow him. I get compliments on my hair and color all the time...and its all because Bryce does an amazing job! He makes the cut and color process fun and exciting!!! more

MICHAEL 1/20/2011

I love Thunder Hair Salon . Located on 19 th Street in Philly Michael does my hair and from day one he has been perfect. His coloring ( highlites, lo lites, touch ups) are so natural and beautiful. He cuts hair with such style and precision it's amazing. I have never had a cut that is so easy to do and look great everydayt. Bravo . Thanks to the great staff, Maria, Nicolette , Lucia and everyone. more

LOUIS 3/15/2010

Louis is the best! Louis has been doing my color for years. I have referred many friends to him and they have all been thrilled with the results. Recently, he gave me the best haircut! I continue to get compliments from everyone. A good cut does make a huge difference! Pros: Be on time Cons: Be on time more

Outstanding Color and Cut 11/19/2009

Michael is a master with color. Every week someone asks me where I get my hair done because they love the color, and so do I. I drive almost 2 hours to get to this salon and Michael's skilled hands. I wear my hair chin length and in layers so a perfect cut is crucial. Michael spends at least 30 min. just on my cut. Even on a windy day, just a little fluff with my fingers, sends every hair back in place. He's the best!! more


Daneen was the best. I love my hair cut. more
