Ryan Foster Inc is the best hair salon in Philadelphia hands down! Essence says so, Philly Hot list say so, Rolling Out Magazine says so and so do I. All of their stylist are professional, timely and full of creative juices. You never have to know what you want, just make an appointment and sit in the chair. I felt like I was on the Jettson's and sat in one of those instant makeover machines. Anika Thompson is the owner and she is the most pleasant and informative stylist I have ever met. She educated me on all of my hair issues and gave me the confidence I needed to wear my natural hair without relaxer. The one thing I learned that stood out the most was, my natural hair could be soft and silky straight one week with her product Str8 Away Sufle (SAS) and curly the next with her product 10Dril. Anika created a natural product line called ALTernative and is the best product line I have ever tried. She puts every other line to shame with the results and to my disbelief I was able to recreate the same finish at home once I bought the line. The salon services are worth every penny you spend, but I must let you know if you sit in Anika's chair the prices are a tad bit higher (but I would never complain) and you will have her undivided attention the entire visit. I love my new salon and I would suggest that if you are in the area, please make sure you visit this wonderful salon at 1517 W Girard Ave Philadelphia Pa 19130 (215)769-0118. Its clean, beautiful and full of character! I love love love, Thank You Anika for my new relationship with my hair, I Love It.
