So, I wrote a review about Maria from Salon Thalia about a month ago, she gave me foils and what she called a toner and then finished with a hair cut. Before leaving the salon we ...


My review is a letter I wrote to Michael, who has been cutting and highlighting my hair for 4 years. Up until about 10 months ago, I was extremely happy with Michael's haircuts. ...

Only Place I Go 4/30/2010

i have been going to salon thalia for about a year now and i love it... Maria is the best. I completely trust her with my hair. i started out just getting cuts until i destroyed my hair with box dye i went light brown to red to dark chocolate in one month... i called up she found the time to fit me in and brought my hair from dark chocolate to med brown. she made it look completely natural. she also suggested that my hair needed to be cut cuz of my severe dead ends. but because i told her i love my long hair she offered only to cut so much at a time.. as a matter of fact i got a hair appt tomorrow :) Pros: everything Cons: nothing more

Great service. Horrible haircut 4/29/2010

I went there a while ago. Reading all this good reviews online. I admit that they had a great service. Very Professional. It looked nice and all.. but the haircut that i got was terrible. i went back to my hold hair saloon and fixed it after two days. They have a great management. and i know that they are going to write after this review. That i could have gone back and they would fix it for me. But i dont care. I wasted so much money. for nothing... If you like people who lick your A** for money. this is the place to go. But dont expect results ... And i just want to add that i now think that all this other reviews are fake. If you check the usernames. they all have done like only 1 review. and that is only for this salon. no any other stuff. Its clear that the owners or managers create accounts just to write reviews in here. Correct me if im wrong. Pros: They kiss your .... on both cheeks Cons: Overpriced... Terrible haircut more

Amazing salon! 1/7/2010

Last evening I had my first appointment at Salon Thalia with Katie for a full highlight and cut. Let me begin by saying she was so sweet and LISTENED to me- I have never had any stylist take as much time to make sure she understood what I wanted color-wise, and took her time cutting and styling my hair (for ex. she put the dryer down a few times to snip at a few pieces to make sure they were right). I am thrilled with the results and had a great first experience, you bet I am telling everyone about this place! Pros: Great service, friendly staff, they listen to their clients more

Loved my Facial with Alissa 12/27/2009

I feel like everyone should know about the best kept secret in Philly...Alissa at Salon Thalia is awesome! I had a facial last week and it was one of the best I ever had. I thought that my last esthetician was great but after seeing Alissa I dont think Ill ever go back to her!! Not only does my skin look fantastic but she gave me a lot of advise on home care without being too pushy and the hand and arm massage was so relaxing. You can tell she loves what she does and really has a great knowledge about skin care. Definitely going to be a regular facial client at Salon Thalia! more

schedule now an appointment with travis! 12/17/2009

i moved to philadelphia a few years ago and only found travis five months ago. first stylist that could do a great cut AND great color. such a find. i had been to two other salons very close to thalia and felt frustrated every month - sometimes good color, sometimes good cut but never both good. not only is travis very talented but he's fun to visit and laugh with - makes the time fly, and i feel so great when i leave looking the way i want to look :). Pros: exceptional cuts AND color Cons: can't think of one - great, friendly staff - nice ambiance more

Fantastic salon and stylist: Travis 12/8/2009

I have been meaning to write this review for over a month now - I visited Salon Thalia on October 24th and got a cut from Travis. Pros: Good ambiance, Central location, Talented Stylists Cons: Price (but I think it's generally a good value) more

Highly recommended 11/21/2009

I decided to try Salon Thalia after moving into the city, based on my gf's recommendation. As a newbee to the salon, I was slightly unsure what to expect. But Travis met and went beyond my expectations. He gave me probably the best haircut of my life. He is very well trained and extremely personable. I well definitely be returning to this salon, and recommending Travis to many of my friends. Pros: Great service and friendly staff Cons: Little pricey more

Best Wax - See Alissa! 11/17/2009

I've been a client of Alissa's for several years and followed her from Toppers to Salon Thalia. I will follow her wherever she goes! She's a doll, number one. Always sweet, always makes me feel like an old friend coming to greet me (granted an old friend who's going to rip a bunch of hair off me!) and her technique is very clean and relatively painless. I just won't go to anyone else. I'll go hairy before I stray from Alissa. Also, her facials are sublime! My skin never looks as good as it does after a visit to her. Like the new salon a lot too, a much nicer place to see my favorite girl than outdated Toppers. more

Skin is noticabley improved. 11/10/2009

Had a facial here a few weeks ago with Allison? I can't remember her name which is terrible but it started with an A. I was waiting to post a review til some time had passed cos with me facials tend to ""do their magic"" a few weeks later. Well, my skin is noticeably improved. I started using a new regimen she had prescribed for me at home which seems to be helping also. This was my first time here at thalia so I can't say anything for the salon part but the facial area was like a hidden gem. I had no idea they even had this part of the salon, you wouldn't be able to tell just from walking by. Its a whole seperate area with curtains and a relaxing atmosephere. I don't get facials often but when I do I will be back here. 5 stars! Pros: my skin Cons: not really more

Great facial! 11/9/2009

Had a facial with Alissa on Saturday as part of a promotion (it was half off). Best facial I've had in years. it was really busy in the salon when I came in so I was worried that it wouldn't be relaxing in the room but I was wrong. She put me at ease right away and the whole facal was so relaxing, I almost fell asleep! My skin is still looking great, not red like after some facials, just looks really clean and glowing. I think I will definitely be back for another facial in a few weeks. Overall, salon was clean, staff friendly. I might go back and try their hair services too. Pros: Facial more

MARIA'S the Best 11/7/2009

maria always does a perfect color and cut!! ive seen her for the last 3 yrs and im Always Happy!! Pros: EVERYTHING Cons: NOTHING more

Great Cut, no attitude 11/4/2009

I've been to a lot of hairdressers over the years and while some of them seem to get it right, it never lasts and sure enough after the third or fourth trip, my hair is a mess again. After searching all over, I found Maria at Thalia and I am set! She always listens to what I want, offers great advice on how to change it up (if I want) and I always leave looking great! Even better, my hair still looks great weeks after a cut. Pros: great hair, clean salon, friendly staff more

Best wax 10/22/2009

I have found my new place! Had a bikini wax with Alyssa here, was great! I mean, as far as a wax can be great it was great. Almost painless, definetly quick and clean and she was really nice and made me feel comfortable. Plus she offered me a discount for when I come back for a facial which I will probably do. Didn't see the whole salon but overall it was clean, staff was friendly, I will be back! Pros: Alyssa Cons: no cash back more

I booked a facial at Thalia and got Alissa who was great! She made me feel very relaxed and was very detailed and knowledgable. She reccomended a Clarifying Facial which helped clear up my skin wright away. I asked her a lot of questions about my skin and she was happy to offer a her advise. I will defintily rebook in a few weeks with Alissa again. My skin is glowing and my acne cleared up immediately! more

katie gave me great bangs!! 9/10/2009

I went to Salon Thalia for the first time the other day. Katie was my stylist and she did an amazing job! She worked with me to figure out the perfect cut- one that combined my personal style with the most flattering shape and length for me. I will definitely go back to Katie & would recommend her to anyone. more

Great Cut on Short Notice 9/5/2009

I scheduled a last minute appointment with Katie. I was surprised to see the huge extent of the of salon, but it's easy to see why this place is so popular! My stylist did a great job combining what I knew I wanted and her ideas for what would work well in my hair, I've gotten nothing but compliments for the job she did! I have been recommending this salon to everyone. Thanks for the time, attention and great haircut! more

Great Facial 9/1/2009

I recently had a facial with Alissa at Salon Thalia and I highly recommend her! There was a great scalp massage at the end that I would love to come back for and book just that if I could! She was gentle with extractions, knowledgeable about skin and gave me some great tips about at-home care. It's been a little over a week and I've already seen an improvement in my skin. more


Travis has been my stylist for 6 years in Scottsdale AZ, I have never had a bad experience! He always is considerate of what you would like - his training and talent is amazing. Pros: Stylist Extrordinare more

Great cut 8/27/2009

Ask for Travis. He asked great questions and made sure to listen to what I wanted (or more importantly, didn't want). He was creative but stuck with a style that works for me. Also, he is very complimentary and didn't make me feel guilty for abusing my hair with a flat iron. It was an all around great experience and i will definitely be going back! Pros: Beautiful Salon, Staff, Everything more

Ask for Travis 7/23/2009

I'm new in town from NYC and was looking for a cool, urban salon near the Old City area. A couple people I've met recommended what they thought to be reliable choices, and after checking out a few I decided to go with Salon Thalia, right off of Washington Square. The space is modern and sleek, and the staff was very professional and accommodating. Now I'm the kind of person who doesn't like the 'fanfare' associated with going into a new salon and meeting a new hairdresser (I find that it can be like going on an interview), but everyone from the front desk to the assistants to the stylist that cut my hair made me feel completely at ease. Travis is a new stylist from Scottsdale and seems to really know what he's doing; my color was spot-on and I feel like my cut made me look ten years younger. I also met one of the owners (whose name was Michael, I think) and he took time out to introduce himself and make me feel further at home (a point I've always liked when going to my old West Village NYC spot). Bottom line - I never thought I'd find a new salon so fast that made me feel the way my old salon and stylist did, but from now on I'll be asking for Travis at Thalia. Keep up the good work. Pros: Urban feel, great stylists, awesome space Cons: Parking - but isn't that ubiquitous for Center City? more
