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. ...

Memories is the best! 6/10/2008

Memories is the best if you want a Brazilian Bikini Wax, eyebrow wax, etc. Pros: EVerything about this place is a pro! Cons: Hard to get an appointment in if its an emergency, lol. more

Incredible experience 5/29/2008

This salon is a great place. It provides incredible services yet still never losing the personal touch. Michael has been my stylist 3 years and I would not trust my hair to anyone else. He has taken me from blonde to brunette and then back to blonde again without any damage, and always accompanied by fantastic cuts. Highly Recommended!! Pros: warm atmosphere, expert color/cuts more

Best color and cut 5/6/2008

I?ve been coming here a few years now and seeing Ashley. She is definitely my favorite hairdresser I?ve had over the years. She gives advice and feedback on things I?m considering, but doesn?t push her own agenda. I get highlights done, but am pretty low maintenance about hair, and don?t have the time or money to get touched up as often as recommended. She works hard to give me great-looking highlights that can grow out without being too obvious and looks very natural (better than natural!). She?s also never made me feel bad about my infrequent visits, which I?ve had happen at other high-end salons before. It is a splurge for me in terms of price (usually $200 for color and cut) but it?s certainly comparable to other salons, and I only have to go a few times a year because of the great job Ashley does. The salon itself is also a nice setting, big sunny room, everyone has always been friendly at front desk, etc. more

Best salon in the city! 4/24/2008

This is one of the nicest salons in the city. Its absolutely beautiful and very clean throughout. I saw Carolyn who did a fantastic job and gave me a beautiful haircut - very fresh looking and something that really suits my face. I never would have thought to have it cut this way so I'm glad she was able to think of that. The whole staff was really very nice and helpful. I will definitely be back! Pros: Best front desk in center city - so nice! Cons: a wee bit pricey - but worth it more

This is the ultimate luxury salon in the city. 4/15/2008

I've been here 3 times to get my hair cut and i've always gotten compliments on my hair-dos by family, friends, and strangers on the street! At first it is quite intimating b/c the cosmetics of the salon seem to only cater to ""high-end clients"", but the staff makes you feel comfortable. Also, when I first decided to check this salon out, i was nervous that they wouldn't know how to cut my textured hair (asian), but i come to realize they truly are professionals and have training and experience with all hair types. Pros: Professional skilled staff Cons: Pricey more

Exceptional, Affordable, Very Personal Care - Blew Me Away! 4/11/2008

The people here treated me with warmth like I was already a long-time client. Come appointment time, I walked into the most beautiful salon I've ever seen. I worked with a junior stylist, Carolyn, who answered question after question, gave me cost- and time-effective tips and taught me what good hair care and smart styling was all about. I kept my length despite split ends as she showed me exactly the care I needed. Pros: Informative, Personalized, Relaxing Cons: A bit pricey, but do-able with budgeting. more

Love Salon Thalia 4/2/2008

Just wanted to say how happy I am with this salon. It's clean, friendly, trendy without being obnoxtious and I always feel like a million bucks when I walk out of there. Now that they have a nail person, I can get my nails done here too plus they have really cute stuff for sale up front, like shirts and hair things. I see Carolyn for my hair, Memories for waxing but I think that everyone is probably really good there. more

Setting the record straight! 3/30/2008

In response to the previous review, were you having a bad day? PMS maybe? Or are you just not happy with yourself??? I have been going to Michael and Salon Thalia for the past 4 years, and I have never experienced anything but the best from each and every staff member. I came to Michael after a stylist from another salon ""botched"" my hair beyond repair, or so I thought. Michael was a miracle worker who not only fixed the horrible cut and color job, but made me look amazing! And as for your comment about ""old biddies"", I am a thirty-something young professional working in sales where my appearance is important to me. I also am a past professional make up artist who has worked with ""A"" list stars on movies and music videos who likes to stay on the cutting edge of fashion and style. Michael is always willing to listen to what I want and always creates the trendy and sophisticated look I ask for! If you are looking for a salon that keeps your look up with the latest hot styles, and stylists that have been trained by experts from around the world, I would highly recommend you visit Salon Thalia Pros: Friendly, great atmosphere (no chemical smells), knowledgeable stylists more

Wonderful 3/29/2008

I have been seeing Ashley for three years now for highlights and have always been happy leaving the salon. She does a wonderful job, is always willing to spend extra time to alter anything, and is fun to be around. The salon itself is beautiful. I have absolutely no negatives about this salon at all and think that it would be a mistake to go anywhere else. Pros: Haircuts and coloring Cons: Parking? There really isn't one more

Ugh!!! another overpriced stylist!!! 3/27/2008

This salon is nice, the staff is freindly, but michael needs to stop cutting hair. Or at least just stop taking new clients and just work on the old biddies that are happy with the same old outdated hair. I went to him for the first time and he didnt listen to a word i said and instead gave me some generic layered cut. how boring. oh and thanks for cutting my bangs straigt across without asking, i look like i am five. Pros: Nothing really. Cons: everything. more

AMAZING! 3/5/2008

Carter, one of the hairstylists at Salon Thalia, gave me the best hair cut in my life! I don't have a lot of time to deal with my hair and I, therefore, like keeping it short. However, it always ends up poofing if it's not cut right. I walked in to Salon Thalia for the first time, asking Carter to cut my hair to around chin length with the only criteria that it won't poof. After that, I left it to him to decide what would work best and look best. I was not disappointed. He really took the time to make sure to thin out my hair by layering it properly and create a simple style with a slightly unique flare (bob-like but with an off-center part, some asymmetry, and layering/lengths that give it some character). I was so thrilled when I saw what he did that I left the salon feeling more confident than I have in a long time. When my husband saw me, his jaw dropped. more

Juaquin and Salon Thalia are amazing!!! 2/13/2008

I just moved to Philly a month ago, and I have been pouring over salon reviews for weeks. Salon Thalia had amazing reviews and was voted one of the top salons in the city. Well, during a ""I hate my hair and it needs to be changed ASAP"" moment today, I called up Salon Thalia at 3:30 in the afternoon in hopes of getting squeezed in for a color. The oh-so-sweet girl that answered the phone fixed me up w/ an appointment w/ Juaquin at 4:00 the same day. The place is perfect....everyone there was as nice as they could be....and Juaquin was amazing! He was super sweet. He completely listened to what I wanted and added some ideas of his own. And he is great at what he does! This is the best color that I have had in a long, long time. It's perfect! Thank you so much Salon Thalia for squeezing me in and being so nice! And most importantly, thank you so much Juaquin for an amazing color!!! For those of you reading this review, I will also add that this was also the most expensive salon that I have ever been to. However, in my opinion, this color was worth every penny. So, if you're willing to spend the money on awesome hair, this is definitely the place to go! Ask for Juaquin! Pros: great location, great staff, great atmosphere, great hair! Cons: very pricey....but worth it more

Nice salon 2/3/2008

Thanks so much for the great work. This is a really nice salon with very talented people! My husband and kids go now too! more

Fantastic Haircut 1/30/2008

I am brand new to Philadelphia and I needed to find a salon. I found Salon Thalia on citysearch and decided to check it out for myself after reading the reviews. I was especially nervous about going to a salon because even though I was in serious need of a haircut, I am getting married in April and I was nervous about my hair being ok for the wedding. But as I said, I was in serious need of a haircut and I felt confident about this salon after checking out the webiste and the reviews. more

Carolyn and Cindy! 1/8/2008

I was recently referred to Carolyn by a friend of mine and I'm so happy I gave her a try! I had been box-dyeing my hair for years, which I know is terrible but it always looked good until I got carried away and basically ruined it. Carolyn really did fix my hair and bring it back to a beautiful color without making me feel bad about doing it to myself and without charging me an arm and a leg for it. She also cut into my layers, making my hair feel lighter and look prettier than it has in a long time. Then, I got the best manicure ever from Cindy! She was quick, meticulous and does the best polish application! Everything was so nice about my experience here, I can't wait to go back! Plus, they carry all the best products - Kerastase, Bumble and Bumble and Shu Uemura which I couldn't find anywhere else. Pros: Everything! Cons: none come to mind more

Coolest Manicure and Pedicure in town! 1/8/2008

Go see Cindy for manicures and pedicures here! I have been getting my nails done since I was a little kid and I can honestly say, she is the best! She is incredibly thorough and gets my feet looking and feeling beautiful (and believe me, they are not starting off that way at all)! Also, she does the most amazing nail designs - everything from little intricate flowers to skulls! My friends thought I had put little skull stickers on my nails - that's how detailed they were. Its like she's literally painting masterpieces on your nails. And to top it all off, she rubbed my neck and back (no charge!) while my nails were drying! Cindy is the best in the city and her prices are etremely reasonable. Pros: Cindy more

Waxing! ! None compare to Memories! 12/20/2007

I have never placed a review of anything on the internet, but this one is definitely warranted. I have been going to Memories for brazilian waxing for months and she is the best. I have been to at least four other spas in this city and others in the past and NONE compare, both in terms of minimizing pain and results. (If you are only getting eyebrows done, you won't even feel a thing!). She is so easy going and friendly -- great for first timers who are nervous. Pros: Waxing, Haircuts more

Not Happy 11/26/2007

My wife did not say anything when she was their at the salon but when she got home she was so unset with how her hair turned out. She went their because her old stylist at her other salon had left. Now she is going back to her old salon and hoping they can fix what happened. more

Awesome - Thank you, Wyatt! 11/11/2007

LOVE, LOVE the salon and Wyatt is absolutely awesome. I am compelled to write this review only because after being with the same stylist for seven years who is three hours away, I was referred to Wyatt and now, will no longer be making the drive to my other stylist. From the friendliness of all at the salon to Wyatt's amazing color/cut - I have absolutely NO complaints. And to think, I almost cancelled this appointment. Wyatt's skills/technique are fabulous and I felt incredibly comfortable with him. Actually, shortly after I sat down and talked about my hair with him, I really had no fear of Wyatt handling my hair. He completely paid attention to detail with regard to both the cut and highlights (fantastic placement!!) To my surprise, Wyatt truly met and exceeded my expectations. And, he's got a great sense of humor to boot - can't beat that! I couldn't have anticipated a better first experience, especially considering I was the last person in the salon on a Saturday evening and DIDN'T feel like he was rushing to get me out the door. more

Salon Thalia is still Perfect 11/8/2007

I've been going to Salon Thalia for over a year now and I am still more than pleased in the service and attention I get. I usually see Wyatt but there was a while where he was out due to injury and I saw both Carter (who was great but sadly moved away!) and Tiffany who also was fantastic. On top of that, Danielle, the receptionist is always sweet and willing to work me in. In fact, I just called for an appointment tomorrow and she happily got me in! I am always happy with both my cuts and color and and I never feel pressured into anything there. The vibe is so relaxed and everyone is very genuine that would probably have to pay me to go somewhere else. I highly recommend Salon Thalia! Pros: Wonderful, Friendly Staff more
