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. ...

Moving up to ""Best of Philly"" 6/28/2006

In the short few years that this salon has been open it has constantly met and maintained the highest standard. It is a soothing and comforting place with little noise and disturbance while one is receiving the agreed upon treatment. The front desk is polite and efficient. The colorist Wyatt has raised the bar for all salons and stylists Michael and Mia are not only excellent in their craft, they are professional, friendly and always put the client at ease. One of my friends on leaving Pileggi on the Square said she was made to feel old, underappreciated and poorly put together. This would never happen at Thalia Salon. One is always made to feel beautiful whether they are or not. more

Never go anywhere else 5/24/2006

I am a habitual salon hopper, but I went to Salon Thalia today for the first time. Carolyn did an amazing job! She changed the shape, texture, color and overall quality of my hair. I have called all of my friends and told them they MUST go to Salon Thalia and see Carolyn. She is friendly, creative and a hair genius. I saw Memories to have my eyebrows waxed and they also turned out perfect. The room is very relaxing and I struggled to stay awake while she worked. From the time you walk in the door to the time you walk out, Salon Thalia is an experience that cannot be rivalled! I have never received so many compliments on my hair as I did today just walking down the street. Thank you Carolyn! Pros: relaxing , well worth the $$$, unrivalled more

you get what you pay for! 5/3/2006

I recently read a review of of salon thalia on city search, I was in search of a new hair salon. There stylists were all highly prased so I figured why not try, so I called to make an appointment, the desk girls were so helpful by the way, and they recomended John Peirce to take care of my locks. I was so impresed with how he sat with me for about 10 min. too discuse what I wanted to acheive with my hair, I never felt more comfortable with stylist. ""He gave me the best highlites I have ever had and the most stunning cut too""! I left there spending a littel more than my last place, but worth every penny. I highly recommend John and Salon thalia. So as the saying goes ""You get what you pay for""! Pros: great stylists, amazing space , great front desk more

If ever I move, I will cry 4/1/2006

I. LOVE. THIS. PLACE. Seriously, I will suffer hair and skin withdrawl if I ever move away from Philly. I've been coming here for a year, and when I walked in I was sure I was in for a very large bill, given how elegant and classy the salon is. Well I was surely shocked, because a haircut by the owner done carefully and with no rush was less than $100. Jaw dropping, really. The real gem of this place (aside from how incredibly courteous everyone is. . .no snobbery here) is their esthetician, Connie, who transformed my ravaged skin to makeup unnecessary skin in less than 6 months. I am a Dermaware and Kerastase product convert and you will be too once you come here. Pros: friendly staff, amazing pricing, expert product recom. more

Its better than my offerings in Manhattan 3/19/2006

I live in NYC, Im from Philly, I love this place. Whenever Im home visiting my family & friends (about 4-6 times per yr), I go make it a point to get my hair done here. LOVE THIS PLACE. If your looking for great service, atmosphere and phenomenal stylists, ck it out. I suggest Liz H! Shes the best. more

perfect fix for bad color job 3/17/2006

I was growing out bad and brassy highlights and my grey was coming in fast and furious right before the holidays. I needed a talented, creative colorist right away to add new, toned-down highlights and blend everything together. I called Salon Thalia because they were nearby and well-recommended, and I was given an appointment with Tiffany. She listened to my long and (I'm sure) confusing description of what I was after and came up with a thoughtful solution to my rather odd problem. She also won my confidence with her calm manner and detailed approach manner. Her work was fast and precise and the results were stunningly beautiful - natural, vibrant, and so well suited to my complexion. I've never had so many compliments on my hair before. I would recommend Tiffany to anyone. more

Super Experience 3/14/2006

I recently moved to Philadelphia and I admired a womens haircut and she recommended Michael at Salon Thalia. When I called to schedule an appointment Michael was already booked but the receptionist was so helpful with recommending another stylist. Tiffany gave me a beautiful, easy to manage haircut and I went back to get highlights as she suggested. Both experiences were wonderful. The atmosphere is very friendly and helpful. If your not sure where to go, you should really give this salon a try. Pros: Friendly, professional, great service more

Best Salon in Philadelphia 2/20/2006

As a New Yorker transplanted to Philadelphia I was nervous about finding a high-end salon that would compare to those in Manhattan. After 1 1/2 years of trying different salons, I finally found Salon Thalia and LIZ and am beyond happy! I have been seeing Liz for over 2 years now and she is the best stylist I have ever been to. I get compliments on my hair from strangers on the street and friends who now see Liz as well. Getting my hair done is an absolute treat - Liz is patient, has great ideas about my hair, but also listens to what I want. She also makes the experience extremely enjoyable - she is very friendly and always, always has a smile on her face. I would recommend Liz to anyone! more

Love my hairstylist! 1/11/2006

It took me years to find a hairstylist that I felt completely comfortable with and trusted completely to give me a new look every few months. I have been going to John Pierce at Salon Thalia for over 5 years now and have referred many friends. We all love him! He is one of the most talented hairstylists in Philadelphia. Pros: parking lot , full service salon, great staff more

The best place in town 1/10/2006

Michael is fabulous, but expect to pay top dollar for his services. I went in with amazon-length, limp hair and left looking like a celebrity. The salon also uses fantastic products. I recommend picking up a bottle of their anti-frizz stuff. Pros: professional, skillful Cons: EXPENSIVE more

Fabulous! 1/2/2006

If you want a fabulous salon experience, the words are 'Salon Thalia'! As soon as you enter you feel welcome from the warm and friendly staff. They are always eager to take your coat and make you feel at home. Wyatt gives a great shampoo because he will massage your scalp as he shampoos your hair. It is truly delightful. He will then get you a beverage of your choice. Michael is truly a gifted artist! From color, cuts to blow drys' and updos', he will create a master piece! Michael is the only one I allow to do my hair. more

Simply wonderful! 12/26/2005

Salon Thalia is a welcomed change in the landscape of the Philadelphia salon experience. The space is warm and charming which is a perfect fit for the caring, professional staff. Michael is my regular stylist and he is truly talented. My hair has never looked so great. Although the staff is stylish and hip, I never feel out of place when I arrive on my day off make-up-less and in comfy sweats. It by far the most relaxed yet competent salon I have ever been to. Pros: professional, warm, inviting more

A second-rate experience 12/14/2005

Salon Thalia is a second-rate salon. From the cold interior to the careless staff - I would definitely NOT recommend this place to anyone, especially for color. I had severe damage done to my hair by the careless slopping of mix-matched hues and over-processing while my ""colorist"" was busy on smoking breaks. No follow-up, not even to check their work- just hand you over for a blow dry and then on to the next. Lots and lots of attitude, to top it off. Definitely will not be going back to Salon Thalia. more

Low Maintenance Fantabulous! 12/6/2005

I am a person who rolls out of bed and off to work without a second look in the mirror. When I entered the workforce, it was time to find a stylist who could give me fabulous style without the hassle - and always look great! A friend recommended Carolyn. She really understood my low maintenance style, and cut my hair perfectly. I really can get out of the shower, blowdry, and be on my way looking like I just walked out of the salon. Carolyn has been my stylist for 2 years, and everytime I get a new style that always works for me! Pros: You Get What You Want, Friendly Atmosphere, Stylishly Inexpensive more

Worth the Drive from the Shore 12/1/2005

I am extremely particular when it comes to my hair with both cuts and color. I recently went to Jason because a friend recomended him. I drove from the shore for an appointment with him. He did a phenomenal job on both the cut and color and I feel like he was very receptive to my concerns no matter how annoying I was. Jason has earned my trust and my business and I highly recomend him. Pros: Fairly pirced, Good parking, Friendly atmosphere more

Natural Beauty 11/24/2005

I have been going to Carolyn for about three years now. Before Carolyn my hair was a wreck. I had permed and done at-home dye jobs that tortored my hair and took forever to grow out. After all of those messes I was hesitant to color my hair again, but I was desperate to get rid of the mousy brown color, but I was also afraid of looking too drastic and fake. Carolyn has been giving me a combo of low lights and highlights that look natural and the cut is very flattering. I receive numerous compliments about my cut and color. I TRUST Carolyn completely and recommend her to everyone I come across. I don't know what I would do without her, plus she is one of the sweetest people I know. Pros: Staff, Atmosphere, Location more

WORTH THE TRIP! 11/8/2005

Travel from Newark, Delaware to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania just for a haircut, highlight, and style? Most definitely, if your appointment is with Jason! I was in desperate need of a new stylist, and long overdue for a haircut, when a friend who lives in the Philadelphia area made the recommendation of Salon Thalia. I was hesitant about the commute, but decided to give it a try anyway. The minute I walked into the Salon I knew I had made the right decision. Jason greeted me with a welcoming smile and treated me as if I had been his client for years. Jason evaluated my hair, made some recommendations, and before I knew it, I was walking out of the salon with the best haircut I ever had. Thanks Jason! more

Carolyn for Color and Cuts 10/25/2005

I highly recommend Carolyn for all your hair needs. I just leave everything up to her and my hair comes out amazing everytime!! She turned my brassy highlights into beautiful blonde, and gave me a cut that gives my hair life again. I have received more compliments on my hair since seeing Carolyn then ever before! I cannot imagine anyone else touching my hair and would follow her anywhere! more

Magnificent Monday 10/25/2005

I never thought Mondays could be so pleasant until I met Jason. I was a walk-in for a blow dry, and WOW, what an awesome job he did. He was meticulous with everything he did; and what a perfectionist! I booked the following week for a cut and color with him. My advice: if you're looking for a great stylist, and not too bad on the eyes, ask for Jason on Mondays. more
