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. ...

LOVE MY HAIR !!!!!!!!! 10/24/2005

I recently moved to philadelphia and had hard time trying to find a hair salon or stylist that would listen to what I want. I found John Pearce on city search at Salon Thalia and figured why not try him, wow! John Pearce is amazing, he sat with me and listened to what I liked and disliked about my hair . John created a masterpeice, the color was perfect and the hair cut is the best I've had in years, I can even recreate what he did with the brush and dryer. Thanks to John Pearce I have never felt so great about myself!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!! more

New York Minute 10/23/2005

With two days left before my business trip to montreal, i needed a haircut. Instead of getting a $10 haircut I went with the recomendation of a friend. I was greeted with open arms and a warm smile. Not only was the the atmosphere pleasant, but Mia gave me a better haircut that Bruno ( my barber ). Now after my business meeting I have returned twice, and recomended the salon to four of my friends. THANK YOU MIA !!!!! Pros: Mia, Gracious staff, Clean enviorment more

Keep coming back and referring others... 10/18/2005

I have been a client of John Pierce's for the past six years. I have never felt so comfortable with a hair stylist before; especially, being a guy that used to go to the $10 a cut neighborhood barber shops. I have referred everyone from my girlfriends, family and close friends to him and eveytime they express their thanks for hooking them up with him. Overall the entire staff does a great job especially Jason and Wyatt assisting with what needs you may have. I will continue to go Thalia and John Pierce for as long as I live in Philadelphia. more

Mia was great !!!! 10/16/2005

Went to salon thalia for the first time and had such a wonderful experience. I was very lucky to have been serviced by Mia. She was much more than a great cut! Her skills in customer service were amazing. She took care and time helping me decide what was best for my hair. I left very satisfied and I think I found a stylist I can count on. Pros: Mia, great service Cons: Parking more

BETTER AND BETTER !!!!!!! 9/10/2005

I been to salon thalia three times already and my experiences have been over the top. What a team of talanted and friendly people. LizH and Jason have a way of making you feel confortable and relaxed. They are my favorite! Come and experience all that i have. more

I'm BLONDE!!!!!!!!! 9/1/2005

Finally, I am a beautiful Blonde! Last week I saw Carolyn for the first time and she did what no other hair stylist has been able to do for me. She took me from a brassy over processed looking drab blonde and gave me beautiful highlights and lowlights. I couldn't be happier! The salon is so beautiful and the service is wonderful! I also had a facial and it was very relaxing. more

Thanks to Allure Magazine!!! 8/19/2005

The August edition of Allure featured an article about the top colorists in different cities. I frequently go to New York and have been to several salons there for highlights. I have usually been pleased with the results. However, after reading Allure Magazine, I decided to try Bruce Slemmer of Salon Thalia who was featured in the article as a top colorist in Philadelphia. Never have I received such professional and personal attention. Along with that I received the best highlights and hair cut I have ever had! Ihad so many foils and a really natural look when he was done. Allure was absolutely on target!!! Bruce is now the only stylist who I will ever allow to do my hair. Forget those trips to New York unless Bruce goes there. Thank you Allure Magazine!!!!!! more


My wife knew that I would never treat myself to a real haircut, so she suprised me with a gift certificate to Salon Thalia. At first, I didn't know what to expect. I had been going to the same ""chop-shop"" place for years. I was immediately impressed with the salon enviroment! Ashley gave me the best haircut i've ever had. She took the time to explain the differences in mens clipper hair cuts, and an actual men's hair cut with scissors. My wife and I both agree that it is worth the ""splurge""! Thanks Ashley!!! See you again soon! Pros: easy parking, professional, costomer service more

AWESOME 8/3/2005

I agree with the previous reviewer, Ashley is amazing. She is the first person I've met that can play with my hair and make it look good instead of boring or frizzy. She is so sweet and makes me feel really good about my hair. I've been looking for somebody to cut my curly hair and she is the one!!! Yes, it's $55, but I'd rather spend that to get an amazing job then spend $25 to get a crappy job. It's worth it!! Pros: Friendly, Amazing stylist, visually pleasant more

Fantastic place and stylist 7/20/2005

I made an appointment after reading the reviews here on citysearch. I walked in and was amazed with how friendly the staff was. The salon is absolutely stunning! My stylist was Ashley, she is awesome! She knew exactly what to do with my hair. She spent over 3 hours highlighting and styling my hair, and I could not have asked for a better job. I absolutely love my hair, it has NEVER felt so good. I HIGHLY recommend Salon Thalia and Ashley. Pros: Excellent service, Reasonable prices, Great environment more

Great Place! 6/22/2005

I love this place. The staff is helpful and very nice. Mike is my stylist and he is excellent. He knows exactly what cut will look great. He even talked me out of something that would have looked horrible. I had a great experience and the price was very reasonable. I would recommend this place to anyone. more

o'tool time 6/13/2005

I just relocated to Philadelphia and had to go through the usual difficulties of finding a new salon and was fortunate enough to stumble upon Ashley at Salon Thalia. I left with a beautiful hair cut and color. Ashley was extremly professional and attentive. She even took the time to touch up my make-up and recommended a new lipstick to go with my new hair coloring. The salon itself is amazing with a friendly inviting atmosphere that most salons lack. I highly recommend Ashley and Salon Thalia. Pros: professional, parking, customer service more

A taste of tranquility 4/26/2005

Upon entering Salon Thalia expect to be greeted with warm sincerity. It seems as though no details have been over looked. I was a new client to this salon and I was refered by the owner to Carolyn. I initially was scheduled to get only a haircut because I go to another salon for my color but I was curious to hear what Carolyn would recommend. After having a consultation, I took the plunge and she transformed me. She also recomended a conditioning treatment that turned my previously dryed out hair into silk. I have never been treated with this type of professionalism and care. I highly recommend Carolyn and Salon Thalia. Pros: Tranquil Atmosphere, friendly staff, easy accessibility more

Amazingly Professional, Outrageously Good 4/5/2005

I've been to many salons in many cities, and Salon Thalia surpassed my highest expectations. The professionalism is unbelievable, from changing into a robe before a cut to the warm towels and personal attention you receive while your hair is washed. Moreover, the staff is unbelievably talented, and Maria, the owner, did a phenomenal job. I can't recommend this place highly enough. If you go to New York for a cut and spend over $100, don't bother anymore, because this place will do it better. If you go anywhere else in Philadelphia, now's the time to change. Pros: Personal Attention, Professionalism, Top Quality more

I Look great as a redhead! 3/16/2005

Thanks to John and Wyatt, I am now a beautiful redhead! This is the first time I went to a salon in the USA. Even tho I am from the area, I used to always travel to Toronto to get my hair done. I am tired of that. I finally found the right place and the right guys. I walked in, said I had no idea what I wanted, and I was amazed in the end. The salon was gorgeous and I got an appt very quickly. I will be back very soon! (thanks guys!) Pros: service/staff, atmosphere Cons: inner city parking more

I found a new lifelong hair salon. 3/9/2005

Everyone was very freindly in a very cool and trendy looking salon, without it feeling condescending. Bruce gave me a fabulous cut and highlights and really worked with me on what would be good with my face shape and skin tone. Completely worth the cost and I truly believe Salon Thalia will stop my hair salon wandering ways. more

My beautiful nails 3/9/2005

Gregory is amazing! I had a manicure and pedicure last week. His technique and consultation allowed me to understand and learn more about my needs. This wasn't just the basic manicure/pedicure. He went above and beyond my expectations! The salon was beautiful, and Gregory has a private hand and foot beautificiation treatment center. I highly recommend him!!!! more

Salon Thalia 2/5/2005

After years of trying to find a good Salon in Philadelphia, I finally came upon ""Salon Thalia"". I was referred by a friend who was very impressed with the service and the atmosphere. I made an appointment with a young lady named Tiffany. The person who answered the phone was very professional and courteous. Upon my arrival I was also impressed by the contempory,clean and beautiful environment. The people at the front desk were upbeat and friendly. Tiffany came out on time to great me. She was very consultative and knowledgable. She quickly grasped what I was looking for and went on to perform an outstanding job on my hair. Thank you Tiffany and Salon Thalia!! Pros: easy parking, clean and organized, friendly atmosphere more

Very Comfortable 2/3/2005

Salon Thalia offers an unbelieveable all-around experience. The Salon itself is absolutley stunning. I experienced the best facial of my life by Terry. And then my experience only got better from there. I finally have found the stylist of my dreams. Bruce Slemmer made me feel like I was a star and went over and beyond just being a stylist. He made me comfortable and even showed me ways to get the ""salon feeling"" everyday when I do my hair. The color was awesome. He made my highlights look so natural and gave me a used amazing products, Kerastase. I couldnt help but buy every product that he recommended because they made my hair look the best its even been. I loved this salon and I cant wait to go back. Pros: Customer Service, Skills, Color work more

TOP NOTCH 2/2/2005

The beautiful space and attentive staff make you feel like a VIP from the moment you walk in. I go to Maria, the owner, and have FINALLY found a stylist I will never cheat on. She holds herself to the highest standards and demands the same excellence from her staff. I've also had my hair done by Michael, Ashley, and Mia and loved each experience. In addition, you can't get a better shampoo anywhere else in the city - kudos to Wyatt and Carolyn. The staff is friendly, professional, and extremely skilled in what they're doing but lacking in the pretentious attitude that is common among such high end establishments. I look forward to every haircut and would encourage anyone in need of an amazing stylist to give Salon Thalia a chance - I promise you won't be disappointed. Pros: professional, courteous, skilled more
