Seriously. Is she paying people to write these reviews? I found Fransceca to be a total snot. She was rude, brusque and totally obnoxious. Still, she told me to trust her and she ooozed confidence. Unfortunately, she mangled my hair so

Francesca was rude, rough and I don't care what talent she may have or not have her personality is hot and very cold. So if you don't want to feel frozen whenever you may utter an opinion not to her liking find another salon.

FOLLICALIZED MAKEOVER!!
by FRANCESCA RIVETTI at Insider Pages

A friend highly recommended Follicle, told me about the consultation appointment, at first i was skeptical as i just wanted to get my hair done.... i had major roots! After much disappointment from past salons, i decided to give theconsultation a try. This was the best experience and investment i have made. I sat with Francesca, she blow me away with her knowledge and concern with the integrity of my hair and image. This is the best cut and color EVER!!

I just don't get it. Are you all Francesca's friends, family members? What's up with the reviews? I had an okay cut and color. But I don't want to spend over $300 and have a coworker say to me - so when are you getting your hair cut. Yes. Right AFTER my cut AND COLOR. And honestly, could have gotten it at Hair Cuttery. For much, much cheaper. Yes, definitely go for Francesca when you want to spend a lot.

Follicle isn't nearly as cool a salon as they think they are. Gotta run, and get a real haircut!

I've been seeing Francesca for over two years and have been pleased with every visit. I first went to Follicle when I worked in the city, and even though I now work and live in NJ, I still travel over the bridge because she's the best! Because I can't get in the city too often, I schedule my cuts for every 8-10 weeks and they always last. I often get compliments on my hair even up to the day that I go back for a trim. Yesterday someone told me that I looked like I belonged in a hair commercial. To me, this is the best compliment I could have received.

From the original consultation, Francesca understood my style which she deemed, "classic with a twist " which describes me perfectly. I appreciate that she takes each person's lifestyle into account. Although she has (brave!) clients who make bold color choices, she understands that it's not my style. She encourages me to try new things that keep my look fresh, however she always stays in a place where I am comfortable. I am willing to try new things because I trust her judgement and she's never let me down. Her goal is to make each person look the best that they can and I think she does just that. This is the best my hair has ever looked!

Follicle believes they have the right to charge for a canceled appointment yet go on to say "There is a possibility your appointment may need to be rescheduled due to filming/photo shoot commitments." So does that mean I will be compensated for my troubles if they cancel on me. Some how I don't think so. There are alot of hairdressers in the sea people. Don't feed the shark.

Thank you soooooooo much Francesca!
I am always amazed at how well Francesca's haircuts grow in. This time due to the economy I had to stretch the appointment from already a 10wk schedule to 14wks, I did consider going else where, but thought better of it. As I do not believe anyone else can come even remotely close to Francesca's talent. I got complements right up to the day of my appointment. this in my opinion is well worth the time and $$ invested in me, because I know I am worth it!!
Thanks again

I told Franscecsa not too cut too much off my hair, and she completely ignored me and hacked it all off. The color made me look like Ronald McDonald. After being told at work that my hair look unprofessional, I had to go to Pileggi and get it fixed. The guy there asked me if I dyed it myself! It looks awful. I have cancelled plans because my hair looks so bad. Fransceca is arrogant, doesn't listen, does what she wants, and when she has an off day she takes it out on your hair. Don't risk it.

Great way to start 2009. New hairstylist, new look. I read about Francesca in Allure mag, she was voted the best for hair cut,color and make-over, which is exactly what I needed.
Great service and above all very knowledgeable and talented. The experience was priceless. I think the consultation is a genius idea and I left excited and couldn't wait to get the service which was worth the wait. Well done!! Get compliments all the time.
thanks Francesca

Men?s haircuts can become redundant and typical. I was itching to find someone who worked outside the box. I came to Francesca in February ?08 with a ?typical? men?s cut; about nose length and looking like a brown football helmet. I didn?t quite know what I wanted, but I knew I wanted a mod cut while keeping the length. She said ?I know what to do!? and that was that. Now usually I am accustomed to stylists easing into the cut and the shape. Not Francesca? she does not tiptoe into a cold pool. Taking the daring, and unconventional, plunge first I wanted to scream ?what the f&*$ are you doing!? However I knew to just let her do her thing as she went around me with razors like Edward Scissorhands. Let me tell you, she delivered like Domino?s! An amazing cut, razored, textured, a truly avant-garde coif that received rave reviews.

She is extremely creative and her cuts are truly amazing. They grow in perfectly that I can go longer between cuts while retaining the style. I receive a lot of compliments on my hair, even right before I go in for another appointment, which can go 6-8 weeks apart. Over the past year she has taken me short, long, asymmetrical; each time she takes creative control and I am elated at her work. Francesca continues to amaze me.

Three words to describe Francesca: creative, edgy and talented.

Francesca has been working her artistry and magic on my hair for ten plus years. I can say from exprerience that her work gets better with time. My hair looks just as "fabulous" weeks after a cut. The shape and color never fade, garner many compliments, and most importantly, make me feel like a "rock star" even though I'm a working mom! Never a bad hair day!

All i can say "i never have a bad hair day" anymore and all i can thank is Franceska Rivetti. She does the best color, cut and look all at once.
It is very important to have one less thing to worry about when you get up and get ready for an intense, full of excitement, busy and exhausting day.
Not only that Franceska gives you the best look but you feel very comfortable in her salon Follicle. Lots of good energy, fun talks and just great time.
Thank you Franceska. I feel very happy and lucky to have met you!

I was so excited after the consultation, couldn't wait for the service which was a 2 week wait, though worth it. Francesca, took her time in explaining why and how, I enjoyed being kept in the loop during the service which was 3 weeks ago, color still looks amazing and get compliments all the time. Francesca is a true artist. Thanks again, you rock!!

Skip this nasty experience. I scheduled my consultation with Francesca- I had gone to the same stylist for ten years, she was battling breast cancer and took some time off - I had to find a new stylist and went for a consultation with Francesca. My hair was great - Francesca agreed, she said it was the best cut for my hair and there wasn't much she could change - thereforeshe was not sure I could not wear the "Follicle Stamp." If she couldn't dramtically change my hair she wasn't interested in having me as a client. There was some brief talk of dramatically changing my hair color - but Francesca never offered any suggestions of how to change the color. She was more interested in where I had been getting my hair styled, why I was leaving that salon, and how often I change stylists. As my previous stylist was ill I did not want to discuss this. Almost immediately she started throwing around the word "incompatibility" I found that interesting as she didn't offer any suggestions for me to disagree with. The five minutes I was with her she offered NO suggestions for my hair and I was charged $35. Save your time and your money and go to another kind stylist.

Francesca's talent is unique and unparalleled in Philadelphia. She creates results that arise from her innate sense of synergy and emergence managing hair expertly toward a creative and livable style.

I was not so sure that she would want to take her creative energy and apply it toward a middle-aged guy like me. I figured there was no way she would be bothered (no other "stylist" seemed to really care). But she did. Three cuts (6 weeks apart) and she continues to keep me fresh, urban, and yet appropriate for work. With her cuts I can change my look at any time depending on my mood and it always looks cool. (And I don't have to spend more than 10 minutes typically doing that). To be fair, I was used to the typical, boring, uncreative approach other stylists took toward me that I really didn't know that I looked...better until everyone started commenting.

Thanks Francesca.

As a stylist myself, I know the importance of a great salon experience. Francesca and her team of assistants are experts at making you feel at home in the space and feel like you are getting the royal treatment. Francesca is an amazing talent with tons of creativity and expertise in cutting and coloring. Each time I visit the salon, I leave feeling like I got exactly what I asked for. I feel relaxed from the moment I walk in. I love that the space is small and intimate allowing you to get one-on-one, personalized treatment. Don't come in expecting to look like everyone else on the street when you leave. Each cut is customized for your needs, your lifestyle, your face shape, and your personal style. A gem in a city full of average salons.

There is just amazing energy when you walk in the door. Photos of funky, fabulous looks that make you want to re-invent yourself! It's the only place I've ever benn comfortable saying "Do whatever you want" (even if I do slip in every once in a while that I "like" my hair long :) thanks Francesca!! And, Jenny was the first to finally find a good shape in my eyebrow for which I cannot thank her enough!

Francesca has been my stylist since 2000. She was highly recommended by friends. I have long thick somewhat coarse asian hair, so my haircuts in the past tended to lose its shape after a few weeks. Francesca was the first stylist to tell me that my hair needed to be texturized or else it would be too thick and shapeless. Francesca uses a technique that allows more time in between cuts. She knows hair! With the exception of the length, I pretty much allow Francesca free creative range. My hairstyle preference tends towards classic, but over the years I?ve dabbled in highlights, lowlights, and peek-a-boo highlights. There has never been pressure to do something that I did not want. The salon is on the second floor at 1807 Chestnut. If you look up to the glass facade when walking on Chestnut, you can sometimes catch a glimpse of Francesca working her magic. The salon itself is comfortable and cool ? the interior is mostly a light purple with muted silver accent. Prints of her award-winning creations cover the walls. There?s a plush red sofa in the middle of the room where clients can sit and watch Francesca work as they wait for their appointment. It?s hard not to notice the accolades she has collected over the years. In the past I?ve attempted to save money by going to a budget-hair cutting place instead of this Rittenhouse-area salon. In the end, it was not worth it because the haircuts were so mediocre and not as cost efficient as I had hoped. Over the years, I?ve recommended many people to her. Most were hooked. On a few occasions, I?ve had strangers off the street ask who styled my hair. This place may not be a fit for everyone -- but you won't know unless you try!

There is a god...goddess of hair that is. I had my hair colored elswhere, not at all happy with the result so, I took it upon myself to by a box color, BIG MISTAKE!! I did my research and found Francesca...what a genius! She fixed it in less than 3hrs and it turned out to be exactly what I had in mind. Lesson learnt, never go to a salon at the last minute, you never know who or what your going to get. My hair looks and feels amazing. She took her time and explained all the steps along the way. Very knowledgable and experienced in her field. I will definatly be returning. Thank you "Goddess of hair"

I have been having Francesca style my hair for 3 years, and would not trust anyone else to come near my head with shears. It is such a fun experience (if you like change) to say, "do your thing" and have no worries about the end result. I honestly have had a totally different look every single time, and I always feel like a million bucks when I leave. Francesca has always provided exceptional service, because her name is on the people who leave her salon. This says a lot for a hairstylist, and is not comparable to some of the stylists that work for a "name" salon. I love to keep up with the latest fashions and to me hair is the most important expression of style you can put out there. Thank you for another exceptional hair cut. Yesterday I donated 12 inches of my hair to locks of love. AND I LOVE THE LOCKS THAT ARE STILL ON MY HEAD!!!

I've lived in Philly 20yrs, FINALLY, a salon that knows the art of hair with no boundaries. I've hopped around in search of a funky salon,of which I thought did not exist here, until my experience with Francesca. The consultation is a great approach. Her honesty and insight left feeling very comfortable and excited to get my service. On that note do not miss getting your eyebrows sculpted by the one and only Ms Jenny. Overall, this salon is a hidden gem, It was an unforgettable experience. Looking foward to the next visit.
Thanks girls!!

Pros: Best in philly, for brows and hair

Cons: must book in advance

Bad cut, bad color. Very disappointed with the whole experience. Bold blonde streaks and a short bob looked horrible. The consultation was a joke. She doesn't listen, but instead takes charge and does whatever she wants. Sadly, none of it suited me. Once done, it's too late. Wouldn't be as bad if it didn't cost so damn much. I feel like I was taken to the cleaners. Then I had to pay for color correction and a new haircut to undo the damage. First time in my adult life that I absolutely hated my hair and felt totally foolish for paying $400 to look so incredibly bad. Biggest waste of money and time. Don't be fooled.

Bad cut, bad color. Very disappointed with the whole experience. Bold blonde streaks and a short bob looked horrible. The consultation was a joke. She doesn't listen, but instead takes charge and does whatever she wants. Sadly, none of it suited me. Once done, it's too late. Wouldn't be as bad if it didn't cost so damn much. I feel like I was taken to the cleaners. Then I had to pay for color correction and a new haircut to undo the damage.

Pros: Enjoyed coming in to Philadelphia

Cons: The whole experience. Over-priced, hype. Looked better before I had my hair done there.

If you like to pay $100 for a haircut, this is the place for you! Not to mention you have to pay to have her consult with you. And disagree with the "vision" she has of your hair during consulting, and pay you shall. Pay by enduring a tongue lashing only she could get away with (at least with some 5 star reviewers).
Let me end by saying if you want your hair to be a fashion mullet (so 7 years ago imo!) or a great version of Sigourney Weaver in "Ghostbusters" then go to Follicle. Just don't disagree with the green streak in your hair or the fact that your hair looks rather like a mushroom in shape (that is a QUOTE from a friend about her hair). Or you may be reduced to tears.

Or Better yet see one of the other hundreds of talented stylists on the same street, and get a more updated look without the attitude!

After going through many new life transitions, I was ready for a new look and Francesca sensed my readiness to do something dramatic. So, following my consultation, she cut off more than 10 in. (donated to Locks of Love)! It felt so freeing! After leaving Follicle, I had already received my first compliment on my haircut from a complete stranger before I even made it home! Of course, the true test was revealing my new do to my husband... and he loved it! Now a week since my big cut, and he still can't stop saying how great my hair looks. Honestly, best hair cut I've ever had. Francesca gave me a cut that truly flatters MY face and fits my lifestyle. I'm hooked.

Pros: Leaving the salon with hair that truly fits YOU

.

Finally, an artist that put the"F" into Funk. My experience @ Follicle was a last resort after trying many hyped up salons that claim to be "Funky" Francesca surely knows her craft and is not afraid to create what's best for you. I have been a client for 2 yrs and every time I go she amazes me on how swiftly she can change my rocker hair!!
If you are afraid of change go someplace else, if you are up for originality, this is the place to be!!

I have been a devoted client of Ms. Francesca for nearly a year now, and there is definitely no going back once you've stepped foot in her adorable studio overlooking the masses on Chestnut St. If you're not sure what cut or color will suit you best, not to stress -- Francesca takes her time during the consultation to examine all your hair's traits and fashions the perfect style that suits YOU. No cookie-cutter cuts here! Her assistant Jenny is a master at brows -- she does not over-do and pays careful attention to shape your brows to complement your face. What's more, these ladies are so much fun, an appointment at Follicle feels like a hang-out session with a couple of your bff's. Great service, great fun, and great hair!

Pros: Where do I begin?

Cons: None

After doing MUCH research, I came across Follicle (ironically by asking a friend with great hair where she got hers done!). It had been almost a year since my last cut and color, and I was in dire need of a "new look." My long, curly locks were stuck in a major rut! Well, long story short, Francesca rules! After my consultation with her I was truly psyched about my impending transformation. Even though I was open minded to almost anything, I left my consultation with a good idea as to what I was looking forwards to at my appointment. Francesca is so easy-going and understood that I wanted to keep my length but, at the same time, she was eager to give me the "just-off-the boat" irish-girl RED that totally suits my skin tone (including matching brows!). Plus, she threw in these little surprise blonde bits on which EVERYONE has complimented! At the time, it didn't seem that she cut much off, but my curls have never been better nor shapelier; they are soft and billowy spirals - so much so that everyone thinks they are "enhanced"! I made my next appointment immediately, and I can not wait! Francesca is not afraid to push the envelope when it comes to hair and is amazing at doing such rich, beautiful (even restrained, if need be!) locks. LOVE, love, love!

Cons: parking in center city stinks. take the bus.

After reading the rave reviews on citysearch and dailycandy, it was obvious that I had to get styled by Francesca. I loved the consultation appointment, and really felt that she understood my lifestyle and got to know my hair. I have to admit, I was a little nervous when I first arrived, but was calmed down in seconds after a brief chat and a fabulous head massage from Jenny during the shampoo. I really enjoyed the haircut process, and was fascinated while watching Francesca turn my drab locks into a stylish and fabulous look. Friends and family can't stop telling me how much they love my new haircut, and I can't help but agree and gush about follicle!! Follicle is an amazing,creative space too (from the furniture, decor, and music). Love, love, love follicle. Thanks Francesca and Jenny!

Have you ever had your stylist serenade you? Be prepared for an experience unlike any other. Leave your drab hair at the door and on the floor!Come with an open mind and be prepared to be "follicle-ized." I had hair that just wasn't working for me anymore and Fransceca cut and colored it into a beautiful, flattering style that is winning rave reviews. I have been to many "top" salons in New York City and London and this is truly the best. It iscouture hair. LOVE IT!!! And on another note, her assistant Jenny is awesom and does the best eyebrows. She spent at least a half and hour explaining how she was making my feeble brows go to brow wow wow!

First off, I'll admit I do not know what actually transpired b/w the below reviewer and Follicle. However, I will say that Francesca is upfront during her consultation and will not work on a person's hair if she feels she cannot achieve a look the person desires. In addition, she also shows a plethora of portfolios exhibiting her work (on regular people, mind you - not models). Knowing this, I believe this person should have known whether her hair and Francesca were a perfect match.
Finally, and this is a fact, Francesca does NOT charge $400 as the person states (unless she also bought every single haircare product known to man at the salon). This piece of false information alone, in my mind, discredits sprice 1602's particular review.
As for me, I am pretty conservative and seek styles reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn and Francesca, in fact, gave me a makeover that paid a modern homage to this classic siren. Thus, I do not understand this review and believe the reviewer should have gone to someone without vision and expertise.

WOW!! what an incredible experience!
the consultation was soooo enlightening. Francesca. knows what's she's talking about! No pressure, she told it how it is, I have never looked so good, like i just stepped out of a magazine. My hair is so healthy and shiny and it swings with personality, I've never had so many compliments. Hooked! Thank you!

I always hated my hair, and always wanted help - like they give people on makeover shows. I needed someone to tell me what to do. After reading about Francesca on Daily Candy, I decided to give it a try. I went in for my consultation where Francesca told me - just like I wanted - exactly what would help my hair. Everything sounded great to me, and shortly after the consultation, I went in for my "makeover". I have no other way of describing it than a major life event. My hair is no longer the bane of my existence - I actually really love it. I literally get stopped on the street - people tell me they love my hair. At work, everyone asks about what I had done, etc. and for Francesca's information! I cannot say enough about how much I love love love Francesca and her talent! I would absolutely recommend Francesca to anyone.

Great concept. I went for the consultation and was very impressed with the approach and knowledge Francesca displays. I've never had anyone sit me down and look at my hair and profile and know exactly what will and will not work. Francesca offered several suggestions and I agreed with her 100%, the challegnge was me, am I ready for a new image? Francesca states, if you are not ready inwardly you won't wear it outwardly confidently. There was no pressure to make an appointment,she left it up to me.I may not be ready at the present, but when I am, I will put my trust in Follicle.
Thank you

I went to follicle after reading the glowing reviews on this website, and was disappointed. I was looking for a fantastic haircut, but soon realized I had gone to the wrong place. Francesca is very sweet and very talented, but she should warn potential customers that she specializes exclusively in total makeovers. I wasn't looking for a complete and total change, but she wanted to make some very dramatic changes in my hair. She also REFUSED to cut my hair if I didn't let her color it as well, even though I had said over the phone that I wanted to make an appointment for just a haircut. She says they always do a consultation the week before any haircut, and after I went for the consultation and decided I didn't think I wanted to schedule an appointment, she still charged me $35 for the five-minute consultation! I'm sure Francesca does amazing things when you want a complete, dramatic makeover, but this definitely is NOT the right salon for everyone.

Love Francesca! She's great. My hair looks fabulous, the color is great and it's a super easy cut. It's totally a perfect cut for me! That's thanks to Francesca who actually takes the time to listen. I've never had someone make it so easy to pop in and relax and let them do whatever they wish. My friends love the color and even my boyfriend noticed the precision of the cut. Yeah!

I have been getting my hair styled by Francesca for over 4years and every time I am left speechless at how beautiful and cutting edge my hair looks. Every time I leave the salon people stop me on the street and ask where do I go. My hair always receives compliments! I usually let Francesca do whatever to my hair and I am never disappointed and it is still very easy to manage and I have THICK curly hair that she styles for me to wear either straight or curly. Even thought I now live 700 miles away I still get my hair done by her! She is one of very few stylist out there that understands hair not just as an art but as a form of science involved. If you choose to go to Follicle you will not be disappointed she will make you into a new and fabulous you!!!!

I've been with Francesca for over a year now. In that year, I've challenged Francesca with a variety of demands. I started with permed curly hair in an extremely unflattering style. Francesca was the first person to truly give me a flattering and MANAGEABLE cut that made my curls look stunning. Then I wanted color--rich, punchy color. Francesca custom-formulated a brilliant and lustrous red that made my skin and eyes glow. I have been getting compliments on the color AT LEAST 2 times a week for the past 6 months since I got the new color. Then, I lost 30 pounds, and wanted a change to go with my new look. Francesca used her amazing skill, convinced me to go straight, and gave me the most amazing cut that looks FABULOUS while getting rid of my curls and accenting the new shape of my slimmed-down face. All of my cuts got TONS of compliments--not just my color. So this is it: Francesca is great cutting curls, brilliant with straight locks, amazing with color, and has an unbelievable understanding of what her clients want, what would look good on them, and what's current. If you trust Francesca, she'll give you such a good cut, you won't have any trouble reproducing it at home (even if you only want to spend 10-15 minutes on your hair like I do--including drying time). I would recommend no other--absolutely, positively!

I am so happy with my haircut from Francesca! It has been a few weeks now and my hair still looks great and I am able to maintain it myself! It works for my busy life (working full time and mother of 2 little girls) and looks great. Thanks Follicle!

Best Birthday Present Ever!
By Anonymous
Trust Francesca and her judgment about what will look best on you. She's like a plastic surgeon for hair...and knows things to do that you could never conceive of or know would be most flattering on you. I was reluctant to have my long hair cut shoulder length but am so glad i trusted Francesca. Do yourself a favor. Schedule a consult, then allow Francesca to do her magic...you'll be so glad you did. Consider it an investment in great hair. I also recommend the products she sells to best maintain such a great investment.

Francesca is the BEST hands down. Her salon Follicle truly provides the most relaxing time of my every 5 weeks visit. Her inovation genius works magic on your hair. I'm a blonde and my hair hasn't ever been as healthy as it's been since I've been going to Follicle for 1.5yrs. And lastly, she's such a nice person and a pleasure to talk with. If you want style and you want or have been trying to get that certain cut, you'll walk out of there with....only she can do it!!!!

I absolutely adore my new haircut and color!! I can't even form the appropriate words to express just how lovely my hair looks. When she showed me my new cut in the mirror, I had no idea what to say, as I was so delighted.

Francesca spent time with me during the consult and learned not just what would look good on me, but what cut fit in with my lifestyle (no fuss, wash and go). You have to understand just how curly my hair is! BF (Before Francesca), my hair was a wild frizzy, color damaged mess. Now I have silky, beautiful defined curls that are GORGEOUSLY highlighted. My husband loves it.

Francesca is a genius!

Francesca truly is remarkable!! If you are looking for a makeover, a completely new you, you have found your woman! The consultation seems odd at first, but after going to it I started to think "why havent they thought of this before?!"

My hair has pretty much been long for the past 10 yrs and its because I just didnt know what hair style worked best for me. Now its short, and past all my doubt and fears, I LOVE IT!! I am sooo glad I listened to Francesca's advice. I have never gotten more remarks from guys and girls about my hair before. Even my guy friends who said they preferred long hair have told me that this cut is absolutely fabulous. Every one keeps asking where I got it cut....all I'm saying is don't be surprised if you have a swarm of new clients in the next month or two!

My hair has pretty much been long for the past 10 yrs and its because I just didnt know what hair style worked best for me. Now its short, and past all my doubt and fears, I LOVE IT!! I am sooo glad I listened to Francesca's advice. I have never gotten more remarks from guys and girls about my hair before. Even my guy friends who said they preferred long hair have told me that this cut is absolutely fabulous. Every one keeps asking where I got it cut....all I'm saying is don't be surprised if you have a swarm of new clients in the next month or two!

Pros: Francesca, quaint salon, personal/intimate service

Cons: A little bit pricey but totally worth it!

Trust Francesca and her judgment about what will look best on you. She's like a plastic surgeon for hair...and knows things to do that you could never conceive of or know would be most flattering on you. I was reluctant to have my long hair cut shoulder length but am so glad i trusted Francesca. Do yourself a favor. Schedule a consult, then allow Francesca to do her magic...you'll be so glad you did. Consider it an investment in great hair. I also recommend the products she sells to best maintain such a great investment.
