First let me start by saying I am a former high end hairstylist myself and in my 42 years have let a total of 5 people cut my hair (because I don't trust ANYONE). I found TRAVIS through a friend that went to him for a "transformation"

Bad DIY bang trim? Michael has fixed mine several times now. Seriously my haircut looks intentional and fab. Yeah! Michael's got great personality and professionalism too. And love a salon that lets me remove my blouse and put a smock on

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. I don't understand how someone can be so consistently wonderful and then not be able to give the same haircut twice in a row. My husband has been going to Leanna, who he absolutely loves, but is now thinking about not going back to her, because Michael will get a percentage of her fee. I should mention that Michael is one of the owners of Salon Thalia.
Below is the letter I wrote to him:

I'm so unhappy with the haircut you gave me on Tuesday that I've decided not to come back to you any more. My hair is so unbearably short, I've been wearing a hat so that people won't see it. It seems that every time I get my hair cut by you lately, something is wrong and I have to come back in to have it fixed. I don't know if you don't hear what I want or don't care what I want. I've even brought in the same picture the last three times I've come in and only once in the three times did you cut it like the picture.

I can't deal with getting a good haircut once in a while any more. And I feel that you should know why you won't see me in your salon any more.

There's really nothing you can do, because my hair is way too short to even "fix" this time.

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 talked about me coming back for a keratin treatment to defrizz my hair, since then my color still looks fabulous, the keratin treatment did exactly what she said it would do,which was defrizz my curls and cut down my blowdry time. My final recommrndation is A+. Professional,consistant,knowledgeable and skillfull.Thanks Maria!

So, my former stylist left the previous salon that I was going to without notice. I called Salon Thalia after admiring someones hair I had noticed while riding the bus and I was told to ask for Maria, I immediately felt comfortable after Maria gave me a very thorough consultation for color and a haircut. Not only did she explain what and why she was going to do what I needed, she followed through and my results were outstanding. I left the salon feeling beautiful and I'm going back in 2 weeks to get a Keratin treatment to help smooth out my curls and defrizz my hair. Once again I could tell that she was very experienced and I'm confident that the results will be outstanding. Stay tuned I'll let you know how it goes...

I have been getting highlights for years & I am very, very picky about color! I have also been to just about every salon in philadlelhia and nothing compares to Michael G @ Salon Thalia! He puts An immense amount of time and care into what I want as well as what is best for my hair type and texture. He gives the color that I want and is still cautious not to Compromise the health of my hair. I've also been trying to grow my hair and when I ask Michael for a trim, he does just that! He never goes scissor crazy. I always leave loving my cut and color! Even my very picky boyfriend ALWAYS loves it!! Michael G is not only an amazing stylist (the absolute best at color), but also very friendly and energetic- making the whole experience fun!!

I am very picky with my hair and I am not an easy client, but Michael G always takes the time to listen to what I want and what I??m concerned with. I always hate being rushed and feeling like the hairstylist really doesn??t take the time to listen to what I wanted. Michael is amazing, he has great energy and is excited to cut and color hair. His coloring is impeccable! I started coming to him after seeing my friend??s perfect highlights. He always takes his time to make sure the cut is just right. What I love most about him is that he does both color and cut SO well, before I had to go to different people to get the best result. Every time I go to him, I leave completely in love with my hair. Highly recommend Michael, my friends and I only go to him.

I was based in Philly for work for 14 months and went to Travis at Salon Thalia after a recommendation through a friend. Travis is an awesome hairdresser - my color has never been better and the cut is both flattering and stylish.

Above all, Travis is a great guy! Really friendly, full of energy and knows just about every great restaurant and bar in Center City...

If it was feasible to go back regularly from Asia to get my hair cut by Travis I would :-)

Salon Thalia is the best salon I have ever been to! Carolyn always did an amazing job on my cut and color... it's like she read my mind and knew exactly what I wanted. This past year I moved from Philly to Florida and it's been almost 10 months and I STILL have not found anyone as great as her! Carolyn, I think you should move to Florida, or come here on vacation and do my hair!!! :)

Had an awesome facial with Alissa at Salon Thalia. She was great. I have only had two facials in the past but this one was definitely the best. I felt like I could fall asleep it was so relaxing! My skin was real soft afterward. I saw a difference immediately.
She recommended some great products and I am anxious to start using them. I have already booked my next facial in another month, and I cant wait!

John has been cutting my hair for years. He is excellent at men's cuts!! Well worth the $$. Every time I leave extremely happy with my cut and often find myself calling him back to let him know how much I love it. The salon is definitely a step up from his old salon. The warm towels are a simple touch but they make a difference!! Now if only they had a manicurist the salon would be complete.

I have been going to John for cut and color for years now and it has been a great experience since day one. He transformed my once blah hair into something with wow factor, and has kept it consistent. John is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, and he listens to what I want while still doing what is best for my hair. Now that he is at Salon Thalia, the beautiful space and friendly staff make the experience that much better! I always leave feeling pampered and happy. Highly recommend John and Salon Thalia!!

John B. has been cutting and styling my hair for years and in one word he is "amazing." He always listens, offers this thoughts on change, is creative, talented, and he keeps up with the latest styling and cutting techniques. After my last several visits with John at least one stranger has approached me later that day to compliment me on my "exquisite" and "fabulous" hair cut. John is friendly and always has positive energy every time I see him. I HIGHLY recommend John!! You will not be disappointed!

I reviewed John when he was at Salon at 5th and faithfully followed him when he moved to Salon Thalia. This place is very luxe AND friendly.

Previous review: "The one thing in my life that is 100% low maintenance is my hair. We have an unspoken agreement that I won't torture it with products and instruments and it will in return not look like cold booty. So you might think that I'm not too picky about hair salons, but it takes a lot of talent to cut a nice easy-to-take-care-of coif that doesn't look totally boring! That's where John comes in. He is a great hair stylist and always listens to what I ask for (which is usually "anything that will work without a hairdryer"). Despite my complete lack of styling technique I never fail to get several compliments following a visit with John"

Katie at Salon Thalia has been styling my hair for years. She does an amazing job, she's obviously very talented and a sweet, funny young woman as well.

I usually see her for a routine trim and highlight until recently she did my hair for a wedding. I was so happy with the outcome, I've finally decided to write up a little review.

I've never gotten so many compliments, and I wish she could hear all of the great comments I got. She gave me a gorgeous romantic curl and absolutely amazing make-up. I felt like a princess!! I went in and left everything up to her. Her vision was brilliant and can be trusted for sure!!

John has been cutting & coloring my hair for over 4 1/2 years and he is absolutely brilliant. He always takes time to listen to my ideas and then comes up with some new creative idea of his own. I would never trust anyone else to hi-light my hair. There is no one out there that does it quite like the way he does.
Salon Thalia is absolutely gorgeous... very spacious and upscale with out being over priced. I only wish that there were nail services available. It would make things much easier.

I have been going to Salon Thalia for 2 years now. I love it! I go see Carolyn every time and she does an amazing job. I actually have an appointment today. I have long brown hair and she is the first person I have trusted to really styling my look. She cuts long hair amazing and is an absolute pro at highlights and lowlights. Everything always looks so natural and not over done. The staff is so friendly and accomodating. I find the prices to be very reasonable because my hair always looks amazing. If you go, I 100% recommend Carolyn. She does and great job and always listens to what you want!

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.

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!

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!

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 :).

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.

My hair looks excellent - every time I blowdry it, I'm surprised by how well the cut has kept up (including the side-swept bangs, which Travis volunteered to trim between cuts for free).

Travis is an enormously talented, professional, and attentive stylist. He is very passionate about his work and about performing exceptional service for his clients.

The layers he cut fell beautifully on that day and continue to look perfect despite my less-than-perfect blow-drying abilities.

I also had fun while at Salon Thalia - Travis taught me lots about my hair (and hair in general) and we chatted as if we had known each other for years.

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.

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.

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!

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

.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
While travelling from Scottsdale this summer we specifically came to Philly so I could have him 'cut and color'...it was perfect...and his new home Salon Thalia suits perfectly. The staff were so pleasant and helpful - especially when as a tourist I got lost and was late....
Scottsdales loss is certainly Philadephias gain..
I am glad to see he is already getting recognition from other customers - he deserves it!! (Miss you Travis)

Pros: Stylist Extrordinare

Cons: None

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!

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?

Travis really took the time to work with what kind of look I wanted. He had great ideas on how to update me and make me feel INCREDIBLE! I get so many compliments on my cut and color! He used to be an educator for a big company and is really knowledgeable in his craft. This man is truly an artist! I will never let anyone else touch my hair again! The work he created was AMAZING and he is a really great person also! The price wasn't too bad either.

I recently went to Memories for the first time for a Brazillian wax - everything you've heard about her is true! She is amazing! Like the girl below me said, she usses some special wax that hurt no more than a bandaid coming off. And personally, I had a perfectly warm greeting from the reception staff so I don't know what that's about. I'm gonna try them for my hair next, I hope that's as great as Memories was! Plus, i didn't even get bumpy the next day.

Memories was incredible. She made me comfortable, and used this blue wax which made the bikini wax feel the same as a band-aid wripping off.

Pros: Easiest bikini wax ever

Cons: Not the most welcoming reception staff.

I've had a couple facials here over the past year and I just have to say how much I love Memories and the salon itself. In this economy, my skin is something I just won't scrimp on, it makes me feel good and Memories is the best - number 1 hands down in Philadelphia - no question about it! She really customizes each time depending on what I need and is so funny and warm and soothing. She never makes me feel bad about my occassional or not so ocasional acne. The salon itself is beautiful! I can't remember the name of the girl who cut my hair but she was great too. I just wish I could afford all the wonderful products they have up front!

A friend of mine had told me about this place a while ago and I never made it in until recently. I'm sorry I waited so long. My hair has never looked better. Even weeks later after my cut, my hair is still drying really well on its own. Usually, my hair falls back into its unruly self after a week or two when I leave a salon but not this time. I also had a one color done and I bought the shampoo and conditioner they had recommended from Kerasstasse and wow! They were right, they really do make a difference. I've been using Redken and Pantene for so many years and I didn't realize what a difference the right products and the right cut can make. Plus, its just a beautiful salon with huge windows overlooking the park, it really can't be beat! I'm gonna go back soon for a facial with Memmories (I think that's her name, she did my brows too!) and I think that's gonna be awesome too! I don't usually write these kinds of things but I really liked my expereicne here so I wanted to share.

I've been a customer for about 2 years now and have had nothing but a positive experience. My hair is extremely thick and hard to control but I was able to get a cut that was easy to manage, stylish and hip. The stylist was able to look at my hair and direct me to a cut that would work with my hair type and the shape of my face. I wasn't sure that I was going to like the cut but I'm glad I listened because now I love it.They have always given me nothing but a professional cut , and a smiling face the moment I enter the building. The salon is always clean with a professional atmosphere and they never had to bump my appointment due to another client who was disrespectful by showed up late.
But I must say I LOVE MY HAIR!!!!!! And have gotten complement after complement by my friends. I'll continue to give them my repeat business.
Thanks guys, I never knew I could look so good!!!!!

I have never written a review before but feel so strongly about Salon Thalia that I have to write one now. I was a customer there from the day they opened... like 4 or 5 years ago until recently. I went there religiously (for cuts & highlights) the entire time. I purchased every hair care product from them including shampoo/conditioner and even my brushes, not to mention I referred dozens (seriously dozens) of people there. I was only ever welcomed there by my stylist, assistants and just one of the owners. The front desk staff and the other owner were never gracious and never acted appreciative of my business or referrals. I was treated with disrespect on more than 1 occasion (in-person and over the phone). My stylist was the reason I endured ?? always gracious, super-talented, appreciative and accommodating. I adore my stylist, so when they left, I left. Unfortunately, they parted ways on less than amicable circumstances. The reason for this post is not only the above but to reveal the manner in which they have handled this undesirable circumstance. Days later, I learned that one of the front desk attendants posted on their Facebook page that they were happy to not have to wait on me again... and they used my first and last name. Needless to say, I was shocked and furious as this is WILDLY unprofessional and truly ridiculous because other than get annoyed by their frequently unhelpful and at times rude behavior, I have never treated them with unkindness or disrespect. Plus I have spent THOUSANDS annually since they opened and referred MANY others who have referred others. Apparently there was real issue with treating a long-time consumer with respect and courtesy ?? and NO UNDERSTANDING OF TRUE CUSTOMER SERVICE and what that entails in a business model that depends on repeat business and referrals. I do not take pleasure in posting reviews like this but felt the need to in this occasion.
