Monique is really knowledgeable and has great reccomendations for helping with your scalp issues. I now am a religiuous user of jojoba oil, tea tree oil, and lavender and was able to forgo using dermatologist prescribed medication for my itchy, dry scalp! Love it here :)

Pros: Monique is very knowledgeable about the oils

Cons: complimentary blowout not great.

I had a haircut today by Brigette. She did a fantastic job. She was careful, purposive, and cut my hair like a pro! I walked in somewhat pretentious, w/my hair looking really, really bad. I was tremendously overdo for a good cut...a center city style.
Well, Brigette and Monique made me feel very relaxed. They took the time to examine "my profile" for the best style. I also received kind, and sweet compliments about the bone structure of my "face." Monique was very helpful to Brigette and shared her expertise.
Brigette was attentive, and took her time. I even closed up the salon, as Monique modeled some of her proven techniques. Monique cares about her staff and is committed to sharing her positive energy.
Thank you Brigette, Monique, Ruppert and Jessica for an uplifting and pleasant experience!!! Peace...

I've been going to Jessica at Moko for a while and would now never consider going to anyone else. I have very thick and unmanageable hair and Jessica never fails to give me a perfect (and very unique) haircut that I can do with ease every morning. Each time I go in she pays very close attention to detail when I tell her what I'm looking for and is always happy to work with me and make sure I get exactly what I'm looking for - and when I don't know what that is, she's always full of great ideas. The compliments I receive on her work never cease.

Pros: Stylist, haircut, price

Cons: None

I went today for $20 Tuesday for new clients, considering I have been trying out new salons in Old City. I had a hair cut with Jess and LOVED her. The place was great, I got along well with Jess, she understood my needs and gave me a hair cut I absolutely loved. I'm sold! Also, as a head's up -- if you book a future appointment on the spot, you'll get $10 off.

I recently went to Salon JuJu for a haircut and, now, I know I made a HUGE mistake by going to them instead of you guys. I got the WORST haircut of my life from JuJu and I will NEVER return there again. I just wanted to compliment your salon on its atmosphere, friendly staff and amazing assortment of products. Aside from getting a botched haircut from JuJu, I also got ripped off and paid A LOT more for Max Green shampoo and conditioner than I should have. From now on, consider me a loyal MOKO customer - definitely NOT JuJu. I can't wait until my hair grows back and I can get a haircut from a salon who knows what they are doing!

I have been a client of monique's for years and followed her to her moko. I cannot say enough about how beautiful the space is and all of the natural products. There is something really charming about moko and their friendly staff. I've had my eyebrows waxed, my hair done, and I'm going to schedule for a facial. For hair, Monique is the best hairstylist in Philadelphia! She fixed my hair years ago and I've been loyal ever since.

I had been wanting to try moko for a while and my husband recently bought me a gift certificate there, so I made an appointment. My experience was everything I hoped for and more. I called and made an appointment and the front desk person was very courteous about answering my questions. I decided to book a facial with kelly and a scalp treatment with monica? By the time I was done, I was melting. I had so much massage between my two treatments that I was super-relaxed. I loved my day! Thank you!

Pros: It smells wonderful inside, staff friendly, easy to find

I went to MOKO for the first time recently and I found exactly what I was looking for. I am so glad my friend recommended it to me. I bought some really great all natural products and I got my brows done by Gabrielle - they look great! I've gotten many compliments because of her! I also scheduled an appointment for a haircut with Monique; my friend got her hair done there the other day and loved it. If my haircut is half as good as the products and brow job I got I will be more than pleased. The atmosphere was great and the salon has plenty of products to look through, I wanted to buy up the whole store! Great find!

I had the opportunity to visit Moko through a family member. Walking into Moko's it was very calm and relaxing, something a mother of two children under two was looking forward to very much! The staff was extremely pleasant and informative. I had the extreme pleasure of being booked for a facial with Kelley. Oh my goodness what a wonderful experience! From the moment I stepped downstairs until I walked out, Kelley made my experience so fantastic that I cannot wait to return. My facial, which was so much more than that, was the most relaxing experience of my life. I truly left there a new and rejuvenated woman-not to mention that my skin looked the best it has in my 26 years of existence! I then went upstairs to get some facial waxing done. Another opportunity for Kelley to impress me. She did an amazing job on my eyebrows. I cannot get over them!! Ultimately I look and feel like a whole new person, and feel even better knowing all the products used on my face and body were good and good for me.

I highly recommend getting yourself to Moko for some self-spoiling. I look forward to being able to get back there again in the future. Many thanks again to wonderful Kelley who made my experience that much more pleasant.! Thank you Moko for giving this mommy some much needed relaxation! :)

I went to moko's grand opening party and had a lot of fun. Decided to make an appointment for services and was really pleased. Kelly did a facial on me and its the best one I've had and believe me I have had alot of facials!
I went to monique for a haircut and she gave me some nice layers and cut my hair dry, which added a nice touch. I highly reccomend moko. I bought some products too and I'll be back!

My husband and I just moved here from Denmark and I was looking for a good hair salon and colorist to color my hair. I found moko on Citysearch and had a great experience. Not only do I love the European design and feel of the space, but I really like that they carry organic beauty products and nice little spa items for the bath. I requested for Monique to do my color and cut, and she did just what I asked for. I found Monique and the staff to be very pleasant, professional and helpful. I live in Old City, so I will definitely make this my new place!

Last week I made an appointment at moko on the reccomendation of a friend. What a nice surprise! I made an appointment with monique for highlights and a haircut and for Gabrielle for a brow wax. I must say that my brow wax was the best I've had . Gabrielle was really gentle and friendly and described what she was doing the whole time. Afterward she even applied makeup and consulted with me on new colors to use.. I went to monique and she suggested some golden highlights and a bob cut. At first, I was nervous because I've never colored my hair before, but I was pleasantly surprised with the results. My color looks natural and today my husband commented on how nice my cut looks. I would definitely recommend this salon. I also left with some nice products. I bought some pretty eyeshadows that Gabrielle used on me and a scalp shampoo that smelled really good.

I went to Monique for a haircut today, and I cannot express how disappointed I am. I have been crying for the last hour, and finally got up out of bed to get my feelings off of my chest, and let others know to be careful when going to Moko for a new style.

I am having an emotional reaction, but when someone CHOPS OFF inches of your hair without your permission, and tugs and yanks at your hair for 45 minutes during the process, I think it's understandable.

When I came in, I showed Monique several pictures of haircuts that I had had in the past, and she and I both decided on a style that was a modified shag that would just touch the shoulders.

What I ended up with is a cut that looks like she put a bowl over my head and cut around it. The hair at the nape of my neck is less than an inch long -- it used to be below my shoulders. The longest hair on my head is a good 2 inches above my shoulders -- and I specifically commented on several occasions that it felt like she was cutting a lot, and that I did not want it to be short. I have a VERY round face, and this haircut just makes me look like a meatball with hair.

There is nothing that can be done to repair this haircut except wait it out. In addition to Monique's inability to cut my hair properly, her cutting style is very rough. Most stylists pull down on your hair at times to make sure that the sides are even. But Monique must have yanked my hair down about 50 times - I swear I had to take an Advil when I got to dinner. I almost thought that she was doing it on purpose, because in my 44 years of getting haircuts I have never felt such vigorous pulling and tugging! l will NEVER return to this salon.

I have thin, fine hair which used to be below my shoulder with some nice waves. What I have now is a bowl cut that is only 2 inches below my ears and shows a lot more of my scalp because of all the razor work Monique did.

I will NEVER return to this salon.

Cons: Rough treatment, cut did NOT match what we discussed

I got my hair cut by Monique and I could not have asked for a better job. I did some research on "green" salons in Philadelphia, but it is slim pickins'. Finally, though, I found the real deal - MOKO offers GENUINELY safe, environmentally friendly, natural products and services! The staff is very pleasant and willing to help. In addition, the experience was educational, fun AND relaxing. I left with some great natural products - go for the Max Green products, they're awesome!

If you want "Color and Cut by someone (MONIQUE) who has the Expertise, Knowledge of Products, Attentiveness to Service, and possesses the Charisma that entices you to return again and again for the Ultimate in Personally Gratifying --one on one, genuinely sincere-- Experience", you want to visit MOKO. This is, without a doubt, the most attentive, knowledgeable, and refreshing establishment in Old City---- they have what it takes to make YOU feel 'special'. The products are all organic (and really 'fresh and innovative' when listening to the descriptions by a well-educated staff) whether it's hair care products, makeup, or skin & body. Based on a scale of 1 to 10---- I give it a "15"!

I absolutely adore this new addition to old city. It's really beautiful on the inside and the staff is really friendly. You don't feel intimidated when you walk in, which is nice. I decided to get my haircut by Monique and it was a pleasant experience. She did a great job. I also love the fact that I can buy beauty products and makeup here...something previously missing from the neighborhood. Keep up the good work!

Located on a beautiful Old City block, this place is so pleasantly different from most hair salons. Here, all products are thoroughly selected from a bunch of organic/natural retailers' lines; you won't find noxious chemicals anywhere near your head. Monique always does a fantastic job with my hair and is generally a delightful person. Dawn did great with my make-up and taught me techniques that I am now using myself; very professional and totally unlike the Clinique counter ladies at the department store whose sole mission in life is to sell you as many products as possible. Overall, a beautiful and happy place, I love going there.
