Ive been going to Alberto for over 15 years. Have followed him from Bala to Jenkintown to Manyunk and finally to Glow for the last few years. I always know I can count on a great cut, and now that Im in my 50s, fabulous color!\r

before a friend recommended Glow to me, I had been to about 5 different hair salons in the philadelphia area, and i wasn't satisfied with anyone of them enough to make a second appointment. However, after one visit to Glow, I was sold. If

Wow, How negative of glow,so obvious who wrote that, the bitterness never ends, just can't let go and so immature to attack someone like that..They should move on ,she has. I guess they never learned if you have nothing nice to say don't say it at all. Oh well now you understand why she left. She's been gone for sometime and they are still harassing her . MEAN, MEAN,MEAN, it'll get you know where. I guess it's eating him inside even though she's has not been there since August.Maybe he has a personal problem, I feel sorry for Glow and the person who wrote it. SO childish. I wish them peace and can get over it.

If you are looking for color, cut or even just a blow out, Glow is definitely the salon you should be calling! Between the great atmosphere and the energetic stylists and workers, it feels more like visiting friends than having a hair

I have know Carla Barone for 8yrs or so, and I actually worked with her @ Glow Salon, for 2yrs, and in that time quickly found out why she has been styling hair for over 20 yrs!! She is amazing, very detail oriented, Fun and truly loves her passion! I am so excited she has decided to take the next step, and really let her artistic abilities shine!! Wishing you all the best!!!!

Carla Barone, know to many as the patron saint of fabulous hair, has moved!! Carla is now at 4430 Main Street in Manayunk. Her new salon is called BARDOT. Just as Carla made Glow Salon the best, she has now moved on to bigger and better things. Bardot will no doubt be the best salon in Philadelphia!!!

I've been a proud patron of Glow salon since it doors opened 8 years ago. I'd flown 4 times a year from CA to PA just to get my hair done by Alberto, who is the most talented and knowledgable hair artist I've met. This is a very upscale and modern salon with excellent service, and very professional but friendly atmosphere. For over two decades I've been looking for someone who can work with my unruly hair here and haven't been able to find it. Glow has always made me glow like no one can. So, if you want expertise, honest and the best hair ever you go to the masters at GLOW! You don't know me, but you won't regret trusting me on this.

I recently started going to Glow salon and I love it. I am always in Manyunk for business so I called to make an appt on a referral from a client to sit with Alberto. I had a great experience from start to finish. The front desk staff greeted me with a smile when I checked in. No sooner had I sat down Albertos assistant called me back. Before she washed my hair, Alberto came over to introduce himself and hear what I wanted to do with my hair. Despite not being able to articulate exactly what I wanted Alberto was able to read between the lines I have medium thickness, short hair. I am used to going to a barber and was hesitant to use a male stylist due to the fact that they dont clppers all all the time. I was blown away with Albertos ability to give me an actual hair cut,not just ashape up My cut is great! He he cut it just right so I'm able to blowdry and have some volume. What topped it off was that while he was cutting I asked him how to get shine in my hair. All of the products that say they give shine just make my hair flat. Alberto suggested that I get a glaze. I was thrilled! He put the glaze on and blew my hair dry. It's been 3 weeks since my appt and I still see shine and my cut looks like it was just done. I will be back in 4 weeks to see Alberto again. I highly recommend the salon, Alberto especially!! He s extremy virsatile with whatevr type of client sits with him not to mention a pleasure to be around

I have been a proud patron of Glow Salon for years and years. Carla is fantastic but under the new management the salon is long past its glory days. On May 17th a fellow reviewer wrote "I would follow Carla anywhere" and that is exactly what I recommend you all do. Carla's technique and skill are beyond even the most competent of competing hair stylists in the area and no one else can even begin to ATTEMPT to compete with Carla's heart, work ethic, or the unique and charming atmosphere which she is committed to producing. Glow Salon is no longer the establishment that it once was. The once outstanding treatment of clients is no more, perhaps because Carla has moved on to bigger and better places, just down the street at her new salon Bardot. Carla promises the perfect hair styling, Keratin treatment, or whatever else you may desire for your hair. The new establishment not only boasts eight hair cutting stations, three sinks, but also "Spa Day" and an in-house masseur, Matt Loeber. Bardot promises to be the Philadelphia Area's crowning salon. Complete with hair stylists, a masseur, waxing experts and more, head on over to 4430 Main Street, Manayunk.

Doesn't get any better than this. I've been going to Carla for nearly 15 years. When I walk into the Salon I ask her what she will be doing..because at that point, it's her hair :) My hair is naturally thin and frizzy. Carla makes it look straight, sleek, and smooth. The best part is that she shows me how to take care of it and maintain it so that I look great in between visits. I would follow Carla anywhere.

Carla is amazing! After 30 years, my search has ended for a hair stylist! The entire salon staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Also, for the quality of cut/style and service the price is extremely reasonable! I would recommend this salon to anyone and everyone!

Carla Barone's Glow Salon is the best of its kind in Manayunk. Carla's knowledge of hair-styles puts others' to shame and her charisma and personality are only icing on the cake.
If you are not getting your hair cut at Glow Salon, you are not getting your cut right!

When you've had your hair done by Carla, you walk out looking as if you've just had your hair done by a famous stylist from Beverly Hills.

Located on Main st. in Manayunk. Very convenient to get to with great attractions nearby. Public parking lot directly across the street. You can have lunch or grab a water ice while waiting for your hair to process.

A very good friend of mine has been telling me "go see Carla." I was reluctant because I didn't want to go behind my hair stylist's back. I'm so happy I finally made the transition. My hair has never looked so good.

Carla is knowledgable in ALL aspects of hair treatment. She really knows her stuff on coloring, hair straightening and extensions.

I call her the professor of hair care.

Actually in my case, I had the pleasure of meeting Carla Barone (owner of the salon), 17 years ago.

I hired her to work in a Salon that I was managing. At that time her knowledge and creativity astounded me, so I snatched her up immediately.

She brought with her an amazing talent which was backed by a never ending thirst for knowledge, and superior care of her clients, and a kind hearted way about her that truly made it a joy working with her.

To no surprise, in a few years Carla ventured out and opened Glow Salon.

She is a colorist that has a keen eye for matching color tones to a persons skin tone, creating gorgeous rich color, that works beautifully in combination with her clients complexion.

Her cutting technique is forward, and advanced and changes based upon texture and growth for each individual client. She knows what and what not to do based on each clients specific hair needs.

Since I worked with her, Carla has now mastered the technique of hair extensions. And offers the latest in hair straightening at her Salon as well.

I recommend anyone looking for an experienced well rounded stylist, with a "Shear Genius" of her own, visit Glow Salon, you'll be happy that you did

I have been going to Carla for my hair for as long as I can remember. She is literally the only person I trust to do my hair, and what she does is magic. My hair used to be frizzy and unmanageable. Now it is silky smooth and naturally dries perfectly. The bioionic and keratin treatments that Carla uses do wonders, and she knows exactly what to recommend and when, based on the state of your hair.

I do not live in the area anymore, but I always take the time to go to this salon for all of the above reasons. I have recommended this salon to family and friends, all of whom have been thrilled with the results!

I just can't say enough good things about Glow. They are always on top of latest and most innovative trends and products, the staff is warm, funny and attentive. But I have been coming coming back for at least 10 years because of Carla. I travel allot, and get compliments and inquiries about who cuts my hair all over the country and the world.
My hair is short and cut to look like an updo in such such a flattering way that strangers approach me regularly and ask me where I got it cut. And no one can believe it when I tell them that the dark brown color is anything but natural, and that my hair is actually completely gray.

I my rescinded my prior stellar review on 8/22/10, the day I wrote this update...

If you take the time to read the old reviews on this page, you will realize that the reason why Glow has such a high rating, is because Carla Barone is a hair goddess. However, she has left Glow and opened an even nicer salon at the better end of Main Street called Bardot. My strong recommendation would be to follow Carla there--she is literally the best in the city, state, coast, etc. I've not heard good things about Glow since she's left.

I recently switched Salons and came to Carla as a new client who needed Color. I went to someone else before I knew about Carla, so she had to correct that problem as well. Of course I was a nervous wreck, but Carla accessed my hair, worked her magic, and out I glided, Blonde again. Amazingly, she finished the appointment earlier than she thought she would. For the past few years, I had tried to grow my hair about four inches longer than it was. At the last Salon, my hair would break off at the ends in between each color treatment. Now it has actually grown a few inches!! Carla recommended a natural shampoo and conditioner, and it actually works for my hair. This lady knows her stuff. Do not make the same mistake. Go to her first, now that you know about her. If I had known, I would have........

I have to agree with all of the other positive reviews on the page - Carla Barone is The Patron Saint of Hair!

My first two visits to Glow were very good. Carla cut my hair so well, probably better than I had ever had it done, and it grew out absolutely beautifully. So needless to say I went back a third time. I don't know what changed. but there was NOTHING pleasant about my experience. First of all I waited OVER 20 minutes to be washed. After my wash, Carla sat me down in her chair. She then proceeded to leave me for another 10 minutes to attend another client (I guess she was double booked). Half way through my cut she left me AGAIN FOR ANOTHER 10 MINUTES. I am a very patient person and at this point I was getting heated. After my cut she proceeded to dry my hair. Since this was my third time to her, I knew the typical routine. She cuts my hair wet, dries it, and then cuts it dry at the ends to take out the bulk. I'm not an idiot and I guess she thought I wouldn't notice, but she cut ONE SIDE OF MY HEAD when it was dry, then realized her OTHER CLIENT was waiting and told me she was done without cutting the other side. The whole time she was with me she was rushing to get back to her other client. The experience was really terrible. I will never go back to this salon again.

I recently experienced my first visit to Glow and have never felt the way I felt when I left the salon that day. I was scheduled with Borica (pronounced Boritsa) and was a bit skeptical because I had never had a guy hairstylist before. He immediately spent the time to talk to me about exactly what I wanted and listened intently (which has not always been my experience). He even brought the color swatches over to educate me on hair color, which nobody had done in over 10 years of getting highlights and color. Then, while I was already impressed, I had a blast throughout my appointment given that his personality is bursting with energy, optimism, and humor. I got the sense that he really cares about people and is highly invested in making evey client leave with having realized their own individual possibilities of confidence and beauty. It was like a tiny 5-star vacation from life that left me feeling completely renewed and rejuvenated!

Glow uses a Hair Straightening System that I had tried previously while living in LA. I was hesitant to have my hair straightened by someone new yet unable to face another humid Philly summer with pouffy, frizzy hair. So I contacted Glow and made a consultation appointment with Carla. She is wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable and detail oriented. We discussed what I wanted, scheduled a hair cut, then the following day straightened and styled my hair. I left Glow with the best hair ever. The cut is flawless and I can readily recreate the style at home, my hair is shiny and healthy and now I have no more bad hair days. Glow rocks.

I had always had long hair but decided to cut it for a change...although it looked really nice for a while I realized it was annoying to wait to grow them out and the maintenance was too much for me. I decided on extensions and went to see Carla at Glow Salon and it was the best decision i ever made. She was so nice and had so much experience with doing extensions and knew exactly what she was doing. A couple of days later at a spa, a hair stylist there looked at them and was amazed by how they were done and said its the best work he's ever seen in philly and I def. have to concur. I traveled right after i got them and it was sooo easy to maintain and it looked GREAT! i blew dried it, curled it and it worked better than my real hair! If you're thinking of getting flawless, natural looking extensions Carla is the person to see. I know how nerve wrecking and scary it is to find someone out there that does a good job but with her you're def. in great hands. Thanks Carla!!

I had always had long hair but decided to cut it for a change...although it looked really nice for a while I realized it was annoying to wait to grow them out and the maintenance was too much for me.

One of my best friends from the Jersey shore, where I live, recommended Carla at Glow Salon when I mentioned to her I wanted a fun new color and style for my hair. It was a little ways to travel for a hair cut, but trusting my friend?s recommendation and being frustrated with other salon results, I visited Carla. Four years later, I can?t imagine going to anyone else!

Time after time, I?m impressed with her commitment to perfection and natural chic talent & stylish recommendations. After she nursed my hair to good health, she recommended hair extensions to help make my dream for long beautiful sassy hair come true. She?s an expert at blending color as well cutting and blending the extensions in with your own hair. I thank the fashion angels often for Carla and hair extensions!

Carla is the bomb! I was looking for a hair stylist for over two years when I decided to check out Glow Salon. I was NOT disappointed. Carla is absolutely amazing. She can really size up her clients as to what they are looking for with their hair.The most important quality for me in a hair stylist is how much time the person takes on my hair. Carla takes a lot of time on my hair whether it is a simple cut, color, or blowdry. I feel completely satisfied with GLOW and I would highly recommend Carla to anyone who wants to achieve life long healthy, good looking hair. Carla is better than therapy...check her out.

Like other reviewers, I thought genetics had doomed me to a lifetime of thin, flat hair. Of course I was excited when beauty magazines started publicizing hair extensions as a possible alternative for the hair-challenged, but even then I had concerns: Would they look crazy-unnatural? Would they cause irreparable damage to my real hair? Would taking care of them be a nightmare? I met with Carla Barone, owner of Glow Salon in Manayunk, and she promised me that I could have all the fabulousness of long, thick hair with none of those downsides. And she delivered on that promise big-time. I finally had the gorgeous, red-carpet hair I had always wanted. It looked beautiful and natural, and I enjoyed them so much that I have become a regular at Glow, getting my extensions "renewed" every seven months for the past four years. For me it's been a great investment, and, as far as I'm concerned, Carla Barone is the patron saint of great hair.

Glow is a fabulous salon. My experience there was great. My haircut was PERFECT and the people that work there are awesome. It was so relaxed and friendly and I loved being there. They listened to exactly what I wanted and when I left I couldn't have been more pleased. I will definitely go back and that is now my new salon. I highly recommend you try it out.

I've always wanted long thick beautiful hair, never thought I would have it but after talking to Carla owner of Glow Salon . She convinced me to try hair extensions, and I truly love it, my hair is long thick and now always beautiful, my bad hair days are over, never in all my life did I ever thought I would have hair like this.
I went to Las Vegas after that and went to a salon at the Bilagio. The Stylist there could not believe how natural it looked and said it was the best hair extensions she had ever seen. she has been there for 15 years so she has seen her share of extensions. I highly recommend Carla, she made it painless and wonderful., not to mention how wonderful her staff was. What a great salon.
Thankyou, thankyou Carla. You truly are the best.

Going to Glow Salon has changed my life. I never had what i consider nice hair so i kept it really short. Carla Barrone owner of Glow took me on a life changing hair journey using hair extensions. I was very hesitant at first but Carla introduced me to the idea of hair extension. i love having hair extensions. i went from having really middle aged short hair to having a look that looks awesome. It is so easy to maintain and it actually works so much better than my actual hair. The color is also outstanding. I always wanted blonde beachy hair and now i have it all thanks to Carla Barrone. I highly recommend taking the chance at a completely different look You will love it as i do. I also love the salon everyone is so nice.

**I must edit my previous review - Carla Barone, the patron saint of fabulous hair, has opened a new salon!!! Carla has moved to 4430 Main Street in Manayunk. Her new place is called BARDOT and is the new fabulous spot in Phila!!!

this salon is by far the best in philly. it has all the upscale products mixed with a hip and trandy atmosphere. The owner, Carla Barone, is a miracle worker! Aside from being an amazing colorist and stylist, she introduced me to the bio ionic straightening system. I think the last reviewer put it best when she said it's like plastic surgery for your hair! After years of flat irons, hair-dryers, millions of products, and a wardrobe of hats for those humid rainy nights, i finally tried the bio ionic. After this straightening treatment, my once curly, frizzy hair actually air-dries straight and full of body. this is NOT like japanese straightening systems!!! My hair still has a ton of body, but not does not even frizz at the beach, in the rain, or in a club!!! before bio ionic, i would spend about 2 hours straightening and styling my hair.... but if there was ANY humidity or moisture in the air my hair would be a total mess. Now it does EXACTLY what i want it to do in a fraction of the time and it stays that way!!! my hair routine went from about 2 hours to straighten my hair to about 10 mins!!! i am so happppy~!!! my life has changed thanks to carla and the bio ionic straightening system!!!

for the best hair treatments in town go to glow salon and ask for carla (the owner)!!!

after many years of difficult to manage, thick hair, that frizzed at the mention of philadelphia humidity, my amazing stylist, Karla, at Glow, suggested I try bio-ionics. This is like plastic surgery for your hair. My hair shines, I can wear it poker straight, or with some way, doesn't look flat like the Japanese treatment. It's been over 6 mos. and it's still perfect, even on my color treated hair. So great my daughter also had it done.

Glow is a great place to get a hair cut- i go to Tiffany and she is very friendly and gives and honest opinion. not too expensive! The atmosphere is ok- some friendly some snobby. but overall great place to go.

Great place for waxing! Really like that they use "hard wax" instead of the kind that requires cloth strips. Very please with everything!
