Bruce is simply the BEST! I love the fall/winter look Bruce gave me! My color looks amazing, and I get compliments on my haircut all the time now. It's so nice to not have to worry about what your hair is going to look like after leaving the salon... I have complete confidence in Bruce. He is extremely talented and proves it every time he does my hair.

My search for the best hair stylist is over and it ends with Bruce! I recently moved to the area and the dreaded search to find someone to cut my hair was on. I tried 4 other places before going to Bruce. My hair lacked style and just wasn't working for me. It seemed as though I couldn't get a decent haircut from anyone I tried. I pretty much new immediately that my haircut with Bruce was going to be different. He knew exactly what needed to be done based off of my hair type, shape of face, and the input I gave about what was frustrating me about my current hair style (or lack there of). He gave an amazing cut and even took the time to style it a few different ways to show the versatility of my new haircut. It's been 3 weeks now and my hair is still working for me. It's easy to style and seems to just fall into place. Can't wait to go back and have color done, too. I drive over an hour to have Bruce cut my hair. So completely worth it!!!

Bruce is the most talented colorist. I had my hair colored at top salons like Oribe in Miami and Oscar Blondi in NYC before I found Bruce in Philadelphia. I fly to Philly to get my hair colored. He is very talented and a color genius. I

Bruce was absolutely amazing!!! Over the past couple years I have been bouncing around trying to find my "go-to stylist". I have been to some of the "best" salons that Philadelphia has to offer and none of them could take my near black

Bruce is the best! Seriously..no joke! His talent with color and cuts, his honesty..beyond anyone I've ever let touch my hair. I trust him. No higher compliment can I give. He never over ""trims"" my hair like so many have before. That is just one of so many reasons I've not been tempted to let anyone touch my hair since finding him. 6 years and still in love with what Bruce does for me! I drive well over an hour to see him now that I don't live in Philly but his results are soo worth the trip!

So I am one of those loyal clients who paid top dollar in a top of the line salon who's name ( of which I will not mention) was just cool to say. I really wanted to love my color and didn't really want to give up on the colorist I used for a very long time of whom I needed to book with 8 weeks in advance as if my own schedule isn't busy enough! The problem was my hair color wasn't great anymore and I knew it. I stopped hearing the usual compliments and started seeing the inconsistency and missed spots. After giving my colorists the benefit of the doubt... THREE TIMES I said done which brings me to Bruce Slemmer at Beans Beauty on Chestnut. After a lengthy consultation which was impressive all by itself I decided to give him a shot. People raved about his mad genius approach although still skeptical I let the artist do his thing. All I can say is that after 4 hours of corrective color and 100 or so foils later I am not happy but estatic with my color. He is a true blond colorist guru who loves what he does who made me feel like i was his only client. Mad genius? I LOVE him!!!! He is the sweetest and proud to say my new colorist!

Truth be told, we all want to be blonde (or at least think that we could pull it off!) Even in a city as large as Philly it is extremely hard not to be cornered by the black haired, black tee shirt brigade who thinks that blonde is one color!\r
Bruce Slemmer understands color and how to make each woman an individual and play off of her hair texture, face structure and lifestyle. You don't leave Bruce feeling like a Stepford wife with the faux Palm Beach blonde of every other woman over 40 in the city. He tones to PERFECTION!!! He makes you the beautiful blonde that you feel you were born to be. \r
No damage, no frizz and no unwanted brassiness. He doesn't try to hawk product at you but will recommend the essentials necessary for you to keep looking salon fresh.\r
I have been in the city for three years and have tried all of the Philly hair ICONS and can tell you that Bruce is the best and I know I want the best! Don't you?\r
\r
Center City stylists are going to have to up their game to keep from losing clients to Bruce......because he is back with a vengeance! and armed with a vicious blow dryer! (BLOWOUTS by BRUCE are AMAZING!)\r
See you at Beans (I will be the girl with the great blonde hair :-)

I have been going to Bruce for almost 2 years now and he has completely transformed my hair! When I first found Bruce, my hair was overhighlighted and over bleached and breaking near the root! I was devastated and desperate to find someone who would help me get the best color and make my hair healthy! Bruce listened to what I wanted, told me his plan, and two years later, my hair is incredibly long, healthy and a beautiful blonde color! My hair has never been healthier! It was the best decision I ever made to go to Bruce! I am so comfortable when I go, that I don't have to worry about the color or what he is doing because I trust him 100% and know that my hair will turn out great! Now that he is at Beans in center city, its so convenient and easy to get to! And it's great to walk through Beans as you leave as you have access to thousands of great beauty products too!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Michael for bringing Bruce back to Beans. My mom and I have been with Bruce for 6 years now and we are both so happy that he is back at Beans.

For all of you that don't know, Bruce and Beans is the perfect combination.

Bruce is the ultimate - a stylist who can both cut and color with the best the fashion world has to offer. What is amazing about Bruce's talent is that he can handle it all - for my mom, he gives her a precision cut - for me, cuts and colors my naturally curly hair so that each time I love my hair - and I am jealous of the healthy blondes that leave his chair!

And did I forget to mention, Beans has all the products any girl or guy could ever want.

Make an appointment with Bruce - it will be you best decision this holiday season!

Thank goodness Bruce is back at Bean's. He is withut a doubt the best colorist for blondes in the city. His skill and attention to his clients is unprecedented. His blonde is amazing. You leave the salon with geourgeous pale blonde shading this is stunning. I was at a loss when he was out of Center City, but am thrilled to bits that he has returned. Try him, you will NOT be dissapointed!\r
\r
P.S. As a bonus, he is a great guy, too.

I have followed Bruce 4 years. He is the only stylist that knows how to cut curly hair. My hair always looks fab! Out of all the salons I have followed him too the shampoo bar is the best. Right off the highway - great location with street parking. I drive in from Delaware n I hate dealing with center city parking and traffic. Great coffee shop across the street is a plus! U go Bruce!

Finally got in to see Bruce at his new salon (Shampoo Bar). I have followed Bruce to three different salons. I hope he never gets too far away from me. I drive an hour each way just for his special magic. Bruce is the RARE combo of great colorist AND amazing stylist. His blowouts will make you feel like a celeb! He is the KING of Blonde, and fabulous at other colors too.

The new salon is very nice. A block away from Tacconelli's Pizza. The salon was easy to find and it was a joy not to have to pay extra for parking. I love having Bruce all to myself on the second floor. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

I have been following Bruce since 2000, He is the only one that can give me that beautiful blonde natural look and cut my very difficult hair. I recently went to his latest shop, Shampoo bar salon & spa on E. Somerset Street in Philly. It was so easy to get to and much quicker then past salons. I was a little Leary of where it was located, but Bruce assured me it was a nice and a up and coming neighborhood (Port Richmond). So I ventured there, there is plenty of free parking right out front..no more paying 20 bucks to park. It is a nice open area with homes going for 300,000 and full of nice trees The salon is beautiful and everyone is so friendly, Bruce is located up stairs, it was the one salon I felt most comfortable at, with nice big windows. I felt like i just wanted to move to the area He uses all the top of line products, which makes a big difference. There is a great restaurant across the street called Hinge..Highly recommend. Tacconellis Pizza is only a block over. I absolutely love this shop and location, so if your are having second thoughts about going...don't, just go, you will love it, and have lunch across the street while there. No worries at this location and I am from the Langhorne area, not a philly person at all, it's right down 95 off Allegheny Ave.. I am telling you,,just go,,you will be impressed and glad you made the trip. :) Deb McK

I highly recommend Bruce Slemmer for expert hair coloring and styling!! I have followed Bruce since 2007, and I can honestly say that he has totally transformed my hair style and color and to the point where compliments are the norm and bad hair days are a distant memory. I recently visited Bruce at his newest location,""The Shampoo Salon & Spa"" in Port Richmond. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the Shampoo Salon & Spa is only 1 1/2 miles north of center city Philly and is nestled in a cute gentrified area (homes selling upwards of $285,000) that has lots of free parking. There is also very easy access to I-95 and the NJ bridges. For those who haven't been to the new location yet, the Shampoo Bar and Spa is a modern shop where Bruce is featured on the second floor. I absolutely love the weekend hours due to my hectic work schedule. Bruce is a very gifted genius when it comes to hair. He is very artistic and takes everything into consideration - skin tone, face shape, life style, color shades, hair texture, and very patiently explains everything to you in order to achieve an incredible, amazing hair style, color, and look for you. I'm simply blown away by his work! Believe me, you will NOT be dissappointed!! \r

I am one of Bruce's new clients and I can't even begin to tell you what a woderful stylist he is! I have very difficult hair to work with- dark, curly, and unruly. I have spent years fighting nature in my attempy to wear my hair long, blonde, and straight. I began to get frustrated with my color never looking quite right. Thankfully, I found Bruce in my search for the ultimate colorist to give new life to my hair. \r
\r
I have been to many salons and hve seen many stylists and i must say, Bruce is fantastic. From the firt time i sat in his chair, he listened to everything i had to say. He then spent 5 hours correcting my color to transfom it from brassy with dark roots, to the perfect shade of blonde for my skin tone. I was most impressed with the fact that HE worked on my hair for the entire time (no assistants applying color, etc). He worked tirelessly to get my hair just perfect. I walked out of the salon thrilled with his work. I knew I'd be back for more!\r
\r
I then followed Bruce to his new location at Shampoo Bar, where he is now featured upstairs in a heavenly spa-like setting. My second visit with Bruce was even more amazing! He helped me find the right products for my fragile hair, while making my blonde even more perfect. Bruce is a true genius and will stop at nothing to give you the hair you've alwys wanted. Run, don't walk to shampoo bar for your appointment with Bruce!!

Bruce will rock your hair!
I first got my hair done by Bruce a couple of months ago and he will now be the only person I let touch my hair from now on! For the past 5 years or so I have had an auburn/red color in my hair that I have gradually been trying to get rid of and if anyone knows hair you know that red is impossible to get out of your hair especially when you want to go blonde. Every time someone would try and fade my red out with blonde it would come out yellow and orange and it felt like I was never going to see the color that I wanted. I had heard about how great of a colorist Bruce was so I figured I would give him a try and it was the best decision I have ever made for my hair! I told him what I wanted and he knew exactly how to get my color the way that I wanted it. He turned my color from a yellow/orange mess into a beautiful white blonde and I love it!! With out a doubt the best colorist and stylist I have ever been to!

Bruce goes ABOVE & BEYOND!!!

I have been getting my hair highlighted blonde for 10 + Years. No one has EVER gotten my blonde color right. It was either too golden, too ashy, too yellow - something was just always off!

Well someone FINALLY got it right - BRUCE!!

First, the salon is great. Everyone was extremely friendly & made me feel right at home! Plus the place is super clean and really cute!

Bruce was great. He really spent the time with me explaining what he was going to be doing with my hair, the products he would be using, etc. His enthusiasm for what he does is amazing! He is so much fun to chat with too!
Bruce gave me a full highlight with two different shades of blonde. I also got a treatment that he recommended for my hair because I have curly hair + dye it blonde + straighten it which = very damaged hair!
As soon as I got back in the chair even with a wet head I could tell the color was FABULOUS. After he blew out my hair - I was literally speechless! I couldn't believe how amazing my color was. It looked natural and was the blonde that I had been trying to obtain for so many years! I really couldn't believe it! The treatment also was unbelievable! My hair felt so soft and was extremely shiny! Bruce worked his magic & literally transformed my hair! I walked out of the salon feeling like a million bucks!
Trust me -- Bruce is the guru of hair! You will NOT be disappointed!!!

As soon as I got back in the chair even with a wet head I could tell the color was FABULOUS. After he blew out my hair - I was literally speechless! I couldn't believe how amazing my color was. It looked natural and was the blonde that I had been trying to obtain for so many years! I really couldn't believe it! The treatment also was unbelievable! My hair felt so soft and was extremely shiny! Bruce worked his magic & literally transformed my hair! I walked out of the salon feeling like a million bucks!
Trust me -- Bruce is the guru of hair! You will NOT be disappointed!!!

After a 16 month stint out in California, I returned last July to the Philly area and decided I needed a new colorist and stylist for my hair. Not only do I have a good friend that has been using Bruce for a couple years, but I was overwhelmed by the positive reviews that I saw on this site.

Let me just tell you....I have not been disappointed at all!

I'm a natural brunette (pretty light in color) and had been sticking to the same cut and color for a while. Bruce was honest with me in my very first visit that I had been wasting money on doing a full foil every time. His technique and attention to detail helps to prolong the time between appointments. I hadn't been in since November 2010 and the color still looked natural and the roots were practically unnoticeable. When I went in yesterday, I told him I wanted to go SUMMER and he immediately knew what to do. I have this beigy, honey-ish, warm blonde hair now from the 2 different blonde highlights he put in my hair and it looks AMAZING!

He is well worth the money, especially since he'll direct you NOT to do too much each visit. It's natural and beautiful work and I get compliments on it all the time.

THANKS BRUCE!

Bruce is a color genius! I grew up as a blonde and always wanted to stay that way- We all know age changes that! Bruce found the perfect blonde for me- He truly took time to talk to me about my skin tone and facial structure to create a color and cut that was simply perfect! He did not push anything on me, including products- I arrived with a muddy color hair that I despised, and I left looking like a natural beautiful blonde. Bruce also took the time to show me how to dry my hair to prevent it from looking damaged. Bruce has amazing talent and doesn't leave it up to assistants to do his art! He's one of a kind and I'll drive the distance to see him! Tommi salon is lucky to have Bruce!

After reading the review for Bruce I could not agree more, he is the best hair stylist and colorist I have ever met. I have very thick natura lcurl hair the is very hard to manage and what he did to my hair was amazing! The color looks perfect and my curls look great. He also did my mom and sister's hair and there hair also looks amazing! I am going to recommed him to all my friends!!!

As every review has said, the man clearly has talent. That said, my experience couldn't have been better. I have dark blonde hair and really light skin. I went to another salon in Philly and wanted my hair toned down for winter. Instead of suggesting a few lowlights, I was talked into ""touching up my roots and then going down a color"". What really happened is that they bleached out my roots and then dyed my hair some hideous color that looked light brown with an orange tint! I went to Bruce and he explained that I simply cannot do ""warm"" colors...TRUE, it makes me look pale and pink at the same time. He also got me in the day I called for a consultation, told me what he suggested we do and the exact cost. Then he explained what he could do in future treatments and the cost of those. He managed to put in ""partial"" highlights to keep with my budget...but it was honestly almost a full head of highlights, definitely not partial! My hair looked 10 times better than when I walked in and the salon threw in a free conditioning treatment since I was a new customer and also gave me a $20 coupon for services the next time I visited! Everyone was so nice and I couldn't believe they got me in the next morning after the consultation. The total cost of partial blonde highlights (that were equivalent to FULL highlights at other places) was $145. I was going to the gym afterwards so I didn't get a blowout, but they did dry me enough so that Bruce could check that the color was right. Wonderful!

I second every great thing said about Bruce! I've followed him to different salons and have cheated in between with some not-so-great stylists that charge more than Bruce. He is hands down the God of blondes, and I can't say enough about his talent with those scissors - my thin long hair is completely transformed at the end of the session. My friends always compliment my hair after seeing Bruce, they says ""it's so perfect, like doll hair."" The best thing is he loves what he does, and it shows. I think his smile is just as big as mine when we're admiring his work in the mirror. And on top of all his awesomeness he's not a snobby City stylist! He's won awards and has high class clients but Bruce is a really genuine guy; he always makes me feel like an old friend :) I was totally surprised that he remembered so much about what I've blabbed in his chair these past 3 years! I would recommend Bruce to anyone and everyone, and that's why I took time out of my day and signed up on here!!! So if you're reading this and you've read the other reviews... what are you waiting for?!?! You won't be disappointed! And Tommi Studio is a lovely salon located in a great area of Philly and has a bunch of cool services available. Thank you Bruce <3

Stop wasting time and money with hair stylists that do listen and lack the talent and passion to color, cut and style your hair. Bruce will not disappoint you. My hair looks so natural, and I get compliments all the time. Bruce does not overbook clients so he gives you his full attention. Bruce also uses top quality products for healthy and long lasting results. Bruce is a genuinely nice person and his passion for his work is self evident. I always feel like a celebrity when I leave the salon. I am so satisfied with my hair. I was very frustrated with hair stylists in
Orlando, FL. I enjoy visiting Philly and tried a few salons before I discovered Bruce. My hair was damaged, and the color was not natural looking or long lasting. It turned brassy or the color was cheap and did not cover my grey. I also do not like booking a color appointment only
to have the stylist's assistant color my hair and still pay full price. I also do not like a hair stylist to cut inches off my
hair when I specifically state, I only want the split ends
trimmed or layers added to my hair when I state that I am
growing out my hair. Bruce cuts hair fantastic. I now have
volume and my hair is growing long with the monthly trim.
Bruce also does an amazing blow out. Call today and
book your appointment with this talented hair stylist. It is
worth flying to Philly for healthy beautiful hair!

I went to Tommi salon specifically for Bruce Slemmer because I heard of all his good reviews. I had long boring hair for the longest time but I was getting tired of it and just wanted a new look. However I didn't really know what to do with it. So I went to Bruce and told him my situation. He gave me some suggestions but he wasn't pushy at all like other stylist. He respects what you want and gets a sense of your style. So anyway he gave me a great short haircut that I must admit at the start I wasn't used to but now I really love. When I got to work everybody was raving about it. I had so many compliments from people! I was really happy. It also grew pretty well and was easy to manage. I totally recommend him. He's really a great stylist. :)

I went to Bruce because I was unhappy with the last color job I got. I read all the reviews and figured that all these people couldn't be wrong. So I booked the appointment and hoped for the best. What I got was so much better - really beautiful natural looking color - I went from dark brown to blond and it looks like I was born with it. He was great picking out a shade to compliment my skin tone. On top of that, he's such a nice guy with no attitude and reasonable prices. I can't recommend him enough.

Without a doubt Bruce Slemmer at T ommi Salon is the best colorists and hair stylist in Phila. I have tried every ""best of Phila"" and just resigned myself that my hair would never look good. I tried Bruce this summer for color and after our consultation I was confident that he would give me the color that I was searching for for over 20 years. It came out beautiful beyond my expectations, and even more amazingly held up perfectly till my next visit. The next time I had him cut it and again it was amazing. He showed me how to style it and every day after I style it it looks so great that I can't believe that it is my hair, I LOVE it. It looks as good at the end of the day as it does in the beginning.I have gotten more compliments since he has been doing it than in the last 20 years combined. He really understands color as well as face shapes. I am so glad I found him. My search is over.

I haven't had a haircut since 1997, I went to Bruce for an appointment and he took care of me and knew exactly how I wanted my hair to look. Bruce knows my hair and from now on I will be going to him for my appointments. He is precise and handles your hair with care, and Tommi Salon is a wonderful, relaxing environment to get your hair done at.

I've worked as a sales person at a salon before so I am used to getting a range of different haircuts with seasoned stylists. BUT I've never had an experience like the 1 I had with Bruce. He puts a lot of thought into your new look. It seemed that he wanted to make sure it wasn't fake looking, was manageable, and looked killer with your face structure. He really knows what he's doing. He explained everything during the consultation, treatment, and styling. He asked me about my current haircare and styling practices, not to sell me things, but to tailor the cut to my current practices. He showed me how to do quick and simple things to make it look good and then how to style it with a blowdryer. He explained my face type in conjunction with the right cut to match. P.S. best highlights I've ever gotten. The placement and width of each bundle of hair was perfect. It looked so nice and not fake!!!! Everything really suited me. Trust him and me when I say he's great. No regrets!

Do you dread all those trips to the salon with hopes and visions of that perfect cut/color only to walk out the door thinking you'd of been better off doing it yourself with a butter knife and $3 box of dye? Do you give that poor girl a tip anyway even when you wanna scream at her ""Seriously?!?!""? Ever fake a smile then go home and lock yourself in the bathroom to sob over your lost locks? Well FEAR NO MORE! Bruce Slemmer is the answer to all those years of heartaches, headaches, and hair styling woes.
I went to Bruce last August right before I left the state for my first year of college; BEST DECISION EVER. Note: Unfortunately, I didn't know about Bruce until I had the WORST experience (my first color) at Fresh (DO *NOT* GO THERE!!!! Hungover 20-somethings make you look like a mousy-skunk for $360), so I went to Beans to get that fixed.
I knew it was gonna be a challenge for anyone to correct that mess, but on top of THAT I went from newly dyed mud brown to blond. And I mean BLOND. And how did it turn out? Well I had to wait to go home to cry again, but this time tears of JOY!! I can't even begin to describe how wonderful of a job he did. The cut was PERFECT, the color? I had never ever ever everrrrr thought I could pull off blond until that night, and by the time I walked outside, I was rockin that *** like nobody's business (see my user photo, the night I had it done). Granted, the technique takes pretty long; my wonderful bf treated me to the cut/color and (God bless his soul) he came along, but he had to wait the 3+ hours of just tiny foil folding with nothing but chicky magazines to pass the time haha! Anyway, once you see what you turn into (and it is a transformation) you wouldn't have cared if it took 3 hours or 3 days. And yeah, it's pricey too, but also definitely worth it.
Hopefully I''l be going back for a cut soon, haven't looked forward to one this much until now!
Oh, and one more thing about Bruce; I was so worried about the color, I wanted so badly for it to look natural. Well Bruce is all about natural, he told me he even refused to color some girl's hair because she wanted it such a fake platinum blond! Haha I love this guy!
Ladies, say goodbye to all those nightmarish encounters! Bruce is a dream come true!
(Hey Bruce, I told ya I'd write a raving review, didn't I? Haha)

Pros: Fabulous Results, Atmosphere/Professionalism

Cons: Cost, Parking, Time-Consuming (All totally worth it)

Bruce is a hair genius, not to mention a life saver... especially when it comes to emergencies. I was a client of his at his previous salon and I had waited to make an appointment to get my hair highlighted right before I left for my wedding out of state. Long story short, I managed to get in touch with Bruce and he so nicely told me to come in the day BEFORE the Tommi Salon was even open! My highlights were, as per usual, utterly amazing.

As for Tommi Salon, the interior is fabulous. Bright, large windows, white and pristine... somewhat minimalist decor - very relaxing. The back has a large mani/pedi spa area. I think anybody who visits will be incredibly impressed! At least I was.

To sum it up, Bruce is a life saver, and gives the best highlights I've ever had (and I moved to Philly from Chicago where I never thought I would find anyone better than my previous colorist... and I have.)
I'll definitely be back to Tommi Salon for some spa treatments, too!

Bruce pretty much turned my boring brown hair into gorgeous blonde hair- perfect for the summer!
I actually brought in a picture of what I wanted to achieve, but was unsure as to the exact shade of blonde that would be best for ME. Bruce gave me a hair color that was so much better than the picture that I had brought in.
He also gave me a free conditioning treatment after the color, so I ended up leaving with hair that was softer & shinier than when i came in.
In terms of scheduling, he couldn't be any more accommodating. I requested a Sunday appointment a week prior & he was more than obliging with my hectic schedule.
The feel of the salon was luxurious and had a modern Zen feel to it, especially in the lobby.
Before I left, they handed me a gift bag full of goodies (coffee mugs, gift certificates, pens,..).
Overall, I was VERY pleased with my hair and the service I received @ Tommi Salon. I will most certainly be going back again.

Pros: Hands Down Best Colorist & Stylist

Bruce is a 10 star and a god send! I have visited many hairstylists throughout the years and he is by far the best. He is meticulous and spends his time. My hair had gotten super bleached blonde and all of the other hairstylists that I had seen (over 6) said that it would be impossible to put lowlights in my hair. Well guess what?? Bruce put lowlights and created the look that I have been wanting for years. I finally have blonde hair with hints of darker blonde. He created a beautiful and completely natural look. He also cut my hair super stylish. He was so knowledgeable about all areas of hair care and advise. I left my appointment with a whole new experience and knowledge that I never had before. I felt that I had taken a hair course after talking with him. He is simply the best! I am having my mom visit him and when I move I will travel to get my hair done by him.

I followed Bruce to Siojo which is a new salon in Olde City (3rd & Race). Very chic salon with a philosophy for being ""green"" as much as possible. Salon just opened days ago and I was very impressed. They will soon have great salon services but most importantly, they have Bruce! No one is more talented than Bruce Slemmer; he is an awesome stylist. I will not let anyone but Bruce cut my hair. Good luck to Siojo and best wishes to Bruce at the salon.

This is a repost of my first review...somehow it got deleted and I found it elsewhere online!! The post below this one is the follow-up to this post.

I went to Bruce after having my hair highlighted and roots touched up two days earlier at another salon in Blue Bell. When I walked in my hair was a horrible ashy/golden color (that may work for someone else - but not me - and it was NOT at all the color I wanted). To make a VERY long story short - Bruce spent the time to talk to me about what I wanted and how we could begin to take steps to get there. My hair was a bit fragile from the coloring two days before so there was only so much one person could do! Anyhow....I know I am on my way to the hair color I want (and need)! Looking forward to my follow up visit with Bruce. Oh, let me just quickly add that Bruce called me the next day to make sure I was happy with my color and if I wasn't he would gladly see me again to discuss/fix - whatever. He wanted me to be 100% satisfied. Being a blonde highlight junkie(he gave me a winter blonde look) - I was going to go in for more blonde around my face BUT - I realized my hair needed a break and that the next time around Bruce would be able to give me the color I have been searching for what seems like FOREVER! I would highly recommend Bruce to anyone looking for great color. Keep you all posted on my next visit!! Thanks Bruce!!! Lori Less

This is a repost of my first review...somehow it got deleted and I found it elsewhere online!! The post below this one is the follow-up to this post.

I went to Bruce after having my hair highlighted and roots touched up two days earlier at another salon in Blue Bell. When I walked in my hair was a horrible ashy/golden color (that may work for someone else - but not me - and it was NOT at all the color I wanted). To make a VERY long story short - Bruce spent the time to talk to me about what I wanted and how we could begin to take steps to get there. My hair was a bit fragile from the coloring two days before so there was only so much one person could do! Anyhow....I know I am on my way to the hair color I want (and need)! Looking forward to my follow up visit with Bruce. Oh, let me just quickly add that Bruce called me the next day to make sure I was happy with my color and if I wasn't he would gladly see me again to discuss/fix - whatever.

This is a follow-up post to my first experience with Bruce (see a great guy...a great colorist post above).

I wish anyone reading this could see the smile on my face today :-) - I LOVE my hair!!!! I went in for my follow-up appointment to let Bruce see and assess my natural re-growth and the condition of my hair since my last visit. This time around I was determined to get the face framing blonde highlights I craved while blending in my roots and partial gray re-growth. After getting to see how my hair reacts to toner (not so good) and bringing in actual pictures of myself ( in which I liked the color of my hair) Bruce was able to create the color and highlights that make me look forward to getting ready in the morning!!! I have to say that for the first time in a reallly, really, really long time - I love my hair!!!

Bruce, thanks for taking pride in your work (Bruce listened and worked with me for what must of seemed endlessly to him until I was 100% satisfied). Anyone out there that has been searching for a colorist who is knowledgeable and will take the time to give you what you want - look no further....Bruce IS that colorist. He also cut and styled my hair beautifully - I wish I could have him style my hair on a daily basis!

I know why Allure named him top colorist....He is simply AMAZING (and fun to spend time and talk to while having your hair done!! Thanks again Bruce...mwahh!

Pros: Bruce listens and takes pride in his work

Cons: For me only - travel time(from New Hope) ......but worth it!

I am SOOOOOO happy. I have never had the pleasure of such a great colorist / stylist. Bruce has transformed my overall mood--as well as my hair. I am exuberant and feel like a celebrity.\r
\r
Ok, I cannot say enough...Bruce inspires a confident mood and makes you feel truly beautiful. Feel assured that you are in the hands of the best colorist in the tri-state region. He promises you a superb haircut and blow-dry style as well!\r
\r
Trust your tresses to the hands of an absolute professional. He only does what he thinks will work and he uses his magic to make you feel special. He is an amazing guy with a unique personality. In two words, he is a Stellar - Stylist!\r
\r
My hair was dark brunette and I left the salon today as a classy blonde. If I may say so myself, several heads turned.\r
\r
Get very used to me, Bruce. I will always find you.\r
\r
Fond Regards,\r

Never has anyone highlighted my hair to such perfection! Not to mention the fabulous cut! Finally, a stylist who listens and understands what I am trying to accomplish. Thank you so much Bruce!

Pros: Best Highlights and cut

.

Bruce Slemmer is that rare combination of exceptional talent coupled with professionalism. I used to have the distinct pleasure of working with him. I can now write a review without it deemed a conflict of interest. \r
\r
I have been to many salons in my life. Some of them being considered to be the best in the industry. None of them came close to producing the results that I have seen at the hands of the skillful Bruce. His process takes everything into account: lifestyle, face shape, coloring, and hair texture. His color, cut and blowouts are like nothing I have experienced before. \r
\r
He has given me the most beautiful, shiny chocolate brown color. That's just the color! The cut and the blowout are equally amazing. I have gotten so many compliments from people in regard to my color and cut. My hair is fine and wavy= unruly. He has transformed my hair into an easy cut that I can wear both wavy and straight. \r
\r
To start with, when you sit in Bruce's chair your hair will get the attention it deserves, he makes sure of it! His mastery of hair is equally matched by his lack of pretense. Bruce is not someone you go to for just one discipline, such as color and then go to another stylist for a cut. He takes such pride in doing everything from start to finish. This really helps create an atmosphere where you don't feel like cattle that is being herded from stylist to stylist.\r
\r
I highly recommend Bruce Slemmer for anyone who seeks a new cut, color, keratin treatment, blowout. He really belongs in the league of Fekkai, Licari, Jonathan, Hershberger,etc. I say this because that truly is how good he is! Trust me, your hair will thank you for it.\r
\r
Lastly, as someone who worked with him he was an absolute pleasure to work with void of any drama. My hair and I miss him very much.

Pros: Best cut and color! Ever.

Cons: Zero. Absolutely none.

I have been getting my hair colored since I was 14. I love experimenting with new cuts & colors but after a while I gave up on trying anything new because even just getting a single process always ended in disappointment. I have gone to salons all over Philadelphia and the surrounding areas and never found a stylist that really impressed me.

I went to Bruce a little over a year ago and have not gone to anyone since. I have been blonde, black, brunette, red, had different color highlights, etc. I am finally able to experiment with color & cuts because he is fabulous at what he does. Since meeting Bruce I have had long hair, a short textured bob and everything in between and I have never been at all disappointed. He listens to what I want and makes it happen while still giving his own opinions and ideas on what will work with my face shape, overall look, lifestyle, etc. I have sent my friends and my mom to Bruce, each with looks and hair types far different from mine and they have all been beyond pleased with his work and continue to go to him. Whether I'm at bars, clubs, concerts, the mall or walking down the street, I always get stopped by people complimenting my hair and wanting to know who does it. I will NEVER go to, or recommend, anyone but Bruce.

Pros: fantastic hair!

Cons: nothing!

We moved to the Doylestown area from NY a few months ago. I'd had my hair done by a trusted salon for many years and liked the results. I'd googled salons in the Bucks County area to find someone comparable to what I'd had done in NY. From the salon I found, I got really bad results. I found Bruce Slemmer by talking with people in the area. My experience was as positive as it could be. A great, energetic person, warm and without any kind of pretense, he explained what he would do and why and then did it. The results are really fabulous. My experience with truly exceptional people is that they are rarely self involved or aloof. Bruce is that kind of person: someone you feel totally at ease with, whom you can trust and who is exceptionally talented with hair. Thank you so much Bruce!!!

Pros: Bruce Fixed My Problem Hair

.

All I've ever wanted was a lighter, but natural/believably-lighter looking hair color. My hair had become orange from the chemical straightening I've had done and... just this past March '09, I trusted a stylist from NE Philly, who normally straightens my hair and let her put some color in it that she said would liven it up.. it turned out GREEN. My hair needed help badly. \r
\r
At that point, I lost all trust in Salons (re: coloring) and did an extensive online search to find an expert in hair coloring. \r
\r
I discovered Bruce Slemmer from Beans.\r
\r
Even after reading all of the reviews online about Bruce.. i was honestly -still- VERY skeptical because my long hair is such a huge part of my look & I've cried before from bad hair disasters in the past. \r
\r
I was happily surprised that the receptionist at Beans was able to schedule me in for the day that I requested, which was less than a wk away. I was prepared, I did my research on the ins and outs of highlighting and my biggest fear was that i was going to leave the salon with thick streaks of bad color in my hair.\r
\r
On the day of the appt., I had 2nd thoughts about going in, the thought of calling in to cancel even crossed my mind. I wasn't sure if the risk of having it ruined during this socially busy month for me was worth it. \r
\r
I bit the bullet and took the chance! I was so anxious and a bit panicked.. that i wasn't even able to tell Bruce all of the things I DIDN'T want. I just blanked. Bruce's plans for my hair ""Sounded"" amazing, but I had to see the end result to believe it for myself. Conversation was really easy with Bruce as well, he gave me advice on everything from health to beauty. \r
\r
He took his time placing highlights and lowlights neatly throughout my hair. I could tell he was a perfectionist. I mentioned my stray white hairs around my part and he even assured me that he would take care of them. I have to admit, I really felt taken care of with Bruce, but still.. how would my hair turn out?- that was all that really mattered to me, in the end. \r
\r
When i finally saw the end result, I was speechless. I've never seen myself with sun-kissed, natural-looking highlights. Before, I had dull brown hair at the roots down to my shoulders and brassy hair from my shoulders all the way down my back. WOW! I left with stunning caramel highlights and amazing lowlights!!!!!\r
\r
I didn't even need to take out the online coupon that I had printed out. Bruce had ALREADY included the discount, without even a mention of the coupon from me. \r
\r
There's no question, I'd recommend Bruce to anyone looking for only the best!\r
\r
It must also be said, during the entire time (from color to blow-dry), no one but Bruce had touched my hair... and as it turns out.. no one but him ever will :)\r

Pros: Amazing Service with Amazing RESULTS!

Cons: That I didn't find him sooner!

I had been patonizing the same salon for almost 15 years and it was hard for me to admit that their approach to my hair just wasn't working anymore, The cuts were lazy and the color was, well, flat. \r
\r
And then, just about 3 months ago, I found Bruce Slemmer at Bean's and he has absolutely restored my faith in the artistry of hair. He is superb. He knows how to color and cut like no one else I have ever found. He methodically applied lowlights and highlights to give my hair dimension that I've never had before. He took his time, he was thoughtful, he talked with me... and it was as if he knew me from the moment I walked in the door. The cut was fabulous and the color was amazing. He really nailed it and I was thrilled.\r
\r
So I went back to Bruce just a few days ago for my second appointment, again for color and cut. I have to admit that I had been holding off in writing a review after my first visit because I really wanted to see how he would approach my hair the second time around. I didn't think it was possible but my hair turned out even better than I could have imagined! The color has such richness and the cut is perfect. I'm hooked.\r
\r
I would recommend Bruce and Bean's to anyone. There's no drama at this salon, just pure artistry and talent without the affectations that ruin so many others. \r

Pros: Pure Talent

.

I will admit that I was afraid to get my hair colored & cut. I have not had my hair professionally cut for over 15 years (I cut it myself), and I have never had my hair colored. I desperately wanted to cover my gray hair, but I was afraid to step into a salon. My biggest fears were: 1) that I would end up with hair color that looked like shoe polish ( I have dark brown hair) 2) that I would be told by a stylist that I would have to go much lighter due to the gray, and 3) that I could not keep my hair long because it was ""damaged."" All of these fears were dismissed by Bruce within the first few minutes of my appointment. Bruce suggested a chocolate brown color and the result is just spectacular. He assured me that the color would add warmth- but not ""red""- to my color, and that the ""toner"" would add incredible overall shine and subtle highlights to the previously gray hair. He was completely correct. My hair is so shiny and has a lot more complexity to the color. I also love the cut. He kept my hair long, with subtle layers, and angled side swept bangs. It took me a bit to agree to deviate from my usual straight across bangs, but he was right -again. I truly enjoyed this experience and highly recommend Bruce to anyone who is as anxious as I was. In addition to his obvious talent as stylist, he is a very warm and friendly person, and he has an incredible knowledge of the do's and don'ts of hair (and skin) care. Thank you so much.

Pros: Depth of knowledge & experience in hair coloring/styling/car

Cons: none at all

Manayunk is always a joy to go to. Beans is not only a awesome salon but the beauty store has it all. They keep their stylist up to date with the best products to use on clients and keeps their stylist up to date with the newest color and hair styling techniques. I've seen it with my own eyes. Bruce simply blew me away. His energy and attentiveness was amazing. I felt like I was the center of his world. He always made sure I was comfotable. My hair, OMG, simply beautiful. I went in with a head of a very deep burgandy colored hair with very dark ends and an inch of roots. I asked him what he could do to help me start going blonde again. He didn't even flinch. I was absolutley satisfied with the end result. My hair lightened greatly and he was able to mix it into the red in a way that it looked like I had him do highlights and low lights. I thought it would take forever to get the red out but he rocked it out. Not to mention, my hair still feels so healthy. I'm Just in awe. So is everyone else, I'm like permentaly blushing from all of the compliments.

I have had many apprehensions about my upcoming wedding but since Bruce came into my life all those have disappeared! After one appointment, I've gained complete confidence in my color and cut. I've never had as many compliments about my hair color and how the natural looking highlights bring out my best features. I finally LOVE everything about my hair!
