One of my favorite reviews which you can read below...
.......Ultra Hair Studio a locally owned business that makes Washington Square West a real neighborhood. A better neighborhood. They are as friendly as can be. They appreciate your business and treat you really well. They're warm and welcoming to every client who walks in. No pretensions. Their dogs are adorable. The salon is charming and creativly decorated.
You're supporting an independent business that sincerely cares about its clients, its staff, and its neighborhood. Love it! They also do great hair at reasonable prices!!!!!!!!

The music at the salon is great. They have a Bose docking station and let the clients share their music too. Ultra plays great music including lots of older punk, and some newer indie stuff, mixed with alternative, old school dance, pop, and techno....Random, good stuff to hear when they're chopping away at your head.
The salon is super clean. The salon's feel is kind of modern high-end salon meets kitschy retro.

All together, a color, cut and blow dry came to $100 which was totally worth it! I feel like a new person...which is good because I just got over an icky breakup and I need a good change.

After seeing reviews left by folks online I decided to give this place a try. I snagged a last minute appointment with Kristen for a haircut and style. She was very sweet and listened to what I had to say. We also had an awesome conversation. Most of all in the end my haircut was wonderful. I really enjoyed and appreciated my whole experience. She seamed very passionate about what she does and it shows in her work.

I always get a great haircut from Sharyn. She has been my stylist for a couple years. She has appointments after work and on Saturdays. This is a good place for men and women.

Nice experience.I went to Ultra last week for color and haircut. Everyone was extremely nice and professional. My hair looks great. Sharyn has been doing the whole office for years and we can tell you, her salon is well run. You won't be disapointed.

have been going here since they opened. You can always count on a great cut or color no matter which stylist you go to because Sharyn trains everyone and it shows. I went to Kristen, a new stylist and she gave me a layered cut with fantastic highlights! My roomate saw my hair when I got home and went to see Kristen and also got a great new cut! Good to have another talented stylist with a FUN personality at Ultra!!! I love this place. I really like how it continues to evolve- better stylists, new decor. Its just a great place to go get your hair done. Not snobby either. Very down to earth.

Pros: Aways great hair! Friendly and professional

Okay, today I went back to Ultra Hair for the third time to get my hair cut and I realized I never took the time to go online and sing its praises. I only go here to get my hair cut and never felt even remotely compelled to seek other businesses. I'm a graphic design student so money is tight but I swear that getting your hair done there is worth every cent!
I'm originally from NH when I first come to Philly I had no idea where to go for a decent hair cut. Some places I scouted out looked more like hospitals disguised as over priced hair salons and other locations you couldn't pay me to go into. However, my hair was getting shaggier and to quote Jack from 30 Rock, "Your hair is like your head suit."
One day I was walking back on Pine Street after an adventure from The Foodery and I spotted Ultra Hair. When you are spacing out and walking by on the sidewalk it can be easy to miss because it blends in with the rest of the store fronts. It looked clean, professional and approachable. Thank God. I went in, booked my appointment and a few days later I got the best haircut of my life. Let me repeat that. BEST. HAIRCUT. OF. MY. LIFE!
Everyone who works there is warm, chatty and amazing at their job. I felt completely at ease explaining what I wanted and I ended up with was a hair cut that not only fit with exactly what I had explained but turned out even better then I had anticipated. If you want to get your hair done somewhere without feeling harassed and walk out feeling like a model by all means, go to Ultra Hair Studio!

The salon is located on Pine St. in a great neighborhood. It is bright and upbeat and I didn't feel intimidated like I have in other salons.

I've had the cut for almost a week now and it looks good straight, curly, in a ponytail, etc. Awesome job.

I definitely want to make this my regular place, even though I have to take in the train from NJ, it's totally worth it. I finally found a place that does great hair and I don't feel intimidated by snooty salon staff.

So...after years of driving out to Harrisburg for a hair cut, I finally decided that I needed to give a philly stylist another try. I am very very very particular about my hair and I have had it long for years.

I decided to get it cut because I needed a change and I went to Kristen and I couldn't be happier. First she discussed what I wanted to do and, to my joy, she actually listened to me and I couldn't be happier with my new cut.

I loved that place, it felt like going to a friends house and hanging out....a perfect ten...I wouldn't go anywhere else

Pros: Great advice, good sense of what fits a person

.

Since I moved from Tokyo to the U.S. sixteen years ago, I have gone to countless salons (high-end-schmancy places, Japanese salons, etc.). Once you get used to the level/skill/sense of trend of Japanese hair styling, expectations are high and you become easily disappointed....and, perhaps like me, end up wearing hats all the time. Anyway, I read the reviews for Ultra (love the name) and made an appointment for my daughter Anya since I already had an appointment with a Japanese salon in D.C. Anya brought in a sketch and conveyed the usual, "wash-and-go, nothing fussy please." . Gia understood exactly what she wanted and gave her a gorgeous cut that is no fuss in the morning.

I was so impressed with Anya's cut that I cancelled my D.C. appointment and made one with Ultra. Gia and Sharyn gave me a great consultation and we were all on the same page. Gia gave me highlights, a gloss, and a cut. I walked out of there impressed, feeling fabulous and looking 10 years younger. So many compliments! We love the salon and love the people.... Sixteen years and many hats later...we finally found our salon.

Just had my hair cut at Ultra for the first time, and I loved the way I looked when I walked out of the salon. I felt like a sex machine and didn't have to go back and restyle my hair afterwards.

Sharon is hilarious and has had great training. She made my shaggy head look stylish, and it makes me happy.

I get a haircut twice a year and I ALWAYS make sure to go to Kristin. So friendly and listens to everything you want. She gave me some seriously amazing tips for styling my hair everyday and listened to everything I wanted. She never rushes and makes sure you are completely satisfied with the service. Sharon seems to be great too but I haven't had a chance to get a cut from her. Book a little in advanced, their customer service is great. I called once to book an appointment but was left with a voicemail, they called back immediately and were extremely accommodating. Nothing but good things to say about this salon.

This person was never in my salon, was not just " put" with another stylist, nor was she ever charged anything. I'm sorry for the miscomunication. I had a family emergency & did the best I could on short notice to make sure all my clients were covered for Saturday. Gia's haircuts are 35. Sharyn and Kristen- 55. WORKSHOPS are 25. We are very good at what we do but are human & have families just like everyone else.

I made an appointment with Sharon based on the reviews I read here. I spoke with Sharon directly and she was nice enough to fit me in on a Saturday at 4pm (later than usual operating hours). I thought that was great!

Then on Friday, the day before my appointment, the receptionist called and asked if I could come in earlier. I agreed and inquired on the pricing since it is cash only. She told me that Gia books for $35 a cut. I didn't have an appointment with Gia. Gia is a student /apprentice!And she does workshops for $25.

The receptionist explained that Sharon couldn't cut and color my hair because she had to leave early. So they PUT me with Gia.

How do you just move a client to not only another stylist but to a student without asking them? Then charge me more that the prices posted online? It is very difficult to get an appointment in the city on a Saturday and especially the day before!! I am very disappointed and will not go to such an unprofessional business.

Cons: They change your stylist without asking you

I got my hair cut here about a week ago and I'm obsessed with it! Before going to Ultra, I always used to hate going to get my hair cut because stylists would just chop it all off. I would always end up going home in tears so I would avoid getting my hair cut for as long as possible.

Going to Ultra has restored my faith in great stylists. I can't wait to go back and get another great hair cut!

If you're looking for a great salon, go to Ultra! The entire staff is awesome and you won't regret it.

I've had hair-salon phobia for most of my life - Ultra changed that! Sharyn is fabulous. She listens to what you want! In my experience, that alone qualifies the salon for 5 stars! She also takes into account what you're willing to do for upkeep. She does amazing highlights (mine lasted 4 months!) and a cut that continued to look great till the next trim. Gia did a great blow-dry to finish the job. All staff is very friendly and down-to-earth. No snobbery at this place - and for one of the first times in my life, I left a hair salon smiling!

Kristen took the time to really listen to me regarding the issues I was having with my hair. I was in a color rut, very dark for way too long. Kristen spiced up my color with a warmer tone and subtle highlights. Nothing but compliments since. I feel like the rest of my features were softened and now my makeup even looks better with the new color she chose for me. Thanks Kristen!

I tend to obsess over my hair. I moved to the city about 5 years ago and continued to drive 2 hours back home to get it cut. With that process getting old I began to research hair salons in the city. After reading the reviews for Ultra I decided to give it a try. Sharon did a fab job of styling my hair. I have long thick straight hair and was desperate for a cut to make it sexier and more fun. I got exactly what I asked for ! I am hard to please when it comes to my hair so consider this review when searching for a good salon. Also, Gia gave my hair the most gorgeous blowout! Gotta try this place out!

Pros: you get the exact cut you've always wanted

Cons: cash/check only but thats not a big deal

... Thanks so much again, dear Kristen, it is honestly still the best haircut Ive ever had!!!!!!!!!! And I really was trying to figure out how to come more often to you but I do a lot of crazy things but flying to Philadelphia from Germany to get a hair cut would be too much, unfortunatelly. So I just enjoy the cut and the compliments I get.
Have a great rest week and make more people as happy as I am. You really deserve the "Best in Phili 2009"!

One of my favorite places in Philly. I say "places" rather than hair salons, because I leave Ultra feeling better not just about my hair but about life in general. The atmosphere is kitschy-cool and impeccably clean, they play music good enough for the stylists to sing to, they serve coffee in mugs with images that change as they cool, and Sharon and Kristen have incredibly positive outlooks on life. Of course, they also do great hair. I've gone to Kristen three times and she gives my straight hair the perfect amount of layering and angles (enough to give it body and style without it looking too funky - which is exactly what I ask for).

Sharon has been my stylist for years and has given me flawless haircuts. She is a consumate professional and would never turn out an experience as described by " Erin". I have never left one of these reviews but felt compelled to speak up for another woman in business. A similar review was posted 3/26/08 under a different alias and slightly reworded. " .I ran to my car and tied it in a ponytail. " Obviously I am an attorney...

Sharyn takes great care with each client, and her cuts last for months without looking old. I've gone 9 months between cuts and still get compliments on them the day before I go back! She coaches her crew to be equally diligent, with wonderful results. I started with Sharyn in 2002 and will follow her wherever she goes!

Sharon cut my hair and I have to say it was one of the worst haircuts I've ever gotten! She seemed more interested in chatting with everyone that came in and out of the shop than focusing on my haircut. When I left the shop, I immediately ran home and put my hair in a ponytail and wore it that way for weeks until the horrible haircut grew out. I went to a new salon after 8 weeks for a trim and even the stylist there commented what a bad haircut I had gotten. I would not recommend Ultra to anyone!

Sharyn's been cutting my hair for nine years now. I went through quite a few salons, and mediocre-to-bad haircuts, before I found her. I missed a few years when I moved out of the city for a while--and I didn't have a decent haircut the whole time. I wear my hair short, so the cut is critical (it's hard to fix a bad one). Sharyn has never let me down. Her cuts (and color) are flawless. They wear well and grow out well. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the other stylists are great... I'd give ten stars if I could.

The music at the salon is great. They have a Bose docking station and let the clients share their music too. Ultra plays great music including lots of older punk, and some newer indie stuff, mixed with alternative, old school dance, pop, and techno....Random, good stuff to hear when they're chopping away at your head.
The salon is super clean. The salon's feel is kind of modern high-end salon meets kitschy retro.

All together, a color, cut and blowdry came to $160. which was totally worth it! I feel like a new person...which is good because I just got over an icky breakup and I need a good change.

All together, a color, cut and blowdry came to $160. which was totally worth it! I feel like a new person...which is good because I just got over an icky breakup and I need a good change.

Pros: consistant work. been a client for months!

Cons: None!

Sharyn single handedly recovered me from a very traumatic hair experience in 45 minutes. She is very intelligent and has great eye. After my appointment yesterday, I felt obligated to share this with the others who may be suffering like I did.

Pros: Sharyn

Cons: not found yet

I got my first haircut at Ultra 6 months ago. I could tell that the cut was good because after 6 months, it was long, but it grew out very evenly and well. I used to go to chain hair cutting places to save money, but after 3 months of growing out, my hair looked uneven and terrible. I decided to do a search online for excellent places in philly and found Ultra. I have not regretted making the decision to stick with Sharon ever since. This place is worth every penny. The people who work there are really kind and hilarious. Thanks Sharon and friends!

I went to this salon last week and had a haircut with Sharyn. This is the BEST haircut I have EVER had! Sharyn was booked 2 weeks in advance but Joan (GREAT receptionist!) suggested I put myself on the cancelation list. I didn't expect to get in on a Friday night, but was so excited when Joan called me! The people at Ultra Hair Studio are so nice and did everything they could to accomadate me. This is a great cut! I have already booked my next one. Oh, and Kristen the other stylist was doing nice hair also. Super place!

I went to Ultra Studio today after being refered to them by 3 other salons. I was looking for a last minute hair style as I was going to an event. Sharyn Kelly was so nice. They were completely booked out but she took the time to make a phone call to another stylist friend -at another salon- just to help me out! I can't believe it! Who would do that for you? Ultra and Sharyn saved my night. I'm def. going back for color and a haircut!
Everyone there looked like they were very happy and the hair was incredible that I saw. I can't wait to go!

Ultra Hair Studio a locally owned business that makes Washington Square West a real neighborhood. A better neighborhood. They are as friendly as can be. They appreciate your business and treat you really well. They're warm and welcoming to every client who walks in. No pretensions. Their dogs are adorable. The salon is charming and creativly decorated.
You're supporting an independent business that sincerely cares about its clients, its staff, and its neighborhood. Love it! They also do great hair at reasonable prices!!!!!!!!

I've been going to a lot of different hair salons throughout Philadelphia over the past two years looking for a place where I leave feeling great and like my money was well spent . This is definitely, " the place".
Shay-ron is great. It really feels like you've just gone to a friends house to do your hair together, but with much better results.
In contrast to the loud, busy, rushed atmosphere of many salons, Ultra has that neighborhood appeal. During my apointment only one other client was scheduled and frequently neighborhood friends popped in to say hello and share stories.
The atmosphere, is quaint, yet professional, focused totaly on you!
Very nice job on the color and GREAT job with the haircut, exactly what I had in mind and very reasonably priced.
Best of all, I was the last appointment after a very long day (it was almost 8pm) and Sharyn treated me like I was the first client of the day and really took her time to do a great job which was really impressive to me. After my appointment I recommended this place to my roommate who agrees this is going to be "our hairplace" from now on. Thanks Sharyn!

I have never felt the need to write a review before, but I just came back from Ultra Hair Salon and I have never been happier with a haircut in my life. I've been staring at my reflection for the past ten minutes. My sister had gotten her hair cut by Kristen a few weeks earlier and was constantly hounding me to go to her as well since I haven't had a haircut in months. I finally found some time on a Saturday to go, and believe me, it was the best idea she has ever had. I only wish I had gone to Kristen sooner! We went over pictures of haircuts together to determine what I wanted, and she talked me through what she was doing the entire time. The end result was a haircut with so much movement and bounce (I usually have pretty dull, flat hair) that didn't feel weighted down by excess product. I felt so relaxed, so at ease, and the other stylists and customers there were all in good spirits. The salon is cozy and bright, and it feels much more welcoming than other stark, factory-style salons I've been to. The price is a bargain for what I received...I wish I could have Kristen do my hair for me every morning! I plan on recommending her to every single one of my friends.

I had my hair cut by Kristen last week. I've been going to some of the best salons in Phila. for about 20 years and decided to try something/someone new. Kristen did a GREAT job. Not all stylists who usually do women's cuts can cut men's hair well but I have to say I got one of the best cuts ever. She took the time to find out exactly what I wanted and what I didn't want. I got the cut I wanted - that is, one I can do almost nothing to and have it still look good. The salon is very comfortable and unpretentious, the staff is very pleasant. I wasn't reminded of one of those salons where you feel you have to fill out an application to get in. It's right in the middle of Antique row so the setting has character. A+++ all around! Thank you Kristen!

Pros: Everything was a pro

Cons: Parking is difficult if you're not used to the city.

I was really nervous about trying a new stylist because I have curly hair that has been butchered before, but Sharyn Kelly did an amazing job. I have two friends that are her clients (who love her) and they recommended her to me. She cut my thick, curly hair without any problems. When I decided a couple of days later that I wanted a few more layers put in, she squeezed me in immediately and without charge.

It's a great liad back environment and everyone is as nice as Sharyn. Kristen, the other stylist, was very friendly and busy with her clients doing nice work. Reasonably priced too, which isn't easy to find in center city. Overall a great experience and I'll definitely be a repeat client.

..........The salon is hip, friendly and has a great atmosphere. Ultra is fabulous! Sharyn has been working her magic on my hair for years now. She is extremely talented and it shows in her work. She is an expert at highlights!!! People actually stop me on the street to ask me who does my hair!

Pros: Great hair color!

.

The true mark of a great haircut is that it looks great even when it's grown out. Sharyn is very talented, and I would not hesitate to recommend her services. She listens, gives you the cut you want (not what she thinks would look good on you), and is extremely detail oriented so that the cut grows out nicely. I can't say enough good things about Sharyn and her salon.

I just had to share what a great visit I had at Ultra. Had my hair highlighted and cut. I am in my early 30s and am not ready for all this salt and pepper hair that just grew in suddenly! I have had a hard time at other salons trying to keep a natural looking color. I love that they did beautiful foils and added a darker color in addition to the light. I also got a killer short razor cut that is professional and I can freak it out on my time! Thanks for the total rehab! I feel like myself again!

I wish you many years of continued success!

I was so comfortable while she was doing my hair because I felt like she was so confident in what she was doing! She is so into hair and fashion. Music was great, love the tatoos. Very cool place. I would def. recomend this salon!

After seeing reviews left by folks online I decided to give this place a try. I snagged a last minute appointment with Kristen for a haircut and style. She was very sweet and listened to what I had to say. We also had an awesome conversation. Most of all in the end my haircut was wonderful. I really enjoyed and appreciated my whole experience. She seamed very passionate about what she does and it shows in her work.

I have been going here since they opened. You can always count on a great cut or color no matter which stylist you go to because Sharyn trains everyone and it shows. I went to Kristen, a new stylist and she gave me a layered cut with fantastic highlights!
My roomate saw my hair when I got home and went to see Kristen and also got a great new cut! Good to have another talented stylist with a FUN personality at Ultra!!! I love this place. I really like how it continues to evolve- better stylists, new decor. Its just a great place to go get your hair done. Not snobby either. Very down to earth.

I've gone here a few times and it's the best salon I've ever been to. I can't believe anyone ever votes less than 5 stars. They take a lot of time to talk to you about what you want and figure out what will work best with your face, then cut cut cut until it looks perfect. Fabulous, seriously.

I loved how Sharyn didn't rush and made me feel like I was an important client. In other salons, they have so many clients rushing in that they try to rush you out. She was also very nice and kept telling funny stories so you weren't bored the whole time. She gave me a nice cut and toned my color to a more natural color. I would defintely go back and recommend her.
