I RECENTLY MOVED TO THIS AREA FROM THE SUBURBS AND TOOK A CHANCE (AFTER MORE THAN 30 YEARS WITH THE SAME FANTASTIC HAIRDRESSER!) AND MADE AN APPOINTMENT WITH SHERRY--FABULOUS EXPERIENCE! SHE TOTALLY LISTENED TO WHAT I WANTED AND DID A GREAT JOB!

Pros: GREAT CUT AND COLOR

.

I was referred to Kyle, the owner, just about 8 years ago. After years at an upscale, aka, snotty salon, the switch to Salon@5th was refreshing and fun. When Kyle isn't available for my last minute appointment requests I can trust any member of his staff to do an outstanding job. More importantly, no ego from Kyle when this occurs. My hair is colored red and this salon is an expert at reds that last and are vibrantly beautiful.

The owner is layed back and you can tell the staff likes working there. I love that it's a local, cozy atmosphere where I can feel like I got a fancy boutique,cut and color- without the prices that usually come along with it! I used to live in Manhattan, so I know how crazy it can get, and am also accustomed to a great cut. Salon @ 5th delivers, without the pretense. I know some people that travel in from the burbs- so that says something too.

Pros: good vibe, nice people and great talent

Cons: parking

Salon at 5th has a great vibe, is not pretentious, and has a friendly staff - and Kyle (the owner) is great. I have been going to Faith for a while and I am always happy with the way she cuts and styles my hair. Faith makes lots of suggestions, and is proud of her work. She is really pleasant, listens to what you want, and offers up some cool chit-chat along the way.

I have been searching for a local salon in my area for a few months and stumbled across salon @ 5th. At first I was a little nervous about trying out a new salon but it was a new year so what the heck. I didn't make an appointment and just decided to walk on in. The staff member that greeting me was very friendly...there was not time right then to get a cut which was ok and partly my fault for not calling ahead. I was asked to come back later that afternoon. When I returned, I was greeted by John. He was very friendly and professional. John had a great idea for a new style and knew how to work with my hair. I have been to numerous salons in CC but no one has taken the time to sit with me and really talk about my hair like John did. One of the best parts of a hair cut is the blow-out and he definitely follows through, I felt so good. I can not wait to go back!!

Pros: friendly atmosphere, walking distance

As you walk into the salon you are greeted by the warm staff and the amazingly clean and modern decor. The salon offers all the trendy styles as others in the city but in addition an atmosphere comfortable for everyone. I have been at Salon at 5th for three years and I should do their PR. Mostly because I believe it can be a life changing experience to be happy with your appearance. I know it sounds dramatic but I think all men and women need and want a change every once in awhile so instead of changing your partner just get a fresh hairdo :)
John Brown is my stylist and I have recruited friend after friend to join his loyal posse. He is very talented and charming. His skill set is beyond any hair professional where he can take suggestions or he can do what his does best "stylist's choice". I have my haircut and styled everytime by his suggestion and EVERYTIME people rave about it. It says a lot about him that he knows how to be trendy but also apropriate for your face shape.

My mom is a stylist, and has cut my hair my whole life. After I moved to Philadelphia I became tired of having to drive an hour and a half for a haircut, and decided it was time to find someone local. I tried a few salons, and after each haircut found myself putting it in a pony tail and waiting anxiously for it to grow out. Luckily, a friend of mine recommended I make an appointment with John at Salon @ 5th. As you can imagine I was a nervous wreck going in, not having ever had a good experience anywhere other than my mom's kitchen. John calmed all of my nerves, listened to what I wanted and had great ideas to enhance my style. I've been going to John for a year and a half now, and would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Now my hair appointments are comfortable and relaxing, instead of nerve wracking and disappointing. Everytime I walk out of Salon @ 5th I feel fabulous! I recently moved out of the city and the drive to see John is well worth it - he's definitely the best!

Pros: Professional, Comfortable, Reasonable Prices

Salon @ 5th provides affordable cuts, coloring, and styles for men and women, provided by a courteous staff, in a friendly atmosphere. Bernadette in particular really takes her time, and listens to her customers when it comes to what they want in a haircut. And then she delivers!

If you're looking for an affordable, yet stylish cut, from a friendly and professional staff, in or around the Old City, give Salon @ 5th a try; enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine during while there, knowing you will receive great service, and the style you are looking for!

After traveling to NJ for years to have my hair done, I got tired of the trek over there and opted for a salon closer to home. My first try was Salon@5th and it was a pleasant surprise. I was used to going to a "factory-like" setting in NJ where they churned people through in a loud, bright place and it wasn't until after I experienced Salon@5th, I realized what a true salon experience is - relaxing and calm. Everyone at Salon@5th knows my name, waves hi as I pass by on my way to the gym or Superfresh, and has welcomed 3 of my best girlfriends as new clients. Bernadette currently does my hair but I would trust anyone there - you won't be disappointed!

I have been going to Salon @5th for years. I have been a clients of John's since he first began cutting hair. I think I was actually his first client. I am VERY picky and probably drive him crazy sometimes but John never fails, he always gives me a great cut!! John is always professional, he listens to what I am looking for, and I always leave happy. If you are looking for a great cut and/or color go see John at Salon @ 5th!! The rest of the staff is also great. They are all friendly and the atmosphere at the salon is very easy going and comfortable.

After going to the same place outside of the city for the past few years, I came to Salon at 5th on a friend's suggestion and would without a doubt recommend it to anyone. After getting a few great cuts from Bernadette, I decided to go for highlights for the first time and was extremely happy with them and just had them done again recently. (Bernadette also takes the time to do an awesome blowout!!)
Aside from the actual services, I'm always warmly welcomed, offered a drink and feel very comfortable in the salon. A great place and I'm so happy to not have to trek out of the city anymore!

Pros: serves wine, reasonable prices, friendly staff, and JOHN

Cons: parking is a little tough but i always manage to find something

Salon at 5th is by far and away, hands down, the best salon in Philadelphia. Not only is the staff professional, but insanely cool. Going to the salon is usually such a drag, but not when John or Bernadette are responsible for you hair. Whether you just need a quick blow-out, a serious haircut, or a full head of color, Salon at 5th is the place to be. I am extremely particular about my hair and would not trust another soul besides Bernadette or John, and never leave the salon less than thrilled with the results. Over the years I have tried several different colors and styles, and let me tell you that the Salon at 5th is the place to be. I have been to salons in Boston, New York, Chicago, Denver and even Rome, but have never been as satisfied with the outcome as I am when Bern or John has done my hair. The atmosphere is hip and fun. The staff make you feel at home, and I always have a blast whether it is a 30 minute wash and blow-dry, or a four hour hardcore color session...I love Bernadette, John and Kyle! Want to try a new style or color, or just keep your regular cut? Bernadette or John are the stylists to ask for. Not only will the staff ensure that you are more than 100% satisfied with the results, but will also make sure that you have a comfortable and fun visit during your time at the Salon at 5th. The chairs are comfortable and the products are always the newest items to arrive on the shelves. Redken all the way! Curly, straight, wavy, blonde. brown, black, red, or blue hair, not matter what texture or color you hair is, Bernadette and John will without a doubt handle your hair in a proper, timely and efficient manner that will ensure you leave a happy client. The salon is also reasonably priced and in a convenient location, parking is always available. I would not switch hair stylists if you paid me, thats how much I love and trust Bernadette and John's ability and creativity.You guys rock! I highly recommend trying the Salon at 5th, you will not regret it!

I started going to Salon at 5th under the recommendation of a friend about 2 or 3 years ago. John is the BEST! He's approachable, funny and always makes me feel like a model when I leave!
In fact he just gave me the best cut ever! I had been growing out my hair (and he suffering with me) and I finally decided to go short again. I think I was gushing in the salon! And all of friends love my new 'do as well ( I apparently now have mojo!) And 3 weeks later I still love it!!
If you are looking for a salon with real people who are not fake or pretentious and cut fabulous hair this is THE PLACE! And John, as always, rocks my hair!!

I'm kinda new to the area so I had no idea where to go in the city for a haircut until I saw this place across from Superfresh. I asked around and got nothing but 2 thumbs up so I called for an appointment and booked Bernadette. Never being a fashion expert, I asked her what kind of haircut would look good on my head. She new exactly what to do and told me how she thought the hair would compliment my facial features and even suggested the right type of prouct and shampoo to use as well as styling tips I never would have thought of on my own. She even told me ideas for what we could to in the future, like growing my hair out or possibly relaxing it. She took great care of me and I couldn't wait to go out and make a great first impression on the town thanks to her. I have all the confidence in the world that I know I look good. Kelly gave a great shampoo and massage and John, Kyle, Faith and Jen all have great attitudes and personalities to make the whole visit top notch. And you can't beat the prices considering the location. Ask for BERNADETTE!!!!

I was in the past week and this is my first time I have EVER written a review for anything. I was so satisfied with the service and the outcome, by far the best haircut i have gotten in my life. My hairdresser' name was Bernedette and she was not only good at her job but more then nice to me. Her employee John also treated me very nicely. I know just as long as I am around Philadelphia I will ALWAYS use this salon everytime i need a haircut. I suggest you do too!

About a year ago I called the salon in dire need of having my hair repaired. It was breaking all over and just in horrible over all conditon. When i called they suggested I work with Bernadette. Well a year later I couldn't be happier. Not only did she get my hair back on the right track but she is also amazing at color. She really listens to what you have to say and takes pride i her work. I love every experience I have in there. The whole staff is great and they make you feel so welcome when you call for an appointment or when you stop by. If you need help bringing your hair back to life ask for Bernadette. She'll take care of you.

My hair is in bad condition and very difficult to deal with. That is why I go to a professional salon instead of cutting it myself like I normally would. But apparently my stylist, John, was more clueless than I was. He had no knowledge of what I could do to make my hair easier to work with or help restore it. During the cut he was constantly complaining about how bad my hair was. He didn't listen to what I wanted and was very defensive about everything, bordering on attitude. I don't have much of a problem brushing my hair, but he couldn't do it without pulling a ton of it out. And finally, my haircut is an absolute abomination. Not only was it not what I was asking him to do, but it looks like a 3 year old did it. You would never believe I went to a salon. It is lopsided, choppy, uneven, and a mess. I didn't get charged but he didn't even apologize or admit to any faults of his own.

In general, he was difficult to deal with; he was unprofessional in his attitude, not knowledgeable/uneducated in the field, unclear in his communication, and absolutely terrible at cutting hair. I'm beyond disappointed - I have a professional meeting tomorrow and now I have to waste more time trying to find a salon that will fix it. I'm not one to complain usually, I wish I could post a picture so you could see how not exaggerating I am.

I was looking for a new barber near Center City to cut my hair and shape a newly-grown beard and gave Salon @ 5th a try. After four appointments, I can highly recommend Salon @ 5th. Faith restyled my hair and shaped the beard. Over the years, I?ve seen many barbers in Philadelphia and even more so in Chicago?some at neighborhood shops; and a few at high-end downtown salons. Never have I received so many compliments about my hair and beard as after my visit to Faith at Salon @ 5th. Top flight stylists; a friendly, comfortable environment and reasonable prices--for me, that adds up to five stars.

I've been fortunate enough to have Kyle (the owner) cut my hair for the last 4 years. He's always super personable and does a great job. He's super patient (as demonstrated when he did my hair for my wedding) and one of the more knowledgeable stylists that I have encountered in Philly.

I've been going to this salon for several years. Kyle has been outstanding with helping me select an appropriate hair style as well as giving me tips on the cool new places to go in the city. All the stylists are very personal and courteous- offering the take your coat, getting you a drink, etc. I always look forward to my appointments!

I've had several blow-dries with Bernadette, and she is fantastic. She expertly straightened & smoothed my unruly curls and I left the salon looking fabulous and feeling beautiful. And her scalp massage is amazing. Salon @ 5th is right across the street from Super Fresh in Society Hill. If you want great hair, book an appointment with Bernadette today!

I recently moved to the area and was looking for a new hair stylist. I decided to try Salon @ 5th after the great reviews and was lucky enough to get Faith for my first appointment. I immediately felt comfortable: the location is great, and the atmosphere is very relaxed, which I love. Within a few minutes I knew that I'd be coming back regularly; Faith was so easy to talk to and so professional, I decided to get my hair highlighted on a whim (in addition to the cut) and I loved both! She did exactly what I wanted, almost as if she read my mind. I'll definitely be headed back again, and would definitely suggest the same to anyone else.

Within a few minutes I knew that I'd be coming back regularly; Faith was so easy to talk to and so professional, I decided to get my hair highlighted on a whim (in addition to the cut) and I loved both! She did exactly what I wanted, almost as if she read my mind. I'll definitely be headed back again, and would definitely suggest the same to anyone else.

I am a hairstylist and do not have the time to get my hair cut where I work. Faith is faboo. Her strengths are communication, my own phillosophy is that there is primarily poor communication, resulting in stylists not meeting the clients needs. Faith will make sure she knows what you want. She is also an expert in getting people comfortable with her especially those "non-traditional" salon clients- those normally not comfortable in a salon setting. Her cuts are amazing as is her color work. Go Faith

Pros: Great neighborhood salon, easy parking

I moved to philly from NYC, I had a hard time finding a stylist that did exactly what I wanted. I went to Salon @ 5th and was introduced to Lauren who delivered my expectation and even was aware of all hip new styles and color techniques. I highly recommend Lauren to everyone who wants to be IN and in the current trend. Thanks a bunch Lar! John is the shiznit too!

Pros: Atmosphere is comfortable and they even offer WINE

Cons: zero

I am a rare breed of finicky yet vague when it comes to how I try describing what I want my hair to look like after a visit for cut and color. I can see how I want it in my head but have a really hard time verbalizing it. If you're anything like me, you've got to go to FAITH at Salon @ 5th. Faith listens well, articulates what I'm trying to get across, and even provides really great visual metaphors in helping me understand what she's thinking in translating my request. She's great! If you also want high class service without the pretentious vibe, you can't beat this salon. I love it there, but truth be told, I'd follow Faith into a backwoods barn if she'd still do my hair. Keep the FAITH my friends...there really is a friendly salon with a genius stylist that is worth every penny and more, right here in Center City.

Of course I enjoyed the 5th but my faith was found in Lauren...Young and enjoyable attitude, go to her!

My wife and I have just moved into Center City from the suburbs and I found Salon@5th in Society Hill. It has a friendly atmosphere and someone even offered to hang my coat and then offered me a refreshment. Nice touch.

My haircut was great. Kyle did a fantastic job and my hair looks good even after three weeks. I convinced my wife to try Salon@5th and she loved her haircut also. She looks great, but then again she always looks great.

I had a really good experience at the salon and I felt that it deserved a good review. I would highly recommend Salon@5th and we will become regular clients there. Great job guys and keep it up!

Hands down, Faith IS my most important fashion accessory. I've followed her through three salons now, and she's worth her weight in platinum. The drive, the traffic, the schedule conflicts .... none of it measures up to the confidence I hold in Faith and her skill as a stylist. She listens, evaluates your expectations, and consistently delivers great skill and service. Unlike many artists, Faith is continously challenging herself to learn and apply new techniques that help her clients maximize their style, and personal impact. If I've recommended one person, I've recommended ten to Faith - these men and women agree with me. She's a hair goddess. Don't waste your look, time, and money on someone who won't invest in YOU. Go to Faith.

Pros: Free Parking For Out of Towners, Complimentary Wine

This was my first visit to Salon @ 5th and I came in with a bad haircut that needed to be fixed. Faith asked me a number of questions about what I was looking for, threw out some options and worked a miracle, turning a disaster into one of the best haircuts I've ever received.

The location is great, the atmosphere is a relaxing change from the craziness of the city, and Faith really listens to what your personal needs are as far as styling goes.

I love everything about this salon. It's in a great location, the people who work there are fun, and the design is cool and modern. Best of all, Salon@5th has Faith, who is the best stylist I've ever had, including a fancypants guy in LA who used to charge twice as much. I've gone to Faith for years, and many is the time I've come in wanting a change but not exactly sure what I wanted. Some stylists get a little mad when you do that, but she actually likes it and sees it as a challenge. You can tell she loves experimenting because every time you see her she's done something new and unusual to her own hair (and it always looks good). The best part of getting my hair done by Faith is that it continues to look great as it grows out. That's the sign of someone who really knows what she's doing.

In the past I would go to the salon and get my hair done and I would like it for a day. Then as soon as I went home and washed it and tried to do it myself, I would realize I could never duplicate what the stylist had done. I also never used the same stylist more that twice, since I never felt they were listening or interested in me being really happy with my hair. Then I started going to Faith (3 times and counting) and met a stylist who really listens to what you want, is creative and really cares that you are happy when you get up from her chair. One of the best things about going to Faith is that when I get home, I can do my hair myself and it still looks cool, and funky, and fun, just like when Faith did it!! I once read in a magazine that the sign of a really great haircut is that you get compliments on your hair even up to the day before you're getting it cut again. This has started happening for me for the first time since I started seeing Faith.
This is a great salon and a terrific stylist in a convenient location. And parking is okay, too!

Salon @ 5th is a little gem of a salon. The staff is down to earth, and you can tell they really care about what they do. I've had John and Lauren both do my hair, and they do a great job. If you're sick of going to pretentious salons that run late and treat you poorly, you should try Salon @ 5th.

Salon @ 5th is a cute spot between South Street and Independence Mall. I went there for an appointment with Faith (who came highly recommended) and she was awesome. She was very down to earth and relaxing to be with. This place is totally great, and I felt so much more confident and restored after a session with Faith.

Faith is one of this city's best hairstylists.

I've been to so many salons in this city. House Productions...Fluid...Julias Scissors (he was really good too) and many, many more. I find that there seems to be a problem communicating what I want done and getting feedback from the hairstylist. In other words, what I like, is to go in and tell the hairdresser some general ideas and have them fill in the rest with their own ideas.

Faith does that. I go in, tell her how I want to look, and she'll tell me about different techniques, colors and cuts and what they do. I highly recommend not only the salon, but the stylist Faith -- for both color and cut.

A friend once said to me, "Don't you wish you could ask your stylist to cut your hair cooler than they think you are?" Well, that's exactly what I got at Salon @ 5th! And Faith is the best hair stylist ever! I highly recommend this salon.

I just had the best salon experience in a very long time. Faith was the name of my stylist and she was fantastic. I briefly explained what I was looking to do and she was able to create exactly what I had hoped, but better, because it was on my head and not in my imagination! She is very capable and super nice to talk to, and extremely professional. Faith obviously loves what she does and it shows in her final product as well as her attitude toward her clients. Thank you Faith!!!

I'm a twenty-somthing finicky female, and Lauren has done a great job with my hair and eyebrows (and ladies you know you can't trust those to just anyone). The prices are reasonable for a Center City salon.

Walked in randomly thinking it seemed kinda blah. But Lauren did a great job! Did highlights and a neat cut for a total of $130 which was way better than I had been paying and a comprable job, if not better.

First I had to wait 20 min. for my appointment to begin. Then the stylist I had seemed non-interested in what he was doing. The shampoo girl pulled my hair and was not gentle at all. The atmosphere seemed really snobby even though I couldn't see why, the place was really boring and non-interesting. The price was ridiculous for the service I received. And then, later, I realized that he didn't really cut any of my hair! Granted, I told him I was trying to grow my hair long, but, the layers were barely there!! Definitely will not be back.
