I absolutely love Christa @ Thunder. She's very attentive and gives 100% of her attention when you sit in her chair. My hair never looked so good since I've been going to her. I highly recommend her!!!

I love Christa @ Thunder! She styled my hair for my graduation portraits and I was so happy with the result. I am super picky about my hair, but I completely trust Christa. She listens to my requests and I never leave the salon unhappy.

I have been going to Thunder since I moved to Philadelphia in 1991. My hair is super straight and thick making it very hard to cut. Michael does a great job and I often get compliments on it. I moved to the suburbs a few years ago and have tried several highly recommended local stylists only to go back to Thunder. It is well worth the 45 minute drive into town to get a great stylish cut that keeps me in style and looking great!

Michael is a master with color. Every week someone asks me where I get my hair done because they love the color, and so do I. I drive almost 2 hours to get to this salon and Michael's skilled hands. I wear my hair chin length and in layers so a perfect cut is crucial. Michael spends at least 30 min. just on my cut. Even on a windy day, just a little fluff with my fingers, sends every hair back in place. He's the best!!

There is no-one to compare with Michael, the ultimate, skilled professional, he is a master at shaping difficult hair. I haven??t let anyone else touch my hair for more decades than he and I would care to count. Even when I travelled away from the city for some length of time; I just let it grow, I just couldn??t trust anyone else! The care he takes is extraordinary. Thank goodness he doesn??t know what a ??rush? job is: he will fuss until he is satisfied that the work is done to his own satisfaction. I can??t recall the last time I stated a preference for a style but if he has an idea for a change, he asks. Have I ever said no? I haven??t, no need to, he knows what suits me. And, without fail, after each cut I am asked by colleagues and strangers, Who did your hair? A compliment to me and to him!

How many years have I been going here? Seems like forever.

I live in the burbs, but work in CC. On the recommendation of a friend, I tried Thunder. SO much easier than trying to get an appointment at home (yes, I am one of those people who decide that today is the day my hair is too long & I need a cut NOW), and so much more convenient. Also so much better. Believe me, there IS a difference between a CC cut and a 'burbs cut, and it ain't just the price.

Stephen is wonderful. He can cut my hair blindfolded & still do a better job than most with their eyes open. I trust him implicitly. If he says something will look good, then that's what we do. He's got a great sense of humor, he's adorable, and the man knows what he's doing around hair. He is also warm and incredibly kind. You are not just a "head" to him, you are a friend. After you have your hair done, check out Nicoletta's jewelry as you pay your bill. Stunning!

I'd love to see Stephen on Shear Genius, but then again he might strike one of those prima dona hair stylists upside their head. They are not worthy to sharpen his shears.

I began getting my hair cut and colored by Louis about 8 years ago. During that time I moved to New York to work for a fashion magazine. I would drive down to Philadelphia every few months to have Louis color my hair. I worked with hair stylist all the time and the one comment they all made was how great my color was..."Who does your color?" they would ask. Last March I moved out to Los Angeles to work on"So You Think You Can Dance" and "American Idol". Who was going to do my hair!! That was all I could think about! Every month I put it off, my roots got longer and longer! It was time for a trip home... yes that is right I HAD to come home to see Louis because if you want the best cut and color you have to see Louis. When I got back to LA the hair and make up team raved about how great my color was. I am telling you New York and Los Angeles have some great stylist but Philadelphia has the best and his name is Louis.... you shoud give him a call.

A friend of mine, with gorgeous hair, referred me to Campbell years ago. After trying several "high end" salons in the city and finding no real love connection, I decided to finally give Campbell a try (better late than never, right?). She's FANTASTIC! She was super friendly and personable but above all knowledgeable. We talked briefly about my hair issues and then she went to work and I honestly could not be happier! I left the salon feeling like a movie star! As long as I'm on the east coast I will be a loyal Campbell client. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Well, I heard about this genius at thunder for a long time and I thought I would give him a try. I have gone from salon to salon trying to find someone real, without attitude, to tell me what is right for me, and still listening to my request, within minutes, he looked ay my shape face, my coloring, and after listening to me, he suggested some ideas on my haircut and hair color. I left there today with a whole new attitude, and a great cut and color. He is a genius! You'll see.

I've been going to Thunder now for about 6 years, and as long as Louis is there I will never go to another stylist or hair cuttery, be it a barber shop or a salon. As a somewhat "jocky" type guy and a stereotypical former fraternity brother, when my parents first told me to go to Thunder and pay for a $60 hair cut, I was somewhat skeptical. The local barber shop charged about $15 for a cut, and in my mind, a haircut was something to be endured then gotten on with. Well, after both my mother and father prevailed upon me to try Louis at Thunder, I became what might be called a salon convert. I'm not quite sure what exactly he does that is so different, but let me tell you this: There is a substanitive difference between a haircut at Thunder, particularly with Louis, and your local barbershop or Mastercuts or even your local fancypants salon.
After Louis cuts my hair, I look at myself in the mirror and say "Wow. That's a great haircut." When I walk out of that hair salon I feel like a million bucks with a haircut to match. I don't know about you, but that kind of haircut and that kind of experience is worth the money to me. If there was a rating above 5 stars, Thunder and Louis would get it.

Abigail has been styling my hair since before she went to cosmetology school and I am proud to report that she has found the perfect fit with Thunder! I always hated my hair, until Abigail got her hands in it! She has taken me from choppy layers and bad orange highlights to a whole new level! Just when I think this girl is out of ideas she busts out and gives undetectable fusion extensions for the beach and takes my sleek bob and transforms it with blocks of color when I get the January blues! She truly an artist and you can see her passion in how much she loves what she does - it's classic, it's modern, it's ever-evolving style. I love you girl! (almost as much as I love my hair!) ~steph.

I heard about Thunder from a friend, and although I live at the Jersey Shore, I felt I owed it to myself and my hair to give Thunder a try. My hair has undergone some major trauma in the past few years, and I was really tired of walking out of hair salons feeling like I had the cut and color that my stylist wanted. Stephen was thorough and entertaining and professional and gave me the most beautiful cut and color I have ever had! Thank you Stephen and Thunder Salon----I am one HAPPY CLIENT!!!

I've been going to Thunder for about 10 years - after hopping from one salon to another...trying all the "hair greats," "hot stylists" and "cutting superstars" who give you a great cut once and then fall back to rest on their laurels rather than their talent.
I began my private search for the right stylist after two "superstars", once again, gave me a bland, boring, cut and overly lightened my hair. In frustration and desperation to find someone who knew what they were doing, I began to stop people in the street when I saw a great cut or color and asked about their stylists. The name Michael at Thunder kept coming up, so I called, made my appointment, and loved it from day one. Thunder has a friendly, informal atmosphere and you immediately have the impression that the clients have been going there for years....because they have. You get a good feeling when stylists, shampooers, colorists and receptionists have worked at a place for more than 6 months. It was also a great feeling to have someone cut your hair who 1) knows what they're doing 2) is a professional 3) creates a "style and look" and not just a cut 4) is willing to try something new and 5) is fun and full of surprises.

I don't even tell Michael what I want, that's how much I trust him. When you walk out, you love what he's done because it feels so right. You have that same feeling as when you are wearing the perfect outfit and you know you look really, really good. Your hair shimmers and shines and you can just look at it and see the fine detail of the cut. Michael gives you a style, a look and the look works. I've watched him do five cuts in a row and each one is really styled individually for the person who wears it.
Now, I have people stopping me on the street and asking "who cuts my hair." It's nice to be on the other side of the question! Thank you Michael!

I've been going to Adam for around 10 years. I now live far out in the suburbs with 2 small kids. It is a pain in the neck to travel into center city but I do it because Adam is worth it. He listens to me (and he knows I'm very particular), and he gives me an excellent haircut every time. He is a wonderful person which makes the headache of the trip worth it. It's truly a treat for me. I always feel like a million bucks when I leave. In fact, everyone there is nice, accommodating and it's not too stuffy. I always recommend him to any friends/ family in the area and everyone I know who's gone to him has been completely satisfied. He's outstanding!

I heard about him over the years, but was hard to get an appointment with him, it was worth the wait. He met me with a pleasant hello and when he was finished with his client we had a consultation. We discussed color, in detail e.g. skin tone, and the haircut, face shape. He was very professional and does run on time. I've never been so happy. Thank you philly mag. ps and he is cute!

I heard about him over the years, but was hard to get an appointment with him, it was worth the wait. He met me with a pleasant hello and when he was finished with his client we had a consultation. We discussed color, in detail e.g. skin tone, and the haircut, face shape. He was very professional and does run on time. I've never been so happy. Thank you philly mag. ps and he is cute!

Pros: on time, fast and efficient

Cons: none

I have been a client of Stephen's for more than 10 years, and although I have "cheated" on him maybe 3 times through the years, I always return. No one is as talented. His talent transends his styling skills, he has an excellent "bedside manner", and makes your time in his chair a therapuetic session. I encourage all my friends, family and acquaintances to try him out. Several have, and all have been more than satisfied. I guess the cost can be pricey compared to suburan/rural areas, but I drive 25 miles each way and find it worth the trip. Nicoletta- Thunder's long time receptionist and the "glue" of the place is also a treasure!

I lived in NYC, and moved to philadelphia. I would always go back to NYC for my haircuts and haircoloring. I tried pileggi in philly and was not happy. I read about Louis, at thunder hair salon in allure magazine. I just had my hair cut and colored today by Louis and I am so happy to finally find someone in philadelphia that is as good as, or better than my stylist at fredrick fekkai in new york. He does it all, cut and color. He's the man. Thank you Louis! No more traveling and $$$ to NY to get color. My husband is very happy.

I love Steven! I have recently moved out of Philly and will travel to go back to him every time my hair needs it. I always feel like I could be in a magazine when I come out of there... Great service, and conversation.
Would definitely recommend.

A friendly, unpretentious salon in the midst of a street of snobby overpriced salons. Adam is the god of taming messy, nasty, unruly hair. - He's also supremely talented

I got a haircut and blow dry and Campbell was excellent at both! The staff is nice and friendly, and definitely worth the money. They are flexible in terms of appointments - I called at 5 pm and luckily they had a spot open and I got an appointment for 5.30 pm. Will definitely go again.

For a Rittenhouse salon, the atmosphere doesn't have bells and whistles which is a good thing. They are all very nice and professional. I love both Stephen and Adam. They listen and do what you want.
