I've been a customer for over a decade Theresa is great with my curly hair. I'm always pleased with her work. I like them because this is a down to earth no pretenses or overly slick hair salon and they do a great job. As far as the tipping goes I've worked for tips in the past so my normal tip for anyone who gets a tip waiter, cab driver, hairstylist etc. is 20% so if you're cheap maybe go to Hair Cuttery...

I'm not one of the people who owns or works at the salon. I'm a real customer, and I'm telling you that Kim gave me the best haircut and color I ever had. Yes, as one reviewer said, it's not as chic-looking as some of the other salons in

Unfortunately I have to agree with Elisabeth who said that the reviews on this site are being written by the salon's owner, Kim. I went to Liquid a month ago and two weeks ago, just to make sure: and yes, the place is dirty, with unswept

Liquid is a great salon. Everyone is friendly, the atmosphere is great, and the restroom outstanding!!! Theresa is my stylist and I would not go to anyone else in the City for a haircut. I have never received as many compliments as I do since she has been doing my hair.
Try them - I know you won't be disappointed.

Liquid is one of the most comfortable and friendly salons in center city Philadelphia. All of the staff members are great! Kim is my stylist and I have never left the salon not feeling truly pampered. She is the sweetest stylist and the atmosphere in her salon displays the warmth of a family. I always get complimented on my hair style and asked where I get my hair styled. Try Liquid; you will not be disappointed.

I've been going to Liquid for several years. I've always found the staff to be very friendly and the haircuts to be beautiful - and I've run the gamut from pixie to long layers. $50 is definitely up there, but if you want to be sure of getting a great cut, it's well worth it. Theresa is my stylist and I recommend her to everyone who asks.

I am a regular customer, 7 years or so, and I have had my hair done by both Greg and Kim. I am not sure I understand the smoke and smell problem that the other reviewers have said. I wonder if they are neighbors that get miffed by it. I have a very sensitive nose, and nothing has ever bothered me.

My hair is curly and doesn't need much to show shine and bounce, but still I get detailed treatment and haircut. The staff is always very friendly and I have always found the appointment time I have aimed for.

If you are new in Philly and don't have idea where to cut your hair, try them out.

Pros: Great location, and service

I am very picky about my hair. I went to college in Boston and swear I tried every salon in the city and was never satisfied. When I moved to Philly three years ago, Liquid was the first place I tried, just because it was conveniently located and because I saw they use Aveda products, which I really like. I never went anywhere else! They do a great job and are very reasonably priced. I go to Brian and he's fantastic. I don't really get the debate over the smoking...I never noticed anything like that and I'm SUPER picky about it (sensing a pattern?) I highly recommend.

Pros: Affordable, good results, friendly staff

Cons: I second whoever wrote about the cd's on repeat

Don't believe the good reviews here: they're all being written by the owner, Kim, or by the stylists themselves under different names. Truly, literally, this place "stinks" -- yes, what that other review said is true: all the stylists smoke, and though they're not allowed to smoke inside the salon, they all smoke right outside the door, and they stink of smoke (clothing, hair) when they come into the salon. It's sickening. And yes there is great turnover in the stylists, because they can't get along with kim. and NO i'm not a hair-stylist -- i'm in marketing -- but two vists was enough to convince me to go elsewhere. If you don't believe me, go there and see what I mean. But (as another review says) be prepared to Tip Big, or you'll get glared at.
My one-star rating is only because the system won't let me award no-stars.

I followed Michelle from her previous salon where she saved me from a bad habit of less-than-flattering cuts and home-dyeing mistakes. Michelle's given me the best color and cuts ever - hands down. As a client that consistently changes her color and style, Michelle always produces a great results, and works with me to make sure I know how to style it on my own. Liquid's a great salon where I can always get an appointment with short notice - the staff is friendly and accomodating, and I ALWAYS get great results. Highly recommended.

Whoever wrote the previous review was very wrong. There is no smoking in the salon, and the cuts are only $55.00. Must be an ex-employee.... There is a great atmosphere and the emplyees very nice and helpful.

Pros: Good haircut

The price is over the average price in Phila, even over the upscale average, and if the stylists don't like your tip, they're very unfriendly to you the next time. That plus having to wait sometimes as long as 25 minutes makes this not the best bet in Center City. I started going ten years ago, and it used to be really good, but Kim who runs it makes a lot of enemies, and only one or two stylists have stayed for a long time. Most leave after not too long. You can do much better.

if you don't mind the higher than average prices ($75 for a cut, $60 for a blow-dry) and the strong smell of smoke (all the stylists smoke), it's great though a bit crowded.

The salon has a relaxed feeling, and the stylists pay really close attention to what you think. The scheduling is a breeze! I got a fantastic cut from Jennifer. She knew what would look best for my hair type.

My hairdresser was Jennifer who was great! This was my first time to the salon which came highly recommended by a co-worker. I brought a picture in of the cut I wanted and Jennifer gave me the exact cut! This salon takes pride and it shows! All of the stylists and receptionist are very easy going and fun. No sales pressure at all. Price is reasonable.

I just had a foil and cut by Keith. And it is amazing. I had already heard great things about this place, and they exceeded my expectations. Everyone was extremely nice which is rare for a center city salon. Keith is awesome, and he knew exactly what to do with my hair.

My wife set up an appointment for me at Liquid Hair Salon and although I was reluctant to go to these types of salons, I went anyhow since I needed an upgrade in my style of haircut. The visit was a wonderful experience, the people were friendly, relaxed and fun. My wife's stylist Keith, who does a great job with her hair, also did a wonderful job with me and I will certainly return. I give this place high marks with the enviornment as well as the affordable priceline and friendly atmosphere..

This was a fabulous decision! I walked in one day after having read these reviews with the intention to make an appointment for tomorrow. Well, they took me right away. The front desk lady was super sweet, and the shampoo girl was so nice. Jane cut my hair and she was really professional and gave me a great cut. I just moved here from NYC and I have to say this place is on par with some of the best salons in New York for a fraction of the price. I got a better cut today than I have been getting in NYC. It's not a fancy place, but nobody is snooty or makes you feel like you're not good enough to be there. I am glad I took the advice of the other reviewers and went to Liquid!

You will consistently get a solid and stylish haircut at Liquid. Recently I have gone to Jen, and I have come out with a stylish haircut that lasted awhile, for $50. Previously, I randomly asked to be assigned someone who would be good with long hair, and also got an excellent haircut (she no longer works there). The dcor is very cute and funky, but not so trendy that you feel uncomfortable, and the staff is very friendly. I highly recommend!

PROS: Great haircuts
CONS: Can't think of any!

Liquid is a great little salon, where you get a lot for your money. Syrell did my color and he did a great job - and had a great attitude (no pressure to buy anything), even though he stayed well after closing time to finish. A month later, and my color hasn't even faded. The place is much more relaxed than fancier, more expensive salons, but it's funky and fun - and a good value.

This haircut has lasted 5 months+ and I am STILL getting compliments on it.
Color also a great match- I need to go get my roots retouched but original color was so well blended with my own that I might even get away with another few months.
Stylists are very friendly and approachable - and very experienced.

I'm a graduate student in Philadelphia (which means that money matters) and have lived in a number of cities, including Chicago, New Orleans, and DC. This place is the best I've found in Philly, especially for the price. It's not ostentatious but can compete with the best of every other city I've lived in. I definitely recommend it!
