Joseph Lentini is AWESOME!!! I wish I had found this curly hair stylist extraordinaire 20 years ago; it would’ve saved me a HUGE amount of angst over my hair! I have tight curly hair that I have abused for over 40 years until a hair stylist suggested that I let it go natural. I used to never go to a salon because I could never trust anyone to cut my hair, let alone style it. After having read all these reviews and testimonials to Joseph, I made an appointment for myself last weekend. I walked in with my hair hanging down, curling and kinking every which way in the classic “Wedge Style” it seems to have formed in the past couple of years. Joseph evaluated it and sat me down in his chair. Over the next 1 ½ hours he worked his magic on my hair, carefully considering every lock in his hands. When he was done, I was walking out of his salon with “Magazine Ad” hair – you know, the type of hair you see in a magazine ad and wished you had? Well, I HAD IT! It was GORGEOUS!! Instead of my curls hanging down, they bounced. I was on Cloud 9!! I even went across the street to buy a bunch of daisies because I was so ecstatic to find someone who truly understands and knows how to cut curly hair!! JOSEPH IS MY MAN FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!!!
Let me start off by saying that I dread getting my hair cut. I hate it so much that it's been about a year since I actually stepped foot into a salon. I usually just get my mom or someone else to trim off my dead ends. Most people think I am weird for doing this but I have good reasons. Just about every time I get my hair cut I leave wanting to cry because they butchered my hair. I truly believed that no one knows how to cut curly hair. My mom got me an appointment to Signatures salon so that Joseph could cut/fix my curly hair. As usual I was very skeptical but Joseph has changed my beliefs! There actually is someone out there who knows how to cut my curls. At Signacurl not only did I love my new hair cut but they took the time to explain how to take care of my hair and recommended some great products. Joseph took his time and cut every curl with precision. He even had me flip my head over and cut my hair upside down. It was an experience! Everyone is telling me how much fuller and healthier my hair looks. I love it! If you have unmanageable curly hair you must go see Joseph!
I have been braiding my hair with Mathilda Hair Braiding Salon for six years and it’s worthy for me. What amazing personality she has: She welcomes her clients with smile, listens to their needs, always makes sure that her braiders are at top and mostly even she is busy, she will finish the head by herself. She’s calm and provides the most entertained shop in south Philly. This is the place we feel as home because it’s cleaned; I can tell you this lady is nice. Here you relax, watch movies: Africans or Americans, watch her styles show mixed with great music and videos, watch TV news, shows or movies, listen to variety of music. So why should I look for another shop? Here's the place to be! And I have so far rated Matilda’s Braiding as five stars shop for my experiences. Besides, the price is subject to only the length, and style.
