After going to the same stuck up hair salon in Rittenhouse I decided to try Salon At 5th after getting a Groupon for a mani/pedi there. I liked my mani/pedi and the place so much I scheduled my hair apt for the next week. Jon did my color and cut, GREAT job!! The staff are very friend, you feel instantly relaxed and at home here. It's small but don't let looks decieve you, they do a great job and the prices are reasonable.

Ask for Toby! I have had many stylists over the yrs, but Toby, by far exceeds them all. Blonde is a difficult color to get right. Highlights, single process, low lights... It takes an experienced colorist to know which combination will work for each client. He gives an excellent cut as well. Great at what he does and he extremely nice. I highly recommend booking with him asap

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.

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.
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!
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.
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!!

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!
