I was refered to ends by a coworker .I was in need of a good hair cut .my coworker said that she and her family had been going to the salon for over ten years when they were located in center city. But they have relocated to the trendy northern liberties section of the city. I was glad to hear that because now free parking is available. I scheduled an appointment and my experience was GREAT!! I love my new haircut they really give their clients attention.I went for a hair cut but I also had a pedicure,manicure,and my brows waxed. They also gave me a tour of their Day Spa which was tucked away in the back of the salon.....I plan to return for a hot stone massage .like I said a hidden gem in Philly Happy
I had a fairly good experience at Rama I have been going to this salon for years; however there are a few things that I will never become accustomed to. 1 being I was quoted a price in person one day, and then when I returned to actually have services done another price was quoted. Secondly, the stylists are not customers service oriented (my braided was very kind) but the rest of the women speak in their dialect which can be somewhat offensive towards those who are not natives. The women also stare as someone mentioned previously luckily I'm not easily offended. In all I had a good experience at Rama and my braids were very neat and tight.
This salon is the best. Tru is very welcoming, she will hold a conversation with you the whole time. She tells you how to maintain your hair and what products you should use. She is very gifted in her hairstyles. My hair was very damaged and I've been avoiding a haircut for about a year now. Eventually I built up the courage to cut it. Tru did an amazing job and it is not a short as I expected. All of my hair length is still there. I received plenty of compliments on my hair. Right now I have my hair in a style called Rakes and I couldn't be happier, it looks brilliant. Tru is highly recommended.

I love this shop and everyone who works here. When you come in to get your hair done, they make you feel like family while they are doing your hair and teaching you how to better care for your hair in between visits. I encourage anyone who is looking for a great hair care experience to come to La Pearl...I promise you will be far from disappointed.
I called Tru at the last minute for my baby shower (2 days before). I was close to my due date and she was so nice she came all the way to New York from Philly to do my hair. She gave me touching cornrows and I was done in time for my baby shower. I had my son 4 days later. My hair lasted for 6 weeks.
omg this was my 1st time coming here and 1st she was very nice told her only once how I wanted it she did her thing I would tell any body looking to get there hair done really nice and some one who take pride in her work it not about a dollar so if u looking for the right price chick my girl out.
this place is so clean and the braids are so neat and perfect. definetly going back. the braiders knew what they were doing and very patient. i felt very comfortable and there are many food stoes down the street and someone went and picked up my food for me. you definetly get treated like royalty.
Ms. Tru is the best ever. She saved my hair. When I started going to her my hair was falling out now it's growing longer than it has in a long time. She gave me a sew in and nobody know's that it's a weave. I wear it in a ponytail when I work out or down when I go to work. Tru is the truth.
I love this place, I travel miles and miles away from Jersey just to get my hair done and have been doing this for years now and do not regret it one bit. Everyone makes you feel like family here its a great environment, fun place to be and they do this while putting YOUR HAIR FIRST!
