I've been going to Nova Salon for well over 6+ years. I so much look forward to my visit's. Everyone is cheerful & friendly, It's so nice after a busy day, to come to place that welcomes you with open arms. It's like a breath of fresh air!! \n\nUnlike the big salon's in the city where your just another client. Here your greeted with not only a standard HELLO... but, ""How was your day?"", ""So nice to see you again!"" What's new?"" People that truly care... Now that's nice!! In the fast paced world we live in, it's nice to come to a place where people truly care, and it shows!! I say simply and sincerely... To everyone at Nova. THANK YOU!!! For always being so nice...It's truly appreciated!!!!!!! :-)

Great service, friendly, comfortable environment, best haircuts and color in the city

Nova Hair Salon is the best kept secret in the city. They provide the best service, and great haircuts and color with the most comfort. No pressure, they only want you to be happy with your hair and nails. They have been around longer than most of the other salons in the city and all the really important Philadelphians have been clients for years! I think they should be rated as the number 1 hair salon in Philadelphia!

Great overall experience

I began going to Nova 15 years ago, first for nails and now for everything. I have received more compliments on my hair---cut, color----than I have ever had before. Rose and Marianne and the entire group that work there are friendly, knowledgable, and make you feel like family.

Respose from Nova Hair Salon to Unfair Review

As one of the owners of Nova Hair Salon, I would like to respond to the person who suggests that we are rude. First, I want to specify that this person was a job applicant at Nova, not a client. As a courtesy to prospective employees, we allow all job applicants to fill out applications. If there is no job available at the time they come in, we make that clear to them. When this person came in to apply, she was informed that we would file her application for future reference, but there was no job available. She still insisted on calling 2 days later to find out about the job that wasn't there. \n\nPerhaps there was a misunderstanding on her part. Clearly there was a language barrier between us. I just want to make it clear that we are never rude to job applicants. In fact, we go out of our way to be courteous, by allowing evey applicant to fill out an application. We do not, however, have the time to be hounded by applicants once we have told them there is no job available.\n\nI would also like to state that this particular applicant has used the City Search rating system unfailry . by not specifying that she was not a client in our salon. Her review should be eliminated from our list, simply because it has nothing to do with the quality of our work, nor with our relationship with our clients. We pride ourselves on maintaining the most friendly and welcoming atmosphere in our salon, and this job applicant has insulted us by insinuating that we treat our clients rudely.

Great Haircut- Terrific Prices- Feels Like Home

I went to Nova after being disappointed with another salon in Center City Philadelphia. I called on a Saturday morning and was booked in with Erin. Upon entering the salon, I instantly felt at ease---which is not very common in the upscale salon scene. After only waiting for a few minutes, I met with Erin who discussed my cut and let me know what she would need to do in order to acheive the style I wanted. Erin is a true pro and not only cut my hair- but styled it for me so carefully----and I am so happy with the results. \nI am highly impressed with Nova.....and will be going back.

Truly, a great salon.

I have been a client of Nova Hair Salon for nearly 10 years. Although I relocated to Chicago 5 years ago, I still travel the 800 miles back to Nova to get my hair permed. Why? Because, they listen. Instead of giving me a hair style that I can not maintain, they work with me to create a style that fits my life. That alone would keep me coming back, but, as a bonus, the Salon's atmosphere is welcoming and upbeat. I can not recall a visit where I did not hear the clients and staff joking with each other. Truly, a great salon.
