My review is a letter I wrote to Michael, who has been cutting and highlighting my hair for 4 years. Up until about 10 months ago, I was extremely happy with Michael's haircuts. I don't understand how someone can be so consistently wonderful and then not be able to give the same haircut twice in a row. My husband has been going to Leanna, who he absolutely loves, but is now thinking about not going back to her, because Michael will get a percentage of her fee. I should mention that Michael is one of the owners of Salon Thalia.
Below is the letter I wrote to him:
I'm so unhappy with the haircut you gave me on Tuesday that I've decided not to come back to you any more. My hair is so unbearably short, I've been wearing a hat so that people won't see it. It seems that every time I get my hair cut by you lately, something is wrong and I have to come back in to have it fixed. I don't know if you don't hear what I want or don't care what I want. I've even brought in the same picture the last three times I've come in and only once in the three times did you cut it like the picture.
I can't deal with getting a good haircut once in a while any more. And I feel that you should know why you won't see me in your salon any more.
There's really nothing you can do, because my hair is way too short to even ""fix"" this time.

So, I wrote a review about Maria from Salon Thalia about a month ago, she gave me foils and what she called a toner and then finished with a hair cut. Before leaving the salon we talked about me coming back for a keratin treatment to defrizz my hair, since then my color still looks fabulous, the keratin treatment did exactly what she said it would do,which was defrizz my curls and cut down my blowdry time. My final recommrndation is A+. Professional,consistant,knowledgeable and skillfull.Thanks Maria!

So, my former stylist left the previous salon that I was going to without notice. I called Salon Thalia after admiring someones hair I had noticed while riding the bus and I was told to ask for Maria, I immediately felt comfortable after Maria gave me a very thorough consultation for color and a haircut. Not only did she explain what and why she was going to do what I needed, she followed through and my results were outstanding. I left the salon feeling beautiful and I'm going back in 2 weeks to get a Keratin treatment to help smooth out my curls and defrizz my hair. Once again I could tell that she was very experienced and I'm confident that the results will be outstanding. Stay tuned I'll let you know how it goes...

I have been getting highlights for years & I am very, very picky about color! I have also been to just about every salon in philadlelhia and nothing compares to Michael G @ Salon Thalia! He puts An immense amount of time and care into what I want as well as what is best for my hair type and texture. He gives the color that I want and is still cautious not to Compromise the health of my hair. I've also been trying to grow my hair and when I ask Michael for a trim, he does just that! He never goes scissor crazy. I always leave loving my cut and color! Even my very picky boyfriend ALWAYS loves it!! Michael G is not only an amazing stylist (the absolute best at color), but also very friendly and energetic- making the whole experience fun!!

I am very picky with my hair and I am not an easy client, but Michael G always takes the time to listen to what I want and what I?m concerned with. I always hate being rushed and feeling like the hairstylist really doesn?t take the time to listen to what I wanted. Michael is amazing, he has great energy and is excited to cut and color hair. His coloring is impeccable! I started coming to him after seeing my friend?s perfect highlights. He always takes his time to make sure the cut is just right. What I love most about him is that he does both color and cut SO well, before I had to go to different people to get the best result. Every time I go to him, I leave completely in love with my hair. Highly recommend Michael, my friends and I only go to him.

I was based in Philly for work for 14 months and went to Travis at Salon Thalia after a recommendation through a friend. Travis is an awesome hairdresser - my color has never been better and the cut is both flattering and stylish.
Above all, Travis is a great guy! Really friendly, full of energy and knows just about every great restaurant and bar in Center City...
If it was feasible to go back regularly from Asia to get my hair cut by Travis I would :-)

Had an awesome facial with Alissa at Salon Thalia. She was great. I have only had two facials in the past but this one was definitely the best. I felt like I could fall asleep it was so relaxing! My skin was real soft afterward. I saw a difference immediately.
She recommended some great products and I am anxious to start using them. I have already booked my next facial in another month, and I cant wait!

John has been cutting my hair for years. He is excellent at men's cuts!! Well worth the $$. Every time I leave extremely happy with my cut and often find myself calling him back to let him know how much I love it. The salon is definitely a step up from his old salon. The warm towels are a simple touch but they make a difference!! Now if only they had a manicurist the salon would be complete.
