Artur Kirsh is a truly talented stylist and colorist. He takes the time to listen to my needs and concerns. Since seeing Artur and his staff my hair looks so healthy, shiny, and voluminous. It was an investment well worth making! More...

I have curly-wavy hair. Phil is the first stylist in my 40+ years of life who really knows how to cut it and shape it - effortlessly. All the while, having good conversation and being cheerful. It's obvious that he "respects" YOUR hair that YOU have on YOUR head. He looks at it, moves it, talks to you about it and "takes in" what it's doing before he takes a snip. Phil is cool, artistic, positive energy with some damn good hair skills! Go see this guy! More...

I love this place! I’ve been going for 4 years to this salon and I’m satisfied. Artur does a great hair cut as well as Philip. My last appointment was with Philip for a trim and i’m very happy with the result! I recommend him and the salon! More...

I see Effie for waxing, and it's been the best experience here. I've been getting bikini waxes for several years, and Effie is the first person to wax in a way that prevents ingrown hairs. She's meticulous in her technique, and incredibly professional. I'll never go anywhere else! The rest of the staff is super pleasant, and they're very helpful in getting me scheduled and accommodating me. There's coffee and snacks while you wait, and everyone is super friendly. Very clean, very comfortable. More...

Bruce and Heather did an amazing job with my cut and style!  I went to them before being a bridesmaid in a wedding and I felt beautiful because of them. Bruce also gave me some great tips about everyday styling of my hair and some ideas to improve volume.  He had really specific ideas of how my hair should be cut to maximize my face shape/features.  Heather was so helpful in teaching me how to curl my hair.  High recommended!!

I had just moved to Philadelphia and received a recommendation from a local Philadelphian to Artur's Salon. Having short hair I am always wary of a new stylist because they can really butcher you quickly Also, as a blonde I have been to many places where my hair has snapped off, been yellow, brassy, or just wrong. I made an appointment with Artur and he did not disappoint!! He has an amazing air about him were you just want his opinion and his insight. He worked quickly applying the highlights and I did not have to be re-processed to get the color right. He is cool and laid back and took his time to determine how each piece would fall. I left there feeling like a ROCK STAR. I highly recommend his salon, it is clean, professional, and very on trend. More...

I've been going to the Artur Salon for five years now - will not go anywhere else. Both locations carry a cool vibe.
He's just a chill, talented artist - many don't know he's touched the hairs of many pop icons. And his line of hair product is good stuff too! More...

I have been a client of Arthur Kirsh for almost 20 years. I started with Artur when he was in L'Etoile in Manayunk then continued with him when he opened his salon on Rittenhouse Square and in Jenkintown and now in The Bellevue as well as his new salon in Manayunk. When my husband and I travel, I always make sure to get my hair appointment in before we leave, even if we are traveling to some place with exclusive hair salons. Artur has provided me with the BEST hair color, cut and styling in a professional and courteous manner. His staff, some of whom have been with him for many years, are trained personally by him to provide the same professional and courteous treatment of clients. And best of all, his father, Gregory, can be seen in the salon always with a friendly smile on his face and with a big hello. I know for a fact Artur has provided hair styling to the rich and famous yet continues to treat each and every one one of his clients as if they are the one and only Star of the Day. More...

Love it here!! I go to Giulio M for my blowouts and color. As a fake blonde, it's hard to find someone who can keep my hair looking fabulous while staying healthy. He knows how to portray exactly what I want in my color. All of the staff are super friendly and accommodating and are there to answer any and all questions! Highly recommend!!! More...

Phil is my hairdresser. Has been for last 4 years. He apprenticed under Artur Kirsch(owner and fantastic stylist) who introduced Phil to the art of dry cutting hair. Phil is a fantastic stylist in his own right. And, his skills keep getting better and better as the years go by. Go see him at the Artur Kirsch location in Manayunk. You'll be thrilled with the results! More...

Bruce DuBois is the best. He did my hair for years before I moved away and then moved back. I was so happy to find him again. His cuts are absolute perfection and he is a master colorist. He and Heather make a great team. Great service, great location too! You won’t be disappointed. More...

Thomas Frable (Dutch) is incredible. He is new to the salon but clearly an experienced pro. I have thick, course blonde hair and he took his time to make sure every highlight was perfect. He was actually rated best stylist in Scranton before he moved to Philly so the guy is talented. Cherry on top was the amazing blow out at the end - which is not easy on my hair. Highly recommend - he has great taste which makes it easy to feel like you are in good hands. More...

I have recently started having my hair colored by Seiko and my cut is done by her husband Johnny. The compliments I am getting do not stop. A lifetime friend told me "your hair has never looked so good". This dynamic duo brings the quality and style of New York to Philadelphia.As the French say, they are "le top". More...

I had Katie Brandon-Blasker for highlights and cut- she's amazing, guys. I wanted to go a smidge darker for the winter and stay with cool tones. As usual, Katie delivered - and it's why I've been going to her for 5 years with all my blonde hair needs! As for the Salon, great space, amazing light and the staff is super friendly. I couldn't be more pleased! Thank you!!! More...

Katie is the best! I typically skip around from stylist to stylist based on my availability, but have not been able to part with Katie since my first visit. She completely transformed my hair from a dull blonde into a naturally vibrant blonde and my cut is super cute and easy to manage. I highly recommend Katie - not only is she the best of the best as a stylist, but she is super laid back and great to chat with. I always look forward to going back. More...

Everyone is super friendly and helpful. The service is excellent! Getting my hair washed was very relaxing!  Erica was super in tuned with what I wanted for hair and was very attentive and made sure to ask all the right questions to get all the details on the look that I wanted.My hair came out fantastic! The cut was the perfect length and had beautiful and volumizing subtle layers. My balayage was a hit! Very subtle  and elegant with beautiful browns, light and dark,  and having my hair curled  was just the cherry on top! I felt very stunning afterwards  and couldn't help but smile all the way home.They made sure I had wine and a nice comfortable seat while I waited to get my hair taken care of.  The salon is very nice and professional.  They have a great view from the windows.

Artur Kirsh Salon and Spa at the Bellevue is a wonderful salon, great service, great people!  I've been having my hair cut by Bruce du Bois for over 25 years now, and I'd never go anywhere else.  I feel Bruce's talents are under utilized on me, because I'm just an old dude who needs a haircut.  You see, Bruce is a Master Colorist and is recognized as the top of his field in France and the US.  I've never had my hair colored.  And I know Bruce is great, because I've seen his work.  But I've been seeing Bruce for so long, he's an old friend.  When I see Bruce, it's more about talking about the Phillies, or the Eagles, or whatever else might be topical.  Bruce always does my hair well, back when I had goth hair, and even now when I'm in my 50s and my hair's short and thin.  LOL  Bruce's assistant, Heather -- she rocks, too!  Best salon ever!

Ok, I never write reviews but I felt so compelled to 5-star this place! I went on a whim, first time at this salon, and Phil was WONDERFUL. Easily my best haircut in YEARS. He was super thoughtful about my finicky curly hair, and dry cut and diffused it. I haven't had a stylist really diagnose the best cut for my hair since I lived in NYC years ago. So impressed and so happy! Awesome space, lovely team. Great experience, look forward to seeing Phil again and again. LOVE! More...

This review is for Seiko, she did the most amazing balagye job! I am usually super picky about anything related to my hair, but she was super patient, asked a lot of questions. Definitely recommend :)

Oh my God! Awesome! Seiko is the best colorist anywhere! My highlights were magnificent! And...Z, who cuts my hair...well, fabulous!!

love it here. i've only ever went for haircuts but have heard and seen great things from friends who've gotten color done.the salon itself is cute and the staff works to get you in and out pretty quickly. great wash which invigorated my scalp but was also super relaxing. if you're like me, your favorite part about studio CL will be the fact that your stylist will be friendly but not overly chatty at all. if you're looking for someone who will be just simply friendly and meet your needs, it's awesome. there are definitely other stylists who are down to chat but i personally love the "down-to-business-let-me-close-my-eyes-while-you-do-this" option. i'd recommend both jeff and christi.for sure one of the more expensive cut and blow outs i've paid for but 100% worth it for quality and convenience factor.

My mom has been getting her hair colored and cut by Artur for 10+ years at The Studio CL, so when I recently got bored with my hairstyle I ventured out to give this place a try. I am so glad that I did!I highly recommend Artur, who I scheduled to cut my hair. I told him that I wanted to change up my style but that I honestly did not even know what I wanted, and he somehow managed to give me the perfect cut. A true artist! He is so sweet, and you can tell that has a genuine talent and passion for what he does. The rest of the staff seemed to be impressive as well.The interior is hip, and the music soundtrack is awesome. Complimentary beverages are even offered. More...

Artur is the best! I am his new client and only been to him twice, but he never stops making me feel and look amazing. He does exactly what you ask for, which every hair stylist should really do, but 90% of them don't. I could not be happier that I was reffered to Artur at studio cl who is also the owner and excited for many future visits:)) More...

Zaneta (aka Z) is wonderful. I found her through Yelp thanks to someone's comment about her skill at handling cowlicks in men's hair. The first time I went I showed her a picture of what I wanted and she adapted the style for my hair, and ever since then she always remembers exactly what I want. She pays close attention to detail and I always love my cut. It always grows back really nicely. She's also very pleasant and professional, and I look forward to seeing her whenever I go. More...

Just moved here from NYC and did my research and so happy with my choice. Booking online was super easy. Called up to see if the one process color included a blow dry (it does not) but apparently for $65 in Philly that is the best you can get. I used to get my hair color at Kolorbar from Marianna Cekaj she is fantastic if you are ever in NYC on the UWS. Anyway, I went to Lauren Garrett at Studio CL and she is wonderful, really knows her stuff and my hair looked great. Full coverage of my grey. They even did a gloss after. The woman at the front desk was sweet as was Stephanie her assistant, offered a beverage, covered me so no drips got on my clothes (which never even came close to being needed) and was gentle during the shampoo and removed all the excess around my face and ears. So relieved I find my colorist! Thank you! More...

I have been going to Studio CL for about two years now and love it. I go between Artur and Sidney depending on who is available (I always have to schedule last minutes) and love them both. Anymore, Sidney is the one who does my color as she knows my history best at this point. I first came to the salon after trying a different salon when I first moved here. I had a terrible experience at the first salon and Artur fixed it for me. It was a deja vu moment when I recently moved out to the 'burbs and tried a different salon so I could avoid coming into the city. Big mistake! I came back to have Sidney fix my hair and she squeezed me in and did a fantastic job (it will take a couple of visits until I actually like my hair again, but it is wayyyy better). I will gladly make the trek to the city and pay for parking etc. to have Studio CL do my hair. Also Skin Palette out of the studio is great for spray tans!! More...

I believe it was Sydni who does my hair. Yes they're pricey but they are very accommodating, comforting, and they sit and listen and help you figure out what your indecisive ass wants to do with your hair.

Go see Kim for your color!! She took me from black to blonde over the past year and I couldn't be happier. She created really pretty dimension that grows out beautifully between appts.  I showed her pictures of the color/look I wanted to achieve and she adapted it to work for me.  Definitely the best colorist I've had.

Ive been coming to Studio Cl now for about 13 years! Even when i lived in DC I came home to have ARTUR do my highlights. He even did my hair for my wedding day.  Artur is the absolute best for both color and cut, he takes his time and makes you feel beautiful. His salon is laid back, not stuffy, and his staff is extremely talented and curteous. More...

I've been loyal to The Studio CL for 5 years now and I couldn't be happier. The stylists are talented and they go above and beyond to meet your expectations. Seiko does my color and she is truly an artist, she is very precise about her technique and always makes my color look natural and gorgeous. I've gotten haircuts by almost all of the stylists there, I trust every single one of them :) Christi also does makeup there which saves me time from having to go to a different place when I have a special event!

Christi did my hair and makeup for my wedding day and I could not be more pleased!  Everything went so smoothly and I got sooo many compliments.  Both my hair and makeup lasted the whole night - even through a windy ceremony and my veil getting stuck on a tree.  It took only a few hours to do a 6 person bridal party and everyone looked perfect!  She is amazing!!

I came back to The Studio CL today and I got a beautiful, angled bob cut from Jeff Orris.  He is very kind, easy to talk to and talented, he made my haircut look polished, evenly streamlined and angled and it really flatters my face and looks very pretty.  He took his time cutting my hair dry, then shampooing and conditioning it, blowing it out and finishing the cut when dry and blown out.  Jeff put some products in my hair that made it feel and smell great too.  I definitely will come back to him for cuts and for either highlights or single process color.  I think Jeff is a great stylist and I trust him.  He does a great job, I feel so pretty with my new cut!  Prices are within the norm for high end salons in the area and it's well worth it!

I love everything about Studio CL. The staff are all friendly, the prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is great. Lauren has been doing my color for two years and she is fantastic. I get compliments on it all the time and I do not have what you would call naturally beautiful hair. More...

This was my first time here and my first dry hair cut.  They are a very busy salon which I loved because I liked watching what everyone else was having done. Matt was my stylist and I'm obsessed. Yes, he is quiet but he is super kind and truly talented. My hair feels so healthy and looks exactly how I wanted it even though I gave him very little direction. I will absolutely be back!!

This place is great! I miss Sydney! She is incredible. I got a haircut and highlights done by her. Second time, she glossed mine. When I explained to her what I want, she seems to understand exactly what I wanted. I was soo happy. I just moved to Chicago and miss the fact she understood me at one say! Get hair cut and color from Sydney! She's amazing! More...

I found this salon on Yelp and decided to give it a shot after reading the reviews. I had a horrific experience at another salon in center city and after waiting for my hair to grow a bit I decided the time had come to attempt to fix the attrocious job the previous salon had done. After wandering around a bit, I finally found the salon (it is up stairs, above a neighboring restaurant)...I was happy the minute I walked in. The girl at the front desk was friendly, accommodating and quick to get my experience started.My colorist/stylist was named Matt and he was amazing; he was easy to talk to and he took his time to listen to the ideas I had. That being said- this guy gave me the BEST cut and color I've ever had. Hands down. The highlights look completely natural and are super subtle and the hair cut...this guy deserves an award.I came into the salon with the remnants of the worst hair cut I've ever received and I left with a style that felt light, trendy and borderline perfect. He transformed my hair completely without cutting a lot off and the way he cut it makes it simply fall into place with very little effort.Long story short- Matt is amazing at his skill and I will absolutely be returning next time I need a hair appointment. Very, very happy customer. More...

This is a once in a life time opportunity for Philadelphians to grab while it's here. I just met Johnny after moving here from California. The minute he walked up and introduced himself I knew he was not from a small town. He greeted me in a way you would expect when entering a hotel, or a beautiful restaurant. The kind of treatment I thought I would miss when I left my salon (Jose eber)  back home. Turns out, he actually knew a lot the people who worked there from there Vegas location. And he is strikingly similar in style with the owner there, same long hair, hats, and dressed always in black. So instantly I was comfortable. This young and humble stylist who travels back and forth from Philadelphia and NYC really has been all over, he told me about his production work in LA, his start at The Salon in the Wynn hotel Las Vegas, to his move in NY at the Sahag workshop, traveling over sea's to japan to teach, and let me tell you. IT SHOWS! His signature style of cutting is all dry cuts. And no, it's not the same as you would get from someone else. This is the real thing. After our consultation was finished we decided on a shape that would fit me very well... "Couture to my style" he explained. With the first snips, or "chisels" he calls them, I was instantly calm. The look of concentration on him as he created my new look was one of an artist creating a masterpiece. The end result was unbelievable! I can't believe my hair could ever look or feel like this! You are a true artist Johnny. Thank you so much! To top everything off, his wife is also a very well known colorist. They travel in pairs! I don't need a color yet, but I'm pretty sure if she is with him, then her work is out of this world as well! Get them while you can, people like this don't sit in one spot for too long! I will see him my next visit in NY ! More...

I'm not sure what sort of misunderstanding the previous girl had with Sydni, but I've never had anything but positive experiences. Easy to talk with and bounce ideas off of, Sydni always gives me the exact cut and color I'm looking for. Even when dyes mix a bit unpredictably, the final result is always so amazing that I'd swear she'd planned it that way from the start. On top of that, the rest of the staff is super friendly and attentive, the salon is beautifully decorated, and the atmosphere is much more cozy and intimate than I'd expect from a high-brow Rittenhouse location. All in all, I'll continue to give Studio CL and Sydni my business as long as they're around! More...

I always dread getting my hair cut as most stylist I come across never actually give me the cut and style I ask for. I moved to Philly and thought perhaps I would find my salvation amongst the many competitors in such a stellar city. I was very disappointed when I still did not find my hair's soulmate...that is until I came to Studio CL! All the girls here are lovely, but most especially Sydni! I came in, I got a shampoo, and a blow dry before the dry cut started. I was asked what I wanted. I desperately needed a trim, layers and side bangs, but most importantly to keep the length! No problem at all! I got exactly what I wanted and I'm happy to say I will go to no one else to help maintain my mermaid length hair now! More...

I have been going to Studio CL for over 6 years now. The longest I have ever stayed with a hair salon.  Lauren colors and cuts my hair. Everyone there is fabulous, but she's my girl!  She listens to want I  want and delivers! She is just the best!,I have seen other stylists do hair that is beautiful, especially their updos.A lot of guys go to Studio CL too. I love my color and my hair style. I recently had a new keratin treatment with no formaldehyde in it. It is perfect especially for the summer and humidity.Make an investment in yourself and go to a Studio CL.You are worth looking and feeling beautiful every day of your life. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees. More...

I went to see Seiko to get my hair dyed and she did a great job! She's the best colorist there. I hadn't dyed my hair in almost two years, so I went with the ombré. Loved it! It was a drastic, and at the same time, a subtle change when worn in up. The styling assistant was amazing. I don't remember her name, but she was a young girl with short hair and a full sleeve. She was really nice and did my blow dry. COOL THING ABOUT THIS PLACE - They do "dry cuts" like they dry your hair and then cut it. I've only ever gotten my hair cut while it was wet, but with a dry haircut, you can see exactly where the hair falls and how it looks. Everyone I came into contact with was nice to me and respectful. BUT... If I'm paying a minimum of $65 for a blow and cut, shouldn't the stylist be the one doing the work and not give the nice tattooed girl the hardest part? Don't get me wrong, she did an awesome job and talked to me the entire time, got me water, made sure I was comfortable, and was really polite, and the stylist (girl wearing a striped white and yellow shirt in 'photos') just cut my hair and barely spoke to me.The pricing seemed a bit much. I mean, I don't know how they determine the pricing, but I paid $220 for a cut and dye job - not including tips for the colorist, the girl who cut my hair and the stylist asst. - more than I've ever paid, but I figured that's the trade off when you go to a nice salon instead of Super Cuts. Overall, I'll definitely go back to see Seiko for another dye job. The girl that cut my hair didn't do anything extraordinary. She did make my hair feel not as heavy and layered it pretty well, but it wasn't anything special. And Hopefully the stylist assistants there are being recognized for their work. More...

I don't write reviews, but seeing as nobody has recently mentioned Seiko (dunno why!?!?), I need to write this love letter now! hahaSEIKO is the most beautiful asian girl who works here with the longest most gorgeous brown-blond hair you will ever see.  She's super sweet.  Hoping to have hair as pretty as hers, I scheduled an appointment to get myself an ombre hairdo today.  I hadn't dyed my hair since 2005.  I rarely ever change my hair color.  I thought: who better to trust with such a drastic color change than someone with beautifully colored hair?  Apparently she only focuses on color jobs and worked as a colorist in new york.  I have black/dark brown asian hair and she kept my natural dark roots so i won't have to constantly maintain them.  She graduated my hair lighter to the ends to an almost ash brown.  I absolutely LOVE it.  I love the color and how natural it looks.  I showed her a few photos before we started of what I thought I wanted and she had some suggestions too.  She painted the color on with a brush and a paddle thing, which seems to be called "balayage"? (i just googled this..)  If you need a color change, please go see Seiko and you will not regret it :)   I happily left my $20 tip.  I feel like a million bucks!  I got a wavy blow out by Matt.  He was aggressively fast but I loved not having to wait in the chair forever just to blow out my hair after already sitting in a chair for a while getting my hair colored.  And plus, he made me look great!  The only thing that fell short today was my hair wash.  The girl had a super light touch; couldn't feel anything really rubbed onto my scalp so it wasn't as satisfying.  Oh well.  Seiko's color more than made up for this!!Seiko, you made me a very happy girl today.  Thanks, girl!

I went to the Studio CL for the first time and got an amazing haircut. Chris was really easy to talk to and listened to what I wanted- to keep the length but have soft layers. He cut it dry which I never had experienced but he explained that you wear your hair dry, so it allows you to see how the hair falls naturally, which totally made sense. Then he gave me a sleek blowout. Glad I found someone to cut my hair while I'm in Philly! 5 stars. More...

So so happy I found this place! I was new to Philly last year and a friend recommended I check out Studio CL, in particular Artur. Couldn't be happier with my highlights and hair cut. Everyone I interact with at my visits is so polite and remembers to say hello at subsequent appointments. It's gotten to the point where I completely trust Artur's judgement and don't provide much direction. I'm constantly asked where I get it my highlights and have since referred two friends who are also as happy. Let me disclose that I'm very critical of my hair colorists/stylists and have no problem speaking up if it doesn't look natural. Since day one I've been extremely pleased! While I've raved about Artur, my girlfriend sees someone else and her hair looks equally natural. See for yourself! More...

After moving to a different neighborhood I tried a few different salons, hoping to find a suitable replacement to The Beehive in Fairmount where I'd been going for years. Needless to say, I couldn't find one I was happy with, so when I learned my stylist from Beehive, Vanessa, had moved to Studio CL, I had to go.  I highly recommend going to Vanessa whether you need a good cut, color or both. She has a great way of seeing the cut that will work both for your face and the type of hair you have. Any time I have gone to her I get compliments for at least a month afterward. What's more, I'm at the salon for a good 3-4 hours, so I don't want someone who makes boring small talk. With Vanessa you get great snarky, smart conversation to go along with an awesome hair-did.The only thing that keeps this from 5 stars is that the salon has a bit of a strange layout and the bathroom was an ice box. That being said, there's nothing going against CL overall. Everyone there was very nice, the guy at check out actually seemed to care whether I was happy with my hair and Vanessa in particular does an excellent job. More...

This is a gorgeous salon, and everyone who works there is super friendly and accommodating. I came to the salon after my hairdresser and friend Vanessa started working there, and what can I say? The chick can cut some hair. I have pretty crappy hair...super straight and fine. At best, it's difficult hair to work with. But Vanessa always seems to be able to create a gorgeous head of hair out my meager strands. While I've always had small complaints with other hairdressers,as I am VERY particular about my hair,  I have never received anything but a stellar haircut and style from Vanessa. Not only will the haircut be awesome, but you'll have a great time at the salon.  If you're looking to visit the salon, definitely book with Vanessa. You won't be disappointed. More...

I had my hair dry cut at The Studio CL today for the first time by Chris. I was a little nervous because I'd never had a dry cut before, but Chris explained how they work and why they can be advantageous- I have to say I'm thrilled with the result! I told him I was tired of my boring hair and wanted to take as little off as possible, and he gave me a great cut that has a lot of natural movement and frames my face well. I looked infinitely better leaving the salon, I highly recommend this salon and Chris if you can get him!  The cut service includes a wash and blow dry either before or after the cut; I recommend after if you can. Also, since my hair was out of shape from months of not cutting, the cut took some time. Chris was incredibly patient and even came by to check the cut and make finishing touches after the salon assistant washed and dried my hair. You can book online, but I'm not sure how this works if you want a specific stylist. Overall, a great experience and even better hair. I'm converted! More...

I highly recommend everyone booking your next appointment at The Studio CL ! Especially the fabulous Alexandra. Her work is beautiful and her personality is amazing. I always look forward to booking with her. She has been coloring my hair for about five years now, and never once was I unsatisfied. I am very particular with what I want done, and at any time she knows exactly how to perfect it.  Recently I had Great Length Extentions put in my hair by her, and as usual I am totally satisfied and in love with my hair. I like to think I have the best looking hair in the city, always receiving compliments on it as well, and I can certainly thank Alexandra for all of that!! The Studio CL is well maintained, modern and laid back too, which makes my visits comfortable and I certainly never mind my appointments. Everyone is super friendly in the Salon! So if your looking for a new salon, book your next appointment at Studio CL and ask for Alexandra! More...

I went to Studio CL for hair extension removal and a trim.  The reason I had hair extensions was because I wanted to hide a bad haircut I got on a whim while traveling abroad.  By luck, I was assigned to Christi who did a great job trimming away any remnants of the bad cut.  She actually taught me more about hair extensions than the stylist who initially put them in.The reason I am giving four instead of five stars is because the neck cushion at the hair washing station was hard and made my neck ache.  When it comes down to it though Christi did a great job and I will definitely be back.

Okay! Here's the deal I hate cutting my hair I get nervous and every time I do cut it, it turns out nothing like what I wannit to beWith no appointment on a friday afternoon, a very friendly staff and I was immediately taken care of by Sydney she's a sweetheart ! She asked me what I wanted to do with my hair and my only request was keep the length and she did just that I was thrilled with the results and received so many compliments about the new haircut ! I will sure get back there more often More...

I wentto Lauren today for a BIG change, big chop...she was great. I was late and she didn't seem to mind a bit, which was great. The last thing you want to do is piss off the person who is about to cut your hair. She spoke to me about what she thought would be best for my hair and my goals so confidently that I felt totally calm even though I was making a huge decision. She worked slowly, but not like, geez this chick is slow...more like, wow, she cares about what's she's doing and can tell this is important to me. I appreciated her concentration so much, not one hair was treated carelessly.  We talked a bit but it was comfortable being quiet in her chair which was also cool because I'm not huge on the chit chat. When you have super damaged hair like mine and you go to a salon, you're always afraid of getting that disapproving tone because you cut or colored your own hair. She didn't do that (and trust me, I deserved it, I should not be allowed to buy color at CVS past 9 pm...actually box hair color should be locked up at night like alcohol on Sundays, that section should not be 24 hour!) and it made the experience SO nice. Like, I know my hair is jacked, I don't need anyone making me feel worse about it. What she did do is give me an AWESOME haircut that I felt great about. Will be back. More...

I lived in Philadelphia for 2 years, and only discovered Studio CL after 6 months - I never went anywhere else after that. On my first visit I was randomly assigned to Jessica for a haircut, and stayed with her until I moved away. Jess happily answered my questions and listened to my opinions, and she wasn't afraid to tell me (very nicely) if my ideas would not look good. She did a careful and thorough job every single time, and I always got a lot of compliments on my cut and bangs. She is also very pleasant to talk to.As for scheduling - it is very easy to make an appointment over the phone. I've always managed to get an appointment on days and times that work for me. The facilities are well-maintained and clean, and it's in a great location on 19th and Walnut (landmark: La Colombe). It's up a rather narrow flight of stairs, but the space is bright and airy.I have to admit, I planned to review Studio CL and Jess only AFTER I moved away so I could keep them for myself! I will really miss them. More...

Tonya is my hero. Seriously. I moved here two years ago and haven't been able to find anyone to do my hair well. Most places I've gone, they expect me to tell them what my hair should look like. Come on people - I'm a girl but I'm no good at this stuff. I need an expert to help me out and tell me what will look good on me and then be able to execute it. I got referred to Tonya at Studio CL by a friend (who's hair is always fabulous). My experience was nothing short of a miracle. The staff all treated me well and were fun and engaging. Tonya consulted with me and I gave her what bare-bones description of what I thought I wanted and she took that and expanded on it. Was so kind and thoughtful, then proceeded to give me the best haircut of my life. I have never gotten more compliments. It's easy to maintain. I love it. It was honestly the most comfortable I've felt in a salon because I just knew I was in good hands. I will go to Tonya again and again as long as she's cutting hair! She rocks! More...

Unbeknownst to me, I had the owner (Artur) give me a hair cut. This is definitely one of the better hair cuts I have ever had. I was explicit in that I dont want anything funky, just a nice face framing haircut to give the rather limp tresses some volume, and to keep it long. He did exactly that, and I am happy. The only complaint that I have is that I was assuming the lady (I dont remember her name - Melissa/Michelle something like that) was going to cut my hair, and that like in the other yelp reviews for this place, I would be charged somehere between $55-60. Instead, Artur cut my hair, and I was stuck with a bill for $110. Extremely dissapointed about the amount I paid, but no complaints about the cut. Just make sure the person you have an appointment is the one who cuts your hair. More...

I woke up one Saturday with a terrible urge to chop a good chunk of hair. I pulled at my disgustingly long hair literally dying to be rid of it. I called Salon Thalia to see if by miracle my regular Travis would be available for a last minute...of course not! He is great, fun and lovely by the way...So, after checking out Yelp, I called here and one other salon to see if they could squeeze me in because it seemed that all the staff were generally great...I was able to get in here but at the last minute they had to change my stylist to Matt. He came and asked what I wanted, and while I explained I literally got no reaction, so I explained it over and over a few times just to make sure as that was a little worrisome. I wanted about six to seven inches off, VERY obvious layers,v-shaped down the back, and side sweeping long bang...this guys works FAST, super intense, says almost nothing, he stopped to ask once if I was ok because my hair was obviously a lot shorter, i squeaked out a "yes". At about 75% through I already could tell I was going to love it, and I did, and I still do!! It's growing out perfectly, the style still perfectly evident. I intended it for while my hair is straight, but I have curly hair and it looks awesome even when curly. So my point? CHOOSE MATT AND DO NOT BE AFRAID...he's a hair genius, just trust him and go with it.P.S. at only $60 TOTALLY worth it...not sure why there are 3 dollar signs on Yelp More...

Loved this place.I don't ever get my hair cut...ever.  My last hair cut was 5 years ago.Picked Studio CL strictly because they do dry haircuts...not an unfriendly person in the entire salon.  The girls at the front desk could probably tell I was a nervous wreck, they led me over and introduced me to Matt.Matt was great...before we started anything he wanted to know what I wanted done with my hair, and I appreciated that he gave his honest opinion on what I wanted.  Matt is very quiet, I didn't mind, he was very focused on the cut.  I'd rather have a great haircut than a stylist that talks my ear off and doesn't pay attention.  The haircut turned out great, it was exactly what I told him that I wanted.  I did forget to book my next appointment, but I will absolutely be returning to Matt.Just a side note, they only accept tips in cash.

Never would I think to write a review on my experience on anywhere until today. I got off the train in Center City where the weather was excruciatingly hot, muggy, and downright miserable. I felt like I was carrying a mop on my head of something that would not remotely resemble the look and feel of "healthy" hair. Today was Wednesday, "Hump Day," I thought to myself. But the day only dragged on longer. From the sixth floor of my barely air conditioned building, I looked out of the window and saw women walking the streets of Philly in hot and humid weather (in a more often than not wool suit). It's one thing to go to work in the tropics, but it's another to do it while wearing a suit and to look good! The cure for my terrible day? A wash, blow out, and cut at Studio CL. Never have I been to a salon for a haircut before. I've always had this fear of some stylist who would lop my entire head off, if not more! Call it trust issues, but hair is important, and for some, hard to grow out. I conquered my fear today when I climbed up the steps leading to Studio CL's salon. I didn't have an appointment. This was all just on whim. When I got there, I was taken care of immediately. Maddy cut my hair, and I must say...I THINK WE HAVE A WINNER! I felt like Anne Hathaway's character, Mia,  from The Princess Diaries when Paola reveals the "new" Amelia Thermopolis Renaldi. Maddy did an excellent job! She removed the bulk of my hair without sacrificing length! She truly did give me my own haircut, not some cookie cutter style that some stylists pass off. This haircut frames my face perfectly. The best part? Maddy even took some time to tell me how to take care and style my hair. There was no rush when she was blowing drying my VERY thick Asian hair. Overall, the appointment took an hour and 15 minutes. With this kind of service, I'll definitely go back! Granted, the cut cost $65 for Maddy, but it was money well spent! You know what they say: a good haircut can make you look like a million bucks. From then on, it did. **I would also like to mention that Maddy also cuts hair at the Rosa Martinez for Artur Studio in Jenkintown, PA. BUT, if you're looking for a change of seen, a mix of edginess, contemporary, and a bad of conservative feel -- go with the Studio CL at Rittenhouse. It won't disappoint! More...

I'm one of those girls that hates getting her hair cut so I was hesitant to go somewhere new. I called and made the appointment and the girl on the phone assured me that Matt was very good and I had nothing to worry about. The salon is easy to find but the space is small. Matt was very quiet which is not what I expected but once his hands touched my hair and he started work his quiet was actually reassuring because I felt like he was laser focused. Wash, Dry, Cut is the order and it is the way to go! This is BEST haircut I have ever had and I know it is because of Matts skill and the fact that it was cut dry. This is the place to go! and I will be going back (already have my next appointment booked)!P.S. You get a great head massage with the shampoo too! More...

Legally Blonde moment:  "I got bangs!" [jumping & clapping]Actually, that's a lie... it was my intention to get bangs.  Thankfully Jess from Studio CL took one look at me and asked in the nicest, non-judgmental way possible if I styled my hair every day.  She was very polite - the answer was clearly no.  She talked me into a more manageable cut that would complement my square face & big forehead.  As I do with any new salon I expressed my fears of the Asian mullet.  Jess perfectly understood & after two visits I'm hooked.  For $55 you get a shampoo, blowout, & cut in that order.  I love that the dry cut gives real time results - no waiting to see the real length of your wet tresses.  If you book your next appointment in advance & don't reschedule (I've yet to be able to do this) they offer a discount on their services.

I will start of this review by mentioning that I do not like getting my hair cut nor do I do it often.I had a day off from work and noticed that I was in desperate need of a hair cut. I hopped on Yelp to see what others were saying about salons in the area.  One of the first placed that popped up was Studio Cl.  I read the reviews which were all glowing and decided to give it a try.  I walked in without an appointment and they couldn't have been nicer.  Initially, they asked me to wait 15 minutes, which would have been fine.  A few minutes later they had someone ready to take care of me. Jessica was INCREDIBLE!  She was so nice and listened to exactly what I wanted and made it happen.  I felt so comfortable with her right from the start.  I even let her do a single process color on my hair.I got the best hair cut I have gotten in years (not that there have been too many) and will be returning to Jessica!

I wish I could give Studio CL more than 5 stars. They do an incredible job. I was fortunate enough to have a friend recommend me and quickly became obsessed.Everything about this place is great. I love that it is a teaching school as well as a trendy salon. I love that is is not your typical salon where you sit in uncomfortable chairs, surrounded by the same looking mirrors and set ups and feel as though you are going through a routine. The studio is super cute inside and different from any other place I have been. I have Jess cut my hair and she is a saint!! She is super cute, friendly, and literally has cut my hair exactly how I envision everytime. I have had my hair very long for years, and have always been scared to cut it. Jess cut about 5 inches off my hair and I absolutely loved it. The dry cut method is unique as well and I don't think I will ever want to have my cut again any other way. I love that you can see the results instantly and not be shocked when the blow dry is complete. Not to mention they are extremely inexpensive considering the location and what else is around. I am shocked to have such amazing results at such an affordable price when I have tried other places, paid way more, and been extremely disappointed. More...

My family and I have been going to Artur to get our hair cut for about 8 years now! He is stylish, creative, one of a kind, and a sweetheart. When I walk down the street with my bouncy curls that are cut and highlighted to perfection, it's thanks to Artur and his amazing team! Another plus, the location of his salon is right next to Rittenhouse park so it's right next to everything you may want in Rittehouse: shopping, great food, coffee, a walk, etc. I recommend this salon to everyone.I LOVE THEM!PS. he has his own hair product line. I use the hair spray because it's light, but does the trick! More...

Alexey is the best! A friend referred me to him when I moved to the area in July. He has given me 3 haircuts and done my highlights. Every time I have enjoyed my experience in the salon - nice, courteous staff - and my haircut. Alexey is patient and understanding in helping me figure out what I want to do with my hair. He was especially helpful in getting the right color for my highlights. He listens and asks questions to make sure you walk out happy! More...

Alexey is wonderful!!!  I have been going to him to get my haircut for about 4 years now, and I think that I am stuck with him forever!  He is meticulous, precise, up-to-date on the latest techniques (dry haircut) and styles, experienced, and knows which haircut will be the most flattering and attractive on each client.  I always feel happy, lively, and refreshed on the days that I go to see him!  I highly recommend Alexey to everyone!

Alexey is a sweetheart who knows hair, and will do whatever it takes to give you look you desire. So far I've been to the Studio CL twice- the first time to get my hair cut, the second time for a gloss treatment.I've never had my hair cut with the dry method before, and it was a lot of fun to watch. It takes about a full hour- Alexey pays close attention to precision and detail.The gloss treatment is a new concept to me, but was recommended by Alexey. For $25, you can get a semi-permanent gloss treatment that lasts about two months. Mine turned my hair a rich dark brown with red overtones. Lovely. More...

Not sure about the actual hair salon part - but I'm definitely sure about Micheal! He does the waxing at Studio CL. I've followed Micheal around from few different spas.  I've been going to him for about 3 years now.  He is BY FAR the best in Philadelphia - possibly the best waxer I've ever had - and I've had alot of eyebrow waxers.  Micheal also has a great personality, and is fun to talk to.  Additionally, he is always so accommodating, and his prices are reasonable for the quality of service. Go here - if for nothing else, him.  All the women who get their hair done here do look super cute when they leave, so it's probably a good scene for getting your hair done! More...
