anyone know where alberto is? – Alberto has always done an amazing job on my hair with cut and color. Does anyone know if and where he is cutting hair? Thanks!
I'm Moving! - Borica – To all of my clients:
I just wanted to let you know that I will no longer be working at Glow Salon. I will be working 4 blocks down the street at 5th Avenue Hair Salon located at Levering St. and Main St. To book an appointment please call, 215-482-2226. Thank you and hope to see you soon!
Addicted – Ive been going to Alberto for over 15 years. Have followed him from Bala to Jenkintown to Manyunk and finally to Glow for the last few years. I always know I can count on a great cut, and now that Im in my 50s, fabulous color!
I trust him completely!
Borica Rocks – before a friend recommended Glow to me, I had been to about 5 different hair salons in the philadelphia area, and i wasn't satisfied with anyone of them enough to make a second appointment. However, after one visit to Glow, I was sold. If you're looking for perfect color or cut, go see the amazing Borica at Glow!! He's charismatic, knows exactly what look best suits you for each season, and accommodates your schedule. i have never been anything but thrilled with my cut and color!! i recommend him to anyone looking for a consistently reliable stylist!
Glowing all the Way!!! – If you are looking for color, cut or even just a blow out, Glow is definitely the salon you should be calling! Between the great atmosphere and the energetic stylists and workers, it feels more like visiting friends than having a hair appointment! I have been going to see Borica for as long as I can remember and after every time I am more happy than the last! Alberto, the owner of the salon does incredible work as well. I have never found a salon where I can trust two stylists to color my hair! Also, the new line of products they switched to is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! While I was getting my hair washed, the smell of vanilla cupcakes filled the air! It was to die for and made my appointment that much more enjoyable! As always, my hair turned our perfect and I reccommend this salon for everybody!!!!
not what it used to be – I have been going to Glow Salon for the past 4 years and I am disappointed to say that it is just no longer the great salon it used to be. During my most recent visit, i found out that my stylist (and the former owner) Carla Barone is no longer with Glow. The change in management has not worked out well. The once great salon is now just mediocre at best. After feverishly searching the internet, i found out that Carla is now up the street at her brand new salon call Bardot. I have been going there ever since and couldn't be happier!
Glad to be back – I have been going to GLOW salon for the past 7 years and recently have stopped due to the femal partner.
I have never felt so uncomfortable and unwelcome as I
have the past few visits. In the past I loved the staff from the front desk to the woman who washes hair, even the small Spanish women who sweeps the floor continually, they were all very welcoming and fun.
But you could tell the tension jumped when Carla was around. She had that fake smile and concern look, very obvious you were not welcome if you were not there for her.
Now that I know she is gone and the negativity is gone with her ,I will be back. I am not a metro type guy but I really liked how Alberto cut my hair and how he took the time and interest on a simple cut.
I have read some of the reviews and never do I argue a person’s opinion, but I have to say they all sounded so scripted. Quite the coincidence I would say.
I think that Glow Salon will only be better now.
Who is Cristi Fish? What a review are you a relative of Carla's?
BEST OF LUCK – I have know Carla Barone for 8yrs or so, and I actually worked with her @ Glow Salon, for 2yrs, and in that time quickly found out why she has been styling hair for over 20 yrs!! She is amazing, very detail oriented, Fun and truly loves her passion! I am so excited she has decided to take the next step, and really let her artistic abilities shine!! Wishing you all the best!!!!
The Masters at GLOW – I've been a proud patron of Glow salon since it doors opened 8 years ago. I'd flown 4 times a year from CA to PA just to get my hair done by Alberto, who is the most talented and knowledgable hair artist I've met. This is a very upscale and modern salon with excellent service, and very professional but friendly atmosphere. For over two decades I've been looking for someone who can work with my unruly hair here and haven't been able to find it. Glow has always made me glow like no one can. So, if you want expertise, honest and the best hair ever you go to the masters at GLOW! You don't know me, but you won't regret trusting me on this.
Best in the Philadelphia area – I recently started going to Glow salon and I love it. I am always in Manyunk for business so I called to make an appt on a referral from a client to sit with Alberto. I had a great experience from start to finish. The front desk staff greeted me with a smile when I checked in. No sooner had I sat down Albertos assistant called me back. Before she washed my hair, Alberto came over to introduce himself and hear what I wanted to do with my hair. Despite not being able to articulate exactly what I wanted Alberto was able to read between the lines I have medium thickness, short hair. I am used to going to a barber and was hesitant to use a male stylist due to the fact that they dont clppers all all the time. I was blown away with Albertos ability to give me an actual hair cut,not just ashape up My cut is great! He he cut it just right so I'm able to blowdry and have some volume. What topped it off was that while he was cutting I asked him how to get shine in my hair. All of the products that say they give shine just make my hair flat. Alberto suggested that I get a glaze. I was thrilled! He put the glaze on and blew my hair dry. It's been 3 weeks since my appt and I still see shine and my cut looks like it was just done. I will be back in 4 weeks to see Alberto again. I highly recommend the salon, Alberto especially!! He s extremy virsatile with whatevr type of client sits with him not to mention a pleasure to be around
