Bad DIY bang trim? Michael has fixed mine several times now. Seriously my haircut looks intentional and fab. Yeah! Michael's got great personality and professionalism too. And love a salon that lets me remove my blouse and put a smock on before a cut - less hair all over my outfit. Tip: is cash only but there is a PNC bank across the non-busy one-way street.
KUDOS TO TRAVIS!!! MANY PEOPLE TRY ... BUT HE SUCCEEDS!!!
Travis Valdez is an exceptionally talented hair stylist who succeeds in both perfection and creativity. As a lawyer, it is important to me to have not only a stylish look but also a classic one. Travis listens very carefully and is responsive to the client's wishes, but then he also manages to add a little bit of magic to make his hair style creative and fresh. If you're looking for a professional hair stylist who is attentive and innovative and an expert in his field, I would recommend Travis extremely highly and without hesitation.
Not going back to Salon Thalia – 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.
Phyllis, It is unfortunate that you would choose this platform to post the letter that you wrote me not only to try to discredit me but to involve an innocent employee of Salon Thalia. You had been a client of mine for years and you always left happy, except for those last couple of months with the shorter style you chose to do because of your injury, I did tell you that it would be difficult for you to manage because your keratin treatment would then be all cut out, against my professional opinion i decided to give you what you requested. I am sorry that you were unhappy with the results, it has always been my goal to exceed my clients expectations.
Round 2 – 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!
Many Thanks to 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...
YES GIRL! – AFTER GOING HERE ICAN'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE!
I ONLY LET TRAVIS TOUCH MY HAIR!
MICHAEL G - BEST COLOR! – 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!!
Michael G is AMAZINNG! – 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.
Travis rocks! – 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 :-)
