Laid back, quality, hair style – Despite the hipster feel to this place, everyone is super laid-back, nice, and extremely skillful with a pair of scissors. It's cute and clean interior aesthetic matches the mentality of the business - they are not big on chemical filled, contrived hair-dos (apparently Keratin treatments are offered, but are done sparingly), and instead the goal is to achieve gorgeous, healthy looking styles that work with a person's natural hair type and life-style.
Despite an avoidance of complicated chemical processes, the haircuts are awesome, and those stylists know how to work a blow-dryer and curling iron. Every-time I've been there, I've felt like a million bucks due to the carefully messy curls I desired.
Best salon in the city! – I have been a loyal customer to HeaD AreA since last winter and would never, ever consider going anywhere else! I see Julie and she's amazing. She's an expert when it comes to hair and really understands color and how to bring out the physical best in her clients. She's also a meticulous hair cutter and treats each cut like it's the best cut she's ever given. If you like to experiment and try new looks, Julie is definitely the girl to see! Actually, you could see any one of the stylists at HeaD AreD and leave looking awesome. As for the salon in general, the staff is always friendly and extremely helpful. Admittedly it's not a cheap (I've never spend less than $120 on cut and color) but for how good you look, it's worth every penny. This is a salon where you get exactly what you're pay for. Keep in mind, though, that appointments are tough to book and you'll probably need to do so at least 4-6 weeks in advance.
Great edgy haircuts – I am loving my haircuts from JoJo at HeadArea. I am actually moving to New England and will be returning to have my hair cut by her. This salon is great for giving great cuts that are edgy without being over the top or crazy. I am always happy with my cut right after I leave the salon. I never have to go home and get used to it or play with it - its perfect! I would def. check out this salon if you want something stylish and not the same old boring cut. The atmosphere is very chill to and not obnoxious or loud like most salons. This is def. the best salon to check out in Philadelphia
love it – I have been going to Tami for years at Ruth's salon and am so pleased to she is truly where she belongs. A fun creative atmosphere where you can really see artists at work. The staff here are all so friendly too! not to mention shopping, which all girls love.. give Tami a try , you won't be disappointed
Great Hair Time and Time Again! – I have been going to Lauren for over a year now at Head Area and have yet to have a bad experience. She is extremely professional and incredibly talented, especially with my color!
When I moved to Philadelphia, I tried so many different salons, including the ones that charge outrageous prices, but was less than impressed with the results. Head Area provides its customers with the perfect blend of experience, great customer service, and reasonable prices. I highly recommend it!
Hip Hair – I have been there twice and I love how current the stylists are with their cuts. Ruth is great and so are the prices.
Great Haircut! – I have been searching years for the right stylist to give my usually boring bob-with-bangs some hip style and edge - without the edgy attitude. After reading the reviews on this site, I just had to call to find out what kind of prices to expect. I was pleasantly shocked to find such reasonable pricing for such a well reviewed salon. I went to Nick at Head Area for the first time yesterday and left with exactly the look I've been longing for! Nick listened to my likes and dislikes and made me feel very comfortable with the experience. His attention to detail and precision with his cutting gave me the best haircut I've had in a long time! Ruth also did my color and talked with me at length about my color choices to be sure we'd get the right shade of chocolate brown. Its perfect! Nick, Ruth, and the rest of the staff were really nice and easy to talk to during my three hour cut and color - a definite plus if you're going to be spending that kind of time in a salon. Thanks for such a great experience!
We are so pleased that you had such a great experience. We really love what we do at HeaD AreA and when that translates into our clients' daily lives, it makes what we do even more rewarding. Welcome to the family, we look forward to seeing you again.
If you want your hair to look cool this is the place! – The fact that I live in New York City and make special trips down to this salon should say it all. Julie is amazing! Im really into bobs right now, and every time I leave the salon I say "No, I swear, this time its my favorite." She and the rest of the staff are always ahead of the trends, and will never do something to your hair that you wouldn't want. They also make you feel comfortable and want to get to know you. I highly highly recommend it.
Oh it hurts to be this good... – I just returned from my second trip to Head Area. Lauren cut my hair today, and I think she did an amazing job. She was very friendly and took her work seriously. I love my haircut and my bangs are fantastic! Everyone there rocks! My boyfriend experienced his first cut at Head Area today with Nick, and he was equally as pleased! We both can't wait to go back again!
Eh – My very first visit to Head Area had me in the chair with Lauren. She was rather arrogant and I did not feel welcomed in the least. My cut was fine, however, my highlights were completely wrong. You couldnt even tell I had any. For the price, I would have expected something more than decent.
