Best salon in PA !!!!!!!! – There was a warm calm welcome with beautiful art work the employees are so great and the service is above and beyond I loved every minute of it and I will be going back again and to top it off my hair looks great!!!! It's been so long n hard to find the right stylist that don't over cut and knows the health part of hair then just styling!!!
Best Salon in PA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – This is the best hair experience I have ever had! As you enter the salon it is warm, clean and inviting. The entire staff is friendly, well-spoken, and informative. I have had many terrible experiences with my hair. The natural texture is a very tight curl. It is very thick and every other salon I have been to has made me feel like there is something wrong with it or its too much work for them. There have been several times that I have even been charged extra due to the texture of my hair! All of my hair shame ended once I let the ALTernative team take over. My hair is soft bouncy and very healthy. I will not let anyone else touch my hair. Thanks to everyone at the salon especially the owner Anika...she helped me understand that my BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL and I can never thank her enough.
The Best Natural Hair Salon (new address 1517 W Girard Ave) – Ryan Foster Inc is the best hair salon in Philadelphia hands down! Essence says so, Philly Hot list say so, Rolling Out Magazine says so and so do I. All of their stylist are professional, timely and full of creative juices. You never have to know what you want, just make an appointment and sit in the chair. I felt like I was on the Jettson's and sat in one of those instant makeover machines. Anika Thompson is the owner and she is the most pleasant and informative stylist I have ever met. She educated me on all of my hair issues and gave me the confidence I needed to wear my natural hair without relaxer. The one thing I learned that stood out the most was, my natural hair could be soft and silky straight one week with her product Str8 Away Sufle (SAS) and curly the next with her product 10Dril. Anika created a natural product line called ALTernative and is the best product line I have ever tried. She puts every other line to shame with the results and to my disbelief I was able to recreate the same finish at home once I bought the line. The salon services are worth every penny you spend, but I must let you know if you sit in Anika's chair the prices are a tad bit higher (but I would never complain) and you will have her undivided attention the entire visit. I love my new salon and I would suggest that if you are in the area, please make sure you visit this wonderful salon at 1517 W Girard Ave Philadelphia Pa 19130 (215)769-0118. Its clean, beautiful and full of character! I love love love, Thank You Anika for my new relationship with my hair, I Love It.

Very nice experience...... – I must say that I was very pleased with my hair after visiting Ryan Foster. I was not prepared to take the big chop, but after a quick consult with Anika I did it. My hair looked fabulous!!
NY Brownstone in Philly – I enjoyed the professionalism of everyone at Ryan Foster. Anika, the owner, was informative and genuinely interested in giving me the style and cut I not only wanted but needed.
very sophiscated, friendly & sheek environment – Anika takes care of your natural hair, she is also friendly & down to earth. She is creative with different styles
Best salon in Philly – The atmosphere of this salon is warm and welcoming. The stylist Anika, is the most friendly, professional and knowledgeable stylist I've ever met. Using only organic products she created herself, she left my hair feeling moisturized, silky smooth and bouncy. Anyone who desires healthy, strong beautiful hair would be crazy not to try this salon.
Sometimey – Anika can be a great stylist. She is a wealth of sometimes good information concerning hair. She can be flighty and inconsistant. She plays favorites and although ALOT better, apoointments aren't always appointments, she will bump someone in front of you in a heart beat. She will smile in your face and talk when you leave. Put on aires BIG TIME!!! She cuts hair VERY well!!! Styling is favorable also :) Needs an assistant/ receptionist. Prices need to be posted.
