"Once we got past his laborious technique (he folded 122 foils on our shoulder length hair), we realized Slemmer was a mad genius. He prescribed two shades of lowlights in the back, gold at the crown, and baby blonde on our bangs "to bring out those baby blues" Our hair had a champagne sheen for months-proving there's a method to his madness.-Allure Magazine

I was very loyal to my salon (a south Jersey/Philadelphia institution), going since I was 13, but as my hair started to get brassier and yellower, and my husband asked me why my hair was so dark, I knew I had to take the plunge and find someone new.
After searching for colorists who specialize in blondes, I found fabulous reviews for Bruce, and decided to give him a try and I could not be more thrilled to have found him! The first time I saw him I spent over 3 hours in the chair, but it was so worth it. My champagne-white blonde looks so natural and lasts for over 2 months. Previously I would be back at the salon every 6 weeks for a whole head highlight because it grew out poorly. I highly recommend Bruce, he is a genius with color!!
Bruce is an amazing stylist, both me and my fiance go to him. As a male I was concerned because Bruce primarily focuses on color and female styles, after my first cut I was put at ease. He does an amazing job and I have never had a haircut like his in my life. He made my hair work for me instead of me trying to make it look like something it is not. I would recommend him to anyone. As for blonde color he is the man, I remember the first time I saw my fiance after Bruce did her hair and I was amazed, I couldn't believe it could look that way. From color to cuts Bruce is the best and I will follow him anywhere.
Bruce is a miracle worker! I found Bruce in September when I needed extreme corrective color for my blonde hair. My hair was bleached out and felt like straw; I thought it was beyond repair. I did some research and saw that Bruce specialized in corrective color for blondes and was even voted Philly's top colorist. The first time I went to see him he kept me in his chair for 6 hours meticulously fixing my hair. When I looked in the mirror that day I couldn't believe how he had corrected my color! Not only was my hair back to its normal blonde, it had never looked better. Bruce takes his time with clients and uses pictures to really get an idea of how a person perceives herself and wants to look like. Not only did he correct my hair that day, he has continued to make my hair stronger and healthier every time I visit him. I've followed Bruce to two salons and will continue to be a client; I've never found someone who's not only a genius with color AND cuts, but really loves what he does and cares about his clients. Everyone asks who does my hair and I'm proud to recommend Bruce to anyone!!
When I first moved to Philadelphia last summer, I was concerned about finding the right colorist because I am so picky about my blonde hair. I figured it would take several tries before finding the right person. Did I ever luck out when I made an appointment with Bruce Slemmer! His work is terrific and he gives a fabulous cut. Not only that - he's a really nice guy. I also like the salon setting of Siojo - very comfortable and friendly. Easy parking. YAY
I first went to Bruce in 2001 when he was in Newtown and absolutely fell in love with him! He did wonders with my hair - beautiful blonde highlights and a great cut. When he left Newtown, I followed him into the city to the next two salons. I finally stopped going to Bruce because of the owner of the salon he was at. However, this past spring, I decided I really needed to find Bruce again and I did - here at Beans. I was not disappointed - he was the same wonderful Bruce - maybe even better!!! My hair looks fantastic! Unfortunately, I retired to SC at the end of Sept. and I am going to really miss Bruce. Thank heavens my son and his fiance (who I introduced to Bruce and she loves him too!) live in Philly and are getting married in March, so I will be back to have my hair done by him again - I can't wait!!!!!
Bruce is fantastic and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for fabulous hair! What impresses me the most about Bruce is how meticulous he is. At my first appointment, Bruce spent a significant amount of time getting to know me and what I was looking for in a hair style.Since then, it doesn't matter if he is cutting, coloring, or doing a Keratin treatment, Bruce is extremely thorough and I never leave the salon without being completely amazed! I have long chestnut brown hair and when I came to Bruce my ends were dead, my cut lacked style and my color was brassy. Bruce has my hair back in excellent condition and I love the color and the cut. I have been going to Bruce for about 6 months now and I completely trust him to do whatever he wants with my hair. He vision is amazing and I am so happy that I found him!
Bruce is absolutely the very best, not only in coloring, but also the very best in cutting and styling! As a true blonde in my youth, I thought those days of having shiny, sexy, healthy blonde hair were over. Not so!! This 57 year old was getting double and triple processing which was destroying the texture and health of my hair. Bruce turned this around. His magic touch with color has my hair so healthy now, and the movement and bounce with his cut is amazing. My husband loves him and has never met him. Everyone believes I look so much younger since I have been his customer for almost a year now. Living in the suburbs, the drive into the city with traffic and parking, had been a concern; but certainly not enough to keep me from coming. Thank you Bruce, you're worth it!
I struggled for years with Brass, no one could ever help/ correct my hair!!! Bruce is the first person in 14 years of highlighting my natural DARK brown hair that can get it to that ash white blonde. No brass, no orange! I know every natural dark haired person has this trouble. You'd be crazy to go to anyone else! He listens to what you want and knows everyone's hair is different. On top of it all, he's awesome to talk to :) If you are looking for beautiful blonde hair or highlights...Bruce Slemmer at Beans Beauty. :)))
Bruce is the best! Seriously..no joke! His talent with color and cuts, his honesty..beyond anyone I've ever let touch my hair. I trust him. No higher compliment can I give. He never over "trims" my hair like so many have before. That is just one of so many reasons I've not been tempted to let anyone touch my hair since finding him. 6 years and still in love with what Bruce does for me! I drive well over an hour to see him now that I don't live in Philly but his results are soo worth the trip!

He has completely transformed my hair.Bruce gave me the most beautiful blonde highlights. My hair feels so incredibly soft and shiny.
