"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

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!
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!
AWESOME COLORIST!!!!! – Bruce is an amazingly talented and absolutely awesome colorist!! He is truly passionate about what he does.Bruce goes above and beyond. He has completely transformed my hair.Bruce gave me the most beautiful blonde highlights. My hair feels so incredibly soft and shiny. He really cares about the health of your hair.I have never been so happy with my hair. He is also an awesome person! Bruce works magic!! you will NOT be disappointed!!!
An artist is an artist... – So I am one of those loyal clients who paid top dollar in a top of the line salon who's name ( of which I will not mention) was just cool to say. I really wanted to love my color and didn't really want to give up on the colorist I used for a very long time of whom I needed to book with 8 weeks in advance as if my own schedule isn't busy enough! The problem was my hair color wasn't great anymore and I knew it. I stopped hearing the usual compliments and started seeing the inconsistency and missed spots. After giving my colorists the benefit of the doubt... THREE TIMES I said done which brings me to Bruce Slemmer at Beans Beauty on Chestnut. After a lengthy consultation which was impressive all by itself I decided to give him a shot. People raved about his mad genius approach although still skeptical I let the artist do his thing. All I can say is that after 4 hours of corrective color and 100 or so foils later I am not happy but estatic with my color. He is a true blond colorist guru who loves what he does who made me feel like i was his only client. Mad genius? I LOVE him!!!! He is the sweetest and proud to say my new colorist!
Amazing Individualized Results – Truth be told, we all want to be blonde (or at least think that we could pull it off!) Even in a city as large as Philly it is extremely hard not to be cornered by the black haired, black tee shirt brigade who thinks that blonde is one color!
Bruce Slemmer understands color and how to make each woman an individual and play off of her hair texture, face structure and lifestyle. You don't leave Bruce feeling like a Stepford wife with the faux Palm Beach blonde of every other woman over 40 in the city. He tones to PERFECTION!!! He makes you the beautiful blonde that you feel you were born to be.
No damage, no frizz and no unwanted brassiness. He doesn't try to hawk product at you but will recommend the essentials necessary for you to keep looking salon fresh.
I have been in the city for three years and have tried all of the Philly hair ICONS and can tell you that Bruce is the best and I know I want the best! Don't you?
Center City stylists are going to have to up their game to keep from losing clients to Bruce......because he is back with a vengeance! and armed with a vicious blow dryer! (BLOWOUTS by BRUCE are AMAZING!)
See you at Beans (I will be the girl with the great blonde hair :-)
Brought my hair back to life! Best color in the city! – I have been going to Bruce for almost 2 years now and he has completely transformed my hair! When I first found Bruce, my hair was overhighlighted and over bleached and breaking near the root! I was devastated and desperate to find someone who would help me get the best color and make my hair healthy! Bruce listened to what I wanted, told me his plan, and two years later, my hair is incredibly long, healthy and a beautiful blonde color! My hair has never been healthier! It was the best decision I ever made to go to Bruce! I am so comfortable when I go, that I don't have to worry about the color or what he is doing because I trust him 100% and know that my hair will turn out great! Now that he is at Beans in center city, its so convenient and easy to get to! And it's great to walk through Beans as you leave as you have access to thousands of great beauty products too!
