Finally Found a Great Hair Salon – I went to A Cut Above for the first time after Skip was able to slot me in for a last minute appointment. He was great! Gave a fabulous consultation and really listened to what I wanted. As for that review about the shower cap and pulling hair through, obviously that person has never had gentle highlights before and doesn't understand that this is now preferrable over the old foil method. I will definately be going back here. Be advised, they get busy on saturdays, so I would recommend going for an early morning appointment.
Shady reviews – I agree with all the other one-star reviews. Proceed with caution. Lots of shady reviews here.
What a joke! – I made the mistake to try this place a few weeks ago. I read some of the positive reviews and although the shop looks really run down, I made an appointment for cut and color with Skip. Once inside, I could not help but notice the outdated decor and overall dusty environment. After getting a shampoo from an older lady, Skip went to work. Obviously I could not believe my eyes when he put a plastic supermarket cap on my head and started to pry my hair through the holes. To make a long story short, I came out looking and feeling very cheap. Please take my advise and avoid this dump! I should have known better just by driving by and seeing the empty parking lot. For some reason I'm not believing the positive reviews now, must be some people with very low standards...
Bryn Mawr's Best!! – This was my very first visit to A Cut Above in Bryn Mawr and it definitely won't be my last. I had the same hair stylist for many years, but never have I walked out of a salon saying "I love it" about how my cut and color turned out! Skip La Spina did an amazing job! He asked me what I was looking for in the style and then explained to me what he thought would be best and most flattering for me. He also asked me what I liked most about my highlights and told me exactly what he was going to do to make them look like how I wanted them to. I was blown away with how it turned out. I absolutely love it!! His assistant Amy styled it and as she was doing so explained what she was doing so I could do the same thing for myself at home. The staff was very professional, very nice and very efficient. I have had so many compliments about the cut and color and I have recommended to everyone that has asked to check out this salon.
Look No Further - BEST Stylist – My hair has been under the care of Skip LaSpina since 1991. No matter what challenge I have presented, including hair changes from pregnancy, thyroid cancer, aging and weight gain/loss, Skip intuitively knows how to work with my hair to give me the cut and texture most flattering to my face. His knowledge of styling products is always current and I liken him to a pharmacist for my hair. He actively solicits feedback regarding the cut and hair care products. He's not satisfied until his customer is satisfied, which I always am. From Wawa to Wegman's, I can always count on complements about my hair from random strangers. Thanks to Skip!!!!
Best Style For A Man On The Main Line... – Skip always gives me a great cut. He was trained by the best and he knows how to make a guy like me with thinning hair look good. Great prices too!
Very Fishy... – I'm new to the area and was looking for a good salon when I happened upon this one on Citysearch. After reading the reviews, I'm convinced they don't deserve the shiny rating they currently have. It strikes me as odd that they get one bad review, then out of the blue 8 people decide to write 5-star reviews of the place over the course of only 4 days... Seriously, what are the odds?? Sounds more like the owner trying to stuff the ballot box to me... But that's just my personal opinion.
A real "Cut Above" – If you're looking for a great hair salon that will take the time to determine what you want, then deliver it, you can't do any better than here. I've got really long hair, and Sophie is the best -- I wouldn't let any one else touch my hair for a cut or highlights! No worries about having a bad cut/color which will take forever to grow out. I'll drive an hour to see her, or even wait months if I'm out of town. She takes the time to get my hair just the way I want it for whatever occasion or season.
Out of Towner's dream salon – My boyfriend lives in Philadelphia so I come out here often to visit him and the only person I will let TOUCH my hair is SOPHIE! I have no idea how that other girl could say that instead of 2 she took off 8-10 inches??? I mean didn't you LOOK at your hair before you left the salon????? ANYWAYS! A Cut Above is a great salon with a wonderful staff and SOPHIE is the best by far! Thanks Sophie for all the great things you've done with my hair!!!!
SOPHIE IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!! – I have been getting my hair cut by SOPHIE at A cut above for over 20 years, And every time i go the experience is just better and better. I have never had a problem with my hair and would never let anyone touch it besides SOPHIE she is the BEST!!!.......I have NO CLUE what LUTER is talking about?
