great place for a cut! – Richard Nicholas Salon gives a great cut and they are in a convinient location. Ask for Jess. They carry bumble and bumble products
Great Service EVERY Visit! – I have never gotten a bad haircut by Erin in the 3 years I have been going to her! Rebecca is great for color!
Joe M for fantastic color and cut every time! – I found Joe M. several years ago when I first moved to Philadelphia from CA. I've been going to him for 5 years now and am never disappointed. Joe takes the time to listen to what I want. On the occasion when I want to try something new, he makes suggestions and I always leave there looking amazing. We have done both long and short cuts as well as color treatments. He's a pro. Be prepared to call at least a few weeks in advance to schedule. Its worth the wait!
Everyday someone compliments my hair! – I have lived in Philadelphia forever and have to tried every saloon in town. I was never fully satisfied with my hair until I met Joe M. at Richard Nicholas. In my opinion he is the best stylist/colorist in this city. He is great to talk to and has kept my hair cut and color updated over the years. Richard Nicholas has great service and always accommodates my busy schedule.
Joe...the guy in the front – This place has more than one Joe. Ask for the one who is by the entrance. He'll give you a great haircut, and he's fun to talk to. He's in demand, and for good reason, so be sure to call ahead for an appointment.
Maria Finzio - Ask for her by name – I was referred to Maria by a colleague. I have extremely wavy hair and my stylist didnt seem to be able to give me a good look. I went to Maria a few days ago. My hair never looked better. I am going back to her for color next week. Thanks, Maria. Great Meeting you.
Great Place for Great Hair!!! – I have nothing but great things to say about this salon! I discovered this salon when I relocated from the NYC Metro area 2 years ago and have never been disapointed.
I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair! Joey has worked with me to create a great style (that I can care for easily) and Rebecca is wonderful with my color--which is no easy task with LOTS of gray and my love of highlighted blonde hair.
The staff is great---and they also have the best shampoos in town.
I can't imagine going anywhere else!
Fabulous Color! – I have been trying to find a colorist to meet my expectations since I moved to Philly 4 years ago and it has been an ongoing battle! I am incredibly particular with my hair, which I believe most women are. However, I ventured to Richard Nicholas Friday and received the most amazing color! I can't help looking at my hair with a feeling of satisfaction. FINALLY I have someone I can trust to do my color for my wedding!!! Thank you Rebecca, you were so sweet and listened to what I really wanted! I promise to send all of my friends in.
Best Haircut I've had in YEARS! – I moved to Philadelphia from NYC 8months ago. Since moving I have had several mediocre haircuts and 1 bad one, I finally decided to go back to NY to get my hair done by my amazing stylist that I've been going to for years. Then, by some twist of fate I meet a woman in our offices, her hair is beautiful, really sharp, creative, but still professional. I ask her and she sends me to Liz at Richard Nicholas, now, I am a little skeptical after all the terrible cut's I've had, plus I have curly hair, this woman had straight. Maybe this Liz didn't do curly hair? Did i really want to risk another bad experience? Could my hair handle it? I already had the appointment at my old salon in NY. But I couldn't get over how great this woman's hair was.
So I did it. I made the appointment with Liz ( I still kept the one in NY just in case, don't judge me!)
I don't even have the words to describe how great i feel, this was by far the best cut/style i have ever gotten. Especially with my curls, it's perfect!
Liz was great, she made me feel right at home, and listened to everything i told her about what I was looking for, how much time i wanted to put into styling, we even booked some color in 2 weeks to really show off the cut. I can't wait! After the hr I spent with Liz, I left feeling like i not only found a really great stylist that "gets it", but also like I made a friend, how great is that? She was fantastic and I look forward to my next appointment with her. Plus, on my way home I had 3 different women and 1 man at the coffee shop tell me they liked my hair. That has never happened to me in my 30 years, I already loved the cut, now I felt even better!
Oh, and P.S. I canceled the appointment in my NY salon, I don't think I'll be going back there again.
I know how difficult change can be, especially with your hair.
It's great to hear someone decribe such a great experience at Richard Nicholas with one of the best cut @ colorist in Center City Philadelphia. We love our LIZ..............
Maria made my day – As goofy as this may sound, it is so hard to get a decent men's haircut here in the city. I have been to numerous salons here in town, my hair looks great for the first couple of days and then.. A good friend recommended Maria Finizio and I cannot tell you how great this haircut is. It has been over 5 weeks and I wash, towel dry and go. My hair still looks great.
