“I was in town on business and needed a quick cut. Jen (my stylist) and the whole Crimson team were very welcoming and friendly. I received the absolutely best haircut I have ever had in my life. Truly a top notch establishment and the rustic decor really added to my experience. I HIGHLY recommend you stop in and have a delightful experience yourself. I will definitely go out of my way to return, too bad they were not closer to my home. Keep up the great work and will see you all again soon.”
“Jen did an amazing job on coloring my hair! She was able to get it exactly how I wanted and had such amazing advice on keeping my hair healthy. Everyone at the hair studio was so nice. Definitely my new go to hair salon!”
“For the first time ever I walked out of a salon loving my cut. Thank you Jen! You are the curl pro I’ve been looking for.”
“The salon is amazing! Jen the owner, does my color/highlights. She is professional, but so down to earth. From the minute you walk through the door you are impressed by the unique design of Crimson Hair Studio. A lot of thought went into creating the unique, yet charming space. It’s upscale but not uptight or uncomfortable, and the only salon I have ever felt like everyone is happy to work there, smiling, and their true desire is to make you look amazing. I would trust anyone in the salon to do my hair; I haven’t seen one person leave without a big smile and amazing hair!”
By far one of the best stylists in the city… Crimson for the best treatments/cuts! Everyone is Awesome!
“I have been going to Crimson Hair Salon for over 2 years and Danielle has brought my hair back to life! When I first went to Danielle, my hair was damaged and a brassy blonde color…she was so honest and knowledgeable on what I should do that I immediately started trusting her… I have gone through many beautiful shades of double process blonde with Danielle and today I trusted her to make me a brunette! There has not been one time that I haven’t been extremely happy after my hair appointment at Crimson. 🙂”
“This salon is the mecca if you have curly hair and Danielle is your girl! I had been going to her for short hair cuts for years, grew my hair out, and came back years later to cut it all back off. Danielle is 100% the only person I would let chop my hair off again. She is super funny and sweet and seriously knows how to style and cut curls. I cannot recommend her enough!!! It’s funny to think that after a 6 year hiatus this salon is still the best!”
“By far one of the best stylists in the city. Crimson Hair Studio for the best treatments/cuts! Everyone is Awesome!”
“Danielle has been making me beautiful for many decades! Love her and love you all!”
“Danielle listens to me and creates realistic but stunning hair designs that I can replicate on my own. I feel welcome and well taken care of by everyone at Crimson Hair Studio.”
“I seriously had such a good experience. Danielle was funny and cool, I felt comfortable and I LOVE my haircut. I have already scheduled my next appointment:)”

Buddy Cuts Crimson Owner Jen’s Hair
“Best salon in Philly. I have straight hair and have been searching for a salon that does modern precision cuts. Someone recommended Buddy and I decided to try it. He is fantastic and gave me the best cut I’ve had in a long time. The salon has great energy and I’d probably use any of the stylists based upon the way they were so focused on their clients. The price (women’s haircut only) was very reasonable compared to the quality of the cut. I’ll definitely be back, perhaps may even color my hair for the first time!”
“Buddy is a consummate professional and skilled artist in his craft. Also, really like the online booking capability.”
“I love Buddy. My color is perfect and has never looked better. He cuts are fabulous too. The staff at the salon is very friendly and I feel quite comfortable there.”
“I love you guys and Buddy always makes me feel beautiful. Thank you!”
“I have to say, I finally found my “go to” hair salon. I was searching for a new place because I wasn’t happy at the other salon I was going to, and that’s when I found Crimson. I read all of the reviews and booked an appointment with Laura – I couldn’t be happier! My husband loves my new haircut, but more importantly, *I* love it! I love the vibe of Crimson; from the exposed brick to the red tool boxes. All of the people I met during my appointment were very nice, and accommodating. That’s definitely a breath of fresh air in Center City, especially from the other salons I’ve been to. I recommend anyone who hasn’t found their “go to” salon yet, to try Crimson. I’ll definitely be back again and again!”
“Laura is awesome. She is very patient, is a great communicator, and really aims to please. She is the best!!!”
“Laura knows what she’s doing, especially with men’s cuts. Wouldn’t let anyone else touch these curly locks.”
“I love coming to Crimson Hair Studio. Everyone who works there is so nice and I feel so relaxed when I’m there. Laura is there best colorist and I always leave happy. My color this time is even better than ever! She’s amazing!”
“Excellent customer service and very friendly and welcoming staff! Laura is awesome and has great attention to detail. She listened to my ideas of what I wanted, gave great suggestions, and worked on my color until it ended up being the shade that I had in mind. Not once did I feel that she was rushing. I’ve never felt as happy walking out of a hair salon as I did after my appointment at Crimson Hair Studio. :)”

“When we moved to the Philadelphia area four years ago, we spent some time looking for a salon to call home with a fantastic stylist with whom we could develop a long-term relationship. It took us a little while, but we stumbled upon Francesca at Crimson. My husband and I have now been seeing Francesca every four weeks for more than three years. We drive in to the city from Drexel Hill, so it is a little bit of a commitment, but one that pays off for us! We love Francesca: she’s warm, friendly, and fun to talk to. More importantly, she gives a consistently great haircut! I read another review from a guy who said she gives the best men’s cut in the city; I might agree with that! She’s from the Philadelphia area, and we enjoy sharing our experiences with restaurants and other local attractions.
I should give a shout-out to Lisa, the receptionist, too. She’s always helpful and friendly!
As far as the salon goes, it’s located in Rittenhouse Square which is nice for us because we get cuts on Saturday mornings and visit the farmer’s market on the square and have lots of great options for breakfast. Parking is easy at that time of day, too. We can usually park right outside the salon. We also like the Kevin Murphy products they carry.
So, if you are looking for a new stylist, check out Francesca and tell her we sent you!”
“Francesca does a great job every time. I’ve been getting my haircut exclusively at Crimson Hair Studio for four years now because she always makes me look good and puts so much thought/work into it. I also greatly appreciate the polite customer service and enjoyable atmosphere.”
“Francesca is amazing. I don’t know if she has a crazy good memory or y’all document bits of info on clients but I appreciate having a hair stylist who I might not see in months remember our last conversation.”
“I’ve been coming to Crimson Hair Studio for the past four years to have Francesca cut my hair. I’ve recommended her to all of my friends because I genuinely believe that she’s one of the most talented men’s hair stylists out there. I’m consistently complimented on my haircuts, and my friends who have switched over to Crimson all experience the same thing.
The salon is spacious but welcoming, bright, friendly and modern but slightly retro (think modern pin-up girl). The clientele seems to be a good mix of young and mature men and women. Two thumbs up and five-stars from me!”
“Love Becky! She always does a great job and has made growing out my bangs/hair much less of a crappy transition!”
“I’ve been coming to Becky at Crimson for three years and will never go anywhere else. She’s guided me through my most drastic hair cuts and boldest color choices. Hands down, the best place for talking through what you want to do and what’s achievable for your hair/lifestyle. I also love that I can bring my mom here and she feels right at home too.”
“Becky is my go-to stylist and I was ecstatic when she was willing to trek to New Hope to do hair and makeup for my four bridesmaids and me. We had a variety of styles — some up-do, some down, airbrush, no-airbrush — and Becky nailed them all. Everyone looked so pretty and no one was overdone or “pageant” in the slightest. She was laid-back, funny and came prepared with music, refreshments and gum — we had the best time all getting ready together and she helped calm my jitters. What’s probably most impressive is when you look at our photos from the end of the reception, my hair and makeup look exactly the same — not one strand out of place. I am so grateful that Becky could be there for my wedding; she truly made me feel confident and beautiful — just how a bride wants to feel!”
“So I effin LOVE Crimson Hair Studio! I had a really awesome brown to blonde ombre done that I needed (unfortunately) to get rid of for practical reasons. So, I tried Crimson Hair Studio out. I’ve been seeing Becky ever since! She’s awesome.
“My hair philosophy is this: I have a vague idea of what I want to do. But how the eff should I know what looks best? You’re the professional! Becky works well with this philosophy. She always picks a ballpark of my idea but better matches my skin tone and style. She’s good at picking up what looks good on me and what’s on my radar in terms of my style. I pretty much always let her do whatever the hell she wants. And it turns out awesome. Every. Time.”
“Last time she put green extensions in my hair. It was legit. And a good solution to my desire to have all over purple hair despite needing to keep it normal for work purposes. Ugh. Normal sucks. But Becky helps me rock normal.”
“I go to Crimson salon for my haircuts throughout the year. I’ve been impressed with their level of service, talent and professionalism. It was a no-brainer to book them for my wedding on 10/19/19! Jeanne did my hair and it was perfection. I trusted her vision and she gave me the hair of my dreams! My bridesmaids and I went into the salon to get our hair done because we were in a nearby hotel. I love that Crimson offers that as an option along with on-site. Id recommend them for any wedding.”
“Have my haircut after a while. Jeannie absolutely knew what I want though its the first time she did it for me. Love my new hairstyle. Thanks!”
“Cute little salon near Rittenhouse with a fantastic and talented staff. Jeanne is the best! Thank youuuu!”
“I always go to Jeanne and she’s wonderful. I have very unique hair that isn’t always easy to manage. Every time I leave the salon she has be feeling amazing and gives me tips to manage my impossible hair. I always recommend her and the salon to everyone.”
“Jeanne was phenomenal! Her attention to detail and recommendations were well thought and welcomed.”
“Sarah did it up – she’s only the 3rd hairdresser I’ve ever let cut my hair, in my 24 years of existence but after reading the good reviews and getting an appointment within two days (thanks to Lisa helping me schedule an appt so quickly), it was worth the. It’s tricky to find, and you have to enter a passcode to get in, which is on the sign. It’s in the back on the second floor.
The studio is bright and way larger than I had imagined. Sarah was really great and friendly. She helped me get my hair to the desired length and did nice finishing touches (textured the ends and added layers). We spoke the whole time, and it turns out we are from the same place in New Jersey. I’ll definitely be back to see Sarah again!”
“I’m new to Philly and I’m really happy that I decided to go to Crimson… I absolutely love the job that Sarah did on my super thick, curly, and short 3b hair. I bleached and dyed it myself the night before and it came out horrendous… She corrected my mess and brought the life back to my hair using eco friendly yet very effective natural color and hair products. She took the time to listen to what I wanted, asked all the right questions, and knew exactly what to do. Not only that, but she is also down to earth and a pleasure to be around. The vibe of the salon in general is friendly, chill, clean and professional…”
“Thank you so much Sarah for my haircut. Hairstylists are a woman’s girlfriend, therapist, and adviser. You’ve helped me feel and look beautiful at a time when I really needed it. Thank you again so much I can’t wait to come back.”

“I have gone to a lot of salons over about 25 years but Lisa is one of the best, always pleasant and efficient. The talent at the salon is exceptional.”
“I’ve been a client of Lana’s for many years, and followed her here to Crimson. Everyone in the salon is friendly, helpful, and welcoming, plus the salon space itself is beautiful and at a great location, so the transition has been easy. I keep my hair routine pretty simple with regular highlights and trims, and Lana has always been down with that by keeping my highlights subtle & natural and only trimming what’s absolutely necessary. She’s an excellent listener, and does what I’ve requested the way I pictured it going in. Plus I just think she’s funny and a genuinely awesome person to spend a couple hours with every few months!”
“WOW…is all I can say! This is a very stylish salon with the most down the earth staff around! I have had numerous visits to the salon for all different treatments and every time never disappoints! From the front desk to the stylists!! TOP NOTCH! The last visit was with Sherry and she not only created shape to my hair, she also trimmed and shaped my clip in extensions. TRUE ARTIST! From the owner Jenn to the front the desk Lisa… to Sherry! My last visit was amazing!”
“Great salon! I get my haircut by Sherry and she is the BEST hairdresser I have ever had! I’ve been her client for many years and she always (every single time) gives me a fantastic cut and color with meticulous detail! Sherry is great- Highly recommend!”
“While visiting Philly for a day, I snuck in a haircut between seeing girlfriends and was sooo pleased. I had the chance of meeting Brooke, she did a fantastic job with my cut, paid attention to detail and was of course great conversation. Highly recommend her.”
“Got great highlights from Brooke. Great ambiance and staff was very helpful. Glad I found a new salon in Philly. Excited to go back again.”
“Being a visitor to the city and in desperate need of finding a salon to get my fine, thin hair highlighted, I was lucky enough to get a appointment at Crimson. My stylist, Brooke, sat me down, evaluated my hair and discussed best option for my needs. I walked out of Crimson absolutely loving the results. Brooke took the time and patience to achieve exactly what I was looking for. I Highly recommend this salon and if I’m ever back in Philly, I’ll be visiting Crimson!”
“Really happy with my experience at this salon! Today was my first visit and I will definitely be back. Received some complementary coffee and an awesome head and neck massage during my shampoo. Samantha cut my hair and she was really attentive to what I asked for; she gave me a layered bob that’s seamlessly blended.
The price is slightly on the higher side, but you definitely get what you pay for. The staff here is awesome and while it sounds cliche, I feel like a new person with my awesome ‘do. Can’t wait to come back!”
