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?
My New Favorite Salon. I am completely shocked by LUTER's Review. I have had the same exact bad haircut experience at a DIFFERENT salon and can't even imagine having that kind of bad experience at A Cut Above...I just moved here from the NYC area and went to A Cut Above on recommendations from my friends in the area who all go there. My stylist was great! Not only did he talk to me about face shape and suggestions, but he was really understanding about making gradual changes and my fear from bad haircuts of the past. It was really nice to be listened to and come out with a great haircut on top of it. I will definitely be making A Cut Above my new salon of choice!
THE BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD!!!.
I am new to the area and have been looking to find a salon that I TRUST!!! For the Last 30 years there has only been one person, my aunt, who has touched my hair. After I moved away from my family, I was scared to go to a different person and get my hair done. I went into numerous salons from Philadelpia up the mainline and walked out because something just did not feel right! But on this day, something was different...
As I walked to the door I was very nervous, pesimistically thinking "Here we go again, I will probally be out of here in 5 minutes." BUT the instant I walked into A Cut Above I felt a warm welcoming from the staff that started to put my nerves at ease. I was a few minutes early for my appointment so I sat down and waited for my turn. The owner, who was going to cut my hair, stop what he was doing, came over to me, greeted me, offered me beverages and snacks and gave me a quick synopise of how the salon operates.
My nerves again, started to calm even more. Now I was feeling like royalty. This man, did not have to do that for me! I was SO NICE!!!
When it was time for my appointment, Skip sat me down, went over my face shape, styles that would fit, not fit etc.. I asked him to take off 2 inches and he LITERALLY MEASURED TWO INCHES JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED!!!!
I WAS SO BLOWN AWAY BY ALL THIS PROFESSIONALISM!!!!
Once the cut was finished, I felt like a new person!
MY HAIR HAS NEVER LOOKED BETTER (oops..hope my aunt does not see that part)!!!
I have done nothing but brag to my friends and co-workers about this place!
Hands down, From the staff, the looks, the finished product, (hey I lived in Beverly Hills and New York City)
THIS IS THE BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD!!!
THANK YOU SKIP, AMY, SOPHIE AND PRISCILIA!!!
great service. my girlfriend and i though we should go get our hair cut. today, its raining, nothing to do. so I took her to this place near my school. it is place is nice and cozy, i knew my girlfriend would feel confortable. they accept walk ins, PERFECT! we walked to the salon and this nice young stylist was able to take care of us after finishing up a client. my girlfriend had her nails done while i was getting my hair trimmed. i went to get money while she was getting her cut. NO CREDIT CARDS ACCEPTED BUT IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT!
