1st Class all around. I have been to St. Louis Academy several times and have always found it to be great experience. The staff has been very helpful and done a great job with my hair. The prices are very reasonable, and the environment is very welcoming. I have used several schools for my hair since the economy took a turn for the worse, and the Paul Mitchell school has been the best I've been to and affordable. I have had 2 stylists in my time there. The beginning students were a little slow, but did a good job. My second stylist was in their advanced program. They cost a little more, but it is well worth it. I have never had so many compliments on my hair in my life. I've never done much with color for my hair, but the stylist, Ashley convinced me to try a shade of red. I agreed and it turned out amazingly. I highly recommend the school. I couldn't even tell Ashley was a student.
Disappointed - Will not return. I wanted a salon close to my home and Philip-Johnson was a block away. I went and had my hair highlighted twice and also cut twice. I was happy with the cut and color, not wowed (especially after receiving the bill). I was not happy that my stylist was taking other clients while I was waiting for my color to finish. That's annoying especially when you are paying a lot of money for a professional, there's signs posted that you will be charged if you do not cancel within 24hrs (I would understand if I was the only client booked for that time slot), and the stylist is not paying attention to the color that is developing. The third time I went to this salon the same stylist did my hair as previous times and just like always he took other clients. He was not checking my color. I could tell there was something not looking right but I decided to give it the benefit of doubt. I walked home and looked through all my hair in the mirror and all the low light color had gone into the highlight portions. Completely obvious once you looked closely at my hair. I called and went back to the same stylist and he still messed it up, there was still tons of chunks of hair that were multi-colored. I was very disappointed. I will not return to this salon. My favorite new secret is the Paul Mitchell School down on Maryland. So cheap and the students are always trying please and they have instructors to watch their work and I have walked out each visit happy with the color, cut and price!
Great Haircut, Affordable.
I've been going to Philip Johnson for about a year now.
I love that I can make an appointment the day before (or walk in!).
It's definitely affordable (a men's shampoo/haircut is around $25-30).
I'd describe it as getting a massage for your hair.
Lovely cut, friendly staff, *and* cheap..
Lauren cut my hair. She helped me decide what would work with my hair and gave me an amazing cut. It was only $25 for the cut.
The rest of the staff were great at helping me find things.
Great Service & beautiful cut!. I walked into this salon on a Saturday and was able to get in for a haircut. The stylist was very nice and professional. The atmosphere is great. The salon is clean and offers man brands of hair products, including Aveda. The stylist noticed my hair was a bit dry and left a conditioner in my hair for a few exta minutes. She did a great job of cutting my hair to my specifications and offered expert advice on styling for everyday. I paid $56 for shampoo, haircut, and styling. A bit more than I would have liked to in St. Louis but I am completely satisfied!
