Just wanted to drop the 411~ Robyn is now at Toppers Spa and Salon in Rittenhouse. The address is 117 S. 19th Street (which is between Sansom and Chestnut) and the number is 215-496-9966 If you mention you're a first time client there's a 20% off discount she honors too!
I thought I had already left a review for Robyn! I had my hair cut by her last spring, and was very happy with it. Robyn knew what I wanted in my haircut and did exactly that. She'll listen to what you want--no pushing, which I think is very important. She has beautiful red curly hair herself, and proudly wears it. Note, she's not a Deva or Ouidad cutter, so don't expect those techniques. But I've had a Deva cut previously, and I can definetly say that I am much more pleased with Robyn's cut. She's also a very pleasent, sweet person; I enjoyed talking to her. I've also heard she's very good with formal hair styling. I will be making another appointment with her for the fall--my search for a good curly hair stylist is over.
I meant to leave this review in May, but of course I forgot !! I've been to soooo many sylists in Center City over the years, but Robyn is the best that I've found so far. She's a Curly Head herself, and knows just what to do. Her cuts also grow out really well, which is important since I only get a cut twice or three times a year. I'll definately be back there in the Fall !!
I love Robyn because she doesnt view curly hair as an unfortunate deformity or problem. I wore my hair really short until recently and Robyn got me through all the stages of growing it in to chin length now with a god haircut every time. she is also fun and interesting to talk to! She has beautiful long red curly hair and therefore personally knows the issues for people with curly hair.
