Em-belle-ish is the best salon around. The stylists are second to none with customer service that is outstanding. They are extremely knowledgable and very friendly. It's brings a chic city salon feel. I know several people who drive out of the city just to come here. By far the best.

Paula's service at A Touch of Class can not be beat! She gives a great haircut, is very knowledgable and reasonable. Laurie

24 salons in Reading is a lot but the best is still Laschi's. They are always providing the best service and styles.

Chiefs in a barbor shop on Haven Street. It's a father/son team (right?) and they do a great job on my husband's and son's (2 yr old) hair. They're also a great place to go for town news.

We're spotlighting hair salons this week and will feature barber shops soon. Thanks for the info, Brian and Amanda.

Yes, Sue does massage now, she's amazing!
STEPHEN March 08, 2012 at 04:47 PM
Lumina by far supercedes all salons in Reading. Even though it's a business, the feeling I get there is that it's not about them yet about what they can do for their community. We need more of this type of business in our communities. By the way, Sue is absolutely phenomenal!!!! You want the best massage ever, go see her!!!

The Salon on Haven is the best salon around!! The girls are all soo nice and make you feel so pampered. I always feel like they listen to what I want instead of doing what they want! It's spacious and clean and I always leave so happy!

Just visited Em-bell-ish as a treat for my 35th birthday and I had a great experience. Stephanie took great care of me and best of all made me look and feel beautiful. I have been a customer since 2009 and will not change them for any other place. They understand my hair and style since I started going there. The place is clean, treandy and fun to visit. My whole family, including 2 boys, go there now. Im so lucky to have Stephanie and Em-bell-ish in my life.

If you haven't visited The Salon on Haven you are missing out on, superior guest service, top notch class, and incredibly skilled stylists etc. All the girls really understand what they're doing and have fun while doing so! Tired of boring stylists who make you feel awkward while sitting there?! Well then The Salon on Haven is for you! Go check it out! PS: Jacqueline Mello is not only adorable but has cut my hair better than anyone else! Check em out! -Tobey

Love Laschi's and will never go anywhere else!!! Julie is amazing! Staff is great and professional! The salon is clean and makes a girl feel pampered!
Linda March 09, 2012 at 02:05 AM
I Have been going to laschi's for a few years now I see Sonia every month or so she colors and cuts my hair and does treatments every now and again and I would not go anywhere else she does a fantastic job my hair has never looked or felt any better. Sonia also cuts my childrens hair she is so great with them and their hair always comes out perfect. The salon is beautiful and always looks good the entire staff is wonderful.
Marie March 09, 2012 at 02:57 AM
Stephanie at Em-belle-ish salon is by far the best hairstylist I've ever had. She not only takes time to listen to exactly what I want but offers her own spin and suggestions. She is not afraid to try new things and is a perfectionist at her art. My only complaint is that she's always so booked! Marie
Christina March 09, 2012 at 04:27 AM
There is only one salon that is topnotch: Em-Belle-ish. The ladies at Em-Belle-ish are amazing. This is the salon to go to, hands down!! The stylists are brilliant, knowledgable, easy to work with, professional, and FRIENDLY. The space is in a great location, chic, and has a great vibe to it. You can't necessarily say that about some of the others on this list, and I speak from experience.
Rachel Harrison March 09, 2012 at 05:13 AM
Had an amazing experience at Embellish. I was referred to Jessie for a makeup lesson and loved her so much I had her do my color and cut. I have never felt better about myself!! Thanks Jessie- your the best!!
Michelle Spurr March 09, 2012 at 06:38 AM
If you want an amazingly professional it and service, then head to Laschi's and ask for Franchesca. You will be so happy that you took my advice! She is young, innovated and clearly in the field meant for her!!! We have 3 generations going to her from 12 yrs to 71 yrs and she gives each of us an amazingc look that is cute and new, yet easy and age appropriate!!
JM March 09, 2012 at 11:14 AM
Love embellish. I feel beautiful every time I leave! The atmosphere is warm and inviting. JM
Adrienne P March 09, 2012 at 12:22 PM
The Salon on Haven is the most inviting and friendly salons that I have been too. I have gone to many high end salons that felt "catty" but the owner Jackie creates an atmosphere of warmth and professionalism. Plus they have the best foil jobs in the city for this blond! Adrienne P
Diane Hennessy March 09, 2012 at 01:49 PM
So glad I was introduced to Tara...she fixed me! Great color & easy to do cut. Staff is friendly, professional & the location is great! DH*
Michelle March 09, 2012 at 01:58 PM
My entire family goes to Em-belle-ish and we love it!
Melissa Erickson March 09, 2012 at 02:13 PM
