    As an adopted Asian American female I never really had guidance on how to style and color Asian hair. I suddenly realized that maybe I was missing out on something for the last 27 years. So I went on the phila queens Facebook group and posted for Asian hair stylist recommendations for both cut and color and someone kindly recommended salon JKU to me and after looking at their Instagram and their stylists personal Instagram's I decided that this was the best salon for me given a lot of the stylist are of Asian descent. I got a full head balayage done by Memmi (@coloristmemmi) and haircut done by Chris Sotos. I cannot express enough how pleased I am with the results. PLEASE note this does not mean the salon is specialized in Asian hair only. I was the only Asian client in the salon yesterday. You definitely don’t HAVE to be Asian to come here lol I just really really wanted my hair done by someone of Asian descent since I’ve never tried that before. Anyway, Memmi did such a good job and was so pleasant to talk to while she was doing my hair she really is an interesting person with such a cool backstory. Same goes for Chris, who I had many things in common with. I cannot wait to return to the salon for my next cut and or color. PLEASE take the time to see the huge transformation my hair underwent in the photos attached to this review. And also please check out their Instagram @salonjku because you will instantly want to go there too, like me. And wow I'm glad I did. they do outstanding work here thank you so much team for making my hair look amazing for the first time in my life.

    This was my first visit, I was so fortunate to have Amelia as my stylist, she is a genius! After getting one of the worst haircuts in my life at another salon, she listened to what I wanted and was not only able to fix the previous cut, she made my hair look fabulous. I also loved the salon's atmosphere, clean, bright and welcoming with a very cool, unpretentious vibe, I loved every aspect of my visit and can't wait to go back.

    The best hair color service I’ve ever received in my entire life! As my experiences, I have really thick black hair which all the hairstylists I’ve had before really struggled with to get it dyed or bleached and unfortunately the results never came out as I wanted it to be. I’ve never been satisfied with any of my hair coloring done before until I met Seiko. Her skill is beyond awesome and I get amazed so much every single time she does my hair. I usually show her some pictures of hair color samples that I want on my hair beforehand and boom, I’ll see myself in a mirror with that exact color I was talking about! I still don’t understand how she does that with my hair but this is my first time experiencing the hair salon happiness that people are talking about! Their excellent work is also very efficient too! I had to move to another state but I still visit salon JKU whenever I have a chance to go back to Philadelphia for their beautiful work. I highly recommend this great place salon JKU!

    Great location as well as a top notch, professional, yet friendly staff. I thought the owner was a jerk at first meeting him. Pretty sure he didn't like me either. But don't let that stop you bc he is one of the best Hair Stylists I've ever been to. And, after a couple of meetings, it turns out he's a pretty cool guy. Would definitely recommend a visit.
