If it’s “fried, dyed or laid to the side” Fishtown’s De’ Ultimate Hair Salon has it all. Just short of two months since their opening, the first glance of De’ Ultimate seems nothing more than just a regular hair salon, but taking a few steps closer it transforms into something special and typically unseen by most Black hair salons here in Philadelphia. While most Black salons here in Philadelphia are short on floor space, modern interior design and friendly staff, De’ Ultimate may just set a new standard. Decorated in eye popping decor, complete with bright orange walls and psychedelic mirrors, the salon has three sides: a waiting area, the actual hair salon and a “juice” hair bar. While at in the waiting area, you may have a seat in the plush leather booths (similar to those found in restaurants), watch the latest music videos from several flat screen televisions and help yourself to the various candies and treats. At the main “juice bar” you may help yourself to a selection of professional hair products from brands like TIGI BedHead and Redken. After, take a walk over to the salon and have your hair done in the latest styles including; locks, weaves, natural styles and curls. And for those special nights on the town, De’ Ultimate has a professional makeup artist on staff at all times. So ladies, before putting on your “freakum dress” and club hopping throughout Olde City be sure to visit De’ Ultimate Hair Bar, located at 5th and Girard Avenue for a "hair heaven" experience that's outta this world.
