Ah’Seek Hair Salon is a full service beauty salon with a very relaxed atmosphere. The owner and stylist, Keesha Johnson, gives each of her clients with individualized service, providing them with the best treatments and styles for their hair type, texture and state of health. “My goal is for each client to walk out with a beautiful style and over time, healthier hair”.

 

While the salon exclusively offers hair services, (Ah’Seek does not provide skincare or nail care services), it has the feel of an upscale spa. The salon is completely “child free”, so that clients can relax and enjoy their “adult time”. Ah’Seek also provides clients with refreshments, and cable television. “I also try to provide entertainment for my clients, with my wit”, jokes Johnson.

 

Most of Keesha’s clients have been coming to her for five years or more, which she attributes to consistency, and giving clients what they need, instead of what they want. “Clients come to a hair stylist for their expertise. I do what’s best for their hair.”

Sheila Turner, who Johnson has been styling for about a year, says that she found Ah’Seek just by walking in. “I was really satisfied with the service that day. Today, my hair is healthy. It wasn’t when I first came in.”

 

Keesha says she has always loved styling hair. As a kid, her mother did hair and she would style her friends and neighbors. When she received her cosmetology license in 1995 she began working in salons as well as servicing clients in their homes (such as families of foster children or people with disabilities). In 2007, she was finally able to open her own salon. “For a while I had felt that I needed my own space, because I’ve always liked to provide my clients with a certain level of service. Working in someone else’s salon I wasn’t able to create the type of environment I like. The service my clients receive is a direct reflection of me”.

 

Ah’Seek Hair Salon is located at 3975 Ford Road, Philadelphia PA 19131, and is open Wednesday thru Sunday. The hours of operation are Wednesday & Thursday 10 AM-6 PM, Friday 9 AM-6 PM, Saturday 7 AM-2 PM, and Sunday 10 AM-2 PM. Since Johnson is the only stylist at the salon (although she does have an assistant), appointments are highly recommended.

 

Additionally, in June, Ah’Seek will begin offering apprenticeship classes for those studying to become licensed cosmetologists. Course topics will include cutting, coloring, weave installation, and more. Prices range from $35-$50 per class and will be hands on.

 

For more information about Ah’Seek’s services or to schedule an appointment pleases call 215-477-3843.
