Back in February, I visited Kirsh’s other new property in Manayunk but this was my first time at the Bellevue location. Located on the lower level of the Hyatt at the Bellevue (near the food court), the brightly lit, full service salon and spa offers a bevy of services ranging from hair, to make-up, to spa treatments.

Artur Kirsh Salon Open in Manayunk

When it was time for our wedding in October 2015, there was only one person my wife and I turned to to make sure our hair looked perfect for our big day: Artur Kirsh. At the time, Kirsh was the owner of the Studio CL in Rittenhouse Square. Last month, the doors to the Studio CL closed for good and on January 26th, Artur Kirsh Salon opened in Manayunk.

Phashion Phest 2013 with The Studio CL

Phashion Phest 2013 marked the 20th anniversary of the event in Philadelphia. The runway fashion show, which featured several hair salons, make up artists, and fashion designers, was held at The Shops at Liberty Place on Wednesday, September 25th. For the 20th anniversary, each model (or group of models) was assigned a year from the past two decades that they were supposed to personify.

DSC_5255 copy DSC_5273 copy

Instead of just showing up for the event itself, which kicked off with cocktails and music at 7pm, ahead of the 830pm show, we decided to tag along for a full day with The Studio CL who had four models walking in the show.

DSC_5356 copy DSC_5364 copy

We arrived at The Studio CL at 230pm to see the models hair and make-up come to life from the get-go. Several of their stylists were not only doing hair and make-up, but two of them, Alexandra O’Connor and Seiko Kubota, were walking in the show as models.

DSC_5311 copy DSC_5308 copy

Over the next few hours, we watched as several innovative hair styles came to life. There were four styles in total and in addition, O’Conner was wearing a dress made out of hair extensions.

DSC_5403 copy DSC_5274 copy

The Studio CL owner, Artur Kirsh, said that it took a total team effort to get everything to come together just right in time for the show. In addition to O’Connor and Kubota, other staff members that participated were Debbie Williams, Lauren Garrett, Christi Zampino, Sydney Hillam, Johnny Wojanowicz, Ann Schroth, Rita Moscariello, Sharon McGarvey, and Danielle Ferretti.

Around 5pm we made the walk from the Studio CL on 19th street, to the Shops at Liberty Place. It was hard for passers by to not notice the models, especially O’Connor in her hair dress. One woman turned to her friend and emphatically declared, “She’s wearing a weave”!

DSC_5389 copy DSC_5431 copy

Once on site at the event, we got a behind the scenes look at the show, from the final touch-ups done to the models’ hair and make-up, to the walk through that was done by all of the models taking part in the show (from a wide range of salons, boutiques, and fashion designers.

DSC_5481 copy DSC_5484 copy

At 7pm, the doors opened to the cocktail hour where guests sipped on wine and Pinnacle vodka drinks while a DJ played. Just before 8pm, the main hall was opened up and patrons shuffled in to secure seats around the circular center stage.

DSC_5513 copy DSC_5516 copy DSC_5567 copy

The show began at 830pm and took about 45 minutes to complete. It was a very interesting day for us to experience all that went into the event for one business, let alone the vast number of other participants who took part in Phashion Phest 2013.

The Studio CL: Hair Today, Go Tomorrow

DSC_8065 copy_fhdr

We recently spent the afternoon at one of our favorite businesses in Philadelphia, The Studio CL in Rittenhouse Square. The Studio is closed on Mondays which afforded several members of the staff the time to showcase their skills for a photo shoot.


Five stylists and make-up artist Victoria Roggio took part in the shoot. Owner Artur Kirsh was also on hand to oversee the entire endeavor. Each stylist had her own model and once the hair and make up was finished, they moved over into the upper part of The Studio CL to have their photos taken.

Up first was Stylist Melissa Anspach with this playful do:

Studio CL Dry Cutting Class with Artur Kirsh

DSC_9922_h copy

On Monday, January 8th 2013, The Studio CL in Rittenhouse Square (128 South 19th Street Phila, PA 19103) held a complementary workshop for stylists, salon owners, and anyone else associated with the hair business.

DSC_9946_h copy DSC_9959_h copy

The class was taught by owner Artur Kirsh and focused on the technique of dry-cutting.

DSC_9916_h copy DSC_0046_h copy

While many salons and stylists wash hair, cut, and then blow-dry, The Studio CL sculpts the hair while it is dry, allowing their stylists to create a unique shape and texture for each individual. In addition, the dry-cut technique allows the hair to retain its shape as it grows out between cuts.

DSC_0039_h copy DSC_0005_h copy

Kirsh kept the mood light, cracking subtle jokes while he demonstrated his methods for dry-cutting. He finished up by adding one of his favorite hair-care products (Shiny) from his own line, “ASK“. A portion of the proceeds from the ASK products are donated to support Diabetes research. He also offers products under the name “ARTUR

DSC_0003_h copy DSC_0037_h copy

This was one of a series of classes taught by stylists at The Studio CL on the first Monday of each month. The classes take place from 3-5pm and allow those in the business to learn new tricks of the trade in a relaxed setting while enjoying a nice glass of wine.

DSC_0010_h copy DSC_9989_h copy

The next class in the series will focus on custom coloring and will take place on Monday, February 4th.

For more information on the classes you can contact The Studio CL at (215) 496-0604.
