Mirror & Mantel is a warm, sun-filled, boutique Hair Salon located in Center City Philadelphia opened in 2012 by Hairstylist Katie Cooke and her husband, Sam Tropio. Their mission was to create a studio space that was comfortable and inviting to visitors, committed to natural and local product lines, and most importantly one that provided their clientele with creative stylists that are experts in their craft.
All of the hairstylists at Mirror & Mantel are skilled as both stylists and colorists. The teams experience working as educators in the industry has helped create a collaborative, forward-thinking environment that is, most important to our goals, unpretentious. We are excited to work with our clients personally and without the use of assistants. You can be confident that you will get the very best result with every visit that you make!
We hope that when you visit us at Mirror & Mantel you will feel as welcome as you would at a friends home. We truly believe that feeling at ease in our salon will allow you to say and get what you really want.
