Artur Kirsh will close his namesake salon at The Bellevue in Center City in November 2021 but will continue to service his Center City clients at the Rittenhouse Hotel Salon and Spa as well as at The Salon Project at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd and Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City, and Boca Raton.
“It was time for me to get back to focusing on what I really enjoy and that is doing hair. While I have enjoyed success as a salon owner, my true passion is working with my clients and by closing The Bellevue location, I will have more time to focus on clients both in Philadelphia, the suburbs, New York City, and Florida,” he said. Kirsh said beginning in December he will be on-location at the Rittenhouse Hotel Salon and Spa every Friday and every other Saturday and will expand his hours on-site at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd.
Known for his unique vision and expert technique in the realm of cut and color, Kirsh has achieved the stature of one of the Nation’s premier professionals, earning a reputation as the preferred stylist among women of influence and taste including media personalities, celebrities, and fashion models. Kirsh specializes in coloring and a style called “dry cutting,”, and is well known in the fashion circle. He is the go-to stylist for models and local celebrities. Over the years, he has styled luminaries who range from local and national news reporters from all major networks to celebrities including New York Housewive Dorinda Medley, Betsy Johnson, Carolina Herrera, Celine Dion, Kathy Griffin, Nicole Miller, and Ken Downing. He has styled the supermodels of New York and Milan’s Fashion Weeks, the Chanel Trunk Show, Christian Louboutin Fashion Show at Neiman Marcus, the Carmen Marc Valvo Fashion Show, and the Derek Lam Fashion Show. He continues to earn “Best of Philly” and “Best of Style” Magazine awards each year.
Kirsh began his journey into the world of styling and cosmetology at the age of sixteen. He moved to New York in the mid-1990s, where he quickly made a name for himself as a promising young talent on the rise. After gaining experience at a Manhattan studio, Artur moved to Philadelphia. Kirsh opened The Studio CL in Philadelphia in 2003 and after 14 years in Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, The Studio CL closed its doors to re-imagine itself as Artur Kirsh Salon in Manayunk, Philadelphia. He opened his location at The Bellevue in 2017.
Kirsh began to split his time between Artur Kirsh Salon at the Bellevue in Philadelphia and celebrity stylist Joel Warren’s salons at Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and Boca Raton. In 2020 he opened The Salon Project at Saks with Warren. At The Salon Project, customers can have multiple treatments with the same stylist from cut to color to Keratin treatments to extensions, eliminating the need to have contact with multiple stylists during one visit, making it convenient for the guest.
