Gary Charles and Associates Salon was opened in 1972 in Philadelphia, PA by Gary and Maureen Muhlberger and has been on the cutting edge of the beauty industry ever since.



Just had my hair cut by ALYSSA RIVERA - amazing! She asked questions, really understood what I wanted and made sure to accommodate all the nuances of my hairline, thickness of my hair, etc. Superb master!
I loved my last (and first) visit for an updo! Courtney was great! I am actually going to call soon for a haircut appointment! I was referred by a friend and the salon is beautiful. I had nothing but professional service and everyone was so nice.
I had my hair worked on by Kristina. I needed a color correction because of a boo boo made at another salon... and ended up with this garish manic panic red hair.

I just wanted to say that Kristina is phenominal and if I could nominate her for a Nobel prize in hair, professionalism and COMPASSION, I totally would. Sorry to sound hokey. I will definitely be back to see her to Gary Charles.

I was in on Saturday. Monica colored my hair and Jordan cut it. Monica was super nice and very attentive. Everyone at work today keeps saying how much they love the color! As for the hair cut, this is the third or fourth time Jordan cut my hair. I absolutley love my hair every time he cuts it. I was skeptical when I decided to go short, but Jordan reassured me it would look good. He was right - it's the best hair cut I've ever had. I'm the working mother of a two year old and needed something that would look polished but didn't require a lot of time. I can blow my hair out in under 10 minutes and it looks perfect every time. Gary Jr. has also cut my hair in the past and he is fantastic. Thanks to a rock star staff at Gary Charles, I no longer have to worry about my hair!
A couple weeks ago I called to make an appointment - last minute -- and Cathy whom gave me perms some 25 years ago - cut my hair. Well I haven't worn my hair down in at least 18 years - I was always just tying it up or had it chopped - but that all changed since Cathy did my hair! I have been wearing my hair down every day and EVERY one has complimented me. I feel awesome. Thank you Cathy and thank you GC for booking me with her!
Just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how happy I am with the results of your work for my wedding day. All 8 of my bridesmaids and both my mother and mother in law looked absolutely beautiful and breathtaking with the help and patience of your skilled employees. I have been going to your salon now for 13 years and no matter how far away I live, I will travel to your salon. Special thanks to Robbie and Jen for doing a fabulous job on my hair and makeup for my wedding day. Thanks again. I am forever grateful.
Gary did an amazing job on my hair!!! I couldn't be happier. He is a wonderful stylist and a very nice man. I will be returning to Gary for all of my hair needs.

Thank you so much!! Have a great day!

I remember two years ago getting up early to come and get my hair done for my sister's wedding. I felt like a princess! My hair was beautiful and so were my mom's, my sister's, the flower girls', and the brides maids' hair! I felt like I got V.I.P treatment! I still come back here to get my hair styled and look forward to it! My hair always comes out looking beautiful and I really don't trust my hair to anyone else! I'd like to thank all the staff at GC&A and I hope I've helped future brides decide on making their big day start out with a trip to GC&A! You won't be disappointed!
I was very pleased with my visit to the salon. I had been struggling with a style that was not working for me but I could not put my finger on the problem. Cathy P. styled my hair perfectly. I will definitely be back to the salon.
