ABOUT AMS SALON

AMS Luxury Salon is Center City Philadelphia’s premier for superior cuts, color and blow drys. AMS Salon is comprised of the area’s top stylists and colorists. Just refer to the multitude of publications who recognized AMS as a trendsetting industry leader, including Lucky, Allure, and Philadelphia magazine—who has given AMS multiple “Best of Philly®” awards. Owner Alex Molchadskiy has invaluable experience in the styling industry. He began his training in New York and quickly moved to styling celebrities—subsequently earning the nickname “The Dry Cutting Wizard.” AMS is also the home of Best of Philly® colorist Megan Reilly.

With 10 years of experience, she is especially experienced in the French coloring technique Balayage and can expertly enhance natural colors to create dimensions. AMS recently relocated to a new home not far from Rittenhouse Square. The new AMS better reflects the style, elegance and luxury that AMS epitomizes with a myriad of state-of-the-art styling stations, free WiFi, and a full coffee bar. AMS offers an inviting setting to enjoy a glass of wine on the backyard patio before having our über-talented staff take your look to its maximum potential.

From the acclaimed Peter Coppola Salon in New York City, it didn't take Alex Molchadskiy long to figure out how to become one of the most talked about stylists in America. Born in the Ukraine, he arrived in the US in 1993, identified Madison Avenue as the place to be, and studied under Kevin Mancuso, one of New York's top celebrity stylists. As one of only a few stylists in Philadelphia to offer dry cutting, his distinctive visual approach has quickly made him the talk of the town. Alex worked behind the scenes at the 2006 Academy Awards and has done the dos of some of Hollywood's most high profile starlet's including, Lisa Kudrow and Juliana Margulies. For Alex, haircuts are about keeping things natural and he takes texture and hair type into consideration to create a look that accentuates the features and shape of your face.

Megan has trained with some of the most talented colorists in New York City at the renowned AKS Salon on Madison Avenue before returning home to work at Studio C.L. on Rittenhouse Square. Now she's coloring the hair of some of Philadelphia's most high profile women at AMS.

She provides clients with a new, super gorgeous hair coloring technique called Balayage, a French technique of hair painting that creates a softer, more natural color. It's a technique that brightens complexion and adds depth, movement and shine. One of only a few colorists in Philadelphia trained in Balayage highlighting, Megan also specializes in color corrections and traditional foil highlights. Her notable clientele list includes TV personality Kathy Orr, among others.

Tasha Jetter recently joined the AMS team after several years in New York city - first at HIro Haraguchi Hair Salon and later with John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman where Jetter spent a total of six years. These days the Philadelphia native returns home to study coler under AMS expert and such sought after colorist Megan Reilly. Jetter is also an extension specialist and guru of texture and transformation. Before heading to New York, Jetter attended the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts, and later studied fashion and illustration. It was while studying fashion that Jetter discovered her love of the industry.

A Philadelphia native, colorist Gail Polsky desired a change of scenery and headed out for sunny California. In 2004, Gail quickly began her training in Los Angeles at the acclaimed Paul Mitchell school.  She continued to pursue her career in hair with Paul Mitchell and other salons throughout locations in LA including Beverly Hills.  Over the course of 9 years, Gail executed her perfectly sun-kissed highlight look for many local and international celebrities. In 2011, Gail returned home to transform Philly's finest tresses. A year after her return to the east coast, she joined the staff of AMS Luxury Salon to execute her natural, flawless highlighting abilities. Gail's true talent lies in her ability to replicate a client's precise desire and is always inspired by a challenging opportunity.
