Rinse is located on a cozy residential street situated only 4 blocks from Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square. Our concept is based on creating an environment that allows our clients to let go of life’s everyday stresses.
We accomplish this by fostering the familiar, warm and inviting feelings of home. We strive to do away with the “factory” feeling that has become so common in this industry. By not using assistants, our clients are in the care of their chosen stylist from start to finish.
Joey Rose opened Rinse in 2006 with a small creative team of stylists. Shortly after, Rinse was named “Best New Salon” by Philadelphia Magazine within the first year of being open. In August of 2010, Elle Magazine named Rinse one of the top 100 salons in the U.S. In October of 2013 Allure Magazine named Joey and Rinse in their “Best of the Best” issue.
Joey has been in the beauty industry for over 18 years. He is a licensed cosmetology teacher and enjoys inspiring others to be a part of this creative field. In addition to his work within the salon, he has also been featured on TLC’s A Makeover Story and freelanced as a hair and makeup artist for Urban Outfitters and Free People.
“My goal is to exceed my client's expectations every time they walk through our door. It’s the best feeling seeing a smile on someone’s face after they’ve spent time with us.”
