About Us

Salon Lanka opened its doors in 2007 with the goal of offering great salon & spa services at a reasonable price. Owner & Esthetician Alanna Ralph, was frustrated with the lack of unique options for hair & spa services in Philadelphia. Alanna decided to open Salon Lanka offering exactly what she thought every women wanted. A great haircut, Gorgeous hair Color, beautiful skin, & and well deserved spa pampering.

Lanka pays homage to the women and era of the 30’s-50’s with the classic beauty, and timeless style. We love the antiques and proudly display them throughout the salon. Retro tunes play on the radio, as we offer a modern spin on classic hairstyles. Finger waving, victory rolls. reverse rolls, pincurls, as well as modern styles for all hair tastes.

Salon Lanka is not just for women we cater to men as well. Offering more services then a traditional Barber Shop. Man-icures, Man-scaping, massage, and male skincare are all on the menu.

In 2010 Alanna opened Lanka Photography right next door, Specializing in Pinup & Boudoir photos, we also offer couples, engagement, maternity, glamour, zombie, & childrens photography too!

In 2011 Lanka Launched Lanka Apothecary, an all natural custom skincare line made in house. Each person and product is custom tailored for every single client. This is what makes Lanka stand, out!

2013 Finally Lanka launched a Makeup line Lanka Cosmetics, by Alanna Ralph. Whats makes this line amazing? We can custome create lipsticks while you wait, custom mix foundations, and eyeshadows. Our makeup line is meant to last for hours and hours so you wont need to reapply!

Lanka Salon & Photography has won various awards, and have been published for their talented works. Next up? Lanka Lingerie? 2nd Lanka Location?
