Dreams Do Come True My English is no that good but I still right a review for Guys & Dolls Hair Salon. I was eating at the dinner next store and saw a Brazilian Flag in the window of the hair salon. To my surprise, the owner is from Brazil and I asked for him to fix my hair. He got me in write away and when it's over I was crying tears of joy. My hair is healthy and blonde and my husband and children is happy for me. I love Francisco and his hair salon and his staff too. Thanks.Was this review helpful?

2 Thumbs UP I had been researching salons in the South Florida area for about four months and kept going back to Guys & Dolls reviews. Let me mention that I have been in Florida for 15 years and have had 2 different hair stylist in that time. I am very loyal and sometimes I tend to stay even when I am not getting the treatment I deserve or the style I want. My mother was a hairstylist and owned her own salon before passing away. I witnessed first hand how a client should be treated and witnessed how the stylist should never be treated by a client. I walked into Guys & Dolls to schedule an appt for the following week after mulling for months over leaving my current stylist. I was greeted by JT who was friendly and seemed impressed that I was respectful on not expecting to get in that day - which was never my intention. I just wanted to see the salon and make sure it was where I wanted to go. He scheduled me with Francisco. A week later I went in for my appt. I had a conversation with everyone in the salon who worked there at some point in time during my visit. EVERYONE was so friendly. Francisco asked me So what we going to do with this hair of yours? and he then listened to what I wanted. He advised me on which way to go and delivered the goods . Beautiful blond hair - best hair color and best highlights in Fort lauderdale that I ever had!! He was so friendly and maticulous. I am definitley going back. The salon is adorable and comfortable. I am a coffee lover and they provide Barnie's coffee and Sirius satellite radio - kudos for having it set to Classic Alternative. As far as price. like everyone at this time I am tight on money. I am paying about the same as my last stylist but getting what I feel is definitely better service. They even sent me an email thanking me and had someone call to followup and make sure I was happy. I would definitely recommend this salon to anyone looking for QUALITY and VALUE! So glad I found them.Was this review helpful?

Dawn - BEST Stylist (and best colorist) Ever!!!!!! I've had my hair cut and styled (and permed) by Dawn for almost 7 years and going. She was recommended to me by a friend of mine who swore by her and after having my first hair cut with her, I understood why she would be such a loyal customer. My brother in law has been working in the beauty industry for over 25 years and has an eye for hair cuts and coloring -- and he has admired Dawn's handwork on my hair every year I see him at family functions. I can go there with utter trust that she would do the right thing for me. As for the salon, she had recently moved to Guys & Dolls and I was truly impressed with the care and service I received there - they not only serve the usual tea and coffee but wine! The place is also very cozy and beautiful, and I got a great manicure by Melanie, who did an amazing job with my nails. Came out of there glowing with new hair and new nails... best hair salon in Fort Lauderdale. Great stylists & atmosphere... kudos to Francisco for putting together such a op notch salon and staff.Was this review helpful?

DONT JUDGE A BOOK (OR A SALON) BY ITS COVER I am new to Fort Lauderdale and I was dreading going through the ordeal of finding a new colorist... coming from San Francisco I was accustomed to high-end salons (and those high-end prices) because they gave me that buttery blond highlighted hair that I so desire. My first experience here in town was a disaster - I went online and thought I found a great salon because of famous clients and a slick website - wrong. Let's just say that it was a disaster and my faith in these online reviews was shattered. 3 months later it was time to try again. Fearing another fiasco I decided to ask for help (something I usually dont do). I sought the ladies who had really great hair - someone from my gym, several from Publix, an attorney, and even a bank teller and a female car saleperson... the verdict: it was like reading a google search, BUT there was one salon that was mentioned way more often than the rest: Guys & Dolls. I again went online and read reviews and, now with recs from real people too, I booked an appointment. I wanted to come in that Saturday (it was Tuesday) and there was a two week wait for a Saturday appointment - my instinct was to find another salon, but after some thought I realized that it was actually a GOOD thing that they were so booked up, so I made my appointment. THE REASON FOR THIS REVIEW:: I arrived, and while I was hoping for a ritzy glitzy locale, the salon was in an unassuming plaza. But, when I walked in I immediately knew it would be great... the place was full of activity and a very positive energy. I was immediately offered a beverage and I truly felt at ease. I waited about 15 minutes and during that time I saw 3 people leave, ALL with gorgeous hair. The place is not only physically busy, it is loaded with stuff ... depression glass, jewelry, plants, lamps, and art - a whole 180 from the minimalistic white marble I was used to. Suffice it to say that if I did not get the exact 'look' I wanted I would not be writing a 5-star review. Francisco was great - and he did it all - cut, highlights, color - I did not have to be shuffled off to 3 different people. His company was delightful and it was just a pleasure... he is truly a soft-spoken, gentle man with an intense humility about him. The entire staff was great and I almost did not want to leave. They had on 70's music and it brought me back to another time in my life...and THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT. The price was very reasonable for the service I received and I can hardly wait to return. Thank You Guys & Dolls,Was this review helpful?

Fabulous Cut & Color! If you're not quite happy with your cut or color but don't really know what to do about it, this is the place to go. OK, my hair was a mess before I went to Guys & Dolls Hair Salon. I had dark and light chunks in my hair, my ends were fried and my hair had no shape whatsoever. Booking my appointment online was a breeze, they called me back immediately to confirm and he was so friendly! I walked in and was greeted with a smile and a drink, and in no time my stylist, Michel was walking over to greet me. We talked for a bit (actually it was at least 15 minutes) about my hair and he reconfirmed what I wanted to do before he went to work! So impressive! Michel also made suggestions about keeping my color toned down to give my hair time to repair and heal. With a beautiful combo of lowlights and highlights, plus a great cut, I left happy as can be!The cut and color took years off me AND made my eye-color pop. He suggested products that have done miracles for the health of my hair, and I booked my next appointment before I left. I am so excited about Guys & Dolls Hair Salon that I also recommended that my best friend come in for a visit. She was booked with Francisco and also is very happy with her hair, and I got a client Thank You for referring her! If you have not been to Guys & Dolls, go, go, and go! This is truly the best salon in Fort Lauderdale!Was this review helpful?
