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?

For the Record I have been going to Guys & Dolls for over 10 years - since they were on E. Sunrise. If anyone is qualified to write a review, it is me. Now of course I am partial, but if I didn't feel strongly about Guys & Dolls I wouldn't take the time. Francisco took over when Linda & Dana moved away. What he has done with the salon since they left is incredible. Most importantly, besides a great location, is his staff. I have become intimately acquainted with the entire staff and they are like the Gold Medal Olympians of hair. They dont pretend to be something they are not - they ARE experts at what they do: styling & Color. They do NOT need to use those colored foils that you see at 'fancy salons' - all those foils do is cost more money which is ultimatley paid by the client. When they do hilights, to watch Francisco or Michel put on foils is mind-blowing - such technique. And I think I saw Francisco once put 350 rollers in a lady's head while doing a perm - boy did she have great, tight curls. The one thing that you cant help but notice is who sits in Francisco's chair: everyone! I have never seen someone so comfortable with 4 year-old kids, 85 year-olds, young men with their fades, or ladies with highlights. He genuinely loves what he does and he loves people... that is why he always has someone in his chair. And being from Brazil, with his dark hair & eyes, he is not too hard to look at. Maybe that is TMI, but after all these years I feel like he is family. To see the way he has grown as a stylist and to see him in charge of Guys & Dolls is heartwarming. I dont want to get too mushy, so in closing all I can say is that when you are ready for your next hair service, whether you want to try something new or just go with what works for you, Guys & Dolls will leave you saying My hair looks great as you leave and it wont break the bank. If you are they type who feels that you must spend a fortune to look great then you have not tried the team at Guys & Dolls. Dawn, Michel, Melanie, Sherry, and Francisco will gladly welcome you and they will make you look great. Pros: The stylists, the salon, the coffee. Cons: Nada This review reposted from citysearch.com.Was this review helpful?

A Big Thanks from the Owners The Owners of Guys & Dolls Hairkuts want to take a moment to thank all of our loyal clients. This is our 5th year at the Cypress Creek location and each of the 4 previous years has been better than the one before. We attribute this to many factors - the biggest one being our staff. Our stylists have been with us for years - they have been been turning out the best hair styles and best hair color in Fort Lauderdale and the clients appreciate that and remain loyal. Francisco has been with Guys & Dolls for over a decade and now has many clients also reaching the 10-year mark with Guys & Dolls. This past summer we were the victims of a malicious acct of jealousy by a rival salon - Ethan knows who he is and that he was kicked off yelp.com- and all I can say is that we must be doing our job very well if we stirred up those feelings. Google intervened and removed the trashy comments and we will just keep doing what we do best.... makig the ladies and gents of Fort Lauderdale have the best styles and best hair color available. Thank YouWas this review helpful?

Thank You This is co owner ofGuys & Dolls Francisco and i want to take this time the thank each and everyone who has written review postive and negative reviews . I always want to thank Google for making us one of a #1 favorite place on google maps. This review is for the consumer who does read reviews. Our profession is a very competitive field. For example when a hair stylist leaves a hair salon, the salon will not give the location of the new salon they have moved to . I feel that is totally wrong . That is just one example of our field. Another example is other hair stylists stealing reviews, as I have called them to the block and now they come on my site and bash my salon. I am sure the readers of these comments are smart enough to see this. It's tuff out there but our product and hair abilities speak for itself. That's why we rank #1 or #2 or #3 in google listings.

Look No Further Guys & Dolls is the ONLY place I will ever trust with my highlights! Dawn & Francisco & Michel aren't just amazing professional hair stylists and colorists, they have also proven to be a good friends to all those who are lucky enough to experience Guys & Dolls. I found Guys & Dolls through a search for 'Fort Lauderdale Best Hair Salon' a couple of years ago, and over the years I have been lucky enough to try ALL of their stylists and even now that I've moved to Tampa, I won't ever let anyone else touch my hair – they ARE that brilliant, especially for difficult blondes like me! Guys & Dolls does THE BEST work creating multi-dimensional, long-lasting and natural-looking blonde highlights in Fort Lauderdale. In the many years I've been in FL, I've tried out most of the big-name hair salons imaginable, searching to recreate the healthy, natural-looking blonde of my youth from the bleach-out, sun/salt/chlorine damaged locks my active FL lifestyle created. With all the hair salons I have tried, I never returned to the same salon twice because I never got personal attention, I always paid way too much, and I always left with the same, generic blonde hair you seem to see on every soccer mom and street corner in Weston. So, to say I was a little disillusioned by the time I read Guys & Dolls reviews on CitySearch and made an appointment is an understatement. But, I was SO pleasantly surprised with the team at Guys & Dolls! First, they spend A LOT of time with each of their clients. My appointments tend run about 2 hours with rare overlap in appointments. Dawn & Francisco & Michel have never once been late or kept me waiting, or taken calls during our appointments, and I've never ever felt rushed. Second, the staff at Guys & Dolls are color specialists. At your first appointment, you'll receive an assessment of the quality of your hair and what sort of cut/color you're looking for and they will offer you advice about how to make that work with the shape of your face/features and your individual coloring/complexion. Then, you'll get advice about what color or combination of colors will work best with your unique skin and eye coloration. (They typically apply 2-3 different color highlights into my hair, alternating every other appointment between highlights and lowlights.) The result, for me, is that my hair looks healthier than it has in years (despite the damage I inflict upon it!), and I finally have my youthful blonde back. They've done such a tremendous job correcting my dishwater blonde/brown locks that I keep receiving compliments on the cut/color – even weeks after my appointments when the roots are starting to show. In fact, they do SUCH a tremendous job with my hair color and cut, that I don't even really have to come in to see him for touch ups that often – maybe once every 2 months, since the highlights grow out so naturally. (That's less for him, but more for my pocketbook!) Lastly, the staff at this top notch Fort Lauderdale Hair Salon are just a really decent human beings and a whole lot of fun to talk to during the appointments. You can tell that they have good relationships with everybody at the salon. Also, unlike a lot of other hair stylists out there (and again, I think I've seen a lot of the best Fort Lauderdale has to offer!), they seem to really take pride in their profession and in getting to know their clients and helping them be their best selves. The entire team at Guys & Dolls have created such a welcoming, “family” environment, that I look forward to the drive out there and won't be seeing anyone else anytime soon. Thank you, Dawn, Michel, & Francisco!Was this review helpful?
