Miami's Best Salon – I've been to a lot of salons over the years, but I was referred to Portfolio Salon by a friend and I will never go anywhere else!
The service is incredible from the moment you walk in the door...I love my hair!!! The owner(Lili) did a fabulous job on my color and cut, and red is not an easy color to do! I also had a mani/pedi with Miya and she really cleaned up my cuticles and scrubbed my feet till they were super soft.
I've told all my friends and family about Portfolio Salon and you know it's great if I took the time to write this!
Good cut – My friend and i went in during the summer of 2009 with horrable haircuts another friend gave us. Yamil and Fabian were our hair saviors. They cut our hair and left it as if it had never been damaged in the first place. We looked amazing. On top of everything, i had to take my 1yr old with me who started crying bc he wanted to be held so Yamil let me hold him as he cut his heart away. He never even made a frown of remark. Total professional. I am looking forward to going back in a few months. The only con is that the cuts are real expensive ($65)but they are worth it. and the blck robes they give you to wear are a little small if your a little on the chuncky side. But they put another robe on top before they cut so you don't get hair on you at all. Over all, i had a good experience.
Let your haters be your motivators! – Wow! I work at Portfolio and after reading the last review
I have to say it sounds more like an angry ex staff member that a clients review of any business. I also see some prejudice against cubans especially from Hialeah. It's sad that a business that has been family owned and operated for 21 years is so envied. Everyone who works at Portfolio is caring, very talented, and honest. Don't allow a persons revenge against the owner sway you from making an appointment and having the best manicure, color/cut, and special occasion service done with personal attention that you have ever had.
worst salon ever!!!!! – This salon is the worst place i have gone to. Instead of going to relaxe myself i was stressed when i left. They take forever to assist you, they are very loud i feel like im in hialeah. The owner Lily is very rude and has no manners. She has no consideration with anyone. she has alot of people working with out papers , they are not citizens.They are working without a lisence. i suggest you all to be extremly careful with who does your hair and make sure they dont damage it. This place is very anti professional especially the owner. The prices for everything are extremly expensive, everything is over prices. The employees are very dis honest. She has her assistances working like slaves, she doesnt care about their feeeling, she treats them like shit. I will not recommend this salon at all, not even if they pay me to. The salon is fake and so is LILY.

The longest time running for color, trim, and blow-out... – Let's just say if one wants to be in a salon for 5 hours and know your color is not right, your highlights are all wrong and the trim was uneven! Although the staff is friendly, keep in mind the English language is not primary source of communication. After meeting the stylist, the owner---who appeared friendly---but distant and was late for my appointment, I thought perhaps this won't be too bad. The owner, started my hair and she couldn't stop talking to other people who entered the store; therefore, her actual time spent with me could have been cut in half. I often wonder what possesses people to think other's 'time' is not as important. I will not ever go back, nor could I recommend this salon. The people at the front are friendly if you buy something, only. The manicures are good and the staff assisting these treatments are good, but don't go in---you will be suckered in like I was for 3 times! Way toooooo expensive!!!!!!
great staff..horrible owner – fabian emiliano and yamil are the best..great people and great stylists.. you'll love your hair again =)
prices are average..but with them its worth your money..
try to avoid the owner =s
