Todd 100% Yes! – I have been going to Paula's salon for several years now getting my hair cut and styled by todd" who has always been masterful, attentive to detail, consistent accuracy and in fact has been one of the best hairstylist I've ever been to anywhere.
Todd is a artist, and expert at what he does who lives up to his credentials and every good spoken word said about him on this site.
I would trust anyone else with my "loss"!
He's the best!!
Paula YES Todd NO – I don't know what happened but I walked out without what probably would have been gorgeous highlights (first time Paula - a doll) except TODD buthchered my hair and cut them all out. What part of "the length is good"(first thing said) did he not understand I'll never know. VERY diasppointed after growing hair for a year and a half to only have it short again and the cut...bad,bad,bad! Very apparent that he did need his glasses?
Todd Phillip hair – I've lived in different places around the Globe so my experience with stylists has been incredibly varied. From obscenely expensive high-end salons in Paris to quaint shops in Sante Fe, Todd has been the best, period. To be honest, I've never been enthusiastic enough about a stylist to write a review .
The Haircut lasted for an amazingly long time, It was very precise, gave me great body and styling options, while being as simple and easy to care for as I prefer my hair to be. My previous stylist?s errors were rectified by his technique and talented, which made all the difference in how much the quality of the overall look of my hair improved.
The process was unusually consultative - he explained every step and listened to my likes and dislikes, and made absolutely sure we were on the same page before he started cutting. I felt in the best of hands at all times.He's a true professional who takes immense pride in his work
Best Hair Color, Cut, and Blow Dry - Paula and Todd – Moving to Miami Beach has known challenges for your hair - heat, humidity, and salt water.
What I didn't know was to look out for top name salons charging 400 and 500 dollars to turn my hair orange, yellow, and red. I have had this experience at 5 different salons.
Finally I decided to try Paul's salon. Paula, Instead of saying OMG who did this to your hair said - No worries, this can be fixed I do it everyday. It seems that my Miami Beach hair story was not a unique one. Paula has been seeing this same story over and over again for years. Paula did what she promised and more. My hair color looks like nature made it plus some (thanks to the Brazillian Keratin making my hair humidity proof) - yes!!! I followed up the hair color with a haircut and blow dry by Todd - The best at what he does.
These are professional people who are not only talented but take great pride in their work.
Miami's Top Hairstylist "Todd" – I went down to Miami for a business thing, from Manhattan where I live,"born and raised", and I was recommended by a close friend to get a haircut and blow out from Todd Phillip at Paula’s Salon. I don’t "ever" stray from the Madison Avenue area for my hair needs because I am “extremely” and very particular with who touch’s my hair, but my friend was so impressed with Todd’s talent and finesse, I felt it would be worth taking a chance, not to mention her hair looked better then I have ever seen it.
I must say once I sat in Todd’s chair I knew I was in the right place.
He is indeed, extremely talented at what he does, and I must mention his hands have the touch, leaving you wanting more!lol
I’m planning on making extra business in Miami and feel I have and extra reason to fly down.
Thank-you Mr. Todd! Muah!
DEBBIE IS THE BEST!!!!!!! – just had such a great experience at Paula's Salon in South Beach!!! I should start by saying I am kind of a hair snob and even though I've been living in Miami for almost 2 years, I still get my hair cut in NYC with my trusted New York stylist. I was VERY hesitant to try a salon in Miami. However, due to South Florida humidity.... I NEEDED KERATIN ASAP!!!!! This was a PERFECT experience.... the salon is immaculate, the people are very down to earth and nice, and my stylist was AMAZING!!!!! You MUST ask for DEBBIE. She is great!!!!!! I have a LOT of hair and she was super professional, thorough and had amazing attention to detail. She asked me to follow up with her and let her know how I like it, and that said a lot to me. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DEBBIE and Paula's Salon!!!!!!!
Debbie is the best! – I was in Miami for a wedding about a month ago and went to Paula's to get a blowout. I was set up with Debbie Stredwick, and after chatting with her for five minutes, realized how experienced she was. So I made the quick decision to get a haircut too, since I needed one. My hair is wavy and past the shoulders, and lately it seems easy for stylists to screw it up, but I was SO HAPPY with the results. Her hair cut was exactly what I was hoping for, and I still love it a month later. This is a total change for me from my last four bad haircuts from supposedly top (and expensive) NYC stylists. Debbie is pretty new at Paula's, so her name isn't out yet, but she is definitely the stylist you should book with. She's also really friendly, down to earth and easy to chat with. It's too bad I don't live in Miami otherwise I'd be one of her regulars. Thanks Debbie!
Todd Phillip - Stylist Extraordinaire! – Todd Phillip is one of the most talented stylists in South Florida. I've paid lots and lots of money at several different "high-end" salons (e.g. Oribe) and have been severly disappointed with the quality of the hair stylist's work. However, Todd has consistenly cut my hair to perfection. He's amazing...
My only criticism HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TODD, but with the CUSTOMER SERVICE of the salon. I recently bought hair product and was overcharged. When I realized that the item I had purchased was 30ml and the box had a sales sticker that said "50ml $29" I called the salon. Nikki got the call and told me "Well, that's wrong. You bought a 50ml bottle before for $35 and $29 is the price for the 30 ml bottle." Now, I've gone to that salon for a few years and would've expected something more like "Wow, sorry about that. The box was mispriced or mislabeled, but how can be rectify the situation?" When instead I got "Just bring it back." Ok, I am going to do just that.
By the way, the product was AlfaParf Semi Di Lino Diamante Cristalli Liquidi Illuminating Serum, the 50 ml bottle. Paula's has marked up the price of the 30ml bottle to $29 but you can get a 50ml bottle from Amazon for $20 + S&H.
Other than the poor quality customer service, Todd is the shining star at that place. Wouldn't know what to do without him!!!!
Yes, I'm In Love with Todd Phillip. – Yes, I am in love with Todd Phillip, because he has taken my hair to new levels of success!!!, which took nothing more then the stroke of his wonderful hands on my hair, not to mention an incredible neck massage if you are lucky!
I have long hair, and he cut, and detailed the hair around my face, in a way that no one has ever before. His blow dry is amazing in itself, and very worthwhile because it lasted!
If I have to leave Miami I will have to find a way to take him with me, because now that I have him I don’t want to loose him, and my boyfriend will just have to understand.
Magic hands of Todd – Here is a wonderful hairstlyst who is worth of my loyalty and for me to schedule for my trip back and forth from New York.
My hair is simple yet Todd had cut in detail around my face which accentuated my lips and gave me bang which I never thought I could wear but it works so well!! He really spends the time and I highly recommend him because his hands are magic. One thing is when you call for an appointment you need to demand to be booked with him because they had tried to give me to someone else!!! And I said absolutely not!! I will wait for Todd !! which I am so very happy I did that! My next trip I will also get my hair highlighted with Paula as he highly recommended…I also had a wonderful manicure and pedicure with Monique she has such a wonderful touch that between the two of them I was in HEAVEN!
