Cristian does the best blow-dry in Miami!!! – Hands down!!! Amazingggg! The best. Also amazing color and the extension master! Really, I've tried salons all over Miami Beach and the Brickell area and ever since I met Cris over a year ago, Ive been coming twice a week, every week. Whether you need an easy blow-dry to get you through the work week, a fancy one for a big night out, a corrective dye job because somewhere else turned your hair a hideous shade of orange or extensions to make you look and feel sexy, Cristian is your man and Gustavo Briand is the place.
Global Travel Solutions Triple AAA Service – Global Travel Solutions helped me save so much on traveling,Tim gave us the program line by line,and we went all out to purchase the best program they had. Luv the perks and all the extras,we saved so much,guess where my wife is geting her hair done ? Yes the one and only Gustavo briand studio,find out more at funwithgts dot com
I don't get it... – So...I posted a review in October when I went to that salon and got my hair destroyed by Christian. I came out with hair looking green/ grayish and damaged to such an extent that I had to cut it three times since then in order to look kind of normal.
After 5 months of not having heard from anyone, even though I sent an email complaining and requesting a refund ($350 + $40 tip- kind of steep to have something so horrible done to me), the owner finally called me.
It was on a Monday morning, two weeks ago. He told me he was out of the country until now (for 5 months? No wonder his employees are doing such a poor job). he apologized and told me he only just now learned about the disaster that happened to me.
He told me that if I wanted, I could come try to have him work on my hair...
I told him, there was no way I would ever set foot again in his salon, that what Christian did to my hair was a disgrace, that I had been going to another hairdresser for the last five months trying to fix my hair (it finally looks good, but it took me hundreds of dollars to get there- I have beautiful, long wavy blond hair...well, at least I use to have...still working on getting it back).
Anyway...I told him that I would appreciate a refund instead of going back to his salon....he told me he would go to his business and check my invoice, and he told me I would "FOR SURE" hear back from him before the end of the week.
Well...it's been two weeks, no news, no offer to give me my money back...
So again, avoid this place at all cost!!!
Horrible service, horrible customer service, and I am sure that all the raving reviews are FAKE!!! Do not waste your time and money.
Hi there, This is Gustavo Briand, I just read your review, Sorry for having that bad experience with us.
Please give me a call so I can personally take a look at your hair 305-673-3600, I have been away from my business and I am back, it would be a privilege to make you happy!
That is why I oppened this salon, to make you happy!
Where to Get the Red-Carpet Look: Gustavo Briand Studio – I did my hair with all three: Patricia, Cristian and Gustavo. I am very hard to please. All three have "wowed" me. Patricia has a keen eye for precision and symmetry, and her haircuts are classy and well-groomed. Cristian is the Michelangelo of colorists. Before your color, he will study your hair together with your complexion to ensure your color looks natural. Gustavo has a gift for giving your hair a modern personality. He genuinely loves the clients and wants to see them happy.
I browsed through the (very rare) negative reviews and saw two trends: bad haircut/color and price. The former stems from bad communication from clients who didn't express what they wanted. As for price, the salon posts its prices on the website, so price should be no surprise.
The salon staff, above all, is warm, down-to-earth and welcoming. You will leave the salon looking and feeling beautiful.
Best Haircutter – We know that most people employed in salons do not know how to cut hair. But this guy Gustavo is amazing! He is gifted and intuitive and really knows his stuff! The salon is not the loud phony typical salon, and tastefully done for a small space. I would highly recommend!
Wonderful! – I came to Miami for a vacation and was looking to have my hair cut & colored while on my trip. I used Citysearch to find Gustavo Briand, & I'm so glad that I did! I'm very picky about my hair, & I've had my fair share of amazing & horrible haircuts, in both small towns & large cities all over the U.S. Gustavo gave me one of the best haircuts & colors that I've ever had. I also had a wonderful experience while in the salon - Gustavo & his staff made me so comfortable, & were so professional. I'm looking forward to going back the next time I'm in Miami! Highly recommended.
Gustavo Briand is the Best, BUT... – Gustavo's Salon is my second home, since I am there at least 3 x a month. I love Cristian who gives me the best color and always surprises me with the most beautiful blow out. He is so sweet, attentive, caring and understanding of all my needs and moods (which I have, I must addmit). Dragana, the receptionist, or the soul of the Salon is a rare gem, If you are lucky to engage into conversation with her, your day will change for better, instantly.
The only thing bothering me is the music in the Salon and Gustavo's attitude. I made the comment the other day about the music, just kindly asking to change it to something relaxing and I got rude answer: You don't like it, but I do! I hope Gustavo will understand soon that clients like me are paying pretty high prices ( I am not complaining about that), and it's about what clients like. It's not about what he likes. Whatever he likes, he can listen at home (just a friendly suggestion).
Thank You so much for posting your point of view!
Cristian IS FABULOUS!
Thanks to you people we keep our business going.
You are welcom in our our salon which is like my living room, in which we get to be friendly & amicable, all our clients are our friends. In that enviroment I have created, includes the international flavour of music OMG so many things.
My commitment as an artist is to expose clients to everything musically speaking.
Feel free to bring your cds & I promiss I will download them & we as always will play Random, whenever you dont feel comfortable with it just tell us & we will play NEXT in our IPAD.
I keep asking people to bring to us things we ALL like!
I admit I was curt because I explained to you I had a rough day & you had nothing to do with it.
I appologize about it as I should & I am willing to compromise with our musical choices.
Thank You for being a lovely client, we love you, Thank You for your business.
CRISTIAN IS AMAZING :)) – Longing for a new look and do something nice for myself I decided to try this Salon and found out about it through this website.
I just had may hair colored today by Cristian and he is amazing. Very professional, attentive, and listens to what his client wants. It seems to me that he took the image of what I wanted myself to look like in my head and he made it happen. I could not believe how great the color came out, the highlights looked so natural, and how he styled my hair and made these romantic waves with it. He is truly an artist using the latest in hair color and care. I really appreciated all the time and effort he but into my hair. I will definitely return to CRISTIAN and would recommend him to family and friends. Cristian is five stars on my list. I was scared about trying a new salon with new people but give him a try he is excellent you will not regret it.
I also had my haircut by Gustavo the owner, had a rough start with him he kept me waiting once he had the time to approach me I mentioned to him that my boyfriend does not like my hair short and he won't let me back in the house if it is too short as a joke he stated I did not have threaten him with that statement ... and stated he actually likes his clients to grow long hair. Yikes what a snappy response. Later his personal phone ringing all the time and my having to wait for him to finish his calls in between cutting my hair. I thought his behavior was very unprofessional he made it seem like his calls were more important than the client he had in his chair.. He did apologize for the inconvenience and did some touch up my bangs prior to leaving which helped lessen the awkward moments had. Apologies were accepted and I moved on but it still left me with a bad impression.I would have given this salon a 5 star if it were not for my hair cutting experience.
All in all my haircut did come out lovely and so did my color :) I do not know though if it was worth $450 dollars yikes especially for a Grad Student ... I will see how my hair grows out in the following months.
I am so sorry you were the exeption to the rule I almost NEVER answer personal call during my appointments.
You are no diffrenet than anyone else, Thanks to you we have our doors open.
I foretold you before I started I will have this problem with the calls, it was very unlikely, also I appologyze before they were happening.
Cristian is Great Thank God he gave you such beautiful blowdry.
Please Thank Your boyfriend too for the business.
I invite you to return & experience my day without an emergency, I promiss you a royal treatment and a treat, you deserve it, Thank you for your patience.
Miami's Little Secret – I loved Gustavo....

I will be going back forsure. It was a great experience all round.
Thank you...and my haircut rocks
will be back soon...
Patricia is well worth the trip!!! – I'm sure many will agree that when you find a hair stylist that you love, you will often travel for or follow them wherever they go. I have found that in Patricia at Gustavo Briand Studio on Miami Beach!
I first came to Gustavo Briand over a year ago while visiting Miami. I was in desperate need of a new look/cut to my long hair. I normally wouldn't blindly walk in to a salon and have someone I don't know cut my hair but I was in desperate need of help asmy hair had just gotten all together too long and lifeless. I had heard good things about the salon and decided I would give it a try. Luckily, I got a same day appointment with Patricia who was so sweet and listened to my ideas and concerns. My cut was GORGEOUS, bouncy, healthy and so shiny afterwards....the blow out was too amazing for words! I now look forward towards my trips to Florida not only for the beaches and sun but for a relaxing trip to the salon before a night out on the town! This past time I visited, Patricia gave me a brazilian straightening treatment that made my hair so shiny and manageable. I am in love with the look of my hair and also how much easier it is to style on a daily basis, Patricia is the best! Again, besides her professionalism and talent she is also a sweetheart. Patricia at Gustavo Briand Studio is a 10 in my book!!!
