For those who don't want the latest rage, and get enough spa atmosphere at the spa, the art of hair design is taken to a new level by JB Veltman.
One of Coconut Grove's best kept secrets, JB offers a serene and private hair design studio. JB has traveled the world as a Glemby designated "high fashion" stylist and instructor for couture runway shows and editorial layouts in publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle. JB is equally accomplished at cutting and color. While some colorists specialize in one color, JB has an artist's sensibility and an engineer's precision making any color he does seem natural and attractive. The philosophy of a tranquil, professional studio that offers extraordinary privacy and personalized attention has made the Patrick Garelle Salon the preferred salon of Miami's elite. JB is a Brazilian Keratin Treatment educator.
Best Colorist and Salon in Miami! – I felt compelled to write a review of my experience with JB Veltman, since I was lucky enough to find him here on CitySearch.
My first impression of the salon was Cara, JB?s Assistant. She met me at the door and I immediately liked her. She is adorable, sweet, personable and very attentive.
While most salons in Miami make you feel like you?ve walked into a club in South Beach, with tons of affected people attempting to out trend each other. Walking into JB?s, you instantly feel as comfortable and relaxed as if you stopped by a friend?s house. The salon is small and each client receives JB?s undivided attention.
I was early for my appointment, so I was introduced to JB as he was blowing out a client?s hair. As I watched JB interact with his client, I quickly realized he was a warm, funny, unassuming and artistic person. I relaxed into the couch, sure I was in good hands.
Just as I suspected, my whole experience with JB was an absolute delight! I have naturally dark hair and have been coloring my hair blonde for years. My previous colorists left my hair brassy, damaged and an unnatural blonde. When I walked out of JB?s salon I was left with the prettiest color my hair has ever seen and the assurance from now on my hair is in great hands!
Thanks JB! You and Cara are the best!
JB Saved My Hair! – JB literally saved my hair - or what was left of it! My hair was very damaged from previous highlight jobs that I had received. I was desperate to find a good stylist when I moved to Miami. I was recommended to JB by one of his long tome clients and without a 2nd thought I called and made an appointment. Right when I walked into the salon JB was so welcoming and was genuinely interested in what I had to say about my hair. He asked specific questions about my hair, and really analyzed it to see what would be best to fix the damage that bleach had done to my hair! He told me that it would take about 2 to 3 visits to completely repair my hair - which was FINE with me. After the VERY FIRST visit I could tell a complete transformation - it was SO natural looking and so soft - and of course it got better and better with each visit. He literally saved my hair - and I love it! I have never received so many compliments on the cut and color of my hair!! We had to move from Miami - and I don't know what I am going to do without him. When we moved JB was sweet enough to write down my formula that he was using on my hair - which was so great! I can not thank him enough for what he did for me! I LOVE MY HAIR!!!
JB is the Man! – I have been fortunate to be one of JB's clients for over 5 years now. in that time , JB has not only given me a great haircut every single month(thats a lot of cuts), but in addition , he seems to always have to be able to help me with style questions, tell me what great new book I need to read, and even the right gift for my anniversary( Tiffany).Jb is a professional, very knowledgeable about what he does, and I could not imagine going to anyone else!
The Best! – I was going through City Search looking for a hair stylist when I came accross JB's tag line. I liked that it said "a hair stylist that listens to you". I knew exactly what I wanted but it wasn't until I met JB and he actually listened and took the time to work with me finding the ideal cut and color for my difficult hair. I left the salon happier than I have ever been after having my hair done. I will be back!
Look like a Star........ – I highly recommend J.B Veltman as your one and only hairstylist. J.B. posses an extraordinary artistic gift for hair coloring, and cutting hair. He as an amazing ability to make you look like a STAR. His wonderful and energetic personality makes your visit to his salon a pleasurable experience. As far as Im concern J.B. is irreplacable. I am truly happy and lucky to have found him.
Finally a look I wanted. – I had been going stylist to stylist, never finding someone who could highlight my dark brown hair to look natural and young but with no red. I did not want to be another blond, or a dingy brunette: i wanted to keep my natural color, but to look more like my law school pictures. JB was the first person to understand and give me highlights in my dark brown hair that looked the way I wanted. It's also nice to have a stylist who encourages clients who like their long hair to keep it long and current.
JB is AMAZING! GREAT COLOR! GREAT CUT! – I read the reviews on citysearch and decided to give JB a go! He is fantastic! My hair was damaged from a previous hairdresser and my color was in desperate need of a change. He not only saved my hair but he gave it an amazing color with great highlights. Be sure to ask him about his layers too. I have really thick hair so it is hard to get a good cut. Everyone compliments it!
Great salon, beautiful area, and always on time (which is more than I can say for every other hairdresser in the world).
Oh yeah...he's hilarious too! He'll have you laughing so hard you won't want to leave!!!
a great cut for a professional by real pro – Time is important to me with my schedule, and I get my haircut every 3 weeks. JB has been cutting my hair for a long time and it is always a pleasure to work with JB. I'm glad I listened to my girlfriend who told me to stop getting insurance-salesman-type haircuts. JB gives me a look that looks professional but has a slight edge. I recommend him highly.
Editorial Review – Combining runway experience and state of the art techniques this stylist brings versatile color treatments to downtown Miami.
For more than just a hair cut and dye job! – I have very curly hair and have been on a mission my entire life to find someone who knows how to cut curly hair. Fifteen years ago I found JB and my hair has never been the same. My curls are wonderfully flowing thanks to JB! I finally got my sister to visit while she was in Miami from Vancouver. She was cutting her own hair and doing her own color. When JB was done with her, she looked like a different person. You should have seen her glow! When I began to show signs of graying JB was there to hide them. I have never found anyone who matches his creativity in mixing color. I know this is true because one time I needed to have my hair colored and JB was out of town. I went to a salon near my home and needless to say, I never went back. If I have stay gray a while longer than usual so be it - The only one I?m letting near my hair with color is JB!
