HAIR – First of all when you leave a review it is supposed to be about the business in a professional manner. Not some forum blog that includes name calling and make r a c i s t claims. Immigrants last time I checked we are all immigrants unless you are Native American...
I dont get my hair cut by Gio but by the other guy that works there. But, what I do know about him is that he is all about business and is very aware of the nature of customer service. Doing hair and nails is a "by word of mouth" business and not taken lightly when people try and come on here and defame someone especially calling them names...
Weddings take planning and should never be done on a whim...So this is entirely your fault for not being prepared. Do not pass your misfortune on someone that was informng you on how to prepare and what he needed to do in order to make both your time and his time valuable.
Good luck with your wedding, your soon to be found a real winner...
P.S. And I have never seen the bathroom dirty...
How sad some people can be. – Unfortunatelly, this type of people you see them everyday, is on us to allowed them that their omment bother us. For this person information Gio was born and raised in Orlando, Gio or all the time that I have known him (3 yrs) and has been my hairstylist always ben very proffesional, respectfull, ethical and considerate to others. I used to go to a Hair Salon in Park Avenue,. Overthere they did rob me and when I found Gio since he was highly recomended by a Physician at the hospital I work for I was blessed, I always pay him more that what he charges because his motto is that a woman does not have to look bad due to high prices.
He may be overweight, but he is very happy guy that even when he is sad addresses to other people with respect. Maybe domeone like the little girl that made a poor review of Gio is so sad that she could not take his happiness. probably she is even depressed but what tops everything is that she is a rude, unrespectful, unmature person.
Maybe you should not get married because you may be looking for some kind of happiness in your life but you are doing it wrong.
She didn't know what she missed – So let's tell the truth. You thought you would get VIP treatment because you were getting married. Did it ever cross your mind that maybe Gio didn't call you back right away because EVERYONE around this area books him weeks in advance??
The story goes: when you showed up you expected Gio to drop everything to wait on you. When asked what your wedding gown looked like or the color of it you couldn't describe it. You didn't bring your wedding veil or hair piece and couldn't describe it. When asked how you wanted your hair done you pointed to a picture on the wall but he suggested your hair wouldn't look good with that style because of your facial features and bone structure. So basically he wanted you to come back and to bring your veil with you so he could properly style your hair. BTW, they are all Puerto Ricans, whom are Americans.
You also mentioned that he will probably rob you when in fact he charges the most reasonable rates. All I can say is you're young and immature because not only have I been going to Gio for over 2 years now, I have even taken by family members to get their hair done by him and they don't even live in Orlando, but every time they return they call me in advanced to ask me if I can set up and appointment with Gio for them.
AND my co-workers, no matter what their race, have went to Gio one time and they all have switched their stylist to now ONLY Gio. I personally go to Gio and have left him to decide the style, cut, and color of my hair. He decides how he's going to do my hair based on my skin tone, eye color, and hair texture and trust me he has not disappointed me. I would easily pay over $100 if I went to Miami.
The bottom line is because you didn't get your hair done by a stylist (Gio) how can you write a review about him? Next time come prepared! I don't think you would find any respectable stylist that would do your hair for your wedding day without knowing what you are wearing and the color of your gown - unless all they wanted was your money, which it doesn't appear that Gio needed. AND it's my understanding that you posted your prejudiced review on multiple sites, how immature is that? You must be an underage bride.... OH WELL!
Horrible Salon – Ok! So I was looking for a hair dresser for my wedding day...I was recommended by a co-worker to VIP Salon....I was warned that the place was not fancy but that "Gio" was professional and "good".... Been in an emergency, I went to check out the place....OMG I was so scared to park my car, the place smells....it is just awful! I waited for an hour. Then I see this huge gay guy that comes out of their very dirty, never been clean bathroom....pretty much telling me that the idea I had was just not going to work for me, and that I had come unprepared???...He pretty much rushed me off the place asking me to reschedule my 6:00 pm appointment after driving an hour to get there, because he had someone that was going to come for a hair color... How rude is that!
Furthermore, I had gotten lost and needed directions to get to the Salon, I called Gio, he said that he was busy and that he would call me back, it took him about 30 mins to return my phone call...I should have anticipated that the Salon was a disaster from the gecko.....OH WELL!
I think that place needs to be reviewed by the county it is just awful and I honestly believe these guys don't even have a license to run it! I think they are illegal immigrants and that the place needs to be closed down.
I'm telling you do not go there, you will be wasting your time and probably get robed by "Gio" (the fat scary gay guy)
