Edgy, Funky, Hip If You So Desire – My entire life I like an edgy look. The gal who I was going to was not giving my hair the excitement that I wanted. Thinking of someone who has exciting hair brought me to my doctor's office manager and she recommended Guys & Dolls to me. Dawn was booked the day I chose and the owner encouraged me to try another stylist, promising that I will love it. I told Francisco that I wanted an edgy cut and a bright, fun color and shortly thereafter I had a beautiful head of coppery hair with slight accents of blond and red, and an equally brilliant cut to compliment the look. Ecstasy. Exciting. Envigorating. I felt like a canvas that Picasso & Rembrandt had collaborated on. I could not be happier. If you like being a trend-setter instead of a follower... if you want to be noticed (in a good way), and you want your hair to make a statement about your personality, come to this salon. I saw Dawn's client and it was another great job - crimson & black highlights. The staff is tight and they deliver the "goods". If you are thinking about trying Guys & Dolls, R*U*N, dont walk
Best Blonde Highlights I Ever Had – I found this salon while I was searching for Schwarzkopf hair products. I was not even calling for an appointment - I only wanted shampoo, however, I enjoyed speaking with the owner (JT) so much, that when he inadvertently asked me if I was thrilled with my hair color and hair stylist - who I have been with for over 6 years - it made me think...I could NOT honestly answer 'yes'. The last few times I was at my old salon, things were different and my old stylist's work was not up to par. So I figured if Guys & Dolls carry Schwarzkopf products and had such a pleasant, direct, self-assured owner personally answering the phone, I would give them a chance. I checked out the web site and it was great - I got a good feel for who the staff are and what the place was like and decided it was a salon I would enjoy trying, so I booked my appointment (I did have to wait 3 weeks to get a Saturday appointment with Francisco). THE REASON FOR THIS REVIEW: As soon as I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed with the decor of the place - very eclectic and reminded me of home. They were playing SiriusXM Alt Nation (my fav) and I was greeted by JT. The assistant immediately welcomed me and offered me a beverage and I heard Francisco yell "Jessie, get her ready for color". I was given a clean gown to change into and led into the bathroom/changing room - very nice and CLEAN. I did make myself a cup of Barnies coffee and grab a magazine and I was enjoying watching the stylists work. It is so rare these days to see a group work together and get along so well - everyone was friendly and the place just had such a positive vibe going on.. I enjoyed being there and I felt like I was part of something. Needless to say that when all was said & done and the foils were removed and I was rinsed out, my hair was AWESOME - it came out better than I could have hoped for and I felt great. If I had felt this good after walking out of my old salon I would still be a client there - but this only re-affirms my decision to try Guys & Dolls. Had it not been for how direct, courteous, and knowledgeable JT was on my initial phone call this would have never happened - it just goes to show that you never know how things will work out. I recommend Guys & Dolls to all... JT & Francisco run a great shop and it shows in how busy the place is. Just a great place for hair color, highlights, and good coffee and music. And, I received no less than 4 compliments that afternoon while I was out doing errands :-).
Thank you Pam. It was great to meet you, too. The irony is that I just reviewed your invoice and you left WITHOUT ever buying that Schwarzkopf shampoo which you had initially called us about. I am always glad to hear when our clients get complimented on their new look. Happy New Year.
REVIEW FOR GUYS & DOLLS HAIR SALON – I've known Sherry Benson for 30+ years and have had her style my hair for that length of time. She is an absolute professional and does a wonderful job. I look forward to my appointments with her-not only do I leave looking much better, but I enjoy my time with her. She's a gem and I treasure her.
Sherry Benson has been cutting my hair for many many years.
I keep coming back because I appreciate her professionalism and desire keep me looking my best. Many of my friends also go to Sherry and we often comment on what a great job she does.
I recommend her to anyone who wants a great hairstylist.
Yes They Can – I am new to Fort Lauderdale and the first thing on my 'To Do' list was to find a hair stylist. Although there was definitley a sense of urgency, I did not want to rush into anything and have regrets. So I did my due diligence and after an extensive online search I decided that Guys & Dolls would be the choice. They have a great web site and I really enjoyed those Before/After pics. The owner (Jonathan) answered and he patiently listened as I explained my situation. He seemed easy going and confident, and it was the way he told me that "he is the luckiest owner around because he has 4 great colorists and he doesn't have to wrry whose chair I sit in". Boy was he right. I was lucky enough to sit with Tory and she took my jet-black hair to a lovely brown with highlights and she explained the process and was honest about what could be done on the first visit. During my 150 minutes there, I saw the work of the rest of the staff and Jonathan was right... they are all great. The place was busy and lively and it ran smooth. I had a great experience and I let them add my pic to the album. Cannot wait to return.
Hello Maria -
Thanks for your review and your vote of confidence. I get a call similar to yours almost every day and becasue of the staff at Guys & Dolls, mine is an easy job - just tell the truth! I dont have to steer a new client away from any of my stylitsts - in addition to their talent, they all share the same commitment to integrity, honesty, and making sure that every client who leaves the salon had a great experience and looks awesome. On a 90-day rolling average, we get 250 new first time clients and WE RETAIN THEM, as evidenced by a full book and the need to make an appointment. We will definitley publish your Before/After pics - as everyone knows, it is not easy to take jet-black like yours and transform it to a warm, beautiful brunette with highlights. Welcome to Guys & Dolls.
Best Salon In Town – My hair was a disaster after getting it cut at another joint. I should have done my homework. The place looks like an antique shop and you would never expect to receive a phenomenal haircut. In fact I was worried because it looks opposite of the high end salon and it has reasonable prices. Michelle gave me a consultation and then cut and styled my hair. I am forever amazed at how relaxed I felt and how the conversation was easy. I did not feel like my stylist was rushing through me... in fact he took the time to get to know me. My haircut is amazing. I never thought he could fix it as well as he did. My entire family will now be heading there. No other salon will ever get their hands on my hair again. Upon check out the owner was nice and welcoming and it seems like he knew all of the people in my network. I am now a loyal client... THANK YOU GUYS AND DOLLS!!!!!
Thank you for your kind words.... I guess, if you would feel better, we could raise our prices! But we wont - at this price level we can survive and so can our clients... they KNOW that they are getting the best bang for their buck here at Guys & Dolls. It is a great feeling to know that our work is superior to those posh salons that charge twice as much. Looking forward to meeting the rest of your family. Thank you.
WOW - I Am Speechless – I have lived in Fort Lauderdale for many years and up until this point there are 2 things that I had never done. First, I had never thought of my hair other than just being part of my face, like my nose.. it's there but it's not a big deal and surely nothing I can do anything about. I never went to a salon and I had maintained and cut it myself. I am 35 and have had the same basic hairstyle since I was a teenager. About a year ago I decided that I would make a donation to 'Locks of Love' and when I had the requisite 10-inches to spare I was ready to find a salon to go to. So I googled, I binged, I yelped, I yahoo'ed, and I searched citysearch. What I noticed was that there was one salon that consistently got top rank in the categories I searched and that salon was Guys & Dolls. So I went to the hairkuts dot com website and I actually found it to be quite interesting, informative, and FUN. The videos were great, the prices seemd fair, the staff looked normal and then I stumbled upon the Before & After pics. It was amazing to see these clients - these were REAL people, not some fancied-up models. I could not believe how good they looked in the After shots. Then, it was what happened next that pushed me to make an appointment... I actually saw someone I knew in a Before/After pic, and she looked damn good in the After shot. I called her up and she could not say enough great things about the salon & Francisco, so I booked my appointment. This leads me to the second thing that I had never done before in my life - I had never felt strongly enough to leave a review online for anything, until now.
I called to schedule an appointment and I had to wait 2 weeks to get the time I wanted on a Saturday. When the day arrived, I got there 20 minutes early so I could take it all in... I actually felt like I had been there before from all the time I spent on there website. I was immediatley greeted and offered a beverage and then I just walked around taking in the visual overload. I mean between the furniture, pictures, artwork, jewelry - it was like being in a gallery. And the classic new-wave 80's music was great. I couldnt help but notice how busy the place was - it was VERY busy and the staff was working in sync like a fine Swiss watch - the flow of the clients was smooth. The people walking out looked gorgeous and I was very excited to finally be called and sat down in Francisco's chair. He greeted me with "So what we gonna do with this hair of yours?" He was even nicer in person than I imagined he would be from the videos. 35 minutes later I could not belive what Isaw in the mirror - it was like looking at a stranger (a beautiful stranger) and I was almost in tears of happiness. People who I had known for years and who never ever remarked about my appearance were raving about how great I looked with this new hairstyle AND IT FELT GREAT TO RECEIVE A COMPLIMENT. In fact, I scheduled an appointement for some color & highlights and I keep asking myself how I could have gone 35 years without ever makng any effort to have nice hair.. I feel like a new person and my confidence & self-esteem have never been so healthy. For those of you who are skeptical of what you read, take it from me - this place may not be fancy, but it is clean, fun, and the staff is top notch. My only regret other than that it took me so long to finally find Guys & Dolls, is that I would not let them take a before & after picture of me... it would have been dramatic, but now I have a new home and they have a client for life.
I remember you very well and I am so pleased that you FINALLY love your hair. It would not be the first time that a client had tears of joy after discovering how good they can look with the right hair style. When you come in for your color appointment we will definitely get that Before/After shot of you. Welcome to Guys & Dolls!!
Awesome – Just wanted to say that Guys and Dolls is an awsome salon! I was very unhappy with my hair as it was black from another local salon. I did not want black hair but they gave it to me anyway. I decided to do a search for color specialists to be able to change the color of my hair and found Guys and Dolls. Having numerous five star reviews on corrective color, I decided to give them a try. I spoke to Jonathan to get an appointment and he was so friendly and made me feel welcome. I had a consult with Tory who made me feel so comfortable with what she was going to do to get rid of this black hair! I trusted her and felt at ease because of her expertise, confidence and kindness. She did an amazing job with my hair. It looks 100% better!!! Believe me I was afraid to go anywhere after what I have been through with my hair, but I am writing to tell people that you can count on this place to do a beautiful job on your hair no matter what shape it is in!!!! Everyone in the place was so kind and friendly to me! Its a very comfortable atmosphere. I also met Francisco who was very informative on color and advice. For anyone who is skeptical like I was, this is the place for you. You will not regret it.
Thank you for yor kind words. I could tell on the phone that you were nervous about coming in and I am so glad that you listened. Tori is an excellent colorist and one of the few that will take black hair and make it blond. I always tell new clients taht as an owner I am the luckiest person in the world to have the 4 BEST colorists/stylists in Fort Lauderdale... I do not have to worry about whose chair a new client sits in. They all have their own style and I actually encourage clients to try them all out. I am so glad that you got what you were looking for.
Once, maybe twice in your lifetime you may be fortunate and stumble upon an establishment that is so right in every way, that a smile, a hug, a thank you, a complement, a tip, just simply is not enough. I was there yesterday at Guys & Dolls Hairkuts.
Prior to yesterday for me a visit to the salon was pretty much comparable to a visit to the dentist, a necessity, nothing more, and nothing less. Not any more, WOW.
Pride of ownership and love of your profession, what a breath of fresh air. Owner, manager, staff, preparing for clients, confirming appointments 60 to 45 minutes prior to opening. Mid day Saturday blossoming into a harmonious group of enormously talented professionals. OUTSTANDING.
Thank you for your review. I do not know how to respond - this review that you left is the kindest (and most accurate) review I have EVER read. Sure we have lots of great reviews, but yours takes a review to a level I have never experienced!!! The word review means to view again, and when I read your review I see what goes on here every day and you were able to articulate what we do. Are you a professional writer? If so, let me read your books. Your delicate prose paints a picture of what we do here at Guys & Dolls and you were able to capture it in your words like never before. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM AT A LOSS FOR WORDS!!!!!!!!! Jonathan
I LOVE MY HAIR! – I saw them on the side of the road and thought their salon looked nice. I went on to their website and really liked what I saw. I contacted them on their website and they contacted me back right away. I had not had my hair done in 4 years and it was seriously damaged. I was really scared and I since I moved here I have not known where to go. They allowed me to come in the very next day. I met with the most amazing woman, Tori, she addressed my concerns and gave me her professional advice. It worked! My hair was so blonde that it normally would not have taken color at all but she made it happen and it didn't break my wallet. I am now a red head with beautiful blonde hi-lights and I never thought I would be able to do it with what I walked in with. They are the kindest people I have ever met at a salon. I was not judged and instead was cared for a loved from the very start. You are immediately greeted up front by absolute kindness and they serve coffee! I love this place and words can not express my gratitude!!!
Thank you for your review. I love what Tori did to you and I am so glad youare thrilled. Welcome to Guys & Dolls.
