I'm writing this review the morning after my enlightening afternoon experience at Divine Designs Salon And Spa. Honestly, I wasn't expecting too much from a salon experience. Especially with today's very troubled economy, I really can't afford to spend an exorbitant amount of money on my hair. My problem is two-fold; since I was born and raised in New York City and have come to expect more from a salon experience than I've been able to find here in Florida. I don't mean to slight other salons here in Florida, but the reality is that it's just not the same experience. So, having the assistance of talented, professional hair technicians that only Hollywood starlets can afford was merely but a pipe dream of mine... until now. Divine Designs Salon And Spa completely changed my level of expectation across the board! Upon my arrival, I was warmly greeted at the door by the very handsome Frank; who very promptly put me at total ease in their establishment. He offered me a glass of wine while I dutifully filled out the brief client information form. The girls at the reception area were equally as polite and thoughtful. Divine Designs Salon And Spa offers three tiers of stylists: Junior (mentored by the higher-tiered professionals), Divine (which offers advanced experience and skill versus what you'd find anywhere else), and Pro; which quite honestly speaks for itself. Considering the extensive damage previously done to my hair by a salon of equal or higher price, I opted for one of their Pro-tiered technicians. Really, you WILL NOT find a better price ANYWHERE ELSE; especially for the quality services they provide. Trust me; I've already done my homework... After just a few moments after my arrival, my hair technician [Marsha] came to greet me in the reception area and escorted me back to her workspace area. The cutting area was a very intimate experience, as there were no rows of stations that you normally see in salons, and no other clients gawking at you through wall-to-wall mirrors. I truly can't say this enough; the experience was completely top-shelf, as are their other product and service offerings. I walked in with chemically-burned shoulder-length hair, and was prepared for the realistic necessity to have the dead hair cut away to reveal my naturally soft-textured light-brown hair to start over with, again. Marsha really listened to my concerns and took serious note as to how I envision my hairstyle once it grows back out to shoulder-length. She understood that, more important to me than length, was my desperate need of a healthy, vibrant head of hair. Lo and behold, the result was an adorable short cut and style; flattering my face, and feeling like a new woman! I really cannot find the words to describe my complete satisfaction with Divine Designs Salon And Spa. I really do hope my review helps other girls in the Brandon/Tampa FL area live out their "Xanadu Hair Experience" as I have, with Divine Designs Salon And Spa. If you're dreading your next "Russian Roulette" hair appointment at your latest "this-is-as-close-to-satisfied-with-my-hair-appointment-as-I-will-probably-ever-come" salon shop, but fantasizing about walking out of a salon on cloud nine, time and time again; this is your place!
I am a long time client to Tessani, and just to clear things up, they do not get paid if and when a car gets towed. If y'all can't read the signs then y'all don't deserve to have a car!! They did this because their lot was getting trashed. If you are one of their clients and want to park there and go somewhere else first, you have to go inside and let the staff know or you will be towed. If you do get towed to call the tow company, not Tessani. And don't come in there all mad blaming them for your stupidity. I like to enjoy getting my hair done, and without annoying strangers walking in and raising hell about the parking. Bottom line, their clients are super important to them and every time I go to get my hair done, you walk in and the place is alive with good music and excellent company. For those of you who want to bash the place, you have no idea what you're talking about. In a nutshell, Tessani Parking is exclusively for employees, especially Clients. So STOP THE MADNESS AND PARK LEGALLY!! GET OVER IT!!!!
I've been letting my hair grow out from an "extremely" short cut. I went to Loves Hair Salon just to pick up shampoo and met Anthony. Anthony is the best stylist I have ever had touch my hair. I told him what I wanted and he gave me exactly that. I just went yesterday for my 2nd cut and absolutely 'every" person that saw me today complemented me on my haircut. I have had strangers and even one woman who could barely speak English tell me how great my hair looks. I've paid as much as $65 for a trim. Anthony beats all of them and the cost for my cut was $22.00. In these economic times, it's great to find someone who makes you look great, feel great, and it doesn't cost a fortune. You won't understand until you try it - trust me - what do you have to lose and it's not a huge investment to find out what you've missing. Please go - tell them Kathy sent you.
I had to get a last minute dye job done and I'm new to the area. I looked around online and saw good reviews for this place. I called the salon and they were able to fit me in after only an hour. I was greeted with warm smiles and everyone there treated me great! I had Malissa as a stylist and I loved her!! I'm a natural brunette who wanted to go red and I'm not too picky about letting people pick my color (within reason, of course) so she told me what she thought would look good on me... To my delight- it was amazing. It was exactly what I wanted and I didn't even know it! She's great at picking colors for those who aren't entirely sure what they want! I'll definitely be going back to her again!
I've been with patty for about a decade! she's always one step ahead of me knowing when to give me the lastest and greatest. I hated it for her when she had to close her own salon "secrets" do to a devastating vandelization, but i am sooo happy for her here at "hair assassins" she is happy and feels at home, the staff is fun and friendly and has the same great energy her salon had.patty spends time with you getting to know you and your hair, i have always recomended her to friends and family because she is the only stylist i've ever had that really listened to me and my needs and she never suggests services that you don't need. She's my girl, but i'll share!
"I am writing to express my delight over what happened to me after I got wrapped! First of all, I lost over twenty one inches after two wraps, which I, of course, enjoyed very much. I have dieted and exercised and tried just about everything to lose weight and inches, and nothing has worked as fast or dramatically as the body wrap. I want to thank you for the noticeable inch loss.The most significant loss was in my face and I have not gained it back. I was really happy about the loss in my waist and my legs and the "lift" on my buttocks I will continue to get wrapped, and will spread the good . Thanks again." - C. O.

I'll be going back to this place from now on!! the owner Jess is super sweet and Michelle did a awesome job on my hair, I'm very picky when it comes to people messing with my hair but i have no complaints whats so ever about the color Michelle put in my hair,. she was very friendly and explained all steps of what she was doing. even gave me some tips on how to take care of my hair afterwards. Very nice salon and love the staff and look of the place. I'll be recommending this place to all my friends!!
Whitney has been doing my color for over 5 years. I recently moved to LA and still fly back to Brandon to have her do my hair, she is THAT good that i can not go to anyone else. I honestly can't say enough good things about her, she make my blond hair perfect with highlights/lowlights and I never have that orange/brassy look that every other colorist does. She doesn't damage my hair and really listens to what i want to do with it. Go to her and find out for yourself, she is amazing with color.
LW Studios is AMAZING! If you want your one stop shop to feeling FABULOUS, then this is the place for you! Laurie Weber (the owner) has been doing my hair for many years and I have been happy with every single cut & color. She is talented, professional, and an all around good hearted person. Leslie does incredable massages and Pat does perfect eyebrow grooming! Those are just the services I have encountered but LW Studios has so much more to offer. I would HIGHLY recommend this place!
