LOOK NO FURTHER - Here's Your Hair Salon. Guys & Dolls is the ONLY place I will ever trust with my highlights! Dawn & Francisco & Michel aren’t just amazing professional hair stylists and colorists, They have also proven to be a good friends to all those who are lucky enough to experience Guys & Dolls. I found Guys & Dolls through CitySearch a couple of years ago, and over the years I have been lucky enough to try ALL of their stylists and even now that I’ve moved to Tampa, I won’t ever let anyone else touch my hair – they ARE that brilliant, especially for difficult blondes like me! Guys & Dolls does THE BEST work creating multi-dimensional, long-lasting and natural-looking blonde highlights in Fort Lauderdale. In the many years I’ve been in FL, I’ve tried out most of the big-name hair salons imaginable, searching to recreate the healthy, natural-looking blonde of my youth from the bleach-out, sun/salt/chlorine damaged locks my active lifestyle created. With all the places I have tried, I never returned to the same place twice because I never got personal attention, I always paid way too much, and I always left with the same, generic blonde “Do” you seem to see on every soccer mom and street corner in Weston. So, to say I was a little disillusioned by the time I read Guys & Dolls reviews on CitySearch and made an appointment is an understatement. But, I was SO pleasantly surprised with the team at Guys & Dolls! First, they spend A LOT of time with each of their clients. My appointments tend run about 2 hours with rare overlap in appointments. Dawn & Francisco & Michel have never once been late or kept me waiting, or taken calls during our appointments, and I’ve never ever felt rushed. Second, the staff are color specialists. At your first appointment, you'll receive an assessment of the quality of your hair and what sort of cut/color you’re looking for and will offer you advice about how to make that work with the shape of your face/features and your individual coloring/complexion. Then, you'll get advice about what color or combination of colors will work best with your unique skin and eye coloration. (They typically weave in 2-3 different color highlights into my hair, alternating every other appointment between highlights and lowlights.) The result, for me, is that my hair looks healthier than it has in years (despite the damage I inflict upon it!), and I finally have my youthful blonde back. They've done such a tremendous job masking my dishwater blonde/brown locks that I keep receiving compliments on the cut/color – even weeks after my appointments when I think the roots are starting to show. In fact, they do SUCH a tremendous job with my color and cut, that I don’t even really have to come in to see him for touch ups that often – maybe once every 2 months, since the highlights grow out so naturally. (That’s bad for him, but good for my pocketbook!) Lastly, they are just a really decent human beings and a whole lot of fun to talk to during the appointments. You can tell that they have good relationships with everybody at the salon. Also, unlike a lot of other hair stylists out there (and again, I think I’ve seen a lot of the best Fort Lauderdale has to offer!), they seem to really take pride in their profession and in getting to know their clients and helping them be their best selves. The entire team at Guys & Dolls have created such a welcoming, “family” environment, that I look forward to the drive out there and won't be seeing anyone else anytime soon. Thank you, Dawn, Michel, & Francisco!

GREAT 1st IMPRESSION I am new to Fort Lauderdale from Cincinnati and had no one to ask about where to go for my hair color. I did not know any neighbors or anyone at work to ask, so with this being 2012, I went online for information. After a couple of minutes searching, I had narrowed my choices to 2 salons, Guys & Dolls and AFX. For whatever reason, I called AFX first and tried to explain my situation. The guy was very short with me and didnt seem to care - I just figured he did not want to make small talk, so I got to the point and tried to make an appointment. This was on a Tuesday and I was told that the only thing all week was Thursday at 3:45 Although it was not an ideal time for me, I was going to make it work because I needed color desparately. I then asked about pricing and the guy told me flat out "Dont worry about prices honey, we'll work that out once you're here in the chair". That remark was the straw that broke the camels back and I politely ended the conversation. The last thing I wanted was a $300 bill thrown at me after the fact, so I called Guys & Dolls. A guy answered the phone (he was the business owner I found out later) and he couldn't have been nicer. When I told him I would be new to the salon, he just stopped and said "Welcome" in the most inviting and sincere tone of voice. He asked how I found them and he asked me several other questions so he would be sure to give me the proepr amopunt of time and put me with a stylist he felt would be good for me. I told him the length of my hair, my color, what I wanted to do and he never cut me off or rushed me. I felt he genuinely cared about me and my hair and that he wanted to make sure he got it right. He asked if I had any other questions, so I figured let me ask the dreaded questions: price. He could not have been nicer - he told me that a colr touch-up was $50 and that highlights started at $65, with a full head of highlights at $125 for normal length hair. He even went on to tell me about the color line they use. And then he asked me where I would be coming from - he wanted to make sure I would not get lost finding them. Well, that was the icing on the cake and I was thrilled that they could take me the same day. It goes without saying that my visit lived up to my expectations. I was greeted by name when I arrived, offered a beverage, and was told my stylist would be right with me. As I was waiting, I couldnt help but notice the decor of the place - I wasnt sure if I was in my living room, an antique store, or a salon - whatever motif it was, it worked. I ended up getting a full head of highlights, color, and a cut. As I left, I lookd like the person I had wanted to look like my entire life - I was thrilled that Jonathan took some beofre & after photos of me - you would not belive it was the same person except for the same shirt in both shots. I am so hooked on this place and they have me for life... I almost hope I dont have to move again becasue I dont want to find another salon. Would recommend Guys & Dolls 100%.
For the past year I'd been flying back and forth to Atlanta just to get my hair done. I know it's crazy, but I had a hard time finding a local salon I believed could do my hair and extensions properly. Just recently, I started looking again for a salon in my area and came across All Dolled Up. After reviewing their website and reading reviews, I decided to call them. I spoke to Chantal and explained what I was looking for: I wanted to make sure that they would be able to do my hair extensions exactly how my salon in Atlanta does them (braiding technique is very thin and extremely flat so that you can't feel a single track). Chantal suggested that I come in and have a consultation with Patricia (Pat), a senior stylist. My friend came with me to the consultation and we were immediately blown away. We were greeted right away and offered something to drink. Pat was very friendly and knowledgeable, and she was very confident that she would be able to do my hair how I wanted. On Friday, I had my actual first appointment and I am still blown away. My appointment was scheduled for 10AM and Pat started on my hair at 10AM. Bailey offered me donuts, mimosa, juice, etc. I really like how they treat their clients. By the way, I heard that Saturdays is pizza day, and the salon offers pizza to clients. So my next trip to the salon will be on a Saturday :-) At any rate, Pat never took a break while doing my hair. I like the fact that she started my hair and finished my hair. At other salons I've been to, clients are passed around from one person to the next and next, not here. At one point Pat did have to step away and Chantal braided my hair some, and she did a fabulous job too. When it came to do the weaving, Pat is a perfectionist! When Pat was finished, I patted the back of my head and could not feel a single track. No lumps, no bumps, extremely flat. I never would have thought but it turned out better than my salon in ATL. I also forgot to mention that What sets this salon apart from others is their customer service and chill atmosphere. There wasn't "salon gossip," like you may see in other salons. The music was uplifting. I was so relaxed at one point that I think I fell asleep. I read one review somewhere where someone said the salon prices are too high... well, you get what you pay for. I have no problem with their prices and it is worth every penny. The way I see it is if I'm going to pay a lot of money on hair, I want it done right, and they did exactly what I asked for. Their prices don't seem to keep people away either. Pat, Chantal, Bailey, and all the other stylists there are soooo nice and positive. All the clients seemed friendly too. I felt like I was around family, and that's how a good salon is supposed to make you feel.
AN HONEST HAIR SALON - Being happily married for over 30 years, I needed to help my wife with a big problem. She takes very good care of her physical health (i.e. her body) and works full time as a nurse, but she has been depressed lately about her hair. She goes to the same lady for years and years and this last year it seems that the stylist has lost interest in my wife's hair and just cuts her hair straight across the back - the excuse being that with such fine hair, nothing else can be done with it. This has got to the point where my wife is in tears over her hair. Never having gotten involved with her beauty decisions, I felt compelled to do something for her because her birthday was coming up and I wanted her happy. All of my research led me to Guys & Dolls and I went alone on a Thursday night to personally check them out. I was greeted immediatley and was pleasantly surprised to see the place looking exactly like in the pictures on line. I told my tale of woe to the receptionist - which I later found out he was the owner. He told me point blank that he hears this type of story regularly and he could definitley help me out. I wanted to surprise my wife, so we came up with a plan and she was elated when a confirmation email arrived that night to remind her about her appointment the following day. She left home with limp blah hair and returned home with the cutest pixie, full of body and it was perfect for her face. She even made an appointment to go back for color and I dont remember ever seeing her so positive and excited about her hair. And what really made ME pleased was the itnegrity of the salon - I had given the owner the O.K. to do what ever needed to be done with a $200 limit, and the bill was only $55 - I think most other salons would have used up the entire $200 budget, but Guys & Dolls were so honest and proper and treated my wife so right that I am shocked. I can hardly wait to see her after they do her hair color. These internet reviews were accurate and right-on with their assessment of this hair salon. Kudos.
The Best salon in Orlando ...Period... E Geovanni Salon was recommended to me by one of my girlfriends who has been coming to this salon since Elizabeth the owner opened it. I was a little concerned the first time I stopped by to schedule a consultation - young staff, looked not busy but I still scheduled. When I returned and met with Elizabeth, she really knew what she was talking about, she made me feel very confident and I decided to have her do my hair extensions. WOW....I Love my hair! She is truly the best, she is took her time, she placed each piece perfectly (not all crazy like most stylist do), she matched my color spot-on, cut and styled it amazingly. I did tell Elizabeth that I almost did not return because on my first visit I was concerned about the lack of stylist for such a big salon and that most looked so young. She explained that they are opened 7 days a week from 9-9 during the week and untill 6 on the weekends as for the staff looking young she said thats simple we are! She also acknowledged that she has been doing hair for 15 years she has 2 kids but if you ever have the chance to meet her she is absolutely beautiful & does not look like a girl that has 2 kids or been doing hair for so long. She looks 23/25 and again absolutely stunning. I must add that while I was having my hair extension added the salon was rocking and the atmosphere felt alive... I'm so glad that I listened to my girlfriend and did not judge a book by its cover. E Geovanni Salon is my new and favorite salon in Orlando!!!!
Simply The Best. I have been a client at Guys & Dolls for over 3 years and after reading the previous review, I felt compelled to give my opinion. The core staff at Guys & Dolls has remained stable and over the last 2 years they got so busy that they have added several new stylists. I met Rose in May when I got a keratin treatment. I usually see Francisco, but he was booked and Rose was available that day. Rose is a gem! She is easy going, funny, personable, and cares very much about her work. When I had a keratin treatment in New York city last year, I swear it took less than 45 minutes for my thick, curly shoulder-length hair. At Guys & Dolls, Rose did not rush, she was meticulous in her work, and it took her almost 3 hours. The end result: my New York keratin lasted only 6 weeks and my keratin from Rose is 5 months old and still looking great. It is almost funny to read that and I actually asked rose about it on Saturday and she said the lady is a whack job and a #$%$ . I did not need to hear anything more. It made me recall my first visit to Guys & Dolls and I got a full head of highlights. I called Francisco back 2 days later and let him know that is was a bit too light for me and he said No problem, we guarantee our work. Just stop by tomorrow and we will take care of that for you, no charge to you . I recommend Guys & Dolls to everyone and the only thing I ever hear back is Thank You, they were awesome . That is why I keep coming back for over 3 years.
What an incredible salon, from owner to shampoo staff! I was at "desperation point" after a haircut two years ago that virtually made it impossible to make my hair look anything close to styled. I wandered shop to shop, trying to get my hair back into something I could feel good about, with often disastrous results. Stylists talked a good game & I then underwent a series of cuts & colorings, each one, far less than good & when I attempted to speak to the stylist about what I wanted or did or did not like about a cut or color, no one seemed to care much. After asking a stranger where she got her hair done & doing my own on-line research, I called Guys And Dolls & booked an appointment. Life struck & due to a medical problem, had to reschedule the appointment & Jonathan was so kind & understanding, I just knew I might have found the salon of my dreams! Today was the big day & I can't begin to express what wonderful people staff the shop & what an incredible job Francisco did with what had been admittedly a horrendously choppy cut & hair that was long overdue for color. The cut & color are exactly what I wanted, & best of all , this is a salon that stands head & shoulders over most! They have gained both a new client & a huge fan!
Found Guys & Dolls when searching for salons that take spafinders.com gift cards. I verified that they did take spafinders and then proceeded to book an appointment. I told them upfront that I had a $250 gift card and asked if that was enough for color, highlights, and a cut. I was told that it would definitely be enough. My boyfriend reluctantly went with me to Guys & Dolls, and when all was said & done, I had beautiful color, cut with amazing highlights, a mani/pedi that was sheer ecstasy, AND a cleaned-up boyfriend with a great new style and highlights. The entire experience was surreal - the shop was eclectic to say the least - great music & coffee and the cutest greeter named Dexter. Although I went on a Tuesday, the place was rocking - every chair was busy and it was incredible energy throughout the salon. For my boyfriend to get a cut & color spontaneously you had better believe that he was impressed by what he saw going on inside. To be complete, my stylists' name was Ali (a cute, adorable blonde Swede) and Francisco took care of Jeff. As Arnold once said, I'll be back!
I have a full head of net sow-in extensions. I went in for a relaxer touch-up, shampoo, blow dry and style. The stylist was friendly and courteous. She actually took the time to base my scalp. I told her that certain parts of my hair were resistant to perm and she focused on those areas. I was pleased with how well the perm took. She could have shampooed my hair a little better. The only turn off i had was that the stylist was using a cheap blowdryer. It was not getting hot enough and one of the other stylists had to offer to finish the blow dry. At the end, I was pleased for the most part with the way she styled it overall. I just wish that she flat-ironed it a little better, but she was using a cheap flat iron... :( This salon is definitely one of the more professional ones: modern and clean. They sat me down and gave me a consultation, where they recommended products for my hair type (don't worry, they didn't try and push me to buy anything). They also offered beverages. This was a nice touch! .....
