It is a cliche, men or women who go on and on about how difficult it was to find a salon and stylist who understood their hair, and had the skills to give them great cuts/color/style.
And it is true. Every time I have moved I have gone through some version of hair stylist purgatory, sometimes worse, until I eventually found stylist heaven.
Gustavo Briand is heaven to me. So when I moved this time, from downtown MIA to the suburbs I decided it is worth driving 30 miles each way to get my hair cut. And I am not alone, on a recent day I run into a female customer who had endured 2+ hrs of peak season traffic to get to GB from Fort Lauderdale.
The salon's location is great. Easy access from all directions on South Beach. Parking is easy and the space around it is open and airy owing to the park and bay across the street. But what's better yet, the entire team is warm, professional and friendly, from owner Gustavo, stylists Christian, Patricia, to Dragana at the front desk.
I highly recommend Gustavo Briand Studio.

Honestly I have been going to cristian for 3 years for color, cut, and blow-dry and not ONCE has anything you are claiming happen to me. I'm assuming your hair was already damaged and now your just looking to blame someone, which feels ridiculous. I wouldn't stand up for just anyone, but I will for him bc he is hands down the best at what he does. Maybe you should give him another chance, or just accept that your hair is damaged. For Patricia I have seen her do some of the most stunning cuts I have seen .... So not sure where u are coming from so get a life and stop putting some of the best in the business down

I went to this salon based on the reviews alone. I should have known better after arriving and no clients were there just around new year. However, I had my color done with Christian and the cut with Patricia. I told Christian I wanted my highlights touched up and overall my hair to look brighter. He, I guess bleached not only the roots but also very much the entire lenght. The color looked good at first but my hair is very dameged. He left it on too long or shouldn't have done for the entire length. Now it looks very damaged and it is braking when I brush it. Horrible. I told Patricia I wanted long layers and not to loose my lenght. I ended up with no layers and she did cut the length too much.

Today I had my hair done by Patricia and Christian. Patricia did the cut and Christian did the color. I must say they both did an awesome job! It is really hard to find good people to do your hair but this salon has never failed me. Gustavo usually does my hair, but he is out of town...so I fell into the hands of these two and I do not regret it! They are also really nice, which is a bonus!

Hands down!!! Amazingggg! The best. Also amazing color and the extension master! Really, I've tried salons all over Miami Beach and the Brickell area and ever since I met Cris over a year ago, Ive been coming twice a week, every week. Whether you need an easy blow-dry to get you through the work week, a fancy one for a big night out, a corrective dye job because somewhere else turned your hair a hideous shade of orange or extensions to make you look and feel sexy, Cristian is your man and Gustavo Briand is the place.

So...I posted a review in October when I went to that salon and got my hair destroyed by Christian. I came out with hair looking green/ grayish and damaged to such an extent that I had to cut it three times since then in order to look kind of normal.
After 5 months of not having heard from anyone, even though I sent an email complaining and requesting a refund ($350 + $40 tip- kind of steep to have something so horrible done to me), the owner finally called me.
It was on a Monday morning, two weeks ago. He told me he was out of the country until now (for 5 months? No wonder his employees are doing such a poor job). he apologized and told me he only just now learned about the disaster that happened to me.
He told me that if I wanted, I could come try to have him work on my hair...
I told him, there was no way I would ever set foot again in his salon, that what Christian did to my hair was a disgrace, that I had been going to another hairdresser for the last five months trying to fix my hair (it finally looks good, but it took me hundreds of dollars to get there- I have beautiful, long wavy blond hair...well, at least I use to have...still working on getting it back).
Anyway...I told him that I would appreciate a refund instead of going back to his salon....he told me he would go to his business and check my invoice, and he told me I would ""FOR SURE"" hear back from him before the end of the week.
Well...it's been two weeks, no news, no offer to give me my money back...
So again, avoid this place at all cost!!!
Horrible service, horrible customer service, and I am sure that all the raving reviews are FAKE!!! Do not waste your time and money.

I did my hair with all three: Patricia, Cristian and Gustavo. I am very hard to please. All three have ""wowed"" me. Patricia has a keen eye for precision and symmetry, and her haircuts are classy and well-groomed. Cristian is the Michelangelo of colorists. Before your color, he will study your hair together with your complexion to ensure your color looks natural. Gustavo has a gift for giving your hair a modern personality. He genuinely loves the clients and wants to see them happy.
I browsed through the (very rare) negative reviews and saw two trends: bad haircut/color and price. The former stems from bad communication from clients who didn't express what they wanted. As for price, the salon posts its prices on the website, so price should be no surprise.
The salon staff, above all, is warm, down-to-earth and welcoming. You will leave the salon looking and feeling beautiful.

We know that most people employed in salons do not know how to cut hair. But this guy Gustavo is amazing! He is gifted and intuitive and really knows his stuff! The salon is not the loud phony typical salon, and tastefully done for a small space. I would highly recommend!

I came to Miami for a vacation and was looking to have my hair cut & colored while on my trip. I used Citysearch to find Gustavo Briand, & I'm so glad that I did! I'm very picky about my hair, & I've had my fair share of amazing & horrible haircuts, in both small towns & large cities all over the U.S. Gustavo gave me one of the best haircuts & colors that I've ever had. I also had a wonderful experience while in the salon - Gustavo & his staff made me so comfortable, & were so professional. I'm looking forward to going back the next time I'm in Miami! Highly recommended.
