My experience at this salon I have to say is was a very satisfying experience. Young, the owner personally assured that. She was very friendly and professional. As far as the overall salon, it is very clean and spacious, I couldn't say anything bad about it. My girlfriend and I went there to have her hair straightened, and she wanted to have a Japanese style straightening. You don't have to take my word for it because it wasn't my hair that was worked on but let me tell you, after the entire procedure was done, my girlfriend couldn't stop looking at hair and repeating over and over on how good it was done and how straight and soft her hair was. I too got a hair cut there on the same day, which was also done by Young and I was very satisfied with the result. I'm very particular about my hair, I have a constant barber who regularly cuts my hair but when he is not available, i usually bring a photo of myself on how i want my hair to look like. Young on the other hand, cut my hair exactly how I wanted with just a description that i gave her. She was very open to my request, which i found to be comforting. With that being said, this is the reason why i'm writing this review because I want everybody to know about this place. Try this salon out, I'm pretty sure you will not be disappointed. Young said they do everything, from head to toe and even wedding. Oh, one more thing, Young said she guarantees her work. My girlfriend's straightening procedure is suppose to last for about a year, and Young said if it curls up before that time, she will fix it. But so far she said the women who had it done has not had any complaints about it, we thought that was big plus, considering the procedure cost $300. Will i think this review is already long. I hope whoever reads this and is looking for a good, clean and friendly salon they will consider Young Hair design. See and try it for yourself, like i said, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Young and thank you everyone who will read this, I hope it will help you, one way or another.

I grew up in Orlando, so I can tell you first-hand that finding a great hairstylist is like looking through a haystack trying to find a needle. By the time I found Joseph, my hair was over-processed, orange, and completely damaged and dull looking. He managed to turn it all around. I am half Moroccan, half American, and my hair is thin but a lot of it, frizzy with no defined curls. He knows how to work with my hair! No stylist can tame my hair like he can. i receive compliments daily about how healthy my hair looks, and how beautiful the color is. Joseph has a gift. He is able to look at you and determine which color will match your complexion, all while working with you to design your hair around the style you want as well. He is also HONEST. He will tell you the truth about the state of your hair, such as if it is too damaged to have anything completed at once. He doesn't waste your time or your money. If you read any negative reviews, that is exactly where those are stemming from. We are so accustomed to walking into a salon and receiving service no matter the condition of our hair. And then we wonder why our hair is in a mess in the first place. Go to him. This man is a hair GURU. Im thankful to say i have finally found a hair stylist i can stick with. 2 years of doing my hair now!
I think this salon is blessed with some real talented stylist. I live in Nashville and come in every couple of months for a week to visit family so I am fine with whoever is available on the day that is best for me. Holly and Matthew are both level 3 stylist. He is younger and has climbed from level 1 to 3 pretty quickly. The first time I saw him his price was 25.00 and now his cuts are $65.00. A little too much for me. Holly has been a level three longer and is more experienced. She was more in tune with what I liked and was describing to her. Her personality is more light and fun too. I also used Josh once he is a level one so I was absolutely stunned when I was charged $50.00 for the cut. Seems a bit high when a level one cut was about half of that a year ago. I will say he took his time though, he paid attention and he listened well to what I wanted and I left with a hair cut I liked very much (except for the price). Josh and Holly have been my favorite hair cuts. An acquaintance of mine uses the owner Scott and can't say enough about how wonderful his cuts are. All in all there is some genuine artistic talent here, I just hope they slow down on raising the prices any further in the near future. Ann T.
My name is Simone. I visited Hot Hair Studio for the first time on March 20th and was greeted by courteous, professional staff. In addition to their superb customer service, hair tech, Lisa, performed an awesome job on my hair with a thorough wash, deep conditioning, blow dry, and perfect trim. It's been five days now and I'm amazed that my hair style has lasted this long. What I also enjoyed about this salon is the fact that they don't overbook like most salons do and that was very important to me. They also offer an array of other hair services, waxing, and facial treatments. They are conveniently located near the Millenia Mall in the Northbridge Shopping Center which is within walking distance from my home. I will be returning on a consistent basis to get my hair done and experience some of their other services soon. I simply could not continue through the rest of the week without giving them a review; for so many times we as consumers bring forth our complaints, but businesses should also receive words of compliments when due. "HOT HAIR, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! The quietest person who visits your salon could have a whole lot to say." :) Simone

I WAS SO IMPRESSED I HAPPENED TO CALL AND SEE IF YOU GUYS WERE HIRING FOR FRONT DESK. IM UNSURE OF WHO ANSWERED THE PHONE BUT THEY TOLD ME YEAH COME ON IN. OF COURSE I TOOK MY CHANCES AND CAME IN THE NEXT DAY. ALTHOUGH I WAS DRIVING FOR ABOUT 1 HOUR IN COMMODITY CIRCLE BECAUSE I COULDN'T FIND IT IT WAS ALL WELL WORTH IT. WHEN I WALKED INTO AFFINITY HAIR SALON I FELT THE LOVE ONCE I OPENED THE DOOR. THEY MADE IT FEEL WARM, FUN, RELAXED, AND ALL ABOUT THE CUSTOMERS. ITS NOT YOUR AVERAGE SALON I BELIEVE ITS JUST SO FABULOUS. OF COURSE I HOPE THEY HIRE ME SO I CAN JOIN THE TEAM, FAMILY, AND FUN, BUT IF THEY CHOOSE I DONT QUALIFY ITS ALL WELL WORTH IT. I GOT TO SEE WHAT AFFINITY WAS ALL ABOUT, HOW THEY WORK, AND JUST THE OUTSTANDING JOB AND WORK THEY PUT INTO THEIR SALON AND CUSTOMERS. IT IS SOMETHING I WISH I COULD TELL THE WHOLE FLORIDA PEOPLE ABOUT AND RECOMMEND THEM TO GO THEIR. I LOVE IT..I LOVE IT..I LOVE IT.
My girlfriend and I spend most of the year apart and so we decided to spend one day of our time together celebrating Valentine's Day as a part of that we decided to get our hair done. They were very accommodating with the reservation and even a reschedule. When we arrived our stylist Stephen greeted us and made us very comfortable on our visit. He was very knowledgeable on the hair coloring, style, chemistry, and had an awesome personality. My girlfriend came prepared with exactly what she wanted while I was going in with an open mind. Stephen did a wonderful job helping us pick the colors that we wanted. In the end my girlfriend got exactly the color and style she wanted. I received the color I wanted and a new style, which I loved. We get complimented on it wherever we go Stephen even took the time to show me how to style it at home. This was the best way to start our lovely day together.
Shine Salon has won many accolades for being the best salon in Orlando. There is no doubt that they deserve it! Although Tony is my hairdresser (he gives the best shampoo!!), I would not have any problem seeing Shane or Seth for any of my hair care needs. These guys know what they're doing and do it beautifully! BE WARNED: This is NOT the uppity salon experience. There is NO hostess to greet you (saves you money!!) and the decor is very eclectic (and changes frequently with their moods!!) Feel free to bring a bottle of whatever adult libations you prefer (bring enough to share!!) and sit back and enjoy the show. They are crazy, funny, a bit offensive (but in a good way) and you will leave feeling relaxed, refreshed, and BEAUTIFUL!! The prices are amazingly low in comparison to the quality you will receive. Try it; you will not regret it!!
I was looking for a hair salon in Orlando, and came across Affinity. I watched the video and read the reviews. The video was short and sweet and all the reviews were good. So, I called on Friday, late afternoon and they squeezed me in the next day. I am a very picky person when it comes to getting my haircut, so I was a little skeptical. But, Affinity lived up to every expectation. They were so nice, very professional and everyone there just makes you feel so welcome. Amanda cut my hair, and did a PHENOMENAL job!!! We talked about what look I was looking for and if it would work with my hair type, etc. She is a great stylist! Not to mention, they offered the 50% off for first time customers, and their Paul Mitchell products are very affordable. I would reccomend Affinity Hair Salon to anyone!!!
OK, so this is not your upscale salon ladies, but they do know what they are doing! At least in the hair end of things....Ask Kathy the owner if you want an expert opinion on who to have do your doo. She will be happy to advise which stylist would be the best one suited for your experience. After all, she wants you to be happy and come back. Sure, it's not the classiest place, and it does need a little renovation, but what place these days couldn't use a little money dropped back into it and who can't afford it??? But for a little shop that has been in business for a whole lot of years, there is a reason it has survived, repeat business, so give 'em a try if your a new client, they are worth it! 5 stars for effort 3 1/2 stars for atmosphere so brings in a total of 4 stars!
Affinity salon is great. I can be picky at times. I came in as a walkin and they took me promptly to the colorist and stylist. The colorist was Brit and the stylist was Alex. Those two know what they are doing and did a great job. Brit picked a color that would go with my skintone and make my eyes stand out. I picked a style out of a magazine and asked Alex what she thought it would look on me. She thought it would look good and styled it exactly from the magazine. It came out beautifully. The Affinity I went to is right next to the Florida Mall in Orlando. Prices are kinda high but if you can afford it, its worth getting a great style and color. All the folks that work there were very polite and hospitable. Make you feel right at home.
