It has now been over 4 years since arriving in Orlando and trying to find a good hair stylist. I found Joseph on the internet and have been his client since. You do not need anyone else after visiting Joseph. I have always been very picky over who does my hair as it it very thick and strong. Joseph has ALWAYS done a great job on my color, cutting and styling. He always listens before suggesting and spends a lot of time with you getting the job done with amazing results. This time with him I made a big change in color, which Joseph had suggested a while ago. I was not disappointed and love it. If you can get my husband to make great comments on my hair after a visit to Joseph you cannot go wrong. As you can see I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JOSEPH KELLNER, he will not disappoint.

Jospeh is thee best hairdresser I have ever been to. I have visited him twice for color and cut, and I have been extremely happy with his service both times. He delivers a truly personal service, listening to your requirements and is able to interpret what you want and produce a terrific end result. If you are tired of leaving hairdressers frustrated, give Joseph a try. You won't be disappointed.

First of all Joseph meets and exceeds my needs with appointment times... His new location fits him well! You have to see it!! Joseph has a phenomenal memory and takes a genuine concern to you as a person, not just another person in his chair. I used to think of getting ideas for my hair through magazines… After my first visit with him I knew I didn’t have to bother. It has been well over 4 years that I have know Joseph and watching him amazes more and more every time. I can’t thank you enough for how great you make me feel and how great my hair looks…

I had black hair and I wanted to go to a dark choc brown and made the mistake of allowing a girlfriend who's hair always looks great and seems to do a good job on other peoples hair attempt to lighten my hair.. well it was ended in a mess where I had like 4 or 5 different crazy bright oranges and reds in my black and brown hair.. I looked a crazy !!! I was soo upset , and felt gross with my hair. I was desperate and did not want her ""trying to fix it"" So I searched google for a color expert and this was the first site I seen and started reading about This guy. Checked out his website the whole 9.. seemed like he was the one to fix my hair from hell.. Best decision I think I made ever for my hair!!! Not only did he Fix my hair that looks amazing now he also opened my eyes to the beauty industry and the REAL TRUTH! He truly is a hair Genuis & he will be the only person allowed to ever work in my hair.... He is funny & personalble! I came in down and I left feeling amazing & looking amazing as you should!!!

This is the second time I've gotten my hair cut and colored by Joseph. I am really picky and I've also had some really bad experiences getting my hair colored by other people. I found him online because of his website and his great reviews on city search. Since he was voted ""Best Colorist"" in Orlando, I thought I couldn't go wrong, and I gave him a try.
I was more than happy with the results! I've gotten my hair colored by so many people in Orlando, but the reason I came back to him was I loved the color he gave me. I am usually nervous waiting for the results, but I completely trusted him to make me gorgeous! The highlights looked natural, and the color was EXACTLY what I wanted. I've looked through the photos of my various hair colors, and the best hair color I've ever had was done by him! He really knows how to get the look that fits your skin color and brings out your eyes. He also has given me the best cut - the layers are perfect and make my hair bouncy and frame my face nicely.
On a side note, he has a fun personality, and is easy to talk to, which is a bonus, when you're in the chair for so long.

Joseph is supremely talented. I've lived in different parts of the world - Europe, US – so my experience with stylists has been incredibly varied. From obscenely expensive high-end salons in London to quaint small-town stylists in rural Scotland, Joseph has been the best, period. To be honest, I've never been enthusiastic enough about a stylist to write a review (I found Joseph through these reviews, so I figured I'd now write my own...).
It goes far beyond the fact that he's incredibly meticulous and has a fantastic eye for detail. He's a true professional who takes immense pride in his work. Joseph's cuts and color work get better & better....they build on each other in a steady progression, as if he's carefully honing his work with every visit. He spends plenty of time discussing what you want, every time, and offers insightful suggestions that hadn’t even crossed your mind. Oh, and he’s a genuinely cool and interesting cat to boot...a few of his stories are pretty wild.
After my first visit or two, I started to get approving remarks from friends & family. Even someone who had always said how over-processed my hair looked mentioned with no prompting that she really liked the condition, cut and color. When I said, “Ah…but haven’t you always thought my hair lacked condition?”, she replied, “Well, but this is different - now you’re obviously working with someone who knows exactly what he's doing!”.
In other words, Joseph’s work speaks for itself.

I arrived in Joseph's chair with hair badly burnt and damaged by another claiming to be a ""Master Stylist"". He immediately put me at ease with the extent of his knowledge. He was honest with me that there was no immediate solution, and explained to me the steps he would take to help expedite the repair process. Joseph worked with my hair over several visits to bring it back to its former glory. He is a TRUE Master in every sense of the word.
I strongly recommend Joseph Kellner. If you’re tired of over-priced salons and trendy no-service shops that up-charge and push product the moment you step in the door, give Joseph a call. His honest and fair approach is a refreshing change.

My hair looks and feels incredible after my visit to Joseph. He immediately earned my trust and gave really frank and helpful advise about my coloring. Finally he created a color and cut that is perfect for me. My hair is ""Supermodel Hair"" thanks to Joseph.

Just stop looking, Joseph is it! ... A fantastic hair colorist is so hard to find. I seriously spent years searching and had to endure plenty of damaged dry fried hair.... It was so frustrating. But when I found Joseph 6 years ago, my search was over. I've been seeing him since and getting gorgeous hair color every time. Joseph not only makes my hair look natural and rich, he's also concerned with it's health and considers it each time, making sure it stays shiny and strong.
Trust Joseph to tell you like it is, to take great care of your hair and for you to get amazing results. He's such a wonderful, unique and skilled hairdresser... and friend!

I love my hair... The cut... The color... I love them both! Joseph is good about taking the time to fully understand what I'm looking to do. He's very generous with his advice and will tell me if he honestly doesn't think something will work. He extends his services to always recommend what I should do with my makeup to keep up with the latest trends but also keep a classic look.
Aside from being a great stylist and hairdresser... Joseph is always flexible with his schedule. He's accommodated me and my busy schedule more than once... Actually each time. I am grateful he came highly recommended from a friend... I'll definitely pay it forward.

So happy i found Joseph!
I just moved 6 months ago from Boston MA and was so worried about finding the perfect hair colorist. I moved to Windermere Florida and I am picky!
My hair has never looked better! Perfect shades of blonde, healthy and able to grow longer! His products are amazing too! I would highly recommend him!
Thank you Joseph!

Joseph really cares about what you want and seeks to obtain your vision. He is talented and knowledgeable in this industry. Really knows his hair color, and is an artist. He takes my very dark hair, that is thin and makes it very blonde, and worked with the damage I came in with originally, and re-creates a healthy look.
He is quiet and private, and stays focused on business, while having friendly personal conversation. He concentrates on his task. He has great passion for his career.
He loves beauty and beautiful women, and seeks to make you into a princess and enhance the beauty he sees in you! i highly recommend Joseph, he was voted #1 colorist in Orlando.

Joseph is a master colorist. And he truly cares about his clients. I've been going to him for over 5 years and he always always does a beautiful job on my hair, making it look so natural and healthy. And I love how Joseph is constantly learning more about his craft -- and teaching others too! ... I left Orlando for 5 months and I was totally lost without Joseph. I spent even more money at an expensive salon in New Orleans and walked away unhappy and with damaged hair. Now that I'm back in town for good, I'm never leaving him! :)

I first discovered Joseph, 9 years ago after I had my blond hair turned blaw brown and fried at another salon. My hair is very fine and I was sure he'd have to cut it almost entirely off to restore it. When I walked into this high end salon, I spoke with the manager who said you need to see Joseph. Joseph is the best.
I returned for my appointment with Joseph and I was amazed that he was able to restore my blond and recondition the hair so that it wasn't even damaged. I didn't even have to cut it! I was truly impressed.
I can honestly say, that in all the years I've been having my hair highlighted/colored there has NEVER been another hair colorist who has CONSISTENTLY done a fabulous job every time. (I have gone to the best high end salons in Boston, etc) The color he does is beautiful and even my BABY FINE hair doesn't get damaged. I wear it long too.
Since my first visit, I have followed Joseph to every salon he has been at. I am a very happy, real customer who can't say enough about Joseph.
Thank you, Joseph!

I'd like to start off by saying how OBVIOUS it is that all the 5 star reviews on this site are written by Joseph Kellner himself. They are ALL written the exact same way, by people with only ONE review who have NO cons on their experience. Anyone who has had their hair done by this man know there are plenty of cons!
Now onto my experience at the ""Joseph Kellner Salon,"" which might I add, does not exist; he rents a chair in a hair salon and only comes in for his appointments.
My appointment was at 1pm; as I was walking to the salon from my car at 1:02pm I received a phone call from Joseph asking if I was lost. He sits me down in his chair and I tell him that I would like to dye my dark hair blonde, something I've done several times in the past. The ""Top Colorist in Orlando"" says he can't do that, so I just let him cut my hair. I told him three times I was growing out my bangs and not to cut them, but it was obvious to me that he wanted to. While he is cutting my hair he asks me to close my eyes because he did not want to get some product in my eyes. THEN HE PROCEEDED TO CUT MY BANGS WHILE MY EYES WERE CLOSED! While he blow dried my hair, he positioned my head in several different ways. Whenever I slightly moved my head, he would turn the blow dryer off , stomp his feet, and say ""Are you going to sit still now?"" I had asked prior to my appointment how much the cut was going to cost; it was supposed to be $50, but he says it is $75. I ask why and he tells me he put a special treatment in my hair, which was really just a simple pomade that I did not ask for; I tell him I will not pay for that. I give him a $100 bill to pay with, which was all that I had on me. He then tells me he does not have change, and to put it on a credit card. I explain to him that I do not have a credit card, and to ask someone else in the salon for change. He refuses and tells me to go to the gas station to get change! I go and they do not have change. When I tell him, he insists that I use a credit card even though I told him I do not have one. He rudely says he doesn't understand how I could not have a credit card. I tell him I don't understand how you could come to work knowing you do not have change. Finally, I had to ask customers in the salon if they had change.
This man is extremely rude, unprofessional, and just plain AWFUL. I could have gone to Supercuts and received the same or better cut, without being treated so horribly. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES GO TO JOSEPH KELLNER.

I made an appointment as a new client early in the week for friday 3pm and I was working over night at a hospital and I had not checked my voicemail for 30+hours. I had a vm from Joseph saying that I need to call him and confirm my appt or else he will take me off the book. So early Friday morning I call back to let him know that I was still planning on coming and as soon as I said my name he said "" sorry I took you off"" and HUNG UP! I call again and I explain the situation and he says ""THATS TOO BAD"" and HANGS UP ON MY FACE AGAIN!!!!
Im glad this happened prior to getting my hair done by him. He was VERY UNPROFESSIONAL and RUDE. I have been to many salons and never have I been treated in such a way. I would rather go to ANY SALON but this one!

I honestly thought that I was in a ""candid camera"" set-up, I kept looking around for the camera, and kept thinking, this couldn't be so over the top bad? This is some kind of candid camera stunt. But in fact it was that bad, by far t he worse experience I've ever had.
The sad fact is that this guy thinks he is the official hairstylist for Hollywood movie stars, I've seen clowns with better hair and make up than what this guy does, it's ridiculous.
Reading the ""positive"" reviews, they'RE more fake than a $3 dollar bill. This guy obviously wrote them up or paid people to do it for him. This is why these review sites aren't very reliable. One business owner can write up 30 fake reviews with 5 stars and people who don't read them fall for it.
