Make your appt now. Research & reviews led me to Guys & Dolls; no regrets. 1st appt w/ Dawn who saved my hair. Came in w/ a rainbow of colors that Willy Wonka would've rejected. 1 question & she knew (& I had to admit) that cutting my hair off was a request of desperation. Great color correction & I resumed the love affair w/ my hair. 2nd appt w/ Alethea. Have always only stayed w/ 1 professional, but with only 1 visit under the belt decided to go for it. Great highlights! Another step closer to the color of once upon a time. Must make my 3rd appt, but couldn't before praising this salon & the stylists. Will also be making simultaneous appts w/ Dawn & Alethea for my little boys.
I wanted to try out a keratin treatment due to my long hair getting easily knotted and frizzy from the hot humid weather. I chose this salon and am really glad i did. My hair is smooth and straight and the knots/tangles are gone. No more frizzyness either. I went to bed and didn't wake up with a tangled mess on my head. I'm very happy I got the treatment and got lucky by choosing this salon. The stylist was Alethea. They also gave me a sweet deal on the keratin shampoo/conditioner.
I have to say they did a great job cutting my hair. The staff is very friendly and professional. I recommend them to all my friend and family. I wish them best in everything.
From Esperanza & Franck (our stylist,
We couldn't be more please, friendly & courteous service from the entire staff, everyone we crossed eyes with, had a smile for us.
Alethea listened to our expectation and did a perfect job on each of us, pretty amazing for a first time!
The only argument my wife & i have, is, which one of us is going to be Alethea's stalker ;-) because she's as gorgeous as she is professional...:-)
Seriously, we HIGHLY recommend Guys & Dolls, we have found our new stylist.

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%.
great salon. a friend of mine recommended francisco and i went after going to my previous hair stylist in another state for over 20 years......francisco was really very professional and spent a great deal of time with me....after i left the salon and went home and washed my hair several days later, i realized it was not cut short enough--i hesitated calling back but i did and i was really very very pleased with the response....i was told to come back in and he would cut it shorter until i felt it was just right....he spent an additional 45 minutes cutting my hair....it looks wonderful...it is hard to describe to a hair stylist how to cut your hair for the first time and he really was great in terms of his professionalism and getting it right by me....i high recommend him and his salon.....
They're GGRRRREATT!. I'm a guy with very simple hair cutting needs, but I also hate SuperCuts and all those other places, so I opted to go with Francisco based on a recommendation a couple of years ago. I've been going to him ever since, and won't go anywhere else. With most places, if you have a receding hairline or are going bald at ALL, the barber or stylist tries to cover it up or mask it for you, and 99% of the time in not a good way. I don't really care that I've got a bit of hair loss going on, as long as it looks good. Francisco understood exactly what I meant when I said this, and makes my head look as best as it can. The atmosphere of the shop is wicked laid back, and the music is always pretty good. I'm simple and easy and am really nervous at stylists and barbers and places like this, but this place puts me at ease more so than others. My girlfriend, on the other hand, has a head of hair like Robert Plant…. curly, long, golden blond, and gorgeous. She has tried Francisco, Michel, Dawn, and Tory and she tells me that she does not have a favorite. When she calls for an appointment, all she cares about is making the time work BECAUSE it doesn’t matter who does her hair. What does that tell you about the staff at Guys & Dolls? It tells me that the entire staff rocks. My hat’s off to Francisco & Jonathan for getting such a talented crew together and keeping them. In all my years with Francisco, I have never seen one of the stylists leave – what does that tell you about Guys & Dolls? Must be a pretty damn good place to work – it sure is a damn good salon to go to.
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!
Edgy, Funky, Hip If You So Desire. My entire life I like an edgy look. The gal who I was going to was not giving my hair the excitement that I wanted. Thinking of someone who has exciting hair brought me to my doctor's office manager and she recommended Guys & Dolls to me. Dawn was booked the day I chose and the owner encouraged me to try another stylist, promising that I will love it. I told Francisco that I wanted an edgy cut and a bright, fun color and shortly thereafter I had a beautiful head of coppery hair with slight accents of blond and red, and an equally brilliant cut to compliment the look. Ecstasy. Exciting. Envigorating. I felt like a canvas that Picasso & Rembrandt had collaborated on. I could not be happier. If you like being a trend-setter instead of a follower... if you want to be noticed (in a good way), and you want your hair to make a statement about your personality, come to this salon. I saw Dawn's client and it was another great job - crimson & black highlights. The staff is tight and they deliver the "goods". If you are thinking about trying Guys & Dolls, R*U*N, dont walk
Best Blonde Highlights I Ever Had. I found this salon while I was searching for Schwarzkopf hair products. I was not even calling for an appointment - I only wanted shampoo, however, I enjoyed speaking with the owner (JT) so much, that when he inadvertently asked me if I was thrilled with my hair color and hair stylist - who I have been with for over 6 years - it made me think...I could NOT honestly answer 'yes'. The last few times I was at my old salon, things were different and my old stylist's work was not up to par. So I figured if Guys & Dolls carry Schwarzkopf products and had such a pleasant, direct, self-assured owner personally answering the phone, I would give them a chance. I checked out the web site and it was great - I got a good feel for who the staff are and what the place was like and decided it was a salon I would enjoy trying, so I booked my appointment (I did have to wait 3 weeks to get a Saturday appointment with Francisco). THE REASON FOR THIS REVIEW: As soon as I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed with the decor of the place - very eclectic and reminded me of home. They were playing SiriusXM Alt Nation (my fav) and I was greeted by JT. The assistant immediately welcomed me and offered me a beverage and I heard Francisco yell "Jessie, get her ready for color". I was given a clean gown to change into and led into the bathroom/changing room - very nice and CLEAN. I did make myself a cup of Barnies coffee and grab a magazine and I was enjoying watching the stylists work. It is so rare these days to see a group work together and get along so well - everyone was friendly and the place just had such a positive vibe going on.. I enjoyed being there and I felt like I was part of something. Needless to say that when all was said & done and the foils were removed and I was rinsed out, my hair was AWESOME - it came out better than I could have hoped for and I felt great. If I had felt this good after walking out of my old salon I would still be a client there - but this only re-affirms my decision to try Guys & Dolls. Had it not been for how direct, courteous, and knowledgeable JT was on my initial phone call this would have never happened - it just goes to show that you never know how things will work out. I recommend Guys & Dolls to all... JT & Francisco run a great shop and it shows in how busy the place is. Just a great place for hair color, highlights, and good coffee and music. And, I received no less than 4 compliments that afternoon while I was out doing errands :-).
Thank you Pam. It was great to meet you, too. The irony is that I just reviewed your invoice and you left WITHOUT ever buying that Schwarzkopf shampoo which you had initially called us about. I am always glad to hear when our clients get complimented on their new look. Happy New Year.
