Would highly recommend this salon and it's staff. Chadwick has been cutting my hair for years and my hair has never looked better. Never knew how to properly care for my hair before Ouidad and Chadwick.

Finally I will be able to get my curls back thanks to Chadwick. What a wonderful first time experience. Very professional yet personable. Deep treat is a must if you have not tried it, it's a curl saver. Can't wait to go back.

Had my first haircut today with Chadwick and am very happy with the results. My hair was long, shapeless and unruly and I was looking for a total change. Got a shoulder length cut with a beautiful shape that gave nice volume to my hair. Loved the salon and staff and will definitely go back. Worth the drive from Miami!

This was my first Ouidad Style cut and I love it! I had been cutting my curls in the Deva cut way and the difference is huge. My curls feel soft and flowing. Even my boyfriend noticed right away and he likes it too. Sondriel did a wonderful job!

I have been getting my hair cut in the NY salon for 7 years while living in South Florida. I recently tried Chadwick and I have found my new salon. He took his time to get to know my daily routine and products that I have been using by Ouidad. He suggested a few changes that I have never been told before and I am so happy with my hair. The cut was perfect. He listened to the length and shape that I wanted and he gave me exactly what we discussed. He suggested a deep conditioning treatment which was like like nothing I have ever gotten before. I highly recommend that as well. The salon and staff were also top notch from the moment I walked in to the time that I left. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel very welcomed. I couldn't be happier with Chadwick and his amazing team!!!!!

I have been dying to come to Ouidad forever since their specialty is curly hair. I procrastinated getting an appointment and waited till the last minute. I basically kicked myself in the behind when I finally attempted to make an appointment online and there was no availability for the next day. I wanted a new look for my nieces Sweet 16 Birthday party, so getting this appointment was imperative. I decided to send a private message to their Facebook page with no true hopes of getting a response. To my surprise not only did I receive a prompt reply but I got an appointment. Thank you Igor, for squeezing me in and making this day extra special. Dominick was my colorist and he rocked my hair; the color is more beautiful than I imagined. He took his time and gave my hair the full attention it needed. After having it toned and conditioned by a nice young man; I sat with my stylist, Eidi. She was just adorable. There's no way you can leave her chair without your confidence being boosted. I lost count of how many times she called me Gorgeous, and I know I'm not, but it's super nice to hear. After the rake and shake with gel and a few toss and turns with the diffuser... my curls have NEVER looked this perfect. Great body and volume, beautiful color and shiny, and literally the perfect curl. I am writing this 3-days after my appointment and I wake up with the song "I woke up like this" playing in my head because my curls are still FLAWLESS!

If you have fine tight curly hair I strongly recommend going to Ouidad and getting a haircut or style with Yvette. I have visited a ton of hair salons looking for a hair stylist and avoiding the afro as soon as my hair dries. I walked in for a haircut and wanted volume and shape for my fine hair. Yvette is very personable. We have similar hair type and quickly started chatting about our experiences with our curly hair. She was very attentive to what I asked for and did exactly what i wanted. She didn't push to sell products she used on my hair nor did my experience feel rushed. I finally found my hair stylist! My hair has volume and a defined shape even after I washed and used my preferred products. Thanks Yvette!

Dominick did an amazing job. I came in with a repair job — too many highlights and in the wrong color for me. I needed it reversed and revised. He did it! Not only did he fix it, he gave me beautiful, flattering color that I love — no matter what the circumstances. Thank you, Dominick! You are awesome!

Best, first time natural haircut experience. They treated me like a queen. Kesha is the best. Very knowledgeable and experienced, she told me my hair type (4b) and taught me how to take care of it= no more crunchy curls. I wanted the Rezo cut, and we spoke in depth about it, with her showing me pics with (4b) women with the Rezo cut, so I fully understood what I was getting. The cut was beautiful. I started getting compliments right away at work. Everyone there made me feel like family. I completely trust Ouidad, and can't wait to get back.

It can look professional or sexy and glamorous.
