All staff were professional.

“I just moved here and was apprehensive starting with a new stylist/salon after leaving my stylist of 16 years. My neighbor recommended Michelle at James Griffith Salon and I'm glad she did. From the moment I walked in the door, I was at ease. All staff were professional, courteous and clearly focused on the customer. Michelle was easy to talk with and made me feel very comfortable about her knowledge and understanding of my needs. She was professional and did a great job with my color and cut. Her apprentice, Cody, was also a pleasure to get to know and I look forward to my next appointment with them!”

3 words. I LOVE IT!

“I recently decided that I wanted a different hair style. Although I have been going to the same hair stylist for 5 years, I believe that if you want a change then you need to change your stylist. So I made an appointment at the James Griffin salon in Sarasota. I can honestly say that I have never received a bad haircut at any place I have gone to. When Vanessa started to cut my hair with a razor instead of scissors, I almost went into panic mode. Would this be my first bad hair cut?
I only have 3 words to say about my new hair color and cut. I LOVE IT!”
