I recently went to Smith & Mendoza for the first time and they were wonderful! They were extremely clean, wore masks, and gave out hand sanitizer. Jessica was very helpful in finding my best look and making sure I was satisfied with my cut. ...
I have gone back two times so far to keep it the way I want and will keep going to them. About 6 months ago I decided to ye my dark brown hair red. I had friend help because I've been dying it black for years and I know the red wouldn't take unless we lightened my hair firs. My friend did a good job but it was still spotty. I contacted Dani and she told me to come into Smith a and Mendoza for a consultation. Once she saw my hair she knew I needed it fixed and gave me an incredible quote. Not only did she fix the tone and shade of my hair but it's more of what I wanted all these years. I have gone back two times so far to keep it the way I want and will keep going to them. I decided to cut my hair and do new hair styes ad I trust them completely. In addition to Dani, the two owners Jessica and Jesse are truly amazing. They are always so welcoming and now how to lift my spirits. I sometimes go there feeling down but when I leave from visiting Smith and Mendoza I feel so happy and better about myself. They make you delicious coffee or tea and sometimes there are even baked goods. They are always there to talk and chat but understand when you need your quiet moments. Now that I have found them I will never go anywhere in Miami ever ever again. I recommend this place if you are looking for a place you can trust to get the hair style you want and one you would love. This salon is not just a salon it is now part of my family a place I trust and that has helped me shine and become more of the person I want to become. Thank you, Smith, and Mendoza.
Jessica & Jesse have created the perfect salon. Not just your average salon or stylists, they are cutting edge, precise, on-point style wise and continually innovating. Friendly, fun, professional and overall a great experience. Can't recommend them enough!
Jessica and Jesse are masters at their profession. Jesse is a creative and expert colorist. His recommendations for me lead to compliments from complete strangers. Jessica is an expert stylist for all types. For my very short hair, she does a superb technical cut. Both were trained to Sassoon's exacting techniques and were talented professionals at Sassoon salons before opening their beautiful salon in Coral Gables. The atmosphere is welcoming, friendly, and relaxing.
If you are looking for an stylist to trust for a makeover, this is it! Jessica has an special talent to create amazing, one of a kind hair cuts. She takes her time in every cut, making sure everything is perfect. The attention to detail in both color and hair cuts are beyond. Even the cappuccino they offer while you are getting all glammed is so delish! I've definitely found my favorite salon in Miami!
I've worn bobs for 7 years and noone has EVER cut my hair like Jess did today. It is laser sharp and absolutely perfect. Noone ever will touch my hair again if it isn't her ! The salon is beautiful and she is the sweetest. Thanks so much! I love my look xoxooxox
I highly recommend Smith & Mendoza. Jessica has been my go-to stylist for about 8 years, and I will not trust my hair with anyone else. She is a true perfectionist and a very sweet, genuine person which makes the experience that much better. Her partner Jesse is equally amazing if you are looking to color your hair. I will be a client of this salon for years to come!
I highly recommend Dani. I had my hair cut and ombré-balayage and it came out exactly how I wanted it. She is the nicest, super patient... the whole experience was great! Coming back to her definitely
Jessica is an artist. It's difficult to find someone that can cut short, curly hair and she does it so well. She listens to what you want and makes sure you are happy before you leave. I walk out of the salon feeling like a new person and very happy with the cut and the maintenance afterwards. As a mom of two small children, I need something easy, that looks good with minimal effort and I still get compliments for months after the cut. Also, you couldn't ask for a nicer stylist. Her and Jesse are both amazing people who make you feel comfortable as soon as you walk through the door!
I have been a client of Smith and Mendoza for over 3 years and will not style my hair by anyone else. I have short hair and every single time I think nothing new could be done I have been surprised by the creativity and talent of Jessica and Jesse. Jessica the hairstylist does sublime, precise and elegant cuts; Jesse the colorist is a genious blending all the best products. My hair ends us softer each time even when bleached. From classic cuts to edgy, to my wedding hair, I've done it all here. I recommend them to everyone I know.
