Barbara is a savior! I am new to the area, recently moving here few months ago from NYC. I was in search for a hairdresser to touch up my roots. I had been hesitant to get my hair done in a new area, especially coming from an area like

Being new to the area, I tried numerous salons and stylists and was extremely disappointed in the color and cuts I received. \n\nHaving asked a friend with great looking color and styling where she goes, she said Barbara Forgione Salon.\n\nI made an appointment, tried it and will never go anywhere else again. Peggy provides a complete consultation, really listens to what you want and gives it to you. I am very pleased with the precision and quality of the haircuts and absolutely love how natural and beautiful highlights are. \n\nI highly recommend Peggy and all the staff at Barbara Forgione.

I had an appointment with Barbara for High lites. It was my first time in and I was rudely awakened by pepto bismol tacky pink walls, Dusty furntiture, unswept hair everywhere, loud talking, stylists and even Barbara on their cell phones right in front of other clients! I told Barbara that I wanted high lites that were not orange or red toned. She then told me she was going to the back to mix up then I see her in the mirror on the computer searching the internet, it was atleast about ten minutes before she went to the back to mix the color. The whole application process was so uncomfortable, her phone kept going off, she was yelling at her staff across the small cluttered salon, and she just gave off the worst energy, I could not wait for it to be over. When it was time to be rinsed I had to wait even longer to be rinsed out since they only have 2 sinks for 5 stylists. She had another girl rinse me and put a glaze on, which I found out later costed me $30, along with having to pay for a blowdry!!! All and all my hair came out an orange tone which she told me was warm not orange. I even overheard her insulting an existing client and telling her how bad her hair was and how florescent it was! It cost me an arm and a leg and the experience and hair color was a disaster. Awful experience and one of the most unprofessional salons I have ever been in.

I am from Miami and recently moved to the Tampa area in search of a new hair salon. Obviously coming from a city with no shortage of stylists, it was nerve racking to transition over to a new place. Thank goodness I found Vicky at the Barbara Forgione Salon because she has been my beauty savior!!! \n\nI first went to a different salon only bc it was close to my house, and the girl who did my color completely messed it up. Through searching on the internet I managed to find Barbara Forgione Salon and get linked up with Vicky over a year ago... it was the best thing to have happened. She not only fixed the disaster color job from the previous salon, but has colored my hair with perfection every visit since! She is absolutely fabulous and I have referred her to several of my friends in the area who have all been equally as impressed.\n\nI'm also petrified of letting anyone cut my hair and keep it very long. I finally asked Vicky to cut and style it and have gotten more compliments on my hair after she cut it then ever before. This girl rocks, and if you need a stylist, absolutely get in with her. I drive 45 minutes to see her and it is SO worth it!

First time in salon needed help with brassy blonde hair.\r\nBarbara review colors with me and where I wanted my haircolor to be, walked out of there with a beautiful haircolor. She knows her color.

I had gone to another salon to darken my blonde hair. I told him ""no black, no burgandy, just med auburn"". I walked out with black hair with burgandy undertones. HORRIBLE!!! I cried for 2 days straight. I was afraid to ask him to fix my hair, so I looked elsewhere. I found Vicky at this salon. She was not ony very sympathetic, she was extremely knowledgeable about hair color. Although she could not completley remove the color w/o frying it, she highlighted it in a way tht it is now a beautiful rich chocolate brown. I wish I had gone to her first, I am sure I would have gotten what I wanted to begin with. GO TO THIS SALON! I have never had this level of service, and their prices are more than reasonable.

I went to see Vicky for a trim and style. I had long, thick, wavy, brown hair. I left with chopped, thinned, overly curled hair. I told her that I did not want my hair so overly curly and I was unhappy with the style. She said she couldn't help me that she had to pick up her daughter. So I left with the worst hair cut and style of my life. I called the next day to see if Vicky had time to fix it then...I was told she was booked solid. But the girl who answered the phone said she could fix it. She was evidently new because my hair looked frizzy and tangled after she ""styled it"" AND she charged me (for a hair fix?!). It will take me a year to grow it out so it looks as good as it did before I went to this salon. Very disappointed in the service and atmosphere...especially after reading all the positive reviews.

I have lived in Tampa Bay for almost 14 years and have shopped around at many of the higher end salons. Most often I felt intimidated, paid a lot of money for my color & cut, and bought cupboards full of products that didn't work for my hair. I never felt especially pretty, or got much attention.\n\nThree years ago I started going to the Barbara Forgione Salon and today I feel like a completely different person. I have a style and a confidence that I never had before. I just turned 40 years old and strangers are beginning to look at me now. Honestly it feels good.\n\nThey have transformed my appearance and taught me the ""how tos"" for so many things I never knew before. Like which products to use & how, simple hair tricks for the days I can't get to the shower, and how to apply my eye makeup, etc...\n\nI often tell Vicky that I think she is a ""Master"" like Leonardo de Vinci, or Michaelangelo. She is seriously THAT GOOD. Every time I get my hair done I feel like I should send a thank you card. Every time is my favorite and every time gets better.\n\nBook with Jai Wyan for a facial and you'll get amazing results and a lasting skin care education. The products he recommended radically improved my skin, and his simple brow shaping accentuated my features beyond measure. \n\nBarbara Forgione Salon treats its customers like old friends and offers the latest & greatest services at an excellent value. Run, don't walk. You won't be sorry.\n\n

I have been going to the Barbara Forgione Salon for about a year now. I have never had a bad experience at all. Rather, I have been very pleased. Not only is everyone friendly and laid-back, they know their stuff. \r\nIt is a quaint salon but chic and welcoming, too. It sort of mirrors south Tampa--ecclectic! Barbara corrected my color after visiting a few other salons in Tampa and not being pleased. Barbara did an amazing job. The prices are more than reasonable for being a salon in south Tampa, too. One reviewer from September mentioned it was a horrible experience and was not kind at all in her review. Maybe she was so used to her NY salon, that she did not communicate well enough during her visit. She obviously was new to the area and did not know the charm or south Tampa--where an older house can easily be next to a new, bigger house. Neighborhoods/streets in south Tampa intertwine that way. A great salon can easily be next to an older house ... that's south Tampa. I have beautiful highlights and lowlights every time.

I moved here from NY area where there are high end salons and master trained stylists and colorists. After reading the reviews on this salon and it being in Tampa, I was expecting a NY style experience and quality. What I got instead was a little hole in the wall strip mall salon out in the boondock lowend of the suburbs. I shouldve turned around then. Suffice it to say I walked in with glorious hair and walked out with chopped up fruit stripped gum looking hair after a draining five hour stay. Not to mention they made me sign a waiver before the color saying it is not an exact science and the results may not be as I hope. Ill say. They must have made those up after many people complained this is not what I wanted. I usually go to Zoku salon in NY/NJ and you can not beat it, you leave looking like a movie star like it or not. Hair as silky and bouncy and healthy as they come. Champagne is served and the colorist, cutter amd stylist are not all one and the same, everyone has there expertise. Now my hair is ruined, will take a good year to get it back to the way it was. \r\nJust dont bother. Its just a bunch of housewive moms who have part time jobs as hairstylists

Barbara Forgione Salon outshines all other salons! You simply can't go wrong by allowing by going here. Going to get my hair done used to be a ""chore"" and just something that had to be done and not really something to look forward to. Those days are gone! Peggy is very skillful & attentive. Barbara is the best colorist anywhere -bar none. Jai is a real treasure with his personality and skills. All stylists are top notch!! Wonderful friendly atmosphere for all age ranges.

Barbara rescued me from constantly covering up my gray roots! I desperately wanted to get off the monthly merry-go-round of coloring my roots and just let them grow, but did not want the gray grow-out look. Barbara incorporated some beautiful fine white streaks in my hair that allowed for a nice and natural blend. I couldn't be more pleased!

I have been going to Barbara's salon for years and would recommend her salon to everyone. Every stylist is personable and always willing to help you leave looking your best. Missy does an amazing job on my hair and has given me options with my hair that I never had before. She did the Deva treatment on my hair and I can now go from my normally straight style to curly in one washing. In this Florida humidity, not something I could have ever pulled off without Missy's help. \nNot to be overlooked by any means, Jai is an artist with the tweezers. I get compliments on my brows weeks after he has worked his magic. Worth every penny!\nSo looking forward to my next appointment.

Over the years, I've had a lot of good cuts-and a lot of bad ones. This time, I really did my homework before stepping into Barbara Forgione's salon. My research really paid off! Vicky was very attentive to my needs and gave me useful feedback and suggestions. I walked in with dead ends and ""horse hair syndrome"" and left with silky-soft, touchable tresses. The cut was precise and flattering- Vicky is an expert with her scissors! I made an appointment to go back for ombre highlights. Can't wait! :)

I know I'm going against the grain here but I was really let down by this salon. I made an appointment after reading all the great comments. I had Peggy and got the deva cut. My hair wasn't as curly as it normally is when i went in so that may be part of the problem. It turned out very choppy and is longer than I wanted, I feel like I paid $95 for a not-so-great trim. When she was finishing, she said she knew it was longer than I wanted but I could just come back in 6 weeks. But i have no desire to pay another 100 buck, when it should have been done better the first time.

Saturday was my first trip to the Barbara Forgione Salon and it won't be my last! All of the staff was so friendly and helpful. I received an awesome haircut and after seeing Barbara with Hair Flair, I decided to get a few strands myself. I was worried that my conservative work environment might not approve; however, everyone has had nothing but great things to say about them. They all think it is the coolest thing ever, and being fond of everything sparklely, I just adore them, they are so much FUN!!!

When I showed up at Barbara Forgione's Salon my once pretty blonde hair had turned a brassy, orange color that was such an embarrassment I almost didn't want to meet anyone new. After years of over-bleaching and a stylist who never really looked at what was good for me, my hair was stringy and straggly to the point I thought I was going bald and would need hair transplant surgery. I was really nervous but Barbara spent so much time with me that I took the plunge and let her work her magic. \r\n\r\nAfter one session, my stringy, brassy orangeish hair was transformed to a tasteful, attractive and spirit-lifting blonde. And, Peggy, performed a miracle cut so that my hair no longer looks stringy but has a lot of body, looks great and the cut is so superb that even I can style my hair with minimal fuss (it had been taking me an hour to coax my severely damaged, shredded hair into a semblance of a hair style).\r\n\r\nI have been to dozens of salons all over Florida and am very particular about my hair - if my hair looks good then I feel good - and am so happy to say that I have found the best salon in Florida. Thank you Barbara and Peggy!

I have been searching for the right cut AND highlight for my fine, damaged, frizzy, want-to-be-long hair. Now, thanks to Vickie, my hair has soft curl with just the right balance of highlight and lowlights (which I've never been able to achieve)!!!\n\nI am especially happy because Vickie REALLY listened to me and took the time to get my hair just right. She is too good to be true!

It was the evening of Dec. 23rd and after cutting hair all day, Peggy kindly let me come in so she could fix a botched haircut I got at another salon. She is meticulous and did an amazing job! So much so that I went back after Christmas and she gave me a hair smoothing treatment to help my hair look longer. It's been a couple of weeks and my haircut still looks great.\nThanks Peggy!

I was in desperate need of someone fixing the color that Tony & Guy's people had me believing was my eyes misleading me or the lighting in the salon that had the roots of my hair looking red and different from the rest of my hair. I was new to this area and was looking for a good colorist and stylist. I have curly hair with lots of gray. A friend had highly recommended Tony & Guy so after the first dissatisfaction I thought I would give them another chance, however same result with a different colorist! I was not happy. I searched online and found Barbara's salon read the reviews on color and curly hair and had to try it. I couldn't believe the color transformation. I had my natural color back again. I was very happy with the minimal highlights they put in it as well. Vicky and Barbara both worked on my hair and it came out perfect. If you need a salon to fix the color that other salons have not been getting right I encourage you to try this salon out, you wont be disappointed =)\nThis salon has awesome products. The staff is very down to earth, you will not leave disappointed.

I am 38 years old & i can honestly say that i have never walk out of a hair salon happy . I could never find anyone that knows how to cut curly hair until now , Barbara Forgione & her hairstylists are the masters of curly hair, They are all ""Deva Curl"" Trained which is a special technique for curly hair . Not only did i get the best hair cut ever, my color has never looked better. They also showed me what products to use & how to style my hair. My husband told me that my hair looked the best it's ever looked after coming out of a salon. Thanks to Barbara Forgione salon I will never have frizz again.

Barbara Forgione Salon is a hair salon.I came on a snowy weekday. Needless to say, it wasn??t a busy day. There were four stylists working and only two customers. The woman who cut my hair was very friendly, but not too chatty. She did a great job cutting my hair. I didn??t give her a lot of details about what I wanted, but she took what I told her and gave me a great cut. I have this curse of going to a cheaper place and telling them to give me something short and a little edgy and leaving with the same bob every time. I actually took in a picture of this really short choppy look once and they still bobbed it.

The salon was very clean. There was no hair on the floor. The chairs and booths were immaculate. The reception desk was right in the doorway, rather than shoved away in an inconvenient corner. There is a small waiting area right by one of the booths. This would be good if you take your children along with you when you get a cut, because they would be right in your area.

I??m very happy with the style I left with. I??m definitely going to make this my regular place, because the price was decent and the cut was amazing.

I am so happy to have found Vickie Michael and Barbara Forgione that I wanted to share my experience and impression with others. First, I am cautious by nature and discovered Barbara Forgione after a year of searching for the right salon. Vickie Michael put me at ease with her peaceful and serene nature. She listened well and then guided me gently to trust her, the result was the best haircut I have had in years, if not ever. I was so uplifted by the experience that I immediately scheduled a hair color appointment. I had the privilege of having my color done by Barbara Forgione herself. Barbara's artistry gave me not only a naturally beautiful color but also hair that shines and glistens. I love it. My words feel limited but from my heart, the artists at Barbara Forgione Salon, are generous in sharing their talents and I feel blessed to have found them!

I learned two very important lessons recently, never let your un-licsensed sister highlight your hair and never go to a salon other than Barbara Forgione's!!! I have been meaning to go to her salon for 2 years now but with 2 very small children and a new business I just never could find the time. Well after my sister turned my hair into a creamscicle I knew I finally had to make the time! From the moment I sat in Barbara's chair I knew I was in good hands. Very to the point and with a no fluff approach she got down to buisness asking me what I wanted but more importantly telling me what she thought would be best for my coloring and what could be realistically done for my first visit. I came in with hot orange roots and big white highlights, but I left with the most natural looking golden blonde I've always dreamed of having. Unbelievable. You can tell that her knowledge and understanding of color comes inately to her. That stuff cannot be taught. You either have it or you don't. This woman has it! And I am confident that anyone she hires is an authentic artist in their own right, the place is beaming with creativity and passion. I will never stray, she's got me as a client for life!!!

Wow- what a great experience. Found this salon on the web and looked at the stylists bios before making an appointment.\n\nWas kinda nervous, since I'm new to town and had no direct recommendations on where to get a good cut/style. I'd also like to mention that I haven't changed my hairstyle in years.\n\nWhen I went into Barbara Forgione's Salon, I felt very comfortable with the surroundings and friendly staff. I liked my stylist, Cassandra Kenney, so much that I surprised myself and totally changed my look. I couldn't believe the result! I was very pleased.\n\nCassandra is talented, intuitive and down-to-earth.\n\nThis was the best experience I've had in a long time, as far as wanting to make a change in my look and having the confidence in the stylist's ability to do it!\n

I was truly blessed by Barbara Forgione and Missi White, They are the angels that touched me and my daughters, when they gave me a makeover of my hair, makeup and a photoshoot. This salon is the best in Tampa!! We had a great memorable time, I have cancer and they made me feel like a new person. I now feel confident and beautiful, thanks to them. I would recommend this salon to anyone that wants professional advice on hair and beauty. Everyone in this salon treated us like divas. I love my new look and so does my family. Thank you Barbara and Missi. God bless you always!!!!

I'm new to Tampa and had tried a few salons to keep the gray out of my hair, I'd used a lot of box color in the past and was trying to get a more natural look. The problem was that every where I went the stylists would match the box color...so I'd paid a small fortune to get the results I could out of a box. The first thing Barbara asked me was if I wanted to go back to my natural color, I said of course but can you figure it out? She said of course and explained my natural colors and noticed what no other stylist had noticed to date...my hair was taking on an orange bleached color. Exactly what I was trying to get rid of! \r\n\r\nNeedless to say she spent several hours and gave me priceless advice on how better to care for my hair. It now looks very natural and very healthy!. It was expensive but I knew that going in, I'd already paid a small fortune to so many other places to mess it up. Thankfully I don't have to worry about anyone messing with my hair that is skilled at matching box colors. I've got Barbara on speed dial and plan to keep my hair looking healthy and natural by becoming one of her regulars!

Cons: cost

I had gone for a cut/color last year to Salon Jack, where Kim placed a demi-permanent VERY GOLD color in my hair. She told me it would gradually wash out, but it never did, and I was horrified by the warmth and gold in my hair. My husband and co-workers all thought my hair looked ""red"". I brought in 5 different pics to show her the look I was trying to achieve, and none of them were reddish-gold in color. When I returned to Salon Jack to give her a chance to fix the color, she applied a toner, but I could not see any difference, and when I explained my dissatisfaction she replied ""You call this red???'"" I was very bothered by this comment, felt very uncomfortable sitting in her chair. With customer service like that I knew I'd never be back. I made an appointment at Barbara Forgione Salon based upon the recommendation from a co-worker. Vicky did my cut and color, and I am so pleased with the results!!! A complete 180 degree different experience from the other place. Vicky is very talented, professional, and truly wants to make you happy. She is extremely capable, and knows what she's doing. I am so happy to have found her, I love my hair!

Pros: there hair color is beautiful,great products!

I went to Barbara with my hair color in a real mess. I knew I needed someone who really knew what they were doing to fix it. I found that person in Barbara. She took a LOT of time to really examine the problem and come up with a solution. She was also very honest about the initial results and the long term results ie this would not be fixed completely in one visit. When I walked out after the first visit I was thrilled, to me my hair was completely repaired and looked great. Subsequent visits really showed me just what an expert Barbara is. No one has ever done a better job at coloring my hair and I have lived and travelled extensively in the USA and internationally. So my recommendation is not just a local one. Great job, highly recommend.

My first vist to the salon was nerve racking to me. I am not one to change but the staff made me feel incrediably comfortable. My stylist Peggy, was the best she took her time with me listen to my concerns and nervousness on having someone new cut my hair.\r\nShe was incredible. My haircut was perfect and lasted thru the 5 weeks before I needed another cut. Second cut was just as great and I would recommend Peggy to anyone for great haircut. Compliments to my cut have been numerous and that says alot. Peggy I'll be back you are great.

I have been going to Vicky for my color and cuts and it is an outing that I always look forward to and am never disappointed. She does an amazing job. I am always made to feel so welcome by everyone and leave feeling like a million dollars. I have moved a lot over the years and have had some disasterous experiences with stylists along the way. I can honestly say that finding the right salon and stylist is right up there with finding the best doctor etc. A good reason never to leave Tampa!

I scheduled my very 1st appointment w/Barbara Forgione Salon after coming across an ad for the Salon. I don't recall where I saw the ad, but something caught my eye and prompted me to call for more information. I scheduled my 1st appointment w/Victoria and it was far from the ""typical"" first time visit for a Cut/Color/Style! Unfortunately, I have an illness and due to my illness/subsequent treatment, I was losing my hair. During that first visit, Victoria was incredibly understanding and she handled my situation with the utmost care and warmth. Victoria enlisted help from two other Stylists, Cassandra and Peggy, who were also wonderful. At the end of a very long day for all 4 of us, I walked out of the Salon feeling like a new person!! I was able to look at myself in the mirror and NOT be reminded of my ailment because all three women did a phenomenal job! Victoria gave me an incredible haircut/style so that I could keep up with the challenges I was facing...my husband even noticed! I am very proud to say that I am now a client of Victoria's and will be for as long as I am in Tampa. I am also grateful to Cassandra and Peggy for their help as well. Jai is also wonderful at what he does, I enjoy the relaxing time I spend w/him while I get my eyebrows waxed. Every time I visit the Salon, I walk out feeling like a new woman who can face any and all challenges in front of me! Thank you to all of the wonderful staff @ Barbara Forgione Salon! AND THANK YOU BARBARA FOR PLACING THE AD, I BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES IN LIFE AND I WAS MEANT TO BECOME A NEW CLIENT OF VICTORIA'S AND JAI'S AT YOUR SALON! ;)

Cassandra was amazing! I have really thick hair and most people end up cutting to much or too little of it.. she took out the weight that drives me crazy but didn't leave it feeling thin.. the color is perfect, looks natural but edgy. This was the first time I've ever been able to show someone a picture and leave the salon w/ the same cut. Everyone there was courteous and I didn't have to wait forever for Cassandra to get to me. I will definitely be going back.

Missy also educated me on how to blowout & curl my hair properly so it would last! No shortcuts were taken here, just pure perfection!

Finding Barbara Forgione Salon was an answered prayer! After having enough of being herded through a large salon, I so appreciate the personal attention that I receive at Barbara Forgione Salon.

My first visit to Barbara was for Yuko, it was a great experience, and she is very well educated! I was getting my cut and color done somewhere else that was very pricey, and not happy with the results. I started looking for a new salon and immediately thought about Barbara. I got an appointment, and she fixed me up - not to mention for half the price I was paying! The team at Barbara Forgione is fun and I look forward to each appointment I have!

Barbara Forgione's Salon...I have tursted Barbara and her team for 13 years!! The consistancy of their work has delivered gorgous color to my old gray hair!!! My highlights always make me look younger. They know just the right color to make my hair look natural and beautiful. I found Barbara and I feel so lucky that I can trust her to make the \r\nbest choice for my hair. She and her team of Perfesionals are the best in Tampa ..plus her prices are more then reasonable.

I have been getting my hair done in NYC even after I moved back to FL 4 years ago...I am obviously a loyal and picky client, but I decided that I needed to find a permanent salon here in town...and as fate would have it I found Vicky at the Barbara Forgione Salon. I have gone to her twice already (in the 4 months I have been here), she convinced me to make a big cut (5 inches) to achieve the new Gwyneth Bob and I was extremely happy with the results. The second time I saw her she did my color and it was amazing, she mixed golden and blond highlights in my auburn hair and made it look natural without being boring. Besides being a talented hair artist she is also an amazing person to talk to and makes you feel at ease as soon as you sit down in her chair. The salon is small and charming, and it definitely one of the best kept secrets in Tampa...I am surprised there is not a waiting list out the door for this place. I definitely recommend this salon and Vicky.

I usually stay close to home for hair styling but I had a friend tell me about Barbara. I decided to take the drive to South Tampa. I walked in the door and was pleasantly greeted by Barbara and her wonderful staff in her beautiful shop. I wasn't sure what I wanted done but I knew I needed something. I sat down in the chair and gave myself over to her fully. I just asked that she not cut it too short. I came away with a beautiful shade of red with highlights and an awsome updated layered cut. I now have beautiful hair and an amazing cut. I will definately make the drive from now on!! What a relaxing salon experience I am glad I relinquished control to Barbara and her staff.

Cons: I can't find one!

.

I don't really like to spend alot of money on my hair, but I heard about Barbara's salon and thought I'd give it a try. I gave control over to Barbara and came away with an amazing cut and beautiful color and highlights. I will DEFINATELY be a returning client and will reccomend to friends.

This salon is the best salon in all of Tampa, I have searched for the best stylist who know their color and this place knows what they are doing. Missy, Cassandra, Vicky, Jai, Peggy and of course Barbara are the best at what they do. Don't trust any other salon!!
