Having been a client of Salon & Spa Renova since before they really opened, I was saddened to see my favorite estitician leave but the owner Orlando assured me that I would love the new addition to the team. Welcome Ana Lopez. Ana is a Pevonia specialist and her facials are more than amazing, all I can say is WOW! My first visit Ana spent over an hour talking to me about my skin issues and suggesting an ongoing treatment plan to get my face looking less stressed and in 2 weeks my skin feels wonderful and I have come to really enjoy spending my weekly hour with Ana. Ana is professional to a fault, does not push product, suggests product and procedures to you with definite awareness to costs. She genuinely is concerned with how you feel and look. Highly recommend that you call NOW and book an appointment with her. As to other services, Orlando is the best at keeping my hair looking youthful and fresh, and my new mani/pedi favorite is Kathi, but all the nail techs are great. Ask Wanda to make you a cup of coffee and hope that Orlando asks her to wash your hair. Her head massage is out of this world! Wishing Orlando and his team continued success.

I go to Salon and Spa Renova at least once a week for the last several years. I not only get my hair cut, colored, conditioned with Orlando who is the best, I also get my manicures/pedicures and facials with Rosy and have even had their ear candeling service (which I highly recommend) They are a complete salon and spa. Several of my family members as well as friends also enjoy their wonderful services. Make sure when your there you enjoy their delicious Cappucino.

After a disappointing hair color experience at another salon, I decided to meet with Orlando at Renova for a consultation. Orlando took the time to explain "color101" and discuss the best hair color options for me. Unlike any other colorist I have had in the past, he listened to all my hair color complaints and expectations. Orlando pays great attention to his clients' specific requests and the result is excellent hair color. He makes sure that you are both on the same page so that you get exactly what you ask for. I strongly recommend Orlando for both hair color and styling.

Orlando did a terrific job correcting my orange hair! lol It was truly horrid and he turned my look around. I felt like a movie star walking into a premiere when I was done. Subtle, believable color where there was only bad roots and fried ends at least 3 different shades. My hair felt in great condition too. Oh, and the shampoo included a wonderful head and neck massage.

If you have fried hair and/or need a good color job, this is the place!

I wandered into Renova shortly after they opened in search of a new salon with someone who could really do good color. Not only was I impressed by the time Orlando took to just talk to me about his views, his products and what he could do for me, but after that first appointment, I was sold. He is an amazing colorist. I have never looked back. He is always looking for ways to make his business a success and tries to please every customer. How refreshing that is! I would recommend Renova to everyone.

I highly recommend this Salon to others. I gladly drive over 45 mins and cross county lines to get my hair done at Renova with Orlando. The staff is professional, friendly, attentive, and excellent at their craft. From the minute you walk in the door to your way out, you are treated wonderfully. Orlando is a very experienced and exceptional hairstylist who works wonders on my hair(it has never looked as good as it does now thanks to him!) as well as an excellent business owner who is very conscientious of supervising his staff and attending to his clients. (Free parking is a plus especially in the Grove!)

I have been going here for years, best spa man/ped with no details overlooked. Wonderful owners and very friendly staff make your trip to the spa fun and relaxing as it should be. Anytime I need a gift to give this is what i give and it is appreciated immensely! Nice product selection too! Easy parking which in Miami is a huge benefit. Coffee or nice lemon ice water is a very nice touch!
ENJOY

I drive about 45 minutes to have Orlando style my hair & it's well worth it. It is a wonderful experience each & every time! The services are provied by a curteous & professional staff with years of experience. They are not limited to hair styling offering a wide variety of services. Renova has been able to provide me with what I have always wanted: healthy, shiney, beautiful hair!

I have lived and worked in the Grove for over two decades and have seen people and places come and go. I religiously have a mani/pedi at least twice a month and this place does the most awesome pedicure of all the ones I've tried in the area. I get all the regular stuff of other pedi's (cuticle removal, polish, etc) plus a deep scrub, hot towels, a feet/leg mask, massage -- all while I drink the complimentary cafe latte (or sometimes I drink one of many herbal teas) -- ask for the spa pedi + mani special (both $45). They have 6 spa pedicure stations and the ladies are consistenly great and super clean.

Also, I have been doing hair with the owner since before he opened this place 8-9 years ago (he use to work down the street). I can tell you that he and his staff will go out of their way to insure that the most gentle and safe products are used on your hair. I have seen my friends come here and go to other places who offer quick and perhaps a cheaper route BUT their hair seem to always look fragile and very unhealthy (even break).

For the past 12+ years of coloring with Orlando and/or his staff, my hair feels natural & healty and never has breakage (unlike my other girlfriends which eventually come to him for repair). I can make a long list of who you should avoid here in the Grove but I won't -- usually the ones with the most hype or bogus reviews, are the ones you should avoid. Gals... sit down for a consultation and ask questions before you let someone dump all sorts of chemicals on your hair, OR just go for a blowdry or some other harmless service to feel out the person (& catch their bs)... or go get a mani and check the place out and when you there ask the advice of some of the hair people. This is what I tell my friends (I may just start a blog of all the experiences and nightmares we have gone through). I have also had facials and my friend has had the straightening treatment -- both great.

Pros: BEST Pedi around, free parking, friendly, knowledgeable

I go to school nearby, and live a few blocks over. When I come in for a cut, I take the first available. Usually a risky gambit, but its worked out well for me at Renova. I still get my high lights done when I go home. I only do it a few times a year, so its not worth the stress of finding someone here to trust, then moving again in a few years. I'm a people watcher, so personality matters as much as ability for me.

First I had the owner Rolando. He was very, very good - super precise. We spent a long time talking about the cut. He had a strong idea of what would work for my hair texture and face, and in the end I went with what he recommended. It was not what I thought I came in to get, but in the end I really liked it. While we were cutting, he spent the whole time telling me what was wrong with my color, and what he needed to do to fix it. He also recommended a lot of products for me to use at home. That was a buzzkill. I didn't like hearing my stylist back home put down. Still, great cut, I would go to him again.

Ben has cut my hair a few times. So different. We talk about my hair and what I like for about 5 minutes before shampooing. Once he has the idea of what I want, he makes a few recommendations, and we design on a cut we both thought would work. After a great shampoo, he sits down to cut. He talks a lot, and asks a lot of questions. Have a cup of coffee and enjoy the conversation. His cutting style is fun to watch - imagine getting your hair cut by Einstein/Grizzly Adams! He seems very relaxed and comfortable, and that feeling is contagious.

I have had my blowdry with Cristina a couple times - once she did half while Ben did the other half! Never had 2 at once, that was nice. Her blowdry is the best - better than any one else I've had there, including the owner. When she does it, I don't want to wash it, it looks too good. She's also a lot of fun. She's like a party with blonde hair! If you need to look great, call up and ask for her.

Pros: Nice salon, highly trained, very skilled

Cons: Cluttered, try to "sell" to you (does a salon really need to sell purses and home fragrances?)

.

This is a very nice salon where everyone is super friendly, accomodating, and knowledgeable. They are always professional and turn out exceptional work.

My color & hair is pretty straight forward, but I see the attention and level of professsionalism they give to their other color/hair clients and how they thoroughly listen and explain your "issue" and the resolution to it... it makes alot of sense and they REALLY know their stuff.

I have recommended Renova to friends and the results have been positive.

I've been getting my hair done by Ben for a few years now. I have always left happy. He's teaching color for some company, and I can tell you why - this guy knows his stuff. He's always ready to do something new, but has never gone overboard and given me something that was "too much" - but he isn't afraid to tell me no when I want something that won't work. I think I've asked for bangs three times, and each time he's come up with a diplomatic way to tell me its really a bad idea. He's right, too. They just don't work for me.

Aside from being good, he's fun to talk to. He has an interesting story, every time I leave I feel like I just spent quality time with a good, old friend. One with lots of great stories!

The salon has a pretty nice atmosphere (aside from the music - so bad I bring my own!) Everyone seems to get along for the most part. The girl on one side of him is very fun, but a little crass. Usually in a good way. She is getting busy. The guy on the other side never talks to me, but strikes me as a gentle soul. His clients sure seem to like him. Avoid the owner, he's a real pain in the butt. At least he usually doesn't interfere with his employees much, and lets them take care of their people. Like one other person mentioned, he will find creative ways to improve his bottom line - check your reciept before you pay. They charge enough without padding.

The nail girls are a mixed bag - some are great, some aren't. The turn over for nails is high - I think I've seen 15 girls come and go, so I gave up on that and just come for the hair. None of them speak English, and on a busy day it sounds like Havana on that side of the salon. Viva Miami!!!!

Bottom line, if you need a great color, and patient, real nice guy who understands how to give it to you, call Ben. He's also good with the cuts, and knows how do style my frizzy hair curly or straight. The blowouts last forever. The salon's pretty good - but if he leaves, so do I!

Looking to change your style, get stopped on the street for your cut, look fabulous on your wedding or special event day, or just get a really really good cut that is done expertly on every visit - Alex is the stylist you need to see at Renova. His work is outstanding - for both men and women - the care and concern Alex brings to your lifestyle, your upkeep, and each individual hair is amazing. Not, to mention his "chair-side manner". Alex makes you feel at home, at ease, and that you are in good hands. The salon is welcoming, has a warm feel, and is well run. I love when I go to visit Alex - it is great catching up with him, and looking so good when I leave!

Alex M(the newbie) has been my hairstylist for a long time. I would follow him anywhere! From my wedding day hair and make-up, to color, to highlights, to the latest trendy hairstyle, he is the one I turn to! He can do anything and he does it well; He truly has a passion for what he does. I look forward to sitting in his chair and asking...so what look are we going to try on me today? And now that Alex has found a new home at Renova, I get to ask the question with a cup of their delicious Capuccino!!

I love this place honestly but I have to admit I have left a few times displeased. When I had my nails done there once by a new girl she cut my fingers up very badly and did a terrible job. I had to come in another day to have them redone by Rosy who is the best there. I have had a facial there once before and it was only average. The best stylist there is Irina- she's awesome. The owner likes to over change- which he has done to me in the past when I haven't paid attention to the bill. So this IS a great place- but be careful about who does your services and if you don't feel right about something- speak up immediately to the owner Orlando. Also, pay attention to what youre being charged for. This place is also kept extremely clean and sanitary.

boy do i love this place. both me and my wife had been here on our anniversary and did we just love it. They are really priced high but you will love what you get. We both got a sweedish massage and a couples massage. That was best gift i could have ever given my wife. we just love it. The staff really friendly and did exactly what we wanted and we were so fresh and lively when we got out of this place. Really expensive but worth it. I would say that you have to go here atleast once.

I have been going to Renova for over 2 years and I can't say enough good things about it. The staff is friendly, on time, and highly skilled. The co-owner Orlando does my cut and color and he is great. I also go there for my nails, they have a great deal on spa manicures and pedicures. They have free parking, are really flexible with appointments, and good prices. I highly recommend it.

I'm spoiled. I admit it. I like having my hair and nails done and am not afraid to pay for it (ok spend HIS money for it. heh). We travel a lot so I find myself having to pick a new salon quite frequently. While in Coconut Grove I looked around a few of the salons and settled on Renova. I'm glad I did.

This is a full spa. They offer everything from waxing to massage, to facials to nails. I needed my hi-lights done, and got talked into adding some low-lights to it. Cost for both: $140

While he was washing out the coloring stuff, I decided to go ahead and let him cut it and blow it out too. This is $55 and includes a full scalp massage. Oh man did that ever feel good!

I adore the colors he chose (varying shades of blond) and am glad I let him surprise me rather than try to pick out the colors myself. He has a very good eye and feel for what his clients want. Turned out fabulous.

As for the cut, well, I like it, but will be going back in to get him to cut in some more layering. Not his fault, I wasn't real clear that I wanted just a ton of layers for a wispy-flighty-breezy feel. I am confident he'll do me right, and plan to pay for the full service again. (hey, it's an excuse for another scalp massage!)

I also had a manicure while here. The nail gal was fabulous. I let her pick a red shade, being in a daring mood (I usually go with subtle pinks). I have to tell you, this gal took some horrible nails and made them great. I mean they were so bad due to neglect that I was considering getting acrylics. No need now. I love my nails! Cost: $15

Next time I'm going for the full foot/hand spa special for $45.

Do give Renova a try. They know their stuff... and they feed ya the best mocha cappuccino ever.

PROS: Wonderful staff
CONS: pricey, but worth it

We travel a lot so I find myself having to pick a new salon quite frequently. While in Coconut Grove I looked around a few of the salons and settled on Renova. I'm glad I did.

This is a full spa. They offer everything from waxing to massage, to facials to nails. I needed my hi-lights done, and got talked into adding some low-lights to it. Cost for both: $140

While he was washing out the coloring stuff, I decided to go ahead and let him cut it and blow it out too. This is $55 and includes a full scalp massage. Oh man did that ever feel good!

I adore the colors he chose (varying shades of blond) and am glad I let him surprise me rather than try to pick out the colors myself. He has a very good eye and feel for what his clients want. Turned out fabulous.

As for the cut, well, I like it, but will be going back in to get him to cut in some more layering. Not his fault, I wasn't real clear that I wanted just a ton of layers for a wispy-flighty-breezy feel. I am confident he'll do me right, and plan to pay for the full service again. (hey, it's an excuse for another scalp massage!)

I also had a manicure while here. The nail gal was fabulous. I let her pick a red shade, being in a daring mood (I usually go with subtle pinks). I have to tell you, this gal took some horrible nails and made them great. I mean they were so bad due to neglect that I was considering getting acrylics. No need now. I love my nails! Cost: $15

Next time I'm going for the full foot/hand spa special for $45.

Do give Renova a try. They know their stuff... and they feed ya the best mocha cappuccino ever.

PROS: Wonderful staff
CONS: pricey, but worth it
