Id like to take a moment to clarify a few things. As a former member of the Jim Botts styling Team, I know that Jim himself would not tolerate some of the antics Ive read in other reviews.

Jim has now been deceased for many years...long before any of these reviews were done....So please guys, dont disgrace his good name with complaints as well as compliments to a staff that clearly didnt have Jims philosophy of customer service and excelellence in hair design at the forefronts of thier careers!

First of all, this joint,(no punt implied) has been out or business for obvious reasons known in the St. Pete area. I have been going to Rudy for the years he has been in St. Pete with my children,family and recommended him to all of my business partners as I belong to a prominent firm here in St.. Petersburg Fla. His new salon on Beach Drive is is a confirmation that he and his business partner are an asset to not only to The Beach Drive Community but to the entire St. Petersburg community, Rudy....Hats off to you and Lance for stepping up to the plate in these economic times and giving the people what they want.

A previous stylist at Jim Botts, Rudy Perez, has recently opened his own salon on Beach Drive, downtown St. Petersburg, Salon LaRu. I went to the new salon on Saturday morning to have color done and I absolutely love the results. My hair is very long, and the highlighting process is usually grueling, but my experience was very relaxing and I really liked the turnout. I will definitely be recommending Rudy Perez and his new salon, Salon LaRu, to anyone in need of a good place.

Rudy Perez does not work at Salon Jim Bott's. They JUST MOVED LOCATION TO 1209 4th St. N. right by tropical smoothie. They are known for 20 years straight having the title of Tampa Bay magazines #1 color salon in the Tampa Bay area. Everyone there is very good with color corrections and color in general, precision cutting, and they even do extensions.

I have been going to Jim Botts for years and have never had an experience that actually compelled me to sit down and spend time writing a review. I was in Jim Botts salon the other day with my daughter who is 8 years old and one of her friends from school while I was getting my hair colored. I knew I made a mistake by bringing them and making them sit through such and antagonizing process but didn't realize just how big of a mistake it would be until one of the employees/hairstylists if you would like to actually give this "person/thing" a title came out to greet one of his customers. Rudy Perez is his name and he is THE most fowl mouth, uncooth and vulgar person I have ever met. While I was sitting in my chair with my little girl and her friend who I was entrusted to take care of by her mother, Rudy Perez talked about meeting some guy and having intercourse behind his "partners" home while his partner was in bed asleep. He used a lot more description which I do not think should be posted on this site so I'm not going into detail. But, mothers please take heed not to take your kids in Jim Bott's hair salon unless you want them to know about the horrors of the world. Honestly I think it's just unprofessional and down right degrading even to the cosmetology field which is so loosely looked upon anyhow. And Jim Bott's owner, I won't be coming back. It may not be your fault but your standards for hiring hairstylists may need a little work. It's my understanding that he has been their for years but sometimes money doesn't mean everything, a good name stands for a lot! I have personally told several of my good friends about my experience at Jim Bott's who also have to take their kids along sometimes. I'm a fairly influential person around my circle of friends my employees.

Cons: Vulgar hairstylists with no cooth!

I just moved here from California and was recommend to Salon Jim Botts through a friend of mine at work. I decided to give them a shot, and am so happy that I did! The color is GORGEOUS and my cut is fabulous! It works so well for my hair! I felt comfortable with her doing my hair because not only was she very attentive to me, she helped steer me in the direction of the colors that would look best on me, because I wasn't really sure what to do as far as coloring. And trust me, it looks AMAZING! Honestly, it's very hard for many stylists to cut my hair the right way due to its texture, but the stylist I had did such an amazing job with the layering. It's like she matched me with the perfect cut and color for me! I was a little nervous at first because previous salons that I visited tended to mess up my hair, but this time my hair turned out really beautiful. I just got it done last week and already got SO MANY compliments on it. And not to mention that I can't stop running my fingers through it because it feels so soft and healthy! Another thing that really caught my eye was all the women that just got their hair done. While my color was sitting, I looked around and all their hair looked really good! It's amazing that there are so many good stylists under one roof! The only problem that I experienced was the limited parking. There were so many people getting their hair done that I couldn't find a parking space. But it was not a big deal because I went inside to ask where I could park and they were kind enough to tell me that I could park just on the other side of the street. Seriously, I'm so happy that I gave them a try! If you ever need to get your hair done, go to Salon Jim Botts! You will definitely leave happy!

On October 17, 2008, I posted a review regarding Rudy Perez and Salon Jim Botts in a moment of anger. Since then Rudy Perez and I have amicably resolved any dispute to our mutual satisfaction.

My experiences at this salon over the past few years have been mixed. I have had great haircuts and not so great experience with hair color. Sometimes it's too dark or too orange and have had to go back many, many times for color correction. The stylists tend to cancel at the last minute and leave you with a new stylist who is not familiar with your regular color formula and usually just do whatever color they interpret it to be(even when the color is on file). This has been a costly mistake I am still paying for as my chocolate brown hair was recently dyed reddish black and I still have to go back regularly for color correction in addition to my hair being damaged.

A great salon experience, everyone is friendly and helpful. Alot of attention paid to what I was saying about the color I was looking for. I had a bad experience at another salon and Jim corrected most of the problem and I am sure that be the time we do the next highlight it will be perfect!
