Miami >Jb Veltman
For those who don't want the latest rage, and get enough spa atmosphere at the spa, the art of hair design is taken to a new level by JB
One of Coconut Grove's best kept secrets, JB offers a serene and private hair design studio. JB has traveled the world as a Glemby designated "high fashion" stylist and instructor for couture runway shows and editorial layouts in publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Elle. JB is equally accomplished at cutting and color. While some colorists specialize in one color, JB has an artist's sensibility and an engineer's precision making any color he does seem natural and attractive. The philosophy of a tranquil, professional studio that offers extraordinary privacy and personalized attention has made the Patrick Garelle Salon the preferred salon of Miami's elite. JB is a Brazilian Keratin Treatment educator. …
Review from Steve Bennis. My name is Steve Bennis. I went to JB for my hair cut. JB is truly an artist. Anyone should try it. Steve Bennis
you have no need to search further--just call JB.
I have now been a client of JB's for over 2 years so this is not a "first impression" but a true review from a regular customer. Having moved from LA I have had my share of "hair experiences"--good and bad, big salons and intimate boutiques. Arriving in Miami I expected to be searching for many months before finding someone I could trust with my hair (coloring and cut). I considered other local stylists recommended by friends here in Miami but found JB via Citysearch (the internet???--yes!) and have never left.
For my first experience at this "private hair design studio" I expected the visit to be a bit tense and edgy as you might expect from such a description. Far from it! The studio is relaxed and intimate and very welcoming. The tone is set by JB and his very capable assistant Kara who keep the action flowing without melodrama.
My return visits to the studio have convinced me that JB and Kara could handle any "hair emergency" for any client and keep the atmosphere low-key.
My cuts and coloring have been great! Nothing complex in coloring but done so that I don't have to worry about an awkward "painted" hairline or "bleeding color" for the next 2 days when I work out or just get out and about in the Miami humidity. (Trust me--I have had this experience before in LA!)
For over 2 years JB and Kara have been a regular entry in my calendar. Now when I have Miami friends asking me where I get my hair done--! I tell them "JB Veltman", of course!
I agree with the others on this site. JB truly takes the time to listen to what you want, and is focused on giving you what YOU want and not what a stylist thinks you should have.
When I went the first time I had very badly damaged hair that was breaking off like crazy from all the color damage. I had home colored my hair to the point that it was unrecognizable on any color scale. I actually had a man come up to me in the street in a foreign country and ask me "What color is your hair?!?" That's bad.
Just one visit and almost all of the nasty brassiness is gone and I"m getting my blonde back. One of the nice things is that JB focuses first on getting your hair healthy, so he won't do a bunch of things all at once that will add damage even if he could make more money by doing it. Healthy hair first. Yayyy! Otherwise you wouldn't be a return customer because you wouldn't have hair. It may take 2-3 visits to get my color and condition back, but I'm well on the way now, and have another appt. this week.
I relied on the posts on this site, and they were right. But do be on time - its sooo nice that here in Miami someone is right on time and not Miami time. :)
BEST of the BEST!!!.
I was looking for a new stylist and came across JB Veltman. My first impression was lasting... he took the time to listen to what I needed and I got the results
JB understands his clients and truly is a fabulous artist! My hair has never looked better. I have very difficult hair, and JB is the only one I would trust with it! So glad I found him.
His assistant Kara is wonderful too!!! I really enjoy going in to see them both. :)
I came to JB with messed up highlights and he gradually transformed my hair into the most beautiful it's ever been. He is truly experienced in every way--he listens to you and combines your wants with his expertise to create the healthiest, most gorgeous hair. I can't imagine going anywhere else now.
Plus, his assistant Kara is--no lie--THE best scalp massager EVER. We've all gotten our hair shampooed at places where they only care to wash it, but Kara really digs in for a good amount of time, resulting in the best scalp massage you could ever dream of.
Basically, you won't regret going to JB. TRUST ME.
JB Veltman, Coconut Grove, Florida. Incredible artist! My hair has not looked this good in a long time. JB and his assistant Cara are wonderful. JB is outstanding when it comes to color and color corrections. I would recommend JB for anyone who is tired of mediocre hairstylists and is ready for some seriously spectacular hair!
Best Hairdresser in Miami. I have never had better hair in my life. JB is the best! My color is so natural looking, and the cut is just perfect. JB listens to his clients, and is so friendly and attentive to their wants/needs. His experience and talents are just amazing!! He truly is the Grove's best kept secret. Plus his assistant Cara is totally awesome too!! =)
Great customer service and highlights..
I went to J.B. Veltman looking for a new salon and was pleasantly surprised. I am a very picky customer and
J.B. and his staff made me feel at home. My hair needed a different color of highlights and he was very attentive and professional. The highlights he did were very natural and complimentary to my skin color. He also styled my hair and it looked thicker and shinier than ever. Overall his service was excellent.
The Absolute BEST!.
I recently moved and had to find a new hair stylist. I went to JB because of these reviews. I am VERY VERY picky as to how my hair is treated and done as well as the person who is touching it. So it took some courage to go, however I am so glad I did. JB listens and does what you say about your hair instead of telling you what should, can and can't be done. That alone is hard to find in many stylists.
Thanks to JB I have gorgeous colored healthy hair that I am very happy about.
Excellent!. I had a great expereince with JB Veltman after getting tired of trying all the "trendy" over priced salons in the area - where I was almost always left with a very average style and unnatual highlights. JB gave great recommendations about how to style my hair. I never felt like he was tkaing advantage of me by pressuring me to do ore to my hair than was necessary. He is honest and it is obvious very good at what he does. My hair color has never looked more natural or as beautiful. For someone looking for quality, I highly recommend JB.
