Tampa >Bangz Salon & Spa
Miss M.B., I was in Bangz making an
appointment to get my hair done while you were there, and let me tell you...it's not often in a persons life where, they run across someone that they know in there heart.."they cannot make Happy"....you're one of those people ! If GOD himself parted the Red Sea, and flew you there on Unicorns...you still wouldn't be Happy.
I've been going there for years, and have yet, to have a Bad experience
I just had an appointment at Bangz with Aimee B. The appointment was for 1pm but on my way there (just over 20 minutes before the appoint) I received a call. Since I was driving, my cell phone was on silent so I did not get the message until 1:05 when I was actually sitting there waiting. When I got to the salon, I was greeted with ambivalence and told to "have a seat." An older woman came in and was greeted effusively and asked if she wanted some water. I then looked up and asked if I could have some too. When brought my water, I was made to engage in obviously banal banter and then I mentioned that I had just gotten a message from them. Then it was finally acknowledged that something was amiss. Aimee came over and said she would be 45 minutes late and would I mind waiting, or maybe I could go get some lunch. I replied that I had already eaten and spent a good deal of time and gas! getting there. Also, my time is just as if not more important than the hairdressers. I was never offered a drink like the salon purports to give its clients, and as I was leaving Aimee exclaimed that that fact was not her fault because she had not been the one to greet me. Unprofessional. Uncaring. Obviously after my money and not really my business. My first and last appointment.
Go see Ammie!.
A coworker of mine suggested this salon about a year ago, and I made an appointment with Ammie.. Now, I would not go anywhere else, and I drive about 40 minutes out of my way. The salon itself is very nice and professional (but seriously not over priced.) I love that they offer me a glass of wine or a beer while I get my hair done.
Ammie is very thorough in making sure she understands exactly what I want and has never missed a beat. She is amazing with color and cut (and I am very picky.) The salon is wonderfully priced, professional, and has a very fun atmosphere.
Far from home, but worth the trip!.
This is not a gratuitous rating - but I have been going to Bangz Salon for a year now, and absolutely love it. Moreover, I have been a client of Maria Fodero for two years, and cannot express how wonderful she is; as a person, and as a stylist. While stylists I've had before her had told me that I couldn't have a certain style, cut, or color (or misinterpreted what I had hoped for), she *always* made it happen, and made it look good!
When I first became her client, my hair was very damaged, seemingly beyond repair, and I refused to cut it short (at the time). However, Maria managed to take charge of it, restore its health/condition, while still coloring, highlighting, and cutting it so it doesn't just look good - it *feels* good, too. The colors she blends are so natural-looking; she really has an eye for colors, to a degree that I find amazing. She doesn't push products, or make me feel silly for wanting to keep it the same style, or (as has happened recently) try something far out... well, relatively-speaking. She will recommend products, if you ask her, that would benefit *you* individually, and she'll explain why. None of the fast-sales-pitch talk. Above all else, Maria has a great sense of humor, and is an interesting person to get to know. I'm lucky to have found her.
Gina, the owner/receptionist/etc., is fantastic, as well. Though she's not a stylist, she always does more than expected; gets appointments when you need them, and gets you anything you need (love the Awapuhi products that I order through her). She's a trip, very funny! They're all very professional, but not at all stuck-up, and as simple as that may sound, it's very important to me.
I drive 45 minutes from my home (or sometimes longer, I live in FishHawk) to have Maria style my hair - and there are many, many stylists within a much shorter distance, but she's that good.
Don't buy these shill reviews. I went there for real. I had long hair that took me a long time to grow out. Thick glossy healthy hair. The owner is a mercenary who only cares about making a buck. I get this green lilttle girl Sudera who does NOT know how to cut hair with a scissors. All she did was use a thinning shears on hair that is NOT course -- I told her, just shape it, I am growing it out. HOW IN THE NAME OF GOD DID THAT TRANSLATE INTO GIVING ME A HEAD THAT LOOKS LIKE A BOWL? HACKING OFF MORE THAN HALF MY HAIR USING THINNING SHEARS -- A RECIPE FOR FRIZZ? THESE PEOPLE COME AND GO, YOU CAN'T COUNT ON ANYONE WITH REAL KNOWLEDGE OF CUTTING HAIR WELL. THE FIRST GIRL AMMIE DIDN'T EVEN SHOW UP FOR THE APPOINTMENT.
UNPROFESSIONAL, LACKING IN EXPERIENCE, MY HAIR JUTS OUT EVERYWHICH WAY. ALL THE HELL I WANTED WAS JUST TRIM THE BOTTOM, SHAPE IN THE SIDES. HOW THE HELL HARD IS THAT?
DON'T GO, DON'T TRUST THESE SHILL REVIEWS.
Fantastic Salon!. I've been going to Bangz for years and love it. My stylist, Neftaly, is a genius with color. I get stopped quite frequently by people wanting to know who does my hair. I've gotten highlights, lowlights, all-over color, hair extensions, etc. I've always been thrilled with the results. Over the years, I've been to the other stylists in the salon when Neftaly was unavailable and I can honestly say I've never had a bad haircut. Gina has cultivated a friendly, relaxing, and professional atmosphere. The staff keeps up with new trends and methods. I recommend Bangz to friends, family, and all the people who compliment me on my hair.

Great Haircuts!!!. I have been going to Bangz for the last 5 years. I use wait until I went back to KY to get my haircuts because I couldn't find a good place in Tampa until I found Bangz. The stylist are all great and the managment is very helpful. Esther has not given me a bad haircut since I have been going and she gives the best head massages. I highly recommend this salon to anyone (and have sent many of friends that love it and keep going back).
Great talented service!. Bangz Salon has not only some of the best talented staff working there in Tampa, but, is a very customer service driven Salon, that is constantly trying to accomodate their clients needs. Their staff is up to date on all current trends and best products to use and all are so friendly like they have known you for years. The owner Gina, is so very customer focused, and runs a very successful business from truly knowing her clients. I highly recommend this salon for any type of service
I have been going to BANGZ for 8 years and have been to about 5 different stylists there. I really like the atmosphere of the salon and it is a friendly place. Prices are competitive for the quality and experience you get in the stylists.
They also serve refreshments including beer and wine which is really nice after a long day at work. I really like the salon and I think you will too. Check it out.
