The three-chair Salon Serenity, located at Turnberry Ocean Colony in Sunny Isles Beach, may be small in size, but its reputation is huge. Nearly 70 unsolicited customer comments on the salon’s website give it a perfect five-star rating.
“A beautiful location and beautiful work,” writes one enthusiastic client. “I have never left there without a smile and a great haircut. My search for a stylist ended when I found them.”
“Stephanie and Carol are the best,” says another. “I found them about five years ago and have stayed with them ever since. I highly, highly recommend them to everyone.”
“After seven years in Florida, I finally found the perfect salon,” writes a third. “Love the salon, the atmosphere and the attention you get.”
WHAT’S THEIR SECRET?
“We’re not like a factory,” says owner and professional hair-stylist, Stefanie Galiardo. “We concentrate on helping clients look their very best with the assistance of friendly, caring and talented professionals. The services we offer are the kind you’d expect to find at a world-class salon, in an atmosphere emphasizing personal attention to detail.”
Residents and non-residents alike, Galiardo says, get the best of care from an impressive team.
In addition to Galiardo, Salon Serenity experts include noted colorist Carol Romero; acclaimed stylist and colorist Louis Dorado; Amanda Brady, hair extension specialist, and Alexandra Testa, a manicurist specializing in both manicures and pedicures. An experienced assistant rounds out the boutique salon’s top-rated team.
“Part of what makes us unique,” Galiardo says, “is that everyone on staff has at least 15 years of experience in Aventura and South Beach.”
