Save your money.. Don't go to Forte! – I have been a member of the RDV for years, and I have always used Forte to treat myself to a pedicure, get a trim, and purchase my hair products. I stopped by earlier this month, but I changed my mind about getting any services done after I arrived. The people inside didn't say hello to me, one of the employees glared at me while on their cell phone, and then I realized that they no longer carried Redken! No one talked to me or even bothered to make eye contact with me. There used to be a fun, warm energy and now it's cold, sterile and unfriendly. There didn't seem to be one customer inside, as most of the employees were standing outside. I will have to find a different place that carries my Redken hairspray and treats me like a valued customer. I'm dissappointed that the staff was rude to me because I always had a good experience before. I'm not sure all of the people that work there are rude, but I certainly wouldn't want to get anything done by the people I encountered when I walked in. I would be afraid they would mess up my hair on purpose! I'm not sure what happened there or why it's so different, but I will NOT be returning.
Great staff :) – Just moved to Orlando, needed to find a replacement salon asap and i came across this gem! The service was great, I had a lovely stylist but don't remember her name! Was treated very good, felt very pampered at this salon while getting a cut.
Havent tried any of their other services, but definitely going to try it out soon as I was impressed by the quality of service!
Very happy!!! – The only person I trust with my hair is Olesia! She's always so professional, fun to talk to, sweet, and oh so stylish!! Thanks again.
Love this place now!!!! – Yesterday I received my third haircut. Now, I'm a girl who has felt her entire life that she was cursed to never have good looking hair. She changed all that! She is amazing and she also teaches me what products to use so that I can achieve the same great look at home. She always makes me feel like I'm her only client with the time, care, and attention she pays. She remembers who I am, what we did last time, and then takes great care when doing the cut & style. At other salons, I always felt like I was being rushed in & out, but she changed that. She still gets me out in a reasonable amount of time, but also makes me feel important & that she is taking great care to make sure my hair cut is perfect. Thank you Olesia your the best!!!!
:D So go, get your hair cut or colored!!
Very Pleased!!!! – I was recently referred to Forte by a friend, and am so happy I followed her advice!!! I didn't know what I wanted to get done at first, but after consulting with the stylist, she had a few suggestions, (allover black color) that I was a bit worried about it since ive never had black, but decided to try anyway. Im glad she knew what she was doing,my hair turned out beautiful! I don't know what she did to make it so shiny and bouncy but I was very impressed! Not only did I get exactly what I wanted, my stylist Olesia was very polite and cheerful and talked me through it all. I was very impressed with how smoothly my experience at the salon went and would definitely recommend coming here! I started getting compliments on my hair as soon as I walked out the door! Staff was very professional and experienced. Ask for Olesia!
Forte DOES suck!!!! – I've been going to Forte for over 2 years and have always had a great experience. However the last time that I went to get my hair done, apparently they have a new owner and switched to paul mitchell? Well.. let me tell you, it was the WORST experience I have ever had. The staff seemed ungenuine and snotty, and the stylist that I was with took over 5 hours to do my color! I went in wanting highlights and he said "dimentional color" would more fit me.. so I went with it. But after 5 HOURS of sitting there and my hair looking nothing but one solid color (not to mention it cost me $220!!!!!!!), I now know that this "New Forte" will not be seing me or my money again! I HIGHLY recommend not to go to this salon if you actually want your hair done well and for a reasonable price!!
Horrible experience both times – If I could give it NO stars I would. I was assurred I was getting a top notch hairdresser who knew what she was doing. I left there looking brassy as can be, some color here, some other color there, and out over 150.00 for the misery and waste of hours of my life! I hate that place and I would advise that NO ONE EVER go there for a color. This is not the first time I had a really bad experience at Forte. I gave them the benefit of the doubt but now I see that they still have low standards as in who they hire and high prices for no good reason whotsoever. I guess their motto is if you act like a snobby bitch and treat your customer like they dont know anything and do whatever you want to do with their hair without their consent, then you can take the sucker for a ride and laugh all the way to the bank too. Just because you pay more for something does not mean you are getting any better of a service. I had a dye job done once at a school and it cost 50 bucks and was better by far than the crap work they do at Forte. I have photographic proof backing up this very strong opinion. I STRONGLY ADVISE THAT ANYONE CONSIDERING GOING HERE, GO ELSEWHERE!
Best Facial – Betti Ann gives the best facials in Orlando. She can make you feel like your on vacation and in another world. She takes care of your face and I always feel like i like 10 years younger when I leave there.
Worst Salon experience EVER!!! – When I get my hair done I am the pickest person, I will not just go anywhere. So when I heard that Forte was a nic e salon, I thought I would give it a shot. Not only was my experience horrible, but it is extremely over priced, the staff is incompetent, and the use of time was ridiculous. It is all about the profit...how many people one stylist can fit in the day...not satisfaction. I would never reccomend this salon to anyone!! Supercuts could have done a better job!!
What A Team – I recently had a Full Day Escape at Forte and what a treat! I have had services from some of the best resorts in the world and while it is on the smaller side, my experience was great. The staff was friendly and made me feel comfortable. I will return here for all of my skin care needs. my stylist was very knowledgeable and after going to the same stylist for 8 years, I will be making the move to Forte from here on.
