What makes you special?
Im always striving to learn more and to always keep my guests happy. I will listen to what my guests want and if I feel theres a better option for them, I will suggest it. I love to laugh and have fun behind the chair.
I don't go to salons often, but when I do I want high quality and a fair price. This is exactly what I got at the Darren Pena Salon & Spa. I literally left the salon 20 minutes ago and just HAD to Yelp about my wonderful experience!! Holly cut and blew out my hair. She took me from long, limp, straggly hair to a fun and flirty cut with lots of volume and bounce! I am so thrilled!!! Everyone was very nice-no snobs here! And they offer you a drink, they have tons of magazines, the salon is clean and trendy, and they have a wide variety of hair products (Redken and Pureology).
Holly was so great--nice, funny, very personable and stylish! I will DEFINITELY be going back to Darren Pena to let her not only cut, but also color my hair.
I am new to Tampa and this salon is really close, I am so pleased that a salon I randomly picked for it's proximity is likely going to become one of my favorite places to be!!
