My Favorite HC Stylists (South & North Florida Winners)


Posted by on

Our Florida winners for the "My Favorite Stylist" contest are: Kimberly Monfet from our Crossroads Marketplace salon in south Florida and Cicely Powell-Hodge from our Hunter's Creek salon in north Florida. (And for an explanation of the judging, please go to our blog from April 25.)

: Kimberly Monfet joined Hair Cuttery in July 2010 after working at several privately-owned salons. The mature 21-year-old stylist says that working at HC is refreshing. "I absolutely live, eat and breath doing hair," Kimberly says, "and I LOVE working here!" She believes in WOW Service saying, "You have to stop and listen to your clients because they are always trying to tell you something. And, like my dad always says, 'When you make someone happy, they make you happy.'" Kimberly says that people come to her when they're not sure about what they want. "I listen very carefully to my clients," she says, "and I try to give them not only what they want but what I think will work best for them." Be sure to check out Kimberly's personal Facebook page at MONFET-STYLE. Now, here's what some of Kim's clients had to say about her:

Even with the distance of a two-hour drive, I always look forward to arriving in Ms. Monfet's chair. And that's because she not only delivers superior results every time, she also has the energy and passion for her craft that few others seem to have. If I ever have any questions, Kim will take the time to explain (on my level) while keeping the integrity of my hair through the chemical process. And living in a small town hasn't kept Kim from making a HUGE impact on everyone from high schoolers to elders. Can you tell that I'm a believer?

Kimberly is easily the most passionate person I've ever met. She is always excited and passionate about her job. She's great coming up with new styles and I've never heard of anyone leaving unsatisfied. And she always goes over how to use the products she recommends. Why else is she great? She has received personal recognition from Vidal Sassoon because she was the first stylist to make the Dean's List at the Paul Mitchell school in Orlando, graduating with cutting and coloring honors. In short--she rocks!

Kimberly has dedication--a true passion for hair--and she has come a long way in a short period of time. And, I don't see her slowing down any time soon. She is a great listener and she is truly making a difference with each client that sits in her chair. Besides, the lady know how to make somebody look damn good!

: Cicely Powell-Hodge has been with Hair Cuttery for nearly seven years. Cicely, who considers herself an artist at heart, is also a certified Redken color specialist and a member of the Style Squad. Says Cicely, "I like to make people smile and feel good about themselves. And the key to providing clients with what they want is listening. You have to be open and eager to please your clients." We asked why clients continue to come to her, Cicely replies, "My clients come to me when they want color extensions or crazy colors in their hair, when they want to jazz things up, when they want something edgy." Check out a sampling of her work at "Cicely's Artistry" on Facebook. Now, here are a few of her clients talking about what they like about Cicely:

I have never left a salon completely satisfied until I met Cicely! I even flew from New Jersey to Florida once just to get my hair cut by her. Quite simply--she is the best!

We are truly blessed and grateful to have found Cicely about four and a half years ago. Since then, we've never gone to another stylist. Cicely definitely caters to all hair types and really knows her stuff. Within my family of five, we have ALL hair types/textures and it's really hard to find someone who can take care of everyone. Cicely can! In fact, my family only trusts Cicely with their hair. Wherever she is, we will travel, no matter the distance because she's not only our stylist, she's a part of our extended family. Can you tell, we're customers for life!

I am impressed with her attention to detail and the way she makes me feel like my satisfaction is her personal goal when I'm in her chair. The hair wash is relaxing and soothing, I love how she massages my scalp during the shampoo. Best of all, I get compliments when I leave the salon. Cicely is--hands down--the best stylist I've ever had in my life.
