I have been coming to David for almost 2 years now. Honestly he is the best hair stylist I have ever been too. He is experienced and it shows every time I walk out of his Salon. From Keratin treatments to hair color to cuts, he wins as my favorite hair stylist across the board. His products are reliable and they really work. As someone who is terrified of terrible cuts after my own serving of them, David has been my saving grace. I drive 1 hour for his appointment and never leave disappointed. Trust David with you hair!!!

I moved from NY to Florida this past June, it took me a little while to get back on my feet and I neglected my hair. My hair was fried, and my highlights had severly grown out. That being said, David made hair look healthy and beautiful again. He gave me multidimentional highlights that are breathtaking. Best stylist ever hands down. :-)

David is a true professional at his craft. You will not be sorry you tried him, and you won't go anywhere else. He is very high energy, HAHAlarious, and makes you feel like part of the family on your first visit. I think he respects each person's individual style and needs, no matter the age. What are you waiting for?! - book today! Lisa O.

Finding a new stylist when you move to a new area is super stressful and kind of annoying. Who has the time? And it is so personal. Anywhoo, I’m SUPER happy with the way my hair came out. David knows his stuff, and also has a flair of fun which is contagious. You don’t have to worry about mindless chatter. I only ever take the time to write a review of the service was above par. And this was :)
Danielle L.

Had my first appointment with David today and it was a great experience all around. Not only did he highlight and cut my hair perfectly, he also had me cracking up pretty much the entire time with his high energy, fun personality. It's obvious that he loves what he is doing, and I'll definitely be back.

I had been growing my hair out for the past two years and decided it was time for a change. I researched hair stylists in the Tampa Bay area and came across David. Meeting David you come to find a hilarious, easy going, amazing artist. After explain what I wanted David knew exactly what to do and proceeded to give me the sickest haircut possible. If you need to find a hairstylist that will be guaranteed to give you the cut that you desire, then look no further than the RockerStylist himself, David Hensley.

Always the most genuine and fun experience in his chair. Hair is always in the beat of hands and feeling so healthy afterwards. Wouldn’t trust my color with any other artist. Laid Brand has certainly left a mark on my hair care regimen. What David provides is an experience and art. Love ya David!!

David really cares about every customer and helping them to achieve their best look. I’ve been going to David for years now and he is always keeping my look on point. It’s been a big year for me at work. Lots of speeches, presentations, teleconferences, and networking functions. Every day I need to be looking my best. Thank you David for making sure I never need to worry about my look and style! You really are a Rockstar!
John G.
There is NO one other than David that I would have let do my drastic cut! I went from shoulder length hair, no style to a short sassy pixie and I absolutely LOVE it! I've NEVER had so many compliments in my life. I feel like a new woman thanks to him! Without question, flawless talent and genius rocker stylist!
Lisa G.
I moved to Tampa from out of state and David came highly recommended. He has been doing my hair for the last three years and my hair has NEVER looked as great as it does now. I have been to many stylists throughout the years and David is hands down a master at his art, truly the best.

I met David, for the first time, this week and he cut and colored my pixie hair style. David not only did an amazing job, he gave me the BEST hair cut I’ve ever had! He’s so much fun and soooo talented! Thank you, David!!!
Patricia L.
OMG david is the best !!! I drive up from Miami just to get my hair done every 8 weeks with him. No one does blonde hair better . I get nonstop compliments about my hair ..
Michelle J.
I don't even know where to start! I blindly booked my appointment with David based on the reviews online and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! This man knows his way around a head of hair. I came in with scraggly dead bleached ends, not really knowing exactly what I wanted. So, I just let him do his magic and the result is incredible. My hair is fresh and beautiful now. Full highlights and a fresh cut, and now I feel like a new person. I haven't dyed my hair in years, so I was a little reluctant, but now I'm not scared and there's no one else I'd let touch my hair besides David. Great conversation as well! Will definitely be back! <3
Katelyn P.
Took my 4yr old son to see David for his first big boy cut and couldn’t be happier with the results! David was wonderful with my little one. I later overheard my son telling his sister that David was “the awesomest guy in the world”.
Erin M.
David gives you his creative soul in the most genuine and hilarious way. I didn't JUST get a BEAUTIFUL haircut...I had a great afternoon. His line of hair products are amazing.

David along with his wonderful colleague are such an amazing pair of rocker stylist! ! He was very understanding of what I wanted, and helped me achieve the wonderful experience I was looking for with keratin! Not to mention VERY friendly and just wonderful to be around. Definitely found my permanent hair dresser!! - Amanda
Amanda A.
Since moving to Tampa 3+ years ago David is one of the few people who have colored my hair and delivered exactly what I was looking for! My color is beautiful and he was extremely meticulous throughout the entire process of highlighting my long blonde (extremely thick) hair. In addition, he is also hilarious and someone you won't mind sitting 'under-shear' with whether your appointment lasts several minutes or several hours!
Emma T.
Dave is the best!! He did a great job highlighting and fixing my color. He is very creative and knows what is going to look the best for each client. ~Staci

So right around now marks my 3 year anniversary of David L. Hensley rescuing my hair! I was hopeless before his magic fingers got ahold of my broken, over-processed & otherwise lackluster blonde do. I came to him with hair that wouldn't grow, broke off from years of the wrong stylists bleaching me within an inch of my life, box color (yes, hair suicide) and damage (bald spots) from extensions. I also suffer from psoriasis which really hinders hair growth & health in general. Needless 2 say, I was a hot mess express, destination David! He started with using the right color for my hair not using harsh bleach on my baby fine hair. He used Laid Brand products (obviously) and I instantly fell in LOVE with 'Rockin Multi Purpose Oil! The scent alone had me hooked, but my ends were SOFT for the first time in forever! He spritzed me up with Straight 2 Kinky pre-blow dry & the oil & I was astounded at how healthy my hair looked! Fast forward a few years, and about a dozen or so visits to my hair guru, my hair is so healthy that David was able to bring my curls back to life with the use of Fill Me Up texture spray! Who knew I could have my beach waves back that I literally hadn't seen in at least 15 years?!? My hair hasn't been this long since before I started coloring it when I was 23 (14 years ago)....and it just keeps growing! I can't thank you enough, David, for making me feel beautiful again, saving me from years of hair hell & condemning me to a life of extensions for length! I'm telling you, people, these products & his knowledge are incredible! Love you David, my hair thanks you!!!!
Jenna C.
David is fun, fabulous and not to mention fantastic with my hair!! He made my blonde incredible! If you are in or around the Tampa Bay Area, stop and see him! He will absolutely take care of your hair needs!! Thank you David, I love my hair!! ~Kristin

DAVID rocked my highlights and lowlights BEYOND and his keratin treatment is the BEST one I have ever had. He picked the super prettiest shades of blonde that go with my skin-tone. My hair is so soft, shiny and amazing now. THANK YOU, DAVID. BEAUTIFUL. PERFECT. Legit TALENTED ❤️ V.
Valerie H.
Wow I came in today with hair that was fried and a rainbow of about 4 colors. David was the healer of my head. Walked out with healthier hair and so happy that I found a great stylist in Tampa!! Wish I would have taken a before and after. You would be amazed!!!
Susan B.
I also love my hair!!! David took it to a whole new level! I'm getting married in days and the worst fear is having a stylist ruin your hair! Not the case with David. With little detail he knows exactly what you want! Have no fear David is here!!!
Kendra E.
I am a local college student and have been having David cut, color, and style my hair for a few months now, and I am addicted to say the least. As soon as you walk into his salon, your spirit goes through the roof and he makes you feel right at home. If you are looking for a stylist who is personable, affordable & a true professional at every service he offers.. consider David to be your BEST bet. He is a Rock Star and I have nothing but good to say about him and his work!
Kristie O.
OMG, What can I say? Dave is AWESOME. I got a Keratin treatment and Dave did a color, cut, style blowdry.... ALL in under 4 hours! David is truly MY RockStar hair dude!
Kristie O.
I have very thick and wavy hair, difficult to cut. Ive had $15 cuts and $100 cuts and cant seem to get a decent and consistent cut, even after several minutes of explaining exactly what I want. So frustrating! David cuts my hair perfectly every time and I dont have to say a word. His attention to detail and instinctive style are amazing. I now drive from Miami to Tampa whenever I can just to get my hair cut. Don S.
Don S.
I HIGHLY recommend David to anyone looking to feel fabulous inside and out! David's creativity sets him apart from the rest. Whether you want funky or just want a little trim, David will make your hair look AWESOME. Every time I get my hair cut or colored, I get compliments from strangers & friends. You won't be disappointed.
Heather W.
David has made my transition from short to shorter absolutely painless!!! He knows what cut and color works for each individual!!! I look forward to getting my hair cut every time because he makes it more than just another appointment, it's an entire ordeal and experience!!! Thanks David!!!
Shannon H.
I'm probably the pickiest person there can be when it comes to a good haircut. I moved to Tampa 5 years ago from the NE and for about 4 years I went to a different stylist each time, none really impressed me. It wasn't until a co-worker referred me to David, he told me I would love the cut and have fun while getting it done. I said OK and since then have never looked back. I tell him what I want and he makes it look better than I imagined in my head. He's so good that I referred him to my girl who lives in Philly, now she flys down just to get her hair done by him. WHAT CAN I SAY HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING!!!!
Adam R.
I got the Brazilian Keratin treatment done with David. I loved what my hair looked like when he was done, but when it came time for me to finally wash it, I was so scared thinking it would be back to its frizzy, poofy self. I was so amazed to find I could blow dry it in less than 10 minutes (and I have a LOT of hair) and it looked beautiful, straight, and frizz-free! I have gotten nothing but compliments and everyone says how healthy my hair looks! I also had a blast with David while he did my hair. I am soo glad I found him! Thank you so much David and I can't wait for the next I get my hair done by you!
Jessica L.
I had driven by Salon Lofts Many times on my commute. I decided to give it a try, booked online and was impressed by the testimonials left by David's clients. I was nervous, but the testimonials definitely were not just hype. David IS an incredible stylist, and he is funny and personable. He has tons of energy, he gave me the best haircolor I have ever had and fixed a hair problem that 4 previous stylists could not/would not fix. I would highly recommend David to anyone! ~Claire R.

Last Tuesday David did a Keratin Straightening Service for me. He has been trying very patiently to get me to do one for years. I have wavy hair, which usually frizzes out with the humidity. My usual process has been wash/condition, put on product and blow dry, put on more product and flat iron, and then finish off with more product. It was 3 different products that I was using, and the results were temporary. I could leave the house and my hair would already start to curl and frizz. Even if David flat ironed it, by the end of the day the hair would win. Last night I washed/conditioned and then used a leave in conditioner (LAID brand, of course)...blew my hair dry and then drove to Orlando to see Slash at Hard Rock Live. My hair was straight when I left the house...we drove through rain, it was drizzling slightly as we walked through City Walk, we were in a concert hall for 4 hours, we drove home...and my hair looked exactly the same as when I frizz, still straight...and it's so soft and shiney. I am really loving this treatment. I know you said I would David, and you were right. You DO rock ;) Love you! Connie
Connie R.
Relocating to a different state alone can be challenging since you have to find the basics yet integral part of acclimating to a new city - like a hair stylist that takes time to know you, your hair - basically someone you can trust! I found David after 3 different stylist - thank you for the awesome cut - you ROCK!
Tomas H.
David is AWESOME!! He's been doing my hair for a few months and I'm thrilled! Not only does he have an amazing talent, but he provides great service and is very entertaining! :) I really like that he does what is best for my hair, which sometimes isn't necessarily what I think is best. I trust his opinion and follow his advice. I highly recommend David! Janette :)

David has been cutting my hair since I moved here earlier in the year. He fixed my attempts to cover the gray roots myself. He even got a supply of the brand of color used by my previous stylist to match the color exactly. I look forward to my regular visits....David is always entertaining and he definitely has a passion for life and his work. I always leave with a smile and feeling totally pampered. Gale K.

Hensley is a fantastic hair stylist. His experience shows through his work. I have been a ombré for many years and was looking to become a bright blonde on the more natural side and he nailed it. He even went up over and beyond and met me on his day off since I very limited availability. He is professional and fun. You will feel like your talking to a long time friend.
Nicole W.
David truly has a passion for his career. He gives you his full attention during your session. I am so pleased with my hair. When other stylist said it couldn't be done, David took me from almost black to blonde in one setting WITHOUT damaging my hair!!! GO DAVID!!! His products come second to none! I can't wait for our next session!! Thanks again for all of your hard work.
Ashley M.
David is AMAZING!! I absolutely LOVE my cut!! His knowledge and expertise are limitless!! If you haven't let David work his magic on your hair, I feel bad for you!! Can't wait for my next appointment!!
Annette N.
I was a Bit nervous to get my hair cut shorter but David did an amazing job cutting and styling my hair. Will definitely come back for more!
Megan G.
Just relocated to Tampa and finding a new hairdresser that you love is never easy. A friend recommended David and he did a fantastic job on my cut and highlights. He listens, he's full of life, and a pleasure to be around.
Sue M.
So I went into David with what we are going to call Safari stripes in my hair and roots for days.... He was able to restore natural gorgeous beauty back into my thick hair! Pure genius! And who knew that I had some natural curl that would actually hold with some incredible Laid Brand product in it. It definitely means it looks amazing and healthy if your good friends can't recognize you from the back and then cannot stop the compliments! Thank you sooo much David for working some incredible magic with my hair! Shannon V
Shannon V.
David has been cutting my hair since 2006 and he always does an amazing job. Last week he cut my son Charlie's hair for back to school and he rocked it out. Thanks for being the best stylist in south Tampa!
Bobbie K.
I adore David and his keratin treatment skills! I am bi-racial, with extremely curly hair and David knows exactly what to do to tame my mane. I go in with frizzy curls and leave with super soft, silky tresses. Moving here from up north, I paid $300+ for keratin but David sets a fair price that includes a great cut. Plus, he is more than pretty easy on the eyes and has an awesome personality that puts you right at ease everytime you sit in his chair. Will never go to another stylist as long as I live in Tampa!
Cassandra T.
My daughter and I went to David based on yelp reviews, and were not disappointed. He gave style and body to my hair, which I had been bored with for quite some time. My daughter was the real challenge. She has medium-tight curls and has been battling frizz and poofiness for a few years now. I had not been able to find anybody who really knew how not only to tame her locks, but also give us step by step advice on how to maintain at home. Her smile now is priceless - it is so obvious how good she feels with gorgeous shiny curls instead of a frizzy mess. She is also happy to have a plan to keep her hair pretty. David is nice and fun to be around. We also bought his Laid hair mask, which I can tell is a superior product, since we've practically tried them all! He even gave my daughter a couple of hair clips to help her with her mask. He is awesome!
Meagan A.
We love David! I have gotten a ton of compliments on hair cut and color (blonde). My 12 year old daughter also gets her hair cut by David and she gets tons of compliments from her friends, as well.

Where does one begin with a testimonial about David? If you are looking for a radical change or a subtle style he brings both of these options to the table. You can trust that you will get up from the chair feeling like a brand new person with sass and class. Thank you David, for not just creating a masterpiece every time I'm with you, but for allowing us lucky individuals the opportunity to experience your constant enthusiasm for your craft -Danielle WK
Danielle W.
I love going to David for my latest look - as someone who likes to change things up every season - David is the one for me. He is a true artist, takes pride in his work, is creative and the overall style experience is fun, cool and sexy. I feel like his latest masterpiece when I leave. Darlene
Darlene C.
BEST SALON EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD! I'm absolutely thrilled with my hair! I've had cuts & treatments done from New York to Iowa & Arizona and my hair has never felt or looked better. Love the products and cannot wait to go back for a color. David's passion truly shows not only in his work but the environment and experience he brings along with it!
Muffy S.
David was a blessing to me and my hair. After 5 years of having the same stylist do my hair, I had to abruptly find a new stylist...and found David. After only the 1st time with him, he got my blonde near perfect. After the 2nd was PERFECT! No one has ever been able to get my color right that fast...not to mention, he's so very pleasant to be around. Thx David!

I've had my hair cut/colored in LA and NYC by different stylists. What do you do if you are in Tampa and not in one of these other cities? GO to @ David L. Hensley of course, he's great at his craft! Love, love, love my haircut and color by @David L. Hensley.
Betsy B.
I chose David after reading other reviews online. He certainly lived up to the hype. He gave me a great haircut and was cool to talk to. I will definitely be getting my hair cut by him in the future.
Ryan R.
After five mediocre haircuts since moving back to FL from LA last year, I FINALLY found out about David and am back to my rockstar hair self. I liked his vibe immediately, and he came highly recommended, so when I showed him some pictures of color ideas and he said, "I got it, I'm gonna do three colors for the highlights, sound good?", I trusted him enough to say sure and not even ask what colors. After 2.5 hours in the chair, having him expertly highlight and cut my hair while making me laugh non-stop, I emerged hotter than ever with amazing, colorful, sexy hair. People keep complimenting me on both the color and cut. I was used to that in SF and LA so it's such relief to have met someone who can bring that level of quality and style to my hair in FL. He's awesome. If you're cool and like looking hot, go see him and get your hair did right.
Sabannah J.
I have been going to David for close to a year and I have always left extremely satisfied with my haircut. His prices are fair; his schedule covers a variety of times and it is always easy to make an appointment, and his other clients you may meet in passing are all very friendly. David is a very personable guy and your appointments will always be on time. As long as I am in the Tampa Bay Area, David will be my stylist!

David is the best hairstylist in Tampa in my opinion, he is very diverse and is especially good at mens cuts, as a hairstylist myself I know how hard it is to make mens cuts and short hair look flawless and David comes through every time, I wouldn't go to anyone else!! Jason S.

It was such a treat to just sit back and be pampered by a handsome guy with real talent and a great outlook on life. I left the salon with a spring in my step, bounce in my locks and a huge smile on my face. I am recommending him to you (dear reader) and all my friends!
Adriane J.
I first met David for the Brazilian Keratin Treatment several months ago. I had not cut my hair in ages, and was terrified of the change of going from long natural curls to short strait hair. David made the process very easy, took the stress out of the situation with his personality and professionalism, and made me feel great with the results. His team (including Kristen) are excellent stylists, and very informative about the process and care. When I got home it was easy to maintain my salon look effortlessly.

I first met David for the Brazilian Keratin Treatment several months ago. I had not cut my hair in ages, and was terrified of the change of going from long natural curls to short strait hair. David made the process very easy, took the stress out of the situation with his personality and professionalism, and made me feel great with the results. His team (including Kristen) are excellent stylists, and very informative about the process and care. When I got home it was easy to maintain my salon look effortlessly. I am going back for the follow-up and will continue to trust my hair to David. He is the best!

David is an amazing, talented hairstylist. He always takes the best care of me and is ver flexible with my schedule. He is as creative as they come and I always have a new, unique cut and color. I have done quite a bit of damage to my hair and he isnalways conscious and very careful not to cause any breakage, I have noticed that it is even more healthy. He uses great quality products and I always leave his chair feeling amazing. He is full if personality and raw talent.

I came to David with frizzy/curly and overly highlighted hair. I walked out with a rich color and smooth and relaxed hair from the Kertain treatment. I have struggled with terrible curls for over 20 years and I can finally say that I can manage my hair. For anyone who is looking for a great stylist who is willing to listen and work with you, he's your man!!

David's been cutting my hair for 8 years. I wouldn't think of using anyone else. In addition to a great stylist, he is an expert at men's color. More importantly, I consider him a dear friend. Lou

David is great at what he does. I've always walked away happy with my cut and he works with me whenever I have any questions. I definitely recommend him.

Just had my first cut with David. Been a traditional haircut guy forever and wanted to get a cut more current and different. It's tough to find a guy that can help another guy pick out a good cut and be honest if it works or not. Let's be honest most ladies will tell you it will look great. David did an excellent job and I was super happy with the cut. Not to mention the products he has are amazing. Highly highly recommend this man for any other guy looking to make his head of hair look the best!

I came to David today after breaking up with my hair dresser of 10 years. My hair definitely was looking like a hot mess...which included but was not limited to tiger stripes,fried ends and an all over brassy looking blonde. After a few hours of pure entertainment and lots of laughs, I walked out with my hair looking better than it has looked in years. Blonde highlights definitely takes talent and thats what I got today!!! ---SARA Q.

Finally.... a stylist that listens to my requests and makes it happen. David is creative and very cutting edge (no pun intended). He listened to my concerns, we talked about options without trying to talk me out of my original idea. He tweaked it and made it happen. Would I go back? Yes indeed!
Marlene V.
After having the same stylist for almost 18 years, I was afraid I would never be able to find someone that would really bring me hairstyle to life. Not only did I enjoy my time with you there, but you really did make me happy with the cut. I haven't been able to feel this way about my hair in over a year. Thank you brother, I'll be seeing you around. Jery Ver

I just moved here from NYC and went in search of a stylist that could handle very thick curly hair and I found David! He is wonderful - very friendly and a delight to be around. His expertise is apparent from the very moment he starts. My hair looks wonderful! He truly is a Rock Star and I highly recommend David to anyone.

David has been cutting my hair for 5 years. Every time I come to the salon, I know I can count on a great time and a great look. If you need a new stylist, try David. You won't be disappointed.

I moved to the Tampa area in September and was anxious about finding a hairstylist that could work with my very thick, wavy hair. Not only does David get my cut right every time, my color has never looked better. I recommend him highly!
Jennifer Z.
I asked him to turn my brunette to blonde in one session and he did it - what a gorgeous blonde it is! Had a lot of fun at the appointment yet found David very knowledgeable. I will be back for keratin next week and highlights in 4 weeks. David you have a client for life. Thanks for making me sexy again! Tara

David IS the Rock Star stylist. He took my blah hair from "hmmm" to "AMEN"! He has creativity, originality, remarkable perception, and exceptional personality!

I love a stylist who can be professional and personable at the same time. David is this. Not only was my hair cut fantastic, the experience was just as good. His layback bearing is encapsulated within years of experience that manifests with an amazing haircut. I would highly recommend him. Feel good. Look good. Be good.

All I can say is AMAZING!!! Went from platinum blonde to brunette...LOVE, LOVE,LOVE it!!! And the keratin hair is now shiny, soft, and straight!

Not lying, David used to do my hair when he was with another salon, I've since moved to Chicago and will come back to Tampa to have him do my hair. He's ridiculously well-connected in the community and extremely talented when it comes to color. I haven't ever had another cut/color that compares since I came to David.

I was told about David from a buddy of mine and I'm glad I went and made an appointment with David. I didn't know what to do with my hair and beard, but David had no problems with it. He gave me a cut and style that I'm going to keep coming back for. He's my top hairstylist from here on out. Thank you David!

A friend recommended David and I booked online at which was very convenient. They sent David a text and a reminder email to me. I was very impressed with David who is a true artiste! It was a quite a magical experience as he transformed my hair. What I like about David is he is an expert at his craft-cutting, coloring and designing your hair- and he also listens to what you want as well. I left the salon smiling and I looked amazing:) A very fun and entertaining experience! Book your next appointment now with David, I believe you will be very happy you did. Kymberly T.

If you want to have fun at the salon this is the guy for you!!! Not only does he do great work but he is a blast to be around!!! I promise you will look fabulous.

I’ve been coloring, cutting, and styling my hair with David since 2000. He’s colored my hair making me a light or dark brunette, given me highlights, golden blondes to platinum blonde and most recently Ruby Red! He consistently cut my spiral curly hair in a way that allowed my curls to bounce and come alive. Anyone that has curly hair knows how hard it is to find someone that can give your curls the right cut without compromising your length or the natural curl pattern. About a year ago I committed to wearing my hair straight and David gave me BANGS! Big deal for someone that’s never been able to rock them because of curls. David’s techniques and creativity are just the beginning of an explosive and gratifying hair experience. I’m also a huge fan of the Laid products like the Mo’Rockin Oil and the Luscious Locks Mask. David is truly an artist and you’ll be happy you gave him a try.
