I had my hair done here by Donna and she did such an amazing job! But then she came in on a day she was going to take off and did my daughter's hair and did such a good job my twelve year old son even called it amazing! She even showed her how to style it. Just an awesome experience and quite reasonable! We will definitely keep seeing Donna Michaels. And if you need a great manicure see Sun. Everyone at the salon was was warm, friendly, and seem to really take pride in what they do. Thank you Donna and Sun for taking great care of my girl and making her birthday extra special!


Being from Canada and vacationing here in the area, I decided I was in desperate need of a hair stylist when I decided to cut my long hair into a short bob. I searched the net and found Carrie. What a lovely lady! She listened to my request and I showed her some pictures before she began cutting 5 yrs of growth off my head. Once done the cutting, she tweeked it to my liking and I left a new woman. So very happy with this easy wash and go effortless new do. Thank you so much Carrie! You are wonderful and I look forward to seeing you once again before I leave for home. Once back in Florida next year, you are my "go to" girl!

I love this salon, for year I looked for a place where I could trust they will do exactly what I want... I found it. Christina Helms does an excellent job and I always get a great treatment and very well done job.


I just returned home after having the BEST Color and Hair cut I have ever had... I am from Pennsylvania, and was very leery as most woman are about trusting just anyone with their hair. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience, Carrie is AWESOME!! She did a beautiful job, took her time, and had a personality to boot..WOW..she has a client for life..exceeded my expectations!, to say the least!!..now if finding a good man was so easy..lol...5 stars for sure.

Years of doing my own hair coloring from grocery store dye kits finally caught up with me! I have dark roots and dye my hair medium blonde. I wanted a change and tried for a platinum blonde. After two days crying and not leaving home with my bright yellow and orange hair I called A Select Salon for help on a Saturday afternoon at 1PM. It was one of the few salons on Google that showed they were still open. I was referred to Donna Michaels as the corrective colorist with years of experience. Me, my bandana, and long hair rolled in a bun were told to come right in. I left in tears for a great reason! Donna saved my hair! She fixed my bad dye job, cut, and styled my hair. She is a hidden gem in Port Charlotte that explained to me how things had gone wrong with my dye job and how it happens. All without making me feel like the idiot I felt like. I wanted to save some easy monew dying my hair myself. In future, this gal is going to A Select Salon for my hair and a nice chat making it feel like a girls day. A++ service!

I have gotten so many complaints and I will definitely fly back every 4 months she will be my stylists for now on. Thanks again Carrie

I don't normally write reviews or give written testimonials but after my recent 1st experience with stylist, CARRIE, I just have to share and rave a little. I'm 67 years old and have always had issues with my hair and never been completely satisfied with the way it looked. Today I can honestly say I have never been more pleased with a haircut than I am with the one I received a week ago by the skilled hands of Carrie. My husband agrees that it's the best haircut ever (and that's saying a lot!) It's one thing to be happy when you leave Carrie's chair....another when you're still happy a week later! Going back in a month for color...can't wait to see the results! Carrie....you're the BEST!!!

My first visit with Donna Michaels went fabulous,she was kind,listened to what I wanted and did a awesome job.
I recently moved to Florida from Nh and had to leave my most cherished friend and hair stylist.he made sure I always looked my best,so I was very nervous looking for someone as great and I got lucky.Thank you Donna,a forever client.

Thank you for my new hair! Although you didn't have silver the color turned out very nice! So far I like the cut. Will have to let you know when I straighten it and the stuff you put in it, no frizz!!! Thank you for all the time and hard work you put into my hair today!! I love it <3!


A Select Salon has been my favorite place to go for hair and nails for 4 years now! Classiest place in SW Florida!! 5 stars!!

Almost 2 years ago, I was in your salon for a cut and color. I ended up with a great stylist who doesn't appear to be on your roster any longer. I think her name was Michelle? I got my hair cut, colored a shade of black, and foiled about 5 chunks of hair a violet color. It was awesome. I'd like to do it again. About a year ago, I was reminded of your salon when I got a coupon in the mail (a postcard?) for 50% off services, but I wasn't in the market for anything at that time. Now, I am. I'd like to have something very similar done. My hair is long, thin (I think!), but has a bit of curl. I'd like it layered, colored, and chunks put in again. The only thing I wasn't thrilled with last time was that the black dye in my hair stained stuff...shower, towel, bedding...for a good 2 weeks after my appointment. Is there something I can do to prevent that? Thanks! Also...I'd like to have my brows waxed. I'm not doing a very good job of it. I still want brows...not pencil thin ones, though. 😀 I remember that last time I was in, I was considering asking for Tania Tipping...because I liked her hair in the pic. Her profile also says she does French layering...which I think I'd like a lot.
Please advise. Thanks much! Lisa


Just left the salon, haircut with Carrie, awesome, I LOVE it ! Different salon concept it's just what I was looking for. Will definitely be back ! Thanks

I went to Beckie last week for a completely new style. I had medium-long hair and was looking to change up the style. I decided on a medium length bob, which I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve never done. Beckie did an AWESOME job!! I was nervous to make such a change, but it looks beautiful! Thanks, Beckie! See you in a few weeks!


Donna did an amazing job with my hair! The color was exactly what I asked for and she cut it perfect! Will definitely be back!

Donna Michaels   

My husband and I are from Ohio and came down to the Englewood area to escape the cold weather and snow. I hated the idea of trying to find someone who would be able to cut and style my hair to my liking. I searched for reviews of salons in the Port Charlotte area. A Select Salon had many great reviews and stylist to choose from. I called to make my appointment with Carrie Aiesi. She was very accommodating to my schedule, and did a great job on cutting my hair. She did such a great job, that my husband and daughter also went to her. Thanks Carrie for everything - we'll miss you. See you next year!

Carrie is an amazingly talented colorist & haircutter! and she's a cool chick as well! 🙂 For her type of quality work I've had to travel to Sarasota - not anymore! 🙂


I have known AnhTuan for eight years and have been very pleased with his services. He told me how great gel nails were and I have had them ever since. He is also a good friend to our family.

I am new to the area and needed a colour and cut. Donna Micheals was recommended to me. I am truly pleased with my colour and style. Donna assessed my hair and suggested a colour which was exactly what I wanted. I have a great style cut which I am very pleased.
Thank you Donna for your expertise and experience. I highly recommend Donna.
