"I've cut my own hair since high school. But for my wedding, I decided to get it professionally cut by G at Carnaby St. He also trimmed my beard which I am quite particular about. It was the best haircut I ever got. Exactly what I wanted. A great haircut without looking like I just came from the barber. My fiancée joked that my beard looks so good, I might be stealing her attention at our wedding! Thank you for the great work G."

"I recently moved to Florida and the hard water made my hair feel heavy and stringy. I got a water filter and tried 3 different shampoos and conditioners but nothing was working. G and Rachel treated my hair and explained which products to use, how to use them, and why. My hair feels great again and I love my highlights and cut!"
— Rachel Kasold
“I met Mary recently though a women’s business group and she very knowledgeable about how to cut and color my hair- which can be fussy. A good hair stylist is so hard to find for my type of hair. Mary gave me a fresh new cut with highlights that were just what I wanted! She is very professional and helpful with my color and products for me. It’s always a pleasure when I go to Carnaby St!”
“Mary always does my hair - and a fabulous job at that! She has brought me dark, blonde, and everything in between. She is thoughtful in planning your color, cut, and style, and you will always leave feeling brand new. Highly recommend booking with her!”
– Amanda W.

“Mary is fantastic! She always makes my hair look great and does it with a lot of care. She listens and makes sure I have the best experience possible. I always leave feeling fantastic, and I highly recommend booking with her! It’s always a wonderful experience when I go in. You can tell everyone there loves what they do! G, Renee, Brea, Allie, and Mary all make me feel so welcome while I’m there! Going in to get my hair done is always a joy.”
“We recently moved here from Atlanta. Everyone here is so nice and good at what they do!! Mary is awesome and she always fixes me up perfectly. Always love my cut and color. I highly recommend Mary and the staff here!!”
– Leslie R.
“I have been coming here regularly for a little over a year and they take such great care of me. Mary is as personable as she is skilled and I always leave very happy with what we have done. She suggested putting rose gold highlights in at one of our appointments and the next appointment we made it happen and I was obsessed! Even when I told them I was moving they offered to help me find a new salon in my new city. Everyone here goes above and beyond.”
– Christine B.
“Excellent service, stylists, products… all of the above! G and Renee have years of experience and training that cannot be surpassed. They and their staff always treat my husband and I (and our hair) like gold!”
– Diane L.
“After 10 months, I could not be happier with both Mary and the salon. I moved back to St Pete and am more than happy to make the drive every 8 weeks Their products are awesome and fairly priced as well. Original review: After a year of home coloring and no haircut, I booked my first appt. here based on the reviews. Mary Litz did a fantastic job on both color and cut. I could not be more pleased. I was in for 4 hours as there was a LOT to do. Pricing was very reasonable, especially for the length of time I was there. Mary is very personable and really listens. Highly recommend.”
– Lynda M.
“I have been a client for about a year. Mary is my colorist and G (one of the owners, along with his wife, Renee) cuts my hair. The professionalism is exceptional. Service is excellent. My hair is stronger than ever. Love this salon. Recommend to everyone.”
– Ani M.
“I’ve been going to Mary for over a year now, I started going to her after the first half of covid happened and I had really botched up my hair with box dyes. I went from hating my hair to loving it, I can go to Mary with any hair style that I might want - which I do change my mind frequently and Mary always finds a way to achieve them. She’s amazing and you know she loves her job because of just how welcoming and caring she really is.”
– Michele Tilka
“If you are looking for a different kind of salon experience, than the usual, go see the team at Carnaby St. Hairdressers. They foster an inclusive, transparent and welcoming environment. I started going to see them almost 3 years ago when I had severely damaged hair from bleaching and have watched them grow into the bustling salon they are today. You would be hard-pressed to find a more authentic, welcoming and skilled group of artists! They are growing their online community and have events where you can go to learn more about your hair, and they take the time and care to show you how to manage / style your hair whether curly or straight or somewhere in between. My hair stylist is Mary and she has helped me nourish and grow my hair into the hair of my dreams! Mary always understands the assignment and she delivers top notch styling, color and cuts! I genuinely could not dream of a better stylist! While all the stylists are top notch at Carnaby, Mary fosters that welcoming environment that makes you want to return again and again! If you do any cosplay or Halloween costuming, they can help you create the look you want! Stylist Bree did the beautiful styling for EDC Orlando for me last year!”
– Cher Coffey
“Great place, staff and owners are very friendly and I would recommend anyone to try them out.”
– Michael M.
“G and the team are incredible!!! Won’t get my hair cut anywhere else!”
“Allie was my hairstylist, and she helped me achieve my desire for a super light trim– I wanted to walk out with my ends feeling fresh without losing length. She totally understood and took the time to make sure she was only cutting off the exact amount I felt comfortable with. She was also super warm and friendly and had a great convo!
My time at Carnaby’s was a little bright spot in my day, and being new to Tampa, I’m excited to have an amazing go-to salon now. Thanks so much, everyone!!”
– Lisa Fiorvante
"Today was my first time at Carnaby’s, and everyone was so welcoming and attentive!! I felt seen and heard, like everyone truly cared about what I wanted without any pressure to do something differently."
“I had the most pleasant experience at this salon! The atmosphere was nice and all of the ladies working during my visit were wonderful. The booking process was easy and I was more than pleased with my haircut. I will definitely be returning and would recommend this salon to anyone!”
“WOW… I LOVE My Hair!!! Brea is a Hair Stylist ROCKSTAR!!! From the moment I stepped into Carnaby St. I felt confident I had found my my new salon as everyone greeted me with such a warm welcome in an inviting environment. I instantly loved Brea’s bright & beautiful personality and appreciated her patience and attentiveness as I explained my hair history and what I was looking to accomplish. She not only gave me the hair cut, color and style I was sooo desperately hoping for but she far surpassed what I had imagined!!! I not only left the salon feeling Absolutely Fabulous but Refreshed and as if she had taken Years Off!!! Brea made my entire experience so very enjoyable as she is a true sweetheart who has such a love & passion for her work. If you are in search of the Perfect Salon & the Perfect Hairdresser… look no further because in Brea you will have found her:)))
Thank you sooo much Brea & all of the Awesome Carnaby St. Family”

“Carnaby St. is a hidden gem! I was searching for a new salon, and Carnaby St. came up. It’s on a stretch of Tampa Road I don’t often travel, so I wasn’t aware of it. After reading reviews and their philosophy, I was eager to schedule an appointment. I had the pleasure of working with Mary, who is an absolute delight, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the amazing results of my hair (highlights, cut). I also had the opportunity to meet Brea and Renee while I was there, and I loved how close the team was, how welcome I felt, and the overall vibe of the salon was great. Highly recommend!”
