    Right across the street from the University of Miami, in the poolside courtyard of the Holiday Inn, is the only place in Miami I'll go to get my hair cut.

    I've been going here for several years, probably since 2003 or 2004. Ron is a really great guy and has been cutting hair for decades, and being right across US-1 from the University, he's also up to date on the current styles.

    The prices are super affordable--$15 for a regular men's haircut, or $12 for UM students (and I think faculty and staff too, but don't quote me on that one). It's really convenient for students and parking is free in the Holiday Inn parking lot. Just walk through the lobby and straight out to the pool courtyard, then back to the right for one of the quickest, most affordable, and best-looking haircuts that money can buy.

    Ron is awesome! I'm very particular about the way my fiance's hair looks, and Ron is the only barber I will let touch it. I have literally thrown a fit over the suggestion that he go somewhere else while we were out of town.

    He's very thorough and actually listens to directions from the customer. He knows that "not too short" means not too short! His location is very convenient at the Holiday Inn right across the street from UM. He's cheap - $15 - and quick. And for those of us who sometimes have to accompany our other half, the pool area right outside his shop's door is the perfect place to sit back and relax.

    Guys of the area, do yourselves a favor and go see Ron!

    I just got my first haircut from Ron at Hot Heads. He runs a no-frills barber shop at the poolside courtyard at the Holiday Inn right across the street from the University of Miami. $15 will buy a cut from a friendly, professional guy who's been cutting for decades. He was very attentive, asking constantly if I was happy with the length/style/how things were going, and using that feedback to give me exactly what I was looking for. Also, the other thing that impressed me vs other barber shops in the past is that he asked right off the bat, "scissors or clippers?" (I prefer scissors) where I haven't been so fortunate in the past.

    If you want a pampering salon, or a fancy lounge waiting area, go somewhere else. If however, you want a simple, inexpensive, quality cut. Go check Ron out. Only reason I gave 4 stars is because I do like some of the nicer things you find at a salon or upscale barber shop but am on a tight budget right now. He may change my mind though. I'm definitely going back and he may just win me over and I'll have to change this to 5 stars.

    Ron did an excellent job of shaping up the perpetual mess that is my hair. He asked, in detail, about how exactly I wanted it cut, and checked with me throughout to make sure it was right. He is a consummate professional, not to mention a friendly guy. In this recession we need to support our local small businesses, and at $15, I think there's really no reason not to go to Hot Heads next time you need a trim.

    Ron is one of the best barbers in Coral Gables for men. He's friendly, efficient, and affordable. The last time I was there he charged me $15 for a haircut, to which I added a $3 tip, and he did a great job. Support this local business. Recommended.

    Ron gives a great haircut. At $15.00 I think his price is reasonable. His shop is not fancy but it is unique. There are not many places to get your haircut while you look at the pool (girls in bikinis) in the mirror. I have been getting my hair cut by Ron for over a decade and highly recommend him.

    Great haircuts at an even greater price! I have been heading over to the Holiday Inn for several years to get my hair cut from Ron. Appointments aren't necessary, and there have only been a couple of times that I have had to wait. He is very fast with the scissors, so the wait has never been long. The best part is that you can wait out by the pool and get some sun before you get your hair cut.

    I've been coming here for 15 years and I'll keep coming back until he closes the doors for good! Thanks for all the good times Ron, keep it up!

    I am from out of town and I Yelp'ed for a Barber Shop and found Hot Heads. Ron is the man!!!! This guy can cut some serious hair. He is fast, neat and professional.

    In from way out of town, found Hot Heads on Yelp, drove almost 8 miles to get there, english-speaking barber. Took a second to find it, Back past the pool, accidentally ended up in the hotel kitchen. Really short wait for a walk in haircut Quick and easy relaxing, and a good price! Ron is great! I'm in town for a month probably be back.

    This guy is really nice. He keeps his prices low to be convenient to the college students . Note to reader that the location is actually INSIDE THE HOLIDAY INN which can be confusing for some. He is located by the pool patio.

    Quick in and out - not a second wasted on fancy waiting rooms or anything as such. One chair one friendly barber and a short cut. 10 mins, 15 dollars

    Very good haircuts. Since I came to Miami he was the first person I went to and continue to go back time and time again. Excellent, fast haircuts and he follows closely what you want.

    This is a real barbershop. Not for women. A little bit odd with the location. That being said, I wouldn't go anywhere else.I take my boys to Ron for their haircuts. He also does mine, of course. No nonsense. Gives you exactly what you asked for. Always runs on time. Always does a great job. highly recommend.
