What They're Saying!


"I hired Doyle, my friend and stylist, for my wedding. As well, we have worked together for years on several editorial and promotional projects. His make-up application is exquisite and his knowledge of hair care and style is impeccable and always appropriate for the occasion. As well as being very professional; Doyle always makes you feel comfortable in his presence as well as he is a great person who genuinely, attentively listens to your needs. "


 "I absolutely LOVE Doyle's hair care products! I have fine, dry hair that is really hard to manage. Doyle's products don't weigh my hair down or dry it out even more. My favorites are the Blow Foam for volumizing, the silver can/Dial up Versatile Hold Hairspray and the Thermal Protectant. Thank you Doyle for being the expert you are and taking such good care of me!"

First off - as I have stated before -  I LOVE your products and I have clients interested in them as well. So we will need to talk about how I go about placing orders and ect. Also, do have back bar sized options for your shampoos and conditioners?

Below is my feedback on your products:

Hair paste has a firm hold, yet is pliable enough to move and re-shape as the day goes on. It is very difficult to find a hair paste that exhibits these qualities - most are too heavy, too oily, or too light of hold for what most clients are looking for.

Smooth & strong spray- light and fresh scent, is a great spray for all hair types. Ive noticed it is a nice de-tangler and is a great addition for any client to have in their choice of daily products.... same goes for the healthy hair complex and detangler, both are well liked and have left the hair with more shine than before.

Blow foam root booster - great volume response. Doesn't leave the hair sticky or stiff like most products in this category do. I liked to spray right at the root, as well as in my hands and run it though their hair to give that extra fullness through the mid-strand and ends.

Thermal Protector - Another impressive product, I typically stay away from these sprays because they have left the hair stiff and/or sticky. This is not the case with your thermal protector, and the scent is really nice.

Shine repair laminating gel - One of my very favorites. I can run this through any hair type at the end of my styling service and it leaves the hair soft, shiny, and smooth whether I have just blow dried, or flat ironed, or polish with a few waves or curls. I use it on EVERYONE.  Beautiful results on everyone.

Elixir - adds shine and strength.

Smoothing gel - Ive used it on a clients ranging from weak to strong curl patterns. The weak curl patterned clients typically prefer their hair blown out straight and the smoothing gel made the blow out a lot easier and in return added so much shine to the hair. When I used on a strong curl patterned client, it added a smooth and silky finish without weighing the hair down and didn't leave the hair "crunchy" BIG bonus for curly clients.  

Volume and Hold gel - I have never used gel as a styling product for my women, I had given gel a bad rap for being heavy and leaving the hair sticky. I only used gel on my male clients.  I decided to test out your gel on my lady clients, and I was amazed how everything I experienced in the past didn't happen with your gel. It added just the right amount of volume.

Hairspray - LMH options are really cool - something that is a really neat perk to your hair spray.  It isn't necessarily my "Go To" for hairspray tho have been overall happy with the results.

Instant conditioner - says it all in its name - its "instant" with results. It leaves the hair smooth and tangle free.

Moisture Shampoo - Has a rich lather and extreme clean feel to it, yet hydrating the hair all at the same time.

Re-hydrating Conditioner and Shampoo- a very nice pair that compliment each other. The perfect go to for most clients.

 When you have people stopping you in the parking lot to ask where you get your hair cut, you know you’ve got a good thing going on. This happens to me with increased frequency since last December, when I began going to Doyle Designed.

It started when I came across a coupon for $10.00 off any Doyle Designed service. I went to Doyle’s website and was intrigued enough by the content that I decided to use the site’s Contact Us form to see if I could get an appointment. My experience has been that many small businesses have Contact Us forms on their websites, but few actually respond when you do contact them that way. So I was pleasantly surprised when Doyle emailed me back the same day! We set up an appointment, and that began a relationship that has developed into sort of a monthly brainstorm-and-beauty session that benefits both of us.

Doyle is very creative, very kind, and very involved in his community, so we spend time talking about all sorts of wonderful projects he has in process. I offer input on his website and blog (go ahead and subscribe!), write occasional marketing letters for him, ask about the book his sister is writing, and share insights about social media. He puts me in touch with people he knows who need writing help, gives me networking ideas, and shares stories of business promotions that have worked well for him. Not only do I enjoy having a fellow creative professional outside my own industry to exchange ideas with, I love getting a consistently good haircut every time! Doyle doesn’t try to make me into a high-maintenance, traffic-stopping, product-dependent glamour-girl; he just gives me a nice cut that flatters my face, fits my busy lifestyle, and lasts until I can get in to see him again the following month. Thank you, Doyle!

I love Doyle Sims! He is my hair guru! My Sultan of Tresses. My hair god! Doyle Designed hair products have changed my life.

Before I started seeing Doyle, my ends and hairline were brittle, my haircuts wouldn't last more than three weeks before my ends were jagged and split and the stylist I was seeing would miss patches of hair during my the relaxer. Doyle's relaxers are thorough, his products keep my hair healthy, my haircuts last until my next cut and his advice is genius.

Some of the products I use are the thermal protectant, smoothing gel, shine repair and final shine. I can\'t say enough about Doyle Sims and his Doyle Designed products. They've changed my life! My hair has NEVER looked better.

 Even on my bad hair days, someone asks - "who does your hair?"

Need a t-shirt, with an arrow pointing up, stating "DOYLE DID IT!"

Doyle is never in a hurry, always talks to you about what you want, makes fabulous suggestions - then works absolute magic.  Treat yourself to the best, see Doyle!

I, reluctantly, made and appointment with Doyle about 7 years ago.  I had long, soft, beautiful blond hair, almost down to my waist, and a spiral perm.  Actually, my hair was damaged, over processed, dry, various shades of gold to pale yellow, and split. I didn't see it, and everyone was too nice to tell me that I was too old for the 60's style I was sporting.

Doyle, carefully, transformed me.  He brought me to my present, 2011 professional style in steps.  Slowly conditioning, shaping, coloring, cutting off a few inches more at each appointment.  Never making me feel like "Oh my Goodness, what a mess we have here..."

Doyle's given my hair life, it shines, swings and bounces!  Yes, Doyle Sims is better than Ice Cream!

What they're saying about Doyle Designed on LinkedIn

"Doyle has been the personal stylist of choice for myself and my daughters for several years. He has been equally adept at fixing the disasters of teenage hair coloring (not a small task) and keeping me looking fresh and professional as a physician opening my new practice."

Doyle brings a breath of fresh air to marketing in Downtown Flossmoor. Over the years he has been a pioneer in innovative forward thinking in marketing himself as well as other in the DFBA. He will be an excellent President for the DFBA and we are lucky to have him take over this role for the next 2 years."

"I first met Doyle when I responded to an ad from Doyle Designed, and he's been cutting my hair ever since. I like having someone who's willing to spend time asking the right questions, so I get a haircut that reflects my personality and respects my time constraints. Besides that, the time I spend in Doyle's chair is good for my business too—we discuss creative ideas, make connections, and share successes. Doyle Sims is a true creative professional."

"Doyle is a fabulous hair specialist in all aspects of the business. His line of hair products are wonderful. He is very personable, attentive, and genuinely cares about his clients and makes one look beautiful. It was a pleasure having him work on my hair when I was on tour in Chicago and look forward to it next time I'm in town. His knowledge about hair and products are just a few of the things that impressed me most about him. I highly recommend him and his product line. Treat yourself to a wonderful experience all around . . . go see Doyle!
