I wanted to like them. They were wonderful the first time I went there. But now it seems I won't be again, as it seems they're taking my cancellation out on me. I unfortunately couldn't make an appointment due to a strained muscle and a cold. So I said I'd make a new appointment when I felt better. But now every time I call nobody answers, and when I request an appointment online (which I've done 5 times), nobody gets back to me. So now I guess I have to find a new place.

I mean... I would recommend going to a real salon... I went to get my nails done and the girl was nice but they put you in a room that smells like so many chemicals it's hard to sit there. They did give me a mask though so that was nice. But honestly, I wanted to save some money and it's not worth it. The manicure is awful, uneven layers and bits of nail polish all over the place. disappointed to say the least, I mean cmon I do it myself better :/ and the "spa" experience is just rubbing greasy exfoliator all over your arms, cold towels and excess cheap lotion. 15$ tho so *shrug*

I have 15+yrs in direct Cilustomer service.I went in to support my friend who's going to school here. He's really good with hair.Let me start by saying Kade is the only staff person there with customer service and people skills. He's professional, good at what he does and is very centered. He's just awesome.When I first walk in the receptionist is rude and short tempered. She doesn't know the first thing about working with customers.While the hair dye was developing one of the staff came over and told my friend she needed to speak with him "NOW". He responded, "I'm with a client, I'll come find you after." The staff person sharply and in a harsh tone reaponded, "NO, NOW" She when outside with him and kept him there for about 15mins. When he first went out I made the comment, "I hope everything's ok" to which a staff person helping the student to my left said some really rude things about my friend. The tensions were so high it triggered me and I left as soon as he washed the color out and didnt get all the services I had gone in for.Student pay a ton and have set standards and conditions they are required to meet but the school never hold up their end of it.The staff are rude and condescending, the sinks where they wash hair are broken, they had no towels because the washer or dryer was broken, and no conditioner on the counters at the sinks, Just to name a few things.You're required to pay no matter how bad students mess up and when they reschedule you to fix,it they charge you again. The students don't make anything off their work unless you leave them a tip on top of the cost. Their prices ars too high for the quality of work you get from the average student.After my last customer experience I don't ever wanna go back there. It was terrible.

I enjoy coming to see my stylist Sarah. She is real with me and is willing to work with me. Although I had a couple mistakes that had to be fixed because of my crazy curls and going from so long to so short, Sarah fixed them and made it look fabulous. Then when I went back for my dye job. Sarah amazing me again. It is definitely worth going, you just have to find the right person and go with your instincts. If they don't fit what you think you want, go with someone else, I communicated what I wanted and they matched me with Sarah and I have been satisfied. She is amazing!
