Not as great deal as I thought- very unprofessional – I bought a City Deals certificate for Blissful Images Salon. It was some distance from my house so it took me a while to get into the salon. Pulling up to the business, it was in a old and run down strip mall type business and not much to look at. The signage was very small and I walked in a little bit weary. The salon itself is cute and modern with a strange hard wood storage bench for sitting on to wait.
There are two main gals that work there; the owner and another gal. I got the other gal. She started doing my "low lights" by matching my color without consuluting with me. She did the highlights so incredibly fast that I wondered how it would turn out. While the clor was processing, she did my pedicure. I asked for a french manicure and the white tips were huge (like a third of the nail). I asked her to make them thinner, but she didn't listen. She didn't even get all my polish off from before so the colored showed through under the clear polish. The nails weren't trimmed and I had jagged edges. It is the worse looking paint job I've ever seen.
After she took the foils off and washed my hair she was splashing water all over me and scrubbed my head in a really fast way. SHe acted like everything was a big race (there wasn't anyone waiting for an appointment either). When she cut my hair (this is the part that really pissed me off), I told her to start with 1/2 inch trim. My hair grows very slowly...She took off TWO inches. I was so pissed.
My hair color ended up drab and disappointing, the pedicure was terrible and my hair is short :(.
To top off the day, the owner and the girl doing my hair talked loudly about City Deals going out of business and how they wouldn't redeem the certificates people had bought when their initial payment from City Deals was gone. My hair dresser also chatted and texted on her cell phone the entire appointment. There behavior was very unprofessional.
My hair appointment for a color, cut and pedi only lasted 1 hour and 35 minutes and it showed. Don't waste your time there, you'll leave disappointed.
