I have been to many blow dry salons in Los Angeles, Nevada and Arizona and Primp and Blow by far is #1 on my list. I'm all about decor and cleanliness and this salon gets it right. The lighting, the chairs, etc, it gives off the impression that this is a high class establishment and who doesn't want to go to a high class establishment??? The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. I always judge a salon based on how their employees look and if the owners are ever in the store. I hate how if you ask to speak to the owner or ask if they're ever in and the response is no. My first time in the salon and the owner was there getting her hair and makeup done! Don't ever go to a salon to get your makeup and hair done and the owner wouldn't even get their hair done there. My hair turned out great and people at the party I went to afterwards complimented me on my makeup all night. I love a great smokey eye and Primp & Blow got it right:) They catered to me and I truly felt special after I left. I will come here and get my hair and makeup done before any event that I have to go to. Its so worth it!
My affair started when one fine scottsdale day I was shopping with my dirty hair in a not-so-cute ponytail. I walked by Primp and Blow on a Monday afternoon and decided I really could use a wash and blow. Oh boy, I am so glad I did! My hair was beautiful, bouncy and perfect in only half an hour. I saw that they also do makeup for the same $35 price, so of course I had to try it also. By the time I was finished I had received an inexpensive full blown makeover in only an hour. As you can imagine I have been back many times and have tried all of their locations. Every stylist I have had has been amazing. I just learned that they do facials too and am having my first this weekend. If they live up to their other facial reviews I'm sure it will be wonderful. I highly recommend this place and am so happy I found it :)
Ohana Salon is GREAT! I came in with very big demands (wanted to go from dark brown to platinum blonde). Donna (the owner), came in on her day off to do my hair and it turned out amazing! Not to mention my hair is healthier than it's been in years, despite the fact that I wanted to go very blonde in ONE day. Donna listens and knows exactly what to do - my hair looks great and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I also got my nails done by Rita and I LOVE them! I've never had such a great manicure and I am going in again today to have my roots touched up and my nails backfilled. The entire team at Ohana is amazing and I will be a forever client. They use all Aveda products so your hair will be beautiful AND healthy! If you're looking for a new salon, this is the place to go!
I trusted Kathleen Halaas with my hair for over 25 years and let me tell you - she is AMAZING! I started seeing her when I was a little girl and she would give me perms :) Later in my teen years, I accidentally dyed my hair black with some of my new middle school friends and Kathleen was there to fix it for me immediately so I didn't have to be the laughing stock of the school :) Even when I moved 40 minutes away, I continued seeing Kathleen, because she is THE BEST! Along with being a master at color and cuts, she also does great makeup and she is a very supportive, loving and caring individual. She helped me when launching my own business by being there and listening to me and supporting me. I highly, highly recommend Kathleen!
What a great little shop, right off the greenbelt and next to a beautiful lake with a fountain in the middle and ducks year round. This place has a huge patio so you can enjoy goodies with your dog. And you will definitely get a kick out of the fire hydrant fountain by the door. Once you go inside, try not the be overwhelmed, there is so much great stuff!! All the dog food is top notch (candiea, natures variety, primal, wellness, innova, RAW, California Natural) They also have a great selection of loose treats that fido can have while you enjoy your coffee or fresh squeezed juice or refreshing smoothie. They also have bagels, sandwiches, muffins, and scones to die for! A great little stop for the whole family.
I have always gone to the Tempe Marketplace location. However, after my hair stylist moved out of state, I decided to try out this location. I live in N. Scottsdale and figured I'd give it a whirl! Yes, the shop is older. Yes, there are a few older male barbers that work here, all of which are friendly. Everyone has to make a living, so who cares who's cutting hair. I go to Beth. She has been doing hair for years. She is always very friendly and accommodating. I've never had to wait for more than 5min (if that). I have long wavy hair. I get highlights and a trim every few months. My experiences here have always been a pleasure and I always leave happy w/ the way my hair looks. You also can't beat there prices!!
I used to switch from hair salons almost every month until I heard of Sit Still through word of mouth. I took pictures from a magazine to Lisa at Sit Still. I was surprised to find my hairstyle be exactly what I expected. I noticed the hairstyling and cutting technique that Lisa used was complex and like no other I had seen before. She works like Edward Scissorhands, fast, but with intricate attention to detail. She stands back and adjusts the cut, hair by hair, until it is perfect. After a while, I just trusted Lisa's recommendations and let her choose the hairstyle. I always end up with a modern and yet sophisticated look and could not possibly think of trying any other salon.
I just recently went here a friend of mine referred me to them. All I wanted to get done was my eyelash extensions. I must say I have gotten eyelashes put on before and nobody ever really surprised me as much as For Nails Only did. The young lady that did them, did them to perfection! It took about an hour for the individuals. I like that she took her time and made sure they looked nice. From now on I will be coming to this place. The staff was so polite to me and the atmosphere is very relaxing. If you want a nice quiet place to relax with friendly people, this is the place to go. I loved it! I will be telling all my friends and family about it as well. Good job staff!
I went to Scottsdale on a vacation and I took my boyfriend for his first gentleman's facial, I also received a facial. The experience was wonderful and we both loved the facials. All of the staff was friendly and they made great recommendations for our skin. They also made great recommendations for area attractions and restaurants. I was reluctant to go to this spa because I read a negative review on another website but I am so glad I went ahead with this spa. I plan to return to Scottsdale and will make this spa a regular part of my vacation. Thanks much for great service and a great experience!!!! Joslyn from Colorado!!!
