Realizing most of these reviews are really old, I decided to give this place a chance. Needless to say, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The second I walked in the store, I was greeted with a "Welcome to Ulta!" even though the cashiers were busy. Two in particular, Stacy (a quiet, tall person), and Emily (shorter, dark hair) were extremely friendly and helped me find a new mascara I absolutely ADORE as well as a few other things (the store still has a tendency to be a little confusing at times, unfortunately, but I know it's not the fault of the people there). The best person there was a quieter girl (unfortunately, I can't remember her name at the moment... I'm sure it'll come back to me later...) who worked as the skin therapist. Emily directed me to her at one point when I asked her a question about skin care products, and I'm honestly so glad I got the chance to talk to this wonderful girl. She smiled and asked me what I was looking for before making recommendations, most of which I was unsure about until she started explaining the benefits and differences of each one. She even asked me about what I am using at home to see if there was anything I should change about my routine. I eventually decided to get the $20 "microzone" she recommended (they're like mini-facials), and have discovered that it was not only more than I expected, but well worth every penny spent and more. I have never felt my skin so soft and smooth before, and in only 20 minutes! I made another appointment with her in just another couple of weeks, and will definitely be keeping it!
I was recommended in using Nature's Own Pest and Lawn Services and I couldn't be any more satisfied. They are fantastic! I was having a major pest control problem and after I was recommended this company I decided to give it a try. I made a service call and spoke with the office manager who was very friendly and very professional. They are willing to come at any time of the day even weekends. We set up a date and time and I was given specific instructions so when they come they can get right to work quick and easy. I thought that was great they gave me instructions because most businesses don't tell you anything until they get there and then you waste a good 30 minutes. When the guy got to my place he was very friendly and did his work. It didn't take long but from what I saw he was very professional and knew what he was doing. After he was done with his work he asked if there were any other problems that he can take care of for me. I was surprised because other businesses just go in do their work and leave. Before he left he says if I was having any problems please to contact them immediately so they can take care of the problem. A few days later the manager called to make sure everything was going okay. Great customer service they truly care about their customers. I will for sure use them again. My pest problem has not continued since they have done their service. I strongly recommend this company to everyone. They truly go over and beyond to help, serve and satisfy their customers. Well done!
I've been going to Avant for about 13 years now and have been through several stylists and used different services from them. Overall, I really like the place. I got my last haircut from a stylist that I hadn't used before, Daisy, and she was great. She was really fast and gave me a great haircut that didn't look like I had just gotten it cut. I love that. The salon always smells nice since they use Aveda's aromatherapy products, and my favorite part is getting my hair washed. The aromatherapy scalp massage is always so relaxing. I also like the other nice touches like a beverage bar with a single serve coffee machine, cold water dispenser, juice pitchers, etc. Also, Avant sometimes has a 15% off sale for their gift cards and Aveda products which are a steal of a deal since they're almost never on sale. So here's the ugly for why they don't get 5 stars. I had been using a stylist for years and then all of a sudden, she was gone. I found out that she was accused of colluding with some other stylists to start a new salon, so she was let go because of it. Well, I know for a fact that that wasn't the case, and they never apologized to her or even offered to take her back. She had been working there and had worked her way up ever since she graduated from high school. I'm still a little disturbed by this and don't know how I feel about it.
I just moved to Austin and had such a hard time trying to find the right stylist for my hair. I have long curly hair which can be cut and styled, but never am I able to get that salon look on my own. Well lady luck must have been on my side when I came upon Salon Sirrah. I have to admit I was skeptical, thinking this might be yet another salon where a ton of money is spent on a seemingly great hairstyle that I can't style on my own. Shelly was the hair dresser recommended to me by one of the staff at the salon. Let me just say, she is a Hair Goddess. What she did to my hair was absolutely fantabulous!! Everyone at my job, my husband, and friends loved my new look. More importantly, I now have the versatility of wearing my hair both curly and straight w/o difficulty. I can't thank her enough. She was super patient and honest about what styles would look best with my face shape. She also reassured me that if I had any problems styling my hair I could call her, or just come back in to the salon and she would show me how to style my hair. Where else would you get that kind of service?
Since plumbers have a reputation about on par with lawyers and politicians, I didn’t have high expectations, but I had read some good reviews. I read that several people had been especially impressed with Marc Ramirez, so I requested him. Everything about the service call was perfect. Marc was polite, friendly, efficient, and cleaned up before he left. He explained the rationale for his recommendations and found a way to do the pricing that was advantageous to us and even gave me a better discount than the coupon I found online, so now I can keep it for my next service call. Marc is great at what he does, has a great attitude, and has truly excellent customer service skills. I signed up for a program where you automatically get assigned the same service technician for any future visits, which is a big plus. I normally avoid the big names with service companies because I feel like just a number and prices tend to be higher, but my first experience with Roto-Rooter couldn’t have been better.
I've been using Alice Plumbing for at least 10 years here in Austin, Texas. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate having found a plumber I can trust and who is incredibly professional. Alice Plumbing has installed, maintained and repaired plumbing and gas products I've purchased. So friendly, prompt and customer service oriented, I've learned from from my experience with Alice Plumbing to ask them first when considering a product for purchase. When you ask for an opinion, you get an honest assessment from a professional. In less than a minute, the guidance provided allows you to make your own decision based on the pros and cons from personal experience with the product. If he has no personal experience with a plumbing or gas product, he'll tell you and he will also share the knowledge gained from the experience of others who have installed, maintained and repaired the product you are considering or actually have installed. Alice Plumbing is the best!
Ricky G. was the technician that came out for the initial service at my house. I walked the property with him in order to show him some problem areas, and while doing so, decided to put my pit bulls inside so they would not be a distraction. Not realizing that I left my front door cracked, I returned inside to find no pitbulls and a gaping, wide-open front door. Ricky saw that I was distressed, asked if he could help and immediately jumped into his vehicle to assist. Alterra Pest Control to the rescue! Fortunately, after a mutli- vehicle, whirlwind tour of my subdivision, we were able to locate the dogs and bring them home without further incident. Without missing a beat, Ricky got right back to work knocking down mud dauber nests and eradicating massive ant colonies. He even found time to bait for field mice, and throw some humor around. This is just my initial treatment, but I am impressed with the professionalism and dedication of the technician.
I can't tell you how long I've been trusting my hair to Dan Garza! I live in San Antonio, and I used to travel all the way to Dallas just to have him take care of me! Boy was excited to hear he moved closer to me -- in Austin! Now, he takes care of me, my husband and my daughter! I wouldn't trust just anyone with my loved ones - especially my 11 year old! A couple of weeks ago Dan took me from drab, dark, dry hair to a bright and sunny red base with caramel and gold highlights! The cut alone took years off of me - but the color stole the show! Even Raquel Welch would be jealous! I've gotten so many compliments its put the pep back in my step. Its easy to get caught in a rut of business and obligation - but Dan reminds you to take care of yourself and he inspires you to smile again. Yes, all that - from just a cut and color! Give him a call - he's the type of stylist that doesn't mind you calling him on his cell either! (512) 791-3750
Salon Savoy has incredible hairdressers and staff. From the receptionist to hairdresseres, they listen to what you are saying. They are highly knowledgeable about color and perms and their cuts are excellent...never a choppy look as you find with less skilled hairdressers. I have never been to a salon where a hairdresser will actually tell you when your hair should not be permed or colored due to damage. At Salon Savoy they do and will make cost effective recommendations even if it means they will lose money. In these hard economic times that is important. The salon is tastefully decorated which induces a relaxing atmosphere with plenty of room so that you are not crowded by other patrons. Another important thing is parking. You will find plenty at Salon Savoy. The hairdresseres are Mark and Michelle. I highly recommend either as they are extremely skilled in their craft.
I think these guys are a cut above the rest, especially the well known names people associate with seasonal pest control services. Josh spent all the time needed to answer all my questions. I especially like the "call anytime" feature for more complete control of certain persistent and resistent pests. It made perfect sense to me that the initial visit that gets 70-85% pests with a follow up visit in one month to get the rest is done. I haven't used a pest service before as everyone I know who does is less than enthusiastic about the results they have had. Giving a newer company like Alterra a try also made sense. It seems that a lot of companies work hard to GET your business but over time, they do less and less to keep your business. If Alterra continues to do a thorough job of controlling and eliminating my pests, then I will be a long time customer.
If your toilet is losing water, the problem can usually be quickly identified by taking a look inside the tank.
Under the tank's lid, you'll see a few items:
To understand what could be going awry in your toilet, it's best to first know what happens with each of these items. When you flush the toilet, the handle pulls on a lever attached to the flapper's chain. The flapper then lifts up and lets the fresh water in the tank flow into the bowl.
As the water drains, the float drops to the bottom of the tank, which triggers another lever. This lever turns on the pump, and begins to fill the tank up with fresh water. The pump is turned off when the float reaches the top of the tank again. The water should not go past the top of the overflow tube.
An old or damaged flapper is one of the most likely culprits behind a running toilet. The flapper needs to create a tight seal so water doesn't leak down into the bowl. If water is slowly seeping past the plug, the float will eventually be lowered enough to trigger the pump to turn on.
To replace the flapper:
Flappers are generally pretty universal, so the biggest thing you'll need to take note of is the size. Older toilets generally have a 2-inch outlet valve diameter, while newer ones more likely have a 3-inch outlet valve diameter.
The resting place of your float is key here. If the float naturally rises above the overflow tube, the pump won't turn off until the water reaches that position. Then, water will go down the overflow tube, lowering the water level in the tank, starting the process over again. To solve this, simply readjust the rod so the float's resting place is below the overflow tube.
When the toilet isn't being flushed, the chain leading to the flapper shouldn't be too tight. This could be lifting the flapper enough to let water through. Check the flapper position and the chain and adjust as needed so the flapper shuts tight.
