I've been going to Debra Macias at Strands for a year or two now, to get my hair cut & blown out and she ALWAYS does a wonderful job. Having previously worked in the beauty industry myself, I've had my hair blown out on stage by the best of the best at hair shows before, and let me tell you that Debra is second to none. That being said, I was still hesitant to get the "Brazilian Blowout," just because it's a newish product. I have super curly, dyed light blonde hair, and I when I shopped around for prices, most stylists told me that "for my long, curly, dyed hair- it'll be $500." Debra did my hair for only $350, which made it possible for me to be able to actually get it done. From the time I got shampooed, until the time my hair was done it was a breeze. Even though my hair is so long that it did take awhile to get completed, Debra is so nice & fun to talk to that the time flew by. She even got me a doughnut & a cappuccino. She has such a gentle touch that it didn't hurt at all, and by the time she was straightening my hair I couldn't even tell there had been product on it! Everyone loves my hair now. It's super soft, & it actually looks like I was born with striaght hair. I can't wait to see how it is after I shampoo it & see how my frizz has been reduced! ( : I deffinately reccomend Debra, for 3 reasons: 1. She will tell you exactly what she's doing, & what to expect. If she's cutting your hair she's going to make sure it's what you want first; she's not one of those stylists that want to give you the style SHE wants. But at the same time she has plenty of good advice. I really trust what she thinks will look good. 2. She's never hurt my head. Every other stylist I've been to, whether high-end or not, has been a little torturous. They always say something like, "I know this part hurts a little but we're almost done." Not at all like that with Debra. 3. She gets you good results. She's done my hair faster & made it look prettier than any other time I've had my hair done. I really was skeptical about the blowout, but she gave me enough info before and during the whole process that I felt comfortable, and it ended up being a very awesome birthday present!
Ok ... lets just say they know your name... thats refreshing. As well as their services and ability to make you feel right at home. I saw Rebecca the owner and Nurse Betty to see what could be done about my skin. They listened to me. Of course i had heard of many things in the media and was asking them if they would do several of them to acheive instant results. It was amazing the amount how much they care and explain to you how to take it step by step for best results. And that this would save me money and give me the fresh natural appearance i was aiming for. I was told within a few weeks results would be seen and then we could fine tune any additional treatments to my skin. ( i think i had more of a seek and destroy plan that would have cost twice as much and from what they said could have been a disaster, however from the consultation they saved me from that huge mistake) It was amazing i saw results that day ! and the next was even better. My teenage son even said he notice how nice my skin looked and it seemed i was looking younger! Now that is something! A Day Spa that gives more than they promise and knows how to make a customer not just a sale! They feel like family ~ I reccommend anyone to go to this little slice of heaven ! Be sure to get a gift certificate for your freinds and family ~ They will love you for it !
I LOVE Cosmetic Creations. Ever since my first time I went two years ago, when my sister randomly found this cute little spot located in a great beauty store. I have had a few different girls, but Danielle is by far the best! I, like I'm sure most other girls, was not the most ecstatic to go in for a brazilian, and though Karen was good, Danielle is AMAZING. I swear, it doesn't hurt with her! And throw in the good conversation, and it's almost like I went on a girlfriend date! (Sounds weird, I know, but that's how I feel about seeing Danielle! And this also includes facials with her, and those pesky extractions) I have recommended friends to Danielle, who have also fallen in love and will see no one else (and drive the distance for it as well). I'm going to miss living near by, but whenever I come down to visit - moving to SF this weekend - rest assure, Cosmetic Creations & especially Danielle, will always have a client. Oh, and one other little perk, right next to a Trader's Joe - get you're shopping out of the way after you're done getting pretty!
