My matron, 2 bridesmaids, and I had our hair done at Vici for my wedding. I also had makeup done. I let the girls do as they wanted with their hair and it turned out great for them. I am not a fancy person, so I told her a general idea of what I wanted and let her work her magic. She did an absolutely awesome job on my bridal hair! All I told her was a half pony with waves/ curls and gave her some artistic license. I was very happy with the simple yet beautiful result I received, it was absolutely gorgeous. I don't remember her name, but her station was closest to where you pay for your services. They even gave me a small gift for having my bridal party there (compact mirror, makeup remover, etc.). Another woman did my makeup (she had short, straight, blond hair). Again, I usually do not wear makeup so I wanted a light application. She made it look so nice, especially for a non-makeup person. Overall we left very satisfied. My only complaint is trying to get in contact with the wedding coordinator is nearly impossible! My wedding planner called to make the appointment and they said I (the bride) had to call. I called 4-5 times with voice messages without reply. My planner contacted them again and was able to make an appointment. I was going to have the makeup done for all my girls, but because the appointment was made so late due to the mess that only I could get it. One girl was able to have her's done at the school real quick, but otherwise the other two did their own at home. We were also going to have our nails done there, but with the mess of the hair and makeup appointments we didn't want to run the risk for the nails not getting done. So, in short, get an appointment with them a good amount of time before the wedding! Try 2-3 months minimum in case you run into the same issue I had. They still did a really good job though. Appointments were made at the salon, not the school.
OK, now I am real funny about my hair, I mean who isn't. Anyway, I decided to give this place a try, you know taking a gamble... LoL! Well it was worth it! First off, the scheduling & customer service was great! I called the same day & they told me to come right on in. So I got there, was greeted very nicely & was called back within 10min upon my arrival! Now here's where it gets exciting! I am woman of color, so I was unsure how the stylist would handle my hair so I was worried, but not too worried. The reason was because I felt comfortable going threw the process no matter what! Much to my surprise I was greeted by a male stylist (Lawrence) very, very nice young man. He then proceeded to take me back & chatted with me about what I wanted. They told me how much it would cost, which was unbelievably inexpensive! I could not believe how much they quoted me. Of course I agreed! After all that was said & done he started to do his magic! In a matter of minutes I was the princess of the place! Everyone stopped by and commented on my hair & not only that his supervisor was very impressed with his work, so was I! I felt like a million bucks walking out them doors. Only to be returning soon because I will. Its definitely worth it. You can't beat the price, quality, customer service or satisfaction! Call now for an appointment, you won't be sorry, I promise! =)
I was a student here in 2008.They are very hard on there students, and even graduating from here is very difficult because you are scrutinised by the staff for every little thing. Down to the shoes you were, wearing the wrong shoes will get you sent home for the day. Without any credit. The students are free labor for a school that makes at least 10,000$ per student per semester, with class size of about 15 to 20 students. It made me angry to know what a haul they take in at the expense of the students and patrons. Students have been in school classes 3 months before given permission to be on the salon floor. So if your looking for happy staff that are experienced in dealing with the public, and Also do a consistently good job. Go somewhere else! You will not get that here Everytime you go. Go to a professional if you can't won't or don't wanna chance it. Its a salon of stress!
