I am back from my honeymoon!!!!! I do have to say this, I was going to write this review and saw the one that another person wrote so I am even more compelled to write this review about Kathy and Lemongrass Salon and Spa! I was referred to Kathy at Lemongrass by a friend who had her wedding hair done by Kathy. She, might I add was very pleased and so were the other 8 people Kathy did! My friend isn't the only person I know that has used Lemongrass for weddings and special occasions; there are several! I am sorry that the other bride didn't have the same experience that I and my friends have had:( We all had a blast!!!! I can not imagine Kathy or anyone at the salon being rude (she just isn't that way). Maybe the bride was stressed or is just being dramatic. Kathy made all of us in our wedding party feel so welcome and she did an awesome job on our hair. Kathy got rave reviews on what she and her staff did to our hair at the wedding and reception. When I went in for my consultation Kathy stressed how important it was to be on time the day we were to come and get done up!!! Kathy told us what to bring, what time she would need to get started on me so I could be done on time. She told me during my consultation that she had another large wedding party where the brides maids showed up 45 minutes late and the bride was 2 hours late!!!! Kathy said she thought it was important to really stick to a schedule so that everyone could enjoy themselves and alleviate stress, so we did! Great call on her part! I had no idea how much stress being late would have caused until I saw the time and special attention she gave all of us. My brides maids and mother said they would drive to see her to get their color and cuts! Two of them have already been there and they LOVED what she did! I am going to get my hair touched up and cut after Thanksgiving!!!YAY!!! I would highly recommend Kathy Shelley at Lemongrass over anyone!!! Anyone can write anything and I can tell you I am a person that has had the wonderful experience and will always be thankful that Kathy and her staff were so professional and sweet!!!! I suggest you listen to what she has to say; be on time. Make sure you take notes and tell everyone in the party what will be going on and what time and how important it is for everyone to be on the same page and on time!!!.
There are always 2 sides to every story and from the reviews I have read on here I am going to give my opinion on D'Markos and hope that whomever reads this ignores the other silly reviews. I have been getting my Hair styled by Debbie for 38 years and she is one of the best stylists in the City of Montgomery and she works at D'Markos. When I walk in they speak to me they make me feel at home and it is like any good salon, you go there to have a good experience and tell some stories with your friend (your stylist) men and women alike. This is a professional establishment and customers are treated as such. They bend over backward to work with me for my crazy appointment times and schedules and they do it with a smile. The salon is the best place to relax and catch up with your friends so if you do not want to hear other people chatting then go to the library and leave the salon for the people who enjoy the experience.
when I moved up here from New Orleans I was worried that I'd never find another hair dresser like my old one. I drove a friend to d'Markos Salon and was impressed with the salon and the gift shop. While I was waiting, I talked with the owner (my friend's hairdresser) about cutting my long hair short. Kelly Rhea was great. She looked at the texture of my hair, had me look at several books and find styles that I liked and then told me which ones would work wit my hair. Long story short...She cut my hair and I was so excited with the results that I sent pictures of the "new me" to all my friends in New Orleans. I get compliments all the time on my hair (even though I'm not a great stylist...). The boutique is great. I ALWAYS find little things in there that I "need" either for me or my home. In short...I'm SO GLAD that I found d'Markos and Im sure you will too.
