I had just moved to Charleston in October of 2011, and was referred to Stella Nova to get my hair done. What a rip off that was! Over priced, poor stylist. So, then I'm visiting Miami in February of 2012 and decide that I would stop in at a very exclusive salon to get my color touched up. Rip off No. 2... I spent $400 and they stripped the color out of my hair and damaged it, as well. I was mortified as I am in the public relations field. A new friend that I had recently met after Miami said, "Hey, why don't you go see my stylist, Lisa"? So, I called and got an appointment with Lisa in March 2012. BEST THING I EVER DID! Lisa not only fixed my color on the first visit, but she started working on the bad haircut and damaged hair, as well. It is now July and my hair is absolutely beautiful.!! It has grown so much and even though I still get highlights, Lisa has somehow made it look natural. Which no one has been able to do in 10 years. She is AWESOME! If you need a stylist for cut, color, whatever, SHE IS THE PERSON TO SEE. Men too! Give her a call... and then you can thank me on your own review!
I went to this salon once last summer. I walked-in and had a consultation with a stylist, then later made an appointment that was honored on time & I was given great service. (The stylist was not Angie) I also had my brows done there and they looked great! So why 3 stars? I called several times for a follow-up appointment, left multiple messages that were never returned & I mean I left at least 4 messages in a 2 week time span. There was only one stylist in the salon both times I visited. On the positive side the salon was nice & comfortable. I felt welcome on my consultation and subsequent appointment. The bottom line though is that their service is unreliable and I've found a better stylist, only because I was forced to. I would have become a regular at this salon. Almost four years in Charleston and I've just found a regular dependable stylist. The downside is I have to drive to Mt. Pleasant to get this service. I have tried more salons in North Charleston than I can count! C'mon North Chuck stylists! Get it together!
So my girl friends had been trying to talk me into getting a Brazilian & I've been deathly scared. I came to the salon because the prices are good, & the Brazilian was promised not to take over 30 min. But the Estetician Riya told me it could take 45min since it was my first one. The waxing room was beautiful. Riya was awesome. I've since been to a salon out in Charlotte and the girl there had NOTHING on Riya!! Plus Riya's personality was the best. I'm definitely a regular now. Plus they have a $30 Brazilian touch up I get every 2 weeks. AWESOMENESSSS :)
