Okay so I have lived in the area for quite some time......actually over 34 years, This salon has been here for 6-7 years. I took my younger daughter (12) for just a trim.......wow such a good price and talk about not going home and catching a hair or two or a whole chunk that was missed or screwed up! THANK YOU MONICA!!!! A month later my best friend wanted to get a hair cut but didn't care what price she would have to pay since she pays top dollar regardless. So I took her to go see Monica, got her hair cut nothing fancy we were in and out and just so you have an idea my best friend still had $40.00 bucks not paid on her hair. She was totally surprised at the price and even more surprised at the final look. Once again THANK YOU MONICA!!!! So today (04-03-09) I took my oldest daughter (14) for a little more of a fancy cut. I respectfully asked for Monica, but unfortuntely some other customers were a little luckier to have her full attention. So not to worry I looked around and gladly requested Maria. Well we spent the next 30-45 minutes in the great hands of Maria. Maria explained the do's and dont's on how to protect care and handle my daughters hair. I went in for a cut and was giving some valuable lessons for free. She was very nice informative and over all a blessing! Not only did my daughter think Maria was some sort of hair Goddess but wants to see her for every next time to come. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU MARIA!!!! Well when the time comes we will get to be in the great hands of the other ladies that work with this establishment. I am so sorry if I have misspelled or incorrectly mentioned anything. So please stop by and see what I mean.... I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT BE LET DOWN!!!! Twin Scissors- San Antonio 78204 Maria-Mireya-Monica-Melva..........GO SEE THEM!!!!! Thank you ladies, Jennifer
I was on my way to their competitor but stopped here instead. I told Casey what I wanted, she asked a few questions and bottom line I got the best h…
This experience is not what I expected with the private, small studio. But when Carrie gets ahold of you its awesome. She is extremely artistic when applying makeup so she looks at your face like it is a canvas and begins her work. She gets really involved and does what you want her to do. The thing that I loved about it is that I still didn't even know for sure (after two separate trials) on the wedding day what I wanted done with my hair. I couldn't decide. So Carrie took over and began working my hair into whatever she was doing and when I turned around I fell in love! I hadn't seen anything that looked like that on pinterest or google and it was perfect for me and my face. I even changed things about how I wanted my makeup from the last two times I had been with her and she did whatever I asked and never seemed annoyed with me and my indecisiveness. She was so sweet towards my 5 year old sister and gave her a little bit of sparkle too! She worked with all of my girls with her other team members and had patience and endurance for they were there longer than they intended. I was appreciative of her and her team for staying to do touch ups for after the ceremony as well. I really couldn't have been happier with such a passionate person working with me and remaining calm while I couldn't make a decision to save my life. Just let her be her and she will let you be you. She truly is an artist :) and I grew fond of her soft spirit and her loving nature. Thank you Ms. Von Loudon for making me feel like the princess I was afraid I wouldn't be able to feel like due to my inability to make a decision!
I am not sure if many places...especially of the fast food sorts...would fit the bill for a 5-star rating. Still, Podna's Catfish and Po'Boys was an easy choice for a top rating. Having spent 6 months living in San Antonio, this place became one of my favorites. Although it is a place that could be easily overlooked on Austin Highway, and generally would not be fit for a 30 minute lunch if you work downtown, I found as many opportunities to go back as my co-workers would allow. The food in general is really good, but of course, you should shoot for the po'boys. My favorite was the 12" 1/2 fried oyster, 1/2 fried shrimp. Whatever you choose, it is overflowing with meat, the roll that it comes in is fresh and the sauce that you can add on your own is great. The fries weren't necessarily my favorite, but they are still really tasty and not overly fried or salty. This is a pretty basic restaurant, and watch out for the high noon lunches, as it might be difficult to find a table. But the staff is really nice and the owner, who willingly shares about his visit to New Orleans which led to the start of his business, is definitely a friendly character. Although I was never that rushed, they even have a drive-through, and I have heard that you can call in orders and have them cater. Now, I am off to new eating adventures in Dallas, TX as a next step in my own professional pursuits, but Podna's will definitely be on my list when I take my next trip to SA.
