I find myself always looking through fashion magazines like Cosmo, Elle, etc... trying to find the hottest new looks and what I want to look like. The problem that I used to always run into is the inability to find a stylist to complete my "celebrity make-over." I've been through dozens of stylists that can't do it but say they can, and I've been disappointed more often than not... Then I met MEGAN TRIVETTE who is a new stylist at Primp Salon in South Tampa. She is the absolute best! I felt extremely comfortable that she could make me look how I've always wanted. 1st of all, when I met her I thought she was a celebrity herself. She was right out of one of my magazines! I felt like I was on Entertainment Tonight and I was about to get my hair done by a celebrity. MEGAN shared a striking resemblance to Eva Mendes or Jennifer Lopez. and had the style and personality to match. Throughout my awesome experience I learned that MEGAN TRIVETTE has a wealth of experience working with celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, etc... She also has worked on a variety of movie sets and Victoria Secrets photo shoots. WOW!!! Here I am sitting in the chair of an official Celebrity Stylist right here in Tampa! MEGAN recently moved here from LA and was trained by Paul Mitchell there and Bumble and Bumble in NY. MEGAN also introduced me to an exclusive product line, Kerastase (the Gucci of hair products), which Primp is like the only carrier of, while treating me to the best shampoo job that I've ever had in my entire life! My whole experience was perfect! MEGAN was funny, honest, and very welcoming, and all of those things made me look forward to coming back with regularity. You can't beat it! For the price of a hair-do I felt like I got my own personal image consultant that made look great, as well as feel great! Talk about getting your monies worth... I highly recommend MEGAN TRIVETTE and Primp! Make your appointment quick because she won't be a Tampa secret much longer!!!

I had such an amazing experience at this place from the moment I walked in. Even though they're "appointment only," I walked in off the street on a Sat. afternoon and asked if they had any openings then and there. They said yes and were so cheerful. I had my little baby with me and instead of being annoyed like some places, the ladies all gathered around and cooed over her and made her happy - it REALLY helped. Most importantly, my stylist Andi listened to me and had great ideas. We ended up cutting off at least 6" and I look totally different and I love it. Andi was really friendly and the owner, who came over and met me, gave me a discount for being a first-timer. I'm DEFINITELY going back, probably requesting Andi. She said that all the stylists are trained exactly the same way so that all cuts are consistent, no matter which stylist you get. I can't believe someone on here complained that they have a lot of Muslim clients and therefore no male stylists. If you have a problem with Muslims, buddy, maybe you should move to the sticks in middle of nowhere...I especially liked Paris Salon because there was every kind of woman there, enjoying herself and getting some much-needed pampering. We ALL need that sometimes!
I went to Salon Atelier to see if it was even possible to fix the mess another local salon had created! My hair was dry, brittle and about three different colors. When I walked in I was greeted by a very nice lady at the front desk. I explained to her my situation which indeed was evident. I was then introduced to a hair dresser by the name of Maribel.Maribel took the time to listen to my concerns and expectations. She then let my hair loose from my pony tail and explained to me what she would do step by step.Even though it would be a bit of a long process and I didn't have an appointment she said I was more then welcome to stay. I decided to stay and I'm so happy I did. Maribel washed my hair and put a treatment in it, she also trimmed the ends,she dyed my hair a beautiful golden brown (which is why I had gone to the other salon to begin with) and she did beautiful highlights! She finished it off with an amazing blow dry with volume. I couldn't believe my results. I forgot to mention how welcomed I felt. I forgot her name but the lady from the front desk made me an espresso and offered me water. She was very welcoming. I absolutely love this place and have reccomended them to all my family and friends. Thank you salon Atelier :-)
Before the japanse hair straightening at anna bang hair dsign I got keratin treatment done because it was cheaper. But it only lasted just two weeks. I wasted $239($199 plus $40 tip) and it was pretty disapointing. Then I called anna bang hair design two times to make sure they can do my hair right and both times(once with anna and once with paul) they sounded so confident and were able to answer all my questions. So I've got my japanese hair straightening done last week and it came out so perfect and so soft, My hair was always dry and frizzy on top of curly but now my hair is so straight and frizz free and so soft. I never had my hair like this bofore I am so happy. In my opinion liscio japanese hair straightening is much much better than keratin treatment(brazilian or copola keratin treatment). To me anna bang hair design is a solid 5star. Warning: After keratin treatment I had bad headache and itch eyes for several day so I did some research and found out that they are very commom symptoms after the keratin treatments. There are many articles and tv reports out there about it. I am not going back to any keratin treatments.

I moved to Tampa in 1986 and at that time, I had been in the beauty industry since 1971 as a leading stylist and makeup artist from Memphis, Chicago, St. Louis, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Of course the first thing I started looking for was a nail tech to do my nails and I spotted this girl's nail from across the room and went flying over the inspect her nails and then to ask where??? Where??? She told me and Tonya has been taking care of my nail care needs for all these years... My very first written review of her and her salon was when I worked part time as a social columnist for "The Brandon and Temple Terrace News". Of course the news was SPECTACULAR!!! Making long stories longer, if you just simple want your nails done go some where else, but if you want to join a salon for THE BEST NAILS EVER and a place you begin to just want to hang out at, then it is your duty and responsibility to yourself to visit Tonya's today!!!

I have been living in South Tampa now for over 20 years and I am usualy prety loyal to local business establishments. I recently came across this salon & Spa which was given to me by a close friend. I was apprehensive about trying a new place but it was a Great experience, as soon as I walked in the front door I was treated like someone special. I was offered a drink for coofee and tea to a Martini and Quiche, wow what a pleasant greting. Then I was given a tour by the owner Kathy, who was very nice and informative about each area and was most interested in what I wanted to have done. Well I was taken care of by Lisa who was terrific and very knowledgable, I am very please and would reccommend this new Upscale New York style Salon & Spa to anyone. on a scale from 1 to 10 I rate it a 10 Plus.

I've been going to Paris Hair for a few years now, and I am always happy with the results. Christine does magic with my baby fine hair and I always ALWAYS get compliments. We've played with color and length and I'm always able to get a polished look even on my own. The Salon has a massage therapist that I've seen several times - even dragged my husband in - and she was wonderful! She applies just the right amount of pressure to relax me AND I feel better when I leave. I've had my eyebrows and face 'threaded' and brow shaped and tinted, and I couldn't believe the difference that made with my blonde brows. My face brightened up immediately. In short, this salon works as a team to ensure you are satisfied with your New Look every time you walk into the door.
I been going to this salon for 4 years I had experiences with everyone getting pedicures, eyelashes, waxing, gel nails. Heres who I recommend an recommend not to got to.. Let's start with table #10 he very fast,good but likes to make is own prices, #5 she makes her own prices up too but not so good, Katey and fong very sweet girls and handle business with the eyebrow and eyelashes..the lady with the crazy eyebrows I'd stay away from, #8 has an attitude but she pretty good, the big guy with the tattoos is good fast and Keeps it real, but hardly ever works. For the rest of them still haven't seen wat they can do yet although the salon stays busy. Oo and the reception lady in the front has bad customer service skils which she is getting better on..
