Aleaka's Nail Bar Sun Salon
1443 W Northern Lights Blvd, Anchorage, AK 99503
By far the worst experience I've had at a nail salon! I booked a nail appointment for 1:00 pm on a Saturday, and when I got there the owner Aleaka was not there to do my nails. One of the employees called her and gave me an excuse that she was having some problems with her kids at home and wouldn't make it in. I couldn't wait because I had to work at 3 so she asked me to come in at 8:30 pm when i got off. I got there and she was waiting for me, however a few minutes later when I was getting my acrylics soaked off to put on a new set one of her regular clients came in and she moved me to a different table and pretty much forgot about me for a good 30 mins. As I was sitting there with my hands in a bowl of hot acetone I was looking around and starting noticing how dirty the place was. There was acrylic dust all over the chairs and tables. The tools were just sitting out and clearly hadn't been cleaned or disinfected. I could go on and on about how crappy this place was layed out but I want to keep this as short as possible. So about an hour in of me sitting here with my nails melting off, I wanted to get out of there. I sat there while listening to Aleaka talk crap about on of her friends who had been hanging out there when I arrived and had left about an hour later. Telling basically everyone in the shop that she was homeless. SO unprofessional. Her kids were in the back office and she got up a couple times to yell at them. She was dressed sloppy and had acrylic dust all over her shirt and chest. The client who walked in after me and basically took my place asked her 3 year old daughter that she brought with her to be given a haircut and after she had to wait for the hairdresser to get out of the tanning bed the kid got one of the ugliest and sloppiest haircuts I've seen come out of a "salon". The mom asked for side bangs and the hairdresser couldn't even do it and blamed the little kid for moving. By this time my nails were nearly off so I made up an excuse that I had somewhere to be (By this time it was 10:00pm) I had her take my nails off and just put a clear coat on so I could get out of there and go get my nails done elsewhere the next morning. Overall just a horrible experience. I would never recommend it or go back. And one more little detail, one of the first things Aleaka said to me as I sat down at her table was " Uhhh where do you get your eyelashes done? I can do them much better! You can see the glue! What kind of glue do they use??" Well, Aleaka, I do them myself and they look just fine. But thanks for telling me they look bad so you could scam me out of $40. Please don't waste your time and money on this joke of a business!! That place needs to be shut down.
