Everyone there has been beyond nice to me and very accommodating including Alethea. Keep in mind that I always go out of my way to project positive energy in hopes of receiving it back and that may well be my secret. :) First, I have very pale non tanning skin with dark coarse hair. I also feel almost no pain. I have been there 3 times for laser hair removal and after just one treatment I noticed at least 25% of the hair was gone. Since then I have been a total of 3 times. It has been at least 3 months that I haven't even shaved. Looking right now I can actually count how many hairs are left and they are hard to see and maybe a quarter of an inch long. I am leaving them so we can see what still needs to be done. I wish I could have my whole body done!!! I have been to another place when laser hair removal was still new around 5 years ago and I had 6 treatments and 100% of that hair has grown back. it was extremely painful and It also cost me around $700!! Since my 3 laser treatments at Bella so far I even went in for a microderm facial. Two weeks before I had a microderm performed at another salon and my face wasn't even red! I couldn't even tell! At Bella, my face was really red and all my skin just fell off for the next few days. It was amazing!! I just put avocado oil on my face right after my morning shower then before I went to bed. I can't believe how fantastic my skin looks and i heard that you need to have like 3-6 done to see any results?!?! I love my results right now. I even had a groupon and I don't feel like I was treated any less.
My partner and I got a Scout Mob deal on massage services at Urban Body Studios, and I scheduled an appointment with Tai, who was one of the massage therapists participating. I figured, since I got him by default, that I shouldn't have any unreal expectations for a great massage. Man, I could not have been more wrong!!Tai is that rare massage therapist who actually listens to what you tell him, has the skills to put his hands to work, and produces GREAT results. After only three massages, I'm hooked...I work out a lot. I do weight training, and use the machines at my gym to row, bike, and sweat it out on the eliptical. I'm in my 40's, and definitely need help staying balanced with the hard work I put in. I have been to massage therapists many times before, and have finally found someone who can keep me tuned up.Tai has intuitive, powerful hands, and gets right into those difficult areas with just the right amount of pressure, just pushing right up to the point of pain without ever crossing over the line. I stay in a meditative-like state the whole time he's working on me, and don't even have to give him feedback--he's that GOOD. I am so happy to have stumble upon this wonderful, amazing therapist. I cannot recommend his services enough. Just WOW!!
I honestly decided to leave a review because i know there are others experiencing issues similar to me. I came to Uptown & saw Josie off of a site called styleseat.com. i had recently been tooken advantage of by 3girls&aneedle hair/service and wasnt sure who to trust. But simply by grace & mercy, i was led to Josie & had a wonderful experience. I got a full sewn in w/ closure using true indian hair (she believes in recommending quality vendors & not just trying to get over with bad batches). Pricey...yes...but worth it due to the quality of hair ordered (2 bundles & closure $315...will review hair as well) & she died bundles & installed for $250. She also cut layers into the beautifully dyed blk with subtle burgundy highlights (1st time trying color...was nervous...but came out great). Additionally, they were friendly, enjoyed gospel music in background (which i truly appreciated but later R&b was played), was not loud/ghetto/cursing going on...just really a cool environment. This is a real & true review by a female fed with Atlanta's abundance of hair vendors & stylist out here trying to collect on our hard earned money! Im DEFINITELY returning!
I did my research before flying into Atlanta GA from California and I was in need of a serious stylist that knows how to transform people into stars. I actually followed Beautii J's career history on you tubes and blogs which shows a lot from the fashion world, products, entertainment, hair and now educating up and coming stylist. I really wanted a master educator a women of her master craft in my hair. Beautii listened as to what my needs where and added a few suggestion and assist me in selecting the best Indian Hair that matches my natural hair as possible. When my weave was done, I felt and look like a mega star and I must say Beautii has turned my life around because I was picked for a role that is currently view on T.V. now. The staff is so friendly and nice. The staff work is superior as well, I have not seen any client leave unhappy. The shop appearance has a European decor that relaxes your mind. Rest assurance, I am pleased and I have found my long term stylist that not only services my weaves at the shop she also hooks me up on set.Thanks Beautii J...
I had my first visit yesterday, and it was a great experience, so had to say so. My low back and mid back have been locked up for a while now. I have been seeing other massage therapists and getting massaged, but wasn't getting the results I needed and once used to get (I have been under care since I was 13 - I have congenital conditions in my spine that make me prone to flare-ups). I am actually a therapist myself so that means my job is very physical and because I have a lot at stake I am picky about who I trust to work on me. I had never met Alexis before, and like anyone else - did research and read reviews prior to going in. I actually get nervous seeing anyone new because I have a sensitive back that can get aggravated if moved incorrectly. Anyways, the experience was awesome. It was one of the best therapy sessions I have had in a while, and am finally hopeful about getting continued improvement. Scheduling couldn't have been easier, and he was super nice and welcoming.
So I was experiencing some tension and pain on the right side of my neck. I have been seeing another massage therapist and a chiropractor that have been great but we just weren't quite getting there in terms of loosening up my neck. Alexi is a big guy and pretty powerful, not to get confused with rough or aggressive. But it's exactly what my body needed to get that relief I desperately needed. The first session I was so locked up. Alexi opened me up very quickly and I was impressed. I came back for 2 to 3 more times and by the end of the 3rd session I was cured and fully unlocked and able to sleep and move my head in full range of motion pain free. Price is amazingly low for his services $100 for 90 minutes, services like this usually run $150 a session. The appointments can be scheduled online, I was in and out very quickly. I HIGHLY recommend Alexi if you need, desperately need some quick relief, even in my scenario where my chiropractor was unable to quite get me there.
We arrived at a little after 7pm in a Friday night. The place was busy but not ridiculously crowded. We were seated right away. The music was nice (from Bruno Mars to Janet Jackson) The service was outstanding! Justin, our server, thought we waited too long for our ramen. It didn't seem long to us as we were busy digging in on the delicious appetizers of Japanese fried chicken (yum) and braised pork belly (omg yum). Next thing we knew, Justin came over and told us he discounted part of our meal and apologized for the wait and then the manager brought us MORE complimentary pork belly! Seriously, we didn't think the wait was long at all! The appetizers were plenty for 2 of us. We ordered the mild curry ramen (a bit on the spicy side) and the spicy Wasabi ramen with shrimp added. Both were very tasty! The curry was spicier than I expected, but the curry flavors were spot on. We will definitely come back and I will recommend this place to my friends for sure!
This is a beautiful salon. It is decorated very nicely. I love my stylist which I followed from another salon. My last visit however was disappointing, not because of anything my stylist did but moreso how myself and the person that was with me were treated when we arrived. I can understand that the owner would like to keep her salon nice but not allowing a paying customer to bring anyone along for an appointment is bad business. My guest, who is also a client of my stylist was turned away at the door because she was not being serviced that particular day. We drove an hour and fifteen minutes only to not feel welcomed at the salon upon arrival. This was a complete turnoff. I can understand not allowing children in the salon unless they are being serviced. I can even understand not allowing more than one person to accompany a person with an appointment, but a person that is an actual client turned away at the door.... humm. I can see why the salon is empty.
Sonya was nice, the shop was decent, but my problem was that they up-charged me from what Fatima quoted on the phone. And every time myself or another customer asked for the price of something they had to talk amongst themselves in a foreign language and Fatima (owner) decided on the price. I'm like how do you have to discuss the price for something!!! The prices should be set. So led me to believe they changed the prices based on the traffic flow for the day. And it was empty. I also requested to have my ends clipped & after Sonya had play time cutting in my hair Fatima came and I guess did it correctly w/a small tooth comb on natural hair! Hair 101 No No! I wish I could say I would recommended someone here but I would not. I looked at their hair books and most pics were dated & magazine tear-out pics instead of their actual work. So It wasn't a horrible experience, but I was not satisfied.
Everyone here is so sweet and welcoming. They all work in a family type of setting, where each stylist learns and has the same capabilities for various hair services. Before starting my service, Staren, my stylist, showed me around the salon, and provided me with a clean black robe. Upon returning to her booth, she inquired what I wanted my final look to be and the amount of length I would be comfortable with. After the relaxing shampoo massage, she went to work. Other friendly stylist came over and watched as she transformed my long locks into a super cute trendy short, long bobb. Although I told myself I did not need any more hair products, I could not help but get some of the amazing Orbe products that made my fine, thin hair bouncy and full without feeling crunchy and hard. FYI...It's now 11 hours later from when I had my hair done,and it still looks bouncy, soft, and full.
