DO NOT GO HERE! If I could give this salon a ZERO I most certainly would. It is the most unprofessional salon I have ever stepped into and they completely destroyed my hair.Jennifer was my stylist and I asked her for a darker brown than what I am to cover up the orange looking color my hair faded into. The entire time she was coloring my hair she was talking about how drunk she got the night before...she was coughing into my hair...playing with her belly button ring and acting like a complete fool. I usually ask to leave my hair wet after coloring to save on the price of a blow dry (plus she typically is pushing me out the door anyway)and I left leaving her a fifteen dollar tip. When I got home to dry my hair my hair was PITCH BLACK. It looked like a cheap witch wig. No dimension whatsoever and nothing at all what I had asked for. Here's the kicker...MY WEDDING DAY IS A MONTH FROM NOW!Crying my eyes out and completely baffled, I called the salon and told Jennifer that she had to fix my hair because it was jet black. She told me to come back to the salon and promised to fix it. I get to the salon and she has me sit down at a sink where she starts putting something in my hair..it smells like straight chemical. Anybody that knows hair knows that if you're doing a color removal you have to do it SLOWLY and GENTLY as to not completely damage the hair. Well Jennifer apparently didn't have time for that because she put BLEACH on my hair. When I asked her if it was bleach her response was "wellllll.. yeaaaahhh.." Now I am completely fuming because she did not even tell me what she was doing before she started applying these harsh chemicals.She finishes...goes to blow dry my hair and it is exactly the same. Completely flat dark black witch hair. Atrocious. I call back and tell her I need my money back...go there...she gives me the money back and KEEPS her FIFTEEN DOLLAR TIP!! If this is all not bad enough..I later find out that the OWNER OF THE SALON was standing next to us the ENTIRE time! She never once introduced herself or spoke to me about the situation even when I was standing in front of her salon literally bawling my eyes out explaining it was one month until my wedding day. HOW UNPROFESSIONAL???? This is the slum lord of all salons. It cost THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS to fix what Jennifer did to my hair. I am now taking them to small claims court because she could have damaged my hair to beyond repair. DO NOT GO TO SALON 43
After years of considering a keratin "Brazilian" hair treatment, but unsure if it was right for me, Jennifer Fournier Laforest has done an incredible job. She wasn't pushy about it, as some hairstylists have been in the past, and rather very clearly explained how the treatment worked and honestly laid out what I could expect from it. I'm so happy I took the plunge! I also wanted to shake things up a bit and put some purple in my hair, but was concerned about my professional image. She suggested that we do the strips of purple slightly underneath my top layer of hair, so it would show only if I wore my hair in a certain way. Again, perfect solution. Very grateful for Jennifer's experience and expertise and would highly recommend her.
Jennifer LaForest is fabulous! I am a repeat customer and she always greets me like a friend, gives me great advice and a fantastic cut! Recently did low and high lights and walked away feeling like a million dollars! I would recommend Jennifer LaForest to anyone looking for a great experience, and a consistent and fabulous hair style.
Nikki ArcherWhen I moved to Florida from Connecticut I was very apprehensive about finding the right person to color my hair the way I had been enjoying for years. I found her! Nikki listened to my concerns, reviewed my formula and the color product I had been using, and made it an easy transition. She is skilled and will suggest new and edgy ideas if you are looking for a change. She is also an incredibly nice and caring person. Every visit is enjoyable with a great result. What more could a woman want?
I needed a new hairstylist and a friend recommended Nickki Archer at Bradenton Salon43. Nickki gave me the best color, highlights and a new stylish cut. Nickki was very friendly and easy to talk to, the salon is being remodeled but there was no dust or unpleasant vapors. The products she used gave my hair a shiny healthy look with volume.I have been to this Salon twice and plan to make Nickki my permanent stylist. The service was great the prices more than reasonable. Salon43 has their own website which makes appointments and requests very easy....Try Salon 43 I'm sure you will also be pleasantly surprised.
Jennifer Fournier LaForest at Salon 43 gave me the best hair cut! I needed texture and volume and had been disappointed by my last few cuts at other salons. Jennifer was awesome, so friendly and cool, and gave me a gorgeous cut!
Had dyed my hair a burgundy red color and was getting tired of the upkeep and wanted to return to my natural blonde color, Jennifer did the BEST job on my hair! Took the time to make sure we were getting exactly what I'm looking for, and that it was done properly. Never been more satisfied with someone doing my hair! Be sure to ask for her when you need your hair done !
Happy with Ahmond the massage therapist, he was very thorough, succeeded in working through all the tension in my neck and shoulders. He was polite and professional. The receptionist was polite and friendly. They need to fix their signs out front and in waiting room to correctly reflect the price to date. Other than that very happy with service, it is worth the $ to go there. Affordable, friendly, nice atmosphere. I will be telling all my friends to go there!
As a recent transplant to Bradenton from up north, I was quite anxious to find a chiropractor as fabulous as I had before moving. After trying a gentleman in the Lakewood Ranch area with disastrous results, I was extremely hesitant to go to another. When I called to make my first appointment with her, I had not felt my feet for over a month, was experiencing horrible muscle spasms in my legs and suffered from excruciating headaches. After two visits, I can feel my feet again, spasms have all but disappeared and no more headaches. Dr. Diane Michaels is someone you meet and instantly feel as if you have known her your whole life. Her compassion for her patients is immediately recognizable. She listens to everything about your condition and does not even attempt to adjust you until she feels confident she can help you. Her medical knowledge is A+ and her technique combining reflexology and use of an activator is by far the most effective approach for anyone with back issues. Don't take a chance with a Rice Krispy doctor that only knows how to Snap, Crack and Pop. Make an appointment with Dr. Michaels. You will be so VERY, VERY glad you did!
Marina is an awesome hairdresser! I am very satisfied with the color and cut of my hair. I showed her a picture of what I wanted done with my hair and she made it happen! This salon has great service and I recommend Marina! She does a great job!
