This is a review for stylist name Holi Wood. This stylist does not get any stars. Her work is horrible, straight garbage. Her customer service skills is just as bad. She states she knows how to do varies styles but in reality she does not. She is a fraud. She appears to be really nice but that is just so she can steal your monies. Her quality of work is garbage. She watches youtube videos while styling your hair because she is not qualified or have skills to do hair. BEWARE!!! She takes advantage of older women who trust her. My friend made an appointment with her for a sew-in. Day 1 the sew-in was a mess. She watched youtube the whole time she was doing my friend's hair. She would not let my friend look at a mirror at any time. She completed my friend's hair and charge her $140 and then rushed her out because she stated she had other customers. Just horrible customer service. After I saw my friend's hair, I was furious. My friend reached out to her, and she said to my friend (exact words) "sorry it did not work out for you". Basically Holi gave her horrible service and stole her monies on purpose. She knew she did not know how to do a sew-in. I attempted to reach out to Holi for my friend but she lied and hung up on me. After blasting her on FB and IG, she finally reach out and began telling lies about never receiving any texts from my friend. Of course there is proof. After weeks of ignoring my friend's texts and messages, she states she did nothing wrong and she would do it all over again. She didn't offer an apology or anything. Even though we were requesting funds to be returned, an apology doesn't cost you anything. SO PLEASE BEWARE OF HOLI WOOD IN CONYERS, GA. She is at Simply Classic Salon. There are pictures of my friend's hair below. This is Day 1, not even a few days later. She has closed down her FB and IG. She books her appointment through Vargo. BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE. If any customers have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
"Fred, gave me an awesome massage that concentrated on the very areas I had told him I was having issues with; Thus, he listens 100% to the customer, to provide a unique treatment for each person! On a second visit, Lailyn performed a facial with micro-derma-abrasion on my wife. Wow, she looks great it has removed dark spots from her cheeks!!!!! My wife is so happy and is thankful to me. She keeps spoiling me, when it was Lailyn's ability and customer service that deserves all the credit!!!!!!!" - SG
Rhonda and Shelia do my hair,am very happy with their work.All of the staff render excellent service.
I called to report a drug user there at Burington and they still have the employee working there. Isn't it suppose to be a drug free work place. I fear for my husband life with this person still working there. What can I do next?
Not to sound obtuse,but the service was very poor. I sent my mother there and she really doesn't know much about sew ins. But to make a long story short her first expernce was great. I was there to make sure she was satisfied, but her second time she went alone. Her sew in had lumps and gaps. There was no shine on her sew-in. She paid $75 for her service. The money wasn't the issue because today I turned around and spent $130 on another sew in. We won't be coming back. The girl who did her hair the first time doesn't work there anymore. Probably high turn over. Ghetto hairstylist that threw her hand up once we got done talking and trying to resolve the issue. I do not recommend this shop.
Went in for a sew-in on a Tuesday afternoon. The staff was unprofessional. My hair style looked nothing like the picture I had shown the stylist prior to sitting in the chair. the stylist doing my hair was getting instructions on how to do a closure. I was pisse! I paid for the service thinking it would get fixed because I had to go to work. The next day,I told owner, I wanted the hair style I paid for. She told me the style was fine and if I did not like it would cost another $25 to remove. REALLY!!! I wanted to cuss but I knew I was better than that. My hair was taken down, for free. As I was leaving, the owner mentioned she wanted me happy so I would return... I did not receive a refund for my NO-IN, I'm out of the money for hair I paid to get butchered and I'm left with a fro...Woman, please I wouldn't return with someone else's head and money to be ripped off by an unprofessional staff, that lacks skill, talent and the ability to do the one thing their in"business" to do, Hair.
At first I really liked Chads salon, especially when I went to see Maya. I made the mistake of switching to someone new who I heard was really good from a friend. Turns out she is extremely unprofessional! There was a nice old lady who was getting her hair done as well and she kept falling asleep, I thought it was adorable, but as soon as she was finished with her hair and left. Everyone who worked there started laughing and making fun of her and how she must take a lot of pills or is just too old to be getting her hair done. They did this with several other customers who came in while I was getting my hair done. It was sad really to watch this group of people make fun. I knew as soon as I was to leave, they would do the same to me. I don't care what they think, but it's wrong!! Mallory was the lady who did my hair by the way. She did my hair not even close to what I asked for, and I had to go back 3 times and she never got it right. Worst experience ever!!
If I had an option to select -0 I would!!
If you are a single parent with children this is not the place for you. I love my stylist but when I go its myself mom daughters and grandkids. Every time I'm told to go outside with the kids. They don't care if its 2 degrees. People have children!!!! Get a place with a room to keep children entertained!!!!! Common sense!!! I hate this place simply for that reason!!!!!!!!!
My home warranty program sent these guys over to check out a tripped circuit on 5-8-13. We had previously had a leak in our house and were concerned about the mix of water and electricity. David and his coworker were very professional, friendly, and respectful. They wore covers over their boots in my home without being asked. They fixed the problem and looked to make sure there were no other lingering issues. I wish every experience with a contractor was this pleasant and easy. I would definitely hire these guys for bigger jobs if I had the work to offer them. We haven't had any electrical issues since they've left, but if we can I will be hiring this crew again. You can rest easy if you've selected this company.
There are different kinds of electricians. Some mostly work with contractors to install and map out electrical circuits inside homes and commercial buildings while others lay wire for large projects such as telephone lines and traffic lights. Keep this in mind when narrowing your search for a professional. If you need a tradesperson to work on your home or building, contact an inside or house wire expert. These professionals specialize in designing and putting new electrical systems in place for houses and commercial buildings.
When you contact an electrical contractor, describe the job that needs completing. Maybe you have a large project, like a remodeling plan that requires new wiring, or a small one, such as replacing a light switch or socket. Let the electrician know. Not every person you call will have the training and know-how to do more complex work.
To further hone your search, make sure you ask electricians the following questions before hiring:
1. Are You Licensed?
Trades such as HVAC, plumbing and electrical work require contractors to carefully install complicated systems that could be hazardous if they're installed incorrectly. Therefore, most states require electricians to receive training and obtain a license before working. An electrician that's licensed is one that's competent and knowledgeable enough of his or her trade to install and maintain electrical systems.
Electricians must complete thousands of hours of training in order to get a license to practice their trade, so make sure not only the company you choose but the employees doing the work show you their license. When you view the license, ensure that it's up to date and that it's issued by your state.
2. Are You Bonded?
There's potentially a lot that can go wrong if a tradesperson like an electrician installs wiring the wrong way. To spare you and your home or office from subpar work, make sure the electrician is bonded. Being bonded means the professional has an intermediary that can pay for any damage caused to a property or foot the bill if the contractor fails to finish the job.
3. Are You Insured?
Besides a bond, you also need an electrician that's insured. Many states require contractors to carry some form of insurance along with their license. Insist that whomever you hire has the proper amount of insurance for the work you need done and call the insurer to check the policy.
See that who you hire for the job has liability and workers' compensation insurance so you don't end up paying for injuries or accidents caused by the company's work. Workers' compensation insurance means the business can provide for any of its employees if they're hurt on the job.
4. Is Your Business Licensed?
Not only should you check that the electrician is licensed by your state, you should also ask if his or her company has the certification to operate in your area. Both the electrician as well as the business he or she works for need licenses either issued by the state or local municipality.
5. Who Will Do the Work?
Ensure the person who actually comes out to complete the work is licensed, bonded and insured. You need to know not just the company that's doing the work but the person they're sending out to your home or building. Make sure the employee doing the job isn't an unsupervised apprentice. If it happens that the business uses a subcontractor, check with both the company and the tradesperson that the same kind of bond and insurance applies for that subcontractor as it would for an employee.
6. How Much Do You Charge by the Hour?
If you have a small and simple job that needs completing, such as a new light switch, then ask the electrician how much they charge for it before hiring him or her. When it comes to larger, more intensive and time-consuming work, you'll want to inquire about the contractor's hourly rate. Many tradespeople will offer to come out to your home or building, examine it and give you an estimate as well as tell you how much they charge per hour. It's best to get this in writing before proceeding.
While you're at it, call several electricians to come out to your home to give you an estimate on the work. This way you can get an idea of what the average price of the job will be.
7. Do You Offer a Warranty?
Many reputable tradespeople provide warranties for their work. Inquire if both the labor and parts the electrician uses are under warranty and how long the work is guaranteed for.
8. Do You Have or Need a Permit?
Depending on what kind of repairs or installation you need, your city could require a permit for the electrical work. Ask your electrician if the job calls for one and have him or her put the permit under his or her name. Ensuring the tradesperson obtains a permit will safeguard you from any blame if the labor turns out to be subpar.
Finding a trustworthy electrician isn't hard, but you must do your due diligence. Make sure whomever you hire is licensed, bonded and insured, and that the professional can show you proof of all three as well as get the necessary permit for the job. Besides these important factors, you can take further steps to guarantee you obtain a reputable tradesperson.
1. Get Referrals
Ask your family, friends or neighbors if they can recommend a professional to you and inquire if they're pleased with the work. Better yet, ask them if they can show you the project the electrician completed and ask them how long it took the worker to complete it.
2. Look Online
It can't hurt to also check electricians out online. Look for reviews, ratings and, most importantly, see if they have any complaints on file with your municipality or with your local business bureaus. If former customers filed grievances against them, you may want to steer clear.
3. Ask for a Quote
Reputable electricians will give you a quote for small work over the phone if you ask and will travel to your home to quote you a price for larger jobs. Be wary of one that declines to give you an estimate or insists that he or she charge you for coming out to your house.
4. Ask Them About Their Experience
Being bonded, licensed and insured is all well and good, but you also need an experienced professional to do the work. With that said, interview electricians about past projects they completed and how many years they've been in business or how much training they have.
5. Be Wary of Suspiciously Low Estimates
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs. They are usually split up into three groups: outside, inside and residential.
Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
Residential: If you're a homeowner, you'll most likely need to hire an electrician that specializes in residential wiring. Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Like many trade groups, electricians learn their craft by going to vocational schools and shadowing professionals on the job. In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level.
If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Many do-it-yourself enthusiasts might be inclined to fix electrical problems around their home, but they risk shock and bodily injury. It's always best to call a licensed electrician, even if you have something as small as an improperly working wall outlet.
