Went to a wedding here. Unfortunately, the staff forgot to turn the air conditioning on prior to our arrival. The temperature never did get to a comfortable place. The room looked nice. Everyone was working in too much heat. The food was typical buffet. It was good, but not great. The exp…

Review for JUSTIN-I am a platinum bleach blonde with long hair and hot pink tips. You can ONLY imagine the kind of damage that can do to your locks. On top of the abuse I do to my mane, I spent 2 weeks at the beach flinting around in the ocean like I was a mermaid. When it was time to return from my fairytale life and come back to Tejas, I took one look in the mirror and realized that my pink had faded almost completely, my blonde was fried and my hair was in complete shambles.I am BEYOND picky about my hair and usually just do it myself (so that I can't wish ill upon others who mess it up) but this was beyond what I could repair. The roots were even like 2" long and I looked like a lot lizard instead of the hot mermaid that I thought I did. It was horrific. So I put on a Rangers cap and called Rock N Roll Hair.Justin was able to get me in immediately. I made the appointment for an ombre 'do. When I got there, he TRIED to run his fingers through my hair... no dice. His eyes were wide and shocked (probably disgusted) at the immense damage I had done. I told him what I wanted and he very kindly and gently said, "no way!" He could read me like a book and could tell that I would be sorely disappointed going from platinum to adding so much brown. He recommended a subtle transition with lowlights and to soften up the blonde. I just took his advice and rolled with it.The mocha didn't take like we had hoped because the bleach on my hair just ate it up. It was so porous. As he was TRYING to brush my hair, it was so damaged (on my account) that it got tangled and lost in his brush. He recommended that we trim the ends to bring it back to a healthy level. I admit, I cried. I have been growing my hair out for 3 years. It has never been this long, but what's the point in having long unhealthy hair?! He was so sweet and so reassuring through the whole process. He calmed me down and made me feel so much better about it. He trimmed my hair and it looked sooooo much better.I went back today (a week later) to add the mocha lowlights and he did such an amazing job!He is such an artist! He is quick and fluid! I was so happy that I gave him a huge hug (totally freaked him out! hahaha) and left with the biggest smile on my face! He also does the BEST blow dry and style. Seriously, Justin is the best. I love him and totally recommend him. I had to sign up for YELP just to recommend him! <3 He's awesome!!!Thanks, Justin, for making me feel pretty again!!!
Hired this company to cater my wedding, and at first, it seemed great. They were all smiles and laughs at our first meeting, and more than willing to take our money (obviously). Then the problems started. They gave us about 10 different menus, all very jumbled and disjointed, so we had no way of knowing which items were included and which weren't. When we went for a tasting, they said they could change the sauce on the pasta exactly to our liking. We were elated, and changed it. They never mentioned it was a $150 cost. They also said that a carving station was INCLUDED in our package, but a carver is required to be at the station, and he is a whopping $175. Every time I called them to change or add something, they treated us like we were a waste of their time. At the actual wedding, their staff was rude to my husband and I. They also forgot to bring bowls and spoons to our package (which we told them to add three separate times) so our "sundaes" were eaten on plates with forks. And they still charged us for adding the bowls. They were a headache when it came to costs, because they are SO disorganized. Many times, my husband found errors in their math on their updated cost summary sheets they would send to us. The only reason they get two stars is because the food actually was very good. But honestly, save yourself time, money, and frustration. It would have been easier to cater my wedding myself.
Nice job to all! I promised to post this for you - so here it is!! :-)Used Bella Events to design my wedding, Catered For You for the food, and Bella Wedding Rentals for my decor. These guys are first class. Very able and so willing to please. I am so happy that I chose them - they did a great job! Was a bit concerned with two negative remarks on the web. I looked at their website and saw photos of their work and was so impressed. I scheduled an appointment and saw first hand - what they did. I'm so glad that I gave them a chance. Professional, caring, and they listened to what I needed and made recommendations. I felt that I was able to get more decorations by consolidating my vendors and cutting down on delivery fees.The wedding design was where I needed the most help. Bambi and Sarah were so helpful and had such good ideas - well worth the time spent. As it turned out, the food was plentiful, looked yummy, and was presented so elegantly. We got compliments all night. Getting the rentals from them made it so easy. The delivery guys were short 10 chairs. Their own staff noticed it and got the additional chairs to our outdoor cermony area in plently of time. I really appreciated that. Nice job and thanks, Able!Turned out that the negative remarks were totally unwarranted. The staff said that competitors have made a few bad comments about them. Haters. :-(
Excellent, Swift Service!A month ago I totaled my car and was searching for one in the Austin/Fort Worth areas to no avail. I found a 2008 C350 on the Global 1 Auto website. The staff was very quick in responding and answering any questions i had. I was able to work out a deal and pick up the car the next day. The car was in very good shape and the owner informed us before the purchase that the tires would need to be changed within half a year. I've had the car for a month now and have had no problems with it at all. The engine runs very smooth and the tires are in good condition. An oil change was performed before purchase and the interior was very clean. The car was very reasonably priced for the make and year, even more so considering this is a dealership not a sale by owner. They overnighted the license plates, which arrived in under 24 hours. I am extremely satisfied with the purchase and love my new car. I would recommend this place for anyone in search of a used car, especially on a tight time frame. Thank you to Mike and the rest of the Global 1 Auto team for being so accommodating and helpful especially in a time of desperation.
Customer Service at the Carmax Service Center at River Ranch Blvd in Fort Worth was awful this afternoon from the moment I drove up till the moment I drove off. Staff didn't greet me when I walked in. There were several employees were on the computers talking to each other when I pulled up to the glass in my car. There were 2 employees at the computer immediately at the service door who continued to speak to each other. They eventually asked if they could assist me. I told them what was wrong with myour car and that the problem had been going on for months. One employee proceed to list all the possible scenarios. After a quick look at my car I was told to monitor the situation. After I was given my keys back and the employee's business card I was told that I was free to go I drove straight to exit the Service Center up to a bar that didn't raise. The employee who check my car came out to tell me that I needed to back up to exit and that that happen all the time. I left feeling as though they I staff viewed assisting me with my car as an inconvenience.
I've had a lot of bad hair experiences in my life time, to the point were I just couldn't stand walking into a salon to get it done. I was pretty nervous since it'd been over a year for a decent cut, and I was afraid I'd have a lot of unanswered questions as per-usual. After making a few phone calls to another salon downtown, with no call backs or even take the time to answer the phone, I figured I'd give Bee's Knee's a try. When I walked in, I was greated with a smile and asked if I wanted a beverage. I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere. Upon getting my cup of coffee, I met Sarah. She was pure delight. I had a general idea of what I wanted, she made it crystal clear what would work. I asked my usual questions and now I feel I have all the answers for styles and cuts that would work. It's not like any other salon I've been to, and it was well worth the wait and courage to try. Hands down, I will direct anyone looking for a friendly staff and cute atmosphere to go give Bee's Knee's a try. I will definately be back again. This is my go to!
Congratulations!! to Terry and Salon Purple. Terry has been a Master Stylist for several years. He worked at a fabulous salon in the area and had so many clients, he had to do some at home! Opening his own salon was the natural progession in his line of success. Terry is a wonderful Christian person with a Fantastic family! He has been my stylist for about 10 years. I will never go anywhere else. Terry does a wonderful job cutting and coloring my hair exactly how I want it. He is extremely knowledgable about what he does, and is up to date with the latest trends and techniques. Terry is a great listener. He is interested in giving you precisely what you want, and will work with you until you are satisfied. I have 2 teen boys and he does their hair, as well. They, too, are always satisfied with their cut ( and you know how kids can be about their hair). The salon is beautiful and inviting and so are the people! The best salon in the metroplex by far!!
These guys did our wedding day. A GREAT job, I must say. The wedding ceremony was in North Dallas and the reception was in Fort Worth. The ceremony went really well. Our wedding coordinator made certain that everything was on schedule, as best she could. She didn't anticipate that some of our details and decor would be forgotten by the maid of honor and left at the hotel. We got through that (Sarah saved the day) and the rest of the evening was really perfect. The staff hopped from N. Dallas to Fort Worth and had everything ready for us when we arrived in the limo. Using a wedding coordinator was a great decision and really helped us enjoy our day. The food was great, the atmosphere was fantastic, and the bar and dancing was excellent. Really, we didn't want the night to end. If you need an wedding designer and planner, these guys are the ones to use.
I have bought 5 good autos from cesar. No problems but unlike some I pay my bills. He tries to help people as much as he can but he's got bills too. I think 2 of the reviews are not fair sounds like people that are mad they didn't pay their bills and got repo'd. Don't go online and slander someone because your a dead beat. I don't know what people think when they say illegal repo if your 1 minute late on a payment it can be repo'd that's the law it's a unsecured loan once in default it can be repo'd. There is no 90 days notice there is no notice you know when your late and you don't call he repo's you auto. All I could advise is if you don't have credit or lots of money down go talk to cesar . But if you got credit and a good down payment go to a large dealer. It will go on your credit. and cesar doesn't charge interest.
The salon is adorable, the people are great. Nestled away "on the bricks" of Camp Bowie Blvd, this salon really is the bees knees! They have online booking, which is great because you can make your appointment 24/7.The salon is in what appears to be an old house. They have vintage-y furnishings and each stylist has his/her own station done in their own personal style.I have gone to Mandy to get my hair done for years. She is amazing because she is such a good listener and communicator. She will take your idea and give you her advice, and transform your hair! She is the only one I trust to do my hair. She can give you a change without causing you to freak. She is a wonderful stylist and I love this new-ish salon! (Not sure how long they've been open.)
