If you want to avoid entering the hosting hell dimension, here are 10 potential entertaining glitches, and how to avoid them.
Friendly environment. Service is great. Very pleasant nice & clean. I love going there. I like my styles She's good I like the way she do my hair. She's good in what she do. She's a great styles.
This salon is a great way to waste your time! It is staffed by a group of rude and immature individuals. I made an appointment for 9am on Saturday, and sat in the parking lot until 9:30, when I gave up waiting for the stylist to arrive. I then left two messages asking someone to call me to discuss the issue, and no one returned my call. I then called the salon at 11:30am and was told "oh, we forgot". I am so glad I wasted my morning because someone "forgot" they had a job to do. If you would like to waste a few hours and be treated rudely, then this is definitely the place to go!
Beautiful salon & even better staff!Located in upscale Montrose/River Oaks areaStreet parking only
Timothy did a poor job.He is a very arrogant chap.He damaged my hair and is not even willing to correct it.Very unprofessional staff.They misbehave with their customers
Good place if you want to drink and experience some dank a.s. Always good times to be had here! I would know!
I called to explain that I wanted yellow and orange hair tips, then asked permission to bring in the Pravana hair dye myself. The young lady put me on hold to check, then said yes because they did use that brand there. I asked about a Groupon they offered that covered an ombre or balayage plus haircut/style, she answered not to purchase the deal or they would lose money, and that they would match that pricing directly in person.The day I was scheduled, I called them to let them know I was on the way and they said I was fine. After arriving the guy who was to be my stylist named Andre Deleon Williams asked me if I had a Groupon. He incredulously said it wouldn't cover what I wanted, and that he did not have enough time to do it also since he had another client coming in (it was 4:30 and they close at 8pm). The owner gets involved, and sides with him. She blamed the person who took the call for not suggesting a consultation first.I told her that I will be going elsewhere and and not recommend her establishment to anyone. She got defensive and gave me some spiel about all her years of experience. I am writing this review now so that anyone who reads it can avoid that pompous worker Andre (an older man with a condescending attitude poorly disguised as inept superiority). I am actually so glad it happened that way, because instead I went on a personal recommendation to Beauty Express Hair Salon on Bellaire. Feel free to read my experience on their Yelp reviews (my photo is captioned: Fire Hair) because it was phenomenal. It has been weeks since my hair was done and I am still constantly getting complimented on it.**UPDATE**The owner wrote a response to my Yelp review, exactly like I predicted trying to shift the blame once again by denying and whining. I expect her to lie some more in the near future because she doesn't have anything better to do. What an embarrassment. I truly feel sorry for her.
I have been a loyal customer at this salon for a while now (about 2 years) and it is with utter disgust that I have to write this review. I typically receive the humidity frizz control treatment. About 2 weeks ago, I went in for my perm, color & frizz treatment & paid $220.00. However, a day later I noticed my hair texture was not the same ( Sidney the stylist had put too much gel for me to notice during my initial appointment). I immediately called him to share my observation & he actually had the nerve to tell me the reason my hair texture was not soft is because my hair is short. Basically telling me humidity frizz control does not work on short hair.....here's the kicker, I've been spotting the short hair-cut he/ Sidney cut himself a while ago. So to fix the issue, I inform him I will call him back to schedule another appointment. Well since then, Sidney will not pick up my calls or return my text requests. I had hoped this issue would have been rectified amicably and swept under the rugs but since he obviously takes his customers for fools, I am going to make sure another paying customer like me, does not receive this type of "fraudulent" services. Sidney- I work hard for my money & when I pay I have an expectation, you are not doing me a favor. FYI/ I WILL BE REPORTING THIS FRAUD TO THE BBB......ooh and by the way, he only takes cash so, think twice!!!....& this business is located on Fondren & West Airport SW
Do read this if you are buying this saloon! First of all, this saloon is not at all in the running condition. The seller would advertise that there are 10 seats on rent, but in reality there is only 1 lady who had rented a chair for $100. I had a plan to buy this saloon thinking that there are 10 seats on rent, and I didn’t find a single renter coming there to work for 10 days continuously(due diligence period). Upon asking the seller, he would reply that all renters can come at any time during the day/night to work with their customers, its none of his duty. But I wonder how could a renter pay $200 per week without working? I asked the contact details of all renters so that I could atleast call and meet them before buying this business, and I finally found that all of them were his friends but not renters. The seller was always drunk, and had a lipton ice tea bottle in his hand filled with hard liquor(just to fool around cops I think). In the end I found whatever he claimed for his business ended up to be a big lie.
I'm so sorry for your experience. About the privacy and the crowds, I'm so sorry because this is our workshop to train new techs. We will open Lash studios in the next 6 months, and they will be very relaxing and soothing...About the services, $70 normally lasts from 4-8 weeks without refill. By the way, you only had $60 set not $70. Probably, you paid: $5( take off old lashes) + $60( new set)+ $5( Tips)= $70( ???)After care is essential. Maybe, 1st time you have done Volume Lashes and not used to it yet.. If after care was not the case, maybe allergy season is going on or other factors...We offer lash corrections for free within 3 days and a $10 within a weeks if it's due to blinking, tearing eyes, oily skin, improperly after care or allergy.The Tech did for you was only 1 tech. We have Michelle, Quyen, Kayla, Helen also are very good. Please let us know about your lashes issue so we can see how to please you and make you feel we are worthy for your money if you decide to give us another chance if you really like the look of our lashes.

For brows: Angel, Katherine, Helen: $150Quyen: $200Michelle:$250Thank you very much for your reviews.
Hi I just moved to this side of town from Pearland and was looking for a new lash boutique closer to me. I was referred to lash by Michelle by a coworker. Now I’ve been wearing mink lash extensions for about two years and this time I got the dramatic look and within a week and a half more than 75% of my lashes have fallen off. I’m not sure what type of glue they use but I’ve never had this many lashes fall off this fast. Before I could go get a two week refill I’ve lost about 75% of my lashes which will cause me to basically get a full set. Also I didn’t like the fact that everyone is crowded together inside of the same room. My old lash studio you were in your own private room without having to hear everyone’s conversation as well as ppl coming in and out. From my experience I wouldn’t recommend nor return.
Drug abuse and addiction is a public health issue with serious consequences. From prescription drugs to cocaine, inhalants and marijuana, illicit substances have affected nearly every community and person in some way. But what exactly is drug abuse and how do people seek treatment for this disease?
Making the decision to seek help for drug addiction is a huge step toward improving your health and overall wellness, as well as that of your family and community. But where do you start? There are many options.
Attend a Rehabilitation Program: There are a plethora of rehab options available to people who abuse drugs. You should be able to find one that fits your budget and lifestyle. For a very intensive treatment, try an inpatient rehab program at a facility that is well-versed in addressing long-term addiction. These organizations provide a place for you to stay while you go through withdrawals, as well as medical assistance if it is needed. Drug rehab facilities offer therapeutic programs such as cognitive behavioral therapy to help users address the problems that may drive them to drug use. You'll also be surrounded by others in similar positions who are looking to stop using and seek support, which can be very helpful and inspiring.
1. Intake Process: Every person beginning an inpatient rehab program will go through an intake process. This involves a physical exam from a doctor and a mental exam from a therapist or psychiatrist. These professionals note any mental conditions, like bipolar disorder and depression, as well as physical issues, such as chronic fatigue or multiple sclerosis, which may be affected by drug use. New patients are usually searched to ensure they do not bring any drugs to the facility on their person or in their belongings. Once a patient has undergone the intake process, they will likely not be allowed to have visitors or even talk with friends and family over the phone for a few days. This promotes focus on recovery without distractions. Each facility is different, but after a few days or weeks, patients are typically allowed to make phone calls and receive visitors.
2. Detox: The first week of inpatient drug rehabilitation is often spent detoxing. Most facilities do not host many classes or require users to attend functions at this time, as it is instead spent dealing with the emotional and physical consequences of coming down from drug use. Long-time users may experience intense symptoms such as temporary blackouts, memory loss, depression, irritability, unpredictable mood swings, headache, insomnia, anxiety, nausea and more. Most patients just entering rehab find their first few days are some of the most difficult as they must completely adjust their habits and mindset, all while going through complex bodily symptoms. Physicians supervise this time of withdrawal to address any symptoms that require medical attention. After you have completed the detox phase and there is no more trace of drugs in your body, you will likely begin attending group and individual therapy sessions.
3. Therapy: While in drug rehabilitation, you don't simply stay away from the substance that you've become addicted to. Instead, you will spend your time learning about what triggers your abuse, and how to address urges and make amends. You will also likely attend group therapy sessions where you and other addicts can share your experiences and learn from one another under the supervision of a therapist or psychiatrist. Being in the presence of others who are learning how to restructure their lives after drug abuse can be very helpful. Knowing you're not alone is a huge step, plus you may be able to turn to those in similar situations for advice.
4. Reintegration: Eventually you will need to leave the safety and routine of your inpatient rehabilitation program and return to regular society. This comes with a lot of risks, as you may interact with situations and individuals that triggered your drug use. Before you leave a drug treatment program, you will learn skills to cope in the real world that don't involve turning to drugs. You might learn to walk away from certain individuals or not go to particular places where you formerly used to go. You may also return to the inpatient program facility for outpatient counseling. This helps many drug users to reintegrate into society and still maintain some source of assistance by going to daily or weekly therapy sessions.
Consider an Outpatient Program
Outpatient programs offer similar assistance to inpatient options such as therapy sessions and counseling, but the patient sleeps in his or her own home and is not confined to the rehabilitation center. Some patients prefer this option because it resembles some form of normality and allows them to potentially work and partake in family activities. It is important to note, though, that a person may require more serious, constant treatment than these outpatient programs can offer. If you are considering seeking treatment for drug addiction, discuss these possibilities with your doctor. He or she will help you decide what program is right for you.
Painkillers and Therapy
Some drug users who have been abusing pain medications like Oxycontin or morphine require pain relief but must find it in other ways than potentially addictive drugs. To address this issue, some people receive methadone, a synthetic narcotic. Individuals in inpatient or outpatient programs may use methadone, as can people who are not seeking any formal treatment but are trying to stop abusing painkillers. Your doctor may prescribe a methadone treatment plan if you have chronic pain issues and are recovering from addiction. Methadone can be given intravenously, via a tablet or as a dispersible. Use of this medication is carefully monitored as it can cause respiratory issues when you first begin or anytime you up your dosage. If you are concerned that you may be abusing prescription painkillers, talk to your physician about Methadone and other options like Suboxone or Narcan.
Working With a Sponsor
Similar to alcoholism treatment, some former drug users require assistance from sponsors. These individuals are often previous addicts themselves or have experiences as therapists or psychiatrists. They meet with patients regularly and are often available at a moment's notice to talk when an individual is feeling vulnerable and triggered. Sponsors can offer help when you need them the most and provide a firm sense of accountability.
To go through treatment successfully, it's important to find the right facility for you. To do so, first talk with your doctor. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should also be factored into your decision.
Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful. Look into potential facilities and learn about their drug policies. Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances or if you have ever had issues with abusing these medications in the past.
You should also note what potential programs to turn to during drug cravings. Some offer excellent nutrition and wellness plans that use healthy eating and exercise to reduce the physical and psychological want or need for a substance. Learning this coping skill is imperative to transitioning back into society, as you will be better prepared to face cravings once you are no longer in drug abuse treatment.
Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. When choosing a treatment facility, be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers. If a well-known drug abuse therapist or hospital recommends a clinic, for example, it is much more likely that you will have a successful treatment experience there.
Finances are another major part in your treatment program choice. Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. To learn what options are financially feasible for you, call your insurance provider and ask about any programs with which they are connected. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment.
Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Make a call to the member services phone line at your insurance company and they can explain both in-network and out-of-network coverage for addiction and drug abuse treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program. If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Drug Abuse Facts
Every illegal use of a drug, from prescription medications to a hit of methamphetamine, creates an addiction risk for the user. One single dose of a club drug, for example, can cause long-term cognitive damage because it changes the chemical makeup of the brain. It is not always the substance that leads to a label of drug abuse. Instead, it is the nature in which the substance is used. For example, you may break a bone and require surgery. You will likely be prescribed some painkillers to promote healing in your body and make you more comfortable. If, however, you find that the medication creates feelings of euphoria so you pretend you need the drug longer than you do in order to get more pills, that is considered drug abuse. It doesn't matter that you have a prescription and the substance is technically legal.
Helping Your Family Cope
You are not the only one affected by your drug abuse. You family and friends may also appreciate going to therapy to learn how to cope with your addiction. Many people attend support meetings or join groups to mingle with others who are close to drug addicts to provide emotional assistance. When you go through treatment, those close to you must also learn to change their mindsets and behaviors to address these changes to the new you. Many patients have to stop associating with some former friends in order to stay away from illicit substances and avoid situations that may trigger drug abuse. Starting a hobby is a good way to meet new people outside of these social circles once you've received treatment.
