To make a long story short I thought I would look much better as a brunette instead of my existing blonde color so I went to a hair stylist whom I will not mention here and made the change to a mid level brunette color. Well I did look different and I thought the new color would grow on me. I got home and my husband Tom was very upset and said he loved my hair all these years. He had never commented on my hair ever. Go fiqure Men! I looked in the mirror and looked at a recent photo and he was right my old color looked much better on me. I don't know much but my friends sister went through this process and it was difficult to return to her original color.My sister told me I should find someone that does these color corrections all the time. I agreed and starting hunting on the net for a stylist and customers that had gone through this process. I finally found Jade. I brought a recent photo of me and had a consultation with her and was impressed by her honesty and knowledge about color. She said it usually takes two apointments about a month apart form each other to get it right. She even said to me that some people's hair can never get back to the same original color. I felt comfortable with Jade and made the appointment.It took three and a half hours and about 80% the way through the process Jade smiled at me and she said that the color would be spot on. I don't know how she knew because my hair was still wet and full of color. Well she was exactingly right. After washing my hair and blowing it out I was in tears with happiness with the results. I looked in the mirror and at my photo and was amazed. I was so happy and Tom was thrilled and said please do't do that again. Jade I don't know how to say thank you enough but I thought by writing this review would be a start. Regards Blair
Okay, this is the deal. Phantasy Hair Salon owners “say” they do not accept reservations. In actuality they do. If you go in and sign their book and come back hours later, you are the next person in line.This is what happened to me…I went in and saw 7 names on the list. I sat and waited as 4 people got their haircut. In walks a family of 5 and they go and sit down without writing their name on the list. I figured then that something was up, but I wasn’t sure. When the 4th person was finished getting his haircut, 1 member of the family of 5 walked over and sat in the barber’s chair.Sure, their names were on the list a page before mine…but when I sat down I hadn’t figured on waiting for 12 people (or possibly more…how far does the list go back?). Someone should have told me OR they need a better system.Poof! 30 minutes of my day was wasted PLUS the time it took to drive there. Why not simply accept reservations instead of wasting people’s time?!?If you want a good haircut, these folks can deliver…BUT you’ll NEVER know what the wait time will be once you make the long drive there. I’ve gone to Phantasy Hair salon and had to leave SEVERAL times either because the wait list was too long or because there was an unexpected sign on the door during regular business hours announcing that they were closed that day. In actuality, I’ve had to leave the salon more times than I’ve received a haircut…so the odds of winning big on the slots at the hotels on the strip are better than getting a haircut at Phantasy Hair Salon.Good luck to you if you’re willing to gamble a good part of your day! I'm not anymore.
Very disappointed! I'd called ahead to let them know I wanted to adopt a kitty. They said they'd be open untion 2 on Christmas Eve. I rearranged my work schedule to get out by 1pm, bolted from Henderson, eager to add a new animal to my home for Christmas. I'd bought a new litter box, had a vet appointment set up, new toys, prepared my 1st cat for his new pal....when I got there, I was told you need to show up an hour before they close for adoption. If I'd been informed of this by the agent when I called last week, I would have not gone to such inconvenience. Then, I was informed if I picked out an animal that VERY minute, they'd be willing to let me have it. NOT the way you select a family member. I tried to look at a couple of cats for a split second, not liking this procedure one bit. Then, I was told they were simply closing adoptions altogether at 1:30 & it was too late. I was heartbroken. I sent out party invitations to meet my new addition on Tuesday & will have to explain what happened. They are a no kill shelter & deserve credit for that in full. But, as a business, they need proper customer service training. In any other business, this would be taken as false information & misinforming a customer & I'd pursue it further. I won't since they do necessary work. But I won't go back there now. Not only the foul smell, but Lied sheler is not a no kill & my heart directs me there now. Very disappointed.

I absolutely LOVE what KG Dominican Beauty Salon did with my hair. The results are amazing!!!!! I've gone to the best salons around the world and I have not been able to leave with the satisfaction that I received from KG Dominican Beauty Salon. Gerald is the best when it comes to colors, highlights, and explaining what he is doing as he goes along, and Maggie is the best I know to get my curls bone straight, with attention to details, even the minor ones. She's fabulous! I as well have had the pleasure of the owner Katherine to do my hair and even without using the flatiron, she made my hair bone straight and had me laughing and having a good time while doing so. Amazing!!!!!! Furthermore The people are fabulous and do endeavor to do great business. I really appreciate them all!!! Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood, and all I come across in Las Vegas will be sent their way. I will be sure to tell my contacts that KG Dominican Beauty Salon is the way to go!!!!!!!!

I read the reviews ahead of time, so my husband and I had previewed the dogs online and had 3 in mind when we went in. We saw the 1st dog and the feeling wasn't there. Same with the second. We were getting nervous when the third walked out and it was Cody!!! The staff all had frowns on their faces because he had picked and not chose 5 times earlier that day and wasn't in the "mood" to be nice. I got my warning! Then the cutest little guy on 4 feet walked into my life!! They warned me he was timid and shy and would need to be helped to "come out of his shell". Today, Cody lives in a house with 2 cats. He walks 2-3 times a day for a 1/2 - 1 mile. He passes his Puppy Orientation Class. He loves to go for rides in the truck with my husband. And he has discovered going to the Petstore is always fun!!I am aware that Dewey rescued my dog from a kill-shelter. Then, he spent a long time before I got to him. Thank you for being Cody's Gurdian Angels!! Your work for him has touched my life in a way I don't have words for!On behalf of our Family & That includes Cody, Thank you!

I came to Paul after a haircutting disappointment. I have fine fragile hair and really didn't like what I was seeing in the mirror. I contacted Paul with Vegas Best Extensions and immediately realized that I was in very good hands. He spent quality time asking questions about my expectations, hair habits and and then examined my hair color and hair condition. He suggested Hair Locs, best for my situation.The results were a hair dream/ hair bucket list come true! Paul offers the most beautiful human hair with a perfect color match. I have not once regreted my decision. My initial appointment was in September of 2016 and I am still using the original hair. I've received frequent compliments and no one suspects that this is not my own lovely hair.Looking for a true quality stylist? Look no further.
My hair stylist was Toya and she is absolutely amazing.. I'm rating the salon so poorly though because the other "stylist" were completely unprofessional.. I was unaware I was going to a hair salon so I brought my son with me and while I was being serviced I could clearly hear the other "stylist" complaining about the fact that he was there.. and even though he walked off once it wasn't like he was being loud or unruly and they were being completely rude, claiming they needed a big sign outside saying no children allowed.. and as a person who does hair myself I find that very unwelcoming to mothers who can't get a sitter.. and the way it was said was just flat out inappropriate.. I would love to get my hair done by Toya again but I'd never go back to this crappy shop
I came to Shag Me to have a wedding hair/make-up trial, and although their website doesn't list that they do make-up, they indeed do offer that service. It costs $60 to have your make-up done by them.They did a great job of doing my make-up into that retro 50s style. Another girl did my hair, named Erika. She did the Victory rolls the way I wanted them to be and also offered to trim my bangs for free since they were getting a bit long. I wanted that Bettie Page look to it, and Erika did just that.It costs $50 for an up-do, but since this was just a trial, the price was cut to half. Not bad prices, especially since there are so few salons out there that still know how to do these classic looks.
While becoming a florist doesn't require any formal education, floral designers must know how to care for the plants they use and which ones work best for which season or event. Additionally, a skilled floral arranger must also be familiar with the cultural symbolism behind each flower. For instance, carnations symbolize beauty and pride while daisies represent innocence and purity.
If you plan to give someone a flowering plant as a gift, then a good florist can direct you to the right one. They may also help you choose flowers to convey platonic or romantic love.
Many floral designers provide a host of services to meet customer demand throughout the year.
Most florists, whether they work at a chain or independent flower shop, both online or in a brick-and-mortar store, offer pre-arrangements of flowers. This means the floral designer has a selection of roses, tulips and other popular kinds of blossoms designed in arrangement that customers can simply buy on the spot instead of telling the florist what kind of flower pattern they want.
Have you ever purchased a get-well basket featuring sunflowers or an array of springtime flowers for Mother's Day? If so, you most likely bought a pre-arrangement that the floral designer put together ahead of time.
Buying a pre-arranged bouquet is a great option if you don't know what blooms or plants to purchase but you need flowers for a particular occasion.
Pre-designed arrangements are not original, one-of-a-kind designs, but the upside to buying pre-arrangements is they already come with a fixed price attached. Customers may simply walk in and spend $50 on a Valentine's Day bouquet as opposed to paying the florist a commission for an original design that could fetch a much higher price.
Having both an eye for design as well as good people and customer service skills is a must for any florist. These professionals work with clients to find the best flowers and custom-designed arrangements appropriate for the event or occasion. A commission to create a table piece, wreath or other type of design is typically much more expensive than a pre-arrangement, as it may not be made up of plants the florist already has on hand.
There's always a demand for florists and their creations year-round as people celebrate and commemorate the special moments in their lives. Whether you're getting married or remembering a loved one that just passed, flower arrangements and wreaths are traditional items we all use to help mark the important dates, stages and occasions in our lives.
One type of event most floral designers work on is weddings. Professional florists will collaborate with the bride and groom to formulate a design scheme that complements the event's overall colors and layout. Depending on what the couple wants and can afford, a floral designer may create the bridal bouquet along with streams of flowers for the wedding venue, table arrangements and vases for the reception afterward.
The prices for hiring a florist to do a wedding vary broadly because it not only depends on how many blooming plants you want, but also how widely available the particular flowers are.
More exotic types of blossoms, such as orchids, are pricier than your typical rose. Your bill could also fluctuate depending on how complicated the design is to make and if the flowers you choose are in season or not.
Keeping that in mind, florists are like any other tradesperson - your bill will reflect the materials they used and the time and labor that went into making up the designs.
Some floral designers also charge delivery fees to transport the flowers, vases and other materials to wedding or reception sites. Remember, it's not only the bride that needs flowers. Bridesmaids and the mother of the bride might also carry corsages and the groom and groomsmen sometimes festoon their jackets with boutonnieres. Don't forget about the flower girl, as well.
In all, the average cost to outfit a wedding with flowers is about $700. Some florists advise people to set aside 10 to 15 percent of the ceremony's budget for floral decorations.
Funerals are another major life event we commemorate with flowers. Florists may furnish sympathy flowers for the observance and lay sprays or baskets of plants around the church, synagogue or funeral home to help attendees with the grieving process. Designers also make floral wreaths and crosses to set up at the venue or in the cemetery, as well as special casket arrangements so family and friends may show their respect for the deceased.
Many customers choose traditional roses, lilies and carnations to send to a bereaved family, but florists are also able to personalize arrangements to your liking.
Just like other ceremonies that call for flowers, the price depends on the number of blossoms and what type of plants you want, along with the complexity of the arrangement. A complete funeral floral package that includes sprays along the casket, flower decorations for the venue and flowers for the participants can run from $200 to $800.
Meanwhile, the usual sympathy bouquet or vase runs between $40 and $80.
You might think Valentine's Day would be the busiest day for a florist, but the day of love comes in second place behind Mother's Day. According to a number of studies, people do more online searches for flowers in anticipation of the May holiday than they do for Valentine's Day.
In fact, this day is inextricably linked with flowers, as Congress first issued a Mother's Day proclamation in 1913 asking all federal officials to wear a white carnation to commemorate their mothers.
Many children wish their mothers well on the day by sending a bouquet of carnations, roses, violets or tulips.
Coming in second place as the busiest holiday for florists is Valentine's Day. When Feb. 14 arrives, so do many people looking for arrangements to send to their loved ones. Just like Mother's Day, this holiday is very lucrative for floral designers. Americans typically spend tens of millions of dollars on their significant others every Feb. 14, and flowers, especially long-stemmed red roses, are a popular way to show someone you care.
Valentine's Day goes to show that a gift of fresh-cut flowers never goes out of style. However, it does go up in price - quite a lot, actually. The price of a bouquet of roses usually doubles on Feb. 14 before it goes back down the next business day. Expect to pay up to $100 for red roses from a flower shop on Valentine's Day. Therefore, if you're looking for a deal, it's smart to buy your bouquets a few days ahead of time and keep them in a vase with water so they stay fresh.
Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah
The holiday season is also one known for festive floral arrangements. Many families look to florists to come up with a Thanksgiving table set piece or a traditional cornucopia featuring plants with autumnal colors and gourds. Many churches and individuals also spring for flowering plants to help usher in Christmastime. Many florists sell living yuletide decorative plants such as ivy, holly, poinsettias, mistletoe and even miniature Christmas trees.
Many flower shops and floral arrangers also design centerpieces especially for the eight nights of Hanukkah. Online and brick-and-mortar florists offer blue and white flowers, usually arranged with candles in between the blossoms.
Easter and Passover
Religious holidays held in spring also keep flower shops busy as they design orders for families, churches and synagogues. Many shoppers are on the lookout for bunches of mixed flowers pre-arranged in bouquets or vases by florists. Lilies, as well as daffodils and tulips, are especially popular around these spring holidays.
Hindu and Buddhist Ceremonies
Flowers, especially the lotus, figure prominently in Hindu and Buddhist religious ceremonies, as well as in these two ancient religions' wedding customs. Many florists provide garlands of flowers to decorate and festoon the functions with.
Remember that it doesn't need to be a holiday to purchase flowers. Floral designers also make commissioned or pre-arranged flowers to take to sick relatives, friends and colleagues recovering at home or in the hospital. Many florists also make designs for newborn babies, too.
While the majority of their work is devoted to making eye-catching and pleasing creations with plants, florists can help you with much more than just finding the right flowers for your next event or party.
In fact, a good floral designer can be a fountain of knowledge. These experts can inform you of the best ways to take care of your plants or how to properly cut the stems of flowers to ensure they last longer in your vase.
The next time you're out buying an arrangement, ask your florist which type of vase to use with which flower and how much water and plant food you should use to prolong the life of your bouquet or potted plant. Even though retail florists don't usually grow the blooms or plants themselves, they do know the best ways to keep your arrangement looking fresh for longer.
Local flower shops or gardening stores used to be the only game in town when it came to selling real or fake floral arrangements until supermarkets and drugstore chains entered the business by offering inexpensive pre-arrangements for holidays and other occasions. However, the number of brick-and-mortar florists is further on the decline as more customers choose to purchase bouquets, wreaths and other greenery online.
Even though one exists in a virtual capacity while the other is located in a physical setting, there aren't too many differences between online and brick-and-mortar flower shops.
Many online stores offer pre-arrangements of flowers you can purchase, as well as the ability to form your own design and decoration.
Online flower shops, in fact, work with wholesale florists near your area to ensure they deliver your order promptly. Since cut flowers don't have a long shelf life, these Internet-based companies essentially take your request and contract it out to a florist in your locale to design it and drop it off at your home or office.
While purchasing flowers online is convenient - you can shop any time of the day without leaving your house - there are a few things the online stores cannot offer patrons. You can't smell the sweet fragrance of tulips or roses in cyberspace and you can't touch the petals or leaves before you buy the plant. Additionally, when you buy a bouquet over the Internet, you're basing your decision on a stock photo of the item instead of the actual one that will arrive at your doorstep.
Not all varieties of roses or violets look the same and an approximation of a flower isn't the same as the specific one you could end up receiving.
This is one advantage physical brick-and-mortar flower shops have over their online competitors. Making the trip to your local florist means you can actually get the chance to stop and smell the roses.
