I am back from my honeymoon!!!!! I do have to say this, I was going to write this review and saw the one that another person wrote so I am even more compelled to write this review about Kathy and Lemongrass Salon and Spa! I was referred to Kathy at Lemongrass by a friend who had her wedding hair done by Kathy. She, might I add was very pleased and so were the other 8 people Kathy did! My friend isn't the only person I know that has used Lemongrass for weddings and special occasions; there are several! I am sorry that the other bride didn't have the same experience that I and my friends have had:( We all had a blast!!!! I can not imagine Kathy or anyone at the salon being rude (she just isn't that way). Maybe the bride was stressed or is just being dramatic. Kathy made all of us in our wedding party feel so welcome and she did an awesome job on our hair. Kathy got rave reviews on what she and her staff did to our hair at the wedding and reception. When I went in for my consultation Kathy stressed how important it was to be on time the day we were to come and get done up!!! Kathy told us what to bring, what time she would need to get started on me so I could be done on time. She told me during my consultation that she had another large wedding party where the brides maids showed up 45 minutes late and the bride was 2 hours late!!!! Kathy said she thought it was important to really stick to a schedule so that everyone could enjoy themselves and alleviate stress, so we did! Great call on her part! I had no idea how much stress being late would have caused until I saw the time and special attention she gave all of us. My brides maids and mother said they would drive to see her to get their color and cuts! Two of them have already been there and they LOVED what she did! I am going to get my hair touched up and cut after Thanksgiving!!!YAY!!! I would highly recommend Kathy Shelley at Lemongrass over anyone!!! Anyone can write anything and I can tell you I am a person that has had the wonderful experience and will always be thankful that Kathy and her staff were so professional and sweet!!!! I suggest you listen to what she has to say; be on time. Make sure you take notes and tell everyone in the party what will be going on and what time and how important it is for everyone to be on the same page and on time!!!.
The spa is warm and welcoming. The physicians, technicians, and staff are always pleasant and helpful. I have always been pleased with the treatment…
Pros: It doesn't take too long to get box braids installed. It took me 5 hours and I have a big head lol. The setup is decent. They have a nice TV.Cons: I've only had my box braids installed for a couple weeks and they look like I've had them installed for a couple months. Seven braids have already slipped out and the ends look really raggedy. The hair they use seems to be low quality. When I lived in Illinois, I've had micro braids, box braids, and Senegalese twists done, all while having short natural hair and have never had this issue before. The hair remained smooth and intact and I was able to keep them in for two months before taking them out. I might have to take these out sooner though :(
They are very good with time management. I was in and out in about 3.5 hours which is the first for me with micros and a very important plus for me. However, I am not completely happy with my micros. I feel they could have been alot better. I understand my hair is short but i still they could have looked better because my hair is not that short the front. Plus, they told me an original price which was higher than what they had posted when I got there. They charged me more for my hair being short (which I did not mind) but I think they could have told me of that possibility when I told them my hair was short over the phone. i do not think I would go back.
Shannon Kennedy gives the best and most affordable hair cuts of anyone I've encountered in Alabama. She understands exactly what I describe and also offers her professional opinions for what would look best on me. I've never been disappointed! She is awesome! I also highly recommend her for keratin treatments. The system she uses is faster than most, more affordable and incredibly effective. I feel like a superhero defying Alabama humidity for about 4-5 months. Highly recommend!!!!
I went to natural mystique to get my fro shaped. I was very apprehensive because the last time that I tried to get my hair shaped the person that did it cut too much hair off and it ended up being uneven. However, the stylist at natural mystique did a wonderful job. She understood natural hair. she was able to comb my hair without hurting me and she used scissors instead of clippers to shape my hair. When I left my hair was perfectly shaped and beautiful.
Came here for a couples massage. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing. They offered us water or wine to start and allowed us time to relax in the waiting room. The massage therapists were both very skilled and professional. They had us fill out a questionnaire to give them an idea of our experience level with massages and to specify any problem areas that we wanted them to focus on.
New to the Montgomery area and was looking for a salon who specialize in box braids. Looked through the yellow pages and happen to call this shop and I was happy I choose them. The shop was nice and clean. I gad two women to braid my hair and I was in and out in about 3.5 hours, less than I have ever expierenced. Yes I would recommend to others and yes I would go back to them to get my hair braided.
I followed my stylist, Debbie, to D'Markos and am so happy that I did. At my first appointment, Anita made me feel like I'd been coming here for years. I have had just about every service D'Markos offers - hair cut, color, waxing, massage, and facial - and have been pleased with every service they offer. I have purchased several gifts from the boutique as well.
I started going to Kong's ROOT SALON in August of 2016. He has cut and styled my hair fabulously, every time. I totally trust him to choose how to pamper my hair perfectly. The salon has several wonderful stylists so you can definitely find someone to handle any type of hair. There is a massage therapist on site too.
I have been going to Ashley once a month for over two years, and she has done a terrific job every time. I would pay two to three times as much in some of the other area salons. I have long and difficult hair, but I always walk out of the salon looking great. Well, not ME, but my hair does.
