In response to Cary R.'S review from the owner: I usually don't "challenge" guest's reviews, but I felt it necessary in this instance. Cary R's information is correct regarding making her appointment. She's also correct in noting the fact that she didn't make her appointment. The point she didn't make is that not only did she not make the appointment, but she didn't have the courtesy to call and cancel, or explain the situation - she just decided to "no-show, no-call". We always charge full service price in these situations. It has nothing to do with us "hurting that bad for money that they have to rip off their customers" as she states in her review. We pay our therapist to show up and perform her service. Because we care about our employees, we pay them even if the client doesn't show up. If Cary R. would have at least called and cancelled or re-scheduled, there would have been a possibility that we could have filled that spot with another guest. Because she didn't, the spot remained unbooked and we paid the therapist. Our front desk staff doesn't state "you may be charged a service fee". Our policy is clearly stated in our menu, online and over the phone. It's why we require a credit card to book appointments. I'm very happy that Cary R. at least admitted that we offered her 50% off her next service (in fact, the price we quoted her was in excess of 50% off). It was a very generous offer that we usually don't extend to guests who "no-show, no-call". This obviously was not good enough for her, causing her to post poor reviews all over the internet. I'm sure most reasonable people will agree that my response has merit.
There truly is nothing better than going to Planet Beach River Ridge! Whenever I am stressed or just need a pick me up, I know right where to go! The first time I visited Planet Beach, I went in expecting only to see a bunch of tanning beds. Boy was I wrong! They have a wide variety of unique spa services! I walk into the spa and I am immediately greeted by a warm and friendly smile! While the staff if getting me ready for my services, I look around and notice how clean the spa is! Once it is time for me to enjoy my services, the girls walk me back to my room, which is set and ready for me with a towel and a mint on the chair. Now I get to relax and enjoy my services! The best part about my membership is how affordable it is! It seems so little compared to the results & service I receive! Not only am I getting a healthy glow from tanning and Mystic, I also get to relax is hydration while also moisturizing my skin! I have and will continue to recommend Planet Beach River Ridge to all my family, friends, and co-workers!!
I was staying at the Hampton Inn on Gravier. A great hotel that I use every time I'm visit NOLA. Recommended by the conceirge was Spa Atlantis for a nice deep tissue massage. The place was beautiful and tranquil. The staff was warm and welcoming, Zoe who performed my massage was incredible. I felt completely at ease as she worked her magic hands to take me to another place. I was incredilby happy with my service, and returned the next morning to have treat myself to a delux pedicure. Sylvia was sweet, professional, and warm. She was very detailed, went out of her way to make me feel at ease while she worked. She offered me wine or champagne, which was a nice touch. I didn't feel rushed as I did at other spas I visited on past visits. I found the prices to be moderate but well worth it and will definitely book ahead on future visits.
I have walked out of paris parker salons with nothing but beautiful cuts and color. I switch between about two different colorists, depending on who is available. I think that the training program is far above par and I would let any of the interns style my hair. I read a review about the "Paris Parer School" but I think that the person is referring to the Aveda Institute in Metaire, which I too have had bad expieriences. However, Aveda is it's own school separate from Paris Parker. I totally agree to never EVER go to the Aveda institute!!! You will regret it!!!
This is the first review I've written for a hair stylist, ever: Whether Paris Parker at One Canal Place in NOLA is on your way or out of the way, it'll be worth your while to visit JASON ASHFORD for a haircut and/or style. Jason has cut my hair 3 times -- and it's clear he's passionate about his work. He's patient, consistent and a good listener. And most important, he knows how to cut long layers so that they move just right. Plus I paid only $25 for a cut that was well worth $100. Give JASON a call today. His prices may soon be going up.
Booked a 60 min massage that due to traffic I was going to be late to. They were flexible and moved the time back 15 mins. Also, Joel was awesome, awesome, awesome! Best deep tissue massage I've had in years and he was extremely knowledgeable & explained why I was tense & had knots in certain areas. Worked out the knots gently. And because I was so tense, he extended my time with no charge (of course he didn't have an appt after me). Awesome and I'll def go bk when I visit the city again.
Dr. Susan Glaudi makes the experience of erasing wrinkles relaxing and basically pain free. I first went to Dr. Glaudi after purchasing a Deal on a social media website - I was hooked. Botox, Juvederm and a complete series of Parisian Peels later my skin looks and feels terrific. The Benev line of skincare products she sells maintains my skin tone and texture between sessions. I highly recommend Dr. Glaudi for all of your skin care needs!
The girls who work at this location are so sweet. They absolutely made me feel so comfortable and really took time to explain everything and show me around. The spa is beautiful and so relaxing. The services are amazing. I actually have time to go to "the spa" now and I can afford as many services as I want. I wish more people knew about this place! You have to give them a call or just drop in the girls will take care of you I am sure of it.
Paris Parker is fantastic!! I have been seeing Keeley at Paris Parker for the last 8 yrs and I couldn't imagine anyone else coloring my hair!! I live in Lafayette and drive to New Orleans just to have my hair done! She is sooo worth the drive! The staff is great and everyone is really friendly at the magazine st location. I always leave the salon looking and feeling great! Can't wait for my next appointment!
I was new to NO and the most difficult task is finding a stylist for relaxed hair. The salon is modern yet warm. my stylist Jeanene is professional and I was more pleased w/her services than my Houston stylist and I was very fond of her. The owner stylist is very pleasent and inviting as well. Now I am at home in NO. Lisa Turner
