I have been going to this salon for over 2 years. They recently "upgraded" the salon and added fancy (and flimsy) spa chairs will glass bowls that are apparently only made for skinny women/women under 200 pounds. If you are plus size, they will not accommodate you and I was turned away from making another pedicure appointment due to the type of chairs/soaking tubs they have in the salon. This is extremely offensive and discriminatory to find that I salon I have given alot of my hard earned money to would have equipment that only a select few can use. I also received other services at this salon and was pleased for the most part, until this matter arose. After this incident, I could never frequent a salon that discriminates against plus size women and only seems to cater to the thin.
We have very high-end pedicure units that are state-of-the-art with regards to sanitation and comfort for both our technicians and our guests. They are approved for body weight up to 250 pounds. We do accommodate clients of all sizes for all of the salon and spa services that we offer. Unfortunately, one of the pedicure tubs had been cracked as a result of our lack of compliance with the manufacturer's weight restrictions. We did attempt to offer alternatives, such as a pedicure performed in an esthetic room where the feet would be wrapped in hot towels rather than soaked. However, our attempts were not well received. Our intention was certainly not to discriminate, nor to insult a guest.
