I will never go here again!!! My boyfriend took my two children ( a boy age 11 and girl age 5) to this business to get a haircut. He told them he wanted their hair trimmed up. When he got home I immediately left and took the kids back to get a refund. My daughters hair was slanted and the bottom was very choppy looking. My sons was even worse. During the summer we had let him grow it wild, it was below his ears and into his eyes. Imagine my surprise when I saw him and not only was his hair still covering his ears but he now has choppy, uneven bangs!!! It also looked as though she hadn't even touched the back to cut it. When I asked for a refund the lady that had cut their hair came over and began saying that I paid with credit card and it couldn't be refunded and that the manager was not there. I told her that yes it could be refunded and that she needs to call her manager. Then she grabbed my daughter by the shoulders without saying anything to her and forcefully turned her around and then grabbed her head and turned it as well. She said "well if she holds her head like this it is ok." I said no it really isn't and what about my sons hair. She got 3 inches from my face and glared at me for a full minute. She said the man who brought them said to trim it. I told her that means to at least cut it above the ears. Again I asked her to phone her manager. She goes around the wall and has me follow. She speaks Chinese to a woman who then claims to be the manager. ( Remember how she said her manager wasn't there?!) She says the woman has cut hair for 15 years and has never had a complaint, the woman who did the haircut starts getting her scissors out and I told her not to touch my child. This goes back and forth and needless to say I was told I would not get a refund. I was told to come back tomorrow and someone else will cut their hair. I will be going back tomorrow but without the kids and to make sure I get my money back. Stay far away from here!!!! Update: Today (7/30/2013) I went back up to the salon and my money was refunded! I would like to say that I don't want to mislead anyone and that the HAIR SALON IS A SEPERATE BUSINESS FROM THE NAIL SALON. I was previously not aware of this fact. I have had my nails done here in the past and enjoyed the way the staff treated me as well as the wonderful job they did on my nails. I even treated my best friend to a mani/pedi for her birthday and she too was very pleased with the results. I don't want my comment to reflect in any way on the hard working ladies at the nail salon. I also want to say thank you to their manager for making things right although it was not her responsibility to do so. I would recommend this salon at any time if you are looking to get your nails done. On the basis of how I was treated upon my return today I am changing my review from a one star to a four star.
I have been a customer of this salon for years. When I lived in Tahlequah, I made the 3 1/2 hour drive for cuts and color. The products are top quality and so is the personnel. I have gone to Carol but the past 10 years have gone exclusivly to Amy. Both my daughters and my sister go to Amy on my recommendation and have become regular customers as well. I have never recommended Amy to anyone who has not been completely happy with her work. Over the years I have been in a position to observe Amy and Carol with other customers as well and have never seen an unhappy customer or heard other any complaints. I was in the salon when the girl came in complaining about her hair cut that was previously on this site. She stormed in demanding a refund, completely ignoring the fact that another customer was having a shampoo. I told Amy to deal with her and I would wait. Amy was polite and patient and told her she would be happy to fix whatever was bothering her. The girl refused to even sit down and let Amy look at her hair. Instead, she went storming around to other customers asking what they thought of her cut. The other three people told her they didn't see a problem, so she asked me what I thought. By then, she was crying like a five year old. The other people were polite, but I lost my cool and told her she was acting like a child (which she was) and told her she should go home and grow up. As far as I could see, she was a spoiled little drama queen with an exagerrated sense of entiltlement.
I have been a very satisfied customer of Donna's since March. I have been to 4 other lash tech's in Oklahoma since 2011. After my first set of lashes with Donna I knew I would be staying put. I had experienced such unprofessionalism from every other lash professional. I have been overcharged, appt cancelled with little notice, found that the utensils used were not clean and the list goes on! I was honestly about to throw in the towel on lashes. However, then I met Donna. As her superior certification suggests she is at the top of her craft. Yes her place of business happens to be located in her home however she gives you an option of a Medspa location depending on the day of your service. I have visited her location at the medspa and frankly I enjoy her home location because of the warm environment and the feeling of home. Donna can attest it is so peaceful that I am notorious for falling asleep EVERYTIME during my lash application. I am a very loyal customer and spend a great deal of money on various beauty products, I would definitely recommend Donna. She simply is the best. If you have any questions about her quality of service please feel free to ask her for my number and I would gladly give a personal recommendation and account of my services. You won't be let down really! Wanda
I have been getting my hair cut and colored here since Zoe & Company opened. What sent me there was someone else's adorable hair cut, and Tarena has always taken care of me. What I found was someone who listens and takes the time to understand what I have in mind. She has books of pictures, stays up on the current hair trends, and gives me her honest opinion. It's not always what I want to hear, but isn't that what you want? Someone who will tell you straight up that the haircut you want that looks darling on someone else will look poopy on you? I never fail to get complements on my hair, and this has been over the course of YEARS! If you want a salon that will give you exactly what you ask for, even though it makes you look like an old hag, don't go to Zoe and Company. Prices are comparable to any nice salon, maybe less. The atmosphere is very friendly, but professional. Tarena has many long time clients, so don't be surprised if you have to wait several weeks for an appointment. Plan ahead - it's worth the wait! The only negative I can think of is that I usually fix my hair differently when I get home, but I don't care because I know my cut will be perfect!
I have been going to Anns for 28 years. We went there once a week for years. In all that time their food has been consistently wonderful. It is a very small place, but the service is quick and the food is always fresh and hot. We have ordered other things occasionally and it was always very good but we are addicted to that chicken fry!! The house dressing, garlic ranch is made fresh, it's creamy, mild and delish. I could say the same about the cream gravy, made fresh, creamy, mild, and delish. There are other places we like to go with great food but what keeps us coming around so often to Ann's is great food at a low price. In 28 years the only problem we had was the chicken fry getting a little bit too done. That has happened 3 or 4 times. We miss the original waitresses now. The ones that watched us become a family and watched our kids grow up. They were there so long, they felt like family to us. They still have great service and a lot of memorabilia mostly from the 50's, 60's. Oh Yummm, now I think I'm fixin' ta git me som'a that chick'n fry.
I discovered Sheila at Ladies and Gentleman's about 6 years ago. She convinced me to let her try a custom color she formulated just for me and even though I was skeptical I was intrigued by what she suggested. She very effortlessly and quicker than I could have imagined wove into my hair 4 different colors. The colors blended perfectly and just seemed to melt into each other and yet there was definite artistry to where the color was placed. Shelia finished off my custom color with a precise haircut that she cut to my hair type and facial structure. I honestly had never felt so beautiful and when I drove away I could not stop looking in the mirror of the car or running my fingers through the new cut. It was nothing short of perfect. Being in my 40's I have had many stylists over the years but I have never been completely happy. I now fly to Sheila at Ladies and Gentleman's from out of state to have my hair done by her. I simply don't want anyone else to touch her beautiful work of art! -- Marilee Mahan
After waiting what seems like an eternity for the 44 Diner to open, it finally has -- AND IT HAS BEEN WORTH THE WAIT!!!! A very well-done renovation of an old Sonic at the corner of Kelley and NE 63rd, the 44 Diner has the nicest wait staff and really great food. I am a breakfast-at-lunch lover, and their pancakes are delicious. Their club and blt sandwiches are classic and tasty. The french fries are good, but the onion rings don't appeal to me -- too much breading, which is a preference for some. Friends had the catfish and told me it was the best they have had in OKC. I haven't tried their burgers yet, but listening to diners around me who ordered them, it sounds like they will be worth trying. Oh, and best of all, the prices are very modest for the high quality you receive. I have eaten there about 20 times, and even if it weren't convenient and close to my work, I would still be a regular. I encourage you to try it -- I know you will like it, and I want the 44 Diner to be successful for a long time!
I've been going to Amber (owner of Salon Endeavor) since i was 15 (I am now 21) and she does a fantastic job! Most of the time i go in and say " Do whatever you want!" and it always comes out perfect! Amber has been in the business for a long time and really knows her stuff! I recommend her and the salon to anyone and everyone! I always get compliments on my hair, even if its been months since i've seen her! I know Amber is very particular about the staff she chooses and I know that they have strict requirements that have to meet in order to be a stylist at her salon. Amber has built her salon upon her faith in Christ and in turn has created a cheerful and positive atmosphere for her salon, but not matter how you look, what your life style is, or what you believe, everyone is welcomed to the salon and always made sure that your visit is comfortable and successful. So i say make your own judgments by finding out for yourself just how fantastic Amber and her salon is!
Donna has been doing my lashes (and the occasional facial) for almost a year. The lashes are WONDERFUL and look natural (but gorgeously natural!). I've had numerous compliments; and one of my favorites was from a saleswoman who told me I had beautiful eyelashes; and then went on to say "I bet you've heard about your eyelashes all your life". That's exactly the look I want ! Each lash is applied individually (which is one of the things that makes this pricier than your $25 special); but those $25 specials generally look like fuzzy caterpillars. Not a look I want! I've been to the Northside medspa location; and Donna's home studio, and prefer the home studio myself. It's cozy, comfortable, stylish and just as professional in appearance as any "spa" location I've been to. If you want professionally applied beautiful lashes, see Donna. If you want a pair of fuzzy caterpillars attacking your eyes, stick with the cheapo specials.
My mom started going to Julie several years ago. My mom has ridiculously hard hair and JULIE was always able to find different styles that looked great on my mom. The first time I went to Julie was on my wedding day (without a trial run), needless to say I didn't even have time to be worried but prayed for a miracle. She did an amazing job on my bridesmaids' hair and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect look on my special day. I've been going back ever since and every time she teaches me something new and I appreciate the fact that she gets to know my hair and works to improve it with every visit. She always goes above and beyond. Who massages your neck after having to take so long so wax your face because you're so hairy? Yeah, she's pretty awesome!! She's a whiz at thinning facial hair (something I wasn't even able to get thinned with several laser removal treatments)! LOVE HER!!...oh and I can't think of anyone else as reasonably priced.
