I came in for a men's haircut today and got a cut by a man named Jackie. He was too busy talking to his buddy, he happened to cut the side of my ear and it hasn't stopped bleeding for 3 hours. I've had to hold a napkin over it because it was going through the bandage. I called in to let the owner know of Jackie's negligence but she denied the accusation. She told me people get cut all the time and I was surprised. I do not recommend this place. In fact, I recommend you stay away and never come in here
I would NOT recommend getting your nails done here. I asked for a Full Set with an "American" polish. The woman (Amy) who did my nails did a really horrible job....I don't think she new what she was doing, My nails look like I glued them on myself and the polish, which cost me $5 extra was done sloppy - my nails looked like there is no polish on them...the owner commented to the tech that a second coat was needed - the tech rolled her eyes, threw on a second coat of the pink polish, then walked me to the dryer. Maybe I just got a terrible, inexperienced nail tech...but, first impressions are lasting...there won't be a second time!
When I first started going here it was great! Now it is the worst one I have been to and they rip you off!!!! The last times that I have been there it got worse every time!! It started when I went to get a refill one day and the guy that works there did my nails he was very rough jerking my arm and fingers around and maybe an hour later 2 of my nails broke!!!!!!!!!!! They always talk in there language and you can tel they are talking about people cause they all look at the person and laugh!!!! They don't ask how u are not very friendly. The last time I was there I had a hair apt at 1 I got there at 12 and asked if there was enough time to get my nails refilled I do have the gel nails so I was expecting 45 mins maybe and hr at the most it took her till 1:45 to do my nails and they looked really bad when she was done!!! She told me it would $42 and asked if i wanted to pay now or when i was done my hair so i said when i was done and still tipped her 10 bucks. When i was done and ready to pay she said o i mess up it 47 now and could not tell me why i had no broken nails and the gel nails were new. I called every other nail place around and a refill is 30 bucks I can't believe they charge u almost 50 bucks for a crappy job. I will never go here again. They make u feel very uncomfortable the whole time you are there!!!!!!!!!!! Save yourself the time
