I received a gift certificate and that is what brought me to the salon. When I asked the prices for the same services that I receive at my regular salon, I was quoted $27 more than what I usually pay. So I opted to settle for a lesser pedicure without shellac. The pedicure was fine, but my toena…

Honestly, Melissa changed by life. I am so indebted to her. I am in my 40s, and have super fine hair, that began thinning at the crown 13 years ago after the birth of my child. I have spent over a decade battling it. I have had every blood test known to man. In sum, it’s heredity, and a hormone imbalance that only menopause will cure. Even so, I’ve tried everything. oils, vitamins, massage, Nioxin, Minoxidil, bio-identicals, Rx meds. I spent a fortune, with no results. The older I got, the more it damaged my self-esteem. When I looked down, or when you stand or sit behind me, you could see my scalp and thin patches. I became a master of concealment. The side part, strategic hairspray, hair fibers, hair pieces. Clip ins that hurt like heck and damaged my hair further. It was exhausting, sad, and so time consuming! Finally, I gave up. I started looking into extensions. Honestly, I was very skeptical. The last thing I wanted was to further my hair loss with “friction alopecia.” I researched nearly all extension stylists in SA. I eliminated the “jack of all, master of none” or one’s that are self-declared specialists who trained via YouTube. I was almost ready to give up. And then I came across “Extensions of Yourself” and Melissa. What a difference! First of all, Melissa is an educated, certified specialist, trained in a variety of methods, has seen it all, & knows her stuff. And it is quite clear that her goal is to help people, not make $. Her compassion is obvious as is her sensitivity to emotions surrounding hair loss. She truly understands what it is like to feel embarrassed about hair. I’ve never met anyone who “gets it” the way she does. In a free consultation, she carefully goes over your options, the prices, and what type of service will best fit your life style. There is no hard sell. She was honest and explained to me that HairDreams extensions can be reused two times, so you don’t have to buy new extensions in 6 months. But others, like Great Lengths, are used once and that’s it, you have to pay for both labor, and new extensions every 6 months or so. Her point was: you can opt for cheaper extensions, but it is false economy if you plan on keeping them longterm. I had been to countless salons that pushed the lower end extensions, fully aware that it means more $$$ for them. After the consult, Melissa encouraged me to think about it for awhile, even when I was ready to whip out my checkbook that very moment! So, I took my time. The cost was reasonable and under market for SA, far less than most salons. I added up all the money I spent on products, the time, the emotional toll it was taking. Two weeks later, I set up my appointment. The hair salon is intimate. You get personal attention without having to deal with the group of gossiping women. It is just you, and Melissa. The process took about 6 hours. I am hyperactive -- but somehow the time flew by. Melissa she puts earbuds in, and listens to music, leaving you free to work on a laptop (free wifi!), read, or whatever. She doesn’t waste your time taking personal calls, texting, or gossiping with other stylists. When she was done, I didn’t even recognize myself. I knew I’d feel better, but I didn’t imagine how much decent hair could improve appearance, and in turn---confidence! It is weird, but having normal hair, can make all your other features look better as well. My natural thin hair emphasized any flaw in my skin, All in all, it has been a life-changing, wonderful experience with Extensions of Yourself. I told Melissa, “I think I will die with my hair extensions in” and I meant it. I could never go back to the struggle I had before I met Melissa. She is truly a blessing. I will be a lifelong client.
I was so not impressed with the service here or the knowledge of the stylist. I've been natural over 8 years and I've successfully cared for my own hair and am usually hesitant to allow others to care for my hair due to previous experience from cocky stylists. I thought this would be a better experience after reading reviews but on second look I can only assume that those with a positive experience probably actually think their curls are a "problem" to be "managed". I on the other hand love my healthy, thick, tightly curled hair. First the stylist used horrible washing technique with shampoo further tangling my hair and poorly cleansing and conditioning. Then proceeded to rip the hell out of my hair with a denman brush and blow dryer without adequately or gently detangling first. I should have known better due to the fact that she obviously disliked and could not care for her own "natural" hair because of the obvious bad sew in weave she had in her hair. And her own professed use of a "lil" relaxer to help her own curls blend with weave.... All I originally wanted was a trim because I haven't trimmed my hair in a while and during our consultation she said that she would just blow dry my hair before trimming. She then proceeded to flat iron my hair. Also with poor technique in my opinion. Hopefully once I wash this mess out my curls will revert back to their original beauty and the cut won't be completely horrible. I first went here for a trim to cut off frayed ends and single strand knots after going about 1.5 years without professional trim... But after all the stress and pulling I feel like I just have additional wear and tear on my hair... Awful awful awful... So mad right now! And overpriced as hell. Which I wouldn't mind paying I the service was up to par.
I bought a house in 2008 as an investment property, even though I knew nothing about investing in real estate, of course then the market crashed. I couldn’t find anyone to buy it so I decided to flip the house. I hired a contractor who never did any work. I heard about Armando Montelongo from one of his TV shows and watched a lot of people flipping properties. I watched all of his episodes, took a bunch of notes, then realized I was ready to flip the house. I hired a new contractor and flipped the house and made $30,000.00. Fast forward to 2015 I heard about his real estate training program. It was going to be $1,500.00. No one believed that this was a good thing, everyone told me it was a waste of time, but I’d made $30,000.00 just from watching Armando’s TV show! So, I went and was totally blown away. What was undeniable was how much I learned in those first three days of the seminar that I decided to go to the bus tour. Everyone told me that was just their way of upselling me into spending more money, but I knew it was the only way I was going to get out of the rat race. The bus tour was everything and beyond. I ate up all the information, I took pages and pages of notes. It was an amazing experience. When I get back home I knew I had the education I needed to get going. I realized I needed to take the wholesaling class to be more prepared to get going. I spent all summer after that hustling. My first deal was $10,000.00, my next deal was $5,000.00. I realized that I needed a good realtor so I could see them without delay and get comps, etc., but after working with a few, I realized it would be best if I became a Realtor so I could acquire and sell the properties I flip myself.. so that's what I did. Armando Montelongo literally changed my life.
I went to the free seminar and signed up for the program, however, due to my work I was never able to get away to the next part. Wow, working so hard, with no days off... 2 years went by so fast! One day I was feeling pretty regretful about not being able to follow through and attend. So I was REALLY happy when they called me within weeks of that and offered me another opportunity to get involved! I jumped at the chance. I was going to get to that meeting in Sacramento no matter what and it was powerful. I couldn't imagine going back home to my same life and not being a part of the team and life changing opportunity. I went on the Bus Tour Training and other trainings and it's been an absolutely fantastic decision. There is a lot of information and Armando is well versed in a multitude of learning techniques, including keeping it fun, and therefore, easier for the information to become a part of you. He listens and values his students, putting a lot of effort into making sure we are successful by providing ongoing trainings, plus almost daily real time online trainings AND all the hands on help you could ask for by his superb team. Since the bus tour, I have taken other trainings, also. Armando has also provided crucial support in other related areas like Asset Protection. It is such a positive and caring organization. Friends and family know what I am doing and are excited and are involved and supportive in various ways, referring properties to me, as well as, people who need help. I know that with this program you can be guaranteed that the outcome is equal to the effort you put into it. I believe you cannot ask for more than that. I’m very satisfied with the training and I would highly recommend it as the best there is ever.
I had my first appointment with this salon. The staff is very friendly and the place was clean and stylish. I went in a couple of days in advance to ask questions and was quoted $60 for a conditioning treatment, which would drop to $35 if you included hair color. I made the mistake of not getting a firm answer of how much for a haircut. I have mixed textured curly hair that is slightly shorter than shoulder length. I was assured that they have experience with my hair type. The day of my appointment, I was seen promptly and offered a beverage and snack. My stylist gave me 100% of her attention and answered what questions I had. These are the sweetest ladies you'll meet. The conditioning treatment for my hair was beyond what I have expected. My stylist then spent time giving me a wet cut, straightening my hair, and a dry cut followed. She did a magnificent job at taking away the split ends and giving my hair a healthy look. At the end, my hair was only straightened and not styled as discussed prior to drying. I also asked for a product to help prevent frizz, to which one was applied. The cost of what I requested: shampoo, conditioning treatment, cut, and straightening with a flat iron was $130. I inquired about the breakdown of my cost and was informed the conditioning treatment was $65 and the haircut was $65. I left the salon to another indoor location and my hair was frizzy in 15 minutes. My experience was not horrible but I cannot say it was the best. This is the most I have ever paid for these specific services, ever. I enjoy the feel of my hair and it appears to be healthier but I left there without a style and frizz that followed shortly after.
I first heard about Armando Montelongo in January of 2016 through an internet ad. It caught my attention because I had just gotten my real estate license in New York. I had recently left 20 years of being a facility and construction manager in Manhattan. I went to the free event in my area and from there to the three-day seminar. This even was where I thought Armando's people help you decide if you are ready to commit to the next level of investment. The presentation was about changing your mindset. Clearly everyone there wanted to be successful, but they help you determine if you are ready to change your habits so that you can be successful. They helped us understand if you're sitting on the fence, whether you're ready to move on to the next level. Chris Sanders was probably the most dynamic speaker who had the ability to electrify the room. He taught us about the rule of 72 which opened my eyes to how long it would take for the money in my 401K to double. I realized that I needed to do something different. I did the bus tour that April in Dallas, and Master Mentor in May. The bus tour was kind of a party atmosphere which I think helps people learn how to break down barriers with strangers. In the end it was the bus tour which helped me really understand the flip process. Another valuable aspect of the Armando program is the Facebook group where we can connect and speak a common language about real estate. I went back to San Antonio for asset protection, and I think that is all the training I've done with them so far. I've put some bids out on foreclosures and online auctions.
I did my first flip a few years ago before I had any knowledge or experience in Real Estate, but we managed to make about $40,000 from it. So I was interested in learning more, thinking that if I can do that without knowing very much imagine what I could do with some real training. When I saw the infomercial for Armando Montelongo’s program on TV I decided this would be a good way to go. I went to the 1 day free event with my wife, I was ready to get into it and she was a little bit hesitant. It was very informative and it was something that I was very interested in. My wife started to become more and more interested at that point and we went to the bus tour together in Scottsdale, Arizona. The bus tour was very encouraging, I didn’t expect all the energy, but it made it very exciting to learn. It goes from morning until night, not just 8-5, non-stop energy. We made some great friends at the event who we stayed friends with to this day. We do a monthly meetup in Arizona that we oversee, we get anywhere from 20-30 people at those meetings. Now my wife is fully on board, in fact she’s the one who signed us up for the training on commercial deals. We’ve been working on a couple of deals and this weekend were finalizing our first wholesale deal. The support we received from the mentors has been top notch. You just have to reach out and they are there. There’s a ton of support, they don’t just give you the information and then it’s done. You can always call and get help which is huge for us. I’m now doing this full time, and in a few months my wife will be full time as well.
I heard about Armando Montelongo’s program on late-night television back in 2012. I have been interested in getting involved in real estate for over 30 years and thought it was time to get started in it. The three-day event was phenomenal, the speakers were clear and enthusiastic. The material was fairly new to me, although I do have a background in construction. I had always wanted to flip houses, but had never considered the possibility of passive income. The bus tour was next and again, great information and the ability to see it in person while walking through the houses. One of my main takeaways was the systematic approach that Armando takes. There really isn’t any guesswork involved. You keep in mainstream and simple, you leave your emotions out of it. I keep updated with Armando’s webinars and have kept in touch with some of the people I’ve met along the way. Since the bus tour one of my big push was finding an investor. I was able to see that the people I know who have of money understand that it takes money to invest and that they are likely to be interested in working together. I’ve worked with a lot of millionaires and I worked up the courage to ask them to invest with me. Now I’ve done 25 wholesale deals, 30-40 flips, and now I have 26 rentals. It kind of amazes me. I literally spent everything I had to go through this training because I knew it was exactly what I wanted to do. If you simply take action and follow the system you’ll be successful
I heard about Armando Montelongo's real estate program from an infomercial and was very interested in it. I have a background in real estate and wanted to learn more. I had just aquired my first rental property at the time and was interested in having more rentals for the income. The speakers at the three-day event were absolutely wonderful. They seemed to have done what they were teaching which made it feel more doable. The bus tour was great, I liked it a lot. I'm not very outgoing so the party, jump up and down atmosphere was different for me. I did ok with it though, although I enjoyed going through the houses more. Seeing the houses and applying the system to them was great education. They broke us up into teams and had some friendly competition. I guess they are trying to help people like me who are more introverted and to get comfortable with networking. The support that I've received from Armando's group has been incredible. I've been working with a mentor who is there to help in any way I need. I was working on a deal and my mentor was with me every step of the way. He spent so much time with me, he was able to work with me on my computer remotely and was out of this world in his help. I've also taken the Master Mentor three-day class. I think the Master Mentors class was the best investment out of all the Armando courses. I've been working on a couple of deals so far and feel that soon something will go through. I would recommend this program.
Heavy Metal Fitness is the best gym in San Antonio....and one of the best, if not the best, in Texas.
