Average Price: $25
Disquisting place, crowded, dirty, terrible customer service, left in tears
I did not enjoy the manicure/pedicure treatment I recieved for several reasons. First I came in at 5:50PM for both mani shellac and pedi and had multiple comments from the staff that I was arriving too late as they closed at 7PM. There was at least 8 employees chatting in the back and having a great time laughing and conversing with each other. I am 7.5 months pregnant and had to lit my leg up to accomidate the treatment and cross my arms over my belly so that they could work on my fingers at the same time. It was very uncomfortable and when I told them they said "almost done". Once I was ready to go to get the Shellac nail polish put on they had me at the front door where it was very drafty and -30 outside. I ended up with the worst head cold I have ever had and being pregnant could not treat it what so ever. My nails looked nice from the treatments but I was so annoyed by everything going on. By 6:45 there was about 10 different staff members continuing to talk and joke around. It was very unprofessional and I would not recommend this location.
I came here as a walk-in for a last minute bikini wax. When I came in, a woman asked me from across the room what kind of service I wanted. I didn't want to announce to everyone getting manicures and pedicures that I wanted a bikini wax so I walked a bit closer to her (there was a manicure table blocking me from going closer) and motioned for her to do the same. She did not. She just looked irritated with me and asked again, "What you want?" So I had to loudly announce my intentions to the room. She motioned for me to come to the back. I told her I wanted to confirm the price first. She told me it was starting at $15. Without getting into too much information, I go for waxing every month so it's a pretty easy job. I figured that meant mine would be around the $15 mark.
A woman brought me to the back for my wax and when we got into the room, she asked me to strip and lie on the dirty towel that was there from the last waxing. It had obviously had another bum on it since it was all rumpled and had some wax on it, so I asked her to replace the towel for me. She told me she didn't need to since that one was perfectly clean. I told her I'd feel more comfortable with a new towel. Who wants to put their bare bum where someone else's has been??
She replaced the towel and carried on with the wax. She was a nice woman once we got to talking and she was gentle with the removal. It was kind of lopsided but it was enough I didn't need to be embarrassed at the lake that day.
When I went to pay they told me it was $21. I asked why it was 50% more than the posted price. They said it's because of the amount of hair. As I mentioned, there wasn't a lot given I go so frequently. I didn't argue about it because it would have been really embarrassing to argue in front of those getting their nails done about the amount of hair down there I have. With tip it was $25. You get what you pay for!
I can't comment on the nails as I didn't try that service. If the staff had been friendly, and I didn't have to ask them to be sanitary, I would have had better things to say. My expectations of a cheapie place are pretty low and I think I'm reasonably tolerant about that, but they could have done much better.
