Hammond Nail

Had to redo my own nails at home

This is the 2nd time I've had a terrible experience here. 1st time I had at least one nail tech who was good (Apple) when got a gel mani/pedi That time other nail tech, Cindy was just awful. A friend goes here (though she always makes an appt w Chi) and is happy with her nails. This time the color they chose in gel to match the off-white polish I brought in with m to use on my toes (OPI funny bunny) did NOT MATCH. Susie roughly filed my nails shorter and square after I asked to leave them alone. Didn't polish whole nail! Lazy! I'm hairstylist therefore know how to give manicure. When they file back/forth and not side to middle it is damaging your nails. They also use acrylic nail files on natural nails which is again damaging. Beyond everything they were both rude! Whenever I would make a request they would begin talking to one another in Vietnamese. I can't imagine treating a client this way. I asked the manicurist, Susie how long she had been in the US she said 5 years. It was like that viral YouTube video called nail salon by comedianne Angela Johnston. If you have ever experienced this less than gracious behavior in a nail salon watch this for a laugh. I'm not sure why the owner doesn't expect more etiquette from her employees. Pedicure by Lisa had uneven nails, some pointed, some square, uneven polish w some very sheer some opaque, lots of polish all over cuticle, a chip since didn't boher to put cotton between toes, lots of cuticle not removed, no cuticle oil. Avoid

Pura Vida Massage Studio

Well beyond a common massage! Magical Place!

Pura Vida is an intimate massage studio in Sandy Springs. I found Kristina lie al good things, by lucky chance! We met through business. I Have gotten massages semi-regularly for many years and have gone through spurts where I was consistent w them but then always felt like while they relaxed me they were not really changing my "back situation." Many times I felt like the pressure was too light, too deep, always I was wishing they would change something a bit. I would try to ask them to do whatever it was I felt I needed but it seemed that there was a bit of a communication breakdown so not fulfilled. When I first met Kristina at Pura Vida I was essentially giving massage another chance because I liked her as a person & thought, "why not?" I began chattering to her during my first massage & she politely informed me that she would need to "check out" meaning she needed to concentrate on what she was doing. She then began the best massage experience of my life! I take immense pride in what I do and it was SUCH an incredible feeling to be in the hands of someone who gave it her all. One minute there was kneading, then she was walking on my back w the help of bars above the table, then hot stones. All at the right pressure, in the right places as if she intuitively knows what your body needs to heal and de-stress. It is incredible! My boyfriend got me a massage at a well-known spa/winery and I was like, "why??" "I told you only Kristina ever again!" PuraVida=Magical place!

Fixed my problem FREE over the phone! AWESOME

My disposal was again clogged. Allen led me over the phone to fix it myself. Most other people would have come out and charged $50 at least for this. I own my own business and will also help people over the phone w small things. This is the sign of 2 things: A fair and helpful person, AND a successful business w better things to do! I see why he is successful. I will now use them to do some plumbing in a loft I am building out. A+ Service!! Thank you so much!

Sauls Reweavers & Alterations

Posted on: 7/15/2009

Overpriced and RUINED 8 dresses!

I had gone here before and had a decent if pricey job done. I sent them many clients. I went to get several (8) dresses hemmed and when I got them back hems were puckered, short, uneven etc etc. Hems that started out as a wide hem now has a small turned over hem, not matching the sleeves. Just pure lazy and shoddy work. I am beyond disappointed. I'm hoping that when I go back the fabric from these dresses is there so I can take them somewhere else to maybe be fixed.

Awful Fat transfer procedure for lips

I wanted to make my lips larger and fuller. The "harvesting" from my leg to get the fat was EXTREMELY painful. It seemed like I never got numb. When my lips were done I drove home and they swelled so large that I couldn't leave the house for a week at least. Then after a month or so they looked good, and then in a few months they were mostly or all gone. Worse yet I had a dent on my leg where the fat was removed. I also thought the Doctor wasn't very warm. Maybe it was just me but he didn't make me feel comfortable or able to trust him to do his best. I've seen breast lifts he has done and they look ok.

Overpriced but good

I went to get a cleaning and an estimate for my veneers here. I was quoted $25,000 for all of the work I needed including veneers. Just the cleaning was close to $200 with the oral rinse (overpriced mouthwash) they sold me. A woman I work with got her veneers here and they look really good. I believe they do great work. I also think they really overcharge. If money is not an option, go here. If you want great teeth and great value as well, keep looking, as i am.

Atlanta Hairdreams Extensions

Posted on: 10/23/2007

Best Extensions I have ever had!

I found Atlanta Hairdreams on the Internet. I had just moved here from Jacksonville and was looking for someone to take out my old extensions and replace them with new ones.My old stylist lives in New Jersey half of the time so I was way past due. I called the number and got Renee, the owner on the phone. She sounded as worried as I was about my hair and fit me in within 2 days. She removed my extensions and ordered more hair which she had overnighted so I wouldn't have to walk around town without my hair! A day later she put in my new ones starting at 8 pm at night. I was there until 11 pm and she was cheerful and professional the whole time. Her salon which is called Gloss is really comfortable and cool. She is an artist so she has really good style and this seemed to translate to my hair. When she was finished the blending cut and I looked in the mirror my hair looked better than it ever has! It moves naturally and the way she blended the colors really flatters my skin tone and makes it look as she called it "brighter". I wish I had found her 2 years ago! She is absolutely the best and I see why she has so many discerning clients. If you know the difference between good and great extensions go here.
