I was in need of a new hair dresser and once again, due to my busy schedule, was WAY over due for a hair cut & deep conditioning. I had walked by Aveda Vicara Salon multiple times while at the Del Amo Mall, and a promotion (50% off for first time customers) caught my attention. I decided to make an appointment for June 1st (I had a party that day) although they also take walk ins. The receptionist asked me if I wanted to make an appointment with either:
- New Talent - (HELL NO), $35
- Studio - 2-5 years experience, $45
- Senior - 5 years + experience, $55
- Master level - 10 years + experience, $65
My hair is EVERYTHING to me, therefore I can't just let anyone do my hair, so I booked an appointment with a Senior stylist, Valerie.
My appointment was on a Saturday morning at 8:30 am. I showed up at 8:15 and was offered a peppermint tea (which was pretty savory) although it was served in miniature sized cup which allowed for 3 only sips. (Ultra Lux Salon offers Mimosas so they won me over a little more). At 8:40 my stylist arrived and after a short consultation, my hair was deep conditioned (accompanied with a head massage) and cut into layers. I then sat under the dryer and my hair was later styled. I must admit, I am a very tough critic but my hair turned out FABULOUS!! Usually, after a hair appointment I have to touch up and fix the styling of my hair at home but not this time! Valerie did an exemplary job with my tresses.
With the 50% off of the cut, plus deep conditioning and style I paid $70 and tipped her $10 for a total of $80. I will most definitely be back because my hair feels much healthier and shinier. Thank you Valerie!
I hadn't gotten my hair cut in about 9 months, so I was way overdue. I am very particular about who cuts my hair. My hair is my prized possession, if it doesn't look perfect, I die. Ultra Lux Salon & Lounge had amazing reviews on yelp so I figured I would make an appointment.
This was my first visit to this salon and the receptionist was extremely nice! I immediately fell in love with the retro, 1950's ambiance of the place. The salon was super cute! I was offered a mimosa while I waited for the stylist, which was an added plus (I had one more while she styled my hair) I saw Sara, and she was AMAZING. Definitely going back to her, I already made my next appointment. Very reasonable price for the service ($75 plus tip for a shampoo, cut and style)
Thank you Yelp for finding me a new salon!!
This European Wax Center is located in the Rolling Hills Plaza next to Bed Bath and Beyond. It has been open for about 4 months now, so it is fairly new. They offer a Free Wax for first time customers so I figured I would give them a try since they had good yelp reviews.
I called to make an appointment for my friend and I. I was told that a bikini wax was free, and the Brazilian wax would be half off, at only $21. I scheduled a Brazilian and was told I would receive an additional $5 off for referring my friend. We arrived the next day for our appointment, and the center was very nice. There were two very friendly ladies at the reception desk who took our information. After a few minutes, we were taken into our rooms. The beds you lay on are heated which is really nice, and they do not double-dip which is a necessity at any reputable wax salon. My waxer was Michelle, and she was very nice, and made me feel very comfortable. She explained the type of wax the salon uses, and finished my Brazilian within 15 minutes! She was very thorough and tweezes any stragglers. This Brazilian was less painful than my previous one at another salon, but was still painful nonetheless.
My total was only $16 plus the tip. I am extremely pleased with the service and will return again. The only reason I am giving them 4 stars instead of 5 is because my friend felt as though they were a little pushy trying to sell her the after care lotions.
BB's is in a very small shopping plaza on the major intersection of Crenshaw Blvd and Sepulveda Blvd. Lan is amazing! She did my nails on a friday afternoon and it was not crowded at all. The prices are great, and the cleanliness of the place is everything! I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at BB's Nail Salon, and it is my new go to place for my nails!
This review is based off my experience with the awesome sales associate M. CAROL. SHE IS BEYOND AWESOME!!! I had gone to the CL store in South Coast Plaza (Orange County, CA) and they did not have my size in Lady Peeps. The SA at South Coast stated that the CL at the Forum Shop in Las Vegas had my size. I filed out the paperwork with my billing and card information and it was faxed to the LV store. There was an issue with the paperwork and I kept in contact with SA Carol from the Vegas store via email. Carol was so patient and set aside my shoes until she received the correct paperwork a few days later. She was always very courteous and friendly on the phone, and responded to emails quickly. I received my Lady Peeps 2 days later. Carol you are the best!!!
Unfortunately, the sizing here is limited. ATTENTION ALL LADIES WHO WEAR A SIZE 36: go somewhere else to buy your louboutins so there are some left for me!!! I swear they hardly ever have size 36 in any of the shoes I want! Luckily the sales lady called other stores and for an additional $20, The Las Vegas store had my available size and shipped them to me. This store is small, but the selection is decent and the employees are helpful.
Great location at Santa Monica Place, at the end of third street promenade, conveniently near the valet parking. They definitely needed to open a LV store at this locale.
I do not understand why people say they received disparate treatment from employees due to what they were wearing because I did not have the same experience. I went in with my bf (we were both wearing workout clothes since we were going to the gym afterwards on a Friday afternoon). We were immediately greeted and asked if we needed assistance which means the employees are NOT that pretentious! Although my version of workout attire is rather cute and I did have a $1,200 handbag around my shoulder so that was probably a clue as to me being a REAL customer, not a window shopper.
Marcelo, the employee who was assisting us, was very friendly and my bf ended up purchasing the Evidence shades. He was a very good sales associate, so maybe I just got lucky that day. I will most likely return to this location for any future LV purchases, although I am a Gucci girl at heart :-)
