Awesome Pedicure!! – My sister and I visited Barragan's (east side location) for the first time today, and will definitely be going back. We went in for pedicures, and were set up with Veronica and Kathryn. These two girls are awesome! My sister and I are very pleased with our pedicures and the service we recieved from them. Aside from giving a great pedi, they are very friendly, which is equally as important. I am so pleased with my pedicure that I can't wait for the next one; I'm definitely going to be a regular at Barragan's.
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because the receptionist/cashier was not competent; I hope she was just having an "off" day.
Poor service – I made an appointment for a special occassion for a pedicure. I arranged my whole day for the appointment. They had called me 3 days before to confirm and then the day I walked in they said, "Our boiler broke and we don't have any hot water, you should reschedule"
You couldn't have called me? Given me notice?
REALLY poor service.
I rescheduled...and then didn't show up! turn about is fair play!
Handled my hair emergency expertly! – I went to the eastside location on Pellicano and had a fantastic experience!
I called on Monday morning and was slipped into an appointment with Crystal within 45 minutes. I made a horrible mistake by attempting to lighten my hair at home, which resulted in an awful orange headfull of hair. Crystal fixed it expertly and made it look better than I thought possible without being rude or rubbing in what an awful mistake I'd made! She was really friendly, capable and did an awesome job. I'd definitely recommend that anyone go to Crystal!
The place is also extremely spacious and offers lots of room without feeling cramped.
Great place for massage! – I always ask my husband for gift certificates for massages at barragans, i absolutely love it here
Though the front desk could be a little more friendly. I’ve tried out all the therapists though I am more of a regular with Lilly, they are all great at what they do.
Mary is good, Turry the guy though is a bit creepy and smells funky, Krista is sweet and really gives a relaxing massage, while Lilly is just awesome, she’s very relaxing while still being very firm getting my knots out and I just feel great aftwards!
I will follow those two girls were ever they go.
Horrible haircut. – I was shocked after hearing how great this place was to receive both the worst and the most expensive haircut of my life here. I am going to have to get it fixed. I have long hair, one length, and the stylist left me with uneven, ragged edges all the way around. No one should be working at such a "high end" salon who doesn't have basic haircutting skills. In all honestly, I could have done better myself if I had a hand mirror and a pair of scissors.
I did also receive a massage from Krista on the same day and it was heavenly. I recommend her, but I will never return for another haircut again.
Do not get a microdermabrasion...... – Oh my gosh...where do I begin.....I made a appointment for a microdermabrasion facial. I arrived half hour early...after waiting for the 30 min. this woman shows up, gets special treatment and taken care of and I don't even get a we will be right with you. 15 minutes later some woman comes out, looks at me talks to the girls up front and leaves for another 15min. When she comes back out front, she calls my name. That is when I got upset. She had purposely left me waiting. At that point I did not say anything but you could tell I was mad. There was tention. I should have listened to my gutt feeling, but I was going out of town and still wanted permanent make-up done. So I went throught with it. It was so painful! I was very un confortable and she was harsh and she kept carving around the sensitive area of the eye. I was holding on to the bed and making loud noises from pain. She also did not do the whole face. When I went home, I had this uneasy feeling that my face was incomplete...and it really hurt! 2 hours later...I was in so much pain I had to take half a pill of vicodine and slept over night. a couple of days went by and I could tell something was not right. My facial skin was peeling and it looked like a map. You could see the old skin she did not do. I had lines around my eyes also. I did the derm. just because, I did not need it. And I wish I had not. As two weeks went by,....I decided to call the office to complaint and also asked for someone ELSE to fix it. T he manager said yes. When I went in the cashier said they could not do it unless I paid again, per the owner and they were getting Araceli the same girl to do it! I was angry. The cashier gave me the owners number and I called her. She played it off,refused to accomodate me. After I told her what happen, she agreed to have some girl fix it and said she would call me when re scheduled. I never got the call. These people lack customer service and the place is not very clean.
I got on line to google a spa place to try the services for my b-day. I never thought I would find this site and be able to share my horrific experience. Thank you God!
Couples Massage waste of $ – My husband and I went for a couples massage. Turns out a couples massage is when two massage therapists do the exact same massage on two different people in the same room. The two therapists did not speak to us and did not ask us about any concerns or requests or special needs we might have or want. We were asked to fill out forms stating what we wanted, but the therapists never even looked at them. I asked my therapist to concentrate on my neck and shoulders but she acted like she didn't hear me. They had a routine they followed and were not interested in personalizing the massage for the client. My husband and I got the exact same, lackluster massage despite having two completely different body types and needs. It was a complete waste of time and money. We didn't find it enjoyable at all, and we were not at all relaxed or refreshed afterward.
What a beauty!!! – Thank you Barragans for making my day your staff was great and I had a wonderful experience ill be coming back soon. PS. I highly recommend this place
I Have Great Experiences With Barragan's – I move allot and found Barragan's on my own. I have learned over the years to ask allot of questions and for the type of stylist that I want and not just who is available. I interview with the stylist prior to my cut, color etc. I have one who styles my hair and another who colors it. I have two different people I use for my eye brows. I know what a bad cut and color is and I can understand why people who do not get what they asked for can be upset. But what homework did you do on the stylist? Did you ask how many years of experience did she have? Did you explain the condition of your hair and if this person was best suited to deal with the situation? I have not been to any salon that refunds your money the best they can offer is to fix it! As for their receptionist, yes I can agree they are not personable and it is why I rated this a four instead of a five but I have to be real, I am in El Paso Texas not New York, California or Hawaii were the demand for service is greater. The Salon itself is beautiful and my stylists are the best!!
Terrible color, terrible service – Awul customer service. I had some grown out blonde highlights. I asked the girl to put in some blonde highlights. She said with my grown out highlights, it might look nice to put back in some of my natural color, which is an ashy color. I agreed. When she was drying it, I remarked that it looked VERY red/orange. She said, "Yes, I couldn't put the ashy color on over your previous color, so I went with the red." This was NOT okay with me, and she did NOT discuss this with me before hand. I called to schedule a fix, told her to get the red out, she put a few foils in, and said she "toned it down". It is still red. I placed a call to the manager, but have not heard back. I will never ever be returning.
