greenwood academy – i got my hair colored it was right looked good,
my hair cut,uneven,i look worse then when i went in
i have to find someone to fix it by Saturday night i'm in a wedding, i have no style, i complied at the time this guy that was a supervisor came over cut a hunk of hair off
said just use product, i said i hate it a blind person could cut my hair better, so they sent over another lady in charge
she tried to fix it then gave up so i am sitting there
for about 10 to 15 minutes then moved me to brow waxing less then two minutes she said i was done
i said what about the dark hairs that are left so she plucked them i did not want a plucking i could do that my self and hurt less and not bleed. then made me sit of almost a hour for a manicure , they had no colors
i asked not to clip just file my nails again clipped
they are so short you can see a red line above 3 nails
do to cut way to short, so now i have to get fake nails
pedicure , the guy was so nice he really tried to give me a good pedicure i have nothing but good things to say about him Mario,they are really smooth and the nail
color had to be looped around the bottle it came out stringy, so it did not come out that great , but if he had a fresh nail color to work with i believe it would have been great , this was a day of beauty. i have to pay more to get this fixed, i got home i was asked what happened to your hair , my husband said i do not care what it cost get it fixed, he said your so uneven right side is longer then left side, you have a hunk of hair right in the middle of your forehead your bangs are so
uneven he told me just take off tomorrow and get it fixed if you can, my daughter just said oh my God mom
she came over to see my hair cut, she is calling around to help me out here, all this took 7 and 3/4 hours. beware please then they made me pay for it and they all dismissed me once i said i did not like it
the supervisor asked if i wanted to be bold
then i just said are you kidding me i was not in a joking mood and did not know if he was joking or not
he told the girl just to put product in the hair and move on , if you have a right hair cut you do not need product,
Editorial Review – Full-service training salon and spa in Greenwood offers a wide variety of hair and body treatments for amazingly cheap prices.
new ownership is top notch – greenwood academy is under new ownership and it really shows .the new decor is really wonderful.i have been a client for years and thestaff and the students are really excited about the change they have five new haircare products .the facials are the best deal in town.the new owners are bringing in new curriculam in 2008 !!!
Great service at a great price – I understand from the student that cut my hair that someone just bought Greenwood Academy. It already looks a lot better than the last time I was in there. The new paint was bright and fun, the lobby looked more inviting and it was really clean. The person that cut my hair did a great job. There was always an instructor around to supervise if needed. The prices can't be beat. They do everything from cuts, coloring, waxing, facials, manicures and pedicures. They offer all the services a salon does at a price everyone can afford.
Good prices, kind and friendly service – You can get basically all your salon services here from facials to perms to waxing. The prices are very good and they use top quality products. You will be serviced by students but they are skilled and supervised so it is easy to foget they are students. The facial part of the building is quite and peaceful.
Horrible experience from when i first walked in the door – The first time I went to the academy I had an awful experience, the woman who cut my hair was graduating that day and was telling me all the horror stories of how horrible the environment was there. Not only that but you could see how all the woman were talking about eachother. The price was good, but not relaxing at all! Oh and not to mention my the color i wanted in my hair did not come out the way i wanted it. So when i needed my hair done again, i didnt feel like spending lots of money so i decided (stupidly) to give this place a second chance...bad idea! I was there for a appt. that lasted till closing. The two male owners or managers were so passive aggressive and irritated that i hadnt left yet, even my hair stylist said they need to chill out. My hair color was messed up that i ended up going back somewhere else. I highly recommend that you do not come here if you're getting color done on your hair! Youll end up having to go somewhere else to get it fixed.
Great Facials Galore!!!!! – Wow! that is what comes to mind when I think about the facials at greenwood academy. most people don't even know that there is a spa in this north seattle beauty school. I my self am a licsened esthetican for 8 years and i my self enjoy having a facial. after years of bouncing around various high end spa's in the seattle area i have found a place that gives better facials and service than most of the high end diggs.
first my therapist never left the room. when i was masking she asked me would i like a hand or scalp massage i chose scalp can you say aahhh.... everthing was personalized for my skin at the time of the appointment, something you rarely get in spa services. the instructors were hands on and very current. the students seemed to light up when conversing with their educators about the service and appropiate products. This bring up another great reason to go here for facials you leave not only feeling refreshed and looking good, but you also leave being more educated about your skin and your concerns, before you start your service you are checked in by the instrucors and students this process involes them sitting down with you and really talking to you about what they see and feel and what they reasonable do!! with 4 amazing product lines to choose from :aveda-dermalogica-eminence-murad- as well as glycoic peels and tons of anti aging therapy were else can you and a friend have an aveda facial in the same room for $40.00 plan to be there for an hour and a half of good times
I almost hate to share my pedicure secret! – This is one of the best places in Seattle to get a pedicure. Yes, the atmoshere does not scream "spa". True, the people working on you are students. And yes, there is only street parking.
So...what makes this place so great? The price is unbeatable, the work are great, and best of all: the students really care about their craft. They are meticulous and friendly. Street parking is fairly reasonable early in the day and on weekdays. Enjoy the spa pedicure. It's a few bucks more than the regular pedicur, but they really give you the royal treatment.
Cramped space and lopsided results – After years of going to only the high priced salons, I thought I'd give the neighborhood academy a try on a lazy Saturday afternoon. The chairs are so tight that only one can be rotated at a time otherwise, knees and footrests would collide. The stylists are typically young and trendy and all seemingly with boyfreind problems that they must tell everyone within earshot about. The haircut took over an hour and the results are somewhat lopsided. Good thing the price was so cheap.
Rockin new hair for cheap!! – I know that it sounds a bit scary, and I wouldn't usually go to a 'training school' for a haircut, but step inside the place, and you're surrounded by these fab, hip students. . .(ignore the scary trapped in the 90's instructors - they'll only 'ok' the students fab haircut) who'll totally give you what you're looking for. It takes sometimes twice as long as you'd typically spend in a hair salon, but you'll leave with a fat wallet, and a luscious haircut, color and style for like $35 bucks. Go see Sara Chest, she's the best one I've gone to so far. Very low key escape from the snooty-salons!
