Great Nails, Terrible Waxing!! – I absolutley love Lauren's! I started going to Lauren's with my mother on our mother-daughter day outs because it is a little too expensive on my 18 year old wallet. But I've come to realize that you pay for quality, and that $5 more I'm spending is very worth it. The women are sooo friendly there and they treat their regulars really well. For example...They love me; I'm there often and I always tip so they take care of me, I can't remember the last time I paid full price.Their pedicures are very good too. If youre putting on shoes afterwards (as opposed to just slipping on flip flops or the like) they will place a plastic sheath over your toes as not to ruin your polish and put your shoes on for you. The only donside to Lauren's is their waxing. I figured because they were so good at nails they'd be as good at waxing. Unfortunaltey I was wrong. I chose to get my first brazilian wax there. She took me into a little room and asked me to take off my bottoms. In doing research on waxing at other places I thought I was going to bet a paper thong or at least a towel over me. But I was just spread eagle in front of this woman. And I dont think she did a thorough job b/c when i got home i realized there was a tiny bit of stubble in a small patch, and now less than a week later that patch is growing longer. So what was the point? But that doesnt change my idea about Lauren's. It will continue as my favorite salon, I just know that it;s not the place for a wax.
If you want quality service, gorgeous nails and to be treated lke a celeb Lauren's is the place.
What Happened to Lauren's – I used to love this place but over the last year I have been less and less impressed each time. They rush you in and out. To get them to scrub your feet (pedicure) is an effort. No one who works there seems happy and they don't have the best color selection. There are so many other places to go I wouldn't waste your time on this 'has been' nail salon.
