HORRIBLE! Would NOT recommend. Shamim is very unprofessional and cannot respect other people's time. She has one set of rules for her own, but does not care to do same for customer. Poor service.
Worst Ever! They CHEAT you out of your money!! – So, I went for my permanent hair straightening today with a friend of mine. She took me to this parlor and i haven't been back in several years because of her cheating me out before. You would think that a normal store would give a discount or at least keep the price they told you especially when you bring in more customers for them. WRONG. My friend was given a quote in the beginning of $60 then she went back another day to ask her if she could get her hair done and Shamim said no, but said it would be $80 (this was two weeks ago). Today we went to get our hair done, she wanted to charge us $100 per person!!! Her reason for increasing the price - my friend's hair grew ALOT. how much can hair grow in 2 weeks?! i was upset about paying i was upset about her unprofessionalism and her staff is under qualified. They can't even wash someone's hair correctly without being told 3 times what to do. All they do is stand around, gossip, and watch TV.
TERRIBLE PLACE TO GO!
They truly suck! – I would give them a zero rating if that were an option. They do not welcome you when you enter the door, they make you wait while they gossip instead of seating you and performing you service - even when there is no one else in the shop!
Some of the techs seem to feel like they are too good to perform work on certain customers. They will pass you along to the newbies and wait for the fellow Indians to come in. They are rude, obnoxious and unprofessional. They also do not do as good of a job as others I have tried - yes, there are others - in the area.
The manager takes the tips. Please complain to change this. – This place is great. They do a wonderful job with brows and the folks who work there work very hard, but you need to know that the manager is very selfish and keeps all of the tips. It's worth going there because of the value and quality of the work performed, but please voice your disapproval of the tip policy to the manager when you get there. Better yet, ask to speak to the manager, then hand her a few pennies so she can feel like she has successfully milked her employees for the day, and ensure that the tip that you hand to the staff, in front of the manager, is pocketed by the person who performed your cosmetic services, not by the selfish manager. The cosmeticians need to be rewarded for the work they perform. And the public needs to know how the manager treats her employees at this establishment.
Aisha is great – Yes, i am AIsha's client, NO doubt she is a very hard working person, i would say a great eyebrow expert i wish she worked there more days.... she always squeezes you in unless if its super buzy.... i have been going there for past 4 yrs. i love it..! i would say go to her..!!
best threading anywhere – ive been at many diff. cities for these services & this by far is the best. they remember who you are. im assuming that its under new management as the entire place looks different. it seems as if the owners not around & her daughters taken over. place looks good. service has improved greatly. give them a chance once again. been going there for years.
very unprofessional attitude – very unprofessional, girls like to gossip with each other while they work. Infact, they give first priority to their gossip, roaming around while you are eagerly waiting on the chair to get ur stuff done. I hope the owner of the parlor notices and set things right so that girls are more discplined and give first priority to the client. We are spending $$$ after all.
Bad Customer Service – I took an appointment for eyebrows at 2 and I had to wait till 3:30. I take appointment so that I dont have to wait and I feel there is no point now. Moreover they talk on phone when working on the eyebrows which makes me scary as I don't want to spoil my eyebrows.
A Hidden Gem! – I have been going here for threading services for 3 years now. My college roomate told me about this salon and I have been getting my eyebrows threaded ever since! They have great service, and their hours are accomodating too. The girls there are friendly and have always been nothing but nice to me. I have a hectic schedule so it's great that I can just walk in most of the time. I have had my eyebrows waxed for years and it is painful and they never looked right. Shamim makes everyone's eyebrows look great. The whole staff is talented at threading and I would never go anywhere else!
Aisha is great – I have been getting my eyebrows and facial threading done at Shamim's for almost 3 years. Before Aisha started working there I was a faithful customer to Kamal (she was great). When Kamal moved away, I decided to get on Aisha's clientele. Aisha is very friendly and great with eyebrow threading and facial hair removal. Shamim's is the best i've seen in the triangle.
