Kristin has been great for shelac manicures and her pedicures last a solid 2 weeks! She's pleasant, attentative and does great work in a timely manner. Christina has also been great for waxing! The quality of the wax they use has been great and my skin had no reaction and ingrowns have been non existant. I also love that I can schedule all my appointments online so I can schedule when I think of it (say 7:00 AM on a Monday!). The atmosphere overall is fun...although check-in and check-out can be a little confusing sometimes.
Maureen is THE BEST! – Maureen has been my hair stylist for over a year, and consistently gives me great, natural-looking highlights as well as the best cut to compliment my hair. It was obvious to me, from my first visit, that Maureen REALLY knows her stuff. Not only does she give me the best color and cut I
WASTE OF MONEY – Headgames has been my salon of choice for a while. The last time I went (on my birthday) they said that I called and cancelled my appointment. This was obviously not true. They managed to reschedle my appointment for later that day. I showed up for the appointment and was advised they did not have enough time to do my hair. The owner tried to blame me by saying I wasn't specific enough about what I needed when I called. The truth is that they did my hair previously (the stylist should have my notes on file), I also explained when I called what I needed, and they used my hair for thier website. The owner was so rude and unapologetic that I actually cried in the salon. She also advised me that she would not provide any discounts if I rescheduled. HEADGAMES is a headgame. Stay away!!!
Our main objective is to give our guests the BEST possible result with every appointment. Nicole requested and booked a "root touch up". Upon arrival she requested the same 4 hour service that she received last time. This can be compared to booking an appt. for an eyebrow wax and upon arrival, demanding a full body massage and a facial. We did not have time to do the service properly & She did not want to reschedule. I hope she finds happiness at a new salon.
Liscio Thermal Hair Retexturizing – I got the Liscio Thermal Hair retexturizing treatment done about a month ago with Maureen and I am SO happy I finally decided to do it! This process really does work and makes your hair dry pin straight all the time. The process of actually getting it done took about 5-6 hours in the salon but it was well worth the time and money! If you spend a lot of time straightening your hair and want your hair to be pin straight 24/7 this is something you should absolutely consider! It has saved me so much time and it never comes unstraightened even in rain and humidity. My only regret is that I wish I had done it a long time ago! Maureen is fantastic and did an awesome job!
Maureen E. is Awesome! – I've been seeing Maureen E. at Head Games for several years - she is passionate about what she does and is contiually learning about the latest break-throughs in the hair care world! She's very skillful and listens to what you want and don't want. And VOILA - she responds with creative ideas to make you and your hair look great! Maureen offers great experise, TLC and then some.
Alanna is a genius – From the moment I stepped into Head Games to the moment I left, I was amazed. They have an unbelievably comfortable atmosphere that makes anyone immediately feel welcome. Everyone was extremely friendly and greeted me warmly as i walked in. From the beginning I loved the place! I have horribly thick, long,curly, frizzy, messy hair and finally decided to have the Lisco treatment done which entails 9 hours sitting in the salon. I was a bit nervous but everyone was so niceand hospitable i was immediately put at ease. Alanna helped me decide what was right for my hair and was extremely patient as I contemplated the different options. She spent 9 hours solely working on my hair. I had many questions and curiosities about the treatment and she was extremely knowledgeable and experienced about the entire thing. I was beyond impressed on the amount of knowledge she had about everything. After 9 hours of work, my hair has never looked and felt so good in my life. I was in pure disbelief, i did not think my hair was capable of looking that way at all. Alanna was absolutely incredible and made the entire experience fun even though I was sitting in the same chair for the majority of it. My hair is stick straight and smoother than I've ever felt it. I can't stop touching my hair! Head Games is truly unbelievable and I would undoubtedly recommend it to everyone wanting amazing hair. I really thought my hair was hopeless but they turned that around for me. I will never go anywhere other than Head Games from now on!
Pedicures for all! – As I was walking back to my car after a pedicure and microcurrent facial at Head Games, I was thinking that the world would be a much better place if everyone went in for a little more pampering. I had such a happy feeling after my time with Vanessa at Head Games. I tried the microcurrent facial for the first time and it is incredible!!! It was such a relaxing time. I highly recommend trying it! The next day, my co-workers mentioned how good my skin looked. It gave my skin a glow. After the facial, it was more warm towels and oils, but this time for my feet. I can't remember the last time my feet felt so soft and smooth. The staff was extremely nice. Vanessa is the best! Make an appointment at Head Games and the world will feel like a perfect place!
Maureen Rocks! – You really do get what you pay for at Head Games. I've been with Maureen for almost 5 years and if she ever leaves she'll be taking me with her!! Great styles always changing, color is perfect and Maureen gives the best scalp massages on the planet.
Looking forward to a face shave when it's on the full time menu!
HEAD & FACE SHAVE...AWESOME!!! – I had never had a professional shave my face or especially my head...until Maureen from Head Games came into my life! What a fantastic experience and Maureen was amazing! She was so pleasant to talk with and was so gentle with me on my first time! I would highly recommend this to any and every guy out there...if you are shaving your head now...go see Maureen...you'll love it!
Quite a SHAVE!!! – Wow, thanks to Mau, I just had the best straight razor shave ever!!! Every man should be so lucky, drop by and schedule a shave NOW, its soooooo worth it!!!!
Just remember not to move or laugh, it's hard but concentrate, close your eyes and enjoy the ride!!!!
Thankx HEEPS Sweetie!!!!!
