Where do I start.... – I went to La Belle Vie a few times. The first time was to buy some nail polish and I ended up with a manicure, I did not get acrilic nails just a nice rub down and some polish, they made me hurt and then put a soulustion on me that made it hurt worse and After about two days the nail polish was more than chipping, it was peeling really bad. I came back in and the man behind the counter told me that I cannot get my nails wet if I have nail polish on! I ended getting acrilic nails done and the guy that was doing it just akted like it was a job that he didnt want to do and just wanted to get it over with, they lasted me about 2-3 weeks but I sware the nail polish would not dry!! I wated for hours and if I touched my finger to it it would leave a finger print. I ended up taking them of myself. Then few years later I went in and decided to pierce my septum and it was horrable, I was not given a care sheet she did not ask me what kind of jewlry I wanted or what gage. She took a kit our of a droor that had everything in it, jewlry, clamps, needle. She took the needle out and to hold it she pushed it in bettween her glove. The pircing is crroked. I will never go there again for anything.
Maybe think twice... – I've had a brazilian wax done here 3 times and I have never been anywhere else but I think next time I'm going to find a different place. The last time I went was the worst, the room is tiny and the lady didn't even ask me if another woman could watch, I didn't mind I guess since she was learning but then they proceeded to talk in a different language the whole time and it seemed very rude. Afterward, I had horrible ingrown hairs and my skin was red and inflamed for a week. I don't know if they're supposed to or not but they didn't wear gloves either. They also completely missed areas of hair I didn't notice until afterward because I just wanted to get out of there so bad. It was an embarrassing experience me and the ladies were not very friendly. The other times I'd gone here weren't much better, I guess I'm a slow learner. I hope there are other places better than this one. Oh, and they charge like $10 extra to have your backside done, so it all comes to like $60 if I remember right.
Unprofessional, rude, worst experience I've had at a salon! – Yesterday a friend and I decided to get pedicures done at this salon and thought we were going to get decent service but we were greatly disappointed as soon as we sat in the chair. We are both Vietnamese and the two ladies who were helping us apparently didn't think so because they started talking about us in front of our face! I find this to be highly unprofessional and rude, you should never talk about your customers in front of them, even if you assume they won't understand you. The entire pedicure was sloppily done and inconsistant, I got a foot wrap and my friend didn't. Once she started, I almost wanted to tell her to stop because I wasn't satisfied at all at her poor attempt of a pedicure but felt obligated to just sit and accept the poor service I was getting. The massage portion was more of just a slopping on of lotion, when she applied cuticle oil she didn't pay attention and didn't even get it on the nail bed, just the skin portion! By this point, I just wanted the whole experience to end so I could leave this place. The customer next to me had to ask 3 times for her nail technian to trim her nails shorter before she would listen and do it. I beleive a large part of this job is to pay attention to your customers needs, instead of having side conversations and doing a sloppy job.
For 28 dollars, I could-and should have-just repainted my own toes with a different polish at home, because that is basically what I got. Please, if you are considering getting any nail services done at this salon...think twice. Save your hard earned money and go somewhere else where they will give you the attention and service you deserve!!
Convenient Location and Great Customer Service – I went to La Belle Vie in Lloyd Center rather reluctantly because I wasn't sure of the service I would recieve. However, once I arrived and got a mani, pedi and my eyebrows waxed I knew I wouldn't go anywhere else. Their prices are very fair, and the staff is very nice and accomodating. They are known for doing an excellent job waxing eyebrows and refer all of my friends there to get theirs done. The Salon seems clean and well kept.
Hrm, waxing? No Thanks. Never again. – Okay, so I had a brazilian wax done here and my experience was terrible. An understatement I would have to say. First of all, with my experiences with other salons with this type of service my understanding for a brazilian wax entitles everything off the "front" and the "back". Well, this salons understanding is just the front, which I would consider to be just a bikini wax. Not to mention they did not get all the hair and had told me to tweeze the rest myself, also answered the phone during the waxing and even left for a few minutes during the service to talk to an employee that had interupted and knocked on the door! Then the waxer comes back and complains about customers being late for their appointments! Well I was 10 minutes early for my appointment and then waited for an additional 30 minutes! And lets just say my experience afterwards was even worse! I had ingrown hairs like never before and the surface feel was as if I had shaved it myself and it was already ready to be waxed again after about a week if that! Not too mention the room is terribly small, barely enough room to undress let alone have the waxer and the customer in there at the same time. I do not recommend this salon for any type of waxing never the less any type of service.
worst expierance of my life! – I recently decided to get my tongue pierced. I was told about La Bella Vie by a friend, the price was affordable.... or so I thought. the piercing and jewlery initaly didn't cost much and the piercer was nice. but the day after reciving the piercing I woke up with an intence pain in my tounge and it continued down my throat. I decided to go get it checkd out when I opened my moulth and saw my tongue was black. as it turns out the hospital tells me I have a staff infection. I'm slowly getting better with my anti-biotics. all together with the hospital visit and medication... it cost me almost $400.00 in the end. the good news is there is hope I talked to a few more shops since then and I can get it re-pierced. the next time however I'm going to ask a few more questions and make shure its a good shop. my doctor told me the infection was caused by a combination of dirty materials and unsanitary conditions.
