I had planned on going to this spa as my husband gave me two gift certificates for our anniversary to treat myself--one directly from their salon and the second from iCityCert. I was going to go in, but their online shop seemed to have cute stuff and as it was a bit of a drive I decided to buy from their online store. We called to redeem and first, they gave me problems because they insisted the certificate was expired. After I pointed out that yes, the promo value was expired on one card (iCityCert) the paid value was still valid (says it right on the card) they told me I could use it. Then they backpedaled and left a voicemail saying "our lawyer said we don't have to take the gift certificate." When I called back they said I could use the cards to purchase items off their website. After placing the order we got yet another phone call saying nope, we couldn't use the cards, they don't allow use of gift cards for items on their site. Major hassle, conflicting stories, and an absolutely horrible experience altogether. Any business that refuses to allow customers to use gift cards (even those bought from them) is a rip off.
Worst Eyebrow Wax - Beware – Do not have your eyebrows waxed by Lisa. Not only did she take off the majority of my eyebrows, they are not even!! It will take over a year for my brows to grow in.
Makes me feel great all over – I came across juju by chance but it was my lucky day. After years of thinking I had to wear my wavy hair short , have it chemically straightened, and wash and blow it dry every day to control it, I learned that I can wear it long, wash it once or twice a week with beautiful-smelling organic products and have the silky, shiny hair I always wanted. And my color looks natural and smells great from day one.
I wasnt sure at first if I was too old for juju but I was warmly welcomed and left feeling like family.
Speaking of family, now my three adult children are juju customers, too!
Afternoon of beauty at Juju – wanted to recommend Juju for Skin, hair and color! This was my first time at this salon, having been just about everywhere in Philly over the last 20 years. It hits that perfect balance of really chic yet really comfortable. No pretentious attitude to be found) I left there feeling like I had been on a vacation. Dont miss Renee's facial ( I will never go anywhere else) and Erin for hair was great!!
I still get compliments on my haircut after 3 months :) – Christie at Juju gave me a pixie crop haircut 3 months ago and it still gets compliments from random strangers. :) It's growing out so gracefully without any shape issues - which I think is the mark of a really good haircut - I love it! She must have used a very sharp razor too because I don't have any splits yet. Hannah is amazing too ... she gave me several really beautiful haircuts and she has a knack for picking colors that worked well with my skin color.
I love this salon in general ... the atmosphere is so clean and relaxed and comfortable and the products are safe for my super-sensitive skin. It's one of the few salons where I really feel comfortable. They were also so nice about doing a free color correction one time when I thought the highlights were too light for me. And there's that awesome tea shop right across the street. :)
Would not go back again for pedicure and mani – I had a spa pedicure and manicure. The retro chair was darling and blended in just swell with the decor. But it was uncomfortable as all hell. I felt like I had to hang on to the end edge of the chair in order not to fall off. It is not a regular pedicure chair but an old upholstered chair with no arms and leans to one side because it's old.
The pedicure was nothing special and I didn't feel like i was getting any special pampering for the price. Water is poured into a basin from another room and was lukewarm at best and barely covered my ankles. The products are good but the application left much to be desired. There is no privacy and it is not a tranquil environment, so I didn't feel relaxed when it was over, just happy to be out of the chair I was trying not to fall out of.
The manicure was just more of the same. I have not been to the spa, but perhaps that may be a better place to move the manicure and pedicure facilities to, if it can accommodate it. I'm assuming it's a more tranquil environment.
color washes right out – Went to ju ju once and will not be returning. Had a great cut and awful color. It was over 200.00 ( which was never discussed until I reached the counter) and washed out in ONE DAY. They take advantage of you and try to sell you tons of products to "keep the color". You should not need to spend an extra 50.00 on special shampoo. Total waste of money...
Charming Salon with Excellent Stylists – If you enjoy a relaxed, warm, at home atmosphere then there is no salon that I could better recommend than JuJu. Everything from the decor to the staff is charming and inviting. The friendly greeting, the warm cup of tea, and the beautiful aromas all contribute to making your visit to JuJu a truly wonderful experience. While all of these things are absolutely great, they are just a plus for me because what I am truly looking for is fabulous hair when I walk out of the salon. Luckily, JuJu is able to give me ALL of that! From the day JuJu opened I have been a customer, and from the day JuJu opened I have heard nothing other than compliments about how fabulous and beautiful my hair looks. My color is always vibrant and rich, and my cut is always precisely what I'm looking for. I have also gone to JuJu for a couple of special occasions, and my hair has always looked fit for any red carpet. Julie has truly brought her own charisma to the salon, and I can't imagine going anywhere else.
So if gorgeous hair is what you're looking for, rest assured that JuJu Salon & Organics is 100% the salon for you!
Rush to the finish – I have been going to Juju for a while, and I'd say that my experiences with cuts and color have been 90% positive. My last experience was good, except that the finishing touches of the cut were totally rushed and I got some lasting neck irritation from sloppy razoring and lost about half a sideburn in the process. I really like the salon and the stylists, but I plan to go elsewhere if something like that happens again. When you spend that much money on your hair, you want to walk out the door feeling confident and like you were taken care of.
Great Place to get your haircut. – cr040378...I dont understand how you had a bad experience @ JuJu? Between the atmosphere and the talented stylist, you should have walked out of there happier than ever.
Camille has to be one of the most talented stylist in the city. Though she has never cut my hair she used to cut my best friends hair and also my mothers hair. My mother has thin hair and Camille took the time to examine it and give her the proper cut and style. Every time she cut my mothers hair, my mother would look, and feel 15 years younger. She loved it. Even though my mother hasn't gotten it styled from Camille in a few months, she always looked amazing. I also watched Camille cut hair for a full day and never once did I see her give an attitude to anyone (she is extremely friendly) and everyone that left looked beautiful. I guarantee the people that snickered were jealous (and insecure) and you probably looked great. Everyone leaves Camille's chair (and JuJu) looking amazing.
