Worst place ever! – My appointment was late, the receptionist was rude to me, the shampoo was downright painful, and my haircut was awful! I will never go here again!
Where to Find Diane – If anyone is looking for DIANE, she's now at Jermane on 10 Bridge St. at Corliss Landing. (401) 272-9230 I know anyone who's used to her waxing or facials would miss her for sure since she's just the best, so I thought I'd pass this along! I just love her and definitely couldn't switch away from her, so I'm glad she's still nearby. :-)
I Just Go Because of Diane – I've known Diane a few years now. I've followed her from her previous employment and would follow her anywhere. She is the most knowledgeable, friendly and professional Esthetician that I've ever been to. I went to see her for a service a few days ago. I had to drive around for 20 minutes to find a meter to park at. The Valet was not there. I put two quarters in the meter. I could not relax and enjoy my time with her because I had to rush out to beat the meter. I have back problems and cannot move too fast. I had to have the girl run outside to stop the meter molly from tagging my car because I could not walk fast enough to get there myself. I go there just for Diane. If she wasn't there, it wouldn't be worth the aggravation. Thank you, Carol C and family.
Excellence in Esthetic and Waxing Services! – I go to Diane for all my esthetic and waxing services. I wouldn't go to anyone else since she is a perfectionist. She is always friendly, pleasant and makes me feel comfortable. When I go to Moderne, I feel so welcome and part of the family. I'm glad I found that spa while surfing the internet. Thank you.
Wonderful Experience! – I found the spa on City Search in October and decided to give it a try. started out with an anti-aging facial from Diane. She explained all the products to me and how they would benefit me. She was a wealth of knowledge on skin care and informed me of the most current procedures to the Esthetic world. She gave me the BEST facial I ever had and look forward to going back soon. She has a friendly and professional demeanor which made me feel very comfortable and relaxed.
Next, I went to Carol. She gave me the most stylish haircut and color I have had in ten years. I felt like a new person and felt like I looked years younger. I didn't realize I was stuck in a rut until her transformation.
The overall atmosphere was so inviting. The staff is very accommodating and fun to be around. They are like one big family. Even though I come from Boston, I feel like a very welcomed part of the Moderne family.
As a person who just relocated and enjoys spa services I was impressed with Moderne's web site. That is when the quote, "All is not what it seems ", came to mind. First they put me with a stylist Riz who was GREAT and experienced but only lasted for a couple of appointments and then was no longer there. With his recommendation I tried two different esteticians who also left. After that they offered other technicians but I was still unsatisfied. They advertised Valet parking but with my work schedule I was unable to utilize the service because it did not coincide with Salon hours. But instead my vehicle was ticketed outside the salon. The word is that this salon has a reputation for a large turn over since its opening as Moderne Salon. I would not recommend this salon because of its inconsistancy in staff. Hair today gone tomorrow. What makes a salon a spa?
Great Esthetician – Diane is the best Esthetician and skin care specialist at Modern. I got my girlfriend to try her the same day and we were both tremendously satisfied. She gives the most thorough facials and her waxings are the most comfortable possible. Thank you Diane. We are glad we found MOderne on line and we'll definitely be back again. RF
Should go back to Milano – They think they are so great, but they aren't. I didn't like the atmosphere with thier nose in the air
Honesty SHOULD be your best policy! – I recently received a telephone call from Moderne Salon telling my my hair stylist suddenly left without notice. They offered me a wonderful incentive to come in and try another stylist. Initially I found this to be odd that my stylist would leave without notice; I've known him for quite a while and it doesn't seem like something he would do.
Two days after Moderne Salon's phone call I received a phone call from my stylist! I was elated that he contacted me. I asked him why he suddenly left without notice and found out he didn't leave without notice. He didn't really go into the details but from being a customer I always got the feeling that it wasn't a pleasant place to work. Turnover of employees was frequent and fast for such a small salon; you would think that being so small it would be like your own little family but I don't think that is the case.
Needless to say, I will now be following my stylist which I adore and love and I choose never to go back to Moderne Salon because they were very dishonest with their explanation of what happed to my stylist.
Honesty is always the best policy; I don't have time to play games. Funny thing is I live in downtown Providence and found Moderne Salon to be very convenient for all of my services such as manicures, pedicures, facial, and body massages....I will now be taking my business elsewhere.
Be careful Moderne Salon - you have lots and lots of competition in downtown Providence and they would love to steal your customers!
Overall the BEST in Providence – I recently paid a visit to the Moderne Salon and Spa after finding them on a website of one of the best product lines I have ever used...davines...
I have to say that I couldn't have been happier with my sytlist - Riz - and the atmosphere in the salon. I worked in the beauty industry for a good portion of my career life and had grown accustomed to the pampering that comes along with working in the field. I recently decided to re-find that special place that I could turn to for all of my pampering needs: haircuts, waxing, facials, pedicures...I have found it! You won't be disappointed with anything Moderne has to offer from atmosphere to the finished product!
