Truly a day in the life of a celebrity – I bought my wife a gift certificate worth quite a bit for our 2 year anniversary. And let me start by saying that she enjoyed herself immensely. With two kids ages four and one it is quite difficult for her to spend the time on herself and maintain the way she did before the kids. So that is where the spa and salon came to my mind. And judging by the way she spent the night with me she was more than appreciative, wink, wink. She told me about how it wasn't just like a normal time of getting her hair done. The way the staff welcomed her from the entrance symbolized the day she was going to have. They provided food, which the owner Bob, whom I had met myself when obtaining the certs., made up special for her and my sister, who also gave overwhelming reviews of the service and professionalism of the staff. They got several things done, and all were top notch, but what stood out the most to me from my wife's testimony was how all of the girls were unbelievably friendly and accommodating to her every need. Continualy making sure they were ok, and if they had any need what so ever. This is a place that she will visit again since the cert. i gave her had enough for several visits. I would suggest any husband to go the same route, when that special time comes around, or even if you just want to surprise the misses with a special something extra, because she will not be disappointed, and I assure you if she isn't neither will you.
Best place to unwind.... – I hosted a bachelorette party at this spa. The entire party was pampered and spoiled! Staff took their time performing a variety of services. They were conversational and very friendly!! I didn't feel rushed like you do with other spas. Our guests left the spa satisfied and refreshed. Prices were reasonable besides I am willing to pay extra in price (If need be) for service like this. If you are offered food, I recommend it!!! "Bob" is a great cook!!
Thank God! – Needed a repair cut. God I hate when people don't listen. I said, "trim about a half inch off". She went crazy and just kept cutting. Thank God Details was open on a Monday. Even decided to get a dab of color while I was at it. I think I'm going to try a facial next week.
Always the nicest – As always, Details Rocks. The staff is always the nicest. They make you feel like you belong. Not snotty at all. Almost to homey. Sometimes I just hang out afterwards and talk. I've never been there when it's that busy which is a little strange. The work they do is first rate, all the way. They never try talking me into things I don't need and they always have done a great job. A friend told me that her hair was too short but in the same breath said that the picture she showed them was short also. Got laser done also. That was a lot less painful then waxing,. No in-grown hairs either. Oh yeah, went to a party there about two weeks ago, Now that was fun!!!
saved the day! – everyone said that they wouldn't work on my hair. They use something called enzymes. It doesn't cause further damage. Thank God! The brassy hair I received I left with from the other salon,(that I won't mention on North, east of Dame)(Did I do that?), was unbearable. When they said I had to wait two weeks, I was mortified. All fixed. No problem. Tears gone. It wasn't $30, but neither was the brassy hair. I guess you get what you pay for.
They feed me too. I thought they were joking. Was good. Everyone was so helpful. I will definetly go again.
Not worth the money – "I normally go to a place on Western and Addison - however they did not offer a paraffin wax treatment, which is what I needed, so I saw that this establishment did. Keep in mind you can get a perfectly realaxing and 5 star manicure and pedicure for 30 dollars (cheep and cheerful- as I like to put it). It was almost 30 for just a manicure and an extra 5 for the paraffin. But I left quite unsatisfied. The best part of it was the lady who worked on me. She was very pleasant and friendly and of course I left a fair tip. But for the sake of the business' name I would either get better nail technicians or lower the price. The nail polish was messy, did not cover all of nails and a spray was used to dry them quicker. When I got home there were all these tiny bubbles from the spray and they werent dry so got ruined. Just not worth $40, If it was cheaper I would probably not be writing this but 30 is expensive for just a manicure, there are nail spas in the loop that are cheaper than that. I think I will be going back to my old place and buy a paraffin wax treatment kit.
Loves It!!!!!! – A group of friends and I went out to eat and across the street is where i saw Details and the main thing that caught my eye was the window display. So the following day I went in and I got a hot stone massage. I had never gotten a massage before and the massage therapist made me feel comfortable and at ease. She explained the procedures of the hot stone massage before she started the massage. After the massage I felt so relaxed and releaved. It was a great experience. I will be back!!!!!
Wonderful experience!!!!!! – I had a wonderful day at Details salon and spa, I got a one hour massage, which I have never had and they made me feel so comfortable, and it was so relaxing. After my relaxing massage, I got a manicure and pedicure. While I was getting my pedicure the manager "Bob," offered me steak with rice and potato's. It was delicious. The employee's are very nice and welcoming. I WILL BE BACK SOON! IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! I LOVED IT!
My hair looks great! And I'm stuffed! – This place rocks my socks!
Ok, I'll admit, my friend Mary works there - but she's freaking awesome at what she does! I've gotten my hair cut by friends before and its ended in tears... But Mary has made me a happy *and surprisingly thinner looking* lady!
PLUS the owner used to be a chef, and happened to whip up some amazing steak and potatoes for us (he even made my husband a plate when he came to pick me up). Apparently he does this all the time!
It may not be your hoity-toit Lincoln Park place - but I had a ball just chillin' and getting prettified!
this place is a filthy dump!!!!!!!! beware!!! – i went to detailes and I WILL NEVER GO BACK!!!!! i had a pedicure and ended up with a HORRIBLE FUNGUS on my toe. Because of there filthy tools and equipment i ALMOST LOST MY TOE!!!!!! THEY MAKE YOU SIGN A RELEASE BEFORE YOUR SERVICES SO WHEN THEY CAUSE YOU SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS YOUR STUCK WITH THE BILL.!!!!!!!I FOUND THE OWNER BOB BLACK TO BE VERY UNPROFESSIONAL... HE TOLD SEXUAL JOKES WHILE I WAS THERE AND IT MADE ME FEEL VERY DISRESPECTED. THE EMPLOYEES ARE EVEN WORSE...... VER YOUNG STAFF THAT WAS DRESSED INAPPROPREATELY FOR AN "UPSCALE SPA" BOTTOM LINE>>>>>>>>>>>>>> THIS PLACE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!
