Amazing Facials! – I have been receiving skin brightening treatments and facials from Amanda to address my hyper-pigmentation, fine line wrinkles, and other skin issues. I have noticed a remarkable improvement in my skin quality, with more even skin tone and less dullness. I have received many compliments about how beautiful my skin looks. I wear less makeup these days and my husband says I look younger, more polished and refreshed. Amanda is very knowledgeable, detail oriented, professional. She is also very passionate about her work. I also really like the line of products she is using. Her pedicures are also very good. If you want incredible skin, Amanda is your gal.
good estheticians. But stylest needs improvement – The waxing was good. I was asked to strip completely down (waist down) for a traditional bikini wax. This was new for me [a bit uncomfortable] but the esthetician was very professional. I like the wax that they used. The end result was very good. Fair price. --- I regret that I do not remember her name. (Sorry). She was the blonde one.
I went back later for a hair cut since I had a fairly good experience before with the waxing. Brittany did my cut and color. I wouldn't call her work horrible, but she is in need of improvement. The cut was fine, not the best, but good enough.
The color was not so great. I did not communicate that I wanted full highlights, but given the price b/t full and particial I wish she asked before she started on the full. The highlights done on the front and the top were fine, but the ones underneath were horrid. They were chunky and started over an inch down from my scalp. Luckily it was underneath and was not seen, but for what I paid for I would have expected better work.
The blow out and styling was poor too. I can give myself a better blow out at home that what I paid for here.
Awesome! – I wen to Sybil's for my first Brazilian Wax. Jess is absolutely awesome! She kept talking to me throughout the whole process and kept my mind off of what was going on. I barely felt anything at all. I will definitely be going back for my next wax.
I found my girl!!!! – So i have been to Dean of Shadyside a handful of times to see Jamie. She was a professional right off the bat. She asked me specific questions to better understand my lifestyle and the time i''m willing to put into my hair. Although i was hesitant to have my color done because of the upkeep she assured me the regrowth would not be too noticeable..... Any way, After i fell in love with her....and my hair again, she left Deans. After a couple of months of bouncing around from salon to salon in search of another stylist i purchased a living social for Sybils. Walked in the door and there she was. I almost screached because i was so happy. lol. I have a few friends that went to her as well. They were also happy to find her again.
Only Con: Dont love the styling Products.
Great waxing! – I took a chance on this salon when I move here in August. Although there were alot of negative reviews, Amanda the waxing technician got great reviews. So I made an appointment hoping for the best and..... she lived up to the hype! Seriously the most painless down there waxing ever! She uses two different waxes and oil, not baby powder people, so the wax and hair just glide off! They have a frequent waxer program and I am almost to my 10th which will be free! I just made an appointment for a massage, so we shall see how that turns out!
beautiful haircut, perfect brows – I have been to many upscale salons in the area after moving here a few years ago. It is obvious that the stylists here have had really good training. Lisa fixed a really bad cut. She made my hair look beautiful. My hair color didn't turn out quite as expected because it had been processed so many times (elsewhere) so it pulled a lot of red which didn't look good on me. But the coloring job itself was good.
Amanda gives the best brow wax in the city. She could be doing brows for the movie stars.
I just heard Lisa is moving, but I have seen the other stylists' work, so I will see Steph next.
Horrible all the way around – this salon was completely disappointing--in every way possible. The stylist was unfocused and pulled at my hair. May hair actually looks worse coming out than it did going in. I paid over $100 for something I could have gotten for $30 at supercuts..DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE...the customer service was also horrible. When I called to cancel one of my services the receptionist kept me on hold for 10 minutes in the middle of a busy work day until I hung up. I am really upset about how much this salon cost for really giving me nothing in return except for a really bad day and a lot less money in my pocket.
Fake postings Re: Salon 5844, now this salon
By jennifer b.
I am a client and am sick of these hair salons being so silly. I am so tired of seeing these fake "positive" reviews. Read this from another salon. This is what is going on here at this salon:
Salon 5844 is Posting FRAUDULENT Reviews!!! 12/03/2008 Posted by honestreviewer01
There is an obvious pattern in these reviews. The negative review on 11/9/08 was followed by three 5 star reviews on 11/11, 11/12, and 11/14. There were actually no reviews since 7/10 which makes it extremely coincidental that three positives would get posted two days after the negative. I highly doubt that customers, like the one on 11/12, will ask people to book appointments too. The truth is, the employees or owners post these reviews to keep the ratings high. The negative review on 11/9 is not the only complaint with this salon...scroll down and see the others but they are skewing the data and pushing the negatives off the main page. Per the terms and conditions of Citysearch, postings by employees/owners is unnacceptable and can be removed since it decieves the customer. User Review Guidelines UNNACCEPTABLE CONTENT: 3. Reviews submitted by the reviewed business's employees (past or present) or competitors as determined by Citysearch. An owner, like Larry, that hangs up on any customer is just plain nasty. You can either take my advice and pay equivalent or less at Capristo (next door) or Jacques Dessange (Shadyside) to get the best in Pittsburgh or flush your money at 5844 to get the same old you can get for less anywhere else in Pittsburgh (Great Clips, Super Cuts, etc.).
WOW. Best service in the Burgh – I have been a patron of Sybil's Salon for about 2 years and I really like it. I have tried other salons but this one is the best for facials, waxing and mani/pedi's. JESS IS THE BEST! Looooooove the way she does my eyebrows and she is so friendly and easy to talk to. She also does the best nails and polish job I have ever experienced. I have given up painting my own, she has spoiled me! And I really like the Skinceuticals product line, great moisturizer. Even the gift certificates are printed out and personalized, which is a nice touch!
