My worst experiences ever! – I have had 2 terrible experiences at this salon. The reason I went to this salon was because my friends at work had given me a gift certificate as a going away present just before my baby was born. They chose Salon 4 You because it was so close to my house. Two weeks after the birth I went in for a much needed cut and color. One of the owners cut and colored my hair. The color was much darker than I asked for it to be, and she barely dried my hair and didn't style it at all! When I pointed out the dark color, she told me not to worry because it would fade in a couple of days. (It didn't!) I felt worse when I left than I had when I came in! I went home and cried. The gift certificate was for more than my services cost and she gave me a certificate for the difference. That was 3 or 4 years ago. I have not had the courage to return for a service to use the rest of the gift certificate. However, leading up to Christmas I needed an eyebrow wax. Since funds were tight I decided to go to The Salon for You. I had them waxed and they looked OK. However, when I went to pay, I was told my gift certificate would not be accepted! THERE WAS NO EXPIRATION DATE, but they said they wouldn't take it! I was SHOCKED and embarassed! I was angry and didn't know what to say, especially since I was hesitant to go there in the first place! I payed with my own money because I just wanted to get out of there. When I got home I told my husband what happend. He of course was as angry as I was so he walked the 2 blocks to talk to them. He asked to speak with the owner but had to settle for a phone call later because she was in with a client. When she called him later, she stood by what I had been told and even refused to refund my $18 and just call us even. So along with the $45.00 gift certificate they took away from me they also got and additional $18.00... A $63.00 EYEBROW WAX!!!! Having had the 2 worst salon experiences of my life it is safe to say I will never set foot in there again!
Loved It!! – The day prior to my wedding I went to The Salon For You and had about 5 different services performed... all of them were SO relaxing, even though it was a busy day for the Salon I the staff made me feel like I was their only customer, and recieved the full amount of time for all of my services. I have been to several spa/salons and I would highly recommend the salon to anyone and will go back again! The Salon really helped me to relax through my stressful wedding weekend.
I Love It – I've been going to the Salon For You for a couple years. The owners are terrific. They really get to know their clients and offer up wonderful suggestions to make you feel and look great. Their prices are very reasonable and if you get there early you might get a bonus shoulder massage while you wait!! I'll never go anywhere else.
Nirvana in the city – Everything you need in a calm, relaxing atmosphere in a convenient location in St Paul. I have wonderful facials (try the hour and a half), scalp massages, salt rubs and more. Any treatment I have ever wanted for the body and mind is here and the staff will accomodate all needs. The waxing is fantastic...more than one type available which is rare these days. Try the hot (thick) wax for all over thoroughness and minimal irriation. And they do packages...for events!
