Never answered their phones. . .. I received a Groupon gift certificate for Christmas. I tried to call and schedule an appointment for weeks, but they never answered their phones. The coupon expired in April and I was never able to use it. What a waste of money!!
Last November 2010, I was contacted by Power Promotions in Salt Lake City to receive a 4 visit package to City Salon & Spa. Power Promotions was really pushy about getting their $50+ out of me.
Then I set up my first appointment with City Salon. The girl was late. I had the Scalp Massage (sort of), cut (which I really liked) Conditioning treatment (if I had it was not particularly memorable.)
Second visit the girl just didn't show up.
Third appointment, someone from the salon called me and said the girl I was supposed to be having my appointments with has disappeared, and apparently she was the owner and has not paid her bills - so they were being evicted from their premises .
I called Power Promotions, and they said to give it time... that City Salon was working out a plan.
Today, April 22, I called again... and both City Salon and Power Promotions have non-working telephone numbers.
I believe I have been scammed. Should I Get Gephart?
If they ever do get back in business... DON'T GO THERE! That is my advice. They are Bad, Bad, Bad!!!
I went on a Groupon and thought I would try out the place. Terrible. Just plain terrible. The girl doing my mani/pedi was rude. She was fast, messy and down write sloppy. She finished my toes and I could see the old nail polish still on them! She acted like she could care less if I ever came back again. The shop was very unprofessional. Receptionist was doing her toenails next to me. Not friendly, not even close to being friendly. It was like they went out of their way to make sure I did not come back. I even tipped the girl thinking maybe we was having a bad day. She couldn't even say thank you. Never going back.
Good thing I didn't pay full price.
Worst salon experience in history.
The first time I visited City Salon, I had bought a pediure here through Groupon. It was horrible- the girl was texting and on her phone the whole time about her dramatic weekend. She didn't do a nice job on the painting so when she stepped out, I did a second coat myself.
The second time I visited City Salon, I had recieved a four-visit gift package. The first visit I went for was supposed to be a wash/head massage, cut & style, but I could already tell I didn't trust her so I jsut said the hairwash and scalp massage, and style please. This is the WORST washing I have ever had, and I used to work in a salon so I know good and bad. She didn't even get all of my hair wet and then didn't rinse all the shampoo out. She put conditioner on the roots only and then washed it right out- there was no sign of any kind of massage :( I let her try to blowdry it and stayed patient but finally I just had to finish it myself! Bad bad bad.
This salon does a lot of cheap deals but don't buy them, they are NOT worth it.
