Re: Looking for Pam Gainey? – Dear Chenagirl,
Pam is now working in Lake Carolina at Total Health Spa. I am so glad she moved from this salon the serivce is awful, Pam and Mary were the only reasons that I stayed. I couldn't stand that manager girl, she was the worst person to deal with. I know a lot of folks that never returned because of her. (Can someone say zero people skills.) Anyway, it is bad to hear that you have to live with a bad cut. I don't know Josh but I've heard some stories when I would have my nails done. I know Pam will fix it, she works wonders. Hopefully you'll read this and find her soon.
image makers – Well just want you to know that I have been going to Image Makers for yrs and Pam was my stylist & cuts my hair, she does a wonderful job...Well I have been deployed for a year overseas, came back with a long hair and needed a nice haircut...they told me Pam is no longer working there...So I ask if they can put with me with someone just as good as Pam was, they put with a guy name Josh..I showed him a picture on the book I wanted a short hair cut short in the back and longer in the front...the haircut that Josh gave me didn't look nothing like what the picture in the magazine, I was so upset and wanted to cry...I told him thats not what I ask for and he said that he can fix it for me, It was getting shorter and shorter...When I was done, my hair was a wrecked, I would never go there again...I miss Pam..Does anyone know where Pam moved to...I need her back...I miss her, She was the best...Pam if you are reading this, please I need your help, give me your number...
I know how you feel and I know where Pam is. She is in Lake Carolina at Total Health Day Spa, 803.865.7720. I had my hair botched by Josh at Image Makers when they wouldn't tell me how to reach Jason. I'll never go back! I remember Pam when she worked next to Jason. I hope you are able to find her, I know just how stressfull this can be.
I drive an hour every month to visit this salon – I have a short hair style that is challenging to cut and keep looking good. Becky Harmon has been cutting my hair for 1 1/2 years, and I drive from Aiken every month to see her. She's been a great study of my hair, and I consistently get comments about how good my hair looks. Give her a call! She's a great colorist as well.
wow! – This place has really changed I do not even recognize it. They have downsized and no longer sale aveda among other things. I hope they will make it through this ruff time. I miss the old salon I remember. :-(
over priced without perks – Over priced cuts... They didnt even give a special neck or scalp massage like at most places I go. No specialty coffee drinks or music either. Not even updated celebrity gossip mags nothing to make it worth the 45$. I can get this cut anywhere. Plus very rude front desk girl both on the phone and worse in person. I won't be back!
I feel a little let down – I'm new to the area so I resourced the internet first. I read the reviews on here and I thought I would check it out. I called 3 times for an appointment and I left 2 messages. I was confused when no one returned my call but I am optimistic. I thought this place must be busy which is why I never heard back. After reaching someone on the 3rd call I was let down. I asked for the girls listed in the reviews in hopes I would get lucky. I was told that Pam, Stephanie and Samantha are no longer there. I asked the girl if I could make an appointment with someone that has the same level of experience as those girls. I was placed with a guy I would describe as a "rockwannabe" which is awesome. His style made me really excited. I was thinking he has to be a awesome artistic, creative gay guy. He isn’t any of those things I was let down and felt confused. The girl on the phone told me he had 5 years experience. When I asked him he told me he had only been a stylist a year. Not that I really care but when I ask and was told one thing I expect it to be true. I left feeling really dissatisfied with my over all experience. I was there for 3.5 hours for a cut with a few highlights for fall. It's not the time or the level of experience that mattered to me. It's the finale result that matters. I would sit all day for someone if the results were worth it. All combined, time, money, over-all experience and customer service I would have to say no to ever going back. Also they were very pushy when it comes to product sales. I would set up a class on how to sale to customers if I were management. I'm sure at some point this salon was "the place" but it looks like all of the good people left and they hired people from great clips or Wal-Mart who knows.
Response to the satified customer below. – My girlfriend gets her hair cut and colored by Stephanie as well as three of her friends. They are all good looking women and always love their hair and I do too. Let's first start off by saying this post/rant loses most of its credibility when people are called "fat" and "trolls". Clearly this person isn't mature or sane enough to walk into a salon to get her hair colored. It is amazing that people like this have lasted thing long on planet Earth. It sounds like she ran around the salon making a fool out of herself and everyone for no reason. So what, you didn't like your color. If you're not prepared for such a dramatic change in your hair, just leave it the way it is, or maybe next time you should just stick with the DIY stuff from Wal-Mart if you can't trust, or at least give your stylist, whoever she, or he is, the benefit of the doubt that they will do their best to make you look your great.
Pam has to be the most talented stylist ever! – I consider myself to be a very picky customer when it comes to my hair and finding a place that I would go back to. I'm the kind of woman that usually will run home and fixes my hair the way I like it after getting it done. Pam has to be the best colorist and stylist I've ever been to and that is saying something because I've been around the block! I've had some seriously bad haircuts and have had hair trauma for years - but now I've been redeemed!! I've never had so many compliments on my hair in my life. Thank you Pam for doing such a great job! I'm sorry if everyone doesn't see how talented you are!! You rock girl!
Awesome color and cut! – Just came from the salon! Samantha was great...very friendly, took her time and really listened to what I liked and disliked about the color the previos stylist had done to my hair...she did an amazing job giving me the color and cut I have been wanting for so long! I can't wait to go back! Thanks so much Samantha!
YAY for Great hair! – I have been going to Image Makers Salon now for a few years, and just wanted to share how GREAT all of the stylists are! :) I was having some hair "issues" a couple years ago when I first went in-- due to a number of reasons my hair was breaking off and was in great need of repair... I was put with a stylist named Pam and she gave me guidelines to follow to get my hair to grow, tips of what to do with my hair to make it look better while it was growing, and products that would help my hair grow faster and healthier--- She went above and beyond to help me so that I could get my hair back to its original state. I can't thank her enough because now I have BEAUTIFUL hair... I would reccomend any of the stylists at the salon as I have met most of them over the past few years! :) Great salon, great people, great hair!
