Every woman needs an artist – That does it - Carmen at Private Edition is officially the greatest make-up artist I have ever experienced in my 57 years. Ever since my makeover two weeks ago, I've been flooded with compliments telling me "how beautiful you look today". I noticed that not even one person has said "your MAKE-UP looks great today." My new look is fresh, clean and very natural. Honestly, if left on my own, I would never have selected this set of colors or the type of foundation I am using now that makes my skin look like porcelain-I was stuck in an old rut. You can buy make-up anywhere, (and a lot of companies in Nashville carry the same brands) but only a true artist is able to select the perfect set of colors for your skin, hair, eyes, and wardrobe, and then teach you how to apply them using techniques that are updated and stylish. Oh Carmen, where were you years ago? I'm thrilled with your work and wanted to share my experience with others.
Waxing – If you are needing a bikini wax I highly recommend Gina at Private Edition. She was wonderful and made the taunting task of getting a bikini wax a more enjoyable experience. I will definitely re-book an appointment with her in the future for a bikini wax and have already re-booked her for a brow wax. Gina always shapes my brows perfectly.
Remodeled Spa is the BEST IN NASHVILLE – Private Edition was recommended to me by a friend who said their new, remodeled store and spa was one of the best kept secrets in Nashville. She was right on! The store is easy to find since it faces Hillsboro Road. As I walked into the treatment center, I felt like I was entering a spa in New York: it was bright, chic, modern, and very clean. The staff was gracious, friendly and professional. I immediately felt relaxed. Then the pampering began. I had my brows done and the shape is beautiful! I'm very picky about my brows and was delighted to find such talent. I also received a Botox treatment that is the best I have ever received with minimal discomfort, which is really appreciated. Next, on to the spray tan. I have had this done before at another spa and was disappointed with the color, which was too orange for me, The spray tan that Sydney gave me looks completely natural and there are no lines or dark patches-she did an excellent job. Finally, I needed new make-up since I felt my "look" was becoming dated. Carmen first spent time talking to me to find out who I am--what I do, where I go, what I liked or didn't like about my current make up, and what I was trying to achieve. I'm 56 and literally NO ONE has ever shown me that type of interest before a makeover, and believe me, I've had plenty. She selected Laura Mercier makeup in beautiful colors that look fresh, clean and polished with my skin tone. The best part is that my colors can be applied heavier for an evening look, which saves me money in the long run. I left that day feeling refreshed, peaceful and beautiful. I have definitely found a "spa home" and wanted to share this experience with others. I highly recommend Private Edition.
Awesome shopping experience – Loved Victoria. She was so nice and I really connected with her.
BEST BIKINI'S & BRAZILIAN IN TOWN – I recently found this great waxer at PRIVATE EDITION named KIRSTIN. She does a great -fast bikini and i've tried alot of different people. I finally got the nerve up to get a brazilian and it hurt but she was thorough and fast.
My main concern in cleanliness and she DOESN'T DOUBLED DIP the wax stick-very important!
She turned me onto Tend skin for ingrowns. This is the best experience if had for my waxing and she does great brows, too.
Best place in town folks.....hands down!!!! – For wax services use Gina!!!!! Especially brows! Use Carmen for make-up. She's the best!!! She does the best make-up for your special events. This a great place to get high end and hard to get products. Honestly, I have gone in there numerous times in sweat pants, no make-up, hair messed up from working out....a hot mess. Honestly, I have never been treated in a rude manner. You may have all of the ladies helping someone at the moment, but the customer service is great from what I have experienced. This may not be NY City or Begdorf Goodman's, but if you want to know what store's like that are using then this is the place to come to. Linda makes sure she is up to date on the BEST products. Woo is great, but they don't offer half of the products this store does. Hope this helps...... :)
The hottest spot in town for trendy treatments good enough for celebrities. – In Short
Located in the same shopping center as Nicole Miller, Private Edition is more of a cosmopolitan cosmetics boutique than spa. Limited space makes the front crowded with folks shopping for Trish McEvoy, Laura Mercier, La Mer and Therapy Systems Color from the spa's sister store in the Mall at Green Hills. But, makeup applications and consultations are available, as is a full spa menu that includes massages, body treatments, facials and sunless tanning.
Caring service, very helpful – When I started college in Nashville 7 years ago, my face went from clear to terrible. I purchased a product that I thought would be the best, but ended up allergic to it. When I came back in they let me return it, no questions asked, and proceded to help me find a product that did work for my face. These ladies were extremely helpful and made sure that I was taken care of.
Have been helpful for 10+ years – My experience has been generally positive for a long time. I can see how this place could intimidate somebody more familiar with department store cosmetic counters - lots of pretty and high-priced products in a tasteful setting - no Clinique counter here. They have treated me as I wanted: expedient if I was in a rush (often), and helpful in explaining products when I needed information. The Therapy Systems loyalty card is pretty generous. I was treated with the same respect when I wore jeans and muddy work boots as when I shopped in a skirt and jacket. Don't know about the spa services, but may try them next.
THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC!!! – I can't believe the rude reviews I've read about Private Edition. I shop here frequently and I am always greeted by someone, even if they are busy with another customer. I always receive OUTSTANDING service!! It sounds like these other people have bad attitudes and would probably not be pleased no matter what. Most of the sales staff and aestheticians have been there a very long time so that says a lot more about their professionalism and expertise than someone who is angry because she didn't get her lip gloss fast enough. It is really nice to go into a store where you see the same faces year after year. It makes me feel confident that I am getting good advice about all of the products. Try finding that at any makeup counter, I don't care if it is New York. These women are all very knowledgeable and extremely classy!
