Staff engaged with each other and not the customer. Staff took personal phone calls while I was being serviced. Staff was not prepared when I arrived. Staff did not inform me prior to my arrival that there were going to be additional charges for the services I scheduled because my Groupon expired. I will not return ever nor will I refer anyone else to this establishment. I was very disappointed and so was my guest who received this as a gift.

I had a good facial but it was quite difficult to reach them to make an appointment. Also, without a groupon this place is very expensive.

We started off on bad footing when they did not have any record of my reservation. I regret I did not get the person's name who scheduled my services, I usually do. As a result, I had to split my services into two separate visits, Friday and Saturday. I had to rearrange my schedule, but I did not want my Groupon to expire.

The services rendered were of poor quality. I am having a very difficult time finding the political correct words to use to describe the experience. Very minimum time given for our feet to soak and even less time given to removing the dead skin which is the purpose of pedicures. The manicurist that service me changed the shape of my nails without asking would not recommend this facility ever

They should start services at appointed time. I waited over 15 minutes. The only parking is metered and two hours is the maximum parking time. They also need to be more careful with mani/pedi tools relative to keeping them sterile. One was dropped on the floor and not sterilized again.

I have to wait almost 40 minutes before I was waited on. When I mention that I don't wait well, the technician seem to be brother about it. Other wise I did like the way she did my nails.

They were so unorganized, I made a reservation and I still had to wait an hour. I was so aggravated that I didn't even enjoy my services.

I was disappointed in the manicure. They did not cut the cuticles and did a poor job filing. They did not massage the hands or use any moisturizing cream at all. I did not complain based on the price I paid. When I asked what this mani-pedi would normally cost, I was surprised as I would never go back & pay that amount. Sorry, I am not usually a nay-sayer. The place was lovely and the people were very nice.

From Our Editors

After being gifted with a free car on The Oprah Winfrey Show, makeup artist Kiley Russell sold her prize and used the profits to launch Big Girl Cosmetics, a line of mineral-based makeup and body products never tested on animals or underage mannequins. Years later, the company opened Big Girl Makeup Bar & Spa in Hyde Park, where friendly staffers regularly pamper visitors with facials, waxing, and massages infused with Big Girl products. Nail artisans augment manicures and pedicures with a chocolate scrub or honey-almond lotion before slicking talons with DBP- and formaldehyde-free polish. Feminine décor, such as bright pink walls and silhouettes of sassy gals, reflects the energetic, cheerful service that accompanies even the most relaxing of massages and facials. Eager to go the extra mile, the staff tops off every facial with a shoulder massage and a complimentary forged report card with straight As.
