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.

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.

Very chic and stylish. Clean establishment. Not like the cookie cutter salons that are on every corner. I will DEFINITELY return. Ask for Lisa -- she was extremely nice and patient. (I had my 4 month old with me. Long story. :-) )

The service was thorough and the staff was professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place. The only downside was the parking. I had to have someone drop me off and pick me up the eliminate the parking issue.

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.
