Stay home and do your own make up. I had read from a Yelp review that they tried not to give prime time appointments to Groupon users so I intentionally didn't mention that I was using one until after I had been told that there were Saturday appointments available. As soon as they heard I had a Groupon they tried to get me to switch to a Thursday. I stayed firm and got my Saturday appointment for 9:30am. The shop supposedly opens at 9:00 but it was locked and dark when I arrived. At 9:50 the receptionist showed up but said she was unable to unlock the building. She said that she had spoken with the owners and that they were on their way. We all (me, the receptionist, and another client) waited outside together for another 10 minutes before they arrived and unlocked the shop. Another Yelp cutomer had complained that they were ½ hour late for her appointment but I had originally assumed that was an isolated incident/ emergency of some sort. When my stylist greeted me I asked if she was okay. She explained that she was just really tired because she and the other stylist had been partying all night. Before beginning my make up, the two stylists relived their night and gossiped for ten minutes before getting to work. Their stories included someone at the party being unable to breastfeed their own child and their having to find someone else there “with milk.” When Diana finally asked how I wanted my make up I told her that I wasn’t sure, but that I knew I wanted some bright color. I described my dress and she told me that I shouldn’t wear that because it wasn’t the right color for me. When I said I knew that it was a contrast she launched into the most bizarre interpretation of color theory I have ever heard. I strongly considered taking a picture of my make up for the sake of this review, but I was too afraid to post anything of me looking like a drag queen (no disrespect to the fabulous ladies who rock drag) to go through with it. She literally drew in my eyebrows so that they reached my ears. On my way out she decided that she wanted to chat and asked me about my work. She offered to help out if my organization was hosting any fundraisers and said that lots of women who go to the salon are involved with charity work too. Seriously?! You can’t even open your own business on time! I’m not counting on you for anything! The shop itself was poorly painted (as in jet black walls that aren’t even painted all the way up to the ceiling in places), had a curtain falling off the base of the sink, and was disorganized. I never would have stayed if I hadn’t paid in advance. My liner wasn’t straight or even. I already mentioned the brows. This was just an awful experience.

very unprofessional, had to wait an hour to get the service, dirty place, unkept. The make up was awful I left and took it off as soon as I got home.

Diana was great. I really appreciated her expertise and the explanation of what she was doing. She taught me what colors would be best for me and I really appreciated her taking an interest in me. Thank you Diana. You are the best.
