Tangles Hair Design
This was my first time at this particular salon and most likely be my last. I had been looking for one for a while and, due to its proximity and a couple of positive reviews, I thought I would give it a shot. I took in pictures with me to explain to the stylist the type of color I wanted as well as the style of haircut. She did not ask many questions (which I thought was unusual) and went to work. That made me a little nervous, but I figured it was a fairly easy request, she was a professional, and with pictures, how could my request be misinterpreted? I will start with the positives. My hair cut is cute and she did a good job styling it. It looks healthy. What I did not like was the color. She missed the mark on the color - it was nothing like the picture or what we discussed. She asked me if I wanted a specific shade and I said yes. What I ended up with was no where near that shade. I was very specific about what I wanted (you learn from experience that without a picture your explanation and the stylist's interpretation can be two different things). So, it was not a horrible experience or a horrible cut. I just felt that she did not listen to what I wanted or pay attention to the pictures I brought in. Further, now I am going to have to spend more time and money to get the color to what I want. Speaking of money. I thought the cost of the color was reasonable ($90), however, I was charged for not 1, not 2, but 3 extra color mixings ($45 worth) that she used. I would understand it if my hair was extremely long, but my hair is barely shoulder-length. So, I almost feel as though either she is not experienced enough to estimate how much color to mix or it was purposely done to pad the total cost. I was hoping for and expecting more from a salon like this. I, honestly, could have gone to a Great Clips for a $15 or so haircut and just did the color myself and would have been happier with the results.

Divine Appointments
Mae saved me! When I walked in, out of the blue, with hair that looked like I'd stuck my finger in a light socket .... zap, FRIZZ .... all due to an over-priced, TERRIBLE perm, she cut, styled and literally SAVED my hair and my pride! I have very thin, very fine hair and I thought I was going to have to just wait and watch it all break off til I was left with nothing. The woman who did it was going to refuse a reimbursement of the nearly $150 charge without even seeing what she'd done, too! I mentioned two magic words: "Courtroom" and "Judge" and viola! I got my money back from Damselfly in Homer, AK and took myself to the ladies at Divine Appointments. I know why they call it DIVINE now ... they all three, but especially Mae (May?), are inspirational! They gave me back my faith in hairdressers and gave me back a nice hairdo, without any frizz and with style, too! GOD BLESS THEM! Will refer EVERYONE I know to these fabulous ladies!

Michael's Jewelers
i had the total opposite experience of the other review here. i purchased a beautiful ring from michael's jewelers, then waited months to propose to my wife. After months of the ring in my position i found a crack in the diamond, i returned to michael's to see what could be done... they said it probably happened to it while mounting the stone, because it was a bigger sized side stone, and there was two of them, they ordered two new stones so they would match side to side at no charge! Since then i returned to buy a set of earrings for a birthday present, the earrings were beautiful and my wife wore them into the michael's to say thanks. When in the store she saw the exact earrings in a drop down version at an increased cost, the owners let me trade in the earrings that were worn for the upgrade and gave me a deal on the cost. i have never had better service! Thank You Michael's Jewelers!

Michael's Jewelers
It downright tickles me that there is a review on here suggesting Mindy and Dave are not honest. Businesses don't make it to the status that Michael's has in this town by being shady. When I bought an engagement ring at Michael's, Mindy was taking me through the paperwork for the stone and told me about the registration. I thought it was crazy that something so small had a number on it. Mindy invited me to come around the counter and take a look at the diamond and see the registration through her microscope. I love that when you walk in, you're doing business with the owners of the store. It was pretty clear from my experience that they cared more about building a relationship and earning my future business than just one sale. I don't really leave reviews online, but it is absurd to say these guys are not honest or honorable and I felt compelled to speak up.

Rodabo Salon Suites
I had made an apt with Lorraine to get a cut, oil treatment, style and wax. My apt was originally at 9:30 and she was running late, so I ended up rescheduling, and when I got there I waited 20 mins past my apt time, she said I had a 70's haircut, bc it was cut straight across and she ended up giving me layers, which I told her when I sat down that I didn't want them, and after my brow wax, it normally gets red and goes away within an hour or two, but this time there was a dried up blood spot underneath my eyebrow, and it was red and bumpy for almost 3 days after my apt. This has never happened to me, I will not be going back!

In Style Salon & Day Spa
Joy does such a beautiful job of cutting and coloring my hair. I always get compliments on how beautiful my hair looks and I have long hair. She is such an expert when it comes to color. She does my friends hair coloring and my daughter's coloring with highlights and lowlights. Their hair just comes out beautiful. It's always so shiny and healthy looking. I won't let anybody else touch my hair. I have been going to Joy for years and have always had a beautiful cut and color. I can't imagine you not being happy with her services.

Salon Demetri
I've been in Alaska for 10 months now and just found Sabrina at Salon Demitri!!Sabrina took the time to really understand what I was looking for. She offered her professional insight and explained what I envisioned through her eyes. She nailed it! I walked out sublimely happy and please with my haircut. And I have been receiving compliments since walking out the door. I will not get my hair cut any where else in Anchorage, ever

Mindy and Dave have both been absolutely wonderful in assisting me with several purchases, and some jewelry repairs and modifications. My purchases have been beautiful, of excellent quality, exactly as agreed upon, and always bring the highest compliments. I absolutely refer family and friends to Michael's Jewelers, without hesitation, and have sent 2 of my kids there for their engagement/wedding rings.

Tips & Advices
Interior designers can generally work on every type of room, but one should not assume that all of them can work on every type of space. More complicated projects--for example those in buildings with historic preservation strictures, or those that are going for sustainability certifications--will be suited to interior designers with specific expertise. Also, interior designers that have experience in a certain type of project may not want to take on projects that are outside their expertise. For example, an interior designer who has only worked on commercial projects may not want to do a small private home.
Every interior designer has their own style, but some designers are more versatile than others. Some really do specialize in functionality and code compliance, whereas others are more focused on aesthetics. Interior decorators are completely focused on visual impact, and therefore should be reviewed and selected based on how well their style is a match for the client’s tastes.
Full-service interior design starts with an assessment of a site and the client’s long-term needs for that space. It encompasses concept design, floor plans and lighting plans, providing project specifications to contractors, supervising  contractor negotiations and installations, applying for permits, and shopping for all the materials and pieces for the project. On top of this, there are the “decorator” deliverables, i.e. creating the aesthetic of the space, selecting wall colors/covers and furniture pieces, purchasing products and installing them.
An interior designer may come into a development project very early on, working with the developer and architect from the pre-construction phase. They may be the one to design floor plans, decide where to place interior walls, and supervise contractors that are installing elements of the build. They often work on commercial projects, although many of them work on residential projects. Interior designers can “switch hats” and do interior decoration, which means they are only focused on the aesthetic elements and visual components of a residence.
An interior designer or interior decorator should ask a potential client what the scope of the project is, what the projected budget is, what payment structure the client wants, and what the timeline for the project is. Also, they should be asking whether the client has any samples of other projects they like, and would like to use as a guideline. They could also ask what the client’s budget for furniture/accessories/art is, since that in many cases is a separate amount from the budget for the designer’s labor. If an interior designer is being interviewed early into a new build or a renovation project, they might ask questions to determine whether they can collaborate with architects and contractors from early on, to execute their vision for the space. If that is not in line with a client’s wishes, the client can then say that the project scope is for interior design only.
