This was my first visit to Shear Impressions, and I was worried. BUT... I could not have asked for more. Sarah, the stylist, was kind and extremely knowledgeable, and no one could have done a better job. I have found my Salon for all my future needs. Thanks Sarah. See you soon.
Beautiful salon the staff was so friendly! I got the best haircut I've ever had! I highly recommend this salon!
About a week ago, I was surprised by my mother with a pedicure. I am 8 months pregnant and I’m finding it hard to paint my toes myself so I was rather excited. We were visiting from West Texas to celebrate my daughter’s birthday before the arrival of my new baby. My sister in law recommended this salon because she said she had a great experience with a foot and hand massage and was offered wine during her pedicure. My mother dropped me off for my 3 o’clock appointment (about 5 to 10 minutes late) for the “ultimate pedicure” treatment and asked the young lady how long it would be so she could pick me up. We were told it would take about an hour and then I was led to the spa area. I was told to select a paint color. I chose two. I told the worker that I liked one color but it didn’t seem like there was a lot in there so just in case I selected a second color. I was offered a drink and I accepted some ice water. The young lady and I made pleasant conversation while she removed the color I had on my toes. From here, the experience goes downhill fast. She seemed very unsure of herself and new at performing these duties. She applied a scrub to lower legs and feet but didn’t bother to really rub it in to exfoliate the skin. She then applied a lotion and just barely rubbed it in. There was no foot massage or hand massage. She then began to paint my toes with the first color I had chosen and made a comment that it was “thick”. I reminded her that I had chosen a second color and she said the first would work. While she was working, another worker was having a conversation with another client about a cake shop that apparently sells great cakes. One worker decided she was going to go on a cake run and was taking orders. The young lady working on my feet ordered a slice of tres leches. She was then talking with another young lady and asked her if she had ordered cake and when she said she hadn’t, the worker told her they could share. The other young lady replied that she didn’t like tres leches and the worker working on my feet responded with something along the lines of, “You’re Mexican, don’t Mexicans like that stuff.” I thought this was extremely unprofessional and inappropriate. Conversations like that should not be held in front of clients and definitely not in the workplace. When she was done, the paint job was not very smooth and she asked if I wanted to sit in front of the fans. It was 4:45, an hour and forty minutes later, and my mother and my children had been waiting outside to pick me up so I told her I would just be careful. I paid $52 dollars for this “ultimate” pedicure, when I would have gotten better results at a regular basic salon for a better price. I went out to eat dinner and ran an errand with my family before making it home around 9 and managed to make it home without messing up the paint job that had been done. I sat at the couch to relax thinking my feet would be fine as it was 4 hours later, and tucked them under a blanket. When I pulled my feet out to go to bed, the pattern on the blanket was imprinted on the polish and hair was stuck in it. Apparently the polish had been so thick that it NEVER DRIED. I was so annoyed. We were there through the weekend but were too busy with my daughter’s birthday festivities and visiting family for me to go back and complain. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere if you’re going to spend 50 dollars for someone to put lotion on your feet, do a poor paint job, and make racially stereotypical comments.
