I think the five-star reviews of this place must have been written by the employees to trick people into thinking this was a classy establishment. While its not terrible, it's certainly not what I look for in a nail salon and definitely not worth the price. I was looking for a place closer to home since I live in fountain, and found this one in YP with seemingly great reviews. When I walked in the door, my immediate thought was that the place was tiny, cramped, and dirty-looking. All the posters in the windows are years old and faded, the windows themselves are dirty, the floor was dirty, the techs' tables were cluttered with crap...to make it worse, even though I was the only one there, they employees were all just lounging around watching a movie (one was even sleeping, and remained asleep in a pedicure chair the whole time I was there!) and didn't bother to get up and greet me. They just asked what I wanted. I said gel polish, which was listed as $20 on the price sheet by the door. I thought ok, even if the service isn't great, that's ten bucks cheaper than what I usually pay for it. Still kind of grossed out by the look of the place, I go sit down with my tech. While my nails look fine, they certainly don't pamper you here or give you the quality of service that other salons do. He didn't soak my cuticles or even bother to trim them (and I have horrible cuticles), he just dove right in with the file and grinder. I should also mention, there is NO SINK in this place! So you can't wash your hands, they just blow the nail dust off with a can of air. I'm glad he didn't trim my cuticles because his tools were in a plastic pencil box and had been used on who knows how many people without being cleaned (the salon I normally go to, Skyline Nails, charges you $1 but they open a fresh, sanitary pack of tools for every person, which I love). He kept giving me crap about my color choice (if I want black, don't harass me or keep asking me why I want black). When he was done, he did massage my hands with lotion, and then charged me $30 ($10 more than the price listed on the sign). I didn't bother to ask about it because a) that's the same price I pay elsewhere, so no real loss I guess and b) I kind of just wanted to leave. I was wholly unimpressed with this place and will not be going back. The only nice thing they do is give you a punch card that entitles you to some money off after ten visits, but I have no desire to go back there one more time, let alone ten.
After receiving a terrible haircut and color job for well over $200 at one of the most expensive, overly franchised salons in Colorado Springs, I was mortified and I was in desperate need of a color correction and fix for my cut. I frantically did an internet search for any other salon that seemed reputable, and I'm so relieved that I found Styles Salon. I saw Stephanie, and she got me in right away. She took her time to analyze what the previous stylist had screwed up, asked me plenty of questions about my hair and how I style it, and really took her time to come up with a plan to fix my hair. I was so happy with Stephanie's knowledge, patience, professionalism and attention to detail. I felt safe in her hands. She fixed the botched haircut- it's super cute! And the color is worlds better than it was when I walked in. I'm so glad I've found a stylist in the Springs that I can count on to do a great job. I highly recommend this salon. Everyone there seemed knowledgeable, patient, attentive, and professional, and their prices are reasonable for a job well done.
