I can't believe this place is still open. I went there a couple of times and I felt as if I was slapped in the face. The place was filthy, unorganized and my manicure was the worst I ever had. This place is a joke and it takes up a prime

Go somewhere else,no one should work or have their hair done in a horrible establishment such as Brownes. The owner makes Hitler seem like Barney! Shame on her!

Pros: Staff

Cons: The owner

This has pretty much been said by many of the people before me, but I cannot stress the point we're making. Down with Brownes & Co. South Beach! It's a necessary evil to save the staff and wake up the owners.

Pros: I agree with all the other reviewers: The staff are great!

Cons: The owner, Nikki.

The overwhelming negative atmosphere is unavoidable. You can feel it from the moment you walk in. The staff try to be nice, but you can see it in their eyes. Tonight, I saw Tabitha's Salon Take Over, and now it all makes sense. Please! If you care about the staff of this salon, you will help get them out of their situation by boycotting the South Beach location and hitting the owner where she will hopefully notice--her pocketbook.

Nikki is not that person that everybody watch in the show last night-she's even worse-we just watch the top of the iceberg last night! Only person that don't realize that yet is Nikki hersrelf... just hope to see some changes now,we're not living on the 18th Century anymore and people that need to work for make a living does not deserve this kind of treatment! Respect is something that you earn because you deserve,not violating the privacy or threating others!!!

*** B O Y C O T BROWNES & COMPANY B O Y C O T BROWNES & COMPANY ***

I truly feel compassion for the hairstylists that work at Brownes and Co. with Nikki as their "boss." I hope there is a way where the stylists can rally together and use the videotaping as a violation of their privacy and get out of their contracts to find jobs elsewhere.

No one deserves that type of treatment from an unhappy tyrant like Nikki. Nikki sure has some anger displacement issues. She says her employees are not her family or friends, well I am sure if her family and friends saw the episode, they would be appauled at such behavior, or suggest that she get some help!

The woman is absolutely delusional in her ideas of running a business. I think clients who see "Tabatha's Salon Takeover" episode should boycott their salons to make her understand that her employees are the ones that are making her money. Without them, she can't pay the bills.

I've been getting waxed with Elaine for 4 years now. She's is wonderfully kind and extraordinarly professional. Aside from her warm dimeaner, her waxing is by far the best I've had in Miami. Not only is it a relaxing and soothing experience, but her technique really gets the job done. Thank you!

I had the best massage with Jackie on Tuesday 4.29.08. I am 7.5 months pregnant and she was fantastic! I don't live in Miami, but was down for one last girl?s vacation. I might have to return - she is that good. She also does regular massages specializing in deep tissue (so I was told).

i just had a glorious facial with Sue......ask for a cleansing aroma and a peel to follow.it will take 10yrs off and change your mood entirely.....great location too with a beautiful spa, really reasonable prices just $135 for the 75min treatment. i got a manicure afterwards and it was a thoroughly professional job.

Pros: great value for your $$$

Cons: none that i can tell

Yest they have a huge selection-even tho they could dust off some of the boxes. But selection doesn't make up for such poor service. Everyone there seems more interested in what went on last night than serving customers. This is definitely not Sephora where in addition to great selection you get great service. Salespeople here are moody, arrogant and rude. It's basically buy now or get out. Bad customer service and crowded dusty store is a real turn-off.

ok if you are looking all around the globe for a store like this, look no more. Miami beach is hot because of places like this. It has men's stuff for shaving you can't find anywhere and perfume & makeup it has lots. The best prices for Aveda anyewhere, i like the smell the best it's been open for years and smells like an old established pharmacy. keep it up guys we need a store like this in every city in the US

This was the worst experience I have ever had at a salon! There were multipe appointments that were confused (and several other unhappy customers) and the staff was not proactive. Instead of starting to help people they stood around and argued among themselves about what they were going to do, I should mention it is also the worst mani/pedi I have ever had. After 2 hours I finally was finished and when I complained the "owner" was called and said that since the appointment was booked correctly there was nothing she could do to compensate me. Meanwhile I was asked over 3x if I wanted a manicure and what my name was, so if it was booked correctly why did no one know my name or what I needed done? The owner then had the audacity to say I was late to my appointment which was an insane LIE, I was about 5 minutes early! I do not understand how this salon is still running?? I BEG YOU... DO NOT GO THERE!!!!

Pros: The owner does not know proper etiquette, salon is completely disorganized

Cons: NONE

wonderful staff and quality service for affordable prices (by South Beach standards, of course). My stylist and colorist were great. It's now my new salon.

I had tried a salon out in the burbs' thinking I'd save money. Ha. Well, out in the suburbs my hair orange and I paid $100 more.

But at Some Like it Hot, my hair was soft and smooth, golden blonde and gorgeous. And the stylist Lisa is so friendly and talented! Peter (colorist) was also great.

They have great hours and a super friendly staff. My shampoo girl didn't speak English, but gave me a great neck massage with my rinse. I'll take it.

After being treated rudely by an employee I asked for Manager/Director. I was given Nikki Fienberg's name. When I left a message for her, I hoped she would respond. It's been over 2 weeks and guess what? Nothing-not even a phone call. Now I understand why employees are so rude. If the boss doesn't care, why should the help!

This place is a beauty mecca for the die hard product junkie, they have stuff i never even heard of before let alone seen. it's obvious it's owned by europeans cos it has stuff from all over the globe. Zarvis, dr harris, pixi beauty all from London and aqua di parma and even Commes des garcons perfumes. the smell is divine of diptique candles wafting out the door and even hard to get Kerastase hair shampoos.

Cons: busy, pricey

With all of the chaos going on here we had to run out as fast as we could. Ther's so much friction that it makes it impossible to shop. Everyone seems mad at each other or just mad in geneal. It's a mess and all we could do was-run.

Why do I return to this place? I keep thinking that maybe this time will be different, maybe this time they'll treat me with respect. I must be crazy. It just wont happen. These people are Hell-bent on being nasty. Can somebody tell me why?

My husband and I loved the funky/bohemian intimate feel "downstairs". The staff was capable and greeted us by name. Now, the "Spa Lounge" is "upstairs"... For nails, you sit in a banquette row/ assembly line. The space is open with foot sinks, but the intimate feel is gone. The "Spa Lounge" is now a "relaxing oasis". Well, it was annoying and impossible to relax when the owner had a very audible, detailed and lengthly business meeting with 7 people in the middle of the floor. When my husband checked in the hostess indicated the computer had a different name for his time and with the person he booked. She said "Oh, the computer was down when you called. We put any name in to hold the space. What time did you call?" EXCUSE ME? What about being professional & courteous? We love the manicurists. A manicure/pedicure was $45, now $50.
