This is the worst salon I have ever visited in my life. The owner of the salon, Iris Gilbert, claims to know her profession AND ??style,? but clearly she has no idea what a haircut is, let alone ??style.?

I was waiting to get another service done when she convinced me that I needed a haircut and that she was only going to shape my hair. Being a professional, always struggling to shave time and avoid commuting, I agreed. Plus, I am new to the area and don??t know much about salons.

She took off good 2-3 inches off my already-short hair, despite being told not to make it short. She took my side burns off, with one being noticeably longer than the other. She cut my hair unevenly all over in the name of style.

If style is left side of my bangs shorter than the right, I REFUSE to be stylish. If style is longer hair in the back and shorter in front and top, I REFUSE to be stylish. If style is visibly shorter hair on the left side of my head than the right, I certainly REFUSE to be stylish. Perhaps it??s the style in Eastern Europe but in the US.

Do NOT go to this salon. You might want to save your money but you will spend double the amount to fix the damage done!

I moved to Frederick about a year ago. I friend wanted me to go with her because she stated she always got her nails done at this place. I wasn't very comfortable with the way it looked but I trusted her. I only went two times. I ended up with a bad case of "fingernail fungus". Cali Spa is dirty! Now I know why this so called "friend" said she only goes to one person. She knew something I didn't.

If I could I would give this place a half a star! I went here because I was a bridesmaid for my best friends wedding. I had told the woman I wanted medium/caramal brown highlights (I have dark brown hair) well going there and her doing my hair, my hightlights turned out BLONDE! When I seen it I told her to tone it down, WAYYY to light for my hair, so she did but not much Then she flat ironed my hair, half assed it but then had to nerve to charge me more! She rushed me out of the chair. She ended up charging me $180. Going home and having time to look at my hair and think. I was pissed!! So I called and wanted them to fix it. They refused. Then after we canceld everyones's apt for the wedding they called saying they would fix it.Well they said they would fix it on the day of the wedding! SO i just asked for my money back! They refused. I had paid thema check ,well about a year later they finally took the money out! And my bank said there was nothing I could do about it! So I will never go back. Oh when the same woman cut my friends her said cut it dry, didnt wash, shampoo nothing!

We went to Cali spa based on a user review on google, to get a mani/pedicure before a wedding. The price was 35 dollars, which is comparable to other salons. The problem was the pedicure was simply a foot soak, a pumice stone to the heal and some nail polish. The toenails were not trimmed or filed, no base coat and only a second coat after I requested it. The manicure was not much better. The nails were filed unevenly and the nail polished chipped before the wedding. (I had asked for OPI as opposed to the generic brand on display and was told OPI costs extra!). I went with a man who also got a manicure and his consisted of his nails being clipped and buffed, nothing more.

Worst of all I never saw them sanitize the equipment! After she was done with my manicure, she put the instruments back in her drawer without even washing them! Stay away from this place!!!

My husband got me a gift certificate to this place. The first day I did a manicure and pedicure. The lady was very sloppy and the tools she used on my feet was cleaned by dipping them into the water my feet were already in. My manicure was by the same girl also did a poor job. She messed up a nail as she was polishing and didn't bother to fix it. The next day I went back to finish out the gift certificate. I started with the massage. The lady wasn't too bad but, she wasn't good either. I've had many massages to compare it to and this was by far the worst. Now I'll get to where it really sucked. The facial. The lady that was doing it didn't speak much English. I told her I had sensitive skin and she said ok but I guess she didn't understand me. I'm almost positive she wasn't a licensed esthetician because I've had facials before and they actually look at your skin. She didn't even have the lights all the way up. I was still charged when I left the place in tears. Went back to get the cash back on the rest of the certificate and explained my dissatisfaction but, they wouldn't return what was left.

I went to Cali Nails after they had changed to Cali Spa and was pleasantly suprised!! They do Wonderful Pedicures and Manicures and even have hair services, permanent make-up services and perform facials!! I am saving up my money to get my eyebrows permanently tatooed on my face, that way I never have to use brow powder again.

PROS: Friendly Staff who is there to please you!!
CONS: They might rush you out the door if they are busy!!
