I came here for the first time to get a Brazilian waxing done. This is not the first time I have had this done. After paying $45, she left most of the hair still there. My skin was blistered where she had repeatedly waxed the same spot.

I was given a gift certificate for a massage for 1 1/2 hours, which is really the best lenth of time for a massage, and really was looking forward to it. HOWEVER, the massage "therapist", and I use the term loosely, ruined the whole thing for me. Never even asked if I had certain areas I had problems with or if there were any areas I didn't want massaged. Draping was clumsy and didn't work on the entire leg - stopped mid-thigh!!! front and back. Boy, was that irritating.

I really don't want to hear someone yakking randomly and also complaining about inhouse/owner issues.
I felt greasy - too much oil prevents really being able to move the tissue. Never was deep enough or relaxing in any way. It was more annoying than anything. AND I have tattoos and they don't need to be commented on.

When I found out later (by calling), the 1 1/2 hour price, I was stunned! WAY OVERPRICED!!!!
Also, whomever answered the phone was clueless when I asked basic information re:the different massage "services"!!
This all adds up if you look at the ALLURE website. Massage must not be important, because this area gives you no more info than the receptionists!!! This is so typical of what is basically just a poorly decorated hair salon, (Tabitha, where are you when we need you!)
Maybe (please, let's hope) that they are better w/hair, because they know nothing about massage. To be a real spa, "ALLURE", you can't just throw on extra services to make the extra buck, but it sure looks good on the package menus!! Right?
ALLURE DAY SPA - not alluring at all!!!!!!!! they don't rate any stars, but this won't post w/o at least one.

Ok, when I first moved here from NYC I called around for the most popular hairdressers. I would go in to see their work. If not impressed I leave. When I called Allure the girl whispered "Roy". But he was ALWAYS booked. So it took a while for me to finally get him. Ladies, don't let his looks fool you. He can do whatever you ask for, I say as long as you have a picture. Excellent colorist and Fantastic cutter. Oh, he blowdries hair like nobody can and that is HARD to find in this town!!

Cons: hairdressers need a makeover

Had a brow wax and massage. Brow wax was okay (not great), but massage was terrible. Massage therapist kept the room cold so SHE was comfortable, started with my feet, and sort of rubbed randomly instead of therapeutically. Will NEVER return.

I have been to spas before. But this was the first time I had a massage. I also got a facial,manicure and pedicure. Everything was great. The staff was very friendly and courtieous. They catared to my every want. But there was one down side and only one. The massage therapist wouldnt stop talking. She talked the entire time I was in there. She was getting things out of the cabinents loudly and making all kinds of noise. She even had gum in her mouth popping bubbles. The woman who gave my facial was excellent. And so was everyone else. They really make you feel welcome. I reccomend it.

This is a fabulous full service day spa. I was given the "Queen for the Day" spa package as a gift. It was a full day of complete pampering. The staff was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend the body wrap. It was heaven!

I recommend to go here for a full day of pampering, it's great and I promise that you will come out feeling completely different! Prices are reasonable and cheaper when you do take advantage of the packages they offer and the staff is extremely well trained.

I had a massage and a facial waxing service...Receptionists were friendly and thorough, BUT...
The Massage was pleasant, overall, but by no means therapeutic or relaxing. The therapist was so talkative I felt like I had to talk back, so I couldn't relax. And it wasn't the best, as I've had many different massages, so don't waste your money.
The waxing was a eyebrow, lip, chin...what a JOKE! She wouldn't do my eyebrows how I wanted them done, so I had to go home and finish the job myself...and she didn't even do all of my chin because her next client had arrived---It would've taken less than 5 min.

So for 3 waxing services: $45 total...plus tip---for what? To have to go home and finish it myself!!
I've learned my lesson about this place...it's just average, if not sub par.
***I will say this though...that I posted this review 11/14/07, but things DO change so if you're looking at this a few months from now...a spa can have a complete turnover in employees by then. It's the nature of the business.
***Also, My friend had a pedicure and was pleased...so this review has no bearing on the nail services.

Cons: Limited Parking, On a busy intersection, Customer Service, Pricing

I had found a stylist at Allure that I really liked. Unfortunately, she left and the receptionist would not tell me what salon she had gone to, but wanted to recommend another stylist. So I saw another stylist for a haircut. I showed her a picture and talked to the stylist about how I wanted my hair cut. Her reply was "I'm just going to free hand it." The hair cut was SO bad, it was like one type of haircut in the back and a completely different style in the front. The next time I got my haircut, the stylist asked me how I had even been fixing my hair. Basically, I had to get most of my hair cut off. I will never go back to Allure and would never tell any of my friends to go there for a haircut.

Cons: wish there were more Allure salons out there!!! No cons.

I at the beginning said "Whatever you do, leave the bleach on long enough so I won't have brassy orange highlights" Well, guess what I got! The reason the highlights were not left on long enough was because her next client came in- so tough luck for me and the way my hair will look for the next couple of months! I called back and the stylist would not come to the phone and told the receptionist to tell me all she could do was to put a toner on it in 2 weeks. Toner is not going to fix this, even I know that. I spoke to the owner and she said she does not do hair and did not understand what my problem was. yeh right..no apology. Oh, and I dried my hair myself while I was there, remember her next client was there!

This is a really good salon that offers lots of different services. The prices are fair--in keeping with other salons of this caliber in the area. The hairstylists do a great job and they stock a large variety of products from Redken to TIGI to Rusk. They also do pedicures, manicures, and carry the Bare Minerals makeup collection. They are pretty friendly, and also busy so schedule in advance.

The staff is well trained and very polite. I always feel very welcome there. I got a pedicure in August and it lasted for three months without a single chip. The spa is SO luxurious! They have all these special treatments like Ear Candeling. It drains all the stuff out of your ears. I love this Spa. I give it an A+++!

Allure is the place to go when you want to feel your best! They have great spa services available at reasonable prices and the people that work there are very nice and also very good at what they do. I highly recommend getting one of the packages and really treating yourself!
