Mischell did my hair. She didn't listen to a thing I told her. She looked at the picture and cut my hair in a totally different style than I wanted. She set my growing out of the top of my hair back by 6 months! I've been growing it out for a year for a chin length bob. I got a conehead shapped hairdo that I hate! She did what she thought I should have or what others have or something but it's nothing like what I wanted. I'll never go back. I'm from California too. So is Mishell... thought that meant something, like she was a good stylist. Not so. I should have listened to the reviews I saw on line. ::sigh::

I went to garbos at OakView Mall. I was getting my hair colored and cut. My gal, Emily, did a great job of making sure she knew exactly what I wanted. My hair turned out great and the color lasted for a long time. I also got tons of compliments on it. I have been going to garbos ever since and love it still to this day! Infact, I am going there today to dye my hair brown (something new from my usual beach blonde.)

I WOULD RECOMMEND GARBOS TO ANYBODY & EVERYBODY!

if you had a bad experience there I'm sure it was a one time deal. Go to Garbos at Oak view and ask for emily. You'll love her.

I wanted to plan a spa day with my best friend and my sister in law. Both my sister in law and I travelled from neighboring states to meet my friend who also had to drive an hour to meet us at the spa. I booked appointments for a 1 hour massage for my friend, a basic facial for me, and three standard pedicures for all of us.

While my friend headed into her massage, I waited for about 25 minutes before I headed back to the desk to inquire why my facial wasn't starting though Laura, the aesthetist, had been paged twice. Finally, another employee went back and got her; when she arrived at the front, I realized she had been at the front desk earlier and didn't even bother to get me to start the facial.

Once back in the facial room, she explained what she'd be doing and asked if I wanted a "customized" facial or the "express" facial that didn't include arm and hand massage and if I had seen the price list. I said I wanted the "express" facial, especially because I had the pedicure appointment and didn't want to be late as we were about half an hour late to begin, and that I had seen the price list prior to making the appointments. I never got any arm or hand massages, but she actually ended up telling the owner to charge me for the "customized" facial. The facial didn't even last an hour.

Anyway, we went onto get pedicures, and during our pedicures and talking about work, my friend inquired about how they salon employees are paid and whether they are independent contractors. The pedicurists let us know that they received a percentage of what we paid and that they are all regular employees of the salon, not independent contractors. It sounded like an hourly job with commission from the pedicurists' explanation.

After the pedicures, I wanted to double check with the desk to ensure that they used our $300 SpaFinder gift certificate to cover what I had planned on being a $292 charge for all of our services. The front desk attendant was concerned about receiving the gift certificate and went to consult the spa owner who came to the front desk and questioned the validity of the Spa Finder certificate even though I had expressly asked about using this before I made the service appointments. The owner stated that she was used to receiving gift cards but not the gift certificate that Spa Finder allows a recipient to print. The owner took my phone number and added up what the service providers had written on slips of paper and told me that we owed an additional $29 on top of the $300 that was covered by the gift certificate.

The owner said that the pricelist I was provided only listed basic service prices and that every service provider charged what they thought they were worth, which is not what the pedicurists, who did charge us each differently, stated during the pedicure. I never signed any receipt as I disagree with the charges, but sure enough, the $29 was taken out of my account from Garbo's.

I called Garbo's on Monday and was told that I need to speak with the owner if I have an issue with the charges, but that she wasn't available.

I will never go back. This experience was far from relaxing.

Pros: citrus smelling lotion

Cons: dishonest business practices

I have been to Garbo's twice so far, the first time was a disaster because she misunderstood my mom, and thought my mother said I couldn't get my hair styled. I had to wait for 10 minutes with soaking wet hair at the front of the store, I was so humiliated and had insisted that I could get my hair styled. She then styled my hair and was rushing because she had another appointment. She barely spent any time styling it and I was very disappointed when it was done. Although, I got it home and styled it myself and It was a perfect cut. So I decided to give her a second chance, I went back to get a fun look for the summer and I didn't really know what i wanted. She gave me a fun look with lots of volume, that took a little bit of time to get used to, but I loved. She cut my bangs a bit shorter than I wanted but they grew out in about a month and although sometimes my stylist seems nervous, once she has a vision she just goes for it and I love it. I wish she could be more friendly sometimes, I went to Garbo's because my brother used to go and was satisfied with it and because one of my best friend's had such a wonderful experience with stylist, that when that stylist started her own salon she stayed her customer. I was hoping for someone like that, who I would love to come back to. I just feel awkward for the hour i get my hair cut in.

Would not recommend. Tried Oak View and Regency Garbo's. Disappointed. Terrible cut job, awful layers, not experienced with wavy/curly hair. I was specific when I made the appt. I needed someone with experience, clearly did not get it. Oak View-- she cut way too short, not the length that we had discussed.

I have been going to Garbo's at Regency for about 2 years now. I found my girl, Jessica, at a Babies R Us and thought she had the most beautiful hair! I asked where she get's it done and she said she works at Garbos. So she has been my stylist since! I love her! So much in fact that I have since moved to California and make trips back to Omaha every two months and make sure I get it to see her while I'm there! I let NO ONE else get their paws on my locks!

Garbo's in Regency ROCKS! I have been a client for several years and recently my stylist relocated to the east coast. I was referred to Chaz, a delightful woman who made me feel that i was in good hands from the very start. And what i loved about that first experience with her was that she "listened" to me. I don't even think i realized that i was looking for a new look, but she seemed to "hear" that as we spoke. She took the time to ask me several questions and although i was scheduled only for a cut that day, she suggested a simple color plan to accentuate the cut, too, and the end result was fabulous. Something i never would've come up with on my own. She and the entire staff were professional, timely, and the owner even stopped by and welcomed me back. After my stylist moved away i was considering trying another salon, but this experience is why i have and always will be one of their biggest fans. Thank you GARBO'S!!

receptionist looks down her nose at you if she
thinks you are not their type of clientel.
I was revisiting their salon after a long time away,
and had been ill,so my hair hadn't been cut for several months.
The guy they assigned me too didn't know how to
cut hair,he only knew what he knew..not a style
that I wanted..so he REFUSED to cut my hair siting
that my hair hadn't been styled for awhile.
(why do you think I am here dufus?)

I had the unfortunate experience of going to Lindsay at Garbos in Regency for a wedding updo. I was 20 mins late much to my dismay--apologized for being late and was scolded by the rude girl at the front desk and then scolded again by Lindsay the stylist. She told me she would "see what she could do" and went on how late I was in a completely rude snotty tone. She pushed out an ugly style that I could get at any cheap salon and it took her all of 20 minutes--I was the first person done from our party. She charged me 55 dollars and was rude the entire time. The kicker is--I tried calling them on my way to tell them I would be a little late and the receptionist was too inexperienced to know how to take the message. Get over yourself Garbos-- you are NOT fabulous!!!

I emailed a complaint to the salon but never heard back. I had a bad eyebrow wax. I was in and out within 5 minutes. There were hairs and wax left on my brows after the treatment. The next day I notice a red mark on one of my brow from the bad wax job. Never again!

If you are a brown woman, or a woman of color, I would not go to Garbo's. I had a bad experience at their Harrison St. location in which I was informed by a woman I later found out was the co-owner Celine that I could only have dark hair because I have dark eyes. I was trying to get my level 2 hair warmed up a bit with some caramel highlights, which I know is possible since I've done it before without problems or attitude, but this woman berated me in front of everyone for not accepting that I need to have black hair since I have dark brown eyes. How asinine! I told her I wanted to lighten up my look a little bit and she responded "Why?! You have dark eyes!" I noticed her obviously brunette hair was highlighted blondish to within an inch of its life, so I guess I can't lighten my hair because I'm BROWN. Roxanne at regency was no help, she said she trusts her partner, gave me the old excuse of I must have misunderstood! That Celine was so awful that the girl doing my hair apologized to me for her after she walked away. So NO MORE GARBO'S FOR ME EVER!

I moved to Omaha about 2 years ago and ever since then I have tried several different hair salons, I was satisfied with some but never blown away by them. Then a friend told be to try Garbo's I did and they were very friendly and did a awesome job. I have since became a regular. The prices are decent I have paid less but I have also paid more. The hairstylest I go to is so nice and I love the way see cuts my hair that I make sure I give a nice tip everytime I go there, which is about every 3 weeks

Although Garbos does a good job with their haircuts, they are kind of pricey and have a LOT of attitude. It seemed to me that the stylists there are very self-satisfied, and if you don't want to accept their recommendations for your haircut, they don't want to spend the time on you. I have heard some rave reviews for Garbo's which is why I tried it, but I won't go back.
