I've been getting my hair cut here for over a year and always look great when I come out. I've had a few pedicures and once I could even afford a whole day (facial, massage, finger nails, pedicure and massage). Every thing was wonderful. Talented and friendly employees. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Upon arrial to the "praised" Colosseum, I was greeted by the receptionist. She seemed very professional. However, as I proceeded to the area to get my hair cut and styled, I overheard some very inappropriate conversation. One stylist in particular named Tracy was very loud and obnoxious. I was not pleased with the service and I felt as if I was being rushed out the door in order to get to the next customer. I would not revisit this salon.

I visited the Colosseum for a bikini wax. The staff was very friendly and professional and the waxer was fast, which resulted in as painless a procedure as possible. However, the resulting wax job "down there" was not as sculpted or as neat as I was anticipating and the bed was not very clean (there were hairs on it and it was evident it had been used before). In the end, the price wasn't terrible ($35) and I would probably return once more before exploring elsewhere.

My daughter an I went for a spray tan and weren't really satisfied, but when I call ed to discuss this with them, they were more than happy to accommodate us. I find them to be very professional people, who stand behind their services. I will definitely be returning for some pampering!!

I called today to make an appointment and they fit me in 45 min later (I was very excited about this). So I went in and the woman that did my facial was very unprofessional and reeked of cigarette smoke!! This place is extremely overpriced and not worth it at all. A half hour, half-assed facial was $40! For goodness sake when I looked at my face in my car I realized I had the white lotion, she put on, caked all over my face...(so embarrassing). To tell you the truth, this experience wasn't even worth the tip I over payed.

I have been to The Colosseum a few times for a massage and hair cut. Each time I went for a hair appointment the owner herself did my hair and she was 100% personable. She made conversation with me and offered me coffee. I am from New York City so to be frank I have seen better, but the Colloseum is probably the best in Altoona. She salon is nice enough, the best I have seen in Altoona and I did not notice any dirty or outdated facilities. My favorite part...when she flat ironed my hair she blew the heat away so that it did not burn my scalp! No stylist (Yes even in New York) ever did that before. Lori K, in case you were wondering Yes, I am beautiful and the fact that you do not hold yourself in the same regard may be a good indicator of low self esteem. Your low self esteem maybe the true source of your negative experience at The Colosseum.

I dont know what that woman was talking about. I also went to the colosseum for a bikini wax and mine came out fine. The employee's are very kind and know what they are doing. The place is well keeped and very cleanly. The colosseum is best rated in our town as the best salon in the area. I would be very honored to take my dog there. So for any one reading this or looking for a place to go and relax the colosseum is the place to go.

This spa is a trashy excuse for a spa. Maybe I am just used to nicer places, due to travels and going to school in State College (Designer's Denn), but the place's atmosphere was not very nice and the equipment and products sitting in the spa room looked very old and of bad quality.

I went in for a Brazilian bikini wax and they did not use the wax that is supposed to be used for bikini waxes, which is thicker in consistency, a dark blue color, and picks up coarse pubic hair. This wax requires no cloth strips, rather it picks up at the edges and the wax itself is ripped. This wax is actually less painful and irritant to the bikini area. Rather, they attempted to use the wax used for fine hair, such as eyebrows and upper lip.

The worker even admitted that the owner was not willing to pay for the proper wax because it was more expensive after I asked her why they didn't use the wax that most bikini waxes require. The worker was very nice and friendly, but I cannot get over how unkept and dirty the wax and room looked.

Needless to say, I will never return or recommend bikini waxes at the Colosseum.

I've been using this salon and spa's services since before they moved to their incredible new location at 701 Pleasant Valley Boulevard. The owner has been styling my hair for years, and is talented AND professional. I cannot believe that he would EVER say anything to a client such as the ludicrous claim by reviewer "Lori K." The entire staff is top-notch. One has to wonder if the prior review isn't a fabrication by somebody with an axe to grind . . . . .

The owner of this shop is an obnoxious, stuck up excuse for a stylist! I have a sense of humor, so when I went for my appointment on my wedding day, I introduced myself and said that I was "here to be made beautiful". The response I recieved could have ruined my entire wedding (had I allowed it). This man actually said to me "Well, we're not miracle workers". I could have cried right then and there. Thankfully, the stylist working on me showed up and took me to another area of the spa.

Bottom line... unless you are beautiful, you are treated with zero respect at this establishment!

PROS: The did a good color job.
CONS: Over-priced and owner has terrible chairside manner
