Until recently I have been going to this salon for my haircuts. I had been more than happy with my hairstylist, but found the parking a nightmare and the attitude of some staff to be obnoxious and cliquey, especially that of the owners. I found it worth tolerating, as my hairdresser was great, and I always felt like a million bucks with my new coif. I found out a month ago that my stylist put in her two-week notice, and was asked to leave on the spot. As I do not know the details behind this, all I can go on is my experience with this employee: she is nothing but nice and positive, and I do not believe for a second she would do this place dirty and/or leave them high and dry. Based on the fact that the salon played dumb as to her new place of employment (of which she did tell them, as I would later find out) and went so far as to offer a discount if I would continue to frequent them, I can surmise it is the owners who were acting poorly. Utopia my derriere!
This office offers anything from minor facials to liposuction. I have seen two of the aestheticians for both microdermabrasion and micropeel. Both aestheticians are knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. I leave the office each time with sample face lotions and creams, and more insight as to how to properly care for my skin. The front desk staff is always friendly, helpful, and accommodating.
My hairstylist left her old haunt and has set up shop at Salon 231. I was hesitant to make the move, as most places in Cherry Creek can be more than a bit uppity, but I am happy for the experience. The salon is located on a second story, close to the sky lights that give it a nice, natural effect. There are many plants hanging about, and it is decorated with Picasso prints and warm earth-toned furniture. There did not seem to be a dress code, as the staff were not clad in all black, and their attitude reflected such; the receptionist and all other stylists, etc I encountered were friendly and seemed to enjoy what they were doing.
The two times I stepped foot in this salon, I was treated with less than professional behavior. The attitude of the four staff members I encountered was conceited and apathetic. The first time I went to check out the place, the two gals who were present did not do much to encourage me to make an appointment: they acted bored and put out that I was inquiring about prices for a trim; they seemed more intereseted in their coffee break than clientele. The next attempt I made, I entered the salon, and stood directly in front of two employees for about 30 seconds before I realized that I would have to make the first move for them to acknowledge me. When one of the two did say hello, she recommended the other gal be the one to cut my hair, but I wondered how qualified she was, if she did not even have the know-how to greet me, let alone make eye contact. They will not get a third chance to disappoint me!
