Lansing >Lockworx... the Aveda Salon
Thought I was back in Detroit. I was skeptical. I read the reviews, I talked to good looking heads of hair that I saw in town, but I still didn't believe that a local salon would be as good as my salon in the Detroit area. I downloaded the citysearch promo, crossed my fingers and tossed my head in to get the WORXS . This place was super busy, the music was cool and the staff dressed for success! This wasn't the jeans and bad makeup salons that dot the landscape of Lansing. When my service was done I thought it looked very European, my color was fun and my cut wasn't my mom's. After that, I had one of the best makeup girls I've ever seen fix my washed off face. (Kate?) The next day I sent my girl friend in and she loved it too.
Gr8 time gr8 place. been to quite a few salons in bigger cities, this one makes me forget i live in this joke town. cool staff, great hair, great products. i would recommend everyone to try this salon. jg
My best salon "experience" yet!. I made an appointment and didn't mentioned that I was going to write a review about this salon. My first impression was the wonderful smell that greeted me when I came in their strangely located front door. It did not smell of chemicals as most salons do. I was quickly and pleasantly acknowledged by the receptionist. Next, I was offered some tea or water. I did have to ask her name. At this time Lynn directed me to a small changing room to put a wrap over my clothing. Almost immediately, my stylist greeted me with a smile and her name. Andrea had me follow her back to her chair. This was great, most places wash your hair first then go to their chair. Andrea asked a few questions and did something others fail to do, she listened. Following a lovely neck and shoulder massage, she shampooed my hair. She worked on my hair for what seemed like a long time, not too long yet I didn't feel rushed. Her conversation was pleasant and made me realize she wasn't going to talk about me when I left, either. The room had a great vibe to it and the girls obviously got along well and liked working together, which you don't see at many salons in the Lansing area. After Andrea completed a beautiful style on my not so easy to style hair, she went over what she used and gave me a couple of well thought out "marketing" gift-certificates, and a mint! When I started to exit the cut area, something strange but extremely cool happened, everyone in the room focused their attention on me and said "goodbye"! I looked around, but is was me they were talking to. At this time I was offered and accepted a make-up refresher from a very knowledgeable young make-up artist. When I paid I was given a gift for new clients which told me they really cared and wanted my continued business. Oddly, at no time did I feel that I was pressured, or for that matter, like I was even in Lansing. A few days later I received a follow-up call to see how my "experience" was. I told her what I'm telling you, it was GREAT!
Best color salon and great customer service and entertainment a fun and professionial place to have your hair done. I found this place, and I won't go anywhere else. I found over the years that stylist move around. I'm tired of chasing stylists that are chasing a buck. This salon makes me feel special. The first time I was in many of them said hi and all of them good-bye! I feel that if my stylist leaves, there is another one that will be just as good or better in a different way. One time my stylist was a little late( alittle over 15 minutes) at about fifteen minutes, the girl at the desk came out and presented me with a gift certificat to say they were sorry and aware that I waited. While I was waiting, I received a free hand massage! I have now been going there for several years, and although the stylist I used to see moved to some dumpy salon with nothing to offer but my haircut, I keep going because I can tell they care. The owner is a little older(40 something) buut he seems like he really cares about his place and me. He knows my name! I once had a product I did not like, they took it back with out making me feel bad. I will go there until I move or get to old and don't have any hair! Shelly
