Yesterday, I arrived at Pharaoh's for my regular appointment after missing (3) due to the cold - bad for my car and me!
Needless to say, I was a mess from lack of care - what might have looked like another foible turned into a blessing - the cappuccino machine was not working - but, some chamomile tea did the trick to take the edge off of a long ride.
I have to say I am blessed beyond belief by the Pharaoh's employees - from the receptionists to the spa to hair care - and convos in between with customers and others - it is always a pleasure to be in this caring environment.
Three receptionists got me through cancellations and rescheduling - Laura - Kristin - and Jessica - you girls are the best partners for unraveling and understanding my predicament - Thank You so much - you are such great ladies!
Off to the spa - and my relaxation treatment with Marie - who has been a long time friend and caretaker - no matter how disheveled I arrive at 'Marie's Place' - I leave all shiny and new - we also have great conversations - and -
thanks to Marie - I have beautiful hands, feet, and legs - what a treat - one to which I look forward every month!
I wasn't planning on seeing my hairdresser, Vincenza, until Saturday - it was the best we could do - unfortunately, for a third time - the weather was not cooperating - a foot of snow on Saturday - what - how could that happen - it was unusually warm finally - and now - we are going to get dumped on again - quick thinking - go see Vincenza - she can help - another great friend and hairdresser - she squeezed me in - even though her schedule was full - her timing is impeccable - and although I did not get a styling - I got what I needed in a pinch - and I was good to go!
That, however, was not the end of my experience - I had missed the Christmas and New Year appointments - and - of course, my Christmas present to me - a new hair dryer - I wanted to talk to Vincenza about my choices between two recommended dryers - as usual - Vincenza only wants the best for me - and she ends up wanting one for herself, too - we are just in sync and work together to come to resolutions for a number of problems and/or situations.
Another great thing about Vincenza is her ability to determine what looks good on you (me) - she just knows - she will try different products and/or combinations until she gets to the one that works best for you. She instinctively knows what you like - whether or not you have a crazy side - or maybe, you are just a straight shooter - no frills kind of person - I trust her experience and knowledge - and it is a blessing - since I don't have to worry - if it doesn't work - she will fix it - and make it work for you - rarely, have I had a hairdresser who works hard to please me - too many get carried away with their own ideas - and you leave unhappy with their choice - not yours. Not with Vincenza!
When we leave Pharaoh's, we are a walking advertisements for Pharaoh's. We cannot fake happy - and the reaction of those around us cannot be faked, either - we instinctively know we don't look good - and so do they. However, I have never had that problem - I get compliments and praise - and am asked where I go -
I happily tell them - PHARAOH'S HAIRUM SALON and SPA! They are just the BEST Salon and Spa in Rochester!
Thank You, Laura, Kristin, Jessica, Marie, and Vincenza for making my time at Pharaoh's a pleasurable one!
God Bless You All Real Good!
