After living in NW America for 10 years, I really had a hard time finding a good hair stylist. I was already spoiled with my hair stylist in my home country and I was very disappointed almost with every appointment that I had in the last 10 years. Recently we made our final decision to move back to my country to be able to spend more time with family and friends. But the second most important factor was my hair stylist for this big move. After spending 5 months there, we had to visit Iowa for a month that I had no idea where to go for my hair color and blow out.... :( Fortunately, I found Salon Spa W. Thanks to Yelp! This was a one of a kind experience for me! They are wonderful! The customer service is great! They make you feel like you are home. The atmosphere is exactly what it should be in a salon. Rian did my express mani and express pedi and she did a wonderful job! My hair color turned out great! And most importantly, my blow out was awesome! I didn't end up getting out of the salon with a puffy, frizzy hair like I end up many many times in the last 10 years. I have curly, thick hair which is not easy to straighten. Carin used a hair brush instead of a flat iron and I didn't have to explain very much how I wanted it to be done since I tried hard in the past explaining in detail how I would like them to do it and it didn't work. Carin is a level 5 stylist and she is where she is supposed to be at her career in my opinion. I couldn't find any reviews on straightening on Yelp, so I got lucky on that.
She gave me a complimentary make up after my hair, too. She is wonderful! Everybody knows what they are doing and they are very professional at Salon Spa W!
