I am on your website and it would be nice if you had a list of what services you offer. The 1 star is for your website.

I was overcharged for the monthly special. It apears that the staff is not aware of the special offers that the salon provides. This was my second time I had my eyebrows waxed/tinted. After getting home, I realized the overcharge and on closer inspection of my brows, noticed that one of my brows looked to have a "bald" spot! I had a different asthetician the second visit. I may need to find a new salon. The first time was a better job - sorry!

My first ever brazilian wax and i couldn't have been happier with the whole experience. Amanda was AWESOME and made me feel super comfortable. Everything came out great and I know that I will be back to see her again in about 3 weeks to do it all over again.

Booked a email special on a Saturday online. I got a call asking to reschedule as the wax special was only good for through Friday. After rearranging my schedule I received another email showing the special extended until Saturday. It would have been nice had managent coordinated with those in touch with scheduling appointments. I had a 10:00 A.M. When the salon opens only to have someone slide I front of me with NO appointment. I asked the not so friendly front desk and she said it was because the hard wax was not heated just yet. If your doors open at 10:00 the wax should be prepared properly to accodate the appointment time. During my bikini wax the waxer took her dry rubber gloves and pulled down on my skin! This caused SO MUCH pain, on top of the already painful wax. I unexpectedly yelled out and moved, it hurt so much.

I have always had good experiences at the Hive until this one.

The Hive Salon & Spa replied:

Hi Kelli.

I am so sorry to hear about you experience and you are absolutely right the wax should have defenetly been heated and NO ONE should have ever gone in front of you. I will speak with the girls and would love to offer you a complementary Brazilian or facail. Thank you for making us awhear of your situation and it will be addressed and corrected.

Christina has been advising me on color, cut and other services to enhance my hair and overall appearance for approximately four years. She really focuses on my personal needs, and makes suggestions based on what will work with my life style and age. I highly recommend Christina because she cares about her clients and it shows by the number of people who have stayed with her over the years.

You don't need my life story, but let it suffice to say that I walked in seriously needing a) a haircut, b) color and c) to feel better about life in general. I got all three...5 stars.

Christina is a true artist...she listened to me, studied my face shape and allowed my at-home color needed some serious help...I loved it. She was spot-on.

For 10 years I have been looking for someone who can cut my hair (how hard is a layered bob?) and finally I found her!!! The compliments I have been getting on both cut and color are off the charts. The bonus? We had so much fun!

Brava Christina...and thanks. I needed that ;-)
