Shopping >Saks Fifth Avenue
A New York pioneer ventures across the country with designer standards..
Saks is the retail hub for classics like Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Ralph Lauren, Prada and Badgley Mischka. This department store gets props for its petite and Salon Z (sizes 14-24) women's collections, as well as great selection for the little ones. Each department is a boutique to itself, boasting well-trained clerks who not only sell the good life--they set the example.
Great staff and service.
So I was out shopping with my gal at Saks and she was giving me a hard time about my hair because we were meeting her family for dinner later and I was due for a cut. She sends me into the salon to get a quick trim while she finished up her shopping. I admit I was a bit nervous b/c I am used to the neighborhood barber shop and I had never been to a salon before. But the staff there made me feel right at home. Right after I was told I would have to wait a few min., the man behind the counter offered me a cup of coffee while I waited. And this is not like freeze dried coffee that?s been sitting around all day, but a freshly brewed cup of gourmet coffee just for me.
When the stylist was ready she escorted me on back to her station. I told her what my plans were later and that I wanted to make a good first impression with her family. Now I could tell by this girls hairdo that she had a good and modern sense of style, so I asked her what she thought would be a good cut for my lifestyle b/c I have no creativity when it comes to style. Well after she washed and cut my hair she explained to me how I can create a more stylish look with some texture cream for that messy look and a more conservative look with a it little bit of hair gel and combing a little different. So I bought some texture cream for home and when I left I was so refreshed and confident. I felt completely the opposite from when I walked in.
I never got such great service and advice from my neighborhood shop. I am so glad that I listened to my gal and went into the salon that day. And of course she loved my new look and thing went really well at dinner with her folks that night. I would recommend this place for everyone; a great staff really does make a difference. Thank you.
Most Accommodating Salon!!. I went to the Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue as a first time customer, I have to say, I was extremely nervous...I had an appointment set up for a haircut and color, I almost backed out at the last minute, but my husband convinced me that the stylist knew what she was doing so I stayed. I had been salon hopping and the past three haircuts that I got were not at all what I wanted. When I got the highlites, they looked like they had already been grown out and I was upset that all three times, I had spent so much money for something I hated. At Saks Fifth Avenue, the hairstylist was extremely patient with me. By the time, I was done, I had a cut that I loved (and could manage at home), hilites that were right at my scalp, and a husband that couldn't wait to take me out! I discovered threading for the first time at the salon, who knew you could remove hair that way!? I also got the best pedicure I've ever had. I have never seen anyone scrub my feet the way the nail tech at Saks did. After I had the works done at the Salon, the receptionist walked me over to the cosmetics department to have my makeup done. I only wish that I had found that Salon sooner. I had such a great experience that I have already been back a couple of times. Even the friends that I have sent over to the salon have been thrilled. I would definitely recommend this Salon to anyone whether they want a trim or a complete makeover!!
