Then Alex left and I bounced around the salon to a couple of stylist and I found Eva. She did good hair, nothing like Alex (or Katherine!) but she was consistent and she listened to what I wanted so I kept going to her. Next Eva left the salon and I started the process of bouncing again because I like Dolce, a lot, my kids even LOVE Dolce! They think Dolce is the only salon/spa that people can go do. You know how kids get their loyalties lined out and it's permanently ingrained in them, that's Dolce for my kids! I like the people, I like the welcoming feeling, and there are a lot of talented stylist there, but after their Groupon I think I'm salon shopping!
Their facebook page has been commenting about an upcoming groupon and I have been anxiously waiting! Imagine my excitement when the groupon popped up Sunday!
- A haircut (up to a $45 value)
- A deep-conditioning treatment (a $45 value)
- Partial highlights (up to an $85 value)
All for one low price of $65! Yahoo!
We were on our way to church and I was giddy! I said to Keith "ewww...I have to read the fine print to see how many of these I can buy!" So, I did and that's when I saw it...
"New clients only"
My heart sank!
I hate when companies offer promotions for "new clients only" and throw their old loyal clients away. When they do customer appreciation days, they aren't for "existing clients only" they are for anyone. New clients always welcome, old clients are already sucked in so who cares.
AT&T Uverse has the best customer service in this area of anyone I've ever seen! Say what you will about AT&T, but if you call them with a promotion they are running they will give it to you. They don't care if you're a new customer or if you've been with them for 100 years! All you have to do is call and ask for the promotion and they give it to you. I do with they'd just automatically apply promotions, but I guess it's not too much to ask that I contribute a little too!
So, as much as I love Dolce, I'm considering going elsewhere because I find this so offensive. I will say, they are one of the nicest salons (that I've gone to) in Carmel and they do great hair. I will still recommend them to anyone who asks, I'm just really irritated and a little hurt!
Lastly...I just saw on Regis and Kelly that short hair is back in style but while watching beautiful Emma Watson being interviewed I can truly say...just because something is in style doesn't mean it looks good on you! Ugh! She looks like a very feminine boy!
