WARNING... LONG! I must say that I never had a problem with Aida's Spa (I used to get simple blonde highlights from her and never had a problem) until recently, I had a big occasion to go to and I wanted everything to be perfect (my college graduation). I went in for a full head of blonde highlights, I showed her pictures of the cut I wanted as well as the color. The color was mainly blonde highlights with a lot of dimension. I told her I wanted a couple, literally one or two chunks of red on the top in the front sort of in the layers around my face, just to give it a splash of color. Not only did I get a red that doesn't match with my skin, it didn't match with the rest of my hair color either. And the red out weighed the blonde. OPPOSITE OF WHAT I ASKED. There is completely more red in my hair than blonde. And at first she told me she might not be able to get the blonde because of the color I had prior, but she managed to get the blonde, however, you cannot see it bcuz its underneath....isn't highlights supposed to be where the sun hits your hair anyway? Ok let's get to the cut, I showed her the cut I wanted numerous times. She assured me that she was going to give me exactly what I want. On top of that, she refused to blowout my hair at the end. She said she was too tired, her wrists hurt but that she wasn't gonna charge me for the blow out. Ummm doesn't that usually come with a wash? especially if your getting color? She completely took advantage of the fact that I trusted her with the price bcuz I've gone to her in the past, however she charged me $240 for the job and I didn't get anything I wanted! My graduation , to me, was ruined because I felt self conscious about my hair the entire time. I kept the cap on to hide the stripes that look like the American flag on top of my head! I called her today furious demanding my money back or to meet me half way and she said she will fix it by covering ALL of that red with the brown. So basically I paid all that money too get brown (which s my natural color) and a few blonde and YELLOW pieces. The reason she can't give me more blonde is because red is very hard to get out of the hair. So I'm stuck. I feel completely taken advantage of and helpless over the matter. I hate my hair and I'm gonna have to wait for the red to grow out befor I can get what I want. I will keep u updated when and if I go to her to have her try to fix it. Although, everyone I know told me to RUN AS FAR AS I CAN FROM HER! instead of having her fix it!!
Great & Professional – I went in for a color correction after a home dyed job turned into a disaster. Aida was great. She listened, & assured me. She even took the time, to show me her personal working album ,with all the color & cuts she has done (to make me feel more at ease). My hair come out healthy & beautiful. She definitely listens & knows exactly what she is doing. The staff is very courteous & professional. Highly recommend.
Caring owner, top-notch customer service, and a beautiful space – I have gone to Aida's four times now for highlights, and have always left with great color and a smile on my face. Aida has bent over backwards to accommodate me on very short notice despite being very busy, and has listened to what I wanted and given helpful suggestions. I have been to many of the salons in Bay Ridge, and none of them can offer the same beautiful results and enthusiastic hospitality for such reasonable prices.
Glad to have found Aida!! – I've known Aida since she used to work at another salon in Park Slope, but when I found out she had opened her own salon in Bay Ridge, I was so happy! Not only was it convenient, but I knew the service there would be phenomenal; and it was! The salon is beautiful and neat, and I received great personalized service from Aida. Its so hard to find someone who does your hair the way you want it, and Aida listened to what I wanted, and then some. I received so many compliments that night, and the next day as well! I'm going there whenever I need my hair done, and since her salon offers other services, I will be taking advantage of those as well. Thanks, Aida!
