Came here for a manicure/pedicure. Student and staff are friendly but its been a week and my manicure is already peeled off on most of my nails. I felt more attention could be given to cleaning skin and cuticle around nail as done at other salons. Manicure was just shaping and color. I have been to several cosmetology schools so I understand these are students. We conversed and she was very nice but more attention to detail is needed. It looks like I did the manicure myself at home.

If you don't want to be disappointed don't go to this place, maybe just for hydration or maybe to trim the ends of your hair, no more than that. Teachers do not pay attention while students are working. I didn't ask for an asymmetrical cut and that's what I received on two completely different sides. I'm glad my hair grows fast.

Got a gel manicure here. The first attempt came out extremely clumpy and she attempted a second time. The second time came out tolerable, but still uneven and not clean. I understand these are students, but still expected a semi-professional result. It looks like a I gave myself a manicure. Gave 2 stars instead of 1 because of the student's effort in trying a second time and she was very nice to talk to.

Beware of their GROUPONS for NAIL SERVICES .... I absolutely cannot stand companies who deceive people into buying their products .... called them and they only can book appts 3 days a week, AFTER 5:15pm‼️ No where on the Groupon does it forewarn people about this horrible timeframe. Very deceptive.

I purchased a groupon for a facial prior to COVID. I had a friend attend their school throughout the pandemic and i was told and SHOWN pictures of how disgusting the facility is and that they never have it cleaned. I called and told a worker that i do not want to come in when their location has not been cleaned at all. She told me to go to groupon to get my refund, but didn’t seem to care that i was bothered by the complete lack of cleanliness. I told her maybe they should address the cleaning situation and all she had to say to that was okay thank you. That is so disgusting. I can’t even tell you how many horror stories I heard from students who attended this school. If i were you I’d take my money elsewhere.

I just absolutely love this place! Very clean and very professional. Very friendly and inviting too. I had my first ever mani/pedi here and it was wonderful! I was very satisfied and impressed with Jordan. She took her time and did an amazing job. She even helped me pick out the colors. She was friendly and very sweet. As always, I will be returning for more services.

Keep in mind that these are students practicing. It is not a professional salon. The facials are nice, but they repeatedly use the same product. Hair color was terrible,hair cut even w the instructor was awful. They do not have any tools to perform professional services. If u just wanna be a guinea pig go for it!

I just had my first facial by Kaitlin (Kate) and it. Was. Great. Get her while she’s in school. Seriously. Perfect amount of everything. She definitely makes sure you have a great experience and encourages you to let her know when you don’t like something or would like more. Also gave a wonderful hand and arm massage while I had a mask on. Great person to get for a first facial at this facility.

Megan gave me a facial tonight and it was absolutely amazing. It was one of the best facials I’ve ever received, so I was shocked to learn it was only her third facial! I’ve also had a gel manicure and a number of root touch ups here. They really are preparing their students for salon life, and all of the students display great guest handling skills. I love this place!

Took my daughter here today to get a haircut. Drove 45 minutes in 100 degree heat (in my old car with no a/c). A lady came out and took my daughter's temperature as well as mine & sent us away saying we were too warm. The same thing happened to us at the dentist yesterday. We had to wait in our car in the parking lot for 30 minutes so by the time we went in, we were sweating. The dentist's office took our temperatures 3 times, but it did go down. No covid-19 here, The lady at Elevate Salon didn't seem patient or nice! She just told us to go! Like I'd risk driving for 45 minutes to be turned away again. Reviews on this place are mostly bad anyway. I should've known! We won't be going back!

Had a great experience getting my hair cut with Bianca and have now gone back multiple times. She really shows a big interest and makes me proud as a student how well she’s doing. I thank Elevate Salon Institute for their clean, modern environment and their great skills on training for their students. Definitely will let others know about this school and of course Bianca.

Everyone here is so nice and friendly! Had the best first pedicure and loved that the girl and I had a good conversation the whole time! She got me interested in actually becoming a student here! Coming here is definitely better than most salons as everyone is passionate about learning the ways of cosmetology instead of people in regular salons rushing to get you done so they can get paid and not care about the job they did. (I’m specifically talking about nail salons, most hair salons are actually good and they care.) Definitely coming here again!!!

After going through all the reviews, I thought I will give my share.. Well I was doing my hair cut after 2 yrs. and had very high expectations. But its all ruined :( I was assigned a student and I should agree she is very detail about doing what she want to do but major problem was they were not telling me what they are doing to my hair!!! She had an instructor observing over and they kept discussing on what is happening and what they are doing and what more needs to be done but I was the confused one who gave the hair and sat there wondering whats going on. I had a Group on coupon for Haircut package worth $49 and all I understand is they CANNOT do Balayage on my hair which takes so long to do So decided to go with just highlights and they did a bleach foil pack.. Guess what, I am charged additional $15 for the highlights :| Then the worse part was with haircut, What I showed and what I got was completely different. It took a good 5 and half hrs (10-3:30PM) to perform this and by this time I am fed up and want to get out of the salon.. I can sure tell its the same with the student, She is like when the hell will you leave..LOL.. But I couldnt complain because she is a student and I dont knw the consequences if I am upset there. SO I ended up paying a $20 TIP !!! But with my experience, They better discuss what they are planning to do and be detailed about each phase which unfortunately didnt happen in my case.I am never going back.. NO....

All I wanted was a simple french braid so I figured I would give this place a try. This was my first visit so I was hoping for a good experience, but unfortunately it did not work out. They were 15 minutes lately taking me for my appointment. The receptionist did come over and say they were waiting for an educator to be available so since they acknowledged my wait I wasn't too bothered by that part. Stylist brought me over and told me she would be doing my french braid, but that she didn't know how. I showed her a picture of one and figured since this is a school someone would show her how to do it. I figured wrong. It took forever to get an educator over there. I also showed her the picture so she tells the stylist to tease the top of my hair, pin it up, and then just braid it. Clearly the educator didn't know how to do the braid either, but didn't want to admit that to the stylist. They start filling my hair with product and teasing it up. Which is not at all what I wanted. Even a different stylist watching told me to show them the picture again, because she knew that wasn't what I wanted. Finally a second educator comes over and I show her the picture too. This person did actually know how to french braid so she quickly showed the stylist. I could tell she was showing her correctly so at this point I felt better about the situation. The second educator was too busy to spend enough time with the stylist and she still didn't understand, but was left to do the style on her own. She admitted to me she didn't know what to do, but would make my hair look good. She reverted back to what the first educator had shown her. All she did was tease my hair, pull it back, and do a regular braid. I assumed an educator would check her work before I was finished and tell her this was wrong, but no one did. At this point I had been there well over an hour for something that should have taken 15 minutes and I really needed to go. It did not look good and I wasn't satisfied, but I couldn't stay there any longer. I don't fault the stylist that much as she is still learning. I put more of the blame on the school as she did not seem to be able to get the support she needed. I do regret not being more honest with the stylist and telling her that was not a french braid and I didn't like it as she would have learned more that way, but I was way too irritated at this point. My hair would have looked better had I stayed home and done it myself. I do not think I would try this place again. I will say there were other customers in there at the time that were happy with their services. One girl got her hair colored and it looked really good. If you are lucky enough to get a stylist that knows how to do what you want then it is probably fine, but I won't chance it again. There clearly were not enough educators there to give the needed support to the stylists.

I questioned wether or not I wanted to come in to this particular salon. Considering all services are performed by students i wanted to make sure of my decision. Salon is beautiful. But words can not explain how unbelievable the service was. Beginning to end. Safa is unbelievable. Her hands are magical and her energy is so calming and positive and somewhat addicting. I am beyond grateful for everything.Thank you Elevate Salon!

I got my hair cut and got highlights in it with a walk-in, and that experience as well as the end result were gorgeous. The second time I went in, however, I had an appt scheduled for hair and makeup for an event. The student I was scheduled with never showed up, so I didn’t sit down till almost half an hour past my appointment time. The student who curled my hair didn’t do a very good job. My hair looked greasy and my curls were gone an hour after because the hairspray he used was greasy and not strong enough. So I went home and fixed my crooked eyeliner myself and got my professional photos done praying the last of my curls would hold up. I was too shy to speak up at the time because I figured they were students and to cut them some slack, which is mg bad, but I also figured the instructor would say something about the end result. It definitely wasn’t worth the $50 I ended up spending. I think next time I’ll do my makeup and curls myself and I’d advise you to do the same, as the quality is about the same.

Kayla M. was super nice and did a great job dealing with my indecisiveness. She wasn’t afraid to ask a teacher if she wasn’t sure about something which was great! I’d rather someone admit their faults. I would highly recommend Kayla. ???? Also, her teacher, Amanda, was nice as well. I would recommend Elevate Salon, great prices and people. ????

Wasn’t impressed. Went in for a facial, student didn’t talk to me at all, tell me what I would be getting, ask me any kind of question. Facial area is like a hospital room, wasn’t relaxing. To top it off, the steam ended up spitting out boiling hot water on my face, still in pain. Definitely will not be back.

The one star the previous writer gave this place was spot on. I had an appointment for early on a Saturday - and after waiting 15 minutes.....Some extremely rude person came and told me the student that was to cut my hair didn't show up and they had no other openings for the day and couldn't do anything for me. It is worth noting the place was completely empty. Don't waste your time dealing with this place at all. Plenty of other reputable Salons in the area.

I never leave bad reviews but this place is so unprofessional. Rescheduled me three times while still calling me every day to make sure I was coming?? Trying to make appt is too hard because they do not answer the phone. Lastly the student who was suppose to do my nails didn’t even show up. No wonder the place is so cheap. Save your time and go somewhere else.

Elevate Salon Institute has a beautiful, clean campus with students that are very energetic, positive, and wanting to learn. The staff is lovely and polite and always nearby to assist or answer questions when necessary. They use all professional products you would find in a salon and overall the atmosphere is very professional- sometimes its easy to forget this is a school!

If the students wernt so nice I wouldn't have even given two stars they are so unprepared it's sad they don't have the proper equipment or knowledge to be taking money from people for the services not only did the first tech have absolutely no experience painting nails the second when I had to go back to get them fixed didn't even know how to remove the polish properly resulting in file burn on all of my fingers she filed the polish off instead of using a solution both students came right out and said they have no experience so I don't hold them accountable the instructors need to be doing some actual instructing I have been to many beauty schools for various services which are usually in the same running as a standard salon this place shouldn't be open to the public

I asked for a haircut with bangs, hair colored blonde and eyebrows waxed. The color came first. I knew going in that this is a school. I showed a couple of pictures and let them do their thing. I ended up with a orange-red bayolage that fried my ends.I wanted full color! The girl that was doing my hair, this was her last day. She was graduating into the real world. She didn’t know how to cut bangs so her teacher had to do it and she screwed it up too! The girl that did my eyebrows was nervous but did a great job! The receptionist couldn’t get my name right to save her life not even on the paperwork they have you sign. Overall, skip this place and buy a Groupon for a real salon. I did and my hair is exactly what I wanted now. Fay at Luxeva salon fixed my hair beautifully!

The customer service, cleanliness, and price all deserve 5 stars! I was nervous, being that it was a beauty school, but the only difference between here and your local nail salon was that it took a little bit longer than usual because she paid attention to detail, and my mani and pedi turned out great! Not to mention good conversation, a generous nature and sincere concern about how i was feeling, and how i was liking my nails, which made me feel comfortable. Thank you so much, Elevate!
