I've had lash extensions a few times, the final product is good and the only reason i go back but the staff are terrible- rude, unprofessional, talk to each other in a different language the entire time and walk in and out of the area while you have to keep your eyes closed and don't know what's happening.
You get what you pay for.. It is hard to communicate what you are after, the result is as to be expected I suppose. I have had 2 pretty average experiences here and won't be going back. Do not recommend asking for a removal either unless you want your acrylics ripped off with a fake nail tip! *cringe*
I recently went to Professionail Albany to get arcrylics on my finger nails and eyelash extensions, so I spent well over $100. Unfortunately, the whole experience was a total waste of money,.
A/ I get acrylics done fairly recently (although not usually at this salon), and the guy that did them here filed them down far too thin, so that within a week and a half, 4 of them had broken/snapped off. I have literally never had a single acrylic snap on the first time getting them done before, but these were almost breaking off daily. I'm not rough on them - I work in a office, so no manual labour or anything. It's a complete waste of money when almost half of them break off shortly after getting them done. The guy also didn't speak enough English to understand the nail shape/length that I asked for.
B/ I don't get lash extensions done on the regular, but have had them 4-5 times in the past of special occasions. I've never had a problem with them before, but ended up with an infected eyelid from these ones shortly after I got them. This was incredibly painful and inconvenient, not to mention rather unattractive. I have no trust in their hygiene practices after this horrible experience... The girl who did my lashes also managed to glue both of my eyes closed so that I couldn't open them without her first removing the glue. Which was painful.
C/ Speaking of hygiene - I noticed that they still shave the skin off your feet with a razor blade here when you have a pedicure. When I went to the other salon in Westfield Albany to get my broken nails re-done, this salon had a sign up saying it is now illegal for salons to shave the skin off your feet, for health and safety reasons. But Professionail Albany still do it... Go figure.
