From Our Editors
Vip G1 offers all things pampering, from hairdressing services to mani-pedis and massages. Eyelash extensions, make-up and waxing are also on the menu of treatments, alongside spray tanning for those who want to have their skin sun-kissed. The salon's team of beauticians make every endeavour to tailor the treatments to clients' individual needs and to create a relaxed atmosphere on site.
Had an appointment for 10am at the Dixon street location, but when I arrived, the shop was completely closed (even though it was supposed to be open at 9am). Called to ask what was going on and was told to go to the Duke street location (across town). Had to take a cab there as I had to be somewhere in a few hours and couldn't afford to wait around.
When I arrived, the staff were very nice, but there was no explanation why the other salon was closed and it soon became obvious they were very understaffed. It took 30 min to start the initial tint, then almost an hour and a half to get it washed out as people kept arriving who had appointments.
The tint and cut were really well done though and the staff were very friendly and sweet. They could use a lot more support.
Have no idea why Dixon street was accepting appointments if they were going to be closed. Passed by there the next day and it was closed as well.
Overall, this was a really stressful experience as I really couldn't afford for a tint and cut to take 3 hours, and had to take two cabs that I didn't want to spend money on because of the time and location inconvenience. If I had known Dixon street was closed, I would have done the initial booking at Duke and avoided all this mess. But, I would recommend the Duke street salon as the staff are very good and I am very happy with the cut and colour.
Happy With My Hair, Nice Staff, Nice Place.
Very good service and pleased with the staff.. slight issue as Groupon booking was not forwarded to Vip G1 and I had to wait 40 mins
