Warning on ripoffs on manicures and pedicures: Get pricing in advance

This is advice to all those women (and men) who have manicures and pedicures. Be advised! Last Saturday I had a pedicure and my daughter had both a manicure and pedicure here in Fayetteville (and her eyebrows waxed).

The salon employees did not ask me what I wanted, so they did a lot of massaging and scrubbing on both of us.

When I went to pay the bill it was outrageous: $75. It was not at all the prices that were advertised on a large sign posted at the front of the store.

I planned to put a tip in the check so they said I had to make the check out to “cash.” They also told me I had to write two checks because they couldn’t take a check over $50 and both had to be made out to “cash.”

This whole experience has made me very angry. Are they cheating by not asking customers ahead of time what type of “spa” treatment they want? Then why did I have to make the check out to “cash”? They are very aggressive in asking customers for excessive services.

I have learned my lesson to pay exactly prices as stated and not be taken advantage of again.
