Cactus Salon and Day Spa
Commack, NY 11725
I just had a cut/color/glaze and conditioning with Taylor. She was fantastic. Very attentive and accommodating. The style is great and the color is the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend Taylor's services to anyone going to the Cactus Salon in Commack. Thanks Taylor!
I got my gel manicure here on Tuesday. It is Sunday and my gel manicure, supposed to stay on for two weeks, has chipped/peeled in multiple places. Between the rude service and the quickly chipping manicure, I will not be visiting this salon again!
Not one to write bad reviews but felt it was necessary regarding my experience here. I went into the salon with long healthy brunette hair looking to do a balayge and just brighten up my hair a touch. Clearly the woman doing my hair had no idea what she was doing. She over bleached and ruined my hair and left the bleach in for WAY too long. Every worker here is rude and very unprofessional. Will never return here.
Mani Pedi by Danielle was excellent. She is very personable, helpful, professional, and did an excellent job. this was the second time I have seen her and both times I was extremely pleased. She exceeded my expectations.
I redeemed a Mani/Pedi Groupon here. I had to reschedule twice but nevertheless, they took me in anyway..even though i was 30 mins late. Danielle didn't seem too happy but it didn't change the service.she was great, finished within an hour and was very sociable with me. Made the time go by quickly. The salon just didn't have a huge variety of nail polish but it did have a separate room in the back for pedicures thats not seen by the whole salon. Its not bad, but i did expect more.
I like cactus salon I've had appointments there for wash and blow dry even a haircut.But this time I purchased a Groupon for 179.00 for a keratin straightening treatment, wash cut and blow dry.I was very disappointed.One week later when I washed my hair it didn't even look like I had a keratin treatment.The you girl who did my hair was nice but she barely sprayed the treatment on my hair.Her reasoning was it makes to much smoke in the air when she has to blow-dry my hair and she feels you don't need a lot of the treatment on your hair.So I definitely wasted179.00.
Good highlights. Nice staff. Would go again. Loved the color. Took their time with me
Thought I found my permanent Hair salon . Got hair touch up by heather . My timer went off 5 minutes 10 minutes 15 minutes HMM maybe I should go find her. Can you tell me where heather is ? Oh they sent her to the bank ! REALLY ???!! I ask the manager why would you send my stylist to the bank ? I'm sorry Mrs Drinkwater PERIOD ! Have a nice thanksgiving ! Are you serious ?
The best facial I've had in a long time with Christine. She didn't leave the room once, continued to exfoliate and massage during steam and mask, and worked on me very diligently the whole time. Asked if I had any allergies or concerns. Great shoulder and arm massage and did everything you should do for a great facial. Warm towel was fantastic and the spa was clean, updated, and private.
I went there wanting to go lighter with my hair and did not get it. Gigi idk what she did but she left my hair the same as when I walked in the salon I saw no difference. Her hair drying is by far the worst my hair was all frizzed up I asked her to straighten is and she told me no because I already straighten it too much? Like ? It's my hair not yours, do what I want. I just hated my experience there so much. Especially because there was this other girl that got her hair done by one of the other ladies and her hair came out bomb and her blow out was amazing and then there was me with frizzy hair I was pissed off because this place is not cheap. It was 170$ for nothing because my hair turned out exactly the same. I should've gone back to complain but I didn't because I'm not that type of person. I would recommend the salon but wouldn't recommend the girl that did my hair.
I would not even rate this salon 1 star ! Stay away from the lady Danielle . Short stocky itailian lady With dark hair in a bun . She destroyed my hair and over processed it by bleaching over bleach. I would love to see this womens credientials. Does she bot know better or does she like destroting peoples hair . On top of that I was charged almost $300 and walked out of the salon with bold spots and over processed hair. This women also kept texting and making phone calls while doing my hair . So weird! Cactus you need to hire more proffesionals. I will never walk intothis rip off trash salon again.
I purchased an Amazon Local deal for a deep conditioning and blow out for a great price. I figured I'd try out this Cactus after just moving from Plainview and having a poor experience over there. The deep conditioning was great as my hair needed it. Now comes the blowout... Pretty simple, right? Nope. The stylist was friendly although distracted throughout the process while speaking to other stylists but that's not a big deal since I figured I was getting a pretty standard blow out. She was having a hard time blowing out the right side of my hair and had no problem telling me that it was MY thick hair that was being difficult & giving her problems. She said it 4 times! As a result & after the longest blowout of my life (1 hour, 15 minutes) my hair came out pin straight on one side and full of body on the other. I'd like to think this is an isolated incident and that maybe I just got the wrong stylist but my previous experiences w other Cactus salons is telling me otherwise. Perhaps this is why these salons are closing all over Long Island at the rate they are. Amazon Local deal or not, not worth my money again.
Had a groupon for a massage and facial. It was the best facial I ever had. Patricia was amazing!! They were so nice there and very welcoming. Definitely recommended!
Kinda pissed about my experience at this salon for one reason that unfortunately has nothing to do with how my hair came out... I have short hair like a boy so when the girl was using a buzzer on the back of my hair she accidentally buzzed the necklace I was wearing in half. Broken. She pretended like nothing happened and kept going with the cut. Didn't apologize or anything. Lucky for her the necklace was not very expensive but what if it had been? My stylist was Kate/Kaitlyn. She did a pretty good job with my haircut overall and the style was great but wtf... Now I have to spend money to get my necklace fixed... An apology would have been appreciated. Idk if I will go back here because of this mishap. She could've asked me to take my necklace off or simply pushed it aside while she buzzed the back. Not happy.
Beth. Just go to Beth. By far the best hairdresser and worth WAY more than she charges. Unfortunately, she does cut a tad short.'cause she LOVES to cut, and is really conscientious about making sure everything is even (or whatever) and perfect. Love her! My whole family goes here!
