"I've been going to the owner of Francine's Beauty Bar since 2006! Not only is she knowledgeable about the latest and current beauty trends but her primary focus is maintaining the health of her client's hair. She will never sacrifice healthy hair for style! Trina is excellent with cute cuts & long hair but what I love best is her CUSTOM coloringI get a TON of compliments on my hair- esp my custom blonde bob! On top of all that, she is the most professional stylist I have ever had- she is strict about her appointment book, I never wait crazy hours in her salon and most of all she genuinely tries hard to accommodate her clients! On several occasions I have also gone to Tiffany, the salon's nail tech. Just like Trina her services are nothing less than stellar! She does great gel manicures and her designs are carefully detailed, creative & innovative. I definitely enjoy getting pampered at Francine's Beauty Bar!" - Kia. H
"Katrina listens while combining her creativity, making the outcome spectacular. In addition, the atmosphere of the salon made my first visit even better. Thank you again."
"I bought a Groupon for a mani-pedi and redeemed it yesterday, 12/24/15. I will give the highest marks to Tiffini, who was great. I had a great experience and recommend her to anyone."
"I had my hair styled by Trina. She accommodated a last minute appointment and did a great job. I was in and out in two hours. Trina was so sweet. The ambiance of the place was really nice. The conversation in the salon was fun. It wasn't all loud and ghetto like a barbershop. The music was appropriate. As I looked around the salon, all of the stylists were very talented. I got a perm, cut, and style for $100.00. You can't beat that!!! I got sooo many compliments and have referred three friends."
"It's very hard to get a GREAT shampoo. Most girls just want to get the job done, without truly thinking of the satisfaction of the client. I have eczema of the scalp- in which my hair is normally VERY dry & itchy. Friday was my first time having my hair washed by Kiara- it was AMAZING!! She did my wash very smoothly, she didn't rush & she made sure my hair felt great before she prepped me for my style. I'm going to request for her to wash my hair each time I go. I felt like I was getting a hair massage- the way a wash at a salon should feel!"
"Well Groupon, you've done it again! You've turned me on to a new location to get manicures and pedicures. Had it not been for Groupon, I would've never noticed this salon. It's located on Old Annapolis Road and if you don't know the area or rely on your GPS, you won't find it. It's in a strip mall where the Cetrone's Pizza was located...right down from the Bowie MMA Martial Arts School. If I'm not mistaken, an ethnic food store sits in front of it and blocks the view of the salon from the road.
I called and made an appointment weeks in advance, because I figured it would be pretty busy. Good thing I did, because the nail technician, Tiffini, told me she had been really busy because of the Groupon special. I showed up for my appointment and noticed that the front portion of the shop has hairstylists doing hair and the nail station is in the back of the shop. I was greeted promptly by the owner of the shop. She was extremely friendly and walked me back to the nail station. Tiffani greeted me and got me started right away. Tiffani is such a sweet person and has a very pleasant demeanor. We held a conversation throughout my services and it wasn't forced.
Besides the wonderful job she did on my hands and feet, what impressed me the most was how sterile her equipment was. For example, after my pedicure was complete (she also did really wonderful designs for my toes) she cleaned the foot basin like no other....I mean she literally scrubbed it! (And before anyone tries to go there, she didn't scrub it because of my feet because she personally told me I have pretty feet...so nah! lol) After cleaning it, she filled the basin up with hot water added some cleaner and cut on the jets to clean it thoroughly. That thing ran for a good 20 minutes. TRULY IMPRESSED!!! I was equally impressed on how she books her clients because when I came in, she was finishing up with her previous client. I didn't have to wait to be serviced and she got me out in a reasonable time as well.
I'm not sure about her hours, but I do know that she's not at this location daily. I suggest calling the shop to book an appointment. It was a very positive experience and Tiffini did a wonderful job! I'm a fan!"
