I agree that Luxe is one of the most exceptional salons around, by far. Mani does a fabulous job, I can highly recommend his talents. Cost is a factor for me too, as I was out of work for 6.5 mths this year, and now only work casually (so have to really watch my spending). I keep coming back to see Mani, but the time between visits is getting longer as a result. I've had to take a lot of time off work (no sick leave= no pay) after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in late July, emergency surgery in Aug ... time's are tough. I've made an appt. to see Mani on 1st Nov for a well-earned pick-me-up; getting your hair done is wonderful for one's mood!!
