    Great salon with terrific, helpful, and friendly hairdressers who have a great sense of style. Been going to them for years (at Jacob Keller) and never have been disappointed. Highly recommend. Hair and spa services are terrific.

    I love the high touch services of Lanny at ThuLan. Her manicure and pedicure procedures are wonderful. Her customer service style is lovely. She is great a making a connection with her patrons. I highly recommend her if you are looking for quality, privacy, and individualized attention.

    Alicia is absolutely fantastic! Her customer service, answering all questions, she always goes above and beyond for me. I highly recommend Bravo Beauty Med Spa, I would never go to anyone else. Thank you for everything Alicia!!!!

    If you are looking for a knowledgeable esthetician and a fabulous experience go see Barbara immediately. She's amazing. I've struggled all my life with my skin. Acne, red spots, you name it. My skin has never been more clear since I started seeing her. She is extremely attentive and knows exactly what I need. Her room is relaxing and inviting. I go back every 6 weeks. Check her out!

    I’ve been going to Barb for facials for awhile. She is absolutely amazing . I always walk away feeling fabulous.

    Barb is the best- had a facial, which I hadn't had in years.. she was totally amazing and my face feels wonderful. IN ADDITION- I've had a few Reiki sessions and she is a master. Barbara is the best at her crafts.

    I just had another wonderful Microcurrent session...my skin feels like velvet. Barbara does magic! She combined Facials, which are heavely with Micro-current and I look a decade younger. My skin has a glow to it, it’s firmer, and looks so great I don’t need makeup. She does the best Lash Extensions in the State...and they stay on...and feel weightless.
    Barbara also does Reiki...which helps inside and out.. When I leave after a session I feel healthier, happier, well rested and so relaxed. She is truly gifted,
    So ladies, if you want to love the way you look and seriously look 10 years younger you need to go see Barbara...you will love her.

    George Jacob is a very precise stylist. I love the way he cuts my hair, and on top of that, he is a pleasant person -- witty, kind, and not intrusive. I've also brought my children here, and Paula has done a wonderful job with them. The cuts were great, and my daughter loves her.

    I'm writing this review specifically in regards to services provided at Bravo Beauty, which is located at the Off Center Salon & Spa in West Hartford, CT. I'm newly a WeHa dweller, and was searching for a locally accessible and experienced Aesthetic APRN or MD to get maintenance injectables (Botox or Dysport), and other similar services (peels, microdermabrasion, etc.). I was seeking a proficiently knowledgeable practitioner with exceptionally high standards, quality products and services offered.

    I am savvy enough of a shopper/client/patient to look for a provider offering quality services that are NOT ridiculously overpriced or underpriced but then diluted. Until, in this area, the vast majority of local businesses (especially spa and nonsurgical cosmetic beauty services) tend to mark up their prices astronomically! All simply due to the zip code their businesses reside in. However, when I found the fabulous and highly acclaimed Aesthetic APRN, Alicia Bravo, Owner of Bravo Beauty, I was enthralled!

    I am beyond neurotic when it comes to throughly researching such a practitioner, especially when it comes to these types of services. Alicia came hugely recommended and had a roaringly flawless internet presence as well! It's exceptionally rare to find a business without any negative reviews; however, I did not come across even one bad review for her or her business, Bravo Beauty!

    I was even more impressed when I called to schedule an appointment and she honored her Groupon rate offer. I was a new customer and the offer had sold out (her offers regularly sell out quickly) online. I'm not one to typically purchase any type of cosmetic services at a discounted price, but in this instance I felt confident that it was entirely safe and would be a quality transaction. Her reviews spoke for themselves and there were a plethora of them to back up the fanfare! When I later met Alicia, I told her about her positive and polished reviews. She then explained to me that she's attempting to grow her business and that thousands of women see her offers online this way. It made entire sense to me.

    When I first arrived at the Off Center Salon and Spa to visit Bravo Beauty, I was thoroughly impressed with the modern decor, friendly staff, and overall cleanliness standards reminiscent of a hospital. Alicia as a practitioner is very knowledgeable, vivacious, and I immediately felt at ease speaking with her. She was very thorough, and I didn't feel rushed during my appointment at all. I felt that Alicia knew the science of injectables exceedingly well and I was quite impressed that she wasn't trying to sell or pressure me to purchase more services than I actually needed.

    I had only used Dysport in the past and told her that even though I'm in my early 30's, that I had been given way too much of it in the past. She then explained to me that Dysport often produces a, "softer," look in contrast to Botox. She then recommended that we use 20 units, instead of 40 units and that if I felt I needed more, to call her in 10-14 days. I was very happy with the outcome of my experience using Bravo Beauty as a nonsurgical cosmetic provider and I would HIGHLY recommend her services to a friend or family member! I give her 5 stars without even blinking and typically I can be quite critical, so know that if I believe her business and standards are this superb that it's truly a rarity!

    I cannot say enough good things about Renee and Off Center Skin Care. The facials are phenomenal. Renee takes the time to really assess your skin and tailor a treatment to your specific needs. She is very personable and really knows what she is talking about. I learned more about my skin with her than I have ever learned at any other facial. I also loved that she did not try to push products on me at the end. Highly, highly recommend.

    Great for mani-pedi-waxing; can't speak for hair services since I just had nails and an eyebrow wax done. I purchased a Groupon (of course) for $49 for a shellac manicure, executive pedicure and facial waxing (can't beat it)and made my appointment with Lanny (Lonnie?). She is a super-sweet, friendly lady that will make you feel right at home. The pedicure was heaven (especially with the warm stone massage), the shellac manicure was great and my eyebrows are tamed once again. Obviously the Groupon deal got me in the door but I will definitely be back for that executive pedicure in the future. My only complaint (and it's not really a big one) is why they make all new customers purchase a $5.00 nail kit? I've never heard or had to do this before. I like that this ensures your nail equipment is new (and therefore clean) but not quite sure why? Are you supposed to bring it back each time? That seems kind of silly...

    Regardless, I had a great experience and I highly recommend this place.

    I purchased a groupon for a shellac manicure and a pedicure with Lani and it was great!!!! She really went out of her way to make me feel relaxed!! Lani has a great personality and she was really easy to talk to. She pampered my legs with a mask, heated wraps and booties, a nice massage oil and she did a wonderful job on my toes!! My manicure was just as great and she even made a custom nail shade just for me!!! I will totally come back to see her for her services!!! I HIGHLY recommend her!!!!!!!!!

    Went here to use a groupon i got for a shellac manicure, executive pedicure, and wax with Lani. She was great, super nice and did a fantastic job! I especially loved the executive pedicure which includes a hot stone massage. My only complaint was that the other staff in the salon were not very nice, especially the receptionist. Overall I can't speak for the other services, but I definitely recommend the nail service with Lani!

  • *****

    Nails with Lani were fantastic! A week later and my manicure is still fully intact - a minor miracle for me. Will definitely be going back!

    Wow! I had a great microcurrent facial today from Barbara, it totally exceeded my expectations. The treatment left my skin glowing and also left me totally relaxed. So worth it that I booked another while I was still there today!

    I have been a customer of George's now for over 25+ years. That in it self should tell you something right. The entire staff is great, friendly and great at what they all do! If you what a incredible facial, massage or healing you must go to the SPA! If you are looking for a outstanding haircut, color or any salon or spa service this is the place!!

    This was one of the best facials i have ever had. I have continued going there it's clean and professional . Barb has also done reiki for me ... She's definitely a master at her profession!

    I am so thrilled to have found a person like Alicia Bravo. I moved from California, and finding a great spa for Botox and fillers was extremely hard in CT. She is professional, reasonably priced, and very accommodating. I have been getting Botox for 10 years and she is one of the best!!!
