Gillian Mercado: Rude staff, no customer service skills. Won't be returning.
meliSSa Jones: Always great, the staff is so friendly but it's a bit picked over lately...
Cristiane Saber: The customer service assistance was not friendly. The manager of this store in Downtown Vancouver was totally rude and impolite person.I’ve never received terrible and unkind assistance in the beauty industry. Because of help assistance such as this way, many companies have lost a lot of customers.Unfortunately, I had to go there in person because I couldn’t do my professional registration by website, and she told me that I am not able to do my professional registration even though I have a certificate from College (Hairstylist Course). In Addition, besides the boorish behaviour , she passed me the incorrect information because I entered into contact with cosmoprof CA by phone, and I am able to do it as a professional.Now,  I have my cosmoprof number approved , and I won’t ever go to this address again. I won't recommend this place to anybody.  NEVER.

Derek Chu: Good selection, friendly and helpful staff.
Chuk Yuen Colon Lai: For professional only
Bonnie KIM: There is so nice but shop is so small .
elaine urecko: Staff was helpful got what I needed
B KG: Alot of the ladies working at this location are rude. They aren't great with customers and are not willing to help find a product or answer simple questions. All you get are judgemental looks thrown your way along with rude remarks lol. I'd go to kingdom or order online. And FYI I'm not the only one who has had bad experiences at this particular location. Seems to be an ongoing trend at this store as I know two other people who left from here with a bad taste in their mouths. Atleast their products are always good I guess? Though that doesn't really have much to do with the people working here. Besides that its a convenient location near an Easypark garage and a coffee shop nearby so go figure!
Tabasom Rahimi: Terrible customer service
Susan Bartsch: I'm a hairdresser and they carry what i need too.
eryn coneybeer: Not very happy they closed 40 minutes early when I needed a colour for a client.

Blanche Macdonald Centre - Atelier Campus: what do users think?
Francis Cruz: I recently had the privilege of experiencing and being apart of the Blanche Macdonald Fashion Marketing Program from April 2022 to March 2023. The staff and the instructors went above and beyond my expectations, providing me with exceptional hands on knowledge to help me get a better understanding in the Fashion Industry. The connections i've built through my year attending here, whether it be with my peers or with the admin/instructors, have been connections that I will continue to cherish for the rest of my life. Super thankful for the admin/instructors for allowing me to explore different sides of the Fashion Industry, allowing me to learn more about where I want to be working in the future. This program will teach you more and more about the Fashion Industry that you didn't know, and I highly recommend anyone considering this program to reach out further and apply!
Jenna Bittle: I want to say a big thank you to the faculty at Blanche 💗I’m a personal shopping assistant at Holt Renfrew in womenswear and menswear department. I feel so prepared and equipped for this job because of the information from my wonderful teachers. It wouldn’t have happened without the opportunities I received while attending Blanche!I miss you all 💗💗💗
Richard Tan: As a graduate from Blanche Macdonald Centre, they gave me the foundations in order to professionally execute all aspects of the Fashion Industry. I had the privilege of meeting and learning with creative individuals.Everything about this school was inspiring. When you can't put it into words it speaks volumes to how appreciative I was attending the 1 year course for Global Marketing: Fashion and Social Media.They say when you figure out your passion in life no matter what field it is, it'll never feel like work to you. Being at Blanche was its own Utopia for me. My classmates and teachers motivated me every single day to give it my all.I love that each curriculum challenges you, and that's what life is all about. Taking a chance on yourself, because you never know unless you try. I am grateful to have been a Blanche Macdonald student in my lifetime.I wanted to personal thank each and everyone I came across during my time here. Whether we became friends or it was a quick hi, I wouldn’t be here without the help and guidance from everyone I met. I thank you all for my successes and future endeavours in the world of Fashion.If you're willing to put in the work and have the appreciation for Fashion as a whole, Blanche Macdonald Centre is for you.
Priscilla wan: Don’t waste your time here. This was my first time coming and wasted my money and time as they can’t do anything UNLESS you have virgin hair. When I made my appointment, I mentioned I have blonde highlights. Day of appointment, I go in requesting for dark brown hair. The student proceeded filling out a consultation form, only to call out to the instructor later. 30 minutes into the appointment, the instructor came by and was very rude. The instructor laughed at my request for brown hair and stating that nowhere else, not even a regular salon or school can accommodate the color I want….. dark brown hair. Of course I went to another hair salon and guess what, it was possible to change my full head hair to dark brown.
Vanessa Miner: I absolutely love Blanche Macdonald! This is the second fashion school I've attended as a Fashion Marketing student. While my last school mostly focused on just the business aspect (things like buying, wholesaling, starting a business, etc.), Blanche Macdonald taught that as well as things we need to know that are specific to the fashion industry itself. Things like history of fashion trends and also the history of fashion houses and their creative directors throughout the years. We were also taught things like different silhouettes and garment details so that we could go into the industry with not only business knowledge, but fashion knowledge as well.
Zahoor Hassan: I attended the Global Fashion Marketing Program and would recommend it to anyone wanting to start their career in fashion or beauty.My favourite classes were public relations, sustainability and business entrepreneurship. The program gives you an inside scoop into all the different parts of the fashion industry. Great internship and job opportunities while studying to prepare you once you graduate. Instructors are super helpful and knowledgeable!
sierra: The way they portray the global fashion marketing program is very misleading and far from what is what they actually teach you. Lyndi (a sweetheart) but she retaught the same information in all three classes I took. the social media teacher Lindsay has a very millennial approach that is very inaccurate and outdated. Peggy is incredible but her fashion elements class, certain parts are quite irrelevant to what you actually need to know about the fashion industry. Ex: the date of the years certain designers worked for certain brands. It’s just a way to make it seem like the people who graduate know more when it reality they don’t. They make it seem like it’s very hands-on but it isn’t. The only teacher who was hands-on in my opinion was Briana and Arshnoor. Everyone else just expected you to sit in a chair for 3.5 hours and listen while not taking into account that every student learns in a different way. Ps why are the classrooms so bland for a school that’s supposed to be a creative fashion space. It’s not worth the money because most of the places you apply to post-grad know how much of a scam it is. Every single friend of mine who went there (even past admission directors) know how terrible this school is. Don’t go into debt for a school that won’t help you get a job after. @mel and @tais
Shantay Dennis: With my instructors at Blanche being so passionate about what they taught and so encouraging to us as students it was a really inspiring and great learning experience. Blanche provided me with skills in all areas of the fashion, business and marketing industry. There was not one day I did not learn something new and valuable. Everyday I was learning and applying the skills I was taught into my life outside of school. I have developed a great sense of what it means to be apart of the fashion industry and what you need to successfully build and grow a business from scratch. Blanche always encouraged creativity from all students whether it was through assignments or class discussions and I feel that really helped me in discovering my own personal branding. Since graduating from Blanche in September 2022 I have left with a great skill set and deep knowledge on all the fashion and marketing essentials. I’ve started an internship at Banana Republic working with their incredible Visual Merchandising team. I am so excited for this new chapter of mine as I start my journey in the industry building my career, creating new experiences and meeting amazing people!
Sydney Pazurik: The first time I came here was great, it took 8 hours but I was fine waiting.Today I was humiliated, they looked at my hair for a minute or two before telling me they couldn’t bleach it because it had been dyed and that would require a “colour correction”. They refused to work on my hair and I had to leave the salon. Unless you have perfect, healthy, virgin hair, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME COMING HERE. The students were lovely but the two teachers were so rude and judgemental. I took the day off work to come here, now my day is ruined.
Van Guy: Since the COVID 19 pandemic began, I have been going to Blanche MacDonald Centre beauty school for inexpensive haircuts.Earlier today I needed grooming for my facial hair as opposed to a haircut. I had a student, Priyanka instructed by Holly who had suggested different ideas/techniques on how to style my facial hair as I needed to look sharp for a gala event I am to attend later.Although it is a beauty salon school, I was impressed at Holly’s knowledge of styling beards as I had been more accustomed to barber shops pre-pandemic, with the same style.I appreciated Holly was passionate about teaching students, in essence giving back with all her expertise she learned from.My beard looked great with a new style I never had before.I felt I was ‘giving back’ as I had a lot of time to offer… as the students are learning and training in a new occupation, they need the extra time to practice what they are being taught.Thanks Holly. By teaching you are coming full circle by passing on everything you have learned with the added experience of being a hair stylist for a new set students to graduate. Keep it up! 😉
Amelia Paczynski: I went to Blanche Macdonald for fashion design. It was a really great experience! Instructors were helpful and had a lot of knowledge and real world experience to share about the fashion industry. There is support for finding a job in fashion after you graduate. Mel and Brianna are super helpful, I was hired within 2 months after reaching out to them. Overall my experience at Blanche was a lot of hard work, I learned so much, and it was a great step towards becoming a fashion designer!
Brandon Mitchell: I was very lucky to meet and Alicia and Holly at the Blanche Macdonald Centre. Alicia is in the process of learning to become a barber and Holly was instructing a course on how to do it, Holly is an extremely patient and friendly instructor. Alicia was extremely polite, friendly, and an amazing student. I was so impressed by Alicia's success through the program, she told me that she had started in June and that I was her 8th live haircut from the time she started the program.Alicia washed my hair, cut, buzzed, trimmed, and even finished off with a warm towel shave. It was a relaxing experience. I have to say I was a bit concerned at before going in for a cut and shave due to past experience at a different hair school many years ago, but thanks to Holly's guidance with the program Alicia did such an amazing job, it is by far the best cut and shave I have had in a while that is right on par with all the local professionals with many years of experience!So happy to support their efforts and wishing many years of continued success, keep up the hard work!-Brandon
Lexi S: As both a previous student and now an employer, I can say that Blanche Macdonald empowers its students with a vast foundation and knowledge of the fashion industry. We look to Blanche for students interested in retail, styling, event management, PR and more. The career centre has been more than generous helping us find the appropriate students for our needs. I have personally reviewed my own studies from Blanche throughout my career, especially when I started my own line and opened our first flagship retail location.
Raman Toor: I graduated from the Global Fashion Marketing Program 4 months ago and it was amazing! The classes are very diverse so you truly get a great insight into the entire industry. All of my teachers were amazing, incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what they were teaching, truly made the experience that much better! The projects double as portfolio pieces, leaving you with content to present employers post graduations. This program challenged me in the best ways possible and I 100% recommend it to anyone considering it!
Susan Ellahi: Can’t be happier .now I’m a salon owner and blanch is the best .
Kimia Kashani Momtaz: attending Blanche Macdonolad fashion program was a very good decision because it is a truly inspirational fashion school.
Victoria Baranowski: I took the global fashion marketing program and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The teachers where so fascinating. I learnt so much and not just about marketing but public relations, film industry, manufacturing and more. I graduated June 24 2022 and the Blanche staff has helped me get an internship in the field I wanted, and from this I landed a full time position. Thank you to all the staff and all my new friends I’ve acquired.
Laila A: I can't speak enough about the great experience I had at blanche Macdonald, from day one everything was perfect. The admnistration makes every step easy. I did my registration with Susan and she was so kind, thoughtful honest and everything was explained with a total honesty I felt so confortable with her. The teachers are helpful kind and very patient.The school is in a great location, it's a small classes so we have a lot of attention from the teachers. I looked around and I could not find better.
25324 Meira: When I decided to study fashion in Canada, I was told some options, but I ended up choosing to do it at BMC and I am very happy to have made this choice, I already have a fashion education in Brazil, but taking the one-year course helped me a lot to retrain and improve technically, the teachers and staff are wonderful and I am grateful to all of them. After graduating, I was invited to join the team as an assistant teacher and also an introductory sewing instructor, BMC has become more than a school for me and I have no doubt it was my best choice.Beatriz Gontijo - BR
Dylan Wiens: I had a great experience with Blanche Macdonald and their Fashion Marketing course. Everyone at Blanche truly cares about our careers and go the extra mile in trying to set you up with work once you've graduated.
Aashna Nanda: I love blanche macdonald have been enjoying my classes a lot so far. Teachers are really kind and understanding, and the environment is friendly, creative and supportive! my mom went to blanche before me and loved it as well, if you're a creative person or interesting in any program blanche offers, i would highly recommend going here!

West Coast Beauty (Vancouver): what do users think?
Danika Cahill: I LOVE it here. I really enjoy coming in a few times a month. The staff are truly amazing!! West Coast carries most of my favourite brands. It’s so easy to buy way more then what you need. I suggest going in with a list and sticking to it..if you can.
M K: As I started my business, So I went to this store and spent almost $1,500 in total.After visiting this store a few times while I'm getting ready for my business to open, I heard there is an intro promotion that I've never heard of in this store.I don't know why this company is doing promotions that don't tell consumers. Last week, I talked to staff, and the staff said she wouldn't tell anyone who didn't ask about the promotion. Isn't it aimed at consumers? Is it an event between your employees?she also said that some people don't like intro promotions. who doesn't like free stuff?I experienced something this ridiculous and I don't want to experience it again. I'll never visit this store again and use another supplier. Staff are really rude and terrible. They didn't admit their mistakes and made ridiculous excuses. Staff training and services are so poor. I felt they look down on me.Again, I'm not going to recommend any other new owner and hairdresser.THIS STORE NOT GOOD FOR A NEW BUSINESS OWNER

Blanche Macdonald Centre - Uptown Campus: what do users think?
poonam monga: I am a freelance artist. I took my fashion course from Luciana. She was awesome and I learnt a lot under her. I highly recommend her to all❤️❤️
mglanfield: Blanche Macdonald has been incredibly supportive with our 2023 hiring season at the Island Currents Spa at Sonora Resort. Their administration team has provided a keen interest, professionalism and ongoing support with our hiring process. In the past we have employed many previous graduates from their school, that provided exceptional high end spa service and treatments to our cliental. I would not hesitate to recommend their school for not only hiring but for student enrollment as well.Michelle GlanfieldSpa ManagerIsland Currents Spa at Sonora Resort
Pam Sklofsky: I was incredibly disappointed with the nail program at Blanche. Highly over priced for the kit and products received. Definitely didn't learn current techniques and we didn't cover a quarter of the notes received for the artificial module. I've heard all other programs at Blanche are amazing but they definitely missed the mark for nails. I didn't feel heard by staff with regards to my concerns until things went to the highest level. Don't forget that WE are your customers, Blanche.
Lisa Liang: I met Caroline Crochet, the owner of La Cachette Spa and a former instructor of Blanche Macdonald. It was then I got to experience my first facial with her and it was absolutely life-changing. With her extensive knowledge, Caroline has single-handedly inspired my new passion in life, SKIN! Knowing that Caroline went to Blanche Macdonald I knew I needed to go there and like that, I was enrolled at Blanche. Starting my first day of class, I met Angie Barnetson, an instructor at Blanche Macdonald. Angie made me fall in love with learning about the skin and doing nails. I now work for Caroline as her senior esthetician. Amazing school that will steer you in the right direction if you want to be in this industry!
R D: God bless holly, Phil, Susan, Barb and the whole team at blanche,What a great and memorable experienceI highly recommend the barbering program,Elite level training by Holly!She will take your skills to the next level!Nothing but good things to say!
Based Adonis: Taryn K gave me such a great shamp and sty that I stopped paying my hydro bill, and have started just going to her for my shamp and sty’s now. Have never been happier
Jamie: My experience at Blanche was excellent. After several years of planning to attend, it did not disappoint.I was fascinated by the many instructor’s authentic backgrounds from various fields like celebrity makeup, fashion week/runway, & TV/film, with work spanning from Vancouver to New York to London to LA. I was often on the edge of my seat hearing stories & techniques from these accomplished artists.As an ardent fan of movies & makeup FX since childhood, it was amazing for me to learn from artists who’ve built entire careers working on movie sets & in FX labs. As a child I would watch movie makeup VHS & DVD making-of featurettes over & over - so to be able to study under these kinds of creators in person was just so cool.I also felt the school environment was enhanced by the makeup program managers as well as the the career team. Both of these departments were always so encouraging, supportive, & available to discuss next steps & career strategies.This experience has put me on the path to being able to focus on doing what I love. Thanks so much to these incredible instructors, managers & to Blanche Macdonald!
Monica Randhawa: This school is great for everything except nails. Myself and my class all left the school feeling confused frustrated and incompetent with our skills. The products that were given to us to use were hard to work with and many people ended up in tears from frustration. My brushes from the kit were poor quality and most of them can be found at the dollar store. When asking for help we were not taught but just shown how to do it. Staff was friendly to our faces but there was gossiping going on about students. I highly do NOT recommend this school for nails save your money and time.
Kerry Maguire: I'm 1 month away from finishing the Freelance Makeup Artistry Program, and I've already made the jump from my day job to working full time in the industry. With the help of the instructors and the school staff, I've been given the tools to become a freelancer with multiple makeup brands and I freelance in almost every facet of the industry right now (fashion, bridal, film... I do it all!) Thank you so much Blanche for jumpstarting my career
Nemo Hu: with a Global Esthetics diploma. It’s amazing place to learn professional knowledge and skills as well as valuable industry experiences from my great instructors (i.e. Behnaz, Carrie, Jamie, Lesley, Natalia, and Tasneem
JIENE ZHANG: My wife was a student there recently and she said this school is awesome!
Sun**: I came to have a haircut in downtown campus last week. I have received one of the best treatments in the cut. Although the student, Kylar, was very new and very slow in the cut, he was very careful. The thing that I like him the most was his gentle and friendly attitude toward clients. I think that this is a very important quality when a barber performs on a personal service. I was willing and patience to give him all the time that I have that afternoon. When my time run out, he has to pass the cut to the instructor, Jenny, to complete the work. She was one of the very friendly teachers at Blanche MacDonald. Needless to say, that she did a beautiful cut while she showed the work to the student. I always confidence to the teachers and to most of the students at this school. I know the teachers will back up the cut before the students make irreversible mistakes. I don’t make a big deal of it if it turns out not to my satisfaction because I just wear a baseball cap for a week or so. I have never needed to. Hair will grow back. Thank you, Jenny and Kylar.
bela narang: It is a wonderful place to learn and grow! Practice is the key to perfection! Having said that , the instructors are marvellous !! With them sharing knowledge with years of experience in the industry while teaching is an icing on the cake! well planned our curriculum and class room experience was just outstanding!
Ashleigh Stewart: I attended the freelance makeup program and haven't regretted it. Since graduation I have had a very successful and thriving career with plenty of respect, support, guidance and mentorship from both my teachers and the career department. What made me choose Blanche over other schools, aside from its reputation, was the fact that the career department is dedicated to supporting graduates even after they finish school and they have truly stood up to that. I left my career in finance to become a HMUA and have had support with weddings, working with photographers, getting students to assist me in a team when I was key for a prestigious fashion gala, and ongoing mentorship in other ways too when I have questions or need some guidance. Jordy, Sussanne and Leah have really helped me too, they help me out when I have questions about jobs or projects and answer me the same day and have never made me feel like I am bothersome to them. The learning has continued even after graduation! I truly appreciate it. While I was at school, I really enjoyed it. The classes were fun and excellent, with top notch curriculum and standards from technical makeup and hair styling to hygiene and safety standards. I follow and implement everything I was taught there and have been really successful so far. The kit we received was comprehensive and all round great, we really do receive all we need to get straight to work in the industry. The community at the school is respectful, inviting, warm, friendly, encouraging, supportive and a lot of fun! I loved it there and miss being at school. If you are wanting to go to study makeup, hair, beauty then I highly recommend Blanche MacDonald.
Christina Jana Siratranont: My experience with Blanche Macdonald is truly a great one so far and I'm not even halfway through the program. I recently moved to Canada not knowing where my career was going to, and figured maybe I should try to build a career in the make-up industry. I didn't even know about Blanche Macdonald until I googled it and it was the first thing that appeared in the search results. Not knowing that it was actually the best makeup school in Canada, I enrolled myself in and I must say it's really transforming. I was just really planning to enhance my skills for Bridal Makeup and I was so glad that I enrolled in the Global Makeup Diploma program, they cover everything from basic makeup fundamentals to the most advanced modules for TV and Film, prosthetics and special effects and many more from creating résumés to building your own portfolio! I am so excited for what the future holds for all of us students. The instructors are very hands on, they really push you to bring out your best. The school also helps us find jobs and employment opportunities because they never stop providing us opportunities to volunteer and be exposed, which eventually opens up a network of opportunities. I have never been more confident with my makeup skills until after enrolling! I must say, Blanche Macdonald really prepares you for your make-up career, they don't only teach you make-up skills but also prepare you for your professional career. I am so proud to be a BMC Student.
Angela Nguyen: Unforgettable experience at Blanche Macdonald Centre where everyone is welcome and included. Staff and teachers know you by name in a warm supportive environment. High standard quality in teaching and learning experience. I’m proud to be grad of BMC, top beauty school in Canada.
Harpriya: Being a part of the freelance makeup program at BMC is one of the best opportunities that I have ever got. The level of skills growth I got to experience in all these months is tremendous. There have been number of opportunities to volunteer with some renowned organizations along with well known professionals. At BMC i am not only learning skills but also getting every possible opportunity to put that into action and getting better at being the best. I also really want to thank the career department team.THANK YOU BLANCHE MacDonald!!!!
Carly Kennedy: I loved attending Blanche Macdonald Centre! The teachers and staff were always so understanding and friendly. On my days off I would look forward to going back to school. The Global Program helped me understand where I wanted to further my career in makeup and introduced me to other areas of the feild in the makeup industry. I would definitely recommend Blanche Macdonald to anyone who wants a career in makeup! Glad I studied there :)Thank you Blanche Macdonald 3
Lulu Marieth K: I am truly blessed and grateful to have been selected as a recipient of the Blanche Macdonald Black Canadian Scholarship. I attended the Global Esthetics Program from September 2021 to September 2022 at the City Square campus. The hands-on training, theoretical knowledge as well as genuine kindness I received from my instructors was exceptional! As someone who values the holistic approach to healing the body, I particularly enjoyed learning Ayurvedic and Hot Stone massage methods, grounding techniques before starting a facial and learning more about holistic beauty products through the Cosmetic Kitchen Project. I will definitely incorporate them into treatments I offer clients. This program taught me to view the beauty and wellness industry from the lens of a service provider and that has made a major difference. I feel equipped and confident to launch my holistic esthetics business and bring my education plus experience to not only Canada but also my home country of Tanzania. Thank you Blanche Macdonald for awakening my dream of being an esthetician through skills, knowledge and a compassionate learning environment.
Atika Shahid: I am the present student of esthetic program. One of the best schools I have ever attached. Some of my favourite great teachers are carri, perri, Angie and simona. Still in school but already got a job in the industry with the help of school . Pretty much you get helped at each step.Super friendly environment great teachers and great staffOne of the best place to start your dream journey
Dawn Bourque: I recently graduated from the Freelance Makeup Artistry program at Blanche in August 2022! I had always received good feedback and reviews which prompted me to enroll there. After having completed the program I can honestly say it is a wonderful environment for learning and honing your craft. Whether you have no clue about makeup or you have a natural talent and want to up your skills, the school will support you. The instructors are passionate and work in the industry—none of that “those who can’t do, teach”. So you get up-to-date knowledge about the industry as it currently is. Each instructor brings a different flavour to their module so I find it helpful to get exposed to different ways of doing things. The Directors always have an open door (or inbox) policy—to show off your work or ask questions or get feedback or provide feedback. The careers department is determined that every graduate should find work in the industry and are around and available constantly to assist. The schools Facebook pages assist grads with job and volunteer opportunities. I would say it’s nearly impossible to fail here and if you do it’s your own doing really. Highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to enter the industry full time or part time. It’s a good jumping off point but of course success only comes to those who put in the work!

PROTA Beauty Supplies Ltd.: what do users think?
Xxsavag123 sadhra: Very good Very nice
Ellie Wang: I have been buying company supplies from this company for more than 5 years. The company opened and bought three massage beds, each of which cost more than $300. As a result, the skin began to crack and peel after less than a year of use (with pictures as evidence

The gentleman was super helpful, he spent lots of time with me explaining the different features of the beds and even went to the trouble of un-boxing everything for me so I could fit it all in my little hatchback so I didn't have to make a second trip down with a truck. Great prices as well! Highly recommend this company for anyone looking for spa/salon furniture.

Breizh Esthetics & Salon Supply Co. - Mobile Spa & Beauty Supplies: what do users think?
Doris: Customer service used to be top notch but unfortunately has really slipped. Pier Auge Gentle peel exfoliant is the best peel I've ever worked with professionally in the past and ordering in the past was amazing but I tried to reorder on and off for the past 2 years and when I finally got thru to confirm credentials was told to send my order via text message...When clicking on "see outside" or referencing the actual address thru Google street view it takes to a residential townhouse complex that looks nothing like the business photo posted online, although I may be wrong it does appear to be a scam... so I am currently looking for a new supplier even from the U.S. that carries Pier Auge professional.
Kristine Grant: Worst Customer service and product was never sent and I requested for a refund and it never came. Worst company ever. They shorted us twice in our orders - never refunded us and never sent us the "backordered" products. Contacted several times by phone and email but never responded. They used to be a very good business to purchase from.I drove to the supplier address and it is in a residential neighbourhood in a not very nice looking duplex apartment building????Stay far away from this company.
Marni Beninger: Worst company ever. They shorted us twice in our orders - never refunded us and never sent us the "backordered" products. Contact multiple times by phone and email but never responded. Stay far away from this company.
WH Wellness and Health: I have been trying to contact this company for the past 2 months... I have left numerous phone messages, applied for an account twice and nothing happens! Sent multiple emails and have gotten only 2 email responses 4 weeks after initial email was sent and they stated they apologize for the inconvenience and that they would like to take my order. But then never responded to my email with my new order. I would not recommend ordering from this company as you will just be ignored. Very unimpressed.
bossmd: Terrible Company !!! Many times have been trying to place an order and sent multiple emails, 3 times applied to create an account and many times try to call them - no any answers !!!
Jill Rowan: Great service. I have never been disappointed.
Saly Berman: I have been trying to place an order for several days and sent multiple emails, applied to create an account twice and placed multiple calls. One response to an email that was short and did not answer anything I inquired about, they have not accepted or allowed me to create an account and lastly they have not answered the phone. I have had their business page open with all my items in the card for a couple days and still haven't made my purchase due to their lack of response. I am a business owner and have offered to show them my license or anything to speed up this process but no response. I even went on their facebook page and sent them a message and yet again no response.Still waiting for a response if I do get one.
Julia Russell: Have been calling and calling over the past week, sent many emails and haven't heard a thing from them. Are you permanently closed? Are all staff on holiday? Why is noone returning any calls/emails or even answering the phone in the first place?? Horrible.
Polina Kokar: Products are good, customer service is awful. I've never seen such a negligence. They charge for full order and ship half of it. Sometimes even wrong products. I shopped with them more than a month ago. Part of my order wasn't delivered. I was told that they don't have and will ship it soon. More than a month past... Nothing was shipped. And to make it worth they don't pick up the phone or answer the emails. Don't deal with them!
Michelle Jukic: The wrong applicator and wax was shipped to me and they did not respond to multiple phone calls and emails regarding exchange or return. Customer service is non existent.
Mila Paltsava: Since they closed their location on Main St., it’s start to be a problem. I made my order April 2nd, they got my payment, but since then - no single sign they are exist at all. I still didn’t get my order, and I called them many times, left massages, sent a massage on Facebook, but nobody calls me back or contact. Really a “good way” to manage the business.
Peggy Toner: Save yourself a lot of frustration and shop somewhere else!! Emails are left unanswered for days on end, shipments are delayed and questions about these things are met with lies and excuses! I had to wait over 2 weeks for a facial steamer that never came because my “payment didn’t go through”. - even though I was told my etransfer had been received and the steamer would be shipped out the same day. So frustrating.
