Saw Kim K's Husband Kris Humpries in the salon – I'm a regular at Contempo Nails and when I came in today I saw everyone up around this huge tall guy asking for autographs. It turned out to be Kris Humpries, Kim Kardashian's husband. It funny, he must be a regular too because I saw him here before his wedding to Kim K with a bunch of his NBA friends here too. They were also tall. It makes me feel good that I'm a regular where the stars go. ha ha ha :)
Best nail salon in Los Angeles – I have been getting my nails done at Contempo for over 10 years. Even though it's out of my way, and there are plenty of decent nail salons in my neighborhood, I keep going back. I have been getting mani pedi's for decades, and the best place in L.A. is Contempo.
I first went because a trusted friend told me about Contempo - she too drove out of her way to get the great service. I was amazed that Diane, the owner, remembered my name on my 2nd visit - nearly a month after the my first visit!
I introduced many friends to Contempo and their excellent service. While many businesses do not last, Contempo has expanded - and you know it's because the service is so good.
Every now and then because of a busy schedule I'll go to someone closer to my home and the manicure never lasts as long or is as well done. It's always worth it to go out of my way, besides they are always noticeably faster than others. Diane has all of her employees trained in good manners and quick service. Consistency is valuable. I really don't know how she remembers which of the employees someone likes best, but I notice that she remembers these details more than anyone could expect.
They are so popular on the weekend - I tend to go at the off times so that it's more relaxed - but even when I go at the busiest times, Diane does a good job of making sure everyone gets well taken care of. Diane is very loving and kind to everyone - so attentive to details. She makes sure everyone is cared for and appreciated. I don't know how she does it! I'm so glad that she's still there.
I've never written one of these reviews at Citysearch before, but I feel compelled to share such a good find!
Nice & Comfortable Environment!!! – I have been to so many nail salons and Contempo Nails is one my favorite place in Beverly Hills. As soon as I walk in the store, Diane, the store manager would greet and seat me right away. When I sat down, she asked if I wanted something to drink and handed me a magazine to read. I thought that was very kind of her. I could tell she takes good care of her clients here. I really recommended this place for anyone who loves good customer service and quick service. They are very busy on the weekends, so I recommend coming on a weekday. I was very satisfied with my manicure & pedicure. I also tried their massage there too. Overall, I had a great experience with Contempo Nails.
Competing Nails Salon Bad Rumors Not True !!! – I had written a good review for Contempo Nails last week and immediately the next day I received an anonymous email claiming that they used to be a former employee of Contempo Nails. They had nothing but bad things to say about Contempo Nails. I was quite surprised so being a CIS expert I decided to do some investigating on where this email originated from. Interestingly enough, I traced the origin of the email to a local nail salon located on the same block on Robertson Blvd. I also traced it to who's computer she used to write it and how many emails was sent out.
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure what's going on here. COMPETITION !!!!
Competing nail salons are trying to discourage customers like myself from going to Contempo Nails. I feel this is a terrible way to do business. An HONEST business is the best business. Trying to spread bad rumors about your competitor because you cannot compete the HONEST way is wrong.
I wanted to write this review to inform those of you who received these deceiving emails to know the truth.
Contempo Nails has always been good to me and I never ever had a problem therfore I will continue to do business with them.
An Honest Business is a Good Business.....
The Truth Exposed – I had an interesting experience at Contempo Nails which prompt me to write this review. To start off I would like to give good compliments to Diane and a few of the staff their for doing a great job not only on the quality of the service but excellent customer service as well.
I recently started hearing some bad rumors about how Diane does not pay her workers for the free manicures she gives out to customers. My first thought was that's not good. To make a long story short I later confirmed it with a few Contempo Nails workers that THERE ALL LIES. The rumors came from competitors trying to bring down Diane and Contempo Nails.
Contempo Nails has been around for 25 years and the most successful nail salon in Beverly Hills so obviously many people wants to take out those on top. I see now that it's a cut throat business and Diane has to take many attacks coming from everywhere. I consulted Diane about this issue and she said it's the nature of the people in this business and sometimes the attacks also comes from within simply because of jealousy among each other. She is greatful that she still has a few loyal and honest employees.
One of Diane's employee name Thu also told me that all the staff members here has a freelance schedule which means that they all schedule their appointments and break time to their own desires.
This proves that all the other rumors about how Diane treats them like slaves and not giving a lunch break are also lies.
I really do feel for Diane so I decided that I had to write this review to EXPOSE THE TRUTH and stand up against dirty bad rumors from her competitors. The people who started these rumors will never get my business and you know who you are. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Contempo Nails is the best and most honest nail salon in town for over 25 years and I will continue to be a loyal customer.
Loyal Customer – My friend Leanne is a loyal customer for 15 years and highly recommended it to me and now so am I. Mostly everyone is nice, friendly with good sense of customer service. It surprised me that Steve and a few of the other workers asked my friend to write a bad review about Diane and in return offered to compensate her with a massage. They even talk bad about Diane's personal life to us. I thought it was kinda low to hear men gossip. I had a few 9:00 a.m. appointments with Steve and He did not show up at all. I don't mind being late but not showing up at all shows you he's a person with no sense of decency and lack of education. Every time when I am there I see Diane spinning do so to help customers and at the same time tries to make her employee's job easier but seems like they do not appreciate it. I really like Contempo Nails because the way Diane runs her salon. Good customer service, many selections, affordable prices and spacious
Nice Friendly Place – I have been to almost all the nail salons in Beverly Hills and my final conclusion is IContempo Nails is my favorite. They have many selections of polishes for you to choose from and their prices are reasonably fair. Customer service is quit good. It can get crowded there but the place is very big so you will get seated fast. I suggest going to their website for coupons before coming in. Overall I really like it there. I recommend to others.
I Like Very Much – I have to say this is my favorite place. Diane is always wonderful. I have to really give her great respect. Both her dad and grandmother just past away on the same day and she still comes in to run the salon. I don't know if I can do the same thing if I was in the same situation. Now I can see why her salon is still running strong after 25 years in business. I totally admire her...
I highly recommend Contempo Nails but make sure you see Diane when going there. She's always at the front desk.
Nice place with affordable pricing.. – This is my second visit to Contempo Nails since 2009. I was here in 2009 for a business trip and really liked it and so I wanted go again. It got bigger since the last time I was here. The service is great and my nails look beautiful. The only complaint I have is when I was here in 2009 a girl name "My" and a guy with tattoos helped me. They looked kind of crooked to me. I paid them with cash but they tried to exchange it with a Contempo Nails Coupon or something. I couldn't understand them clearly but I can see it in their eyes thatI there was something crooked going on. This time I don't see them here anymore so I just ask to pay at the front counter to make things easier. Overall, everything is great this time without any problems this time. Will be coming back...
Best Place with many selections to choose from – This is the best nail salon in Beverly Hills. I love that fact that they have the best selections with many to choose from. The place is huge and comfortable. The service is also a plus. Overall I like it very much. Highly recommend it to everyone.
