Posted November 01, 2018 08:11:59 A Melbourne woman has accused her manicure artist of not getting the job done and said the manicure “wasn’nt my idea”.
In a series of tweets on Friday, Melissa Ayliffe-Chung said she bought the nail art and pedicure at the Melbourne Beauty Salon in 2015, but it took her more than a year to receive the products and they were not the ones she wanted.
Ms Ayliff-Chun said she has since been waiting for more than three months to receive her manicures.
“The pedicures were the first ones I received, but I was a little bit concerned,” she said.
“I was a bit wary that I was not getting it right, but ultimately I have been very satisfied.”
Ms Auliffe-Charters told ABC News it was important for people to know that manicure artists are professional and are trained to help clients achieve their goals.
“In my case, I was looking for something different, something that was a more personal touch and it turned out to be my favorite product that I could get for my nails,” she told the ABC.
“It was not my idea.
It was someone else’s idea.”
The salon was closed last week, but Ms Ayleff-Chunk said she will continue to use the products, and she is hopeful that others will take the same step.
“People need to be aware of this,” she added.
“If people have a complaint about the services that they receive, they should talk to their local salon or go to the website and see if they can help.”
The ABC has asked the salon’s owner, Mandy Chaney, if she will be taking any further action.
“This has been an extremely difficult time for me, for the staff and for my clients,” she wrote on Twitter.
“My intention was to be very upfront with them about the circumstances and to help them find the best solution for them.”
Ms Chaney said she did not receive any complaints and that she had been “unable to work for more time than I’ve had to”.
“It’s really important to keep people informed, especially when they’re coming from families who are financially strapped,” she tweeted.
Ms Chaneys salon is one of a handful of beauty salons across Australia offering nail art, pedicurys and other products for women.
