Guide Review - The Refinery Salon and Spa in Dinkytown, Minneapolis
Spa services are performed in private cubicles rather than rooms and you'll easily be able to hear what your neighbor is having done. No one can see your bikini wax except you and the technician but if you feel that the people in the waiting room listening to the wax rip is outside your comfort limits, go elsewhere. And while we are on the subject of waxing, technicians in other spas show you to a room, leave while you disrobe, and provide an extra sheet to cover everywhere but the area worked on. The Refinery doesn't bother with any of that which keeps costs down and gets things done much faster.
The receptionists can be brusque but the technicians and stylists are professional, friendly and their work is as good as in more expensive salons. Price for hair and nail services can be matched at many other Twin Cities salons, but for spa services, the Refinery has some of the cheapest in the Twin Cities.
The Refinery's bargain prices are set to attract students from the nearby University of Minnesota, but anyone who can accept not being as cosseted and cocooned as in an expensive salon can take advantages of their services. Just remember the experience in the spa is short compared to the time you'll enjoy your smooth skin, glossy hair or pampered toes.
