All salon inspections are available to the public, but not all salons are inspected the same way. i work in a very busy salon and our inspecter is always very hard on us. i have also been in a shop that belongs to a friend when she inspected them and all she did was make sure their salon license was current. Didnt check in any drawers or look at any barbicide. my friends shop is clean, but for her to not even check is not fair. There is a difference in sanitary and clean. you can be written up for having dust on equipment that is not even in use (state law requires you to clean this equipment before and after each use, if it is not used very often that doesn't mean that it wont be cleaned before it is used again). taking your own equipment is a very good idea, but make sure you clean your own stuff too because bacteria can still grow. ALL salons should be following sanitary rules all the time, and a list of these rules should be available to all clients. if you don't know what they are, ask for the current book of rules and regs. look up the local salons and find one that you feel safe going to but remember it may be that the inspector just didnt look at that particulat salon as well as she did others

Hey, at least they attempted a local story. News happens all the time in Jonesboro, but do you see it reported or news at the scene. No. If you go to their website the stories are either AP or out of MO. The Sun really isn't much better! But because of this story, I am going to warn my mother because she gets het nails done at one of those shops.

My Mom and I both went to one of the salons
mentioned. when we removed the nail polish
from our toenails we had white spots under them.
Scared me enough that I haven't been back.
It's very important to sterile not only nail
tools but the foot bath as well.

How long has that been? It takes a while before you realize that you have a toenail fungus. It's been 2 years since I got a toenail fungus from a pedicure and I'm just now getting my toenail back. I did polish, ointment, pills, then had my toenail removed. It's been a nightmare. Good luck to you and your mom. Mine did not come from either one of these salons.

Its hard to blame a pedicure alone on a foot fungus because it takes a while to know for sure if that is what the problem is and you can get it from a hotel shower, a pool, locker room or borrowing shoes. Not to dismiss that is was from a pedicure, it very well may have been. Maybe that is just a risk we take not doing our own nail grooming.

I totally agree that salons should practice better sanitary procedures. I also agree that Jeannie Bonds is in violation of numerous things, to many to mention. But also are, Arkansas Hair Academy, ASU Tech.- Cosmetoloy Dept.- Melinda Odom - way to many to mention. We have a State Board that are suppose to check for the violations but we still have "the good ole boy" system, where bc they have know them for so long and to top it off Jeannie Bonds is trying or is on the State Board of Cosmetology. Diva is another fine place that does not clean there tools between clients. I have even called them on it. What it boils down to is "Money" and "Laziness". Thats the problems with the WHOLE World!!!!!

She shouldn't be picking on just two places. They should have made a list of all salons and their citations. This made two places look bad when I suspect there were others just as bad or close. This could put those two places out of business, leaving others untouched.
I totally agree with you. Who are the others and what are there citations for?

See, that's just one more reason I do my own nails. Apart from the fact that it's insane to PAY someone to do something so simple for you.

I actually think it's kinda funny that the uppity salons in this town had a 'big' story done about them that showed them in a negative light.

I'm not sure what kind of people you think work in those 'uppity salons' but I can tell you. They are hard working girls and women. Many with families they are trying to support. A lot of them have already taken a pay cut because of the economy. They didn't deserve this.

Those salons are 'uppity' because the people who work there have put forth the extra effort necessary to continue their education, become experts in their field and give the kind of customer service that affluent people are willing to pay more for.

You don't get that when you call every salon in the phone book for prices and then choose to go to the cheapest one. You just get what you pay for!

Stop trying to stir stuff up. If you're really that interested, go to any salon and see for yourself.

All salons are required to post their most recent state board inspection report in the salon, with any citations check marked. Big page, 2 columns, single spaced. The cleanest home in Jonesboro would probably get more gigs than the dirtiest salon in town if they were judged on the same criteria.
You betcha

Yeah, anybody out there in topix land have a brush with a hair in it, a drawer with a pack of gum in it, a damp towel that's not in a covered container, a comb that's been used on two different people, dust on an artificial plant or a table that isn't wiped down with alcohol before and after every use? SIX CHECK MARKS,$150 FINE AND IT'S POSTED FOR THE WORLD TO SEE!

That those nail drills they use on acrylic nails to tear up your nail bed before applying the glue and tip are actually illegal in many states- including Arkansas, now tell me when was the last time any nail salon DID NOT use one on you ? Also another good thing to know emery boards and those flip flops and toe seperaters are NOT sanitizable and should be disposed of after every client if the do not take it with them. There is a proper way to sanitize all manicuring and pedicuring implements and yes it does take nore than five minutes. The implements should be washed, and the. Sanitized with something like barbacide or a broad spectrum disinfectant.( they soak In this solution and then are dried an stored) that being said every salon should have enough manicure kits to prevent the temptation of using a dirty kit on customer to save time and turning away a customer. And please the next time one of these idiots tries to use a drill on you, remind them that's a good way to get a pretty nice fine or worse give you a fungus. Every heard of blood born pathogens? Well I know I've been nicked with those drills before and it didn't turn out pretty!
