The Quest For Beauty!
A nice Time Management game where you start with a bare minimum and buy more equipment with the stars you earn until you have a 5 star boutique. there are two options with this game, Story mode (timed) and Endless mode (one level after another) Your customers come in with an icon as to what they want such as shampoo, so you click and drag that customer to the washing station and click again to have Stella wash their hair. As you progress, you will hire an employee to wash hair. Then you click and drag that customer to the hair styling booth and click again for Stella to cut and style their hair. Next step is the wardrobe closet where you will see a picture of what the customer is currently wearing and a picture of what outfit she wants, so you click on all the correct items she wants. The final step is the cash register that you click on so that Stella can collect the money. Then with the stars you earn you get to buy an upgrade such as a spa and designer shoe booth etc, When a customer wants shoes you click and drag them to the shoe station and click on the two matching shoes. Each level gives you more customers as well as more tasks to follow and more equipment, so this is kind of a stressful game, so make some coffee and make people beautiful, enjoy!

I am a time manager and this is one I play over and over. I bought this game on another site about three months ago, and I am still playing. If you like games like Sally's Hair Salon or similar games, then you should love this game, Challenging! Enjoy fellow gamers!

Classic Time Management Adventure!
Truly wonderful game! There are unique twists, like incense you can use once per level to give all customers a mood boost. Also, if two customers want each other's stations, you can drop one on the other and they'll switch. There are lots of upgrades, including two speed-ups for the main character and employees that help customers automatically. Best of all, the characters are fun and the story gives them reasons to open new stores. Sequel, please!

I loved, loved, this game! This is EXACTLY how it is in a beauty shop!! If your child wants to work in a beauty salon when he / she grows up have him/her play this game to know how it REALLY is!!! TWO thumbs up for reality !!!

What a fun/blast of a game! I recommend!
After reading a lot of the reviews, I didn't think I would like it and almost didn't purchase it, but after purchasing & playing it really is fun and challenging.
Some people posted latency in the cursor/clicks; i experienced that as well and found out turning off the custom cursor in the options menu did the trick.
And yes, painfully slow Stella goes faster as you upgrade her, you can also upgrade all her co-workers, Mae, Lily, and Grace. Also for those upset with the speed of the first few levels (zones) try planning your actions in advance, you know that the customer will want to go to the dressing room, send Stella there before (or while) you drag your customer.
Another thing I like about this game (more than Sally's Salon) is you can queue up a set of tasks (for Stella et. al) and while your choosing shoes they will continue with their tasks in the background.
The incense seems to be a big deal as to whether you get 3 stars or less. Use it when you're toward the end of the level or, when you have a large number of people ready to check out if you're short.
I'm really not sure why the person gave this game 1 star after completing all the levels at 3 stars and still not having all the upgrades. My usual complaint is the opposite! I have all the upgrades and want more!
I'm not all the way thru the game but it's a blast, and the storyline is entertaining!

not so difficult to reach goal 3 stars, each time you make an upgrade go back to the level where you have 2 0 1 star and you can reach goal most easily. good game

Great Styling Game!
This game was a little more challenging than it first appeared when I started it. I finished the entire game and I can't wait to play it again. I love styling, salon and spa games! And this is a great one. Basically, collect enough stars to get to the next level. One is the lowest and three is the highest Use your stars to upgrade your salon. You get a lot of customers and you get to change salon location a few times. I finally figured out that the incense can change your entire game. Figure out the best time to light it and it will make it easier for you to win your stars. Cute characters and great graphics! Love it!

My Favorite Kind Of Game!
At first I thought it was too hard... but after I started over a few times I found that it is possible to make it. Personally I think it's for time management die hards though... It's tough! You'll like it if you enjoy a very good challenge. Take breaks if you get frustrated or over tired. I just love this game .. BUT... I wish it was a bit (ok.. a lot) easier)

Nice change from diner dash type pace
My review is based on the demo, before I knew it the demo had finished, and I was just starting to get into it! :(
Yes the beginning starts off a little slow...I don't understand why another reviewer said there was no story line :/
I do like the idea of starting with no stars and having to build them up instead, a bit more of a challenge, yes she doesn't zoom around like diner dash and such, but I didn't mind that either. I'm going to purchase this with a game credit because I am determined to get 3 stars on each level!! :p
