- Facebook/Eyes ‘N’ Brows Bury
An eyebrow salon in Bury near Manchester is going viral for all the wrong reasons after a disgruntled former employee hijacked its Facebook page.
Eyes ‘N’ Brows Bury has been inundated with awful but allegedly fake reviews for its “disgusting, mannerless, and foul language” and for its lacklustre pedicures and manicures.
We first noticed the salon after Twitter user Courtney Barrow asked if she could book an appointment for the following day, only to be told to “piss off” by whoever was in control of the salon’s Facebook account.

Her tweet has received more than 3,500 retweets and 23,000 likes at the time of publishing this article.
However, when contacted by Business Insider, salon owner Uzma said that a former employee had hijacked the account and locked her ex-colleagues out. She claims they would “never ever allow that to happen” and that reviews on the page are fake.
“She only worked here for two months. She may be disgruntled. We don’t know if she’s doing it on purpose or if she’s getting people to write these fake reviews.”
They say people have also been turning up to the salon for interviews and appointments that the real owners never arranged.

The reviews on the Facebook page range from the believable to the downright bizarre. While it’s not possible to tell which ones are legitimate and which ones are made up, it’s worth noting that a lot of the reviews come from users who do not live in Bury or the surrounding area.
“Came in for a pedi. The woman doing my nails was eating a greggs sausage roll WHILST doing my nails!!” said one customer on Facebook. “Ended up paying £20 for pastry crumb toe nails. I was fuming. Could of spent 89p on a sausage roll and done it my damn self.”
Another person said she “sat down and the girl took out a bottle of hellman’s mayonaise and started massaging it into my cuticles!!”
At the time of publishing this article, a new one-star review was being left on the page roughly every 10 minutes. Its current rating on the Facebook page stands at 1.2 out of 5 stars.
