Pretty good pedicure – I would go back, although the service had some glitches. I had to wait 30 minutes or so past my appointment time, and then they gave me the regular pedicure instead of the deluxe, which I had scheduled. The pedicure itself was a little rough because (I think) the woman doing it was in a hurry; my big toe was bleeding for about 10 minutes, and a couple of my other toes were red and puffy after the pedicure. It does seem clean, and the staff is nice.
Christina's Manicures are Terrific – The ambiance is absolutely great and peaceful. Prices are a bit higher than most, especially since no special extras are offered unless paid for as in some other salons such as "hot cream" massage and towels.
But, you can be assured the basins are immaculate and tools are hygenic.
Christina has given me the absolute best manicure and pedicure that I've received in the city and her care alone is worth a visit.
not so good – I got brought here by my girl friend for a pedicure and i guess it was ok although i don't have anything to compare it to. But my girlfriend got a facial while i waited and she was ready to cry by the time we left. She was so annoyed with the staff and the facial left marks on her face.
RUDE STAFF – Although the place is cute, the staff is SO RUDE! I came in for an appt on time and ended up waiting 20 minutes before someone helped. While I waited, another lady (more flashy and plastic than I) with the same appt time as myself comes and lo and behold, she gets seated and served immediately. Absolutely rude, by the time someone came to do my manicure, I got up and left. I am NEVER coming here again. The service is awful.
Fabulous Place for Facials – I am in the process of re-locating to San Francisco. I found this place on city seach and so glad that I did . Loryn is the absolute best. She is very detailed oriented and does not cut corners. My skin was absolutely glowing when she was done. She does not try to sell you anything just gives you wonderful results. The mani/pedi was also a delight. Sanitary conditions are few and far between when it comes to nail salon. This is one of few salons that takes it very seriously. I have officially found my new nail salon in San Francisco! Thanks city search
Fabulous manis/pedis – I called for a last-minute reservation for a mani/pedi for myself, my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law. Teashi was happy to accommodate us -- even keeping in mind that we had a 6pm dinner reservation! The space is all light and bright -- with high ceilings, skylights and a window looking out onto Russian Hill foot traffic. Scented candles (for sale) make the place smell terrific. The spa chairs, complete with fat cushions and a foot tub sunken in a pink tile block, are super comfy. My mani and pedi were divine (though I think it's weird when they do that punching your leg technique -- what the heck kind of massage is that?!), and Teashi was even able to seat us all next to each other. Another little touch I loved: Your nail technician gives you a little envelope to place their tip in, which to me is much classier (and less awkward) than just handing them some bills. Although parking in Russian Hill is a pain, I say it's worth the hassle for fab nails at a more-than-reasonable price.
A beautiful nail salon that offers excellent service at a fabulous price. – The Scene
With absolutely gorgeous decor, this Russian Hill spot is a girly girl's paradise. Forget the plain pedicure massage chairs--ultra-comfy, roomy seats will have you relaxed in seconds. In lieu of standard pedicure tubs, your feet soak in a porcelain washbasin set in a pink-hued tile block. Expect to sit in the same comfortable setting for your mani: This place doesn't use manicure tables. The drying station offers a variety of mags and chic Philippe Stark chairs.
Prices for basic nail services are roughly $5 more than bare bones nail salons--a steal since you get high-end spa amenities. You can also indulge in Spa Deluxe treatments, which include mineral salt scrubs and extended massages, or specialized services, such as the Sports-relief Pedi. Health and safety are top priority here, and any tools that can't be properly sanitized in a surgical autoclave are yours to keep or discarded.
Lovely and accomodating – We had such a wonderful time, and the ladies of Teashi were very accomodating. The shop is SUPER clean, and they go the extra mile to keep to strict sanitation standards (standards most salons seem to casually overlook). The employees are extremely careful and also delightfully sweet. We were able to speak to them in both English and their native language, which delighted my tourist cousin. We did not have appointments for bikini waxes, but they were able to fit my friends and I in anyway! The citrus tea is delicious too! Parking is crap, and I got a parking ticket even though none of the other cars did.
This place is not worth it – I went to teashi for mani/pedi w/ some girlfriends. We were very disappointed by the quality of the manicure & pedicure that we received. Not only were our nails painted unevenly, some of the girls' nails were filed too close to the skin, that we were in pain!
The staff were short & rude also and they did not spend time to pamper us. After all, thats why we went to get our nails done & pay $45 right?
Although the place has a nice ambiance, it is not worth the money.
What a Life Saver! – I have been battling adult acne for years. On a recommendation from a friend, I made an appointment with Loryn for a facial. She was awesome! She explained everything thoroughly so that I felt confident in her skills. She also was diligent with extractions...I get so tired of going to fluffy salons that don't clean my pores. I saw that someone was unhappy with her extractions but I can tell you from an acne sufferer, she knows what she's doing. I was a bit red for a couple of days but then my skin looked amazing for weeks. She also put me on a homecare program (without trying to sell me everything under the sun). My skin has never looked so vibrant and clear. And the best part is that she gives an amazing neck and shoulder massage at the end. I can't imagine going to anyone else every again!
