  • 5 star review  Shobana is a thorough professional and very talented. She is great for waxing, threading, hair color touch-up, but most importantly, if you enjoy a good Shahnaz facial with an amazing, long facial massage (which my salon in Palo Alto falls short on) Shobana is your go-to. It totally relaxes me - sometimes I fall asleep! She accepts Venmo too!

  •   They used to have great friendly service. For past three visits, as soon as you walk-in, the greeting is "do you have an appointment?" One time, my eyebrow was cut short. When I pointed out, she said "it's Friday, I'm too busy, and you did not make an appointment". I only go there for eyebrow threading, its difficult to plan out a 15 min appointment in advance every other week.

  •   I am in love with this place.  Came here with Groupon, and discovered the bestest beauty studio ever!  Shobhana's artistic skills and expertise took years off my face via eyebrow threading.  LOVE the new look, gone are the wayward brows that misbehave and make me appear droopy.  

    Hello, brows that are perfect, lifts up my face - the hubby approves. This is the place to go, my friends and fam visited her and and thanking me.  If you're reading this on the week of May 7, come in for any service, she will give you a free mini succulent arrangement for Mother's Day.  That's how fantastic Shobhana is!

  •   Please stay away from MONICA!

    I took my 13 year old daughter to this salon yesterday 08/12/2019  to get her eyebrows done ( just cleaned up) and my usual lady wasn't there. My daughter needed them done BADLY just one day before school pictures so we went with another lady named MONICA. She completely RUINED her eyebrows . They are uneven and have some bald spots now. I'm trying  to fill them  in ( using pencil ) until they grow out but they're still looking awful!

  •   So first, let me just say how important brown representation in the beauty industry is. I am SO glad this place exists. Most beauty salons can't meet my needs because they don't have the right shade for my skin tone or they don't understand what works best with my color or what'll show up or look good on my features. This was the exact OPPOSITE experience. They know what they're doing and are very inclusive of different skin colors and features. I got a ton of services done in the span of three days for a wedding:

    Threading: 5/5 my eyebrows are already relatively thin, so i didn't want it shaped or changed much; after they did it, it was so clean and fresh. the difference was noticeable with minimal pain!

    Henna: so with henna, they have one woman, Shelly, who does it - she was professional and did well, but the henna didn't show up at all on the back of my hands (completely blank, though i left it on for a night). the reason they still receive 5/5 is for how they handled the situation - they offered to redo it and dealt with it professionally. the front of my hands still show! the issue was with the cones themselves, but after this incident, I'm confident it'll be fixed.

    Hair wash: good, typical - I don't have too much to review, but it felt nice afterwards! Not sure of the brands they use for washing.

    Hair style: 5/5 honestly probably my favorite part - they did SUCH a wonderful job. I got my own hair done here twice and so did my mom and aunt. The pictures say it all - they had excellent attention to detail and made sure the hair stayed in place. they also offered many suggestions for the hairdos to make it look good with my outfits. they used lovely floral pins and made clean and pretty braids - and used a lot of bobby pins. it stayed through performances and dancing the whole night, but wasn't too much of a struggle to take out.

    Saree tying: 5/5 Shobhana Aunty was the one who tied it - she made beautiful pleats for me, my mom and aunt, though mine came out easily; it was clean and the rest of theirs stayed on the whole day.  They also did it for my cousin, whose look was simple and stayed in place.

    Make-up: 5/5 the three of us also got our make up done. my mom looked WOW; she looked very young. my make up also looked amazing - especially the eye shadow! The eye makeup had to last two different outfits, so she did well in picking colors that would go with both.
    It lasted the entire night, and the quality of make up used was fantastic. It honestly felt like a facial with how she massaged and moisturized my skin first. I didn't realize how many layers of foundation were put on, but I looked much, much older than I am. If you aren't used to that much make up, I would ask to tone it down. My aunt did ask for her look to be muted and not as out there, so they did a great job with her expectations.  The make up look was definitely very, very mature - Shobhana Aunty clearly knows what she's doing, so although I haven't taken her make up class, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. She also could tell what foundation to use off the bat, and the color choices were great. I would be happy to show pictures if asked!

    Overall, this was a friendly and welcoming environment. The inside is beautiful and clean, with classy interior. They didn't hesitate to make us feel at home - even gave us chai! They aren't open on Sundays but made an exception after getting to know my mom for the actual wedding day, which we both appreciate very much. The service was incredible, professional, and well done. DEFINITELY see them if you get a chance, for whatever service; they also offer massages and facials I believe. I'll definitely be back for any occasion when I'm in town, and I hope this convinces you this place is worth it!

    Highly, highly recommend.

  •   Relatively new place. I came in for threading and waxing on a Tuesday around 6-6:30pm no appointment. Shobhana was wonderful. I called ahead before I came.

    Shobhana made me feel welcome and at ease. She is very precise in threading your eyebrows how you want them.

    Waxing wasn't bad at all! It didn't hurt as much because she has a light hand. The end result was exactly what I wanted. I will be back again. It's a great location up by club sport area off of Bollinger Canyon.
