Best salon in San Francisco. Dolci is the best nail/beauty salon in San Francisco! Their menu pricing is inexpensive/competitive (services such as waxing, facial & mani-pedi). This boutique salon is clean, friendly, warm & inviting yet professional. Also, they do not pressure the customers for an up-sell/add-on service. Dolci is a top notch salon that would be extremely successful in Los Angeles or NYC neighborhood. (Trust me I am metropolis woman!) They?ve expanded to Potrero Hill so maybe they'll sweep the nation after that :) That's how good they are!!!
Cute place, Prefect work on the mani and pedi!. Such a cute place to go too. If you need to throw a bridal party or a lil GNO (girls night out) this would be the prefect place. Very clean. Friendly atmosphere. Want to get your mind off of things, prefect place to escape to for an hour.
Inexpensive and quality service. I had nails, waxing, and facials done at Bliss. The girls who work there are very nice. The service is wonderful. I left feeling relaxed and pampered. The place is a GREAT find...especially for the inexpensive prices. There's always a variety of magazines to browse through. The place is very clean and nicely decorated. The message chairs are wonderful while you get your pedicure. Will definitely go back!!
I would NEVER go back.
I live in the neighborhood, and was psyched to see a cute, inviting spa. So, on a slow saturday I walked in. I sat for a very, very long time and once I finally did get help, the woman cut my cuticle past the quick and then tried to cover it up!! I had to ask her if she realized I was BLEEDING. I tried to overlook this, it was a new spa, what's one slip? Then, during the eyebrow wax, the woman got wax all over my eyelashes....
The level of incompetence was horrifying.
NO WAY!!!. I just dont get it. Ive been to Bliss (now renamed Dolci) two times and both times the manicures and pedicures have been overpriced and below average. The staff is friendly but the decor is decent at best and the prices are just plain old insulting. This is a neighborhood joint that is attempting to be swank. Go somewehere else.
Lower Haight's Hidden Secret. I was wondering in the Lower Haight area and pondered into this cute spa. Once I walked into the shop, I was greeted by the warm and friendly receptionist. This place shines with charm and warmth. It's decor reminds me of the trendly spas I once frequented in New York City. There was absolutely no long wait for my service (pedicure) and I was served immediately. Ask for special designs for your pedicures, the nail technician there is an absolute artist!!
When are salon owners going to get it?.
If you want a mani/pedi where the manicurist communicates with you by impatient hand signals, this is the place for you! Memo to salon owners: Women going in for a mani/pedi do NOT want the person who is performing the service to natter on in a foreign language with her co-workers and pay absolutely NO attention to the customer! That might not sound too PC, but it is the truth! Respect, people, it IS a service industry! Maybe a hello, please, thank you???
Decor: fine, but really, who cares? I just want a decent experience over decor. The place seemed sanitary enough, but they could clean up the common areas. The employees were disinterested and sullen. I felt like a machine they were working on, and reluctantly at that.
Service with a smile? NOT!. I don't get it? This place gets so much press from Citysearch, and Splendora so i decided to check it out. I was NOT impressed? What's all the fuss about? The staff was not friendly, which was surprising because it was not busy at all the day i was there. The girl that did my pedicure acted like i was really putting her out, when i asked her to file my toenails shorter, and more rounded. She barely buffed them, and if you've got callouses? Forget about it, there's no special treatment here. The spa chairs aren't great, and the water i put my feet into was cold. Bottom line...there was nothing "spa-like" about my Spa pedicure? I could've let the atmosphere slide, but because of the unfriendly staff this place rates pretty low in my books!! This was one of Citysearch's Top 10? More like top worst!
Not a good manicure. It's nearby and didn't seem like a quickie shop but it was just that. When I walked in it was almost silent, and nobody even said hello. The manicurist sawed my nails with a file (they should have been clipped a bit first). As she filed one into a pointy shape with no corner I told her I wanted them squared off a bit more...then she did exactly the same thing to the next nail. I filed one to show her how to not file off the edges. The cuticle trimming was more like digging--it hurt and didn't look right. She didn't seem to know what she was doing (had she given a manicure before?). I fixed them later. I've thought about trying a pedicure because of the cool chairs but I don't think I'll risk it. And I wouldn't recommend a manicure here even if it were free.
Best pedicure in SF. Every spa in SF wants to pretend it has an "East Coast feel". Well, I'm a native NYCer and I'll tell ya, most of the mani/pedis in this town are totally substandard and those sloppy nail techs would be booted out of any reputable day spa in Manhattan. The exception in this city is Bliss Beauty Lounge. Finally, a pedicure that lasts over three weeks! And customer service that rocks - honesty and timeliness- rarities in the super flakey west coast spa world. PLUS - it's not super fancy, over-the-top trying to be too trendy. They are real and really good at what they do. And the place is always immaculate. Bliss Beauty Lounge has it down and for that, they've got my business.
