I honestly don't really do five star reviews, but Sasha was pretty close. I went to Sasha last night for a pedicure with a friend, and though it was a little pricey, the staff was friendly and definitely knowledgeable, and they put up with us chatting away like mad.
Sasha was also very clean and I didn't feel any concern whatsoever about the equipment being sanitary and safe for my use, and I admit, that's a big thing for me. I've been tentative to try my local pedi places for that very reason, and I had no issues. The service took about 30 minutes, but they allocate 45, and they recommend 20 minutes of drying time for pedis. No one else was there, so we definitely took that much or more, and my toes look just as lovely this morning as they did when she finished. The one thing that they do that's different is use an electric sander (like a tiny version of the household tool) on the bottoms of your feet. I flinched a lot because I'm super ticklish, but she was very patient with me, and my callouses are gone, something I'm not sure I could ever say. It was not at all painful, and my feet feel like they haven't been city tromping all the time, which is pretty impressive. Nail treatment-wise, she was very thorough and detailed, and there was no messiness with my nails, so I felt like the nearly $40 pedi was pretty much worth it.
I'm really glad I tried Sasha out, and I will certainly be going back!
Great place. Went to sashas to do my nails and was amazed. Great staff very attentive. Marilene was great and did my nails perfectly. Would really recommend it.
I've been going to Sasha Salon and Spa once a month for a manicure, pedicure and facial. I look forward to seeing Nadia (for facial) and Olga (for nails) as the highlight of my week, and maybe my month!
Olga is such a lovely person and somehow manages to make my gross feet look great. I'm losing one of my toe nails (it's all black and blue, yuck, I know) and she even managed to get that one looking good! Not only does she do such a great job with my nails, but she's so nice listening to me gab about the details of my life. I should be paying her to be my therapist or life coach. haha
As for Nadia, she is also very sweet and gives an excellent facial. One of the things that I like best about her facials is that she has a sixth sense for which pimples are ready to be extracted and which aren't, thus allowing any break outs to heal as they should. In the past I have had some very painful extractions that I'm certain made the problem worse. In general I don't break out nearly as much since I started going to Nadia. This week she gave me a very nice shoulder massage, which was amazing since I was so stressed. I also HIGHLY recommend getting a glycolic peel. It is very reasonably priced (only $20 more with a regular facial) and my skin is so smooth and glowing.
My experience at Sasha has made me realize how important it is to me to have people who care about me working on my skin. Sure, it is easy to justify going to Sasha because of the quality and price, but it's Nadia and Olga that make me excited for my next appointment. I only hope that the owner (manager?) of the Salon values the fact that Nadia and Olga are so personable. The owner could learn from Nadia and Olga and start talking to clients instead of hovering over the poor receptionist at all times.
Long story short, if you live or go to school in the area, you should become a regular customer here. These lovely ladies will take good care of you.
I am in LOVE with Lena!! I just got the whole kit n caboodle taken off for the first time and she made me feel so zen and relaxed, it was crazy! I have been getting waxes since I was 18 and have never had it as easy as I did and I usually leave a landing strip. Treat ya'self and get this done as pain-free as it gets. Seriously.
AMAZING experience I had at Sasha. Lilian did a fantastic job! She was very professional, personable, and knowledgeable. I will def. be going back to see her and would recommend her to anyone.
Very good wax, but not the fastest – I've had a number of brazilian waxes at Sasha Salon, including my first ever wax. The staff is very nice, soothing and really made me feel comfortable when I first went it.
The estheticians are very thorough with the waxing, making sure to tweeze after waxing to try and do the best job, which I appreciated, however, every wax I got took approximately 20-25 minutes, which is too long, in my opinon. Certainly, I recommend the salon if you want a meticulous waxing/tweezing.
I probably went here for about a year, but since have found a better place for brazilians that is faster and cheaper.
Perfect place!! – Great location!!! Atmosphere was great. Music was great. The service was great. I went there and saw Erica for a facial and a wax. She gave the best massage! She also answered all of my questions regarding my hormonal breakouts and had some great recommendations for products to use. I bought a moisturizer that my skin is addicted to! I will definitely return. Curious to find out how the massages are...any ideas?
best spa in cambridge! – Went to sasha for the first time today and saw Paula. Very friendly reception, unlike other I went to Cambridge last week. I had laser hair removal and Paula made me very comfortable and was very knowledgable about the laser hair removal. Answered all of my question, I already booked my next facial and laser appointment. She's great!
Best wax ever, 0 pain – This is the ultimate place to get a bikini wax. Cristin did mine and she was super friendly and professional. You can almost fall asleep because the process is so painless. It's AMAZING! I'm never going to back to the other place I used. The wax at Sasha's is of great great great quality, no strips!!! Amazing!
