if i could, i would give them 10 stars out of 5 stars!!! 

tierra mia's name kept popping up, (yelp's weekly email about pedis and they were also a vendor at yelp's homegrown party) so i figured i would try them out. i am personally trying to live greener, so this salon sounded great. 

i went on good friday. definitely make sure you give yourself enough time to find parking if you are driving. there is a lot across the street, but i like the hunt for a parking space. from the moment you walk in, you know that this place is practicing what it states on its website. everyone was genuinely friendly when i entered the salon. 

my first service was an underarm waxing. i have found that this service can tell you if you will or will not like the waxer. april was great! and so is the product they use. i have sensitive skin, so i can get burned/irritated easily from the wax/waxer. the wax was not super hot which i loved. she was gentle. i will definitely return for more delicate waxing at another time...

i was happy to see there were only two mani stations and one pedi station. i dislike feeling like cattle herded thru your typical nail salon. karina was great, also!! my mani and pedi experience was soothing and relaxing. some have complained about the selection of colors or longevity of the polish. i personally don't usually leave polish on for very long. once it chips, off it goes. i like my nails to have time to breathe. i loved that the polish did not stink to high heaven!!

i will return to this salon! it is worth every penny!!
