Find your bliss here 8/13/2010

I discovered Marilyn Jaeger as I was walking back to my car from the nearby gym. I went inside, felt the calm and friendly vibe, and immediately made an appointment for a facial. The service was wonderful, so I booked a massage with Lily, who I've returned to about half a dozen times in the past year. I'm looking forward to my next massage, and trying more of the great services available. I can't recommend this place highly enough. As the star rating says, "run, don't walk" to make your appointment for bliss. more

High Quality Waxing and Facial with Professional Staff 4/10/2010

Since moving from the east coast, I was doubtful to find another spa where I could continue to have my brazillian done. Then I found MJSS. Not only are the staff professional, they are all friendly, too! I'm always greeted with a warm smile as soon as I walk in the door. I've grown comfortable with their aesthetician Farah who now always does my brazillian. Just recently, my husband and I booked facials with MJSS. Although they do not offer a couple's facial, our experience were oustanding and definitely time well spent. Services at MJSS has always been worth my money, so I hope to continue to come to this spa as long as the quality stays the same or just keeps getting better! Pros: Professional aestheticians Cons: No couples massage/facial service more

wisdom and pampering all at the same time 1/27/2010

I have been to lots of studios that have all successfully sold me products, but here, when Marilyn tells you a product will improve your skin - she is right. Your friends will tell you your skin looks better and wonder what your are doing differently. Beyond skincare, this is the only place in town for eyebrow shaping. Lastly, the space is beautiful - strong and feminine, like Marilyn herself. Pros: knows what's great for your skin Cons: make your appt ahead of time - its a popular place more

Worst Wax Job in the history of Wax Jobs 6/23/2008

I am soooooo confused as to how Marilyn Jaeger Skin Care studio has recieved such rave reviews thus far. I have been getting brazilian waxes for about 6 years. In that 6 years I have lived in 7 cities and been to 7 different salons for this procedure and I can safely say that hands down no contest I recieved the WORST Brazilian wax i have EVER gotten in my ENTIRE life at this salon. Although the staff was quite friendly and attentive (thus the one star) the cost was outrageous and the waxing could be described as nothing better than a hack job. I would estimate that about 75% of the hairs were broken as opposed to pull out completely. When I left the salon my skin was red and rough as though I had shaved it 3 days prior. Upon closer inspection I realized that about 5% of the hairs had been missed completely. And whoever says that this salon does a nearly painless brazilian is out of their mind. I have had much much less painful experiences than this one. All in all I would have to say a free shave in the shower not only would have yeilded better results but would have saved me $90. Quite frankly I wouldn't return if you paid me. Pros: friendly staff Cons: Overpriced, completely unsatisfactory service more

One of the best place for Brazillian Wax 5/25/2008

Ok so I have been going to Marilyn for the past year and let me tell u that she is one of the best brazillian waxer in SF! she is super friendly and has great memory (actually remembered details of my life..even when I see her once every 2 or 3 months! ) she is super fast n yet very detailed especially in getting rid of ingrown hair! she is truly one of the BEST! and let me tell you that it is ALMOST PAINLESS to get a brazillian done with her!! c'mon no waxing is ever painless but with her ALMOST is the word. Also, all the girls that answers the phone are super friendly and very helpful to your needs. Whenever I am late they never told me to go back home but instead they would penciled me in to see Marilyn in less than 15 min! I know that its a drag sometimes to actually missed an appointment and pay for the full amount but really time is money and we as the customers should be considerate enough to realize that there would be OTHER LADIES in the waiting list dying to be in the appointment book. So try Marilyn for yourself n you would never be disappointed =) Pros: Fast, detailed and Almost Painless Brazillian Wax, plus super friendly people and the "Potion" is one amazing product! Cons: Parking could be hard..so give extra 15 min before your appointment time more

My Sanctuary 5/13/2008

I'll admit it - I have been keeping this place under wraps until now. It was hard enough to get an appointment without telling all of San Francisco how great it is. But I'm moving, so the cat's out of the bag! I've been going to see Marilyn and her girls for more than two years. Its one of those rare place where it doesn't matter who you see- they are all friendly, make me feel comfortable, and do a good job. I've had facials and a variety of waxes. I used to only want places that use hard wax, but the ladies at MJ's are quick and the strip wax is never a problem. I never feel rushed, even when I arrive ten minutes late and they should just tell me off and make me reschedule. Some previous reviewers say that the Spa doesn't feel fancy enough... I happen to like that it feels comfortable and homey - I'm never intimidated and it doesn't lend itself to feeling like they only tend to the elite. Everything is always clean and professional - but its the kind of place where the appointment ends with a hug. I love going! Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable rooms & lobby are not sterile, quick waxing but attention to detail Cons: Parking around Laurel Heights is touch and go - no nearby garage more

I go for quality of service, not the free drinks 10/5/2007

I was impressed by the creative apartment-style spa and the tasty champagne. Massage was OK, compared to places of similar pricing I would say a little below par, and they are very high pressure when it comes to sales, for example they insist on using essential oils during the massage that cost an extra $10, i figured they'd include it in the massage, not charge even more for a milliliter of essential oils. Then the Brazilian wax..OMG! The girl who did it (brunette) was very aggressive and made me feel really uncomfortable, she laughed at me for crying and did it very slowly and painfully, for 65$! Even the cheapest salon like Richmond nails in the Richmond dist or Belle Beauty Salon on 7th and Cali, did a cleaner and faster job than her! Then when I was practically bleeding from her services and ready to pay, the girls at the front desk pressured me into buying a "potion" for your "area" that is supposed to heal you up...it burned and made me feel like I had poured 70% vodka on my privates..any old baby powder would have done the trick rather than that! all in all, the place terrifies me! I know they're going for a high class target market, but they need to pick up the services and find better professionals, particularly in the waxing department! Pros: pretty studio, good champagne Cons: pushy staff that sells,sells,sells, and AWFUL waxing more

Love, love, love it!!! 5/30/2007

I have been several times (to the College Ave Salon)... I have had a facial, brow waxing, brow tinting and eyelash tinting. Everytime, I have had AMAZING service!! The staff is wonderful, the building is BEAUTIFUL and the atmosphere is great. I get complemented on my brows all the time and LOVE telling people about the salon. And also, I don't understand why people would complain about the parking, because it is so easy to find spots. The salon is close to a neighborhood with no parking time limit! Pros: Well trained, professional Cons: n/a more

Editorial

  • Don’t be fooled by the softly curved walnut paneling, echo-friendly walls insulated with recycled denim or the lightly tinkling water features; at Marilyn Jaeger Skincare Studio skin is serious business. Like the airport security line (if airport security was designed by a feng-shui expert), this isn’t a good place to make jokes. This is not a spa, and you won’t find steamy dressing rooms with complimentary hair combs and waterfall shower heads. What you will find are knowledgeable aestheticians, state-of-the-art treatment rooms and seriously scientific (and totally glow-inducing) services like the popular Royal Treatment Facial. Waxing, both brow and Brazilian, is what the studio is famous for, and for a small fee Marilyn herself will remove your errant hairs. With 14 years experience and an exacting technique, she is the perfectionist's dream, believing that even one stray hair can change the look of the entire face.
