I've been going to Urban Oasis for years, long before they moved to this great little bungalow that really fits it's name, an oasis in the city. The people have always made the place with their friendly and inviting warmth, as well as their knowledge and expertise. All this without pretentiousness and attitude, as well as great prices. Makes one feel very taken care of -- and this was before the move. Now, on top of all those great things, they have this house surrounded by trees that shelter it from the busy Eastlake Ave outside -- giving it that retreat type feel, but it's SO convenient to all neighborhoods in the city because of it's very central location -- yet very affordable in comparison to other salons this close in. \r
Taking a few hours or day to spend with them, by yourself or on a day of beauty relaxing with your friends, is the best treat you could give yourself -- it is for me.
Pros: Ambiance, location, price, parking, friendly service
Cons: normal downsides that come from older building/Bungalow in city
