First I have to say NEVER have this procedure done there, go to Eyelash Connection. Second, if you have any other work done there, pay by credit card so you can dispute the charg...

The staff was very friendly and accomodating 8/5/2011

My husband gave me a gift certificate for a day of wellness at L'essence. I knew I was in for a treat when i drove up to the salon... a historical, victorian house, really beautiful. They use AVEDA products exclusively, which I personally love, (I'm a bit of a tree hugger). The staff was very friendly and accomodating, the treatment rooms were very nicely appointed and all very different and the spa services... excellent. I definately didn't feel like just a number here, they took time to find out my expectations and fullfilled them. They have a third floor spa relaxation/waiting area, that would be perfect for a girls night out. My color and haircut was exactly what I'd hoped for with the added benefit of a shoulder massage, hand massage and a little touchup of my makeup! I'll definately be back, Thank you, L'essence for making me feel special! more

L'essence (more specifically Michelle) is the absolute best! 8/4/2011

I am really picky about my eyebrows and have gone to a bunch of different salons to have them waxed, but L'essence (more specifically Michelle) is the absolute best! She is a perfectionist who never disappoints me. Everyone at the salon is very friendly, making my experience there always enjoyable. I have also had some other treatments there including facials and massages and they have always been pleasant as well. more

I love the Aveda products they use 8/3/2011

I love the Aveda products they use, its a relaxing salon and the people are friendly and nice. I love the scalp massages that Jennifer gives. more

PERFECT!! 7/28/2011

I love and cant wait to go to my Hair and Nail appts. Jennifer has done my hair for over 3 years now and is always the best. Jessica does my gel nails and they are PERFECT!! I love the whole Zen atmosphere. Front desk girls are great. Always willing to help out and real friendly. I recommend this Salon to everyone!! more

This is one of my favorite places 7/28/2011

This is one of my favorite places in town to indulge myself. The staff are always so friendly, and they take great care of their customers, especially returning or frequent ones. I just had my hair cut and highlighted over the weekend with Jeannie, and my friends and family all said it was their favorite cut and color they've ever seen on me. Prior to that, their favorite was the LAST time Jeannie did my hair! As far as body treatments go, there are better places in town if you are looking for the true "day spa" experience, but their technicians are amazing. I am a self-proclaimed spa whore, so if I'm going to treat myself to something on vacation or have extra money, I will usually get a massage. And I have to honestly say that the best massage I've had anywhere in my life was the chakra balance massage given by Desiree. I think I actually had an out of body experience during it! Yeah, the prices are higher than most of us middle class slobs can afford, but it's worth it to me. Sure, I could get a cheaper cut and color at a Snip-in-the-box shop, but the overall experience is so much better at L'Essence. I can relax, have a glass of wine, and get into girlie mode. I have a massage, facial and pedi booked this weekend with my sister, and we just can't wait until our girls day! more

L'essence is clean and neat 7/26/2011

I have thick, course, wavy hair and MINDY does a fabulous job with my cut and color. L'essence is clean and neat and it always smells great! Look forward to my appointments. more

I really feel pampered here! 7/25/2011

I've been going to L'essence for five years now. I love the atmosphere at this Victorian House and I always get great color and cuts! I've never had a problem with parking and have parked on the street or in the back of the salon where there are a few private parking places. There is also a free lot directly across the street, however I've always found parking on the street right next to the salon. I really feel pampered here! more

Very fun and energetic 7/22/2011

I see Michelle for facials and waxing. She's great! Very fun and energetic. I have not received any other services there. The prices are a little high but a nice place to go to be pampered. Parking is kind of a pain. If you are not lucky enough to find street parking right by, you'll have to park across the street. more

L'Essence saved me!!! 7/21/2011

L'Essence saved me!!! Before I went there, I had a few bad haircuts in a row and then an atrocious one from a friend who was newly out from school.. Geannie, who has given beautiful cuts and styles every time, gave me a complete hair-makeover and made it possible for me to sleep again. I really like this salon, everyone is highly skilled, great atmosphere. I have a friend who gets great colorings from another stylist. This last haircut has lasted me about 3 months since I'm trying to grow my hair out. The products are wonderful as well at this salon. I go in confident that I will be satisfied, that is a great feeling. more

you really get what you pay for here! 7/21/2011

have looked for so long to find a decent hair salon. I finally found one. L'essence is in a beautiful Victorian house and Mo is a fantastic hair- dresser. Mo takes her time with my hair so I don't feel like I'm being rushed and that I don't matter. L'essence is a bit pricey but you really get what you pay for. more

never left unhappy 7/20/2011

I have been a client at L'essence Salon for 10 years now and have never left unhappy. My stylist, Jeannie has been doing my hair for the last couple of years now and I LOVE the way she does my color. She does a nice cut as well. I have also received massage services (Desiree is awesome), facials, eye brow waxing, pedicures and have always left a happy, pampered camper. more

Wonderful 7/19/2011

I have been going there for salon services for over a year now. I see Michelle and she is wonderful. She is amazing at the brows and the facials are lovely. more

I had the best stylist, my hair looked great 7/11/2011

I live in Texas and made a reservation over the phone to get my hair styled here as we were getting married in a very simple ceremony in Reno. I had the best stylist, my hair looked great and I really enjoyed my time here. My "home" salon is an Aveda salon and I was not dissapointed. more

have not had a bad experience since 7/8/2011

Alright, where to begin with this place! I have been going here for about a year and a half and have not had a bad experience since. I see Amber (hairstylist) and she has done a phenomenal job. I usually just tell her an idea of what I want and then tell her to do whatever she wants to make it look good. I figure she's the hairstylist and will do what's right. I get the tea or red wine depending on the time of day, and have a biscotti or two which is a nice touch. Amber also uses the hot towel when conditioning which I love. I have gotten massages here (Desiree was very good). I also LOVE Aveda products. Sure, they're more expensive but I wash my hair less often and have better quality. It keeps my color looking so fresh I don't have to go get it done for at least 8 weeks. A month or so ago I had bought the volumizing shampoo and hated it after a month, and they let me bring it back to exchange for another of the Color Conserve. That was extremely nice!!! I hadn't used that much of it and am a loyal customer and it was nice to be treated well. To cut down on cost of getting hair done I signed up for their email list and every week they send you a 20% off last minute appointments. I call when I get the email and see if there is an opening. There almost always is and that is how I save. I can pay 20% tip because I'm getting 20% off! LOVE it. more

I would highly recommend Tiffany. 7/6/2011

I've been seeing Tiffany for gel nails for a year now, after a former co-worker recommended her. Though I used to work in the downtown area, I no longer do; the salon is now way out of my way. But continuing with Tiffany has proven well worth the few-miles' drive. It didn't take me long to realize that it was okay--in fact Tiffany preferred it--to insist that she do my nails exactly as I want them, in terms of length, shape, color. (It's so nice not to be condescended to and put down for my persnickitiness!) She is not only highly professional and an expert at her craft, she's very comfortable to be with and has an easy and relaxed warmth. (I would want no less from someone who holds my hands for an hour at a time, but it sure is great not to be taken for granted.) I also like that there are no chemical fumes in this nail salon. (Apparently, all Aveda salons are this way, but it's been an improved experience for me.) I've also had Tiffany do two spa pedicures, which were a wonderful indulgence--the ultimate in relaxation, aesthetics and attention to detail. Oh, and I've had a massage as well--heavenly! I have found Suzanne (the Irish receptionist), as well as the other receptionists, staff, and even the owner, to be welcoming and professional as well. When I call in to make a schedule change, I'm always treated with total understanding and accommodation, rather than as a "PITA." L'Essence isn't the only salon I use (I have my hair done elsewhere--longstanding relationship with my hairdresser--and the same is true of my skincare/facials), but my experience with the salon has always been very positive, and I'm sorry I haven't written a review sooner. (Human nature usually dictates that we sound off about situations or services we DON'T like; we're not as inclined to cheer when a service has been satisfactory or exemplary.) I enjoy going to this historic house, where I'm always welcomed and pampered, and I would highly recommend Tiffany. more

Totally recommend this salon. 7/5/2011

I have been a steady client of Jennifer's for 5+ years. I would not consider going to any place else. She does miracles with my hair. The building is very old de reno classic. The stAff friendly. Mindy did my friends hair and did a great job. Totally recommend this salon. more

I've found the staff to be extremely friendly 7/1/2011

I've gone here to get my bangs trimmed and to get a Brazilian wax. I've found the staff to be extremely friendly. My actual waxing experience was great - very little pain and a really nice aesthetician. more
