I have been to other Aveda salons, but honestly, I never really got the "hype". That all changed the 1st time I stepped into Blossom Salon. Michelle and her team make every interaction, every service feel special. It goes far beyond the Aveda products, tea, and oils they offer though. What Michelle has created at Blossom is an extension of her personal belief in excellence, and making every customer feel like they are the only person in the shop. Finding someone you can trust to deliver consistent, quality hair care is not easy. Finding a salon where you can get that service without all the (unfortunately) typical salon drama is even more difficult. Michelle and her team ensure that Blossom *is* that needle in the haystack and that every customer experience is exceptional. I know most people enjoy getting their hair done, but an appointment at Blossom is SO much more. Its a wonderful, relaxing visit with friends that just so happens to let me leave looking far better than I did walking in.
Its fantastic! However Tien in the pedi/mani section is really difficult to work with. She rushes you to get out. Last time I had my pedi because of it, she chipped it as it was not even dry. Its uncomfortable to be around her. Her personality and communication skills are not the best and very hard to understand her. I cant understand anything she says. I usually ask for the ymore senior one. But Tien got herself involved again with me. She also overwhelms you by almost obsessing by putting your shoes on and to talk to you and wanting to when you just want to be left alone and relax. Leave the nails dry! And if I ask for the senior one who does nail art theres a reason who is great! Only reason I gave it 3 stars or the hair stylists are amazing and should receive 4 stars! Plus the office manager and owner are always pleasant! Unfortunately I will find another place for my pedi but will still do my hair here!
I had a bridal make up and updo by Sasha. It was a wonderful experience as Sasha was punctual to begin with, and both hair do and make up were done in timely manner. Because of that I was able to have spare time to go home and eat breakfast before heading out. Ive received countless complement on my make up. During our trial, I asked Sasha to do a natural look and as a result it was really "natural". My eyes didnt pop up as much (being asian with squinty eyes). However when I gave her the feedback about changing it to smokey I was a bit nervous as it wasnt whats done during trial. But it turned up super nice. The false lashes were applied nicely and not irritating my eyes. I did have to find my own lashes as I wanted them to look thicker and natural. The updo was done in maybe 40min, and it was beautiful. Not to mention the rate she gave me at $75. I could not ask for more.
Michelle sets the bar high by creating a lovely, relaxing oasis for personal services in San Mateo. The salon has a spa-like atmosphere, but with current music to keep the energy flowing. Her staff is friendly, polite and service- oriented. The salon is well-appointed, clean and stylish, with up-to-date equipment. It is associated with Aveda and offers nail, hair and facial services. I go for nails and the occasional facial. The nail stations are clean, with instruments sanitized in individual packages. Id prefer autoclaved instruments, but that is my only suggestion for improvement. Ive gone to other salons but Blossom is by far the best experience of all.
We recently moved to Foster City and I was looking for a new nail salon. I found Blossom via Yelp and decided to take my 3 year old daughter there for her first pedicure. My mom and mother in law also came with. We all loved it there. The nail technicians were really friendly and so patient with my lively 3 year old. Shes already asking to go back to "color her fingers" too. Well definitely be back! The salon was clean, we were greeted immediately by both nail technicians as well as another lady (I think she was the owner?). The tea was lovely too and the price was great. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Wonderful! I called when they opened to schedule an appointment for hair and nails, and it was friendly, fast and easy. When I arrived, Tristar greeted me with hot herbal tea and analyzed my hair and went to work. I am sensitive to heat and chemicals and not once did I feel my scalp burn or in pain. The hair cut and style was stunning, thank you Tristar!! I didnt get the name of my nail stylist but the tools they used on me came in a sanitized and sealed pouch, the staff were extremely friendly, gentle with my nails and did a beautiful job. :-) I will recommend this salon and spa to anyone in San Mateo.
Every time I come home from college, a visit to Blossom is always on my to-do list. Right when you walk through the doors, the front desks are friendly and Michelle C, my stylist, is, as always, already waiting for me. I call her my stylist but she is honestly my style guru. Michelle has been taking care of my hair for years. I love how she is able to recommend as well as execute every cut and color and it always look amazing, is low maintenance and compliment my skin tone and facial structure. Highly recommend Michelle, from a very happy client!
Convenient online scheduling service and nice location. The basic womens cut includes a massage, Aveda products (which smell amazing), and easy instruction on how to style your own hair at home. I would highly recommend Tristar. He did a fantastic job on my hair! He is incredibly skilled and experienced and having thick hair (and having spent hours in "the chair" before) I appreciated how fast he cut my hair but how he took extra time to show me how to style it properly.
I go to Blossom for my gel manis - they are perfect every time. High quality and comfortable service - my gel nails last for a good 3 weeks (which is unusually long as far as gel nails go). This is a well maintained, clean and classy salon. All the staff is kind and courteous and its so easy to make an appointment. My best kept secret in San Mateo!
Very nice salon and friendly staff. My hair looks like great everytime I go to this salon! The Aveda products smell nice and leave my hair looking and feeling healthy. They have the most comfortable chairs in the washing station and dont leave you with a sore neck like most other salons. The facials are awesome! Highly recommended!
I love Blossom Salon and Spa. I go to get my hair highlights and cut regularly. Michelle is amazing. As soon as I walk in the door I feel relaxed and know Im going to be taken care of : ) Ive also had my nails done and a facial here. I highly recommend Blossom Salon and Spa!
Have no fear, gentlemen, this is a place for you, too. Scalp, neck, shoulder massage, haircut and hot towel. Nice to get this done after a workout at Crunch. Sam gives me a great cut. Everyone there is friendly and service oriented. Highly recommended.
