I booked an appointment for a facial with Sarah for a much needed day of relaxation. The products she used smelled great and worked wonders on my skin. I immediately noticed how much fresher my face looked and felt, and how relaxed I felt from the ambiance and stress-relieving facial massage. A week or so later, I went in for a haircut and style with Wes. I asked him for a recommendation on how to change my hair and he had some great suggestions based on my type of hair and lifestyle. I have never been happier with a cut and style. I have found my new favorite place for all of my beauty treatments!

I moved to San Francisco and have had the hardest time finding a stylist that listens and does exactly what is asked. I have tried other salons and had some very bad experiences. I went to Wes a week before my wedding in hopes he could fix a very bad haircut. He fixed my hair and saved the day.
I recently went back for another cut and this time some color to spice things up a bit.. I had the best experience and so much fun at the same time. Wes is fabulous and made getting my hair done that relaxing, wonderful pampering we all need to do now and then.
I would recommend him to anyone who is new to the city or just tired of getting bad haircuts and color.

I hadn't gotten a facial in over a year. Sarah suggested the 4 Layer Facial. It was very relaxing yet therapeutic. My face glowed for the next week, and I got tons of compliments. No more waiting around, I'm going on a regular maintenance routine. All that seaweed, kelp, and moisturizer are a winning combination. I'm a believer in the 4 layer facial!

I highly recommend Wes of Oh La La Salon on Van Ness Ave in SF. He's a true artist! When I sit on his chair, I know I'm in expert hands and I don't even tell him what to do. He knows what works best with my hair, face and occasion, better than me. I always get compliments after walking out of his salon!
Great personality too, very funny, friendly and personable!
I have been looking for a place to get a facial that isn't too touristy, too expensive or too overbooked...I have found the perfect person and place with Sarah Ambrosek at Oh La La Salon & Spa on Van Ness.
The Oh La La Signature facial I received from Sarah was the best! It was relaxing and rejuvenating all at the same time. The products she used were great, which is tough for me as my face can be really sensitive. The massage of my neck and shoulders, which is included with the facial was divine! Days later my skin still feels smooth and looks wonderful!
I also had waxing done. As I do not wax often, I was a little nervous, but Sarah was gentle, but thorough and I will definitely be back!
The place is cute and the facial room is serene and enjoyable. The service is friendly and accommodating from the time you enter until the time you leave...thanks Sarah and Oh La La!
Call me metrosexual but I'm all about taking care of myself, so when I was walking down Van Ness one day, this vibrant red wall stuck out at me and I peeked in to find this French eclectic space. At first I thought it was a jewelry store, but I quickly realized it was more than that. Wes, the owner was there waving at friendly neighbors as they walked by and the few minutes I was there reading the brochure of services, he had booked about 3 people who seemed liked neighbors in the area. I'd been meaning to get a facial but I've gone to several places that seemed too mainstream and I felt like I was on a conveyor belt (get in, get out, and if you're lucky...you might get some tea). I booked a facial with Sarah. She is very sweet, funny, and professional and did a thorough skin analysis on me. I was really impressed with how relaxed I felt and her amazing service. She didn't push skin care product on me, but talked to me about the products I'm currently using and how to use them. I was clearly doing it all wrong. She really knows her stuff, I'll be back and thanks Sarah for helping my skin and making me feel comfortable!
