Not only was the front desk as sweet as can be today, I've been coming here for years and everyone has always been nothing short of friendly, welcoming, and professional any time I've visited. Years ago I saw a massage therapist (Jay

I was treated so rudely at the west ashley location by the girls at the front desk. It completely ruined my massage. They have terrible customer service here. I have been to many spas in Charleston and this was terrible. I will NEVER go

On April 6th a new employee Hailey was performing massage theropy. My wife walked into the massage room with iPhone in hand and placed it in her back pocket as she changed leaving her clothes folded and on the floor. When the massage was over and Hailey left the room, my wife dressed and reached for the phone to check emails - it was gone. Hailey had gone. My wife went to the manager and they called the cell phone which immediately rolled into voice mail. They could not reach Hailey who did not wait for a tip.
Although Urban Nirvana recognized that theft is the only possibility - they did nothing to compensate my wife and refused to take responsibility for employee actions. This is wrong on many fronts and I find myself writting my first ever review.
DO NOT GO to Urban Nirvana - they are potentially thieves at the very least dishonest and unresponsive.

I went to Urban Nirvana last month for a Whiplash massage. The whiplash massage includes an application of paraffin over the back and special attention to the neck and back and an extended session of kneading stretching and accupressing by the massage therapist. Since it was my first visit to Urban Nirvana, I had the staff at the front desk pick someone for me. I highly recommend Kathryn. She was fabulous. Anytime you are in Charleston, Columbia, or Greenville, be sure to check out UN. They also have great products and hair salons!

I stumbled upon Urban Nirvana after a yoga class in the Windermere Plaza and am now a loyal customer with Cady. She understands her clients (well, as least me)...she just gets it! She knows how to give a girl a cut that's fun, manageable and not plain...she's a great colorist and I've actually been so pleased, I let her "play" because she always gives me a new, but natural look. I leave feeling great and the cut can be replicated the next day without the help of a stylist! As a girl seriously scarred by a bad haircut as a kid, I never thought I'd get bangs again, but Cady convinced me, gave me a glass of wine and now I LOVE my fun locks! Thanks!

Pros: Great cut for fair price

Cons: Still hard on the budget but you get what you pay for

Urban Nirvana is extremely small with only two treatment rooms and one restroom. The "lounge" area holds two slipper chairs and it is also the lobby so it's not comfortable to relax in your spa robe when anyone can walk in off the street. I am a plus sized woman and was uncomfortable in a too small robe, there are no plus sized robes available. The shoes do not appear to be cleaned between guests, as we were instructed to return our shoes to the shelf. There are only two treatment rooms but 10 very small lockers? It would make more sense to provide larger lockers since the spa cannot accomodate that many people.

I have been getting my hair highlighted for about 14 years and never seen anything like this. I needed a quick cut & highlight and my usual stylist was booked for three weeks so I decided to try Urban Nirvana Hair - HUGE mistake. After a couple of weeks, I started to notice bright blonde spots throughout my hair. I went back to my previous stylist who explained that the spots were called "bleeders", which means that the color seeped out of the foils and highlighted random spots in my hair. I was also informed that there was no way that the stylist at Urban Nirvana Hair could have missed these ridiculous spots during the course of cutting/drying my hair. Apparently this could have been easily corrected, but she was too lazy or too careless to fix the problem. I might as well have thrown $150 in the trash.

Pros: Parking

Cons: Stylists apparently aren't trained well.

I went in to get a cut and have my color refreshed. I had a medium red brown over dark color hair that I had done at a cheaper salon. I wanted a better cut and better color so I came here, where the price is over twice what I paid at the cheaper salon. I said I wanted a slightly lighter color and asked what my options were. The stylist said that highlights would be better than applying color all over, so I said fine. We did not discuss the color of the highlights. I have had highlights done dozens of times before and I was not concerned. Well, imagine my surprise when I find out that the top of my head is 85% platinum blond. It looks very unnatural. I imagine a punk rocker might like this look but I am an older woman and I most definitely do not like it. Furthermore, the stylist gave no indication that she was going to make such a dramatic change. The stylist herself had the most bland hairstyle - long brown hair (which looked nice but none the less was extremely conservative).

I went here because I thought by paying more I would get better results but all I did was throw my money done the drain *AND* I got much worse results than I've gotten anywhere else.

In the past 8 months I have had spa treatments at The Sanctuary Hotel on Kiawah Island, The Ritz Carlton Hotel on Amelia Island, FL and at Urban Nirvana. It's unbelievable how much better the aesthetician was at Urban Nirvana compared to those at the so called 5 star hotels!! Don't even get me started about the difference in cost! It's a great experience and a great location. Enjoy Charleston! Kat

I highly suggest Urban Nirvana. While it is pricy, the staff was friendly and I felt very comfortable there. I felt that my money was well spent. I have never felt as relaxed as I did when my massage was over. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful and the staff try very hard to cater to you every need and want. You'll love it there!
