After getting turned away at Bellacures because they were full :( I went to EWH in hopes that the negative reviews I had seen below were just a fluke. Unfortunately, I was wrong. This place is not as clean as some reviews might suggest. I saw them use the same tools they had just used on me on the next girl. I saw an autoclave behind one of the chairs, unplugged and empty. When I saw that my stomach sank. Now I'm just hoping I still have toenails in two weeks time.

I've had way better services for less money. I am willing to pay more for services as long as the place is uber clean, which this place wasn't. So for a mediocre mani/pedi that didn't live up to the "super clean" hype I give it 1 star. It's been 4 days and my manicure is totally chipped.

Boo.

I've been getting my nails done at east west hands for more than a year. I always loved the service. But lately it's seems to be going downhill. I've noticed on a few occaions new girls not fully cleaning the tub, I did say something and she said she did, but I was watching her . Also many of the spa chairs are not working. 1 chair specifically has been broken about 5 months. Everytime I go in (every 2wks) I seem to get that same broken chair (chair no.1). I'm hoping I will start to enjoy going there again I really like several if the girls that work there.

Recommended to me after a car accident. Best Massage/treatment ever. NOTHING else removed or remediated the pain like the Thai Massage (not physical therapy/acupuncture/or any other type of massage, or treatment). Removes the pain, relaxes the muscles and the tendons, and I have better usage of my arm and shoulder. Sop far no other treatment for my pain and posture. Since 6/06

I have been going to East West Hands for about a year a half. I have never had a bad experience. I have never waited or had a problem with parking. I go there for a pedi, but also for a relaxing quiet time. I usually go during the week and it is very quiet, I am sometimes the only person there. They have a great magazine selection and I usually sit and read and use the massage chair for about 20 min after my pedi is over. The inside is very peaceful and decorated well and they play relaxing music. I love everyone who works there. I feel like they take pride in their work, including the owner who is very friendly and is always making sure my experience is wonderful. I highly recommend this place. Its the best.

Cons: gets busy on weekends try and find parking across at Grove better

i have tried several nailsalons to find the best and the cheapest in my neighborhood and i came to conclusion that no $20 manicure&pedicure will last as long as the one you get here at east west hands.
i like the people who work there, they are really really nice and two days ago when i got my last treat i had the best manicure&pedicure ever! it was very very relaxing, the music in the salon is calming. and the best is really that the nail polish lasts really really long, and that's what really matters...no?

Pros: long lasting nails

Cons: they need more chairs...

.

I've been going to East West Hands for over a year now. The booking service has improved as they have gained more experience. The owner is often on site, and makes you feel very welcome.
I bring my own polish, and they don't give me any attitude about it, like I've recieved at other places.
It's always clean and comfortable.
Overall they do a really nice job on my nails, even with the bright red polish I brought in. Recently, my pedicure got messed up on the way from the chair to the waiting area (my fault actually), and the tech fixed it right away, again with no attitude about it.
For a mid priced salon, I don't know that it can be beat.

Pros: Great location, fair pricing, great owner, good work.

Cons: Parking can be tricky unless you use the Farmer's Market. You will probably have a wait if you go without an appt.

This is where I go to treat myself. I go there for mani/pedis and they always last a really long time. The decor is really relaxing and the people are very attentive. The only negative is that there is sometimes a wait if you don't have an appointment. Overall, highly recommended!

I have been there a few times, and it is really a great place. Alex the owner is very attentive and is very concerned about customer satisfaction. It is reasonably priced and they do a great job! I recommend the reflexology foot massage.

this was my bofriend and myselfs, first Thai Massage....it was a little painful..but I expected that. I made appointments 3 weeks earlier...and when we got there our'e appointment was not in the books....so we had a short wait...about 20 minutes...not too bad. My massage was great...my boyfriends was very painful...he said he felt like he would look over and see that I had a relaxing massage, and that his massuse seemed overly rough/aggressive. The place was nice, and calming, and we both felt much better when it was over...but I felt b?d for him....since this was his Christmas present.

If you are in need of a deep massage I would recommend coming here...

Oh and the parking is easy

What a great find. I work in the area, so I was looking for somewhere to frequent on my lunch hour. This place is absolutely wonderful. Soft, classical music. Attentive staff, relaxing methods of nail and pedicure procedures. I will be back, sooner than later! Prices are compeitive--and definitely worth it. A little heaven on Fairfax, and I was done in less than an hour.

Cons: Parking is tough, but you can park behind and enter from the alley side of the shop

Very very spacious location with additional treatment rooms in the back.
Very affordable and clean. I would highly recommend this nail shop to anyone.

After going from nail salon to nail salon in search of a good place to get a decent pedicure, I finally came accross East West Hands. Very relaxing environment. They take their time unlike many of the other places I've been to who rush through the service. The staff is friendly and inviting. I took note that the establishment is clean and sanitary. Most important they utilize great products and offer a variety of nail polish colors. I live about twenty minutes away from their location but I would definateley make the trip. It was worth it.

really good pedicure....then-I ask for a bikini wax, tell the front end person and the person who is waxing me. She does a good job, and then when I go to pay she tells me that she actually did a playboy wax asking for more money. Now, I have been waxing for years. She DID NOT do a playboy, and I had specifically told her to do a BIKINI, not to take off too much. I refused to pay extra telling her that I had been specific.

My experience was horrible. While I was there the tip on one thumb cracked. Instead of replacing it she just kept piling on glue and powder. You could still see the crack. Also, she had put tips either on crooked or one that was too small. I mentioned it to her and she said but I fixed it. However, there was still a visible crack and two finger nails looked like they were leaning to the side. She finally agreed to take two of the tips off and redo them but in the process filed so bad it burned. When I asked about replacing the messed up ones, she said "I do this every day" They were still rough and bumpy. There were spots that she had filed off the acrylic through to the nail bed. Today, less than 24 hours later, most of the acrylic is chipped off.

The staff is friendly but don't go unless you have alot of time on your hands! The first time I went, they were 30 minutes late in taking me for my appointment. Today I made an appointment and they called back 10 minutes later to ask if they could change it to 3pm. I juggled another appointment and showed up on time. By 3:30 they had not taken me nor given me any explanation. When I told the receptionist I had to leave she said "maybe you can come back tomorrow". I doubt I'll be back ever unfortunately since it is very convenient to my house.

We showed up late on a Thursday without an appointment, they made room for us, and we had a great experience. We will certainly be going again. Everyone was so polite and they went out of their way to make sure we got everything we needed.

Never in LA have I felt so welcome at a nail salon. This is a solid place, its not burke williams or some fancy shmancy spa, but just a good place to go when you need a mani/pedi. The staff are courteous and have great attention to detail so you dont feel like your going through some assembly line. They really take care of you and it is reasonably priced. And they are extremely clean! You can totally trust them. I recommend it to all of my friends.

Driving by on Fairfax the space seemed incredibly small but the interior is expansive and well lit. The staff is friendly but not over the top. Business seemed slow for a Sunday, but it worked out for me since they were able to take me the same day. It's not a posh and fancy place, but nice and the staff seemed skilled and professional.

I am a first time customer and this was my first experience getting a THAI Massage. Very unique method of healing the body-everyone must have this experience. I did not have a massage appointment, so I would have understood if there was no availability. Decided to call anyways; they accomodated me for an hour massage. Upon going to get my massage,I had this horrific stiff neck, and could not turn left or right, nor could I lift my head, total agony. As I arrived, I quickly noticed the clean place and hospitable staff. Told the therapist what my problem was, it was the most unbelievable experience ever. Made the massage into 1.5 hours...that's how good it was. Walked out of there with no neck pain and total movement. My body felt re-generated. I still can't believe how great my therapist was. Definitely will go back and become a regular customer.

My friend and I scheduled 7PM appts and purposely left work early for it. When we arrived at 7, they were just getting started on these two ladies. They said in a very off-hand manner that they would not get to me till 7:45. I told them I had dinner reservations at 8 PM and that would be too late. They just shrugged their shoulders and continued working. No apology whatsoever. I ended up walking out. Later my girlfriend told me that another worker was whining because she did not want to do the manicure, which made her feel bad. I would NOT recommend this place. Because they don't keep their appts and there is not enough people on staff, you will end up wasting your time.

I was on my way to the Farmers Market when I saw the grand opening sign. The owner greeted me and made me feel really welcome. I was there for a massage but they have alot of other things to offer and it's very nice. I had a 1 hour massage and the lady did a wonderful job.

I felt like getting a manicure/pedicure set late in the day and found this place on citysearch when the place I used to frequent was closed. They took me in promptly and it was a clean, relaxing, and comfortable atmosphere. Quality was excellent. Pricing was great. All in all, I highly recommend it.
