I had a facial and a massage here. Massage was amazing..Definintely worth it! The facial was very good as well but the esthetician continued to talk to me throughout my 80 minute facial. When I am at the spa, I just want to it be calm and quiet- so that was the only negative thing. Other than that- Great spa!

I had the pleasure of having my first massage at Giuliano Day Spa. It was absolute bliss. The atmosphere they create is extremely relaxing and comfortable. The locker room and massage rooms themselves are extremely well-kept, and the staff is extremely professional. It is certainly a treat to be pampered at Giuliano, but I cannot wait to go back.

Giuliano Day Spa is probably the most well known and most popular day spa in the city. For my mother's 50th birthday, my siblings and I chipped in and bought her a full day of services at Giuliano, and I went along to keep her company. She was a bit nervous, as she never pampers herself and did not know what to expect. She loved it!! The staff was extremely professional, respectful and understanding that it was a very significant day for my mother - you could tell they were trying hard to make it special for her. They were friendly, but not too chatty or intrusive. Every service seemed great, from the full body massage, to the manicure and pedicure, to the hair style and makeup application! We enjoyed the spa lunch as well. She left very happy and so relaxed she wanted to take a nap! :)

I went to this luxurious spa to be pampered before my wedding. I felt like a queen when I was there. I was greeted by smiley faces from the staff and was personally escorted to my spa treatment. I was pampered with a fluff robe and slippers. The room looked like something from the Egyptian era. I participated in the Rasul ceremony was approximately 45 minutes long. I was engulfed in steam as my tensions were washed away. It was truly heaven.

When I lived in Boston I went to Giuliano for my eyebrows and my manicures. Walking into Giuliano was like a breath of fresh air, the staff were always welcoming, the lights turned down low, gentle music in the background. Giuliano offered many services and although I only used them for manicures & waxes they never made me feel any less important a client.

The new G2O is a dream! I've been a client there since 2006 and their space is finally worthy of their awesome talent. I am able to get my cut & color done with Alexander, my nails done with Kim, and my waxing done with Sasha all in one trip to their ""urban oasis."" The new salon/spa is totally ""green"" and feels both clean and trendy at the same time. I only wish I worked closer so that I could take my lunch break in the spa's ""nap pod"" or jacuzzi! Get your appointment in while it's still nice out, relax on the roof deck and take in the view. Kudos to the G2O team!

A completely fantastic experience!!! I have been to a number of salons on Newbury Street and after five years, have finally found a salon with everything I need. After a full hair makeover with Jessy, I am thrilled with G2O. Had a great cut and color, strong consultation, and felt totally appreciated for the service. Wonderful staff at every level from check in through check out.

I have been having Alexander cut and color my hair for awhile now- he is not only skilled but very friendly. At his suggestion, I decided to try the Ultra Tress extensions to add more length and volume to my hair. I am so happy with the result! Alexander did an amazing job making them look and feel natural without draining my bank account. I can't wait to see the new G2O location when it opens this summer!

I was in Boston for the day and called last minute to see if I could get a facial. The staff was very helpful and was able to schedule one later in the day. My aesthitician, Olive, was very experienced and gave a wonderful facial including a hand massage plus lotion and the warm hand mitts. That was a real gift on a freezing cold day!! Olive effectively tackled my ""T-zone"" area. If you are sensitive, ask for gentle treatment. Overall, a wonderful experience and I will definitely return!

I am an extremely picky customer. I've gotten my hair cut in salons across the country, and I have to say that the best cut and color I've ever gotten was at G20! The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing, and I didn't feel like anyone was trying to rush me anywhere. My stylist made sure I was comfortable with every step before he continued. I wanted something new and fresh, and I got an extremely versatile hairstyle that was phenomenal. The thing about the cut I got was that it grew out very well. The stylist made a lot of bold color and cut decisions, but they were all in great taste, and I was thrilled with the results. It was expensive, but you get what you pay for, and I'm waiting until I can save up enough to go back!

I went here for a facial and haircolor and was less than impressed by the service and skills of the staff. First of all, the facial I received was the least relaxing facial I have ever received. I have been up and down Newbury Street for facials and, on a whim, decided to try the facial at G20. BIG MISTAKE. Compared to other spas, G20 was by far the worst for the amount of money they charge. The technician was really rough with my skin, left me alone for several minutes during my facial and I ended with several bruises on my face the following day! Other spas are much more relaxing, professional and technically competent! DO NOT GO HERE! \r
To top off the worst experience ever, they also forgot to charge me for my haircolor service and had to call me after I left the salon to ask me whether or not they could use my credit card on file to charge me for the additional service. They overcharged me and were argumentative with me over the phone. I will definitely not be returning! Save yourself the trouble and go elsewhere. There are several other places on Newbury where you will get better service!

I have been going to Lisa Zogalis for quite some time now and don't ever plan on going to anyone else..\r
She is amazing and I highly recommend going to her if your looking for a new stylist or are just in need of flawless extension work.\r
honestly she has the freshest ideas and techniques and is completely under rated.\r
G2O is truly what anyone could ever look for in a saloon/spa

I can not believe the review by TeenyDancer. She must have a Teeny Brain! Honestly, the only way I could see a bad result from Darren's work, would be if he had little to work with before he started. He is, after all, NOT a magician. After searching for YEARS for a competent stylist, I stumbled upon Darren. His technique and skills landed him on Boston's Best list for 2007. HELLO! I have been driving a 150 mile round trip about 6 times per year for the last 5-6 years just to get a spot in his chair. While he is cutting my hair, I notice other stylists studying his techniques. It's obvious that he is an artist with great talent. Anyone who wants to believe the awful review from TeenyDancer, please go ahead. That means I've got a much better chance of getting in Darren's completely crammed schedule!

My girlfriend has been going to G2O for about a year now(maybe longer) and gets her hair cut and highlighted with Brady and she always looks great. She's been trying to get me to go see him since I usually go to whatever's cheap and I can walk right in and get a cut. Only problem, half the time I come home and my girlfriend freaks out when she sees me.....yeah I've had a few really bad haircuts. My last one was so bad that she insisted on making an appointment with Brady for me. I have to say it's the best $50 I've spent in a long time. Brady gave me by far the best cut I've ever had, easy to keep as well. My girlfriend won't let me go to anyone else now. She's happy, I'm certainly happy and the salon is really nice. Highly recommended!

Pros: excellent cut and my GF's color always looks great

I was referred to Darren at G20 on Newbury by two friends who have great hair, so after commuting to Manhattan every time I wanted a cut, I bit the bullet and tried a new place. While I must say that my highlights are great - really natural and exactly what I wanted - I will NEVER let him come near me with scissors again. My hair looked great in the chair, but as soon as I left and started to play with it, everything changed. I tried to live with it for a week, but ended up going down the street to a much better (and cheaper) salon in Somerville to get it fixed. The new stylist didn't believe me when I told her I had just gotten a cut - my ends were a mess, the shape was all wonky and the layers were all uneven. Speaking of layers, he gave me some thick, choppy super-short layers that give me a judy jetson style bubble head (with some random long pieces underneath) which unfortunately can only be fixed by time. Plus, he had left a hole on one side of my face and a 2-inch wide chunk in the back that was longer than everything else. Not cute.\r
\r
All in all, Darren is a fraud. Go there only if you want to leave with a weird, unfixable shape looking like you haven't gotten a cut in months. If I only I could get my money back...

I am pretty new to the whole ""spa experience"". A good friend recommended, G2O and I thought ""why not?"". My first time and I went all out with massage, mani/pedi, hair and a facial. They even served me a GREAT lunch! The experience was amazing! I am totally hooked and I will have to do it all again! The staff in general were very caring and thoughful at all turns... but the thing that I have to say impressed me the most was when I was checking out, the woman before me was throwing a fit. The poor man behind the desk stood there, taking a verbal beating from this woman... and I am not too sure exactly what happened but you could just tell she was being unreasonable. He remained polite and was attempting to calm her in every way. I thought he had amazing customer service skills and when she was done blowing up, he checked me out as up beat and cooly as if nothing had happened. This is a great skill and more people like him in general would be a vast improvement in the world. I will with out question be going back!

I had one of the best experiences of my life at this place. I have been getting regular massages for the last 8-9 years, and this massage was BY FAR the best ever. The massuse was a very, small and attractive girl (not like that should matter), with surprisingly strong hands for a girl her size. She was very caring and intuitive, also very funny- strange sense of humour, which I enjoyed. I left with no knots or tension, just a great feeling of peace with the world. Very powerful.

I'm confused as to what other users are saying when reviewing this spa and salon. I have been a regular for years, and have never received less than superb services. Everyone I have encountered, managers, front desk and technicians, have been extremely friendly and helpful. I'm a regular salon client, come in at least 4 times a year, and also treat myself to the Suddenly Slim body treatments every once in a while. Whenever I leave I feel like a princess. I really disagree to what the other users are saying. I have never received anything less than excellent service here.

Over the course of going there several times a month for a two-year period, I also experienced some of the rudest staff in the world. You'd step in expecting to be pampered and it sometimes took up to 45 minutes to even be acknowledged by the staff. Occasionally, I'd call on the phone and ask for my hairdresser just to assure her I had been sitting there. Of course, the one time I got caught in traffic and arrived 20 minutes late (despite the fact I called in advace to give them a head's up) I was chastised severely. After two bad hair experiences, I have up and never went back. And, no one ever called to see what had become of me.

These are without a doubt the worse people ive ever had to deal with within any organization ever. The manageress is without a doubt the most ignorant person working today. She should not be holding a position that requires her to deal with the public as she is far too rude. Even when you do go, it's expensive and the service is bad, very below par. Do not under any circumstances give these people your money. If you own this spa and you are reading this, be known ive never had to write a review or to complain about anything in my life before, that is how put out I am about your establishment especially your manageress, who needs some serious help.

My wife dediced that the best way for us to bond is to have a pedicure together. I was NOT happy about this but for the sake of my marriage, I agreed. I've got to admit that it was once of the most relaxing experiences I've had in a long while. A friendly man by the name of Van greeted me, assured me that lots of guys do this (LOL! I must have had that look across my face!). I'll do it again just for that amazing foot massage he gave me. I've got to admit, I didn't realize making my wife happy could feel so good!

I arrived 5 minutes early for my eyebrow wax appt. I continued to wait for another 25 minutes and no apologies. \r
I was glad the estecian asked me how i wanted my eyebrows. I was very specific and provided a lot of detail. after she was done, i very disappointed. not only did she take forever to do my eyebrows--the whole time i'm wondering why she was being so slow--she was actually thinning them out, even though i said i would like to keep as much thickness as possible. they were also uneven, and have empty patches. \r
i've never had a worse eyebrow wax. won't be coming here again for anything.\r

I recently went to G2O for a cut and a color. The stylist (Justine) was amazing with the color and, on the first try, gave me the deep cocoa that I have always wanted and somehow never recieved. The haircut was perfect. Originally I had a different idea of what I wanted, but she explained my face shape, etc... and her reccomended cut was PERFECT! This place is amazing!

I have been here twice, once for an eyebrow wax with Shalyn and once for a French Manicure and Pedicure with Suely. Shalyn was wonderful and Suely was not only very sweet and friendly but her pedicure is the best I have ever had. I look forward to going back!

I went for a swedish massage because I got a gift card, and it was amazing. The employees were all very nice to me, especially one of the women at the main desk. It would be kind of pricey on my own, but it was very enjoyable, and the 80 minutes is a perfect amount of time. And absolutely no products were pushed on me at all.

Although G2O can be a very expensive at times. It is without a doubt the best place to get your hair cut and colored (Ask for Shaun). Shaun really cares about his clients and I trust him to do ""anything"" with my hair. The staff at the front desk are not always that friendly and seem to get annoyed if you ask too many questions. Most of the stylists are amazing . If you have some spare time you may also want to sign up for a massage which is also top notch (Ask for Julianne she is amazing and worth every penny). I received a facial there recently and it was only ok. I have received better facials for less money. I have been going to G2O for over 5 years and I will continue to go for another 5. The right hairdresser is worth a few rude front staff employees ( or maybe I am just used to it after 5 years). Products can be a little overpriced but I no longer have problem skin. Yon Ka products are amazing

Although G2O can be a very expensive at times. It is without a doubt the best place to get your hair cut and colored (Ask for Shaun). Shaun really cares about his clients and I trust him to do ""anything"" with my hair. The staff at the front desk are not always that friendly and seem to get annoyed if you ask too many questions. Most of the stylists are amazing . If you have some spare time you may also want to sign up for a massage which is also top notch (Ask for Julianne she is amazing and worth every penny). I received a facial there recently and it was only ok. I have received better facials for less money. I have been going to G2O for over 5 years and I will continue to go for another 5. The right hairdresser is worth a few rude front staff employees ( or maybe I am just used to it after 5 years). Products can be a little overpriced but I no longer have problem skin. Yon Ka products are amazing

Pros: Talented stylist. Great bodywork

Cons: High Priced, Rude front staff and no parking ( but this is Boston. Take the train)

I received a 1/2 day at the spa as a gift - a facial, a massage and a mani/pedi (and lunch from Sonsie). The massage was not great though I recalled upon meeting the masseuse that she gave a sub-par massage several years ago (I had forgotten until hello). The facial by Jessica was wonderful and relaxing, and she used Yonka products, great high-end products that are hard to find in Boston. Lana gave me a mani/pedi - a wonderfully relaxing pedicure and a very nice manicure. I believe 1/2 a day was 285.00. It was a very nice day but the massage could've been better.

My foil results - single process Marylin Monroe look on top and streaked everywhere else; AWFUL. I returned the next morning at 8AM for a refund to go to my regular salon. They refused and insisted I wait until the manager arrived at 11 AM. I left in tears and no refund when another employee saw me outside. He toned my hair to get it back to the original color and offered to rehighlight it that evening if the manager agreed to transfer the cost. At this point, I didn't want to completely fry my hair so I left with my hair the original color I came in with, out $140, plus $30 tip, plus $36 parking: $206 for 5 hours one day, tears, and my original hair color. The salon is overpriced, especially given the fact that a 5 hour foil on chin-length hair rings of inexperience...AVOID THIS PLACE

i received a gift certificate from a friend and i called the salon to get some ideas on what treatment to get. they were not helpful at all. when i asked them a question, they were curt and not very informative. i went in for a swedish massage and my masseuse was very nice. (the front desk and the concierge were quite rude). my masseuse asked me specific questions to personalize the massage session but didn't really address the issues during the massage. overall, it was relaxing but not really worth the money.

Upon arriving at Giuliano's for my stone massage, I was brought to the bottom floor which was something out of a magazine. The decor, the atmosphere was mind blowing. They had a changing area equiped with safe and secure lockers for your valuables, the softest robes you have ever put on. Once ready, you sit in their waiting room which has water, tea, and light snacks. The massage was amazing. They even encourage you to stay in your robe and have some tea and continue to relax in their lounge area once your massage is over.

My facial and massage were heavenly. The mani/pedi was good too. My bikini waxer didn't finish the job, which I didn't realize until I was home. I had to go back for the rest to be waxed. I had an engagement following my visit and could not go because my hair and makeup were such a disaster. I would return for a facial, massage, mani/pedi and a scrutinized waxing.

I've visited this spa twice. The first time was for a facial. The facial was okay, nothing great, but the stylist used the hour to pressure me to buy their products. Their EXPENSIVE products. She actually went so far to say ""How can you expect to be the most beautiful girl in the world if you don't buy the right products?"" Like $30 face rinse is going to get me there. Anyway, the second time I went back because my boyfriend had gotten me a gift certificate - I was to have a body wrap, facial, mani and pedi. The body wrap and facial were to be done at pretty much the same time, but while the body wrap was nice, the facial was almost nonexistant. She really spent like 10 minutes on my face. And again, the mani and pedi were only average.
