My wife and I tried this place out with a few of our friends the other day.

We have a wedding to attend in two weeks so all of us wanted our teeth to look good so we tried the teeth whitening package. It only took about 25 minutes for the whole process and my mouth felt so clean after it I saw an immediate change when I looked in the mirror. Very easy process to go through and the people were very nice and explained what the process involved and helped answer all of your questions.

Amy likes to get her nails done so while she was doing that my other friend and I chose to get a message. Wow what a relaxing time and I feel less tense than when I went it!

They offer so many great things you just need to make a day out of it! From what we did experience it was fun and everyone seemed rather friendly. We plan to come back when we have more time and before the wedding!

I have been going to Jen for quite a few years, following her from Fusion when she opened Strada Day Spa. It is so relaxing in there; she does a wonderful job, and spends a lot of time with each client. Jen has done a miraculous job with the renovation of what pretty much was a square box of a building. And, the landscaping is lovely, setting the mood before even entering the spa.

I went to Strada because of the reviews I read on Google. Now I know why they are so hightly rated! Sheryl gave me the best massage I've ever had(deep tissue) and I've had plenty in my life. The haircut was great as well as the ambience.

I was a little afraid to go to a new place after having gone to the same stylist for 15 years. I just moved to Willow Glen and decided to stop at this cute little Day Spa. Little did I know how big it was inside and how warm and inviting

I had an appointment with the lead hairdresser. I was quickly rushed through my color being put in my hair, with minimal product. Jen didn't listen to what I wanted at all. She did her own thing and it came out horrible. I have never seen such bad highlights since I went to beginning stylists fresh out of school. They were poorly space (the whole nine of them) and some where near my roots, others inches away) Their fix to complaint, to of course get more services- $$$! I have never been so dissatisfied in a place. I went elsewhere and got exactly what I wanted and I was the blond I wanted to be. They by the way charged $90 for actual highlights that amounted to more than just a few. By the way the eyebrow stylists also isn't good. I ignore other yelp reviews hoping it was just someone else, but I should of listened. Bring your money elsewhere or you will get a botch job and the receptionist will tell you how good it is and the salon will do nothing to fix it.

Eileen is my favorite. I've been going to her for over 5 years now and I love the way she waxes. She is always very interested in what I'm saying and legitimately cares about what goes on in my life. I have never had a burn or redness after visiting her, and I have very light skin. Awesome woman-- check her out!

This place has so many great reviews that I decided to give it a try. Let's just say it was very disappointing. Yes the atmosphere is great but the hair cut I got was not... I didn't ask for anything really fancy, just maintaining a cut I had done a month before. It was definitely not the cut I was hoping for and now need to find someone else to correct what was done.
Not going back for sure.

I was very dissappointed to find that Carolann Espino is no longer affiliated with Strada Dayspa. She was one of the best in the business. The best esthetician, massage therapist and Reiki Practitioner. Too bad for Strada.

I have experienced TRUE RELAXATION. After an extremely taxing week, I decided to visit the salon and purchased a package which included a facial and massage with services provided by Kerry Hamilton. The facial and massage were fabulous. Kerry?s touch is gentle and soothing, yet firm and effective. Her gracious and gentle nature could make any customer feel at ease. I highly recommend a visit to both the salon and Kerry for anyone interested in feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Rodney Haines is amazing. He is extremely talented, has extensive training and experience, much of it in high end New York salons. is a perfectionist as well sweet and witty. My hair has been a nightmare my entire life: lifeless, thin, and extremely fragile. Many stylists have tried to work with my difficult hair, but to achieve what I want, has always resulted in damaged hair. Well, Rodney has achieved full, bouncy, curly hair with a beautiful color and highlights, and still kept my hair healthy! He listens to your wishes, and works with you, but he will never allow damage to your hair. He is open, honest and truly cares. He styles men, women, young and old, everyone getting exactly what they came in for. He has many talents, you might even get some great tips for creating amazing meals too. All this and his prices are quite reasonable.

I was referred to Carolann at Strada Salon by a friend. I had a great treatment. Everything was conducive to a relaxing facial and massage. She was informative, professional and explained very well the benefits of facials and massage. It is very rare that I go to the zone where I completely relax. She asked me about any injuries and before doing extraction explained the sanitation procedures she uses for all clients. I was very impressed. I have never had anyone make me feel so comfortable about all aspects of my treatment. I highly recommend her to anyone. I will definitely become a return client.

Cons: Atmosphere in salon could of been more relaxing

I have been a client of Carolann's for 15 years. She is a friend and professional associate. I have had all spa treatments by her over a span of many years. We are friends but also very picky about what we spend our money on. I knew her when she had her own Dayspa and have continued to see her for almost 20 years. That speaks for itself. .

I have known about Reiki for many years. I am a caregiver who works in hospice with the dying. I met Carolann because I was told about her compassion and knowledge and practice of Reiki. I know other caregivers who practice Reiki and I have never heard anything negative about the benefit of this healing modality. When I went to see Carolann it was to discuss my husband's debilitating conditjion of Parkinson's Disease. She never made any medical claims and certainly did not tell me not to continue seeking medical experts. But what she did do was a Reiki session for me and I was convinced that Reiki is beneficial to anyone. She merely placed her hands on me and I was relaxed, peaceful and felt warmth, vibrations and a state of calmness that I haven't felt in so long. She made no claims and just made me feel very nutured and taken of. I have never experienced anything like this before. She informed mr that she learned Reiki from an RN/LVN from Stanford Hospital and became a Reiki Master.. She also happily told me that they are practicing Reiki on patients at Kaiser Santa Clara. I left feeling so much more hopeful about my husband whether he sees her or not.. I would highly recommend Carolann for anyone suffering from pain or a physical ailment. She indicated to me that Reiki assists the body to heal itself. She has an abiltiy to make you feel very cared for.

I just moved to San Jose from the East bay and was searching for a place I can trust with my hair. I admit, I don't put much effort into my hair, but I wanted a change and needed to find a great hair stylist to provide that for me. I swear but reviews and when I read reviews about how great Suzie was, I booked my appt with her. Unfortunetely, she wasn't available but I decided I would go with whoever was available. Rodney, another hair stylist cut my hair and I LOVE IT!!! I gave him an idea of what I wanted and he honored my request while also adding in his own creative (and great) touches to my cut. I'm absolutely in love with my hair and really, have never had a cut this amazing. I'm getting compliments from everyone! I have very fine, baby thin hair and Rodney really made my hair look fuller. I've never had bangs before because I didn't think they would look good on me but somehow, he managed to cut them to look great. I will def. be going back to this salon not only for future hair cuts and color but also their other services which are reasonably priced as well. The customer service was great, parking was easy to find (they have a lot) and overall, I had a great experience. Thanks Strada & Rodney!

After experimenting for many years with different hair stylists and salons and being disappointed most of the times, I finally found Suzi Mate. She is absolutly the best and very profesional. Her haircuts are very precise and even.... which means my hair always grows out evenly and always looks great ...without spending much time styling each morning. So unless I decide to go shorter I can go for up to 2-3 months between my haircuts! Thank you Suzi for making me look beautiful everyday, and get all those nice compliments from my friends!

Nice work with my haircut and style, Suzi Mate. You're a true virtuoso with the scissor cut I've missed for so long. Clipper cuts cannot match the way you custom shape my very straight hair to the shape of my face. You've earned my steady business!

I had a facial and a massage at Strada Salon & Day Spa. Whomever contributed to that decor definitely has good taste (in the spa area especially). The parking was great, the staff was really friendly and attentive when I came in. Several staff asked if I would like water, coffee or tea etc. Carolann was my therapist. What a pro. She provided one of the best experiences I have ever had. I felt like I was floating most of the time. Everything she did added to one of the best services I have had bar none. I would highly recommend her to men, women, grandmothers, sisters, brothers. I left feeling like a new person. She said very little but I found her to be a kind human being who cares about everyone of her clients from beginning to the end of your time with her.

I got a gift certificate for Strada spa for my birthday and I was super excited, since it was my first time to get a massage. Carrie was sooo great, she really took her time and was very courteous, Suzi gave me a beautiful haircut and was really helpful on techniques I can do at home. Overall this place is wonderful and I will definately be going back.

Best facial and massage anywhere! I found Strada Salon on City Search. I read the reviews and decided to try Carolann because of all her great reviews. I was not disappointed. I had a facial and a massage. I have never been so relaxed and my skin felt and looked fantastic. She uses Dermalogica and is extremely knowledgeable.I would recommend her for either service. It was excellent service and she is a very friendly down to earth person. Experience definitely matters and she certainly has that plus she gives 150 percent.

Carolann is a 3rd Degree Reiki Practicioner who is really in-tune with the energy system of the body. She has a gift for sensing what is out of balance and can focus on the cause of any problems. Her unique ability to scan the body helps pinpoint the areas of focus. I have known and worked with Carolann for over 2 years. Her gifts are truly genuine and her dedicaton to helping others is obvious.

i recently went to visit Carolann a Reiki Master who was referred to me by a friend. I went with a migraine headache and was told Reiki might help. She was very thorough in her consultation and asked me about the history of my headaches. She stated the longer and more chronic a condition is the more difficult it is to be relieved. She made no medical claims and was very informative about her experiences with Reiki. I had an open mind and I was definitely surprized when the minute she placed her hands on my head the pain immediately began to dissipate. I became extremely relaxed and left feeling so much better. She recommended more treatments for chronic conditions and thanked me for trusting her. She stated she was trained by a LVN-RN from Stanford Medical Center and that they were now doing Reiki at the Kaiser Santa Clara Hospital. I left feeling as if I had just met a dear friend who genuinely was concerned about alleviating my discomfort. I highly recommend her for Reiki treatments.

I found Carolann on another review site. She is a spa therapist and Reiki Master. I had a Reiki session from her due to ongoing chronic pain in my foot. The session was relaxing and beneficial. The pain in my foot subsided the minute she put her hands on my throbbing foot. I was astounded. I had heard she had healing hands but I was truly amazed. Reiki made me so relaxed and I felt a deep sense of tranquitty and peace. Weeks later my foot still does not give me the problems or pain it did before. I purchased a gift certifificate to have a massage from Carolann. She said it was the best massage she ever had. It was thorough, and the hot towels and heating pads were an added unexpected treat as well. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is one of the nicest caring practiioners I have met in a long time.

When I go to San Jose to Visit, I always make it a point to see Eileen to get the best facial ever. I wish she lived in L.A., which iis where I live. She is so thorough and a pleasure to be with. She also uses and sells Dermalogica which is a skin care line I love. I always recommend Eileen to all my friends and clients whenever they plan at trip to the bay area. I love that she was prompt and very professional with a great attitude. see you soon

Strada Salon has a very good massage therapist in Carolann Espino. I have come in once a month over the past year plus, and have received an excellent, very consistent and relaxing massage. She has developed a 90 minute routine that is thorough, but still allows for some detailed work on areas that may need specific attention because of injury or stress.

Wow... What a great experience in such an unlikly spot. This gem is still under constuction but is already one of the nicest salons I've ever been to. It's not for the head banging music crowd but is geared more toward relaxation. Just what I needed after a long day. The haircut was great and the staff was very friendly. They just put in a tanning bed and also have teeth whitening plus a full spa what can I say?... I'm hooked!

Carol Ann gave me the best facial I have ever had. It was a peaceful environment and I left relaxed.
She has the ability to massage as well and her hands gave my neck and shoulders a much needed treatment. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to keep their skin in good shape and relax as well!!!! It was a fantastic experience. I can hardly wait for my next visit.

Carolann is the Simply the Best! I have gone to see her for facials and massages and it is an exquisite calming experience. After my facials, my face is simply glowing. I have really sensitive skin and she is very professional about looking at my skin and asking questions to tailor a facial especially for me addressing my skin concerns with warmth and confidence, which really puts me at ease. Actually the minute I step into her room I start to unwind, it is so tranquil and she is accomodating. Afterwards, if there is a product I asked about, and if has samples, she'll give me some to try out, she is so generous. And her massages are amazing too. Besides deep tissue, she is also very skilled at lymphatic massage, which is a real treat. I have had some challenging health issues that she has definately helped through her massage. And her personality is such a treat, she so upbeat, knowledgable and wise. I have had facials and massages from Mexico to Hawaii and she is on the top of the list, I just can't say enough good things about her and how great I feel after seeing her.

Cons: Can't think of Anything

Wow Carolann was great. I had an amazing experience. From the moment I walked through the door I was treated in a professional manner and at the time she made me feel like I was on a relaxing vacation. I recommend Carolann at Strada to all my friends and make a point to treat myself t o a massage by Carolann often as I can.

Excellent experience i have had a few massages by Carolann it was wonderful. Extremely relaxing and very professional. the atmosphere as a whole, was very inviting. The rest of the staff was friendly and nice as well. I have driven to Calistoga and Napa for the same relaxing experiences I was delighted to find out that Strada Salon was in my own backyard. I have given coupons to friends and family as gifts so they could experience the same enjoyment. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Cons: none

Recently, I had the most amazing experience at Strada salon. My girlfriend wanted me to get a pedicure, like most guys I was extremely hesitant because it's not cool. Michelle Rosendin was very service oriented, in terms of making me feel relaxed in this unique ordeal. First, she offered me a nice cold beverage, secondly she has this amazing massage chair that puts your entire body and mind at rest. Third, she tells a few jokes that are not very funny, however, I laugh because she is trying. You can never fault someone for effort. Then she proceeded with the pedicure, her hands were very soothing on my toes, she has a certain touch that makes this expierence simply serene. As, she is giving me my pedicure, she asked me if I'm comfortable, and if I need a cold beverage.She focuses on one toe at a time, and as a result my toes looked amazing. My girlfriend was extremely happy with the final product, which makes my life a lot easier, guys you know what i mean. In closing, Michelle made this experience very enjoyable, going in I was scared because it's the first time I had a pedicure. She made it a very enjoyable experience that I highly recommend. Go to strada and ask for michelle it would be worth it.

The hair salon is chaotic and I felt alot of tension from the employees .. You could cut it with a knife. After viewing the website I expected to walk in and feel very relaxed. It wasnt until I stepped into the spa that I felt any relaxation. The massage from the therapist was good but the noise coming from the room next door kept me from relaxing. I heard muffled talking throughout the treatment and there was no shower facility. I visited previously over a year ago and was not as dissapointed by my previous spa service.

Strada Salon has a wonder and relaxing atmosphere. I have seen both Jan for facials and Jennifer (the owner) for hair, several times, and each has been consistantly wonderful.

I had actually stopped having facials quite sometime ago because I was not impressed, THEN I met Jan. When you walk into her room the atmosphere is very soothing which just adds to the experience of the facial, of course most of the time I end up falling asleep at some point because it is so relaxing, but for the times I am awake I throughly enjoy my time there and I get to enjoy the mini foot massage she provides while I have my mask on! Never realize just how neglected my feet are until Jan reminds me with her mini foot massage, I NEED to schedule a session with Jan just for my feet!

My experiences with Jennifer have been great. I am at a point in my life where I just don't know what I want to do with my hair. She has been very patient and has asked and listened to my "bad" hair stories. And if by chance my color isn't quite what I thought I needed, she has been more than willing to make suggestions and adjust accordingly.

As the ower of Strada, I feels as though Jennifer goes out of her way to provide a salon with a comfortable atmosphere as well as trained individuals. In short I would highly recommend Strada Salon & Day Spa, and even though I have not worked with everyone there, I beleive all that do, do so and simply add to a satisfying experience.

Pros: Jan and Jennifer are wonderful. Easy parking with access.

Cons: Not so far.

If you go to this spa, do NOT ask for a massage from Jan. Or anything from her for that matter. She was snotty and unfriendly during my appointment. She sneered at my skin care regimen, but did not bother to offer any better suggestions, criticized my skin and couldn't make conversation to save her life. And that was just during the facial!

She told me I would just love her foot massage, but how could I tell when it lasted all of 3 minutes? She obviously has no formal massage training, or she would know you massage MUSCLE, not bones. Her technique was irratic, going over my biceps 6 times (I counted) but barely addressing my feet (although she made a show of washing them, but then didn't do anything else. They're clean and well cared for, so it wasn't a cleanliness issue). It was not relaxing at all. I told her not to get any oil in my hair, as I was going out to dinner later, and she ignored me and rubbed her oily hands all through my hair (even though she said she'd wash them off first).

This spa is clearly added on as an afterthought to this salon to make money. I'm not sure about their other employees, but Jan clearly doesn't have the required education for massage. When I went to pay, she curtly informed me she doesn't take credit cards, but that wasn't mentioned before.

She was rude, snotty and untrained. My cat gives me better massages when he walks across my back. If you want a relaxing, rejuvinating spa experience, I suggest you try somewhere other than this spa. DISAPPOINTING!

I've been to several massage session with Jan and they are simply the best massage experiences I've ever had. The massage room is dimly lit and smells great--like fresh eucalyptus mixed with other fresh scents. She is very gentle when I'm feeling sensitive but can also get into deep massage therapy when I need my muscles to be manipulated. It's not just that she's a great massage therapist; she truly cares about your experience and wants make sure that you're getting what you need out of the experience. She is a very calming person and I always feel relaxed and rejunvenated after a massage.

I've also had a few facials from her and highly recommend her for that as well. She is thorough and knowlegeable about all skin types and can recommend a skin treatment for anyone looking to refresh their skin care regimen. I am using a few of the products from the Dermalogica line and just love them (particularly their facial cleanser). I rarely have breakouts and attribute that to Jan's wonderful facials and me taking better care of my skin. Go see Jan. You won't regret it!

Fantastico!

This salon/day spa is like a cruise experience. I feel and look 10 years younger and 20 years more glamorous than when I walked through the door. The exotic upbeat atmosphere....the gorgeous fountain and lush greenery as you step inside, sets the mood for creating a new and improved YOU! If you are in the doldrums or simply need some serious pampering, this is the place for you.

I am somewhat discriminating about which salons I patronize and, in my opinion, these people are true artists in their fields. Even though the salon is relatively new, the stylists, estheticians, massage therapists and the manicurist are all highly experienced and raise the bar on over-all quality. My haircut with highlights gave me a new look with pazzazz! My husband agrees and feels equally 'at home' in the Stada salon.

The extra amenities include free delicious coffee, wine and healthy snacks, music of all venues (requests are invited), plus impeccably clean throughout.

Just walk in the door and they have you!

Strada is one of the most relaxing salons in ALL of San Jose. I was given a gift certificate to Strada for Mother's Day by my husband. (what a guy!!!) I started with a haircut and deep conditioner from Taylor. Ladies, you know how hard it is to find a GOOD hairstylist!!! Let's just say, she's got a client for life!!!! I was so relieved to find a new salon and day spa!!!!
And my facial was amazing!!!!! Jan, my massage therapist, took her time with my facial. SO relaxing. She also recommended I try Dermalogica for some of my skin issues. Starting a new skin care line is always scary for me, but I decided to give it a try. At the time, I had a few acne issues, and was feeling desperate. So with the help of Jan, I chose an acne wash from Dermalogica. After 1 wash, I knew I had found my new line!!!!!!! What a relief!!!!!!!!!!
LONG story short, I LOVE STRADA!!!!!!!
And MEN: A gift certificate to Strada is a wonderful gift!!!!!
