I discovered Marilyn Jaeger as I was walking back to my car from the nearby gym. I went inside, felt the calm and friendly vibe, and immediately made an appointment for a facial. The service was wonderful, so I booked a massage with Lily, who I've returned to about half a dozen times in the past year. I'm looking forward to my next massage, and trying more of the great services available.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. As the star rating says, "run, don't walk" to make your appointment for bliss.

Since moving from the east coast, I was doubtful to find another spa where I could continue to have my brazillian done. Then I found MJSS. Not only are the staff professional, they are all friendly, too! I'm always greeted with a warm smile as soon as I walk in the door. I've grown comfortable with their aesthetician Farah who now always does my brazillian. Just recently, my husband and I booked facials with MJSS. Although they do not offer a couple's facial, our experience were oustanding and definitely time well spent.
Services at MJSS has always been worth my money, so I hope to continue to come to this spa as long as the quality stays the same or just keeps getting better!

Marilyn Jaeger's Skin Care Studio is always such a delight. The ambiance of the Spa makes me feel warm and cozy every time I walk in. I would highly reccomend going here and trying it out. The facials, massages, and waxing's are all top notch

Pros: Great Customer Service, Products, Services

Cons: None

I have been to lots of studios that have all successfully sold me products, but here, when Marilyn tells you a product will improve your skin - she is right. Your friends will tell you your skin looks better and wonder what your are doing differently.
Beyond skincare, this is the only place in town for eyebrow shaping.
Lastly, the space is beautiful - strong and feminine, like Marilyn herself.

I am soooooo confused as to how Marilyn Jaeger Skin Care studio has recieved such rave reviews thus far. I have been getting brazilian waxes for about 6 years. In that 6 years I have lived in 7 cities and been to 7 different salons for this procedure and I can safely say that hands down no contest I recieved the WORST Brazilian wax i have EVER gotten in my ENTIRE life at this salon. Although the staff was quite friendly and attentive (thus the one star) the cost was outrageous and the waxing could be described as nothing better than a hack job. I would estimate that about 75% of the hairs were broken as opposed to pull out completely. When I left the salon my skin was red and rough as though I had shaved it 3 days prior. Upon closer inspection I realized that about 5% of the hairs had been missed completely. And whoever says that this salon does a nearly painless brazilian is out of their mind. I have had much much less painful experiences than this one. All in all I would have to say a free shave in the shower not only would have yeilded better results but would have saved me $90. Quite frankly I wouldn't return if you paid me.

Ok so I have been going to Marilyn for the past year and let me tell u that she is one of the best brazillian waxer in SF! she is super friendly and has great memory (actually remembered details of my life..even when I see her once every 2 or 3 months! ) she is super fast n yet very detailed especially in getting rid of ingrown hair! she is truly one of the BEST! and let me tell you that it is ALMOST PAINLESS to get a brazillian done with her!! c'mon no waxing is ever painless but with her ALMOST is the word. Also, all the girls that answers the phone are super friendly and very helpful to your needs. Whenever I am late they never told me to go back home but instead they would penciled me in to see Marilyn in less than 15 min! I know that its a drag sometimes to actually missed an appointment and pay for the full amount but really time is money and we as the customers should be considerate enough to realize that there would be OTHER LADIES in the waiting list dying to be in the appointment book. So try Marilyn for yourself n you would never be disappointed =)

Pros: Fast, detailed and Almost Painless Brazillian Wax, plus super friendly people and the "Potion" is one amazing product!

Cons: Parking could be hard..so give extra 15 min before your appointment time

I'll admit it - I have been keeping this place under wraps until now. It was hard enough to get an appointment without telling all of San Francisco how great it is. But I'm moving, so the cat's out of the bag!

I've been going to see Marilyn and her girls for more than two years. Its one of those rare place where it doesn't matter who you see- they are all friendly, make me feel comfortable, and do a good job. I've had facials and a variety of waxes. I used to only want places that use hard wax, but the ladies at MJ's are quick and the strip wax is never a problem. I never feel rushed, even when I arrive ten minutes late and they should just tell me off and make me reschedule.

Some previous reviewers say that the Spa doesn't feel fancy enough... I happen to like that it feels comfortable and homey - I'm never intimidated and it doesn't lend itself to feeling like they only tend to the elite. Everything is always clean and professional - but its the kind of place where the appointment ends with a hug. I love going!

Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable rooms & lobby are not sterile, quick waxing but attention to detail

Cons: Parking around Laurel Heights is touch and go - no nearby garage

I was impressed by the creative apartment-style spa and the tasty champagne. Massage was OK, compared to places of similar pricing I would say a little below par, and they are very high pressure when it comes to sales, for example they insist on using essential oils during the massage that cost an extra $10, i figured they'd include it in the massage, not charge even more for a milliliter of essential oils. Then the Brazilian wax..OMG! The girl who did it (brunette) was very aggressive and made me feel really uncomfortable, she laughed at me for crying and did it very slowly and painfully, for 65$! Even the cheapest salon like Richmond nails in the Richmond dist or Belle Beauty Salon on 7th and Cali, did a cleaner and faster job than her! Then when I was practically bleeding from her services and ready to pay, the girls at the front desk pressured me into buying a "potion" for your "area" that is supposed to heal you up...it burned and made me feel like I had poured 70% vodka on my privates..any old baby powder would have done the trick rather than that! all in all, the place terrifies me! I know they're going for a high class target market, but they need to pick up the services and find better professionals, particularly in the waxing department!

Pros: pretty studio, good champagne

Cons: pushy staff that sells,sells,sells, and AWFUL waxing

I have been several times (to the College Ave Salon)... I have had a facial, brow waxing, brow tinting and eyelash tinting. Everytime, I have had AMAZING service!! The staff is wonderful, the building is BEAUTIFUL and the atmosphere is great. I get complemented on my brows all the time and LOVE telling people about the salon.

And also, I don't understand why people would complain about the parking, because it is so easy to find spots. The salon is close to a neighborhood with no parking time limit!

Marilyn hosted 30 of my graduate school classmates at her new Berkeley location on College at Broadway. The venue was perfect for our group, and the staff was organized, friendly, and extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend hosting bachelorette, office, or any other parties here for a day of relaxation and a pay-as-you-go menu of services for you and your guests.

I got a gel peel performed by Marilyn herself and she made the experience relaxing, rejuvenating, and informative. I plan to return to Marilyn for a series of peels to work on my long-time struggle with acne. I actually believe that she will be able to help and I know I'll feel like I'm getting my money's worth.

Go to Marilyn today!

I went to check out this place because of all the "raving reviews" and overall it wasn't a great experience nor was it bad. My brazilian wax was fast, but they use only soft wax which tends to be harsher in the "sensitive areas". I prefer places that use hard wax in the more delicate areas since it feels less painful. The room was nice, but I felt like I was in an old rickety house. It didn't feel very spa to me. I've had a lot of brazilians and I've experienced ones that took about the same amount of time, but were less painful.

I've been going traveling from Sacramento for appointments with Marilyn for facials and waxing since at least 1999 and have become a loyal fan. After living in Manhattan and San Francisco in the past and trying out different spas, Marilyn comes out on top as the best. I get compliments on my brows and people think I look less than half my age. I've been faithfully using the products Marilyn recommends to keep my skin looking great, and using them at home is like an extension of the spa experience. I have no desire to try other spas for facials or waxing, even when I'm on vacation, or back in Manhattan. I've also had heavenly massages and manicures and pedicures that lasted by the friendly staff. Overall, Marilyn is extraordinary--giving, generous, involved in her own charity, thoughtful, customer-service oriented, and it is evident in the details and overall spa culture that she cares about her clients.

Marilyn Jaeger Skin Care absolutely gives THE best brazilian wax a girl (or guy!!) can get. Marilyn (and her staff-especially Elizabeth) is the fastest, kindest and best brazilian waxer in the world-and I feel like I have the authority to say that! I have had brazilian's in many salons around the city (and country) and now will NEVER go any where else. Her staff is friendly, proffesional, efficient and consistent. The place is cozy and clean. Absolutely top notch.

I have homes in both New York and San Francisco but I always wait until I'm back in SF to have my eyebrows done by the master of eyebrow waxing in the United States - Marilyn Jaeger. Marilyn is renowned amongst a certain set - specifically the bicoastal jetset. She's precise, painless and quick. I can't speak about her Brazilian waxes because I'm a guy but if they're as painless as her eyebrows I may just have to try one!

If you live in San francisco, you must give marilyn jaeger's salon a try! I use to live in San Francisco, and would visit Marilyn Jaeger every month for my brazilian wax, like clock work! It's true what they say about not knowing what you've got till it's gone! I just moved back to Europe about 2 months ago, and have not been able to find a salon that even comes close to hers!!!
I went for a brazilian wax here only to be reminded of how painful they use to be. I don't know if it is the wax she uses, or the technique she has, or the fact that she is so fast and efficient at it (probably a combination of all), but you wont find anyone to compare her to. It's just not as painful as everywhere else I've been. She makes you feel really comfotable too! First thing I do when I go back to SF for a vacation is book an appointment with her! Miss you Marilyn!!!

The pedicure that I received at Marilyn Jaeger was the worst ever. My friend and I were so excited to get our pedicures. We got to the spa and had 2 glasses of Sangria (very tasty). Then we get this pedicure from this woman who starts telling us the rights and wrongs about our feet. Not to brag, but we have pretty nice feet and have been getting them done for years and years. Then we ask for French and she tells us "NO". What? We are paying for this dog gone pedicure and we want French. She proceeds to tell us that she does not believe in French because is not classic. We sat in a desk chair with our feet in her lap. Our feet never went into a basin, bowl, tub, etc. of water. What type of S*** is that. She sprayed our feet with a water bottle, pushed back the cuticles, took off the nail polished, cut the cuticle, and then painted them. AWFUL!!!!!! She talked the whole time about her life and then wanted to pick out our own colors. I do not recommend getting a pedi there. The massage was pretty good. Not the best, but it was okay.............

I found this place through citysearch about 6 months ago. I went in for a bikini wax, as well as an eyebrow wax. I was amazed a Marilyn's skill in both waxes. She even got me hooked on the brazilian wax. It wasn't as painful as everyone I know had said it was, and it was over in a couple minutes (I've had waxes before that last more than 30 minutes!!!). I returned a month later and was put in the hands of another waxer. Just as good. I'm pretty sure every waxer at Marilyn skincare is fabulous because I've been going every month and I've never had a problem with any of them. Keep it up ladies!!!
I also like the lobby area and the ladies that work behind the reception counter. They love to strike up a conversation and they always make sure to offer you a glass of sangria or tea before your appointment. I like being able to sit by the window and unwind a bit. So much better than being stuffed in a small dimly lit waiting area, like some of the other spas i've been too.
Make sure you book your waxing appointments well in advance though (at least a couple weeks, more if you want an appointment with Marilyn). Especially around holidays and in the summer.

I received a gift certificate for a pedicure 6 months ago, and finally was able to use it. However, the pedicure menu has completely changed- they longer offer the various luxurious peducures included on their website (no princess pedicure, latte pedicure, etc), and do not use the lovely throne-like cushioned seats. Instead, they have one pedicurist who conducts a very business-like pedicure and provides heavy scoldings for not taking care of one's feet while you sit in a chair with your feet in her lap. This was far from a relaxing pedicure, and though she did a nice job of cleaning up my feet and nails, I left feeling more stressed than when I arrived. (She also does not believe in nail polish, so don't go if you're looking to walk away with pretty red toenails)

As a final note, a friend and I went together, and had sequential appointments, but were very sharply told we were not allowed to sit in the room while the other was having her nails done because it would be "too distracting". While I can understand why this may be true, again, it felt entirely inappropriate to be scolded. I will never return for a pedicure.

I received a gift certificate for a pedicure 6 months ago, and finally was able to use it. However, the pedicure menu has completely changed- they longer offer the various luxurious peducures included on their website (no princess pedicure, latte pedicure, etc), and do not use the lovely throne-like cushioned seats. Instead, they have one pedicurist who conducts a very business-like pedicure and provides heavy scoldings for not taking care of one's feet while you sit in a chair with your feet in her lap. This was far from a relaxing pedicure, and though she did a nice job of cleaning up my feet and nails, I left feeling more stressed than when I arrived. (She also does not believe in nail polish, so don't go if you're looking to walk away with pretty red toenails)

Pros: Lovely waiting area, friendly reception staff

Cons: Awful pedicure

.

I had a gift certificate for a manicure & pedicure, and had never been here before. But I was disappointed by the Manicure & Pedicure. There was no pampering, no soaking, not even a little foot or hand massage. The woman was nice and chatty, but the service was just average. I guess they don't even use those nice cushioned throne-like sofas in the room, where you would be able to get your feet soaked, etc. I would think about going back for another service, but not for a mani/pedi.

Pros: Staff are nice, and you get wine while you wait.

Cons: parking

.

I've never been so pampered in my life! Massage, facial, manicure, pedicure, wax, everything! Even the waiting room was a treat!

The Brazilian wax is a must, though. Quick and as pain-free as possible, Sharon not only gives you an excellent result but her warm nature takes away all awkward feelings normally accustomed to "waxes of the nether".

If you're taking your car, you may have some parking problems, so I would recommend taking a bus. There's a stop not a block away from the spa.

I went to many spas searching for the best brazilian and for a place that was a bit closer to home, I live in SSF. My search ended w/ me back at Marilyn's, they just can't be beat. I've been to three different people at Marilyn's and each were the most friendly and most thorough. My latest was with Sharon and I highly recommend her. I've had brazilians w/ both hard and soft wax, Marilyn's uses soft strip wax and I find it more painless than w/ hard wax. Also, the prices are very reasonable, and if you want to go BARE, they do it at Marilyn's. I was unhappy that other locations didn't wax "front and back". The phone staff are curteous and friendly when booking appts., and the rest of the staff is great as well. The atmosphere is the most cozy and welcoming than that of the many other spas I went to, and it's nice that they have flavored water and wine while you wait. I've never had to park more than a block away either, there's almost always parking on the cross street, Sacramento. Also, the hours are flexible. If you've never gotten a brazilian, you should definitely have your first experience be at Marilyn's! I also can't wait for my first facial there. MARILYN'S IS A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND!

After having facials in other SF day spas over the past five years, I would have to say this was the best facial I have had!!

Monica was so friendly and helpful, when I called to set up my appointment.

I really loved the treatment itself. The massage was heavenly and Carla did a wonderful job on all aspects of the facial. I appreciated that she was very gentle with my sensitive skin. I am so happy at how pretty my skin looks- not blotchy at all.

I am just so happy to share my positive experience. I hope to come back soon for a massage.

I saw Marilyn 3 times for brow design and tint and overall I was disappointed. The first time I got hives that lasted a week (never gotten hives in my life). The brows were shaped too natural and bushy for me so the next time I asked her to thin them out a little. I dont think she really did because a couple days later I couldnt even tell that I got them shaped. She didnt even cut the long hairs that grow up. I hate overplucked, thin brows but Marilyn does brows that are at the other extreme. Plus one of the staff charged me the wrong amount on my credit card and after I told her she made kind of a big deal out of it and it turns out she thought the price was something other than it was. Maybe she was charging everyone wrong!

I have been to other places and trust me, Marilyn deserves her stellar reputation! This is the best place to go for eyebrows, brazilians, and facials... everything else. I recently got a gift certificate for a luxe facial at a very high-profile spa and was not only disappointed with the quality of the facial but the pressure I received to buy her products as well. It made me appreciate Marilyn and her exceptionally thoughtful and skilled estheticians who really take a genuine human interest in each of their clients.

I came cross this place through kron4 for their beauty bonaza and got a gift certificate for 50% off. Both me and my friend got a massage and it was awasome!!! Nadja was really good with her hand and very knowledge about different types of essential oil. In addtion, the staff are very friendly, decor is cozy and it feels like home. They have wine, cucumber water and various tea bags to chose from. While my friend was getting her massage, I sat in the lobby and read while drinking some nice hot tea. I will def. go back again!!

Marilyn is THE BEST! There are only so many women that have seen the places that Marilyn has and my mother is one of them. I feel, like other women, totally confortable with her and her brazilian technique isnt painless perse but your so relaxed with catching up with one another time really does fly. You leave thinking, I should take that woman out for a beer.

Marilyn Jaeger Skincare Salon is the best! Marilyn has gone out of her way to make the Royal Treatment Facial a relaxing and luxurious experience. You haven't lived until you have had Marilyn do your brows!

She makes every client feel like they are the only person in the salon. Sharon's facials are awesome!

I just had a brazilian bikini wax done by Elizabeth, and it was great - she's awesome! Not only did she do a very thorough job (making sure she got everything and that it was even...always important), she made it almost painless and was very warm and friendly through the whole procedure. One of the great things about MJ Skinecare, they're open late so evening appointments are available. I highly recommend!

Marilyn is the best. Not only super skilled, but a good time (which is important when you're getting hair ripped out). I only trust my brows to her. Bikinis the best, too. Have lived in SF since 1989 and have tried the competition.

I don't know why everyone likes this place. I though it was fine. But not great. Plus I had to take my kiity to the vet that same day and I told them my kitty's health is more important that my bikini line but they woudn't let me re schedule because i think that they are too big for their hair tweezing britches. Go some where where they car about kitty health

if you are looking for a _full_ brazillian this is not the place to go. Only one type of wax is used, (no hard waxes) and the staff is not used to this request. If you are looking for a quick bikini wax or another service in a heights location, go for it, they are nice and professional.

I went to Marilyn Jaeger for a brazillian wax due to the high rating on Citysearch. I found that they didn't do a thorough job at removing all the hair. Sure it's fast, sure it's not painful, but I would still prefer someone who can remove all the hair in the area.

I've been going to Marilyn since before MJ skincare existed. There is no better place. My personal vice is the modified brazilian bikini wax which Marilyn makes bearable even during pregnancy!

Most recently I've had the best pedicure of my life - done by the talented Jane. I saw her about 10 days before I went on a month long vacation during which I was in pools, on beaches, walking everywhere and having my flip-flop exposed toes stepped on by both of my children. For 6 weeks my polish never chipped, flaked or lost its color and shine. I finally had to take it off when it started to grow out! Run, don't walk, and take advantage of all they have to offer!!

i was treated so warmly when i went into marilyn jaeger's studio...both by marilyn and her support staff. that, in combination with the awesome waxing service (perfect brows) made me feel great. usually, when i walk into a salon, i feel sort of a hipper-than-thou attitude from the staff...not here. they are kind and caring, and have geniune smiles.

marilyn even took the time to assess my skin and recommend a skin care regime during my eyebrow wax! above and beyond...

i'm going back for a facial!

I have been looking for a great spa that offers full body massages in the local bay area for a LONG time! I finally found it. After traveling from Alameda to St. Helena for the last 3 years, I found her here at Marilyn Jaeger's SkinCare Spa, her name is Jen. She gives THE BEST massage yet! The atmosphere she created was very calm and soothing. She has an incredible ability to find the trouble spots before you can point them out. I was VERY, VERY pleased and HIGHLY recommend Jen as your masseuse of choice. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!

No one does it better than Marilyn and her staff. I swear that I have had waxes and facials by them all, and they are the best. The facials are luxurious and pampering, my skin has never looked better. If you want the fastest Brazilian wax on the planet, go to this spa!!

When I first went to Marilyn I had to tell everyone that it was my best salon experience ever. The staff is so professional, personable, experienced and they have excellent customer service. I was told Marilyn does the best eyebrow waxing/shaping and it's soooo true! I highly recommend you to try the salon out.

Marilyn does an amazing job with brows and brazilians! Plus she's super nice and makes the whole uncomfortable waxing thing go by quickly and as painless as possible. I only wish I could afford to hit up her spa more often! I've had brazilians done by other estheticians because it can be hard to get an appt with Marilyn and haven't been as satisfied but the staff is also really polite and I love the atmosphere there!
