Bad customer service -- there was a mix-up with the time of the appointment (I thought 3:30, they said 3:00) and when I listened to the appointment reminder and called to reschedule, they said I could not because there was a 24 hour

Don't go - THEY RIP OFF customers. I went there for a Dr Haushka facial, which was good - I would give it 4 stars if they didn't change the price after the service. I had a La Nirvana coupon for $60 for 90 minutes, and the manager insisted

The prices were a bit out of my range but I wanted to try it anyway. Luckily I was able to find a discount with a google search and found the site LaNirvana, where you can get ridiculous deals on spas and salons like Carriage House. I

I've been coming at the Carriage House Salon for a couple of years and always had good haircuts. However, I recently had the worst wax ever - - the theapist double-dipped in the wax, succeeded in burning and bruising my skin and despite my request for "just a clean-up", she waxed half my brows off and did an even worse job on my bikini wax. I will never have any skin treatment done at the Carriage House.

Pros: Easy to make appointment

Cons: Staff VERY uneven in their ability

The Carriage House Salon is an amazing salon tucked away up on the second floor of a beautiful, old brick and wood building in the heart of Cambridge Square. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is friendly and helpful. I have gotten multiple haircuts here over the years and they are always consistently my favorites. You will walk out of this salon feeling beautiful.

When I made the appointment, I asked for a paraffin pedicure which I'd never had before. I got there and the pedicurist did just a normal pedicure. I was a little confused and so I asked the front desk person if that was a paraffin. She said no, apologized and offered for the pedicurist to do it over. I said that it was not necessary, but she insisted. This was all very nice of her. She went to the back room to get the pedicurist and here is where things when downhill: The woman came up to me and started screaming "It's not my fault you don't know what you want! You didn't tell me! You're wrong! Rawr!" Don't go to Carriage House unless you like paying people to scream at you.

I got my eyebrows done here with Erin, and they look great! She really listened to what I wanted without my having to give too much instruction. Also they do the waxing in a relaxing spa room on a comfy bed (not just a sink chair in the back of the salon like some places). She spent a good 20 or so minutes making sure it was perfect. I will absolutely be back!

I moved to Boston three years ago and have been bouncing around from salon to salon trying to find someone who actually listens to my ideas and can give me tips on new things to try or ways to make my idea work given my hair type (straight and fairly fine). A friend recommended me to Mindy and I can't say enough good things about her! She was really nice and friendly and had great ideas for my cut. It looks absolutely wonderful and I may even have the guts to go really short this summer with her behind the wheel. The salon is cute and is relaxing without any pretense. And I was so pleasantly surprised to have her use a bunch of different products on my hair and never suggest that I buy anything. When I got to the counter, I was able to get a small bottle of one of the products to try it out on my own, but again, no pressure. I highly recommend this place!

Pros: Cute salon, really nice stylists and staff.

Cons: None so far.

I procrastinated until I couldn't stand my roots anymore, and they fit me in with - no lie - one hour's notice, and then the stylist spent two hours with me. I saw Maki. Her consultation was great (talked me out of layers that really would have been disastrous on my baby-fine, poker-straight hair), she was easy to talk to, and gave me the most natural-looking two-color highlights I've had in years (maybe ever)! The place has a cute, unpretentious spa atmosphere, and the whole staff was really personable. It's not super easy to find from the street if you've never been there, but it is just stone's throw from the Church St. exit of the Harvard Sq. red line stop, and is right next to the Starbucks if you need a landmark to find it. All in all, I had a great experience and, as a new resident of Cambridge, I can definitively say that I have a new hairdresser here. It was so nice, I even scheduled myself a Dr. Hauschka facial for next week (having seen the other posts rave about it). Call Maki!

P.S. - The price for my two-color partial foil highlights on my super long hair was shockingly reasonable.

I have very difficult thick curly hair, and Arthur at the Carriage House Salon is one of the few stylists I have been to who is able to manage it and actually make me feel good about myself after leaving the salon. Not only that, but he is a pleasure to talk to, and works very quickly. The salon itself is very cute, and they do not pressure you to buy their hair products, which is a definite plus.

Carriage House Salon is amazing! I called and got an appointed for the same day for my very first facial. The place is adorable and very comfortable. I had a fantastic time being pampered by Erin who is absolutely incredible! She asessed my skin and personalized my facial on the spot so that I would get the services best for me - not just what's the most expensive. I left feeling wonderful, calm, and refresed and had totally different skin. I've already booked my next appointed and recommend Carriage House highly.

For my first facial EVER, I wasn't sure where to go. But a dear friend recommended "any place that does Hauschkas." On top of that, I was dead-set on avoiding Newbury pretentiousness. Enter CHS! The vibe in the salon was perfect: warm, relaxing, with a mixed clientele. Every employee was friendly -- particularly Erin, the aesthetician, who wiped the nastiness out of my pores, sweetly. Basically, it's a $100 for a new you. Do it!

Pros: location, low-attitude from employees, the best product line

Cons: salon is a bit small (but cozy!)

I love this salon. After living in Boston for four years, I finally found a salon where I like to get my haircut and this is the place. They did a wonderful job. I love love love the staff, the atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming, it is easy to get to and their hours are great. I recommend going here to anyone for a haircut for curly or straight hair or any kind of spa treatment. I can't wait to go back for my next haircut.

If you want a facial that is out of this world, you've got to visit the Carriage House. They feature the Dr. Hauschka 'Classic' facial, which is a cross between a holistic skin treatment, a relaxing massage (they rub your feet AND lymph areas), and a retreat to a peaceful place far away from the real world. Seriously, this was the best facial I've ever had. I can't wait for my girlfriend's brithday to get here so I can give her this as a gift.

After I visited the Carriage House Salon and Spa last week, I could not believe that somebody posted anything negative about this wonderful place. From the moment I entered the salon, I felt completely relaxed. After getting my hair cut and styled I felt like a new woman. I have difficult curly hair, so I was thrilled with the results. I can't think of a better salon experience than this. When I left I looked and felt fabulous - what could be better than that? This place is truly a find.

Carriage House offers all the spa services, but their focus is haircuts. They specialize in cutting curly hair and do a special Ouidad curly haircut. Prices vary by skill level of the stylist. I've had a great experience everytime I've been there, and the location is convenient too.
