E'Shee is simply the best. Let me count the reasons...
1) LYLA - ask for Lyla, her work is top notch and she is a very sweet person as well. Sometimes I like to read & other times we chat. I never have to check my nails for quality with her. She is wonderful!
2) CONSISTENCY - sometimes I come in and if Lyla is not available I don't have to worry about the other techs - they are ALL good. I have been coming here for 5+ years now and in all that time of getting classic pedi & gel mani every 3-4 weeks I have only had 1 or 2 times when I thought the job was average. Never bad. If you come back in with a broken nail or quality issue ask for Von, the manager and he will make sure the issue is resolved.
3) HONEST about TIME - I love that Von/the staff will tell you the actual wait estimate instead of what most salons do and say they can fit you in when really there is a wait. There is a Home Goods & Tuesday Morning literally next door so Von will let you know the wait time and you can go shop and come back. I hate when people tell me 5 minutes and its really 30 so I appreciate that Eshee respects my time!
4) VALUE - for the price point you cannot beat E'shee. I have had more expensive mani/pedis at the 4 Seasons and the quality was the same or worse. The prices are on cheaper side in my opinion which is great b/c then I don't feel bad for coming every 3 weeks. Super affordable.
I have tried dozens of other salons in Austin and in DFW and at this point it is not worth it even when my mom offers to pay for me to get them done in DFW, I just wait until I can get back to E'Shee. I have friends that have moved to South Austin that still will make 30-45 min drive to E'shee because the value/consistency. Von is a great manager and the whole staff is friendly (none of that feeling where you wonder if someone is chatting about you!). I highly recommend seeing Lyla as she is my favorite but everyone is wonderful. This is my nail salon home! Thank you guys for making each trip to get my nails done a mini spa vacation, I really appreciate it!
Other notes - free drinks/soda/frozen marg type drink, appointment not needed (I prob make an appt 50% of the time & 50% of the time just walk in). Enjoy!
