Customer Testimonials

I have been going to Nelson Spa and Salon since early high school. The salon is relaxing an the services are of the highest quality. I have been seeing Nilce for skin care for half my life - I trust her so much that I still drive down from Boston to get one of her customized facials. They basically saved me from acne throughout my younger years an now keep my skin fresh. Diane also gives wonderful healing massages (I'm a runner so I need them!) and all the stylists KNOW hair - they give great cuts AND opinions. Nelson is truly a relaxing salon and spa where one can surrender his or her worries and walk out confident - I would strongly recommend it to anyone for the best in hair, skin, and body care!


Nelson Spa is an absolute must for any woman, or man, serious about obtaining and keeping their face and skin beautiful. I have been going to Nelce for 10+ years and her skin care techniques and facial spa equipment are always current, she is a true professional; highly educated and well-trained. I also prefer the European product line they offer; it keeps my skin hydrated and healthy until the next treatment session. She offers many services, always with excellent results, which keeps me an absolute loyal client. And, don't forget Diane for massages! Heaven.


Friendly, professional, creative staff who are passionate about what they do and cover the full gamut of beauty needs. Highly recommended!


This salon has a great atmosphere - relaxing yet upbeat, very nice. They offered me coffee and were very friendly. I got a great hair cut and color from Amy, who listened to my ideas, made suggestions, and I was very happy with the outcome. Fernanda gave me a great manicure. They also do "med spa" procedures here, like Botox and lasers, which I have not tried. The salon processes were reasonably priced for the quality of the surroundings and the work. I will be back!
