I had had the Mind, Body and Soul package at the Bruntsfield location today. I aimed to destress and feel relaxed by the end of it. Thanks to Sarah that's exactly what I got. The massage pressure was perfect, the relaxing music was nice and we had a lovely conversation throughout. Thank you Sarah :) More...

Love Zen!!! Had to come and write a review as this was the first time I've ever had to eventually remove my polish due to my nails growing out rather than the polish chipping away and looking bad. I have been coming to Zen every now and then for years now. My sister and I came for Vinylux manicures and the staff were very nice and attentive. Best of all, my polish has officially lasted 11 days with zero chips which is amazing! This is after my holiday, which included four flights and loads of physical activity. Thanks Zen! More...

A little sister to the one on Hanover st but the service is just as good and the therapists are really lovely. It can be tricky to get an evening appointment as they tend to be very booked up, but this is a great spot for a wee bit of pampering when i need some me-time! Highly recommended.

I had the 60 minute microdermabrasion facial a couple of weeks ago with Ashley and I cannot recommend it enough. It was one of the most relaxing treatments I have had. Ashley was extremely professional, knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. She tailored the treatment to my skin and what I wanted to achieve and I am very happy with the results. My skin has never looked so good - it is still glowing two weeks later! The salon is lovely and so were all of the staff, it’s also great that it’s open late evening as I could go straight from my treatment to bed! I am hoping to return next time I’m in Edinburgh. Thank you! More...

My daughter gave me a voucher for Zen last Christmas and I finally got around to using it last week. Had a facial which was so amazing I booked in for a massage the following week. Both incredibly luxurious. As a busy therapist and counselor with clinics in England and Edinburgh I was feeling somewhat burnt out and really needed some me time. Can't wait to return to Edinburgh (next month) for more! Easily the best facial and massage I've had in a very long time. More...

My mum and I visited today and each had a pedicure. Absolutely loved the whole experience the girls made it such a special treat ( it was part of her birthday present) and from the minute we walked in we were made to feel so welcome. My therapist Hannah even helped me with my toenail issues as it had recently came off - by the end of my pedicure you wouldn’t have known! She completely went over and above the call of duty and understood my stress about going on holiday with no toenail bless her. Thank you so much all at zen we will 100 percent recommend you and will definitely return. More...

I've visited Zen at Hanover street many times previously for treatment and have always loved it and felt rejuvenated! This time however, I would like to say a special thanks to Emma who was my therapist when I popped in for a back massage yesterday. I can not sing her praises enough!! By far the best back massage I've had in a long time, better than most other hotel spas around Edinburgh city centre that I have tried! She made me feel so relaxed and comfortable and checked beforehand and throughout of what kind of pressure I would prefer as my back is a maze of tense knots! All the staff at Hanover street are always very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend! Thankyou Emma and the rest of the girls at Zen - Hanover Street xx More...

Wish I could remember the lady who did my waxing to be able to praise her through this yelp review.Not only was so lovely and understand of my nerves after a horrible experience I had just previously had BUT she was a wonderful waxer as well, perfect shaped brows!!! Didn't go over the same bit too many times so no sensitive legs for meeeee (yay) all tho she left a few stray hairs on my upper leg but it was probably due to my different hair rate so I'm not fussed. Wonderful experience, only wish I wasn't just traveling so I could come back More...

I went to Zen for the first time today having received a voucher for Christmas. I decided to book the 40 minute custom facial and it was absolutely heavenly! The room and bed are so cosy and relaxing and the treatment itself was absolutely perfect. I left feeling totally relaxed and my skin completely rejuvenated and feeling amazing. I only wish I'd booked the longer facial as I didn't want it to end! I had a choice of feet, hand and arms or scalp massage while the facial peel was on and the scalp massage was so relaxing. All of the staff were super friendly and lovely and Louise on reception made the perfect cup of tea for me while I was waiting having arrived early. Will definitely return when I get another chance for some rare me time! ��� More...

I came for a massage on Monday - I think my therapist was Chloe. (I hope I've got that right!) I was absolutely delighted with everything. Treated professionally from the moment I walked in to the end of my outstanding, blissful, heavenly massage. No wonder they are so award winning, the most beautiful stylish salons and luxurious darkly lit rooms to highly professional experienced and caring staff. My treatment was altered after Chloe uncovered my needs and concerns and she advised against what I had initially thought I needed. She was professional and reassuring and knowledgable and I full trusted in her to give me a great experience which she did, above and beyond my expectations. I cant recommend enough. I'm hopefully going to get some vouchers for Zen for my Christmas!! More...

Thank you so much to Zen for their wonderful idea to offer complimentary massages to those fighting or recovering from cancer during breast cancer awareness month. I was in awe of Alison's knowledge as an oncologist trained therapist and she tailored the session perfectly to keep it beneficial and safe. It was, quite simply, one of the best treatments I've had this year. And that's Christmas sorted as I must come back. Thank you � More...

Cannot recommend this salon highly enough! I've been a regular for many years now and I'm always delighted with my treatments. Melissa at Teviot is just fantastic. A superb therapist and such a lovely friendly person. She is exceptionally knowledgable about all the treatments she offers and the products she uses too. I recently had an amazing murad facial with a neom candle oil massage added it - just bliss. Helen at Hanover is a master with HD brows, couldn't have been happier with the results. By far the best salon in the city! More...

I went to get my eyebrows tinted and wax and had a wonderful experience. I was 30 minutes late to my appointment (called in advance to say that I was going to be late) and Shawna, who took my call and did my brows was extremely nice and accommodating. Not only was she nice on the phone and with my tardiness but she really took time to understand what I wanted (I'm very precious about my brows as I imagine a lot of clients are). She did a great job!! I don't have very thick eyebrows and she didn't take off much but made them look much thicker. I live in Glasgow but would absolutely buy a train ticket to get them done again, no question! Shawna was extremely nice! More...

Great afternoon- I had a 60 minute massage which I had a slight trepidation about because of an injury. Shouldn't have been worried as Sam was really understanding and discussed my concerns and tailored her therapy. My friend had a lovely facial at the same time. Lovely surroundings and wonderful customer service. Nice to know that years after my first visit to Bruntsfield, Zen is still brilliant. More...

Yet another fantastic HD brow treatment from Hamideh at Teviot Place. This was my second treatment with her since she started.

Why does one pay £38 to get their brows done? Well, in my case, it was solely to answer that question...Honest to god, I do not know what i'm doing with my eyebrows. I have a little gel sticky thing that I occasionally smush through them and I can pluck the odd hair that is out of place, but shaping/filling/anything remotely close to complicated... I'm at a loss. Thankfully, my brows grow SO SLOWLY, that I can get away with a wax every 6 months and a cheapo at home tint (because blonde eyebrows and black hair looks silly).So while I was making the rounds looking for my yearly brow tidy, I found Zen with its 5 star following and the elusive HD Brows. I poked around the internet a bit and couldn't seem to find anything that truly explained WHY HD Brows cost so much more... sure there's a big pitch about 7 different methods, yada yada, but honestly, it didn't seem THAT much fancier than a simple wax/tint. But seeing as though I am brow clueless and again, only have to bite the bullet and actually pay attention to them once/twice a year, I booked.... and damnit, I'm going to be the gal who spends £38 to get her brows done again.The "magic" of this brow method is really just paying better attention. The gal who did mine cleaned up the top, adjusted the tint twice, waxed, threaded and generally fine tooth combed my brows. The most useful part was afterwards, she walked me through how to fill the sparse bits and I actually might wield that brow pencil with a little more purpose now. The big money making difference: I have eyebrows that look like I actually care about that fact. It was a, "Oh THAT'S what they're supposed to look like" moment.How about the location? The place is bright, clean and the folks are cheerful. It's easy to book (online, in person or over the phone) and they have ridiculously late hours for a spa type spot (open until 10pm on the weekdays!!). Final verdict? I don't think i'd be an HD brow gal if I had to do it with any regularity, but I was impressed enough to return in a few months when they get out of hand. Even if you have to wax/tidy every few weeks, it might be worth flinging this into the mix once or twice a year. This place was professional and I'll definitely keep an eye on what else they offer.I'm gonna go wiggle my eyebrows in the mirror again now... More...

Everyone so often I think "wow I am hairy, I need a wax". I don't think this that often seeing as I am blonde, but it does occur from time to time.This branch of Zen lifestyle is just around the corner from me. I have often walked past and thought about going in, but the price list kind of scared me away. As a student equipped with a snapfax, I found out that I would get 40% off my first visit and 20% off all subsequent visits. This made it way more affordable, and I was able to get my hot wax.It was as "pleasant" as a wax treatment can be. The lady doing it was very friendly and calming. I was offered a drink before my treatment. It didn't hurt as much as it could have. Should I need a wax again in the next year, I will be back. The other treatments look lovely but way beyond my budget. More...

This place is inviting and warm, with lemon water, and cheerful staff. I went for a facial and they scanned my face to look for signs of aging, wrinkles, etc. Then they did an amazing facial. Well, it was a bit tingly and felt hot, but she told me it would, so I didn't start to worry until... No just kidding, I wasn't worried. My skin felt regenerated. They also carry Murad, which I like, so I got something called white brilliance. Hopefully it works. I also really dolled out for the clear&brilliant series of 3- had the first one now and man that is some intense slightly painful laser action, but after my face recovered (about 6 days) it looked really amazing. I looked at prices back in San Francisco and surprise it is actually cheaper to do it here so I'm gonna keep at it after my 3 are up ;) More...

I got a spray tan for going to NYC in early November for my birthday. The color looked good, but even after the shower it came off my white sheets.  Never had that happen before. It lasted about 3 days, when others last about 6 days, so another disappointment. But it's hard to compete with LA spray tans- it's pretty much an art over there. Zen was really great at making my naked self comfortable, which was a relief. More...

This is a top notch salon (or rather a chain of them) that has a very efficient system for booking and gifting, which I like very much. I used them for both via their website and was pleased. Their pedicures are top notch and I was impressed. I only knock a star off because it was still overpriced, but for the overall experience it was worth it. More...

I didn't realise how much I liked this salon until a recent experience where I was blown away by their customer service. I've gone to Zen on and off for the past several months to get waxes (of the more unpleasant variety) done for two main reasons: it's close by and they use 'hot wax' which works really well and hurts less. The staff are really friendly and the rooms and method of treatment is top class. It's also a bit pricey, which often made me waiver over whether I should look for somewhere else more affordable. A couple weeks ago I happened to be booked for an appointment just after there was a huge power outage in Bruntsfield (everyone blamed the trams, of course) and unfortunately waxing is a dangerous business when done by candlelight. Instead of turning me away or making me wait, the manager immediately called the other Zen salons and found an appointment for me at the Hanover St location. They paid for a taxi to take me there, made sure I was taken care of with an offer of refreshments on arrival and gave me a 25% discount on my treatment for 'the inconvenience'. I felt like a way more important customer than I actually am, showing that they put customer experience first and foremost. While I may not go here and get every treatment (though I would if I had endless income to spend!), I'll definitely continue to give them my business for the quality of service they've demonstrated.

I visit Zen In Bruntsfield all the time in my mind you couldn't get any better! When i moved to Edinburgh i was in need of a beauticians initially for my eyebrows to be done and theres quite a few salons in Bruntsfield/Morningside but Zen stood out because of there tasteful appearance and professional reception service. I first booked in for HD Brows which by the way is so worth it. But now i regularly have a sports massage , myriad facial and my hd eyebrows done. It is a bit more expensive than what i usually pay but the service of the receptionist, the beauticians doing the treatment are of such high standard. I now use their products on my face and it is a big difference on my skin.They do block bookings which can save you a bit of money in the long run, student discount and vouchers to purchase.I would definetly recommend this salon if your looking for a real pampering session, they also have branches over in Hanover street and Teviot Place.

I had a fantastic facial and massge at Zen Lifestyle Teviot Place. I am sure I fell asleep towards the end, it was that brilliant! Such a relaxing atmosphere, really friendly staff, and they gave me great professional advice on the skin products right for me. More...

I don't often get my legs waxed (too expensive) unless I am going to a special occasion or going away for a holiday somewhere warm. Every time I have had them done at Zen it has been great  very fast and professional. More...

Dearest Vag,I'm sorry I have to do this to you every few weeks, but I thought that this time was different. I know, I know it IS painful... but this place was less so wasn't it? You really did deserve the hot, less painful wax, as opposed to the strips for your delicate parts. Legs don't need the special treatment, so the rolly strips are ok for them... but not you. You're sensitive. Bridget, who was all up in your girl business, made sure you were fully hairless like a hypo-allergenic cat. And girl, you KNOW how much money this stuff costs! It was so worth it for the royal treatment you got there. Plus, I had a 10 pound off coupon, which lessened the sting even more. I'm taking you back there in 3 weeks to have it done all over again. I like you better all groomed like this... means we don't have to only get naked with hippies. Love, Steph More...

In first and second year of university I went here to get my eyebrows waxed as it was just across from the university buildings. It was already rather pricey when I got my brows waxed there, even with the student discount (Somewhere between £8 and £9) However, the pleasure I gained just from getting my eyebrows waxed was great. The staff are obviously very well trained. Now I am one of those strange individuals who loves getting their eyebrows waxed, especially when they put ointments on afterwards. Zen gave me the best waxing treatment I ever got. However, I stopped going after they raised their prices. I felt £11 for an eyebrow wax was a bit ridiculous for a student. I only wish I had more money, however. This is an amazing beauty clinic and I can only imagine how good their other treatments must be. Maybe I'll treat myself to a session here for my graduation.

I've only been here for waxing but this is my de-fuzz place of choice. Period. It's not cheap, but the place is so clean, staff so professional and just so relaxing. I have been to several places to get waxed across Scotland and also in Boston MA, and I can honestly say that this is the best place I have found both in terms of the quality of the wax, the lack of pain and the cleanliness. It is also the only place i trust with my eyebrows so I schedule in here whenever I come home. They send text message appointment reminders which is fab and also text offers - but I would rather more wax offers than facials/massage!Any of the staff here are great and the pricing is just the same regardless who does the treatment. They also stock Elemis products which i LOVE and have a good range of trial sizes/testers too. All the staff are friendly and approachable and will give advice on beauty/skin issues when getting waxed/plucked. My rountine of eyebrows, full leg, bikini, underarm usually takes around an hour and I can honestly say that it is the most painless wax I have had - and I'm a wimp. Oh and they - don't wax your eyebrows automatically they pluck instead (of course you can ask for a wax) which i love as it is less traumatic for the sensitive eye area.Only giving it 4 stars as it is quite expensive - if there could be some discount for regular customers or more package deals then that would make it a perfect 5!!!

I think that Zen has just won Salon of the year award again. It is well deserved. There are 2 salons - both quite close by and both are good. I have had a few treatments here including several on the week I got married. The staff here are lovely and very well trained. The treatments are great - I had the best sports massage ever her from a lovely Australian girl. The prices are about what you would expect - not cheap or too expensive and if you register with them you get texts with special offers. Think they have now branched out and are doing some clinical treatments - botox and such things. Their treatments are Elemis and they sell some nice products in the salons too. More...

I have been having facials for over 30 years and so have experienced many salons. Once I found Zen that was it, no need to go anywhere else. Have been going regularly for many years. Lovely surroundings, wonderful therapists, feel that my custom is valued. Never any hard sell and no intrusive chat, both of which I really appreciate. � oe More...

Went in for a signature shellac manicure at the Hannover street salon and the service was faultless! All the staff are welcoming and friendly, offering a glass of prosecco on arrival. My friend was booked in before me and they offered us a seat together at the mani bar. Would definitely recommend, I love my shellac! Can't wait to go back for a hot stone massage �� More...

Thank you so much to Zen for their wonderful idea to offer complimentary massages to those fighting or recovering from cancer during breast cancer awareness month. I was in awe of Alison's knowledge as an oncologist trained therapist and she tailored the session perfectly to keep it beneficial and safe. It was, quite simply, one of the best treatments I've had this year. And that's Christmas sorted as I must come back. Thank you � More...

I had an appt booked for 10, but there system had me as 9.50, even though they didn't send my the reminder text as they are meant too which would of highlighted our crossed times. I was getting the detox promotional package £69 instead of £162; 3 treatments. Mines was cut too two cause 'I was late and they were busy'. The massage and peel were nice, but if my treatment was 9.50 there time for an eighty minute treatment I should of been finished at 11.10 so I got lucky and got finished at 11.15. How do they fit 3 into that time frame and for that price. When I left the beautician that was 'too' busy to do the full treatment as are times conflicted as she was busy, when I was paying she was coming in with her latte and muffin and the place was dead ! Wouldn't recommend sorry More...

Incredible service, professional and knowledgeable staff and beautiful, relaxing surroundings. I recently had the Clear and Brilliant treatment followed by an Elizabeth Arden peel and have lost count of the number of people who have subsequently commented on how good my skin looks. I've also had excellent manicures and massages here and the early morning and late evening opening hours makes it easy to fit appointments around my schedule. Highly recommended. More...

Cannot recommend this salon highly enough! I've been a regular for many years now and I'm always delighted with my treatments. Melissa at Teviot is just fantastic. A superb therapist and such a lovely friendly person. She is exceptionally knowledgable about all the treatments she offers and the products she uses too. I recently had an amazing murad facial with a neom candle oil massage added it - just bliss. Helen at Hanover is a master with HD brows, couldn't have been happier with the results. By far the best salon in the city! More...

Wow! I cannot thank the lovely girls here enough for the friendly welcome and fabulous treatments when we came in on the 1st of July as part of a day of birthday celebrations for my Mum, auntie and cousin. Every aspect from booking over the phone to calling us a taxi to take us to our next treat was superb, and my lovely gel polish is still in perfect condition over a week later. Can't wait to visit again. Thank you so much girls More...

I went to Zen for the first time today having received a voucher for Christmas. I decided to book the 40 minute custom facial and it was absolutely heavenly! The room and bed are so cosy and relaxing and the treatment itself was absolutely perfect. I left feeling totally relaxed and my skin completely rejuvenated and feeling amazing. I only wish I'd booked the longer facial as I didn't want it to end! I had a choice of feet, hand and arms or scalp massage while the facial peel was on and the scalp massage was so relaxing. All of the staff were super friendly and lovely and Louise on reception made the perfect cup of tea for me while I was waiting having arrived early. Will definitely return when I get another chance for some rare me time! ��� More...

I came for a massage on Monday - I think my therapist was Chloe. (I hope I've got that right!) I was absolutely delighted with everything. Treated professionally from the moment I walked in to the end of my outstanding, blissful, heavenly massage. No wonder they are so award winning, the most beautiful stylish salons and luxurious darkly lit rooms to highly professional experienced and caring staff. My treatment was altered after Chloe uncovered my needs and concerns and she advised against what I had initially thought I needed. She was professional and reassuring and knowledgable and I full trusted in her to give me a great experience which she did, above and beyond my expectations. I cant recommend enough. I'm hopefully going to get some vouchers for Zen for my Christmas!! More...

I've visited Zen at Hanover street many times previously for treatment and have always loved it and felt rejuvenated! This time however, I would like to say a special thanks to Emma who was my therapist when I popped in for a back massage yesterday. I can not sing her praises enough!! By far the best back massage I've had in a long time, better than most other hotel spas around Edinburgh city centre that I have tried! She made me feel so relaxed and comfortable and checked beforehand and throughout of what kind of pressure I would prefer as my back is a maze of tense knots! All the staff at Hanover street are always very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend! Thankyou Emma and the rest of the girls at Zen - Hanover Street xx More...

My mum and I visited today and each had a pedicure. Absolutely loved the whole experience the girls made it such a special treat ( it was part of her birthday present) and from the minute we walked in we were made to feel so welcome. My therapist Hannah even helped me with my toenail issues as it had recently came off - by the end of my pedicure you wouldn’t have known! She completely went over and above the call of duty and understood my stress about going on holiday with no toenail bless her. Thank you so much all at zen we will 100 percent recommend you and will definitely return. More...
