Had a mani pedi last year in Nelson and this year I had a body scrub and facial and enjoyed it so much. Conveniently on Baker Street.

Decided to treat myself to a proper hair cut and got a complete hack job. The stylist seemed rushed and didn't take the time to look at my hair and listen to my needs. It was way shorter than discussed, but that is ok. What is not ok is the chunks missing from my hair, and how completely uneven it... More

Handy location but no free parking - perhaps consider the empty lot next door? Thoughtful refreshments.

We are located on the corner of Ward St and Baker Street downtown Nelson. We have the bus stop on one side of us and then Baker Street shops on the other... More

I have been to Tea Garden many times for body waxing and as you can imaging having your body hair ripped out can be a bit uncomfortable. But Megan's skill and soft touch makes it a very "bareable" experience. I highly recommend her services.

I have been going to the tea garden for eye brow shaping and waxing over the past couple of years. I am quite sensitive to the discomfort of the waxing and Megan is just the sweetest and gentlest person. She gets me through the anxious feeling of the anticipated discomfort with lovely conversation and gentle treatment. Plus my eyebrows look... More

I've been to Tea Garden a few times now for different services. The staff is always really great and friendly!!
