Nails and More!
Meet Rachel and Allegra
Prior to opening Zaza, Rachel was (and still is) a realtor, constantly on-the-go and always in need of a proper manicure when she meets with clients. Her vision for Zaza was a modern nail salon, a place that offered consistent, high-quality nail care in a clean and eco-friendly environment. She saw a niche for a modern nail salon where she could entertain her top clients as well as hang-out with close friends. In 2004, Rachel opened Zaza and San Francisco got exactly what it needed, the ultimate manicure/pedicure experience.
A pioneer of non-toxic beauty treatments and a devoted mother of two boys, Rachel is equally devoted to the wellness of the Zaza community. She has created a safe and caring working environment which breeds kindness, familiarity, and consistency (many of the technicians have worked at Zaza for more than a decade!) With a love for all things beauty, it is only natural that Rachel also has a love for well-made, quality wine.
In January of 2016, Rachel met multi-talented sommelier, Allegra Angelo, and they collaborated on a wine and nail pop-up, called “Bottlecoat.” After a year of successful and “too much fun” pop-ups, Allegra grounded her wine roots at Zaza. Her curated list promotes no-headache and full-proof delicious wines from Europe and California. Together, Rachel and Allegra have connected the elements of wine and hospitality with beauty and wellness, one of its kind in California (and do we dare say, the country?) Where else can you get an eye-lash extension or a coconut pedicure alongside a glass of Grower Champagne followed by an organically certified Rosé from Provence? Oh, and did we mention, there is a wine lounge to chill? Get Polished, Drink Wine.
ZAZA’s Commitment To Non-Toxic Beauty
We have a wide variety of Vegan, DBP, Toluene & Formaldehyde Free Nail Polish. Our favorite nail polishes include Sparitual, Creative Nail Design, O.P.I., and Essie.
We make most of our scrubs and lotions in-house using natural ingredients, like sugar with a natural lotion base and essential oils without any preservatives or parabens.
We aim to be as organic as possible. We embrace phthalates-free, botanical-based, animal cruelty-free, and environmentally-friendly products. You can purchase most of our specialty products at our boutique.
Do you have the ZAZA in you? Join us! We’re always on the look-out for licensed manicurists, estheticians, and front desk receptionists. Please send your resume to jobs@ZAZAspa.com and note the position and ZAZA location that suits your fancy.
