Great Salon! – Charming salon with a terrific group of talented stylists. Everyone is super accommodating. It has a great atmosphere and is reasonably priced. Eva is outstanding with color and cuts. Book early!!
Majorly Disappointed! – Let me preface this review by saying I have never written a review of a place, but after my experience here, I felt compelled to! After reading great reviews I decided to try Pink Cheeks out. I was assigned to Andrea. Everyone was nice and I only waited about 10-15 minutes. Then when Andrea came in, she started on me right away without asking me any preferences (i.e. I usually don't like to get waxed on the top). She was super quick, but didn't take the time to "hold" the skin or seem to try to make things any less painful. Now, I know waxing is a painful process...I have had bikini waxes before, but this was unusually painful! She also didn't seem to really check her work afterwards (i.e. check for stray hairs), and she left wax on me. Finally, to top it off I bruised immediately on my left side...something that has never happened. When I called the place to complain, they simply said "sorry", and that "bruising happens". I guess I would have hoped for a greater show of PR in some way or another. Long story short, I will NOT be going back.
Aya is the Best! – Though the receptionist ins't always very friendly, I continue to go back because Aya is fabulous! I went to 2 other women there, including Cindy, and both left me in pain and less than thrilled with the work. Aya is efficient, thorough and makes the process about as painless as you can hope for.
Pink Cheeks is the place to go! – I gotta say, in the 7 years I have been going to Pink Cheeks, I have never had anything to complain about. I was just there today and Cindy is awesome. She has a wonderful energy about her and is genuine! She gets the job done!.....I have recommended my friends there and they love it! For the people here that expected waxing to be painless; you must be crazy! and to say that it was painless elsewhere? hahaha! go tell that to someone that's gonna believe you!......Cindy Rocks!♥
All Good Things Must Come to an End – I used to LOVE this place, but it seems like things are going south. I had not been back for some time as I had been in New York and also tried Wax on Melrose. The first thing I noticed, there was not the normal "walk in" crowd there Saturday morning. And then when I went to get my service, I found Cindy was not as thorough as usual, and whereas in the past the bikini wax had been relatively painless, it HURT like hell. And that's because she used much wider strips than in the past. I think she used 4 strips to take off all the hair down there. And she did not inspect her work. I still have hair in hard to reach places. I also noticed that she no longer placed her hand down on an area after she ripped the material off. In the past, this soothed the area and counterbalanced the pulling of the hair. Sadly, I don't think I will go back. I think Cindy is great, and she has a wonderful energy. But I guess things change. :(
Believe the Hype – I'm 23, and finally decided to get a wax for my upcoming trip to Hawaii. A lot of people told me about Pink Cheeks (and was even featured in the movie Bruno, haha) so I decided to try it...
I was late for my appointment, so I had to wait behind a few people, probably about 45 min. The stout little receptionist seemed as though she was PMSing, or something, and came off a little rude.
It was my turn, and Cindy was my 'waxer.' Let me tell you... it F@&cking hurts - I almost wanted to leave!!! She was polite about it, and talked me through it. It hurts waaaaaay more than getting a tattoo, i.m.o. You have to understand that this salons waxing will hurt a lot because it's going to last!
The results of the wax lasted a REALLY long time, and I totally recommend Pink Cheeks!!!
Pink Cheeks is AWESOME! – I've been many times... everyone is so nice and makes you feel comfortable (even in uncompromising positions)! My girl Aya does an AMAZING wax job, both on the private areas and eyebrows. Cannot recommend this place enough! Will be making an appointment for next Wednesday if Aya is working =)
One thing is, they do prefer cash for the tip.
REVIEWS ARE NOT FOR REAL ? – I CAN'T BLELEVIE IT YOU GUYS HAVE ALL THE TIME TO WRITE ALL THE NOTE ARE YOU SURE YOUR REVIEWS ARE FOR REAL ?
I just got back from visiting Pink Cheeks Salon. I have been going there for awhile now and even tho I only see Cindy, she and I talk about things like she was my true friend. She gives me insight, feedback and objective perspective on things I struggle with in life while she is working on me and I always come out of there feeling better, in every way. Her quality of work is excellent. My life is falling apart right now (-money, -relationship - job) but I had the need for a wax, something to make me feel better, cleaner... so I went in to Pink Cheeks. When I went up front to pay the very nice receptionist told me that my wax was a “Love Donation” from Cindy. Cindy, it’s those thoughtful gestures that you do that make you the wonderful person that you are. No wonder that your lobby is packed, that your employees respect and love you and that you are the success in business that you are. You are a genuinely kind person. P.S. It was also very mind-blowing to pass the singer “Pink” coming down the hallway while I was leaving. Whoa! She is SO COOL!!! Double Pleasure Day at Pink Cheeks! Thank You Cindy!
Long Wait, Rude employees, Very Poor Job – I have been getting waxed for about 6 years now. I recently moved to Los Angeles from San Diego, I was asking around to get a recommendation of a good place to get a bikini wax. A guy I have been dating suggested Pink Cheeks because he read that where a lot of P*rn Stars go, and you know they have to look good down there so I checked it out. When I got there it seemed as if I was in a flea market bunches of thing surrounded me for sale and not just salon products. There were homemade crafts and snacks I found that to be a bit off. I was 10 mins early for my appt and I wasn't seen until 45 mins after my appt. There were 3 other women and a man waiting as well. One woman grew anxious and went to ask how much longer it would be, then the receptionist looked at the appt schedule and went around to all of us waiting customers pointing at us individually saying she has a Brazilian, she has a playboy, she has an an@l bleaching, and he has a full back wax so about 45 more mins. I was appalled. I know it's not a Dr.s office but I would still think it to be confidential. When I finally got called she pretty much just put me in the room and shut the door, not knowing if I was a first timer or anything didn't give any instruction at all. During the process I found her to be very short with me not responding to attempted conversation, the process was very painful like I said I have been doing this for years and never has it ever been this painful. She only used about 5 strips which as another reviewer stated as well but she mentioned it like it was a good thing when in fact it's not, She pulled out hair from different areas with one strip hair that grows in different directions in each area if you don't pull the correct way you get severe in growns which I did. It took a whole 3 months for my hair to grow back in properly (+there was 3 months of itching and discomfort from the ingrowns) Then she says "up on all fours" I felt like I was being treated like a dog. Then she glopped the wax on so thick in every crevice in the back, even areas that don't grow hair. Needless to say it was very uncomfortable and painful, unlike the other professional places Ive been to. When she was done she just walked out of the room and said nothing. I went to the front to go pay and the receptionist was on a personal phone call and was ignoring me for a good 3 mins she then puts her call on hold takes my payment and before giving my change says "How much do you want to tip" I thought this was rude and unprofessional. Over All BAD experience * * * NOT RECCOMENDED * * *
