WONDERFUL!! A Must Try!! – I love Venus! They make getting a wax so easy and painless, and the receptionist is very nice and competent. You can usually get a same day appointment, so they are great for a last minute treat. The mani/pedi special is a great deal, and they have tons of colors to choose from. The spa itself is clean and laid back, no uppity attitudes- you can relax and enjoy without feeling like everyone is in your business. All of the employees are professional, very polite, and great at the services they provide. Definitely check it out when you need some beauty tlc!!
1 Stop for Everything, Clean and Upscale – Always a Pleasure!
I get my waxing and mani/pedis here. It is super clean, the receptionist is very friendly, and everyone is experienced and nice. Venus uses the best wax that never burns, and the $40 mani/pedi Student Special on Monday and Tuesday is amazing!! I can usually get an appointment as soon as I need it, but call ahead just to make sure (865-7112, i have it programmed). I would recommend this spa to everyone, especially girls on the go who need a quick pick me up!!
Very Happy!! – I have always been happy with all of the services offered at Venus. Recently, I have been growing out my eyebrows, and Linda did the absolute best job shaping them. Gladys came in to offer her advice with the new, thicker shape, and I was so happy with the end results. Linda really took her time and did a great job, and only charged me for the regular price when I know it went over by at least 15 minutes. I think that Venus really knows what they are doing, and would recommend this spa to everyone!!
its ok not bad – Well I when to get my eyebrows done with Linda but than she call Bianca to do my eyebrows and she did a good Job but she had a lil mistake thanks God I could fix it but I do have to say that is too expensive I never pay $15 for my eyebrows............... but it is worth it.........
Best Spa Uptown!! – I just moved back to the University area, and am so glad I am even closer to Venus Experience. I can always get an appointment at Venus, even on the same day. Their prices have NOT gone up in the past few years, and I am always happy with my services.
LInda is the best eyebrow and bikini waxer I have ever gone to, and Gladys and Bianca are wonderful with mani/pedis! Venus has a ton of nail polish colors, and their space is very open and relaxing. Mercedes is one of the nicest people I have ever met!
Venus has saved me time and time again when I have events come up, or just need a little pick me up. You will not be disappointed if you give Venus a try!
Does anybody in New Orleans know what a Brazilian wax is? – I could not call what I got at Venus Experience a Brazilian wax. 1) I was so irritated afterward that my skin starting peeling, which has never happened before (and got waxed in Brazil for many years). 2) No Brazilian would ever use strip wax. Brazilians use hard wax that doesn't need strips. I have not yet found a salon in New Orleans that actually uses this wax, which is much less painless and much better for the skin. Unfortunately the strip wax is cheaper so many salons do not buy it.
Fantastic Brazilians with Linda – Venus Experience is GREAT. Linda is amazing--I go every 4 weeks and am never disappointed. She's extremely fast and nearly painless, and always does an excellent job. Mercedes was also good but Linda was faster and hers seem to last longer.
The prices are not too high for the quality of service and it's always easy to get an appointment. You can probably walk in pretty easily but I'd call ahead just to make sure.
Don't bother trying anywhere else, just go to Venus Experience and ask for Linda!
It is hard to find a quality waxing place as Venus – I recently moved from Louisiana to Dallas TX. Linda used to do my bikini waxing and eyebrown...... Now, here in Dallas, I have been for two years trying to find a place where I can get a great wax.... Really dont care about pricing......... I just need a professional place....... I have not find it yet.... Everytime I go to Louisiana I go to Venus to get all my waxing done there............... I highly recommend to make appointments ahead of time...........
Painfully Inexperienced – I just got my eyebrows waxed by Mercedes at Venus Experience, and it was like she'd never attempted to wax eyebrows before. After tentatively putting a few tiny dabs of cool wax on my eyebrows and taking them off at a weird, ineffective angle, she began tweezing them. When I told her I'd prefer more waxing to tweezing, she said something about broken hairs being too short--if they were broken, she broke them, because I hadn't had a wax in a month, and I certainly hadn't touched my eyebrows in the intermittent period.
After it was all over, she rubbed my eyebrows, harshly, over and over with her fingers until I had to ask her to stop--it hurt, and she wasn't applying anything soothing, just rubbing them! I just got home and looked in the mirror, and my entire brow is red and puffy. Yuck, seriously.
I've gone to Venus once before, when my eyebrows were waxed by Bianca, and she did a perfectly serviceable job. Seriously, though, if I were more courageous/more obnoxious, I'd go back and give them a piece of my mind. I'm in pain, and I look gremlin-esque. Don't go!
Clean/Relaxing/Experienced! – I'm new to the area and I went here after reading some positive reviews and found that they were right and it's a great place to get your eyebrows or any other wax done. Maria was very experienced, gentle, nice, and I also noticed they use a higher end wax for sensitive skin. It's hard to find a good place to get your eyebrows done well and the way you like it. She listened to me and she took her time to do a good job. I was very happy and I will be going again. She says she only works Mondays though which could be a little inconvenient for some people but I'm sure they have other girls that do a good job as well. :)
