WORST waxing experience EVER! – Let me preface this by saying that I have had many Brazilian waxes over the past 5 years. I am a huge believer that this is a service everyone should make a part of their regular personal maintenance routine. I relocated to Seattle not long ago and found Wax On spa after doing extensive research online. Let me just say that my appointments at Wax On were the most excruciating waxing experiences of my life. Waxing is by no means painless under the best of circumstances, but this is ridiculous. I saw 3 different estheticians trying to find a good one (including Stephanie who seems to receive rave reviews here) and all were AWFUL. I left bleeding, bruised, and unable to walk without great pain. They also do not seem to employ a receptionist, so frequently when you have to make an appointment, it is a multiple step process of waiting for them to return your phone call. They run people through at a dizzying pace, and as a result, they cause physical damage to their clients while also doing a shoddy, incomplete job. For those who have only had experiences with Brazilians at Wax On, go somewhere else. You'll thank me for it.
i cant wait to go back! – My boyfriend and I just had our very first Brazilian waxes (our first waxes of any kind!) at your Belltown location. Melissa was a doll and took care of us in every way! She made us feel absolutely comfortable, which is very important for that kind of service! We were very impressed by the professionalism, courteousness and overall atmosphere of WaxOn Spa. I have already made our next "maintenence" appointment, we're hooked! We love you guys, you rock!! Thanks for everything & we can't wait to see you next month!!
I left disappointed – Not at all what I expected from a salon that does waxing exclusively. I got my eyebrows waxed and it was basically one strip above, one strip below on each. There was nothing waxed between my brows or any tweezing or trimming done of any sort. It has been quite a few months since my last waxing, so it did need to be done. I ended up having to do it myself when I got home. I have had better experiences at many other of our city's salons. Also, the atmosphere of the room is quite stark, not warm & inviting at all. The table was covered in basic towels and offered no head or neck support. I would suggest spending $5 more and going elsewhere. I will not be attending this salon again.
Best wax in town! – I've always had a good experience here. I've tried alot of places but this is still the best wax in town. I usually see Sandy but have had good waxes with some of the other gals when she was not available. Would recommend this place to anyone!!
Worst Waxing Experience Ever – By nature 'hair removal' isn't supposed to be like a vacation, but when you add to the fact that you are in a stark hosptial like room, with a blinding bright light glaring you in the face it doesn't help, no ambience at all, and that's just the begining. I had a brizilian and was left with torn and bleeding skin, bruising and after all that she didn't get everything. It bordered on traumatic. the wax they use is too hot, and doesn't come off easily.
Great wax, see Stephanie if you can get in, get some shea butter, your skin will love you! – I get waxed by Stephanie, she's great, really a lot of fun (I can't believe I'm saying that about waxing). I moved here from L.A. and missed my waxer, felt doubtful that I'd find someone that good. I picked up the Crave book and found Wax On. So lucky. My only complaint is that it's getting harder to get in to see Stephanie. So now I book in advance. Something funny, I was bragging about my waxer to a new friend and she asked me where I went, I said "Wax On". When I told her who I saw for my services she fell down laughing saying "I see Stephanie too!!!! Isn't she great!" Oh, and more shea butter please, that stuff is incredible.
Somewhat inconsistent – I think it can be up and down at this place and this time is was a miss... It cant always be great but I have been having some hard times with inconsistency. oh and when skincare is an afterthought that is exactly what you get, a subpar treatment. Goto other places for skin treatments....
Great Job! – Usually bikini waxes are awqward, but they've got it down to a science here. While I won't say it's totally painless, it's the least painful waxing experience I've ever had.
Premiere Brazilian waxes at a Belltown salon that's small on space, but huge on rock-and-roll attitude. – The Scene
There's nothing staid or ordinary about this spa, which caters to a self-empowered, self-possessed clientele of cute girls--and a fair number of gay and straight boys who care about managing the amount of hair on their bodis. Slogans like "What are you bitches looking at?" are on the sexy T-shirts and undies for sale that hang on the walls. Wax On's women are all about girl power, a saucy attitude and looking good.
This in-and-out day spa is aptly named, because it's the expert waxing that draws the crowds (in addition to Decleor facials and lash/brow tinting). Rooms are well-lit, spotless and sanitary, with beautiful ceiling windows. The top-notch estheticians excel in making clients comfortable as they perform this intimate service and the resulting Brazilian waxes are worth the pain, and so thorough you'll do cartwheels in your bikini to celebrate.
Massage, manicure/pedicure, hair removal, makeup application.
My waxer can kick your waxer's butt! – Stephanie is amazing!! She's got a pleasant bedside manner, talking the whole time to keep me distracted, always remembers details about my life and does this funny slap thing to keep me from feeling too much of a sting when having my "netherlands" waxed. I always look forward to seeing her and have even referred friends to her. All agree she's wonderful. Ask her about her crazy adventures, I swear you'll get a new story each time.
