I love Zhila, I have been going to her for about 3 years now. I first tried regular waxing at Helena's it was so painful. I was so scared to ever try waxing again. I did some research on waxing in houston and different kinds of waxing. After much research I discovered sugaring and then I found Zhila, from the first time I went I have been hooked. It is a breeze on the level of pain compared to regular waxing. Zhila moves so fast you barely realize your were just waxed. The customer service is awesome I have really grown to like Zhila as a person she is the sweetest most kind hearted person you will ever meet. I refuse to go any where else for my waxes.
I have been going to Zhila for 2 years now. She is absolutely the best and painless. I would never go anywhere else for brazilian or eyebrow shaping.
Adore. Zhila. Been seeing her for 6 years. The BEST Houston has to offer. You would be crazy to go somewhere else. She is a hoot and fabulous. xo
Best. Investment. Ever! – Zhila is amazing! I go to her for all of my sugaring needs! She is truly fabulous. I'm in and out of there in 5 minutes tops! And with each passing visit, I have less hair growing back!!!!!!!!!
Zhila told me that she makes her own sugar, which is what makes her so much better than going somewhere else to get waxed (womp womp). Sugaring is the way to go, and Zhila is the one to see! She'll have you off the table in 3 minutes flat. GO SEE HER! She's fab!
Houston's Sweetest Brazillian! – Sweet Sensation is truly the most dependable and affordable place to get eyebrow shaping and my need, brazillians.
I hardly trust anyone with grooming my body let alone sugaring hairs,I had tried waxing before and the whole experience frightened me and made me truly fearful of wax. My dear friend reccomended me to zhila and I fell in love with sugaring!
Zhila is extremly gentle and fast for those on the go, I can't figure out why there's two reviews contradicting obvious falsehood and I would reccomend zhila to all my friends (already have!)
The establishment is quaint and extremley neat, the atmoshphere is calming and very elegant. You don't have to wait long, zhila is very fast at what she does and makes the time go by faster with her fun personality and desired professionalism in a spa.The location is great and surrounded by cute little boutiques to look around after you've finished.
I've been very satisfied and even look forward to brazillians and hope that zhila becomes even more established and aquires more appreciative clients such as myself.
Best and most affordable eyebrow shaping – I have been searching for someone who can shape my eyebrows according to my face for years and I have finally found her. I have had such horrible experiences that have left my eyebrows sparse and bald in some places. Zhila recommended a treatment to regrow my hair which no one else has ever done. I went to another more expensive place in the heights a few weeks earlier thinking you get what you pay for right? Wrong.
She did an O.K. job but not as good as Zhila and she sold me some product that she claimed would make my eyebrows grow (which it didn't) and when I showed it to Zhila she said it was just eyebrow mascara to keep them in place. How awful is that! Well needless to say I will continue going to Zhila to restore my eyebrows back to their natural shape.
Best place in Houston for hair removal – Zhila has always been very professional, caring and personable in her work. I have been going to Zhila for many years, and I have never had or seen a problem. I know scheduling is sometimes difficult due to her work load, but she is always able to shuffle me in. I think there are just a couple of disgruntled clients and/or competitors writing disrespectful comments. Zhila is the best, hands down.
Best in Houston – Zhila is the best. I don't know where the negative reviews are coming from, because I've been going to her for over a year and she has never had a bad attitude and she always returns my calls. She is friendly and fun, and will always fit in an appointment for you (which is fabulous). The results are always great, and she is professional, fast and her experience shows. The location is nice; it's conveniently located, nicely decorated, and very clean. It's a wonderful place, and really great service.
Horribl attitude – When I called the salon Zhila seemed like a very nice and pleasant women. That is not the case. When she found out I was not married she made me feel like what I was doing was sinister. Her work was under satisfactory, I told her it was to hot but she seems to think that she knows it all so she burned my skin. I personally recommend you go to Helena's Brazilian wax. This women has a very negative personality and I will never be going back.
Will not return – I've been getting Brazilians from Zhila for 6 months to a year. I was interested in sugaring since it's better for your skin and was pleased to find out about Sweet Sensation.
Things to Note
1) The location is small so you can hear conversations between Zhila and other customers.
2) She may ask you to open the door for customers as the door stays locked.
3) She schedules about three people per 15-30 minute time slot.
All of this is fine and not a big deal.
The negatives however are impossible to ignore. Many times I have to call more than once to make an appointment as no one returns my call. One time I didn't hear from anyone for a week. Finally someone called and said Zhila had been out for two weeks and to call tomorrow. Why couldn't she call me? Isn't she the one earning my business?
Also, there have been times when the wax was too hot for me. Last time in particular I mentioned this to her. Instead of taking this into account, she proceeded on and told me I was too sensitive. I have burns as a result. To top it off, not all the hair is gone.
I want to like Zhila and Sweet Sensation, but, after last time, I will not return. Sugaring is a great method of hair removal, but the lack of customer service will make me take my business elsewhere.
