best brazilian bikini waxing in richmond – What a great place! That was the best, fastest, least painless brazilian bikini wax I've ever had in Richmond. I tried two other places, one place used the hard wax and had a decent technique but it was in a sketchy area of town and too far for me to drive. I need convenience and professional. The other salon had a weird older lady who made me feel uncomfotable. La Bella Dona was the third place on my list of places to try but it should have been my first. I can only think of it like comparing those other places like, "the hair cuttery" to Mango Salon. It was a totally different level of professionalism. No tacky slogans or pushy people. just friendly girls, a painless wax, a discount because I'm a college student - WHO KNEW!- and a great place. I love La Bella Dona and I send all my sorority sisters there now. It's like a DC brazilian bikini wax - you can tell they've been doing them for years!
Great Service! Lovely Staff! Fantastic Prices! – I've been going to La Bella Dona for over two years and am a faithful customer. I've been to almost every spa in Richmond and once I found La Bella Dona I have been a faithful customer.
My husband and I recently had their couples massage for our one year anniversary and it was to die for. It was our first time getting one together. It was romantic and relaxing.
The also have great specials and deals on their website.
Nice and not commercial – A few years ago I was in a car accident and did some damage to my back and following after that my insurance used to cover some of my massages for medical reasons. My benefits ran out on that but I'm addicted to massage still so I have to pay out of pocket. I've gone to the big massage houses and paid a great price for an okay massage. And i've paid a ton of money at "spas" for a pretty terrible massage. I went here on a recomendation from a friend's wife and i had the best massage of my life. The massage room itself is nice, isolated, quite and it even has a cute little fireplace in it. The massage therapist i had used to be a nurse before she went into massage and she did a real bang up job. I'll definitely go back. The price point seems low for what was an exceptional massage in a really classy establishment, really the best of both worlds.
Good times – I used to see Denise for my brazilians. She was d@mn good. And funny. I loved her. After she had her baby I could never get an appointment to see her and I just didn't feel comfortable seeing any body else. When she returned from maternity leave not only could I not get an appointment with her when I did schedule one, they'd call me and tell me she was sick. It happened 3 times. Unacceptable. I talked to the owner and she gave me a credit for my next wax and I really appreciate her trying to make the situation right. Next thing I heard Denise left for maternity leave, and then I heard she was fired. So at this point I couldn't really wait any longer. I let them make me an appointment with who ever was available, and I gotta say. I was happy. Esther was my waxer and she did great. Maybe she had a little different style then Denise but it was same thing, in and out real quick. Everyone just seems so happy there whenever I go. Which is weird to me, everybody's getting waxed, and it all hurts. But overall it was pleasant. Esther's my new girl and I feel like I've been seeing her all my life. I don't know if it's the place or the girls or the crazy weird happy trip everyone's taking there but I missed it. And I'm glad they have someone as stellar as Esther on board and I'm not so afraid to try somebody else now.
Trickery and Deceit!!!! – For those of you that were Denise's customers, do not believe the lies they are telling...Denise is NOT on extended maternity leave, she was FIRED! The owners of this business are hoping that you are not smart enough to realize that a person would not go on maternity leave three months AFTER she came back from maternity leave. They are being dishonest in an effort to keep clients there because they know that some people will leave once they find out the truth. I started at La Bella Dona in 2005 and when I came in for my appointment, they did not tell me Denise wasn't there, they had just resceduled me with someone else and when I inquired, they told me Denise was on extended maternity leave. Luckily, I was able to contact her and find out the truth. I will never go back to La Bella Dona again and I am encouraging everyone I know not to go there either unless you want to deal with shady business practices.
Great facials – I have horrible skin and always have tons of issues (acne, scars, etc- you name it, I have it! :)). I met Brooke when she worked at a different spa and followed her to this spa. She truly is an artist at what she does: my skin always looks 100% better when I have a facial with her. I went to her before all major events in my life for the last 5 years or so, and never left dissapointed. For anyone who has problem skin, I highly recommend a facial with Brooke: she really does have a magic touch! :)
Brazilian Wax – Went there on 19 Jul 08. They did not really acknowledge me like the other customers (white customers). Got a Bikini wax, they left wax in my hair area, one sides was waxed further in then the other side. They didn't even use a cream after waxing! To top it off they charged me $50.00 just to wax my bikini line! The SERVICE SUCKED & THE PRICE WAS TO HIGH FOR THE SERVICE! Claudia's is wayyyyyyyy better! I would never recommend them!
rude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!will never go there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!not willing to help when they make a mistake
Excellent – I go here for my brazilian bikini waxes. The inside of the spa is quiet and relaxing. The service is superb. They are known for their brazilian waxes so I highly recommend someone who is looking for this service to go here. They are knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable.
The 'New' best spa around – I received a gift card to be used at any spa and I don't remember how I stumbled upon this one. But I am glad I did. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for great service, and you want to feel special.... if only for a couple of hours ...try this place. bring your girlfiends. It is a small intimate place that really makes you feel welcome and the service is bar non as good as Red Door without the hoity-toity treatment.
