Not a spa. Double charged. Terrible experience. – Not a spa. Ugly strip mall setting with even worse waxing job that left broken, stray hairs and tons of redness. Double charged- never heard of charging for both a brazilian AND bikini wax for just one wax. I only have one bikini area- I would think a brazilian would cover it all. Also, very strange that Wax Spa reviews itself (and gives itself 5 stars!). Its now posting 5 star reviews of itself to counteract every negative review, pretty shady.

Great waxing, but infection prone people take extra care! – This review is for June 19, 2010 after almost 6 months passed from waxing procedure.

When first arriving to the Wax Spa, you'll probably think it does not look like a "spa" at all. Inside, it is still small, with three or four dividing rooms where everything can be heard unless you concentrate more in your thoughts than the voices. You meet the Russian man (whose name has slipped) and Yulia, the one who waxed me for a Brazilian (landing strip), full legs and a buttock strip (after the Brazilian done she asked me about getting it done and I acquiesced). There is even another plump girl whose the other receptionist.

The receptionist girl is very nice and answers your questions as good as the Russian man receptionist. Some complain he is rude; he is just brutally honest and very picky about punctuality.

But now, the waxing part. After entering the room, you lie on some sheets protecting the medical-looking bed. I peeked at the big white pot of wax with some mini cracks on it after leaving me to unclothe. I thought it would be honey colored, but it was more of a teal/blue color. The full legs is done in five minutes and no pain at all. But, I do confess that I waxed regularly (soft wax) and epilate since it is cheaper.

The Brazilian! Although I had read about getting the No-Scream Cream, I didn't buy it, shrugging the future ordeal off. I had also forgotten to take my ibuprofen. Yulia applied the warm wax, let it cool and rip. You won't feel much pain. The lips do not hurt at all. It is actually the front, your mound where it will sting a bit, hoping she distracts your pain by waxing another part. But if not, just concentrate in the dots in the ceilings.

The cons.

Yulia and I had a minor communication barrier since her accent was very heavy, but we got around that. The bad part of that is that Yulia left too quickly the scene and didn't offer some advice for after-care.

You might have strips of wax stuck on your skin after the procedure, making it a bit uncomfortable to walk due to slight sticky feeling.

--- After 1 month.

The leg hair for me grows very slowly, so I was still smooth, just a tiny bit of hair growing. Perfect growth after two months.

But the Brazilian...the growth was horrible.

Before that, I shall expound on my background so infection prone people know what they might be getting into. I have a weak immune system and I always been prone to staph and infections. Epilating my thighs, legs and bikini area has never left me with ingrowns. I exfoliate daily (sugar and olive oil) and clean it with tea tree oil and moisturizing it with emu oil.

However, this first Brazilian just made me break out in ingrowns (no matter my exfoliation care) and some got heavily infected. The hair grew broken, and I still have the Brazilian-veteran scars of this infection. I was not able to walk properly for two weeks. And let me tell you the sight was not pretty: we are talking about sanguine, erupting mini volcanoes.

After such painful weeks and healing, my hair did grow back but broken still.

I do not blame the Wax Spa because I do not have much experience with brazilian waxings. I just wish Yulia could have been there, as well as informing myself better on the effects.

Still, the Wax Spa is an unique place. I no longer reside in the area, and finding the waxing skills and price in another state is impossible. Will I go for a Brazilian here again? Not likely. Shaving or trimming seems preferable and safer.I will go for their other waxing services but not anything to do with my poor Venus. While I may try a Brazilian/Playboy with another esthetician to try my reactions, I will be thinking an awful lot when conjuring the pain.

So if you have sensitive skin issues (dermatitis, weak immune system), definitely consider any effects you might get because as much pain-free it was, that could spell major pain in the after growth.

For those who don't have much problems with the skin, go ahead and enjoy the Wax Spa!

WORST...PLACE...EVER!!!! – DO NOT go to The Wax Spa! “Spa,” yeah right!!! It’s more like a small office in a shopping center divided into two or three mini rooms with a tiny table where you lay down to get waxed and a small metal folding chare where you can place your things while your getting waxed. And the waxing “specialist” is more like a professional torturer! She rushes through the entire waxing process, leaving you with hairs that are broken off, as apposed to pulled out from the root. She also does not apply any pressure to the areas after pulling the strip and does not remove the remaining wax remnants with oil, leaving you super sticky. I have been to many waxing places and the way The Waxing Place’s waxing specialist performs waxing is not the way it should be done! And the way they charge for services is questionable. I went for a full leg and brazilian wax. I asked the cashier girl (before I got waxed) what was included in the full leg wax and she said that it included everything from your ankles to the top of your thighs, but not the bikini area, which is understandable. What is not understandable is that they not only charged me for the full leg, but also for the inner thigh. When I asked the cashier why I was being charged for the inner thigh, she said “because we divide everything into sections and not everyone who gets a full leg need the inner thigh,” even though she told me the full leg included everything from the ankles to the top of the thighs! I was also charged not only for the brazilian, but also for the bikini area. When I asked her about the bikini charge, she said “the brazilian does not include the bikini area!” WHAT? When have you ever heard of a brazilian price not including the bikini area as part of the waxing? THIS PLACE IS SUPER SHADY!! BEWARE!!

First time waxing! Awesome experience. – It's been 2 hrs since i got my first wax done at the wax spa. I must admit that Ina was great. She was honest enough to tell me that for my first wax ever, i should start with bikini even though i wanted the playboy(all hairs gone!). Happens to be that i was very tollerable to the pain and i did the whole 9 yards! It was great. She gave me a free sample of some liquid to avoid in-grown hairs and i was very happy for that.

OVERALL, IT WAS GREAT! THANK YOU FOR MY FIRST WAX EVER! I HAD AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE.

Overall good expirience – the receptionist was a little snarky and made me feel like I was bothering her with my questions but Julia the waxing specialist was great. She was very pleasant and the waxing didn't hurt as much as with other places. the palce is clean and neat their prices are very resonable and they have good discount programs. I'll be back there.

To all our present clients we would like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making us the Best Hair Removal Center and Spa in Miami 3 years in a row. Also, we would like to say thank you to all of our former clients, our neighbors and everyone who envy’s us for your help by leaving us negative reviews and comments during the voting period for the Best of Citysearch Miami Spa and Beauty 2009. You arouse such a curiosity with your negativity that we were getting calls from people who were intrigued to see what is going on. After explaining and emailing them the proof they were more than eager to vote for us.

Once again, thank you.

P.S. From now on we will not respond to negative reviews (some of you get upset when we call you “Dear” or say “Sincerely” and call it rude), but instead we will post this on top of each negative review. In our humble opinion being voted the Best of Citysearch 3 years in a row by the people of Miami speaks for itself...

Go elsewhere if you want to be treated well. – If the word "SPA" is in your business' name customers may expect a SPA-like experience! It's nothing close. Rude front desk staff. A lot of first-time customers but very few repeat. Tried to cancel once cuz of an emergency and got charged!! Too bad the owner is so conceited. Don't forget the way potential customers are treated! If you park in his illegally marked space he threatens to illegally tow you! Of course, he never does this to any of the men visiting the strip mall. Just the ladies. What customer service!

Happy new customer – Just got back and thought this place was great. Julia was so friendly and patient, no one was pushy. I checked prices online and couldn't believe it was so inexpensive. I purposely didn't ask the price when i got there b/c i wanted to see what they would charge at the end... EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED. I'm definitely a new steady customer and will refer everyone! Thanks
