Horrific customer service. I have been a customer for 8 years and have spent $200-$500 each month on services. I had an appointment scheduled for Monday, late morning, for a bikini wax. My cycle started at 8:30 a.m. that morning. I telephoned and left a message immediately. I did not want to gross the esthetician out. I did not receive a call back until after my appointment had been scheduled and was charged for a no show. It's sad they needed the no show fee more than the $200-$500 per month I spent for the last eight years. I will NEVER go back!
EXCELLENT spa!! – Such a FANTASTIC place--it gave me just the recharge I needed and everything is absolutely pleasant and amazing. There's always so many different things you can have done here. It's definitely a place to be pampered at.
Best Facial & Brazilian Wax~ – There's so many choices in where to go for a wax or facial. But when I came across Petite Spa four years ago I was hooked and didn't dare try somewhere else, because I feel I have found the best.
What I like is when you walk in the spa, it always smells divine and is so charming. The receptionist are friendly and walk you to their petite waiting area. While you wait they offer you delis tea warm or chilled.
What's so important to me is the quality of work. I'm always so happy with my brows, brazilian, and my skin is always improved after at facial at Petite. I would highly recommend Lisa, Juliana, and Liz for facials, brows and Sara & Kacie for brazilians.
Relaxing, Fun and Efficient Staff, Quality Treatments and Great Service!
Super! – This is a cute little spa that provides great service. When it comes to facials, Lisa is the best!
All employees are friendly and low-key - no attitude like other places.
The only con is a serious lack of parking nearby, but that's Santa Monica in general.
Fast & Easy Wax – If you have to wax, this is the place in Santa Monica. Same day usually gets you in. No waiting once you're there. Wax jobs have been very good and all the aestheticians are great - gentle, friendly and make you feel comfortable.
Liz Canalis is the best whoo-haa waxing, also awesome facial – I finally found the best in LA -- she's fast, made it very painless, and uses amazing smelling oil. She's careful, caring and fun to talk to.
I tried one facial so far, I glowed, felt refreshed, chilled out.
Love. Love. Love.
Wonderful Facial with Great Results! – I have had lots of facials and lash tints in the past, but this was my first at Petite Spa. Juliana was my spectacular Esthetician. It was a great experience all around...easy to schedule, on-time service, and easy/free street parking right around the corner. My skin tends to be very sensitive and has at times looked worse after a facial than before. But this was not the case with Juliana. She listened carefully to my past experiences and was very sensitive to everything I told her. She used only very gentle products that she felt suited my skin type. The facial itself was very relaxing and soothing. I felt well pampered throughout. But the best part is that my skin looked so much better after the facial. It was glowing and smooth. It has now been a week since the facial and the results and exactly the same as they were right after. Juliana also did a lash tint. Although I love having my lashes tinted, it's not always a fun experience because often the dye leaks into my eyes and stings. Amazingly, even though she warned me it might happen, it didn't! Maybe it was first timers luck, but maybe it was Juliana's skilled hands :) I will definitely be back for both a Facial and Lash Tint with Juliana at Petite Spa! Oh, and I have been looking for a daily SPF face cream for years that isn't greasy and have never been able to find it. Juliana recommended one they sell there by Epicuren and it is great. Totally matte, all safe ingredients, and hasn't caused any problems with my skin. Yay!
BEST BRAZILIAN BIKINI WAX – From the moment I phoned in for my appointment, the staff of Petite Spa were friendly, accomodating and professional. I received exceptional phone service from K.C who was both sensitive to the subject and to my questions, and extremely kind and informative. I was given a prompt appointment, and reassured that my esthetician would consult with me and answer all my questions before the waxing.
Bikini waxing, particualarly Brazilian waxing is both painful and embarassing, but my aesthetician, Apolonia was professional, extremely gentle, and truly focused on making me feel comfortable. She was quick and so thorough, and later, I didn't experience even half the level of discomfort I generally feel after a brazilian waxing. I will definitely return for her services. I also had my brows cleaned up by Apolonia and she is very slow, precise and detail oriented. (She tweezed them under a magnification mirror and made unbelievable shape changes by plucking one hair) What an artist! I have gone to the same spa for waxing for the past 10 years and I will DEFINETLY be switching to Petite Spa. I can't wait to experience one of the wonderful facials for which they receive so many fabulous reviews.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS WONDERFUL SPA!!!
Small treasure in Santa Monica! – What makes this place so special is the environment. As soon as you walk in you are surrounded by soothing lavender painted walls and the harmonizing scent of aroma therapy. The staff is ever so friendly, but not fake. I come here on my lunch break and it feels like a mini retreat. I recommend the organic facial with Lisa, and an eyebrow shaping!
best facial EVER!!! – i visited the petite spa for the first time and i absolutely LOVED it! i have very complicated skin - acne, rosacea and dryness. juliana made my skin look amazing! and the results lasted weeks! i'm now totally hooked and will be visiting her every month to maintain the healthy glow my skin now has. she knows so much about what products to use and what treatments are best for my skin. i HIGHLY recommend petite spa and juliana for facials!!!
