Best Brazilian in Boulder Regardless of Price. – I have been getting Brazilians for years, and this is HANDS DOWN the best place for it. I only make appointments that fit my schedule and don't worry about who is working it because everyone is good. Everything is always very clean, and they are always conscientious about allergies, etc.
If you're a first-timer try to avoid Kyla until you've had a few. She can make things a little more painful than necessary. (I think she just gets nervous, because she is still really good).
The studio is always very warm so dress light to avoid embarrassing sweating! ;)
My favorite part is being able to make appointments online! :) Yay!
If you go anywhere else in boulder I promise you will be disappointed. (I sure was, not to mention poorer, burned, and scarred!!!)
Awesome experience for waxing. – This was my second time experiencing being waxed. The first time I had my eyebrows, ears, and nose done. It went so well I went back for nose, ears, and added my back.
The place was easy to find. The reception was friendly, professional, making me feel comfortable.
I had arrived early and had a wait of a couple of minutes. The office itself is very well designed and enjoyable, clean and neat without feeling Dr. office sterile.
Alex did my waxing and within minutes I was completely at ease. She was thorough in letting me know what to expect next.
I've got a very hairy back and was quite concerned about how much it would hurt. Alex had me laughing and totally relaxed which made for a very quick pleasant experience.
I'd recommend her and the office to any and all of my friends with no reservations, it was an excellent experience!
Best Brazillian Ever – I live in LA where getting a brazilian wax is as common as getting a pedicure. I saw this place while I was in town visiting my family and since I was over due for a touch up decided to give it a try. First of all, you can't beat the price: brazillians go for $80 plus in LA so $50 is such a steal. Second, I am use to standard liquid wax with muslin strips but once I experienced the blue hard wax that Summer used on me I am never going back to liquid again. The hard wax hurt less because it only stuck to my hair and not my skin and I had way less ingrown hairs post wax because of it. And third, the entire staff was so sweet and professional which is so appreciated when you are having the hair ripped off of a very sensitive area. Love this place, will go back whenever I'm in town. Only wish there was one in LA.
Exceptional service... – I went to Wax in the City's Boulder location and was so pleased with everything. I liked the idea of the -wax only- store so I tried it out. I had a brazilian service with Whitney Wagner and she was comforting, professional and efficient. During the service, Whitney kept conversation going so I never once felt awkwardness because it was my first time meeting her. Because waxing is something that I need on a regular basis, I am glad I have found a place and person I can count on. I have to say also, that the pricing at Wax in the City is BEYOND resonable. Because I have experienced many businesses that offer the brazilian service, I know that you will not find waxing for this quality and atmosphere at these prices. I would gladly pay more for Whitney's work. (Thanks WITC!)
Great brazilian wax and customer service – I've had multiple brazilian waxes all over Denver. I moved to Boulder in May and was very concerned about finding someone new, because I have had some messy, painful, BAD experiences with waxing in the past. I made appointment with Mel Klein online, and after re-affirming that she is, in fact, a female, I went to my appointment with quite a bit of apprehension based on past experiences.
Mel was very sweet and gave me the best wax I have ever had. She was extremely thorough, very personable, and the wax was the most painless I have ever experienced. The entire process was professional, and I was also suprised to find out that they have a no-tipping policy, which means that I can afford more waxes!
I would highly recommend Wax in the City, and Mel Klein in particular!
Nice and comfortable experience – I have gone there for two brazilian waxes and I had great experiences each time. Noreen was such a sweetheart and made me very comfortable since I was such a newbie to waxing in general. The front desk staff was kind and there's free sodas in the waiting lounge. Overall a great place!
No consistency...worst wax ever – I agree with Velzy! I have tried to stay with Wax in the City but I have been hurt way to bad, to many times!!!
I have been going to Wax in the City for a while now and I usually go to the first available person. I have only seen one girl that I like. When I have had to go to the other girls (I think one of them was an owner), they were the worst waxes ever. Most of the girls I have been to do not seem to be trained as well as the girl I like to go to.
I really felt like waxers were really stuck-up, like they really didn't care about how I was doing. I would not recommend Wax in the City to anyone. If you're into pain and not getting taken care of, Wax in the City is the place to go! One other thing, the people at the front desk are rude and do not know what they are doing and they do not seem to care if you're in a hurry or if you are even standing there at all!!!!!
This review is somewhat difficult to address. Bottom line?we question the validity of this review as it coincidently occurred within 72 hours of firing a disgruntled employee. We are now in the position of trying to figure out if this is legitimate feedback or an x-employee attacking our reputation. If legitimate, I highly encourage the individual who wrote this to contact us so we can talk further. The issues outlined in this review are polar opposite of our company philosophies. We seek constructive feedback and very much care about our clients and their experiences with our company. I can agree though, that we love shopping at Marshalls too!
Great location, awful experience – After reviewing all the salons in Boulder, Wax In The City seemed like a good choice. Scheduling was simple and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful.
I got a Level 1 modified Brazilian and Lower Leg wax from Noreen. She was very nice and I felt comfortable.
My Brazilian was the worst I've ever gotten. I thought I was being critical, so I went home and asked my bfriend his opinion (without telling him mine). He said there was still lots of hair. I felt so embarrassed calling to ask if I could come back for a "clean up". When I returned, Noreen totally agreed that she has missed quite a bit. Not a comfortable situation!!
As for my Lower Leg waxing, well now I have a scar/discoloration down my left shin. I don't know if the waxing tore off my skin or what, but it's been over a month and the scar/discoloration is still there.
I didn't call them about the leg. I don't want to go back there. The leg waxing was on par with the Brazilian in that lots of hair was missed. The salon wasn't busy, so I don't think she was rushed. Wax In The City will not be getting my business any more!!
Thank you for your feedback. We take pride in having a learning environment and want to address your concerns; however, we have spoken to Noreen and researched this, but cannot find record of a re-due for a Brazilian wax with Noreen during April/May timeframe. We have a formal system in place to obtain details of a complaint, follow up with appropriate staff, and incorporate necessary performance improvement processes into our training programs. Unfortunately without date of service and more details regarding this situation we are unable to address further. Please contact me (Robin) if you are willing to initiate this process. Although we can?t reverse your experience with us, we want to make it right.
Great Wax – As a male going in for my first wax, I was a bit hesitant but Alex and her staff immediately put me at ease. Alex explained exactly what would happen, the type of wax to be used and what the experience would be like. During the procedure, Alex explained that she sees many other guys for waxing services so clearly I wasn't the first guy on her table. Once the procedure was over, I felt very little discomfort and was pleased overall with how it went. The Boulder office is very well kept. Alex and her staff are first-rate waxing pros and I would recommend them to any other guy (or girl for that matter) for waxing services.
Finally found a good wax in Boulder! – I have now been to wax In the City several times and have never found a better Brazilian or eyebrow waxing. Whitney gets the job done fast but she is also very thorough. The pricing is also affordable compared to other places I have been. I would reccomend wax in the city to anyone!
