Horrible bikini wax!!! You get what you pay for... – DO NOT GET A BIKINI WAX HERE!!!! I had gotten waxed before, and was familiar with the procedure although I had never had a wax done at this place before. Now that I look back on it, I should have waited to get an appointment at the legit, more expensive place.
Ok, so I asked for a brazilian wax, the lady took me in the back, to a ?spa? room?.a room with one of those tables you lay on, and towels on top?.old wax had dripped on the towels that were on the table?.I should have left then, but I was desperate?she did put paper from a roll underneath the table onto the table for me to lay on?So, I am laying there, she does her thing?
(-If you have ever had a real professional wax, you know they never go over the same area twice with wax because your skin is also being ripped of, and if done right, it is only the dead skin being ripped off, and to repeatedly to this would cause injury to you)
She went over the same spots 3, and some even 4 (FOUR) times?and she STILL managed to miss hair??? And when I was getting up to leave she showed me VEGETABLE oil and told me to put that on to keep me from ?sticking??VEGETABLE OIL?!?!?! It was in a different bottle, put the smell was veggie oil to me, and I know this cause I cook with the stuff all the time?.that is just CHEAP.
Well, for $35 plus a $5 tip, I left there feeling like my crotch was on fire, it stung and burned, and when I got home I had ice on it all night, and it was still swollen for 3 days?I even had to go to the doctor?s and get prescription strength steroid creme for the injury I obtained from her. My doctor said I sustained bruising to my bikini area due to the waxing. NEVER had I had this problem before, and never again will I deal with this spa?. Next time, I am going to Sasha?s in Harvard Square?That is a real professional place.
quick and cheap! – If you're looking for a relaxing pedicure and special treatment, this is not the place. However, for a $25.00 mani and pedi, you can't beat it. Never a wait, clean environment, friendly women, and super inexpensive. I go here about twice a month and have always been pleased!
the worst nail salon i've ever been to!!! (and i have been to a lot) – my friend recommended nail & spa, i was really excited before i went. but once i sat down, i realized that the woman who was doing my nails finished my pedicure in 5 minutes! can you believe that? 5 minutes! my nails were cut unevenly, my cuticles werent cleaned enough, and she didnt even clean anything under my toe nails. also in the middle of the 5 minutes, she actually took out her phone and started to chat on the phone! i had to tell her where there was skin sticking out, which was right in front of her eyes.
then she finished my finger nails in ten minutes! all my nails were uneven, and i had to tell her agian that one of the nail was a lot longer than the other ones. then when she was painting my nails, there were missing spots, and she got nail polish on my skin (it was everywehre)
one last thing, when i was paying, i gave her 40 dollars, she gave me a ten and a five back. it was like forcing me to tip her either 10 dollars or 5 dollars. i tipped her 5 dollars. i wouldnt mind tipping her 10 dolloars if she did a wonderful job. but for what she did, she didnt deserve anything! she should have at least given me 5 singles back.
please, to save yourself some money and anger, dont go there! (they wont waste you much time there, because they finish everything in 10-15 mins, which normally should take up to 40 minutes)
