i really like this place! ive been to a couple different estheticians here and they were both great! We chatted the entire time, and i've actually had fun during my appointments :) the brazilians i've gotten honestly haven't hurt that bad, these girls are professional, very skilled and quick!
NEVER AGAIN! I read amazing reviews for waxing the city and it was my first time getting an eyebrow wax from this place... So I was excited when one was five minutes away from me! I went to the bellemar one. The customer service at the front desk was awesome, but everything passed that was HORRIBLE!
I told her it was my first time there and tried talking to them, but it was like talking to a wall. I get it if some people don't like to talk while their working but this woman was like frankenstein and really awkward. Not only that, but the wax she did on my eyebrows was absolutely AWFUL! After she was done it looked like I didn't have any eyebrows left! I really wish I had taken a picture to prove how completely bad the job was. Both of my eyebrows weren't even the same shape anymore! And there was a HUGE gap between my eyebrows. I know that eyebrows should conform to the 'T' of your face, but holy cow! It was like my eyebrows started in the middle of my eyes!
I had to pencil in the front part of my eyebrows for a month at least, and haven't plucked them in months just so they'd grow back to what they used to be before!
I can't believe there are so many good reviews for this place on here! Or that I paid to have someone butcher my brows. Did I just catch them on a bad day or something???
Not all brazillans are created equal. . . – I began getting brazillans back in September and am so glad I went to Waxing the City first. I have the service about every 4-6 weeks without fail. I have been to all 3 Denver locations and the staff has always been fabulous. I have had the service from all levels of technicians and have always had a great experience. I know that I can scehdule at any location with any technician and have a good experience.
Now those of you who have had brazillians know that they are not the most comfortable thing ever but I have learned to tollerate them. I like that the waxing professionals take their time and help you through the most painful parts.
I guess I never realized how good they were until I went to aother salon where Mary proceeded to complete my brazillian in 15 minutes and pulled skin with the hair in a couple of instances. It was so painful.
I love the feeling after a brazillan and am so glad I chose Waxing the City because if the pain I felt yesterday had been felt the first time, I never would have gone back.
I will be scheduling my next appointment at Waxing the City and will use them for all of my waxing needs.
Best Brazilian Ever – Wow. Just had a brazilian with Liv at the Belmar location, she is amazing.First and foremost, the studio is spotless and their technique is sterile. The environment is very clean and they will NEVER double dip......you know what I mean. I have been a dedicated waxing the city client since they opened, I have always seen Jessie at the Lodo location. She is so talented and professional I have hesitated ever seeing anyone else. With a hectic schedule, I am only able to go to the lakewood location. I am soooo glad that I took the plunge and trusted Liv. She is fabulous. I love Jessie and if you are going to lodo she is definitely your girl, but if you are going to Lakewood Liv is who you want to see. Quick and as painless as a brazilian can be ;) . I have had great brazilians and I have had terrible ones. These girls are amazing! Thanks you guys for providing such excellent service and hiring such a competent staff. I will always highly recommend!
Good customer service – I had a problem with my appointment. The manager called me immediately to fix the problem, and was very professional. I would recommend Urban Wax.
DTC Wax in the City – I was in need of an eyebrow wax....bad! I was looking for a new place and had seen a coupon for Wax in the CIty. Unfortunately, I don't live downtown anymore. Fortunately, there is a Wax in the CIty in DTC. My experience was great, from the phone call for an appointment to the finished product. Laura did my brows and was so thorough. The wax they use doesn't hurt nearly as much as traditional wax. They have complimentary soda if you have to wait, but I arrived 20 minutes early and only waited 5! It was great and even though its a little further from Highlands Ranch than I"d like, I will definitely go back!
AMAZING Experience, and I'm a first timer – This was my first time waxing and everyone there was great. When I first walked in it smelled like a dr office. Little did I know how reassuring that was going to be! The staff was super friendly and they were able to accommodate me even though I was a bit late. I highly recommend the level 3 tech named Courtney (Evertte I think is her last name). Not only was she swift and quick at her job but she kept me chatting the entire time.
I will def go back and will see Courtney again, and everyone waxing is not NEARLY as bad as you would ever think it is :-D
excellent all round service – Beautiful wax. Minimal discomfort. Prompt, curteous service.. Always felt welcome and comfortable. I learned of Waxing in the City from reading Best of whatever in the 5280 magazine. I'm a particularly happy client, because I was very reluctant to get a bikini wax after a horrible, painful, and infectious experience I had 5 years ago in a different state (Brazilian, took weeks to heal). But the 5280 reviews convinced me to give waxing another try, especially because I get unsightly razor burn from shaving the bikini area. Today I decided to go for the Brazlian (had been doing modified Brazilian). I had been sure that it would hurt like the dickens, and it didn't! I am so pleasantly surprised. Highly recommended, and anyone who writes otherwise is being nasty. Tsk, tsk. I believe in karma. I go to Stacey at the DTC location.
Great Location, Poor customer service – I went into Waxing the City strictly because I live so close and because it had pretty good reviews. A couple of friends of mine had told me that I should not go there because they had bad experiences multiple times but everyone always has a different experience right? I cant stand people who go on these reviews things and rip the company a new one for petty problems that were more than likely their own fault. Regardless, I guess the whole point of these things are to share your experience for future customers.So, with that being said here was mine. I came 15 minutes early for my appointment and waited there for about 40 minutes (which is no problem, because as I said I did come in early and I had the day off and to be quite honest, had nothing else better to do) then when it was my turn the lady I had been scheduled with barely introduced herself because she was so rushed and the entire time I was in the room she didn't speak a word to me, it made me feel very uncomfortable. Especially because this was my very first time. I understand some people like to work in silence so for this I cant complain but regardless it still made me feel uncomfortable. The end result of the wax looked just about as terrible as it felt. When I went to check out the receptionist was really short with me and almost a bit rude. I understand people have stressful days I just wish I didn't have to suffer for it (so to speak). I'm sure people have great experiences there all the time but unfortunately for me, mine just wasn't. I've recently found a new place and am so happy with it, so I guess thats all that really matters right? Best of luck to Waxing the City in the future
Absolutely the Best All Around in Waxing – Waxing the City is absolutely the best place to go for waxing in the Denver area. I tried Waxing the City at the recommendation of a friend and was very happy with the entire experience and the results. I will admit I did try other salons closer to home strictly for convenience, but was never as satisfied as I was with Waxing the City. From now on I will make the 20 min drive to get the best service and the best price. I have been to several different cerologists at Waxing the City and have been happy with all of them! You can't go wrong.
