I've had Brazilian waxes from so many different salons and even though I've had really good ones, there’s just something about my experience that makes me want to try something different.
Sometimes the aesthetician talks too much, sometimes the studio is dirty, sometimes they suck and the waxing process hurts much more than usual, sometimes they're always booked and you can never get an appointment. Who knows, I've gone through every single one of these scenarios. At the other Spa I went to, I had a different aesthetician every time I went because they quit/were fired/ who knows.
I tried Aroma because of all the reviews online and all those 5 stars for waxing and facials!?!??!
It had to be good. I booked online and they literally confirm my appointment 10 minutes later. I was shocked, because they were so on top of their stuff.
I walked in, nervous as hell because of a traumatic experience at a spa that shouldn't be named, and I was immediately greeted and was offered tea, water..etc.
Mary is the nicest aesthetician in the world and it just feels like she could be your best friend.
She does my eyebrows, the upper lips, and then she does the underarms. Usually they hurt. Some people wax it all in one go and some do it in little strips because the growth pattern is abnormal... either way, it hurts a bunch because all of it is getting out at once or its pain for 5 minutes.
I'm telling you.. there's technique involved at this salon that's a secret. How does someone put a THIN layer of wax on my armpits, waxes EVERYTHING in one strip, gets all of it out (aside from the stubborn strays), and it not hurt that much?
I don't have a high pain tolerance. I can't get shots from the doctor and stubbing my toe hurts like a mother... but I handled this entire visit just fine.
Oh, and the Brazilian.
Lets just say that I've gone to spas that put anesthetic (you know, the cream that NUMBS the area?) on my lady parts and it hurt less than those visits. I'm telling you, it’s the magic wax and the breathing thing she made me do. The MOST PAINFUL PART OF THE WAX didn't even hurt. It literally felt like someone just peeled off a band-aid.
The best parts?
1. I got 4 areas waxed and I was out in 25 minutes. At other places, they don't even do a thorough job and it takes 30 minutes just for the Brazilian wax.
2. I told her I was headed to the gym right after and she stressed that it wasn't a good idea because I would be sweating and I could get bacteria in my pores and start breaking out. Who does that? Every time I've mentioned working out after a wax to my aesthetician (i don't know why I always head out to get my fitness on after a wax now that I think about it....) they never said anything. Obviously, she's a good listener and she knows the aftercare of waxing.
Aroma has won my heart and because I know they're so popular, I already scheduled my next appointment before walking out of the salon. Yep. They're that amazing.
I absolutely LOVE Mary. Damn she rocks!
I set up my appointment online through the Craiglist or kijiji. When I showed up for my appointment I was welcomed and taken back for my brazilian wax.
I've been here 3 times so far, Mary performed my first brazilian and full leg wax. She talked to me the entire way through, and it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was gonna be. Trust me, if you're nervous, there's no need to be, Mary has a mouth on her and will keep you distracted and laughing through it all.
The second time I went here, I got waxed by Alaa (am I spelling that right?). She was thorough as shit! She made sure she got every little hair by tweezing after waxing - it was well appreciated. Luckily I knew what to expect (as far as pain) because she wasn't very talkative. I don't want to be the one to hold the conversation, as all I'm thinking about is how my little hairs are crying as they're being ripped out!
The third time I went, I was waxed by Mary again, and it was much like catching up with an old friend.
I absolutely love this place. All I can say is, make your appointments EARLY, cause they book fast (you should be making appointments after you're done with one and paying for it).
The guy at the front desk is so nice you want to give him a cupcake and a hug for being so cute, and my experience there was stellar. Can't wait to go back!
