Never Again!

I have to say I have never had a worse experience getting waxed. As a regular waxer, I have no idea how a "professional" can get it so wrong. Apart from it being the most painful wax I have ever had, and it was the quickest (to me shows that no care was taken). The hair was not waxed, but broken and I had re-growth within the week. My skin also came off in strips. With no exaggeration my legs (and bikini area) were RED and RAW. The so called professional gave me mis-information about up keep. I would not recommend this particular place to my worst enemy. Thank you EVE for forcing me to keep my legs covered for an entire month of July in the steaming hot NYC summer.... and also for the injuries. I do have to give credit to the extremely polite and friendly receptionists, the only pleasurable aspect of my visit.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
