A $26 Lip Wax?

By nywriter23 on 8/22/2007

  • No, I would not go back!

I stopped in at J Sisters bc I was next door at Laser Cosmetica getting my bikini lasered (recommend it!). The hair above my lip was looking a little dark, so I walked in and asked for a wax, which I've been doing for, oh, 16 years. When I got done (about 4 minutes later) the woman filled out my form and...$25 (over $26 w/ tax...). WHAT??? For four minutes? I said to her and the front desk - What?? It's usually like $8 or $10 or MAYBE $15. And there were NO PRICES POSTED (floor 4). Pissed, I paid (i had to f-ing charge it!), but I think will call a manager today bc that is just ridiculous.

Unbelievably ungracious ... are they kidding?

  • No, I would not go back!

Could be a case of we-are-so-sought-after-by-A-listers-that-we-get-to-act-snotty, but more than that, this operation lacks class. No overall ethic of courteous service, and few people working there have a clue how to provide it. On each floor, I snag someone to tell them I have an appointment and get waved toward a chair to wait. Waxer does a neat job but NOT what I asked for. Manicurist and pedicurist are also competent, but keep up nonstop conversation across me in Portuguese, loudly, to be heard over blaring music. When I ask for coffee, they get it but seem surprised. They finish quickly and walk away. Twenty minutes later, I have to ask am I done? should I take the tissue from my toes? Silly me for wanting closure! When charges on bill are higher than listed on website, condescending desk clerk is definitely not interested, much less responsible. Yes, the services are TWICE as good as the corner nail parlor (where they greet me and offer me tea without being asked), but J Sisters costs FIVE times as much, and for that, I expect pampering.

Great wax!

Finally, a place that's clean, efficient and thorough. Theresa, who is not Brazilian, did a fabulous job and I was in and out of there in 15 minutes! It was virtually painless and totally professional. I couldn't recommend it enough.

GREAT brazilian wax!! i think that is the only thing i would pay for there though. Atmosphere from staff is NOT friendly.. exactly like they're doing you a favor. and other prices such as hair services just seem way overly expensive.

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.
