It's all about trust...

There is no other option when opting for a brazilian wax - it's the signature service at J. Sisters and I know women that fly to New York from LA or London for this very reason... The $60 price tag may seem a bit steep, but well worth it (nothing is worse than getting it done wrong... )

Brazillian Wax

I have been going to J Sisters for over 4 years now. I have been to other salons to try the Brazillian to try & save some money, but I was so sorry that I did! I will never go anywhere else even if they raise the prices. The quality and customer service is well worth the price. I just found out that my favorite J Sister-"Jane'" has left the salon- I don't know what to do! Does anyone know where she went? HELP!

Over-priced, Over-hyped and Over-rated

  • No, I would not go back!

I had the most LOUD and obnoxious experience wnet I went for a pedicure (supposed to tbe "the best pedi in the city" - HA!!!) at J. Sisters. First of all, the telephone manners of the recpetion people (once you actually got a human) were rude. When I got there the place was packed and the music was BLARING. Not a relaxing atmosphere. While my $45.00 pedicure was very well done, it did not last the 4 weeks they claimed it would. The front desk ladies were rude and dis-interested. The bathrooms was incredilbly tiny, and basically, there is just no way I'd ever go back there.

I was so excited to go to the most recomended place known for their wonderful brazillian wax. this is the Jsisters. I finally went their for my birthday.I did not feel comfertable at all when I was asked to remove my panties! THEY HAD TOUCHED MY BIKINI AREA MORE THAN MY HUSBAND TOUCHED ME IN 10 YEARS OF MARRIAGE! One week later- My hair starts growing and I also had a rash and ingrones. For the Quality job which I had got it was very overpriced.

I went to Jsisters for a brazilian bikini wax. It is not for the shy, and if you are, go anyways (just keep telling yourself these people see hundreds of vaginas a day, mine is no different). The pain was worth it, they did a very complete and thorough job, I am as smooth as a baby's butt.

feeling groovy

Earlier today I made my first trip to the legendary J. Sisters for my first ever brazilian bikini wax. I won't lie, it was a bit painful, especially in the more interior areas, but the pain was fleeting, more a pinch than a punch. The result is great so far (tho' I'm on the look-out for ingrown hairs). I'm feeling groovy. The staff was fairly courteous (although the receptionist called me "sweetie"). My technician Lulu was experienced, friendly and efficient. She was also matter of fact about the procedure which helped me to feel comfortable. I'll most likely be back in 3-4 weeks for a refresher.

This Brazilian is the best

I've been going to J. Sisters for 3 years and this is the best place to get a brazilian bikini wax. I've tried other places that charged less - but you get what you pay for. Lele and Lulu are the only people I go to for waxing.

Some of my friends & family kept telling me how wonderful brazilian wax were, so I decided to get one, I was hesitant and scared to death, but I went, and I cannot lie, it hurts, but it is so so worth it. I absolutely loved it, they're great!, and I will continue to visit them once a month ; ) Thanks J Sisters !

I go to Sylvana exclusively and she is wonderful. But the place itself is absolutely fantastic. Everyone makes you feel at ease. Great service!!!
