Pros: The owner was quick to respond and schedule me and was very flexible when I was running late. She took her time and was very experienced.
Con: For the wax itself, it was just okay. She took a really long time 40 mins and still didn’t get all the hair. She also informed me that the inner thigh area wasn’t included so my lower half looked crazy when she was done. As for the esthetician, I didn’t care for her brand of customer service. I prefer to keep it professional. She was cursing, and asked me if I was (American) Indian because I “looked like I had Indian hair. I politely said no and wanted to let it go but went on to tell me that I probably did have Indian in my blood, and that in fact a lot of us do because “some Comanche was riding around (getting busy)”. This was really offensive to me. That said, I don’t plan to go back again.
Today was my first visit with Denise.. and the start to our new waxing relationship!! Super professional but still made me feel completely comfortable! Being an ETSY myself I’m kinda picky but she covered all bases! Thank you ❤️

Hair Growth: It’s Just a Phase
Waxing works because the hair on our body grows differently than the hair on our heads. Check out Groupon’s guide to hair growth to learn the science behind strands.
Hair varies in thickness and length across our body, from the head’s massive jungle to the knuckles’ tiny brambles. But regardless of where it is, each strand of hair cycles through three phases: anagen, also known as the active growth phase; catagen, or transitional phase; and telogen, or resting phase. During the growth phase, a new hair shaft sprouts from a follicle as its cells rapidly divide and grow upward, forming tightly packed bundles rich with keratin protein. Next, the transition phase kicks in for about two to three weeks, during which growth stops and the outer root sheath shrinks, anchoring the hair to the follicle as it enters the final phase. At that point, the follicle lies dormant until the hair is shed and the cycle begins again.
Not all hair grows at the same rate. On the scalp, hair grows about 6 inches per year, with each strand spending about two to six years in the active phase. Meanwhile, hair on the arms, legs, eyelids, and eyebrows actively grows for a much shorter period—only about 30–45 days—and spends more time in the resting phase, which is why waxing these areas helps curb unwanted hair growth. Humans need removal methods such as waxing because we don’t shed our hair all at once like other mammals; our hair-growth cycles are random and staggered, whereas other animals’ cycles are mostly synchronized.
