Ever since I can remember I’ve wanted to try waxing. And by waxing I mean something beyond my eyebrows. Every time I go into any salon I ask them a million questions about their waxing services… mostly about the pain involved. If you ask my parents, my pain threshold is below average and I think that’s why I’m so timid to try out things that appear to be painful. But now I think… you’ve done childbirth (twice), which takes much longer than waxing, so if I can handle that, I can certainly handle a wax. What better place to get my first wax than at a professional salon that specializes in waxing and has an exclusive, stripless Comfort Wax™, made from natural beeswax, which gently removes the hair for a virtually painless experience?! European Wax Center®, I am in you. Reservation – confirmed.

European Wax Center Review

The next step after deciding that I was going for it was figuring out what to get waxed. Because European Wax Center® offers a complimentary wax for first-time guests (FOR HER: brow, underarm or bikini line wax. FOR HIM: ear, nose or brow wax). I chose two to be done on that day – bikini line and also full leg. Might as well go for it!

When I walked in, I was greeted by the friendliest person in the universe (I know this because we were able to chat a bit before my reservation time – before you ask, she had no idea I was there with my blogger hat on). I was feeling a bit apprehensive but the fact that I could sit there and talk with someone like we were just hanging out over coffee relaxed me and prepared me for the next step, which was meeting with Quaila, who would be performing my services.

Quaila led me back to a beautifully decorated hallway and into a private suite where she explained the process to me. Because she is a licensed esthetician and so knowledgeable, I relaxed even more. The 4 Steps to Gorgeous™ process is simple:

  1. Cleanse. The pre-wax cleanser removes any lotion, oil or makeup from the skin.
  2. Protect. A pre-wax oil ensures the wax adheres to hairs and not skin.
  3. Wax. The exclusive, stripless Comfort Wax™ is used to remove the hairs.
  4. Rejuvenate. Finally the skin is pampered with Ingrown Hair Serum (for body) or Calming Cream (for face).

As she went through each step, Quaila went more in depth about what she was doing, why she was doing it and how it would help future hair regrowth. For example, hair grows at different rates so each time you wax the treatment is getting more hair until eventually the hair will all regrow at the same rate.

Obviously, you feel being waxed. That’s expected. What I didn’t expect was that it wasn’t bad at all. Quaila laughed when I said “That was like nothing!” – I imagine she hears that all day from guests.

European Wax Center

European Wax Center® has been around for a decade and believes that every one deserves to have beautiful, gorgeous skin. They offer a superior product line and adhere to their simple 4-step process to make every visit comfortable. Even though European Wax Center® is national, the process is identical no matter which one you visit from here to LA. No matter which one you walk into the goal is to have you strut out ready to take on the world.

Now that European Wax Center® has me feeling like a pro and all of my new best friends work there, I’ve already scheduled my next reservation for right before I head out to Las Vegas. I’ve never felt so confident and at ease with hair removal.
