I have been going to Melissa for almost 10 years now. She is the only person I trust to wax my brows. She is an amazing esthetician and a wonderful conversationalist. I look forward to my appointments with her!

Have gone back twice now since the first time. Stellar service and experience each time. You get what you pay for, so all you girls who are looking to save a few bucks, don’t skimp on this. It’s 100% worth it. PS: Bought from Melissa some after-care product the last time for soothing ingrowns, has worked well.

I have been going to Melissa to get my brows done for about 10 years. I would never trust my brows to anyone else. I have also experienced the delightful Brazilian wax and I have to say – it is not that bad. I would highly recommend Melissa; she is fast and does a great job. She also has adorable dogs!!

From the second I walked in, she was friendly and engaging, providing comfortable conversation during a potentially uncomfortable situation. The wax itself was quick and virtually painless.
