I have really sensitive skin. I have tried waxing before and was rewarded with bruising all over. Now, five years later, my hair has became thicker and razors are much more expensive so I decided to try waxing again. I was very concerned about the experience so I researched all the spas on City Search. I was looking for a place that was going to give me personalized, friendly, professional service that would listen to my concerns and if I was lucky not bruise me in the end. I was immediately drawn to Nomi Day Spa because it was owned and operated by the same person who was going to take care of me- not some employee of a spa that didn't necessarily have a vested interest in my happiness and satisfaction. From setting the appoinment to getting stripped Naomi has been exactly what I was looking for- personal, friendly, professional and guess what? I didn't bruise!!! YAY! The fact that her spa is calming and inviting doesn't hurt either! Naomi's personal touch to her practice reminds me of how business' used to be- you know when you actually got above and beyond the service you expected because they actually cared? I never thought I would say this but I look forward to getting waxed!! The whole experience is actually enjoyable- thank you Naomi!!
Pros: Service, Skill, Professionalism, Personality, Parking
Cons: Not easily biked to, but a very quick (10 min) drive from my Noe Valley, Mission, Bernal location
