In a frantic search for Raleigh's perfect waxing service, I stumbled upon the rave reviews of Adara Spa. My call was greeted with genuine courtesy, and they were extremely flexible with scheduling my appointment for the same day, even going so far as to take into consideration the distance I would be driving to make the appointment.
When I got a bit turned around in the parking area, the same bright lady helped me find my way into the building, even answering the phone this time with my name; and extremely personal and hospitable touch. You can tell these ladies really want to make their clients feel special, even before you walk in the door.
The facility is very clean, warm and inviting, with enough privacy for clients, and plenty of sunlight. I was greeted warmly by Sunny, who was apparently not only the kind woman on the other end of the phone, but the lady who would be providing my waxing service. Sunny was not only professional, she was extremely precise and also wanted my input as we went along with the removal. She was extremely accommodating. Her method of waxing is nothing like the painful strips I was used to ( and lived in fear of ) with my visits to other salons in the past. I have extremely sensitive skin and I have felt not the slightest bit of irritation or soreness since 10 minutes after leaving the appointment. Sunny really knows what she's doing; I highly recommend her to the woman who wants perfection, who insists upon high sanitation, who enjoys banter with an intelligent well travelled woman, and above all appreciates service with real working women, as opposed to the often times sterile, boring 2 dimensional providers at other salons.
This place, and these ladies are top notch. I'm so tempted to purchase my girlfriends gift cards to this place for the holidays, and I very much look forward to returning.
Pros: Friendly down to earth staff, warm cozy environment, amazing customer service
