Although not the spa-like retreat it tries to be, Urban Retreat still offers a great selection of services in an urban environment. Waxes, hair, nails, makeup, and massage are all offered.
The atmosphere is great- an open area with magazines to read and jars of candy to eat while you wait. The staff and clientèle are on the younger side and always youthful and hip.
I used to go for an eyebrow or leg wax once in a while and they always did their best to make it a relaxing experience- which isn't easy. The lady who waxed my brows, always stylish, friendly and smiling, would take me to a small quiet room with light music, ask me exactly what I wanted, then politely carry on a conversation as the hairs were extracted. I had a bad experience only once when they had a makeup artist do my brows who didn't really know what she was doing, but I called and they gave me a second complimentary appointment with a much more skillful waxer.
Urban offers a fun, hip, and generally enjoyable place to forget about the buzzing streets surrounding you and sit back for once to be pampered.
