In a continuing effort to reduce the heat load on my body and to help restore a fresher and cleaner look, it was time for a little back waxing. Now for those who have experienced back waxing (or any waxing for that matter) knows all too well that there is an element of pain involved in the process. \r
There just is.\r
That said the pain is effectively lessened by the aromatically appealing treatment room complete with soothing Zen-like music and warm lighting which all combined add to the relaxing environment Mistie creates for the waxing. The room is equipped with a comfortable massage-like table with a nice thick pad which somewhat conforms to your body. All of the equipment in the room appeared to be clean and well maintained.\r
During the waxing Mistie kept me informed of what she was doing and offered to do a count down each time she pulled off the tape. I refused the countdown as I always love a surprise! After the treatment Mistie applied a series of nice balms to my reddish back which really soothed my skin and truly helped the recovery process. After a few precautionary do?s and don?ts from Mistie I was on my way. The whole experience took approximately 45 minutes which, in my book, was perfectly acceptable.\r
Overall, the salon is quite industrial in feel; very urban, clean and sleek with open hair stations, an adjacent manicure and pedicure area as well as the private treatment rooms along the back of the space. The floors are bare concrete and not the requisite white square tiles. The staff at FACE is very professional, all were very attractive, warm and quite engaging. I truly enjoyed the pain and will certainly use Mistie again when the time comes. In the mean time I?ll try and sneak in now and then for a little less painful self indulgence.\r
Pros: Finally a place for us! Beautiful women! No overselling or pushing of products. Zero stress/drama environment. Did I mention the beautiful women there??
Cons: A little more than other places ($10 more than several others I called)... but see above...
