I have finally found my permanant waxer. Least pain ever, gets every hair, doesn't leave me sticky, comfy atmosphere, good conversation...what more could I expect?


All reviews seem positive

Great experience! 3/5/2012

Deserves more than 5 stars 3/4/2012

I live in NYC and travel to Portland regularly. I always get waxed by Lisa at Portland waxing because she is far superior to anyone I ever tried in NYC. She's fast, friendly, professional and very detailed in her work. She has a private waiting room where you don't get gawked at like in so many salon type places. Very comfortable for a guy to go to. more

Great Wax, No Drama 1/23/2012

I am a little girl when it comes to pain. When I was five, I fell off of my bicycle and cried for a week. The same thing happened two months ago. I never thought that I would be able to handle waxing. It's something that I assumed only tougher people than me were up to. more

Best in the business! 11/21/2011

It's hard for a guy to find a wax in Portland. It's even harder for a guy to find a good wax. Add in not wanting to feel creepy by going into a girly spa place and I thought it was impossible until I found Lisa at Portland Waxing. She gave me a great wax and her place is very gender neutral. She doesn't act like she's ""willing"" to wax guys, she very clear that she welcomes guys (check out her website). She waxes men all the time and it shows in her comfort level handling the goods. She goes about everything in a way that makes you feel like it's perfectly normal to be laying naked while having someone pull the hair from your nether regions. Now that takes talent. I've found my new waxer for sure. more

A Serious Waxing Professional 11/14/2011

Having lived in Malibu and Venice, it's difficult for me to admit that the best body waxer I've found over the years occupies a small studio in Portland, Oregon. Lisa is a serious waxing professional at the top of her game. I visit her regularly for a Brazilian and a back wax. The experience is virtually pain-free and Lisa always keeps me engaged (distracted). Her waxes are thorough, with no stray hairs left behind, and I've never experienced any irritation as I have from previous waxing experiences. Don't bother trying all the others. This is the place. more

Best Brazilian Ever!!! 11/14/2011

I had been going to one of the bigger waxx places in town and was happy with their work and prices, but one of my friends kept telling me I had to try Lisa at Portland Waxing. I finally gave in to the pressure and went and boy, am I glad I did. I thought I had been getting a good wax at the other place, but with Lisa, it was a great wax. I found out that I don't have to have missed hairs or bits of wax to clean up when I get home. Lisa hurt less, took the time to get every hair and then did immaculate clean up. To top it all off, she waxed away my happy trail and the fuzzy spot on the small of my back for free, actually making her less expensive than the other place (they charged for every little thing). Another great thing about Lisa is that since she's a one woman show, I know I'll get the same great service every time. No more having to expose myself to new waxers each time. I've been back 3 times now and won't be going anywhere else. Why settle for good, when you can have GREAT! more

Don't settle for anything less than the best! Go to Lisa! 9/23/2011

I've been going to Lisa of Portland Waxing for my Brazilians for the last three years. Before that, I'd gotten waxed at many places all over the country and Portland and can solidly confirm that you will never get a better wax than the ones that Lisa provides. I have unusual growth patterns and dark, thick hair. Lisa always takes the time necessary with me so I can walk out of the salon looking and feeling great. In addition to my brazilian, she always does my inner thighs, cheeks, lower back, and happy trail for no extra charge. She even spends as long as she needs to get any stray or ingrown hair. All these extra services and I'm still in and out in 30 minutes or so. Also, Lisa uses high quality products that have never irritated my uber sensitive skin. She's sure fun to talk to, too :) I so look forward to my wax every month! more

Lisa is Phenominal! 4/18/2011

Lisa is definitely the best waxer in the area. She specializes in just waxing making her really good at it. She is fast, knowledgeable and highly professional. Great, affordable prices too! more

Nothing but waxing. It's a good thing. 1/10/2011

I think that the thing that makes Lisa stand out in her profession is that she just waxes. Waxing, that's facials, no peels, no nothing but waxing and when you do only one thing, you get really, really good at it and it's that simple...Lisa is really, really good at it. Fast, knowledgable, thorough, professional. Couldn't ask for anyone better at the job than her. more

Waxing perfection 12/8/2010

I've been waxed many times all over the country and nobody has ever come close to the job that Lisa at Portland Waxing did. Friendly, quick, VERY thorough, great clean up. To top it off, she waxed a small patch at the small of my back, ripped off my happy trail and got a few stray hairs way down my one thigh....and didn't charge anything extra! Most places I've been to will nickel and dime you for every extra little bit, making it easy to double your bill by the time you walk out the door. Not with Lisa. She's the best! Thanks! more

Best brazilian wax in Portland! 11/28/2010

I've tried out different waxing places eve since I started getting waxed. Some were awful, some were really awful, some not so bad, some good. But, I just had my first wax with Lisa at Portland Waxing and have found my new permanant waxer. No one else in town even comes close to her skill level. She jumps right in, removes every hair (almost painlessly), cleans you up and has you done before you know it. No stickiness, no soreness, no problems. She's also a lot of fun to talk to and makes you really comfortable to be participating in such an embarrassing experience. I'll be back over and over again. Thanks, Lisa!!! more

BEST WAXER EVER!! 11/15/2010

I have been getting waxed for over ten years and Lisa is by far the best. She is so incredibly thorough but still quick. I have been to waxers not only in Oregon but California as well and she is hands down the best there is. The product she uses is great. I dont get ingrown hairs and the redness is gone by the end of the day. I highly recommend her for all your waxing needs! more

A true professional 11/12/2010

I've been getting my back waxed for several years. My last place closed down so I was in the market for a new waxer when I found Lisa. I just had my first wax from her and I can't imagine I'll ever go to anybody else again. Most places I have been to will wax my back and send me on my way with all the hair still on my shoulders. Then I have to either shave/clip down the shoulder hair or walk around looking like an idiot. Lisa, however, was a whole new experience in back waxing. She waxed the whole back, then went to town on the shoulder hair. I was still in awe over the shoulder thing when she started tapering/blending my upper arm and top of my chest hair line. She went about it like she was doing art, but shes also really, really fast. I walked out looking like I never had back hair to begin with when always before I would leave a back wax appointment looking like I had just had my back hair removed. I will absolutely be back. I already scheduled my next appointment. Oh, and like the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae....she charged less than the last place. more

Waxing for all shapes and sizes 11/1/2010

God cursed me with a hairy back, and to make matters worse, I'm a middle aged (ouch) pasty guy who could lose more than a few pounds. Taking my shirt off in front of total strangers isn't something I normally do, but at the urging (hounding) of my wife, I finally made an appointment to have the back hair dealt with. I've got to really give kudos to Lisa. She never batted an eye when I peeled my shirt off. She went about her work and engaged me in conversation and 15 minutes later I was getting dressed. She totally put me at ease. I can rest easy knowing that this is something I can do without worries once a month or so. My wife was thrilled with the smooth back and even happier when I told her I'd already booked my next appointment. Thanks for making a stressful decision into a happy experience all around. more


Lisa is really something. She knows about perfecting a craft. Highly specialized and highly skilled. She knows how to do it right. I get a perfect wax, great conversation, cool atmosphere...she's got it all. I doubt there is a better wax in the U.S., let alone the great PNW. Pros: The best anywhere! more

Who thought getting waxed could be relaxing? 6/2/2010

I always thought that getting a bikini or brazilian wax was going to hurt like hell, but to my surprise, Lisa made the whole experience relaxing and totally comfortable. She's laid back, and is really comfortable at what she is doing. My session was so less painful than what I thought it would be. I will definitely be back to Lisa, even though it is a 30 minute drive from my house. Pros: Laid back more

I Agree with all the other 5 stars 7/18/2009

I have been seeing Lisa for about a year now and she does an absolutely fantastic job. She is very thorough and detailed. It doesn't hurt that she is a sweetheart and relaxed, either. Highly recommended. Pros: Great job, very detailed more

Favorite place! 1/8/2009

This place is amazing! They have the best customer service. I never have to worry about anything because they always do a great job on everything that I need done. more

Incredible wax experience! 9/24/2008

I must admit that I was scared when I booked my appointment. Just the thought a getting a Brazilian made me break out in a sweat, but I picked up the phone and called anyway. Lisa was really nice when I talked to her. She answered my questions and booked my appointment, then the dread set in. I was sweating bullets when I walked in, but she was very reassuring and welcomed me like an old friend. She is highly professional, but manages to be really warm at the same time. She waxed me and she talked to me and before I knew it, I was enjoying the conversation so much, I almost forgot I was getting waxed. She is quite possibly one of the genuinely nicest, friendliest women I've ever met....She has such an open and caring personality that I can't imagine anyone being nervous around her. Before I knew it, my wax was over. There was not a single hair left that didn't belong and I walked out in zero pain. It's been a week since I got waxed and I'm loving the smooth feel. I will be going back over and over again! Pros: Prompt, comfortable, highly skilled Cons: none whatsoever more


I was at the end of my rope as far as waxing was concerned. I have very course dark hair and every salon I had been to befor didnt come close to meeting my expectaions as far as comfort and COMPLETE hair removal was concerned. Lisa was going to be my final go at waxing and I cant exspress enough how overjoyed I am with her service. She knows exactly what she's doing, pays attention to detail, she's very professional, and is one of the most comfortable people to be around. I would NEVER dream of going to another salon, everything about her services is PERFECT and I recomend her to EVERYONE!!! Pros: Very fast in and out service, parking Cons: NON more
