Ask for Kristan at Wax on! 3/24/2010

After reading reviews of nearly every waxing place in pdx, I decided to go to Wax on for my first brazillian bikini wax. I'm so addicted, I haven't stopped! I regularly see Kristan at the E Burnside location. She is fast and keeps you chatting through the whole experience. It was surprisingly not as painful as I imagined it could be and Kristan is so fast, you hardly have time to notice what is going on. I've recommended her to nearly every lady I know. Give them a call!! Pros: fast, friendly, as painless as it gets Cons: none! more

I believe in waxing again! 11/10/2009

I have been to a few places for brazilians in Portland. One local spa bruised me each time I went in. They kept telling me it was normal to be sore and discolored after getting a bikini wax. I didn't know any better so I thought waxing wasn't for me. But I really wanted to be smooth for my upcoming vacation so I decided to try a new place. Wax On had some pretty great reviews so I tried them. I've seen both Cass and Lindsey now and both experiences have been great! No bruises, no painful aftermath and it was over very fast! Both girls were friendly and talkative through the appointment and gave me lots of info on hair growth and home care. More than I got at the other place! The only downfall is that there are not real walls so you can hear what is going on in the rest of the spa. At first I felt a little exposed but the girls put me at ease. I'll definetly be back in the future. Pros: great service, good prices, free shots! Cons: partitions instead of walls more

terrible wax job 10/17/2009

I've been here twice. Once was a couple of years ago, for a lower leg wax, and was a perfectly fine experience. Then about six months ago I came in for a full leg wax. I'd been letting the hair grow for a while and was looking forward to smooth legs. I got an appointment on a Saturday, with someone who ended up being fairly new to the salon. This was a very painful wax--much, much worse than the previous time--and she did a haphazard job. I left with a significant amount of hair still on my legs and some wax that she didn't remove. My skin was red and irritated for many days--basically until the hair had grown back enough to make it time for shaving or a new wax. My boyfriend agreed that it was a waste of money... irritated skin, not smooth (long hairs remaining too!), etc. I'm never going back to wax on, despite my first experience being good. This more recent experience was that bad. I'm leaving three stars because I would have given it rave reviews after the first time... more

jevon pepper is the best waxer in portland! 6/15/2009

i have been getting waxed by someone for years in the ne neighborhood. it was never that great. i didn't know that until my friends and i were going to lunch at the 5th quad. we walked by wax on and decided to try it. jevon was super nice and squeezed us in an hour later. we ate our lunch, came back and got the BEST wax of our life. its been two weeks and still nothing! plus she is a block away from my house! thanks again jevon!! go see her on fridays at n. williams... Pros: in my hood! more

response to grh 4/6/2009

This email is in response to ""grh"" and any current or potential customers. Im disappointed to hear about this experience however I am glad that grh posted their review. Albeit a little unfavorable for Wax On, it provides an opportunity for the esthetician and I to review our policies and procedures and can be used as a learning experience. I certainly cant say whether this particular esthetician was feeling busy or feeling overwhelmed that particular day however, it shouldnt matter. Every client should receive the best service possible, the type of service that Wax On is not only known for but has won awards for! If a customer has an experience that was not up to ours or their expectations, I prefer to personally hear about it. I want everyone to have the best experience, guaranteed, when they come to Wax On. Again, I appreciate input. It is valuable to me. ""grh"" if you would like to contact me one of the best ways to reach me is via email at waxonspa1@yahoo(dot)com. Thank you for your patronage and support!!! more

A tramatic experience 3/27/2009

Let me first start with this: I am not a complainer. I'm pretty easy to please. If someone gives me relatively close to what I'm paying for, I'm happy. I don't like to rock any proverbial boats and it takes a lot to get me upset enough that I will even consider a complaint. So I didn't particularly want to write this bad review, but my brazilian waxing experience at this salon was so bad that I really don't want it to happen to anyone else. Pros: good sale during March Cons: it's a pretty long list more

Wax Wrong 3/24/2009

Don't go to this place on a saturday afternoon. The club upstairs has music rehearsals that shake the whole building. Asked for a specific shape for my eyebrow wax, the woman agreed, then gave me something different and explained why she didn't think what I asked for would work AFTER she did it her way. They don't look disastrous, but I don't think it's a flattering shape for me and it's not what I asked for. Not going back here. Pros: reasonably priced Cons: bad service, loud music more

jevon is the best 2/27/2009

i have gone to PLENTY of waxers in this city. none compare to jevon pepper. she is the best. quick and perfect. i have never been happier. thanks for fixing my brows! Pros: beautiful locations(especially n. williams), easy parking, JEVON! more

GO JEVON GO 10/21/2008

I have to say that it's not very often that you can go to a place take your paties off and spread 'em and feel great about it. I have a sensitive area and I came out feelin' grat and soft as rose petals Jevon is the BEST! more

Jevon is the best! 6/26/2008

So I go in for my first wax, I'm a bit nervous but I hear its great. Wax On is quiet with great ambiance and I immediately feel good when I am there. Pros: Great price, friendly staff, great wax! Cons: Still have to feel some pain.... more

must only be good at brazillians 6/24/2008

i got a regular bikini wax here and it was totally asymmetrical, it looked ridiculous! more

Best brazilian wax! 6/23/2008

I've been to several places in search of the best brazilian and finally found it at Wax On. The staff puts you instantly at ease and the spa is comfortable, sophisticated and trendy. I've been going to Kristan for over 9 months and can't imagine someone better! Wax On and Kristan will always have my business. Pros: Ambience, Service, Price more

Best Pube-Removal....Ever 6/13/2008

I've gone to plenty of different people for Brazilians, but none are quite as fantastic as Jevon @ Wax On. She's lightning quick which creates minimal discomfort. Also, she is incredibly detailed. In the past, I've had to go home and finish plucking all the missed hairs. Not with Jevon. OCD is a great quality to have if you're going to be an esthetician. It still hurts, mind you, but they provide shots of either whiskey or tequila before you go back. Absolutely Genius! Pros: A little liquid courage before pain. Cons: Its hair removal...Ouch. more

Simply the best!!!! 1/11/2008

Thank you Wax On! I'm so excited I found you. What a positive experience through and through. My friends recommended me to Wax On and boy am I glad I got the nerve to go through with it! Kristan Garrett was my waxer. All I have to say is SHE ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so nervous and shy, but I knew as soon as she came in the room I was going to be fine. We talked the whole time and in 10 minutes I was done!! Wow... she didn't seem to be rushing, she just knows what shes doing. It sounds crazy but I can't wait for my 5 week follow up Brazilian because theres nothing to be scared of!! Pros: Staff, booze, great music Cons: nope more

Best Wax in P-town 1/9/2008

I have been looking for THE best wax for a couple of years and although a few have come close no-one has prompted me to write a review until now. Fast, clean, professional yet friendly. I am a bit of a wimpy waxer but this wax was so good it hurt significantly less than anything I have had before. You won't need the lidocaine. The first time costs a bit more but they give you a discount if you return within a certain time frame. It is worth every penny. Pros: staff, atmosphere more

Best Experience Possible 9/28/2007

I recently got a brazilian wax for the first time and I was really nervous. I called that morning and they were able to get me in for the an afternoon appionment. When I walked in the woman at the counter was so sweet and immediatly put me at ease. After meeting the woman that would wax me, Jevon, we talked and joked around for a few minutes. By the time I was actually in the room I felt way better. Jevon was quick, efficient, hilarious and friendly. I will never get waxed anywhere else in town, this was the best possible waxing experience I could have imagined. Pros: Friendly staff, availability, relaxing environment Cons: only parking but it really isnt bad just need to find street parking. more

Best Brazillians in Portland! 8/1/2007

These guys do an excellent job waxing. I got a brazillian wax done here multiple times and it was as close to painless as I could imagine it being. The staff are all super friendly and make you feel really comfortable, even though you are laying on a bed with no pants on! I was kept laughing the entire time and before I knew it, it was done! They do such a great job! Pros: Speedy Service. Friendly Staff. Very thorough. Cons: Parking can be tough. more

Best Wax Anywhere 4/4/2007

I've been going to Wax On Regularly for the last 9 months for my eye brows. I have pale, sensitive skin that turns red easily. So, I left the other places I'd gone beet red around the eyes. But, the wax they use at Wax On is much more gentle, and I leave with just some slight pinkness. Pros: Great service every time. Always fits me within a day or two from when I call. Cons: Can some times be tough to get through on the phone, because they don't have a regular receptionist more
