First Time Information
If it’s your first time getting waxed, a facial treatment, or massage, please let us know. The most important thing is for you to relax. The environment is created in such a way to help you relax, and escape the real world. Close your eyes; don’t feel like you have to talk the whole time. We are happy to facilitate relaxation by allowing you to sit quietly and enjoy the service. If you aren’t sure about where to go, what to wear, or what to do, simply ask, or let us know that it is your first time. If you are unsure of which treatment to choose, we will customize your facial or massage according to your skin-type.
