I get both my eye brows and the brazilian wax done by Shanna and no complaints. Excellent job, clean establishment and friendly service. I highly recommend Helenas. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: Best in town
I have been a customer of Helenas since I moved to Houston 2 1/2 years ago and have always felt comfortable with Shanna waxing me!
Pros: Very clean and professional
Cons: Specials not offered for frequent customers
It was the first time I ever was waxed. Brittany was gentle, professional. I am definitely returning.
Pros: pleasant atmosphere, clean, pain free
I would recommend Helenas to everyone. My first time there was a great one. Christina was my aesthetician and she was great. She really seemed to care and even recommended some products. I'll will definitely be back and will refer everyone here
Pros: very friendly and clean
The staff is very knowledgable and friendly. I drive 60 miles to go to Helena's because I feel comfortable with her staff. The are very respectful and tend to each person as a VIP!
Pros: very proffessional
My expierence here was very positive. They were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable!
Pros: Made everything very positive and comfortable.
Shanna was wonderful!
Pros: Friendly and efficient
I went for the first time to Helenas a couple of weeks ago and really like the attention and more over the service. I didn't suffer the waxing, and the post waxing, which is usually horrible, was very smooth.\r
I moved to Houston from Baltimore last year and had been contemplating getting my first Brazilian wax since then. However, in a new city with not many contacts to get referrals, I was hesitant. Recently, I decided to start doing some research to find a location that had great customer service and would take the best care of me. I was extremely nervous about it given some of the horror stories I have received from friends. I ended up checking out City Search and found Helenas Brazilian Wax and Spa. When I got my first Brazilian wax and it was awesome. It was uncomfortable but not unbearable. I have stopped getting my eyebrows waxed (I get them threaded now) but it was touch more uncomfortable than that. I think the part that made it less painful was that Christina (my aesthetician) was very skilled at keeping me entertained and took the time to make sure I was ok. I have already scheduled my next appointment!
Pros: Best Customer Service and Care
As a (straight) Male I was Worried, But through out entire process Helena was very professional, made me feel at ease. The service was outstanding! The Brazilian Wax was giving to me as a bday gift from the wifey, but will return for future service!
Pros: Very professional
Cons: Didnt Encounter any
I was a tad nervous but was put to ease by the friendly staff. Brittany was very nice and made me feel welcomed. Can't wait to recommend my friends!\r
Pros: Wonderful Staff and clean place
I came to Helena's for my first waxing experience and walked away with the feeling I would come on a regulary basis. \r
For the first time, I was very nervous but was put to ease by the friendly staff. Since then, I have come back regularly and never been disappointed.\r
Always clean and the more you go, you begin to somewhat get used to the slight pain from the brazilian waxing :-)
Pros: Clean, friendly staff, puts you at ease
Cons: rooms always seem a little warm or it could be the anxiety!
This was my best waxing experience by far. I have been waxed at several other salons over the years however at Helena's I received good service and Christina was very knowledgeable and skilled. As long as I live in the Houston area I won't go to another location. They really do care about their clients and try to provide them with the best waxing experience possible!
I have been a happy client for over a year! I love Isabelle -- she is very thorough, always has a smile on her face, listens to what I need/want, and goes out of her way to make my busy schedule work! I am very happy every time I leave Helena's, and that is so rare these days. They are the best in Houston!!
Pros: very professional and friendly
Cons: no complaints!
Shanna is amazing!!! Very educated about her job. Explained every step before she did it, told me what to expect, and precautions to take after waxing. Definitely eased my worries for my first-time Brazilian.
Pros: Always quick & on-time, courteous, informative on services
Shanna is the reason. Very professional, fun to talk to and makes the procedure go by fast with her expertise. I have no reason to switch and go anywhere else.
Pros: Clean professional atmosphere
Hey- it has been five years since I got a brazilian wax. Ouch! LOL\r
I had Brittany who was very nice and good, she talked the whole time, she is quick and efficient! \r
The salon itself is clean, discreet, ringing the door bell is a good policy, super professional etc. And they do not push products on you but they are there if you would like to purchase, which is great. A friend recommended me here and I am glad she did! I will be back. For a first timer, I definitely recommend this place, and then you will see yourself more than likely returning.
Pros: Convenient location, clean, nice staff, competitive price
Helenas wax and spa is the best I've been to in Houston! The salon is always clean and the staff is very professional. I do and continue to reccommend them to my friends!
Helenas wax and spa is the best in Houston!!!!\r
Have been to many many other places around from galveston through houston...
Pros: Have the best spa services in town.
This is the best place - everyone is so friendly and it is SO clean!! I would recommend them to anyone!
Pros: CLEAN & PROFESSIONAL
Cons: Wished they had more locations!!
Helena's salon is definitely a great establishment in Houston. From the time I walked in I was greeted with great service and caring employees.\r
My waxing experience was better than I could of imagine. Yes, of course it was uncomfortable especially since it was my first brazilian, but Isabella was quite gentle with me. I would recommend her to others if you are getting the same service. I will definitely come back again in future from them to do my waxing.
Pros: Knowledgeable and genuinely nice staff
I would reccomend this place to everyone I know.
Pros: Very professional staff
I have had waxing done before, but always in Brazil. However, this was the most pleasant experience I have ever had. They used special wax for my very sensitive skin and the result was amazing! Will keep coming back!
Pros: Excellent service
Shana was so attentive and patient during my first trip to the Spa! I can't wait for my second trip and I plan to experience more of the wonderful services offered!
Pros: Great Staff, Great Service
Cons: Didn't find it sooner
I first came to Helena's in 2007 on a whim before going on a trip to Cancun, and I have been coming back ever since. For a Brazilian wax, I simply can't imagine going anyplace else. Love everybody there, love the salon, love the service. Highly recommend!!!!
Helenas is very clean and the staff very professional. I have been visiting for a few months now and have no negative comments. This was not the first place I had visited for a brazilian but it is definitely the best. The girl that helps me, Christina, does a great job and is very professional about it. Great place!!
Pros: clean, professional, private
Helena has been my aesthetician for more than 7 years now. During the time Helena was preparing to open her own salon, I was forced to use other specialists and the experience was not pleasant. Helena sets very high standards for herself and her staff. Now, when Helena is unavailable I am 110% confident and comfortable that any member of her team at Helena's Brazilian Wax & Spa will provide the exceptional level of service and professionalism that I am accustomed to from Helena herself.
Pros: Professional Service, Educated Staff
Cons: An hour from home, but worth the drive!
I had been contemplating getting a Brazilian for a while, but was putting it off because I was worried it would be too embarrassing. I finally decided to bite the bullet, and I can't believe I waited so long! Everyone at Helena's was so friendly and professional. As soon as the waxing started, Laura put me completely at ease - and the results are amazing. I will be a loyal customer for a long time.
Pros: friendly, professional staff
First, Im a very shy person. I have hesitated to have this done because of the ""pain"". But for it being my first experience, the employees made me feel really comfortable even tho I was extremely nervous. It does hurt a bit (even after the numbing cream), but the results are wonderful. I would definately keep coming back.
Pros: Clean, friendly employees
Best wax in town - have been going for a while and it's great!
I had never gotten a wax before and I was nervous but the staff at Helenas were just amazing. They made me feel welcomed and at ease. And the waxing was done very well, they answered all my questions and even gave me advice. I am definitly going back to Helenas for all of my waxing. Its a great place for first timers!!
I went for my first brazilian back in March and am going back again! Isabel was great and answered all of my questions. I told her I was nervous and she put my mind at ease. If you are having any reservations about getting a brazilian done - don't - Helenas is a great place to go.
Pros: Great Aesthetician
I was waxed by Shanna and I have been waxing for some time now at other salons. My waxing here was the best that I have ever had. She was very professional, took her time and made it as painless as possible. I will definitely be going back. Helenas is very clean and cozy. Highly recommended.
Pros: professional / very thorough
I have been considering a bikini wax for some time and found Helena's on CitySearch. I called to schedule an appointment and all of my questions were answered patiently and informatively. I scheduled myself for a Brazilian wax and I love my results! Shanna was my technician and she was comforting, professional, and personable. I cannot say it was painless, but it was much better than I was expecting. I am extremely happy with the results and will be returning to Helena's for future appointments.\r
fyi - mention citysearch for a discount
Pros: clean, professional, safe, comfortable
Helena's was so great - I stopped by after a busy day running errands and Helena helped my to unwind and relax during the services. The shop was clean and very peaceful. I will go back every time I need a wax!
Pros: Knowledgeable Staff
Cons: Far away from my house :(
My aesthecian, Christina, put me at ease immediately after I entered the room. She was gentle and patient with respect to being my first time doing the Brazilian wax. If you've had any type of waxing done, this was a piece of cake. Not at all what I was dreading!!!
Pros: Did not hurt at all
Shanna is great - I highly rec'd her! I have had countless bikini/brazilian waxes, and it is so nice to go somewhere that you know will be a good experience every time. Thanks!
Pros: Quick, professional
I have never had a true, full Brazilian Wax until I had mine done in March of 2009. What I can tell you is WOW!! I was so pleased with the outcome and the service was excellent! It is not the most comfortable procedure to receive nor is it the most comfortable position to be in, but the ""waxer"" was very purposeful in assuring that I was comfortable and that the procedure was a painless as it could be (under the circumstances).
I highly recommend Helena's for personal body waxing services. In the future, I will be trying other services that they offer. I am certainly returing for the maintenance of my waxing.
Pros: Excellent Service
Cons: It's a wax--of course there's gonna be a little discomfort
I had my first brazilian wax done about a month ago and I am so pleased with the results. I was very scared thinking it would hurt and be very uncomfortable...those feelings all went away shortly after arriving at Helena's. The staff was very nice, helpful, and knowledgeable...they provided information and products you can purchase to apply at home. The whole experience was wonderful they really know how to make you feel comfortable and put you at ease in a situation that doesn't necessarily sound appealing. Shanna did a wonderful job, I'm returning very soon for my follow-up! :)
Pros: Very Comfortable and Knowledgeable
That was my first time to get a brazilian wax so I did not know what to expect. It was not as bad as people say it is. Laura did a great job and I would strongly recommend Helena's to my friends and family.
Pros: So professional and did a great job
Cons: None at all
I am one of those people that is very shy when it comes to brazilian waxing! I went once back home (Canada) and didn't have the greatest experience and said I would never go back. I searched online for a great place in Houston, just out of curiosity. I came across this website and read all the comments about how clean they are and very friendly. I decided to go in, I wasn't sure what to expect. I have to say it was the most comforable setting possible, the staff is super friendly, and make you feel very very very at ease. I watched to see if they were as clean as everyone commented, and was very happy to see that they really are SUPER CLEAN....no exaggeration! This is a great place to go if you are picky about cleanliness and feeling comfortable, as I am. I recommend this place to all my friends, and they too were very happy with Helena's. :)
Pros: SUPER CLEAN, and Friendly
I love this place. It is the best thing that I've done to make myself and my husband. \r
This was a decision I made based upon my friend's experience. I will never shave again.
Cons: itches when grows back sometimes
I went to Helenas for my first wax and have never gone anywhere else. They are so friendly and make the experience much more comfortable. I recommend all my friends to this place because I love it so much. If you havent had anything waxed I suggest you go here for your first time. lol
Pros: Clean and Friendly
Helena's technique is the best. I have had brazlians done all over the world and never have been as satisfied as when I have mine done here. I have converted many friends to trying Helena and they all love it.
Pros: Best Brazilian in town
I have never had a wax before so I was very nervous when I first arrived. Everyone was so friendly and put me right at ease. \r
Shanna was amazing! She explained everything and made me feel comfortable and not awkward at all. It wasn't nearly as painful as I had anticipated and was over quickly. I would recommend Helenas to anyone!
Pros: Quick, clean, and they make you feel comfortable
If you ever need a great Brazilian wax that is PAIN free, this is the place to go. \r
They are very friendly and take their time. Helena's waxes are almost pain free. She has a soft touch and makes sure this process is as comfortable as possible.\r
It's easy to set up an appointment and you get friendly reminders.\r
Helena's has great friendly staff and a very clean environment. \r
I strongly recommend Helena's.
Pros: Best Brazilian Wax place in Houston.
I drive 25 miles to go here! Everyone is so professional, and I have never seen as clean of a spa as this one -- will never go anywhere else!!
Pros: Every Attendant is Professional ~ Best Place in Town
Cons: Wished they had more locations!!
Isabel put me at complete ease and made my first experience a wonderful one. Im going back to get ready for my honeymoon now. Their pacjages are reasonable and well worth the cost.
Pros: Great for a first time waxer
I have had many horrible waxing experiences at other salons, but after reading the reviews on citysearch, I decided to give Helena's a try. The brazilian wax was fantastic, painless, and thorough. I recommend this salon to everyone and will never again try another salon for my bikini waxes.
Pros: Painless, Experienced Staff, made you feel at ease
I am new to Houston from LA and was dreading the process of researching and finding a new place to have my brazilian wax done. I came across Helena's just by doing a quick google search on line..and was brave and took a chance of just showing up (without an appointment) on Saturday morning. I was pleasantly suprised by the cleaniess of the Spa Lobby and was greeted friendly upon entering. I highly recommend you checking out this place, everyone was nice, professional and the results were perfect! Good Luck and Enjoy!
Pros: One of my best wax experiences
Cons: More expensive then what I am use to
