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?

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.\n

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.\r\n\r\nSo when my boyfriend bought me a gift certificate for a Brazilian wax at Portland Waxing, my response was: ""Have you even met me?""\r\n\r\nHe assured me that Lisa would take good care of me. No pain. No new nightmares. No psych meds needed. He was right. She's the best at what she does and I have now been a monthly client for a year. Thank you, Lisa, for not being scary. I'll see you again soon.

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.\r\n

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.

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!

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!

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

\n \nI think that the thing that makes Lisa stand out in her profession is that she just waxes. Waxing, that's it...no 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.\n

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!

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!!!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

After having 3 miserable Brazilian waxing experiences in a row, it took me a year to gather the courage to try again. My previous experiences left me near tears, in so much pain and ready to walk out with half the wax still on! Lisa was thorough, knowledgeable and professional. I'm still amazed that it really wasn't all that painful! If you are a first-timer or like I was, still looking for The One - see Lisa!

I think I called Lisa 3 times asking questions about the male brazilian before I made an appointment. She must have the patience of a saint because every time I called, she was nice an friendly and took her time answering my questions. I finally decided I should either make an appointment or leave the poor woman alone. I went in and got waxed and it was so easy I felt like an idiot for all of the stalling I did. If you are thinking about doing it, just go for it. What else can i say? She's nice. She's friendly. She funny. She does a hell of a great job.

I want everyone to know how awesome the whole experience was. Thank you so much Lisa. I will definatley be back!!!!

I have been to many different waxing professionals through out the years, but Lisa was and is by far the most outstanding waxer in town. She is always polite and professional. Her shop is immaculately clean. She has a great sense of humor, and has always made me feel at ease while I am getting waxed. Considering getting waxed is not my favorite thing to go through, this is saying a lot. I will continue to utilize Lisa's great waxing talents and refer her to all my friends.\r\n\r\n THANKS LISA! :)

I had my first brazilian about 6 months ago at one of the fancy spas. It took a long time and hurt like hell. When the girl was all done my ....uhm....parts were really sore and had red patches where I was missing skin. The waxer told me that this was normal and that it would heal up in a week or so.....I swore to God I'd never do it again, but somehow found myself thinking about it again recently. I found Lisa here on City Search then read her website. Just reading her website made me feel better. I still didn't have enough nerve, so I emailed her and asked a bunch of questions. She was very patient and clearly knew her stuff . I finally made an appointment. She was really, really nice. Just the kind of person who makes everybody comfortable. She did the waxing and I was blown away at the difference from last time. It didn't hurt anywhere near as bad as before and she was done before I knew it. Then she handed me a mirror and told me to check it out. There was not a single hair left at all, but best of all, I had all my skin. I wasn't even sore when I left. My girlfriend loved it and has her own appointment booked with Lisa next week. I'm a convert. I'll be getting waxed from here on out, but nobody's doing it but Lisa!

lisa does an amazing job. she is very professional and knows what she's doing. i went to her for a brazilian wax not knowing if i would be able to actually go through with it, since my last waxing experience included lots of pain skin missing and bad clean up. when i got to the place it wasn't too difficult to find and the people were very welcoming. lisa talked to me and let me know that she was a seasoned waxer and that it wasn't going to be as bad as i thought. she told me what she was going to do before she did anything which made me feel more at ease. the process didn't hurt half as bad as the last time i had been waxed and she was very thorough and i had all my skin left. i really liked the place and would highly recommend going to her before anyone else she knows what shes doing and theres less pain. i am so happy i found her!

lisa does an amazing job. she is very professional and knows what she's doing. i went to her for a brazilian wax not knowing if i would be able to actually go through with it, since my last waxing experience included lots of pain skin missing and bad clean up. when i got to the place it wasn't too difficult to find and the people were very welcoming. lisa talked to me and let me know that she was a seasoned waxer and that it wasn't going to be as bad as i thought. she told me what she was going to do before she did anything which made me feel more at ease. the process didn't hurt half as bad as the last time i had been waxed and she was very thorough and i had all my skin left. i really liked the place and would highly recommend going to her before anyone else she knows what shes doing and theres less pain. i am so happy i found her!

Pros: every thing!

.

I can only parrot what everyone else has said, but just had to give one more recommendation for Lisa. She does her best you make you comfortable in an uncomfortable situation, has a great eye for detail and it is obvious that she is an expert in her field.

I recently moved to Portland and set about finding a new waxer. I found Lisa on City Search, then went into her website and was blown away by how knowledgable she was. I made an appointment and was not disappointed. Believe it or not, it actually hurt way less than any other Brazilian I've ever had (she's fast, too). I've most definately found my new waxer! Kudos Lisa!!!

Lisa is knowledgeable, personable and a quickly makes you feel right at home during the waxing process. She's a straight talker (see her web site) and is highly professional. I was a bit nervous out the gate, but she quickly makes you feel comfortable - even if you are sitting in a pretty awkward position... :) Thanks Lisa!

Due to my allergies and sensitive skin my doctor suggested my husband begin hair removal to avoid irritating the condition. He tried shaving first and then creams and soon found he was developing skin ""conditions"" of his own!\r\n\r\nFinally, out of desperation we began to explore waxing options. We found our salvation in Lisa. Although he was very nervous and more then a little shy about the whole thing he agreed to try it. \r\n\r\nWe called a couple of places but I just wasn't comfortable. Then we found Lisa right here on city search. From the minute she picked up the phone she seemed friendly and professional. She was able to answer all of my questions which set my husbands mind at ease. \r\n\r\nHe was so pleased with the results....(and so was I!!!) He said that not only did she know waxing she knew people. She immediately knew how to make him feel comfortable and at ease. He was most surprised at how relatively painless it was. Certainly better then the shaving...ouch!\r\n\r\nNow, thanks to Lisa we are both enjoying irritation free skin and life has never been sweeter...wink wink!!!

Pros: Rare mix of professional and people skills

Cons: there aren't more like her in other professions...

Lisa is what I call a ""plain talker"". I was nervous when I first called her, but she put me at ease immediately. She just tells it like it is, didn't mince any words, answering all my questions simply and completely. On my first appointment, I found that she's the same in person. She made me comfortable, but more importantly, she's comfortable. She seems completely at ease with what she's doing....no nervousness, no embarrassment....and a great sense of humor. As far as I'm concerned, she's got a customer for life.

A great service! Lisa really knows what she is doing, plus she doesn't push a product sale to her customers. I would recommend her to anyone at anytime! She is the best in the business by far!

Seems like there are very few places in Portland where a guy can get himself a brazilian wax. Lisa at Kiss Kiss in North Portland does male brazilians and she does a fantastic job. \r\n\r\nBeen going to Kiss Kiss for a few months now and will keep going back. It was great to call for the first appointment and not be treated like freak for wanting a brazilian. Lisa really puts you at ease. The attitude is like ""hey... hair is hair; parts are parts. It's no big deal."" She doesn't miss a single hair either!
