The first time I got a Brazilian, I went to (now known as Secret Tempo) Buzio's. In my experience (I've tried 2 other salons), I have found that no other place compares. They have late hour appointments available, and are very patient with clients who have a low tolerance for pain. Getting a Brazilian is not the most pleasant experience, but it helps if pleasant people are around while you're in pain:) The price is reasonable, the location is central, and the process is quick.

Pros: Location, Price, Staff, Procedure

Cons: Parking

I've been here about 4 times and so far this is the best place to get a brazilian wax. The waxing was tolerable and it was very thorough. The technician makes sure every single hair is gone, if the wax didn't get every hair she will tweeze the few hairs that are there. She does an excellent job with cleaning you up so you won't get stuck to your underwear.

My normal Brazilian Waxing haven has been Bliss Spa but in effort to save time and lack of an appt., I ran over to little Brazil. "Buzios"and "Secret tempo" Spas are the same place. Secret Tempo has a website. You are supposed to make an appt but they were able to take me. The overall B-waxing process is unpleasant but this place was not that bad. It lacks the zen of bliss but it's all the same process. I do NOT have a high threshold for pain and did not find the experience to be that bad. If you are pressed for time and lack an appt. I don't see anything wrong with this place for a wax. Bliss is still a better experience at a mere $20 more then Secret Tempo's charge of $50. Despite the strange name and brow raising male patrons present, I found Buzios/Secret a better place then a nail salon for the full monty!

Pros: It's possible to get in without an appt., pleasant staff.

Cons: Place does not really look like spa. It lacks zen.

I have a very high tolerance for pain and this was the worst brazilian I ever had. i actually had to tell her to stop. They use cheap GiGi wax so I had stubble in about 3days..not acceptable..And for some odd reason she used preparation H wipes to cleanse afterwards..strange..Needless to say, don't waste your time it wasn't worth the money at all.

Pros: none

Cons: unskilled waxing tech

And they were accommodating, managing to fit me in the day I called and even offered to come in early to get me in before work the next day. The price is right too BUT it was not the gentlest Brazillian I've gotten. It was quick (I was out in 20 minutes) also a reflection of the price I think, In my experience more time would have made the process less rough. However, Dorma my aesthetician was very friendly and there was a comfortable rapport. She listened when I needed a minute to recover and asked all the right questions about wax temperature, etc.

Pros: Quick; convenient, unpretentious mid town locale; friendly; affordable

Cons: One of the more painful waxes I've gotten... anywhere.
