Things are not always as they are portrayed. After spending 2 MONTHS reading reviews and searching for a new waxer I was happy to find a place that was open that worked with my schedule.\r

The Wax Shack had lots of great reviews and that's what drew me in. I had one wax (Brazilian/brow) and the experience was overall positive--although I noted that Angie didn't really listen to my concerns or indulge questions. When I said

I recently moved from New York to Portland and have been in search of a local salon to do my monthly brazilian..after trying out a few different places, I found Angie at the Wax Shack. I will never go anywhere else! Angie is fun, efficient, and reasonably priced. I have never had a quicker or less painful wax in my life! Its amazing- I no longer dread this monthly appointment, in fact I even look forward to it (is that weird?!) 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!

Emily is amazing! The Wax Shack is a no-nonsense salon right outside the Pearl with free parking, and a really low price for a really great wax! She was fast and thorough, and kept me distracted with good conversation the whole time. It's hard to be totally at ease with no pants on sometimes - but not at the Wax Shack! You will not be dissapointed if you try this place!

I had a little issue with transportation getting to my appointment so I was about 30 minutes late, but Angie was totally understanding! She managed to squeeze me in later even though her whole day was booked. This was my first wax, but it was an excellent experience (well, as excellent as getting the hair torn out of your nether regions can be...). The waxing process was barely painful at all and Angie was great about distracting me from any discomfort with conversation. The whole thing was done amazingly fast!

I will definitely be back again.

Pros: price, friendliness, speed, very little pain!

Cons: location is a little out of the way for public transit

Angie is very professional, yet extremely fun and cares deeply for her clients. I know because I have been a loyal client of Angie's since the 90s. Angie pays attention to the detail of her work, all the while connecting with her clients to make then feel welcomed, comfortable and cared for.

She is a master of her profession and her dedication and excitement is apparent immediately. If you are meeting Angie for the first time, you will feel like you have been friends forever by the time your appointment ends. It's no wonder that Angie works mostly by repeat and referral business. Once you see that huge smile when you walk through the door, you know you have landed in a relaxing and safe environment.

Congratulations on your success, Angie! You deserve it!

Pros: Best Waxing and Facials EVER!

Cons: No drawbacks! Angie makes beautifying FUN!

I wanted to surprise my boyfriend by getting a brazilian and I was nervous because my previous experiences have been a little scary (mostly including burns and LOTS of pain). Angie was so nice and professional and made me feel at ease. When she said she was done, I was shocked! It definitely didn't hurt like before and it was over really quickly. I will most definitely return and I recommend it to everyone.

Pros: professionalism, price, AWESOME wax

When I moved to Portland 2 years ago I was really sad to leave my waxer behind. It was hard for me to find someone I liked and trusted to do my brazilian waxing and I was not looking forward to doing it in a new town all over again. I went to a number of salons and things to get waxed here in town and when I met Angie at the Wax Shack I knew I had found the perfect replacement. She is terrific. Very sweet, fast and professional, and so affordable. Honestly, the best wax I've ever had. After Angie was done with me, I had absolutely no left over hairs straggling behind and was smooth for even longer than I had been with previous waxes. I highly recommend Angie. My only wish is that she had a nice building all to herself with a comfy waiting room instead of the one room that she has now. I'll keep my fingers crossed that this is coming soon.

This was my first time getting a bikini wax and I decided to go for a full brazillian. I was immediatley made comfortable and the witty banter made the experience less stressful. You may not believe this but I swear it barely hurt at all!!! She is very quick and well priced (I did my homework) and I'm so glad I found the wax shack. I'll be making this a regular part of my beautification!

This was my first time getting my eyebrows done, and I was very nervous to say the least. I am a red-head, so I was scared that my brows would turn out to be two tiny black lines above my eyes.. but the result was far from that. She made my eyebrows literally PERFECT. They are so beautiful, just the right shape, and not too dark. Angie was great too :) within 5 minutes she makes you feel like you are hanging out with your best friend. It was an amazing experience. I will recommend her to everyone I know, and I can't wait to go back to her for all of my waxing needs!!

Angie gave me my first brazilian, and it went way better than I expected. I'm not gonna say it didn'r hurt- cause it did! But, she is great at distracting you and keeping conversation moving. By the end of it I felt like I'd known her for years and she did a great job. I will recommend her to my friends and plan on going back to her again and again.

I just had my very first Brazilian and I was nervous to say the least. Angie made me feel so comfortable and really put me at ease! She was very quick and is very good at what she does. At first I thought this would be a one time thing, but after seeing how great she is, I've decided to make it a regular thing!

I went to Angie for my first brazilian wax and was terrified. She made me feel at ease and talked to me the whole time. It really was quite painless and I plan on going back to have it done again. I have raved about her to all my friends....she also has the best deal I have seen! I will be going back, for sure!

I live in LA, and I was up here for my wedding and needed to get waxed. I was BLOWN away by the quality of service Angie provides. It was the most painless bikini wax I had ever had, as well as the most reasonably priced. I pay almost double at high end salons in LA for what Angie does, and she's better at it! I'll make visiting Angie a staple of my trips back to Portland. \r

I have been seeing Angie for over 6 years now - starting from when she worked at the Face Place, then Equilibria, and through both of her Wax Shack locations. From the first appointment I have had only positive experiences with Angie. She is gentle and makes otherwise awkward situations totally comfortable! I highly recommend coming here, I know I will never go anywhere else!

Angie is amazing! She is detailed in her work and I always walk away feeling more gorgeous than when I walked in. I've seen her for bikini, lip and brow--always a great experience! Plus, she keeps you laughing throughout the appointment. Everyone I have recommended (and there's been quite a few) has had a wonderful experience too.

Angie is the sweetest person in this industry. I like that she has her new studio and the location is great. No hassle with parking. Her place is very clean and cute!. Best waxer in Portland. Great prices for the services she provides. Angie is a wonderful human person!

Hmmm..how do you lie down with a light in your face and watch everything the technician does?\r
cali from cali is reading too many Cosmo articles....\r
Angie is probably the best & busiest waxer in town!\r
I hate getting waxed but will see Angie when I am feeling brave again!

I've been going to Angie for over 3 years now and am continuously impressed by her professionalism, low prices, and her ability to make the most nervous customers feel comfortable. I would NEVER trust anyone else with my waxing needs, as Angie has proven to do the best job in Portland. I highly recommend her to friends, family, passersby on the street...she is fantastic!

Angie is all about attention to detail. She will ""eye"" your brows until each hair is in the very place it is supposed to be! She knows that when her customers finish a treatment that her work is there for everyone to see. Her good work has to leave a good impression! She is like an artist!

I've been getting waxed by Angie for 7 years now. She's the best waxer I've ever had and i've been getting waxed for 20 years! She is quick, detailed (gets it all!), very professional and friendly, and good at what she does. I've been to probably 5 waxers in Portlands (NW 23rd, downtown, Pearl) other than Angie and they all weren't as good. I love the Wax Shack.

I love the Wax Shack! I've been getting waxes in Honolulu and Los Angeles growing up and Angie is as good as any waxer i've ever had. She is fast, efficient, clean and funny as heck! \r
I'm so glad that I found her. I was referred by friends who swore by her and have gone to her for 5+ years and I'm so glad that I finally gave her a try. All of my other Portland experiences have been mediocre compared to this. Thanks Wax Shack!

I've been going to Angie to get both lip and bikini waxes for the past 2 years. She's great! Quick, thorough and painless. I've had bikini waxes before that really hurt and Angie knows how to make it painless. I highly recommend going to The Wax Shack!
