I went to Pia because of their waxing services. I have been going for almost 2 years for bikini wax. I have sensitive skin and the ladies are very friendly and helpful for me to get waxing done. The prices for waxing are on their site and very reasonable for a bikini wax - 40.00. I like that it's a very nice atmosphere and they make you feel 100% welcome.
The estheticians at Pia's Waxing Studio in St. Pete are the best in the area! I tried different places for waxing until I discovered the Pia diffference. Regardless of which Pia's location you go to, and I have been to two of their four locations (South Tampa and St. Pete), or which esthetician you see (Pia, Nayla, Ashley, Ana) you are guaranteed to receive the best service. The friendly and professional service will keep you coming back. The St. Pete location just recently expanded and they added more services to their menu
I have been going to Pia's for about 6 yrs now. They have amazing customer service and are extremely professional. I have never had a bad experience there. Pia will take of any concerns that one does have. She is genuine just like her staff. Gina and Megan are my two fave receptionist they are so kind and understanding. Its clean they do not double dip like some places. Try this place out, you will not be sorry.
I'm not a tiny girl by any means and everyone from the receptionist to the person who performed my services were EXTREMELY professional and courteous. They were out of the ""no scream cream"" and they allowed me to use a sample bottle..\r
After expressing my concerns to those who could help, they took care of me.\r
Honestly, the pain of the bikini wax was less than the upper lip and eyebrow waxing! I feel like a big baby for being scared.\r
If you're even the slightest bit interested in the bikini waxing, go and give it a try. You're not committed to the service you ask for and if you want to start with a little then ask for more, they'll accommodate you.\r
I was totally impressed!!! TOTALLY!
Pros: Professionalism, Fast Service, Awesome Staff
Cons: Can't think of any!
After seeing all the reviews, I called for a same-day evening appointment (and actually got one). The spa itself is beautiful, with hardwood floors, soothing greens, calming music, and the smell was instantly relaxing.
When I arrived, I was greeted immediately, and the receptionist was friendly and personable. I was early, so I sat in the ""green room"" and only waited a few minutes (being have been offered sangria or water). The masseuse was friendly and warm--in fact, no one at this spa had any of that air of importance or pretense that you find at so many spas.
I only gave it four stars simply because I haven't tried the other services yet and can't be positive they'll be a fabulous as the massage. But checking by the back-to-back appointments going in and out the door, clearly the waxes are great and so is everything else!
After being to MANY spas over the years, Orit was hands-down one of the best. I'm so glad I found this place!!!
Pros: Beautiful, calming environment; great appointment
Ive been going to Pia for almost a year, and their staff is amazing! I go ONLY for their Bare Wax Treatment, and it is amazing! They are fast, and so friendly. They make the visit relaxing and stress free. I have been a customer of Nyla and Michelle, and both are awsome! Totally recommend first time waxers to go to PIA!!
Pros: Best waxers!
I went into Pia's yesterday for an eyebrow wax and completely bare bikini wax and Ericca did such an amazing job. She was fast, friendly, and listened to what I asked for. I would recommend her 100 times over to anyone looking for a wax in Tampa. The only con is how hard it is to get an appointment there simply because they hardly answer the phone, at least when I call. I don't have a lot of time to repeatedly call a place so it took me a few days calling 1-2 times a day, during their operating hours, until someone answered the phone and took my appointment down. Still worth it for a great wax!
Pros: Professional, quick, not as painful as others
Cons: Never answer phone at front desk
This has become my hometown spa! I go there for all of my waxing needs- Errica is amazing and fast. Actually, I have been to a few of the ladies to get waxed and I have to say they are ALL Great!\r
Their massage therapist is Awesome too- she even knew I got migraines without me telling her and has helped me through massage diminish my migraines.\r
Pia Esthetics- Day Spa also has a great selection of products that I have become hooked on like Dermalogica & GLOminerals!\r
This place is warm, friendly, not pushy, professional and very accomodating.\r
I advise anyone looking for a great day spa to check this salon out! Remember you pay for what you get and if you want the BEST then go to Pia Esthetics- Day Spa.
The absolute BEST. Showed up on wrong day. Made room for me. Saw Michelle. She's professional, friendly, and made the whole experience wonderful. I've had a bikini wax before, but Michelle made my first BRAZILIAN painless. GO TO PIA'S, NOW!!!!!!
Pros: Very clean, warm, and friendly atmosphere.
Today was my first time waxing. I loved it. Ericca was awesome. She made me feel comfortable and was super nice. She was very fast and informative. The wax itself was not as painful as I thought. It hurt more the further in she went. I had read the reviews on here before I made an appoitment, and believe every word of it. Pia is the best in town. I wouldn't go anywhere else. \r
Leslie at the front desk was extremly helpfull and kind. She had recommended this no scream cream which helped me on my first visit. I can't wait to go back again in four weeks. \r
Thank you to all the other reviews that helped me find the best place in town.
Pros: Best place
Cons: The parking lot needs some work, It is very bumpy.
I've been going to Pia for about two years now and still never run out of nice things to say. I recently moved from South Tampa to St. Petersburg and still make the drive because you just can't beat the service anywhere. Despite the many many clients they all must see daily, the estheticians I've seen always remember even the minute details about my life, etc. making you feel welcome and way more comfortable during things like a bikini wax. Their pumpkin facial is also to die for!
Pia's is the best! I started going here 3 years ago and have never looked for another wax place. I love them because they are quick and very detailed. If my appt's at 1pm, then at 1pm they take me back. And a big plus is that they make sure every hair is gone, which I love because if I'm paying to get a wax, I dont want to go home and finish the job myself. Definately the best in Tampa!
I actually found Pia here on City Search about 5 years ago and haven't been to another spa since - this is truly THE BEST place for waxing & spa services in the Tampa Bay area!!!
I have been going to Pia's for about six months for waxing (brazilian) and eyebrow shaping and every time I am impressed withe their services. Every person I have seen there has been very well-trained and efficient, keeping my time doing ""maintenance"" to a minimum ;-). The facilities are cozy and it is conveniently located just off the east-west expressway.
Pros: waxing couldn't be easier or faster or better done
Cons: none I can think of
I'm always skeptical about seeking out a new location for waxing. However, after recently moving to the area I have been exceptionally pleased with the services at Pia's salon. The staff is very cordial and professional, and the salon is welcoming, and clean. Both the eyebrow waxing and brazilian waxing was fantastic; very quick, and discreet. I would recommend Pia's to everyone!
Pros: Location, warm environment, professional staff
I have been going to Pia's for over a year from North Tampa for the eyelash extensions. They are wonderful!!! They look so natural and I love not having to wear mascara all the time. No one knows that they are extensions. All I hear is that I have ""beautiful eyes"". I have also had the microderm several times and love that as well. I know that I will continue to go back time and time again to Pia's for excellent products and service.
Cons: Parking lot; needs to be smoothed out a bit.
I have been to many of the spas in the Tampa Bay area, and Pia Esthetics surpasses all of them on many levels. Their staff is highly trained-- so much that I do not have a favorite waxer per se. They all do a wonderful job, and more importantly, they are all sweet, personable, and they all put you at ease. I have sent 2 friends there for their first Brazilian waxes and they have both LOVED the results and have decided to continue the service and go back every 4 weeks. The pedicures are awesome and the atmosphere is so convivial that you end up not wanting to leave. You can easily make friends with the staff, who also go out of their way to accommodate you, your friends, your needs, whatever. Every time I go to Pia, I am newly surprised by the service. DON'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!!!
I have gone to Pia's for several of their services...mani, pedi, facial, massage and microderm. i have had a great experience everytime. The staff is wonderful. Their customer service is top notch.
I drive from Pinellas county over to South Tampa once/6 weeks simply to go to Pia Esthetics. The estheticians are extremely professional and make you feel comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. I get both eye-brow waxing and a Brazilian wax every 5 - 6 weeks and would not go anywhere else. They do a great job while making the treatment as quick and painless as possible. I highly recommend Pia Esthetics to all!
I highly recommend Pia's for their pedicures. I made an appointment in December and have been going back since....my feet are in heaven after an hour session with Paola!
Pia is a great spa! They handle all of their transactions in a very professional manner. The staff is not only friendly, but helpful as well. Even though there was an issue with my appointment, they quickly accomodated me, and really tried to investigate the reason the appointment issue occured. They never questioned me, and rectified the issue with true concern and professionalism! The service was great, my appointment was efficient, and I was thoroughly satisfied with my results. I would highly recommend this establishment!
This is the best place in the Tampa Bay area for waxing of any kind. I tried multiple other spas/salons and no one compared. The owner- Pia is incredibly accomadating and makes any experience relaxing and fun.\r
There is always great customer service and a nice relaxing waiting area. There are also a lot of fun products to brouse.
Pia Spa is a beatiful place in South Tampa, if you want to get great service, friendly staff with a lot of profesionalism, this is the place to come. I had been going to Pia for over 4 yrs, and I love it!
I've been going to Pia's for several years and I must say, I love the customer service, attention to detail and sterilization provided with every service! It's easy to understand why her business has such a GREAT reputation in the Tampa Bay Area! I highly recommend Pia Esthetics to anyone who wants a comfort, confidential and professional experience!!!!
Pros: Always consistent with end results!!
The services are fabulous and never a disappointment ... that is, if they keep the appointment. I have been bumped and re-bumped numerous times, and once even confirmed, showed up, and was left to wait only to be told the (other) massage therapist ""didn't know she had a client today"". I keep going back because my usual massage therapist is THE best, but they just don't seem to be able to run the business professionally. Pia is wonderful and Orit is 5++ stars, but the receptionists bring it down to barely a 3. They're well worth it if you're extremely patient and flexible (but don't expect the same courtesy from them).
I was very pleased!!!!! th e staff is very friendly and they did exactly what I wanted........will go back any time....
Pros: great service
I have been the salon a few time and each experience is different. This last time was my last. the girls who worked on me were stiff and short, and not even the receptionist was friendly. Left feeling bad.
Pros: its a convenient location and cute salon
Cons: It is too expensive and there are alot of cute salons
I've been going to Pia Esthetics for the past year for Brazilian waxing. The girls have always been professional and do a great job. They are efficient and really know what they are doing.\r
The only problem was that I was driving about 2 hours to get there. This summer I decided to try a local place in Ft Myers, where I live- BIG MISTAKE! The lady in Ft Myers who waxed me did a terrible job and I regretted it. Now, I will always drive the 2 hours to get to Pia. It is well worth the trip!
Pros: knowledgeable and friendly staff
Cons: small parking lot
I came here with my girlfriend to have a spa pedicure. I had Emmy, she takes great care of you and always has a smile on her face. My girlfriend and I were both impressed. This was my first time for a spa pedicure, but I would have to say after this experience it probably will not be my last. Go see emmy!
Pros: friendly staff
Cons: parking space
I have been going to Pia's for waxing for well over a year. Every experience has been very professional and pleasant. I was nervous the first time I had a Brazilian wax, but they made me feel very comfortable and I have been back many times since. I even drive from Brooksville to Tampa and now have 2 friends who began getting waxed, and love her place as much as I do. My only complaint is that I wish it was closer, but it's well worth it to go there.
I had my first bikini wax ever at this place. I was very nervous was even late to my appointment due to unforseen circumstances and they were so accomodating and the atmosphere was so relaxing and inviting. I had the ""Hollywood Wax"" and I loved it. I will definitely be going back. I would recommend this place to all women.
If you are looking for a waxing experience in an exceptional environment...then Pia's is the destination for you! Not only was it a professional and skilled job....it was a my first visit to Pia's, so I was unsure of what to expect....Taking my daughter's advice, I accepted the lovely glass of wine and assended the vintage staircase to the freshly painted room overlooking Bay to Bay Blvd. Pia was not only informative and had a way of making me feel at ease... she was humorous and fun to get to know. Within my 40 minute stay, I felt as if I had aquired a new daughter and friend! Thanks Pia....you are without a doubt, an asset to this community!
Pros: The entire experience gets a thumbs up!
Going to Pia Salon is always a pleasure. From the minute you walk in the door, you are greeted with professional and friendly service. I moved to South Tampa from New York City and have tried other salon for waxing and was never satisfied until I went to Pia. I can say that their services are just as good or better the the top salons in New York.
Pros: Atmosphere, Service, Friendly and Professional
I've gone to other places for brazilian waxes in Tampa and these guys by far know what they're doing... excellent customer service, beautiful and relaxing environment!
Pros: great service and relaxing ambience
Wow. I've had a couple of Brazilian waxes elsewhere, but Pia's is by far the best! I'll be back every month to get just this smooth!
Pros: Professional staff
Cons: None. Zero. Nada.
Pia's is fantastic, I had my first bikini waxing experience at Pia's and I was soo nervous but the wonderful staff put me at ease. I highly recommend it!
Had my first prenatal massage here while 8 months pregnant. Helped to reduce a lot of my aches and pains associated with the pregnancy.
Pros: prenatal massage
Cons: unpaved parking
I've had facials before, but had my first microderm at Pia's and I am extremely pleased. My skin is radiant and my blemishes are noticably lighter. The staff are very courteous and professional, and the atmosphere is soothing. Ana made me feel very comfortable and was responsive to my needs. No pressure to buy anything, but what I did get is working out really well! I will be a regular.
Pros: convenient location & hours
Avoid this spa. Bad atmosphere, dirty towels and linens. Just a real waste of time and money.\r
It was not a good experience.
Cons: Bad service, not clean.
The waxing professional at Pia Esthetics Day Spa really put me at ease, and did a wonderful job! I didn't have to bother with the hassles of shaving throughout my whole honeymoon, and that's priceless! They are sanitary, helpful for skin care tips afterward, and there was never any sales pressure! I recommend Pia's for anyone looking for a reliable place to get an efficient, professional wax.
Pia's is the best place to go for eyebrow shaping and customer service! The place is clean, the people are nice and everyone is very friendly. I would highly recommend Pia's!!
This place is my sanctuary in the city. I love going for a relaxing wax, facial, and massage. I highly recommend this place over any other salons in the city.
Pros: Pia offers late appointment for working people
Cons: Have not found any yet :)
I have always had wonderful experiences at Pia Esthetics. Pia is always so professional and does an excellent job waxing everything from my eyebrows downward. I would highly\r
Pros: atmosphere, service, website.
Moving to Tampa was not easy for many reasons. One of the hardest things in my relocation process was to find a Spa in this town that goes beyond the usual boring stuff. I visited many in south tampa.. Basically the same old stuff, just different name. I think Pia Esthetics is the exception to the rules. I loved that place from the moment I stepped in. I've got a brazilian wax by Pia, and... I don't miss my spa in NY anymore! She is the most experienced and caring professional I've seen. Facial Treatments are amazing too.. I think a whole new experience. The overall spa experiencie was superior in all aspects... If you're looking for a truly different experience, dont waste time in other places. I wish I would find out about pia's sooner.
My first trip out there, I had a Chocolate massage scheduled. Turns out I'm not an ideal candidate for this type of treatment, ... but the masseuse gladly switched gears and gave me a Deep Tissue instead, which was wonderful. Another time went for a classic manicure and waited about 45 minutes past the scheduled appt time only to be rushed thru my service. The hand massage lasted about 15 seconds. I expressed disappointment as I was checking out and later that eve, a mgr called to let me know they were crediting me $25.
I have been a client of Pia Esthetics since my wedding. The employees are very professional and they make every exprience a pleasure!
i love the atmosphere, i love the professionalism, & i love the services. i have had nothing but great results here. the brazilian waxes are great, & the eyelash extensions are beautiful. i recommend pia esthetics to anyone with skincare needs. oh and the hours are sooo convenient.
A friend told me about Pia's a while back and I've never looked back. I drive all the way from St. Pete to visit this great place! Everyone there is so friendly, knowledgeable and always going out of their way to make you feel special. I highly recommend this place to everyone and anyone!
Pros: Knowledgeable, Friendly, Skillful
