I have been coming to South Beach Body Waxing for about 3 years now. I can honestly say this place is amazing, efficitent, and above all very proffesional. They are warm, friendly, and make my waxing experiences extremely comfortable. To the person badmouthing the staff, you couldnt be more wrong. From the front desk, to the waxers, to the nail techs, I have never in my three years of coming, heard anybody badmouth a coworker! Conversation is kept to a minimum unless its "have a great weekend!"
The wax they use is great for sensitive skin also, its not as harsh as the honey wax they offer in some salons. OUCH!
If you are in the South Beach area, and need a good wax or manicure, i hands down recommend this salon!
I really dont like when I go to a place and I have to listen the employees talking bad about the other ppl that work with them, the other day I was in this place and Sandra she is from Colombia start talking about her boss Shirley this lady Shirley is the manager and always has a long face when she is working at the front desk she seems to always have a problem when she is working but with me she always nice, so I went to get a service and I have to listen Sandra talking about Shirley and the bad person that she is with her she also was telling me about a lady that is call Lena that she is working in the South Miami Waxing she was telling me that Lean is a Bi... and a Kiss a.. PERSON i really dont like all that.....I just went to get a service not to listen sh.......
SoBe Body Wax is a great place for waxing. Easy to get an appointment. Nancy is a great waxer, very friendly and easy to work with.
Pros: Easy access
I had a great experience with Carolina! She not only did a great job but she was a delight!
But also, whatever wax they use is fabulous! It has been over a month and barely any hair has grown back! I wish I lived in Miami to get my next wax done and with Carolina of course.
I highly recommend this waxing spa!
I will be back!
*P.S. Congrats Carolina on your nuptials! I hope you are in wedding bliss!
Pros: Carolina and the longest lasting wax ever!
Cons: Non friendly receptionist
I need to FILE A COMPLAIN To The Home of The Famous Brazilian Bikini & Playboy Bikini as Evelyn treated me totally unrespectfully, she yelled at me, would shut me up and not let me explain I was in lots of pain after my waxing.
I laid there as the technician applied the three coats of was on the same location (Evelyn), each time pulling off the wax with a cloth strip(legs). I assumed the salon knew exactly what they were doing so even though I had reservations about allowing her to continue applying wax, I just laid there and didn't speak up. I had never been burned before so I wasn't sure exactly what was normal and what could cause a burn. I tried explaining to Evelyn I was hurt and she was very rude and agressive. What had begun as an attempt to relax and be pampered turned into a salon nightmare. I had been burned on my Famous Brazilian Bikini waxing area (for Thanksgiving weekend) I was not only in a lot of pain but I was also treated unrespectfuly by Evelyn.
Pros: I always love that place until I meet her....
I like this place bcuz I have a great person that wax me, her name is Carolina she is so sweet!! The best waxer that I have in years!!
Pros: Waxer Carolina
Cons: Waxer Carolina
After reading the previous reviews I was somewhat afraid to try this place! However it was 1 block from my hotel and the price was great! I was met w/ good customer service! The ONLY bad thing was that I got a bikini wax (which was painless and I was a 1st timer!) and they did not give me a cover-up, that was uncomfortable to say the lease. Other than that I had a pleasent experience. Fast service and reasonable price! I recommend this place! Also it was NOT dirty at all! I must have went on a good day or these other people expect too much for the cheapest price in town! Try it, it's not bad as these people make it out to be!
im from nyc and travelled to miami over the weekend...i didnt have a chance to get beauty treatments before the trip so i decided to book an appt at this place..and OMG LOVED IT! wax and nails were perfection. i just wish people in nyc would take their time with their service just like the wonderful people at this place...will def go again when i go back to miami! thank you for an amazing treatment.
I live in Miami and i am not exagerating i tried maybe 10 different places all over the Dade County... And by far the best is SOUTH BEACH Body waxing.. not only the prices are great (about the lowest at the same level of service) but the people there are so nice. I actually just called and made a last minute appointment and they were willing to help me out! (since im going on and unexpected trip). I have seen maybe 3 ladies from there and they have all been awesome..
i wont lie it does hurt a bit,... but its sooo quick!
anyhow i will be there today AGAIN... :)
I got underarm, eyebrow, upper lip, 1/2 leg, and brazilian. I have been to many wax places and they are fast and cheap here. They use cold wax for sensitive skin (lip, under arm, eyebrow, brazilian). cold wax is supreme. I think she got every hair too. Roxana was my favorite. Not the best ambiance. It is a bit of a wax factory. Small waxing rooms, but that didn't bother me. Professional staff. Never felt uncomfortable about getting my unmentionable fully waxed. I also got a couple of mani/pedi's here. They did a great job, but it was very time consuming. And they don't have the fancy massage chairs for your pedicures.
Pros: quick, cheap, efficient, and skilled
Cons: Not the fanciest of atmospheres.
I don't understand how this place got any good reviews. I went to their South Beach store. As i walked in to get serviced, I noticed waxing room was filthy. That could have been ok, if the service was good, but got my back and chest waxed, and they burn my skin and hurt as much as the korean place I go In NY. I've heard a lot about waxing in South Florida, not impressed.
Cons: need to clean up. Wax was too hot and painful
I've been waxed in San Diego, San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, and a few places in between. Sometimes it's supposed to be a "spa" sort of pampering experience, but getting hair ripped from one's neck, back, and shoulders is not exactly relaxing. Evelina, who did my waxing, said, "Well, we all have to suffer for beauty."
Except she didn't make me suffer. It was quick, efficient, professional, measured, symmetric, and as painless as possible. Most notably, they have a hard wax used without strips that was used for the more tender areas. (I'm speaking of my neck but am told it is also used for Brazilian/groin waxing.)
It wasn't hoity-toity or pretentious. It was clean, tidy, and relaxing, and all of this was underscored by competence. (Because they only do waxing, and waxing of literally every part of the body from hairy toes to taints to temples, I didn't feel as if I were reinventing the wheel when I made requests.)
Regarding the ambience, each little suite/alcove has a little sliding door, and a half dozen estheticians are working at any given moment. When you phone, they'll ask if you have a preference, but I'm guessing everyone is just fine.
If only I they had one where I lived. Would love to bring my girlfriend, too.
I HAVE COME FROM SPAIN, AND I HAVE WAXED HERE IN MIAMI IN SEVERAL PLACES, I NEED TO TELL EVERYONE THAT I AM VERY PICKY AND I HAVE TRIED OTHER WAXING PLACES AND I WAS NOT IMPRESSED.
BUT I HAVE FOUND SOUTH BEACH BODY WAXING.I DECIDED TO TRY THEM. WHAT A DIFFRENCE THEY ARE TRULEY THE BEST I HAVE FOUND IN MIAMI .
RECEPTIONIST VERY NICE AND THE PROFFESIONAL LADIES ARE VERY HYGENIC AND I DID NOT FEEL PAIN WHEN WAXING.. MOST IMPORTANT THE PLACE IS VERY CLEAN, I ALSO HAD TIME TO DO MY NAILS WHICH I LOVED IT WAS RELAXING I FELT LIKE I WAS IN BALI IT WAS SO SOOTHING ENVIROMENT. VERY EUROPEAN.
I AM LUCKY I FOUND SUCH A GREAT PLACE .
Pros: BRAVO WAXING PLACE
I would like to add one more thing to the lady who "claims" that her phone was stolen...I am a law student and I happen to know that your posting where you allege that Adriana "stole" your phone is actually Defamation (In law, defamation is the communication of a statement that makes a false claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may harm the reputation of an individual, business, product, group, government or nation) and the only defense would be truth but you obviously cannot prove that...You should probably think about that next time.
Pros: Friendly and Professional Staff, Clean, Great Value!
The name is Roya, I live in NY and every time I come down on vacation I go and get waxed at SBBW. The girls there are amazing and they make me feel at home. My waxer Adriana is one of the best out there. She does a great job! =) ?.reading the comment below about the cell phone situation made me a bit unhappy, you cannot blame anyone else for being forgetful. If that cell phone really meant that much to you should?ve put it in your purse or pocket. Regardless, the girls there are not thieves. I have left my shades before and came back for them after? they held it for me at the front desk. Anyhoo? the service is absolutely WONDERFUL!!!! I wouldn?t have it any other way. The receptionists are such great girls and always greet everyone with a smile. So my advice to the cell phone girl, don?t write things that are UNTRUE just because you loosing your phone made you UNHAPPY, no need to lie or degrade others.
SBBW lover, Roya =)
Pros: excellent staff, nice enviroment =)
Cons: I dont live in miami.. =(
I HAVE BEEN COMING TO BODY WAXING CO.. FOR FIVE YEARS, I WORK WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS THE CLEANEST PLACE !!! I GO TO LOTS OF SALONS AND I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS PLACE TO EVERY ONE... THANKS GIRLS FOR ALWAYS KEEPING ME HAIR FREE!!!! I NOTICED WHAT ANOTHER USER SAID AND I NOW THAT BWC DOES NOT DOUBLE DIP I GO THERE TO WAX AND DO MY NAILS THIS PLACE IS SUPER HYGENIC!!
GREAT PRICES FOR ANY BUDGET
Pros: HYGENIC AND PAIN FREE
Due to my job i am costantly traveling all over the world, and living in Brazil many years I have experienced excellent waxing. But when I came for business to Miami I decided to try South Beach Body Waxing and let me tell you!! They are Truley Professional and extremely hygenic!! Shirley the front desk person was very polite and friendly. Although i did not have an appointment she got me in. I was IMPRESSED !!! PAINLESS WAXING !! they truley left me hair free.
Pros: Hygenic , Great Waxers
I usually dont review things online, but since the reason I chose to go to SBBW was the other good user reviews, I decided I should add my 2 cents. I was not impressed with anything at SBBW. The Saturday receptionist was extremely rude and unfriendly. Personally, I think that is the last thing you need when youre about to bear your privates to a stranger. The bikini wax I had was not great either. I must say it was not all that painful, but it was also far from thorough. 1) I still have hair left that I will have to remove myself. 2) She did not trim the remaining hair at all. 3) She did not use any lotion, cream, gel to prevent irritation. i just think that these are simple things that you should offer when the name of your salon implies that you specialize in the city's body waxing. The price seemed reasonable, but you get what you pay for (if even).
Pros: not too painful, quick service
Cons: rude employee, unthorough service
SB Body Waxing ( South Miami location ) is the best in town. I've been waxing for years and I've always tredded the experience until I met MONICA...she rocks! The pain is minimal and what normally takes others at least 1 hour for full legs and bikini, it takes her 30 min. She's amazing! The staff is pleasant, especially the owner, Sandy. Appointments are easy to come by. Reasonably priced and great service!
Pros: Service, customer service, easy to get appointments
I reccomend bwc to everyone i am always in a hurry and they take care of my needs quickly . There wax is the best and service there prices are excellent and i must say that i feel no pain with there waxers there all trained in a special way which makes it painless. they get my thumbs up
Pros: service, wax, quick
