Recommended to me by a coworker for (her words) the best brazilian bikini wax in the city.

The verdict ?

Cute place, wonderful person, cheap prices ($35 for a brazilian!), numbing liquid before the deed is done (very cool), really calming cooling lotion after (even cooler (lol)), nice thorough job, and skin stuff I bought that have helped my ingrowns after one week. This one's a keeper. Going to try a facial next - I hear she's a skin care goddess.

I go to Daniela for waxing more than anything else, but I did have an occasion to finally get a facial from her. She's been telling me about them and her skin care for years, but I just never got a chance. Finally, I had a sudden day off and figured why not. OMG ! I've had facials before, I used to go every two months before I went back to school, and have been using various brands in my skin care routine. First of all, not only was it one of the most relaxing facials ever, there's no sales pressure, just pretty music, wonderful smells, etc. but she taught me so much about my skin! I've been breaking out on and off for years and was never told by any facialist as much as Daniela told me about products, ingredients, pores, and what about what I was using that may be causing my problems. Actually, even before I had a facial with her, she told me that the kind of makeup I was using might be causeing breakouts on my jawline, without pushing me to buy her product. A lot of the breakout went away just by not using that kind of makeup anymore. She also gave me generous samples of her products so I could try them, and I saw results right away. What I also like is that that she will actually recommend cheaper products if you're on a budget, telling you where is the best place to spend your money (like sunscreen and lotion) and where you can save a little until you can afford to get her stuff, which isn't that expensive actually, but hey, I'm a student. Now that's integrity! I'm slowly getting more and more of her products as I run out of my cheap stuff and my skin has never looked better.

She is quick and thorough. Perfect for the working woman. Will work with you to fit you in to her schedule and makes it worth your while! Her waxing is amazing and her products are divine! She offers advice freely and never makes you feel like you need to buy. Also, in my opinion, her prices are the best in town and she has a very loyal following which speaks well to her services. Don't get nervous if you leave her a message asking for an appointment. She always calls back promptly! Definitely go here!

Love her place, such a quiet cute intimate spa, very warm and welcoming.

Her wax is superb- almost no pains!!!!! and so quickly!
The best I ever had!

Facial is so good! the products Daniela is using are great, the treatment is very deep. I feel my face look younger and streched after every facial!

I have been going to Daniela for years now, and each time I see her I'm more pleased than the previous visit. Her inviting manor sets you at ease as soon as you walk into her cozy salon and if she hasn't made macaroons, there's always tea and wine to tempt your palate. My skin has made a dramatic improvement since I began using her products 3 months ago, and now I can't imagine using anything else. Her pricing is more than reasonable considering the all-star treatment you receive in her care. My first waxing experiences elsewhere were horrific. Most of the women were stand-offish and made an already uncomfortable situation worse. However, Daniela's ability to keep you relaxed while performing tricky procedures, in the most intimate of places, makes me return again and again. About 8 months ago, I was going through a difficult financial stretch and was unable to treat myself to the luxury of waxing. Daniela noticed my absence from her books and gave me a call. As we played catch-up, and I filled her in on my past few months, she was moved by my hardship and invited me in for a facial on the house. "It sounds like you need someone to do something nice for you. Please, let me give you a facial!" That's a direct quote. I often joke with Daniela about becoming rich and famous and hiring her as my personal aesthetician. I recommend that before that happens, you see for yourself what the hype is all about. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: comfort level, location

Pros: so good, clean, and amazing

Cons: none

Daniela is AWSOME! Aside from being one of the most positive people I've ever met, she's knowledgeable, fast, effecient, and yes, CLEAN! I've been waxing for 10 years now and I've been going to Daniela's for the last 3. Even if she were not the person she is, I'd still never go anywhere else. I used to go every 6 weeks to expensive fancy places, and have the same growth each time (2 weeks of almost no hair, then 4 weeks of hair), and the growth amount never really changed. Then I want to Daniela's on the recommendation of a friend and she explained why every 3-4 weeks is better (too long to explain here). I started to notice less growth each time after about 5 appointments, which means at any time I never have most of my hair present. I don't think there's anything wrong with her pointing out that that's why she keeps her prices reasonable. In fact, she actually had the integrity to tell me when I was ready to come every 5 weeks because there was so little hair each time! The hair never seemed to be broken off, and even my ingrowns (which were the BAIN of my exisitence) started to go away after waxing with Daniela! Also, where else do you have someone who not only sanitizes her hands before each person, but also sanitizes the skin of the entire bikini area with an alcohol-based _numbing_ liquid? She uses a powder before waxing, too, which really makes a difference in the pain and the usual irritation, and follows the waxing with a lotion that is just to DIE for! Daniela makes it herself! It's so soothing and cooling (it feels like there's mint there, but it smells like there's probably tea tree and lavender, too), I never leave all red like I used to, never bumpy or with the painfull irritation I used to just accept as par for the course. As for cleanliness? I don't know what the other reviewer was talking about, I've never had a problem there, and the place looks totally fine to me. I'd say think twice before going anywhere else!!

Pros: Great value with lasting results and no more ingrowns!

Cons: Parking can be kind of dicey, so try to get there at least 5-10 min. sooner

Sorry to say but I gave this spa more than one chance and I'd never return. I only had waxing services there and within a week my hair was growing back. This does not happen when I've waxed at upscale spas such as Elizabeth Arden............my hair starts to grow back in 3 weeks. The wax used at the better know spas is higher quality and the hair is pulled out from the root not broken off at the skin surfice like it appeared to happen more than once with Daniela.

Another negative is the poor level of cleanliness of the spa, bed you lay on and the work area/tools she uses. She doesn't wear gloves when waxing (your privates) and I developed bumps that I thought were ingrown hairs but my dermo. said were most likely caused from bacteria during waxing. Not cool!
Wouldn't you wear gloves when in contact with a stranger there?

The owner was quick to point out that her prices were lower than most spas but I quickly returned to Elizabeth Arden where I've waxed the last 6 years and only need the service once a month vs. twice a month at Daniela's. In the end you'll spend more with the many trips you'll have to make to Daniela's.
