Berkeley >About Face and Body
waxing for men too. My girlfriend suggested that I try About Face and Body in Oakland for removing that pesky air that grows on the ear lobes. At first, I was hesitant to go into a salon for waxing services. I have been several times. I find the quality of services to be professional, prices competitive and their staff cordial. I am now recommeding their services to my friends.
WORST TAN EVER!. I had a spray tan there, and it was TERRIBLE! I had dark dark brown spots all over my body and my face. They also told me it was okay to wax directly afterward, and my lower legs had all the ugly color ripped off it (so at least my lower legs look somewhat decent, but the rest of my body was all messed up). I can't beleive they still charged me! I left messages to speak to their owner (they said that she was the manager) and she never called, 2 months later. I will not send anyone there, for any services!
5 minute bikini wax--yikes!. I walked in to try this place because I live pretty close. I asked to have a bikini, which they described as a "extended" bikini, because I wanted a little more off. I asked how long it would take, and they said 5 minutes. I asked again, I thought they were kidding, and they just said "she's really fast." Fast indeed, she was done in two strips and missed A LOT. I was skeptical about the 5 minutes, they were clearly just trying to cram in as many appointments as possible. It definitely wasn't cheap either, considering it takes about 20 minutes less than other places, and they don't touch up after they rip off a strip of wax on each side. I paid the same as I do at places in SF. Don't waste your money (I would say don't waste your time, but that would be too ironic...)
User review by jmae. I have been going here for years for bikini waxing. Compared to the other places I've been (both in the Bay Area and beyond), I've been consistently very happy with the waxing I've received here. While the quality varies from one waxer to the next, almost every time I've gone I've been pleased with the results. I hightly recommend both Dao and Annie. The atmosphere is also calm and relaxing, and the hours are super convenient.
