My first eyelash perm, and certainly not my last! I will be back!
Got a groupon deal for an eyelash perm and tint. Called and made an appointment easily for 4pm on a Saturday. When I came in there weren't many people so I was served quickly. After taking off my eye makeup in the bathroom I was laid down and told not to open my eyes until the procedure was done.
Overall the experience, which lasted for about an hour, was quite comfortable and at several points, I was very close to drifting off. Only toward the end, there was a slight stinging sensation in my eyes. The technician noticed my reaction and promptly yet gently flushed out my eyes with a water soaked cotton pad and the stinging subsided quickly. There were also times when the solutions had a bit of a nasty odor, which the technician attempted to counteract by rubbing some tea tree oil on her hands and hovering them above my nose. I thought that was a thoughtful touch!
The music sounded like something you could meditate to - very Asian spiritual vibe - and was, in my opinion, the perfect volume. Decor reminded me of South-Eastern Asia. Overall the place was clean and brightly lit. All the ladies working there were very sweet and I will definitely consider returning. My lashes look great, especially with mascara!
Great experience overall! Very spa-like, music and all. I was in and out in 30. More importantly, much less painful than regular wax, and my skin feels great -- Akina is amazing.
Was visiting in VA for a few days and decided to treat myself to a sugaring treatment. I picked this spa because of the good reviews I read on Yelp.
Their customer service is superb. They answer every question you may have, which is important because I have never had the experience of a sugaring treatment before. I must admit I was apprehensive at first, but the professional staff put all my fears to ease.
I have a high pain tolerance, but I must say, the process hurt less than I expected. They mentioned they use their own sugar formula, and while I am not sure how that compares to other spa sugaring treatments, it certainly added bonus points for me. I am a fan of places that use their own, developed products.
Following the procedure, I was told to give the pores time to close. That means no beach and no excessive use of hot water!
While I am not from the area, local shopping trips proved that things were a litter higher than usual in comparison to my hometown and home state. While I cannot compare them to their local competitors, I can say that I found them to be reasonable and the amount I paid was well worth the quality.
The next time I visit VA, I will plan to visit here as well!
Everyone who works here is always friendly and does a great job. Buying a package, paying in advance for 3 services seems to be the best deal.
Also tip to some customers... DO NOT BRING YOUR WILD @&$ KIDS and let them run around screaming in a spa that is supposed to be tranquil and relaxing! RUDE.
While you wait, they have several massage chairs, peaceful relaxing music playing, a station for cold water or hot tea. Love this place!
Need I say more? You saw me hit 5 stars! I think the other Yelpers really hit the nail on the head here because there's a clear reason why this place has a near 5 stars.
I've gone to this spa several times and I've never been disappointed and in fact, I don't mind the drive despite it being far from where I live. I love the decorations and the customer service is really top notch. The women here are so friendly and they explain the entire process from waxing to massages or even facials. If it's your first time, let's say getting waxed, don't be afraid. The women are very respectful and will cater to you and your pain tolerance. The sugar they use is actually their own recipe and since I've gotten sugared in several placed before, I find their consistency to be the best. it's tacky enough to remove the hairs but it doesn't leave tid-bits which hurt when they pull! I have high pain tolerance so I might not be doing justice to the women reading this going, "oh wonderful well. I guess it's painless due to the formula". The process for Brazilian only takes around 20 to 30 minutes unless you want to take breaks and want only small portions at a time. What can I say, beauty is pain ladies! My suggestion is that you take advil prior this procedure if you can't handle lots of pain and not to go swimming or the beach for the next 2 days and allow the pores to close.
I also want to address their pricing. Despite their location being in Vienna where everything is hiked up, they remain fairly low and constantly have promotions going on.
I'm very happy with the eyelashes, it's just the first day after they've done them for me, so I can't tell how long they'll stay, but they look great! Ladies that work there are super sweet and will take good care of you. The lady that did my eyelashes was making sure I feel comfortable, asked me what kind of eyelashes do I want (doll eye, cat eye, what length etc), gave me blanket while I was laying down (which was comfortable, since I had dress on, she gave me brush to brush lashes (before I went to one place where they didn't give it to me). It's definitely a place I can highly recommend!
It was a great experience here for my first ever Brazilian. I was tired of shaving and researched all the ways to wax...hard wax and surgaring...for a better solution. And I found it at Sugaring House with Akina. I picked the spa based on the Yelp reviews.
She is a professional, very skilled and had me relaxing right away with her gentle manner. There was really no pain, just an occasional pinching sensation or two as she quickly and efficiently removed the hair. She even suggested a subtle design change by doing a bit of trimming. Superb service all the way. Nice decor, very clean spa and great people. This is my "go to" spa for sugaring........excellent all around.
I've been in to see Rina for sugaring services on my back several times and am always pleased with the result. She's thorough, knowledgeable and professional. The rest of the staff are welcoming and very polite. The rooms are clean and the prices are reasonable.
Have been here about 5-6 times already, I usually go to Rina for my eyelash extensions, she does SUCH a great job considering I have a patch of no eyelashes on one of my eyes. I recently went with Jessica who is ALSOO amazing! I highly recommend these two for eyelash extensions! They are quick, do an AMAZING job and make sure you leave loving your lashes!
I haven't been here in years, but I went back to get a full set of mink lash extensions, and couldn't be happier. CC talked with me before hand to make sure she understand what I wanted. I've had extensions before, so I pretty much knew what I wanted, but explaining things can be tough. She did a great job. I love my lashes and love ok forward to going back. Highly recommended.
Excellent and professional. I had eyelashes permed and tinted. My last visit elsewhere was awful. CC took her time and they look so natural as opposed to the last place I walked out of with lashes looking like they were spray painted. I will definitely be returning to the Sugaring House.
Service for my eyelash tint and perm was great! Music was relaxing, application was gentle. The ladies working here are very sweet. Would recommend.
