Amazing natural light, they never miss a hair! – I've been going to WoWo for 3 years now...and I live in Brickell! I make the effort to go there because the lighting in the place is great...you can't miss a hair, and the staff always makes me feel comfortable. Also it's very clean! I highly recommend it!
THE BEST!!!!!! – I went there to get a gel mani and a pedicure MARIA is the BEST. she is the only person in the WHOLE WORLD that I would let do my mani and pedi she makes sure EVERYTHING IS PERFECT..... After she is done it's a MASTERPIECE done by the BEST MARIA.....And also the receptions there is very very nice her name is nathile if im not mistakening. I LOVE WAX ON WAX OFF..... KEEP UP THE SUPER DUPER WORK!!!!!!!!
Great Staff, Horrific Owner – I have been going to WoWo for the past couple of years and was an extremely loyal customer until recently. The staff at WoWo is excellent and extremely professional, but I can't say the same for owner.
During my last appointment my esthetician notified me it was her last day at WoWo. I was saddened at first, until I learned that she was going out on her own and would only be a few blocks away. She mentioned that she had notified the owner earlier that same day but had not heard back.
After my wax, I proceeded to get my nails done there and witnessed the most ridiculous spectacle to ever take place at a salon. The owner called angrily requesting to speak to the esthetician that was leaving, while she was in the room with another client. The receptionist notified the owner that the esthetician was with a client at which point the owner began to chew out the receptionist for something she had nothing to do with.
THEN, the owner proceeded to tell the receptionist to call the cops to have the esthetician escorted out. The receptionist refused, as there was nothing the esthetician did wrong that would warrant getting the police involved.
The owner then threatened to fire the receptionist for not doing so. The receptionist begged the esthetician to come out of the room with her client to deal with this fiasco so she wouldn't be put in the middle of this situation. The client then said "would you like me to speak to the owner, and tell her that I'm in the middle getting waxed!" This was all in front of clients in the waiting room!
At this point, things were very heated and the esthetician took the higher road and left the building and apologized to the client that she was in the middle of waxing and to the rest of the clients that witnessed this debacle... for something that she didn't even do wrong. She was nice enough to apologize on the behalf of the owner for all of us having to witness something like this... at least she took the higher road. The owner had called the cops herself already and they showed up just as the esthetician was leaving.
Never have I seen such a display of pettiness from a business owner and just because she was angry that her employee was leaving her business. She should have congratulated her for trying to start her own business. The only person she made look bad after this situation was herself.
During this whole drama I learned that the last time one of her employees had the courtesy to give her two weeks notice, she came to the salon and asked her to leave. The only reason she did not do that this time around was because she was out of town. That is why she resorted to the cops. She even had her own husband call the receptionist and chew her out while she was calling the cops. So absurd and immature if you ask me. After this, I REFUSE to give another penny to a business owner that treats their employee so badly! I used to recommend this salon to everyone I know that gets waxed and now I plan to do the exact opposite.
Clean and friendly – Pros: Clean, quick and the staff is friendly. I've been in here a few times and have no real complaints with the quality, cleanliness or the staff. In fact, just like at Bliss, the esthetician I've always had waxes and then goes at stray hairs with tweezers. Makes for a great, long-lasting wax.
Cons: The Brazilian ($39) isn't a real Brazilian. It's a bikini that goes to your inner thighs. If you want the REAL, totally bare from the waste down, Brazilian you have to pay another $25. For a total of $64, I travel to Bliss (SoBe or Ft. Lauderdale) and get the less painful no-strip waxing ($70) and have a real spa experience with treats and a steam shower. Problem with that is then I'm tempted to have a *total* spa experience...
Thank you for the great compliments!
I just want to clarify the pricing at Wax On Wax Off.
A Brazilian that includes the lips and leaves a landing strip on the top is $31 and a full bikini aka the Barbie bikini is $34. The buttocks strip is optional at an additional $18 totaling $49 for the Brazilian or $52 for a full Barbie.
We also have the strip or non-strip wax - your choice.
Hope to see you soon!
Wax On Wax Off
Wax on Waff Off ROCKS – This place has got it down pat. Experienced techs who go the extra mile to make sure you're absolutely hairless, clean and fun environment, comfortable, and they give you champagne or mimosas! This place is the place to go. PS, even though its in the grove, parking is always available in the parking lot for customers too.
I've fallen in love with Wax On Wax Off! – The owners must have had me in mind when they opened this place. I recently moved to Miami and was in search of the "perfect" waxing spa to replace my old place in New York. I was lucky enough to find this spa after trying just about every other place in Miami.
Wax On Wax Off is so clean and they never even double dip the stick back into the wax like I've seen at other places. I don't have a favorite technician, I think they're both great! Tiely and Jeanne are so fun and sweet not to mention experienced! I never get ingrowns here.
I always enjoy the free glass of champagne and don't mind waiting if I don't have an appointment because it just smells so good in there and I love to people watch through the windows to the parking lot.
Keep up the good work, I'll be in soon for my next "Barbie" bikini wax!
Best Wax, Friendly Staff & Awesome Atmosphere! – I couldn't say enough great things about Wax On Wax Off!
I discovered this place a few months ago when I was going to CVS next door and now it is the only place I trust for my waxing needs. They do a great job on my eyebrows and Brazilian bikini!! It hardly hurts - maybe the free mimosa had something to do with it :)
I have been recommending this place to all my friends and they give my 15% off a service every time one of them comes in. The people that work here are so nice and caring, I don't feel rushed and I never have to wait!
Highly recommend Wax On Wax Off!
WAX ON WAX OFF IS THE ONLY PLACE TO GET WAXED!! – I have been going to Wax On Wax Off since they opened a couple years back, not sure why haven't written a review yet but here it is.
The best reasons to go to WOWO:
1. Peach Points - I earn points for all my services and then I magically get $15 off when I reach enough, awesome!
2. Free Parking - need I say more?
3. The friendly technicians and front desk lady - they're so awesome and fun there, they always make me laugh.
4. Free champagne - I love to have a glass before my service so the waxing doesn't hurt as much.
5. They use the best wax!!
If you need a wax, there is no other place to go!!
Best Waxing Salon, Great Service, Great Staff! – I love Wax On Wax Off!! This place is the best! Their new girl Jeanne is so awesome and friendly, she is definitely my new waxing girl. I love that Wax On Wax Off serves champagne and mimosas with every service, yummy. Not to mention the free parking - hard to find in the Grove. If you are looking for the best see Jeanne and go to Wax On Wax Off.
Great Service!!!! – I've been going to WoWo for over a year until I got laid off from my job in Jan. =( I'm dying to go back because I loved it. Any chance I can get, I'm there. I just won't go to any other waxing salon. Tiely is the best because she makes you feel comfortable and she knows what she's doing. Not to mention, she is the best waxer ever!!!!! Its very professional and a very clean environment. I'm not allergic to the products and that's something i've experienced in the past and it sux. I love that I'm in and out in 30 mins and I LOVE the fact that I can have a mimosa =)
