Best place, best people, best service. Jenny is wonderful.
Absolutely loved JennyWax! My best waxing experience ever!
Austin was my waxer, we chatted and joked the whole time. I felt so comfortable and relaxed as if I was hanging out with a good friend. There was even a stubborn ingrown hair that she got out for me. And because I had gotten a wax not too long before then (because the hair had grown in at different rates) she gave me a discount. I would definitely go again and I totally recommend Austin!
I have been a customer for over 4 years - going every three weeks. Jenny has been very thorough with all her services. She is as happy as I am with the results and is very concerned that I am satisfied. She makes the entire process relatively painless as evidenced by the fact I go back every three weeks. The location is always clean and the entire staff is very professional. We are now a two generation family that uses Jenny.
I highly reccomend Jenny Wax for all their services.
LOVE LOVE LOVE these charming girls!
Who would think that I would look forward to a waxing appointment?
Jenny and Austin make the whole process quick and easy. The salon is
so cute, it's like a stylish beach cottage.
They are gracious, meticulous and fun!
I am basing my rating from only one visit to Jenny Wax to get a bikini wax.
I had a great experience there. The receptionist was very friendly and was a lot of help when I couldn't find the right building. She even stepped outside for me until I got there. I didn't have to do any waiting. I was offered water as soon as I got there. My aesthetician was also very friendly and we had a great discussion while I was getting waxed. That helped a lot with the awkwardness that can occur when you are spread-eagle on a table. The place is very cozy and clean. All in all, I have no complaints and will go again when need be.
So given the name and that its located in an alley, I was expecting a bare bones operation with a sparcely decorated/amenitied room. Boy was I off base! The space is modern and spaciaous - including the treatment room which was enourmous.
I received a facial by Austin (or Austen) and is was awesome! my face looked great and I was SUPER relaxed!
Go to Jenny Wax and ask for Austin - you'll not regret it!
On a day where I just didn't feel like laying behind a translucent curtain at my nail salon, or driving to the grumpy Russian woman in Culver City, I stumbled upon JennyWax via a yelp search, and decided to give it a shot. She's a couple blocks from me and had availability that afternoon. Perfect.
The space is light and cozy, and feels like a converted two bedroom apartment. One room for facials and the other for waxing. It's got a nice vibe - Jenny and her assistant are super cool. In fact, it's Jenny's "bedside manner" that sets this place apart. She's a girls girl who's fun to talk to - and somehow manages to make an awkward, painful process not seem so bad. She uses a hard, colored wax that works like a charm. I was really happy with the experience and results - and will absolutely be going back.
After hearing nothing but rave reviews, I finally went in to see Jenny this morning - and she lived up to absolutely ALL of the hype!
After just 3 minutes in Jenny Wax, you already feel at home; in addition to Jenny and Jen, her lovely receptionist, there are usually several neighboring business owners or workers chatting and saying hello. A self professed perfectionist, she will not let you walk out of the door until she is 110% happy with the job.
Believe me - once you go to Jenny, you will never go anywhere else!
I was told a while back by a fellow Yelper that JennyWax was now open on Saturdays. And since I've been spoiled by Box in Las Vegas and hard wax, I thought I should give JennyWax a second try. After all, there was nothing wrong with my experience, just scheduling difficulties and a slightly snotty receptionist. So I scheduled an appointment, and am so glad I did. I had an appointment with Austin, and she did a wonderful job. The space is clean and bright, with interesting sidelines and good magazines in case you have to wait. They had water available and little snacks, and offered to heat up my coffee that had been sitting while I got waxed. It's also upstairs from Sweet Lady Jane bakery........but that's another review altogether. :) Anyway. super happy they're open on Saturday.
Jenny truly has a gift - not only is she AMAZING at what she does, but she makes you feel comfortable in what most people would consider an uncomfortable situation.
I have been going to Jenny for several years for both facials and waxing and wouldn't consider going anywhere else!
I don't like traditional waxing on my eyebrows because I have acne prone skin and use products that make it sensitive, therefore other estheticians prior have actually burned my skin or left me with no skin at all and I have been nervous to continusely get waxing on my brows.
Now for Jenny, she is FABULOUS...she uses hard wax which I guess works best on sensitive skin because I have never had a problem when she waxes me. I never heard of tinting your eyebrows (mine are blonde) but WOW does it make a difference, I highly recommend it! She is very precise and makes sure you look absolutely perfect before you leave her room. She will give you recommendations on products as well as have a relaxing or talkative time in her cozy salon. It's a very personable experience. I will not go to anyone else EVER!
When I move to Los Angeles 8 years ago I went to get a wax at a place in The Valley (name to remain undisclosed). I was told it was the place everyone goes to (pre-Yelp-years, unfortunately). After 8 of the most horrifying minutes of my life and nearly torched skin to prove it (or so it looked as so), I thought "what the F" and OUCH!
THEN....I found Jenny at JENNY WAX in Santa Monica!
Jenny is amazing. Her facials melt my stress away and her waxing technique is thorough, but quick and painless.
She uses 2 different wax varieties and knows which is best suited for your skin type. She carries the Jurlique product line and her facial treatments include the organic beauty product.
In addition to her magic hands melting away your stress during a facial, precise waxing technique, and great products, Jenny is also incredibly warm, welcoming and will listen to your needs, so don't be afraid to speak up. She wants to ensure you leave happy.
Whether you need a wax, facial, or organic beauty products, go see Jenny~It will be love at first treatment (this is coming from one picky chic)!
Amazing service from Jenny herself. Never expected to be treated so well. Glad I moved my office next to hers. I am trying to find any way possible of dirtying my face up so I can schedule another facial as soon as humanly possible.
I'm somewhat modest so when it came to getting a Brazilian wax I had hoped the experience would be as comfortable as one could make getting hair violently ripped out of your "privateness" could be. Jenny did just that...she's like your instant "bestie"...friendly, sweet, real cool and genuine. Even if you are not totally comfortable with waxing you'll be TOTALLY comfortable with Jenny. JennyWax is a bit pricey but I'm sure that is primarily due to the location. The facility and ambiance are very modern and cozy as well. I am sure you will like this place, I did. If you want a good, clean, professional wax, go see Jenny!
I REALLY enjoyed my experience at Jenny Wax. Jenny is highly professional and has such a cute place of business! She is very thorough with her work (even on a brazilian)! I felt at home and at ease in her presence and will definitely be going back for my waxing needs.
One word - AMAZING! Jenny's "hard wax" changed my view of hair removal for life. I switched to threading for my brows, but needles to say, they don't do threading below the belt ;) I no longer leave my wax with out the top layer of my skin and I don't miss painful rashes or unsightly ingrown hairs. Jenny takes it to another level making you feel comfortable in her office and taking the time to pluck those final pesky outlying hairs. I recommend her to all my friends!
Need a facial or waxing girls??? Jenny Wax is the place to go! Not only will you get great service, you'll get to meet Jenny herself. Everyone needs a little Jenny in their life.
Jenny is so amazing! Not only is she a kick-a$$ aesthetician, but she's personable and gorgeous and so much fun to talk to. I went to her for almost everything: arm wax, bikini wax, brow wax, lash tint and brow tint. She definitely gave me the best brow and lash tint of my life. She was fastidious about making sure the waxing was perfect. She's so fun to talk to that I basically forgot about what else was going on. Then she hooked me up with a ton of samples. Great experience. Highly recommend. I'm definitely going back.
I have been going to Jenny for my eyebrow care and facials for 7 years now, and she is truly one of a kind. My skin has rarely had a blemish in 7 years and my brows have always looked clean and glamorous. Jenny is warm, knowledgeable, and patient. I would recommend her services to everyone!
