Full disclosure: I am writing this review with a warm compress on my bikini area. I got waxed Saturday afternoon and today is Tuesday. I was reluctant to go back to European Wax. My last three waxes have been with them (one at the Royal Oaks location and twice at the San Felipe/S. Voss location.) While the staff is professional and the locations are clean, I feel the staff isn't as skilled as other spas. I've been waxing for several years and European Wax is the only place that I have negative experiences. My wax Saturday was the most painful ever and I literally cried on the table. The technician was overly chatty, like a teenager and she wasn't as careful as I'd like (because she was talking so much). Without asking about a soul patch or landing strip, she applied wax to the middle. I told her I always leave some there but it was too late. As she tried to pull the wax, it broke...so you know what that meant: More tugging. As if that wasn't bad enough, she continued on to the next section and got wax on the section opposite it. Rather than trim the wax as I suggested, she decided to tug from afar. The pain overall was about a 9.5 on a scale of 1-10 and I cried. This is where her lack of maturity and skill shone through: to relax me, she told me her very own wax horror story. Yes, while I'm in tears with more waxing to go, the technician told me while she was in training her friend dropped a glob of wax in the center of her "Chewbacca" crotch and ultimately her teacher had to rip it off with all her might. I had to focus all my energy on deep breathing to overcome that story and get finished. I went home and took aspirin. Sunday I noticed some swelling and took more aspirin. By Monday, I had tiny little white bumps all over the front and creases of my bikini area! I immediately went to my gyno who explained it was a reaction to the waxing experience and all I can do is apply a warm compress, topical cream twice a day until it goes away in a few days and take ibuprofen for the pain. Y'all. I can barely walk. I am so pissed off and in so much pain. I can't stand to touch it to apply the cream because I'm tender from the top of my panty line downward. This is the first time I have had a breakout from waxing. I appreciate the friendliness of the staff, but I would value a skilled and careful technician so much more. European Wax, please keep your technicians in training a bit longer or offer on-going training or master technicians who can come and help when an inexperienced one has a client CRYING on the table.

Delicious soup, polite and fast service. And the to-go bowls can hold the soup! It's perfect.
