Recently, we had the pleasure to invite a Houston lifestyle blogger, Christine, to visit Serene Wax Boutique. Since Brazilian wax is our speciality, we decided to offer a complimentary service for Christine, who has reviewed and experienced many beauty and female related services in Houston. We're reposting her review about Serene from her blog.
Check out her review below. Let us know if you agree with Christine.
Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting Serene Wax Boutique in Houston’s Westchase area. Newly opened and conveniently located off Westheimer at S. Gessner near the Beltway, Serene Wax Boutique offers exceptional waxing and hair removal. And when I say exceptional — I mean it!
I’m not a newbie when it comes to waxing and hair removal. As a dark haired Latina with Cuban roots, hair removal is just an unavoidable part of my beauty regimen.
Of the waxing places I’ve tried (yes, mostly chain establishments) – Serene is the best experience I’ve had for many, many reasons. I’m thrilled to be featuring them on my blog today!
First of all, the type of wax and products they use are far superior than what has been used on me before. They use a cream based type of wax along with cloth strips...no double dipping or re-using of cloths. It’s all so very clean. My hubby can vouch, I have pretty high cleanliness standards. They passed with flying colors.
Secondly, I couldn’t believe the pain differences with the cream wax versus the hard wax that other places use. It was so much less! On a scale of 1-10, for me, it was about a 3 for my entire waxing session compared to the usual 6 or 7.
My esthetician, Jessica, who also happens to be one of the boutique’s owners was so lovely and knowledgeable about everything. She made the whole experience absolutely fantastic – telling me what she was doing, more about the products she was using, and sharing tips on how to get the most benefits from waxing. She also made it a point to get to know more about me – kept me talking and kept me at ease the entire time. She is so sweet and personable. Definitely, an A+ in customer service.
Where do I even begin about how beautiful and posh this place is?
Literally, it looks like a couple of my Pinterest boards got together and dreamed up a relaxing, serene, and super cute salon.
It definitely has a unique boutique feel and special charm that you won’t get at any chain waxing establishments. As soon as I walked in, I knew I was there to get pampered and enjoy doing something good for myself. The decor definitely makes an impact.
Serene Wax Boutique offers waxing services of all types: facial, body, bikini, and even options for men (back. chest. and stomach) — but what they specialize in is the Brazilian wax.
Brazilian waxing is serious business, so why not go to the experts? For such a delicate area, waxing needs to be done correctly and with extra care. For plenty of great information and everything you need to know about Brazilian waxes, check out the Serene Wax Boutique Blog.
Confidence is Beautiful.
In one of the waxing rooms, there’s a beautiful quote on the wall that says “If you are confident, you are beautiful.” I couldn’t agree more. Neither could my husband. There’s just something about a woman and her confidence that really stands out. It’s so sexy! My husband has told me before that’s one of the things that attracted him most to me when we first met and started dating – my confidence.
When speaking with Jessica, one thing she said really stuck. She shared with me that many of her clients will come in and say they’re getting waxed because their significant other wants them to. Although that extra encouragement may be needed for a first time waxer, Jessica’s goals are to help her clients feel as beautiful and confident as possible — for themselves.
It’s SO important for us as women to make it a point to take that extra time and put forth the effort to take care of ourselves. I can’t tell you how much it helps me – my health, my mind, my sanity – to work out, eat right, and enjoy my regularly scheduled ME time.
I spent a year of my life, lost — not making it a point to take care of myself, not doing what makes me feel good about myself, and not keeping my health and happiness a priority. My confidence plummeted.
On September 13th, 2013 – I vowed to never ever let that happen again!
