A few days ago, I popped into Waxing the City Alexandria to meet the owner, Laura, and to find out what all the hype was about. If you haven't yet been -- Waxing the City is one of the hottest new businesses in Northern Virginia.
When you enter a Waxing the City studio, you know you’re somewhere special. A quick look around reveals a modern, edgy, and upscale interior. From the vibrant reception area to the comforting treatment rooms, it’s clear that Waxing the City is all about you.
I'm not going to lie... I usually get my brows waxed at my nail salon in a cold, blank room with maybe not the cleanest equipment. I was missing out. That is absolutely NOT what you'll find at Waxing the City. From a super clean space to the friendly, knowledgable cerologists, I was beyond impressed with the service I received. In fact, after getting my eyebrows waxed by Laura, I had two people compliment them -- and the look so good, that one women asked if I had gotten them microbladed!
