I honestly never leave bad reviews but this made me beyond upset. I drove in a rush to my apt. Just to find out I wasn't even on her system which ok I get, mistakes happen. But the fact that she couldn't get back to me in about an hour is beyond unprofessional. Definitely passing this info along. From one business woman to another. Good luck.
New to facials I was a bit cautious of whom I would trust because of having rosacea. Carrie is so knowledgeable this put me at ease immediately. Now 6 months later, I wish I would have had her take a starting picture, because I already see results...less fine lines and aging, glowing/healthy skin, and calm rosacea. I love the products I'm now using, and Carrie speaks my language...meaning she hears me when I tell her a concern or need. I knew I needed to give my face some TLC...and now I am...Thank you Carrie!
Carie is fantastic. I did my waxing with her and she is absolutely the best. Unfortunately I switched jobs and no longer around the area but I absolutely recommend her!!
Carrie is an awesome esthetician! I had my first ever facial here and can't wait to come back. I was struggling with 1st trimester hormonal acne and she helped clear me up and gave me tips to keep up with cleansing at home. She wasn't pushy at all on products which I know many salons can be. So appreciate for an amazing first facial experience. She is so so sweet, professional and works in a very clean space. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
I came to Carrie for a facial after meeting her and following her on IG. I am in my late thirties and I wanted to address my skin care needs that include fine lines and dryness around my eyes, dark circles around my eyes, oily on my t-zone. I have always had nice skin, but as I am aging my skin has different needs, which is why I came to Carrie. Carrie was knowledgeable, informative, professional, and created an upbeat and positive environment.
Got my Brazilian done by Carrie and she was very nice. She did it with very less pain advised me on ways to exfoliate so I don't get ingrown. She seemed to be very knowledgeable as well. Even when the salon was 15 miles from my place I think I will book her again. For anyone who has tried a few waxing salons, you should try this one and may be your search for a good waxing salon will end here.
I have gone to Carie for a few years now - she is full of knowledge and cuts out the BS of heavily marketed products and fads. She’s 100% honest in her sessions with you, does not push products but will always give you her true recommendations. I’ve gone to her for both waxing and facials but she provides other services that seem super effective. Waxing was easy and she is careful in her execution. Facials are my favorite! Delicious products and I’m always glowing after. 10/10 would recommend this lady.
If you are afraid of getting waxed then Carie is your go to! She has the best technique and will make you feel extremely comfortable. She will take her time and guide you through it.She specializes in many other wellness treatments like fascia blasting and plasma lifts. I have now gone to her for quite a few years and would never go anywhere else.
Long review for Carrie -- but worth it! I went to school in San Diego but came back home after graduating and needed a new place to wax. I found Carrie on Groupon and had a great experience! I didn't go back since I was traveling and finally have settled back down in OC for now and, again, needed a new waxer. I was browsing through Groupon and found her again. Carrie was so sweet and accommodating with issues that I was having with Groupon vouchers and also being a returning customer. Waxing experience wise, she's great at what she does. Her room is very clean and calming. She's very friendly and makes you feel relaxed. I've only met her once before (from the previous wax last summer) and it didn't feel awkward talking to her at all. She's also very knowledgable in her field and I trust her recommendations. I've been to many waxers over the last 4+ years or so and she's definitely one of the best. I'll be returning to her again for sure. 10/10 would recommend. She's a little bit pricier than most of the other places I've been to but worth the extra few bucks. If you're looking for a go-to person maybe try out the Groupon she offers first to see how you feel, but I promise you she's great and you'll want to go back!
