    Really well trained and friendly staff.
    There is a really wide range of treatments (check out their website).
    What I like is the fact they are open 7 days a week with 2 late nights.
    St. Enoch subway is just next to it.
    Even though the salon is slap bang in the middle of the city centre it has a really relaxing vibe to it and you are made the feel at ease the minute you walk through the door.
    Although it is not the cheapest I feel this reflects the quality of the treatments and the expertise of the staff.
    This place was a ahead of it's time offering Brazilian waxing in the days when a Brazilian was a native of Brasil!

    I've been here a few times.
    granted it was a few years ago, but i know people whom have been more recently and it doesn't appear to have changed that much.

    I went here with my best friend to get some waxing done.
    now the place itself is nice and clean and professiobally run, it was a bit hard to find and i walked past it numerous times before i realised i had to walk upto each door to see if it was on the buzzer system, as its on the top floor and its not exactly greatly visible when your standing and trying to look up.

    once inside the waiting room is nice and the girl doing the waxing was nice she chatted away which reduces the awkwardness that comes with it.
    the job itself was doen efficently and quickly and there was not a problem.

    my problem came at the prices.
    expensive in comparison to ther places its on the highest end,
    also i did feel that i wasn't the kind of person they were usually treating, not that it was obvious or anything but just by the standard and prices of the places and some of the treatments they offer it appears to be more of an up market place.

    safe to say after 3 treatments my money was gone and i went elsewhere for the same thing all be it at a much cheaper price.

    Hmmm. Me and a friend got waxed here two or three times.

    The service itself was good, the wax was done quickly and professionally but the price would make your eyes water.

    Definitely better places to go in and around Glasgow.

    EDIT:

    So after receiving a rude comment from the owner I wanted to drop it from 2 starts to 1.  

    No, by "better places to go", I dont only mean cheaper Robbie, I mean BETTER.

    A better service, better value for money, better staff, better surroundings and better Public relations.  

    Would you like me to list all the better places in Glasgow I have been to? Because I can, and if any ladies need a recommendation then just let me know through message and I'll be glad to say.

    To Robbie: Dont get defensive to a customer who speaks the truth, it only makes you look petty Sir.

    I really like this beauty salon. Its centrally located , just across fro St Enoch underground station, and offers a good range of treatments from electrolysis, red vein removal and non surgical face lifts, through to armoatherapy massage, facials and waxing.

    I go here mainly for their lovely facials - they are a Sothys of Paris appointed salon. The facials are very indulgent and definitely produce visible results. You can buy Sothys products here too as well as gift vouchers for either specific treatments or for a specific amount.

    The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and not at all intimidating.
