    Best Sugaring Experience Ever!

    I've been coming to Maria's Sugaring Studio for over two years now!! I love her so much I have moved with her throughout her different studio locations. She is my go to for all my sugaring needs! I have traveled all over and got sugared in different states...I have to say Maria is definitely by far the best in the business ! She makes her own Sugar Paste & is very gentle and light handed. She also makes sure you are doing okay throughout the whole experience! I would recommend her 10/10!

    Maria is definitely knowledgable!!

    I read the reviews on Yelp but the price (without a coupon) was enough for me to try. I'm glad I didn't listen. Maria was very friendly and did her best to make my first time as smooth (no pun intended) as possible :) She always talked to me and asked me multiple times if I was okay. She definitely showed that she cared. I'm glad I tried this place!

    Maria Body Image Studio

    Maria is an artist and technician....total professional. I originally went to her on a whim while my wife was going to another studio. She was amazed that I didn't scream or cringe in pain from Maria's services and this was my FIRST time ever being waxed. She immediately cancelled her future appointments with her other salon and been a client (me included) of Maria's ever since.

    Customer since September 2011

    Best waxing experience...period

    Maria is the best hands down! A sweet and all around nice person. Coming from a guy who is not used to waxing, her gentle hands makes the experience feel like a breeze! She truly is a gem and there's no one else I'd rather go to than her. Highly recommended!

    Great work

    I have been to Maria twice. The first time I was scared out of my mind to have it done and how I would feel "baring all" (I don't like doing that for my gyno either lol). Maria made me feel 100% comfortable and did a great job. I went back a second time and will continue to go back to her for my Brazilian wax. Thank you, Maria.

    Don't go anywhere else.

    Maria is the best!

    I've been going to Maria for over 5 years for sugaring Brazilian wax. She is the best- I have in the past been to other places and the quality of service and product doesn't compare. She makes her own wax and is very knowledgable about the products she uses. Maria is, on top of it all, an extremely nice person who will make you feel as comfortable as possible. I won't go anywhere else.

    Excellent Experience

    This was my first time getting a wax. Maria made me feel very comfortable and made sure throughout the process that i was ok. The sugar waxing did not hurt as much as i thought it would and she talked to me during the waxing which made process seem short, although it didn't take long at all. When I left I called my friends and immediately recommended Maria because the service i experienced was excellent. I will definitely be going back!

    Repeat customer for years

    I've been going to Maria for a while now and she never disappoints. No, sugaring isn't the most comfortable or easy thing to go thru, but she is quick and distracts you with conversation and before you know it it's over. She will stop if you need a break. I will continue to return to her.

    I am so grateful I found Maria. Her waxing service is fantastic and is provided in an atmosphere is that is both professional and welcoming.

    Best Hygine Experience

    I've been getting sugared for about 6 months now by Maria. The service I receive is the Male Brazilian Sugaring treatment .She is by far the best aesthetician I've gone to . Her technique is very soothing and she makes sure to always ask how your doing throughout the treatment . Also sugaring hair remove last about 3 to 4 weeks before the hair starts to grow back. The hair always grows back a lot thinner which makes it easier each time you get sugared. I highly reccomend Maria's services!

    Customer since February 2014

    Very personable, timely, clean and comfortable environment. Makes own sugaring for waxing. It's hard to find someone in this profession that you don't mind invading your most private space. She also does other spa type cosmetics such as lashes

    Amazing European/Sugar Wax

    I love going to Maria Body Studio! I get a European wax then she finishing it off with a Sugar Wax. I'm pregnant too so the pain increases but she finds a way to make it as painless and quick as possible. I love her and hope I never have to move away. :-)

    No words...

    No words to describe how awesome she was! After asking my friends for recommendations for waxing, I was enthusiastically referred to Maria for her outstanding services. I had never been sugar waxed before, and she assured me it would be worth it. Maria was kind, professional and asked me numerous times throughout my appointment if I was ok or needed a break. She was VERY thorough (which I love) and was gentle (as can be considering the procedure lol). I'll definitely be returning!

    Maria did great work again. Her experience and confidence make the process of waxing bearable. Her friendly and highly professional demeanor and the fact that she is making her own products make the whole experience enjoyable.

    The Best Less Painful Wax Ever

    I just moved here from Atlanta. I started waxing 7 years ago and have used the same person for Brazilian Waxes all those years. I was so nervous moving here to find a new place. I googled Wax places and I saw Maria's place I read the reviews and booked a same day appointment. That Sugar Wax is the best hardly any pain @ all. I will refer her to all my friends.

    Maria is AWESOME!

    Have been going to Maria for several years now and she is amazing! Such a sweet, personable lady and she does an excellent job with the waxing. I've done both the sugar waxing and the european waxing and they are both very good, but I prefer the sugar wax. In my opinion, it is less "painful". Highly recommend Maria!

    I've been going to Maria Body Image Studio since moving to this area - and have followed her from the first location before the King Street metro location, to the present one in Del Rey. She is the absolute best. I have had her do both sugaring and the organic hard wax. She is the most pain free, and thorough. She is pleasant, warm and comfortable. Her products are great. Can't be beat - highly recommend, & yes I've been to others, so I know! Trust me, trust her. Nora does a really good job too.

    Sugar takes the Cake

    Claire is amazing! Punctual, thorough, and has a great heart. Go sugar or go home! I am African-American and have had painful Brazilian/bikini hair removals in the past which drew blood or caused an irritating regrowth process. I've tried the European hard wax with Claire as well...I prefer the sugar. If you can endure large sections removed at a time, then European wax (stripless) may be for you. I however prefer the pliability of sugar. My mom and best friend also support Maria's Body Image.

    Good Work, Bad Service

    Maria's skill is amazing, quick and very clean. However, I was screwed on my groupon. I wasn't able to get an appt before the expiration and even though it was one day after, the groupon wouldn't be honored. I get it, rules are rules, despite the hit on customer service. I purchased another groupon later and the policy does not say that you can only ever use one once, and I didn't use the first one, I just got the credit towards the sugaring. She refused to accept it and I will not back.

    European wax is the way to Go!

    Nora was great and very pleasant. I received a Brazilian wax. My areas were very neat,clean and pretty. Quiet area. I suggest the European wax if your sensitive like me lol. It's less pain and less then the sugaring. Initially when I came my first time I thought sugaring was better because it was more expensive but the European wax is what I enjoyed and will stick too. I was slightly disturbed that they ran out of numbing spray; with the Combo of Nora and European wax my experience was great!

    Won't get a Brazilian with anyone else!

    I have been a customer of Maria's for 3+ yrs. This was my first time at this location. Location was easy to get to (located on second floor) and had no issues finding parking. As always Maria was super friendly, professional, and quick. The only thing I would change about the location was it doesn't offer much privacy as the main door opens out to a hallway that has the potential to have some traffic (a few other offices located on same floor) so a room divider/screen would solve that issue

    Highly recommended, especially for male brazilian

    My February visit was with Maria at the new Del Ray location off Mt. Vernon Ave. in Alexandria--free parking in back. Maria provided male brazilian as well as hair removal from inner thighs, stomach and chest. For guys that have not yet tried sugaring, I highly recommend it over shaving, self waxing, and/or professional waxing. It's less painful, and as practiced by Maria, exceptionally thorough. Thanks Maria! See you soon.

    I've been a customer of Maria Body Image Studio for over a year, and I'll continue to be a returning customer. I typically request a male brazilian and on occasion hair removal on my stomach, chest and legs. This visit was with Claire at the King Street location. Claire is always friendly and conversational as well as exceptionally gentle and thorough. While a brazilian can involve some discomfort, Claire's skill keeps any discomfort at a minimum. Highly recommended.

    Great Eyelash Extensions

    Maria did a FANTASTIC job on my eyelash extensions... I have had these done quite a few time and she is the best! This is a lengthy process (about an hour and a half for a 5wk touch up - so make sure you have time available because she is very thorough!) Very calm environment - I was able to sleep while she was putting the extensions on and woke up to gorgeous lashes! I highly recommend Maria Body Image Studio!!

    Always Satisfied!

    Maria is great! She's very efficient, detailed and makes sure you are taken care of. She makes you feel comfortable. I've been going to her for a couple years and I always leave satisfied. Both of her locations are always clean and professional. I would give 5 stars, but parking is difficult for Alexandria location, you have to find street parking and pay the meter. The Tysons location is a little awkward, be it there is only one room reserved for her space. Other than that I am very pleased!

    Sugar wax review

    I had my first bikini sugar waxing experience with Claire this past Sunday. Not only was Claire very kind, but her experience with waxing and ability to talk and explain everything was very calming. The sugar waxing is much more comfortable than traditional strips. I highly recommend this service to anyone who is interested. Claire is a competent professional who will take good care of you. Thank you Claire and look forward to seeing you soon!

    Long Term Client

    Maria has been doing my Brazilian for YEARS now and I absolutely love her! I have no complaints and am always satisfied with my results. This was my first time receiving services from anyone but Maria and although I was very skeptical in the beginning, Claire did an amazing job as well!!! I highly recommend this business.

    Consistently a great experience

    I've been a customer for about a year now. Maria is an expert and consistently has made each experience as pleasant as possible for waxing. Her prices are very fair, especially if you compare them to other salons, and the results are fantastic. I wouldn't go anywhere else and I highly recommend Maria and her team members to everyone!

    Always the Best...And, Top Notch Customer Service

    Maria Body Image Studio is the only place I have ever had a Brazilian. I have been going for about four years (though I took about a year break due to work demands and traveling). Maria is always so sweet and professional. She makes you feel at ease from the jump and will remember you. She is well priced as well. When I was first looking for a place, I found MBI to be the lowest priced by at least $20. You will not regret using MBI for your services!

    The best!

    I've been going to Maria's for almost a year now. Both Maria and Claire are fabulous! They are so accommodating and really understand their clients needs. I have very coarse hair and sensitive skin, which makes waxing pretty painful. However, they talk you through the entire process and make sure you are ok every step of the way. I would definitely recommend Maria's to anyone who is apprehensive about waxing.

    Fabulous Facial

    Overall service is acceptable

    it wasn't a note worthy customer service but I also wasn't disatisfied. I think Claire could use to be a bit warmer but her overall service delivery was satisfactory and I felt for the most part comfortable. I'm not sure whether I will return. It was also a good living social deal (you get absolutely what you pay for)

    Maria is hands down the best. She's quick and efficient. I always leave feeling smooth. Her process is painless and gentle and she's such a joy to talk to :-) I have been to many places and either i'm sore after or I still have patches. Maria's body image studio is hands down the best sugaring studio in the DMV area. I highly recommend to anyone interested, especially first timers.

    Best Wax Ever

    Maria does an incredible job! I've been going to her for almost 2 years. I have super sensitive skin and she makes it as painless as possible. She is so accommodating to my needs and whether or not I'm comfortable. She has different options for your sensitivity level and for your skin. With 2 locations, both by the metro, she's very convenient. I highly recommend!!

    SIMPLY THE BEST

    Maria is by far the best waxing specialist that I've ever been to. She is a very knowledgeable and experienced professional who provides top notch service during each waxing service appointment. I've been going to Maria for the last two years and her male Brazilian waxing service is simply the best. I'd highly recommend Maria and her staff for all of your waxing needs.

    Never Disappointed

    I have been going to Maria for sugar waxing for the past 3 years consistently. I have never had a bad experience with her or Claire. I have very sensitive skin so the sugar wax is great because I have no reaction like with the hot wax at other salons. Both women make what is usually an awkward uncomfortable service the exact opposite. I cannot say enough good things about Maria and Claire. Keep up the great work!!!

    Customer since May 2011

    Awesome

    Maria always does my Sugar Wax. She is amazing. She always makes sure I'm comfortable and talks me through the pain. It was painful the first few times I went in and I bruised, however, I don't attribute that to anything done wrong. There is a noticeable difference in the texture of my hair and the pain is more bearable. I am glad I was recommended to this location and I would definitely recommend this to anyone I know.

    I have been to several waxing salons in the Alexandria (and DC) area, and Maria is by far the best! Although no bikini waxing service is pain free, it's as comfortable as it can be and she does an amazing job. Online scheduling is very convenient. Oh, and did I mention Maria is SO NICE and professional?! I feel 100% comfortable with zero awkwardness- so important.

    I've been going to Maria Body Image studio since Spring of 2012 and haven't gone anywhere else. Needless to say, I was terrified the first time (I get sugar brazilian all the time now) but the service and locale make you very comfortable. After repeated visits it hurts less. The price is reasonable for this area and for the skill and professionalism Maria provides. I'd recommend it to anyone!

    recommend

    I like Maria Body. Give it at least few times. First might be a bit more painful but as time goes by you will notice that it's not bad at all. Please note that I'm a big fan of hard wax (not sugaring) and Maria Body was able to deliver that service. Sugaring is more painful for me and hard wax just feels better. I'm happy this salon offers hard wax option and would recommend to my friends. In fact , a friend of mine is also into hard wax and affordable price that's why both of us ended up here.

    Maria's Body Image Studio is Fantastic

    I've been going here for over 1.5 years and keep coming back. I choose to do the sugaring services for my woman parts and feel it's the most efficient and lower in pain than traditional waxing. Maria does an amazing job of taking my mind off of the pain at hand (let's face it, this type of service is always going to involve some pain) but she makes quick.She also does a good job of reading me and knows when to give me a moment. It's not a super clean spa but I feel very comfortable and recommend

    Had my first appointment at Maria's with Claire. She was pleasant and made me feel comfortable. I would recommend them for sugaring.

    Best for Brazilians

    I've had Brazilians done using wax and by sugaring, and sugaring (which Maria does) is far superior. Significantly less painful than waxing. Plus, Maria's professionalism and personable nature makes you (almost) forget that she's ripping the hair off your privates. I've been her client for two years and highly recommend.

    Waxing

    This has been the best waxing experience of my life. My comment may seem over the top but when you're a woman it is important that you're in a comfortable, clean, friendly environment. They utilize the latest technics and have their own recipe for the sugar wax. Whether it's your first time or if you're a regular I recommend Maria's Body Image.

    Sugar is so sweet! (I know, I know....)

    I have had two Brazilian waxes, and while I am pretty good with pain, this sugaring was super easy and relatively painless. The "aftermath" is so much better, too. I don't feel like I have done myself major harm for beauty's sake. I will NEVER go back to waxing, and I am considering getting my armpits waxed as well. The appearance of the location leaves something to be desired, but the service was outstanding! I regret that I did not get my esthetician's name, but she was excellent.

    Finally a Sugar Waxing Spot that Rocks

    It took me a little bit to realize the salon was in what looked like a townhome in oldtown, alexandria (quaint). Walked up to the 2nd floor and Maria's Body Image Studio is just that, a studio but it was a clean lovely zen like atmosphere. Perfect for what was needed. I had my brazilian with Nora, a sweet morocan woman, she was swift and gentle (well as gentle as can be). got everything done just as i like it. and the prices are decent. i will definetly be back!

    A New Experience

    This was my first visit to Maria Body Image Studio...I have to admit when I walked in I was very skeptical! The atmosphere wasn't as "neat" or "organized" as other establishments, they could definitely work on the aesthetics. However, Nora is an angel!! This was my first time getting a Brazilian sugar treatment and despite the discomfort in general of that service, she made the experience as painless and comfortable as humanely possible. Will certainly go back just for her services!

    great experience!

    I love the clean feel of a good wax. The service here was pleasant, the facility felt clean. The only annoying thing was that since I had a Groupon I could only schedule my appointment on Thursday or Friday which are tough days for me. But they did a good job so it was worth it!

    Great First Time Sugaring

    This was my first time sugaring. I have done a Brazilian wax before and while definitely not painless sugaring was better than waxing. Marie is great, she keeps you talking helping to not focus on the pain. I will be back. Even without the groupon the prices are pretty reasonable.

    Good Service

    This was my first waxing session and it was much less painful than expected. Maria Body Image studio was really nice. The process was fairly quick and Maria was very friendly. She talked to me throughout my session and helped although I was a bit confused upon my arrival. I would reccommend this place. The only thing is I did not get the $29 fee that were supposed to be charged to new clients as advertised on her website.

    Best Experience At Maria's

    Maria is fantastic and makes you feel comfortable immediately. The sugar wax she uses really makes the waxing process as painless as possible. Recently, however, she's made another type of wax that works miracles. There is absolutely zero pain and this was after I hadn't been there in a while. I highly recommend Maria Body Image Studio! Appointments are easy to make online, there's lot of street parking nearby, and you will be happy with the results!

    Comfortable and Smooth

    I have been seeing Maria for almost 3 years... I never see anyone else! A loyal customer. I am comfortable with her, and she has a great personality to keep my mind away from the pain of waxing, haha. She is thorough and professional. Be sure to be 5 min early, just to be safe and give yourself time to park as it can get a little full depending on the day and time of day. She's a busy lady, and punctuality is important!

    MARIA IS THE BEST !

    I've tried different places in the area but as soon as I found Maria's Body Image Studio (through a lot of positive reviews on the internet) , that was it, I've made my choice. I've been going to Maria (she is the best by the way) for about a year now and I am very please with the results. She is very good at what she does, she listens and she has an amazing personality! One warning though: do NOT be late ! :) She is always overbooked and doesn't like to wait.

    Great experience every time

    Every time I have had an appointment with Maria, she is always upbeat and is so friendly to talk to. I've come in having a bad day, and an appointment with her just makes me feel better (and nicely waxed as well). Sugar waxing is the way to go. I've gone at least 4 times now and it still hurts, but is totally worth it. I have tried other sugar waxers in this area, but they are not as good as Maria.

    Sugar waxing

    My sugar waxing at Maria's is always a pleasure. She is very accommodating and ensures that you are as comfortable as possible. Of course this will possibly always be a painful procedure, but I will make sure I experience it with Maria. I've been other places and they don't compare.

    My first Brazilian wax

    I liked coming to Maria Body Image Studio. I came in to get a sugar Brazilian wax for my first time. When I first arrived the staff was very welcoming and made me feel comfortable. The lady who was doing my waxing (I forget her name) was very nice. I explained to her it was first time and she was very patient with me. I gave Marie Body Image Studio three stars because the end result to the waxing was not satisfactory because there was still some hair left.

    No place better!

    I have been going to Maria for almost 4 yearsand can't believe I am only NOW writing a review! She is by far the best place for a brazillian that I know of in all my experience. Prices are affordable, the studio is clean, calming, relaxing and most importantly she knows what she is doing! Sugaring is a lot less painful than (and quicker in my opinion) than traditional waxing. I highly reccomend Maria, always a smile on her face and a professional!

    Definitely going again

    The studio was incredibly clean and Maria was so friendly. I have had other Brazilian sugars in the area and have never once been asked if I was doing alright. Maria did and made sure to apply pressure to the most sensitive areas. They make their own product so they can keep their prices reasonable. I am definitely coming back here from now on.

    I have been seeing Maria for over 2 years and as always she does a great job. She's quick and professional. I have been taken care of her associates on occasional and Maria is the best of the bunch.

    A little painful

    I have been coming to Maria's studio for a while. Maria is fantastic. Carolina did my last waxing. She was reasonably thorough but missed a little hair. I think she needs to be more systematic to avoid missing any hair. It was more painful than usual. I am not sure why she kept having to wax the same area over & over again, as my hair is not thick, and there is not a significant amount. This is a great studio, but Maria is the best one to see.

    The ONLY place to get a great wax job!

    I had Carolina as my waxer & she was amazing! She was very charismatic & made sure every hair was gone. I highly recommend her for a brazilian. The facility was quaint & clean & the price was more than just right. Carolina just got herself a regular with me.

    Waxing Services Review

    I've been going to Maria for about a year now and absolutely love her! She came recommended from a friend of mine and I've been more than pleased with her level of customer service and delivery of what you pay for when coming to her studio. I use her waxing services and have found her to be amoung the best I've ever used. She reads her customers well and will take time when needed and explains things well for first timers or anyone new to waxing. I would recommend her services.

    My New Go-To

    My first experience with Maria was fantastic. I've been sugaring for two years and this was the least painful session I've had. Maria is kind, patient, and thorough. The price is the best in Old Town; can't beat that. I will definitely be back!

    I LOVE this place!!!

    I visited Maria's the other day for the first time and i absolutely loved it! They were quick, efficient and thorough. I did hear Maria bicker at another waxer for being a tad bit unprofessional but that wasn't a big issue. Even though it is far from me, i will definitely be back. Maria was very helpful and knowledgable about waxing. She had a tight schedule but was able to fit me and a friend into one time slot. I havr no complaints. I will definitely be back!!

    I've been a client of Maria Body image studio for more than a year and I love it. Maria is a perfectionist, so she makes sure to do the wax carefully. Her experience and professionalism makes the experience comfortable. I highly recommend her.

    Quick and Price good

    I scheduled my appointment at the last minute and the next day got a monthly visitor and attempted to reschedule. When I called they told me they would still be able to do it and surprisingly they did. Maria did mine and she was quick about it and did not make it awkward about the experience and did NOT charge me more because of my visitor. I will be going back.

    Brazilian Wax

    This was my first experience with waxing so I was very nervous to begin with! The studio is a little difficult to find but once you enter, it is well decorated with a nice ambiance. The entire session took approximately 20 minutes and Maria was efficient, kind (she would stop periodically to ask me how I was doing), and conversation was pleasant (she even took an interest in my life)! I will definitely be a returning customer and will recommend her to all my friends!

    Brazilian wax for a Brazilian girl

    Being a brazilian I know how hard it can be to find a good waxing service in the U.S., but Maria is as great as the professionals in Brazil. She is very knowledgable and serious on what she does. Her studio is super clean and cozy and the vibe is just amazing... Candles, music and an incredible atmosphere. Maria is a hard worker and her passion for what she does makes her services excellent!!! A++++

    The Sugar Brazilian Wax for Women is Great!!!!

    Maria is great! A fun person who knows her stuff and her services are inexpensive. I had a difficult trying to find the location at first but once I found it I was in love. It's a nice cozy atomosphere and it is very clean which is a plus. She advised me on how the sugar brazilian was the best option for removing the hair. I am definitely a regular now!

    Take Two

    Very nice atmosphere, friendly technicians, conveniently located, and reasonably priced. I went for my first sugaring service (half leg and chin). Unfortunately, by the next day I had developed sores on one side of my chin and several small bumps on the other. Because this was my first experience, I am not sure what factor(s) caused this or what treatments by the esthetician or by me could have prevented it. Still, I would give it another shot.

    I love Maria. She is the only person I have gone to for a Brazilian and the only person I feel comfortable with since I've been loyal to her for so long.

    Brazilian Wax was Great!

    First visit to Maria's - they used "sugar" for my Brazilian waxing. It was much less painful than regular hot wax, and gave a very clean wax. Will definitely be going back.

    Customer since April 2013

    Awesome experience!

    Awesome experience with Noura! She was prompt, very sweet and quick. I was able to easily find parking close by due to my appt being first thing Saturday morning, but you do have to pay. Prices are very reasonable. Any irritation that I had right after the sugaring was cleared very quickly. I did follow their pre and post sugaring/waxing instructions which I believed assisted in there not being so much irritation after the process. Will definitely be going back!

    Customer since April 2013

    Great Experience!

    I had been getting traditional Brazilian wax treatments for years, and had endured the stinging pain that lasts for hours afterwards. The sugar wax method employed by Maria's is second to none! The application technique is definitely different than a traditional wax, but I highly recommend it. Noura is a master of this craft and has a quiet spirit and warm smile. I had no irritation and was very impressed with my overall experience. I have already booked my next appointment.

    Customer since April 2013

    Wonderful!

    Great experience with Maria! I have extremely sensitive skin and have had horrible reactions to wax, so I was nervous to go somewhere new when I moved away from my trusted sugaring spot in the South. Maria was friendly, fast, and efficient- and the sugar was natural and caused no allergic reaction! I'm also paying a third of what I paid before. I will definitely be back.

    Customer since April 2013

    Best Wax....EVER

    Maria is wonderful. So wonderful that my husband has also been inspired. Her technique is quicker and much less painful. You will NEVER want to go through the hot wax again. She explains exactly what she is doing, and checks in to make sure you are doing ok. Oh yeah..the prices are reasonable too. Great place to go.

    Great Experience

    This was my first bikini wax and my skin is highly sensitive. Maria was great! She took her time to explain the process, and was very personable. Sugar waxing is absolutely the way to go. The salon was recommended by a close friend and I'm glad I took her suggestion....

    Clean and painless

    I chose Maria body image studio because they offer sugar waxing. It's much more sanitary than the traditional wax. There's no double dipping involved with sugar wax! I've had Brazilian and upper lip wax services here. Maria is so professional and really makes you feel comfortable. My recommendation for the Brazilian is that you take ibuprofen a couple hours before your appointment. It will help alleviate the pain. Five stars for being a clean, professional and friendly salon.

    Best Brazilian Ever!

    Maria was recommended to me by a friend, and I am so thankful. I was always skeptical about sugaring, and wondered if it works as well as hot wax. Not only does it work great, it’s less painful! No hot wax irritating your skin. Maria is so fast that it’s over before you know it.

    I don't understand where all the bad living social reviews are coming from.... This was my first time sugaring, I bought a Living social deal and made an appointment with Maria. She was very professional and so incredibly patient about letting me take breaks when I needed to. She was very supportive and nice about walking me through this new experience. I will most certainly come back and become a regular!

    One hour facial

    I liked Maria's facial. It was through and pleasant. Unfortunately, unlike Maria Carolina was clumsy and amateurish and could not communicate. Contrary to her impression, My daughter who had a facial with Carolina was very dissatisfied. The facial was not thorough and was uncomfortable. We would visit Maria body image studio again only if we had a facial with Maria herself.

    Male Brazilian

    I have been going to Maria for the last 3 - 4 years. Maria is very good and very professional in her approach. She uses a sugaring solution that is much less painful and harmful than hard wax. Even though it's painful for a moment she's very perceptive and pauses to let you catch your breath. We laugh about it and she continues to work quickly. I appreciate her humor and her care and am very happy that she continues to offer a very reasonable service. I highly recommend her.

    First time experience brazilian w/this place

    I had scheduled online for Maria, ended up having my brazilian done with Nora. Awesome atmosphere, service... Had brazilian done, this was my 4th time getting a brazilian done, but first time trying sugaring-I usually use hot wax. I still think waxing and sugaring are the same except waxing w/out sugar is faster if done right (or with the right kind of wax). Definitely worth a visit. Used a voucher from Living Social.
