I went to Earth Mama Esthetics yesterday and I wish I hadn't. I'm sure many people have had positive experiences there. Had I read one review like the one I'm about to post, I guarantee I would have never stepped foot in that place.
I went for a facial wax. I've been getting my eyebrows and lip waxed for years, mainly at the Benefit Brow Bar and never have I EVER had a bad reaction. I recently moved out to Plainfield and need to find a new place for facial waxing, so I decided to give Earth Mama a try.
Well, the owner Karen started with my eyebrows. When she was done, it was pretty painful, and I was upset because she did not do an arch. I asked her if she could make a higher arch for me and she says, "Oh, you want a bitch arch." Uh, sure? I just want a nice, high arch, like I always get.
Now, this is the mortifying part. Karen says I have "baby fine hair" and goes to get a different wax for my eyebrows. After she rips off the wax, I start to feel an immense amount of pain. I grab a mirror to check my face out and notice that not only has Karen taken so much brow off, SHE ALSO TOOK SO MUCH SKIN OFF! The skin above my eyes and between my brows were on fire and were so raw. So painful. I started crying and Karen just goes, "Well, we never know how anyone's skin will turn out." Really, lady? I've NEVER had anyone rip my skin off like that, and her comments were not sympathetic at all. Just admit you screwed up, Karen, as opposed to defending yourself for violating my face.
This was hands down the most embarrassing experience of my life. I walked out sobbing uncontrollably and no one even said anything to me. KAREN, thanks for ripping the skin off my face and tossing it in the trash, hope you enjoyed it.
