I've been going to Bare Essentials for almost 2 years and the service that is provided is outstanding.
Laurie and her team are amazing at what they do. What is also unique is how the team is treated by Laurie, it's rare for an employee to mention how great their boss is and how they are valued - and I hear this often from employees at Bare Essentials.

Both locations are clean, have amazing decor and make you feel instantly welcome.
Service is beyond quick and painless. How many other places can you walk in and out in under 10 minutes? And done perfectly!

If you've never been to Bare Essentials book your appointment now - it's so easy online and they send you a friendly reminder for those of us who have a full calendar!
Congratulations Laurie on your new location and continuing to build a trusted brand!

This is a good place to go for a wax that is very fast, efficient, and cost effective. Just be prepared to find a few missed hairs when you get home. Usually, it's not a big deal (a couple stray hairs), but sometimes they miss larger chunks. Just trying to give an honest review.

Sometimes the aestheticians are very thorough, and don't miss any. Sometimes I've had red patches of skin last for days, perhaps because they went over the same area (or maybe my skin has gotten sensitive?).

Top marks for speed and price. Consistency with quality could be better.

First of all, I did quite a bit of research with regards to the Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph laser hair removal scene. One can learn a great deal from a website. Some websites obviously over-reach. And some website lack any effort. But not with Bare Essentials. Everything fit quite well. The website inspired confidence, a confidence that had to get past my 55 year old cynicism. Then my first visit to Bare Essentials confirmed that I made the right choice. The staff was welcoming and professional. And my laser hair removal treatments met with my expectations. Since facial hair is almost bomb proof, I'm currently getting my touch-ups to chase the regrowth which was expected. If for one minute I didn't believe that Bare Essentials was a good fit for me, I would have went somewhere else for the touch-ups. I looked forward to going back for further treatment. I'll have no problem recommending Bare Essentials to anyone seeking laser hair removal treatments. I'm glad I made the right choice!!! Sincerely ... Wallis Garbotz
