Bare Elegance Waxing Salon
Some Thoughts From Marcela
If you could have a purse full of anything what would it be?
Limitless gift cards! One to Starbucks, one to Sephora to support my lipstick obsession and another to Virgin America Airlines to travel the world in style! Oh, and a sweet camera to document it all!
Who would you like to make over most in the world?
Hmm, this one is a toughie but I would have to say Miley Cyrus. She is a beautiful, talented young lady but you don’t have to cause a stir for people to notice you. I would tone her down and show her that classy is memorable and timeless.
What was your biggest fashion disaster?
Growing up in the 90’s, I’ve had quite a few. But I can’t erase the memory of butterfly clips in my hair, platform sandals, plastic choker necklaces and clothes so bright it looked like I came from the set of a Rainbow Brite movie. My mom blames working the night shift at the time and waking up 3 hours later to pick out my outfits for school. Thanks mom… I now have amazing photo albums!
What is something most people don’t know about you?
When I was 12, I aspired to make my dreams come true and become a model/actress. Somehow my platform sandals made it to the catwalk with me (…I tell ya) and my acting coach was so intense that if I forgot my lines or if they weren’t “believable”, he would make me do crazy things to get my out of my comfort zone. I got on all 4’s to bark like a dog, dance like I was at a club (by myself with the camera rolling) and stare at a boy’s eyes an inch from his face for 5 minutes because he was my “brother” in the script and I wasn’t showing that I loved him like one. I started tearing up cause I couldn’t keep the focus any longer that close to his face! Haha. I laugh when I think back and needless to say, I faked sick one day and never went back. Maybe acting and modeling weren’t my niches but it sure got me out of my bubble!
What Our Clients Say About Marcela
My first experience at elegance wax was absolutely amazing!! Not only is the service incredibly professional and friendly, but the salon is gorgeous with an boutique of lingerie from across the world and a waiting area adorned with art, complimentary champagne and tea with cookies. I received the best Brazilian wax I’ve ever had with Marcella. She is extremely knowledgeable and a straight boss when it comes to waxing. read more of this review and other reviews about Marcela
This place is great. A little hard to find, it is up two sets of escalators and located above the post office. Receptionists were friendly and welcoming. They also offered champagne, water or tea. The waiting area is comfortable and tidy. The rooms were clean and they use both hard and soft wax. Marcella was awesome. She worked very quick and diligently, all while making good conversation. I think she’s the most precise esthetician I’ve had and I’ve been waxing for years. read more of this review and other reviews about Marcela
This place is awesome! I’ve been getting my eyebrows and Brazilian waxing for over 20 years now and no one has done a better job than Marcela. My brows are super thin so it’s really hard to make any arch or make them look full-looking and she nailed it. The Brazilian was the fastest, least painful one I’ve ever had. read more of this review and other reviews about Marcela
I was able to squeeze in a last-minute emergency brow appointment at lunch today. I am a devotee to threading, but after seeing Marcela, she may have changed my ways. From the first moment I walked in, I felt like my needs were their first priority . . . Marcela took her time, asked for my feedback, and then perfectly filled my brows. read more of this review and other reviews about Marcela
