After my vacation to the Dominican Republic I was determined to find a good wax place! Ladies there is only so much those at home hair removal kits can do if we’re speaking honestly. As a result, I’m so excited to share more details about the best bikini wax I’ve ever gotten at Waxing The City Dallas in University Park. I’ve seriously left with zero pain and the owner Melissa was extremely sweet throughout the entire process. Keep reading to see how you can get $50 towards your next appointment. But first here are more details about my wax appointment.
Waxing The City Dallas
When I decided to partner with Waxing The City I knew I wanted a bikini wax. I’ve waxed 3 times in my whole life, which included 2 bikini waxes and one Brazilian. Let’s just say the Brazilian life isn’t for me. As soon as I arrived I met with the Waxing The City Dallas – University Park owner Melissa Narro and she walked me back to the waxing room. Melissa is probably the nicest person I’ve ever met when it comes to receiving a personal care service like waxing. She carefully walked me through the bikini wax process, educating me on the Waxing The City method and what differentiates them from their competitors.
While most waxing places focus on speed, Waxing The City’s purpose to to approach each appointment from a personal level. Each person’s pain tolerance, skin, and the direction the hair grows is different so their personalized approach takes out all of the anxiety with getting a wax.
First Melissa examined my bikini area and prepped it with the Waxing The City pre wax serum. The serum naturally numbs & cleanses the skin before waxing. It is made with all-natural ingredients with a light green tea eucalyptus scent and is paraben-free, sulfate-free, DEA & TEA-free, petrochemical-free, phalate-free and cruelty-free. Baby powder was applied and then used as an extra buffer between the wax and the skin.
The Waxing Process
Soft Wax vs. Hard Wax
During the waxing process Melissa then explained to me the difference between hard and soft wax, which was a total learning experience for me. In the picture above the hard wax is orange and soft wax is yellow. Hard wax engulfs the hair vs. the skin for less pain. When the hard wax is pulled the wax mainly takes the hair and does not yank at the skin as much as soft wax. Hard wax is for more sensitive areas like the bikini line. Waxing strips are not needed with hard wax. The wax itself is applied to the area, hardens and then pulled away with the hair. This also allowed Melissa to apply the wax to smaller areas and take her time for less pain.
Some areas were more sensitive than others but overall on a scale of 1-9 the pain level was a 4. And I didn’t leave Waxing The City still in pain as I have with other places. Once the procedure was done I didn’t feel anything.
After the wax, a post wax serum was applied to soothe and heal skin and prevent any reactions. Similar to the pre-wax it is made with all natural ingredients and is paraben-free, sulfate-free, DEA and TEA-free, petrochemical-free, phalate-free and cruelty-free.
I also decided to take advantage of one of the enhancements Waxing The City offers. I went with the Hydrating Lip Gels since I’ve been having serverely dry lips lately. This enhancement was everything!
Other Amazing Products
Of course I couldn’t talk about skin care without mentioning some of the body products Waxing The City offers as well.
- Sugar Scrub – I learned during my appointment exfoliating your bikini area in between appointments helps prep the hair follicle for your next appointment. Their gentle, oil-based scrub has four scents. (Not So) Vanilla, Mint to be, Citrus-A-Peel & LOVEnder. The scrub is gentle enough for daily use and is made with botanical-based natural ingredients and essential oils. It’s also paraben-free, sulfate-free, gluten-free, vegan, cruelty-free with no dyes of course.
- Body Butter – Any great wax appointment is followed by a great moisturizer. After using the sugar scrub, apply a small amount and massage into desired areas of the body. The body butter is available in the same scents as the sugar scrub.
Overall, I was very nervous to get a wax but my fears were completely put at ease working through Melissa. If you are skeptical about getting a wax too, a good test is to see how well the employees at your studio of choice treats their customers. You want someone who will take their time with your precious areas and make you feel 100% comfortable.

I’ve been wanting to get a wax forever but I’ve always been afraid of the pain. Thanks for sharing your insight on this place. I definitely have to reconsider waxing again!
Thanks for reading! I totally understand but this place is really good.
So glad you shared this! I’ve had a bikini wax once. It wasn’t a bad experience but it also didn’t wow me and I haven’t had another one. I’ve heard about numbing products but was concerned about chemicals, it’s nice to know that what they use is all natural. Now I have something to consider, I’ll wait until the 28th thought for sure 😉
Thanks for reading! And yes their products were really good.
I get waxed a good two times a year! Once in June or July and then again for New Year’s Eve. I let so much time go in between because of the ingrowns that come a few weeks after! I exfoliate and use the Tend skin to combat it but to no availability. Depending on the salon, sometimes the ingrowns are really bad and sometimes it’s no so bad. Pain also ranges from a 3 to a 10!
Yikes! Well she also told me that waxing every 6-8 weeks help with the pain tolerance as well because the hair grows back thinner. So something to think about. 🙂
I haven’t tried one yet because of pain and just feeling funny about a stranger being all up in my business. I’ve been trying to talk myself into doing it until I hear about another painful experience from someone.
LOL That’s totally understandable! Thanks for reading!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! I haven’t had a bikini wax in years(due to the pain), this is great to know!
I’m too self conscious to get a bikini wax even though I’ve always wanted to try one. The pain factor is also a big deterrent but a 4 isn’t that bad. Once I get over my anxiety of disrobing at this size I’ll try one. Glad you had a good experience. (I’m not entering the giveaway, just supporting your content)
Hey Quinda! Thank you so much for reading and supporting. 🙂
Thank you for sharing, Char! I’ve only tried waxing two times. Didn’t really think it was worth the pain and price…and I hate when the hair starts to grow back. But after reading this I may give it a try again…and try the hard wax. This is the first time I’ve heard of it. 🙂
Thanks for reading Amber! And yes you have to try this place. I used to the think the same…not worth the pain or the price. But this place changed my mind. 🙂
Hi Amber, you are the winner of our $50 Gift Card Giveaway! CONGRATS!! We will be emailing you soon with next steps. 🙂 Thanks again for reading and commenting!
