Taylor and the owner (can't recall her name - she only did my eyebrows once - but probably the best they have ever looked) are both very talented. I'm a really nice guy but I'm an annoying client which is embarrassing to admit - alas, true. I am super picky and very detailed when it comes to things like my eyebrows when I get them done. When I lived in New York I got them done by a famous woman on Fifth Avenue and she sucks compared to the two women I mentioned from The Waxing Room. As long as I am in Chicago I will be returning here. I am so used to stuffy Fifth Avenue that I judged Taylor and I seriously wanted to hug her when I saw how great of a job she did. Both women are also very easy to gab with and have a relaxing tone and fun sense of humor. Since I'm a guy they both kept showing me how much they were about to take off. In general a totally professional experience and I look great every time.
My first time ever getting a Brazilian. I was recommended to go to The Waxing Room. The moment I walked in I knew my experience would be awesome. I was greeted immediately and provided them with my information. Soon after, Sabrina took me to the room and talked me through the event. It was painful but bearable. She gave me in-depth information and suggested a product for after care treatment. I felt fine afterwards and will definitely come back in the future!
I just relocated to Chicago from San Diego and was not looking forward to establishing a new salon. I was in and out quickly and everyone was friendly.
I've only had one appointment here so far, but I will definitely be going back!
I loved this place. My Brazilian wax wasn't 100% painless but that's expected and it looked great and the staff was very friendly.
I recently moved to chicago and needed to find a place to get my eyebrows waxed. I did a touch up at the Waxing room and I was really impressed. The cost was $20 and the lady who did my waxing took her time. She was detailed and friendly. The atmosphere in the place is nice, the music was perfect and the staff was really polite. The place is really clean too. Will go back again.
LOVE THE WAXING ROOM! I've been going for over a year and I love it. I first started going because of a Groupon for a brazilian wax. I was scared because I'd never had one before but Mariana made me so comfortable. Not painless, it's waxing, it hurts! But she's so fast and so good that the pain is not a problem. Getting in and out in 15 minutes is amazing. She's so sweet too, she'll just chat you up while she's doing her thing and it makes it such an enjoyable experience. Totally worth every penny, I'll never go anywhere else, and I'm DELIGHTED to not have to shave anymore!
I started going here when I actually lived in the area. This place, though pricier, is totally penny. I have found my regular eyebrow waxer, her name is Marianna, she is absolutely perfect. She is gentle and never rushes through. She asks questions and is honest about what your eyebrows are capable of. I appreciate honesty about scruples about what I want and what I can have.
I have had a few artistic Brazilians and they have been as close to pleasant as they can be when someone is pouring hot wax on your lady parts, and then ripping it off. Regardless, I don't keep up on the waxing down below.
Oh, and bonus, after 10 waxes, the 11th is free! Total surprise and completely awesome. Bring cash as you can not tip on your card, which is standard for a lot of salons

I've been going to The Waxing Room for a little over 2 years now and really love this place. I wanted to try bikini waxing a few years back and am so happy I started here. If I had had a bad experience somewhere it would have totally turned me off. I figured I'd go to a place that specializes in only waxing. The salon is clean and the staff is friendly. I've gone to many of it's waxers at one point or another, bit I adored Lynda because she was friendly and fun to talk with making the experience much easier. When you are getting your nether regions waxed you want to feel comfortable. Lynda is not longer there, but Cheryl Ann is also really good. I've tried both bikini and Brazilian waxing as well as eyebrow and lip wax and have been very satisfied with each service. I've never had a bad experience here and suggest this place to all of my friends.
They do accept credit cards, but tips need to be left in cash. I also usually make an appointment, but haven't had much issue getting a last minute appointment.

I first walked in at the waxing room because I was in desperate need to get my eyebrows done. I got set-up with Ana right away. I just loved it... it was the least painfull eyebrown job l have ever had. She was very friendly, knowledgeable and fast. I decided to go back for a brazilian... I asked for Ana again... it was awesome!! I am so glad I have found this place... it is really close to where I live... Two thumbs up!
