"As a man in Philadelphia, needing certain things "waxed" leads to awkward online searches and asking of friends for recommendations. For months, I had gone to another place in center city due to it being recommended on Yelp especially for men, and thought everything was fine but not the most pleasant or easy experience.
Cue another Yelp search, and finding Silk & Kristen. WORLDS apart, and such a great experience, anyone and everyone should set up a time and schedule anything here with her. What used to be awkward and messy, is now a fun (yes, really) and easy experience, and Kristen is a pleasure to be around. End up laughing the whole time, and come out with no strange residues, no need for helping her position things, OR any pain. I'm still not sure how that's possible, but she knows her stuff.
Even better, the first time I scheduled, I made a mistake on her website and booked for the next week without knowing it. Showed up wondering where everyone was, she came back, and not only was very friendly, but found a way to fit me in later that day anyway. Must visit, MEN or WOMEN, in Philly.

"I gave 4 stars instead of 5 only because I've never gotten a body wax service before, and I can't honestly compare if I don't know, but for first timers, I STRONGLY recommend going to see Kristen at Silk. She made me comfortable, minimized the pain, and was so super friendly and awesome....The studio is on a quiet block in a very nice south Philly neighborhood. Kristine's offices are warm and welcoming, private, and a mix of a spa's upscale decor with a doctors office level of professionalism. She is knowledgeable in her field and very good at what she does. We discussed different techniques, hygiene, waxing do's and don't s, after care, followups,... then we talked about tv shows, boyfriends, career goals, everything lol. I don't think I could have made a better choice in my search for a great first time Brazilian and full leg wax. I am definitely going to back again in 4-6 weeks."

Kristen did a wonderful job on my brows! She is meticulous!! Even though I'm willing to endure pain for great brows, here I didn't have to! I don't know how she did it but I have never had such a pain-free waxing before. I booked my next appointment before I walked out the door.

I got a full Brazilian Wax from Kristen. It was the most comfortable wax that I ever received. Kristen is the ultimate professional and a super nice person. It was a very enjoyable experience. She did the best job ever. I will certainly be back in a month. Prices are very reasonable too.

My boyfriend and I both came for Brazilians today. Studio is small and cozy, clean and nicely decorated. We were very happy with the services - Kristen did a great job, she was very thorough and professional.

"I'm gonna give 5 stars because, although I never had waxing services in the U.S.A before, I believe in general concept is the same: Kristen knows what she's doing, she is considerate and carefull towards you and the process, very nice sweet and well manners, you can tell she really focus on you and on what shes doing, but on top of it all: she has magical techniques!... I never had any waxing as pain-free as I did with her, which is shocking considering I have low tolerance to pain. It hurted WAY less than any other time I've waxed before in my life.
I've been carefully looking for a new place to wax after moving to the USA and I believe I found it.
Oh yeah and the chocolate smell from the wax is really good :p"
