Today I’m telling you about my experience at Delete, a multiple store chain of professional wax salons in the Netherlands. And I also have a special giveaway for you!
I was recently invited to have a go at the waxing treatments offered at Delete. This was my first experience at a salon in The Netherlands, and so I was quite curious to see how it would go!
I have been to waxing salons for years. Coming from a southern, warm country, waxing has always been part of my routine. I prefer waxing to other hair removal methods simply because it is fast and I can achieve a long lasting result (~4 weeks). On the other hand, waxing it is still an affordable method compared to laser removal, for example, something I haven’t tried yet for being a bit out of the budget.
Open since 2010, Delete has now 10 wax salons all over the country. One of these happens to be in Utrecht and this is where I did my treatments. The appointment can be done in person, by phone or on their website. I booked my appointment online, a bit in advance, as their agenda is quite full.
I was first met by the receptionist and invited to enjoy a cup of coffee/tea while waiting for my turn; this lasts no longer than 5 minutes. I was then introduced to my waxing angel, the lady who would take care of me for the next 15/20 min. The waxing professionals employed at Delete are trained at their own academy, receiving then the title of wax angels. They are incredibly professional, answer all your questions and make sure you feel comfortable during your treatment.
I really enjoyed my treatment. It was quick and easy, but then again it wasn’t the first time for me. The first times you may feel a bit more pain, but it’s worth the result! In any case, the angels will guide you through the process and give you advice on how to take good care of your skin. I also had nothing to worry in the hygiene department. They wear gloves and masks, and the salon is clean and well maintained.
Overall, I had a really good impression from Delete and will be back soon. Finding a good salon is like finding a good hairdresser. It’s all about trust! I found that all the staff were very professional and took their job seriously. And this for me is important. Yes, it is just hair removal, but doing it well and in a professional, efficient way matters!
