Choose Sugaring over Waxing

I did my due diligence research to obtain information for the best possible sugaring technician in Medicine Hat, as I did not want to go back to any more painful wax treatments and believed there was a better solution than waxing. I wanted to know the sugaring technicians experience, thoroughness, cleanliness, cost and product quality. After doing an initial telephone interview with Charlene at First Impression Salon, I booked a French bikini appointment with her. She did a fantastic sugaring job, using highly recommended “Alexandria” products and I was completely comfortable. So comfortable and impressed in fact, that I decided to continue regular appointments for Brazilian sugaring and now also full leg! (I never, never, ever thought I could possibly be comfortable enough to proceed with a Brazilian - but you too will feel completely comfortable with Charlene). The experience is very respectful and thorough. Personally, I would never choose to go back to wax treatments. Sugaring is far less painful, no redness, no tenderness and rarely ever an ingrown hair (only if I don’t properly exfoliate between appointments)! This salon is exceptionally clean and the staff are very down-to-earth friendly. I had never heard of this salon and had never met any staff prior to my first visit. I am very happy to have discovered the “best kept secret salon in Medicine Hat”!!!! You will too!

Spectacular Service 

Charlene's sugaring services are absolutely SPECTACULAR, and here's why: 

– She is the first ever technician I have ever been to that has products on hand to holistically take care of your skin pre- and post-sugaring, and the products and her sugaring services in general are reasonably priced (you get a punch card for some of the products too)! 

– She takes her time = very little to no redness, swelling, or complications such as ingrown hairs or infected pores!

– She is a wonderful person who made me feel extremely comfortable with the process of hair removal, and is totally okay with sitting in silence for a bit so she can concentrate and you can enjoy your experience (yes she makes it possible to actually enjoy a sugaring experience)!!! 

I recommend her 10/5 (obviously not enough stars on here), so just thank yourself and go ASAP!

Great Suggestions from the Stylist

I am soooo happy with my haircut done by Meagan. It has been a very long time where a hair stylist has made suggestions as to what style(s) would suit me and what the best products are for my fine hair. I will look forward to making an appointment with Meagan for another haircut as well as a pedicure. I am so happy I decided to 'drop in' last Friday! See you again soon.

Incredible Facial

Just wanted to let everyone know what an incredible facial I had from Shelley again last night. She is highly-qualified, very informative and awesome with microdermabrasion. Also with the Ahhhhhh Facial is the hot stone foot and leg massage, soooo great, highly recommend her for any type of facial. So great to have a high-quality facial, finally!! Also superior products were used and explained to me. I recommend the Diamond Elite package you save money. Thank you Shelley my skin feels amazing.

Body Sugaring is Less Painful!

As a new client at First Impression, I can now say that I love Alexandria body sugaring. The technique provides excellent results and has been my best hair removal experience, even better than body sugaring I've had done in the past. It's surprisingly much less painful than any other method I've tried, including waxing and laser treatments. Charlene provides a clean, bright and inviting atmosphere; it really makes you feel welcome. I definitely won't hesitate to recommend this place!

Painless Hair Removal

I've had bikini waxes before, but the pain has always been too much to even consider a Brazilian. Until I found Charlene! Her technique is amazing. The bikini wasn't painful at all, so it was only a small step to go to a Brazilian. It's amazing!

Relaxed Atmosphere

My husband Willie and I have been going to Charlene for years. We appreciate her knowledge of her hairdressing craft and how she likes to stay updated with all the newest cuts and colour trends. I trust her with a high prized possession: my hair!

First Impression is a very professional and relaxed atmosphere where I feel pampered. Thank you, Charlene; keep up the great work.

The Results are Excellent

I love the environment at First Impression, it’s relaxing. Charlene and the staff do an excellent job making me comfortable and relaxed each time I go. When I am there for a hair appointment Charlene is always offering water and coffee, she also has an awesome massage chair that you can sit on while you are waiting for the hair colour to set. You are getting a free massage while getting your hair coloured. It’s awesome. I also have had gel nails done at First impression plus body sugaring. I will never go back to the razor again. The results are excellent, very impressive. There is so much that First Impression has to offer, I definitely recommend this place to everyone.

Two Thumbs Up!

I had a friend recommend Charlene when I was talking about my last Brazilian and having to do my own hair removal after my appointment and I am so glad that she did! Charlene takes the extra time to ensure you are happy with the result and goes above and beyond for customer satisfaction! Her products are also superior and were much less painful than my prior experiences; she is also very friendly and makes you feel relaxed. I wouldn’t hesitate in passing on this recommendation!
