Michelle L., Quincy - 10/11/2013
I came into Ess Aar today with great trepidation: my first full-on Brazilian bikini wax. After hearing a few personal horror stories, I was extremely hesitant to try waxing but really, really needed an alternative to painful shaving.
Let me put it like this: prior to today? I did not have a Yelp account. I MADE this account because Ridi (apologies if I misspell her name) was so incredibly kind, approachable and amazing at her job that she made me WANT to Yelp. Not physically though; Ridhi verbally prepared me for every move she was making. She was constantly asking if I was comfortable, if the wax was the right temperature. By the time we'd made it most of the way through, she and I were chatting and LAUGHING. Yes, I actually laughed as she waxed my pubic area. Because Ridhi is the kind of person who knows how awkward and intimate a Brazilian can be-- and she knows how to behave so that it's not creepy or oddly depersonalized. Despite the discomfort of the waxing, I actually had FUN.
I left wanting to have tea with this woman. I will return any time, for any of their extremely reasonably priced beauty options, and not simply because it's local, clean, brightly lit and comparatively cheap, but because I felt like I was being treated like a person.

I go to Ess Aar for facials for two reasons: one - they make my skin the best it's been, and two - they are the most relaxing thing ever! Ess Aar is very knowledgeable about which products will be the most helpful to your skin. Everything she has recommended I try at home, can be found at Target inexpensively. Pumpkin enzyme facials are the best and I have seen huge improvements since going here! They list prices and services online, and they are totally worth trying!

The staff at this salon really make an effort to make sure you are as comfortable as can be during treatment. They are all very kind and deliver impeccable customer service. As a customer who walked in nervous and unsure, I walked out as a satisfied and changed customer with a big smile on my face.

Amazing facial & personalized care, best salon on South Shore!
Elaine K., South Weymouth - 7/27/2013
Five star ?? YES !!!! I went to Ess Aar Salon and had a back facial, something I did not know even existed. I am so hooked, this facial was an experience of a lifetime. Not only does it serve as a facial it is also a massage, and with hot stones added , I was in heaven!!!! If you have never had one you are so missing out . Sensational !!!!
Every one was really nice. I plan to go back
Great service! Nice and clean salon.

Went in today and couldn't have been happier. Ridhi was so sweet and accommodating, and she knows what she's doing. I have very sensitive skin and I'm usually such a cry baby when it comes to brazilians, but I was surprised at how painless this one was. She was super thorough and had me in a couple different...ahem...positions to make sure she got everything.
I had of course checked the yelp reviews before I went, so I decided I had to try the threading as well. I'm still mystified by how it actually works, but all I know is that in about 5 minutes I had perfectly sculpted eyebrows with very little redness. And the best part? $10.
If you live on the south shore, and even if you don't (i dont) it's worth the trip.
Jenna R., North Weymouth - 7/20/2013
It was my first time experiencing Brazilian wax so the worker was very accommodating and very patient with me. Helped me feel comfortable. It was an excellent experience. Very welcoming environment as well. I'd definitely go back.
Gabrielle M., Hudson NH - 7/17/2013
I walked right in when I was in town for an eyebrow thredding and they took me right away and I was soo happy with the outcome. My eyebrows looked great! And it only cost me $10! I was very impressed with the service and I would love to go back there sometime :)
The workers were very warm and patient. The prices are reasonable. The environment is also welcoming.
Mary O'B. - 7/16/2013
The esthetician was amazing. Facial was great. I also had my eyebrows done. The whole experience was fabulous!!!!!
Ridhi was absolutely wonderful. She took me as a last minute appointment and made me feel completely comfortable. Ridhi was meticulous in her work, and spent the time necessary to nix each and every hair. I will certainly be returning to Ess Aar beauty salon!
K.C., Needham - 6/12/2013
Absolutely amazing! Ridhi was friendly, kind, soothing and thorough! My third-ever Brazilian was easy and as painless as the procedure could be! I honestly couldn't believe how little it hurt, especially when considering how much the first two had hurt. I will absolutely be returning.
Kimberly B., Rockland - 6/7/2013
I went in today for my first Brazilian wax after discovering the place on groupon. They were very welcoming as I walked in, and I decided to give threading a shot while I waited. This was also my first experience with threading, My eyebrows came out incredible, and as she was doing it she explained in detail why threading was good. She also helped calm my nerves about my first brazilian! Great experience!
As for the brazilian! I was expecting it to be very painful after seeing the dramatic wax scenes in movies such as miss congeniality. It hurt a little as expected, but not half as bad! My waxer was very comforting and careful. She made my horrific thoughts disappear!
Overall i had a great experience and I would recommend this place to anyone!
Shauna C., Braintree - 4/30/2013
I live in the Braintree are and out of convenience I am guilty of going to the threading spa at the Plaza when I needed my eyebrows done. They always did a horrible job but like I said it was convenient.
After years of tweezing away my eyebrows I wanted to grow them and shape them for my upcoming wedding. I stumbled upon Ess Aar and will not go anywhere else after going here! Ridhi does an amazing job and takes her time. She will not let you leave the chair until everything is perfect. She is very personable and makes the threading experience painless! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BUSINESS TO EVERYONE!!! She's awesome!
Kelly G., Rockland - 3/26/2013
Fantastic threading spa, best I've been to in MA. Prices are great, the staff is always so friendly. I used to dread going to get my eyebrows done, and I now look forward to it. Ridhi is very talented and makes the threading process painless! They have many services I look forward to taking advantage of such as henna hair treatments, tattoos, and a variety of facials. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!
G.B., Randolph - 3/22/2013
A GEM of a salon, with a warm & friendly atmosphere, excellent prices, and superb service. Ridhi and Patricia are wonderful women who truly care about their clients. Bravo!!
Robin M., Walpole - 2/22/2013
I've been going to Ess Aar pretty much since they opened. Ridhi does a fabulous job - much much better than those spas in the malls. I can call anytime and she's there for me. The salon is warm and welcoming - Ridhi is as sweet as can be.

I cannot say enough nice things about the owner, Ridhi. I get my eyebrows threaded here. She does a fantastic job.
The best part of going to Ess Aar is Ridhi; herself! She is such a nice person and funny!. There was a time I called the Salon and her associate said she had stepped away. The associate called her at home and she came right to the shop just to do my eyebrows!
I have gotten a facial here too from Patricia...felt great and my skin was so soft afterwards.
She has added more services since she fist opened...massage, waxing, Henna Tattoos, eyelash extensions. Prices are very reasonable.
Hidden treasure! Go!...you won't be disappointed!
Highly recommend Ess Aar.
S.B., Braintree - 1/20/2013
They are excellent here! so kind and friendly, such a breath of fresh air. The prices are more than reasonable and the threading and waxing was painless! I would recommend this to everyone!
