This was my very first Brazilian Wax experience. Apree did a phenomenal job, & made my experience well worth it. I did my research and watched countless videos on YouTube of other people’s first experiences and I must say, my first experience here at Lela’s Virtue Lounge was like heaven compared to what I had heard. Thank you for making this smooth..it was not horrific as I expected. I will be coming back for sure!

I was referred to Matisse by a friend of mine and honey when I tell you she is the sweetest person! She is extremely awesome! This was my first facial. I wish I would have came sooner. She was very welcoming And answered all my questions without a problem! I’m a forever customer now! Can’t wait for my next facial.

I had a great experience. Matisse was great. I went for eyebrow wax but I will be back to try other things. I will continue to see her for sure for eyebrow waxing!

I seen Apree for the first time for a Brazilian wax and I definitely will be back. She is so welcoming and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. Very relaxing environment!

This was my first time visiting Lela’s. On top of that, this was my post COVID restrictions wax (ouch). Danielle was the one who provided my service. She was AMAZING and extremely gentle given the circumstances! She gave me great tips for aftercare and relaxation during my service. The salon was clean and felt very welcoming. I will definitely be back for more services.

After the "I Want It All Deluxe" facial, my face truly feels rejuvenated! I've had facials in the past at other salons but none of those experiences compare! My favorite aspect of the facial services is how each facial is personalized to your current skincare needs. Matisse was very personable, friendly, and open to answering all of my skin care questions (as are all the staff members). The environment is peaceful and perfect for relaxation during a facial. I would definitely recommend and can't wait to return!

I’ve had a brazilin wax completed by Apree and she’s very professional and knows what she is doing. She makes you feel welcomed and she minimized the amount of pain that I felt. She made sure the wax was the appropriate temperature for me and let me know when to breath deeply. I will continue to work with her in the future. I would also recommend her for any of your waxing needs.

The best facial experience I’ve ever had, I definitely will be back!

Once you find an amazing esthetician, your life literally changes. You confidence goes up by 50points, you think clearer and you’re overall energy is renewed. Appree is my oasis in the middle of a sand storm and visiting her at the lounge for my monthly cosmetic needs has become a necessity in my life. Apree is clean, timely, professional, fun, honest and reliable. I send everyone male and female to her and we all have the same appreciation for her. Her services are amazing and I wouldn’t want anyone else tending to my cosmetic needs. Book with Apree, you will be glad you did!

I have now received 3 facials from Matisse and they have all been wonderful. I just love how kind and is and the calm environment she creates. She is great in educating me about the “do’s and don’ts” of skin care. Everytime I leave I feel so relaxed and my skin is so thankful for her services. I highly recommend going to see Matisse.

From the moment I walked into her establishment, Matisse was so warm and inviting. It was my first facial ever, and she made sure I knew exactly what was going on and that I continued my skin care after leaving. I have just left my second facial with Matisse, and I am still so very pleased with her professionalism, expertise and guidance.

I’ve been following her on social media for months and wanting to get something done (so many options!). I finally booked a simple appointment for an eyebrow and lip wax. Matisse made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in. The environment is very relaxing. She’s confident in her skills and it shows in her work. In this 1 short session, I could tell she is passionate about her craft. The wax she used didn’t irritate my skin which is very rare. The lip wax didn’t hurt nearly as much as it does elsewhere and I love my eyebrows. I will definitely be back for these and other services.

Listen - Brazillian waxes are never going to feel *good*. And your sensitive pubic-area skin is never going to *love* having all the little hairs yanked out of it. HOWEVER: compared to all the waxes I've ever gotten, I had THE most comfortable experience with Matisse AND my skin reacted the absolute least after the wax (i.e. just a couple little bumps that went away quickly, instead of a full-fledged, angry, bikini-area breakout). I used to go to EWC but I don't think I'll ever go back there now that I have seen how lovely it can be. Not to mention, the spa environment is way more relaxing at LVL! I am so happy with the results of my Brazillian wax with Matisse and definitely plan to be back again (may or may not have purchased a package the same day of my first wax -- she's that good.

From the moment I walked into her Virtue Lounge until I left, I felt super relaxed and at ease. Her establishment is so warm and inviting, it’s just pure perfection. Matisse is by far one of the most amazing estheticians I’ve met! Her passion speaks louder than words, she’s knowledgeable, personable, professional and fantastic at what she does! The time and detail she puts into every one of her appointments is so incredible and my skin not only glows like magic, but is rejuvenated. I am blessed to have experienced such an outstanding facial service with Matisse ( microdermabrasion/hydro jelly mask/high frequency) and my skin is oh so happy!

"My first time meeting Matisse was when I went to get an eyebrow wax from her. She did a phenomenal job & was so friendly & helpful. She was very good at explaining each thing she was doing to my face, and broke it down to a language I could understand. Just after visiting her 2 times, I already can tell a difference in my skin and I cannot wait to feel completely comfortable in my own skin! She also helped to make me feel more confident in myself. I highly recommend her to not just women, but men as well! I am so happy to have found a consistent & reliable girl for anything I need done!"

"Matisse was so easy to work with, from scheduling availability to educating me about the different services available. I truly feel like I am in the best hands for the skincare results I want."
-Helen Pang | June 2018
"I was debating on getting lashes for almost a year now! I wanted to go to someone that I trusted and not throw away a ton of money just in case I didn't like them. Matisse made my first experience amazing! Not only did she do a great job on making my lashes look natural but the whole experiences was very relaxing. I recently got my first fill and it was super quick and they just keep looking better every time. If you are looking for someone to trust, someone who cares, and someone easy to talk to, Matisse is your girl! I highly recommend her and a ton of my girlfriends have already booked appointments! xoxo"

"As a client of FacebyTisse since March of 2018, I highly recommend Matisse and her business for all of your esthetician needs.
From dermaplaning and microdermabrasion facials to eyelash extensions, Matisse provided me with excellent care and professionalism. Her product/industry knowledge, ability to explain the procedures in an easily understood manner, made me feel comfortable and at ease.
I always look forward to my sessions with Matisse, as she is kind, positive and a fun person to interact with! FacebyTisse can be found on Instragram for a complete list of services she provides. You won't be disappointed!"
-Hattie Goplen | May 2018
"Matisse was extremely professional from the moment I walked in, to the moment I walked out. I never felt uncomfortable during any part of the facial as she explained everything that was going on and what she was about to do. She is very sweet and and has some big goals she wants to accomplish after she becomes a licensed esthetician. I %100 support her and I highly recommend seeing her for all your skin care needs!"
