Most places say they adhere to strict hygiene standard and they really aren’t. If you have ever had a file or buffer block that’s been reused and they say it was sterilized –That’s a lie (nothing with a gritty surface can be safely cleaned). If they don’t toss their wax sticks out after it’s been dipped-that’s really dangerous. If you have ever been soaked in a pedi throne with jets- these are near impossible to clean.… We know Health and Safety is or should be the #1 concern in our industry- That’s why we are so crazy about it.
Double dipping is one of the most dangerous waxing practices and it happens all the time. Just imagine the guest before you had a Brazilian and but waxed and you’re up next for an upper lip wax. If you’ve been to a place that double dips all those germs and nastiness could be spread on you (literally) Dead cells, hair, bacteria, fungus, fecal matter, blood, mucous, discharge. With double dipping it’s all going back in the wax pot. Other unsavory practices to be wary about and happens all the time unfortunately. Laundering wax strips. Some places just toss them in with the towels, all the body fluids. Blood, and pubic hair is merely rinsed off. Reheating Hard Wax. Yep, once it heats up they just shim off the hairs floating on top.
You never know who’s touching what when we’re not in the room .We dislike cross contamination. We spray down every hard surface with a product designed to eliminate fungal, bacterial and viral infections- meaning doorknobs, light switches, beds and counter. Bed paper, manicure linens, nail files, buffers, paper flip flops, mascara wands, it all gets tossed and of course all towels are laundered. Every Time.
We get waxing your nether regions while exhilarating-via getting you natural endorphin high. It’s not as relaxing as a facial so we equipped our waxing room with music or TV so you can take your mind off your wax job and on the latest episode of Real Housewives. We also retail numbing products

No we won’t be the cheapest place or the most expensive place in town to get your mani/pedi on- but we will be the Best and not just in terms of our service quality but in our business practices. You will never get a mani/pedi for $30 dollars here, that’s because our costs are significantly higher. We pay livable wages, we invest in education, we do not reuse materials from one person to the next and we use the best products on the market. Other places can discount to such crazy rates because the usually employing poor labour standards and taking avoidable risks with your health- all just to get you in the door.

Most Nail salons and wax bars put their newbies on the floor straight away. At Totally Polished U each of our Esthetic Experts goes through an intense amount of re-education (since they are always already certified nail techs and Estheticians) in our TPU curriculum before they can ever be approved to perform services on our guests. We are extremely picky in how we do nails and other services.
