I love Venus! They make getting a wax so easy and painless, and the receptionist is very nice and competent. You can usually get a same day appointment, so they are great for a last minute treat. The mani/pedi special is a great deal, and they have tons of colors to choose from. The spa itself is clean and laid back, no uppity attitudes- you can relax and enjoy without feeling like everyone is in your business. All of the employees are professional, very polite, and great at the services they provide. Definitely check it out when you need some beauty tlc!!

Always a Pleasure!
I get my waxing and mani/pedis here. It is super clean, the receptionist is very friendly, and everyone is experienced and nice. Venus uses the best wax that never burns, and the $40 mani/pedi Student Special on Monday and Tuesday is amazing!! I can usually get an appointment as soon as I need it, but call ahead just to make sure (865-7112, i have it programmed). I would recommend this spa to everyone, especially girls on the go who need a quick pick me up!!

I have always been happy with all of the services offered at Venus. Recently, I have been growing out my eyebrows, and Linda did the absolute best job shaping them. Gladys came in to offer her advice with the new, thicker shape, and I was so happy with the end results. Linda really took her time and did a great job, and only charged me for the regular price when I know it went over by at least 15 minutes. I think that Venus really knows what they are doing, and would recommend this spa to everyone!!

I just moved back to the University area, and am so glad I am even closer to Venus Experience. I can always get an appointment at Venus, even on the same day. Their prices have NOT gone up in the past few years, and I am always happy with my services.
LInda is the best eyebrow and bikini waxer I have ever gone to, and Gladys and Bianca are wonderful with mani/pedis! Venus has a ton of nail polish colors, and their space is very open and relaxing. Mercedes is one of the nicest people I have ever met!
Venus has saved me time and time again when I have events come up, or just need a little pick me up. You will not be disappointed if you give Venus a try!

I could not call what I got at Venus Experience a Brazilian wax. 1) I was so irritated afterward that my skin starting peeling, which has never happened before (and got waxed in Brazil for many years). 2) No Brazilian would ever use strip wax. Brazilians use hard wax that doesn't need strips. I have not yet found a salon in New Orleans that actually uses this wax, which is much less painless and much better for the skin. Unfortunately the strip wax is cheaper so many salons do not buy it.

Venus Experience is GREAT. Linda is amazing--I go every 4 weeks and am never disappointed. She's extremely fast and nearly painless, and always does an excellent job. Mercedes was also good but Linda was faster and hers seem to last longer.
The prices are not too high for the quality of service and it's always easy to get an appointment. You can probably walk in pretty easily but I'd call ahead just to make sure.
Don't bother trying anywhere else, just go to Venus Experience and ask for Linda!

I recently moved from Louisiana to Dallas TX. Linda used to do my bikini waxing and eyebrown...... Now, here in Dallas, I have been for two years trying to find a place where I can get a great wax.... Really dont care about pricing......... I just need a professional place....... I have not find it yet.... Everytime I go to Louisiana I go to Venus to get all my waxing done there............... I highly recommend to make appointments ahead of time...........

I just got my eyebrows waxed by Mercedes at Venus Experience, and it was like she'd never attempted to wax eyebrows before. After tentatively putting a few tiny dabs of cool wax on my eyebrows and taking them off at a weird, ineffective angle, she began tweezing them. When I told her I'd prefer more waxing to tweezing, she said something about broken hairs being too short--if they were broken, she broke them, because I hadn't had a wax in a month, and I certainly hadn't touched my eyebrows in the intermittent period.
After it was all over, she rubbed my eyebrows, harshly, over and over with her fingers until I had to ask her to stop--it hurt, and she wasn't applying anything soothing, just rubbing them! I just got home and looked in the mirror, and my entire brow is red and puffy. Yuck, seriously.
I've gone to Venus once before, when my eyebrows were waxed by Bianca, and she did a perfectly serviceable job. Seriously, though, if I were more courageous/more obnoxious, I'd go back and give them a piece of my mind. I'm in pain, and I look gremlin-esque. Don't go!

I'm new to the area and I went here after reading some positive reviews and found that they were right and it's a great place to get your eyebrows or any other wax done. Maria was very experienced, gentle, nice, and I also noticed they use a higher end wax for sensitive skin. It's hard to find a good place to get your eyebrows done well and the way you like it. She listened to me and she took her time to do a good job. I was very happy and I will be going again. She says she only works Mondays though which could be a little inconvenient for some people but I'm sure they have other girls that do a good job as well. :)

I was a Tulane student and went to Venus for all of my waxing and manicure/pedicure needs. Gladys is amazing. Her brazilians are painless and her manicures DO NOT CHIP. I've never had a manicure last so long it's crazy. It's walking distance from Tulane and you can pretty much always get an appointment. Call a day in advance to make sure. A little expensive but definately worth it.

I was disappointed with the waxing services at Venus, especially considering this salon was highly recommended by my peers and on internet review sties. I'm a 4yr nola resident. Recently I had just returned to nola after living in L.A. for a few months, where I regularly got brazilians from a phenomenal waxer there (Painless Waxing by Larissa) who did an exceptional job, there was minimal pain involved, and her services were cheaper than at Venus ($35 vs $45, crazy considering everything in L.A. is usually a lot more expensive!).
Pros: I was able to get in quickly at Venus without an appointment, their customer service was fine, their shop seemed clean.
Cons: The worst brazilian I have ever received. ""Quick"" service was a euphemism for rushed, it was quite painful, the wax was too hot and probably burned my skin a little, and the general atmosphere was very uncomfortable - the waxer Gladys hardly said two words, the room was too hot especially with the spotlight; all just increasing the discomfort of the actual wax. The rooms are partitioned but not completely closed off near the ceiling, so you can hear people in other rooms. Gladys was nice enough, but I was very unsatisfied. When my skin finally recovered a few days later (it's ridiculous to have to wait that long), it was finally evident that the quality was poor - there were a lot of stray hairs left, which normal waxers typically tweeze as they are working.
I decided to try Venus again, thinking maybe I just had one bad experience. I hoped that the receptionist could recommend a more skilled waxer. When I called, the woman who answered the phone did not speak English well, and was not able to answer any of my questions. When I kept asking for the name of the professional to perform the waxing service (to make sure it was someone other than Gladys), she kept replying ""brazilian."" I continue to be frustrated with this salon and the quality of waxing service available in New Orleans.

Venus Experience is the best place to get a bikini and eyebrow wax in the South. Period.
The manicure/pedicure special is a great deal and takes about half the time as a usual mani/pedi. The services are NOT overpriced, and the spa is very clean. Everyone girl who I know in the city who is happy with her waxing goes to Venus.

My experience at Venus was and is always the best. excellent service and very friendly people. I love their cleanness. They have great specials for students like their pedicure and manicure on mondays, tuesdays and wednesdays for only $40. You can search all around the city, but you will never find a place where they charge $40 for their bikini waxes(Brazilian, american or play boy). In five to ten minutes Linda finish her singnature Brazilian wax that last for 3 to 4 weeks. Mercedes' Facials are the best and Gladys' massages will leave you in heaven. I also love Gladys' and Mercedes' pedicures(Great finishing touch). They have a very convinience schedule from Monday through Saturdays 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The Venus Experience also have their own Boutique with very good prices. Venus Atmosphere is great for relaxing and they offer couples massages. they don't only offer services to female customers, but also for males. I highly recommend The Venus Experience to everyone in the city of New Orleans.

the overall services provided are ok. the bikini waxes by gladys are the best. the group of women are friendly, but, you have to wait awhile to be seen. i have not been serviced by any other ladies in the salon, but, i expect their services to be good as well. the nail services are good, but, again, gladys is the best. the prices have gone up so they are a bit over priced, as i see mostly students traveling through the doors who would be better served with better prices. I don't really consider this a day spa, but, more a waxing salon. the cottage is cute, but, it is a shot gun and very noisy. i used to go there to a woman by the name of Carmen who was great, but, is no longer because she opened her own salon around the corner on hampson, but, all the ladies are pretty good.
