I have been going to Shelly for the past 2.5 years now and I have just recently realized how talented she is in not just waxing (although she is the BEST Waxer)! She gives phenomenal Facials too! They are so highly effective and they repaired my super sensitive fussy skin right away. She is soooo incredibly skilled and knowledgeable. She does use only the best herbal remedies and most natural and highest grade products on the market. I did my research!
Her Makeup Artistry skills are superb as well!
I have recommended my friends, husband, mom and dad to her and they all love her!
Mena the RMT that works with Shelly is also the best RMT I have ever had! and I'm picky. Definitely try her Organic Scrub/wrap/hot stone combo! Pure Heaven!
Excited to try the CND Shellac Manicure next!

I got married this past August, and Shelly was my makeup artist. She was professional, courteous and did a fantastic job. I have acne prone and sensitive skin, and Shelly was able to make my face look flawless that day. The products she used did not irritate my skin and I did not break out after all the makeup came off. Shelly was also the makeup artist for my bridesmaids and mother and she was able to accommodate for all their different skin types and was able to make everyone look gorgeous!! Our schedule was tight the morning of the wedding, and Shelly was able to transform all of us into princesses with out having us to stress about the time!
We all got lots of praises throughout the day, and now it is my turn to give Shelly my praises. Great job!!! Me and my bridesmaids all highly recommend Shelly!!! She is wonderful.

I've been going to Shelly for waxing and facials for the last 8 years and I must say that she's the BEST! Everytime I try someone else (only b/c I get gift certificates or I'm out of town doing a photoshoot), I realize again just how truly amazing she is! No one can compare to her skill & care. I am a body builder, so I'm always tanning which makes my skin more sensitive, and Shelly just pays so much attention to detail that she can protect my skin so well during waxing sessions! It barely even hurts!! I can sleep through my waxing sessions now! lol.
My skin is phenomenal due to her High-Performance facials which I can't live without every month. I highly recommend her to everyone! She is the BEST Esthetician! March 2009

After trying a few different waxers i was so happy to finally find Shelly. Unlike many of the others she is extremely gentle and makes you feel very comfortable. I go to her for all of my waxing. The studio is clean and she is flexible with bookings. After going to Shelly's beauty services i can honestly say i will never go anywhere else and would be more then happy to recommend it anyone who's looking for a great waxer. I recently got a facial and was quite impressed with my skin. The Facial was relaxing and invigorating, the products used were wonderful. My skin is so soft and clear. I can't wait for my next facial. Thank You Shelly! March 2009

I have been a customer of Shelly’s beauty services for the past 3 months I have been using her waxing services. She is very accommodating me in regards to booking times, pays attention to every detail and every request. She is also very cheerful and friendly.Her prices are very reasonable, and I definitely feel that I am getting very good value for my money. Guys if you ever need your back, chest, or eye brows waxed, definitely give Shelly a call! March 2009

I'd love to provide a testimonial. Please see below.
"I was referred to Shelly by a friend of mine for waxing services. I am very impressed with Shelly's professionalism and customer service.Personally, I found my waxing experience to be virtually painless and the results are phenomenal! The slo-grow lotion and exfoliating gloves provided after the waxing service are welcome bonus to this fantastic experience. I would highly recommend Shelly to all of my friends, families, and anyone asking for esthetic services. -
Anita S. Mississauga March 2009
“My waxing sessions are almost pain-free, thanks to her special pre-wax treatment which protects the skin from tearing. The Mississauga home studio is very clean and well-maintained. She also takes care of her customers by providing free exfoliating kits and good tips/tricks to keep you away from unwanted hair as long as possible. Shelly, you are simply amazing!” Cheers!

I have been going to Shelly for Brazilian wax for months now. Shelly does an excellent job in no time at all. She is super friendly and is always very professional. I also appreciate the cream and an exfoliating glove she provides me at no extra charge. My boyfriend has done a facial at her home salon as well and was very pleased with the result. I cannot be happier with her services and would recommend her to everyone!
kukla ksenia GTA March 2009
I've been seeing Shelly for a Brazilian waxing on a regular basis for the past 8 or so months and she does a great job. I remember my first waxing, I was nervous but she made me feel right at home. Shelly does a great job of explaining the whole process. Her home studio is kept clean and comfy. I like the fact that she is very flexible with her appointments. If you're looking for a waxing, Shelly should definitively be at the top of your list.
Jean-Claude B. GTA March 2009
Shelly is the best Makeup Artist I know! She has done my Makeup & my Friends' Makeups numerous times. She really listens to what you want and will utilize her skills & creativity to give the most stunning looks possible. The Makeup Applications she does are also very long lasting! It lasts from day to night, no problem. She also uses the Best quality brands and ingredients so I never have to be afraid of allergic reactions. She's very professional, punctual and Courteous. Everyone should have their makeup done by her for Special Occasions!
Heidi H. North York. March 2009
Shelly keeps me lookin' good for all the ladies! We've also become friends over the last 10 years. Thank you for all your efforts!
Matt C. Uxbridge March 2009
I love coming to Shelly’s for a wax! It doesn’t hurt, I feel very comfortable. She’s very professional, preps the skin before and after waxing so my skin stays smooth for weeks. Shelly is also very hygienic with her tools. Much cleaner than all the Salons out there, so I feel good about getting waxed in her home studio. I have been coming to Shelly for a few months now and I still get excellent service.
Karen G Brampton March 2009
No one's a better Esthetician & Makeup Artist than Shelly! She has done so much for me and my whole and extended family over the last 10 years. Her rates are phenomenal and now all her products are such a great deal too!! I've been telling her for years to start selling products! This way, no one has to pay extravagant Retail prices anymore.
Jason Y. Scarborough March 2009
I had a very good experience with you, so I'd love to provide a testimonial.
I went to see Shelly for my first brazillian wax and was very nervous. She was very friendly, helping me to feel comfortable and ease my nerves. She worked quickly and efficiently, and dispensed awesome knowledge and products to get the most out of my wax. Great atmosphere and service for a great price. I'll definitely be back!

(It's my personal email with my last name, so I'd rather it not be posted on your site; but if anyone is looking for referrals you can pass along my email.)
If you’re looking for the best results visit shelly. Other places use low end Products to save on costs. Having a personal private Esthetician is great. I've never had a facial before I went to Shelly but Shelly’s place has a relaxing environment. I never thought I would be a guy who got facial but now I look forward to our appointments
Ali. Max. M Mississauga. March 2009
I like going to Shelly for my beauty services because she gives great quality at a great price. She is very knowledgeable and uses great products. I recently received a facial from her and I loved all the products she used on my skin. My skin felt so nice and hydrated afterwards. I would definitely go back to her for another facial, and I would get my waxing done there again too. She makes the waxing process as comfortable and pain free as possible. She is very professional, and I would recommend her beauty services. Thanks Shelly!
- Courtney L. Toronto. March 2009
I've been going to Shelly for a few months now, and don't plan on leaving unless I move or she does!
She takes very good care of her clients, and her waxing services are pain FREE! She is very gentle, and she is very accommodating with book appointments!
I personally love that each client has their own can of wax, and the slow-grow lotion and exfoliating glove with the visit shows her dedication to you even AFTER you leave her place!
Her waxing is painless, is very professional and such a great person to talk with!
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an esthetician!
Maggie F. Mississauga. March 2009
I used to go to Shelly only for waxing. She started telling me about facials and how good they are. I was always hesitant and didn't really believe her at first. Eventually, a year later, I tried my first Facial with her. I used to have severe acne and scarring for years. Shelly made all the acne & scarring go away within months! Now I have soft, smooth and acne free skin! I have so much more confidence now and she truly has changed my life! Thank you so much! Stan.
Stan H. Aurora March 2009
Shelly's work is great, her skin treatments are exceptional -- before and after waxing there's no pain and skin immediately glows. Her attention to detail produces comfort and results that last a long time. After a number of bad hair removal experiences, her professionalism stands out. Go, you won't be disappointed!
(John G Toronto) March 2009
I've been to a few salons for facials and can't say I was fully satisfied with the outcome. They were more concerned with pushing products and selling packages than providing the actual service. The first time I used Shelly's services wasn't for a facial it was make up for my wedding day (back in 2005) - my mom and brides maids looked beautiful. There was actually no need for any touch up as it stayed on all day.
Ever since then, I've been a frequent client of hers. She will never recommend a product or facial that's not suitable for your skin type. I trust her judgment each time. She's very knowledgeable in all the products that she uses and she will give you a few pointers to do at home. My favourite facials are the glycolic peels and the microdermabrasion as results are seen immediately. Last but not least, Shelly is very professional and is fully committed to making sure you leave looking great!
Lisa.C Oakville. April 2009
I have never done Lash Extensions before but I thought I would give it a try. I was really nervous at first because I have heard that it would be painful and would make me cry for even 2 hours after the service. Some of my friends have had bad experiences where it wasn't done how they wanted it to and couldn't take it off. So i was pretty skeptical.
Shelly really listened to all my concerns and reassured me that the procedure would be a breeze. She was right. It was quick, simple and magical! My lashes were transformed! I didn't need to wear any more makeup which saved me so much time. Shelly is truly fabulous and talented! She really had the best system down pat!
Her pricing is also amazing! I didn't have to pay $300+! She only charged me $55!
The Eye Makeup Remover she sells is also great! I never had to worry about my lash extensions loosening at all.
I will definitely be back for more!

I discovered Shelly online a few months ago and became a Brazilian waxing client. It was my first experience in venturing into this new found service and must comment that I was made to feel very relaxed just from reading her website description and testimonials. Everything that was claimed on her site was accurately depicted, and upon my first arrival at her studio I was made to feel so comfortable and relaxed that although the treatment was foreign, I felt little discomfort.
Shelly was careful to explain everything she was doing and the reason why. She provided helpful tips for after care and maintenance which prolongs the time period between appointments.
I have continued to be treated at recommended intervals and feel as though I am visiting a friend rather than going to a clinical appointment.
For those considering the procedure for the first time, you can find no better technician or studio to visit. This is absolutely a first class facility and owner/operator who promotes cleanliness and comfort to her clients.
james m August 2009
I found out about Shelly over the internet and read great testimonials and loved the fact that cleanliness and hygiene is important for her. As this was my first time getting a Brazilian wax, I wanted to make sure I would get the best and I was not disappointed at all. I didn't feel uncomfortable and though I was a bit nervous, she made it very easy for me to relax. Her home is welcoming and she is such a sweet gal! I would recommend everyone to go to her, the job though not completely painless was quick and I left her studio with a great big smile :) I'm more than satisfied with her services, professional and friendly and I will definitely come back. Thanks Shelly, I'm one very happy happy customer!
Andrea A, Mississauga August 2009
Thank you Shelly for the amazing Waxing you did for me! Good luck & my best wishes for you.
Aspen, GTA August 2009
I had the Lash Extensions Service done recently and it was SOOOO incredible!! I didn't even shed a tear! No pain or irritation and the whole procedure was so easy and quick. Shelly is so precise and really listens to what you want. Everyone loved my lashes so much too! I have referred all my friends and family to her! I even went to Cuba with them and they stayed perfect the whole entire time through all the heat and water.
Elizabeth G, Toronto October 2009
I have been a happy and satisfied client for many months now, but feel I must offer my view after my latest session Nov.4th. I had in many previous sessions availed myself of the waxing treatment and my expectations were always exceeded. On this visit I decided to also seek the benefits of a facial. I have had over the years approx. 4 facials, and believe me none could compare with Shellys' treatment. I was not made to feel as if I was in a factory setting. She took great pains to explain every of several stages and to describe and deconstruct each of the chemical preparations that she used. Additionally, Shelly also explained the beneficial effects related to each application. It was without a doubt the best session I was ever subjected to especially with her constant explanations of the process without having to interrupt the treatment. Also quiet pleasant was the cost which one will not be able to compare to the other salons which feature this service. Shelly's studio is beyond compare for cleanliness, on time sessions, and expert treatments from a very capable technician who is a friend to all of her clients.
Guys, go for a facial !!! you will not regret it!
james, Aurora November 2009
thanks for today! I came in pretty nervous tbh hah, but you made me feel really comfortable.
Hope the hairs grow back soon so I can see you again!! ^o^
-Zack- Toronto November 2009
I can't wear the glue on false lashes as they irritate my eyes so I decided to give the Lash Extensions a try. I wanted super full, long and luscious lashes. Shelly did such a great job! I went in not knowing what to expect, and she gave me the best customer service ever. I get so many compliments now and its great getting out of bed and not having to worry about putting on makeup. My girlfriends all loved my lashes so much that they all go to Shelly now too.
Thank you so much.
Emilie R, Mississauga November 2009
Thank you so much for the AMAZING job you did on my make-up and on my mom's make-up. So many ppl came up to me and commented on how nice it looked. You made me feel like a Barbie on my special day - THANK YOU!!!

The Nufree Hair Removal works great! Just wanted to give you some feedback. I sometimes get minor bumps after a waxing session even though you're so gentle because my skin is just so sensitive, but not with Nufree. I'm hooked! It also took out all the stubborn hairs so much more effectively and quickly too! I'm impressed!
- Dan S, Oshawa, July 2010
Are your instruments sterilized?
YES! All instruments are sterilized according to Heath Canada Standards.Single usage disposable instruments/tools are also used.
Do you reuse your wax with every Client?
NO! Every Client gets their own brand new can of wax labelled with their name.
Are your Waxing procedures irritating to the skin?
My Special Gentle Waxing techniques will ensure that your skin will have minimal irritation/redness and redness. I use a special barrier cream to protect your skin prior to waxing; therefore the wax doesn't actually touch your skin. Your skin will NOT TEAR! Many people say my Special Techniques are also 50% less painful.
However, if you have super intolerable sensitive skin, or very coarse hairs, then NUFREE Hair Removal may be the better method for you.
How do you prevent ingrown hairs?
With every Body Waxing Service, I will always give you a FREE exfoliating glove and/or back loofah to ensure that your skin stays healthy and smooth.
You may also wish to purchase the Finipil Cream if you are very ingrown prone.
How do I choose the Facial Treatment that is right for me?
I will always analyze your skin first before recommending the appropriate and most beneficial Facial Treatment for you.
What products do you use for the Facial Treatments?
I ONLY use the top Prestige Natural Clinical Skin Care & Cosmeceutical brands for my Facials including RVB Holistic Beauty 100% Eco-Cert Natural Organics, Herbalist Anna Lotan, Casmara, Swiss Med, Emergin C, Skin Accents, Elemis, Laura Mercier, Stella McCartney CARE Organics, Darphin, Sisley, Pangea Organics.
What products do you use for the Makeup Applications?
I ONLY use the top Prestige brands in my Makeup Kit including Jane Iredale Pure Minerals, Prescriptives, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Christian Dior, Nars, Pout, Stila.
