Leah’s Waxworks Pty Ltd was established in 1992 in the southern suburb of Hurstville. Leah’s concept originated from her friendly personality in wanting to keep her clients happy by giving them treatments they wanted at an affordable price. She always gave her clients more for less, so that she could get a higher turnover of people which allowed her to keep busy. She accommodated for clients all around Sydney. Her prices were so affordable that clients would travel all the way to Hurstville to get a full leg, brazilian and mini facial for twenty dollars. Westfield’s then noticed her high demand of clientele where Leah had been sub-leasing within a small room at the back of a hair salon and followed on to offer her a lease in the Hurstville Westfield’s for a 3 year term with an incentive of $10,000 towards the fit out. This then lead Leah to open more salons in Bondi Junction, Miranda, Eastgardens, Parramatta, Burwood and Mid-City. She stills plays a major role within her company. She employs forty-five staff members and also sponsors certain therapists from France, England and Ireland. She also has created her own soft strip wax formula and will continue to grow in the Australian beauty industry for years to come.

Just wanted to say Amber gives me the best service. She always has a smile, makes me feel comfortable and explains everything.
I've been getting Brazilian for years and had done laser years ago. When the prices went up I thought it was worth paying $15 extra to laser again since I don't get much hair growth $35 seemed too much as I used to pay $25. She was so professional and convinced me into doing laser again without pressuring me.
So happy with her and her service =)

'Hi There, I just wanted to send a quick thank you to Nicole from the Miranda store. With a very busy up and coming weekend planned, I had fit in a leg wax in my lunch hour. Nicole was very understanding about the time pressure, and was very prompt with the service. Her professionalism and attention to detail was amazing so just wanted to say thank you so much for the great service. You rock!!'

"Yesterday I had a waxing procedure done by Kate (Italian girl).
Must I say, what an asset to Leahs Wax Works she is. At times when getting waxed I feel uncomfortable, but with Kate's warm personality I forgot everything. Kate's customer service skills are amazing and she is clearly passionate about her work as she has fantastic attention to detail and a great technique which see's no patches of hair missed. I have been apprehensive in coming back to Leah's a few times after some bad experiences with missed areas of hair, wax and oil left on my body. But as long as Kate is working at the Bondi Junction Salon I will be returning on a regular basis and requesting her.
I truly think Kate should be recognized for her outstanding work."

"It gives me pleasure to express my satisfaction with my recent New York Facial”treatment at your salon.
I am a 60 years + female with sensitive ageing skin. I experienced this treatment in early June.
As a retired beauty therapist, I have experienced the best, both in salons and department stores both local and overseas.
I have never had such amazing results, after the 1 hour treatment my skin looked hydrated, clear, alive and calm, and no redness was evident.
After 3 days the improvement is obvious to all.I cannot wait have another “New York Facial.
