It is imperative that skin care services should be done by Licensed professionals, with years of experience and continuing earned trainings. Her continuing education is for the best interest
MARIA L. DUQUETTE is experienced for more than 25 years with all earned education and advanced classes. It is the expertise and training of the person that makes the whole service less uncomfortable.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS PAINLESS HAIR WAXING UNLESS THERE IS NUMBING IN THEIR WAX. Take note that we are dealing with hair on the skin from the ROOTS and depending on the skin, there is no way it can be painless but can be less painful.
Waxing is a very DELICATE service. You can get burned, injured, cut, irritated and infected. Depending on the sensitiviy of your skin, you may get irritations after waxing specially
to virgin hair and shaved hair; this is normal. Applying Aloe Vera, or Tend Skin or
Cortizone topical will help heal the skin.
****MARIA is very strict with SANITATION. WE USE GLOVES IN EVERY SINGLE TREATMENT
AND WE DEFINITELY DO NOT DOUBLE DIP STICKS IN ALL OUR WAXING SERVICES, FACE
AND BODY (double dipping stick means using only one stick in applying wax on the skin per client.
Skin produces fluid and double dipping sticks will contaminate the wax). OUR SKIN CARE TOOLS/BRUSHES ARE ONLY USED PER CLIENT.****
Maria is now BACK IN D.C. FULL TIME as an INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR working solely for herself at DANIEL'S HAIR SALON in DOWNTOWN area located between 18th and 19th on M St. (1831
M St., NW, Washington, D.C. 20036) Please see our Gallery link.
