What my clients are saying 5 stars

I have been a client of Isabelle’s since before she opened her own salon, and I can’t imagine going to any other esthetician for any kind of waxing.

There is no one else I would trust with my skin! Her facials are my annual birthday gift to myself, and I have never been disappointed in any of the skin care products she has recommended.

I have been going to Isabelle for waxing and facials for more than 15 years, and in all that time, every encounter has been pleasant and comfortable, and I have been super-satisfied with the results. Isabelle observes and educates, professionally and gently, as she works on your skin.

Isabelle is well trained (in France), very skilled, and has great experience working with all types of skin and skin problems. Her salon is clean, classy (soft music and fresh flowers), and all the equipment and surfaces that I have seen in the salon are extremely clean and modern. She does sell skin care products but she never pushes them. I trust her completely, and I always leave her salon feeling uplifted from her cheerful company and her excellent service.

I’ve been waxing my legs for 20 years now so I’ve experienced more waxers than I would ever wish upon anyone and Ms. Isabelle is by far the most meticulous, efficient and reliable one I’ve ever had. I’ve been going to her for a couple years now and only go to someone else when she can’t meet my last minute emergency requests.

Her office in Montclair is very clean, pleasant, and she actually plays surprisingly good music. I suppose she makes the experience as pleasant as is possible and her price is very reasonable – maybe because she works for herself and doesn’t have other staff or a lot of overhead. A part of me doesn’t want to let the secret out as it may make those last minute appointment requests less likely, but she does good work so it’s only fair to spread the word.

I’ve been going to to Isabelle Gerard for many years now and decided I should share her with the rest of the world! I go to see her for waxing primarily although i also love her face and skin products and ONLY use those that I buy from her. I trust her so much, I sent my daughter to her as well for her skin issues.

I’ve unfortunately had to go to other people for waxing on occasion when I’ve forgotten to get an appointment before leaving for a beach vacation. It’s always a disaster and I’m much better now about making sure I get in to see her before I leave. She’s very thorough, fast, kind and does her work in a clean and lovely setting in Montclair. My eyebrows are NEVER overdone, but look perfect. She’s very good with bikini and thigh waxing and I can stay distracted by chatting with Isabelle while she’s working. She’s French and I love her dry sense of humor. I’m glad she’s younger than me, as I expect to be going to her for many, many more years!
