have had such a wonderful
experience with Zap!!!! Germaine
is so wonderful I make
appointments to see her every week
(and sometimes even twice a week).
She makes me feel so calm and
relaxed I look forward to each of
our sessions and the results have

This is by far the best electrolysis
place in LA. I wasn't able to see
Tina my last time there and was
treated by Anna. She is wonderful
and did a great job (I always worry
when someone new works on me,
whether it's haircuts or
electrolysis). So, I can now
recommend either Anna or Tina. They
are both terrific. Just remember for
permanent hair removal it takes more
than one visit.
- Stephanie M.
When I began electrolysis at Zap,
I seriously had tree trunks
growing above my upper lip.
Germaine has zapped them away. I
went from worrying that I'd never
be kissed again to mustache free
and super confident.
Germaine is funny, kind and has a
great way of making electric shock
fun. Plus she gets results. She
deserves five stars indeed!
- Suzanne C.
This is the best electrolysis place
in the area. Tina is personable,
meticulous and generous with her
She was out of town recently, so I
made an appointment with Anna. Anna
was truly wonderful, didn't miss a
hair, worked quickly, and gave a
thorough, relaxing post-treatment
care. She listened to what I needed
and was patient and professional.
Tina's schedule tends to be full, so
if you want equally great service,
definitely see Anna!
- Anonymous A.
There are no
words that can express how pleased
and greatful I am with the Zap
staff. The progress I've seen in
my face in the past months it's
amazing. I go to Germaine and she
is an extremely kind, awesome, and
- Luisa U.
Everyone at Zap is extremely nice
and personable. As most would
expect, good people= good service.
They are flexible with appts and
days and times. Also, being the busy
person I am, I needed to reschedule
a few times and I was always treated
nicely and every effort was made to
accomodate me. The reminder calls
are awesome, too.
- Rohya H.
Back when I
began my research on electrolysis,
I was very self-conscious and
embarrassed about someone seeing
my unwanted hair. UGH! From the
very first time Tina worked her
magic on me, I felt completely
(without a doubt) comfortable. I
was neither embarrassed nor
self-conscious. In fact, I've been
going to Tina for a few years now
(intermittently - on different
areas), and my self-esteem has
improved! Not only do I reap the
benefits of having no unwanted
hair, but I see that there are
many, many other people in the
same boat as me (battling the war
against unwanted hair)! It helps
to put things in perspective.
Tina is a great conversationalist,
will play the type of music you
want to hear, has NEVER hurt me
during the procedure, has a very
clean office, and shares my love
of animals (I know, I know - off
the subject). She is very flexible
and accommodating with scheduling
(and is available on weekends -
YES). I highly recommend Tina for
electrolysis! She also has great
connections in the skin care
business. Do NOT hesitate to give
her a shot! You won't be
- Anna S.
I am one of those people who really
likes to do their research before I
dive into something new. I found
Tina on the Electrology Association
of California's website and she was
listed as their Vice President so I
know she would know her stuff! Her
initial consultation was
outstanding, explaining how the hair
growth works and how the timing of
my appointments would maximize the
results. I have been to other
electrogists and the progress was
just not as effective. As I
continued to see Tina, it was clear
that she keeps up on the latest info
and equipment because she is always
adjusting to make her process the
My underarms are totally hair free
and my skin actually feels softer. I
have moved on to the bikini area and
who knows what else - it's just that
rewarding! I was so excited in
talking up her skills, that at least
3 of my best friends now go to her
religiously as well...

When my regular
electrologist was unavailable 3
months ago I found an alternative
- Tina Reynolds at
www.zapahair.com. She did my
complete treatment in one session,
as opposed to the two my regular
electrologist always takes. I
assumed she had cut corners
somewhere and I would have to go
back sooner, but this was not the
case. I was hair free for 3
months, but had paid half the
amount I usually pay. Her
treatment rooms are spotlessly
clean and it is altogether an
excellent experience. I highly
- Miv E.
I have been going here for a couple
of years now and all I can say is
Tina is the best at what she
does...electrolysis because not only
does she take away all the unwanted
hair but it doesn't hurt me one bit.
All the hairs that she has zapped
away have not come back so now I can
work on other places. If you are
looking for a very clean and
friendly environment look no further
this is the place to be.
- Cara D.
I can't say
enough good things about Zap! Tina
is so personable and really takes
the time to clearly explain
everything she's doing. You just
really know you're in good hands
with her, her work is great.
Lovely office, everyone is really
nice and they are always willing
to accommodate my schedule.
- Traci S.
I'm very happy with the results of
my underarm hair removal. Tina is
great at what she does and explains
the process and the biology of hair
growth. Tina is very organized,
always on time and keeps track of
the progress. The office is easy to
find and park and very nicely
- G. M.
fabulous. The service is
professional and the business
well-run and hygienic. Second and
subsequent visits to Zap have been
even better! I am seeing a lot of
progress with controlling my hair.
They are very flexible and
friendly. I highly recommend this
- Amanda M.
After years of procrastination, I
started seeing Tina a couple of
years ago. I now regret waiting so
long. I have had an excellent
experience with electrolysis and
Tina. She is extremely knowledgeable
and made me feel comfortable from
day one. Whenever my mom comes to
town, she makes an appointment with
Tara and speaks very highly of her
too. A parking space in Westwood is
hard to beat too. I love this place!
- Dawn S.
I can't even
begin to describe how great a
place this is! Tina, Tara and
Chava are incredible and work very
hard to create a comfortable,
welcoming environment. I have been
seeing Tina for two years(110
hours and counting!!) and with her
recent expansion of the business,
Tara and Chava are always there if
i need to book a different time or
want to expand my time for that
week. We always have a fun
time(hard to believe, since you're
getting zapped, but we always put
on Jack FM and play name that
tune!!) They are all extremely
knowledgeable and caring and I
have recommended them to many
friends...and they are good
friends, so i wouldn't do that if
they weren't the best!!
- Julie F.
Tina really knows her business and
how to take care of her clients. She
explained the electrolysis process
clearly and practices her hair
removal with attention to detail and
total focus. Zap is a very clean
salon and provides a pleasant,
relaxed and calming atmosphere for
what can be a sensitive and private
procedure. I highly recommend Tina
- Laura T.
I used to go for
electrolysis at Belle Visage but
Amalia no longer does
electrolysis. Drat! After much
debating on the many LA choices
for electrolysis I decided on Zap.
Tina and Tara are both great. Very
professional and they both work in
a timely manner. Electrolysis
works. Price is average, about the
same as other places I researched.
I purchased a package.
- Tracy B.
Being new to electrolysis, I went
online to search out a salon in LA
and was very impressed with Zap's
website. It was clear that Tina, the
owner, has a lot of experience and
training. Plus, I liked how
committed she is to helping animals
find good homes.
Anyway, I have only had great
experiences with Tara who is
competent and really nice. I have
been pretty satisfied with how
effective the treatment is; I have
really noticed a difference in a
short amount of time.
They are flexible with appointment
days and times and I appreciate the
extra touch of the reminder call.
The salon is clean and comfortable,
and I feel it is reasonably priced.
- Penina P.
To begin with, this is an amazing
place! Tina is one of the nicest
people I have ever met! She truly
cares about you as her client, is
ALWAYS receptive, responsible, and
gentle. I am so glad that I chose
Zap for electrolysis- I would have
TRULY missed out if I had gone
somewhere else. This is a truly
exceptional business! I give it my
most enthusiastic recommendation!
Trust me- you won't be disappointed.
- Neveen E.
I can't believe
I'm coming out and admitting that
I have my hair removed. As a man,
I was pretty embarrassed to be
getting my back hair removed. But
Zap made me feel totally as ease.
And they have many male clients,
so I'm not the only one. I started
seeing Tina two months ago and
can't believe the progress so far.
I have seen Tara a few times as
well. They are both awesome!
The office is always super clean
too, as I am a germophobe.
Five big stars !!!!

So I'm Italian (read: hairy). When I
was little, my cousin and I used to
make fun of our great aunt Alice's
whiskers. Not too funny anymore. My
cousin just finished her laser hair
removal. After hearing my boyfriend
rave about Tina, I decided to
explore the electrolysis route.
I learned more from one phone call
with Tina than I had from weeks of
research on the internet. She's
super knowledgeable and very willing
to spend time to educate. I learned
that there are many similarities
between the two methods--both
require multiple treatments to
eliminate hairs in different stages
of growth. But I decided to go with
electrolysis instead of laser for a
few reasons. The biggest is that on
your face, laser can actually
stimulate the growth of peach fuzz.
I personally don't want to take the
chance of replacing dark, thick
hairs with light, fuzzy ones.
Despite my new hair removal
education, I was still nervous as I
arrived for my first appointment.
Tina immediately put me at ease and
explained everything so that there
were no surprises. The only surprise
was that it turned out to be less
painful than I had feared--for me
the pain was on par with tweezing. I
was quite red and did hurt for about
an hour post-treatment, but that's a
small price to pay to not turn into
my great aunt Alice.
- Shana P.
Tina is great.
She makes the time go by fast,
while zapping away. The place is
clean, comfortable and
professional. There is always
plenty of street parking and I
think there is parking in the
back. She makes you feel
comfortable and relaxed, and the
prices are very reasonable. I've
been going for the past 3-4 months
with great results.
- Amy H.
I've been with Zap - specifically
Tina, Zap's owner - for over two
years now, and I can't praise her
She has made the whole experience as
pleasant as humanly possibly, is
always nice, and always puts the
clients needs first. But even more
importantly than being a great
person, she's extremely
knowledgeable and skilled. In all
the two years there, not a single
The salon is also always tidy and
neatly decorated - it's a place
where you can feel relaxed.
Price-wise, Zap's definitely a good
choice too. It's not too expensive,
yet not so cheap that they have to

This place is
AMAZING!!! I am a regular of Tara
and both she and Zap are a gift
from the heavens above. I have
suffered from 'peach fuzz' and
worse and have been waxing and
plucking unsightly hair where
women should not have hair for
more than 10 years. It got to be
too overwhelming and was affecting
my spontaneity, confidence, and
constantly making me strategize
how to avoid certain situations. I
said enough, and leary about the
laser, I decided to get a
consultation based on the reviews
on Yelp. Tara was the first person
I met with there and was
immediately hooked. She makes you
feel like you have known her for
ever and makes you so comfortable
to bare your hairy soul because
she shares stories of her own
struggles and knows exactly what
you're going through. I can
honestly say she is the only
person on this planet that has
seen me in all my hairy glory!
I did foolishly venture one time
to another electrolysis salon and
all I can say is thank goodness I
came to Zap first or I would never
have done electrolysis again! It
surely doesn't feel good but Tara
has perfected her technique, gives
you ice, and makes it the least
painful as possible. I can say
this with certainty because I
tried elsewhere and nearly died
from the torture and ended up
telling the woman to stop. Zap is
a bit far for me but I wouldn't
think of going anywhere else
again. You get a great, private
session, a parking spot, and a
friendly reminder of your
appointment the day before.
Tara is amazing and I am ever
grateful to have found her. She
has done wonders for me in terms
of my confidence and also
relieving me of the burden of
constantly worrying about having
to tweeze, wax and basically hide.
This place is class all the way
and the best money I can spend on
myself. Thank goodness for Tara
and Zap, I don't know what I would
do without them!!!
- Amy V.
Zap is a hygienic, professional and
skin friendly electrolysis service.
Chava makes going for your session
fun. she is very friendly, gentle
and thorough in her work. thumbs up
for the dedication.

Tina is a great
electrologist! I have been going
to her for over 2 years, treating
various areas and adding more and
more areas, and have nothing but
good things to say. She uses the
most up-to-date equipment (Apilus)
and all popular types of
thermolysis, blend). Her office is
always exceptionally clean, she is
available evenings, and she always
calls the day before to remind you
about your appt. I would recommend
her to anyone for permanent hair
I also had great results with
laser at a doctor's office in
Beverly Hills and it's a great
permanent solution for dark coarse
hair, especially on large areas.
Electrolysis is great for fine or
blond hair, but laser is a great
way to go for large areas with
coarse hair (faster, so cheaper).
Of course, make sure to do your
research well to find someone who
knows what they're doing, has the
right equipment, and cares about
your results whether you're doing
electrolysis (like Tina) or laser.
- Irena C.
Tina Reynolds runs this place. She's
terrific - nice, thorough,
organized, knowledgable, good
bedside manner. For those who still
electrologize, this is one of the
few good places in L.A. Her prices
aren't necessarily low, but remember
it's your skin and you get what you
