Sassy Miss Waxy
Fiona, the owner of Sassy Miss Waxy, grooms ladies and gents with custom waxing services, eyebrow design, and facials inside her own home, a cozy abode bedecked in vibrant colors and earth-friendly products. While attending the University of Aesthetics in Chicago, Fiona worked as a makeup artist and body painter; after graduation, she plied her trade at an Aveda salon and spa and eventually discovered her love for hair removal at the Windy City waxing boutique Trim. Though she specializes in Brazilian waxing, Fiona eradicates fuzz all across the body with equal aplomb, employing single-use waxing sticks, essential-oil-infused Alexandria hard and soft wax, and hypoallergenic, paraben-free sugar paste. Each beautifying service takes place in a private treatment room where sunlight spills through green-draped windows and drenches the walls in yellow. Eclectic country-chic décor—including daisies reaching for the ceiling from slim glass vases—spices up the space as Fiona keeps clients at ease with casual conversation and dead-on impersonations of the moon eclipsing the sun.
