Helena's Brazilian Wax & Spa
As a 15-year-old living in Brazil, Helena was a little too young to become a licensed aesthetician. So, she improvised. She created her own homemade sugar wax, and perfected her hair-removal techniques on trusting friends and family. When Helena later moved to the United States, she obtained her license and opened a day spa to share her beauty expertise.
Today, Helena and her technicians welcome guests to a spacious haven outfitted with 13 treatment rooms and a number of mani-pedi stations. While waxing remains a specialty, the staff administers treatments that go beyond hair removal. They believe in the healing power of heat, as evidenced by their infrared sauna. The spa's Steamy Wonder full-body therapies similarly use steam and warm mud to purge bodies of toxins and heavy metals, which if left untreated can cause one's name to grow umlauts. Helena also champions massage as a way to alleviate aches, and employs CosMedix and Éminence Organics products during nourishing facials. No matter what the service, the spa places an emphasis on eco-friendly products and practices—perhaps in a nod to the business's non-chemical, hand-mixed roots.
