"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who?s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that?s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
Beams of sunlight pour through the windows of Newport Hair Design, bouncing off ornate mirrors, peering through tall plants, and gliding across sleek, cherry-wood cabinets. The salon?s talented stylists mimic the modern aesthetic of their ornate styling stations as they shear inches from locks, light up hairstyles with gleaming colors, and level out frizzy locks with japanese-straightening and keratin treatments. After outmoded hairdos have been updated, manicurists take the beauty-boosting baton and run with it, trimming, filing and reshaping the nails on fingers and toes. Waxing technicians complete top-to-bottom makeovers by removing hair from the face, limbs, and Brazilian regions, leaving the body as smooth as a figure-skating saxophonist.
