During her 12-year career she has designed the coifs of models for runway and editorial shoots and represented companies such as Wella Professional Color and Sebastian as a top stylist and educator. The smooth, knotted updos and Brazilian blowouts in her portfolio reveal an impressive manual dexterity and a penchant for sleek, Scrunchie-free looks. Wang exhibits her artistry within the elegant KE Salon, where a pop-art sensibility is glammed up with cheeky, crystal chandeliers and antique Asian furniture and art.
At The Wax Parlor, staffers spend their entire day primarily focused on only one thing: waxing. While whisking away hair on the body or face during one of their services, they uphold rigid sanitary standards, never double dipping or flat-out licking a wax stick once they?ve used it. They also stock their salon and online boutique with numbing cream for those looking to diminish as much discomfort as possible.
The only non-waxing service they offer is airbrush tanning, which can put the finishing touch on a new, hair-free look.
