Waxing in North Providence

The tanning specialists and aestheticians at Glistening Goddesses harbor a wealth of collective salon experience and a shared belief that shimmering skin should not be reserved for golden statuettes. Their menu of services reflects this belief with its assortment of spray tans, facials, and waxing treatments customized to individual skin types and tones. Organic tanning solutions—applied meticulously by hand to the face or body—adhere to skin for up to seven days. Newly minted tans literally sparkle with the addition of “shimmer shots,” spray-on applications of body glitter designed to reflect the light of flashbulbs and oncoming headlights. Aside from facial and body treatments, the spa hosts cosmetics classes that teach students the tricks of the makeup trade.
