Waxing expert Ashly Clinger frees men and women from unwanted stubble in her homey studio, Face & Body Skin Care Retreat. She is such a pro at this form of depilation that she has recorded an instructional DVD to teach aspiring waxers the techniques and theory of her craft. Her website educates clients with tips such as avoiding caffeine for 12 hours before the appointment or how to write a nice breakup letter to the unwanted body hair. As a licensed aesthetician, Ashly also performed facials, body scrubs, and ear candling.

The aestheticians call upon cleansing and styling salves from top-notch brands such as Bioelements and Demalogica to fuel their feats of beautification.
