Waxing in Palm Desert

Select Local Merchants

Pink Tanning & Body Spa’s sole aesthetician, Danielle Pinkerton, has been featured in ieStyle Magazine for her results-driven, personalized facials that leave human frontispieces glowing with the help of organic and vegan Osea products. When applied by such a professional, Osea's skin-nourishing salves seep into pores to deliver vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids derived from the earth, sea, and cereal-box prize pouches. The seasoned aesthetician's repertoire of epidermal services also includes organic body scrubs that render skin silky smooth and merciful waxing treatments that oust unwanted hair with fragrant Escential wax. Her steady hand can also augment skin color during custom spray-tanning sessions held in her salon or in the comfort of the client's home through her mobile service.

Q&A with Linda, Owner

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?

When setting your appointment, you may request to upgrade your service to deep tissue, hot stones, or add a back/body scrub with hot salts. [You can] also experience invigorating aromatherapy with our hot steamed towels that are first dipped in essential oils before applied to the body.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?

We are independent contractors, and therefore, have flexible schedules to accommodate morning and evening appointments.

What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?

We have received wonderful five-star reviews online. Those are always exciting to find and know how much we are appreciated!

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We can accommodate couples, [massage is] the perfect Valentine's gift. You don't want just anyone trying out their new waxing techniques for a Brazilian wax! [I have] extensive training specializing in Brazilian waxing for women and men, and also provide skincare services.

Shears vs. Razors: The Fine Line Between Textures

In addition to scissors or clippers, your stylist may pull out a razor. Learn what it does with Groupon?s look.

Shears are often considered the tool of the trade, but stylists carry an oft-forgotten but equally important tool in their arsenal?the straight razor. Deciding which one to use depends on a variety of factors, the texture and density of your hair chief among them. Though shears can create virtually any style from any angle, the result is always a straight, blunt cut?lending the hair definition but potentially making it look thick. A razor, on the other hand, cuts with a single fine blade, forming a softer, feathered appearance more akin to a peacock's majestic bouffant.

For people with fine to medium hair with a fairly smooth texture, this can create a dynamic, tossable style with lots of movement. If you have coarse or very fine hair, however, scissors might still be the better bet, as the razor might end up making it frizzy. Curly hair raises somewhat of a dilemma; though its coarse texture seems to demand shears, the tendency for ringlets to accumulate as a single, thick mass means a razor might be able to reduce the hair's weight and boost its movement and playfulness.
