At Glamour Puss, resident aesthetician Sara pampers her clients with a choice of three personalized hair-removal services. For smaller areas, such as chins and sideburns, she can lift unwanted strands right from the follicle with threading or apply a sugaring paste made from pure sugar, water, and lemon. The paste likewise works on larger areas, including bikini and chest, as does Lycon wax, a gentle formula of resins and aromatherapy oils Sara uses to rid bodies of short hairs. After each session, she makes sure to supply clients with whatever tips and tools they need to maintain their results and properly care for their skin.
Beauty specialist Vimaa Patel opened the original IBar to concentrate on threading, body art, and permanent makeup. Now with four different locations, Vimaa ensures her staff is practiced in the ancient technique of eyebrow threading?gently pruning and shaping brows with cotton strings?by requiring potential team members to have at least two years of experience. The technicians also enhance eyes and brows with permanent-makeup treatments and personalize shoulders, ankles, and calves with temporary body art, such as birds, blossoms, or safe combinations.
IBar's intensive focus on a handful of treatments let the staff master their craft, and customers took notice. Within four years, the beauty haven expanded to four locations, each of which maintains the rigorous quality and boutique ambiance of the original.
Today's Groupon polishes tarnished skins, freshens stale skins, and rewards well-behaved skins with a facial peel from SKIN Medical Spa.

She was seven years old today, unemployed, with two playground divorces behind her. Seven candles waited for her outside the locked bathroom door, along with 22 guests and 13 parents with digital cameras. The distant braying of a quaint horn signified the arrival of an underpaid clown. She punched the mirror.
It's tough to relax just before a waxing appointment. With that in mind, renowned architect Chris Kofitsas decided to design Bare to inspire total serenity. To do that, he outfitted the reception area with its own porch swing, hung whimsical lanterns from the ceiling, and covered accent walls with full-sized pictures of nature scenes.
The peaceful, garden-like atmosphere certainly helps put male and female clients at ease, but the wax itself helps just as much. It's a specialized aromatherapy wax that wraps around the hair while avoiding the skin for a much more comfortable experience. In addition to using the wax, the experienced technicians can get rid of unwanted hairs by sugaring them with an all-natural paste, threading them away, or serving them notarized eviction notices. To accommodate clients interested in putting the finishing touches on their newly smoothed looks, they also offer airbrush tans and peels.
