Wax On has been offering stellar strand-stripping services to discerning hair producers since 1999 from its fun spa environment. There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional waxen maidens at Wax On. Like the helpful, friendly staff chants during their pre-day huddle—if it has hair, it can be made bare. The careful and pleasant purveyors of slickness will use their years of experience and connection with the dark side to target overgrown sprouts and diligently bid them adieu. Put your best face forward for your next photo shoot or photo firing squad with a lip ($15) or eyebrow ($15) wax. Otherwise, opt for a full leg ($50) or Brazilian ($70) treatment to improve your hydrodynamics during a summer of late-night skinny-snorkeling. The waxery also harvests hair from the skin of self-conscious gents looking to quietly rid their neck ($20), chest ($25), or bikini zone ($45) of unwelcome sasquatch fur.

The Love Lab founder and renowned massage-industry expert Meagan Holub has helped some pretty discriminating clientele to relax and unwind. From Forbes CEOs and professional athletes to rock stars and royalty, her therapeutic massages have melted away the stress that is inherent in any A lister's life. According to Holub's blog, gift certificates for one of her massages were given away in VIP gift bags at the 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney, so they made their way into the hands of celebrity musicians, such as the Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, and Coldplay.
But Holub talks massage with as many down-to-earth, everyday people as she does famous folks, thanks to a compassionate streak she's demonstrated since childhood. As a young girl and teenager, she rescued stray animals, volunteered at Easter Seals camp, became a physical-therapy assistant, and served as an aide for a person with paraplegia. Today her passion for helping others translates into The Love Lab's services, including group massage classes and private massage lessons that teach individuals and couples to execute the same techniques so sought after by Hollywood stars. Holub and her team of certified massage therapists also instruct employees at workplace events, where they demonstrate stress-relief techniques, which come in handy the next time the boss requires mandatory overtime to help her solve the Sunday crossword.
