Organic Sugaring Center's hair-removal paste is so organic, you could eat it: it's made from just sugar, lemon, and water. This recipe makes the process gentler on skin, as does the paste's ability to be applied at body temperature. Plus, the sugar adheres only to hair, not live skin cells, which can make sugaring less painful than other forms of hair removal, such as waxing or vacuuming it away. What's more, the paste can exfoliate dry, dead cells, and since it's water-soluble, any residue is easily cleaned from the skin. Though Organic Sugaring Center's aestheticians perform full-body treatments for both men and women, they specialize in Brazilians, which can be done in a variety of fun shapes, and completely customized to suit the client's needs.
When looking for ways to pamper and indulge their clients, the aestheticians of Sugaring House draw inspiration from time-honored treatments. They remove unwanted hair by either waxing patches away or by using centuries-old sugaring techniques to naturally leave the skin smooth and stubble-free. Using organic skincare products whenever possible, the aestheticians also perform customized facial treatments intended to even out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, exfoliate away impurities, and reduce the signs of enlarged pores. Sugaring House also offers massage appointments, and the therapists can alleviate muscle aches by using flowing Swedish techniques, focused deep-tissue pressure, or a combination of Swedish strokes and assisted yoga stretches.
The Sugaring House is staffed by a licensed aesthetician and technicians well versed in the art of sugar waxing. This hair-removal procedure favors Sugaring House's own sugar paste over wax, which is used to remove body hair while producing less irritation than other methods. The staff services both men and women with hair removal treatments for the full body; they also offer specialty shape-waxing for the bikini area, which yields designs such as landing strips, triangles, and custom lettering. The team also offers anti-aging and acne facials, and the space sets a relaxing tone for the experience with soft-lit private rooms adorned with flowers and plush treatments beds.
Boloco aspires to delight diners with the unexpected and strives to take care of its employees and the planet in the process. The Boston-based business first opened in 1997 as Under Wraps. But in 2005, it changed its name to Boloco, realizing wraps incited some terrible feelings - often involving alfalfa sprouts. With the fresh name came a new mantra, "Globally Inspired Burritos."
Despite winning an award for "stupidest name change", Boloco's menu has steadfastly offered customers globally inspired burritos and burrito bowls alongside smoothies and shakes, such as the Jimmy Carter, infused with all-natural peanut butter and premium ice cream. Boloco also uses eco-friendly practices, recognizing that today that might mean corn cups and utensils, but tomorrow it could mean driving to work in cars fueled by guacamole.
Be forewarned: Simply Bliss Salon is not your average frou-frou, super-chic upper Northwest haircut and style salon. Located on the lower floor of a massive apartment building, some who enter might be put off by the initial aesthetics of the place, which nearly-bare walls and simple floors. But just as beauty is more than skin deep, don’t let first impressions fool you; customers who stay for a service tend to walk out the door feeling quite lovely. Cuts and color are specialties here, offered at discounted prices when compared to many of the high-end spaces that exist around the city. Stylists work primarily with organic coloring products that maintain the natural moisture and protein balance of the hair, and Brazilian keratin treatments are also available, as are waxing services.
