With eight years of experience in the beauty industry, Back 2 Body owner Andrea Bartley directs her staff in skillful techniques that put clients instantly at ease, whether they're stopping by for skincare, waxing, massages, or sunless tanning. One of the only Kansas City waxing salons that offers full-body male waxing, Back 2 Body uses eight types of wax (depending on skin type) and a numbing spray beforehand to curb pain and prevent offensive swearing jags. One's back ($30 and up), glutes ($20 and up), and Brazilian ($50 and up) can all be made bare. Compliment your newly hair-free exterior with a melanin-marinade airbrush tan that will keep you bronzed for days ($25 per session). Or, put your best face forward with a facial ($55-$70), such as the “turn back time”, which layers on and massages in moisturizing products, creating a time warp that lets skin relive the childhood it spent longing to be the soft fur on an Alaskan sheepdog. The “watch your back” facial, a sugar-butter treat for the tail-facing torso, is a client favorite.
Because Back 2 Body aims to help each guest find the beauty-bolstering treatment he or she seeks, the shop's services are highly customized. And the environment is casual; flip-flops are welcome, and there's no need to fancy oneself up with makeup, peep-toe heels, or alligator-skin trollywinks.
The beauty experts behind Back2Body turn their clinical and professional training into pampering treatments that revitalize bodies inside and out. Owner Andrea Bartley draws on a nursing background and eight years of experience as she purges pores and removes unwanted fuzz with facials and waxing. She also crafts custom airbrush tans that bless skin with new hues ranging from light bronze glows to deep island bronzes. The studio also offers smooth sculpt treatments, which mitigates problem pudge by stimulating collagen production and removing toxins without invasive methods such as surgery, injections, or oddly in-depth questionnaires.
