As a licensed waxing technician, Lekisha "Kish" Lyles knows that the little things make a big difference. For instance, she uses a soft, fragrant honey wax for basic areas, and she uses a lemon hard wax for more sensitive areas such as the bikini line and underarms. She also takes great pride in cleanliness, never re-dipping or reusing wax. Kish works out of Tu La 2 Nail Salon, where clients can solicit her expertise for a clean and smooth Brazilian wax and swift brow wax, as well as waxing for the legs, back, and other more intimate areas.
